Teladoc (TDOC) Tops Q2 EPS by 1c; Issues Guidance Light of Views

August 3, 2016 4:30 PM EDT

Teladoc (NYSE: TDOC) reported Q2 EPS of ($0.38), $0.01 better than the analyst estimate of ($0.39). Revenue for the quarter came in at $26.5 million versus the consensus estimate of $28.2 million.

“During the second quarter, we saw continued momentum across numerous dimensions of our business,” Jason Gorevic, chief executive officer of Teladoc, commented. “Visits exceeded our expectations, and for the 14th consecutive quarter, visit growth outpaced our membership growth, reinforcing our increasing utilization trends. Additionally, we are making progress toward our goal of EBITDA breakeven by the end of 2017, as we saw a $1.4 million sequential reduction in our second-quarter loss.”

Mr. Gorevic continued, “In spite of these positive trends in our business, we did not achieve our revenue expectations for the second quarter. A significant increase in the cost of advertising in our direct-to-consumer segment led to fewer ads placed, and therefore less revenue. In addition, two large, new clients that were forecasted to be implemented in the second half of 2016 delayed their launch dates to the start of 2017. Thus, we have adjusted our outlook for the remainder of the year.”
