Third quarter 2007 Results by Division
Health Information Division (HID)
The Company's Health Information Division reported revenues of $49.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2007 compared to $52.9 million in the prior year period.
-- Portamedic revenues decreased 5% to $35.0 million, compared to $36.9
million in the third quarter of 2006. This decrease is the result of a
reduction in paramedical exams of approximately 13% in comparison to
the corresponding period of 2006, partially offset by higher average
revenue per exam of 7% due to increased pricing linked to improved
service. The Company believes that Portamedic's market share is now
stable after several years of declines.
-- Infolink revenues were $6.6 million, down 14% compared to $7.6 million
in the third quarter of 2006. The decrease reflects a decline in
attending physician statement (APS) orders.
-- Heritage Labs revenues rose by 12% to $4.8 million from $4.3 million in
the same period of 2006. The increase reflects growing lab testing for
wellness customers, new higher value services and new clients.
-- Underwriting Solutions (formerly Mid-America Agency Services) revenues
decreased 23% to $3.1 million compared to $4.0 million in the third
quarter of 2006. The decrease is due to the expected loss in volumes
from one major customer, already significantly offset by the signing of
Claims Evaluation Division (CED)
The CED reported third quarter revenues of $6.8 million, a decrease of 11% compared to $7.7 million in the third quarter of 2006. The decrease was primarily the result of a continued contraction in the number of independent medical exams and peer reviews ordered by our customers.
James Calver, Chief Executive Officer of Hooper Holmes, commented, "Ours is a seasonal business and the third quarter is traditionally the most challenging. However, we remain confident of improved performance in the fourth quarter and an expected return to profitability in the first quarter of 2008. We continue to focus on generating new sources of revenue in growing markets such as Health and Wellness, growing market share, sustaining increases in pricing by improving service levels and improving our productivity through careful investment in our processes, people and new technology. We have successfully ended a multi-year decline in market share at Portamedic and developed new, premium products to meet our customers' changing needs. In our efforts to improve our service offerings, we recently launched a new service, Mature Assessment, the only integrated lab and exam assessment designed to meet the full range of underwriters' need for older applicants."
