WELL Health’s Chairman and CEO Hamed Shahbazi said, “We are very pleased with our results from Q1-2021, in which quarterly revenue increased by 150% compared to the same period last year and we surpassed C$100 million annualized revenue run-rate. During Q1 we also announced the acquisition of CRH and subsequently closed the transaction in Q2, which puts us on track for an annualized revenue run-rate approaching $300 million. CRH accelerates our revenue growth and significantly boosts our free cash flow, which will be used to make additional cash flow generating acquisitions. I am also pleased to report that CRH, now operating as a stand-alone WELL business unit, is on track to meet its business plan goals to generate over US$150M in revenues and over US$40M in free cash flow before leverage and tax costs.” (See WELL Health Technologies Corp stock analysis on TipRanks.)
