TRANSCEND REPORTS AN 87% INCREASE IN REVENUE
AND A NET LOSS OF $0.06 PER SHARE INCLUDING UNUSUAL ITEMS
Atlanta, Georgia TRANSCEND SERVICES, INC. (TRCR/Nasdaq Market) today announced its results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2005.
For the three months ended December 31, 2005, Transcend reported revenue of $7,304,000, which represents an 87% increase over the comparable prior year quarter. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue decreased to 14% from 29%. The net loss for the fourth quarter of 2005 was $444,000, or $0.06 per share including three unusual items that totaled $276,000. This compares to net income of $82,000, or $0.01 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2004.
Most of the revenue increase of $3,403,000 between the fourth quarters of 2005 and 2004 is attributable to the acquisition of Medical Dictation, Inc. (MDI) on January 31, 2005. MDI contributed revenue of $2,933,000 to the fourth quarter of 2005. Excluding MDI, the Companys revenue increased $470,000 or 12% in the fourth quarter of 2005 compared to the fourth quarter of 2004.
When compared to revenue of $6,654,000 in the third quarter of 2005, revenue increased $650,000 in the fourth quarter of 2005 for the following reasons: (1) an increase in transcription revenue of $597,000 related to new customers installed during 2005; (2) an increase in transcription revenue of $134,000 from existing customers; (3) a decrease in transcription revenue of $103,000 related to customers which have terminated their service contracts; and (4) an increase in other revenue of $22,000.
The Company has signed, but uninstalled, contracts that represent estimated first-year revenue of $920,000 as of December 31, 2005 as well as contracts which have either been acquired or awarded but not yet signed, representing estimated first-year revenue of $1,255,000 as of January 25, 2006. The Company expects to begin generating revenue from all of these during the next several months.
The deterioration in gross profit as a percentage of revenue from 29% in the fourth quarter of 2004 to 14% in the fourth quarter of 2005 is attributable to the following: (1) competitive pricing pressure from both new and existing customers; (2) the addition of MDI, which historically has had lower gross margins; (3) costs associated with the restructuring of operations to improve quality and customer retention; (4) the cost of recruiting and training new transcriptionists and transitioning existing transcriptionists to become speech recognition editors; and (5) a one-time reserve related to a judgment against the company for sales taxes on equipment used for transcription purchased in 20012003.
