NEW YORK, Jan. 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LifeMD, Inc. (Nasdaq: LFMD), a leading provider of virtual primary care, today provided 2024 financial guidance highlighted by significant expected growth in revenue and adjusted EBITDA driven by its GLP-1 weight management business, continued growth and profitability in its lifestyle healthcare businesses led by RexMD, strong performance in its WorkSimpli subsidiary, and the launch of new offerings.

“LifeMD entered 2024 with tremendous business momentum. We expect to build significantly upon the performance we achieved during 2023 across all our businesses including our weight management business, RexMD, and our non-core subsidiary, WorkSimpli. We expect strong growth in our weight management business in 2024 driven by an increase in the availability of GLP-1 medications, potential reductions in the price of GLP-1 medications and/or expansion of payor coverage, and LifeMD's launch of private insurance based programs. Additionally, we plan to dramatically expand the telehealth products and services offered under our RexMD brand, which we anticipate will increase the lifetime value of existing patients and attract new ones to RexMD. We are highly optimistic about our strategic alliance with Medifast, and expect that this and other new offerings will be material contributors to our results in the years to come with the potential to drive upside to our 2024 guidance,” said Justin Schreiber, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of LifeMD.

“Our 2024 financial guidance reflects the continued strength of our current offerings, led by our weight management business and RexMD. We expect 2024’s topline growth rate to be above our target of 30% while generating significant improvements in adjusted EBITDA and GAAP earnings along with steadily expanding margins, which we expect to accelerate in the second half of the year. Our balance sheet is the strongest it’s ever been with cash at year-end 2023 expected to exceed $30 million and increasing free cash flow. We remain laser-focused on leveraging the strength of our leading telehealth platform, our product and service offerings, and our balance sheet to generate value for our shareholders in 2024 and beyond,” commented Marc Benathen, Chief Financial Officer of LifeMD.
