MARKHAM, ON, Aug. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - Nightingale Informatix Corporation ("Nightingale" or the "Company") (TSX-V: NGH), an application service provider (ASP) of electronic health record (EHR) software and related services, announces its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.

  • Revenue was $3.7 million, down 1% compared to $3.8 million in Q1 F2014, and down 7% from $4.0 million in Q4 F2014. The variance from F2014 primarily reflects a decrease in non-recurring revenues which was partially offset by a 9% increase in recurring revenues.
  • Gross profit was $3.3 million, or 88% of revenue, compared to $3.3 million, or 89% of revenue, in Q1 F2014 and $3.6 million, or 90% of revenue, in Q4 F2014.
  • Operating Expenses, excluding stock based compensation, depreciation and amortization costs were $2.9 million compared to $3.2 million in Q1 F2014 and $3.2 million in Q4 F2014.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1 was $0.3 million, 9% of revenue, an increase of 19% from $0.1 million, or 3% of revenue, in Q1 F2014 and down from $0.4 million or 10% of revenue, in Q4 F2014.
  • Net loss was $0.1 million compared to a net loss of $0.8 million in Q1 F2014 and net loss of $0.6 million in Q4 F2014.
  • Cash provided by operations was $1.6 million compared to cash provided by operations of $0.2 million in Q1 F2014.
  • Total deferred revenue was $5.5 million up from $4.8 million at March 31, 2014.
  • In May 2014, the Company announced the promotion of Jamie Cappelli to Executive Vice President of Operations and in July 2014, the Company announced the appointment of Ray Payette as Chief Technology Officer. 
  • In July 2014, unveiled its next generation cloud-based EHR – Nightingale EHR (Nexia).
  • In August 2014, the Company announced a commitment for an investment of $3.5 million in the form of a subordinated term loan to fund the sales and marketing programs to capitalize on its next generation product Nexia.

"We are at the tail-end of our transition phase. Nexia, our next generation product, has started to attract the attention of buying organizations and we are very encouraged by the rate of growth of our pipeline," said Sam Chebib, President and CEO. "We have started to shift our investment from product development towards sales and marketing, the result of which will start to become evident in the next few financial periods."

Fiscal 2015 First Quarter Financial Review

The Company's results are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and in Canadian dollars unless otherwise stated.

Revenue for Q1 F2015 was $3.7 million, a decrease of $76,966 from $3.8 million for Q1 F2014.  This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in non-recurring revenues which was partially offset by a 9% increase in recurring revenues.

Recurring Revenue2 for Q1 F2015 was $2.8 million (77% of revenue), an increase of $0.2 million, or 9%, from $2.6 million (69% of revenue) in Q1 F2014.  The increase in Recurring Revenue in Q1 was primarily the result of an increase in revenues from the Company's Nightingale On Demand and NightingaleEHR (Nexia) products.

For Q1 F2015, gross margin was 88% ($3.3 million gross profit) compared to 89% ($3.3 million gross profit) for Q1 F2014. 

Operating expenses for Q1 F2015 decreased 7% to $2.9 million (79% of revenue), excluding charges for stock based compensation and depreciation and amortization, compared to operating expenses of $3.2 million (85% of revenue), excluding charges for stock based compensation and depreciation and amortization, for Q1 F2014.

For Q1 F2015, Adjusted EBITDA was $0.3 million (9% of revenue), compared to $0.1 million (3% of revenue) in Q1 F2014.  

The impact of fluctuations in the rate of exchange between the US Dollar and Canadian Dollar on Q1 F2015 EBITDA were negligible.  The $0.1 million gain from foreign currency in Q1 F2015 is predominantly the result of the re-measurement of the Company's term loans (denominated in US Dollars) into Canadian Dollars.

Included in net loss for Q1 F2015 is a financial gain of $0.03 million.  The financial gain is related to the change in valuation of a derivative asset that is embedded in the Company's Series B convertible debentures.    

For Q1 F2015, net loss was $61,732 compared to a net loss of $0.8 million in Q1 F2014.

Cash and cash equivalents on June 30, 2014 were $0.2 million, a decrease of $0.4 million, or 71%, from March 31, 2014.

At June 30, 2014, total common shares issued and outstanding were 94,758,915.

The financial statements and MD&A will be available at www.nightingalemd.com and filed on www.sedar.com on August 27, 2014.  This press release should be read in conjunction with Nightingale's Consolidated Financial Statements and the accompanying Management Discussion and Analysis for the year ended March 31, 2014.

Non-IFRS Financial Measures
The Company internally measures its performance and results of initiatives through a number of measures that are not recognized under IFRS and may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. 

1.  Adjusted EBITDA
Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure that management believes is a useful measurement to evaluate the performance of the Company. Investors should be cautioned, however, that Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed as an alternative to net earnings as determined in accordance with IFRS. The Company's method of calculating Adjusted EBITDA may differ from the methods used by other companies and, accordingly, it may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before other loss (income), interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, and business acquisition, integration and other costs. Management believes it is useful to exclude these items as they are either non-cash expenses, items that cannot be influenced by management in the short term, or items that do not impact core operating performance, and Management uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting purposes.

The following provides a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to Loss and Comprehensive Loss:

2.  Recurring and Non-Recurring Revenue
The Company has included recurring revenue and non-recurring revenue measurements since it believes that this information is useful to investors to evaluate its performance. Investors should be cautioned, however, that recurring revenue and non-recurring revenue should not be construed as an alternative to revenue as determined in accordance with IFRS.  Recurring Revenue is comprised of utilization fees, hosting, support and maintenance revenue, data management and transcription services and transactional fees.  Non-Recurring Revenue is comprised of revenues generated from sales of perpetual software and systems licenses and related training, data conversion and installation services.
