Hooper Holmes Announces First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

OLATHE, Kan.--()--Hooper Holmes (NYSE MKT:HH) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Consolidated revenues totaled $5.7 million for the first quarter of 2015, representing a decrease from $7.3 million in the first quarter of 2014. The Company recorded a net loss of $2.1 million, or $0.03 per share, for the first quarter of 2015, an improvement from the net loss of $2.7 million, or $0.04 per share, for the first quarter of 2014.

Selling, general and administrative expense for the three month period ended March 31, 2015 decreased $1.8 million to $2.7 million, representing a decrease of approximately 38% compared to the prior year period, as a result of efficiencies achieved through the relocation of the corporate headquarters to Olathe, Kansas.

As of March 31, 2015, cash and cash equivalents totaled $1.4 million, with no borrowings outstanding under the Company's credit facility.

On April 17, 2015 the Company announced the acquisition of the assets representing the health and wellness business of Accountable Health Solutions, Inc. (AHS). AHS’ unaudited financial statements reflect approximately $15 million in net sales during calendar year 2014. The purchase price was $7 million, comprising $4 million cash and approximately $3 million in unregistered common stock, subject to a working capital adjustment. The acquisition is expected to be accretive to Hooper Holmes’ earnings in 2015. Financing for the transaction was provided through a $5 million, three-year, secured term loan.

Henry Dubois, President and CEO of Hooper Holmes commented, “As we discussed on March 31st, we maintained roughly the same unit volume in the first quarter 2015 compared to the 2014 first quarter, while revenue was down due to the end of a long-term clinical study, and one large customer’s decision not to screen this year.”

Mr. Dubois continued, “Beginning with the second quarter 2015, revenue and margin from AHS will be reflected in our consolidated results, offsetting some of the pressure we experienced sequentially. We believe AHS will accelerate Hooper’s growth in health and wellness services, positioning the company to improve its financial trends. We expect AHS will immediately improve and diversify our revenue base, add scale, increase screening volumes, and help us more efficiently utilize our health professional network.”
