Authentidate Holding Corp. Reports Fiscal 2011 First Quarter Financial Results
Nov 11, 2010 (03:11 PM EST)
BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Nov. 11, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq: ADAT), a worldwide provider of secure health information exchange, workflow management services and telehealth solutions, today announced financial results for the fiscal 2011 first quarter ended September 30, 2010.
Selected highlights for the quarter include:
Ben Benjamin, President of Authentidate, stated, "We improved our operating results for the first quarter as U.S. revenues increased and we continued to manage our operating costs which offset the decrease in revenues from our German operations related primarily to contract timing. As you may know, our German revenues fluctuate from quarter to quarter and we had a particularly strong first quarter last year. Although we are still facing a tough economic environment, we believe we are well positioned to benefit from healthcare industry trends, government reforms and the expected rebound in the economy. We are seeing an increase in customer interest in our solutions and believe we have laid a solid foundation for growth during fiscal 2011. In addition, we recently strengthened our balance sheet with net proceeds of approximately $4.5 million from the sale of our securities." Mr. Benjamin continued, "While no assurances can be given, we believe we will have sufficient working capital to fund our operations for at least the next twelve months as we focus on driving revenue growth for our Inscrybe® Healthcare, hospital discharge and ExpressMD products and services."
Total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2010 was approximately $1.4 million compared to $2.0 million for the same period last year. These results reflect an increase of approximately 29% in U.S. revenues from increases in transaction volumes and new customer projects which was offset by a decrease in revenues from our German operations due primarily to the timing of certain contract awards and project implementations and, to a lesser extent, a shift to more transaction-based software-as-a-service projects. Compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010, total revenue decreased approximately 20% reflecting the same trends as the first quarter.
Net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 was approximately $1.6 million, or $0.04 per share, compared to $2.1 million, or $0.06 per share, for the prior year period. The decrease in net loss for the period reflects higher U.S. revenues, lower expenses from our cost management activities and a gain of approximately $0.35 million on the sale of certain non-core assets.
As of September 30, 2010, the company's cash and cash equivalents, and marketable securities totaled approximately $1.7 million and deferred revenue totaled approximately $1.1 million. Additionally, in October we completed a private placement of company securities and received net proceeds of approximately $4.5 million.
