United American Healthcare Corporation Announces Fiscal 2010 First Quarter Results

DETROIT, Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- United American Healthcare Corporation (Nasdaq: UAHC) today announced financial results for the Company's fiscal first quarter ended Sept. 30, 2009.

Revenues for the first quarter were $1.8 million, down $4.5 million, or 72 percent, compared with revenues of $6.3 million for the first quarter of the prior fiscal year. The decline was primarily the result of the complete transfer of TennCare enrollees served by the Company's subsidiary, UAHC Health Plan of Tennessee (UAHC-TN), to other managed care organizations on Nov. 1, 2008, and the discontinuance of UAHC-TN's Medicaid managed care services as a TennCare contractor. The decrease in revenues was also attributable to the decrease in enrollment and associated revenue from the Company's Medicare Advantage Special Needs Plan (MA-SNP).

Total expenses decreased $2.9 million, or 46 percent, to $3.3 million in the fiscal 2010 first quarter, compared with total expenses $6.2 million in the prior fiscal year's first quarter. The decrease was primarily related to reduced medical expenses, as well as lower marketing, general and administrative expenses in the quarter. For the first quarter of fiscal 2010, the Company reported a net loss of $1.6 million, or ($0.19) per share, compared with earnings of $0.2 million, or $0.02 per share, in the comparable quarter a year ago. The loss in the most recent quarter was primarily the result of the loss of TennCare revenue, partially offset by the reduction in expenses.

"United American Healthcare continues to move through a period of transition marked by the winding down of our MA-SNP business at the end of calendar 2009," said William C. Brooks, President and CEO of United American Healthcare. "Even as our revenues cease, we must still contend with the remaining medical expenses associated with our obligations as a CMS provider. Although we have limited flexibility in dealing with these expenses, we continue to maintain tight control on all remaining expenses in our current lean operational structure."

As of Sept. 30, 2009, United American Healthcare reported cash, cash equivalents, short-term marketable securities and restricted marketable securities of $16.0 million, compared to $19.9 million as of June 30, 2009. The decrease in cash was primarily the result of the payment of approximately $3.3 million, in September 2009, in settlement of a lawsuit originally filed in 2005, as reported in the Company's fiscal 2009 fourth quarter results. The Company remains free of debt.

United American Healthcare continued to take actions to reduce expenses and conserve cash during the first quarter of fiscal 2010. The Company significantly reduced the number of employees to fit its lower level of operating activity. At Sept. 30, 2009, the total number of employees was reduced to 12 from 41 employees a year earlier, representing a year-over-year cost reduction of approximately $1.1 million. Management expects a further substantial decrease in the total number of employees by the expiration of the MA-SNP contract on December 31, 2009.

Due to the expiration of the TennCare contract and the pending expiration of the Medicare contract, the Company's Board of Directors and management team have been engaged in a review of a variety of long-term strategic alternatives. The review process continues to be guided by the goal of pursuing a strategic alternative that satisfies three primary objectives: providing significant revenues, providing immediate positive EBITDA and having long-term growth opportunities. During this review, all feasible options are being considered, including pursuing a joint venture or other strategic partnership, completing a strategic acquisition or merger, or liquidating the Company's assets.

"As we manage through one of the sharpest economic downturns in more than half a century, our review of strategic alternatives has taken longer than we might have anticipated," concluded Brooks. "This should be understandable given the state of current markets and the challenges involved in establishing accurate valuations when markets cease to function effectively. While we realize that some of our shareholders may have grown impatient with this process, we remain committed to completing the hard work and effort required to identify the best possible alternative to benefit all shareholders. As we reach the conclusion of this process, we will communicate our decision to shareholders and provide a forum for them to address their questions and concerns."

Deficiency Notice Related to Nasdaq Minimum Closing Bid Price Rule

On November 12, 2009, the Company received a letter from The Nasdaq Stock Market advising that, for the previous 30 consecutive business days, the closing bid price of the Company's common stock was below the minimum $1.00 per share requirement for continued listing on The Nasdaq Capital Market. This notification has no effect at this time on the listing of Company's common stock, which will continue to trade on The Nasdaq Capital Market under the symbol UAHC.

The Company has a grace period of 180 calendar days, or until May 11, 2010, in which to regain compliance. The Company will regain compliance if at any time before May 11, 2010, the bid price of its common stock closes at $1.00 per share or more for a minimum of 10 consecutive business days. The Company also may be eligible for an additional 180-calendar day grace period if it satisfies the initial listing standards, with the exception of bid price, for The Nasdaq Capital Market. If the Company does not regain compliance within the required period, Nasdaq will provide it with written notification that the common stock is subject to delisting, which is subject to appeal and hearing.

The Company intends to actively monitor the bid price for its common stock and will consider available options to resolve the deficiency and regain compliance with the foregoing listing standards.
