CHICAGO, July 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq:MDRX) today announced its preliminary financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

The Company expects bookings(1) in the second quarter of 2015 to be in a range of $255-$260 million, a record for the second quarter. Bookings were $233 million in the second quarter of 2014, or growth of between 9 and 12 percent year-over-year and an acceleration from the 6 percent year-over-year bookings growth reported in the first quarter of 2015.

Allscripts expects preliminary second quarter 2015 revenue to be in a range of $350-$353 million. This compares with total revenue of $351 million in the second quarter of 2014 and $335 million in the first quarter of 2015.

In addition, the Company expects second quarter 2015 Adjusted EBITDA(2) to be in a range of $59-$62 million. This compares with Adjusted EBITDA of $53 million in the second quarter of 2014 and $50 million in the first quarter of 2015.    

Finally, Allscripts expects second quarter 2015 non-GAAP earnings per share(3) to be approximately $0.12 compared with $0.09 in the second quarter of 2014.  Second quarter 2015 GAAP loss per share is expected to be approximately $0.01 compared with a loss per share of $0.09 in the second quarter of 2014.

Preliminary results for the second quarter of 2015 exceed First Call consensus estimates for revenue, Adjusted EBITDA and GAAP and non-GAAP earnings per share.

“Our strong preliminary results across all key financial metrics reflect continued improvement in Allscripts execution across the enterprise on behalf of our clients,” said Paul M. Black, Allscripts President and Chief Executive Officer. “Sales growth in the second quarter accelerated compared with the first quarter based on improving performance within acute and international markets. Ambulatory solutions and growth in Allscripts payer and life sciences business helped drive the year-over-year bookings growth. Revenue improved on a sequential basis, driven by growth in both recurring and non-recurring revenue. We look forward to discussing our results in more detail in a few weeks.”

The preliminary financial information presented in this press release is based on expectations and may be adjusted as a result of, among other things, completion of customary quarterly review and audit procedures. Management plans to discuss its complete second quarter results and outlook as scheduled after market close on Tuesday, August 4, 2015.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Allscripts reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. To supplement this information, Allscripts presents non-GAAP net income on a per share basis and Adjusted EBITDA which are considered non-GAAP financial measures under Section 101 of Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

  • Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure and consists of GAAP net income (loss) as reported and adjusts for: tax provision (benefit); interest expense and other income, net; stock-based compensation expense; depreciation and amortization; deferred revenue and other adjustments; non-recurring and transaction-related costs; and non-cash asset impairment charges.
  • Non-GAAP net income on a per share basis consists of GAAP net income/(loss) as reported, and adds back acquisition-related amortization, stock-based compensation expense, non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs, non-cash charges to interest expense and other, and non-cash asset impairment charges, in each case net of any related tax effects. Non-GAAP net income on a per share basis also includes a tax rate alignment adjustment.

Management believes that non-GAAP net income on a per share basis and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the underlying performance of Allscripts business operations. Acquisition accounting adjustments made in accordance with GAAP can make it difficult to make meaningful comparisons of the underlying operations of the business without considering the non-GAAP adjustments provided and discussed herein. Management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting, as it believes that these measures are indicative of core operating results. In addition, management may use non-GAAP net income and/or Adjusted EBITDA to measure achievement under Allscripts stock and cash incentive compensation plans. Note, however, that non-GAAP net income on a per share basis and Adjusted EBITDA are performance measures only, and they do not provide any measure of cash flow or liquidity. Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Allscripts results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.
