Phreesia Announces Fiscal First Quarter 2023 Results

06/02/2022

RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Phreesia, Inc. (NYSE: PHR) (“Phreesia” or the "Company") announced financial results today for the fiscal first quarter ended April 30, 2022.

“We started the year strong with gains in new clients and expansion within existing clients across healthcare services and life sciences and began to generate operating leverage from our accelerated investments in fiscal years 2021 and 2022,” said CEO and Co-Founder Chaim Indig.

Fiscal First Quarter 2023 Highlights

  • Revenue was $63.4 million in the quarter as compared to $48.3 million in the same period in the prior year, an increase of 31%.
  • Average number of healthcare services clients was 2,526 in the quarter as compared to 1,902 in the same period in the prior year, an increase of 33%.
  • Average revenue per healthcare services client was $19,193 in the quarter as compared to $20,222 in the same period in the prior year, a decrease of 5%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was negative $30.6 million in the quarter compared to positive $0.1 million in the same period in the prior year.
  • Cash and cash equivalents as of April 30, 2022 was $269.2 million, a decrease of $44.6 million compared to January 31, 2022, driven primarily by net cash used in operating activities and capital expenditures.

Outlook for Fiscal 2023

We are maintaining our revenue outlook for fiscal 2023 of $271 million to $275 million implying year-over-year growth of 27% to 29%.

We are raising our Adjusted EBITDA outlook for fiscal year 2023 to negative $126 million to negative $122 million from a previous range of negative $154 million to negative $149 million. This change reflects improvements in overall productivity and efficiency across our organization.

We maintain expectations that our Adjusted EBITDA outlook in fiscal year 2023 will be the low annual mark for fiscal years 2023 to 2025 and now expect to reach profitability1 in fiscal year 2025.

We have not reconciled the Adjusted EBITDA outlook to GAAP Net income (loss) because we do not provide an outlook for GAAP Net income (loss) due to the uncertainty and potential variability of Other (income) expense, net and (Benefit from) provision for income taxes, which are reconciling items between Adjusted EBITDA and GAAP Net income (loss). Because we cannot reasonably predict such items, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure outlook to the corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable effort. We caution, however, that such items could have a significant impact on the calculation of GAAP Net income (loss). For further information regarding the non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release, please see “Non-GAAP financial measures” below.

1For the purposes of this statement, we define "profitability" in terms of Adjusted EBITDA.

Fiscal 2025 Target

We are maintaining our annualized revenue target of $500 million to be achieved during a quarter of fiscal year 2025.2

We believe our platform and diverse revenue streams offer us multiple paths for achieving our target.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is provided at the end of this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”

2 For our target revenue, annualized is defined as multiplying the highest-revenue quarter in fiscal year 2025 by four.

Recent Events

On March 28, 2022, we entered into the First Loan Modification Agreement to the Second Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement (the "Second SVB Facility") with Silicon Valley Bank ("SVB") (as amended, the "Third SVB Facility") to increase the borrowing capacity from $50.0 million to $100.0 million. The Third SVB Facility also reduced the interest rate to the greater of 3.25% or the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate minus 0.5%, amended the annual commitment fees to approximately $0.3 million per year and amended the quarterly fee to 0.15% per annum of the average unused revolving line under the facility.

Non-GAAP financial measures

This press release and statements made during the above-referenced webcast may include certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined by SEC rules.

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or loss or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss before interest expense (income), net, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and before stock-based compensation expense and other expense (income), net.

We have provided below a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. We have presented Adjusted EBITDA in this press release and our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget, and to develop short and long-term operational plans. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of the amounts eliminated in calculating Adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and board of directors. We have not reconciled our Adjusted EBITDA outlook to GAAP Net income (loss) because we do not provide an outlook for GAAP Net income (loss) due to the uncertainty and potential variability of Other (income) expense, net and (Benefit from) provision for income taxes, which are reconciling items between Adjusted EBITDA and GAAP Net income (loss). Because we cannot reasonably predict such items, a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measure outlook to the corresponding GAAP measure is not available without unreasonable effort. We caution, however, that such items could have a significant impact on the calculation of GAAP Net income (loss).

Our use of Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are as follows:

  • Although depreciation and amortization expense are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect: (1) changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; (2) the potentially dilutive impact of non-cash stock-based compensation; (3) tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us; or (4) Interest expense (income), net; and
  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA or similarly titled measures differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these and other limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA along with other GAAP-based financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net loss, and our GAAP financial results. The following table presents a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss for each of the periods indicated:

We remain focused on building secure and reliable products that derive a strong return on investment for our clients and implementing them with speed and ease. This strategy continues to enable us to grow our network of healthcare services clients. As disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2022, during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2022, we renamed our key metric "provider clients (average over period)" to "healthcare services clients (average over period)". We also renamed our key metric "average revenue per provider client" to "average revenue per healthcare services client."

  • Healthcare services clients. We define healthcare services clients as the average number of healthcare services client organizations that generate revenue each month during the applicable period. In cases where we act as a subcontractor providing white-label services to our partner's clients, we treat the contractual relationship as a single healthcare services client. We believe growth in the number of healthcare services clients is a key indicator of the performance of our business and depends, in part, on our ability to successfully develop and market our Platform to healthcare services organizations that are not yet clients. While growth in the number of healthcare services clients is an important indicator of expected revenue growth, it also informs our management of the areas of our business that will require further investment to support expected future healthcare services client growth. For example, as the number of healthcare services clients increases, we may need to add to our customer support team and invest to maintain effectiveness and performance of our Platform and software for our healthcare services clients and their patients.
  • Average revenue per healthcare services client. We define average revenue per healthcare services client as the total subscription and related services and payment processing revenue generated from healthcare services clients in a given period divided by the average number of healthcare services clients that generate revenue each month during that same period. We are focused on continually delivering value to our healthcare services clients and believe that our ability to increase average revenue per healthcare services client is an indicator of the long-term value of the Phreesia platform.

  • Patient payment volume. We believe that patient payment volume is an indicator of both the underlying health of our healthcare services clients’ businesses and the continuing shift of healthcare costs to patients. We measure patient payment volume as the total dollar volume of transactions between our healthcare services clients and their patients utilizing our payment platform, including via credit and debit cards that we process as a payment facilitator as well as cash and check payments and credit and debit transactions for which we act as a gateway to other payment processors.
  • Payment facilitator volume percentage. We define payment facilitator volume percentage as the volume of credit and debit card patient payment volume that we process as a payment facilitator as a percentage of total patient payment volume. Payment facilitator volume is a major driver of our payment processing revenue. Our payment facilitator volume percentage could decline slightly over time should we increase our penetration of enterprise customers that are less likely to use Phreesia as a payment facilitator.
