Company Announces Quarterly Cash Dividend of $0.10 Per Share

MOBILE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI):

Highlights for Third Quarter 2018:

  • Revenues of $69.3 million;
  • Recurring revenues up 4% year over year;
  • TruBridge bookings of $7.3 million; total quarterly bookings of $18.8 million;
  • 13 system installations scheduled for completion during the fourth quarter;
  • GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.41 and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.79;
  • GAAP net income of $5.7 million and non-GAAP net income of $10.7 million;
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $11.9 million;
  • Cash provided by operations of $7.0 million; and
  • Quarterly dividend of $0.10 per share.

CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI), a community healthcare solutions company, today announced results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2018.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per share, payable on November 30, 2018, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on November 15, 2018.

Total revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, were $69.3 million, compared with total revenues of $67.1 million for the prior-year period. Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, was $5.7 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, compared with net income of $2.3 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

During the third quarter of 2018, the Company implemented the IRS’ recent ASC 730 Safe Harbor Directive related to expenditures that qualify for the research and development (R&D) tax credit, which resulted in an incremental $3.0 million income tax benefit to the current year (inclusive of revised estimates for the 2017 tax year). As a result, the third quarter of 2018 included a $2.0 million income tax benefit while the third quarter of 2017 included income tax expense of $1.4 million. Cash provided by operations for the third quarter of 2018 was $7.0 million, compared with cash provided by operations of $2.4 million for the prior-year period.

Total revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, were $208.1 million, compared with total revenues of $198.9 million for the prior-year period. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, was $10.0 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, compared with $4.1 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. As noted above, due to implementation of the ASC 730 Safe Harbor Directive, income tax expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, was $170,000, compared with $3.6 million for the same period a year ago. Cash provided by operations for the first nine months of 2018 was $14.9 million, compared with cash provided by operations of $18.3 million for the prior-year period.

“While we are disappointed in our third quarter electronic health record (EHR) system bookings, our services business, TruBridge, had a solid bookings performance and is nearing our goal of reaching $100 million in revenue by year end,” said Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI. “This top line growth, along with our stable client retention and sound management of our family of companies, was a key driver of our improved profitability in the third quarter. With 13 system installations scheduled for completion during the fourth quarter and a continuous pipeline of healthy sales opportunities, we remain optimistic that we will finish 2018 with a strong performance across all key metrics. We are committed to continually improving the client experience and driving innovation through our shared set of solutions to help shape and secure community healthcare well into the future.”

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or “GAAP.” However, management believes that, in order to properly understand our 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 that are prepared in accordance with GAAP. These items result from facts and circumstances that vary in frequency and impact on continuing operations. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in order 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 our ongoing business by eliminating certain non-cash expenses and other items that management believes might otherwise make comparisons of our ongoing business with prior periods more difficult, obscure trends in ongoing operations, or reduce management’s ability to make useful forecasts. In addition, management understands that some investors and financial analysts find these non-GAAP financial measures helpful in analyzing our financial and operational performance and comparing this performance to our peers and competitors.

As such, to supplement the GAAP information provided, we present in this press release the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP net income, and Non-GAAP earnings per share (“EPS”).

We calculate each of these non-GAAP financial measures as follows:

  • Adjusted EBITDA – Adjusted EBITDA consists of GAAP net income (loss) as reported and adjusts for: (i) depreciation; (ii) amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets; (iii) stock-based compensation; (iv) transaction-related costs; (v) non-recurring severance; (vi) interest expense and other, net; and (vii) the provision for income taxes.
  • Non-GAAP net income – Non-GAAP net income consists of GAAP net income (loss) as reported and adjusts for (i) amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets; (ii) stock-based compensation; (iii) transaction-related costs; (iv) non-recurring severance; (v) non-cash charges to interest expense and other; and (vi) the total tax effect of items (i) through (v).
  • Non-GAAP EPS – Non-GAAP EPS consists of Non-GAAP net income, as defined above, divided by weighted average shares outstanding (diluted) in the applicable period.

Certain of the items excluded or adjusted to arrive at these non-GAAP financial measures are described below:

  • Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets – Acquisition-related amortization expense is a non-cash expense arising primarily from the acquisition of intangible assets in connection with acquisitions or investments. We exclude acquisition-related amortization expense from non-GAAP financial measures because we believe (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our 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 – Stock-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense arising from the grant of stock-based awards. We exclude stock-based compensation expense from non-GAAP financial measures because we believe (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our 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 and other charges incurred in connection with activities that are considered one-time. Transaction-related costs are the non-recurring costs related to specific acquisitions (such as the Healthland acquisition). We exclude non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs from non-GAAP financial measures because we believe (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our 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 amortization of deferred debt issuance costs. We exclude non-cash charges to interest expense and other from non-GAAP financial measures because we believe these non-cash amounts relate to specific transactions and, as such, may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our business operations.
  • Tax shortfall (excess tax benefit) from stock-based compensation – ASU 2016-09, Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, became effective for the Company during the first quarter of 2017 and changes the treatment of tax shortfall and excess tax benefits arising from stock-based compensation arrangements. Prior to ASU 2016-09, these amounts were recorded as an increase (for excess benefits) or decrease (for shortfalls) to additional paid-in capital. With the adoption of ASU 2016-09, these amounts are now captured in the period’s income tax expense. We exclude this component of income tax expense from non-GAAP financial measures because we believe (i) the amount of such expenses or benefits in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our business operations; (ii) such expenses or benefits can vary significantly between periods as a result of the valuation of grants of new stock-based awards, the timing of vesting of awards, and periodic movements in the fair value of our common stock; and (iii) excluding these amounts assists in the comparability between current period results and results during periods prior to the adoption of ASU 2016-09.

Management considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important indicators of our operational strength and performance of our business and a good measure of our historical operating trends, in particular the extent to which ongoing operations impact our overall financial performance. In addition, management may use Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP net income and/or Non-GAAP EPS to measure the achievement of performance objectives under the Company’s stock and cash incentive programs. Note, however, that these non-GAAP financial measures are performance measures only, and they do not provide any measure of cash flow or liquidity. Non-GAAP financial measures are not alternatives for measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP measures presented by other companies, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, there is no certainty that we will not incur expenses in the future that are similar to those excluded in the calculations of the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the “Unaudited Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” above.
