BPO Management Services Announces Financial Results for Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2008

Revenue Increases 71% for the Year as Demand Remains Strong Across All Business Segments

Company Expects 35% Sequential Increase in Revenue for Q1 09 as Healthaxis Integration Proceeds According to Plan

ANAHEIM, Calif., April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BPO Management Services Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: HAXS), a full-service healthcare and business process outsourcing company focused on serving the middle-market, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2008 ended December 31, 2008. The income statement does not reflect the merger of BPO Management Services and Healthaxis, Inc., which was completed on December 30, 2008.

Operational Highlights

  • BPOMS continues to experience solid growth in its ITO business segment as the Company continues to sign long-term, recurring revenue contracts. Concurrent with this effort, expenses for this segment were higher, as a percentage of revenue, than normal as the Company ramps up to support new contract revenue. Typically, there is a 3 to 6 month lag after contract signing before new revenue commences, while customer systems are being migrated. During this short period of time, the Company will experience higher expense levels without matching revenue.

  • BPOMS signed a multi-year agreement to provide ITO services to Forrest T. Jones & Company, Inc. (FTJ), an insurance agency and administrator. Under the terms of this agreement BPOMS will host and manage FTJ's IT infrastructure environment, including monitoring, support and maintenance of all related network components and devices from BPOMS full-service 24/7/365 support center located in Pearl River, NY. BPOMS will also provide dedicated Disaster Recovery services from its high-availability recovery center in Branchburg, NJ.

  • BPOMS completed a planned infrastructure upgrade to its Pearl River data center facility in order to provide additional electrical capacity to support future customer processing requirements. With this upgrade in place the Company is now positioned to increase revenue generated by its ITO segment approximately four-fold, without incurring any significant capital expenditures.

  • BPOMS experienced continuing progress in its ECM business segment with significant improvements in both top- and bottom-line financial performance for Q4, as compared sequentially to the prior quarter. The Company anticipates continuing business improvement in this segment, yielding increasing revenues and bottom-line profitability in the coming quarters. The Company continues to focus on growing its recurring revenue content in this segment, reducing its historic reliance on one-time project implementations.

  • In its HRO segment, the Company continues to grow and transition into a "Software as a Service" (SaaS) business model with customers signing up to use its signature HRAdvocate Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) offering hosted by BPOMS, under a multi-year contract arrangement, in order to manage their human resource function in a cost-effective manner.

  • As revenue grows and ongoing Company integration activities take hold, BPOMS continues to drive down SG&A as a percentage of revenue. This is an important trend that will continue as the Company grows its top line and integrates consolidated Company SG&A activities. This bellweather trend demonstrates the BPOMS operating leverage as incremental revenue drives increasingly higher margins going forward. As the Company grows its revenue base and achieves critical mass, SG&A as a percentage of revenue will continue to drop-off significantly.

  • BPOMS completed its merger with Healthaxis during the fourth quarter, bringing to the Company a robust Healthcare Claims Processing capability in a rapidly expanding Healthcare marketplace. The sophisticated Healthaxis technology provides another important vertical to further leverage key underlying Company technology, processes and infrastructure. The related integration activity is well advanced and will generate improved top- and bottom-line results in the quarters and years ahead.

  • With the Healthaxis merger completed the Company has increased its recurring revenue content to approximately 80%, and continues to drive towards its goal of 90%-plus of revenues derived from recurring revenue contracts.

Patrick Dolan, chief executive officer of BPOMS, said, "We continue to believe that the Company is well-positioned to succeed in the current economic environment as the middle market looks for ways to reduce their cost of ownership, improve operational efficiencies and enhance the quality of their technology investment. We are operating at approximately 25% percent capacity, providing lots of room to grow without adding significant costs. Our future ability to grow has been somewhat tempered by the ongoing crisis in the capital/credit markets, which like most companies today, has made obtaining additional growth capital very challenging. We are actively pursuing several strategic alternatives in order to strengthen our balance sheet and provide the necessary working capital to fully accelerate our growth as we continue to drive towards critical mass."

Fiscal 2008 Financial Results

Revenue for the full year ended December 31, 2008 was $28.1 million, an increase of 71% compared to the $16.5 million for the full year 2007. The Company experienced a 40% increase in Enterprise Content Management (ECM) revenue, to $14.2 million compared to $10.1 million last year. IT Outsourcing Services (ITO) revenue increased 118% to $12.2 million from $5.6 million last year. Human Resource Outsourcing (HRO) revenue increased 143% to $1.7 million from $712,000 in the year-ago period.

