CINCINNATI, Ohio, April 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Streamline Health Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: STRM) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and the fiscal year 2008, ended January 31, 2009.
Reflective of the Company's shift to the Software as a Service (SaaS) recurring revenue model, highlights of the fiscal year 2008 included:
Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2008 were $3.4 million compared to $5.7 million in the fourth quarter in 2007, which benefited from a large system sale of nearly $1.9 million through one of the Company's remarketing partners. Net loss for the fourth quarter of 2008 was $146,000, or $(0.02) per fully diluted share, compared to net income of $776,000, or $0.08 per fully diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2007.
During the fourth quarter of 2008, two new hosting contracts were signed and one existing application-hosting contract was renewed. These contracts expand the Company's backlog by approximately $1.1 million in future hosting revenues.
J. Brian Patsy, Chief Executive Officer of Streamline Health, commented, "We continue to make progress in strategically shifting our business toward our SaaS-based hosted model and the recurring revenue benefit that it will provide. During fiscal year 2008, we increased our backlog by 64 percent to $26.2 million. Based on all our contracts in place as of today, our anticipated recurring revenue, backlog fulfillment and scheduled professional services revenue for fiscal 2009 is in the $16 million to $17 million range, exclusive of any generated new business. We believe that the stage is now set for consistently improving operational and financial performance going forward. The trade-off in focusing on SaaS-based hosted model is giving up short-term revenue recognition in return for achieving long-term revenue visibility. While the challenges endured in 2007 and 2008 were significant and sometimes painful, as we executed this strategic shift, we believe that the more predictable nature of our business going forward justifies confronting those challenges.
"Furthermore," Mr. Patsy added, "we have signed another major new international contract, within the past 30 days, to implement our next generation workflow solutions at another large public sector health network in Canada. This is the second major contract obtained through our partnership with Telus Health - backed by Emergis. We are very excited about our expanding international opportunities through our Telus Health relationship, and we hope to announce specific details concerning this impressive win in the very near future.
"Looking ahead," Mr. Patsy continued, "the Obama Administration has prioritized the further development and rapid adoption of electronic health records (EHR) by hospitals and physician practices in order for those organizations to operate more effectively while cutting healthcare costs. The recently passed Stimulus Bill has earmarked up to $19 billion to dramatically increase health information technology investments throughout the entire healthcare industry. This bodes well for our business going forward as we anticipate greater demand and additional federally initiated sources of funding for health information technology investments by our clients and prospective clients. Our solutions are complementary to hospital organizations' plans for EHR adoption."
System sales for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 were $311,000, compared to $2.1 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007. This decrease was primarily the result of a large system sale of nearly $1.9 million through one of the Company's remarketing partners being recognized during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007. Due to recessionary pressures, a similar large system sale which was expected to occur during the fourth quarter of 2008 was postponed indefinitely by our potential new customer. For the full year, system sales increased to $3.2 million versus $3.0 million the previous year.
Services, maintenance and support revenues for the fourth quarter of 2008 were $2.5 million versus $2.7 million in last year's fourth quarter, a decrease of approximately $209,000, primarily as a result of delays in project management revenues. For the full year, services, maintenance and support revenues remained consistent at $10.1 million.
Application-hosting services revenues were $596,000 compared with $878,000 in the comparable quarter last year. This reduction in revenue was primarily due to the loss of a large hosted customer that built its own locally-installed solution and commenced operations in July 2008. For the full year, application-hosting service revenues were $2.9 million versus $3.5 million the previous year. Revenue from hosted customers signed in recent quarters will commence over the next few quarters and the Company expects that approximately 85% of the quarterly revenue attributable to that lost client will be replaced by the hosting contracts entered into in fiscal year 2008.
Revenues for fiscal year 2008 were $16.3 million, compared to $16.7 million last year; a decrease of 2%. The Company reported a net loss for the year of $1.4 million, or $(0.15) per fully diluted share, compared with a loss of $736,000, or $(0.08) per fully diluted share last year. During the year the Company was awarded 10 new contracts, eight of which were application-hosting contracts that added approximately $17.0 million to revenue and backlog over the life of those contracts. That compares with four new contracts, one of which was an application-hosting contract, won in fiscal 2007 that generated $6.8 million in combined revenue and backlog.
Throughout the year the Company aggressively managed operating expenses as it executed its shift away from license software transactions to SaaS-based hosted contracts. Additionally, during the third quarter of fiscal 2008 the Company further reduced expenses in order to offset some of the effects of the slower revenue ramp-up and up-front cash needs of the application-hosting model. These actions are expected to lower the Company's cost structure in fiscal 2009 in excess of $700 thousand per quarter exclusive of variable cost of sale expenses, capitalized software amortization, and planned minor increases in headcount and operating expenses planned in fiscal 2009.
Total backlog at the end of the year increased to $26.2 million, primarily as a result of the large increase in SaaS-based hosting services contracts throughout the year. This represents an increase in backlog of 64% or $10.2 million compared to the backlog at the end of fiscal year 2007 of $16.0 million.
