What happened 

Shares of Hims & Hers Health (HIMS -4.38%) popped 19% on Tuesday after the personalized health and wellness company issued an upbeat financial forecast. 

So what 

Hims & Hers Health added more than 170,000 net new subscriptions in the third quarter, marking an all-time high and its third consecutive quarter of over 100,000 customer additions. The company ended September with a total of 991,000 subscriptions, representing year-over-year growth of 80%.

Hims & Hers Health's revenue, in turn, soared 95% to $144.8 million.

"Our ability to create a trusted brand, build best-in-class capabilities and deliver a seamless experience to consumers is enabling us to drive robust and consistent growth, while also investing in the business," co-founder and CEO Andrew Dudum said in a press release.

Moreover, Hims & Hers Health's gross margin improved to 79% from 74% in the third quarter of 2021. In turn, its adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) loss narrowed to $6.1 million from $9.8 million in the year-ago period.
