1st Quarter 2015 HIGHLIGHTS

The first quarter of 2015 for Semler resulted in continued revenue growth. Other highlights included:

  • The receipt of 510(k) marketing clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its next generation product for testing for vascular disease, which will be launched later this year. Semler believes that customers will be attracted to enhanced performance features and that the newly-cleared labeling will facilitate an expanded marketing adoption.
  • The launch of WellChec™, Semler's new suite of diagnostic tests performed by sub-contracted personnel, which added revenue to the first quarter results. Semler has developed a funnel of interest in this service offering among insurance plans and providers, as potential customers.

"We have experienced more than three years of sequential quarterly growth with our recurring revenue model, as we add new revenue layers onto sales made previously," said Dr. Murphy-Chutorian. "In addition to new clients, many of our current customers are ordering more product from us as they experience the economic and clinical benefits of our products and services, which we believe bodes well for continued revenue growth." He added, "Our sales team can be leveraged more effectively now that they have the WellChec™ platform to sell as a complementary service to our proprietary vascular testing product, employing greater coverage in the risk- assessment marketplace."
