Birner Dental Management Services, Inc. Announces Earnings For 3Q 2013

DENVER, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Birner Dental Management Services, Inc. (NASDAQ Capital Market: BDMS), operators of PERFECT TEETH® dental practices, announced results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2013.  For the quarter ended September 30, 2013, revenue increased $352,000, or 2.2%, to $16.1 million.  The Company's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, and non-cash expense associated with stock-based compensation ("Adjusted EBITDA") decreased $689,000, or 44.4%, to $862,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.  Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 decreased $382,000, or 99.8%, to $1,000 compared to $383,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.  Earnings per share decreased to $0.0 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared to $0.21 for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

During the quarter ended September 30, 2013 there was a remeasurement and subsequent write down of contingent liabilities by $196,000, which was recognized as other income. 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, revenue increased $1.4 million, or 3.0%, to $49.1 million.  The Company's Adjusted EBITDA decreased $519,000, or 12.7%, to $3.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 decreased $412,000, or 49.4%, to $422,000 compared to $834,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.  Earnings per share decreased to $0.23 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to $0.45 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.

The remeasurement and subsequent write down of contingent liabilities by $196,000 was recognized as other income during the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Since the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company has opened three de novo offices: in Tucson, Arizona in the fourth quarter of 2012; in Erie, Colorado in the fourth quarter of 2012; and in Loveland, Colorado in July 2013.  The Company has leased space for two additional de novo offices: in Monument, Colorado, anticipated to open in the fourth quarter of 2013; and in Fort Collins, Colorado, anticipated to open in the second quarter of 2014.  The Company is also evaluating and negotiating leases on additional sites throughout its markets.  Additionally, the Company has signed new leases for the relocation and modernization of two of its offices: in Denver, Colorado, which opened in September 2013; and in Albuquerque, New Mexico, anticipated to open in the first quarter of 2014.  During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company completed remodels and/or relocations on two of its offices and converted seven additional offices to digital radiography. 

Fred Birner, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated that "While the decrease in Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2013 was disappointing, particularly in light of the increased revenue in the quarter, it reflects our substantial investments in the Company, not only in capital projects as noted above but also personnel and training.  We have yet to see the corresponding returns but believe we are doing the right thing for long term growth and value."

During the first nine months of 2013, the Company had capital expenditures of approximately $3.5 million, paid approximately $1.2 in dividends to its shareholders and increased total bank debt outstanding by approximately $2.4 million.  The Company's outstanding bank debt increased because of the Company's development of de novo offices and its commitment to upgrading its existing offices through extensive remodels and/or office relocations and its continued commitment to converting its offices to digital radiography. 

Birner Dental Management Services, Inc. acquires, develops, and manages geographically dense dental practice networks in select markets in Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona.  The Company currently manages 66 dental offices, of which 37 were acquired and 29 were de novo developments.  The Company currently has 121 dentists.  The Company operates its dental offices under the PERFECT TEETH® name.

The Company previously announced it would conduct a conference call to review results for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 on Thursday, November 14, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. MT.  In addition to current operating results, the teleconference may include discussion of management's expectations of future financial and operating results. To participate in this conference call, dial in to 1-866-598-9773 and refer to Confirmation Code 5572821 approximately five minutes prior to the scheduled time.

Reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is not a U.S. generally accepted accounting principle ("GAAP") measure of performance or liquidity. However, the Company believes that it may be useful to an investor in evaluating the Company's ability to meet future debt service, capital expenditures and working capital requirements, and the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA for this purpose.  Investors should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for operating income, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure for determining the Company's operating performance or liquidity that is calculated in accordance with GAAP. In addition, because Adjusted EBITDA is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, it may not necessarily be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income can be made by adding depreciation and amortization expense - Offices, depreciation and amortization expense – Corporate, stock-based compensation expense, interest expense, net and income tax expense to net income and subtracting the change in fair value of contingent liabilities as in the table below.
