Greenway Medical Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: GWAY), reported results from operations for the three months and year ended June 30, 2013, that reflect the ongoing shift in revenue from recurring sources as more providers adopt the Company’s cloud-based subscription services and clinically driven revenue cycle management solutions. Greenway® delivers innovative software and business service solutions to healthcare providers through its PrimeSUITE® platform.
“Our results for the fourth quarter and full year reflect an organization that is successfully reducing its reliance on one-time sales and increasing revenue from more predictable recurring sources while introducing a platform that is gaining increased acceptance among those providers we serve,” said Tee Green, president and chief executive officer of Greenway. “We are encouraged by the continued strong growth of revenue from recurring sources of 28% during our fiscal fourth quarter, when compared to the prior year, and the substantial improvement in overall revenue mix from predictable sources.”
During the 2013 fiscal fourth quarter, Greenway added more than 790 providers to its PrimeSUITE platform, which compares with 425 providers added during the 2013 fiscal third quarter. The number of providers on the Company’s clinically driven revenue cycle management platform grew by nearly 50% sequentially, from the 2013 third quarter to the 2013 fourth quarter, to more than 550.
Greenway generated quarterly revenue of $35.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, which compares with $36.4 million for the prior-year period. For the year ended June 30, 2013, total revenue increased by 9% to $134.8 million from $124.0 million for the year-ago period.
Throughout fiscal 2013, Greenway’s results from operations have been impacted by a shift toward a higher percentage of revenue derived from recurring services such as cloud-based subscription services as well as electronic data interchange and business services including the Company’s rapidly growing clinically driven revenue cycle management solution.
During the 2013 fourth quarter, revenue from recurring sources grew by 28%, year over year, and comprised 57.6% of revenue for the period, up from 43.8% for the prior-year period. For all of 2013, revenue from recurring sources grew by 31%, year over year, and as a percent of revenue increased by 933 basis points to 55.2% from the prior year. Revenue from one-time systems sales and training and consulting services declined by 26% for the 2013 fourth quarter, and by 10% for the fiscal year, when compared to prior-year periods.
For the three months ended June 30, 2013, gross profit was $18.3 million and gross profit margin was 51.5%. These figures compare with gross profit of $21.8 million and gross margin of 60% for the three months ended June 30, 2012. Overall gross profit and gross margin for the 2013 fourth quarter declined from the prior year as a result of lower revenue and gross profit from one-time systems sales and training and consulting services offset by a 28% increase in gross profit from recurring items. For the year ended June 30, 2013, gross profit was $70.4 million, up 3% from $68.1 million for the prior-year period. Gross margin for fiscal year 2013 was 52.2%, which compares with 55.0% for the prior-year period.
Greenway reported a loss from operations of ($2.1 million) for the three months ended June 30, 2013, and ($6.9 million) for fiscal 2013. This compares to operating income of $3.5 million for the 2012 fourth quarter and $4.9 million for fiscal 2012.
For the fiscal 2013 fourth quarter and full year, Greenway had a net loss of ($3.5 million), or (12 cents) per share, and ($5.1 million) or (17 cents) per share, respectively. This compares with net income of $2.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, or seven cents per diluted share for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter and $2.9 million, or 11 cents per diluted share, for fiscal 2012.
As of June 30, 2013, the Company had $11.2 million in cash and short-term investments and no outstanding indebtedness.
Greenway’s non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA, which is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, acquisition-related transaction costs and stock-based compensation, was $2.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013, which compares with $5.9 million for the prior-year period. For fiscal 2013, non-GAAP adjusted EBITDA was $6.7 million, which compares with $12.1 million for fiscal 2012.
Adjusted, or non-GAAP net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2013, was ($2.4 million), or (eight cents) per diluted share, which compares with non-GAAP net income of $3.0 million, or 10 cents per diluted share for the fiscal 2012 fourth quarter. For fiscal 2013, Greenway’s non-GAAP net loss was ($1.3 million), or (five cents) per share, which compares with $5.3 million or 21 cents per diluted share for fiscal 2012.

The following is a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company in describing its financial performance in accordance with U.S. “generally accepted accounting principles” (GAAP). An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures”. While management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors regarding the Company’s operations, investors are reminded to consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not a substitute for, financial performance measures 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 the operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.
Set forth below is a presentation of the Company’s “non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA” and the “non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA Margin” which is non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue:
Set forth below is a reconciliation of the Company’s “Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income” and “Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income per Diluted Share”:
The presentation of non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP net income per share excludes, for all periods, the effect of dividends and accretion related to preferred stock converted to common in February 2012.
The Company reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company’s management believes that investors may wish to consider the impact of certain non-cash or non-recurring items as a supplement to financial performance measures in accordance with GAAP. These items result from facts and circumstances that may vary in frequency and impact on continuing operations. Management also presents results of operations before such items to evaluate operating performance, compare performance against past periods and as a basis for strategic planning. These non-GAAP financial measures provide management with additional means to understand and evaluate operating results and trends by eliminating certain non-cash expenses and other items that management believes might complicate comparisons with prior periods, obscure current trends or reduce the ability to make useful forecasts. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide additional means of evaluating performance, period-over-period. In addition, management understands that some investors and financial analysts find this information useful in analyzing the Company’s financial and operational performance and comparing such performance to peers and competitors.
