Allscripts announces first quarter 2016 results

  • Record first quarter bookings of $252 million
  • Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow grow in excess of 20 percent year-over-year
  • Non-GAAP EPS of $0.13 and GAAP EPS of $0.01

CHICAGO, May 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ:MDRX) (Allscripts) announced its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

First Quarter Business Highlights

  • Allscripts announced a transaction in March to create a joint venture that merges Netsmart Technologies, Inc. (Netsmart) with the Allscripts Homecare™ business. This joint venture establishes Netsmart as the largest human services and post-acute technology provider in healthcare. The transaction closed April 19, 2016.
  • Black Book Rankings™ named the Sunrise platform as the top overall inpatient EHR for large hospitals and academic medical centers for the third consecutive year.
  • University Hospitals (UH) significantly expanded and extended its commitment to Allscripts through 2024 to enhance patient care and improve population health management. UH will install Allscripts Sunrise clinical platform in five hospitals it has acquired in recent years and will add additional Sunrise modules in nine hospitals that currently use the platform.
  • Allscripts announced an expanded relationship with Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust to provide CareInMotion™, Allscripts population health management platform, which will help the organization make the transition to a new model of integrated care. Salford Royal is the first UK client to select CareInMotion’s dbMotion™ solution.

First Quarter Bookings Highlights

Bookings(1) were $252 million in the first quarter 2016, a record level for the first quarter of the year. This result compares with $236 million in the first quarter of 2015, a 7 percent increase. Bookings growth was driven by increased sales within the company’s client base for managed information technology services including outsourcing and hosting, revenue cycle management and population health services. In addition, multiple clients signed agreements to expand their use of core electronic health record (EHR) platforms such as Allscripts Sunrise™ and Allscripts TouchWorks™ EHR. As a result, bookings increased year-over-year within the acute and ambulatory markets.

Forty-four percent of first-quarter bookings related to software delivery, while the remaining 56 percent were reflected in client services. This compares with 63 and 37 percent of bookings attributable to these revenue categories, respectively, in the first quarter of 2015. Bookings mix between software and services can fluctuate quarter-to-quarter based on client buying patterns.

Contract revenue backlog as of March 31, 2016, totaled $3.65 billion, flat compared to the prior quarter-end amount.

Paul M. Black, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts, said, “Allscripts is off to a strong start for the year, executing a fifth consecutive quarter of record bookings. Additionally, all key financial metrics grew compared to the first quarter of 2015. Our financial position continually strengthens as we deliver innovative, high-value solutions to the market. As a result, clients are expanding the depth and breadth of their commitment to Allscripts as a critical long-term strategic partner in delivering world-class health services.”

First Quarter Financial Highlights

First quarter 2016 revenue totaled $346 million, an increase of three percent year-over-year.

Software delivery, support and maintenance revenue totaled $229.2 million in the first quarter of 2016, a slight increase compared with the first quarter of 2015. Software delivery, support and maintenance revenue consists of all software, hardware, subscription, and transaction-related revenue as well as support and maintenance.

Client services revenue totaled $116.4 million in the first quarter of 2016, up nine percent compared with the first quarter of 2015. Client services revenue consists of recurring managed services and other project-based client services revenue.

Recurring revenue, consisting of subscriptions, recurring transactions, support and maintenance and recurring managed services, increased 4 percent compared with the first quarter of 2015. Non-recurring revenue, comprised of systems sales and other project-based client services revenue, was flat, compared with the first quarter of 2015, an improvement from year-over-year declines in recent quarters.

Gross margin in the first quarter of 2016 was 46.9 percent on a non-GAAP basis and 44.0 percent on a GAAP basis, compared with 42.3 percent and 38.8 percent, respectively, in the first quarter of 2015.

Operating expenses, consisting of selling, general and administrative (SG&A), and research and development (R&D) expenses, increased four percent on a non-GAAP basis and increased two percent on a GAAP basis in the first quarter of 2016 compared with the first quarter of 2015. Allscripts first-quarter non-GAAP SG&A increased six percent from the year ago period, primarily due to timing of marketing spend and incentive compensation expenses. Non-GAAP operating expenses also exclude $3.7 million of transaction–related expenses associated with the Netsmart joint venture announced in March.

Adjusted EBITDA increased to $62 million in the first quarter of 2016, a 23 percent increase compared with the first quarter of 2015. Growth in Adjusted EBITDA reflects revenue growth and gross margin expansion in the quarter.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to Allscripts stockholders in the first quarter of 2016 totaled $25 million, a 68 percent increase compared with the first quarter of 2015. GAAP net income attributable to Allscripts stockholders in the first quarter 2016 totaled $2 million compared with a net loss of $10 million in the first quarter of 2015.

Non-GAAP earnings per share in the first quarter of 2016 were $0.13, compared with $0.08, an increase of 63 percent compared with the first quarter of 2015. GAAP earnings per share were $0.01 compared with a loss per share of $0.06 in the first quarter of 2015.

Cash flow from operations in the first quarter of 2016 totaled $76 million compared with $59 million in the first quarter of 2015. Free cash flow in the first quarter of 2016 totaled $53 million, a 23 percent increase compared to the first quarter of 2015.

During the first quarter of 2016, Allscripts repurchased 2.9 million shares of common stock for $37.5 million pursuant to its previously announced stock repurchase program. Shares were repurchased at an average price of $12.70 per share. In November 2015, Allscripts Board of Directors authorized a stock repurchase program for up to $150 million through December 31, 2018. As of March 31, 2016, there was approximately $112.5 million remaining under the current authorization.

