VitalHub Reports Continued Positive Earnings in Q2 2019

TORONTO, Aug. 22, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VitalHub Corp. (the “Company” or “VitalHub”) (VHI.V) announced today it has filed its Interim Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis report for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 with the Canadian securities authorities. These documents may be viewed under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.

When asked to comment on the results of Q2 2019, VitalHub CEO Dan Matlow said, “We continue to make progress quarter-over-quarter in all areas of our business and continue to be optimistic on a go-forward basis, as we offer the following insight to help guide our investors at this time."

  • “Due to the high amount of non-cash items on the Company’s income statement relating to the amortization of intangibles from acquisitions, we focus primarily on Adjusted EBITDA to track our performance. We have made great progress here, with Adjusted EBITDA representing 23% of revenues for the period ended June 30, 2019. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-IFRS measure.
  • Our annual contract value (“ACV”) has grown to $5,321,119, which has not yet been materially affected by the Nova Scotia contract revenue, which has the potential to grow to $2.3M in ACV. Revenue associated with this contract has primarily been comprised of professional services to-date, and has only accounted for 2% or $125,450 of the total ACV currently reported. Our expectation is for the Nova Scotia ACV to progressively increase starting in Q4 of this year. (For further details on the Nova Scotia contract, refer to the original press release dated January 7, 2019.) ACV is a non-IFRS measure.
  • Recurring revenue continues to grow and now represents 46.5% of total revenue for the quarter. Recurring revenue is a non-IFRS measure.
  • While M&A is an important part of our growth strategy, the Company continues to grow organically with 44% of revenue representing organic growth for the quarter.
  • The Oak Group acquisition completed in March 2019 and in particular its MCAP product represents an opportunity for growth internationally. We continue to see pipeline growth on an international basis.
  • The company has been gradually increasing our cash reserves, and at the end of Q2 had $4,860,083 of cash.”
