MTBC Reports First Quarter 2015 Results

Q1 2015 Financial Results

  • 139% Revenue Growth over First Quarter 2014
  • GAAP Net Loss of $1.2 million, or $0.12 per Share
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income of ($854,000), or $(0.08) per Share

SOMERSET, N.J., May 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Transcription Billing, Corp. (Nasdaq:MTBC), a leading provider of proprietary, web-based electronic health records, practice management and mHealth solutions, today announced financial and operational results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2015.

  • Total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $6.1 million, compared to $2.6 million in the same period last year, an increase of 139%.

"We are pleased with our first quarter results, which are in line with our expectations, and demonstrate that the integration and conversion to our platform is progressing well," said Mahmud Haq, MTBC's chairman and chief executive officer.

  • For the three months ended March 31, 2015, GAAP Net Loss was $1.2 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to GAAP Net Loss of $384,000, or $0.08 per share, in the same period last year.
  • For the three months ended March 31, 2015, non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income was ($854,000), or $(0.08) per share, compared to non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income of $83,000, or $0.02 per share, in the same period last year.
  • For the three months ended March 31, 2015, Adjusted EBITDA was ($710,000), or (11.6%) of revenue, compared to Adjusted EBITDA of ($2,000), or (0.1%) of revenue, in the same period last year.

"Our first quarter results represent the final quarter where we had significant overlap in expenses, paying for new employees offshore while retaining many employees from the businesses we acquired. As this overlap continues to diminish, we believe that the true power of our business model will become even more apparent. We are making good progress towards becoming cashflow and EBITDA positive," continued Mahmud Haq.

"The ($710,000) Adjusted EBITDA in the quarter is primarily due to two factors: seasonality and post-acquisition ramp-up costs. First quarter revenue for each practice is normally lower than other quarters, because our fee structure is generally based upon a percentage of the money our doctors collect, and insurance payments are lower in Q1 because many health insurance plans have an annual deductible. Secondly, we spent approximately $500,000 on payroll and benefits during the quarter for employees who are no longer with us, as our U.S. headcount decreased from 205 employees on January 1 to 104 employees on March 31. That reduced cost will drop to our bottom line starting in the second quarter," said Bill Korn.

"On a GAAP basis, we had a $1.2 million loss in the first quarter. The $456,000 difference between Adjusted EBITDA and the GAAP loss reflects $1.2 million of non-cash amortization and depreciation expense, $127,000 of stock-based compensation, $35,000 of net interest expense, and $46,000 of foreign currency gains, offset by a $696,000 decrease in the value of the contingent consideration liability and a gain of $133,000 related to CastleRock's forfeiture of 53,797 shares of the Company's common stock," continued Bill Korn.

"As a result of leveraging our proprietary technology and processes, renegotiated lease terms, and our strategic rightsizing, we look forward to experiencing additional reductions in our expenses during the second and third quarters of 2015," said Stephen Snyder, MTBC's president. "Moreover, we're very pleased to have officially launched our European operations, MTBC-Europe Sp. z o.o., and these team members, working alongside of our U.S. and Asia based team members, will support our continued growth," continued Stephen Snyder.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

TO COMPARABLE GAAP MEASURES

The following is a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used by us to describe our financial results determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors regarding the underlying performance of our business operations, investors are reminded to consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial performance measures prepared 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 our results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Adjusted EBITDA

Set forth below is a reconciliation of our "Adjusted EBITDA" and "Adjusted EBITDA Margin," which represents Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue.

  Quarter ended March 31,
  2015 2014
Net Revenue  $ 6,137,859  $ 2,573,477
     
GAAP net loss  $ (1,165,910)  $ (383,672)
     
Provision (benefit) for income taxes  9,624  (187,863)
Net interest expense  35,272  49,724
Other (income) expense-net  (46,121)  199,885
Stock-based compensation expense  126,849  --

Adjusted EBITDA Margin (11.6%) (0.1%)
     

Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income

Set forth below is a reconciliation of our "Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income" and "Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income per Share."

