Streamline Health® Solutions Reports Q2 Results

Sep 12, 2011, 16:01 ET from Streamline Health Solutions, Inc.

CINCINNATI, Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: STRM) today announced financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, ended July 31, 2011.

Highlights for the quarter and the six-month period included:

  • Recurring maintenance revenues improved by 16% over the prior comparable quarter;
  • Recurring software-as-a-service (SaaS) revenues for the quarter increased 3% over the prior comparable quarter;
  • New bookings for the quarter, excluding maintenance revenue, exceeded $1.8 million;
  • Backlog at quarter end was $18.1 million;
  • Adjusted EBITDA on a year-to-date basis increased 100%;
  • In August 2011, St. Vincent's Medical Center extended its agreement with Streamline Health's strategic partner, GE Healthcare. Under the terms of the seven-year agreement, the healthcare system will be converting from a licensing model to Streamline Health's SaaS model, and will upgrade to a new accessANYware version with additional HIM workflows;

Revenues for the second quarter totaled $4.1 million, compared to $4.7 million in the prior year second quarter, the decrease in revenue is primarily the result of two large proprietary license sales that were recognized in the second quarter of fiscal 2010, that did not have comparable sales in the current quarter.

Recurring revenues from maintenance contracts improved by 16% or $300,000 over the prior comparable second quarter. The increase is due to the continued revenue recognition from backlog, and the incremental maintenance revenues from systems sold in prior quarters for which maintenance periods commenced subsequent to their respective sales in prior quarters.  SaaS revenues increased by $29,000 or 3% over the prior comparable quarter due to one large customer subscription sold in fiscal 2010 which reached go-live status in fiscal 2011.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 were $4.1 million compared with $4.7 million in the comparable prior year quarter.  This decrease of approximately $600,000 was the result of management's action to implement more sustainable staffing levels, processes, and costs; these reductions coupled with decreased capitalized software amortization due to older assets becoming fully amortized subsequent to the first half of fiscal 2010.

As a result, the Company recorded a net loss for the second quarter ended July 31, 2011 of $7,000, or $0.00 per fully diluted share, compared with net loss of $76,000, or $0.01 per fully diluted share, for the prior year comparable quarter. Adjusted EBITDA* (a non-GAAP measure) for the quarter ended July 31, 2011 was $919,000, or $0.09 per fully diluted common share (adjusted), compared to $990,000, or $0.10 per fully diluted common share (adjusted) in the comparable prior quarter. A reconciliation table is provided below.

New bookings for the second quarter, excluding maintenance services, were $1.9 million, primarily consisting of SaaS term fees and professional services.

Backlog at July 31, 2011 was $18.1 million, compared with $18.9 million at July 31, 2010 and $17.6 million at January 31, 2011.  The decrease in the current backlog reflects recognition of revenue from SaaS and maintenance contracts in the prior backlog and the addition to the backlog of new maintenance, software and professional services contracts sold in the quarters subsequent to July 31, 2010.

Robert E. Watson, president and chief executive officer of Streamline Health said, "While revenues are up slightly on a year-to-date basis, adjusted EBITDA for the six month period is up 100% versus the comparable period last year. That is meaningful progress despite the dual burden of high severance costs and the costs to bring on-board the appropriate executives and associates as we continue to reposition this company to achieve material annual growth rates consistent with other high growth healthcare information technology companies. As I've indicated previously this is a process and we are moving along that continuum at a consistent rate. I am pleased with the progress this new management team has made in the two quarters of its tenure."

Mr. Watson continued, "We are also pleased with the transitioning of the University of Virginia Health System to a 'direct client' of Streamline Health coupled with their purchase of additional workflow technology, and the transitioning of St. Vincent's Medical Center from a maintenance client to a long term SaaS client. This strongly reflects the new commitment of our sales force to gain a deeper understanding of our clients and to present solutions on how we might better meet their needs. In conjunction with a strong focus on managing operating expenses, we are making meaningful progress in recalibrating Streamline Health to become a leading healthcare information technology company."

* Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Streamline Health reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). Streamline Health's management also evaluates and makes operating decisions using various other measures. One such measure is adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Streamline Health's management believes that these measures provide useful supplemental information regarding the performance of Streamline Health's business operations.

Streamline Health defines "adjusted EBITDA" as net earnings (loss) plus interest expense, tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense of tangible and intangible assets, and stock-based compensation expense.  A table illustrating this measure is included in this publication.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(Unaudited)

Table C

This press release contains a non-GAAP financial measure under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for adjusted EBITDA. This non-GAAP information supplements and is not intended to represent a measure of performance in accordance with disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles. Non-GAAP financial measures are used internally to manage the business, such as in establishing an annual operating budget. Non-GAAP financial measures are used by Streamline Health's management in its operating and financial decision-making because management believes these measures reflect ongoing business in a manner that allows meaningful period-to-period comparisons. Accordingly, the Company believes it is useful for investors and others to review both GAAP and non-GAAP measures in order to (a) understand and evaluate current operating performance and future prospects in the same manner as management does and (b) compare in a consistent manner the company's current financial results with past financial results. The primary limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures are that these measures may not be directly comparable to the amounts reported by other companies and they do not include all items of income and expense that affect operations. The Company's management compensates for these limitations by considering the company's financial results and outlook as determined in accordance with GAAP and by providing a detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the tables attached to this press release.
