In the first quarter, we further expanded our business base and grew our revenues and operating cash flows even as we began to integrate the new commission structures into our individual and family plan business. We also reduced our cost of acquisition to a level which allows us to acquire new individual and family members profitably in all of our member acquisition channels."

First Quarter Results

Operating Income -- Operating income decreased 33% to $4.0 million for the first quarter of 2011, compared to operating income of $5.9 million for the first quarter of 2010. Operating margins were 11% and 16% in the first quarters of 2011 and 2010, respectively. Non-GAAP operating income decreased 17% to $6.3 million for the first quarter of 2011, compared to non-GAAP operating income of $7.6 million for the first quarter of 2010. Non-GAAP operating margins were 17% and 21% in the first quarters of 2011 and 2010, respectively. Non-GAAP operating income and margins in the first quarter of 2011 exclude $1.9 million of stock-based compensation expense and $0.4 million of intangible asset amortization expense associated with the acquisition of PlanPrescriber, Inc. Non-GAAP operating income and margins in the first quarter of 2010 exclude $1.7 million of stock-based compensation expense.

EBITDA -- EBITDA for the first quarter of 2011 was $6.9 million, a 14% decrease compared to EBITDA of $8.1 million for the first quarter of 2010.

Pre-tax Income -- Pre-tax income for the first quarter of 2011 was $3.9 million, a 33% decrease compared to pre-tax income of $5.9 million for the first quarter of 2010.

Net Income -- Net income for the first quarter of 2011 was $2.0 million, or $0.09 per diluted share. Net income for the first quarter of 2010 was $3.2 million, or $0.13 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2011 was $3.7 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2010 of $4.4 million, or $0.18 per diluted share. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share in the first quarter of 2011 exclude $1.9 million of stock-based compensation expense and $0.4 million of intangible asset amortization expense associated with the acquisition of PlanPrescriber, Inc., less $0.6 million for related income tax benefit. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share in the first quarter of 2010 exclude $1.7 million of stock-based compensation expense and $0.5 million for related income tax benefit.

Cash Flow and Cash Balance -- Cash flow from operations for the first quarter of 2011 was $6.8 million, compared to $3.1 million for the first quarter of 2010, representing an increase of 119%. During the first quarters of 2011 and 2010, we utilized $1.1 million and $2.6 million, respectively, of previously unrecognized excess tax benefits related to share-based payments to reduce our federal and state income taxes payable. These excess tax benefits are shown in the cash flow statement as an increase in cash flow from financing activities and a decrease in cash flow from operating activities. Adjusting cash flow in both periods to reflect the full benefit from deferred income taxes, including the portion that is reported in cash flows from financing activities, first quarter 2011 cash flow from operations would have been $7.9 million as compared to $5.7 million in the first quarter of 2010.

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term marketable securities as of March 31, 2011 totaled $130.3 million, compared to $158.6 million as of March 31, 2010. The change in cash, cash equivalents and short-term marketable securities reflects $27.2 million of net cash used for the acquisition of PlanPrescriber, Inc. in April 2010 and $30.0 million used to repurchase shares of our common stock during the second half of 2010 and in January 2011 when we completed our stock repurchase program, having repurchased in the aggregate 2,297,705 shares at an average price of $13.06 per share.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
This press release includes financial measures that are not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). To supplement eHealth's condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, eHealth presents investors with certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP operating income; non-GAAP operating margins; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA"); non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share.

  • Non-GAAP operating income for the three months ended March 31, 2011 consists of GAAP operating income excluding the following items:
    • the effects of expensing stock-based compensation related to stock options, restricted stock and restricted stock units in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718 and
    • acquired intangible asset amortization expense.


  • Non-GAAP operating income for the three months ended March 31, 2010 consists of GAAP operating income excluding stock-based compensation expense recorded during the quarter.

  • Non-GAAP operating margins are calculated by dividing non-GAAP operating income by GAAP total revenue.

  • EBITDA is calculated by adding stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization expense, including the amortization of acquired intangible assets, interest and other (income) expense, net and provision for income taxes to GAAP net income.

  • Non-GAAP net income for the three months ended March 31, 2011 consists of GAAP net income excluding the following items:
    • stock-based compensation expense recorded during the quarter,
    • acquired intangible asset amortization expense and
    • the related income tax benefit of these excluded items.


  • Non-GAAP net income for the three months ended March 31, 2010 consists of GAAP net income excluding the following items:
    • stock-based compensation expense recorded during the quarter and
    • the related income tax benefit of this excluded item.


  • Non-GAAP net income per diluted share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income by GAAP weighted average diluted shares outstanding.

eHealth believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provide important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations. Management believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides consistency and comparability with the Company's past financial reports. Management also believes that the exclusion of the items described above provides an additional measure of the Company's operating results and facilitates comparisons of the Company's core operating performance against prior periods and business model objectives. This information is provided to investors in order to facilitate additional analyses of past, present and future operating performance and as a supplemental means to evaluate the Company's ongoing operations. Externally, the Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in their assessment of the Company's operating performance.

Non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP operating margins, EBITDA, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, and should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the revenue and costs associated with the operations of the Company's business and do not reflect income tax as determined in accordance with GAAP. As a result, you should not consider these measures in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of eHealth's results as reported under GAAP. The Company expects to continue to incur the stock-based compensation costs and purchased intangible asset amortization costs described above, and exclusion of these costs, and their related income tax benefits, from non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that these costs are unusual or infrequent. The Company compensates for these limitations by prominently disclosing GAAP operating income, GAAP operating margins, GAAP net income and GAAP net income per diluted share and providing investors with reconciliations from the Company's GAAP operating results to the non-GAAP financial measures for the relevant periods.

The accompanying tables provide more details on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measures described above and the related reconciliations between these financial measures.

Notes:
(1)  Net cash provided by operating activities for the period from the
     condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.
(2)  IFP applications submitted on eHealth's website during the period.
     Applications are counted as submitted when the applicant completes the
     application, provides a method for payment and clicks the submit
     button on our website and submits the application to us. The applicant
     generally has additional actions to take before the application will
     be reviewed by the insurance carrier, such as providing additional
     information and providing an electronic signature. In addition, an
     applicant may submit more than one application. We include
     applications for IFP products for which we receive commissions as well
     as other forms of payment. We define our "IFP" offerings as major
     medical individual and family health insurance plans, which does not
     include small business, short-term major medical, stand-alone dental,
     life or student health insurance product offerings.
(3)  New IFP members reported to eHealth as approved during the period.
     Some members that are approved by a carrier do not accept the approval
     and therefore do not become paying members.
(4)  New members for all products reported to eHealth as approved during
     the period. Some members that are approved by a carrier do not accept
     the approval and therefore do not become paying members.
