Allscripts Announces Fourth Quarter 2014 and Full-Year Results

  • Fourth quarter bookings of $244 million and $923 million for the full year
  • 2014 full-year adjusted EBITDA grows 11 percent and free cash flow improves by over $70 million for the year
  • Provides 2015 outlook for revenue, adjusted EBITDA and earnings per share

CHICAGO, Feb. 26, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:MDRX) (Allscripts) announced its financial results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2014.

Fourth Quarter and Full Year Bookings Highlights:

Bookings(1) in the fourth quarter were $244 million compared with $274 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, an 11% decline. Fourth quarter 2014 bookings reflect double-digit growth in ambulatory solutions, managed IT services, and international sales compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. Partially offsetting this growth was a decline in client demand for patient portal solutions, a requirement for meeting Meaningful Use 2 (MU2). This demand positively impacted bookings results during the second half of 2013 as well as the first half of 2014.

On a sequential basis, and consistent with historical seasonal trends, bookings grew 10 percent in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared with $223 million in the third quarter of 2014. Population Health Management(2) bookings grew compared with the third quarter of 2014 and contributed materially to overall bookings results for the fourth quarter and all of 2014. Fourth quarter Software-as-a-Service-based or subscription-based (collectively, SaaS) bookings were 48 percent of total bookings, compared with 44 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013 and 42 percent in the third quarter of 2014.

For the full year, bookings were $923 million, a 2 percent increase over 2013. SaaS bookings constituted 44 percent of total bookings compared with 36 percent in 2013.

Contract revenue backlog as of December 31, 2014 totaled $3.4 billion, which was comparable with the prior-year amount.

Paul M. Black, President and Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts, stated: "Allscripts fourth quarter non-GAAP EPS increased despite a lack of revenue growth in the quarter. The Company also generated strong operating cash flow in the fourth quarter, which drove a significant improvement in free cash flow for 2014 compared with 2013. In addition, the investments we have made to improve our solutions are driving higher client satisfaction and positioning Allscripts for long-term growth.

"We are optimistic about the sustainability of several business trends creating a foundation of stability and a trajectory for growth and continued innovation. We achieved a healthy mix of add-on sales across Allscripts clients in 2014, reflecting the nearly half a billion dollars we have spent on research and development over the last two years. In addition, our improved client execution is driving an increasing interest in and recognition of Allscripts advanced, OPEN technology. As a result, we continue to add new clients globally and across the continuum of care. We also are adding new services offerings and positioning Allscripts as the preferred partner for all healthcare providers to transition, both financially and clinically, to value-based care."

Fourth Quarter 2014 Highlights

Revenue totaled $343 million and $341 million on a non-GAAP and GAAP basis, respectively, a decline of 3 percent on both a non-GAAP and GAAP basis, compared with $354 million and $351 million, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2013. Recurring revenue increased $8 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. This includes SaaS revenue, which grew 9 percent compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. Non-recurring revenue, consisting of systems sales and professional services revenue, declined $18 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2013.

Fourth quarter 2014 gross margin was 43.9 percent on a non-GAAP basis and 40.0 percent on a GAAP basis, compared with 44.4 percent and 39.4 percent, respectively, in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Total operating expenses declined 9 percent on a non-GAAP basis and 19 percent on a GAAP basis in the fourth quarter of 2014 compared with the fourth quarter of 2013. The decline in operating expenses reflects initiatives to decrease corporate SG&A expenses, streamline business functions, and leverage prior investments in research and development.

Adjusted EBITDA increased 8 percent to $52 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared with $49 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.

On a non-GAAP basis, Allscripts effective tax rate was 35 percent in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared with 32 percent in the fourth quarter of 2013. On a GAAP basis, Allscripts recorded an income tax benefit of approximately $4 million in the fourth quarter of 2014, compared with an income tax benefit of $14 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Fourth quarter 2014 non-GAAP net income totaled $17 million compared with $14 million in the fourth quarter of 2013. Fourth quarter 2014 GAAP net loss totaled $2 million compared with a net loss of $21 million in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Fourth quarter 2014 non-GAAP earnings per share were $0.09 compared with $0.08 in the fourth quarter of 2013. Fourth quarter 2014 GAAP loss per share was $0.01 compared with a loss per share of $0.12 in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Full Year Financial Highlights:

For the full year 2014, revenue totaled $1.39 billion and $1.38 billion on a non-GAAP and GAAP basis, respectively, compared with $1.38 billion and $1.37 billion, respectively, in 2013. 2014 revenue performance was impacted, in part, by a decline of approximately $28 million of predominantly low-margin, non-recurring revenue in 2014, including lower hardware revenue resulting from Allscripts ongoing transition to a predominantly SaaS-based business model.

For the full year 2014, Allscripts recurring revenue totaled 77 percent of total revenue compared with 74 percent in 2013. This increase was driven in part by a 13 percent increase in SaaS revenue in 2014 compared with 2013.

For 2014, operating expenses declined 5 percent on a non-GAAP basis and 11 percent on a GAAP basis compared with 2013.

For 2014, Adjusted EBITDA increased 11 percent to $199 million, compared with $180 million in 2013.

On a non-GAAP basis, Allscripts effective tax rate was 35 percent in 2014, compared with 28 percent in 2013. On a GAAP basis, Allscripts recorded an income tax benefit of approximately $2 million in 2014, compared with an income tax benefit of $44 million in 2013.

