Morgan Healthcare Conference the week of January 11th, 2021, including a presentation on Monday, January 11, 2021 at 2:50 p.m. (Eastern Time). Based on results through November 2020, the Company is now providing full year 2020 revenue guidance of approximately $1.86 billion and reaffirming its previous full-year 2020 Adjusted EBITDA guidance range of $250 to $260 million. Consistent with previous management statements, the Company projects that in 2021, it will re-establish the multi-year double-digit Adjusted growth trajectory and profit levels originally targeted based on a pre-COVID baseline.

The guidance for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 is based on results of the Company through November 2020 and is subject to quarter- and year-end adjustments in connection with the completion of customary financial closing procedures, including management’s review and finalization of the results for the full year 2020 and to accounting review procedures by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, which have not yet been performed. These customary closing procedures, along with December results, could cause actual results to differ materially from management’s guidance. You are cautioned not to rely on management’s guidance being achieved when making an investment decision in the Company’s securities.
