United American Healthcare Corporation Announces Fiscal 2008 Third Quarter Results

DETROIT, May 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- United American Healthcare Corporation (Nasdaq: UAHC), which owns and provides comprehensive management services to a full-service managed care organization in Tennessee, today announced financial results for its third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2008.

Revenues increased 82 percent to $8.3 million for the third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2008, compared with revenues of $4.6 million for the third quarter of the prior fiscal year. The increase in third fiscal quarter revenue is primarily attributable to medical premiums revenues of the Company's subsidiary, UAHC Health Plan of Tennessee (UAHC-TN), from its Medicare Advantage "Special Needs Plan" (MA-SNP), which comprised 35 percent of the Company's total revenues in the fiscal 2008 third quarter. The increase in MA-SNP revenues during the third fiscal quarter helped offset a 6 percent enrollment-related decrease in TennCare-related fixed administrative fee revenue from the prior fiscal year's third quarter. In addition, UAHC-TN had variable administrative revenues associated with the TennCare modified risk arrangement of $1.4 million in the fiscal 2008 third quarter. As of March 31, 2008, UAHC-TN's total enrollment was approximately 101,044 members, down from approximately 109,000 members a year earlier.

Total expenses increased 130 percent to $10.5 million in the fiscal 2008 third quarter, compared to $4.6 million in the prior fiscal year's third quarter, principally due to medical expenses related to UAHC-TN's MA-SNP, which was launched in Jan. 2007, and a goodwill impairment charge as discussed below.

On April 22, 2008, UAHC-TN learned that it will no longer have a TennCare contract to serve Medicaid beneficiaries in the Western Grand Region of Tennessee when its current TennCare contract expires. Its TennCare contract represented 59 percent of the Company's total revenues in the nine months ended March 31, 2008. UAHC-TN's TennCare members are expected to transfer to other managed care organizations on November 1, 2008, after which UAHC-TN will perform its remaining contractual obligations through its TennCare contract expiration date (which it expects will be extended to June 30, 2009).

The Company reported a net loss of $3.8 million, or ($0.43) per basic share, in the 2008 fiscal third quarter, compared with a net loss of $0.04 million, or ($0.00) per basic share, in the comparable quarter of fiscal 2007. The decline in third quarter profitability was primarily attributable to a $3.5 million goodwill impairment charge resulting from the pending expiration of UAHC-TN's TennCare contract, in addition to a $1.5 million charge related to the write-down of a deferred tax asset also resulting from the pending expiration of the TennCare contract. Both the goodwill impairment charge and the deferred tax asset charge are non-cash charges, in accordance with GAAP guidelines.

Excluding the goodwill impairment and the deferred tax asset charges recorded in the third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2008, the Company reported pro-forma net income of $1.2 million, or $0.14 per basic share, in that quarter.

"We remain committed to maintaining the highest level of service to our members throughout the duration of our TennCare contract," said William C. Brooks, president, chairman and CEO of United American Healthcare. "Although we are disappointed by not obtaining a new TennCare contract, we are currently evaluating a short list of strategic alternatives identified to help offset the anticipated material decline in our Medicaid revenues beginning Nov. 1, 2008, while acting in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.

Brooks continued: "Given our ample liquidity and extensive healthcare experience, we are carefully weighing those opportunities which best leverage our competitive strengths, while also preserving shareholder value."

"As of May 1, 2008, UAHC-TN's MA-SNP enrollment included 859 members, partly as a result of our ongoing marketing efforts focused on the 'dual-eligible' population in Shelby County, Tennessee," concluded Brooks.

United American Healthcare reported cash, cash equivalents and short-term marketable securities of $19.2 million as of March 31, 2008, compared to $13.3 million as of March 31, 2007. The Company remains debt-free.
