Q1 2020 Financial Summary
Total revenue in the first quarter of 2020 increased 46% to a record $7.6 million versus $5.2 million in the same year-ago quarter. The quarterly increase was due to increased sales of messaging solutions.
Gross margin decreased to 57.3% in the first quarter of 2020 from 69.6% in the year-ago quarter. The decrease was due to an unusually favorable product mix in the year-ago period that had a high percentage of launch assistance services and other nonrecurring revenue that was not subject to revenue share expense. The company expects its gross margin to improve on a quarter-over-quarter basis for the balance of the year.
Operating expenses totaled $6.6 million, up from $3.5 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase was related to the company building a stronger base for future growth by expanding its product line, building out its sales organization and integrating two acquisitions over the last 18 months.
Net loss on a GAAP basis in the first quarter of 2020 was $2.2 million or $(0.15) per share, as compared to a net income of $6,500 or $0.00 per share in the year-ago quarter.
Non-GAAP net loss for the first quarter of 2020 was $830,000 or $(0.06) per share, compared to non-GAAP net income of $981,000 or $0.08 per share in the same year-ago period (see definition of these non-GAAP measures and reconciliation to GAAP, below).
While the company expects to return to profitability as its revenue grows, expenses related to investments in growth initiatives or non-cash charges could result in a loss in any given quarter. Given the opportunity at hand as discussed below, the company is focused on top-line growth while maintaining a strong balance sheet.
Cash and cash equivalents totaled $15.2 million at March 31, 2020, as compared to $18.9 million at December 31, 2019. The decrease was primarily due to cash used in operating activities. The company has continued to operate debt-free and expects to return to being cash-flow positive on a quarterly basis.
“Our top-line growth in the first quarter demonstrates the confidence our clients have in our digital health platform to deliver strong ROI, as well as validates the investments we made last year in our commercial team and platform extensions,” said OptimizeRx CEO, William Febbo. “Given the disruption and uncertainty created by COVID-19, having digital connectivity at the point-of-care has become even more relevant and our solutions are positioned very well.
“We are seeing an accelerated adoption of our platform, so clients can deliver critical information to providers and patients when and where it is needed the most, to assure adherence, affordability and effective care management.
“The connectivity to physicians we have built-out over the years, along with a measure of exclusivity by integrating our platform into leading EHR and e-prescribe systems, is becoming a must-have access point for our clients. Today, we reach 60% of the ambulatory market, and particularly at the point-of-care where a provider delivers care and prescribes.
“Backed by years of strong return on investment on programs, we have become deeply entrenched in our client base. We currently work with the world’s top 20 pharmaceutical companies and more than 60 other major clients – all of which have multiple siloed businesses in need of our services. The trust we have earned supports our continued shift to a SaaS-based, enterprise-level recurring revenue model. In fact, we continue to receive positive responses to proposals for enterprise-level engagements, which presently have a combined average annualized contract value of more than $3.6 million.
“We sit squarely in one of the fastest growing segments of health technology, which is point-of-care communications. This is where there is tremendous client demand for greater connectivity that is effective, transparent and measurable. Our addressable market is much larger today than even two months ago given the sudden need and adoption for telehealth technology. We are perfectly situated within this market, uniquely able to effect digital communication among providers, patients and the healthcare industry.
“Medical conferences, medical liaisons and live advisory boards have all been disrupted during the COVID-19 pandemic. We see this driving greater demand for digital communication that delivers mission-critical information, and particularly for our suite of solutions which offers tremendous value to all constituencies in healthcare.
“We also have strong tailwinds at our back. Most of our clients have decided to proceed with new launches, mostly due the complexities and costs around preparation, and as part of an overall strategy designed to prevent any substantial disruption. The FDA has committed to accelerating approvals of new medications and indications, so many new novel therapies will be coming to market over the coming months and years. We expect this to provide a healthy pipeline of new opportunities.
“Looking out to the remainder of 2020, we will be intensifying our focus on organic growth, increasing our market share, and securing more recurring revenue through enterprise-level engagements. We believe we have the team, platform and balance sheet to unlock much more value for all our stakeholders, and keep us on track for another year of strong growth and market expansion.”

Definition and Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This earnings release includes a presentation of non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share or non-GAAP EPS, both of which are non-GAAP financial measures.
The company defines non-GAAP net income (loss) as GAAP net income (loss) with an adjustment to add back depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, acquisition expenses, income or loss related to the fair value of contingent consideration, and deferred income taxes. Non-GAAP EPS is defined as non-GAAP net income (loss) divided by the number of weighted average shares outstanding on a basic and diluted basis. The company has provided non-GAAP financial measures to aid investors in better understanding its performance. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide additional insight into the operations and cashflow of the company.
Because of varying available valuation methodologies, subjective assumptions and the variety of equity instruments that can impact a company’s non-cash operating expenses, management believes that providing non-GAAP financial measures that excludes non-cash expenses allows for meaningful comparisons between the company’s core business operating results and those of other companies, as well as provides an important tool for financial and operational decision making and for evaluating the company’s own core business operating results over different periods of time.
The company’s non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP EPS measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in the company’s industry, as other companies in the industry may calculate such non-GAAP financial results differently. The company’s non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP EPS are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to operating income or as an indication of operating performance or any other measure of performance derived in accordance with GAAP. The company does not consider these non-GAAP measures to be substitutes for or superior to the information provided by its GAAP financial results.
The table, “Reconciliation of non-GAAP to GAAP Financial Measures,” included below, provides a reconciliation of non-GAAP net income (loss) and non-GAAP EPS for the three months periods ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.
