WARSAW, Ind., Jan. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OrthoPediatrics Corp. (“OrthoPediatrics” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: KIDS), a company focused exclusively on advancing the field of pediatric orthopedics, today announced preliminary unaudited net revenue for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022, and provided 2023 financial guidance.
Preliminary unaudited fourth quarter 2022 net revenue is expected to be $31.0 million, representing growth of 25% compared to $24.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. Preliminary domestic fourth quarter net revenue growth is expected to be 15% compared to the prior year period and international net revenue growth is expected to be 67% compared to the prior year period.
Preliminary unaudited full year 2022 net revenue is expected to be $122.3 million, representing growth of 25% compared to $98.0 million in 2021. Preliminary full year domestic net revenue growth is expected to be 19% and international net revenue growth is expected to be 47%.
“Our fourth quarter net revenue growth reflects continued commercial and operational execution offset by the impact of surgery schedule disruptions experienced in children’s hospitals due to viral respiratory infections,” commented David Bailey, President & CEO of OrthoPediatrics. “While the pressure from the pronounced respiratory illness season impacted our short-term results, we believe OrthoPediatrics remains in its strongest strategic position of all time, supported by an expanding user base, robust product portfolio, recent acquisitions, and a growing international presence.”
2023 Financial Guidance
Management projects 2023 net revenue to be in the range of $146.0 million to $149.0 million, representing growth of 20% to 22% over 2022 preliminary unaudited net revenue.
The Company plans to release its fourth quarter and full year 2022 financial results and provide additional commentary on its financial outlook in March. The quarterly and annual preliminary net revenue estimates for 2022 included in this press release are prior to the completion of review and audit procedures by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm and are therefore subject to adjustment.
