Catasys, Inc. (NASDAQ:CATS) ("Catasys" or the "Company"), a leading AI
and technology-enabled healthcare company, today reported its financial
results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018. The Company provides
big data-based analytics and predictive-modeling-driven healthcare
services to health plans and their members through its OnTrak™ solution.

Second Quarter 2018 and Recent Business Highlights

  • Catasys' new enrollment for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, increased
    289% year over year.
  • Catasys' outreach pool of eligible members continued to rapidly
    increase due to new program launches with two large insurers and
    expansions with two existing health plan partners in the first half of
    2018. The Company's outreach pool has reached approximately 36,000,
    15% higher than at the end of first quarter 2018.
  • New customer launches continue to take approximately 12 months to
    reach an annual 20% enrollment rate. One year after launch, the
    Company generally enrolls in excess of 20% of its outreach pool.
    Catasys receives approximately $6,800 net per enrolled member.
  • June 2018 – Signed agreement with second largest health plan in the
    country and launched the initial OnTrak-AN solution in California,
    representing the sixth national health plan to launch OnTrak
  • The OnTrak program is currently available through seven health plans
    in 20 states.
  • June 2018 – Announced debt financing of up to $10 million to support
    Company's accelerating growth and technology and product investment.

2018 Guidance

  • Catasys reiterates its expectation to report annual billings (amount
    invoiced in a particular period net of credits, pursuant to existing
    contracts based on enrolled members) of $20.0 million based solely on
    the current outreach pool of eligible members, finishing the year at
    an approximate $25.0 million billings annual run rate.
  • Catasys maintains its guidance despite a health plan partner
    representing more than 50% of this year's outreach pool operating at
    50% of anticipated enrollment capacity due to structural billing
    issues specific to this customer. This has resulted in
    lower-than-anticipated billings and revenue as well as a smaller
    underlying outreach pool than would be expected in a similarly sized
    customer. As the Company works to resolve the structural billing
    issues in Q4, Catasys anticipates an increase in not only the outreach
    pool size but also a significant increase in 2019 billings and
    revenue. Implicit in the Company's 2018 results is the outperformance
    of its financial model by its other health plan partners.

Management Commentary

Mr. Rick Anderson, President and COO of Catasys, stated, "We were
pleased to sign a contract and launch the initial OnTrak program with
the nation's second largest health plan during the second quarter of
2018. With this partnership, Catasys is now contracted with seven of the
top eight insurers in the country. As a result of new launches like this
one and program expansions during the first half of 2018, we saw
continued growth in our outreach pool of eligible members and, by
extension, increased enrollments and higher billings in the second
quarter. We achieved a record $5.2 million in billings for the period,
including a semi-annual savings share payment."

Debt Financing, Chief Technology Officer, and Outlook for 2018

Mr. Terren Peizer, Chairman and CEO of Catasys, stated, "In June, we
announced the closing of a debt financing that should support our
continued growth without dilution to shareholders. We are pleased to
have gained this vote of confidence from our lending partners and are
using the proceeds as additional working capital to scale new contracts
and expansions and invest in new technology platforms to broaden our
footprint within our health plan partners. We believe our strengthened
financial position will enable us to achieve positive cash flow in 2019.
We are optimistic that given our capital light model, after funding
internal growth, future growth opportunities can be financed in a
similar manner, if needed, without equity dilution.

"As part of our commitment to driving technological innovation at
Catasys, we were pleased to appoint industry veteran Jeremiah Stone as
our Chief Technology Officer, a newly created position within our
Company. With over 20 years of industry experience at leading firms such
as GE and SAP, Jeremiah's leadership will play an invaluable part in our
plan to leverage data analytics and new technologies to improve and
evolve the overall OnTrak program, while establishing new avenues for
growth that require more technology and digitized engagement. In doing
so, we expect to enhance our ability to identify, enroll, engage, and
modify the behavior and improve the health of our health plan partners'
eligible members, while accelerating the growth of our business.

"Billings for the second quarter of 2018 were in line with our
expectations given our strong performance in April. As a result of
robust enrollment growth, we once again exceeded our internal
projections in July, setting a new record for monthly billings. We
expect continued growth in our outreach pool of eligible members through
the remainder of 2018 given our ongoing program expansions and
enrollment launches, which will drive enrollment growth in the second
half of the year. With the recent completion of the Company's financing
and appointment of our new Chief Technology Officer, we feel we are well
positioned to enhance our platform and technologies as we work to better
serve a growing customer base."

