CPSI (CPSI ), a community healthcare solutions company, today announced results for the fourth quarter and twelve months ended December 31, 2016.

The Company also announced that its Board of Directors has declared a quarterly cash dividend of twenty-five cents ($0.25) per share, payable on March 10, 2017, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on February 23, 2017. This quarterly cash dividend is consistent with the variable dividend policy approved by the Company’s Board of Directors and previously announced on August 4, 2016.

Total revenues for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2016, were $64.6 million, compared with total revenues of $44.2 million for the prior-year fourth quarter. Net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, was $2.0 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared with net income of $3.4 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. Cash provided by operations for the fourth quarter was $4.7 million, compared with $4.6 million for the prior-year period.

Total revenues for the year ended December 31, 2016, were $267.3 million, compared with total revenues of $182.2 million for the prior year. Net income for the year ended December 31, 2016, was $3.9 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, compared with $18.3 million, or $1.62 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2015. Cash provided by operations for 2016 was $2.1 million, compared with $30.9 million for the prior year.

"The fourth quarter of 2016 marks decent progress toward our growth and profitability goals," said Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI. "The expected escalation in bookings has started to come to fruition with 16 new Thrive hospital system sales in the fourth quarter and with TruBridge and Rycan both reaching their highest quarterly booking levels to date. Considering the headwinds that CPSI - and many others in our industry - faced over the last 12 months with dissipating government mandates and new competitive dynamics, we believe the level of sales achieved in the fourth quarter is an indication of momentum starting to take shape.

"By addressing the fundamental priorities of our rural and community hospital clients, we are having success in improving their overall financial health. We recognize our role goes beyond selling products - we combine this foundation with consulting and services support to augment our clients’ back office resources and capabilities. Understanding the unique needs of this market led to the record TruBridge and Rycan bookings in the fourth quarter of 2016 of $6.4 million and $1.4 million, respectively.

"2016 was a year of many firsts for CPSI, and our strong finish in the fourth quarter of 2016 was driven by our solid track record in community healthcare, proven solutions and a collaborative approach with our clients. The value of this long-standing commitment from CPSI and our expanded family of healthcare IT companies is resonating across our market with favorable results. This progression in sales, combined with our stable recurring revenue base, provide us with greater confidence in our growth prospects for 2017," added Douglas.

Commenting on the Company’s financial performance for the quarter, Matt Chambless, chief financial officer of CPSI, stated, "Our fourth quarter results tell a continuing story of stabilized financial position, cash flows and profitability. Working capital remains stable, operating cash flows were strong yet again despite expected holiday-driven receivables expansion, and gross profit was in line with our internal expectations. However, unexpected operating expenses limited our ability to convert modest sequential gross profit growth into bottom line growth as two hospital closures drove bad debt expense higher, and health claims were elevated compared with the third quarter of 2016. Despite the higher operating expense, we saw growth in both GAAP and Non-GAAP EPS. Adjusted EBITDA declined primarily due to decreased NOL utilization as that measure, subject to annual IRS limitations, is naturally front-weighted as NOLs are consumed as we generate taxable income throughout the year.

"Total recurring revenues were $216.5 million for 2016, and we expect to reasonably grow that number in 2017. Non-recurring revenues are expected to be driven primarily by new hospital system installation revenue in 2017. As of today, our current installation schedule for Thrive represents non-recurring revenue equal to what we accomplished in all of 2016. With positive indicators for both recurring and non-recurring revenues, we are well positioned for revenue and profitability growth during 2017," said Chambless.

"Improving the health and vitality of the communities we serve is what drives CPSI every day," added Douglas. "The breadth of solutions across our family of companies and a stronger market presence have allowed us to extend our reach beyond small and rural hospitals to the broader community. To continue our journey, we have now expanded beyond healthcare IT and started helping these communities in the transformation to new reimbursement and value-based care payment models. The CPSI Rural Accountable Care Organization ("ACO") program, powered by Caravan Health, will pave the way with the proven tools, support and resources needed in small and rural communities throughout the United States. Layering over this program, we will offer our future Analytics solution together with new services that are geared toward managing the health of the community. We believe this program will deliver long-term value to CPSI and to our clients in the year ahead and beyond."

A 30-day online replay will be available approximately one hour following the conclusion of the live webcast.

Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We report our financial results in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or "GAAP." However, management believes that, in order to properly understand our short-term and long-term financial and operational trends, investors may wish to consider the impact of certain non-cash or non-recurring items, when used as a supplement to financial performance measures that are prepared in accordance with GAAP. These items result from facts and circumstances that vary in frequency and impact on continuing operations. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures in order to evaluate the operating performance of the Company and compare it against past periods, make operating decisions, and serve as a basis for strategic planning. These non-GAAP financial measures provide management with additional means to understand and evaluate the operating results and trends in our ongoing business by eliminating certain non-cash expenses and other items that management believes might otherwise make comparisons of our ongoing business with prior periods more difficult, obscure trends in ongoing operations, or reduce management’s ability to make useful forecasts. In addition, management understands that some investors and financial analysts find these non-GAAP financial measures helpful in analyzing our financial and operational performance and comparing this performance to our peers and competitors.

