ATLANTA, April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: STRM), a leading provider of transformational data-driven solutions to help healthcare providers reduce exposure to risk, enhance clinical, financial, and operational performance, and improve patient care, today announced that the release of its fourth quarter and fiscal year end 2013 financial results, which ended January 31, 2014, will be reported in mid to late May. The Company's new auditor is completing the Company's audit for fiscal year 2013, which is the first year the Company is required to provide an audit of internal controls pursuant to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, as well as shorter filing deadlines as an accelerated filer.
"Clearly the delays in filing our fiscal year 2013 fourth quarter and year end results are frustrating, but we are committed to providing confidence and transparency in the Company's financial statements and we are working to ensure that this delay is a one-time only event," stated Nicholas Meeks, Chief Financial Officer, Streamline Health. "The issues identified in the course of the audit relate to valuation of stock based compensation, the accounting treatment of the conversion of previously issued convertible preferred stock to common stock in the second half of the fiscal year, recognition of revenue timing, and capitalization of software development. At this time, we have no reason to anticipate the results of the audit will lead to any material and adverse change in our previously reported yearly results."
Streamline Health FY 2013 Performance
"While the delay is not ideal, we elected to take this minor delay to assure that the issues noted above were properly addressed to our satisfaction. Fortunately these outstanding items have nothing to do with the fundamental direction or operations of the company," stated Robert E. Watson, President and Chief Executive Officer, Streamline Health. "For example, looking back on 2013, I believe it was another transformational year for our company. We continued to make great progress in changing this company from the single-solution, perpetual licensed-based revenue company that existed when this management team arrived in early 2011 to a full platform of software-as-a-service based solutions designed to help our clients reduce exposure to risk, enhance their clinical, financial and operational performance and improve patient care."
In 2013 Streamline Health:
- Increased bookings 14% to $21.4 million dollars. In the fourth quarter new contract bookings were $5.3 million. In addition, there were $1.3 million in renewals in the quarter and $5.9 million in renewals for the entire fiscal year.
- Backlog increased 11% to $56.6 million of which $21.1 million were SaaS-based revenue. At the end of 2010 the backlog was $17.6 million, of which $7.4 million were SaaS-based revenue.
- Expanded our suite of solutions to include Patient Engagement, via the Unibased Systems Architecture acquisition and Patient Care, via the exclusive license from Montefiore Medical Center.
"We look forward to discussing the specific financial performance of our fourth quarter and fiscal year 2013 by the end of May," stated Watson.
First Quarter 2014 Performance
In first quarter of fiscal 2014, the Company realized three 'go-lives' that are expected to generate recurring revenue beginning primarily in the second quarter of this fiscal year. The newly acquired solutions from Unibased led to a new sale via one of our distribution partners, and the Company signed several long-term renewals of existing client engagements in the first quarter.
"We view these renewals as a positive commentary on the Company's value proposition. The total of net new sales bookings and long term renewal agreements in the quarter exceeded $10 million, and was heavily weighted to renewals. We provide solutions to many of the largest healthcare enterprises in the country in a very vendor competitive environment– these are organizations that can choose to do business with anyone, and they choose to do business with Streamline Health because our solutions deliver real and demonstrable value and a return on their investment," continued Watson.
The results for the 2013 fiscal year and the first quarter 2014 are preliminary. The Company plans to issue complete financial results for the 2013 fiscal year in mid to late May 2014 and for the first quarter 2014 in mid-June 2014.
