SHL Telemedicine Reports Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

-- Revenue increased 39.2% to USD 10.3 million (USD 7.4 million in Q2 2013)

TEL AVIV, Israel and ZURICH, Aug. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SHL Telemedicine Ltd. (SIX Swiss Exchange: SHLTN, OTCPK: SMDCY), a leading provider and developer of advanced personal telemedicine solutions, today announced results for the second quarter and six months ended 30 June 2014.

Erez Alroy, Co-CEO of SHL, commented: "We have seen good momentum in our businesses leading to significantly improved financial performance for the period, even with the increased investments in our expansion initiatives. Expansion into new markets beyond Israel and Germany, based on our global smartheart™ platform, remains a key priority for SHL's growth strategy.

"In the US, we are progressing with our plans to launch our products and services, while in India we have made first steps in rolling out our telemedicine solution. In addition, since receiving approval in March to commence marketing activities in Japan, our smartheart™ platform has been accepted by over 20 leading Japanese clinics.

"We have gone through a lengthy process of receiving regulatory and marketing approvals for the smartheart™ platform in several major territories. The global interest we are witnessing is very encouraging and we are excited by the opportunities it may bring."

Financial Highlights
During the second quarter 2014, revenues increased considerably primarily due to the growth in the Company's German business, following the acquisition of almeda. Even with the increased investments in geographical expansion, SHL's financial performance has improved significantly with improved gross profit and operating results.

Revenues for the quarter grew by 39.2% (32.4% at constant exchange rates*) and amounted to USD 10.3 million compared to USD 7.4 million in Q2 2013.

For the half year revenues grew by 44.1% (37.2% at constant exchange rates) and amounted to USD 20.9 million compared to USD 14.5 million in the first half of 2013.

Gross profit for the quarter amounted to USD 5.8 million (56.3% of revenues) compared to USD 3.9 million (52.7% of revenues) in Q2 2013. Gross profit for the half year amounted to USD 11.7 million (56.0% of revenues) compared to a gross profit of USD 7.6 million (52.4% of revenues) in the first half of 2013.

EBITDA and EBIT for the half year and second quarter improved significantly over the adjusted EBITDA and EBIT of 2013, which included a one-time item lowering the general and administrative expenses.

For the quarter, EBITDA amounted to USD 1.7 million (16.5% of revenues) with EBIT at USD 0.2 million (1.9% of revenues) compared with an adjusted EBITDA and LBIT of USD 0.6 million and USD 0.7 million in the second quarter 2013.

For the half year, EBITDA amounted to USD 3.7 million (17.7% of revenues) with an EBIT of USD 0.6 million (2.9% of revenues), compared with an adjusted EBITDA of USD 0.5 million (3.4% of revenues) and an LBIT of USD 1.9 million in the first half of 2013.

Unadjusted EBITDA and EBIT for the second quarter 2013 amounted to USD 1.7 million and USD 0.4 million, respectively with EBITDA and EBIT for the first half of 2013 amounting to USD 3.1 million and USD 0.6 million, respectively.

Net Income for the quarter and half year was USD 0.1 million, or USD 0.01 per share, compared to an adjusted net loss of USD 1.1 million, for the second quarter 2013 and USD 2.8 million for the first half of 2013. Unadjusted net profit for the second quarter and first half of 2013 amounted to USD 0.1 million (USD 0.00 per share) and USD 0.3 million (USD 0.03 per share), respectively.

Cash used in operations for the quarter and half year amounted to USD 0.9 million and USD 3.3 million, respectively. Excluding USD 5.2 million received from Philips in the first quarter of 2013, which was the last payment related to the Raytel transaction, cash used in operations during the quarter and half year 2013 amounted to USD 0.8 million and USD 2 million. The decrease in operating cash flow is the result of one–time working capital requirements at almeda, for which SHL received USD 2.9 million upfront at the end of 2013. Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities amounted to USD 21.8 million at June 30, 2014.

Balance sheet included total assets at 30 June 2014 of USD 106.3 million with shareholders' equity amounting to USD 68.8 million (64.7% of balance sheet) compared to total assets of USD 108.5 million with shareholders' equity amounting to USD 68.9 million at 31 December 2013.

*Constant currency - In order to enable meaningful comparison between the results, they are also presented at constant currency exchange rates. These are calculated by translating the 2014 results using the average 2013 exchange rates instead of the current period exchange rates.

Management believes that this presentation enables a more meaningful comparison between the periods due to the significant fluctuations in NIS/USD/EUR exchange rates.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud.
