April 26, 2021 04:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time NASHVILLE, Tenn.--( BUSINESS WIRE )--HealthStream, Inc. (Nasdaq: HSTM), a leading provider of workforce and provider solutions for the healthcare industry, announced today results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021. Revenues of $63.5 million in the first quarter of 2021, up 3% from $61.6 million in the first quarter of 2020. Operating income of $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2021, down 54% from $7.2 million in the first quarter of 2020, which comparison was negatively impacted by a one-time contractual adjustment to cost of revenues in the amount of $3.4 million in the first quarter of 2020. Net income of $2.3 million in the first quarter of 2021, down 68% from $7.1 million in the first quarter of 2020, which comparison was negatively impacted by $2.6 million from the contractual adjustment in the first quarter of 2020 referenced above. Earnings per share (EPS) of $0.07 per share (diluted) in the first quarter of 2021 compared to $0.22 in the first quarter of 2020, which was impacted by $0.08 from the contractual adjustment in the first quarter of 2020 referenced above. Adjusted EBITDA1 of $13.6 million in the first quarter of 2021, up 14% from $11.9 million in the first quarter of 2020. Completed the acquisition of ComplyALIGN, a Chicago-based healthcare technology company, on January 19, 2021, for $2.0 million in cash. Kevin O’Hara joined HealthStream as Senior Vice President & General Manager, Platform Solutions; Scott Fenstermacher was named Senior Vice President, Sales. Financial Results: First Quarter 2021 Compared to First Quarter 2020 Revenues for the first quarter of 2021 increased by $1.9 million, or three percent, to $63.5 million, compared to $61.6 million for the first quarter of 2020. Revenues from our Workforce Solutions segment were $51.3 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $49.8 million for the first quarter of 2020. Contributions from recent acquisitions and growth in other workforce solutions more than offset the expected decline in revenues from legacy resuscitation products. While revenues from legacy resuscitation products effectively ceased at the end of 2020, revenues for the first quarter of 2021 included $1.8 million from legacy resuscitation products as some agreements will expire in early 2021, compared to $11.2 million in revenues from legacy resuscitation products during the first quarter of 2020. Workforce revenues also benefited from $0.4 million of growth from professional services, primarily associated with recently acquired businesses. Revenues from our Provider Solutions segment were $12.2 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $11.7 million for the first quarter of 2020. Revenue growth of $0.5 million was attributable to new VerityStream subscriptions. Generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) require companies to write down beginning balances of acquired deferred revenue as part of “fair value” accounting. During the first quarter of 2021, HealthStream reported a reduction of $1.6 million to revenue and operating income and a reduction of $0.4 million to net income as a result of deferred revenue write-downs from acquisitions. During the first quarter of 2020, HealthStream reported a reduction of $0.1 million to revenue and operating income and a reduction of $34,000 to net income as a result of deferred revenue write-downs from acquisitions. Operating income was $3.3 million for the first quarter of 2021, down 54 percent from $7.2 million for the first quarter of 2020. The decrease in operating income was primarily attributable to the $3.4 million one-time favorable contractual adjustment to royalty expense resulting in a reduction to cost of revenues in the first quarter of 2020. Also contributing to the decrease are higher operating expenses primarily associated with acquisitions completed during 2020 and the first quarter of 2021. Partially offsetting these declines in operating income was a $1.0 million non-recurring, non-cash benefit during the first quarter of 2021 related to the reduction of paid time off (PTO) expense resulting from modifications to the Company’s PTO policy. Net income was $2.3 million in the first quarter of 2021, down 68 percent from $7.1 million in the first quarter of 2020, and EPS from was $0.07 per share (diluted) in the first quarter of 2021, compared to $0.22 per share (diluted) for the first quarter of 2020, with each comparison negatively impacted in the amount of $2.6 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, from the contractual adjustment in the first quarter of 2020 referenced above. Adjusted EBITDA was $13.6 million for the first quarter of 2021, up 14 percent from $11.9 million in the first quarter of 2020. At March 31, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities of $56.0 million. Capital expenditures incurred during the first quarter of 2021 were $4.3 million. Other Business Updates At March 31, 2021, we had approximately 4.34 million contracted subscriptions to hStream™, our Platform-as-a-Service technology. hStream technology enables healthcare organizations and their respective workforces to easily connect to and gain value from the growing HealthStream ecosystem of applications, tools, and content. On January 19, 2021, the Company acquired ProcessDATA, Ltd. (d/b/a ComplyALIGN and HospitalPORTAL), a Chicago-based healthcare technology company, for $2.0 million in cash, subject to customary purchase price adjustments. This acquisition adds an innovative, SaaS-based policy management system to our suite of solutions for healthcare organizations. Management Team Announcements On January 1, 2021, Kevin O’Hara joined HealthStream as Senior Vice President & General Manager, Platform Solutions, and Scott Fenstermacher—who previously served as Vice President, Sales—was promoted to Senior Vice President, Sales. Both new members of the Company’s executive team have approximately a decade of experience at HealthStream with Mr. O’Hara’s initial tenure served from 2001 – 2011 and Mr. Fenstermacher’s tenure beginning in early 2012. In his current position, Mr. O’Hara is responsible for the growth, development, and integration of the hStream platform throughout the Company. As Senior Vice President, Sales, Mr. Fenstermacher is responsible for the sales efforts of HealthStream’s Workforce Development and Platform solutions, providing executive-level guidance and direction. Financial Outlook for 2021 The Company is updating its guidance for 2021 for the measures set forth below, including adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure as defined later in this release. For a reconciliation of projected adjusted EBITDA to projected net income (loss) (the most comparable GAAP measure) for 2021, see the table included on page 10 of this release. 