- Q4 DailyMed(TM) Sales Increase 43% Over Third Quarter and 80% Over Prior Year Quarter
- Q4 Home Care Sales Up 10% From Same Quarter a Year Ago and 10% for Full Year
- $29.3 Million in One-Time Charges relating to Asset Impairment Charges, Debt Restructuring Costs, Loss on the Sale of Discontinued Operations
INDIANAPOLIS, June 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Arcadia Resources, Inc. (NYSE Amex: KAD), a leading provider of home care, medical staffing and pharmacy services under the Arcadia HealthCare(SM) brand, today announced results for its fiscal fourth quarter and year ended March 31, 2009.
The fourth quarter was marked by significant sales growth in the Company's core pharmacy and home care operations, offset by a reduction in sales in its medical staffing business and the previously announced disposition of non-core businesses. Arcadia also recorded one-time charges of $29.3 million associated with its efforts to streamline the business and improve its balance sheet over the long term.
For the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009, Arcadia reported net revenues from continuing operations of $25.9 million, essentially the level same as the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008. Arcadia reported a net loss from continuing operations of $32.7 million, compared with a net loss of $4.5 million for the fiscal 2008 fourth quarter. The loss in the 2009 fourth quarter reflected the impact of several one-time charges taken during the quarter, including asset impairment charges of $23.5 million, a $4.2 million charge for costs associated with the Company's recently completed debt restructuring, and a $544,000 loss on the sale of discontinued operations. The asset impairment charges primarily related to the Pharmacy business, reflecting the Company's decision to focus its Pharmacy business model on the fast-growing DailyMed platform and key strategic alliances.
"The large net loss in the fourth quarter from significant one-time charges masks the tremendous progress we made in strengthening our financial position and focusing the business for growth," said Marvin R. Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Arcadia. "We experienced substantial growth in our DailyMed business last year and have similar strong momentum in the first quarter, including a new relationship with WellPoint. Likewise, our home care business grew by double-digits, and we believe there is significant potential for further growth as we can now focus our resources on delivering on our vision of Keeping People At Home and Healthier Longer."
Arcadia reported an 80% increase in sales for its DailyMed medication management system in the 2009 fourth quarter compared to the prior year quarter, as well as a 43% increase in DailyMed sales over the third quarter of 2009. The Company also reported a 10% increase in fiscal 2009 fourth quarter sales compared to the same period a year ago for its Arcadia Home Care unit, and a 10% increase for the full year. Operating cash from all operations improved for the quarter, with the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 generating positive cash flow of $740,000, compared to cash usage of $22,000 in the year-ago period.
For the year ended March 31, 2009, excluding discontinued operations, Arcadia reported net revenues of $106.1 million compared with net revenues of $104.8 million in 2008. For fiscal 2009, Arcadia reported a net loss from continuing operations of $43.0 million compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $14.2 million in the previous fiscal year.
The Company also announced that it signed a commitment letter to extend its credit line with Comerica Bank. This line of credit was set to mature in October 2009 but will be extended to August 2011.
"The commitment from Comerica to extend the credit line is the last piece of the debt restructuring we initiated late last year," said Matt Middendorf, Arcadia's Chief Financial Officer. "In March 2009, we extended the majority of our long-term debt to 2012 and raised an additional $3 million. This debt restructuring was a critical milestone in securing the flexibility and position we need to grow in the short and long term."
Arcadia recently sold several non-strategic business lines, including its home health equipment (HHE) business, its industrial staffing business and its retail pharmacy software business. The proceeds of these asset sales have been used to reduce debt and to provide funding to grow the Company's remaining businesses. The businesses sold in May and June have been treated as discontinued operations in the full year financial statements and prior periods have been restated to reflect the discontinued operations. Including these discontinued operations, the Company's net loss for fiscal 2009 was $46.5 million, compared with a net loss of $23.4 million for the prior year, and its net loss for the 2009 fourth quarter was $36.7 million compared with a net loss of $3.1 million in the 2008 fourth quarter.
"In fiscal 2009, our board and management team created a strategic plan to sell non-core business units, streamline our business model, restructure our debt and invest additional resources into our high-growth DailyMed product and our Arcadia Home Care/Medical Staffing division," said Richardson. "By all these measures, 2009 was a success as we completed several initiatives and now have a clear focus and positive momentum moving into fiscal 2010."
