NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Harrow (Nasdaq: HROW), a leading U.S. eyecare pharmaceutical company, announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023. The company revealed record revenues of $26.1 million, up 18 percent over $22.1 million for the prior-year quarter and 28 percent over sequential quarter revenues of $20.3 million. Harrow also reported a loss of $6.6 million in the first quarter compared to a loss of $2.4 million for the same period last year.

“We are excited to kick off 2023 with a strong first quarter that demonstrates the continuing successful execution of our strategic plan aimed at elevating Harrow into a leading position among top-tier U.S. eyecare pharmaceutical companies,” said Mark L. Baum, CEO of Harrow. “We are pleased that our Harrow team delivered record revenues of $26.1 million, a 28 percent increase over the fourth quarter of 2022, but, even more important, we see the first quarter of 2023 marking the beginning of a new revenue paradigm for Harrow. 

“We believe our successful first quarter is indicative of 2023 being a catalyst-rich year for Harrow, including our recent launch of IHEEZO at ASCRS in San Diego. We are very excited about the growth that we are seeing from our innovative new products and formulations that are being added to our product portfolio.”

Harrow expects full-year revenue in the range of $135 million to $143 million.

“Going forward, we expect revenue growth from our branded pharmaceutical products to meaningfully outpace growth from our compounded pharmaceutical products, with revenue from branded products ultimately driving the lion’s share of our future profitability and top line growth,” said Baum. “Based on our results to date, we are reaffirming our 2023 guidance of $135 million to $143 million in net revenues and $44 million to $50 million in adjusted EBITDA.”
