IRVING, Texas, Aug. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HMS Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: HMSY) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

“HMS is showing its organizational agility and financial strength, and the fundamentals of our business remain strong as our nation and the world continue to address the circumstances surrounding COVID-19,” said Bill Lucia, Chairman and CEO. “With lower utilization rates, client work pauses, and shifts in industry focus, COVID-19 had a negative impact on our Company's second quarter financial performance, with revenue, net income and adjusted EBITDA declining on both a sequential and year-over-year basis. Despite these challenges, we maintained robust cash flows, with cash and cash equivalents up 38.6% since the end of 2019 to reach $193 million at the end of the second quarter.

“Our organization moved swiftly to remain fully operational in support of our clients while protecting our employees' health and safety. We continue to invest in our business to bolster future growth as well as deliver strong client value to meet the industry's evolving needs. We believe strong cost containment and clinical outcome capabilities are going to grow in importance both during and after this health crisis, particularly as State budgets are pressured due to lower revenue and higher Medicaid costs.

“Regardless of the recent headwinds we have encountered, we remain well positioned to deliver value to our clients and our business outlook for the second half of 2020 and full year 2021 remains positive. We are seeing signs of improving healthcare utilization and other trends that should be beneficial for the HMS business. For example, elective procedures are beginning to increase; Medicaid enrollment is rising due primarily to higher unemployment; and, our Payment Integrity business line is expected to improve during the third quarter as CMS and other clients are lifting pauses on certain medical record requests and audits enacted during a COVID-19 emergency period to reduce administrative burden on hospitals,” Lucia concluded.

Second Quarter

Total revenue in the second quarter of 2020 was $142.7 million, compared to total revenue of $168.2 million in the prior year second quarter (-15.2%). 2Q 2019 included $10.5 million in revenue as the Company released its remaining contract-related balances under its original Medicare RAC Contract (the “2Q 2019 Reserve Release”). Revenue in the second quarter of 2020 from the Accent business, which was acquired at the end of 2019, was $10.8 million. Organic revenue in the second quarter of 2020, excluding Accent and the 2Q 2019 Reserve Release, declined 16.4%.

Coordination of Benefits (COB) revenue was $106.7 million in the second quarter of 2020 compared to $105.1 million in the prior year second quarter (+1.6%). Organic COB revenue, excluding Accent, was $95.9 million (-8.8%) due to lower claim volumes resulting from circumstances related to COVID-19.

Payment Integrity (PI) revenue was $24.4 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $49.1 million in the prior year second quarter (-50.3%). Excluding the 2Q 2019 Reserve Release, total PI revenue decreased 36.8% compared to the prior year quarter due to lower claim volumes, primarily driven by temporary suspension or reduction of certain client contract work resulting from circumstances related to COVID-19, as previously disclosed. 

Population Health Management (PHM) revenue was $11.5 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $14.0 million in the prior year second quarter (-17.6%) due to the suspension of certain consumer engagement programs primarily related to COVID-19 circumstances which more than offset an increase in COVID-19-specific program activities.

Net income in the second quarter of 2020 was $6.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to net income of $29.1 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2019. Net income in the second quarter of 2019 included a net benefit of $0.07 per diluted share related to the 2Q 2019 Reserve Release.

Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2020 was $27.8 million, compared to $47.6 million excluding a net benefit of $8.2 million related to the 2Q 2019 Reserve Release in the prior year second quarter (-41.6%).

Adjusted EPS in the second quarter of 2020 was $0.19 per diluted share, compared to $0.34 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2019 excluding the 2Q 2019 Reserve Release of $0.07 per diluted share (-44.1%).

Adjusted EBITDA for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $74.9 million, compared to $96.8 million in the prior year period, which included a net benefit of $8.2 million related to the 2Q 2019 Reserve Release (-22.6%). Excluding this benefit, Adjusted EBITDA decreased 15.5% compared to the prior year period.

Adjusted EPS for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $0.51 per diluted share.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports and discusses its operating results using financial measures consistent with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). From time to time, in press releases, financial presentations, earnings conference calls or otherwise, the Company may disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release should not be viewed as alternatives or substitutes for the Company's reported GAAP results.

The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release are relevant and provide useful information to the Company's management, investors, and other interested parties about the Company's operating performance because the measures allow them to understand and compare the Company's actual and expected operating results during the prior, current and future periods in a more consistent manner.
