BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Nov. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq:ADAT), a provider of secure web-based revenue cycle management applications and telehealth products and services for healthcare organizations, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended September 30, 2015. In addition, the company announced that efforts related to its business combination with AEON Clinical Laboratories continue to progress.
Ian Bonnet, Chief Executive Officer of Authentidate, stated, “We continue to work towards completing a definitive agreement with AEON Clinical Laboratories to combine the two companies. Along with our efforts to complete the proposed transaction, we are continuing to work together on a number of customer projects. By combining our technological platform with the complimentary product set and financial strength of AEON, we will be able to provide our collective customers with an expanded product set to support their patients’ healthcare management needs and enable the self-funding of future growth for the combined company.”
“As previously reported, we have also modified our business plan to help the company increase revenues and achieve positive cash flow from operations. We are making steady progress in this regard and we are starting to see the impact of our cost saving activities on our operating results as we reduced our operating loss and net loss for the quarter compared to the prior year period. These savings were offset in part by additional legal, due diligence and related merger expenses and non-cash expenses for debt discount amortization and the change in the warrant liability related to our financing transactions. At the end of October we also completed the relocation of our corporate offices and we are continuing to realign our data center operations which will each result in lower expenses moving forward. We also believe we will achieve additional operating synergies from our proposed business combination and are working on our integration plan.”
Mr. Bonnet concluded, “The AEON combination represents a significant opportunity for us to reach a broader base of customers with a more robust product offering that can make a marked impact on the delivery of healthcare services to a significant number of patients. We look forward to bringing this transaction to a close and we are excited about the future prospects for the combined company.”
As previously reported, the final transaction agreement is subject to material conditions, and there can be no assurance that a definitive agreement will be reached by the parties, or that any agreement will result in the completion of the transaction.
Conference Call Details
Management will schedule a conference call after the completion of a definitive merger agreement with AEON Clinical Laboratories. Details regarding the conference call will be provided at that time.

First Quarter Financial Results
Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 were $398,000 compared to $1.1 million for the prior year period. The decrease in revenues for the quarter is due primarily to lower telehealth equipment sales and service revenues and lower transaction volumes from our hosted software services.
Operating loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 was $1.7 million compared to $2.1 million for the prior year period. The decrease in operating loss for the period is due primarily to lower personnel and consulting expenses from our cost saving activities offset in part by higher merger related expenses.
Net loss for the quarter was $2.1 million, or $0.05 per share, compared to $2.1 million, or $0.06 per share, for the prior year period. These results reflect non-cash expenses for debt discount amortization and the change in the warrant liability which for the most part offset the operating cost savings discussed above.
As of September 30, 2015 cash and cash equivalents were approximately $282,000. Following the end of the quarter, the company added new short-term debt financing resulting in gross proceeds of approximately $450,000.
