January 9, 2023

MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nuwellis, Inc. (Nasdaq: NUWE) (“Nuwellis” or the “Company”), a medical technology company focused on transforming the lives of people with fluid overload, today announced preliminary unaudited results for fourth quarter and full year 2022.

Preliminary unaudited revenue for the fourth quarter and full year 2022 is anticipated to be approximately $2.3 million and $8.5 million, respectively, representing an increase of 42% and 8% over the same periods last year. The fourth quarter growth rate reflects benefits from the Company’s commercial team expansion and focused sales strategy, as well as continued market traction in line with the Company’s penetration of market segments beyond heart failure patients. The fourth quarter revenue by segment was led by Pediatrics, followed by Heart Failure and Critical Care, which increased approximately 92%, 47%, and 24% over the same period last year, respectively.

“Preliminary 2022 revenue growth of approximately 42% for the fourth quarter and 8% for the full year demonstrates continued meaningful progress on the execution of our key strategic initiatives, as the expansion of our field sales team and clinical education specialists, bolstered by our market penetration initiatives and growing body of clinical evidence, drove strong sales momentum in the fourth quarter. We are committed to making the Aquadex SmartFlow® system the standard of care for patients with fluid overload who are not responsive to diuretics, driving strong growth in 2023 and beyond,” said Nestor Jaramillo, President and CEO of Nuwellis.
