Phreesia, Inc. (NYSE: PHR) ("Phreesia") announced financial results today for the fiscal first quarter ended April 30, 2021.

"We carried the momentum of the strong finish to our fiscal year 2021 into the first quarter of fiscal 2022. As we look ahead, we’re excited to continue providing health systems, hospitals and ambulatory providers with tools that will help them optimize their performance and improve the patient experience," said Phreesia CEO Chaim Indig.

Fiscal First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Revenue was $48.3 million in the quarter as compared to $33.4 million in the same period in the prior year, an increase of 45%.

  • Average number of provider clients was 1,902 in the quarter as compared to 1,632 in the same period in the prior year, an increase of 17%.

  • Average revenue per provider client was $20,222 in the quarter compared to $16,735 in the same period in the prior year, an increase of 21%.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was positive $0.1 million in the quarter compared to positive $1.5 million in the same period in the prior year.

  • Cash and cash equivalents as of April 30, 2021 was $450.7 million, an increase of $231.9 million compared to January 31, 2021, driven primarily by our follow-on offering of common stock, which generated net proceeds of $245.8 million.

Outlook for Fiscal 2022

We are increasing our revenue outlook for fiscal 2022 to a range of $191 million to $194 million from the previous range of $178 million to $186 million. We continue to expect our overall cash outflow to increase in fiscal 2022 compared to fiscal 2021 as we continue to ramp up hiring and infrastructure across the organization to support our anticipated growth.

Recent Events

COVID-19

The impact of the COVID-19 (a novel strain of coronavirus) pandemic has been widespread and rapidly evolving. Over the last six months, several vaccines for COVID-19 received FDA approval and are currently being administered across the country. To date, more than a third of Americans are fully vaccinated against the virus. Despite the promising vaccination rates and many states' reopening plans, we believe COVID-19 may continue to impact the normal operations of our clients, which are primarily healthcare providers. As more individuals are vaccinated, we expect these impacts to be diminished.

Non-GAAP financial measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or loss or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss before interest expense (income), net, provision for (benefit from) income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and before stock-based compensation expense, change in fair value of contingent consideration liabilities and other (income) expense, net.

We have provided below a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. We have presented Adjusted EBITDA in this press release and our Annual Report on Form 10-K because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget, and to develop short and long-term operational plans. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of the amounts eliminated in calculating Adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and board of directors.

Our use of Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are as follows:

  • Although depreciation and amortization expense are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;

  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect: (1) changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; (2) the potentially dilutive impact of non-cash stock-based compensation; (3) tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us; or (4) Interest expense (income), net; and

  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA or similarly titled measures differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these and other limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA along with other GAAP-based financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net loss, and our GAAP financial results. The following table presents a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss for each of the periods indicated:

Average revenue per provider client

$

$

  • Provider clients. We define provider clients as the average number of healthcare provider organizations that generate revenue each month during the applicable period. In cases where we act as a subcontractor providing white-label services to our partner's clients, we treat the contractual relationship as a single provider client. We believe growth in the number of provider clients is a key indicator of the performance of our business and depends, in part, on our ability to successfully develop and market our Platform to healthcare provider organizations that are not yet clients. While growth in the number of provider clients is an important indicator of expected revenue growth, it also informs our management of the areas of our business that will require further investment to support expected future provider client growth. For example, as the number of provider clients increases, we may need to add to our customer support team and invest to maintain effectiveness and performance of our Platform and software for our provider clients and their patients.

  • Average revenue per provider client. We define average revenue per provider client as the total subscription and related services and payment processing revenue generated from provider clients in a given period divided by the average number of provider clients that generate revenue each month during that same period. We are focused on continually delivering value to our provider clients and believe that our ability to increase average revenue per provider client is an indicator of the long-term value of the Phreesia platform.

  • Patient payment volume. We believe that patient payment volume is an indicator of both the underlying health of our provider clients’ businesses and the continuing shift of healthcare costs to patients. We measure patient payment volume as the total dollar volume of transactions between our provider clients and their patients utilizing our payment platform, including via credit and debit cards that we process as a payment facilitator as well as cash and check payments and credit and debit transactions for which Phreesia acts as a gateway to other payment processors.

  • Payment facilitator volume percentage. We define payment facilitator volume percentage as the volume of credit and debit card patient payment volume that we process as a payment facilitator as a percentage of total patient payment volume. Payment facilitator volume is a major driver of our payment processing revenue.
