Streamline Health(R) Solutions Reports First Quarter Results

Jun 03, 2010, 16:01 ET from Streamline Health Solutions, Inc.

CINCINNATI, June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: STRM) today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2010, ended April 30, 2010.

Highlights for the quarter included:

  • Application-hosted recurring revenues increased by 24%;
  • New bookings for the quarter, excluding maintenance revenue, totaled approximately $1.2 million.
  • New application-hosted BPM contract secured with Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC;
  • East Orange General Hospital in New Jersey signs on as application-hosted customer.

The Company recognized revenues of approximately $3.5 million, compared to $3.8 million in the comparable prior year quarter. The revenues recognized are derived primarily from recurring revenues recognized from application-hosted and maintenance contracts.  Recurring revenues from application-hosted contracts were up 24% for the quarter, or $162,000.  Results for the quarter were impacted by a decrease in professional services revenues of $144,000 and a decrease in hardware and third-party software sales of $182,000.  

New bookings for the quarter, excluding maintenance services were nearly $1.2 million.  Approximately 61% of these new bookings were from hosting contracts which is consistent with recent historical trends and expectations.  Backlog at April 30, 2010 was $18.6 million, compared with $19.9 million at January 31, 2010.

The Company incurred a net loss of approximately $1.2 million, or $(0.13) per fully diluted share, in the first quarter fiscal 2010, compared to net earnings of $16,000 or $0.00 per fully diluted share, in the first quarter of fiscal 2009. Operating expenses were $4.7 million, compared to $3.7 million in the comparable prior year quarter, primarily driven by increased amortization of capitalized software development costs relating to accessANYware 5.0 and other development projects reaching general release in the second half of fiscal 2009.  Additionally, increased professional services staffing, sales initiatives, legal and accounting fees, and compensation expenses, including bonus re-instatement, impacted the financial results of the quarter.  

During the first quarter of 2010, the Company completed a review by product of the estimated useful lives of its capitalized software development costs. After reviewing strategic plans, analyzing the historical useful life of the software products, forecasting product life cycles and demand expectations, the Company revised the estimated useful lives for certain products, extending the useful life from three years to five years. The Company accounted for the change in useful life as a change in accounting estimate which is accounted for on a prospective basis effective February 1, 2010. For the three months ended April 30, 2010 the change resulted in a reduction of amortization expense of approximately $250,000, an increase in income from continuing operations and net income of $250,000 and a decrease in basic and diluted loss per share of $0.03.  The annualized impact of this change should reduce capitalized software amortization expense by nearly $1.0 million.

The Company incurred a non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA loss of $276,000, or $(0.03) per fully diluted common share (adjusted), compared to adjusted EBITDA earnings of $0.08 per fully diluted common share (adjusted) in the first quarter of fiscal 2009. Streamline Health defines "adjusted EBITDA" as operating loss plus depreciation and amortization of tangible and intangible assets, and stock-based compensation expense.  The Company believes that is it useful for investors to review both the presented GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures when evaluating its performance especially given its relatively large non-cash amortization items.  

J. Brian Patsy, Chief Executive Officer of Streamline Health, commented, "We anticipate an increase in demand for our solutions as stimulus funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) become available to healthcare organizations who demonstrate "Meaningful Use" of electronic health records (EHR).  "Meaningful Use" is a federally mandated criterion for physician adoption of EHR's that many care providers are trying to achieve in order to qualify for these funds.  Our solutions can assist healthcare organizations in achieving "Meaningful Use" by conveniently providing 100% of the patient health information to the physician at the point of care, thereby encouraging full use of EHR's.  The need for medical professionals and clinicians to access usable and meaningful real-time patient information within the context of a complete medical record is growing.  Medical institutions have no choice but to better position themselves for improved operational and financial performance going forward. Our products and services provide leading-edge solutions for many of the efficiency and adoption issues that hospital organizations need to address."

"We are also pleased with the response from current customers and potential prospects on our departmental workflow solutions.  Departmental workflows are relatively moderate-cost solutions that can have a big impact in terms of efficiency and cost savings to our clients." Mr. Patsy continued, "As announced with the year-end fiscal 2009 earnings release, we secured a strategic contract with the Children's National Medical Center in Washington D.C. for our enterprise Audit Program Management Solution which supports the audits required by Medicare, Medicaid, and third-party payers.  We remain excited about the possibilities for growth in this market niche."

Mr. Patsy commented further, "As previously announced, we were selected by the East Orange General Hospital in this recent quarter to implement our accessANYware health information management hosted solution to provide enhanced operating efficiency, improve patient outcomes and achieve meaningful adoption throughout their enterprise.  Our solution will work seamlessly with East Orange Medical Center's clinical information system to provide clinicians immediate access to complete patient information."  

Mr. Patsy concluded, "We believe that the current trend of lower capital outlays by hospitals to implement new solutions will remain intact for the foreseeable future. Our application-hosted solutions directly address the strategic direction that our hospital customers have adopted. The two new application-hosted delivery contract bookings in the first quarter indicate to us that we are in the right place to address the needs of the market. We believe that our ability to be flexible in delivering solutions to the market that manage costs and improve operating efficiencies will permit us to return to consistent growth in the coming years."

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.
