Company Reiterates Annual Guidance

Jun 05, 2013, 09:00 ET from Streamline Health Solutions, Inc.

ATLANTA, June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: STRM), a leading provider of SaaS-based enterprise content management, business analytics, computer assisted coding (CAC), and clinical documentation improvement (CDI) solutions for healthcare providers, today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, which ended April 30, 2013.

At present, the Company is still in discussion with its new auditors, KPMG regarding a non-cash, non-operating expense item and the associated balance sheet liability related to the warrants issued as part of the financial transaction from August 2012. This is a balance sheet item, and has no impact on the Company's operating performance. The Company fully intends to conclude this discussion in its regular course of business prior to the filing of its 10-Q on June 14, 2013.

Revenues increased 19% for the three month period ended April 30, 2013 to $6.5 million, as compared to $5.4 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2012, despite the loss of approximately $300,000 in AccessAnyWare solutions revenue from three clients that had advised of their intentions not to renew their contracts in 2010. The quarterly increase was attributable to recurring maintenance and SaaS-based revenues primarily in the Company's Business Analytics Solutions –OpportunityAnyWare, and its Collabra suite of coding and CDI solutions, acquired as part of the Meta Health Technology, Inc. transaction completed in the third quarter of fiscal year 2012.

"We continue to gain traction in the market as witnessed by our $4.3 million dollars in new bookings during the quarter," stated Robert E. Watson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Streamline Health.  "As we look ahead, significant new client wins from this quarter will contribute net new revenue for our company this year. In addition, our cross selling efforts have resulted in our first client under contract for all three of our solution suites.  We view that as continuing to support our thesis that large healthcare provider systems will need innovative technologies to help them become more efficient, both operationally and financially."

"We believe that you cannot successfully sell into today's tumultuous healthcare provider marketplace if your solutions do not deliver meaningful return on investment to your clients. Ours do. Hence we remain comfortable with the annual guidance we provided last quarter of top line revenues between $35 and $37 million and Adjusted EBITDA between $7.5 million and $9.0 million."

Highlights for the quarter included:

  • Revenue for the first quarter 2013 was $6.5 million, an increase of 19% over the comparable period in 2012;
  • Software as a Service (SaaS) revenues for first quarter 2013 was $1.8 million, an increase of 14%  over Q1 2012;
  • Maintenance and support revenues for the first quarter 2013 was $3.4 million, a 44% increase over the comparable period in 2012;
  • New sales bookings for the quarter were $4.3 million;
  • Backlog at the end of the quarter was $53.2 million.

Operating expenses for the three-month period ending April 30, 2013 were $7.9 million, compared to $4.8 million in the comparable prior year period; an increase of $3.1 million, or 65%, over the prior year comparable period.  This increase was largely due to the acquisition of Meta Health, severances related to our office relocation, and associate stock option expense.

Backlog at April 30, 2013 was $53.2 million, compared with $51.0 million at January 31, 2013 and $31.4 million at April 30, 2012. The increase in the current backlog is primarily attributable to current clients purchasing additional solutions.
