Accretive Health Postpones Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2012 Earnings Release

Accretive Health, Inc. (NYSE: AH), a leading provider of revenue cycle and quality of care services to healthcare providers, today announced that it will postpone the release of its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2012, as well as its previously announced investor conference call scheduled for February 27, 2013, because it is evaluating the timing of revenue recognition for its revenue cycle management agreements.

The Company is currently evaluating the manner in which it recognizes revenue for its revenue cycle management agreements. Based on information available to date, if the Company determines that a change is necessary, the Company may be required to restate prior-period financial statements. The Company believes, based on information available to date, that any such restatement would have no impact on total revenue recognized over the life of a contract or the timing or magnitude of cash flow from operations. This may defer the timing of revenue recognition and may lead to an increase in deferred revenue or other liabilities reported in prior periods.

The Company expects to delay the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012.

The Company’s cash and cash equivalents as of December 31, 2012 were approximately $177 million, after giving effect to the use of $36.8 million for share repurchases in the fourth quarter of 2012 as part of the repurchase program announced on September 4, 2012. The Company had no debt outstanding as of December 31, 2012.

Financial Guidance

The Company is withdrawing prior financial guidance provided on November 7, 2012 and will announce the revised date for reporting fourth quarter and full year 2012 financial results in a subsequent release.
