New startup takes aim at erectile dysfunction, and they’ll even mail your Viagra in a sleek little box

TwitterFacebook

Move over, cheesy Cialis bathtubs. There’s a sleek new startup targeting men with erectile dysfunction.

A first of its kind, Roman is an app that will screen you for ED, let you talk one-on-one with doctors, and even get prescriptions delivered to your door — all without ever leaving your house. The service, whose wares are packaged in dignified red and black branding, is aiming to take the shame out of the condition for a new generation. 

While an app that dispenses Viagra sounds like something out of an episode of Silicon Valley, in a refreshing turn of events, Roman is not being pitched as a cynical ploy to disrupt your dick. Instead, it’s a personal mission of the company’s CEO, Zachariah Reitano, an earnest software developer who has struggled with erectile dysfunction since he was a teenager.  Read more…

  • Under Armour beat on earnings, but missed on revenue.
  • The company lowered its earnings and sales forecast for the rest of the year.

 

Under Armour‘s stock is down about 6% after the company posted mixed third-quarter results and lowered its sales and earnings outlook for the rest of the year. 

The athletic-apparel company earned an adjusted $0.22 per share as revenue fell 5% to $1.4 billion. Wall Street was looking for $0.19 on revenue of $1.48 billion, according to the Bloomberg consensus. 

Under Armour now sees full-year adjusted earnings per share of $0.18 to $0.20, well below its previous forecast of $0.37 to $0.40. It also sees North American revenue up at a low single-digit percentage rate “reflecting lower North American demand and operational challenges due to the implementation of the company’s enterprise resource planning system and related service levels,” the earnings release said. 

“While our international business continues to deliver against our ambition of building a global brand, operational challenges and lower demand in North America resulted in third quarter revenue that was below our expectations,” Under Armour Chairman and CEO Kevin Plank said in the earnings release. “Based on these issues in our largest market, we believe it is prudent to reduce our sales and earnings outlook for the remainder of 2017.”

Before Tuesday’s results, shares of Under Armour were down 43.51% this year.
