MTBC Reports Second Quarter 2017 Results, Reaffirms 2017 Guidance

Company Reports 55% Revenue Growth

SOMERSET, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 08/03/17 -- Medical Transcription Billing, Corp. (the "Company" or "MTBC") (NASDAQ: MTBC) (NASDAQ: MTBCP)

Medical Transcription Billing, Corp. (the "Company" or "MTBC") (NASDAQ: MTBC) (NASDAQ: MTBCP), a leading provider of proprietary, cloud-based healthcare IT solutions and services, today announced financial and operational results for first half 2017 and reaffirmed guidance for fiscal year 2017. The Company's management will conduct a conference call later today, Thursday, August 3, 2017, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss these results and management's outlook for future financial and operational performance.

"We are pleased to announce revenue growth of 55% over the first half of 2016, which supports our recent upward adjustment to the Company's full year revenue guidance," said Mahmud Haq, MTBC Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Even more exciting is the fact that our second quarter GAAP net loss improved by 37% and our adjusted EBITDA was $468,000, which is our largest quarterly adjusted EBITDA as a public company. As we have reduced expenses from our 2016 acquisitions, we are seeing significant improvements in our profit margins, and are on track to achieve our guidance of $2.0 - $2.5 million of adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2017."

Three Month Financial Results

Revenues for second quarter 2017 were $7.8 million, an increase of 49% compared to $5.2 million in the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to the MediGain acquisition.

The second quarter 2017 GAAP net loss was $1.7 million, or 22% of revenue, an improvement of $1.0 million compared to a net loss of $2.7 million in first quarter 2017. The GAAP net loss in the second quarter 2017 was largely a result of non-cash amortization and depreciation expenses of $1.5 million.

"The $1.0 million improvement in our GAAP net loss from last quarter was a result of significant cost savings since we acquired MediGain," said Bill Korn, MTBC Chief Financial Officer. "Our direct operating costs were reduced by $1.0 million or 20% quarter-over-quarter, largely driven by eliminating expensive subcontractors and moving work to high-quality, cost-effective offshore employees, and our general & administrative expenses were reduced by $215,000 or 7% quarter-over-quarter due to reduced transaction costs, stock-based compensation expenses and personnel expenses."

The GAAP net loss for second quarter 2017 was $0.20 per share, calculated using the net loss attributable to common shareholders divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income for second quarter 2017 was ($77,000), or ($0.01) per share, compared to the adjusted net income of ($298,000) in the same period last year and ($852,000) in first quarter 2017. Non-GAAP adjusted net income per share is calculated using the end-of-period common shares outstanding.

The second quarter 2017 GAAP operating loss was $1.4 million, or 18% of revenue, which represents an improvement of $1.0 million or 43% from the $2.4 million operating loss in our prior quarter. The GAAP operating loss excludes the provision for income taxes, net interest expense and other income and expenses, which are included in the GAAP net loss.

Non-GAAP adjusted operating income was $149,000, or 2% of revenue. "The second quarter 2017 adjusted operating income represents an improvement of $720,000 from the ($571,000) adjusted operating income in our prior quarter, as a result of significant cost savings," continued Bill Korn. "This is our first quarter of positive non-GAAP adjusted operating income as a public company, which represents a historic milestone for MTBC. Non-GAAP adjusted operating income excludes significant non-cash expenses and integration and transaction costs, such as $1.2 million of amortization of purchased intangible assets, $79,000 of stock-based compensation expense, $163,000 of change in contingent consideration, as well as $92,000 of integration and transaction costs associated with recent acquisitions, and reflects the fact that our business is now at a scale where our revenues exceed our cash operating expenses."

Adjusted EBITDA for second quarter 2017 was $468,000, or 6.0% of revenue, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $14,000, or 0.3% of revenue, in the same period last year. "The second quarter 2017 adjusted EBITDA represents an improvement of $781,000 from the ($313,000) adjusted EBITDA in our prior quarter, reflecting the significant cost savings we have achieved," continued Bill Korn. "Second quarter represents the highest adjusted EBITDA MTBC has achieved as a public company. The negative adjusted EBITDA during fourth quarter 2016 and first quarter 2017 was anticipated due to the MediGain acquisition, as we anticipated that it would take six months to wring out sufficient excess costs to turn the newly acquired business profitable. Since our business now has a higher scale, we are able to spread our fixed expenses over a larger revenue base and generate larger adjusted EBITDA than we ever have before."

"The difference of $2.2 million between adjusted EBITDA and the GAAP net loss in the second quarter of 2017 reflects $1.5 million of non-cash amortization and depreciation expense, $280,000 of net interest expense, a $163,000 increase in our contingent consideration liability, $92,000 of integration and transaction costs related to recent acquisitions, $79,000 of stock-based compensation, and $67,000 of provision for taxes," says Bill Korn. Management believes that our non-GAAP metrics are closer to reflecting our operating cash flow, and we will focus on driving positive adjusted EBITDA and adjusted operating income during the remainder of 2017.

Six Month Financial Results

Revenues for the first half of 2017 were $16.0 million, an increase of 55% compared to $10.3 million in the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to the MediGain acquisition.

