Teladoc Health’s CEO, Jason Gorevic said, “After a transformational year, Teladoc Health continues to show strong momentum by delivering record results across the business. Consumers are embracing our whole-person virtual care offerings, engaging with multiple products and coming to us for more of their health needs.”

“As our integration accelerates, we are leading the way in whole-person care, unlocking the full spectrum of healthcare in one unified and personalized consumer experience,” Gorevic added.

Access fees of $388.2 million rose 183% year-on-year and comprised around 85.5% of the company’s total revenues of $453.7 million. The company’s paid memberships in the United States hit 51.5 million in 1Q, a rise of 20% year-on-year.

Following the earnings, Oppenheimer analyst Michael Wiederhorn lowered the price target from $270 to $250 but reiterated a Buy on the stock. Wiederhorn said in a note to investors, “The results reflect the first full quarter with Livongo, along with 69% organic growth…”

“Due to improved outlook, we raise our 2021/2022 adj. EBITDA estimates to $273M/$424M from $267M/$418M, but due to the quarter/below-the-line items, we lower our GAAP 2021/2022E EPS estimates to ($2.42)/($0.82) from ($0.29)/$0.45…” Wiederhorn added.

Shares have crashed approximately 32% in the past three months.
