2020 Guidance

Given the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the company’s normal business patterns, Masimo has not issued any guidance for 2020.

In Conclusion

Masimo exited the second quarter on a strong note. The company continues to gain from its key Product segment, which witnessed solid growth in the quarter under review. The company’s non-invasive technology shipments also surged in the quarter. In fact, management foresees increased shipments for the quarters ahead.The recent launch of the Masimo SafetyNet, designed to help fight the coronavirus pandemic, buoys optimism. The outbreak has boosted demand for the company’s products among direct and OEM customers.

On the flip side, contraction of both margins is a concern. Masimo’s Royalty and Other segment saw no contribution during the quarter. Further, the company faces fierce competition from MedTech bigwigs.
