New Frontier Health Corporation (NYSE: NFH) reported Q3 EPS of ($0.07). Revenue for the quarter came in at $92.28 thousand.

“We are pleased to see strong sequential revenue growth in the third quarter,” said Mr. Antony Leung, Chairman of NFH. “Despite restrictions related to COVID-19, our business continued to recover as our volumes for outpatient visits and inpatient admissions continued to grow from last quarter, mainly as a result of increased demand from the Chinese patient population. Under the leadership of the new combined management team, we are pleased to report significant improvement in Adjusted EBITDA profitability. Over the last several months, we have seen rapid growth in our Chinese patient base. At the same time, as domestic travel restrictions continue to ease and international borders open on a controlled basis, we expect foreign patient volumes to improve as well. In the event there is another wave of the COVID-19 outbreak during the winter, we believe that NFH is well prepared with strict internal controls to protect patients and staff. As we continue to expand our capabilities to withstand future outbreaks, we remain confident in our Company and expect to be able to continue to execute our operational and strategic plans to provide sustainable growth for our shareholders.”

Ms. Roberta Lipson, Chief Executive Officer of NFH and founder of UFH, commented, “We are optimistic about our ongoing recovery trend in the third quarter as demonstrated by the increase in both outpatient and inpatient numbers from the prior quarter. We are also pleased with several important developments in recent months. Our recent collaboration with Shandong University Qilu Hospital allows us to enhance our service offerings in the Qingdao United Family Hospital (“QDU”), providing patients with a deeper bench of medical specialty talent and options of faster access and more personalized care at United Family for traditional public hospital patients. Also, our hospital in Guangzhou reported positive Adjusted EBITDA for the first time in May after only 21 months of operation and is expected to contribute regularly to our Adjusted EBITDA performance moving forward. Additionally, in August, our Shanghai United Family Hospital (“PXU”) performed its first percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedure in its state-of-the-art hybrid operating room, demonstrating the leading techniques of our PXU clinical team. We continue to add new talent to our medical team to provide more in-depth clinical guidance and enhanced services to our patients as demonstrated by the increase in our high acuity procedures.”

Ms. Lipson continued, “Looking ahead, we remain focused on working closely with multi-national corporations, state-owned enterprises, schools and embassies to minimize COVID risk and meet society’s COVID-19 testing needs while continuing to expand our service capabilities. We remain committed to optimizing our business performance and delivering long-term value to our shareholders.”
