    • 2% decrease compared to full year 2019

Operational Highlights

  • Zio XT received recommendation for adoption from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in the U.K. following success in a new digital health tech pilot
  • 3-year mSToPS study results determined that active screening for atrial fibrillation (AF) was associated with a significant improvement in clinical outcomes and safety
  • Publication of SCREEN-AF six-month clinical trial results in JAMA Cardiology highlighted that the use of Zio XT allowed physicians to diagnose arrhythmias more quickly and efficiently than traditional technologies, noting a tenfold increase in the detection of AF

“The iRhythm team finished the year strong, continuing to deliver on priorities of increased market penetration with our Zio platform, increased operating leverage through continued productivity and automation improvements, and expanding the addressable market into new indications and geographies. Once again, fourth quarter results were driven by further penetration of Zio XT in both existing and new accounts, continued ramp of Zio AT and continued utilization of our Home Enrollment service in telemedicine settings,” said Mike Coyle, CEO.

“Looking forward, we plan to make additional investments across our technology stack and expect continued strong volume growth in 2021. With less than 20% penetration in our core market, we expect to see continued strong growth from Zio XT in new and existing accounts and proportionately greater growth from Zio AT and from the U.K. Demand for our Zio service remains strong and our physician customers are expanding their utilization of the service, driving Zio as the new standard of care in ambulatory cardiac monitoring,” concluded Coyle.

Fourth Quarter Financial Results
Revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2020 increased 33.3% to $78.8 million, from $59.1 million during the same period in 2019. The increase was primarily driven by Zio XT volume and continued Zio AT expansion.

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $58.3 million, up from $45.2 million during the same period in 2019, while gross margins were 74.0%, down from 76.5% during the same period in 2019. The decrease in gross margin was due to costs related to Home Enrollment, higher shipping costs to mitigate USPS delays, and testing and overtime costs related to COVID.

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2020 were $67.9 million, compared to $62.9 million for the same period in 2019 and $58.5 million in Q3 2020. The sequential increase in operating expenses was due to costs related to Verily milestones of $4 million, restoration of COVID compensation reductions of $1.5 million, restoration of bad debt expense to normal levels resulting in an increase of $2 million and hiring and restoration of programs resulting in an increase of approximately $3 million, offset by reductions in stock compensation.

Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $9.7 million, or a loss of $0.33 per share, compared with net loss of $17.3 million, or a loss of $0.65 per share, for the same period in 2019.

Full Year 2020 Financial Results
Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020 increased 23.6% to $265.2 million, from $214.6 million in 2019. The increase in revenue was primarily due to higher Zio XT volume and the continued Zio AT expansion.

Gross profit for the year was $194.9 million, up from $162.1 million in 2019, while gross margins were 73.5%, down from 75.5% in 2019.

Operating expenses inclusive of Verily development for the year were $238.6 million, an increase of 10% compared to 2019. The increase in operating expenses was driven primarily by increases in stock-based compensation, and headcount offset by reductions to travel expenses.

Net loss for 2020 was $43.8 million, or a loss of $1.58 per share, compared with net loss of $54.6 million, or a loss of $2.16 per share in 2019.

Cash, cash equivalents, short-term investments and long-term investments were $335.2 million as of December 31, 2020.

Guidance
Due to continuing uncertainties in reimbursement, the company is unable to provide revenue or margin guidance, and unable to provide full year OPEX guidance.

For the first quarter of 2021, the company expects volume growth of 5% over the fourth quarter of 2020 and operating expenses to range from $77 million to $79 million.

For the full year, stock-based compensation is expected to increase by $20 million roughly evenly throughout the year due to the CEO transition and retention of key executives during the transition.
