DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Nov. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- UpHealth, Inc. (“we,” “UpHealth,” or the “Company”) (NYSE: UPH), today issued a corporate update in the form of a letter to shareholders on behalf of CEO, Martin Beck, inclusive of financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023.

Dear Fellow Shareholders,

I wanted to take the opportunity in conjunction with the release of our results for the third quarter of 2023 to provide you all with details of our strong financial performance in the third quarter and to summarize the various actions that we have taken over the course of the past several weeks.

First, I would like to comment on this quarter’s financial results, which demonstrate the continued strength of our Telehealth and Behavioral Health businesses through September 30, 2023. For the third quarter of 2023, we reported total revenues of $32.7 million, compared to $38.7 million in the third quarter of 2022. Revenues from our Virtual Care Infrastructure (“VCI”) segment were $18.5 million (57% of total revenues), an increase of 23% over revenues of $15.0 million in the third quarter of 2022, driven by strong video minute growth and the addition of numerous new hospital clients. Revenue from our Services segment were $10.9 million (33% of total revenues) in the third quarter of 2023, a decrease of 45% compared to $19.9 million in the third quarter of 2022, primarily as a result of the divestiture of our Innovations Group, Inc. (“IGI”) compounding pharmacy business on May 11, 2023 and the ramp down of our behavioral health operations in Missouri, partially offset by 31% growth in revenues in our behavioral health operations in Florida as a result of higher in-network and other patient volumes. Revenues from our Integrated Care Management (“ICM”) segment were $3.3 million (10% of total revenues) for the third quarter of 2023, a decrease of 13% compared to $3.8 million in the third quarter of 2022, primarily as a result of the loss of a customer.

Our gross margin expanded to 54% in the third quarter of 2023, up from 44% in the third quarter of 2022. Our VCI segment reported a gross margin of 58% in the third quarter of 2023, an increase from 48% for the third quarter of 2022, as a result of improved operating leverage in the business. Our Services segment reported a gross margin of 51%, an increase from 35% in the third quarter of 2022, primarily due to this quarter’s results being comprised almost entirely of the Florida Behavioral Health business and including only a minimal amount of activity from our lower margin Behavioral Health business in Missouri and none of the operations of our IGI compounding pharmacy business, which was divested in the second quarter of this year.

Our adjusted EBITDA was $5.4 million in the third quarter of 2023, representing an improvement of $6.7 million over adjusted EBITDA of $(1.2) million in the third quarter of 2022, primarily driven by a continued focus on cost control efforts, especially as it relates to corporate overhead.

Since 2021, UpHealth Holdings, Inc. (“UpHealth Holdings”), a subsidiary of UpHealth, has been a party to a legal action (the “Needham Action”) entitled Needham & Company LLC (“Needham”) v. UpHealth Holdings, Inc. and UpHealth Services, Inc. (“UpHealth Services”), which arose out of UpHealth Services’ engagement of Needham to provide placement and other financial advisory services.   In September 2023, the trial court in New York issued a Decision and Order granting summary judgment in favor of Needham and denying UpHealth Holdings’ and UpHealth Services’ motion for summary judgment. The Decision and Order concluded that Needham is entitled to fees in the amount of $31.3 million, plus prejudgment interest of $6.5 million, for a total judgment of $37.8 million, plus post-judgment interest of 9% per year. We are extremely disappointed by this Decision and Order and plan to aggressively appeal. However, as a result of the summary judgment, in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, we recorded additional expense of $29.8 million, which was included in acquisition, integration, and transformation costs in our unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.

