OptimizeRx Provides Business Update and Sets First Quarter 2024 Conference Call for May 14, 2024 at 4:30 p.m. ET

April 26, 2024 at 7:30 AM EDT

1Q24 revenue expected to grow over 40% year-over-year and come in between $18.5 - $19.2 million

First quarter revenue and adjusted EBITDA to come in ahead of consensus

DAAP adoption and cross selling activities are tracking ahead of internal expectations

WALTHAM, Mass., April 26, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OptimizeRx Corp. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: OPRX), the leading provider of healthcare technology solutions helping life sciences companies reach and engage healthcare professional (HCPs) and patients, is providing a business update for 2024 and is preannouncing preliminary, unaudited results for select financials for the first quarter of 2024.

For the first quarter, the Company expects revenue to increase over 40% year-over-year and come in between $18.5 million and $19.2 million with a GAAP net loss and Adjusted EBITDA loss between $(8.2) - $(7.0) million and $(1.0) - $(0.7) million, respectively (see definition of this non-GAAP measure and reconciliation to GAAP, below). The year-over-year revenue increase was primarily driven by strong organic growth due to our Dynamic Audience Activation Platform (DAAP) as well as from our October 2023 acquisition of Medicx Health.

Steve Silvestro, OptimizeRx President commented, “The momentum from the fourth quarter has carried into the first quarter of 2024 with the signing of 9 new DAAP deals. Current industry trends favor our approach with pharma looking to partner with scalable platforms that have agile precision-marketing capabilities which at its core is what our AI enabled platform delivers.”

“Our commercial integration strategy between OptimizeRx and Medicx is also progressing ahead of our expectations, with numerous new cross-sell opportunities in late-stage negotiations. The integration of the two businesses is ahead of schedule and we are optimistic about our performance. With the addition of Medicx, we stand out as the only scalable platform with both HCP and direct-to-consumer reach. This unique positioning enhances our ability to cross-sell and upsell, unlocking significant value. We estimate the potential opportunity with existing brands alone to be nearly $2.8 billion, with even greater potential for brands we don’t yet support. This favorable environment strengthens our confidence in meeting or exceeding our financial targets.”

Preliminary and Unaudited Financial Results

The preliminary and unaudited financial results are subject to completion of the Company’s financial quarterly closing procedures. The Company’s independent registered public accounting firm has not conducted an audit or review of, and does not express an opinion or any other form of assurance with respect to, the preliminary and unaudited revenue results. It is possible that the Company or its independent registered public accounting firm may identify items that require the Company to make adjustments to the preliminary estimates of revenue and/or Adjusted EBITDA set forth in this press release.

Definition and Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release includes a presentation of Adjusted EBITDA which is a non-GAAP financial measure.

The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as GAAP net income (loss) with an adjustment to add back depreciation, amortization, interest, stock-based compensation, acquisition expenses, severance expense, income or loss related to the fair value of contingent consideration, gain or loss from the disposal of a business, asset impairment charges, other income (loss), and income taxes. The Company has provided this non-GAAP financial measure to aid investors in better understanding its performance. Management believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provide additional insight into the operations of the Company.

Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a Company’s non-cash operating expenses, management believes that providing this non-GAAP financial measure that exclude non-cash expenses allows for meaningful comparisons between the Company’s business operating results and those of other companies, as well as provides an important tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating the Company’s business operating results over different periods of time.

The Company’s Adjusted EBITDA measure may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the Company’s industry, as other companies in the industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently. The Company’s Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered an alternative to operating income or as an indication of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. The Company does not consider this non-GAAP measure to be a substitute for or superior to the information provided by its GAAP financial results.
