MISSION VIEJO, CA--(Marketwired - May 15, 2015) - Auxilio, Inc. (OTCQB: AUXO) ("Auxilio" or "the Company"), a leading provider of Managed Print Services (MPS) and IT Security for the healthcare industry, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015.

2015 First Quarter and Subsequent Highlights:

  • Revenues increased 35% to $13.8 million, a Company record, driven by $1.0 million in new recurring service revenue, $1.2 million in security solutions revenue and $1.8 million in equipment revenues.
  • Generated $0.4 million of cash flows from operations during the first quarter of 2015 and ended March 31, 2015 with $5.1 million in cash and cash equivalents.
  • Signed a five-year contract for MPS with one of the largest health systems in the United States, covering 21 states including a significant presence in the Midwest, that is expected to generate more than $50 million in revenue over the next five years.
  • Launched a Five Step Security Program Development Framework and a Business Associate Framework that provides a roadmap for healthcare executives to follow best practices in protecting patient health information (PHI).
  • Acquired Redspin, Inc. on April 7, 2015 to complement its end-to-end enterprise wide Healthcare IT Security Offering. Carpinteria, CA based Redspin provides HIPAA security risk assessments, ongoing penetration testing and compliance to safeguard protected health information (PHI) and improve efficiency across the health system.

"We are pleased to see the initial stages of a new growth trend from both MPS and our Security Solutions Group and expect continued momentum through 2015. Our MPS business has created trusted partnerships with some of the largest healthcare systems in the country. While we continue to see excellent growth opportunities for expanding the MPS business, we are also witnessing C-level executives make security and HIPAA compliance a priority as highly publicized breaches continue to occur. Every one of our 220 current MPS hospital customers' needs a broad range of security services, many of which are not being adequately addressed," elaborated Joseph J. Flynn, President and CEO.

"With that in mind, we are pleased to complete the acquisition of Redspin, Inc.," said Mr. Flynn. "Redspin is a respected industry player servicing over 135 hospitals. When integrated with our Security Solutions Group, our enhanced business platform will offer healthcare customers a robust information security diagnostic, assessment and compliance services solution. This transaction is another step toward our vision of becoming the dominant player in Healthcare Information Security," Mr. Flynn went on to say.

"Our goal is to invest in areas of our business where we can garnish the best returns, including business with shorter sales cycles and recurring, higher margin revenues. We see tremendous cross-selling opportunities across our organization which now collectively encompasses over 220 hospitals," concluded Mr. Flynn.

Financial Results for the three months ended March 31, 2015

For the three months ended March 31, 2015, the Company reported revenues of $13.8 million, an increase of 35% when compared to $10.2 million reported in the first quarter of 2014. The Company added approximately $1.0 million in new recurring service revenue, $1.2 million in security solutions consulting and software revenues, in addition to an increase of $1.4 million in equipment revenue, compared to the same period in 2014.

Cost of revenue was $11.7 million compared to $8.5 million in 2014. Gross profit for the first quarter of 2015 was $2.1 million, or 15% of revenues, compared to $1.7 million or 17% for the same period in 2014. Margins were negatively impacted due to the implementation phase of bringing new MPS customers online.

Operating expenses for the first quarter were $2.1 million, an increase of 24% from $1.7 million in the first quarter of 2014. Sales and marketing expenses increased by 46% due to increased headcount as the Company increased its sales effort expanding in to the Midwest and building the sales organization's security offering. General and administrative expenses increased 15% to $1.4 million and included professional fees and amortization of intangible assets related to the acquisition of Delphiis. The Company generated a negligible amount of operating income in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $0.03 million in the first quarter of 2014.

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2015 was $33,000, or $0.00 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $71,000 or $0.00 per basic share and $0.01 per diluted share in the same period of 2014. Excluding $79,000 in charges related to stock based compensation and $53,000 from the amortization of intangible assets, the Company achieved positive adjusted income from operations of $0.1 million in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $0.2 million after excluding $0.2 million in charges related to stock-based compensation for the same period last year.

At March 31, 2015 the Company had $5.1 million of cash and cash equivalents and working capital of $2.9 million. Cash provided by operating activities for the first three months of 2015 was $0.4 million compared to $0.1 million during the same period in 2014. The Company maintains a line of credit with a commercial bank for up to $2 million.

Business Updates

On March 31, 2015, the Company signed a definitive agreement to acquire Redspin, Inc., a trusted advisor to the healthcare industry and leading provider of HIPAA security risk assessments and penetration testing services. Staffed by a world-class team of security experts, Redspin helps its clients better safeguard protected health information (PHI) by protecting their IT infrastructure from malicious attackers and improving the security awareness of their workforce. In recent news, security experts expect phishing attacks to be a leading cause of HIPAA breaches in 2015. The recent breach at Partners Health System was caused by a phishing attack as more than 3,000 employees fell prey to these malicious emails. Redspin's security experts assimilate phishing and spear phishing attacks to educate hospital staff on preventing future attempts from hackers using emails as an approach to gain access into the hospital's environment. The company's diverse customer base includes over 135 hospitals, including a top 5 academic medical center, over 1,000 clinics, and many large business associates.

The acquisition was completed on April 7, 2015. Consideration included $2,050,000 in cash, less an indemnification holdback of $200,000, in addition to 452,284 shares of Auxilio's restricted common stock. Additional consideration to be paid of up to $1,200,000 in cash and up to 226,142 shares of Auxilio restricted stock is contingent on earnings and revenues performance targets of the new business over the first twelve months of operations.

In March 2015, the Company launched a five-step approach, designed to provide guidance for healthcare organizations looking to develop best practice security programs. The Security Program Development framework is the first of its kind to be released to healthcare organizations with a detailed step by step approach. The framework is generated from the methodology outlined in the CISO Handbook, co-written by Mike Gentile and includes executive contributions from many of the nation's leading hospitals who have experience building security programs. 

The Company began implementation of the five-year, $18 million MPS contract with the largest region of a Top 10 Health System. In addition, the Company is preparing for the first phase of implementation on its five-year $50 million contract with one of the largest health systems in the United States. Initial work under this agreement commenced in the Michigan region and is expected to take 18 months to implement.
