CHICAGO, Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDRX) (Allscripts) announced its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018.

Third Quarter Financial Highlights

Third quarter 2018 GAAP revenue was $522 million, an increase of 16 percent year-over-year. Non-GAAP revenue totaled $536 million, improving 19 percent year-over-year.

Contract revenue backlog as of September 30, 2018, totaled $4.7 billion, up 13 percent compared to a year ago. Bookings(1) were $246 million in the third quarter of 2018. This result compares with $304 million in the third quarter of 2017.

Gross margin in the third quarter of 2018 was 41.8 percent on a GAAP basis and 46.9 percent on a non-GAAP basis, compared with 44.9 and 48.4 percent, respectively, in the third quarter of 2017.

On a GAAP basis in the third quarter of 2018, total operating expenses, consisting of selling, general and administrative and research and development expenses, were $203 million, or a 20 percent increase year-over-year. Non-GAAP operating expenses totaled $180 million, a 21 percent increase year-over-year. The increase year-over-year was primarily due to the acquisition of the Enterprise Information Solutions (EIS) business from McKesson Corporation and the acquisition of Practice Fusion. Additionally, the company recorded $16 million of legal, transaction-related and other costs in the third quarter of 2018. This compares with $11 million of such costs in the third quarter of 2017.

GAAP net loss in the third quarter of 2018 totaled $36 million compared with $29 million in the third quarter of 2017. Non-GAAP net income in the third quarter of 2018 totaled $31 million, up 5 percent when compared with the third quarter of 2017.

GAAP loss per share in the third quarter of 2018 was $0.20, compared with $0.16 in the third quarter of 2017. Non-GAAP earnings per share in the third quarter of 2018 were $0.18, compared with $0.16 in the third quarter of 2017.

Adjusted EBITDA totaled $106 million in the third quarter of 2018, a 9 percent increase compared with the third quarter of 2017.

Cash flow from operations for the third quarter of 2018 totaled $15 million, compared to $64 million for the same period of 2017.

“Our business model delivered strong revenue and earnings growth in the quarter as we benefitted from our recurring revenue base and the acquisitions we have successfully integrated over the past year,” commented Paul M. Black, Chief Executive Officer of Allscripts. “Looking ahead, we believe we will continue to benefit from the investments we have made in building out a complete solution set for our clients in both the acute and ambulatory sectors as well as our unique offering in the payer and life sciences business.”

2018 Financial Outlook

Allscripts affirms the following financial outlook for 2018, published originally on February 15, 2018. The company now expects to report 2018 results at the low end of the following ranges:

  • Non-GAAP revenue of between $2.15 billion and $2.25 billion, up 17% to 22% year over year
  • Adjusted EBITDA between $420 million and $460 million, up 12% to 23% year over year, consisting of:
    °  Allscripts, excluding Netsmart, Adjusted EBITDA between $310-340 million, and;
    °  Netsmart Adjusted EBITDA between $110-120 million
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share of between $0.72 to $0.82, an increase of 16% to 32% year over year

As of January 1, 2018, Allscripts adopted the new revenue recognition guidance in ASC 606 using the modified retrospective method. Within the body of this earnings release, all amounts for 2018 are reflected under the new revenue recognition standard, and the 2018 financial outlook incorporates the expected impact of the new revenue recognition standard. The overall impact to third quarter results is immaterial from a comparability perspective against historical results. Please refer to Allscripts’ Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2018, which will be filed with the SEC, for additional information regarding the impact of the new revenue recognition standard on our financial results.

In providing financial guidance, the company does not reconcile non-GAAP revenue, Adjusted EBITDA or non-GAAP earnings per share guidance to the corresponding GAAP financial measures. Allscripts does not provide guidance for the various reconciling items since certain items that impact GAAP revenue and net income are either outside of its control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted.

Please see the “Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” at the end of this press release for detailed information on calculating non-GAAP measures. For a reconciliation of other non-GAAP items, see the non-GAAP financial reconciliation 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 revenue, gross profit, gross margin, operating expense, Adjusted EBITDA, effective income tax rate, net income and earnings per share, which are considered non-GAAP financial measures under Section 101 of Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The definitions of non-GAAP financial measures used throughout this document are presented below:

  • Non-GAAP revenue consists of GAAP revenue, as reported, and adds back recognized deferred revenue from the EIS business, Practice Fusion, HealthGrid, Netsmart, NantHealth’s provider/patient engagement business and non-material consolidated affiliates that are eliminated for GAAP purposes due to purchase accounting adjustments.
     
