SOUTH ORANGE, NJ – (NewMediaWire) – January 11, 2022 – Nephros, Inc. (Nasdaq: NEPH), a leading water technology company providing filtration and pathogen detection solutions to the medical and commercial markets, today announced preliminary results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021.
Net revenue for 2021 is expected to be $10.4 million, the highest in the company’s history and a 21% increase over 2020. Net revenue for the quarter ended December 31, 2021 is expected to be $2.8 million, an 18% increase over the quarter ended December 31, 2020.
“We are entering 2022 from our strongest position ever,” said Andy Astor, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our revenue in fiscal 2021 was the best in the company’s history, slightly exceeding our pre-pandemic revenue. We anticipate significant growth in all of our business segments and will issue a letter to stockholders later this week with additional detail on our expectations for 2022.”
Mr. Astor continued, “We are also pleased to reinstate our practice of providing revenue guidance, as we promised to do. We anticipate 2022 revenue to be in the range of $13.0 million to $13.5 million, representing revenue growth of 25–30% over 2021.
