OptimizeRx Reports Second Quarter 2018 Results; Net Revenue Up 78% to Record $5.1 Million, Driving $0.02 EPS
ROCHESTER, Mich., August 7, 2018 — OptimizeRx Corp. (OTCQB: OPRX), a leading global provider of digital health messaging for the pharmaceutical industry, reported results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018. Quarterly comparisons are to the same year-ago quarter.
|●||Net revenue increased 78% to a record $5.1 million.|
|●||Gross margin improved from 44.0% to 56.1%.|
|●||Operating expense as a percentage of net revenue reduced from 57% to 51%.|
|●||Net income of $281,000 or $0.02 per diluted share vs. a loss|
|●||Raised $9 million in private placement|
|●||Up-listed to the Nasdaq Capital Market|
|●||Signed new pharmaceutical manufacturer brands for distributing digital health messaging through OptimizeRx’s expanding network of EHR channel partners.|
|●||Partnered with Patient Connect to deliver real-time digital heath messaging at point-of-care across Europe and provide a broader solution set for global brands.|
Net revenue in the second quarter of 2018 increased 78% to a record $5.1 million versus $2.9 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase was primarily due to growth in OptimizeRx’s two core products of financial and brand messaging, coupled with broader distribution through the company’s new channel partners. The launch of new pharmaceutical brands also contributed to the increase.
Gross margin improved to 56.1% in the second quarter of 2018 from 44.0% in the year-ago quarter. The improvement was due to favorable product mix and reduced revenue share cost. The company remains focused on improving margins, and maintains its gross margin target of at least 55% through the fourth quarter of 2018.
Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2018 were $2.6 million, up from $1.6 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase was primarily due to additional expenses related to growth initiatives, including expanding the company’s executive and sales team. However, operating expense as a percentage of revenue decreased to 51% as compared to 57% in the same year-ago quarter.
Net income for the second quarter of 2018 was $281,000 or $0.02 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $362,000 or $(0.04) per share in the year-ago quarter. Profitability was primarily due to the increase in revenue and decrease in operating expense as a percentage of revenue. The company expects to continue to be profitable on a quarterly basis, although one-time expenses related to growth initiatives may result in quarterly fluctuations in profitability.
Cash and cash equivalents totaled $12.0 million at June 30, 2018, as compared to $5.1 million at December 31, 2017. The increase in cash was due to $9.0 million equity raise completed in May 2018. The company has continued to operate debt-free and expects to generate positive cashflow from operations for the remainder of 2018.
“In Q2, we realized our seventh consecutive quarter of revenue growth and achieved profitability through adding new pharmaceutical brands, growing our digital health messaging revenue and expanding our distribution channels,” said OptimizeRx CEO, William Febbo.
“OptimizeRx continued to be the largest network of its kind, with promotional programs incorporated into more than 50% of the ambulatory market and with more healthcare providers at 'point-of-prescribe' than any other network. This broad market reach provides us a substantial competitive advantage as we continue to grow our core products and pharma customer base. We continue to believe our addressable market is worth well north of $500 million to a billion once the market fully adopts this channel.
“Revenue was up 78% from the year-ago quarter and up 24% sequentially, demonstrating how our low fixed-overhead model continues to support a highly-scalable financial opportunity. This was also evident in our expanding margins. In fact, at 56.1% for the quarter, we surpassed our previously announced gross margin goal of 55%, and we expect to again exceed this goal in the second half of the year.
“For the second half of 2018, we will remain focused on revenue generation from our core products and expanding our channel and partner networks both domestically and internationally. We see this driving continued gross margin improvement as we scale.
“We plan to use a portion of the proceeds from our recent $9.0 million raise to make additional sales and channel investments for expanding further into our core ambulatory market where we continue to demonstrate high ROI for pharma marketing spend. We also plan to further expand into the hospital market, a new channel for us that also represents a significant growth opportunity. In addition, we will increase investment in the underlying technology that powers our solutions and will invest in our data strategy.
“While investments in these growth initiatives may result in quarterly fluctuations in profitability, we expect them to drive further strong topline growth and margin expansion while sustaining our position as the market leader in our space.”
