Patient Home Monitoring (PHM) (TSX VENTURE:PHM), a profitable company with annualized run-rate revenues of $115,000,000 focused on rolling-up annuity-based healthcare service companies in the U.S. and Canada, announced it has executed a non-binding Letter of Intent (LOI) to acquire a regional company in the Midwest United States with a large patient database and management-adjusted unaudited annualized revenues in excess of $18,500,000 and Annualized Adjusted EBITDA in excess of $6,000,000.
This regional business has achieved year-over-year revenue growth in excess of 50% providing home based respiratory products and services in several states across the Midwest United States. The business has a substantial amount of active patients that PHM could potentially cross-sell new services and products. After closing, PHM plans to start immediately cross-selling its existing service lines across all of the acquired locations.
According to the LOI, PHM will acquire the business for a total consideration of approximately $24 million. Closing of the acquisition will be subject to final due diligence and a binding purchase agreement.
"We continue to build M&A pipeline in midsized deals," said Michael Dalsin, Chairman of the Board for PHM. "Once all of the LOIs in the pipeline are closed, PHM's run-rate revenue will exceed $175 million per year. I expect the team will close this LOI, along with the other outstanding LOIs very soon."
"This acquisition is much like the acquisition of Sleep Management," continued Mr. Dalsin. "Both companies have shown a track record for significant revenue growth in their markets. With these two deals, PHM looks to benefit not only from inorganic growth, and cross-selling growth, but also significant organic growth in the years to come."
"Assuming we close all of the outstanding LOIs, PHM will be about a $175 million run rate revenue company with more than $44 million in run rate Adjusted EBITDA meeting our exit revenue run rate goal for 2015 of $175 million."
The explosive growth in the number of elderly patients in the US healthcare market is creating pressure to provide more efficient delivery systems. Healthcare providers, such as hospitals, physicians and pharmacies, are seeking partners that can offer a range of products and services that improve outcomes, reduce hospital readmissions, and help control costs. PHM fills this need by delivering a growing number of specialized products and services to achieve these goals. PHM is a positive cash flow and profitable company that serves patients with heart disease and other chronic health conditions, this operation is a platform for acquisitions and organic growth. PHM is focused on a highly fragmented and developing market of small privately-held companies servicing chronically ill patients with multiple disease states caused mainly by age and obesity. Because of the new and highly fragmented nature of the market, PHM is actively working to identify and evaluate profitable, annuity-based companies to acquire their patient databases and technical expertise at favorable prices. PHM's post acquisition organic growth strategy is to increase annual revenue per patient by offering multiple services to the same patient, consolidating the patient's services and making life easier for the patient. The expected result is growing EPS with each acquisition and growing revenue and profits from the cross selling efforts.
