BURLINGTON, Mass. & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Butterfly Network, Inc. (NYSE: BFLY), a digital health company transforming care through the power of portable, semiconductor-based ultrasound technology and intuitive software, provided a business update today at the 42nd Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference. A webcast replay of the conference presentation can be viewed here, and will be available until February 10th, 2024. The presentation slide deck with animated videos can be accessed here.
During the presentation, Joseph DeVivo, Butterfly Network’s President, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman shared, “The team is lean, the team is motivated, the team is focused, the team has energy now at all phases in our business. That has resulted in us expecting to exceed our 2023 guidance provided.” The company’s previously issued guidance for the full year 2023 was revenue of at least $64 million, and an improved adjusted EBITDA loss of $75 – 70 million.
Earlier this week, Butterfly announced that the FDA granted clearance of its next-generation handheld point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) system, Butterfly iQ3. During the presentation, DeVivo also demonstrated the new device’s image quality, and introduced one of its novel, digital-powered imaging modes, iQ Slice, which will be the world’s first automated, sequential image capture mode on a handheld ultrasound.
DeVivo continued, “Four days ago, we announced that we received FDA clearance for our third-generation device, Butterfly iQ3. The power in this device is equivalent to 20,000 4K movies running simultaneously. It allows us to not only get tremendous imaging, but also do calculations and develop new tools, like iQ Slice, that transform how ultrasound is captured.”
The company expects to launch Butterfly iQ3 this quarter (Q1 2024). To stay up to date with the latest updates, subscribe here.
