Athenahealth, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Results

athenahealth, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATHN) (the “Company,” “we,” or “athenahealth”), a leading provider of cloud-based electronic health record ( EHR), practice management, and care coordination services to medical groups and health systems, today announced financial and operational results for the fourth quarter and full year 2012. The Company will conduct a conference call tomorrow, Friday, February 8, 2013, at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss these results and management’s outlook for future financial and operational performance.

Total revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2012, was $116.3 million, compared to $92.5 million in the same period last year, an increase of 26%. Full year 2012 revenue was $422.3 million, compared to full year 2011 revenue of $324.1 million, an increase of 30%.

“2012 was a pivotal year for athenahealth. We delivered strong top and bottom line performance and made marked progress on our mission to be medical care givers' most trusted service,” said Jonathan Bush, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “While information liquidity in health care is mostly an abstract concept, our effort to build a sustainable, market-based national health information backbone is slowly gaining traction. Our information services cover the life cycle of a claim, the chart, the patient relationship and the hospital admission, but they are still small. We have the right model and together with our nearly 40,000 forward-thinking providers who are tapped into our cloud-based network, we are slowly connecting the synapses of health care.”

For the three months ended December 31, 2012, Non-GAAP Adjusted Gross Margin was 63.4%, down from 64.2% in the same period last year, as the Company continues to invest in its newest service offering, athenaCoordinator ®. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA increased 31%, to $27.1 million, or 23.3% of total revenue, from Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $20.7 million, or 22.4% of total revenue, in the same period last year. For the three months ended December 31, 2012, GAAP net income was $5.9 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, compared to $5.3 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, in the same period last year. Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income was $10.8 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, up from $9.3 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the same period last year. See “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below.

“The athenahealth team delivered another great year. We achieved our revenue growth goal of 30% for the 13th year in a row and continued our efforts to improve operational efficiencies across each of our service offerings,” said Tim Adams, the Company’s Chief Financial Officer. “Our investments in growth and innovation are a sign of our commitment to our 30% growth target and to our vision of becoming an information backbone that helps health care work as it should.”
