BOWIE, Md., August 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Record quarterly revenue of $117.6 million, a 17% year-over-year increase
  • Record quarterly Adjusted EBITDA of $52.7 million, a 17% year-over-year increase
  • Robust second quarter revenue less cost of revenue and Adjusted EBITDA margins of 71.4% and 44.8%, respectively
  • Record Non-GAAP net income of $27.4 million in the second quarter, resulting in Non-GAAP diluted net income of $0.18 per share

Inovalon (Nasdaq: INOV), a leading technology company providing advanced cloud-based data analytics and data-driven intervention platforms to the healthcare industry, today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2015. A conference call will be held today at 5:00 pm Eastern Time to discuss the results, management's outlook for future financial and operational performance, and certain key trends in Inovalon's business.

"We are very pleased with the results of our second quarter, the overall strong trajectory of the Company, and the degree to which we are having a positive impact on healthcare," said Keith Dunleavy, M.D., Inovalon's chief executive officer and chairman of the board.  "During the period we made significant expansions in multiple areas of our capacity, witnessed strong delivery of value to clients resulting in the acceleration of average cross-sell timelines, and meaningfully advanced our innovation and development of large-scale, real-time data integration and analytics capabilities. We are seeing a significant recognition of Inovalon's unique capabilities at both the larger, more traditional enterprise end and smaller, new-entrant end of the healthcare landscape. As we continue to bring industry-leading capabilities to the marketplace, we are very excited about not only our current client value-delivery and corporate financial performance, but also the behind the scenes advancements and preparations for further expansion in our leadership position."

Second Quarter 2015 Results

  • Revenue for the second quarter of 2015 was $117.6 million, an increase of $16.6 million, or 17%, compared with $101.0 million for the second quarter of 2014.
  • Cost of revenue for the second quarter of 2015 was $33.6 million, or 28.6% of revenue, consistent with 28.6% of revenue for the second quarter of 2014.
  • Income from operations for the second quarter of 2015 was $46.0 million, an increase of $7.2 million, or 18%, compared with $38.8 million for the second quarter of 2014.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $52.7 million for the second quarter of 2015, an increase of $7.7 million, or 17%, compared with $45.0 million for the second quarter of 2014. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 44.8% in the second quarter of 2015, compared with 44.6% for the second quarter of 2014. 
  • Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2015 was $27.4 million, resulting in Non-GAAP diluted net income per share of $0.18, compared with $25.1 million and $0.18 per share, respectively, for the second quarter of 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Non-GAAP net income are non-GAAP measures. The non-GAAP measures are described and reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measures at the end of this release.

