On Wednesday, Canaccord Genuity maintained a Buy rating on Inari Medical Inc. shares (NASDAQ:NARI) but reduced the price target to $55 from the previous $75. The adjustment follows Inari Medical's announcement of its first-quarter results for 2024, which exceeded expectations.

The company reported quarterly revenue of $143.2 million, marking a 23.3% increase year over year. This performance surpassed both Canaccord Genuity and Street estimates.

Inari Medical also updated its full-year 2024 guidance, now anticipating revenue between $592.5 million and $602.5 million, reflecting a 20% to 22% year-over-year growth. This is an upward revision from the previously projected range of $580 million to $595 million.

Despite the strong start in the first quarter, the company's management has conservatively projected its revenue guidance for the remaining year, factoring in the easier comparisons for the second quarter of 2024.

The company's management highlighted its three primary growth drivers: Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) treatments, Emerging Therapies, and international expansion. They detailed plans for commercial expansion, deeper market penetration, and the anticipated release of strong clinical data later in the year. Moreover, Inari Medical is focusing on developing its product portfolio with new offerings such as VenaCor, Artix, and LimFlow, alongside plans for growth outside the United States.

Regarding the Corporate Integrity Agreement (CIA) with the Department of Justice (DOJ), Inari Medical's management stated that the company has not seen any commercial impact from the agreement and does not expect any in the future.

The company is continuing to cooperate with the DOJ on this matter. Canaccord Genuity reaffirms its confidence in Inari Medical's growth prospects and its Buy rating on the stock despite the lowered price target.
