DENVER, May 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioScrip, Inc. (NASDAQ:BIOS) (“BioScrip” or the “Company”) today announced financial results for the first quarter 2016. For the first quarter, the Company reported revenue from continuing operations of $238.5 million, net loss from continuing operations of ($11.9) million and diluted EPS of ($0.17) loss per share.

First Quarter Highlights

  • Net revenue for the first quarter 2016 was $238.5 million, a decrease year over year as anticipated in accordance with the planned shift in revenue mix to greater core infusion revenue business composition away from lower margin chronic infusion revenue.
  • Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was $7.4 million for the first quarter 2016, up $2.5 million year over year from the first quarter 2015 Adjusted EBITDA of $4.9 million. The year over year increase was due to the success of the Company’s operating improvement initiatives to further reduce its costs and focus more directly on its core infusion business;
  • Infusion Services Adjusted EBITDA (which excludes corporate overhead costs) was $17.0 million, or 7.1% of revenues, for the 2016 first quarter representing an increase of $2.0 million over the first quarter 2015; and

Rick Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer stated, “We are pleased with our first quarter results, which reflect continued patient census growth tempered by seasonality. The improvement in our Adjusted EBITDA results in the quarter is continued evidence of our strengthening operations. The infusion platform we have developed through BioScrip’s clinical and operational teams enables us to serve our patients daily with high-quality care and outstanding service.”

Results of Operations

First Quarter 2016 versus Prior Year First Quarter 2015

Revenue from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2016 was $238.5 million, compared to $244.4 million in the first quarter of 2015, a decrease of $5.9 million or 2.4%. The decrease was due primarily to the Company’s planned shift in revenue mix to greater core revenues away from lower margin chronic.

Consolidated gross profit for the first quarter of 2016 was $64.2 million, or 26.9% of revenue, up 30 basis points as a percentage of revenue as compared to the same period prior year.

Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2016 was $7.4 million representing an increase of $2.5 million or 51% over the same period prior year Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA which was $4.9 million. Excluding Corporate Overhead Adjusted EBITDA, Infusion Services Adjusted EBITDA was $17.0 million for the first quarter 2016, an increase of $2.0 million over the first quarter 2015. This increase was due to the continued operating improvement initiatives employed by the Company to further reduce operating costs including reducing bad debt costs as a result of improved cash collection experience on accounts receivables. Adjusted EBITDA excludes, among other things, restructuring expenses such as severance and retention costs and certain restructuring related consulting & professional fees. Restructuring, integration and other expenses in the first quarter 2016 totaled $2.7 million, down $1.0 million from the same quarter prior year.

Interest expense in the first quarter of 2016 was $9.4 million, roughly consistent with $9.2 million in the first quarter 2015.

Income tax expense from continuing operations in the first quarter of 2016 was negligible and decreased as compared to the income tax expense in the same period prior year of $1.9 million.

Net loss from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2016 was ($11.9) million, or ($0.17) per diluted share, compared to the same first quarter period in 2015 net loss of ($18.9) million, or ($0.28) per diluted share.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of May 5, 2016, the Company had $54.2 million of liquidity, which is comprised of $7.6 million of cash and $46.6 of undrawn capacity available on its revolving credit facility.

The Company had a net use of cash of $5.0 million for the first quarter 2016 when factoring in the $8.9 million semi-annual cash interest payment on the 2021 Notes.

Forward-Looking Statements – Safe Harbor
This press release includes statements that may constitute "forward-looking statements," including projections of certain measures of the Company's results of operations, including its revenues and cash flows, projections of future cost savings associated with the absence or reduction of certain charges and expenses, and other statements regarding the Company's expectations regarding the impact of its financial improvement plan and strategy. These statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as "may," "should," "could," "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "outlook," "aim," "intend," "plan," "believe," "predict," "potential," "continue" or comparable terms. Because such statements inherently involve risks and uncertainties, actual future results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Investors are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties, and that actual results may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors. Important factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include but are not limited to risks associated with: the Company's ability to continue to experience positive results from its financial improvement plan to reduce operating costs and focus its business on its Infusion Services segment; reductions in federal, state and commercial reimbursement for the Company's products and services; increased government regulation related to the health care and insurance industries; as well as the risks described in the Company's periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company does not undertake any duty to update these forward-looking statements after the date hereof, even though the Company's situation may change in the future. All of the forward-looking statements herein are qualified by these cautionary statements.

Reconciliation to Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to reporting all financial information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company is also reporting Adjusted EBITDA which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under GAAP and should not be used in isolation or as a substitute or alternative to net income, operating income or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as a substitute or alternative to cash flow from operating activities or a measure of the Company’s liquidity. In addition, the Company's definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures reported by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company, represents net income before net interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, gain on sale of property and equipment, stock-based compensation expense, and restructuring, integration and other expenses. As part of restructuring, the Company may incur significant charges such as the write down of certain long−lived assets, temporary redundant expenses, retraining expenses, potential cash bonus payments and potential accelerated payments or terminated costs for certain of its contractual obligations. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful supplemental information regarding the performance of BioScrip’s business operations and facilitates comparisons to the Company’s historical operating results. For a full reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most comparable GAAP financial measure, please see the attachment to this earnings release.