In response to the unexpected summary judgement in favor of Needham, on September 19, 2023, UpHealth Holdings filed for voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in an effort to protect the considerable cash balances on the balance sheet of UpHealth Holdings while we pursue an appeal. Furthermore, on October 20, 2023, Thrasys, Inc. (“Thrasys”) and Behavioral Health Services (“BHS”), both wholly owned subsidiaries of UpHealth Holdings, and their subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. I’d like to clarify that UpHealth and its direct subsidiary Cloudbreak Health, LLC (“Cloudbreak”) and its indirect subsidiary TTC Healthcare, Inc. (“TTC”), a subsidiary of UpHealth Holdings, have NOT filed for Chapter 11 protection and remain operating in the normal course. All of these actions are further explained in detail within the context of this letter as I review the sequencing of events and provide an update on both the motions recently approved by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

As a result of the bankruptcy proceedings described above and the automatic designation of UpHealth Holdings and its subsidiaries as a “debtor-in-possession,” we determined that a reconsideration event occurred on September 19, 2023, which required us to reassess whether UpHealth Holdings was a Variable Interest Entity (“VIE”) and whether we continued to have a controlling financial interest in UpHealth Holdings. Based on this assessment, we concluded that UpHealth Holdings was a VIE, and furthermore, that we no longer had the ability to direct any activities of UpHealth Holdings and no longer have a controlling financial interest. As a result, effective September 30, 2023, we deconsolidated UpHealth Holdings and recorded a $59.1 million gain on deconsolidation of equity investment in our unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations, measured as the difference between the fair value of UpHealth Holdings of $75.6 million and the carrying amount of UpHealth Holdings’ assets and liabilities as of September 30, 2023. We concluded that we would use the September 30, 2023, date for deconsolidation, as the last 12 days in the month were determined to not be material. As a result of this deconsolidation, the financial position of UpHealth Holdings as of December 31, 2022, and financial results of UpHealth Holdings in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023, are included in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the financial position of UpHealth Holdings as of September 30, 2023, is not included in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

As it relates to Thrasys, we have decided to wind down and discontinue the operations of our ICM segment after determining that the market demand and margins associated with its heavily customized population health management software do not justify a continuation of services. We have executed, subject to U.S. Bankruptcy Court approval, perpetual, non-exclusive licenses and service arrangements through the end of 2023 with all three ICM customers, with the expectation these customers will hire the majority of our ICM employees and assume key executory contracts and the obligations of Thrasys under these contracts, with the result that Thrasys will no longer bear those obligations or utilize those contracts. We expect that the ICM segment will operate on a breakeven cash flow basis through the end of the fourth quarter when its operations will cease. Following the cessation of operation, the ICM segment will continue to own all of its intellectual property, subject to the non‑exclusive licenses being granted to the three ICM customers.

Subsequent to quarter end, on November 16, 2023, we announced we had entered into a definitive agreement to sell Cloudbreak and its Martti translation offering to a newly formed entity controlled by GTCR LLC for $180 million in cash and a Transaction Support Agreement with the majority of our secured and unsecured note holders. We will utilize the proceeds from the sale for payment in full or in part of our 2026 Unsecured and 2025 Secured Notes, as well as other expenses related to the transaction. The sale of Cloudbreak is expected to close during the first half of 2024, following the receipt of customary regulatory and stockholder approvals and closing conditions.

Upon the divestiture of Cloudbreak, UpHealth will focus exclusively on expanding our high quality, profitable Behavioral Health business located today in Florida consisting of TTC.   I am very familiar with this business as I was one of its owners prior to the June 2021 transaction with UpHealth and I am delighted to renew my leadership role there. I am excited about the opportunities that exist for our Behavioral Health business to continue to expand its mental health service offerings and, with the more appropriate capital structure that will result from the sale of Cloudbreak, to pursue further geographic expansion.

On September 30, 2023, we reported $3.3 million of cash and cash equivalents. Due to the deconsolidation of UpHealth Holdings, this excludes approximately $35.6 million of cash at UpHealth Holdings as of September 30, 2023. In addition, this does not include approximately $7.0 million in cash in India that is held in a bank account which the Emergency Arbitrator has ordered cannot be accessed by Glocal Healthcare or UpHealth. Based on information currently available, we are forecasting cash and cash equivalent balances as of March 31, 2024 of $9.5 million at UpHealth and TTC, and $22.9 million at UpHealth Holdings, Thrasys, and BHS.

