Total revenues for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018, were $67.9 million, compared with total revenues of $67.7 million for the prior-year period. Net income for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, was $0.3 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared with net income of $1.6 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2017. Cash provided by operations for the second quarter was $4.7 million, compared with cash provided by operations of $6.2 million for the prior-year period.

Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2018, were $138.8 million, compared with total revenues of $131.8 million for the prior-year period. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2018, was $4.3 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, compared with $1.8 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2017. Cash provided by operations for the first six months of 2018 was $7.8 million, compared with cash provided by operations of $15.9 million for the prior-year period.

“Our second quarter of 2018 was led again by nice growth from our services, business consulting and IT business, TruBridge,” said Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI. “These results include a 13% increase in TruBridge services revenue compared with the second quarter last year and record quarterly bookings for our Revenue Cycle Management solution. This top line growth for CPSI was accompanied by the addition of 15 new clients, which included 11 community hospitals and four skilled nursing facilities, bringing the total number of new clients to 29 for the year. While total revenue this quarter was weaker than expected, we expect to recapture it before year end.”

Commenting on the Company’s financial performance for the quarter, Matt Chambless, chief financial officer of CPSI, stated, “As we shared during our first quarter conference call, the proposed ruling from CMS allows for a 90-day stage 3 meaningful use (MU3) attestation period in 2019 instead of the full year. This ruling effectively delayed the need for hospitals to be prepared for MU3 attestation from the end of 2018 to October 2019, at the latest. With this relief in timing, it is clear our clients feel less urgency to install applications purchased before the end of 2018. As a result, much of the remaining revenue associated with MU3 will extend into 2019. This shift in MU3 revenue recognition and a delayed new system implementation, along with a period of naturally higher general and administrative costs, affected both our top and bottom line results this quarter. However, we view these as typical dynamics that are not uncommon in an industry bound by heavy government regulations.”

Douglas added, “Closing out the first half of 2018, we already have 18 implementations scheduled in the second half of the year, which has created a very healthy pipeline of revenue and an expected strong finish for the year. In addition, our continued efforts of closely managing our combined company operations and leveraging synergies that enhance our business and support our clients will help drive efficiencies. Based on the 2018 expense exit run rate, we expect an estimated $10 million incremental benefit to our bottom line in 2019, supporting our goal of returning to 20% EBITDA margins in 2020.”
