Authentidate Holding Corp. Reports Fiscal 2013 Third Quarter Results

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., May 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq:ADAT), a provider of secure web-based software applications and telehealth products and services for healthcare organizations, today announced financial results for the three and nine month periods ended March 31, 2013.

Selected highlights for the quarter include:

  • Increased revenues for the quarter by approximately 85% compared to the same period in the prior year due to growth from both our telehealth products and services and our hosted software services.
  • Completed the integration between the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) VistA Electronic Health Records system and our Electronic House Call (EHC) and Interactive Voice Response (IVR) telehealth solutions and the VA approved the use of the interface in its national telehealth program.
  • Entered into an agreement with Fastrack™ Healthcare Systems to provide ongoing development updates and support for an interface between our Inscrybe® Referral and Order Management solution and the Fastrack Enterprise System to streamline care order processing and enable physician eSignatures for Fastrack customers and referring physicians.
  • Introduced a mobile telehealth tablet and a telehealth software application to address the growing need for mobility in the telehealth market, complement our current products and services and provide for a broader range of price points and patient segments that can benefit from telehealth.

Following the end of the quarter, the company announced that our shareholders had approved the automatic conversion of the company's outstanding shares of Series C 15% convertible redeemable preferred stock into an aggregate of 3,551,541 shares of common stock. These shares are subject to a six month restriction on transferability from the conversion date.

Ben Benjamin, Chief Executive Officer of Authentidate, stated, "Our revenues are moving in the right direction and we believe the pace of our revenue growth will continue to improve as we execute on our growth plans. During the quarter we continued to focus on increasing sales of our telehealth products and services to the VA and believe we are making solid progress with this important project as evidenced by the increase in our telehealth revenues for the period. We also made progress with our other solutions as we remained focused primarily on increasing the utilization of our services by existing customers and adding partner relationships to expand our reach in these markets. We believe the increasing interest we are seeing in our products and services stems from the ongoing healthcare reform in the United States as well as industry trends to reduce costs, shift patient care towards wellness and preventative care programs and provide post-acute continuum of care solutions for patients. As the healthcare market develops, we believe our business will benefit from these reforms and market trends as we serve these emerging needs with our innovative products and services."

Mr. Benjamin concluded, "Although the economic environment has remained challenging, we believe we are well positioned for future growth and profitability. As our markets develop, we have continued to manage our expenses, including expanding our compensation modification program during the quarter to further reduce employee cash compensation. We also converted all director compensation to non-cash equity based grants. We believe the conversion of our Series C preferred stock into common stock will strengthen our balance sheet and allow us to allocate resources to support our growth plans. We remain very excited about the future prospects for our company and will continue to update our shareholders in the coming months as opportunities in our market develop."

Revenues for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 were $1,410,000 compared to $764,000 for the prior year period. These results reflect an increase in revenues from both our telehealth products and services and our hosted software services. Revenues for the third quarter increased approximately 34% compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2013 due to higher revenues from our telehealth products and services.

Net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 was $2,670,000, or $0.11 per share, compared to $2,018,000, or $0.08 per share, for the prior year period. The increase in net loss for the quarter is due primarily to the non-cash amortization of the debt discount on the company's senior secured notes of approximately $822,000 and the acquired licenses and higher selling, legal, special shareholder meeting, investor relations and product development expenses.

Revenues for the nine months ended March 31, 2013 were $3,382,000 compared to $2,176,000 for the prior year period. The increase in revenues for the period reflects the same trends as the quarter.

Net loss for the nine months ended March 31, 2013 was $7,918,000, or $0.33 per share, compared to $5,597,000, or $0.23 per share, for the prior year period. The increase in net loss for the period is due primarily to the non-cash amortization of the debt discount on the company's senior secured notes of approximately $2,195,000 and the acquired licenses and the expenses discussed above. The prior year period also reflects a payroll tax credit which lowered expenses for the period.

As of March 31, 2013 cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were $764,000 and the company had working capital of $3,298,000. After adjusting for the conversion of the Series C preferred stock into common stock on April 5, 2013, and the reclassification of the Series B preferred stock, pro-forma total shareholders' equity was $1,521,000 at March 31, 2013.
