SECOND QUARTER 2022 MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENTS

Among the achievements during the second quarter of 2022 were:

  1. Highest quarterly revenues since inception.

  2. Consecutive quarterly profitability since the fourth quarter of 2017.

  3. Highest cash and cash equivalents balance since inception.

2022 Financial Guidance Update

In 2022, Semler Scientific expects continued profitability and generation of cash from operating activities, as well as increased spending to support anticipated growth in its business.

For the second half of 2022, Semler Scientific believes that:

  • Revenue will range from $29.2 million to $31.2 million representing a growth rate of 14% to 21% compared to the second half of 2021

  • Operating expenses will range from $22.8 million to $24.3 million

For the year ended December 31, 2022, Semler Scientific believes that:

  • Annual revenue will range from $58.0 million to $60.0 million, representing a growth rate of 9% to 14%

  • Operating expenses will range from $42.5 million to $44.0 million. The guidance for operating expenses indicates less spending than previously anticipated due to greater efficiencies achieved in Semler Sceintific's sales organization during the first half of 2022.

OTHER NOTABLE EVENTS

Mellitus Health and Insulin Insights™

In the second quarter of 2022, Semler Scientific acquired $179,000 principal amount of outstanding convertible notes of Mellitus Health Inc., and loaned $1.0 million to Mellitus through the purchase of a senior secured promissory note.

Initial installations and new sales for Insulin Insights™ continue to progress. Semler Scientific still anticipates minimal revenue from these customers during 2022.

QuantaFlo® Product Extension

Semler Scientific is currently introducing the product extension of QuantaFlo® for use as an aid in diagnosing another cardiovascular disease to its existing client base using its current sales team. The product extension uses Semler Scientific's installed equipment with a software update. Semler Scientific does not expect significant revenue from the extension in 2022.

Share Buyback Authorization

Semler Scientific has $17 million remaining in the board authorized stock repurchase program. The timing and amount of any transactions will be subject to the discretion of Semler Scientific based upon market conditions and other opportunities that it may have for the use or investment of cash balances.
