Growth to Continue in Q4
WELL Health chairman and CEO Hamed Shahbazi said, “We had an outstanding quarter mainly as a result of the growing success of our practitioner enablement platform and strong financial performance from our recent acquisitions. In the third quarter we also achieved adjusted gross profit of C$50.0 million which was almost 10 times the adjusted gross profit as compared to the same period last year. Our adjusted gross margin percentage increased to over 50% for the first time, and we have now accomplished four consecutive quarters of positive Adjusted EBITDA, which has experienced significant growth throughout the year.”
WELL expects to continue growing in the fourth quarter through healthy organic growth in its two business lines, Omnichannel patient services, and Virtual services. The company expects to end the year with annualized revenue approaching C$450 million, and operating adjusted EBITDA of approximately C$100 million.
