Nuwellis (Nasdaq:NUWE) shares ticked up today on first-quarter results that topped the consensus forecast.
The Minneapolis-based fluid overload treatment developer — formerly known as CHF Solutions — posted losses of $4.5 million, or 42¢ per share, on sales of more than $1.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, for a bottom-line from losses of more than $5.2 million this time last year on sales growth of 0.4%.
Nuwellis’ losses per share of 42¢ came in 4¢ ahead of projections on Wall Street, where analysts were looking for sales of just shy of $1.8 million.
“I am very pleased with the resilient performance in the quarter,” Nuwellis CEO Nestor Jaramillo said in a news release. “Going forward, we expect to continue benefiting from the successful execution of our strategy and rollout of our new sales management system.”
Nuwellis did not provide 2022 guidance.
