(NASDAQ: STRM), a leading provider of knowledge management solutions for healthcare providers, today announced that it has signed letters of intent to purchase two companies to augment its existing solutions across the entire patient experience. The transactions are subject to the negotiation and execution of definitive acquisition agreements and the satisfaction of typical and customary closing conditions, including approval of the respective Board of Directors of the Company and the targets and the targets’ shareholders. There can be no assurance as to whether or when the acquisitions may be completed or as to the actual terms of the acquisitions.

The transaction expected to close first in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2013 would add patient access and scheduling capabilities. The target company sells these solutions generally under a perpetual license model, however Streamline intends to transition this revenue stream into a SaaS-based model much like the Company has done with that of Meta Health Technology, a company Streamline Health acquired in 2012. The target company currently has 29 clients, only 9 of whom are Streamline clients. For the twelve months ended June 30, 2013 total revenues were $3.9 million, of which $3.2 million were recurring. The letter of intent provides that at closing Streamline would pay approximately $6.5 million in cash for the target company.

The second transaction, which is in the due diligence stage, is expected to close in the fiscal fourth quarter of 2013 or in the fiscal first quarter of 2014, and would add additional financial and operational analytics to Streamline Health’s existing suite of solutions. The target company sells these solutions today as a SaaS-based model. The company currently has 35 clients, none of whom are Streamline clients today. The letter of intent provides that at closing Streamline Health anticipates paying approximately $13.75 million in a combination of cash and shares of STRM common stock.

“We are constantly seeking to improve and expand the SaaS-based solutions we offer across the entire patient experience. Adding patient access and scheduling solutions, along with additional financial and operational analytics, would give us greater ability to meet the growing needs of our clients,” stated Robert E. Watson, chief executive officer of Streamline Health. “The addition of new client relationships through these acquisitions would also provide cross selling opportunities for our existing suite of solutions.”

The Company has agreed in principle to the final earn-out payment for its acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Interpoint Partners, LLC that was completed in December of 2011. The Company agreed to pay the seller an additional $3.0 million of aggregate consideration in satisfaction of the earn-out obligation, consisting of $1.3 million in cash, 400,000 shares of Company common stock and an unsecured, fully subordinated three-year note in the amount of $900,000. This represents the final payment for Streamline Health’s most popular solution – OpportunityAnyWare™ business analytics.

The following statements are based on Streamline Health’s current expectations. These statements contain forward-looking statements and company estimates, and actual results may differ materially. Streamline Health assumes no duty to update any forward-looking statements made in this press release.

In the third quarter of 2013, the Company’s sales organization was successful in its efforts to shift a large license transaction in its quarterly forecast to a SaaS model sales opportunity, a strategy that Streamline Health continues to emphasize with its client base. Given this change in projected license terms, the Company expects to report Q3 2013 revenue of approximately $6.7 million. Bookings were up approximately 19% over the previous quarter, and bookings plus renewals in the period were approximately $10.0 million. Total backlog increased from $51.9 million in Q2 2013 to approximately $55.0 million in Q3 2013.

Excluding any possible impact of the two proposed acquisitions, and based on current business trends Streamline Health anticipates that net revenues for 2013 will be in the range of $29.0 million to $31.0 million, approximately 80% of which will be recurring revenue, and for fiscal year 2014, will be in the range of $35.0 million to $37.0 million, respectively. This represents organic revenue growth of 20% for 2014 compared to 2013. For 2014, the Company anticipates Adjusted EBITDA in the range of $6.0 million to $8.0 million.