  • Non-GAAP gross profit consists of GAAP gross profit, as reported, and excludes acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustments, acquisition-related amortization, stock-based compensation expense and transaction-related and other costs. Non-GAAP gross margin consists of non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of non-GAAP revenue in the applicable period. For the third quarter of 2018, non-GAAP gross margin totaled 46.9 percent, consisting of non-GAAP gross profit of $251.2 million divided by non-GAAP revenue of $535.8 million. For the third quarter of 2017, non-GAAP gross margin totaled 48.4 percent, consisting of non-GAAP gross profit of $218.4 million divided by non-GAAP revenue of $451.0 million. Reconciliations to 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 transaction-related and other costs and stock-based compensation expense recorded to SG&A and R&D. For the third quarter of 2018, non-GAAP operating expense totaled $179.6 million, consisting of $133.2 million of GAAP SG&A and $69.7 million of GAAP R&D expense and excluding $13.7 million of total transaction-related and other costs and $9.6 million of stock-based compensation expense recorded to SG&A and R&D. For the third quarter of 2017, non-GAAP operating expense totaled $148.2 million consisting of $117.4 million of GAAP SG&A and $51.1 million of GAAP R&D expense and excluding $11.2 million of transaction-related and other costs and $9.1 million of stock-based compensation expense recorded to SG&A and R&D. Please note operating expense totals may not sum due to rounding.
     
  • Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure and consists of GAAP net income/(loss), as reported, and adjusts for: acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustments; depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation expense; transaction-related and other costs; asset impairment charges; non-cash asset and long-term investment impairment charges; gain on sale of business, net; 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 deferred revenue adjustments, acquisition-related amortization, stock-based compensation expense, transaction-related and other costs, non-cash asset and long-term investment impairment charges, non-cash charges to interest expense and other, asset impairment charges, gain on sale of business, net, and equity in net earnings of unconsolidated investments and the related tax effect of the aforementioned adjustments. Non-GAAP net income also includes a tax rate alignment adjustment.
     
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. is a non-GAAP measure and consists of non-GAAP net income, as described above, with an adjustment to reduce non-GAAP net income for the percentage of non-controlling interest outside Allscripts ownership position. For this presentation, Netsmart preferred stock is treated as if it was converted to common stock. There can be no assurance that the holders of Netsmart preferred stock will elect to convert their holdings to common stock.
     
  • Non-GAAP earnings per share consist 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 Deferred Revenue Adjustments. Deferred revenue adjustments include acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustments, which reflect the fair value adjustments to deferred revenue acquired in a business acquisition. The fair value of acquired deferred revenue represents an amount equivalent to the estimated cost plus an appropriate profit margin, to perform services related to the acquiree's software and product support, which assumes a legal obligation to do so, based on the deferred revenue balances as of the acquisition date. Allscripts adds back acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustments for its non-GAAP financial measures because it believes the inclusion of this amount directly correlates to the underlying performance of Allscripts operations.

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 because 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 operating expense, 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.

Transaction-Related and Other Costs. Transaction-related and other costs relate to certain legal proceedings, consulting, severance, incentive compensation and other charges incurred in connection with activities that are considered one-time. For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, Allscripts incurred $83 million of transaction-related and other expenses, which included $29 million allocated to fund the Allscripts annual incentive cash bonus plan that was contingent on the consummation of the sale of the OneContent business.

Allscripts excludes transaction-related and other costs, in whole or in part, from non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating expense, 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 include the 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 and the write-offs of unamortized deferred debt issuance costs.

Asset impairment charges. Asset impairment charges include the write-off of purchased third-party software as a result of our decision to discontinue several software development projects.

Impairment of and Losses on Long-Term Investments. Impairment of and losses on long-term investments relates to other-than-temporary non-cash impairment charges associated with such investments based on management’s assessment of the likelihood of near-term recovery of the investments’ value. The amounts recorded during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 relate to a non-cash impairment charge related to two of our cost-method equity investments and a related note receivable.

Gain on sale of business, net. Gain on sale of businesses, net for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 consists of $177.9 million gain, partly offset by $4.7 million loss, from the divestitures of our OneContent and Strategic Sourcing businesses, respectively, both of which were acquired as part of the EIS transaction during the fourth quarter of 2017.

Equity in Net Income of Unconsolidated Investments. Equity in net income of unconsolidated investments represents Allscripts share of the equity earnings of our investments in third parties accounted for under the equity method, including the amortization of cost basis adjustments.

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

Management also believes that non-GAAP revenue, gross profit, gross margin, operating expense, effective income tax rate, net income, earnings per share, 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, operating expense, operating income, net income, earnings per share and/or Adjusted EBITDA to measure achievement under Allscripts stock and cash incentive compensation plans. Note, however, that non-GAAP gross profit, operating income, net income earnings per share 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 definitions and reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures with GAAP financial measures contained within the attached condensed consolidated financial statements.
