15 Days ago

Raises 2019 Adjusted Net Income per Share Guidance to $4.00 - $4.25
Net Income of $3.2 million, up 28% YOY
Adjusted EBITDA of $13.8 million, up 10% YOY
GAAP Diluted Net Income per Share of $0.20, up 43% YOY
Adjusted Net Income per Share of $0.71, up 34% YOY

TAMPA, Fla., Aug. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Health Insurance Innovations, Inc. (NASDAQ:HIIQ), a leading cloud-based technology platform and distributor of affordable health insurance, life insurance and supplemental plans, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019. The Company will host a live conference call on Monday, August 5, 2019, at 5:00 P.M. ET.

"The second quarter marks the definitive expansion of our product offering to Medicare products. We have made a number of important investments in the space over the last two months, totaling nearly $100 million, with the intention of leveraging our expertise to truly transform our business going forward. These investments include our previously announced acquisition of TogetherHealth during the second quarter of 2019 and the subsequent consummation of two additional transactions that include an online consumer engagement platform and a distributor of insurance products.  We now have in place a fully organic, end-to-end suite of technology enabled assets to drive digital and mass media consumer engagement and customer support from which to build distribution for the Medicare space,” said Gavin Southwell, President and Chief Executive Officer of Health Insurance Innovations, Inc. 

In the Company’s process of cooperating with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regarding the policies sold by a terminated third-party distributor, the Company’s results were impacted by a change in the estimated value associated with these policies that impacted revenue in the amount of approximately $11.9 million and a reduction in associated commission expense of $9.5 million. This adjustment negatively impacted adjusted EBITDA by approximately $2.4 million net of the associated reduction of commission expense. This impact relates to policies sold prior to November 2, 2018 for the approximately one-quarter of consumers who elected to opt out of their coverage.

Second Quarter 2019 Consolidated Financial Highlights
All comparisons are to the three months ended June 30, 2018

  • Revenue was $58.4 million, compared to revenue of $71.8 million, a decrease of 18.7% before considering the change in the estimated value of $11.9 million.
  • Net income of $3.2 million, compared to net income of $2.5 million, an increase of 28.0%.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) was $13.8 million, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $12.5 million, an increase of 10.4%.
  • GAAP diluted net income per share was $0.20, compared to GAAP diluted net income per share of $0.14, an increase of 42.9%.
  • Adjusted net income per share was $0.71 compared to adjusted net income per share of $0.53, an increase of 34.0%.
  • Expected duration units of submitted IFPs (excluding fulfillment) of 516,300 compared to 520,700, a decrease of 0.8%. 

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income per share are non-GAAP financial measures. See the reconciliations of these measures to their respective most directly comparable GAAP measure below in this press release.

2019 Full Year Guidance

The Company raised its full year 2019 adjusted net income per share guidance to a range of $4.00 to $4.25, up from $3.80 to $4.05 and reaffirms 2019 annual revenue guidance in the range of $450 million to $460 million and adjusted EBITDA guidance in the range of $82 million to $87 million. The increase in projected 2019 net income per share is due to a lower diluted average share count at the end of the second quarter resulting from additional repurchases of the Company’s common stock during the second quarter.

2019 Second Quarter Financial Discussion

Second quarter revenues of $58.4 million decreased 18.7%, compared to revenue of $71.8 million in 2018. Approximately 16.6% of this decrease was attributable to a change in the estimated value associated with a one-time opt-out program for policies sold by a terminated third-party distributor during a quarter where we made significant investments and put in place building blocks for future growth.

Third-party commission expense was $26.9 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $45.7 million in the same period in 2018, a decrease of 41.1%. The decrease was driven primarily by the impact of members who opted out of policies sold by a terminated third-party distributor and a favorable change in estimate of amounts owed under certain prepaid commission agreements.

Total selling, general & administrative expense (“SG&A”) was $21.4 million in the second quarter, compared to $19.7 million in the same period in 2018. Adjusted SG&A, defined as total SG&A adjusted for stock-based compensation and related costs, transaction costs, indemnity and other related legal costs, severance and restructuring and other charges, for the second quarter of 2019 was $16.0 million, compared to $12.3 million in the same period in 2018. The increase is primarily attributable to increased advertising and marketing investment in our ecommerce channel, legal and professional fees, and investments in support of our product diversification initiatives. Adjusted SG&A is a non-GAAP financial measure, and a reconciliation of total SG&A to adjusted SG&A is included below in this press release.

Net income was $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to net income of $2.5 million in the same period in 2018. EBITDA was $8.5 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $5.0 million in the same period in 2018. EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure and a reconciliation of EBITDA to net income is included below in this press release.