  Quarter ended March 31,
  2015 2014
GAAP net loss  $ (1,165,910)  $ (383,672)
     
Other (income) expense-net  (46,121)  199,885
Stock-based compensation expense  126,849  -- 
Amortization of purchased intangible assets  1,060,011  216,590
Integration and transaction costs  --   50,156
Change in contingent consideration  (828,762)  -- 
Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income  $ (853,933)  $ 82,959
     
End-of-period shares  10,945,336  5,101,770
     
Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income per Share  $ (0.08)  $ 0.02
     

For purposes of determining non-GAAP adjusted net income per share, the Company used the number of common shares outstanding at the end of the period on March 31, 2015 and 2014 including the shares which were issued but are considered contingent consideration, in order to provide insight into results considering the total number of shares which were issued at the time of the acquisitions. No tax effect has been provided as the Company has sufficient carryforward losses to offset the applicable taxes.

  Quarter ended March 31,
  2015 2014
GAAP net loss per diluted share  $ (0.12)  $ (0.08)
     
GAAP net loss per end-of-period share  (0.11)  (0.08)

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP. However, management believes that, in order to properly understand our short-term and long-term financial and operational trends, investors may wish to consider the impact of certain non-cash or non-recurring items, when used as a supplement to financial performance measures in accordance with GAAP. These items result from facts and circumstances that vary in frequency and impact on continuing operations. Management also uses results of operations before such items to evaluate the operating performance of MTBC and compare it against past periods, make operating decisions, and serve as a basis for strategic planning. These non-GAAP financial measures provide management with additional means to understand and evaluate the operating results and trends in our ongoing business by eliminating certain non-cash expenses and other items that management believes might otherwise make comparisons of our ongoing business with prior periods more difficult, obscure trends in ongoing operations, or reduce management's ability to make useful forecasts. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide additional means of evaluating period-over-period operating performance. In addition, management understands that some investors and financial analysts find this information helpful in analyzing our financial and operational performance and comparing this performance to our peers and competitors.

Management defines "Adjusted EBITDA" as the sum of GAAP net income (loss) before provision for (benefit from) income taxes, net interest expense, other expense (income), stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, amortization of purchased intangible assets, integration and transaction costs, and changes in contingent consideration, and defines "Adjusted EBITDA Margin" as Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue.

Management defines "non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income" as the sum of GAAP net income (loss) before stock-based compensation expense, amortization of purchased intangible assets, other expense (income), integration and transaction costs, changes in contingent consideration, and any tax impact related to these preceding items, and "non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income per Share" as non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income divided by total shares outstanding at the end of the period, including the shares which are considered contingent consideration. Management considers all of these non-GAAP financial measures to be important indicators of our operational strength and performance of our business and a good measure of our historical operating trends, in particular the extent to which ongoing operations impact our overall financial performance.

In addition to items routinely excluded from non-GAAP EBITDA, management excludes or adjusts each of the items identified below from the applicable non-GAAP financial measure referenced above for the reasons set forth with respect to that excluded item:

Other expense (income) - net. Other expense (income) is excluded because foreign currency gains and losses, whether realized or unrealized, and other non-operating expenses are non-cash expenditures that management does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of our business, and also because the total amount of the expense is partially outside of our control. Foreign currency gains and losses are based on global market factors which are be unrelated to our performance during the period in which the gains and losses are realized.

Stock-based compensation expense. Stock-based compensation is excluded because this is a non-cash expenditure that management does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of our business, and also because the total amount of the expenditure is partially outside of our control because it is based on factors such as stock price, volatility, and interest rates, which may be unrelated to our performance during the period in which the expenses are incurred.

Amortization of purchased intangible assets. Purchased intangible assets are amortized over their estimated useful lives and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after the acquisition. Accordingly, this item is not considered by management in making operating decisions. Management does not believe such charges accurately reflect the performance of our ongoing operations for the period in which such charges are incurred.

Integration and transaction costs. Integration costs are the severance payments for certain employees relating to the acquisitions, and transaction costs are upfront costs related to acquisitions and related transactions, such as brokerage fees, pre-acquisition accounting costs and legal fees, and certain acquisition accounting impacts. Management believes that such expenses do not have a direct correlation to future business operations, and therefore, these costs are not considered by management in making operating decisions. Management does not believe such charges accurately reflect the performance of our ongoing operations for the period in which such charges are incurred.

Changes in contingent consideration. Contingent consideration represents the amount payable to the sellers of the acquired businesses based on the achievement of defined performance measures contained in the purchase agreements. Contingent consideration is adjusted to fair value at the end of each reporting period, and changes arise from changes in MTBC's stock prices as well as changes in the forecasted revenues of the acquired businesses.