Second Quarter and Six Month 2018 Financial Review


  • Catasys' billings increased 152% to $5.2 million for the second
    quarter of 2018, from $2.1 million in the prior-year period, driven by
    enrollment growth in new plans and expansions in existing plans.
    Billings increased approximately 75% sequentially from $3.0 million in
    the first quarter of 2018.
  • Billings for the six months ended June 30, 2018, increased 90% to $8.2
    million, compared to $4.3 million in the prior-year period.


  • Revenues increased 97% to $3.3 million for the second quarter of 2018,
    from $1.7 million during the same period in 2017. The increase was
    driven by the launch of enrollment with three new health plans and
    continued enrollment growth from existing plans in the first half of
    2018, resulting in a net increase in the number of members enrolled in
    our OnTrak solution during the second quarter of 2018 compared with
    the same period in 2017. Newly enrolled members as of June 30, 2018,
    were 289% greater than at June 30, 2017.
  • Revenue increased 49% to $5.2 million for the six months ended June
    30, 2018, from $3.5 million during the same period in 2017.

Deferred Revenue

  • When fees are received in advance, deferred revenue is recognized over
    the period the member is enrolled. Catasys has historically been able
    to record its deferred revenue as actual revenue during the course of
    the business cycle, except for cases where members terminated from the
    program early.
  • Deferred revenue was $3.4 million at June 30, 2018, an increase of 17%
    from $2.9 million at December 31, 2017.

Operating Expenses

  • Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2018 were $7.4 million,
    compared to $4.3 million in the prior-year period. This increase was
    mainly due to increased costs of healthcare services to support the
    increasing number of enrolled members; incremental investments in data
    science, IT and software development to drive growth and efficiency;
    and approximately $0.8 million related to non-cash stock option
    expense compared to the prior-year period.
  • Operating expenses in the first half of 2018 were $13.6 million,
    compared to $8.4 million in the prior-year period due to the reasons
    mentioned above.
  • Cost of healthcare services consists primarily of salaries for
    Catasys' care coaches and outreach specialists, healthcare provider
    claims payments to Catasys' network of physicians and psychologists,
    and fees charged by third party administrators for processing these
    claims. In addition, the Company hires staff in preparation for
    anticipated future customer contracts and corresponding increases in
    members eligible for OnTrak. The costs for such staff are included in
    cost of healthcare services during training and ramp-up periods.

Net Income (Loss)

  • For the second quarter of 2018, net loss was $4.2 million, or $0.26
    per diluted share, compared to net income of $13.9 million, or $0.97
    per diluted share, in the prior-year period. The prior-year period was
    positively impacted by $7.0 million in change in fair value of warrant
    liability as well as $10.7 million in change in fair value of
    derivative liability resulting from the issuance of convertible
    debentures in July 2015, which converted into common stock in April
  • For the first half of 2018, net loss was $8.4 million, or $0.53 per
    diluted share, compared to $7.8 million, or $0.68 per diluted share in
    the prior-year period, including the non-cash expense related to the
    issuance of management and director stock options late last year.

About Catasys, Inc.

Catasys, Inc. harnesses proprietary big data predictive analytics,
artificial intelligence and telehealth, combined with human
intervention, to deliver improved member health and cost savings to
health plans through integrated technology enabled treatment solutions.
It is our mission to provide access to affordable and effective care,
thereby improving health and reducing cost of care for people who suffer
from the medical consequences of behavioral health conditions; helping
these people and their families achieve and maintain better lives.

Catasys' OnTrak solution--contracted with a growing number of national
and regional health plans--is designed to treat members with behavioral
conditions that cause or exacerbate co-existing medical conditions such
as diabetes, hypertension, coronary artery disease, COPD, and congestive
heart failure, which result in high medical costs.

Catasys has a unique ability to engage these members, who do not
otherwise seek behavioral healthcare, leveraging proprietary enrollment
capabilities built on deep insights into the drivers of care avoidance
matched with data driven engagement technologies.

OnTrak integrates evidence-based medical and psychosocial interventions
along with care coaching in a 52-week outpatient solution. The program
is currently improving member health and, at the same time, is
demonstrating reduced inpatient and emergency room utilization, driving
a more than 50 percent reduction in total health insurers' costs for
enrolled members. OnTrak is available to members of several leading
health plans in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois,
Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, North
Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas,
Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