Adjusted EBITDA was $13.8 million in the second quarter of 2019, compared to $12.5 million in the same period in 2018. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated by taking EBITDA and adjusting for items that are not part of regular operating activities including stock-based compensation and related costs, transaction costs, tax receivable adjustments, indemnity and other related legal costs, and severance, restructuring, and other charges. A reconciliation of net income to EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 is included within this press release.

GAAP diluted net income per share for the second quarter of 2019 was $0.20, compared to GAAP diluted net income per share of $0.14 in the same period in 2018.

Adjusted net income per share for the second quarter of 2019 was $0.71, compared to adjusted net income per share of $0.53 in the same period in 2018. A reconciliation of net income to adjusted net income per share is included within this press release.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $14.7 million as of June 30, 2019, an increase of $5.4 million from December 31, 2018.

On June 5, 2019, and as previously reported, the Company purchased all of the outstanding equity of the businesses known as TogetherHealth, a premier direct-to-consumer platform connecting individuals with U.S. insurance carriers through consumer acquisition and engagement primarily serving the over 65 insurance market. The transaction was consummated using a mix of cash, HIIQ stock and contingent consideration and is expected to be immediately accretive to the Company’s earnings. The purchase consideration, subject to certain adjustments, includes approximately $50 million of cash and 630,000 shares of HIIQ Class A common stock, and a five-year earnout provision based on the future performance of the acquired businesses.

The Company entered into a $215 million credit agreement on June 5, 2019 with a syndicate of banks, with Bank of America, N.A. as Administrative Agent and BofA Securities, Inc. and SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc. as Joint Lead Arrangers and Joint Bookrunners. The credit agreement will mature in June 2022 and includes a $150 million funded term loan and $65 million in available revolving facility, none of which was drawn as of June 30, 2019.

The Company repurchased 630,000 shares of its common stock during the second quarter of 2019, for $18.6 million, as part of its previously announced share repurchase program. The Company has $75.4 million remaining under its $200 million share repurchase authorization.

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements are statements other than historical fact, and may include statements relating to goals, plans and projections regarding new markets, products, services, growth strategies, anticipated trends in our business and anticipated changes and developments in the United States health insurance system and laws. Forward-looking statements are based on HIIQ’s current assumptions, expectations and beliefs are generally identifiable by use of words “may,” “might,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential” or “continue,” or similar expressions and involve significant risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results, developments and business decisions to differ materially from those contemplated by these statements. These risks and uncertainties include, among other things, our ability to maintain relationships and develop new relationships with health insurance carriers and distributors, our ability to retain our members, the demand for products offered through our platform, our ability to integrate acquired businesses and assets and recognize the intended benefits from them, regulatory oversight and examinations of us and our carriers and distributors, legal and regulatory compliance by our carriers and distributors, the amount of commissions paid to us or changes in health insurance plan pricing practices, competition, changes and developments in the United States health insurance system and laws, and HIIQ’s ability to adapt to them, the ability to maintain and enhance our name recognition, difficulties arising from acquisitions or other strategic transactions, and our ability to build the necessary infrastructure and processes to maintain effective controls over financial reporting. These and other risk factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in our forward-looking statements will be discussed in HIIQ's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as well as other documents that may be filed by HIIQ from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which are available at www.sec.gov. Any forward-looking statement made by us in this press release is based only on information currently available to us and speaks only as of the date on which it is made. You should not rely on any forward-looking statement as representing our views in the future. We undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

To supplement HIIQ’s financial information presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP, HIIQ presents certain financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, including premium equivalents, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EPS, and adjusted SG&A. These non-GAAP financial measures, which are defined below, should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies.

HIIQ is presenting these non-GAAP financial measures to assist investors in seeing HIIQ’s operating results through the eyes of management and because HIIQ’s believes that these measures provide a useful tool for investors to use in assessing HIIQ’s operating performance against prior period operating results and against business objectives. HIIQ uses the non-GAAP financial measures in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

The accompanying tables provide more detail on the GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to the non-GAAP financial measures described above and the related reconciliations between these financial measures. HIIQ has not reconciled adjusted EBITDA guidance or adjusted EPS guidance to GAAP net income or GAAP net income per diluted share, respectively, because HIIQ does not provide guidance for the reconciling items between these measures and GAAP net income or GAAP net income per diluted share, respectively. As certain of the items that impact GAAP net income and/or GAAP net income per diluted share cannot be reasonably predicted at this time, HIIQ is unable to provide such guidance. Accordingly, a reconciliation to GAAP net income or GAAP net income per diluted share is not available without unreasonable effort.

