MOBILE, Ala.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CPSI (NASDAQ: CPSI), a community healthcare solutions company, today announced results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Total revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, were $68.5 million, compared with total revenues of $59.5 million for the prior-year second quarter. GAAP net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, was $6.1 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, compared with $1.8 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. Cash provided by operations for the second quarter of 2021 was $19.4 million, compared with $17.2 million for the prior-year quarter. Net debt at June 30, 2021, was $97.0 million.

Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2021, were $136.5 million, compared with total revenues of $129.3 million for the prior-year period. GAAP net income for the six months ended June 30, 2021, was $10.3 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, compared with $5.9 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2020. Cash provided by operations for the first six months of 2021 was $33.1 million, compared with $24.8 million for the prior-year period.

Commenting on the Company’s financial performance for the second quarter of 2021, Matt Chambless, chief financial officer of CPSI, stated, “The results for the second quarter of 2021 were highlighted by a strong performance by TruBridge, as well as a modest improvement in system sales revenue compared with a year ago. The continued resiliency of our customer base, combined with the recent acquisition of TruCode LLC, a leading provider of medical coding software, resulted in yet another top-line record for TruBridge, up 31.2 percent over the second quarter of 2020. We also achieved record quarterly non-GAAP net income of $10.8 million, and solid growth in Adjusted EBITDA to $14.3 million, with Adjusted EBITDA margin only 30 basis points from a new high margin mark. Our focused initiatives on more efficient business process management and better labor capitalization were key drivers of our improved profitability.

“The acquisition of TruCode, completed on May 12, 2021, reflects our disciplined efforts spanning multiple years to better position CPSI to opportunistically deploy capital. TruCode’s cloud-based solutions complement our proven suite of TruBridge services and solutions and offer significant cross-selling opportunities within our acute and post-acute care customer bases. With leverage after the transaction still below our target limit of 2.5 times debt-to-EBITDA, we are well positioned to continue to pursue other M&A opportunities that fit our strategic profile and support further growth,” added Chambless.

Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI, stated, “As we exit the first half of the year, we are very pleased with the strong results that reflect our continued focus on our aggressive, three-year growth strategy. TruBridge again delivered impressive revenue and margin results, which in combination with improved operational efficiencies and the expansion of recurring revenue, are helping to build sustainable and profitable growth for CPSI in 2021 and beyond.

“While total bookings of $16.6 million were an improvement over the first quarter of the year, we still encountered headwinds in the sales process as the focus of our potential customers remains on the COVID recovery process. We are encouraged both by a healthy pipeline across our services and EHR businesses and by the great start to the second half of the year in terms of sales. Along with the progress made in margin optimization, we are optimistic that the downward pressure on bookings in the first half of the year will have a minimal impact on our three-year outlook,” added Douglas.

CPSI will hold a live webcast to discuss second quarter 2021 results today, Tuesday, August 3, 2021, at 3:30 p.m. Central Time, 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 and during the live webcast discussing our financial results 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 as reported and adjusts for (i) deferred revenue and other adjustments arising from purchase allocation adjustments related to business acquisitions; (ii) depreciation expense; (iii) amortization of software development costs; (vi) amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets; (v) stock-based compensation; (vi) severance and other non-recurring charges; (vii) interest expense and other, net; and (viii) the provision for income taxes.
  • Non-GAAP net income – Non-GAAP net income consists of GAAP net income as reported and adjusts for (i) deferred revenue and other adjustments arising from purchase allocation adjustments related to business acquisitions; (ii) amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets; (iii) stock-based compensation; (iv) severance and other non-recurring charges; (v) non-cash interest expense; (vi) loss on extinguishment of debt; and (vii) the total tax effect of items (i) through (vii). 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:

  • Deferred revenue and other adjustments - Deferred revenue and other adjustments includes acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustments, which reflect the fair value adjustments to deferred revenues acquired in business acquisitions. The fair value of 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. We add back deferred revenue and other adjustments for non-GAAP financial measures because we believe the inclusion of this amount directly correlates to the underlying performance of our operations.
  • 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 charges – Non-recurring charges 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 interest expense – Non-cash interest expense includes amortization of deferred debt issuance costs. We exclude non-cash interest expense 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; and (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.

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.
