- Announces Fourth Quarter 2017 Financial Results Conference Call Date
WINTER SPRINGS, Fla., Jan. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IRADIMED CORPORATION (NASDAQ:IRMD), a leader in the development of innovative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) medical devices and the only known provider of a non-magnetic intravenous (IV) infusion pump system that is designed to be safe for use during MRI procedures, today announced its financial guidance for the full year and first quarter 2018.
For the full year 2018, the Company expects to report revenue of $29.3 million to $30.0 million, GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.22 to $0.27 and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.33 to $0.38.
For the first quarter 2018, the Company expects to report revenue of $6.8 million to $6.9 million, GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.04 to $0.05 and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share of $0.06 to $0.07.
The Company also announced that it expects to report revenue of approximately $23.1 million for the full year 2017 and $6.7 million for the fourth quarter 2017.
“With growing momentum in customer orders for our IV pump and a solid start for our new MRI compatible patient vital signs monitor, which was FDA 510(k) cleared during the fourth quarter, we are looking forward to a strong 2018,” said Roger Susi, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.
The Company plans to release its 2017 fourth quarter results before the market opens on February 6, 2018.
The Company’s non-GAAP earnings per share guidance excludes stock-based compensation expense, net of tax, which the Company expects to be approximately $1.3 million and $0.3 million for the full year and first quarter 2018, respectively.
Use of non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company believes the use of non-GAAP net income, free cash flow and infrequent income tax items are helpful to our investors. These measures, which we refer to as our non-GAAP financial measures, are not prepared in accordance with GAAP. We calculate non-GAAP net income as net income excluding stock-based compensation expense, net of tax. Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company’s non-cash expenses, we believe that providing non-GAAP financial measures that exclude stock-based compensation expense allows for meaningful comparisons between our operating results from period to period. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for a measure of the Company’s operating performance or liquidity prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and are not indicative of net income or cash provided by operating activities.
About IRADIMED CORPORATION
IRADIMED CORPORATION is a leader in the development of innovative MRI compatible medical devices. We are the only known provider of a non-magnetic IV infusion pump system that is specifically designed to be safe for use during MRI procedures. We were the first to develop an infusion delivery system that largely eliminates many of the dangers and problems present during MRI procedures. Standard infusion pumps contain magnetic and electronic components which can create radio frequency interference and are dangerous to operate in the presence of the powerful magnet that drives an MRI system. Our patented MRidium® MRI compatible IV infusion pump system has been designed with a non-magnetic ultrasonic motor, uniquely-designed non-ferrous parts and other special features in order to safely and predictably deliver anesthesia and other IV fluids during various MRI procedures. Our pump solution provides a seamless approach that enables accurate, safe and dependable fluid delivery before, during and after an MRI scan, which is important to critically-ill patients who cannot be removed from their vital medications, and children and infants who must generally be sedated in order to remain immobile during an MRI scan.
Our 3880 MRI compatible patient vital signs monitoring system has been designed with non-magnetic components and other special features in order to safely and accurately monitor a patient’s vital signs during various MRI procedures. The iRadimed 3880 monitor is rated for operation in magnetic fields up to 30,000 gauss, which means it can operate virtually anywhere in the MRI scanner room. The iRadimed 3880 has a compact, lightweight design, facilitating the transportation of patients from their critical care unit, to the MRI and back, resulting in increased patient safety through uninterrupted vital signs monitoring and decreasing the amount of time critically ill patients are away from critical care units. The features of the iRadimed 3880 include: wireless ECG with dynamic gradient filtering; wireless SpO2 using Masimo® algorithms; respiratory CO2; non-invasive blood pressure; patient temperature, and; optional advanced multi-gas anesthetic agent unit featuring continuous Minimum Alveolar Concentration measurements. The iRadimed 3880 MRI compatible patient vital signs monitoring system has an easy-to-use design, small form factor and unique wireless tablet remote control that allows for the effective communication of patient vital signs information to clinicians located in the MRI control room. Our 3880 MRI compatible patient vital signs monitoring system is currently available to domestic and international customers.