Before detailing the most recent events, I want to take a moment and recognize all constituents of UpHealth and those who continue on this journey with us.   I, a fellow shareholder, understand this has certainly not been an easy journey.   I can assure you that the UpHealth leadership team is more dedicated and focused than ever on its newly defined and simplified strategy to profitably scale TTC. Special thank you to Andy Panos, the head of our Cloudbreak business, for driving Cloudbreak’s strategic growth, while improving considerably the bottom line of the business, and to Lisa Fluxman, the head of our Behavioral Health business, for impeccable execution of the strategic expansion from treating addiction to serving patients in need of mental health treatment, while delivering a highly profitable business quarter after quarter.

I look forward to updating you as we move forward and execute on this strategy.

Chronological Events

A chronological overview of the most recent events is as follows:

  • The trial court in New York issued a Decision and Order on September 14, 2023, granting summary judgment in favor of Needham and against UpHealth Holdings and UpHealth Services in a lawsuit unrelated to our operations. The Decision and Order provides that Needham is entitled to fees in the amount of $31.3 million plus interest.
  • We reviewed the order and began exploring all options, including a potential settlement with Needham. We plan to vigorously appeal this decision.
  • On September 19, 2023, UpHealth Holdings, a subsidiary of UpHealth, filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
    • The bankruptcy filing will enable UpHealth Holdings to work to restructure its financials and continue to seek a fair resolution to the September 14, 2023 decision by the trial court in New York granting summary judgment in favor of Needham.
    • UpHealth, its direct subsidiary, Cloudbreak, and its indirect subsidiary, TTC, have NOT filed for Chapter 11 Protection and continue to operate in the normal course of business.
    • Pursuant to the terms of the Transaction Support Agreement, UpHealth and the majority of our secured and unsecured note holders have agreed that UpHealth will enter into Supplemental Indentures that will provide for waivers with respect to UpHealth and Cloudbreak, of the events of default under our indentures that resulted from UpHealth’s subsidiaries’ Chapter 11 filings.
  • On October 11, 2023, organizational changes were announced, summarized as follows:
    • Martin Beck, previously CFO, was appointed CEO,
    • Jay Jennings, previously the CAO, assumed the role of CFO, and
    • 20 corporate roles were eliminated.
  • On October 20, 2023, Thrasys and BHS, both subsidiaries of UpHealth Holdings, filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. As previously disclosed, we discontinued operations of BHS earlier this year.
  • On November 16, 2023, we announced we had entered into a definitive agreement to sell our wholly owned subsidiary, Cloudbreak, best known for its Martti translation offering, to GTCR for $180 million in cash.
  • We will utilize the proceeds from the sale of Cloudbreak to repay in full or in part our 2026 Unsecured and 2025 Secured Notes, as well as other expenses related to the transaction. The sale of Cloudbreak is expected to close during the first half of 2024, following the receipt of customary regulatory and stockholder approvals and closing conditions, and will allow us to pursue a more simplified strategy that focuses on TTC, a growing, cash flow positive, Behavioral Health business.

Update on Voluntary Financial Restructuring, First and Second Day Motions

Following the commencement of their Chapter 11 cases, UpHealth Holdings, Thrasys and BHS (each of the entities in the proceeding, the “Debtors”) have filed a number of ordinary “first-” and “second-day” motions to continue ordinary course operations and allow for a smooth transition into Chapter 11. On October 24, November 1, and November 17, 2023, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware approved all of the “first-“ and “second-day” motions, including but not limited to confirming the worldwide automatic injunction of all litigation and creditor action against the Debtors, allowing the use of cash and the continued use of the Debtors’ cash management system, allowing payment to employees and independent contractors, and setting a deadline for creditors to file proofs of claim. Thrasys has also filed motions to effectuate a transition of the ICM business to its customers. A motion to pay retention bonuses to Thrasys employees involved in the transition of the ICM business through year end was approved by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware on November 17, 2023.

