United American Healthcare Corporation Announces Fiscal 2009 Second Quarter Results

DETROIT, Feb. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- United American Healthcare Corporation (Nasdaq: UAHC), which owns and provides comprehensive management services to a managed care organization in Tennessee, today announced financial results for its fiscal second quarter ended Dec. 31, 2008.

Revenues decreased $2.2 million, or 32 percent, to $4.8 million for the second quarter ended Dec. 31, 2008, compared with revenues of $7.0 million for the second quarter of the prior fiscal year. The decline was primarily the result of the transfer of members from the Company's subsidiary, UAHC Health Plan of Tennessee (UAHC-TN), to other service providers on Nov. 1, 2008 in advance of the impending expiration of UAHC-TN's TennCare contract to serve Medicaid beneficiaries in the West Grand Region of Tennessee. Total expenses decreased $0.5 million, or 8 percent, to $6.2 million in the fiscal 2009 second quarter, compared with $6.7 million in the prior fiscal year's second quarter. For the second quarter of fiscal 2009, the Company reported a net loss of $1.4 million, or ($0.16) per basic share, compared with net income of $0.3 million, or $0.03 per basic share, in the comparable quarter a year ago. The loss was primarily due to the decrease in revenue, partially offset by a decrease in marketing, general and administrative expenses due to the impending expiration of UAHC-TN's TennCare contract.

For the first six months of fiscal 2009, revenues fell $1.9 million, or 15 percent, to $11.3 million, compared with $13.2 million for the first six months of fiscal 2008. The change in revenues was primarily caused by the transfer of UAHC-TN's TennCare enrollees to other providers on Nov. 1, 2008. Total expenses for the first six months of fiscal 2009 decreased $0.4 million, or 3 percent, to $12.4 million, compared with $12.8 million for the comparable period in the prior year. The expense reduction was the result of a $1.0 million decrease in marketing, general and administrative expenses, partially offset by an increase in medical expenses in the six months ended Dec. 31, 2008. As a result, the Company reported a net loss for the first half of fiscal 2009 of $1.2 million, or $0.13 per share, compared with net income of $0.3 million, or $0.04 per share, in the first half of fiscal 2008.

"We have largely completed the transition of our TennCare business to new managed care organizations, resulting in a sizable reduction in our revenue base," said William C. Brooks, president and CEO of United American Healthcare. "With lower revenues, our disciplined efforts to control expenses and conserve resources will be even more critical as we move closer to the expiration of UAHC-TN's TennCare contract on June 30, 2009."

UAHC-TN's Medicare Advantage "Special Needs Plan" (MA-SNP) business comprised 50 percent of the Company's total revenue in the fiscal 2009 second quarter. MA-SNP medical premiums revenues were $2.4 million, while medical expenses for MA-SNP decreased to $2.3 million. The percentage of such medical expenses to medical premiums revenues - the "medical loss ratio" - was 81.2% for the quarter. As of January 30, 2009, there were approximately 719 enrollees in UAHC-TN's Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan.

The Company previously reported that 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 44.2 percent of the Company's total revenues for the fiscal 2009 second quarter. UAHC-TN's TennCare members transferred to other managed care organizations on Nov. 1, 2008. UAHC-TN will perform its remaining contractual obligations through its TennCare contract expiration date of June 30, 2009.

Management expects to incur substantial expenses related to the impending TennCare contract discontinuance. The net loss is 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 a result of the contract discontinuance, the total number of employees of the Company was 29 at December 31, 2008, compared to 111 at December 31, 2007.

As of Dec. 31, 2008, United American Healthcare reported cash, cash equivalents and short-term marketable securities of $16.6 million, compared to $19.5 million as of June 30, 2008. The Company remains debt-free.

"We will continue managing prudently in this transition to the discontinuance of UAHC-TN's TennCare contract," concluded Brooks. "In the face of these immediate challenges, as well as the broader challenges in the overall economy, the Company's management team and board continue to take actions to reduce expenses and conserve cash until a final decision is made concerning the strategic options available to the Company."
