Hooper Holmes Announces Fourth Quarter and Year-End 2008 Results

Enters into new Three Year Credit Facility with TD Bank, N.A.

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., March 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hooper Holmes (Amex: HH) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2008.

For the three months ended December 31, 2008, total revenues decreased 7.7% to $47.4 million compared to $51.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2007. The Company recorded net income of $1.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2008, or $0.02 per share compared to net income of $6.9 million, or $0.10 per share in 2007. The fourth quarter 2008 results include $1.4 million of income from continuing operations, or $0.02 per share, compared to a loss from continuing operations of $2.3 million, or $(0.03) per share in the prior year. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2008 includes a loss of $0.2 million from discontinued operations. The net income for the fourth quarter of 2007 included income from discontinued operations of $9.2 million, related to the gain on sale of the Company's UK subsidiary, Medicals Direct Group.

The fourth quarter 2008 revenue decline is partially due to the impact of the economic downturn on the Company's life insurance customers. As a result of this revenue decline in the fourth quarter, annual incentive targets were not met. The Company therefore reversed approximately $1.6 million of incentive accruals recorded during the first nine months of the year, reducing its fourth quarter SG&A as compared to the prior year.

On March 9, 2009, the Company entered into a three year Loan and Security Agreement with TD Bank, N.A. which provides a revolving line of credit of up to $15 million. Currently, there are no borrowings outstanding under the facility.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2008, total revenues were $198.2 million compared to $208.6 million in the comparable period of 2007, a decrease of 5.0%. The Company's net loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2008 totaled $1.9 million, or $(0.03) per share, compared to a net loss of $7.3 million, or $(0.11) per share in 2007. The results for the twelve months ended December 31, 2008 include a loss from continuing operations of $1.6 million, or $(0.02) per share compared to a loss from continuing operations of $10.5 million, or $(0.15) per share in the prior year. The loss from continuing operations in 2008 includes restructuring and other charges of $1.6 million. The 2007 loss from continuing operations included restructuring and other charges of $4.7 million. The net loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2008 includes a loss of $0.3 million from discontinued operations. The net loss for 2007 included income from discontinued operations totaling $3.2 million.

Fourth Quarter 2008 Results by Business Unit

Our revenues for each business include:

  • Portamedic revenues decreased approximately 5% to $33.2 million compared to $35.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2007. This decrease is the result of a reduction in paramedical exams of approximately 12%, partially offset by higher average revenue per exam of 6%.
  • Infolink revenues were $5.5 million, a decrease of 22% compared to $7.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2007, primarily due to a decrease in the number of attending physician statements (APS) orders received from customers during the quarter.
  • Heritage Labs revenues totaled $2.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2008, down 16% compared to $3.4 million in 2007, primarily due to reduced revenue from one major client approximating $1.1 million, partially offset by increased revenues from existing clients.
  • Health & Wellness revenues were up in comparison to the prior year, increasing approximately 14% to $3.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. During the fourth quarter, our Health & Wellness business completed approximately 64,000 health screenings and we currently provide our services to 28 health management companies.
  • Underwriting Solutions revenues decreased 10% to $2.9 million compared to the prior year.

Roy H. Bubbs, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hooper Holmes, commented, "We are encouraged by the improvements we have seen this quarter. The initiatives we have taken to improve our operations are progressing very well as we can see in our increased margins and the significant decline in our operating losses. Many of our life insurance customers have been impacted by the weak economy, in turn affecting our sales, but despite side effects from the current market conditions, we improved our operating results during this quarter. We will continue to manage our business for profitability and are confident that we are positioned for future growth in each of our businesses."
