"We are pleased to report another strong quarter of positive business momentum highlighted by 201% revenue growth, positive net income and positive Adjusted EBITDA1," said Stan Vashovsky, CEO of DocGo. "We continue to see increasing demand for our high quality, highly affordable Mobile Health services as we continue to deliver exceptional patient care and value across medical mobility and mobile health to generate sustainable, long-term growth.  We are increasing our full year 2021 revenue outlook to $260 million as a result."

Preliminary Third Quarter Financial Highlights and Increased 2021 Full-Year Revenue Outlook

  • On a preliminary basis, total revenue was $81 million in the third quarter of 2021, representing all-time record quarterly revenue for the sixth consecutive quarter for DocGo, and a 201% increase from $26.9 million in the third quarter of 2020.
  • Results were aided by the inclusion of revenues from several large new and expanded Mobile Health contracts.
  • Mobile Health revenue increased to approximately $60.6 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $11.4 million in the prior-year period. Medical mobility revenue was approximately $20.4 million, up 32% from $15.5 million in Q3 of 2020.
  • DocGo's net income was $0.6 million in the third quarter of 2021, which represents a substantial improvement over the net loss of $2.7 million in the third quarter of last year. Adjusted EBITDA1 grew to approximately $3.5 million in the third quarter of 2021 even with significant investments made in regional expansion and personnel, versus an Adjusted EBITDA1 loss of $0.9 million in the prior-year period.
  • Excluding COVID-related testing from both periods, revenue in the third quarter of 2021 more than tripled year-over-year, when compared to the results of the third quarter of 2020, with ongoing positive momentum in the core business.
  • As a result of earlier investments in sustainable long-term opportunities and overall positive business trends expected for the balance of the year, DocGo is raising its outlook for full-year 2021 revenue to $260 million, compared to its prior increased outlook for 2021 revenue of at least $170 million. The company is also increasing its prior full-year 2021 Adjusted EBITDA1 guidance from $6 million, to $10 million, even while planning for continued investments in future growth.

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure.  See "Non-GAAP Measure" at the end of this release for a discussion of this measure, including certain limitations thereof, and a reconciliation to net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure.

Recent Business Highlights

  • Launched medical transport services in London to service NHS partners.
  • Launched Mobile Health services in Maryland and Michigan.
  • Partnered with NYC Health + Hospitals to launch one of the largest public flu testing programs in the U.S. using DocGo's Mobile Health units.
  • To meet the growing demand for services, hired 780 new employees in Q3 2021, bringing total hires for the year to 1,741, and total number of medical providers to over 3,500.
  • Announced plans to establish a National Sales Team and hire 20 top-performing industry sales executives to further accelerate business growth and continue building on the proven success of DocGo's Mobile Health model.

"Today's preliminary third quarter results and raised outlook for 2021 further validate the compelling opportunity DocGo represents for investors," commented Michael Burdiek, Chief Executive Officer of Motion. "There are very few businesses that successfully reach scale and experience ongoing triple digit growth, and DocGo is one of the rare few.  The disciplined investments that the company has made over the last year are really starting to pay dividends through sustainable, long-term opportunities as evidenced by the revised full year outlook. We look forward to supporting Stan and the entire DocGo team as we move through the process towards a near-term public listing for DocGo."

Non-GAAP Financial Measure
"GAAP" refers to financial information presented in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. This announcement includes Adjusted EBITDA, a measure calculated other than in accordance with GAAP. This non-GAAP financial measure is provided in addition to, and not as a substitute for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.  DocGo defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before investment income, interest expense, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, litigation provisions and merger-related expenses.  Internally, this non-GAAP measure is used by management for purposes of evaluating DocGo's core operating performance, establishing internal budgets, calculating return on investment for development programs and growth initiatives, comparing performance with internal forecasts, strategic planning, evaluating and valuing potential acquisition candidates, and benchmarking performance externally against competitors. DocGo believes this non-GAAP financial information provides additional insight into our financial performance and future prospects of the company's core business and have therefore chosen to provide this information to investors to help them evaluate our results of operations and enhance the ability to make period-to-period comparisons. Other companies, including companies in our industry, may not use Adjusted EBITDA or may calculate it differently than as presented below, limiting Its usefulness as a comparative measure. In evaluating these non-GAAP measures, you should be aware that in the future we will incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments made in the calculations of Adjusted EBITDA and our presentation of it herein should not be construed to mean that our future results will be unaffected by such adjustments.

DocGo does not provide a reconciliation of forward-looking Adjusted EBITDA guidance to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, because the impact and timing of certain of the adjustments cannot be determined without unreasonable efforts due to their inherent variability, complexity, and unpredictability. These items, which are necessary for a presentation of a reconciliation to net income, could have a potentially significant impact on DocGo's GAAP results.
