Change Healthcare Inc. Reports Second Quarter Fiscal 2022 Financial Results

November 3, 2021 at 12:39 PM EDT

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 3, 2021-- Change Healthcare Inc. (Nasdaq: CHNG) (the “Company” or “Change Healthcare”), a leading healthcare technology company, today reported financial results for the second quarter of fiscal year 2022 ended September 30, 2021.

“Our results this quarter continue to demonstrate solid execution of our growth strategy and the underlying strength and momentum in our business,” said Neil de Crescenzo, president and chief executive officer. “We continue to create value for our payer, provider and consumer customers by delivering innovative and transformative solutions. Along with our customers, we remained focused on lowering cost, enhancing access, and improving outcomes for the benefit of everyone in the healthcare system.”

Fiscal 2022 Second Quarter Highlights:

Financial Summary

  • Total revenue of $826.8 million, including solutions revenue of $774.2 million
  • Net loss of $36.4 million, resulting in net loss of $0.11 per diluted share
  • Adjusted net income of $114.3 million, resulting in adjusted net income of $0.35 per diluted share
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $246.5 million

Recent Business Highlights

  • Introduced Change Healthcare Stratus Imaging PACS, our new, comprehensive cloud-native solution, which is now in production with standalone radiology groups, with contracts to deploy in hospital-affiliated practices in 2022.
  • Added 118 new products to our Change Healthcare Marketplace in the second quarter, which now offers 198 products representing API, software, and hardware products from all parts of our portfolio.
  • Continued to establish new data solutions partnerships with major academic medical research centers, bringing the total to more than 75 partnerships developed to improve health equity through our Data Science as a Service offering and other solutions.
  • Continued momentum with our electronic prior authorization offering, which uses AI and predictive analytics to automate the prior authorization process and drive transparency between healthcare constituents to help the industry deliver the right care, in the right place, at the right time in a transparent manner.

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 resulting in fair value adjustments to various assets and liabilities, including deferred revenue, goodwill, and intangible assets.

Financial Results for Second Quarter of Fiscal 2022

  • Solutions revenue was $774.2 million, compared to $705.9 million for second quarter of fiscal 2021. Solutions revenue includes the impact of fair value adjustments to deferred revenue resulting from the McKesson exit, which reduced revenue recognized by $3.3 million and $38.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2022 and 2021, respectively. Total revenue, which includes postage revenue, was $826.8 million compared to $755.9 million in the same period of the prior year. Solutions revenue for the current period reflects the negative $6.0 million impact during the quarter from the Capacity Management divestiture which closed in fiscal year 2021. Solutions revenue in the current period was positively impacted by volume recovery and incremental revenue from COVID-19 vaccines and new sales.
  • Net loss was $36.4 million, resulting in net loss of $0.11 per diluted share, compared with net loss of $42.6 million and $0.13 per diluted share, respectively, for the second quarter of fiscal 2021.
  • Adjusted net income was $114.3 million, resulting in adjusted net income of $0.35 per diluted share, compared with adjusted net income of $103.5 million and $0.32 per diluted share, respectively, for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. Net loss per diluted share and adjusted net income per diluted share for the current period is based on 324 million shares compared to 321 million shares in the prior year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $246.5 million, compared with $231.8 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2021. The results in the current quarter reflect the aforementioned revenue growth, partially offset by investments to support business initiatives.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Highlights

Net cash provided by operating activities was $261.4 million and free cash flow was $134.5 million, in each case, for the six months ended September 30, 2021. For the six months ended September 30, 2020, net cash provided by operating activities and free cash flow was $296.6 million and $170.1 million, respectively.

Net cash provided by operating activities and free cash flow each are 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 increased by $4.4 million in the six months ended September 30, 2021, increasing free cash flow for the period by that amount, and decreased by $1.4 million for the six months ended September 30, 2020.

The Company ended the quarter with approximately $80.4 million of cash and cash equivalents, and approximately $4,662.4 million of total debt. During the second quarter, the Company repaid $100.0 million on its Term Loan Facility, and repaid an additional $60.0 million subsequent to the end of the quarter.

Update on Proposed Merger with OptumInsight

On January 5, 2021, OptumInsight, a diversified health services company and part of UnitedHealth Group, and Change Healthcare agreed to combine (the “Merger”). Under the terms of the merger agreement, UnitedHealth Group, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Change Healthcare common stock for $25.75 per share in cash. The Boards of Directors of both UnitedHealth Group and Change Healthcare have unanimously approved the terms of the Merger. At a special meeting held April 13, 2021, Change Healthcare stockholders voted to approve the Merger. Of the approximately 222 million shares voted, 99.9% voted in favor of the adoption of the merger agreement. The closing of the Merger is subject to applicable regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions.

As previously disclosed, on March 24, 2021, the Company and UnitedHealth Group each received a request for additional information and documentary materials (collectively, the “Second Request”) from the Department of Justice (“DOJ”) in connection with the DOJ’s review of the Merger, and on August 7, 2021, the parties entered into a timing agreement (the “Timing Agreement”) with the DOJ pursuant to which they agreed not to consummate the Merger before 120 days following the date on which both parties certified substantial compliance with the Second Request.

Both the Company and UnitedHealth Group have now certified substantial compliance with the Second Request. On November 1, 2021, the Company and UnitedHealth Group entered into an amendment to the Timing Agreement with the DOJ pursuant to which they agreed not to consummate the Merger before 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time on February 22, 2022 (subject to extension in certain limited circumstances relating to the potential unavailability of certain requested data), unless they have received written notice from the DOJ prior to such date that the DOJ has closed its investigation. The parties have been working cooperatively with the DOJ and will continue to do so.

Guidance

Due to the proposed transaction with OptumInsight, we will no longer be providing financial guidance.

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 regards 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.
