November 4, 2020 at 4:05 PM EST

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 4, 2020-- Change Healthcare Inc. (Nasdaq: CHNG) (the “Company” or “Change Healthcare”), a leading independent healthcare technology company, today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2021 ended Sept. 30, 2020.

“Our second quarter results reflect continued improvement in both healthcare utilization in the U.S. and underlying momentum across our business. The strong support of our customers in expanding their business with us, as well as the penetration of new solutions with both existing and new customers, contributed to our strong results,” said Neil de Crescenzo, president and chief executive officer. “The pandemic has underscored the need for greater efficiency, improved access and enhanced consumer experience across the healthcare continuum. Change Healthcare remains committed to continuing to deliver value to our customers and shareholders by leveraging the strength of our platform, which has the scale, data intelligence, connectivity, interoperability, and user experience capabilities to accelerate innovation and performance.”

Fiscal 2021 Second Quarter Highlights:

Financial Summary

  • Total revenue of $755.9 million, including solutions revenue of $705.9 million
  • Net loss of $42.6 million, resulting in net loss of $0.13 per diluted share
  • Adjusted net income of $103.5 million, resulting in adjusted net income of $0.32 per diluted share
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $231.8 million

Recent Business Highlights

  • Announced a new consumer engagement and revenue cycle management solution for pharmacies that makes it easier for consumers to get COVID-19 testing in their local pharmacies. Pharmacies can now electronically bill for COVID-19 tests just as easily as they bill for prescriptions and flu shots.
  • Integrated our SmartPay™ Consumer Payment solution with Epic MyChart and encrypted device integration within Hyperspace, allowing providers to offer their patients a wide range of payment options––letting them easily pay their healthcare bills how and when they want, with Change Healthcare providing phone and mail-in payment channels to give providers a multi-channel payment solution.
  • Acquired Nucleus.io, a leader in the development of advanced, fully enabled, cloud-native imaging and workflow technology including its market-leading medical image exchange solution currently utilized by over 7,500 organizations across the United States.
  • Acquired Prometheus Analytics®, the industry-standard for value-based care reimbursement models based on medical episodes of care. Prometheus is used by payer-provider collaborations nationwide, uniquely providing a proven and fair blueprint for value-based payments.
  • Announced innovative new Artificial Intelligence models, trained by expert physicians, which extract meaningful diagnostic information from text in EHRs. The first application of this technology is within our InterQual AutoReview™ solution, which automates medical necessity reviews using real-time data from EHRs.

Impact of McKesson Exit on Comparability of Results

On March 10, 2020, Change Healthcare Inc. acquired the interest in Change Healthcare LLC (“the Joint Venture”) previously held by McKesson. The transaction resulted in Change Healthcare Inc. acquiring control of the Joint Venture, which was accounted for as a business combination and resulted in a new basis of accounting, and all of the business activities of the Joint Venture are now reported by the Company. Change Healthcare Inc. financial statements for periods prior to the acquisition were primarily limited to the equity method investment in the Joint Venture, and therefore did not reflect revenue, adjusted EBITDA, and other key measures. As a result, Change Healthcare does not consider comparison of the current operating results to the reported results of Change Healthcare Inc. for the same period in the prior year to be meaningful, and instead will compare our current quarter results to the prior quarter results of the Joint Venture, which have been recast to reflect the current segment structure, including the allocation of all corporate costs to the business units. This press release includes supplemental information for the recast results of the Joint Venture for the three and six months ended September 30, 2019. The recast results for all quarters in fiscal year 2019 and fiscal year 2020 are available in the appendix to the earnings presentation and will be included as an exhibit to Change Healthcare Inc.’s Form 10-Q.

Financial Results

  • Solutions revenue was $705.9 million for the current period, inclusive of the impact of the fair value adjustment to deferred revenue resulting from the McKesson exit, which reduced revenue recognized in the quarter by $38.9 million. Total revenue, which includes postage revenue, was $755.9 million. For the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the Joint Venture reported $738.7 million of solutions revenue and $795.8 million of total revenue. Solutions revenue for the current period, including the $15.5 million net favorable impact of acquisitions and divestitures, was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Partially offsetting this impact were new sales volumes across all three segments.
  • Net loss was $42.6 million, resulting in net loss of $0.13 per diluted share. For the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the Joint Venture reported net loss of $0.1 million or $0.00 per diluted unit. Net loss for the current period was negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, partially offset by new sales volumes, productivity improvements and cost initiatives.
  • Adjusted net income was $103.5 million, resulting in adjusted net income of $0.32 per diluted share. For the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the Joint Venture reported adjusted net income of $86.6 million or $0.27 per diluted unit. Net loss per diluted share and adjusted net income per diluted share for the current period is based on 321 million shares compared to 324 million units in the prior year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $231.8 million for the current period. For the second quarter of fiscal 2020, the Joint Venture reported adjusted EBITDA of $217.7 million. The results in the current quarter reflect approximately $15 million in lower SMG&A expenses primarily related to a one-time change in benefits policy, reduced healthcare benefits as a result of lower employee healthcare utilization, and timing related to deferred hiring as a result of COVID-19. The majority of these impacts are expected to normalize in the 3rd fiscal quarter.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Highlights