Additional Key Highlights

  • Strong Growth & Cross-Sell: During the second quarter of 2015, Inovalon experienced strong customer contract growth both in the addition of new partners to Inovalon's client portfolio, such as Piedmont Community Health Plan and FamilyCare Health, and also notably in the number of clients expanding the number of solutions contracted with Inovalon. Very relevant in the setting of the significant expansion of contracted patient population statements of work (SOW) in 2014, the successful demonstration of value for the expanded client base during the first and second quarters of 2015 is witnessing an acceleration in cross-sell rate and the timeline associated with such additional engagements. For example, clients such as Independent Health and Gateway Health Plan, both organizations which have become clients of Inovalon within the recent quarters, have already expanded with multiple additional engagements. When compared to the historical average time to a captured follow-on SOW for clients, a metric that has been approximately 16.0 months on average since 2007, the follow-on time decreased 8.6 months (or 54%) to 7.4 months for clients adding SOWs during the first half of 2015. Further, the arrival of Affordable Care Act (ACA) related health plan populations appears to not only be providing incremental opportunities for growth, but is also providing an additional entry point for Inovalon's development of new client relationships, therefore providing a multiplier opportunity in the setting of strong value demonstration early within a new engagement. Regardless of the aforementioned average acceleration of opportunities, larger opportunities can be less predictable with regard to the amount of time to close. Such was the case in the second quarter, for example, where a large contract which was expected to close and operationalize in Q2 ultimately closed and will operationalize in late Q3. The resulting shift in revenue due to this timing impacted Q2 and will impact Q3, but is not expected to impact the full year opportunity from the engagement.
  • Interconnectivity & Automation Progress: Expanding upon Inovalon's mission to achieve significant advancements in efficiency and functionality better enabled with direct, real-time data system interconnectivity and platform automation, Inovalon made significant progress during the Q2 period. Multiple electronic health record (EHR) system integrations occurred during the quarter, adding, for example, significant provider networks utilizing Epic EHR platforms, to Inovalon's interconnectivity reach. Further, research and development associated with interconnecting with complex healthcare ecosystems, such as large provider-based integrated healthcare delivery systems which typically utilize highly diverse internal networks, progressed well during the Q2 period.  As a result of such direct-connect capabilities, Inovalon's analytics continue to expand their reach regarding the identification of necessary data, accessing such information in real-time, undertaking advanced analytical processes, and supporting the translation of such data into insight, and, in turn, insight into action in rapid succession. With the ongoing strong success in interconnectivity and related automation, the Company continues to expect revenue from fully automated cloud-based data-driven intervention platform services to expand in 2015 upwards of 100% from the level reported in 2014.
  • Capacity & Capability Expansion: The second quarter of 2015 witnessed a 26% quarter-over-quarter increase in revenue in comparison to the first quarter of 2015. In addition to the investment in operational capacity to support this growth, the Company also increased its technology development capacity during the quarter in the anticipation of certain initiatives which began in the second quarter and which are planned for acceleration in the second half of 2015. These expansions have been undertaken with a view toward not only short-term growth, but an anticipation of new significant technology capability launches and continued long term growth. The incremental investment is believed to be prudent in the setting of several future planned expansions in Inovalon's capabilities and product suite.
  • Market Dynamics: The healthcare marketplace was active with several M&A deals announced amongst leading managed care organizations during the second quarter of 2015. None of Inovalon's contracts are directly impacted in any negative way by any of the announced managed care M&A deals. Several of Inovalon's contracts may stand to benefit from the announced deals, and additional opportunities have come to light in the setting of Inovalon's cloud-based and big data technologies being uniquely capable of handling the integration and analysis of data for larger patient populations. Inovalon is in various stages of discussion with regard to these opportunities. In addition, divestitures of portions of patient populations that may be required for any regulatory approval of the announced deals are expected to result in the expansion of certain managed care organizations which are believed to be opportunities for Inovalon.
  • Tax Rate Change: During the quarter, New York City enacted corporate tax reform legislation retroactive to January 1, 2015 which increased the Company's effective tax rate by 1.7% and 1.1% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, respectively. This legislation negatively impacted Non-GAAP diluted net income per share during the quarter by $0.01. The cumulative effect of tax legislation modifications are expected to negatively impact the full year Non-GAAP diluted net income per share for 2015 by approximately $0.03.

Other Financial Data and Key Metrics

The following constitute other financial and key metrics which are presented quarterly. Please see the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for further detail.

  • Growth of Datasets: At June 30, 2015, the MORE2 Registry® dataset contained more than 123 million unique patient counts and 9.8 billion medical event counts, increases of 10% and 12%, respectively, compared with June 30, 2014.
  • Investment in Innovation: For the three months ended June 30, 2015, Inovalon's ongoing investment supporting innovations in advanced, cloud‑based data analytics and data‑driven intervention platforms was $11.2 million, or 10% of revenue, compared with $11.1 million, or 11% of revenue, for the three months ended June 30, 2014. The timing of investment may vary from quarter to quarter.
  • Analytical Process Count Growth: Inovalon's trailing 12 month Patient Analytical Month (PAM) count, which the Company believes is indicative of the Company's overall level of analytical activity, grew to a record 18.8 billion at June 30, 2015, an increase of 30% as compared with June 30, 2014.

The metrics Patient Population Statements of Work (SOWs) and Data Analytics and Data-Driven Intervention Mix are annual metrics and will continue to be provided by the Company on an annual basis.

