WATERTOWN, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- athenahealth, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATHN), (the “Company”), a leading provider of web-based practice management, electronic health record (EHR), and patient communication services to medical groups, today announced financial and operational results for the third quarter of fiscal year 2010. The Company will conduct a conference call on Friday, October 22, 2010, at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss these results and management’s outlook for future financial and operational performance. In addition, the Company has furnished prepared remarks in conjunction with this press release via a Current Report on Form 8-K. These prepared remarks, including supplemental charts containing non-financial metrics commonly reported with quarterly results, are available within the Investors section of the Company's website at www.athenahealth.com.

Total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2010, was $63.1 million, compared to $47.4 million in the same period last year, an increase of 33%. As discussed within the Company’s Q2 2010 earnings release, third quarter 2010 results include approximately $1.0 million in business services revenue that shifted out of Q2 2010 due to the June Medicare claims hold.

“athenahealth expanded its industry leadership position this quarter,” said Jonathan Bush, the Company’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Providing clients with new revenue opportunities, such as those available from our partnership with Humana, and most recently, delivering a Meaningful Use-certified EHR to all athenaClinicals clients instantaneously, demonstrates the power of our web-based service model and our commitment to clients’ success.”

For the three months ended September 30, 2010, Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin was 62.8%, up from 58.9% in the same period last year. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA was $14.6 million, or 23.0% of total revenue, up from Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $7.9 million, or 16.6% of total revenue in the same period last year. GAAP Net Income for the third quarter of 2010 was $3.8 million, or $0.11 per diluted share compared to GAAP Net Income of $1.2 million or $0.03 per diluted share in the same period last year. Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income was $6.4 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared to $3.2 million or $0.09 per diluted share in the same period last year.

“We achieved strong revenue growth and expanded profitability during Q3 2010 while continuing to invest in sales and marketing,” said Tim Adams, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer. “In addition, we were pleased with the significant level of physician additions we achieved during the third quarter as we brought new clients onto the network and expanded relationships with existing clients.”

Adams added, “Looking ahead, we expect that revenue growth for the full year 2010 will be approximately 29% over full year 2009. In terms of Q4 2010, we expect that Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin, Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Margins should be roughly in line with the margin levels we achieved in Q4 2009. Finally, we continue to expect that our GAAP sales and marketing expense will be approximately 21% of total revenue for the full year of 2010.”

Key metrics and milestones in the third quarter of 2010 included the following:

  • $1.5 billion in collections posted to client accounts, compared to $1.2 billion in the same quarter of 2009
  • 38.8 average client Days in Accounts Receivable (DAR), compared to 39.3 average client DAR in the same quarter of 2009
  • 18,573 active physicians using athenaCollector® at September 30, 2010, compared to 14,835 at September 30, 2009
  • 26,317 active medical providers using athenaCollector at September 30, 2010, compared to 22,100 at September 30, 2009
  • 2,818 active medical providers using athenaClinicals® at September 30, 2010, 1,992 of which were physicians, compared to 1,270 providers and 780 physicians at September 30, 2009

TO COMPARABLE GAAP MEASURES
(Unaudited, in thousands, except per share amounts)

The following is a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company to describe the Company’s financial results determined in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” set forth below.

While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors regarding the underlying performance of the Company’s business operations, investors are reminded to consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, it should be noted that these non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, and management may utilize other measures to illustrate performance in the future. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company’s results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.

 

Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin

Set forth below is a presentation of the Company’s “Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Profit” and “Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin,” which represents Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Profit as a percentage of total revenue.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. However, management believes that in order to properly understand the Company's 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 in accordance with GAAP. These items result from facts and circumstances that vary in frequency and/or impact on continuing operations. Management also uses results of operations before such items 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 the Company’s ongoing business by eliminating certain non-cash expenses and other items that management believes might otherwise make comparisons of the Company’s ongoing business with prior periods more difficult, obscure trends in ongoing operations, or reduce management’s ability to make useful forecasts. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide additional means of evaluating period-over-period operating performance. In addition, management understands that some investors and financial analysts find this information helpful in analyzing the Company’s financial and operational performance and comparing this performance to its peers and competitors.

Management defines “Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Profit” as total revenue, less direct operating expense, plus stock-based compensation expense allocated to direct operating expense and amortization of purchased intangibles, and “Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin” as Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Profit as a percentage of total revenue. Management considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important indicators of the Company’s operational strength and performance of its business and a good measure of its historical operating trends. Moreover, management believes that these measures enable investors and financial analysts to closely monitor and understand changes in the Company’s ability to generate income from ongoing business operations.

Management defines “Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA” as the sum of GAAP net income before provision for income taxes, total other (income) expense, stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, acquisition-related expenses and amortization of purchased intangibles and “Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Margin” as Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue. Management defines “Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Income” as the sum of GAAP net income before provision for income taxes, total other (income) expense, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses and amortization of purchased intangibles and “Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Income Margin” as Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Income as a percentage of total revenue. Management defines “Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income” as the sum of GAAP net income before (gain) loss on interest rate derivative, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition-related expenses, amortization of purchased intangibles, and any tax impact related to these items, and “Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income per Diluted Share” as Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income divided by weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Management considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important indicators of the Company’s operational strength and performance of its business and a good measure of its historical operating trends, in particular the extent to which ongoing operations impact the Company’s overall financial performance.

Management excludes each of the items identified below from the applicable non-GAAP financial measure referenced above for the reasons set forth with respect to that excluded item:

  • Stock-based compensation expense — excluded because these are non-cash expenses that management does not consider part of ongoing operating results when assessing the performance of the Company’s business, and also because the total amount of expense is partially outside of the Company’s control because it is based on factors such as stock price volatility and interest rates, which may be unrelated to our performance during the period in which the expense is incurred.
  • Acquisition-related expenses and amortization of purchased intangibles — acquisition-related expenses are reported at the time acquisition costs are incurred, and purchased intangibles are amortized over a period of several years after the acquisition and generally cannot be changed or influenced by management after the acquisition. Accordingly, these items are not considered by management in making operating decisions, and management believes that such expenses do not have a direct correlation to future business operations. Thus, including such charges does not accurately reflect the performance of the Company’s ongoing operations for the period in which such charges are incurred.
  • Gains and losses on interest rate derivative — excluded because until they are realized, to the extent these gains or losses impact a period presented, management does not believe that they reflect the underlying performance of ongoing business operations for such period.
