Streamline Health(R) Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Performance

Fourth Quarter 2018: Revenues $5.5 Million; Net Loss ($3.1 Million); Adjusted EBITDA $1.1 Million

Fiscal Year 2018: Revenues $22.4 Million; Net Loss ($5.9 Million); Adjusted EBITDA $2.9 Million; Cash from Operations $1.4 Million

ATLANTA, GA / ACCESSWIRE / April 22, 2019 / Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: STRM), provider of integrated solutions, technology-enabled services and analytics supporting revenue cycle optimization for healthcare enterprises, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2018, which ended January 31, 2019.

Revenues for the three-month period ended January 31, 2019 were approximately $5.5 million, up slightly from revenues for the quarter ended October 31, 2018, but down approximately 10% from fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. Recurring revenue comprised 88% of total revenue in the quarter ended January 31, 2019. Revenues for fiscal year 2018 were $22.4 million, down approximately 8% from $24.3 million the previous fiscal year. Recurring revenues for the year constituted 80% of overall revenue.

Net loss for the fourth quarter was approximately ($3.1 million) as compared to net income of $38,000 in the same period a year ago. Excluding the impairment charge of ($3.7 million) described below and the adjustment to costs associated with the New York facility sublease of $0.3 million, net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2018 would have been $251,000, which would have been higher than the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017. Net loss for the fiscal year 2018 was approximately ($5.9 million) as compared to a net loss of approximately ($3.1 million) in fiscal year 2017. Net loss for fiscal 2018 would have been ($1.2 million) before the impairment charge of ($3.7 million) and exit costs of ($1.0 million).

Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2018 was approximately $1.1 million, down from approximately $1.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA for fiscal year 2018 totaled $2.9 million, up approximately 4% from the previous fiscal year.

“Looking at this fiscal year and next, we are excited about our growth prospects for a number of reasons,” stated David Sides, President and Chief Executive Officer, Streamline Health. “First we doubled our bookings in 2018 over 2017 which we believe is partially a result of focusing our company’s resources on solutions and services in the mid-revenue cycle portion of our industry. This segment of the market is projected to double in size from approximately $3 billion last year to $6 billion by 2026. Second, we have transitioned from investing in the development of new technologies, like eValuator™, to investing in the sales of those new solutions, which is the logical next phase in any normal business cycle. Third, we have a new Chief Revenue Officer who has generated positive growth at his previous places of employment and a new Chairman of the Board with a very successful track record in our industry. On growth, we believe the effect of attrition in our legacy solutions will be less impactful in the years ahead due to our initiative to create multi-year contracts as we grow revenue around it.

In addition, our cost containment processes have delivered significant improvement in our Adjusted EBITDA which we plan to use to fuel revenue growth.”

“Looking back at our fourth quarter and fiscal year 2018 performance, we met or exceeded our objectives in some areas and fell short in others. We were pleased at the growth of our backlog, and year-over-year growth in bookings as we view these measures as a leading indicator of the foundation for growth that is expected in fiscal 2019. During the fourth quarter we addressed the need to write off all of the assets of our Clinical Analytics solution which the Company acquired in fiscal 2013 as a move into the healthcare research arena, which resulted in an impairment charge of $3.7 milion. The determination to write off these assets is also a reflection of our efforts to focus solely on the middle of the revenue cycle.”

Highlights for the fourth quarter ended January 31, 2019 included:

  • Revenue for the fourth quarter 2018 was $5.5 million;
  • Net loss for the fourth quarter 2018 was $(3.1 million);
  • Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter 2018 was $1.1 million;
  • Bookings for the fourth quarter 2018 were $1.1 million;
  • Bookings for fiscal year 2018 were up to $8.2 million from $4.7 million in fiscal year 2017;
  • Total Backlog for fiscal year 2018 was approximately $28.0 million.

*Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Streamline Health’s management believes that this measure provides 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, stock-based compensation expense, significant non-recurring operating expenses, and transactional related expenses including: gains and losses on debt and equity conversions, associate severances and related restructuring expenses, associate inducements, and professional and advisory fees. A table illustrating this measure is included in this press release.

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. Streamline Health’s management in its operating and financial decision-making uses non-GAAP financial measures 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. Streamline Health defines “adjusted EBITDA” as net earnings (loss) plus interest expense, tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense of tangible and intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, significant non-recurring operating expenses, and transactional related expenses including: gains and losses on debt and equity conversions, associate severances and related restructuring expenses, associate inducements, and professional and advisory fees. A table illustrating this measure is included in this press release.
