HealthFitness Announces Third Quarter 2009 Financial Results
Date:11/4/2009

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Health Fitness Corporation (NYSE Amex: FIT), a leading provider of integrated employee health and productivity management solutions, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2009.

The company reported revenue of $19.8 million in the third quarter of 2009, a 6.9 percent increase compared to third quarter 2008 revenue of $18.5 million. Gross profit for the quarter increased 7.6 percent to $6.4 million compared to $6.0 million in the third quarter of 2008. Gross margin for the quarter was 32.6 percent compared to 32.4 percent in last year's third quarter. The company reported net earnings of $0.91 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to $0.84 million, or $0.09 per diluted share for the third quarter of 2008.

Four new health management commitments were generated during the quarter, resulting in potential annualized revenue of $3.3 million, compared to $1.2 million of potential annualized revenue generated in the same quarter last year, a 175 percent increase. Two new fitness management commitments were generated during the quarter, resulting in potential annualized revenue of $1.9 million, compared to $0.5 million of potential annualized revenue generated in the same quarter last year, a 280 percent increase. Health and fitness management annualized revenue loss from contract cancellations during the quarter totaled $0.2 million and $0.2 million, respectively, versus $0.3 million and $0.8 million in last year's third quarter. Total potential annualized revenue generated during the third quarter of 2009, net of contract cancellations, was $4.8 million, up 700 percent compared to $0.6 million in the comparable quarter of 2008.

Gregg Lehman, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer, said, "We are pleased with 6.9 percent quarterly revenue growth in light of a tough economy. The $4.8 million of net potential annualized revenue generated during the quarter surpasses the $3.1 million of net potential annualized revenue we produced during the second quarter of 2009, and represents our best quarter for new potential annualized revenue since the second quarter of 2006. Highlights from the third quarter include a health management commitment from a large insurance plan for $3.0 million of potential annualized revenue, which will begin service implementation in July 2010. We also received a fitness management commitment from an auto manufacturer, representing $1.6 million of potential annualized revenue, which will begin service implementation in January 2010."

"Going into the fourth quarter and 2010, we are optimistic about the potential for continued revenue growth. We are currently a finalist in one fitness management proposal and 12 health management proposals, representing potential annualized revenue of $10.7 million. As stated previously, our future revenue growth will continue to be driven by our ability to help self-insured employers reduce the cost of employee healthcare. In addition to the University of Louisville ROI study we published earlier this year, we are currently completing several new ROI analyses that initially show returns ranging from $2.25 to $3.62 for every $1.00 invested. We are excited about these initial results because they affirm the proposition that health improvement services can reduce the impact of health care costs. We will disclose more details about these successful outcomes in future issue briefs and other communications"

Gross margin for the fitness management segment was 24.6 percent compared to 24.9 percent during the prior-year period.

Third Quarter RFPs

During the third quarter, the company received 31 Request For Proposals (RFPs) for health management services and four RFPs for fitness management services. For the first nine months of 2009, the company received 86 RFPs for health management services and 18 RFPs for fitness management services.

Gross profit increased 8.8 percent to $18.3 million, from $16.9 million for the prior-year period. Gross margins for the nine-month period increased to 31.8 percent compared to 30.1 percent during the prior-year period. Net earnings for the nine-month period increased 48.6 percent to $2.3 million, from $1.5 million for the prior-year period. Net earnings per diluted share totaled $0.22 compared to $0.15 for the same period last year.

Eleven new health management commitments and three health management customer expansions were generated during the first nine months, resulting in potential annualized revenue of $8.4 million, compared to $5.1 million generated in the same period last year, a 65 percent increase. Seven new fitness management commitments were generated during the first nine months, resulting in potential annualized revenue of $2.8 million, compared to $1.0 million generated in the same period last year, a 180 percent increase. Health and fitness management annualized revenue loss from contract cancellations during the first nine months totaled $0.4 million and $1.8 million, respectively, versus $0.3 million and $1.4 million in the same period last year.

Balance Sheet

The company ended its third quarter with $5.2 million in cash, compared to $1.3 million at December 31, 2008.

At September 30, 2009, the company had no balance outstanding on its $3.5 million credit facility, and had stockholders' equity of $31.1 million.

Lehman concluded, "While Congress continues to debate the overall direction of health care reform, we are pleased that each of the four bills currently under consideration include provisions that address prevention and wellness. We believe this focus on prevention and wellness affirms the critical need for these services to effectively manage rising health care costs caused by poor diet and exercise choices."

Forward Looking Statements

Certain statements in this release, including, without limitation, statements relating to the state of the economy, the potential for continued revenue growth, the return on investment of the company's programs, the strong finalist pipeline, and health care reform, are forward-looking statements. In addition, the estimated annualized revenue value of new and lost contracts, customer expansions and outstanding requests for proposal are forward looking statements, which are based upon estimates of the anticipated annualized revenue to be realized or lost. Such information should be used only as an indication of the activity the company has recently experienced in its two business segments. These estimates, when considered together, should not be considered an indication of the total net, incremental revenue growth the company expects to generate in 2009 or in any year, as actual net growth may differ from these estimates due to actual staffing levels, participation rates and service duration, in addition to other revenue the company may lose in the future due to customer termination. Any statements that are not based upon historical facts, including the outcome of events that have not yet occurred and the company's expectations for future performance, are forward-looking statements. The words "potential," "believe," "estimate," "expect," "intend," "may," "could," "will," "plan," "anticipate," and similar words and expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are based upon the current beliefs and expectations of management. Actual results may vary materially from those contained in forward-looking statements based on a number of factors including, without limitation, the company's inability to deliver the health management services demanded by major corporations and other clients, its inability to successfully cross-sell health management services to its fitness management clients, its inability to successfully obtain new business opportunities, its failure to have sufficient resources to make investments, its ability to make investments and implement strategies successfully, continued delays in obtaining new commitments and implementing services, the continued deterioration of general economic conditions, contract cancellations, governmental action on health care reform, and other factors disclosed from time to time in the company's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission including our Form 10-K for 2008 as filed with the SEC.
