Streamline Health® Solutions Reports Q1 Results
Jun 07, 2011 (04:06 PM EDT)


CINCINNATI, June 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: STRM) today announced financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2011, ended April 30, 2011.

Highlights for the quarter included:

  • Total revenues increased by 17% as compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2010;
  • Professional services revenues improved by 53% over the prior comparable quarter;
  • Software as a service (SaaS) revenues for the quarter increased 9% over the prior comparable quarter;
  • New bookings for the quarter, excluding maintenance revenue, exceeded $700,000;
  • Backlog at quarter end was $17.7 million.

Revenues for the first quarter totaled $4.1 million, compared to $3.5 million in the prior year first quarter, which benefitted from improved professional services revenues over the prior comparable quarter as a result of progress on implementations of systems and other related services sold in prior quarters. Professional services revenues improved by $348,000 or 53% over the prior comparable period.  

Increases in revenues for the first quarter were also aided by increases in recurring revenues from maintenance contracts and SaaS subscriptions. Recurring revenues from maintenance contracts improved by 10% or $192,000 over the prior comparable first quarter. The increase is due to the continued revenue recognition from backlog, and the incremental maintenance revenues from systems sold in prior quarters for which maintenance periods commenced subsequent to the close of the first quarter of 2010.  SaaS revenues increased by $75,000 or 9% over the prior comparable quarter due to one large customer subscription sold in fiscal 2010 which reached go-live status.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 were $4.4 million compared with $4.7 million in the comparable prior year quarter.  This decrease was the result of decreased capitalized software amortization due to older assets becoming fully amortized subsequent to the end of the first quarter of fiscal 2010. In addition, cost saving measures were implemented to reduce costs and create better efficiency in the organization going forward, that were partially offset by increased stock-based compensation expenses, an increase to the allowance for doubtful accounts, and accrued expenses for annual bonus and severance costs.

As a result, the Company recorded a net loss for the first quarter ended April 30, 2011 of $281,000, or $0.03 per fully diluted share, compared with net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.13 per fully diluted share, for the prior year comparable quarter. Adjusted EBITDA* (a non-GAAP measure) for the quarter ended April 30, 2011 was $630,000, or $0.06 per fully diluted common share (adjusted), compared to ($225,000), or ($0.03) per fully diluted common share (adjusted) in the comparable prior quarter. A reconciliation table is provided below.

New bookings for the first quarter, excluding maintenance services, were in excess of $790,000, primarily consisting of professional services and third-party hardware and software.

Backlog at April 30, 2011 was $17.7 million, compared with $18.6 million at April 30, 2010 and $17.6 million at January 31, 2011.  The decrease in current backlog was impacted by the recognition of revenue for SaaS and maintenance contracts that were in the prior backlog totals, and offset by new maintenance contracts from software sold in the quarters subsequent to April 30, 2010 and January 31, 2011.

Robert E. Watson, president and chief executive officer of Streamline Health, commented, "We are pleased with the results of the first quarter of fiscal 2011. With increased revenues and a strong focus on managing operating expenses we were able to substantially reduce our net loss versus the comparable quarter last year, and adjusted EBITDA (a non-GAAP measure) for the quarter was $630,000, or $0.06 per share, compared to ($225,000), or ($0.03) per share in the comparable prior quarter of fiscal 2010. We expect that financial results in the coming quarters will more fully reflect the impact of the expense reductions that we are in the process of implementing. We believe that substantial progress has been made in repositioning the Company for improved financial results in fiscal 2011 and beyond."

* Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Streamline Health reports its financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). Streamline Health's management also evaluates and makes operating decisions using various other measures. One such measure is adjusted EBITDA, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Streamline Health's management believes that these measures provide useful supplemental information regarding the performance of Streamline Health's business operations.

Streamline Health defines "adjusted EBITDA" as net earnings (loss) plus interest expense, tax expense, depreciation and amortization expense of tangible and intangible assets, and stock-based compensation expense.  A table illustrating this measure is included in this publication.

STREAMLINE HEALTH SOLUTIONS, INC.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

(Unaudited)

Table C

This press release contains a non-GAAP financial measure under the rules of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for adjusted EBITDA. This non-GAAP information supplements and is not intended to represent a measure of performance in accordance with disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles. Non-GAAP financial measures are used internally to manage the business, such as in establishing an annual operating budget. Non-GAAP financial measures are used by Streamline Health's management in its operating and financial decision-making because management believes these measures reflect ongoing business in a manner that allows meaningful period-to-period comparisons. Accordingly, the Company believes it is useful for investors and others to review both GAAP and non-GAAP measures in order to (a) understand and evaluate current operating performance and future prospects in the same manner as management does and (b) compare in a consistent manner the company's current financial results with past financial results. The primary limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures are that these measures may not be directly comparable to the amounts reported by other companies and they do not include all items of income and expense that affect operations. The Company's management compensates for these limitations by considering the company's financial results and outlook as determined in accordance with GAAP and by providing a detailed reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures in the tables attached to this press release.