As such, to supplement the GAAP information provided, we present in this press release the following non-GAAP financial measures: Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP net income, and Non-GAAP earnings per share ("EPS").

We calculate each of these non-GAAP financial measures as follows:

-- Adjusted EBITDA - Adjusted EBITDA consists of GAAP net income (loss) as reported and adjusts for: (i) deferred revenue and other adjustments arising from purchase allocation adjustments related to the Healthland acquisition; (ii) depreciation; (iii) amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets; (iv) stock-based compensation; (v) non-recurrent expenses and transaction-related costs; (vi) interest expense and other, net; and (vii) the provision for income taxes, plus the cash benefits derived from the utilization of net operating loss carryforwards acquired in the Healthland acquisition.

-- Non-GAAP net income - Non-GAAP net income consists of GAAP net income (loss) as reported and adjusts for (i) deferred revenue and other adjustments arising from purchase allocation adjustments related to the Healthland acquisition; (ii) amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets; (iii) stock-based compensation; (iv) non-recurrent expenses and transaction-related costs; (v) non-cash charges to interest expense and other; and (vi) the total tax effect of items (i) through (v). Adjustments to Non-GAAP net income also includes the after-tax effect of non-deductible transaction-related costs.

-- Non-GAAP EPS - Non-GAAP EPS consists of Non-GAAP net income, as defined above, divided by weighted average shares outstanding (diluted) in the applicable period.

Certain of the items excluded or adjusted to arrive at these non-GAAP financial measures are described below:

-- Deferred revenue and other adjustments - Deferred revenue and other adjustments includes acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustments, which reflect the fair value adjustments to deferred revenues acquired in business acquisitions. The fair value of deferred revenue represents an amount equivalent to the estimated cost plus an appropriate profit margin, to perform services related to the acquiree’s software and product support, which assumes a legal obligation to do so, based on the deferred revenue balances as of the acquisition date. We add back deferred revenue and other adjustments for non-GAAP financial measures because we believe the inclusion of this amount directly correlates to the underlying performance of our operations.

-- Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets - Acquisition-related amortization expense is a non-cash expense arising primarily from the acquisition of intangible assets in connection with acquisitions or investments. We exclude acquisition-related amortization expense from non-GAAP financial measures because we believe (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods as a result of new acquisitions and full amortization of previously acquired intangible assets. Investors should note that the use of these intangible assets contributed to revenue in the periods presented and will contribute to future revenue generation, and the related amortization expense will recur in future periods.

-- Stock-based compensation - Stock-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense arising from the grant of stock-based awards. We exclude stock-based compensation expense from non-GAAP financial measures because we believe (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods as a result of the timing and valuation of grants of new stock-based awards, including grants in connection with acquisitions. Investors should note that stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to employees whose efforts contributed to the operating results in the periods presented and are expected to contribute to operating results in future periods, and such expense will recur in future periods.

-- Non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs - Non-recurring expenses relate to certain severance and other charges incurred in connection with activities that are considered one-time. Transaction-related costs are the non-recurring costs related to specific acquisitions (such as the Healthland acquisition). We exclude non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs from non-GAAP financial measures because we believe (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods.

-- Non-cash charges to interest expense and other - Non-cash charges to interest expense and other includes amortization of deferred debt issuance costs. We exclude non-cash charges to interest expense and other from non-GAAP financial measures because we believe these non-cash amounts relate to specific transactions and, as such, may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our business operations.

-- Cash benefits derived from the utilization of net operating loss carryforwards acquired in the Healthland acquisition - A significant portion of the fair value of the assets we acquired in the Healthland acquisition is comprised of federal and state net operating loss carryforwards of the acquired entities. We add utilized amounts in computing adjusted EBITDA to reflect the cash benefit received by the Company from the utilization of these significant assets as such benefits are generally excluded from GAAP measures of financial performance. Amounts reported for the utilization of these net operating loss carryforwards are adjusted for the impact of other one-time, acquisition-related current deductions (such as deductions related to the nonqualified stock options issued as part of the acquisition consideration) that otherwise limit the utilization of these net operating loss carryforwards in a given annual period due to their beneficial impact on current taxable income.

-- After-tax effect of non-deductible transaction-related costs - Certain transaction costs incurred in the Healthland acquisition are non-deductible for federal income tax purposes as they are considered facilitative costs of the specific transaction. Similar to the treatment of non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs, we exclude the after-tax effect of non-deductible transaction-related costs from non-GAAP net income because we believe (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods.

Management considers these non-GAAP financial measures to be important indicators of our operational strength and performance of our business and a good measure of our historical operating trends, in particular the extent to which ongoing operations impact our overall financial performance. In addition, management may use Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP net income and/or Non-GAAP EPS to measure the achievement of performance objectives under the Company’s stock and cash incentive programs. Note, however, that these non-GAAP financial measures are performance measures only, and they do not provide any measure of cash flow or liquidity. Non-GAAP financial measures are not alternatives for measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from similarly titled non-GAAP measures presented by other companies, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with our results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, there is no certainty that we will not incur expenses in the future that are similar to those excluded in the calculation of the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release. Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" above.
