CINCINNATI, June 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: STRM) today announced financial results for the first quarter, ended April 30, 2009.
Highlights for the quarter included:
Revenues for the first quarter of 2009 were $3.8 million compared to $3.6 million in the first quarter in 2008. Net earnings for the quarter were $16,000, or $0.00 per fully diluted share, compared to a net loss of $815,000, or $(0.09) per fully diluted share, in the first quarter of 2008.
Systems sales increased 12% to $347,000 in the first quarter of 2009 when compared with the first quarter of 2008. The increase in system sales for the quarter was attributed to increases in software license sales.
Services, maintenance and support revenues for the first quarter totaled $2.7 million, reflecting a 12% increase over the $2.4 million of services, maintenance and support revenues in the first quarter of 2008. Revenue growth was principally driven by a $195,000 increase in maintenance revenues and an $89,000 increase in professional services revenues.
J. Brian Patsy, Chief Executive Officer of Streamline Health, commented, "During the quarter we operated more efficiently and consequently profitably, as revenues increased over the prior comparable quarter. We continue to make progress in moving this business forward to the point of becoming consistently profitable; that is our main strategic goal. While we are pleased with the small profit that was earned during the quarter, we know we have much more to accomplish, but we are off to a good start in fiscal 2009, and ahead of our internal plan."
"We are pleased to have secured a new contract during the first quarter in excess of $1.0 million for our document workflow solutions to be integrated into the electronic medical records solution for multiple facilities within another leading Canadian healthcare region," continued Mr. Patsy. "This is the second large Canadian contract won within the past year. These two contracts cover 18 healthcare facilities. As a result, pending the general availability status for our multi-lingual product release, we expect to recognize approximately $1.6 million in software licensing revenues plus additional implementation services in the fourth fiscal quarter. Additionally, we expect our backlog will increase several million dollars as a result of anticipated installation and maintenance services fees over the term of the agreements. We look forward to a solid long-term relationship with this new client."
Application-hosting services revenues declined by approximately $204,000, or 23%, in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 primarily due to the previously announced loss of a large customer in July 2008. New application-hosting contracts signed throughout fiscal 2008 will begin to generate new revenues in the coming quarters. When the new application-hosting services are totally implemented, these new customers are expected to generate revenues to approximate 85% of the revenues attributed to the loss of the large customer in July 2008. Development of new application-hosting customers going forward will drive future growth.
Total operating expenses declined by more than $700,000 to $3.7 million for the first quarter of 2009 from $4.4 million for the comparable period in 2008. This was primarily a result of company-wide cost reductions initiated in the third quarter of 2008 in response to the market shift toward SaaS (Software as a Service)-based hosting contracts. During the just completed quarter, Selling, General and Administrative expenses decreased by $384,000 and Product Research and Development expenses decreased by $373,000.
The operating profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2009 was $28,000 compared with an operating loss of $813,000 in the first quarter of fiscal 2008. This $841,000 improvement in earnings is the result of increased systems sales, increased professional services, increased maintenance services, and improved cost management.
Total backlog at the end of the quarter was $24.3 million, representing an increase of 59% over the comparable backlog of a year ago. Growth in the backlog was primarily driven by a large increase in SaaS-based hosting services contracts won throughout 2008. Backlog declined by about 7% since the end of January 2009 reflective of the Company recognizing revenues from sales made in 2008 and the suspension of one small hosting client during the quarter due to economic factors.