Total operating expenses increased 106.5% to $45.7 million after a goodwill and intangible asset charge of $10.6 million compared to $22.1 million for of the same period last year. Inclusive in this increase was an increase in cost of services provided to $15.3 million from $8.0 million last year. SG&A expenses, as a percent of revenue, decreased to 53% from 72.7% in the full year last year, demonstrating strong expense management and the inherent leverage in the Company's business model. The loss from operations for the year was $17.6 million, inclusive of $14.8 million in non-cash expenses, compared to a loss from operations of $5.7 million, inclusive of $3.0 in non-cash expenses in 2007. The non-cash expenses included a one-time, non-cash $10.6 million charge for impairment of goodwill and intangible assets. Excluding non-cash expenses, the loss from operations for the full year period was $2.8 million from $3.8 million in the year-ago period. The net loss for the full year 2008 was $18.1 million, or $(5.74) per basic and fully diluted share (based on 3.2 million shares) compared to a net loss of $5.9 million, or $(0.67) per basic and fully diluted share (based on 9.5 million shares).

Fourth Quarter 2008 Financial Results

For the fourth quarter, total revenue decreased 4.9% to $7.1 million from $7.5 million for the same period last year. The change was due to decreases in the ECM and HRO business segments offset by a 25.5% increase in ITO revenue. ECM revenue reduction was a result of the recent decline in value of the Canadian dollar vs. the U.S. dollar and greater focus on higher margin opportunities yielding improved bottom-line performance. HRO experienced a revenue decline as the Company shifts focus from one-time licensing fees to growing Software as a Service, recurring revenue contracts generating long-term customer relationships Total operating expenses for the quarter were $20.5 million, an increase of 105.6% compared to total operating expenses of $10.0 million during the fourth quarter last year. Included in the operating expenses was a 36.5% increase in cost of services provided, reflecting a spike in short-term migration expenses as new ITO service contracts are migrated into the BPOMS processing environment. The loss from operations for the quarter increased to $13.4 from $2.5 million in the prior-year fourth quarter. Included in the operating loss was a one-time, non-cash charge for the impairment of goodwill totaling $10.6 million, as well as depreciation and amortization and share-based compensation, which in aggregate totaled $12.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2008 and $2.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2007. Excluding these non-cash expenses, the Company's operating loss was $1.4 million during the fourth quarter, compared to a loss of $1.5 million in the fourth quarter last year. The net loss for the quarter was $13.6 million compared to a net loss of $2.5 million in the fourth quarter last year.

Mr. Dolan continued, "Demand for our services, technology and infrastructure, provided on a recurring revenue basis, remains consistently strong across all business segments, including our Healthcare segment which was created through the recent Healthaxis merger. We anticipate continuing business improvement in the first quarter as we expand our revenue base and ongoing Company-wide integration activities reduce SG&A expenses. Going forward we continue to expand our pipeline of new business opportunities, grow our recurring revenue content and relentlessly drive operating efficiencies through cross-organization integration activities. The integration of Healthaxis is well-advanced and should contribute strong top-line growth to accelerate our overall progress during the first quarter. As of December 31, 2008, approximately 80% of our revenues were derived from recurring revenue activities and we continue to focus on building out our backlog of future business to be delivered in the years. This growing base of recurring revenue business serves as the platform on which we will build future shareholder value, and management is confident that as capital/credit markets loosen we are well-positioned to accelerate growth and achieve positive cash flow from operations in fairly short order."

Mr. Dolan concluded, "We believe our revenue will grow approximately 35% on a sequential basis, compared to the $7.1 million reported for the fourth quarter and including the contribution of Healthaxis' healthcare claims processing business. We anticipate continued improvement in our gross profit margin and ongoing reductions in SG&A expenses, as a percent of revenue, as we more effectively leverage our fixed infrastructure across an increasing base of revenue. We remain squarely focused on achieving cash flow break-even as quickly as possible, and expect to narrow our cash burn in the first quarter."

As of December 31, 2008, BPOMS' balance sheet showed $2.8 million in cash compared to $0.9 million at December 31, 2007.