Mr. Black continued, “Looking ahead, we continue to make significant investments to enhance Allscripts solutions portfolio, such as the recently formed joint venture with Netsmart. Continuous regulatory change and a permanent shift in reimbursement paradigms that reward value over volume will create additional demand for our services. We also continue to invest in Open technology, precision medicine and consumer strategies, which together will create significant opportunities for the company.”

2016 Financial Guidance

Allscripts contributed 100% of its Homecare business as partial consideration for the formation of the Netsmart joint venture, announced in March 2016.

Allscripts adjusted its prior financial guidance for 2016, reflecting the consolidation of the Netsmart joint venture for financial reporting purposes into Allscripts Healthcare Solutions financial statements, beginning in the second quarter 2016, as required under GAAP:

  • Increasing revenue to between $1.580 billion and $1.610 billion, equal to midpoint range growth of 15 percent, year-over-year;
  • Increasing Adjusted EBITDA to between $280 million and $300 million, equal to midpoint range growth of 20 percent, year-over-year, and;
  • The company reiterated prior non-GAAP earnings per share guidance of between $0.55 and $0.62 per diluted share, equal to midpoint range growth of 24 percent, year-over-year.

Note: The consolidation of the Netsmart joint venture into Allscripts returns 100 percent of the revenue and expenses of that business, and then deducts minority interest from profitability.

The Company plans to provide pro forma historical financial statements in early July as well as additional detail on the impact of the Netsmart transaction on Allscripts consolidated financial statements for the remainder of 2016 at that time.

For a complete reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP items, see the explanation of non-GAAP financial measures as well as the GAAP and non-GAAP reconciliation financial tables in this release (Tables 4, 5 and 6).

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Allscripts reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. To supplement this information, Allscripts presents in this release non-GAAP gross profit, gross margin, operating expense, net income, including non-GAAP earnings per share, non-GAAP effective income tax rate, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow, which are considered non-GAAP financial measures under Section 101 of Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The definition of non-GAAP financial measures used throughout this document is presented below:

  • Non-GAAP gross profit consists of GAAP gross profit as reported and excludes acquisition-related amortization and stock-based compensation expense. Non-GAAP gross margin consists of non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of GAAP or non-GAAP revenue in the applicable period, as defined above. For the first quarter of 2016, non-GAAP gross margin totaled 46.9 percent, consisting of non-GAAP gross profit of $162.0 million divided by revenue of $345.6 million. For the first quarter of 2015, non-GAAP gross margin totaled 42.3 percent consisting of non-GAAP gross profit of $141.4 million divided by revenue of $334.6 million. Reconciliations to non-GAAP gross profit are found in Table 4 within this press release.
  • Non-GAAP operating expense consists of GAAP selling, general and administrative expenses (SG&A) and research and development expense (R&D), as reported, and excludes non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs and stock-based compensation expense recorded to SG&A and R&D. For the first quarter of 2016, non-GAAP operating expense totaled $119.7 million consisting of $84.1 million of GAAP SG&A and $47.0 million of GAAP R&D expense and excludes $3.7 million of total non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs and $7.7 million of stock-based compensation expense recorded to SG&A and R&D. For the first quarter of 2015, non-GAAP operating expense totaled $115.7 million consisting of $82.1 million of GAAP SG&A and $46.7 million of GAAP R&D expense and excludes $6.1 million of total non-recurring expense and transaction-related costs and $7.0 million of stock-based compensation expense recorded to SG&A and R&D.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure and consists of GAAP net income (loss) as reported and adjusts for: depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation expense; non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs; non-cash asset impairment charges; interest expense and other, net; equity in net earnings of unconsolidated investments; and tax provision (benefit).
  • Non-GAAP effective income tax rate is based on non-GAAP pre-tax earnings and consists of the statutory federal income tax rate, Allscripts effective state income tax rate, and adjustments for permanent differences.
  • Non-GAAP net income consists of GAAP net income/(loss) as reported, and adds back acquisition-related amortization, stock-based compensation expense, non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs, non-cash charges to interest expense and other, non-cash asset impairment charges, and equity in net earnings of unconsolidated investments, in each case net of any related tax effects. Non-GAAP net income also includes a tax rate alignment adjustment.
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share consists of non-GAAP net income, as defined above, divided by weighted shares outstanding – diluted in the applicable period.
  • Free cash flow consists of GAAP cash flows provided by operating activities in the applicable period, net of capital expenditures and capitalized software costs.

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. 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 and valuation 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. For the first quarter of 2016, Allscripts incurred $3.7 million of transaction-related expenses associated with the Netsmart joint venture.

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.

Non-Cash Asset Impairment Charges. Asset impairment charges relate primarily to product consolidation activities and the write-down of the carrying value of equity investments in third parties.

Equity in Net Earnings of Unconsolidated Investments. Equity in net earnings of unconsolidated investments relates primarily to Allscripts’ share of net losses from Nant Health, LLC recorded on a one quarter lag.

Tax Rate Alignment. Tax adjustment aligns the applicable period’s effective tax rate to the expected annual non-GAAP effective tax rate.

Management also believes that non-GAAP gross profit, SG&A, operating expense, operating income, net income, non-GAAP net income on a per share basis, Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow, 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 gross profit, 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 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. Allscripts considers free cash flow to be a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated by the business after capital expenditures and capitalized software costs. Free cash flow provides management and investors a valuable measure to determine the quantity of capital generated that can be deployed to create additional shareholder value by a variety of means. 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.
