Dexcom Reports Record Preliminary, Unaudited Revenue for the Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2018 and Provides Initial 2019 Outlook
SAN DIEGO, CA - (BUSINESS WIRE-January 7, 2019) DexCom, Inc. (Nasdaq: DXCM), the leader in continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), today reported that it expects preliminary, unaudited revenue for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018 to exceed $331 million, an increase of at least 50% over the fourth quarter of 2017. For fiscal 2018, total preliminary, unaudited revenue is expected to exceed $1.025 billion, an increase of more than 42% over 2017.
We are thrilled with Dexcoms full-year performance in 2018, with growth exceeding our original expectations by a significant margin and driving us to a historic milestone of more than $1 billion in annual revenues. Our success in 2018 was driven by increasing awareness of the importance of CGM in managing diabetes, supported by the approval and launch of Dexcoms G6 CGM platform both in the U.S. and internationally, said Kevin Sayer, Dexcoms Chairman, President and CEO. Looking ahead to 2019, we are confident in our position to continue delivering strong results.
For 2019, Dexcom currently anticipates total revenue of approximately $1.175 billion to $1.225 billion, representing expected growth of approximately 15% to 20% over 2018. This growth outlook is driven by strong growth in sensor volumes, continued international expansion, shifting channel mix and overall market dynamics.
Dexcom will provide further details related to its 2019 financial expectations on the fourth quarter earnings call.
