Share:

Phreesia, Inc. (NYSE:PHR) ("Phreesia") announced financial results today for the fiscal second quarter and six months ended July 31, 2019.

"Phreesia's mission is to create a better, more engaging healthcare experience," said Chaim Indig, Chief Executive Officer of Phreesia, Inc. "We are pleased with our performance in the second quarter of fiscal 2020, our first as a public company. We believe we are well-positioned to further our mission and execute on our plan in the second half of our fiscal year."

Fiscal Second Quarter 2020 Highlights

  • In July 2019, we closed our initial public offering (IPO), of 10.7 million shares of common stock, consisting of 7.8 million shares issued and sold by us and 2.9 million shares sold by certain of our selling stockholders. The price per share to the public was $18.00. We received net proceeds of $130.8 million from the IPO, net of underwriters' discounts and commissions of $9.8 million, and before deducting offering costs of approximately $6.1 million.
  • Revenue was $30.8 million in the quarter compared to $24.8 million in the same period in the prior year, an increase of 24.4%.
  • Average revenue per provider client was $16,472 in the quarter compared to $13,420 in the same period in the prior year, an increase of 22.7%.
  • Average number of provider clients was 1,558 in the quarter compared to 1,463 in the same period in the prior year, an increase of 6.5%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $0.7 million in the quarter compared to $1.7 million in the same period in the prior year, down 57.4% reflecting increases in ongoing general and administrative expenses in preparation for operating as a public company.
  • Cash on the balance sheet as of July 31st was $100.1 million, up $94.2 million from April 30, 2019.
  • Cash increased by $94.2 million during the quarter reflecting $130.8 million in net proceeds from our IPO and the repayment of the $17.7 million outstanding balance on our revolving line of credit, a dividend of $15.0 million to our preferred stockholders and $3.9 million of cash payments associated with our IPO.
  • Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $0.6 million versus $1.9 million in the prior-year quarter reflecting the higher expenses and cash payments associated with preparing to operate as a public company.

Non-GAAP financial measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or loss or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss, before net interest expense (income), provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and before non-cash based compensation expense, non-cash change in fair value of warrant liability and other income (expense), net.

We have provided below a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. We have presented Adjusted EBITDA in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget, and to develop short and long-term operational plans. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of the amounts eliminated in calculating Adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and board of directors.

Our use of Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are as follows:

  • Although depreciation and amortization expense are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect: (1) changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; (2) the potentially dilutive impact of non-cash stock-based compensation; or (3) tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us; (4) net interest expense/(income); and
  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA or similarly titled measures differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these and other limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA along with other GAAP-based financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net loss, and our GAAP financial results. The following table presents a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss for each of the periods indicated:

A Note about Key Metrics

  • Provider clients. We define provider clients as the average number of healthcare provider organizations that generate revenue each month during the applicable period. In one specific case wherein we act as a subcontractor providing white-label services to our partner's clients, we treat this contractual relationship as a single provider client. We believe growth in the number of provider clients is a key indicator of the performance of our business and depends, in part, on our ability to successfully develop and market our Platform to healthcare provider organizations that are not yet clients. While growth in the number of provider clients is an important indicator of expected revenue growth, it also informs our management of the areas of our business that will require further investment to support expected future provider client growth. For example, as the number of provider clients increases, we may need to add to our customer support team and invest to maintain effectiveness and performance of our Platform and software for our provider clients and their patients.
  • Average revenue per provider client. We define average revenue per provider client as the total subscription and related services and payment processing revenue generated from provider clients in a given period divided by the average number of provider clients that generate revenue each month during that same period. We are focused on continually delivering value to our provider clients and believe that our ability to increase average revenue per provider client is an indicator of the long-term value of our existing provider client relationships.
  • Patient payment volume. We measure patient payment volume as the total dollar volume of transactions between our provider clients and their patients utilizing our payment platform, including via credit and debit cards, cash and check. Patient payment volume is a major driver of our payment processing revenue, and we believe that patient payment volume is an indicator of both the underlying health of our provider clients' businesses and the continuing shift of healthcare costs to patients.

Business Outlook

  • For Fiscal Year End 2020, we expect:
    • Total revenue to be in the range of $118.5 to $119.0 million
    • Adjusted EBITDA to be positive
