Total revenues for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2018, were $72.3 million, compared with total revenues of $78.1 million for the prior-year fourth quarter. GAAP net income for the quarter ended December 31, 2018, was $7.6 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $21.5 million, or $1.57 per diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2017. The fourth quarter of 2017 included a $28.0 million non-cash goodwill impairment charge related to the Company’s post-acute care business. Cash provided by operations for the fourth quarter of 2018 was $9.1 million, compared with $5.3 million for the prior-year period.

“CPSI closed out 2018 with a solid performance in the fourth quarter,” said Boyd Douglas, president and chief executive officer of CPSI. “We are especially pleased with the greater than 40% increase in fourth quarter bookings for our services business, TruBridge. The healthy installation schedule for our acute care electronic health record (EHR) systems, decent add-on sales and stable net new bookings this quarter all contributed to a strong finish for 2018.”

Commenting on the Company’s financial performance for the quarter, Matt Chambless, chief financial officer of CPSI, stated, “The fourth quarter was one of milestones for CPSI, with nearly all profitability metrics at or near their highest points since bringing Healthland and AHT into our family of companies. Strength in cash flows allowed for aggressive de-leveraging, resulting in a final leverage ratio that was effectively at our target. Looking forward, we are committed to continuing to deliver value to our EHR clients, harvesting additional growth opportunities with TruBridge, and using the flexibility of our improved leverage profile to pursue more opportunistic uses of capital, all while continuing to ensure that we are making the best use of our resources.”

A 30-day online replay will be available approximately one hour following the conclusion of the live webcast.
