WARSAW, Indiana, Oct. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OrthoPediatrics Corp. (“OrthoPediatrics” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: KIDS), a company focused exclusively on advancing the field of pediatric orthopedics, today announced preliminary revenue for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021 and provided a related business update.
Preliminary unaudited third quarter 2021 revenue is expected to be approximately $25.1 million, up 13% when compared to revenue of $22.2 million in the third quarter 2020. The third quarter 2021 revenue was impacted by increased COVID-19 Delta cases as well as respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) cases within the children’s hospitals combined with hospital staff shortages. Despite this impact, the Company reiterates its 2021 total revenue guidance range of $97 to $101 million. The preliminary quarterly revenue estimate for 2021 included in this press release is prior to the completion of review and audit procedures by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm and therefore subject to adjustments.
