Q4 2015 Financial Summary

Net revenue in the fourth quarter of 2015 was increased to $2.02 million versus $1.97 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase was due to both increased promotion of pharmaceutical brands and expanded distribution channels.

 

Operating expenses were $1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2015, as compared to $0.8 million in the same year-ago quarter. The increase was primarily due to technology investment, which included securing access to the Allscripts Touchworks platform and exclusivity across all Allscripts platforms.

Management Commentary

“In 2015, our record revenue was driven by promotional transactions, which were up 25%,” said William Febbo, OptimizeRx’s CEO. “The increase was primarily due to the addition of new pharmaceutical manufacturers and brands to our SampleMD platform. In fact, we distributed eCoupons for 85 different brands in 2015 versus 70 brands in 2014.

 

“During the year, we also expanded our network of leading EHRs with the successful launch of our eCoupon solution within the Practice Fusion network, the #1 cloud-based electronic health record for doctors and patients. We also deepened our strategic partnership with WPP/Grey Health Group, a leading agency within the healthcare marketplace, which included a significant investment by an affiliated entity of WPP and additional access to brands through WPP’s trusted relationships.

 

“We also became Allscripts exclusive provider of eCoupons for all of its platforms, including integrating our e-Coupons solution with their Touchworks network. Touchworks is used by large health systems throughout the country, so this represents a major expansion of our network. The integration of e-Coupon functionality with Touchworks is expected to launch on a test basis in late 2016, and then on a wide scale in early 2017.

 

“Our recent TrialCard partnership allows its pharmaceutical clients to incorporate our OptimizeRx service offering into their co-pay savings program. We plan to continue to increase our marketing efforts with all of our strategic partners. These activities give us broader access to pharmaceutical clients while allowing our partners to expand their product offering and revenue potential.

 

“We estimate our revenue growth in 2015 would have been about $650,000 higher if it were not for one of our EHRs, who focuses on urology, turned off our program mid-year in order to undergo a technology and contract review. We are currently working to bring them back online, and anticipate the associated revenue will contribute significantly to our 2016 results.

 

“A priority in 2016 is to restore and grow non-core revenues associated with brand integration products and clinical messaging. These services are both critical to adoption and return on investment to our clients, as well as complimentary to our core services.

 

“In 2016, we are also planning to acquire, integrate and expand into new promotional EHR and eRx platforms, as well as expand our sales team and further leverage our channel partnerships. Given our strong balance sheet along with our partnership with WPP, we plan to make strategic investments to grow our pharmaceutical products and distribution network. While we expect our distribution of eCoupons to continue to increase this year, we are also focused on growing our clinical messaging and brand integration products and services. Given these activities, we see strong topline growth in 2016.”