2015 Financial Guidance

Inovalon is affirming the full-year 2015 guidance released on May 6, 2015, with the exception of updating Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP diluted net income per share to reflect the effect of intra-quarter changes in New York City tax and other statutory tax regulation changes. Our full year 2015 guidance is summarized as follows:

  • Revenue is expected to be between $425 million and $445 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $156 million and $162 million
  • Non-GAAP net income of between $75 million and $80 million
  • Non-GAAP diluted net income per share of between $0.51 and $0.54

In addition to the above affirmation, Inovalon is affirming the general guidance with respect to full-year 2015 Data Analytics and Data-Driven Intervention Revenue Mix previously released on May 6, 2015.

Further, Inovalon is providing the following general guidance for its third quarter of 2015 reflecting contract signing timing dynamics discussed previously within this release:

  • Revenue is expected to be between $97 million and $105 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be between $26 million and $32 million
  • Non-GAAP net income of between $12 million and $15 million
  • Non-GAAP diluted net income per share of between $0.08 and $0.10

While changes in the stock price could change the fully diluted share count, under the treasury stock method, the Company is assuming 151.4 million shares outstanding on a weighted average fully diluted basis for the third quarter of 2015, and 148.4 million shares for the full year 2015.  Additionally, inherent in the revised guidance provided for Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP diluted net income per share is an increase in the effective tax rate from 41% to 43%.

In an effort to support understanding of the Company's seasonality and initial introduction of the Company to the marketplace, Inovalon has been providing quarterly and full-year financial guidance for its first fiscal year as a publicly traded company and will evaluate the provisioning of quarterly financial guidance for future periods.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Inovalon provides the measures Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and Non-GAAP net income as additional information for evaluating the Company's operating results. These measures are not prepared in accordance with, or an alternative for, GAAP accounting and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Investors frequently have requested information from management regarding depreciation, amortization other non-cash charges, such as stock-based compensation, as well as the impact of non-comparable items and management believes, based on discussions with investors, that these non-GAAP measures enhance investors' ability to assess Inovalon's historical and projected future financial performance. While management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, there are limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. For example, one limitation of Adjusted EBITDA is that it excludes depreciation and amortization, which represents the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues in our business. Inovalon compensates for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP measures that are provided above.

These non-GAAP measures include financial information that is prepared in accordance with GAAP and presented in our consolidated financial statements and are used to evaluate our business, measure our performance, develop financial forecasts and make strategic decisions and as an important factor in determining variable compensation.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income calculated in accordance with GAAP, adjusted for the impact of depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income, provision for income taxes, stock‑based compensation, other non‑comparable income and expenses, and certain legal costs. A reconciliation of net income, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, to Adjusted EBITDA is provided above.

Adjusted EBITDA margin is the Company's calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, divided by revenue calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin as supplemental measures of performance to gain insight into operating effectiveness. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin as key metrics to assess its ability to increase revenues while controlling expense growth and the scalability of the Company's business model. The Company believes that the exclusion of the expenses eliminated in calculating Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin provides management and investors a useful measure for period‑to‑period comparisons of the Company's core business and operating results by excluding items that are not comparable across reporting periods or that do not otherwise relate to the Company's ongoing operating results. Accordingly, the Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company's operating results. However, use of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin as analytical tools has limitations, and investors and others should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our financial results as reported under GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in Inovalon's industry, might calculate Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin or similarly titled measures differently, which may reduce their usefulness as comparative measures.

Non-GAAP net income

The Company defines Non-GAAP net income as net income calculated in accordance with GAAP, adjusted to exclude tax-affected stock-based compensation expense, tax-affected amortization of acquired intangible assets, and tax-affected other non-comparable income and expenses. 

The Company uses Non-GAAP net income as a supplemental measure of performance to gain insight into financial effectiveness. The Company uses Non-GAAP net income as a key metric to assess its ability to increase revenues while controlling expense growth and the scalability of its business model. The Company believes that the exclusion of the expenses eliminated in calculating Non-GAAP net income  provides management and investors a useful measure for period to period comparisons of the Company's core business and financial results by excluding items that are not comparable across reporting periods or that do not otherwise relate to its ongoing financial results. Accordingly, the Company believes that Non-GAAP net income provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company's performance. However, use of Non-GAAP net income as an analytical tool has limitations, and investors and others should not consider this measure in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company's financial results as reported under GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in Inovalon's industry, might calculate Non-GAAP net income or similarly titled measures differently, which may reduce their usefulness as comparative measures.
