Recent Events

COVID-19

In December 2019, an outbreak of a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) originated in Wuhan, China and spread to a number of other countries, including the United States and Canada. In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 outbreak a pandemic and the United States declared a national emergency with respect to COVID-19. The impact of the outbreak has been rapidly evolving and has led to the implementation of various responses, including government-imposed quarantines, travel restrictions, business and school closures and other public health safety measures. It has also disrupted the normal operations of many businesses, including ours. COVID-19 has also disrupted, and we believe will continue to disrupt, the normal operations of our clients, which are primarily healthcare providers. Because our business relies, in part, on the growth and success of our clients, any disruption to our clients’ operations will impact our revenue as follows:

  • Subscription and related services: Disruptions to provider operations, including travel restrictions and provider office closures, impact our subscription and related services revenue because of disruptions to sales processes and client implementations.
  • Payment processing: The decline in non-essential and elective patient visits directly impacts the revenue we receive from payment processing tools.
  • Life sciences: Because our life sciences revenue is driven by the number of patients receiving targeted messages, a decline in patient visits may impact our revenue earned through patient engagement.

Beginning in early September 2020, we saw patient visits return to pre-pandemic levels as some of the restrictions and other safety measures have been lifted. We have seen positive trends as a result of our ability to use our Platform and solutions to assist our healthcare provider clients as they implement new safety protocols in order to continue to see patients, including minimizing contact during intake of patients, mobile check-in, transitioning patients to telehealth visits and enabling providers to screen patients for COVID-19 risk factors. Our COVID-19 module was used in over 30 million patient screenings between February 10, 2020 and November 30, 2020.

Given the unknown timeline and the near-term uncertainty of COVID-19 on our business, there continues to be uncertainty as to the extent to which the global COVID-19 pandemic may adversely impact our business operations, financial performance, and results of operations at this time. Further, due to recent surges of COVID-19 cases in many states, or a second wave, we may see quarantines and additional restrictions being put in place again, which could impact patient visits across our provider clients similar to the trends during the earlier periods of the pandemic.

Principal Executive Offices

In March 2020, in the wake of the pandemic, we prepared the Company for indefinite remote work. Consistent with our long-term plans for remote work, we made the decision to allow our New York City Office lease to expire at the end of January 2021. We will continue to have a significant employee presence in the New York City area, including our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Operating Officer. However, effective December 9, 2020, our Raleigh, North Carolina office will become our principal executive offices.

Outlook for Fiscal 2021 and Fiscal 2022

For the full fiscal year 2021, ending January 31, 2021, the Company expects to report revenue of $146 to $147 million. For the full fiscal year 2022, ending January 31, 2022, the Company expects revenue to grow between 20 and 25 percent over fiscal year 2021.

Non-GAAP financial measures

Adjusted EBITDA is a supplemental measure of our performance that is not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or loss or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of our liquidity. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income or loss, before interest (income) expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and before non-cash stock-based compensation expense, non-cash change in fair value of warrant liability and other (income) expense.

We have provided below a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. We have presented Adjusted EBITDA in this release and our Annual Report on Form 10-K because it is a key measure used by our management and board of directors to understand and evaluate our core operating performance and trends, to prepare and approve our annual budget, and to develop short and long-term operational plans. In particular, we believe that the exclusion of the amounts eliminated in calculating Adjusted EBITDA can provide a useful measure for period-to-period comparisons of our core business. Accordingly, we believe that Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and board of directors.

Our use of Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our financial results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are as follows:

  • Although depreciation and amortization expense are non-cash charges, the assets being depreciated and amortized may have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect cash capital expenditure requirements for such replacements or for new capital expenditure requirements;
  • Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect: (1) changes in, or cash requirements for, our working capital needs; (2) the potentially dilutive impact of non-cash stock-based compensation; or (3) tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us; (4) cash payments for interest and other non-operating expenses; and
  • Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA or similarly titled measures differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these and other limitations, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA along with other GAAP-based financial performance measures, including various cash flow metrics, net loss, and our GAAP financial results. The following table presents a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss for each of the periods indicated:

  • Provider clients. We define provider clients as the average number of healthcare provider organizations that generate revenue each month during the applicable period. In one specific case wherein, we act as a subcontractor providing white-label services to our partner’s clients, we treat this contractual relationship as a single provider client. We believe growth in the number of provider clients is a key indicator of the performance of our business and depends, in part, on our ability to successfully develop and market our platform to healthcare provider organizations that are not yet clients. While growth in the number of provider clients is an important indicator of expected revenue growth, it also informs our management of the areas of our business that will require further investment to support expected future provider client growth. For example, as the number of provider clients increases, we may need to add to our customer support team and invest to maintain effectiveness and performance of our platform and software for our provider clients and their patients.
  • Average revenue per provider client. We define average revenue per provider client as the total subscription and related services and payment processing revenue generated from provider clients in a given period divided by the average number of provider clients that generate revenue each month during that same period. We are focused on continually delivering value to our provider clients and believe that our ability to increase average revenue per provider client is an indicator of the long-term value of our existing provider client relationships.
  • Patient payment volume. We measure patient payment volume as the total dollar volume of transactions between our provider clients and their patients utilizing our payment platform, including via credit and debit cards, cash and check. Patient payment volume is a major driver of our payment processing revenue, and we believe that patient payment volume is an indicator of both the underlying health of our provider clients’ businesses and the continuing shift of healthcare costs to patients. Credit and debit patient payment volume processed through our payment facilitator model represented 80% and 82% of our patient payment volume in the three months ended October 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Credit and debit patient payment volume processed through our payment facilitator model represented 82% and 83% of our patient payment volume in the nine months ended October 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The remainder of our patient payment volume is composed of credit and debit transactions for which Phreesia acts as a gateway to another payment processor, and cash and check transactions.
