iCAD Reports First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

Eleventh Consecutive Quarter of Revenue Growth

Recurring Service Revenue Expands to 70% of Total Revenue in First Quarter

Reiterates 2015 Financial Guidance

NASHUA, N.H., April 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- iCAD, Inc. (Nasdaq:ICAD), an industry-leading provider of advanced image analysis, workflow solutions and radiation therapy for the early identification and treatment of cancer, today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2015.

First Quarter Highlights:

  • Total revenue of $13.2 million, an increase of 55.2% year-over-year
  • Recurring service revenue of $9.3 million, an increase of 114.8% year-over-year
  • Therapy revenue of $8.4 million, an increase of 94.1% year-over-year
  • Gross margin of 70.8%, up from 69.6% in Q1 2014
  • Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA of $2.5 million, or 19.2% of revenue, up from 5.2% in Q1 2014

"We are pleased with our first quarter's performance as we delivered strong revenue growth and adjusted EBITDA margins," said Ken Ferry, Chief Executive Officer. "On the top-line, our business continues to benefit from our transition to providing a full service, subscription-based offering to customers in our skin therapy market. As a result, recurring revenue increased to 70% of total revenue in the quarter as well as nearly 90% of the therapy business. Growth in our cancer detection business was driven by strong 2D mammography upgrade volume and strength in the MRI and breast density categories."

Mr. Ferry continued, "During the quarter we also made excellent progress with several key initiatives, including a robust presence at several medical meetings and continued investments in building the clinical data supporting electronic brachytherapy. We balanced this with prudent expense management, which allowed us to deliver EBITDA margin at the high end of our guided annual range. Overall, we are on track with our growth plans and are reiterating our full year financial guidance for revenues in the range of $55 to $59 million and adjusted EBITDA margin of 16% to 20%."

RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES TO COMPARABLE GAAP MEASURES
(Unaudited, in thousands, except per share amounts)

The following is a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company to describe the Company's financial results determined in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (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 the Company's business operations, investors are reminded to consider these non-GAAP financial 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 financial measures used by other companies, and management may utilize other measures to illustrate performance in the future. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. However, management believes that in order to properly understand the Company's 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/or impact on continuing operations. Management also uses results of operations before such items to evaluate the operating performance of the Company 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 the Company's ongoing business by eliminating certain non-cash expenses and other items that management believes might otherwise make comparisons of the Company's 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 the Company's financial and operational performance and comparing this performance to its peers and competitors.

Management defines "Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA" as the sum of GAAP net income (loss) before provision for taxes, [acquisition-related expenses], total other (income) expense, stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, severance, gain on sale, loss on warrant, amortization of acquired intangibles, patent litigation and recall costs, contingent consideration, indemnification, asset and goodwill impairment charges. Management considers this non-GAAP financial measure to be an important indicator of the Company's operational strength and performance of its business and a good measure of its historical operating trends, in particular the extent to which ongoing operations impact the Company's overall financial performance.

Management defines "Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (loss)" as the sum of GAAP net income (loss) before provision for the gain on sale of asset, severance, transaction, patent litigation and recall costs, contingent consideration, indemnification, asset and goodwill impairment charges. Management considers this non-GAAP financial measure to be an important indicator of the Company's operational strength and performance of its business and a good measure of its historical operating trends, in particular the extent to which ongoing operations impact the Company's overall financial performance.

Management excludes 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:

  • Stock-based compensation expense: excluded as these are non-cash expenses that management does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of the Company's business, and also because the total amount of expense is partially outside of the Company's control as 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 expense is incurred.
  • Amortization of acquired intangibles: acquisition-related expenses are reported at the time acquisition costs are incurred, and purchased intangibles are amortized over a period of several years after the acquisition and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after the acquisition. Accordingly, these items are not considered by management in making operating decisions, and management believes that such expenses do not have a direct correlation to future business operations. Thus, including such charges does not accurately reflect the performance of the Company's ongoing operations for the period in which such charges are incurred.
  • Interest expense: The Company excludes interest expense which includes interest from the facility agreement, interest on settlement obligations and interest on capital leases, from its non GAAP Adjusted EBITDA calculation.
  • Severance relates to costs incurred due to the termination of certain employees. The Company provides compensation to certain employees as an accommodation upon termination of employment without cause. Management believes that excluding severance costs from operating results provides investors with a better means for measuring current Company performance.
  • Loss on sale of assets relates to the loss incurred on the disposal of assets. The Company excludes this non-cash charge as this item is not considered by management in making operating decisions, and management believes that such expenses do not have a direct correlation to future business operations.
  • Loss on extinguishment of debt: relates to the extinguishment of a portion of the $15 million debt facility agreement. It is excluded as this is an expense that management does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of the Company's business.
  • Gain (loss) on warrant: The Company issued warrants in connection with the January 2012 financing and the value changes according to fair value. It is excluded as these are non-cash expenses that management does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of the Company's business, also because the total amount of gain or loss is partially outside of the Company's control as 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 gain or loss is incurred. The warrants were exercised in April 2014.

On occasion in the future, there may be other items, such as significant asset impairments, restructuring charges or significant gains or losses from contingencies that the Company may exclude if it believes that doing so is consistent with the goal of providing useful information to investors and management.
