“We are extremely proud of the robust results we experienced in our fiscal second quarter which showed accelerating momentum across our heavily weighted respiratory product mix as the quarter progressed. Looking to the beginning of the fiscal third quarter, we are pleased to report we had the highest level of CPAP inventory since the recall began and have seen a positive inventory trend continue in real time,” said CEO and Chairman Greg Crawford. “Moreover, demand remains very strong for at home respiratory care which will continue to foster consistent financial performance. This strong demand coupled with an extremely bullish regulatory environment, provides us the ability to drive our organic and inorganic initiatives over the near term, and we are working diligently to progress on our plan of becoming a leader in clinical respiratory care throughout the United States. On the acquisition front, our pipeline remains very strong with many strategic opportunities ranging in size, and we look forward to progressing on attractive targets to leverage the unparalleled scalable platform we have created. Our strategy is allowing us to grow market share in new and existing markets and we are also excited to accelerate the hiring of experienced sales professionals as we exit the pandemic environment, which we expect to be a drive of future organic growth. We are extremely encouraged about the growth path we are on, carving out a special segment of the homecare industry and we are well positioned to seize the growth opportunity ahead of us.”
Chief Financial Officer Hardik Mehta added, “Our record fiscal second quarter results demonstrate our ability to successfully navigate a challenging operating environment, with revenue reaching $33.6 million, experiencing improving organic growth over fiscal Q1 2022, strong operating cash flow and seeing our Adjusted EBITDA margin accelerate to 21%. The strong performance was driven through elevated demand for oxygen, ventilation therapy and our other supplies business, leading to larger volumes, and continuing to support the business with lower operating costs. We are also very pleased with the integration process of our recent acquisitions, as we continue to drive meaningful cost and revenue synergies. Integration is the key to our ongoing financial and operating success as it positions us to continue working towards potential future strategic acquisitions. We continue to add attractive targets to our already deep acquisition pipeline that fit our stringent criteria including potential expansionary opportunities into synergistic verticals of service that would enhance our end-to-end product and service offering. Our goal is to be very active over the near term and look forward to updating investors on our progress.”
