Lexington, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 11, 2016 — Imprivata® (NYSE: IMPR), the healthcare IT security company, today announced that it expects fourth quarter 2015 revenue to exceed the upper end of its previously announced guidance range of $32-34 million.
“In the fourth quarter, strength in our healthcare business both in the US and internationally drove results above our guidance,” said Omar Hussain, President and CEO of Imprivata. “We were able to build backlog, and our new products had a strong quarter. While as we expected we saw continued softness in the small hospital and non-healthcare segments, we are pleased to report that Imprivata added a record number of healthcare customers in 2015, and now supports over 1,500 healthcare customers globally.”
The company will release its full fourth quarter 2015 results after the market close on February 16, 2016 and management will provide a complete discussion of the fourth quarter results as well as an update on our 2016 outlook on the Company’s quarterly earnings call on February 16, 2015.
The Company provided updated guidance in advance of the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference, where President and Chief Executive Officer Omar Hussain and Chief Financial Officer Jeff Kalowski will present at 4:00 p.m. PST on Wednesday, January 13, 2016. A live webcast of the presentation will be available online from the investor relations page of the Company's investor relations website at http://investor.imprivata.com.

The preliminary financial results presented in this release are based solely upon information available as of the date of this release, are not a comprehensive statement of our financial results or positions as of or for the fourth quarter of 2015, and have not been audited, reviewed, or compiled by our independent registered accounting firm.
