"We are pleased with our 2013 year end results as well as the strong fourth quarter close," said Neil de Crescenzo, president and chief executive officer for Emdeon. "As we develop innovative products and services that build upon our core capabilities and delight our customers, we look forward to increasing positive momentum across all of our lines of business in 2014."

Fourth quarter 2013 revenue was $320.1 million, an increase of 8.7%, compared to $294.4 million for the same period in 2012. This increase in revenue was primarily due to business growth. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $16.5 million compared to $10.3 million for the same period in 2012. This increase in net loss compared to the corresponding prior year period was primarily due to a charge related to cancelling a product development project and other non-routine charges.

Fourth quarter 2013 Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA increased 8.7% to $85.5 million, or 26.7% of revenue, from Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $78.7 million, or 26.7% of revenue, for the comparable period in 2012. This increase in Adjusted EBITDA compared to the same period in 2012 is primarily due to business growth, partially offset by increased investments related to sales and other strategic growth initiatives.

For the year ended December 31, 2013, revenue was $1,242.6 million compared to $1,152.3 million for 2012, an increase of 7.8%. This increase in revenue was primarily due to business growth, including the June 2013 acquisition of Goold Health Systems. Net loss for 2013 was $74.5 million compared to $78.3 million in 2012. The improvement in the net loss was primarily due to business growth and reduced interest rates as a result of the repricing of Emdeon's term debt in April 2013.  

Full year 2013 Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA increased 2.4% to $324.0 million, or 26.1% of revenue, from Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $316.4 million, or 27.5% of revenue, for the comparable period in 2012. This increase was primarily due to the impact of business growth, partially offset by increased investments related to sales and other strategic growth initiatives.

A reconciliation of Emdeon's financial results determined in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) to certain non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this release to supplement its unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis.  An explanation of these non-GAAP measures is also included below under the heading "Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Emdeon's management believes that, in order to properly understand Emdeon's short-term and long-term financial trends, investors may wish to consider the impact of certain non-cash or non-operating items, when used as a supplement to financial performance measures prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).  Management uses results of operations before such excluded items to evaluate the operational performance of Emdeon as a basis for strategic planning and as a performance evaluation metric in determining achievement of certain executive and management incentive compensation programs.  Investors should consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.  In addition to the description provided below, reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP results are provided in the financial statement tables included in this release.

In this release, Emdeon defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA (which is defined as net income before income tax provision (benefit), net interest expense and depreciation and amortization), plus certain other non-cash or non-operating items (collectively, "EBITDA Adjustments").

To properly evaluate Emdeon's business, Emdeon encourages investors to review the GAAP financial information included in this release, and not rely on any single financial measure to evaluate Emdeon's business.  Emdeon also strongly encourages investors to review the reconciliation of net income (loss) to the non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA.  Adjusted EBITDA, as Emdeon defines it, may differ from and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies, because Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and is susceptible to varying calculations.  Adjusted EBITDA calculations are also used in our credit facilities and indentures, although the adjustments used to calculate Adjusted EBITDA as used in our credit facilities and indentures may vary in certain respects among such agreements and from those presented below.

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to facilitate a comparison of Emdeon's operating performance on a consistent basis from period to period that, when viewed in combination with Emdeon's GAAP results, management believes provides a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting Emdeon's business than GAAP measures alone.  Management believes this non-GAAP measure assists Emdeon's board of directors, management, lenders and investors in comparing Emdeon's operating performance on a consistent basis because it removes where applicable, the impact of Emdeon's capital structure, asset base, acquisition accounting, non-cash charges and non-operating items from Emdeon's operating performance.
