MOBILE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 6, 2019-- CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI), a community healthcare solutions company, today announced results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2019.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per share, payable on August 30, 2019, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on August 16, 2019.

Total revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019 were $66.2 million, compared with total revenues of $67.9 million for the prior-year second quarter. GAAP net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $1.7 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared with $0.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. Cash provided by operations for the second quarter of 2019 was $9.6 million, compared with $4.7 million for the prior-year quarter.

Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2019 were $135.3 million, compared with total revenues of $138.8 million for the prior-year period. GAAP net income for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $5.1 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, compared with $4.3 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2018. Cash provided by operations for the first six months of 2019 was $17.5 million, compared with $7.8 million for the prior-year period.

“Our second quarter performance reflects improved earnings for CPSI compared with the second quarter last year and consistent top line growth for our TruBridge business,” said Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI. “TruBridge revenues accounted for 40 percent of our sales revenues for the second quarter, with most of this due to the recurring revenue model for our business services.

“Bookings for the second quarter were affected by an elongated sales cycle for both the business office outsourcing services and our acute EHR system sales. However, we are confident in the growing demand for our TruBridge services, as well as the opportunity within the acute EHR space as more hospitals look to switch vendors. We also remain optimistic about our ability to close these deals, and our pipeline for both lines of business continues to be strong.”

Commenting on the Company’s financial performance for the quarter, Matt Chambless, chief financial officer of CPSI, stated, “Although the sluggish bookings environment resulted in a slight decrease in revenues compared to the second quarter of 2018, the optimization of our cost structure over the past year propelled the second quarter growth in net income to nearly five times the prior year amount, with Adjusted EBITDA and non-GAAP EPS increasing 28% and 47%, respectively. This improvement, combined with operating cash flows that were their highest in nearly ten quarters, highlights our successes in profitability and cash flow generation.”

Douglas added, “As we position CPSI for continued success amidst a dynamic healthcare environment, we are focused on maintaining our strong retention rates by improving our clients’ experience and delivering innovative solutions that will meet the unique needs of community healthcare providers.”

CPSI will hold a live webcast to discuss second quarter 2019 results today, Tuesday, August 6, 2019, at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time. A 30-day online replay will be available approximately one hour following the conclusion of the live webcast.

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) severance and other non-recurring expenses; (v) interest expense and other, net; and (vi) 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) severance and other non-recurring expenses; (iv) non-cash charges to interest expense; and (v) the total tax effect of items (i) through (iv). Adjustments to Non-GAAP net income also include the after-tax effect of the shortfall from stock-based compensation.
  • 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.
  • Severance and other non-recurring expenses – Non-recurring expenses relate to certain severance and other charges incurred in connection with activities that are considered one-time. 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.
