Management Commentary
“We’ve had a strong start to the new year and are pleased with the Company’s financial and operational performance. We finished the quarter cash flow positive from operations, generating meaningful revenue growth, and closing on client renewals and new business alike,” said OptimizeRx CEO, William Febbo. “The demand for OptimizeRx’s digital health platform and services has increasingly become self-evident as we continue to invest in the business, supporting further enterprise growth well into the near and foreseeable future.

“To put this into perspective, of the 46 enterprise engagements announced at the end of 2020, we closed on 33 of these this quarter, worth $25 million in annual contract value. What is clear is that the business is highly resistant to macro shocks as the acceleration and adoption of digital health remains a long-term trend.

“In order to support this exciting growth while maintaining operational excellence, we have enhanced the Company’s infrastructure across strategic functions and leadership roles. This expansion of human capital is directly in line with the planned buildout of a vibrantly growing, highly scalable technology business across its sales, technology centers, engagement and new business development lifecycles. The result of our success is not just reflected in our financial results but have been shared in the feedback that we receive from clients and partners. We take pride in the relevance of OptimizeRx’s suite of solutions for the enhancement of stakeholder engagement and alignment to the patient journey both inside and outside of the electronic health record, and daily workflows of physicians and patients accessing our solutions.

Mr. Febbo concluded, “We have been very fortunate to be an early mover and proponent of digital health communications and care management, connecting life sciences to the full care continuum. The growth and recognition that OptimizeRx has earned in the last few years has been truly remarkable and we look forward to continuing to serve patients, healthcare providers and the life sciences while delivering significant shareholder value to our investors.”

Q12021 Financial Summary

Total revenue reported for the three months ended March 31, 2021 was approximately $11.2 million, an increase of 48% over the approximately $7.6 million from the same period in 2020. The increased revenue resulted from increases in sales in all our solutions.

Gross margin decreased to 55% from 57% in the year-ago quarter, with the decrease related to a change in solution mix.

Operating expenses totaled $6.8 million and remained relatively flat from $6.6 million in the same year-ago quarter. The moderate increase was due to the company’s efforts to expand its solutions and build out its organization for future growth.

Net loss on a GAAP basis was approximately $0.6 million or $(0.04) per basic and diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $2.2 million or $(0.15) per basic and fully diluted share in the first quarter of 2020.

Non-GAAP net income was $0.6 million or $0.04 per basic and $0.03 per fully diluted share, compared to non-GAAP net loss of $0.8 million or $(0.06) per basic and fully share in the same year-ago period (see definition of this non-GAAP measure and reconciliation to GAAP, below).

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $83 million as of March 31, 2021, as compared to $10.5 million as of December 31, 2020. This was a result of an equity offering in February where we raised $71 million.

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 ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.
