Subsequent Events to the three months ended March 31, 2021:
“Our record second quarter financial and operating results speak to the continued strength and consistency of our business model. The demand we are seeing across our product mix continues to be robust, and we are pleased to see the strong rebound within our sleep business with the easing of restrictions across our operating footprint. As evidenced by our results, home health continues to experience structural tailwinds, which we expect to provide our business extraordinary opportunity for years to come,” said CEO and Chairman Greg Crawford. “With our rebranding process behind us, we are incredibly enthused to leverage our new name and the existing highly scalable infrastructure platform we have built to accelerate growth. The platform we have allows for organic and inorganic growth to be efficiently layered on to generate economies of scale. We have applied financial resources and operating expertise to build this unparalleled platform which is paramount to executing on our vision. This is a model which we will utilize in our mission to build-out our operating footprint across the country as we scale into a national provider over time.
“Combining our patient centric model, highly scalable platform, strong financial resources, and incredible team, we have the ability make sizeable acquisitions and integrate with ease within new and existing markets. Given the numerous ongoing initiatives at the company level to push our strategy forward, and the most bullish regulatory environment in a decade, our path forward is clear, and we look forward to scaling our business aggressively in the coming months. A special thank you to our entire team, whose unwavering dedication to providing superior clinical care has once again set our business up for success.”
Chief Financial Officer Hardik Mehta added, “I am very proud of our record breaking second quarter financial and operating results, as well as our completed listing on the NASDAQ. As for our results, we are very pleased to see our sustained margin acceleration as we scale the business and also are encouraged by the strong recurring revenue growth that we experienced in the first half of the year. We are also proud of the 13% organic growth achieved year-to-date, and believe with the many organic growth initiatives underway we can continue to build upon this as we move through the year. As it relates to our NASDAQ listing, this is an extraordinary milestone achieved for the Company and its shareholders, and we feel it will assist us in unlocking shareholder value over the long term.
“The infrastructure we have in place allows us to continue to execute our vision operationally, including the addition of two new de-novo locations in the quarter, to build out the operating footprint further. We also anticipate growing our scale by integrating the Quipt name into local markets over time and are excited about our pipeline of acquisitions. We think we have the potential to have a very busy second half of the year on the acquisition front.”
