GOLETA, Calif. – Inogen’s revenues were up 14.1% for the first quarter of 2019 compared to the same period last year, totaling $90.2 million. Sales revenues were $84.8 million, up 15.3%; and rental revenues were $5.4 million, down 1.5%. Total units sold were 50,400, an increase of 5,000 or 11%. President and CEO Scott Wilkinson said it was a “tough quarter” domestically, but he said the company believes there is still a large opportunity for portable oxygen concentrators worldwide. “There are patient access issues given the current reimbursement environment and the restructuring challenges that some providers are facing in converting their oxygen business to a non-delivery model,” he said. “As a result, we are focused on multiple initiatives to drive sales and marketing efficiencies and build a more predictable revenue stream over time.”
