(NASDAQ-GS: NH), a next-generation, evidence-based, personalized healthcare company, today reported financial results for its 2016 second quarter ended June 30, 2016.  The company completed its initial public offering (IPO) in early June 2016, raising net proceeds of approximately $83.2 million.

For the 2016 second quarter, total net revenues increased 167% to $31.5 million from $11.8 million in last year’s second quarter.  Gross profit grew 69% to $9.3 million, from $5.5 million, for the 2015 second quarter.  Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses were $47.2 million, including stock compensation expense related to the company’s IPO, compared with $17.8 million for the prior year second quarter.  Research and development (R&D) expenses, including stock compensation expense related to the company’s IPO, increased to $24.3 million from $5.0 million in the comparable quarter of last year.

With the inclusion of stock based compensation expense related to the IPO, equal to $0.42 per share, net loss was $54.1 million, or $0.52 per share, compared with $17.2 million, or $0.21 per share, for the 2015 second quarter.  Financial results for the 2016 second quarter included approximately $43.7 million in stock based compensation, equal to $0.42 per share, related to the vesting of equity tied to the company’s Initial public offering.  On a non-GAAP basis, for the 2016 second quarter, adjusted net loss was $16.5 million, or $0.15 per share, compared with adjusted net loss of $14.3 million, or $0.15 per share, in the prior year second quarter.

“We achieved stellar topline results across all of our revenue lines, reflecting how strongly customers have responded to NantHealth’s innovative offerings,” said Patrick Soon-Shiong, M.D., chief executive officer and chairman of NantHealth.  “Our strong second-quarter financial performance included revenues recognized from several large implementations and service contracts for our technology offerings, which were completed and delivered earlier than anticipated.  As a result, we recognized certain revenues in our second quarter that we previously projected to be recorded in the second half of 2016.

“Looking ahead, we are focused on adding customers and executing on our opportunities across the spectrum of our offerings.  In addition, the acquisitions we completed in the last year are paying dividends and our GPS Cancer product continues to gain traction and acceptance among insurers. Combined, these efforts and initiatives will drive our growth in the near term and beyond.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release contains references to Non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted net loss and  adjusted net loss per share, which are financial measures that are not prepared in conformity with United States generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP).  The Company’s management believes that the presentation of Non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information regarding operational performance, because it enhances an investor’s overall understanding of the financial results for the Company’s core business.  Additionally, it provides a basis for the comparison of the financial results for the Company’s core business between current, past and future periods.  Other companies may define these measures in different ways.  Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered only as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for or as a superior measure to, financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  All loss per share numbers contained in this news release are calculated based on one class of common stock and do not incorporate the effects, if any, of using the two-class method.

Adjusted net loss excludes, among others, the effects of (1) income/loss from equity method investments, (2) stock based compensation expense, (3) intangible amortization, (4) corporate restructuring expenses, (5) acquisition related compensation expense, and (6) acquisition-related sales incentives, which have been recorded as contra revenue.

Adjusted shares outstanding include Series F redeemable shares as if converted on January 1, 2015.