For the full year 2014, non-GAAP net income totaled $56 million compared with $48 million in 2013. 2014 GAAP net loss totaled $67 million compared with a net loss of $104 million in 2013.

For the full year 2014, non-GAAP earnings per share were $0.31 compared with $0.27 in 2013 and GAAP loss per share was $0.37 compared with a loss per share of $0.59 in 2013.

  • Revenue between $1.43 billion and $1.46 billion.
  • Adjusted EBITDA between $230 million and $250 million.

  • Non-GAAP operating income consists of GAAP operating income/(loss) as reported and adds back deferred revenue and other adjustments booked for GAAP purposes and excludes acquisition-related amortization, stock-based compensation expense, non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs, and non-cash asset impairment charges.
  • Non-GAAP net income consists of GAAP net income/(loss) as reported, and adds back deferred revenue and other adjustments, acquisition-related amortization, stock-based compensation expense, non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs, non-cash charges to interest expense and other, and non-cash asset impairment charges, in each case net of any related tax effects. Non-GAAP net income also includes a tax rate alignment adjustment.
  • Non-GAAP effective income tax rate is based on non-GAAP pre-tax earnings and consists of the statutory federal income rate, Allscripts effective state income tax rate, and adjustments for permanent differences.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure and consists of GAAP net income (loss) as reported and adjusts for: tax provision (benefit); interest expense and other income, net; stock-based compensation expense; depreciation and amortization; deferred revenue and other adjustments; non-recurring and transaction-related costs; and non-cash asset impairment charges.

Deferred Revenue and Other Adjustments. Deferred revenue and other adjustments includes acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustments, which reflect the fair value adjustments to deferred revenues acquired in business acquisitions. The fair value of deferred revenue represents an amount equivalent to the estimated cost plus an appropriate profit margin, to perform services related to the acquiree's software and product support, which assumes a legal obligation to do so, based on the deferred revenue balances as of the acquisition date. Also included are adjustments for the vesting of a warrant issued to a commercial partner and the effects of straight-lining contractual pricing adjustments over the performance period. Allscripts adds back deferred revenue and other adjustments for its non-GAAP financial measures because it believes the inclusion of this amount directly correlates to the underlying performance of Allscripts operations.

Acquisition-Related Amortization. Acquisition-related amortization expense is a non-cash expense arising primarily from the acquisition of intangible assets in connection with acquisitions or investments. Allscripts excludes acquisition-related amortization expense from non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income because it believes (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of Allscripts business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods as a result of new acquisitions and full amortization of previously acquired intangible assets. Investors should note that the use of these intangible assets contributed to revenue in the periods presented and will contribute to future revenue generation, and the related amortization expense will recur in future periods.

Stock-Based Compensation Expense. Stock-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense arising from the grant of stock-based awards to employees. Allscripts excludes stock-based compensation expense from non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and Adjusted EBITDA because it believes (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of Allscripts business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods as a result of the timing of grants of new stock-based awards, including grants in connection with acquisitions. Investors should note that stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to employees whose efforts contributed to the operating results in the periods presented and are expected to contribute to operating results in future periods and such expense will recur in future periods.

Non-Recurring Expenses and Transaction-Related Costs. Non-recurring expenses relate to certain severance, product consolidation, legal proceedings, consulting, and other charges incurred in connection with activities that are considered one-time. Transaction-related costs include deferred compensation expenses incurred in connection with the acquisition of dbMotion, Ltd.

Allscripts excludes non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs from non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and Adjusted EBITDA because it believes (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of Allscripts business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods.

Non-Cash Charges to Interest Expense and Other. Non-cash charges to interest expense and other includes non-cash amortization of the fair value of the cash conversion option embedded in the 1.25 percent Cash Convertible Notes issued by Allscripts during the second quarter of 2013. Also included in this amount are non-cash adjustments to reflect changes in the fair value of derivative financial instruments related to the 1.25 percent Cash Convertible Notes that do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment.

Non-Cash Asset Impairment Charges. Asset impairment charges relate primarily to product consolidation activities.

Tax Rate Alignment. Tax adjustment aligns the applicable period's effective tax rate to the expected annual non-GAAP effective tax rate. Accordingly, the non-GAAP effective tax rate for the three months and year ended December 31, 2014 excludes the impact of deferred tax asset valuation allowance adjustments recorded in the fourth quarter.

Management also believes that non-GAAP revenue, gross profit, SG&A, operating expense, operating income, net income and non-GAAP net income on a per share basis, and Adjusted EBITDA, provide useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the underlying performance of Allscripts business operations. Acquisition accounting adjustments made in accordance with GAAP can make it difficult to make meaningful comparisons of the underlying operations of the business without considering the non-GAAP adjustments provided and discussed herein. Management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting, as it believes that these measures are indicative of core operating results. In addition, management may use non-GAAP revenue, SG&A, operating expense, operating income, net income and/or Adjusted EBITDA to measure achievement under Allscripts stock and cash incentive compensation plans. Note, however, that non-GAAP revenue, gross profit, operating income and net income and non-GAAP net income on a per share basis and Adjusted EBITDA are performance measures only, and they do not provide any measure of cash flow or liquidity. Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Allscripts results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures with GAAP financial measures contained within the attached condensed consolidated financial statements.

Free Cash Flow. Free cash flow is calculated based on operating cash flow in the applicable period, net of capital expenditures and capitalized software costs. For 2014, Allscripts free cash flow equaled $36 million, consisting of operating cash flow of $103 million minus $26 million of capital expenditures and $41 million of capitalized software development costs.
