“We are focused on rapidly scaling our user base, and are achieving revenue growth throughout all channels including subscriber signups, pharmacy orders, and service delivery,” said Shane Madden, CEO of Hydreight. “This traction has been largely organic, which demonstrates that we have found a legitimate problem in the market and have created the right solution to solve it.”

Hydreight’s on-demand home healthcare and wellness platform makes it possible for anyone to book health and wellness services from registered nurses and other licensed providers in the comfort of their own homes.

Providers on the platform are empowered to be their own bosses, make their own hours, and deliver services outside of traditional medical settings. They work independently with the oversight of a Hydreight medical director and have access to a digital pharmacy, as well as a full suite of HIPAA-compliant tools to manage their businesses.

“We have placed a particular emphasis on ensuring that service providers on the platform are successfully growing their businesses, and we have a variety of initiatives in the works in this area,” added Madden. “The old adage is correct: take care of your customers, and they will take care of you.”

Victory Square will be hosting a live Q&A investor webinar with Hydreight Technologies CEO Shane Madden on Friday, May 26 during which participants will have the opportunity to ask questions in a group format.

**Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This release contains references to non-GAAP financial measures Adjusted Revenue and Adjusted Gross Margin. The Company defines Adjusted Revenue as gross cash income before adjustment for the deferred portion of business partner contract revenue and gross receipts from Hydreight App service sales. The Company defines Adjusted Gross Margin as GAAP gross margin plus inventory impairment plus the deferred portion of business partner contract revenue. The Company believes that the measures provide information useful to its shareholders and investors in understanding the Company’s operating cash flow growth, user growth, and cash generating potential and may assist in the evaluation of the Company’s business relative to that of its peers more accurately than GAAP financial measures alone. This data is furnished to provide additional information and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP. Accordingly, it should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and is not necessarily indicative of other metrics presented in accordance with GAAP.
