Hooper Holmes Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

Hooper Holmes (NYSE MKT:HH) today announced financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Consolidated revenues totaled $33.7 million for the third quarter of 2012, representing a 12% decline from $38.2 million in the third quarter of 2011. The Company recorded a net loss of $2.2 million, or ($0.03) per share, for the third quarter of 2012 compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or ($0.02) per share, for the third quarter of 2011.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012, consolidated revenues were $107.9 million compared to $116.7 million in the comparable period of 2011. The Company’s net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 totaled $10.9 million, or ($0.16) per share, compared to a net loss of $2.9 million, or ($0.04) per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The results for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 include $2.2 million of restructuring charges, primarily related to our new Portamedic service delivery model. The results for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 included $0.1 million of restructuring charges.

Third quarter 2012 revenues by service line:

  • Portamedic revenue totaled $21.5 million in the third quarter of 2012, a decline of approximately 13% compared to $24.8 million in the third quarter of 2011, primarily due to a 12% decline in paramedical exams completed during the quarter, with revenue per exam remaining essentially flat in comparison to the prior year period.
  • Health & Wellness revenue totaled $5.3 million for the third quarter of 2012, an 8% decrease from the third quarter of 2011, primarily due to the postponement of third quarter screening events by customers until the fourth quarter of 2012.
  • Heritage Labs revenue totaled $2.6 million for the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of approximately 4% compared to the third quarter of 2011, primarily attributable to a decrease in revenue from the Company’s lab testing services.
  • Hooper Holmes Services revenue totaled $4.3 million for the third quarter of 2012, a decrease of 13% in comparison to the prior year period, primarily due to reduced demand for the Company’s medical records collection services.

As of September 30, 2012, cash and cash equivalents totaled $8.2 million, with no outstanding borrowings under the Company’s credit facility. The Company's cash balance declined by approximately $3.3 million in the third quarter of 2012, primarily attributable to net cash used in operations of approximately $1.9 million and capital expenditures totaling $1.3 million in the third quarter of 2012.

“Third quarter financial results were impacted by the June 30th conversion to our new delivery model and continued revenue declines in Portamedic. While disappointing, we are making progress implementing the new model and we have reduced losses in the 2012 third quarter compared to the 2012 second quarter. Due to the investments made in our delivery model, and throughout the year in technology and services, we were able to win new contracts which will contribute to improved Portamedic results in 2013,” said Ransom J. Parker, President and CEO of Hooper Holmes. “It continues to take time to transform Portamedic, but we are confident in the direction of the business.”

“Health & Wellness results reflect the postponement of screening events by sponsors from the third quarter of 2012 to the fourth quarter. We continue to be optimistic about the performance of Health & Wellness as we head into the seasonally strong fourth quarter,” Mr. Parker continued. “As a result of declines in Portamedic revenue, we are no longer expecting profitability in the fourth quarter of 2012. However, we are optimistic our turn-around strategies will produce positive results in 2013.”
