Goodbody Health Inc publishes half year financial results
Goodbody Health Inc. is pleased to announce its half year 2022 unaudited Interim Financial Statements for the six months to 30 June 2022. The revenue at £7.40m was £2.55m higher than the comparative period in 2021.
As anticipated, the quarter was lower than Q1 due to the expected decline in COVID testing. Non-Covid testing continues to be rolled out to improve revenue by the end of 2022.
The Company continues to deliver PCR testing and lateral flow tests based on travel requirements. Alternative testing is a lifestyle choice which is growing but will obviously lag regulated testing.
As at today, we have 235 clinics, with over 70% offering blood and other diagnostic testing services. The Company continues to roll out its strategy of becoming the leading aggregator of innovative technology and innovative tests, including blood and genome, while identifying additional products to enable consumers to take more control of their health and wellbeing.