Fourth Quarter Results - Continuing Operations
Arcadia reported fourth quarter revenues from continuing operations of $25.9 million, a 2.8% decline from the third quarter of 2009 and essentially level with the fourth quarter a year ago. Arcadia's significant growth in DailyMed sales and increased sales in its home care business were offset by reductions in sales in the medical staffing business, which reflect soft market conditions in the temporary medical staffing market. The Company's gross margin from continuing operations remained steady at 29.2%, compared with 29.1% for the same period in 2008 and 29.5% in the 2009 third quarter.
Highlights by segment include:
Year-End Results - Continuing Operations
Arcadia reported a 1.3% increase in net revenues to $106.1 million in the fiscal 2009, reflecting strong Home Care and DailyMed sales, offset by double-digit declines in Medical Staffing sales. The Company's gross margin improved by 0.7% to 29.9% for the full year 2009 compared. The Company's Home Care and Medical Staffing business gross margins improved from 29.2% for fiscal 2008 to 30.5%, reflecting the increased sales of higher margin Home Care business and reductions in the Company's workers compensation expense.
The 2009 net loss from continuing operations was $43.0 million, compared to a net loss of $14.2 million for 2008. The Company recorded one-time charges of $29.3 million during the current year. Without these charges, the net loss would have been essentially the same as the net loss incurred in the prior year. The one-time charges included $23.5 million in asset impairment charges; $4.5 million related to the restructuring of $24 million of the Company's long-term debt in March; and $1.3 million in charges related to discontinued operations.
Cash flow from all operations was a positive $778,000 for 2009, compared with net cash from operations used of $7.1 million in 2008.
Full year highlights were:
"We continue to be pleased with the adoption of DailyMed by consumers and payers alike, as evidenced by the 43% sequential quarter increase in sales for DailyMed in the fourth quarter. DailyMed will continue to be a significant growth driver in 2010 and beyond," said Richardson. "We will begin enrolling additional lives from our new WellPoint agreement at the beginning of July, and we continue to add patients from the Indiana Care Select program and other payers. We expect DailyMed revenue to grow significantly in fiscal 2010. Our fiscal 2010 first quarter DailyMed revenues are expected to increase more than 40% from last quarter, and we expect to see the positive effects of the new WellPoint program in the second quarter.
"We also expect Home Care revenues to grow 6% to 8% over fiscal 2009 levels," Richardson added. In contrast, our medical staffing revenues remain at lower levels year-over-year due to the economic recession. It is unclear when revenues in that segment will recover, but we are well positioned when that market segment recovers.
"Our focus as a management team remains on continued SG&A expense reductions and a highly disciplined approach to managing our cash resources," Richardson continued. "However, as we continue to ramp-up our DailyMed revenues and reduce our corporate SG&A expenses in light of recent asset sales, we expect to incur a loss in the first quarter ending June 30, 2009, and expect to have negative operating cash flow. We do, however, expect to see sequential improvement during the course of the year."
Richardson concluded: "Though we are never pleased with a loss, fiscal 2009 was unquestionably an important year and a major step forward. We have narrowed our scope, though certainly not our opportunity, and we're committed to becoming part of the new wave of healthcare delivery that is both efficient for the providers and convenient for consumers, while delivering long-term value for our shareholders. DailyMed provides a proven and innovative solution to reduce the soaring costs of health care in America, and there is a great deal of rhetoric about such initiatives, we're actually executing in the real world with real results as evidenced by interest from legislators and strategic partners alike."
Capital Resources and Liquidity
At March 31, 2009, the Company had $1.5 million in cash and cash equivalents on its balance sheet and had access to $2.9 million in additional line of credit availability, resulting in total cash and availability of $4.4 million, compared to total cash and availability of $6.4 million at March 31, 2008. The primary reason for the reduction in cash and availability was the lower borrowing base under the Comerica credit line as the level of accounts receivable in the Services segment declined during the year.
Arcadia reported positive cash flow from all operations of $740,000 for the quarter and $778,000 for the year ended March 31, 2009, compared with cash used in operations of $7.1 million in fiscal 2008. Operating cash flows reflect $2.2 million of non-cash interest expense during fiscal 2009 versus $200,000 in fiscal 2008. Consolidated cash flow was a negative $4.8 million for fiscal 2009, as compared with positive consolidated cash flow of $3.4 million in fiscal 2008.
