BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Nov. 16 Authentidate Holding Corp. (Nasdaq: ADAT), a worldwide provider of secure Health Information Exchange and workflow management services, today announced financial results for the fiscal 2010 first quarter ended September 30, 2009.
Selected highlights for the quarter include:
Ben Benjamin, President of Authentidate, stated, "Our principal focus for fiscal 2010 is on significantly increasing our revenues. We believe the new telehealth patient monitoring and hospital discharge products and services we introduced towards the end of fiscal 2009 offer significant opportunities for growth. We also expect our business to benefit from a number of the major trends affecting the U.S. healthcare industry, including the increasing emphasis being placed on preventative care, in-home care and technology to help reduce costs without sacrificing quality. Customer demand for our products and services has been increasing as healthcare organizations look for ways to improve their operations and we expect revenues from our new products and services to contribute to our growth during the remainder of fiscal 2010 and beyond."
Total revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2009 increased approximately 20% to $2,022,000 compared to $1,690,000 for the same period last year. These results reflect an increase in revenues from our German operation from new customer projects which was offset in part by a decrease in U.S. revenues due to the expiration of our contract with Liberty Medical at the end of March 2009 following its acquisition by Medco. Compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009, total revenues increased approximately 29% reflecting the same trends as the first quarter results.
Net loss for the first quarter of fiscal 2010 decreased to $2,113,000, or $0.06 per share, compared to $2,446,000, or $0.07 per share, for the same period last year. The decrease in net loss for the quarter reflects revenue growth, cost management activities and lower share based compensation expense.
As of September 30, 2009, the company's cash and cash equivalents, and marketable securities totaled $3,757,000, deferred revenue totaled $1,026,000 and available borrowings totaled $3,000,000.