Net cash provided by operating activities was $296.6 million, free cash flow was $170.1 million, and adjusted free cash flow was $210.7 million, in each case, for the six months ended September 30, 2020. For the six months ended September 30, 2019, the Joint Venture reported net cash provided by operating activities, free cash flow, and adjusted free cash flow of $223.9 million, $94.0 million, and $173.9 million, respectively.

Net cash provided by operating activities, free cash flow, and adjusted free cash flow each is affected by pass-thru funds we receive from certain pharmaceutical industry participants in advance of our obligation to remit these funds to participating retail pharmacies. Such pass-thru funds on hand decreased by $1.4 million in the six months ended September 30, 2020, reducing free cash flow for the period by that amount, and increased by $12.9 million for the Joint Venture for the six months ended September 30, 2019. The increase in cash flow from operations, free cash flow, and adjusted free cash flow in the current period primarily resulted from improved working capital driven by strong collections.

The Company ended the quarter with approximately $167.5 million of cash and cash equivalents, and approximately $5,014.2 million of total debt. During the current period, the Company repaid $50.0 million on its Term Loan Facility. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the Company repaid an additional $75.0 million on its Term Loan Facility.

Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2021 Guidance

Due to uncertainty around the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company will only be providing quarterly guidance.

For the third quarter of fiscal year 2021, the Company expects solutions revenue to be in the range of $725 million to $745 million, which includes a reduction of $24 million in revenue resulting from an adjustment of deferred revenue to fair value with no impact on adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of $215 million to $235 million, and adjusted EPS to be in the range of $0.28 - $0.33 per share.

The third quarter fiscal year 2021 outlook reflects the Company’s current expectation that the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to be gradually reduced throughout the remainder of the fiscal year as healthcare utilization trends improve and is also subject to risk factors such as those described in the Forward-Looking Statements below.

Supplemental Forward-Looking Expectations and Assumptions for Fiscal 2021

While the Company is not providing guidance for the full fiscal year 2021 due to the uncertainty of COVID-19, the Company has determined to provide the following supplemental expectations and assumptions that it has made regarding its fiscal year 2021 results to provide further transparency to investors into the Company’s current beliefs regarding fiscal year 2021, all of which are subject to change:

  • Expect free cash flow of $250 million to $300 million.
  • Capital expenditures of approximately 7.5% - 8.0% of solutions revenue excluding the impact of fair value adjustments and excluding integration related capital expenditures.
  • Integration related operating expense for the fiscal year of approximately $80 million and integration related capital expenditures of approximately $20 million.
  • Interest expense in the range of $245 million to $255 million.
  • Adjusted effective tax rate of approximately 25%.
  • Basic and fully diluted shares outstanding of 321 million.1

A reconciliation of the forward-looking third quarter fiscal year 2021 adjusted EBITDA outlook to net income, adjusted effective tax rate outlook for our effective tax rate outlook and free cash flow outlook to cash provided by (used in) operating activities cannot be provided without unreasonable effort because of the inherent difficulty of accurately forecasting the occurrence and financial impact of the various adjusting items necessary for such reconciliation that have not yet occurred, are out of our control, or cannot be reasonably predicted. For the same reasons, Change Healthcare is unable to assess the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could have a material impact on its future financial results in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”).

_______________________________

1 Diluted shares outstanding includes the impact of the minimum issuable shares attributable to the TEUs and excludes the effect of potential shares that would be antidilutive to Diluted EPS, based on expected GAAP Net Income (Loss) for FY2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In the company’s earnings releases, prepared remarks, conference calls, slide presentations and webcasts, there may be use or discussion of non-GAAP financial measures. We believe such measures provide supplemental information to investors with regard to our operating performance and assist investors’ ability to compare our financial results to those of other companies in the same industry. The GAAP financial measure most directly comparable to each non-GAAP financial measure used or discussed, and a reconciliation of the differences between the comparable GAAP financial measure and each non-GAAP financial measure are included in this press release after the consolidated financial statements. These non-GAAP financial measures are calculated and presented on the basis of methodologies other than in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered only as supplemental to, and not as superior to, financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be defined and calculated differently by others in the same industry.
