GoodRx soared in its debut trading Wednesday on the Nasdaq.
The company, a digital prescription price comparison and coupon provider, saw its stock recently traded at $48.45, up +46.81% from its initial public offering price of $33, which in turn was well above the $24 to $28 range set by the underwriters.
Inn the six months ended June 30, GoodRx’s net income totaled $54.7 million, up from $31.2 million a year earlier. Revenue of $256.7 million was higher than $173.2 million a year earlier.
Co-founders and CEOs Doug Hirsch and Trevor Bezdek wrote in the prospectus that “so far, we’ve saved Americans an estimated $20 billion on prescriptions and medical services. We have helped a lot of people save money on their care.” They further noted, “our research indicates that, of our total consumer base, approximately 18 million people got care they otherwise could not afford. We also work closely with physicians and pharmacists - America’s healthcare heroes - to provide research and tools that improve access to care every day,”.
“When patients have exhausted other options, our corporate philanthropy arm, GoodRxHelps, provides free prescriptions and medical services in partnership with clinics across America. We are proud of our focus on minority communities, who face disproportionately greater challenges in obtaining affordable care,” the CEOs added.
