United American Healthcare Corporation Announces Fiscal 2009 First Quarter Results

DETROIT, Nov. 4 /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 fiscal first quarter ended Sept. 30, 2008.

Revenues increased five percent to $6.5 million for the first fiscal quarter ended Sept. 30, 2008, compared with revenues of $6.2 million for the first quarter of fiscal 2008. Total expenses increased two percent to $6.2 million in the fiscal 2009 first quarter, compared to $6.1 million in the prior fiscal year's first quarter. For the first quarter of fiscal 2009, the Company reported net income of $190,000, or $0.02 per basic share, compared with net income of $73,000, or $0.01 per basic share, in the comparable quarter a year ago. The increase was primarily due to an increase in Medicare Advantage "Special Needs Plan" (MA-SNP) revenue of the Company's subsidiary, UAHC Health Plan of Tennessee (UAHC-TN), and a decrease in marketing, general and administrative expenses due to the pending expiration of UAHC-TN's TennCare contract to serve Medicaid beneficiaries in the West Grand Region of Tennessee.

The increase in fiscal 2009 first quarter revenue helped to offset an eight percent decrease in TennCare-related fixed administrative fee revenue from the prior fiscal year's first quarter, principally due to a decrease in the number of UAHC-TN's TennCare enrollees. As of Sept. 30, 2008, UAHC-TN's total TennCare enrollment was 97,000 members, down from 107,000 members a year earlier.

"As we continued the transition of our TennCare business to new providers, we maintained firm control over our expenses and utilization of our assets, which resulted in our profitability for the quarter," said William C. Brooks, president, chairman and CEO of United American Healthcare. "As we move closer to the final expiration of UAHC-TN's TennCare contract on June 30, 2009, we will continue to maintain a disciplined approach to our expenses and continue conserving our resources in anticipation of pursuing a new business strategy."

UAHC-TN's MA-SNP business comprised 44.1 percent of the Company's total revenue in the fiscal 2009 first quarter. MA-SNP medical premiums revenues were $2.9 million, while medical expenses for MA-SNP increased to $2.5 million in that quarter. The percentage of such medical expenses to medical premiums revenues -- the "medical loss ratio" -- was 88.1% for the quarter.

On April 22, 2008, UAHC-TN learned that it will no longer have a TennCare contract to serve Medicaid beneficiaries in the West Grand Region of Tennessee when its current TennCare contract expires. UAHC-TN's TennCare contract represented 53 percent of the Company's total revenues for the fiscal 2009 first quarter. UAHC-TN's TennCare members transferred to other managed care organizations on Nov. 1, 2008, after which UAHC-TN will perform its remaining contractual obligations through its TennCare contract expiration date of June 30, 2009.

Management expects to incur a number of substantial expenses related to the TennCare contract discontinuance. Such total costs are estimated in the range of $4.6 million to $6.6 million, including claims processing costs, employee severance, lease termination costs and other general administrative expenses from November 2008 through June 2009.

As of September 30, 2008, United American Healthcare reported cash, cash equivalents and short-term marketable securities of $26.8 million, compared to $27 million as of June 30, 2008. The Company remains debt free.

"While we are fortunate to have significant cash, cash equivalents, short-term marketable securities, and statutory reserves given the current state of the financial markets, it is important to note that a substantial portion of those assets must be retained for regulatory purposes and to fund our remaining obligations under the TennCare contract," concluded Brooks. "The Company's management team and board have been actively engaged in a review of a variety of long-term strategic alternatives for the Company. In considering these options, we are currently guided by three objectives: a significant revenue contribution, positive EBITDA and long-term growth opportunities. As we evaluate these alternatives and when the board comes to a decision regarding our strategic options, we will have more clarity regarding our need for and the ultimate utilization of our cash balances."
