Key Highlights

  • Strong Sales Execution, Cloud-Based Platform Adoption, Record ACV, and Continued Subscription Growth. During the second quarter Inovalon successfully converted a wide array of opportunities within its sales pipeline into signed contacts driving record new sales ACV of $75.7 million (a metric which reflects only the first year of expected revenue from new contracts signed during a period), a 38.1% increase versus the second quarter of 2019. Sales were strong in all business units. The second quarter also demonstrated the broadening adoption of Inovalon’s cloud-based SaaS solutions with marquee industry-leading wins across multiple segments of the marketplace - including a top-five consumer retailer (Walmart), a top-five medical distributor (Cardinal), and a top-five payer - each entering into long-term (five to seven years) contracts, with the payer contract expansion alone resulting in a seven-year engagement with a Total Contract Value in excess of $150 million. Reflecting the growing strength of Inovalon’s cloud platform offerings, each of these were for 100% subscription-based, SaaS cloud-based platform solutions, contributing to the Company’s continued strong expansion in its subscription-based platform business which totaled $142.1 million during the second quarter, equating to 88% of second quarter total revenue, and reflecting 13% growth over the second quarter of 2019.

  • Profitable Growth and SaaS Industry Leading Margins. The Company’s continued focus on cloud platform architecture efficiencies, marketplace connectivity, process automation, and the application of data supplementation and advanced analytics informed by Inovalon’s unparalleled primary source real-world data asset, together with the realization of continued product mix shift and strong market value recognition, resulted in increasing profitability for the Company during the second quarter. Cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue decreased to 22.7% in the second quarter versus 26.2% in the second quarter of 2019. This, in combination with the Company’s strong operational leverage, resulted in Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2020 coming in at $56.6 million, up 8% year-over-year, compared with $52.2 million for the second quarter of 2019. The resulting Adjusted EBITDA margin for the second quarter of 2020 was 34.9%, an increase of 160 basis points, compared with 33.3% for the second quarter of 2019.

  • Strong Cash Balance, Strong Cash flow and Well Capitalized. During the second quarter the Company continued to generate strong cash flow, voluntarily paid back the entirety of its $99.0 million revolver, and further decreased its net debt ratio. Cash flow from operations was strong and consistent with internal expectations resulting in $49.0 million of net cash provided by operating activities for the second quarter of 2020. The Company exited the second quarter with $95.6 million of cash and cash equivalents, which is after the Company voluntarily paid down the entirety of the outstanding balance (of approximately $99.0 million) of its revolving credit facility on June 4, 2020. The Company ended the quarter with a further-improved net debt ratio of 3.69x, down from 3.79x at the end of the first quarter of 2020, and down from 4.32x at the end of the year-ago second quarter of 2019.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Inovalon provides the measures Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and Non-GAAP net income as additional information for evaluating the Company’s operating results and free cash flow as a liquidity measure to evaluate the Company’s ability to generate cash to support its ongoing business to service and repay debt, and to invest in its business. These measures are not prepared in accordance with, or as an alternative for, GAAP accounting and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Investors frequently have requested information from management regarding depreciation, amortization and other non-cash charges, such as stock-based compensation, as well as the impact of non-comparable items and management believes, based on discussions with investors, that these non-GAAP measures enhance investors’ ability to assess Inovalon’s historical and projected future financial performance. While management believes these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors, there are limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures. For example, one limitation of Adjusted EBITDA is that it excludes depreciation and amortization, which represents the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues in our business. Inovalon compensates for these limitations by using these non-GAAP financial measures as supplements to GAAP financial measures and by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP measures that are provided above.

These non-GAAP measures include financial information that is prepared in accordance with GAAP and presented in our consolidated financial statements and are used to evaluate our business, measure our performance, develop financial forecasts and make strategic decisions and are an important factor in determining variable compensation.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Margin

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net income calculated in accordance with GAAP, adjusted for the impact of depreciation and amortization, other expense, net, interest income, interest expense, provision for income taxes, stock-based compensation, acquisition costs (including transaction costs, integration costs, costs related to contingent consideration accretion and compensatory contingent consideration), restructuring expense, tax on equity exercises, and other non-comparable items. A reconciliation of net income, which is the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, to Adjusted EBITDA is provided above.

Adjusted EBITDA margin is the Company’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, divided by revenue calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin as supplemental measures of performance to gain insight into operating effectiveness. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin as key metrics to assess its ability to increase revenues while controlling expense growth and the scalability of the Company’s business model. The Company believes that the exclusion of the expenses eliminated in calculating Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin provides management and investors a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s core business and operating results by excluding items that are not comparable across reporting periods or that do not otherwise relate to the Company’s ongoing operating results. Accordingly, the Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company’s operating results. However, use of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin as analytical tools has limitations, and investors and others should not consider them in isolation or as substitutes for analysis of our financial results as reported under GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in Inovalon’s industry, might calculate Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin or similarly titled measures differently, which may reduce their usefulness as comparative measures.

Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP net income per share

The Company defines Non-GAAP net income as net income calculated in accordance with GAAP, adjusted to exclude tax-affected stock-based compensation expense, acquisition costs (including transaction costs, integration costs, costs related to contingent consideration accretion and compensatory contingent consideration), restructuring expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets, amortization of debt issuance costs and debt discount, tax on equity exercises, and other non-comparable items.

The Company defines Non-GAAP basic net income per share as Non-GAAP net income divided by basic weighted average shares outstanding. The Company defines Non-GAAP diluted net income per share as Non-GAAP net income divided by diluted weighted average shares outstanding.

The Company uses Non-GAAP net income as a supplemental measure of performance to gain insight into financial effectiveness. The Company uses Non-GAAP net income as a key metric to assess its ability to increase revenues while controlling expense growth and the scalability of its business model. The Company believes that the exclusion of the expenses eliminated in calculating Non-GAAP net income provides management and investors a useful measure for period to period comparisons of the Company’s core business and financial results by excluding items that are not comparable across reporting periods or that do not otherwise relate to its ongoing financial results. Accordingly, the Company believes that Non-GAAP net income provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company’s performance. However, use of Non-GAAP net income as an analytical tool has limitations, and investors and others should not consider this measure in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s financial results as reported under GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in Inovalon’s industry, might calculate Non-GAAP net income or similarly titled measures differently, which may reduce their usefulness as comparative measures.

Free cash flow

The Company defines free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities calculated in accordance with GAAP less purchases of property and equipment and less investments in capitalized software. The Company uses free cash flow as a liquidity measure to evaluate its ability to generate cash to support its ongoing business operations, to service and repay debt, and to invest in its businesses. However, use of free cash flow has limitations, and investors and others should not consider this measure in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of the Company’s liquidity as reported under GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in Inovalon’s industry, might calculate free cash flow or similarly titled measures differently, which may reduce their usefulness as comparative measures.
