QMed, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Results

EATONTOWN, N.J., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- QMed, Inc. (Nasdaq: QMED) today announced financial results for the third quarter ending August 31, 2007. Revenue for the three-month period increased to $10,781,247 compared to $2,202,270 in the prior year's quarter. This revenue includes amounts for the disease management segment of $846,860 and $1,763,429 for the three months ended August 31, 2007 and 2006, respectively. On a sequential basis revenue increased 14.1% from 2007's second quarter. Net loss for the quarter increased to $(9,201,399) or $(0.54) per share on a diluted basis, compared to net loss of $(3,317,401) or $(0.20) per share on a diluted basis, for the same period a year ago. The Company's cash position as of August 31, 2007 was approximately $6.4 million, net of statutory reserves.

Revenue for the nine-month period ended August 31, 2007 increased to $26,574,368 from $7,306,588 in the same period a year ago. Net loss for the nine months was $(13,068,372) or $(0.77) per share on a diluted basis, compared to net loss of $(8,924,946) or $(0.53) per share on a diluted basis, for the same period a year ago.

South Dakota SNPs member months totaled 18,450 producing $20.5 million in revenue or $1,113 Per Member Per Month (PMPM). Member months in the New Jersey SNP totaled 1,269 producing $2.2 million in revenue or $1,758 PMPM. As reported in our September 27, 2007 press release, the medical expense ratio (MER) results from a spike in the payment of medical claims related to services from prior months paid in July and August, so that we have reported an increase in our incurred but not reported or paid (IBNP) claims liability. This IBNP estimate will represent approximately 30% of total medical expenses for the nine months ended August 31, 2007 resulting in a MER of approximately 114%. Given our limited claims history, the implications of these payments on our MER cannot be determined with certainty until we achieve a higher claims completion rate.

Jane Murray, QMed president and CEO said, "We believe that medical expenses will moderate over time as:

-- Medicare premium payments rise based upon data submitted through our

proprietary technology

-- Members are in our programs longer, so that our interventions gain


"We have seen both phenomena. We received an increase in 2007 for members who joined in 2006. In addition, we have observed in both Medicare demonstrations and in managing Medicare members for other health plan customers, that length of time in the program (LOTIP) correlates with increasingly positive health and financial outcomes."

"We continue to experience strong sequential quarterly growth and obviously expect it to continue. The third quarter's revenue increase is the result of continued strong enrollment in our Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plans in South Dakota coupled with more modest growth in New Jersey. In September we experienced similar trends, as we added another 149 in our chronic SNP in South Dakota, 33 members in New Jersey and 46 in the South Dakota SNP for Duals."

"We enter the 2008 marketing season with strong momentum. As of the end of the third quarter, our revenue run rate was $44,000,000. In addition, we will offer five SNPs in 2008. These include an SNP for those dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid in South Dakota, as well as a SNP for diabetes and a SNP for cardiovascular disease and stroke in both New Jersey and South Dakota. As we have stated previously, these offerings have the effect of increasing the number of those eligible for our chronic SNPs by nearly 80% in both New Jersey and South Dakota. These two facts, run rate and major expansion of our pool of potential enrollees, combined with increasing confidence among selling agents, providers and our own members, provide a basis for our guidance of $88-$95 million," she concluded.
