Greenway Reports Third-Quarter 2012 Results
Record Revenue of $32.9 Million Increased 52% YOY
Gross Margin of 55% for Quarter
Operating Income Margin of 7% for Quarter
Adjusted EBITDA Margin of 12% for Quarter
May 10, 2012, Carrollton, GA — Greenway Medical Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: GWAY), provider of the integrated electronic health record (EHR), practice management and interoperability solution PrimeSUITE®, today announced its financial results for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2012.
“We are very pleased with our third-quarter results. We believe these results demonstrate the significant momentum in the business, illustrate the leverage in our model and show the tangible results that revenue mix and our margin-improvement initiatives have on gross margins,” said Tee Green, Greenway® president and chief executive officer. “Our strategies for growth and innovation are expected to continue driving sustainable revenue, earnings and cash flow growth for 2012 and beyond.”
- Third-quarter and YTD total revenue was $32.9 million and $87.6 million respectively, representing increases of 52% and 45% over the respective year-ago periods.
- Third-quarter EPS of $0.06 per fully diluted share.
- Adjusted EBITDA was $4.0 million for the third quarter of FY2012. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure that is described and reconciled to net loss below and is not a substitute for the GAAP equivalent.
Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2012, was $32.9 million, a 52% increase as compared to revenue of $21.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. For the nine months ended March 31, 2012, total revenue was $87.6 million, a 45% increase over revenue of $60.4 million for the year-ago period.
Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2012, was $18.0 million, compared to $11.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2011. Gross profit for the nine months ended March 31, 2012, was $46.3 million, compared to $32.2 million for the year-ago period. Cost of goods sold in third-quarter 2012 included $826,000 increased amortization of acquired technology and software development costs as various projects are now available for market.
Operating income was $2.2 million and $1.3 million for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2012, respectively. This compares to operating losses of ($287,000) and ($548,000) for the comparable periods of the prior year.
Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2012, was $1.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted share. Net income for the quarter reflects an effective tax rate of 41% including the effect of expensing miscellaneous payments to various state jurisdictions applicable to previous years. The Company estimates its effective tax rate for FY2012 will be approximately 40%. Comparison to the year-ago quarter is not particularly meaningful for net income or earnings per share, since there was a reversal of the full valuation allowance previously provided on net deferred tax assets, resulting in a $31.0 million tax benefit for the period.
As of March 31, 2012, the Company had $36.4 million in cash and short-term investments and no outstanding indebtedness.
Adjusted EBITDA for the three months and nine months ended March 31, 2012 was $4.0 million and $6.2 million respectively, as compared to $444,000 and $1.4 million for the comparable periods of the prior year.
Non-GAAP adjusted net income for the three months ended March 31, 2012, was $1.8 million, or $0.08 per diluted share. For the nine months ended March 31, 2012, non-GAAP adjusted net income was $2.3 million or $0.14 per diluted share. Because of the effect of reversing the full valuation allowance on deferred tax assets in March 2011 and the effect of accretion on preferred stock, which is now converted to common, the Company believes non-GAAP adjusted net income for the comparable prior periods of FY11 would not be particularly meaningful to investors.
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 after the condensed financial statements. See the Investors section of Company’s website at www.greenwayhealth.com for earnings press releases containing such non-GAAP reconciliations.

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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“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 operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.
Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA (Unaudited, in thousands)
Set forth below is a presentation of the Company’s “non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA” and the “non-GAAP Adjusted Margin” which is non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of total revenue.
Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income (Unaudited, in thousands except share and per share amounts)
Set forth below is a reconciliation of the Company’s “Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income” and “Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income per Diluted Share.”
Explanation of Non-GAAP Measures
The Company reports its financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“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 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 income before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, acquisition 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. In addition, in evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that the adjustments may vary from period to period and in the future the Company will incur expenses such as those used in calculating these measures. The Company’s presentation of this measure should not be construed as an inference that future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items.
Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income is defined as net income before stock-based compensation, acquisition 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 therefor 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 because 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 Costs – 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.
