Management Commentary

“The momentum across the business continues to be robust as evidenced by our first quarter financial and operating results, and I am pleased to say that we are seeing similar strong trends into our second quarter,” said CEO and Chairman Greg Crawford. “Over the last few years, we have applied financial resources and operating expertise to build an unparalleled scalable platform which is poised for tremendous growth. We have the ability to leverage this patient centric platform to make sizeable acquisitions in new and existing markets and integrate them with ease. Coupling this with our significant financial resources, we have never been more excited as to what we can accomplish as a company and have our eyes set on transforming into a national provider of respiratory home care in the United States. As seen in our financials, our recurring revenue grew to 75% of total revenue and we anticipate a further uptick with a full quarter of contribution from SleepWell. This strong recurring revenue platform provides us further stability and consistency as it relates to our growth outlook and is a direct result of the infrastructure we have developed. Our path forward is crystal clear, and with an extremely healthy balance sheet our focus for 2021 is to seek larger, more transformative acquisitions. Lastly, I’d like to thank the entire Protech team for their tireless efforts and stakeholders for all of their continued support.”

Chief Financial Officer Hardik Mehta added, “We are extremely pleased to have transitioned to reporting in U.S. dollars, representing an important step forward in our goal to simplify our reporting and capital markets presentation for investors. We are excited to see the sustained margin acceleration and strong recurring revenue growth that we experienced in the first quarter. Our Adjusted EBITDA margin remains strong as we continue to experience tailwinds across the Company. We also expect our results to further improve as our sleep business normalizes and exceeds historical levels as we move through 2021. On the acquisition front, we are looking forward to quickly scaling up in Florida on the heels of closing MME, and have a full pipeline of acquisition targets in current and new markets that we will continue to assess in the coming months.”
