Greenway Medical Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: GWAY), which delivers innovative software and business services solutions for ambulatory care providers through its PrimeSUITE® platform, today announced financial results for the three months and six months ended December 31, 2012, as well as a revised outlook for results from operations for fiscal 2013.
“Our results for the second quarter of our fiscal year reflect continued strong growth of recurring revenue as providers adopt our cloud-based services, offset by a decline in revenue related to deployment,” said Tee Green, president and chief executive officer of Greenway®. “We added more than 750 providers to our network during the second quarter, and we are gaining appeal among larger healthcare system accounts — transactions that are more complex and take more time to complete. We believe that the update to our outlook for the remainder of fiscal 2013 reflects an appropriate adjustment to the impact of an increasing percentage of our revenue derived from recurring sources.”
Highlights for the fiscal 2013 second quarter, when compared with the prior-year period, include:
- Revenue growth of 12%, which includes recurring revenue growth of 32%;
- Gross profit growth of 16% results in gross margin expansion of 177 basis points;
- Cash flow from operations growth of 22% to $3.7 million.
For the three months ended December 31, 2012, Greenway generated revenue of $32.7 million, a 12% increase from $29.1 million for the comparable prior-year period. Revenue from recurring sources grew by 32%, and comprised 55% of total revenue for the fiscal 2013 second quarter. This compares with recurring revenue of 47% of total revenue for the prior-year period. The growth in recurring revenue as a percent of total revenue is a function of increased adoption of Greenway’s cloud-based services, including PrimeSUITE, PrimePATIENT® patient portal and PrimeEXCHANGE®, as well as the growth of PrimeRCM®, Greenway’s clinically driven revenue cycle management platform. Greenway’s revenue mix for the second quarter was impacted by a decline in Training and Consulting revenue related to fewer deployments than in the prior-year period. Through the first half of fiscal 2013, Greenway’s revenue has grown by 20%, to $65.5 million, compared with $54.8 million for the first half of fiscal 2012.
Greenway generated gross profit of $17.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, an increase of 16% from $15.0 million for the prior-year period.
Gross profit margin for the fiscal 2013 second quarter improved by 177 basis points, to 53.2%, as a result of growth related to recurring subscription solutions and services, offset by a decline in gross margin for System Sales and Training and Consulting Services. Gross margin for recurring revenue sources grew to 57.8% for the three months ended December 31, 2012, from 49.9% for the prior-year period, as the customer adoption of innovative solutions increased and the Company improved margins on Customer Support Services and EDI and Business Services. Gross margin for System Sales and Training and Consulting Services declined as a result of fewer deployments in the quarter, compared to the prior-year period.
Greenway has earned gross profit of $35.3 million, and overall gross margin has improved to 53.8%, through the six months ended December 31, 2012. This compared with gross profit of $28.3 million, and gross margin of 51.6%, for the first half of the prior fiscal year.
Greenway reported a loss from operations of ($1.8 million) for the fiscal 2013 second quarter, which compares with an operating loss of ($350,000) for the prior-year period. Through six months ended December 31, 2012, Greenway has reported an operating loss of ($2.0 million), which compares with an operating loss of ($900,000) for the prior-year period.
The Company had a net loss of ($985,000), or (three cents) per share, based on a weighted average 30.9 million shares outstanding, for the three months ended December 31, 2012. This compares with a net loss of ($268,000) for the prior-year period. The Company’s results for the three months ended December 31, 2011, reflected income available to common shareholders of $37.8 million, or $1.70 per share based on a weighted average 22 million shares outstanding. This included dividends and accretion related to preferred stock that was converted to common stock in February 2012.
As of December 31, 2012, Greenway had $27.4 million in cash and short-term investments and no outstanding indebtedness.
Greenway generated cash flow from operations of $3.7 million for the fiscal 2013 second quarter, up from $3.0 million for the comparable prior-year period. Through the first six months of fiscal 2013, Greenway generated cash flow from operations of $6.0 million, up from $3.8 million for the comparable period of fiscal 2012.
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 $1.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012, unchanged from the prior-year period, and for both periods non-GAAP EBITDA margin was 4%. Through six months ended December 31, 2012, Greenway’s adjusted EBITDA was $3.9 million, or 6% of revenue, a 75% increase from $2.2 million, or 4% of revenue, for the first half of the prior fiscal year.
Adjusted, or non-GAAP net income (loss), which is defined as net income before stock-based compensation, acquisition-related transaction costs and amortization of purchased intangibles and any estimated tax impact related to these items, was $(41,000), or (zero) cents per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2012. This compares with non-GAAP net income of $231,000, or one cent per diluted share for the second quarter of fiscal 2012. For the six months ended December 31, 2012, Greenway’s non-GAAP net income was $843,000, or two cents per share, which compares with adjusted net income of $512,000 for the first half of the prior fiscal year, or two cents per share.
The GAAP financial measures most directly comparable to each non-GAAP financial measure used, and a reconciliation of the differences between each non-GAAP financial measure and the comparable GAAP financial measure, are included in this press release following the condensed financial statements.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Comparable GAAP Measures
(Unaudited, in thousands, except share amounts)
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.
Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA

Explanation of Non-GAAP Measures
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.
Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, acquisition-related transaction costs and stock-based compensation. It is presented as a supplemental measure of the Company’s performance. However, Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s results as reported under GAAP.
Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income before stock-based compensation, acquisition-related transaction costs and amortization of purchased intangibles and any tax impact related to these items.
Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income Per Diluted Share is defined as Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income divided by the weighted average diluted shares outstanding. Management considers all of these non-GAAP financial measures to be useful indicators of the Company’s performance and a measure of historical trends.
The following items are excluded from non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income and related Per Diluted Share financial measures referenced above, and the reasons therefore are:
- Stock-based compensation — Excluded because these are non-cash expenses that management does not consider useful in assessing ongoing operating results or performance of the business, and also because the amount of the expense is not totally within the Company’s control since it is based on factors such as stock price, volatility and interest rates which may be unrelated to the Company’s performance during the period the expense is incurred.
- Amortization of purchased intangibles — Purchased intangibles are amortized over their estimated useful life and generally cannot be influenced after the acquisition. Accordingly, this item is not considered by management in making operating decisions. Thus, including such charges does not accurately reflect the performance for the period in which such charge is incurred.
- Acquisition-related transaction costs — Transaction costs associated with acquisitions are non-recurring and related specifically to a subject acquisition. Accordingly, management does not believe that they reflect the underlying performance of ongoing business operations for the period incurred.
SaaS companies can greatly expand revenue potential by pushing beyond their own borders. The challenge is how to do this without degrading service quality. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Adam Rogers, Managing Director at Anexia, discussed how IaaS providers with a global presence and both virtual and dedicated infrastructure can help companies expand their service footprint with low “go-to-market” costs.
