Authentidate Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Oct. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq:ADAT), a provider of secure web-based revenue cycle management applications and telehealth products and services for healthcare organizations, today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full-year periods ended June 30, 2015. In addition, the company announced that due diligence related to its combination with AEON Clinical Laboratories continues to progress, and cross selling between AEON’s clinical solutions and Authentidate’s telehealth delivery solutions is continuing.

Ian Bonnet, Chief Executive Officer of Authentidate, stated, “Efforts to advance the planned merger with AEON continue and we are pleased with our progress to date. Bringing these two companies together is expected to increase our market opportunities while providing our customers with an expanded product set to support their patients’ healthcare management needs. Under our first joint solution for Houston Clinics, Palm Recovery, a sister company of AEON, will be equipped to provide mental health and drug and alcohol rehabilitation services utilizing video chat from a computer and our web-based telehealth application. We also recently announced that we are partnering with AEON to nationally launch Cancer Detect Profile®, a 38-gene cancer genetic test coupled with telehealth-based genetic counseling for the prescribing physicians. AEON's genetic counselors will provide counseling to prescribing physicians utilizing video chat from the clinician's computer and our web-based telehealth application and reporting from our telehealth solution.”

“We have also been diligently working to more directly align our business with the commercial healthcare market over the last few months,” continued Bonnet. “As a result, we have implemented a number of changes to our business plan with the ultimate goal to increase revenues and positive cash flow from operations, including a recalibration of marketing and sales efforts that have already resulted in growth from existing customers and sales to new customers. These changes include cost reductions from reducing our workforce and use of consultants that we made in the third quarter of fiscal 2015 and additional workforce reductions through August 31, 2015. These reductions are expected to reduce operating expenses by approximately $4.2 million on an annualized basis. We have also taken actions to realign our data center operations for an expected annualized cost reduction of $203,000 and have executed an agreement with our landlord to relocate our corporate offices, which is expected to result in annualized savings of $372,000.”

Mr. Bonnet concluded, “The synergies we expect to achieve from our business combination and our restructuring efforts will come in the form of cost reductions as well as an expanded product line-up to be made available to a broader base of customers. We believe the AEON combination represents a significant opportunity for our shareholders and we are excited about the future prospects for the combined business.”

Conference Call Details

Management will schedule a conference call upon completing the definitive merger agreement with AEON Clinical Laboratories. Details regarding the conference call will be provided at that time.

Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 were $521,000 compared to $1.1 million for the prior year period. The decrease in revenues for the quarter is due primarily to lower telehealth equipment sales and service revenues and lower transaction volumes from our hosted software services.

Operating loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 was $2.1 million compared to $2.1 million for the prior year period. Net loss for the quarter was $3.1 million, or $0.08 per share, compared to $2.1 million, or $0.06 per share, for the prior year period. These results reflect higher legal and inventory adjustment expenses which offset lower selling expenses and other savings and do not give full effect to the impact of our recent work force reductions and other cost-savings measures implemented beginning in March 2015. These results also reflect higher non-cash expenses for debt extinguishment and debt discount amortization expenses.

Year-to-Date Financial Results

Revenues for the twelve months ended June 30, 2015 were $3.7 million compared to $5.6 million for the prior year period. The decrease in revenues for the period is due primarily to lower telehealth equipment sales and lower transaction volumes from our hosted software services.  

Operating loss for the twelve months ended June 30, 2015 was $8.7 million compared to $7.1 million for the prior year period. Net loss for the twelve month period was $9.7 million, or $0.25 per share, compared to $7.1 million, or $0.26 per share, for the prior year period. These results reflect the same trends as the quarter and higher personnel, severance and consulting expenses for the period prior to our cost-savings measures. The prior year period also includes a state payroll tax credit of approximately $175,000 which reduced SG&A expenses for the prior year period.

Balance Sheet

As of June 30, 2015 cash and cash equivalents were approximately $247,000. Following the end of the quarter, we have extended the term of certain short-term notes and added new short-term debt financing resulting in gross proceeds of approximately $1.2 million.
