  • Product revenue of $1.3 million, an increase of 6%

"2024 is off to a good start as we drove solid 13 percent top-line growth and believe our results highlight the broad-based growth and strong pet parent demand for our service and product offerings," said Kimball Carr, Chairman, President & Chief Executive Officer of Inspire. "In addition to record quarterly revenue, we achieved a positive same store revenue comp of 3%. We saw improvements via our focus on profitability which resulted in enhanced flow through and at clinic level. We've made important strategic decisions to help us increase operating efficiencies and focus our spending on the areas of our business where we are seeing the most favorable returns. Our team is committed to delivering operating discipline and high-quality execution and remains optimistic about our opportunities to increase growth and efficiencies across our business. Our field leaders have collaborated with our hospital teams to build more efficient team schedules which have resulted in high productivity per labor hour and a reduction in excess labor cost. Together with measures we are exploring to bolster our balance sheet, we continue to work to position 2024 as a pivotal year as we strive to achieve sustainable and profitable operations."

Carr added, "We are excited to see the business continue to evolve, and we remain focused on integrating and executing our newly acquired animal hospitals to provide more value to our customers. As we move through 2024,we remain confident in the sustainable, underlying demand for animal health, based on the strength of the human-animal bond and people's willingness to spend on pet health. Furthermore, we are excited about the strategic opportunities ahead and our role in continuing to drive innovation across the pet health category. The pet care industry continues to grow, and we believe we have opportunities to take advantage of that growth and drive higher returns to our shareholders."

First Quarter 2024 Operating Results

Total revenue was $4.8 million for the three months of 2024, an increase of 13% compared to total revenue of $4.3 million in the first three months of 2023, driven by an increase in sales in both Service and Product revenue. Service revenue for the three months of 2024 increased 15% to $3.5 million compared to the first three months of 2023, primarily driven by organic growth in existing clinic and animal hospital services and one new animal hospital acquired in the first quarter of 2023. Product revenue of $1.3 million increased 6% compared to the first three months of 2023 driven primarily by the acquisition of an animal hospital during the fourth quarter of 2023.

General and administrative expenses were $2.9 million for the first three months of 2024 compared to $1.8 million in the prior year period. Approximately $900k of the increased G&A is due to non-cash expenses the Company incurred related to stock/warrants issued for services in lieu of cash.

Net loss was $3.4 million for the first three months of 2024 compared to a net loss of $1.5 million for the prior year period. The increase in net loss was attributable to the operating expenses associated with the Company's animal hospitals and clinics, the cost of its public offering completed in the first quarter of 2024, and other third-party consulting arrangements entered into to increase investor communications, customer outreach and improve operations.

Balance Sheet

As of March 31, 2024, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $69,000.