1 Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. A reconciliation of projected adjusted EBITDA to projected net loss (the most comparable GAAP measure) is included later in this release. The Company’s guidance for 2021 as set forth above reflects the Company’s assumptions regarding, among other things, the COVID-19 pandemic as noted below, anticipated integration costs and additional investments in sales, marketing, and product development in 2021 for recently acquired companies, and estimated deferred revenue write-downs of $4.0 to $4.3 million during 2021 as the result of recent acquisitions, which would result in corresponding reductions to net revenues and operating income during 2021. The Company’s financial guidance assumes that public health conditions associated with the pandemic and general economic conditions (including conditions impacting healthcare organizations) continue to improve over the course of the year, including that COVID-19 vaccines continue to be successfully distributed and perform according to current expectations and that new variants of the virus, or other unknown variants, do not further impede recovery from the pandemic. Commenting on first quarter 2021 results, Robert A. Frist, Jr., Chief Executive Officer of HealthStream, said, “We are starting the year strong with our team managing to outpace several anticipated headwinds to produce record adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter. Moreover, we acquired ComplyALIGN, contracted 121,000 net new hStream subscriptions to our platform, and added two outstanding executives to our management team in the quarter. Our focus remains on supporting healthcare organizations in developing their workforce and improving outcomes—and I believe our success in doing that positions us for sustained growth in 2021 as reflected in our increased guidance.” A conference call with Robert A. Frist, Jr., Chief Executive Officer, Scott A. Roberts, Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President, and Mollie Condra, Vice President of Investor Relations and Corporate Communications, will be held on Tuesday, April 27, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. (ET).

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures This press release presents adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure used by management in analyzing the Company’s financial results and ongoing operational performance. In order to better assess the Company’s financial results, management believes that net income excluding the impact of the deferred revenue write-downs associated with fair value accounting for acquired businesses and before interest, income taxes, stock based compensation, depreciation and amortization, changes in fair value of non-marketable equity investments, the de-recognition of non-cash expense resulting from the PTO expense reduction in the first quarter of 2021 and the resolution of a mutual disagreement related to various elements of a past partnership which resulted in a reduction to cost of sales in the first quarter of 2020 (“adjusted EBITDA”) is a useful measure for evaluating the operating performance of the Company because adjusted EBITDA reflects net income adjusted for certain GAAP accounting, non-cash and non-operating items which may not, in any such case, fully reflect the underlying operating performance of our business. We also believe that adjusted EBITDA is useful to investors to assess the Company’s ongoing operating performance and to compare the Company’s operating performance between periods. In addition, beginning in 2021, executive bonuses are based on the achievement of adjusted EBITDA targets. The Company has revised its definition of adjusted EBITDA to adjust for the derecognition of non-cash expense during the first quarter of 2021 related to the reduction of PTO expense resulting from modifications to the Company’s PTO policy. The Company has included an adjustment in the definition of adjusted EBITDA for the derecognition of this non-cash expense because this amount constitutes a non-cash benefit that management believes is outside of the ordinary course of the Company’s operations and is not reflective of the Company underlying operating performance. As noted above, the definition of adjusted EBITDA includes an adjustment for the impact of the deferred revenue write-downs associated with fair value accounting for acquired businesses. Following the completion of any acquisition by the Company, the Company must record the acquired deferred revenue at fair value as defined in GAAP, which may result in a write-down of deferred revenue. If the Company is required to record a write-down of deferred revenue, it may result in lower recognized revenue, operating income, and net income in subsequent periods. Revenue for any such acquired business is deferred and is typically recognized over a one-to-two year period following the completion of any particular acquisition, so our GAAP revenues for this one-to-two year period will not reflect the full amount of revenues that would have been reported if the acquired deferred revenue was not written down to fair value. Management believes that including an adjustment in the definition of adjusted EBITDA for the impact of the deferred write-downs associated with fair value accounting for acquired businesses provides useful information to investors because the deferred revenue write-down recognized in periods after an acquisition may, given the nature of this non-cash accounting impact, cause our GAAP financial results during such periods to not fully reflect our underlying operating performance and thus adjusting for this amount may assist in comparing the Company’s results of operations between periods. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and should not be considered as a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Because adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP, adjusted EBITDA is susceptible to varying calculations. Accordingly, adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies and have limitations as analytical tools. This non-GAAP financial measure should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance, which are prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) (the most comparable GAAP measure), which is set forth below in this release.
