NEW YORK, Jan. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XpresSpa Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: XSPA), a travel health and wellness company, today reported preliminary revenue for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2021.

Doug Satzman, XpresSpa Group CEO, stated, “We are extremely pleased with our record revenue results and sincerely thank our entire team for our performance. For the fourth quarter, we generated our highest ever quarterly revenue of at least $27 million, while for the full year, we generated our highest ever annual revenue of at least $71 million.”

Mr. Satzman continued, “XpresCheck experienced extremely robust testing volumes throughout the peak holiday travel season despite staffing challenges related to the Omicron variant. As we believe pre-travel COVID testing will remain mandatory before boarding an airplane to many international destinations, we are looking to expand XpresCheck to some existing and new airports in 2022 in order to capitalize on the ongoing and growing need for this critical service.”

Mr. Satzman added, “In mid-December, we opened our first Treat location in JFK Terminal 4 which is off to an encouraging start. We will be following this up with Treat Phoenix Sky Harbor, which is now expected to open during the spring, while other additional locations are planned for later this year. We envision Treat becoming a leader in the emerging category of travel health and wellness by providing 24/7, on-demand access to healthcare through our app, content and retail through treat.com, and a new level of wellness services in airports.”

Business Update

XpresCheck® Wellness Centers

XpresCheck has entered into management services agreements (“MSAs”) with Professional Corporations (“PCs”) that in turn contract with physicians and other professional providers to offer healthcare services. Under the terms of the MSAs, which may be modified according to market conditions, XpresTest provides office space, equipment, supplies, non-licensed staff, and management services to support and facilitate the PC’s provision of COVID-19, including a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test and a rapid PCR test, and other medical diagnostic testing in return for a management fee. There are currently 14 operating XpresCheck locations in 12 airports.

During the fourth quarter of 2021, XpresCheck initiated a $2 million, eight-week pilot program with the CDC in collaboration with Concentric by Ginkgo. Under this program, XpresCheck conducted biosurveillance monitoring at three major U.S. airports (JFK International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport and San Francisco International Airport) aimed at identifying existing and new SARS-CoV-2 variants. With the emergence of the Omicron variant, this pilot transitioned into a program targeting travelers arriving from additional countries and expended to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Revenue recognition for this program is based on certain milestones specified in the contract and approximately 75% of the revenue was recorded during the fourth quarter of 2021.

XpresSpa® Services

By the end of the fourth quarter of 2021, there were 14 operating XpresSpa domestic locations. A majority of the domestic XpresSpa locations are operating approximately eight hours per day during the busiest hours (compared to up to 16 hours per day pre-pandemic) thereby improving labor productivity. XpresSpa also implemented a price increase in mid-October.

During the fourth quarter of 2021, we began testing new touchless massage services and selling additional retail products. We evaluate each airport on a month by month basis as well as review continued learnings as the portfolio is re-activated.

There are also six international locations operating during the fourth quarter of 2021, including three XpresSpa locations in Dubai International Airport in the United Arab Emirates and three XpresSpa locations in Schiphol Amsterdam Airport in the Netherlands.

Treat™: A New Travel Health and Wellness Brand

Treat provides access to integrated care services that can seamlessly fit into a health and wellness lifestyle. Empowering travelers to take a health-first approach to the journey ahead, Treat acts as a wellness concierge, providing medical care and wellness services to consumers as they return to travel.

Treat In-airport Wellness Centers offer services such as anxiety care, emergency prescriptions, rapid PCR testing, vitamin IV therapies, as well as private virtual wellness services including fitness, yoga and guided meditation sessions. Treat In-airport Wellness Centers include a highly curated assortment of premium health and wellness travel items in their onsite retail collection.

The first Treat In-Airport Wellness Center launched at JFK International Airport Terminal 4 on December 16, 2021 and we are encouraged by the early results. Our second location at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is expected to open in Spring 2022. We are also in negotiations for several additional locations, including some XpresSpa conversions, at major airports across the U.S. for 2022 and 2023.

The Treat website (www.treat.com) features original content, access to resources about global COVID-19 requirements, and curated e-commerce. The Treat mobile app provides access to on-demand virtual care to board-certified physicians, including chat care and video care. The app also has a “travel wallet” providing access to a person’s medical records, vaccinations and test results. Eventually, we expect to expand the app and benefits to include in-app premium wellness content including meditations and workouts as well a Smart Health Card online shopping and prescription discounts.

Over the long-term, we envision that digital channels will provide growth opportunities beyond the airport locations, which would be achieved through subscription-based services that offer care and tools supporting travel health and wellness. We also anticipate offering upstream content that can be monetized through affiliate revenue as well as curated ecommerce retail through www.treat.com.

Share Repurchase Program

During the fourth quarter of 2021, we continued to execute on our share repurchase program. Management will continue to exercise discretion in determining the conditions under which shares may be purchased from time to time, if at all.
