Patient Home Monitoring Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:PHM), a healthcare services company with operations in the U.S., announced today that it has posted its financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2016.

Highlights:

  • Revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2016 were approximately $31,035,000 and gross margin was $24,246,000, or 78%. Adjusted EBITDA was approximately $4,594,000, or 15% which is the highest amount since the first quarter of 2016.
  • The Company continued to drive expenses down as shown by the 8% drop in total general and administrative (G&A) expenses (excluding bad debt) from the quarter ended December 31, 2015. Excluding bad debt expense, G&A expenses continued to decline from the quarter ended September 30, 2016 which is a result of the ongoing reduction of salary expense and overall operating costs.

  • Revenues for the second quarter of 2017 are expected to be approximately $31.5-32.5 million which is slightly higher than the first quarter. Additionally, the Company is expecting to generate a consolidated Adjusted EBITDA margin percentage similar to the current quarter depending on transaction costs and other seasonal trends in the industry.

About Patient Home Monitoring Corp.

The explosive growth in the number of elderly patients in the US healthcare market is creating pressure to provide more efficient delivery systems. Healthcare providers, such as hospitals, physicians and pharmacies, are seeking partners that can offer a range of products and services that improve outcomes, reduce hospital readmissions, and help control costs. The Company fills this need by delivering a growing number of specialized products and services to achieve these goals. The Company serves patients with heart disease and other chronic health conditions, this operation is a platform for acquisitions and organic growth. The Company is focused on a highly fragmented and developing market of small privately-held companies servicing chronically ill patients with multiple disease states caused mainly by age and obesity. The Company's post acquisition organic growth strategy is to increase annual revenue per patient by offering multiple services to the same patient, consolidating the patient's services and making life easier for the patient.

Non-GAAP Measures

This press release refers to "Adjusted EBITDA" which is a non-GAAP and non-IFRS financial measure that does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP or IFRS. The Company's presentation of this financial measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. This financial measure is intended to provide additional information to investors concerning the Company's performance. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as EBITDA excluding stock based compensation and gains/losses on financial derivatives. Adjusted EBITDA is a Non-IFRS measure the Company uses as an indicator of financial health, and excludes several items which may be useful in the consideration of the financial condition of the Company, including interest expense, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock based compensation, good will impairment and gain/losses on financial derivatives. The following table shows our Non-IFRS measure (Adjusted EBITDA) reconciled to our net loss for the indicated periods:

Quarter Ended
December 31, 2016
Net loss $ (4,050)
Add back:
Depreciation and amortization 7,664
Interest expense (net of interest income) 450
(Recovery) Provision for income taxes 487
EBITDA 4,551
Stock-based compensation 173
Loss (gain) on financial derivatives (130)
Adjusted EBITDA $ 4,594

Management uses these non-GAAP measures as key metrics in the evaluation of the Company's performance and the consolidated financial results. The Company believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors in their assessment of the operating performance and the valuation of the Company. In addition, these non-GAAP measures address questions the Company routinely receives from analysts and investors and, in order to assure that all investors have access to similar data, the Company has determined that it is appropriate to make this data available to all investors. However, non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, and the information is not necessarily comparable to other companies and should be considered as a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
