Gary Lauer, chief executive officer of eHealth, stated, "In the first quarter of 2012, we continued to build momentum in our business reflected by the revenues and earnings we are reporting today. We are very pleased with these results which demonstrate meaningful progress in growing our Medicare plan business and maintaining market leadership in our core individual and family plan business. Based on our first quarter results we are raising our 2012 annual revenue guidance."

First Quarter Results

Revenue -- Revenue for the first quarter of 2012 totaled $37.1 million, a 1% decrease compared to revenue of $37.6 million for the first quarter of 2011. Commission revenue for the first quarter of 2012 totaled $31.5 million, a 2% increase compared to commission revenue of $30.8 million for the first quarter of 2011.

Stuart Huizinga, chief financial officer of eHealth, commented, "First quarter Medicare revenue was $6.5 million, a more than 180% increase year-over-year. Close to 60% of first quarter Medicare revenue came from broker commissions as compared to approximately 20% in the first quarter of 2011 reflecting our progress in transitioning to a direct fulfillment model."

Submitted Applications -- Submitted applications for individual and family products decreased 3% in the first quarter of 2012 to 115,400 applications, compared to 119,000 applications in the first quarter of 2011.

Membership -- Estimated membership at March 31, 2012 totaled 848,600 members, a 6% increase over estimated membership of 801,200 at March 31, 2011. Total approved members, including individual and family plan, Medicare plan and other product members, increased 8% to 151,800 in the first quarter of 2012 compared to 141,000 in the first quarter of 2011.

Operating Income -- Operating income for the first quarter of 2012 was $3.9 million, compared to operating income of $4.0 million for the first quarter of 2011. Operating margins were 11% in each of the first quarters of 2012 and 2011.

Non-GAAP operating income for the first quarter of 2012 was $6.0 million, compared to non-GAAP operating income of $6.3 million for the first quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP operating margins were 16% and 17% in the first quarters of 2012 and 2011, respectively. Non-GAAP operating income and margins in the first quarter of 2012 exclude $1.6 million of stock-based compensation expense and $0.4 million of intangible asset amortization expense. 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.

EBITDA -- EBITDA for the first quarter of 2012 was $6.6 million, a 5% decrease compared to EBITDA of $6.9 million for the first quarter of 2011. EBITDA is calculated by adding stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization expense, including intangible asset amortization expense, interest and other (income) expense, net and provision for income taxes to GAAP net income.

Pre-tax Income -- Pre-tax income for each of the first quarters of 2012 and 2011 was $3.9 million.

Net Income -- Net income for the first quarter of 2012 was $2.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.0 million, or $0.09 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net income for the first quarter of 2012 was $3.5 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $3.7 million, or $0.17 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per diluted share in the first quarter of 2012 exclude $1.6 million of stock-based compensation expense and $0.4 million of intangible asset amortization expense, less $0.7 million for related income tax benefit. 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, less $0.6 million for related income tax benefit.

Cash Flows and Cash Balance -- Cash flows from operations for the first quarter of 2012 were $5.1 million, compared to cash flows from operations of $6.8 million for the first quarter of 2011.

Cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2012 totaled $116.2 million, compared to $123.6 million as of December 31, 2011. The change in cash and cash equivalents reflects $8.4 million used to repurchase 0.6 million shares of our common stock in the first quarter of 2012 as a part of a stock repurchase program. In the first quarter of 2012, eHealth completed a $30 million share repurchase program at an average per share price of $13.78. The change in cash and cash equivalents also reflects $4.4 million of cash consideration paid to a partner, whereby the partner transferred certain of its existing Medicare plan members to us as the broker of record on the underlying policies. Partially offsetting these uses of cash was $5.1 million of cash generated by operating activities in the three months ended March 31, 2012.

2012 Guidance

eHealth is raising its total revenue guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2012 based on information currently available:

  • Total revenue is expected to be in the range of $152 million to $158 million

eHealth is reaffirming its guidance for the full year ending December 31, 2012 provided on its last earnings call as follows:

  • Stock-based compensation expense is expected to be in the range of $6.5 million to $8 million
  • EBITDA* is expected to be in the range of $21 million to $26 million
  • Non-GAAP net income per diluted share** is expected to be in the range of $0.56 to $0.66 per share

Stuart Huizinga, chief financial officer of eHealth, commented, "Based on the performance of our Medicare business and solid demand trends that we are observing in this market, we are planning to invest more in our Medicare business than we anticipated at the beginning of the year. Specifically, we want to further accelerate our move towards fulfilling 100% of our Medicare plan demand as a broker. This will require an accelerated increase in our customer care resources and related infrastructure. As a result, despite the increase in our revenue guidance range, we are not raising our 2012 EBITDA and EPS guidance ranges."

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

** Non-GAAP net income per diluted share is calculated by excluding stock-based compensation expense, intangible asset amortization expense and the estimated tax benefit relating to these expenses.

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

  • 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 intangible asset amortization expense, interest and other (income) expense, net and provision for income taxes to GAAP net income.

  • Non-GAAP net income consists of GAAP net income excluding the following items:
    • the effects of expensing stock-based compensation related to stock options and restricted stock units in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718,
    • intangible asset amortization expense, and
    • the related income tax benefit of these excluded items.

  • 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.