    • Services revenues were $10.9 million (33% of total revenues), compared to revenues for the third quarter of 2022 of $19.9 million.

    • ICM gross margin was 60%, a decrease compared to 80% for the year-to-date third quarter of 2022.

UPHEALTH, INC.
NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release includes financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP). To supplement UpHealth’s condensed consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, UpHealth presents investors with non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA.

  • Adjusted EBITDA consists of net income (loss) attributable to UpHealth, Inc., excluding depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation; impairment of goodwill, intangible assets, and other long-lived assets; acquisition, integration, and transformation costs; other income (expense); income tax benefit (expense); net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests; and other non-recurring charges to GAAP net income (loss) attributable to UpHealth, Inc. Other non-recurring charges to GAAP net income (loss) attributable to UpHealth, Inc. may include transaction expenses in connection with capital raising transactions (whether debt, equity or equity-linked) and acquisitions, whether or not consummated, purchase price adjustments, the cumulative effect of a change in accounting principles, or other expenses determined to be non-recurring.

UpHealth believes that the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provides important supplemental information to management and investors regarding financial and business trends relating to UpHealth’s financial condition and results of operations. Management believes that the items described above provide an additional measure of UpHealth’s operating results and facilitates comparisons of UpHealth’s core operating performance against prior periods and business model objectives. This information is provided to investors in order to facilitate additional analyses of past, present, and future operating performance and as a supplemental means to evaluate UpHealth’s ongoing operations. UpHealth believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in their assessment of UpHealth’s operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA is not calculated in accordance with GAAP, and should be considered supplemental to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. You should not consider this measure in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of UpHealth’s results as reported under GAAP. UpHealth compensates for these limitations by prominently disclosing GAAP financial measures and providing investors with reconciliations from UpHealth’s GAAP operating results to the non-GAAP financial measures for the relevant periods.

The accompanying tables provide more details 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.

(1)Segment Information
 The Company’s business is organized into three operating business segments:
 Virtual Care Infrastructure;
 Services; and
 Integrated Care Management.
 The reportable segments are consistent with how management views the Company’s services and products and the financial information reviewed by the chief operating decision makers. The Company manages its businesses as components of an enterprise for which separate information is available and is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision makers in deciding how to allocate resources and assess performance.
(2)In the Virtual Care Infrastructure segment, which consists of the U.S. Telehealth business, the Company provides its customers with a unified telehealth solution and digital health tools, marketed under the name MarttiTM, aimed at increasing access to healthcare and resolving health disparities across the care continuum. As discussed in Note 1, Organization and Business, to the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements, the Company deconsolidated Glocal, which comprised the International Telehealth business, during the three months ended September 30, 2022; therefore, the financial results of Glocal for the nine and months ended September 30, 2022 are included in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, and the financial results of Glocal as of September 30, 2023 and for the three and nine months then ended are not included in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
(3)In the Services segment, which consists of the Behavioral business, the Company provides inpatient and outpatient substance abuse and mental health treatment services for individuals with drug and alcohol addiction and other behavioral health issues. The Company offers a complete continuum of care from detoxification services, residential care, partial hospitalization programs, and intensive outpatient and outpatient programs. During the three months ended June 30, 2023, we substantially completed the wind-down of a company within our Behavioral business. The Services segment also consisted of the Pharmacy business, which sold custom compounded medications, until the sale of the business on May 11, 2023.
(4)In the Integrated Care Management segment, the Company provides its customers with an advanced, comprehensive, and extensible technology platform, marketed under the umbrella “SyntraNetTM” to manage health, quality of care, and costs, especially for individuals with complex medical, behavioral health, and social needs.
