SANTA MONICA, Calif., November 04, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ontrak, Inc. (NASDAQ: OTRK) ("Ontrak" or the "Company"), a leading AI-powered and telehealth-enabled, virtualized healthcare company, today reported its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Management Commentary

"During the third quarter we made important progress on building out our sales pipeline. We are now in active discussions with three of the larger national health plans in the country, and we are exchanging data and creating financial models for 4 employer organizations and multiple providers. Our confidence in our ability to fast track growth and convert our pipeline is strong, given the overall market dynamics and our new management team. With industry renowned CMO Dr. Robert Accordino engaging with senior clinical decision makers at customers and prospects, our new Chief Customer Officer Mary Lou Osborne from Aetna leading the conversion of our sales pipeline, and newly appointed CIO Arik Hill accelerating our AI-enabled identification, screening and monitoring capabilities, I feel confident that the company is well positioned to return to historical growth rates."

Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results Highlights

  • Revenue for the third quarter of 2021 was $18.6 million, representing a 23% decrease compared to the same period in 2020.

  • Operating loss for the third quarter of 2021 was $(5.5) million, yielding an operating loss margin of (29)% compared to an operating loss of $(3.0) million for the same period in 2020, yielding an operating loss margin of (13)%.

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2021 was $(1.7) million compared to adjusted EBITDA of $(0.8) million for the same period in 2020.

  • Net loss for the third quarter of 2021 was $(7.9) million, or a $(0.54) diluted net loss per common share (after deduction for declared and undeclared preferred stock dividends), compared to net loss of $(5.7) million, or a $(0.36) diluted net loss per common share (after deduction for undeclared preferred stock dividends) for the same period in 2020.

  • Non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2021 was $(4.5) million, or a $(0.35) non-GAAP diluted net loss per common share (after deduction for declared and undeclared preferred stock dividends), compared to non-GAAP net loss of $(2.9) million, or a $(0.20) non-GAAP diluted net loss per common share (after deduction for undeclared preferred stock dividends) for the same period in 2020.

Third Quarter 2021 and Recent Operating Highlights

  • Total enrolled members numbered 9,395 at the end of Q3 2021, which includes 861 Ontrak-A members and 3,807 Ontrak-CI members (see discussion below regarding the termination notice received in August 2021) remaining in our program.

  • On August 18, 2021, the Company received a termination notice from its second largest customer of their intent not to continue the Ontrak program past December 31, 2021. We believe the notification was for reasons specific to the customer's corporate shift in strategic direction, and is not reflective of the performance or value of the program generally. From inception of the contract in July 2020, we have billed this customer approximately $42 million of the previously expected 3-year $90 million contract and expect their members to graduate or disenroll before the end of 2021.

  • On August 30, 2021, Mary Louise Osborne joined Ontrak as Chief Customer Officer. Ms. Osborne brings a proven track record of driving accelerated growth, expansion and operational performance in both commercial and government businesses.

  • On August 30, 2021, Arik Hill joined Ontrak as Chief Information Officer. Mr. Hill brings a wealth of experience overseeing strategic direction for infrastructure development that supports exponential growth and integrated emerging technologies into innovative digital solutions, including development of digital platforms and applications that leverage AI and cutting-edge technologies.

  • On September 27, 2021, Dr. Robert Accordino joined Ontrak as Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Accordino, an industry thought leader and faculty member of Harvard Medical School, brings a deep network of behavioral health industry relationships, a wealth of experience in measurement-based behavioral healthcare, and engagement in clinical research which has resulted in over 40 peer-reviewed publications, book chapters and articles.

Forward-Looking Statements

Except for statements of historical fact, the matters discussed in this press release are forward-looking and made pursuant to the Safe Harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward looking statements may include for example statements regarding: expectations regarding future revenue reflecting current expectations with our existing health plan customers regarding outreach pool, budget considerations and timing of expansions; the strength of our pipeline; our ability to fast track growth and convert our pipeline; acceleration of our AI-enabled identification, screening, and operational performance; and driving accelerated growth, expansion and performance. These forward-looking statements reflect numerous assumptions and involve a variety of risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, which may cause actual results to differ materially from stated expectations. These risk factors include, among others, dependence on key personnel and the ability to recruit, retain and develop a large and diverse workforce; high customer concentration and the ability of our customer to terminate our contracts for convenience; intense competition and substantial regulation in the health care industry; changes in regulations or issuance of new regulations or interpretations; limited operating history; our inability to execute our business plan; increase our revenue and achieve profitability; lower than anticipated eligible members under our contracts; our inability to recognize revenue; lack of outcomes and statistically significant formal research studies; difficulty enrolling new members and maintaining existing members in our programs; the risk that the treatment programs might not be effective; difficulty in developing, exploiting and protecting proprietary technologies; business disruption and related risks resulting from the outbreak of the novel coronavirus 2019; the risks associated with the adequacy of our existing cash resources and our ability to continue as a going concern; our ability to raise additional capital when needed and our liquidity; and risks related to our ability to realize the potential benefits of and to effectively integrate acquisitions. You are urged to consider statements that include the words "may," "will," "could," "should," "believes," "estimates," "projects," "potential," "expects," "plan," "anticipates," "intends," "continues," "forecast," "designed," "goal," or the negative of those words or other comparable words to be uncertain and forward-looking For a further list and description of the risks and uncertainties we face, please refer to our most recent Securities and Exchange Commission filings which are available on its website at http://www.sec.gov. Such forward-looking statements are current only as of the date they are made, and we assume no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the Company has provided in this press release and the quarterly conference call held on the date hereof certain non-GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures presented include EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Non-GAAP net loss, and Non-GAAP net loss per common share, which are not U.S. GAAP financial measures, and clarifies and enhances an understanding of our past performance. We believe that the presentation of these financial measures enhances an investor’s understanding of our financial performance. We further believe that these financial measures are useful financial metrics to assess our operating performance from period-to-period by excluding certain items that we believe are not representative of our core business.

EBITDA consists of net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses. Adjusted EBITDA consists of net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, reduction in workforce costs, acquisition related costs, and (gain) loss on change in fair value of warrant liability and contingent liability. We believe that making such adjustments provides investors meaningful information to understand our results of operations and the ability to analyze our financial and business trends on a period-to-period basis.

Non-GAAP net loss consists of net loss adjusted for stock-based compensation, acquisition related costs, (gain) loss on change in fair value of warrant liability and contingent liability, gain on forgiveness of PPP loan, and write-off of debt issuance costs. Non-GAAP net loss per common share consists of loss per share adjusted for non-GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders. We believe that making such adjustments provides investors meaningful information to understand our results of operations and the ability to analyze our financial and business trends on a period-to-period basis.

We believe the above non-GAAP financial measures are commonly used by investors to evaluate our performance and that of our competitors. However, our use of the term EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Non-GAAP net loss and Non-GAAP net loss per common share may vary from that of others in our industry. Neither EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA Margin, Non-GAAP net loss nor Non-GAAP net loss per common share should be considered as an alternative to net loss before taxes, net loss, net loss per common share or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP as measures of performance.