(1) EBITDA is defined as net income before interest, income taxes and depreciation and amortization. We have included EBITDA in this report 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, the exclusion of certain expenses in calculating EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our business. However, EBITDA does not represent, and should not be considered as, an alternative to net income or cash flows from operations, each as determined in accordance with GAAP. Other companies may calculate EBITDA differently than we do. EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

(2) To calculate adjusted EBITDA, we calculate EBITDA, which is then further adjusted for items such as stock-based compensation and related costs, and items that are not generally a part of regular operating activities, including tax receivable adjustments, indemnity and other related legal costs, and severance, restructuring, and acquisition costs. Adjusted EBITDA does not represent, and should not be considered as, an alternative to net income or cash flows from operations, each as determined in accordance with GAAP. We have presented adjusted EBITDA because we consider it an important supplemental measure of our performance and believe that it is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies. Other companies may calculate adjusted EBITDA differently than we do. Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

(3) To calculate adjusted net income, we calculate net income then add back amortization (but not depreciation), interest, tax expense, items such as stock-based compensation and related costs, and other items that are not generally a part of regular operating activities, including, tax receivable adjustments, indemnity and other related legal costs, severance, restructuring, and acquisition costs. From adjusted pre-tax net income, we apply a pro forma tax expense calculated at an assumed rate of 24%, which consists of the maximum federal corporate rate of 21%, with an assumed 3% state tax rate. We believe that when measuring Company and executive performance against the adjusted net income measure, applying a pro forma tax rate better reflects the performance of the Company without regard to the Company’s organizational tax structure. We have included adjusted net income in this report because it is a key performance measure used by our management to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends and because we believe it is frequently used by analysts, investors, and other interested parties in their evaluation of the Company. Other companies may calculate this measure differently than we do. Adjusted net income has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or substitution for earnings per share as reported under GAAP.

(4) Adjusted net income per share is computed by dividing adjusted net income by the total number of weighted-average diluted Class A and weighted-average Class B shares of our common stock for each period. We have included adjusted net income per share in this report because it is a key measure used by our management to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends and because we believe it is frequently used by analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of companies. Other companies may calculate this measure differently than we do. Adjusted net income per share has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for earnings per share as reported under GAAP.

  Three Months Ended June 30,   Six Months Ended June 30,
  2019   2018   2019   2018
Premium equivalents $ 97,262     $ 112,370     $ 244,936     $ 227,952

Premium equivalents. We define this metric as our total expected lifetime collections for our sales and marketing performance obligation, including the combination of premiums, fees for discount benefit plans, enrollment fees, and third-party commissions. This metric also includes current period revenue from our member management performance obligation. We have included premium equivalents in this report because, while diminishing in importance since the adoption of ASC 606, it has historically been a key measure used by our management to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends.

(1) Excludes policies from a business previously managed by a third party that the Company took over in June 2018. These policies were excluded as the revenue was recognized as part of the member management performance obligation only.
(2) Represents de-emphasized products where the Company outsourced all sales and marketing obligations and some member management services. The Company terminated these fulfillment only arrangements in December, 2018.

Expected Duration Units. An expected duration unit ("EDU") represents the cumulative number of months the Company expects to collect from each policy submitted during the period. This metric is important because the vast majority of our revenues (approximately 95%) are recognized up front at the time the policy is sold. This portion of revenue represents the total amount of premiums we expect to collect, net of risk premiums paid to carriers and amounts earned by third party obligors, over the life of each policy sold. Our expected duration units are an important indicator of our expected revenues. We have included expected duration units in this report because it is a key measure used by our management to understand and evaluate our core revenue performance and trends, to prepare our annual budget, and to develop short- and long-term operational plans. In particular, the inclusion of expected duration units can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our business. Expected duration units has limitations as an analytical tool, and it should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.

Submitted Applications. Our submitted applications are an important input of our expected revenues. A member may be enrolled in more than one policy or discount benefit plan simultaneously. We have included submitted applications in this report because in conjunction with expected duration units, it is a key measure used by our management to understand and evaluate our core revenue performance and trends, to prepare our annual budget and to develop short- and long-term operational plans. In particular, the inclusion of submitted applications can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our business.

(1) Excludes policies from a business previously managed by a third party that the Company took over in June 2018. These policies were excluded as the revenue was recognized as part of the member management performance obligation only.

Constrained Lifetime Value per Submitted Application ("LVSA"). We have included LVSA in this report because it is a key measure used by our management to understand and evaluate our core revenue performance and trends, to prepare our annual budget and to develop short- and long-term operational plans. LVSA calculates the constrained lifetime value of both the sales and marketing performance obligation and the member management performance obligation expected to be recognized over the life of the product divided by the number of submitted applications received during the period. Total LVSA excludes the fulfillment-only applications that represent low margin products where the Company outsourced all sales and marketing obligations and some of its member management services. We believe that excluding these fulfillment-only applications from LVSA provides greater insight into our core operations. The inclusion of LVSA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our business. LVSA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP.
