VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Aug. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CloudMD Software & Services Inc. (TSXV: DOC, OTCQX: DOCRF, Frankfurt: 6PH) (the “Company” or “CloudMD”), a healthcare technology company revolutionizing the delivery of care, announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022. All financial information is presented in Canadian dollars unless otherwise indicated.
“Our Q2 results reflect the strength of our core Enterprise Health Solutions (“EHS”) business in the face of headwinds and distractions from our non-core business and overhang from previously made acquisitions. There is an incredible opportunity for our EHS division as industry trends converge with our differentiated product offering. We are taking the necessary steps to enable the performance of our core business to shine,” said Karen Adams, CEO of CloudMD. We will continue to execute on our strategic priorities of driving additional organic growth, integrating and optimizing our cost structure, and achieving financial sustainability and profitability with an emphasis on prudent cash management.”
John Plunkett, CFO of CloudMD, added, “As a team, we are focused on reaching profitability and positive operating cash flow. We are taking steps across the organization to align costs with each division’s revenue and to divest non-core assets which will provide some near-term capital. The team has made progress in cleaning up our cost structure, balance sheet, and outstanding issues from past transactions. We will continue to focus on further optimization for the remainder of the year. There is work to be done, but I’m encouraged by the steps taken to date and am pleased with the organic growth that our EHS business is starting to generate which will provide positive contributions in the second half of the year.”
Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights
- Q2 2022 revenue was $40.3 million, compared to $41.4 million in Q1 2022 and $15.7 million in Q2 2021. The growth was driven by the five acquisitions completed since the start of the second quarter of 2021, coupled with organic growth and customer momentum within the EHS division. The Company’s Q2 revenue was impacted by one-time COVID contracts ending, which are expected to be replaced moving forward.
- Q2 2022 gross profit margin was 31.0% compared to 32.5% Q1 2022 and 35.5% in the second quarter of 2021. The lower gross profit margin percentage was due to shift in revenue mix and performance in the IDYA4 business which is expected to return to a normal level in the third quarter.
- Adjusted EBITDA was negative $3.2 million in Q2 2022, compared to negative $1.6 million in Q1 2022 and a loss of $0.6 million in Q2 2021. Net loss in Q2 2022 was $44.2 million or $0.15 per share, compared to a loss of $6.6 million or $0.03 per share in Q2 2021. The larger loss per share was driven by a $33.0 million impairment of goodwill and $5.5 million of other non-recurring one-time costs.
- Cash and cash equivalents were $29.7 million as of June 30, 2022, compared to $45.1 million on December 31, 2021. Cash outflows4 in the second quarter were $17.2 million, which was unusually high for the Company. The normalized cash outflows4 were $6.9 million.
