The Medadvisor share price is soaring higher this week as the company announced its quarterly report. We take a closer look.
The post Why the Medadvisor (ASX:MDR) share price is up 11% this week appeared first on The Motley Fool Australia. –
Medadvisor Ltd (ASX: MDR) shares are performing strongly this week after the company released its quarterly report yesterday. The Medadvisor share price jumped 19.12% to 40.5 cents as the update for the quarter ending 31 December 2020 hit the ASX on Thursday.
However, the small-cap medical management platform’s share price has since pulled back to 40 cents at the time of writing.
What’s driving the Medadvisor share price?
The Medadvisor share price has been on the move after the company announced record operating revenue. Full year revenue for the company was $56.1 million, up 24% on the prior corresponding period. However, stealing the headlines was the company’s half year revenue of $34.3 million. This equates to a rise of 79% over the prior half.
In terms of operating cash flow Medadvisor reported cash receipts of $10.7 million for the quarter. These results were largely driven by strong performance in the company’s US subsidiary Adheris, which it acquired in November 2020. As such, Medadvisor closed the quarter with $21.2 million in cash.
Furthermore, Medadvisor expects demand for vaccination delivery via retail pharmacies to grow, which will accelerate growth in the company’s US health services. Medadvisor’s vaccine program product was its highest revenue generator in 2020.
Medadvisor CEO and Managing Director Robert Read welcomed the news saying:
This quarter validates the strong financial performance of Adheris and the opportunities that are available from MedAdvisor ownership. As a result, our revenues are up 188% year-on-year and approximately 80% of our revenue is now generated in the US. We are now working with our global customers at scale across multiple regions.
