LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- Patient Home Monitoring (PHM) (TSX VENTURE:PHM) today released its financial results for the third quarter ended June 30, 2014.
PHM is rolling-up a large and fragmented market of small, profitable businesses providing healthcare products and services to chronically ill patients. The companies are acquired for their technical and market expertise in certain product and service lines, as well as their patient databases. Once acquired, PHM works to offer these newly acquired services to its entire patient base, thereby increasing revenue per patient and achieving organic post acquisition revenue growth and profits.
-- Revenue rose to $5.5 million, a 51% increase from the previous quarter and a 499% increase year over year. -- Revenues include only June 2014 of the Care Medical acquisition ($1.33 million). -- June Revenue exceeded $2.7 million or $32 million annualized run rate revenue.
Significant Organic Revenue Growth including Cross-Selling
-- Over 5.3% quarterly increase in quarter-over-quarter sales attributed to organic growth, an annual run rate growth of 21.4% in quarter-over- quarter organic sales. -- New internal call center fully implemented and generating cross-selling leads utilizing the Company's growing database of active patients.
-- Earnings per share (EPS) rose 53.8% from the previous quarter.(1) -- Net profit rose to $896,345, a 61% increase from the previous quarter.(2) -- Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) including transactional and nonrecurring cost rose to $1,293,773 a 63% increase from the previous quarter.(3) -- Annualized EBITDA run rate exceeding $6.2 million.
Mergers & Acquisitions Update
-- Closed Care Medical Partners Acquisition June 1, 2014, contributing revenues and profits for only 33% of the quarter. -- 1 large ($8 million+ in revenue) acquisition target moving towards a Letter of Intent (LOI). -- 2 small ($1-2 million in revenue) acquisition targets moving towards LOIs. -- Over $15 million of leverageable assets on the balance sheet to close the next several acquisitions without the need for equity financing.
Stronger Balance Sheet
-- $5.25 million cash balance as of August 1, 2014, as compared to $3.52 million reported on June 30, 2014. -- Generated $1.0 million in cash flow from operations for the quarter. -- Acquired $7.3 million in home-based medical equipment as fixed assets fiscal year-to-date (October 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014). -- $5.19 million in Accounts Receivable as of August 1, 2014.

"We continue to execute on our strategic plan with another record quarter," said Michael Dalsin, Chairman of PHM. "As of June 2014, PHM is generating over $32 million in annualized revenues and $6.2 million in annualized EBITDA. It was a break out quarter for PHM with regard to expansion of our active patient databases. The cross-selling and organic growth efforts resulted in an annual organic revenue growth rate of over 21.4% for the quarter. It is gratifying to see PHM move from solely a M&A focused company to one that can deliver both organic and inorganic growth at a material level.
It is important to keep in mind that this quarter's revenues and profits only included the month of June of the Care Medical Partners acquisition. Had the full quarter included Care Medical Partners, quarterly revenues would have exceeded $8 million and net profits would have exceeded $1.25 million.
On the acquisition front, PHM's M&A team is negotiating LOIs to acquire profitable companies with cumulative revenues of about $12 million. Our pipeline remains full with the M&A team reviewing over a dozen opportunities a month.
I want to once again congratulate the operational team, led by Andrew Folmer on a record quarter, both in terms of revenues and profits. Particularly I want to credit David Hayes, our Senior Vice President of Sales, with setting up our internal cross selling call center. I also want to credit Jess Cuthbert, our VP of Operations and Asa Stafford, our VP of Patient Services for their work in integrating Care Medical into PHM."
PHM is an acquisition-oriented, fast-growing and profitable company servicing patients with heart disease and other chronic health conditions. PHM is focused on acquiring companies in a highly fragmented and developing market of small privately-held companies servicing chronically ill patients with multiple disease states caused mainly by age and obesity. Because of the new and highly fragmented nature of the market, PHM is actively identifying and evaluating profitable, annuity-based companies to acquire at favorable prices for their patient databases and technical expertise. PHM's post-acquisition organic growth strategy is to increase annual revenue per patient by offering multiple services to the same patient, consolidating the patient's services and making life easier for the patient. The expected result is growing EPS with each acquisition and growing revenue and profits from the cross selling efforts.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
