DELRAY BEACH, Fla. & PALO ALTO, Calif. & ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--UpHealth Holdings Inc. (“UpHealth”), an integrated global platform serving four large digital health markets, today announced pro forma combined financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 reflecting the intended combination of UpHealth and Cloudbreak Health, LLC (“Cloudbreak”).
GigCapital2, Inc. (NYSE:GIX) (“GigCapital2”) filed on April 28, 2021 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) an amended registration statement on Form S-4/A, which includes a prospectus and a preliminary proxy statement, to approve the business combinations of GigCapital2 with each of UpHealth and Cloudbreak.
On a pro forma combined basis for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, the companies, consisting of the combination of UpHealth (including Innovations Group, Inc. (“Innovations Group”), and Glocal Healthcare Systems Private Limited (“Glocal”), which are both now subsidiaries consolidated into UpHealth) and Cloudbreak, had pro forma combined revenue of $31 million, gross margin of 56% (excluding the allocation of depreciation and amortization), and adjusted EBITDA of $3 million. Upon completion of the business combinations with GigCapital2, Cloudbreak’s unified telemedicine platform and technologies will be fully integrated into UpHealth.
“First quarter pro forma combined results met our expectations, and we remain on track with the outlook for 2021 we’ve previously provided. UpHealth’s pro forma 2021 revenue is expected to be in the range of $180-190 million, gross margin is expected to be in the range of 54-58%, (excluding the allocation of depreciation and amortization), and adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $16-20 million. Our expected revenue growth rate and profitability position us very favorably relative to the digital healthcare market peers. We anticipate being able to provide quarterly guidance at a future date,” said Martin Beck, Chief Financial Officer of UpHealth.
“We continue to make significant progress integrating our businesses, positioning us to rapidly capture revenue synergies and scale-related efficiencies which could help us to exceed our projected financial results. During the first quarter, UpHealth increased its ownership position in Glocal from 43% to over 89% - Glocal serves as a foundational platform, along with Cloudbreak, for UpHealth’s global telehealth business. Additionally, during the second quarter, UpHealth completed the acquisition of Innovations Group on April 27, 2021. We remain committed in our mission to bring technology and services to efficiently and profitably deliver services, coordinate care and manage health to improve health outcomes, quality and costs, and also provide solutions to address healthcare disparities and access to care. We look forward to completing the merger transaction with GigCapital2 and Cloudbreak in early June, which will give us access to significant growth capital and help accelerate expansion of our unique technologies and solutions across the care continuum,” stated Dr. Ramesh Balakrishnan, Chief Executive Officer of UpHealth.
