Greenway Reports Fiscal 2013 Third-Quarter Results

Greenway Medical Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: GWAY), which delivers innovative software and business service solutions for healthcare care providers through its PrimeSUITE® platform, today announced financial results for the three months and nine months ended March 31, 2013.

“Our efforts to shift the adoption of our PrimeSUITE platform from license sales to cloud-based services has accelerated the shift in our revenue streams to recurring sources during the fiscal 2013 third quarter,” said Tee Green, president and chief executive officer of Greenway®. “This has reduced our revenue from one-time systems sales and training, but moved us faster than anticipated to a business model that is recurring in nature and more predictable than we have experienced with non-recurring revenue. We’re managing through this transition in our business, continuing to add providers to our platform, growing our backlog, and increasing the percentage of our backlog and revenue that is comprised of revenue from recurring sources.”

Operating Results

Greenway generated revenue of $33.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, a 3% increase from $32.9 million for the comparable prior-year period. Revenue from recurring sources grew by 28% from the prior-year period, and comprised 56.6% of total revenue, up from 45.5% of revenue for the fiscal 2012 third quarter. During the fiscal 2013 third quarter compared to the prior-year period, revenue from the company’s cloud-based PrimeSUITE subscription offering increased by 61%, PrimePATIENT® revenue grew by 63%, and PrimeEXCHANGE® interoperability engine revenue grew by 38%, and revenue from the Company’s clinically driven revenue cycle management services grew by 49%. This was offset by 2% growth of System Sales and a decline in Training and Consulting revenue related to fewer deployments than in the prior-year period, as well as deferred implementations at several large enterprise sites. Through the first nine months of fiscal 2013, Greenway’s revenue has grown by 13%, to $99.3 million, compared with $87.6 million through nine months ended March 31, 2012.

Greenway generated gross profit of $16.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, which compares with gross profit of $18.0 million for the prior-year period. Gross profit margin for the fiscal 2013 third quarter was 49.8%. The Company’s overall gross profit and gross margin is being impacted by the shift in the Company’s revenue sources, specifically fewer one-time Systems Sales as well as lower Training and Consulting revenue associated with one-time System Sales, that is being replaced by revenue growth and gross margin expansion of revenue from recurring sources. Gross margin for recurring revenue sources grew to 55.8% for the three months ended March 31, 2013, from 53.7% for the prior-year period.

Through nine months of fiscal 2013 ended March 31, 2013, Greenway has earned gross profit of $52.1 million, an increase of 13% from $46.3 million through nine months of fiscal 2012. Overall gross margin was 52.5% through nine months ended March 31, 2013, which compares with 52.8% through nine months of fiscal 2012.

Greenway reported a loss from operations of ($2.8 million) for the fiscal 2013 third quarter, which compares with operating income of $2.2 million for the prior-year period. Through nine months ended March 31, 2013, Greenway has reported an operating loss of ($4.8 million), which compares with operating income of $1.3 million for the prior-year period.

The Company had a net loss of ($608,000), or (two cents) per share, based on 29.7 million shares outstanding for the three months ended March 31, 2013. This compares with net income of $1.4 million, or six cents per share based on a weighted average 24.1 million shares outstanding for the fiscal 2012 third quarter.

As of March 31, 2013, Greenway had $13.2 million in cash and short-term investments and no outstanding indebtedness.

Non-GAAP Measures

Greenway’s non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, acquisition-related transaction costs and stock-based compensation, was $588,000, or 2% of revenue, for the three months ended March 31, 2013, down from $4.0 million, or 12% of revenue, from the prior-year period. Through nine months ended March 31, 2013, Greenway’s adjusted EBITDA was $4.5 million, or 5% of revenue, which compares with $6.2 million, or 7% of revenue, through nine months ended March 31, 2012.

Adjusted, or non-GAAP net income, which is defined as net income before stock-based compensation, acquisition-related transaction costs and amortization of purchased intangibles and any estimated tax impact related to these items, was $409,000 or one cent per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2013. This compares with non-GAAP net income of $1.8 million, or eight cents per diluted share for the third quarter of fiscal 2013. For the nine months ended March 31, 2013, Greenway’s non-GAAP net income was $1.3 million or four cents per share, which compares with adjusted net income of $2.3 million, or 14 cents per share, through nine months ended March 31, 2012.

The GAAP financial measures most directly comparable to each non-GAAP financial measure used, and a reconciliation of the differences between each non-GAAP financial measure and the comparable GAAP financial measure, are included in this press release following the condensed financial statements.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Comparable GAAP Measures

(Unaudited, in thousands, except share amounts)

The following is a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company in describing its financial performance in accordance with U.S. “generally accepted accounting principles” (GAAP). An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures”. While management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors regarding the Company’s operations, investors are reminded to consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not a substitute for, financial performance measures in accordance with GAAP. In addition, it should be noted that these non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, and management may utilize other measures to illustrate performance in the future. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company’s results of the operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company’s management believes that investors may wish to consider the impact of certain non-cash or non-recurring items as a supplement to financial performance measures in accordance with GAAP. These items result from facts and circumstances that may vary in frequency and impact on continuing operations. Management also presents results of operations before such items to evaluate operating performance, compare performance against past periods and as a basis for strategic planning. These non-GAAP financial measures provide management with additional means to understand and evaluate operating results and trends by eliminating certain non-cash expenses and other items that management believes might complicate comparisons with prior periods, obscure current trends or reduce the ability to make useful forecasts. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide additional means of evaluating performance, period-over-period. In addition, management understands that some investors and financial analysts find this information useful in analyzing the Company’s financial and operational performance and comparing such performance to peers and competitors.

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, acquisition-related transaction costs and stock-based compensation. It is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company’s performance. However, Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP.

Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income before stock-based compensation, acquisition-related transaction costs and amortization of purchased intangibles and any tax impact related to these items.

Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income Per Diluted Share is defined as Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Management considers all of these non-GAAP financial measures to be useful indicators of the Company’s performance and a measure of historical trends.

The following items are excluded from non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income and related Per Diluted Share financial measures referenced above, and the reasons therefore are:

  • Stock-based compensation — Excluded because these are non-cash expenses that management does not consider useful in assessing ongoing operating results or performance of the business, and also because the amount of the expense is not totally within the Company’s control since it is based on factors such as stock price, volatility and interest rates which may be unrelated to the Company’s performance during the period the expense is incurred.
  • Amortization of purchased intangibles — Purchased intangibles are amortized over their estimated useful life and generally cannot be influenced after the acquisition. Accordingly, this item is not considered by management in making operating decisions. Thus, including such charges does not accurately reflect the performance for the period in which such charge is incurred.
  • Acquisition-related transaction costs — Transaction costs associated with acquisitions are non-recurring and related specifically to a subject acquisition. Accordingly, management does not believe that they reflect the underlying performance of ongoing business operations for the period incurred.