The first half of 2017 GAAP net loss was $4.4 million compared to a GAAP net loss of $3.3 million in the same period last year. The GAAP net loss is largely a result of non-cash amortization and depreciation expense of $3.0 million, and increased primarily as a result of the MediGain acquisition.

Depreciation and amortization increased by $554,000 or 23%, primarily due to the MediGain acquisition. The increase in net loss is also partly due to restructuring charges of $276,000 recorded during the first quarter 2017. We have now closed our offices in Poland and Bangalore, India and shifted the work to our teams in Pakistan and Sri Lanka, to gain operating efficiencies. This is partially offset by our interest expense increasing from $310,000 to $565,000, due to higher debt balances.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first half of 2017 was $154,000, or 1.0% of revenue, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $80,000, or 0.8% of revenue, in the same period last year.

Cash Balance and Liquidity

As of June 30, 2017, the Company had $5.8 million in cash and a working capital deficiency of approximately $4.1 million.

The Company raised gross proceeds of $2.3 million from a registered direct offering of its common stock priced at-the-market on May 10, 2017. In connection with the offering, MTBC issued 1,000,000 registered shares of common stock to a healthcare institutional investor at a purchase price of $2.30 per share. Concurrently in a private placement, MTBC issued warrants to purchase up to 2,000,000 shares of its common stock, with an exercise price of $5.00 per share, which are exercisable through May 15, 2018, and would result in potential gross proceeds of up to $10 million if exercised. The shares which could be issued by the exercise of these warrants have been registered.

In addition, the Company raised gross proceeds of $7.4 million from the sale of approximately 295,000 additional shares of its non-convertible Series A Preferred Stock on June 23, 2017. These shares trade on the Nasdaq Capital Market under the ticker MTBCP, and pay monthly cash dividends at the rate of 11% per annum.

The Company used one-third of net proceeds of the two offerings, or $2.8 million, to reduce its debt outstanding with Opus Bank. As of June 30, 2017, there was an outstanding balance of $5.2 million due to Opus Bank, which will mature in September 2018. The Company also owes Prudential Insurance $5 million, the remainder of the purchase price from its acquisition of MediGain. The Company is currently negotiating a payment plan with Prudential and Opus Bank, who, as senior secured lender, must approve any payment the Company wishes to make to Prudential.

2017 Full Year Guidance

MTBC is reaffirming its following forward-looking guidance for revenue and adjusted EBITDA for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2017:

For the Fiscal Year Ending December 31, 2017
Forward-Looking Guidance
Revenue $31 - $32 million
Adjusted EBITDA $2.0 - $2.5 million

The Company is reaffirming its guidance for full year 2017 revenue which was recently revised upward from a range of approximately $30 to $31 million to a range of approximately $31 to $32 million, which represents growth of 27% to 31% over 2016 revenue. We expect adjusted EBITDA to be $2.0 to $2.5 million for full year 2017, anticipating that adjusted EBITDA in future quarters of 2017 will be positive and reflect growth.

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
TO COMPARABLE GAAP MEASURES (UNAUDITED)

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.

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 uses adjusted EBITDA, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, and non-GAAP adjusted net income to provide an understanding of aspects of operating results before the impact of investing and financing charges and income taxes. Adjusted EBITDA may be useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance and liquidity because this measure excludes non-cash expenses as well as expenses pertaining to investing or financing transactions. Management defines "adjusted EBITDA" as the sum of GAAP net income (loss) before provision for (benefit from) income taxes, net interest expense, other (income) expense, stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, amortization of purchased intangible assets, integration costs, transaction costs, and changes in contingent consideration.

Management defines "non-GAAP adjusted operating income" as the sum of GAAP operating income (loss) before stock-based compensation expense, amortization of purchased intangible assets, transaction costs, integration costs, and changes in contingent consideration, and "non-GAAP adjusted operating margin" as non-GAAP adjusted operating income divided by net 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 (income) expense, transaction costs, integration costs, changes in contingent consideration, any tax impact related to these preceding items and income tax expense related to goodwill, and "non-GAAP adjusted net income per share" as non-GAAP adjusted net income divided by common shares outstanding at the end of the period, including the shares which were issued but are subject to forfeiture and 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 -- net. Other expense is excluded because foreign currency gains and losses, whether realized or unrealized, and other non-operating expenses are 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 unrelated to our performance during the period in which the gains and losses are recorded.

Stock-based compensation expense. Stock-based compensation expense is excluded because this is primarily 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. Stock-based compensation expense includes customer incentives paid in stock and related fees, as well as cash-settled awards based on changes in the stock price.

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.

Transaction costs. Transaction costs are upfront costs related to acquisitions and related transactions, such as brokerage fees, pre-acquisition accounting costs and legal fees, and other upfront costs related to specific transactions. 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.

Integration costs. Integration costs are severance payments for certain employees relating to our acquisitions and exit costs related to terminating leases and other contractual agreements, and restructuring charges arising from discontinued operations. Accordingly, 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 price as well as changes in the forecasted revenues of the acquired businesses.

Tax expense related to goodwill. Income tax expense resulting from the amortization of goodwill related to our acquisitions represents a charge to record the tax expense resulting from amortizing goodwill over 15 years for tax purposes. Goodwill is not amortized for GAAP reporting. This expense is not anticipated to result in a cash payment.
