Hooper Holmes (NYSE MKT:HH) today announced financial results for the
second quarter ended June 30, 2014.
Pursuant to the previously announced agreement with Clinical Reference
Laboratory, Inc., the second quarter operating results of the Company's
Heritage Labs and Hooper Holmes Services businesses are accounted for as
discontinued operations in the Company's consolidated statements. For
the first time, the Company is reporting consolidated revenues and costs
of sale for Health & Wellness operations on a stand-alone basis.
Consolidated revenues totaled $6.7 million for the second quarter of
2014, representing an increase of $2.3 million, or 53.8%, from the
second quarter of 2013. The Company recorded a net loss of $2.8 million,
or $(0.04) per share, for the second quarter of 2014, as compared to a
net loss of $5.0 million, or $(0.07) per share, for the second quarter
of 2013. The net loss for the second quarter of 2014 includes losses
incurred in the discontinued operations and $0.4 million of transition
costs associated with consolidating operations in Olathe, KS.
The Company's revenue increase is primarily due to an increased number
of screenings. Health & Wellness operations performed 37.3% more health
screenings in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the same period of
2013. Revenue increases were also driven by annual contractual price
adjustments related to a long-term clinical study contract.
Sales, General and Administrative (SG&A) expenses for the three-month
period ended June 30, 2014 decreased $0.5 million to $4.0 million
compared to the prior year period. The decrease is due to reduced
corporate headcount and lower professional and consulting services. SG&A
expenses include one-time costs of $0.4 million associated with the
transition of the Company's headquarters from New Jersey to Olathe, KS.
On April 16, 2014 Hooper Holmes announced a strategic alliance with
Clinical Reference Laboratory, Inc. ("CRL"), under which CRL will become
the Company's exclusive provider of laboratory testing services and
Hooper will become a member of CRL's preferred provider network for
wellness programs. CRL will acquire certain assets comprising the
businesses of Heritage Labs and Hooper Holmes Services in a transaction
that is expected to close on or before September 2, 2014. Accordingly,
the assets to be sold to CRL now qualify as assets held for sale.
As of June 30, 2014, cash and cash equivalents totaled $3.1 million,
with no borrowings outstanding under the Company's credit facility, and
working capital of $6.0 million.
On August 7, 2014 the Company closed the sale of its New Jersey property
with a purchase price of $3.0 million, resulting in $2.54 million of net
Commenting on the 2014 second quarter, Henry E. Dubois, President and
CEO of Hooper Holmes, stated: "Our first half year-over-year revenue
growth positions us well for continued Health & Wellness growth.
Reporting Health & Wellness revenues and costs of sale on a stand-alone
basis now provides clarity on our core business performance. We expect
transition costs related to exiting the Life Insurance sector to end by
the fourth quarter 2014, completing our transformation to a stand-alone
Health & Wellness business."
Mr. Dubois continued, "We expect to conclude our strategic alliance with
CRL by September 2nd and are now completing the necessary
operational integration prior to close. Our Company has a clean balance
sheet with no debt, and access to capital. We are continuing to focus on
long-term strategy, and on delivering shareholder value."
