Company Provides Financial Guidance for 2008

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Emageon Inc. (Nasdaq: EMAG) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2007.

Revenue for the fourth quarter was $28.6 million, a 14.7% decrease from fourth quarter 2006 revenue of $33.5 million. The net loss for the quarter was $0.5 million, or $0.02 per share. In the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company earned net income of $2.1 million, or $0.10 per diluted share. For the year ended December 31, 2007, revenue was $104.2 million, a decrease of 15.6% from the comparable prior year period. Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2007 was $6.9 million, or $0.32 per share, compared to a net loss of $6.0 million, or $0.29 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2006.

Included in the Company's results of operations for 2007 are fourth quarter expenses of $1.1 million, or $0.05 per share, related to employee severance and associated expenses ($2.1 million, or $0.10 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2007), and included in the Company's results of operations for 2006 are fourth quarter expenses of $1.0 million, or $0.05 per share, related to the integration of an acquired company into the Company's operations ($5.4 million, or $0.26 per share, for the year ended December 31, 2006).

The company's cash earnings, which are determined by excluding non-cash charges for depreciation expense, amortization of intangible assets, and stock-based compensation expense from earnings determined under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), were $2.7 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in fourth quarter 2007 compared to $6.1 million, or $0.28 per diluted share, in fourth quarter 2006. For the year ended December 31, 2007, the Company's cash earnings were $5.4 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to $9.4 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, for the year ended December 31, 2006. These measures of earnings were not determined in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of earnings determined under GAAP to cash earnings is included below. Management believes that its cash earnings measurement, when viewed in addition to the Company's reported GAAP results, provides an additional meaningful measure of operating performance, enabling investors to more thoroughly evaluate current performance in comparison to past performance. This information will necessarily differ from comparable information that may be provided by other companies and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to the Company's operating and other financial information determined under GAAP.

At December 31, 2007, unrestricted cash and cash equivalents totaled $17.0 million compared to $23.0 million at December 31, 2006. The company has not drawn on its $15.0 million line of credit arrangement and has total debt obligations of less than $0.1 million. Net cash generated by operating activities was $0.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2007. For the year ended December 31, 2007, net cash consumed by operating activities was $1.0 million.

Total bookings, which include both system sales and support services orders, were $92.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2007 compared to $122.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2006. Fourth quarter 2007 total bookings were $34.5 million compared to $33.7 million in fourth quarter 2006. At December 31, 2007, total orders backlog was $147.8 million, of which $130.1 million are support service orders.

The Company has also announced financial guidance for its year ending December 31, 2008. The company anticipates total bookings in the range of $65.0 to $70.0 million, revenue in the range of $87.0 to $89.0 million, net loss in the range of $4.3 to $4.9 million, or $0.20 to $0.23 per share, and cash earnings, a non-GAAP measure, in the range of $4.9 to $5.8 million, or $0.23 to $0.27 per share. See "Forward Looking Statements" below.

"While 2007 proved to be a difficult year for our business, we were pleased to close the year with our strongest quarter," said Chuck Jett, Chairman and CEO of Emageon. "The market for image management systems, especially in the large hospital sector, is now heavily penetrated, and we expect to see additional challenges in new system sales in 2008. However, we have relationships with over 500 hospitals that use our solutions, and our recurring revenue from these relationships will allow us to fund investments in 2008 that will position us well as market demands change and grow and as a new market cycle evolves."
