MOORESTOWN, N.J., May 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc. (“TRHC”, the “Company,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) (Nasdaq:TRHC), a leading healthcare technology company advancing the safe use of medications, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022.
“In early 2022, the Company decided to divest non-core assets to both refine our strategic direction and to unlock shareholder value, recognizing that these businesses are significantly undervalued as part of TRHC. These actions are one of several important and ongoing steps we are taking to deliver profitable growth. With a strengthened balance sheet and renewed focus, we are excited about our go-forward vision and the opportunities to grow our core value-based care business including our offerings targeted at the PACE market and advance our groundbreaking MedWise® science,” said Calvin H. Knowlton, PhD, TRHC’s Chief Executive Officer, Chairman and Founder.
First Quarter 2022 Financial Results
All comparisons, unless otherwise noted, are to the three months ended March 31, 2021.
- Revenue – Revenue from continuing operations of $67.1 million increased 14% compared to $58.8 million in 2021. Product (medication) revenue of $51.0 million increased 22%, while service revenue of $16.1 million decreased 5% from the year ago period. Excluding $2.4 million of revenue related to the CMS Enhanced Medication Therapy Management (EMTM) pilot program included in the first quarter of 2021, service revenue increased 11%. The CMS EMTM pilot program concluded at the end of 2021. Revenue of $16.5 million from the PrescribeWellness, SinfoníaRx, and DoseMe businesses are classified as discontinued operations.
- GAAP net loss – GAAP net loss from continuing operations of $20.4 million compares to a loss of $13.4 million a year ago, driven in large part by a non-cash $4.1 million long-lived asset impairment charge attributable to the Company’s decision to sell PrescribeWellness, SinfoníaRx, and DoseMe. Gross margin, excluding depreciation and amortization, of $14.4 million declined as compared to $14.8 million a year ago. The decline in gross margin was driven by a combination of factors including: 1) the loss of the previously mentioned EMTM revenue; 2) costs associated with initiating our previously announced business process outsourcing (BPO) transition within our PeakTPA third-party administration and electronic health record (i.e. TruChart and PACElogic) services; and 3) increased shipping fees within our CareKinesis pharmacy operations. Combined research and development, sales and marketing, and general and administrative expenses, including stock-based compensation, increased $1.8 million, or 9%. Depreciation and amortization of $5.7 million compares with $4.8 million a year ago.
- Adjusted EBITDA – Adjusted EBITDA of $2.5 million declined as compared to $3.6 million a year ago due to the lower gross margins and certain higher operating expenses cited above.
A reconciliation of generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) in the United States to non-GAAP results has been provided in this press release in the accompanying tables. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”
We are in active discussions to sell the PrescribeWellness, SinfoníaRx, and DoseMe businesses. The expected proceeds will provide the Company the financial flexibility to optimize its capital structure, including significantly reducing net debt and increasing liquidity, as well as to focus on its core business. Management expects the divestitures to enable a significantly improved cost structure.
Given the planned divestitures described above, the below metrics are focused on our core CareVention HealthCare segment.
- We increased our total PACE participant base by 11% as of March 31, 2022 as compared to the same period a year ago, and our average PACE per member per month revenue increased 8% as of March 31, 2022 as compared to the same period a year ago.
- With respect to our net PACE enrollment for our CareKinesis pharmacy services, our average monthly sequential growth during the first quarter of 2022 was 0.7%. Our net PACE enrollment during April 2022 increased by 0.8% on a monthly sequential basis as compared to March 2022 and is 10% higher as compared to April 2021.
- Our PACE backlog as of March 31, 2022 stands at 60 implementations (by product and/or service), valued at $60 million in annual revenue at maturity, which the Company defines as enrollment of 250 participants. By comparison, these figures were 62 implementations and $45 million at December 31, 2021. The sequential growth in backlog versus the end of 2021 was driven by several large new PACE contracts signed in the first quarter of 2022. During the first quarter of 2022, a total of 13 PACE implementations went live, which compares with nine during the fourth quarter of 2021 and three during the first quarter of 2021.
The Company is providing the following forward-looking revenue guidance for its continuing operations and will no longer provide guidance for its discontinued operations (our PrescribeWellness, SinfoníaRx, and DoseMe businesses). This outlook updates the previously issued financial guidance that was provided on February 24, 2022. Until the Company has greater visibility on the timing of a close date on the planned asset sales described above, we are delaying providing adjusted EBITDA guidance at this time but expect to reinstate such guidance later in 2022.
With respect to the above guidance, we note the following:
- For the balance of 2022, the Company is forecasting monthly net enrollment sequential growth within its CareVention pharmacy services to be consistent with the 0.7% monthly sequential growth observed in the first quarter of 2022.
Members of the Company’s executive team will be presenting at the following conferences: (1) RBC Capital Markets Global Healthcare Conference, May 17-18, (2) Benchmark Healthcare House Call Conference, June 2, and (3) Stifel Virtual Cross Sector Insight Conference, June 7-9.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to reporting all financial information required in accordance with GAAP, TRHC is also reporting Adjusted EBITDA, which is considered a non-GAAP financial measure. Generally, a non-GAAP financial measure is a numerical measure of a company’s performance or financial position that either excludes or includes amounts that are not normally excluded or included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA consists of net loss plus certain other expenses, which includes interest expense, provision for income tax, depreciation and amortization, impairment charges, business optimization expenses, severance costs, divestiture-related expense, acquisition-related expense, and stock-based compensation expense. TRHC considers business optimization expenses to include contract termination payments, severance, retention payments, and other employee and non-recurring vendor costs incurred related to our business optimization initiatives during 2022. TRHC considers severance costs to include severance payments related to the realignment of our resources. TRHC considers divestiture-related expense to include nonrecurring direct transaction costs. TRHC considers acquisition-related expense to include nonrecurring direct transaction and integration costs. TRHC believes the exclusion of these items assists in providing a more complete understanding of the company’s underlying operations results and trends and allows for comparability with TRHC’s peer company index and industry and to be more consistent with TRHC’s expected capital structure on a going forward basis.
TRHC presents this non-GAAP financial measure in this release because it considers it to be an important supplemental measure of performance. TRHC uses this non-GAAP financial measure for planning purposes, including analysis of the company’s performance against prior periods, the preparation of operating budgets and determination of appropriate levels of operating and capital investments. TRHC believes that this non-GAAP financial measure provides additional insight for analysts and investors in evaluating the company’s financial and operational performance. TRHC also intends to provide this non-GAAP financial measure as part of the Company’s future earnings discussions and, therefore, its inclusion should provide consistency in the Company’s financial reporting.
Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as an analytical tool. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to its most directly comparable GAAP measures provided in this release, including in the accompanying tables.
