First Choice Healthcare Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results

Comparable Nine-Month Revenues Up 75% and Positive Cash Flow Materially Strengthens

MELBOURNE, FL--(Marketwired - Nov 15, 2013) -   First Choice Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: FCHS) ("FCHS" or "First Choice"), a diversified holding company focused on delivering clinically superior, patient-centric, multi-specialty care through state-of-the-art medical centers of excellence, today announced its third quarter results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Financial Highlights for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2013 Compared to the Three Months Ended September 30, 2012:

  • Total revenues rose 55% to $1,654,730 from $1,068,624.

  • Income from operations was $142,864, up 206% from a loss from operations of $134,184.

    • Notwithstanding non-cash expenses of $124,378 for depreciation and amortization, income from operations totaled $267,242 in the third quarter of 2013; this compared to a loss from operations less non-cash depreciation and amortization expenses totaled $60,666 for the third quarter in 2012.

    • On a subsequent quarter over quarter basis, income from operations for the third quarter 2013 increased 216% over income from operations of $45,236 reported for the second quarter of this year.

  • Despite higher interest expense associated with the servicing of loans ($302,590 for the three month reporting period in 2013 compared to $135,652 for the same period in 2012), net loss totaled $183,409, or $0.01 loss per basic and diluted share, representing a 35% decrease from a net loss of $283,423, or $0.02 loss per basic and diluted share for the same period in 2012. 

Financial Highlights for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2013 Compared to the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012:

  • Total revenues were $4,525,981, climbing 75% from $2,590,873.

  • Income from operations increased 237% to $278,443 from a loss from operations of $203,542.

    • Income from operations, before factoring non-cash expenses of $373,803 for depreciation and amortization, totaled $652,246, which compared to a loss from operations of $16,122 notwithstanding depreciation and amortization expenses of $187,420.

  • After factoring interest expense of $983,966 and amortization financing costs of $51,477, offset by a gain on change in fair value of a derivative liability of $187,351, the net loss for the first nine months of 2013 declined 6% to $558,870, or $0.04 loss per basic and diluted share, from $593,715, or $0.05 loss per basic and diluted share. For the comparable period in 2012, the net loss was impacted by $372,515 in interest expense and amortization and financing costs of $43,011. 

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had cash and restricted cash totaling $455,331; accounts receivable of $1,174,488; total liabilities of $12,678,060, which included $10,033,993 in long term debt; and total stockholders' deficit of $968,029. However, subsequent to the end of the third quarter, First Choice raised gross proceeds of $2,000,000 from issuing an 8% Original Issue Secured Convertible Debenture to an institutional investor and paid off or converted to equity a total of $1,238,480 in debt, further strengthening the Company's balance sheet. In addition, the Company modified its $1.5 million line of credit with CT Capital, providing for the reduction of the annual interest rate from 12% per annum to 6% per annum in exchange for the issuance of 100,000 restricted shares of First Choice's common stock.

Commenting on the results, Chris Romandetti, Chairman, President and CEO of First Choice, stated, "We are very pleased with our solid financial performance through the end of the third quarter, which serves to validate the fundamental strength of our 'medical centers of excellence' business model and points to the compelling nature of our long term value proposition. We're particularly proud of the fact that the results serve to underscore First Choice's success-to-date in executing growth strategies that have allowed our flagship center, First Choice Medical Group, to steadily expand its team of exceptional care professionals, increase the number of patients it cares for on a daily basis, and perpetuate and enhance its reputation as the obvious 'first choice' for patients seeking clinically superior care and attention." 

Continuing, Romandetti said, "With the recent completion of the strategic financing, providing for very favorable terms to FCHS and our shareholders, coupled with the steps taken to retire or convert to equity over $1.2 million in debt, we are well poised to continue implementing expansion initiatives that will allow us to begin replicating our business model in other geographic markets in the coming year."
