Seamus Lagan, chief executive officer of Rennova Health, said, “Our 2015 financial results reflect challenges faced by all rehab laboratories as a result of lower third-party reimbursement. As reported, this sector represents a significant percentage of our revenue and this volatility has adversely impacted our ability to secure new customers, to retain existing customers and to receive payment from billings. However, we believe the worst of the volatility is behind us and that our business strategy of providing services with supportive solutions creates a more sustainable relationship with our customers. We are comfortable that 2016 will bring significant improvement with increased contracted billing and improved efficiencies that will enable us to meet the growing need for information by payers and, in turn, a resumption of payments. We expect this improvement to be evident beginning with the second quarter of this year. In 2015 we wrote down $19.5 million in accounts receivables related to those at least 12 months old, a portion of which we believe we will recover. We have amended our revenue recognition policies to reduce and prevent significant bad debt in the future. We have also been successful in securing in-network contracts with payers, which expands the potential target customer base and should facilitate prompt, predictable payment for our lab services.
“We have recently undertaken a number of initiatives for our supportive software solutions and revenue cycle management segments that are expected to positively impact our financial performance in 2016,” Mr. Lagan continued. “In October we launched a new electronic health records (EHR) product into the rehabilitation sector from Medical Mime, our EHR subsidiary, and are pleased with the market reception to date. We now have a number of customers using our EHR, our lab services and our medical billing services, which we believe will lead to stronger, more sustainable relationships. We are actively expanding our sources of revenue from laboratory services and new customers to include revenue from the sale of supportive software solutions and medical billing services.”
Commenting on future plans, Mr. Lagan said, “Our intention is to capitalize on recent disruption in the toxicology testing industry to gain new clients. We plan to expand into new geographies in order to grow our client base not only for laboratory testing, but also to capture a share of the market for accompanying software solutions and medical billing services. We will continue to add more tests to our menu of offerings. Our recent agreement to partner with Genomas to offer the revolutionary PhyzioType Systems for DNA-guided management and prescription of drugs is an important addition to our diagnostic capabilities that we will be nurturing this year. In addition, our direct-to-consumer diagnostic product is at an advanced stage of readiness for launch later this year. This is a home-collection test kit that is intended to provide added-value interpretation and decision support directly to the consumer. Initially, we plan to leverage our current testing capabilities to offer routine testing in a convenient, cost-effective and informative manner.
“Along with Epinex, Inc. we continue to develop a revolutionary test for the early detection of diabetes, and using the knowledge and expertise attained from the merger with CollabRx, we also will continue to consider our options for cancer diagnostics and decision support.
“We are very excited about the prospects for Rennova and look forward to the future with optimism. We operate in very significant and established market sectors where even small success can lead to significant revenue. The total U.S. market for drug and alcohol rehabilitation testing is estimated at $35 billion per year, with Affordable Care Act mandates expected to drive growth as an additional 3 million to 5 million people gain coverage. The total U.S. market for our pain management diagnostics is estimated at $2 billion to $4 billion per year, with 5 million to 8 million people in the U.S. taking opioids. There are 14,500 to 16,700 outpatient clinics in the U.S., which represents a significant portion of this marketplace. The total market for genomics testing and interpretation, including therapy selection, represents an exciting growth opportunity for Rennova over the next few years, with an annual market expected to approach $100 billion by 2020. We are confident we have a strategy and the tools that will allow us to resume profitable growth in 2016 and beyond,” Mr. Lagan concluded.
Total gross revenues for 2015 were $37.9 million, compared with $77.2 million for 2014, a decline of 51%. Total net revenues for 2015 were $18.4 million, compared with $57.9 million for 2014. Laboratory services revenues for 2015 were $17.5 million, compared with $57.2 million for 2014. The decline in net revenues related primarily to a decrease in the net recovery rate of revenues from approximately 25% of gross billings to insurance carriers to 20% of gross billings to insurance carriers, a 25% decline in insured test volume, and a $18.0 million increase in reserves for receivables aged over 360 days. The decrease in the net recovery rate resulted in a decrease in net revenues of $11.4 million. The decrease in insured test volume resulted in a decrease in net revenues of $11.5 million. Supportive software solutions segment revenues were $0.8 million for 2015, compared with $0.7 million in 2014, an increase of 8%. The increase was due to the launch of the company’s Medical Mime product into the rehab sector during the fourth quarter of 2015.
Laboratory services operating loss was $17.2 million in 2015, compared with operating income of $19.8 million in 2014. The decline relates to the decline in net revenues and the impairment of goodwill and intangibles of $5.0 million, partially offset by the decrease in direct costs of revenue. The decline in direct cost of revenue resulted from the transition of a significant portion of the company’s testing from external reference labs to internal processing, resulting in a 37.5% decrease in direct costs per sample and an 8% decline in total samples processed.
The Supportive Software Solutions segment operating loss was $7.8 million in 2015, compared with an operating loss of $0.8 million in 2014. The decline relates primarily to the impairment of goodwill and intangibles of $2.7 million and increased development spend related to the launch and refinement of the company’s EHR product into the rehab sector of $3.2 million.
Corporate and other operating expenses increased to $8.0 million in 2015 from $3.1 million in 2014. The increase relates primarily to an increase of $2.9 million in non-cash stock-compensation expenses, $1.7 million in merger, acquisition and integration expenses related to the acquisition of CollabRx, and the expansion of the company’s management team.
The company had a negative provision for income taxes of $9.0 million for 2015, compared with a provision for income taxes of $7.6 million for 2014. The company had $2.4 million in income tax receivable on its balance sheet.
Net loss attributable to common stockholders for 2015 was $36.4 million, or $2.93 per share, compared with net income attributable to common stockholders of $2.8 million, or $0.22 cents per diluted share, for 2014.
The company had cash and cash equivalents of $8.8 million as of December 31, 2015, compared with $2.4 million as of December 31, 2014.
