IRVING, Texas, June 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HMS Holdings Corp. (the "Company" or "HMS") (NASDAQ:HMSY) announced the filing today of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 (the "2016 Form 10-K") and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2017 (the "2017 Q1 Form 10-Q") with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). As a result of today's filings, the Company believes it is now in full compliance with NASDAQ's listing requirements.
"We are very pleased to have completed the year-end 2016 audit and first quarter 2017 review. The results as filed show no change to period end reserves in the Estimated Liability for CMS Appeals and the Accounts Receivable (AR) Allowance for 2016 and a reduction of approximately $900,000 in the AR Allowance we initially posted for the first quarter of 2017. The only difference from previously reported numbers for 2016 is that certain AR write-offs totaling approximately $6.3 million reported in SG&A have been reclassified and presented as a contra revenue item, which has no impact on previously reported net income or adjusted EPS," said Jeff Sherman, CFO. "With these filings completed, we will continue our focus on achieving our growth objectives for the balance of 2017."
The 2016 Form 10-K and the 2017
Q1 Form 10-Q are available on the SEC website at http://www.sec.gov and on the HMS Investor Relations website at http://investor.hms.com/financials.cfm.
