HealthLynked Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2023 Results Highlighted by 70% Reduction in Net Loss for Q4

NAPLES, Fla., April 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via IBN – HealthLynked Corp. (OTCQB: HLYK), a leader in healthcare networking and technological innovation, announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2023. With strategic advancements and its focus on core healthcare technologies and networking capabilities, HealthLynked achieved a significant 70% reduction in net loss for the fourth quarter, highlighting a period of fiscal management and strategic positioning for future growth.

Full Year 2023 Financial Results

Strategic Focus and Technological Innovations Pave the Way for an Optimistic Outlook: HealthLynked reported a modest 2% revenue decrease to $5.72 million, attributed in part to the retirement of, and contracts ending for, certain key physicians and the onboarding phase of new physicians at several clinical sites. Despite these temporary staffing adjustments, HealthLynked’s strategic direction and the release of the new pay app version 3.2.0 quartering first quarter 2024 create a new opportunity for core revenue growth. The forthcoming integration of ARI, our AI-driven healthcare guide, into the newly released HealthLynked app represents a pivotal stride towards leveraging technology to enhance our healthcare network’s effectiveness.

Operational Efficiency through Key Enhancements: Optimization of operational expenses led to a 52% cut in operational losses, demonstrating HealthLynked’s commitment to financial stewardship and operational efficiency. Strategic restructuring resulted in a 19% reduction in operating expenses.  Exclusive of impairment charges, the operational loss declined by 35%. Our targeted efforts to refine operations and strategically invest in our healthcare network and technology capabilities have poised us for sustainable growth and a solid financial footing.

Solid Financial Health from Strategic Divestiture: The strategic sale of ACO Health Partners, alongside the gains realized from this initiative, contributed significantly to our financial restructuring, bringing in $3.76 million. This move underscores our focus on our core competencies in healthcare networking and technological innovation, significantly bolstering our liquidity and financial resilience.

Dramatic Net Loss Reduction: A significant decrease in net loss to $1.01 million in 2023 from $8.82 million in 2022 illustrates the positive impact of our strategic divestitures, operational efficiencies, and profit stabilization despite temporary staffing changes. The integration of cutting-edge technologies and our strategic focus creates a path forward of continued growth and operational improvement.

Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenue Commitment to Core Technologies Following Staffing Transition: Revenue declined to $0.93 million in Q4 2023, primarily as a result of temporary physician staffing adjustments along with associated physician pay. This new baseline in cost prepares HLYK for improved profitability in the second half of 2024 with an expected operating profit by the end of the fiscal year. The introduction of our new pay app version 3.2.0 is indicative of our focus on achieving profitability and technological leadership in the healthcare sector by the end of 2024.

Strategic Initiatives Lead to Reduced Operating Loss: A 73% reduction in operating loss to $1.11 million in Q4 2023, demonstrating our resilience and strategic focus during a period of staffing transition. Exclusive of a $2.75 million Q4 2022 impairment charge, the operating loss decline was 21%. This underscores our commitment to operational efficiency and financial health.

Substantial Improvement to Net Loss Reflects Strategic Strength: A 70% reduction in net loss to $1.29 million in Q4 2023, underscores the effectiveness of our strategic initiatives, showcasing our adaptability and commitment to navigating towards long-term financial sustainability and growth.
