ATLANTA – March 29, 2023 – Sharecare (Nasdaq: SHCR), the digital health company that helps people manage all their health in one place, today announced financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2022.
“We are pleased with our financial performance in the quarter and over the full year, during which we hit several key milestones for our core Enterprise business, including contracting over 900,000 new eligible lives for Sharecare+, our digital-first advocacy solution, and 1.8 million new members for CareLinx, our tech-enabled home health offering, as well as exceeding our target KPI for eligible lives with 12.4 million,” said Jeff Arnold, chairman and CEO of Sharecare. “Our foundation is solid, and we are committed to continue growing Sharecare’s eligible lives, increasing our PMPMs, becoming more profitable, and, most importantly, measurably improving the well-being of each of our members.”
Mr. Arnold added, “Last year, we announced plans to conduct a strategic review to clearly understand all of the potential options to maximize our shareholder value. We have expanded the review to include potential business combinations to complement our thriving Enterprise channel, which is yielding a growing and robust pipeline, new customer wins across the employer, payor, and government sectors as well as high client retention as we continue to expand our core comprehensive digital platform with our innovative product offerings. Further, the strategic review has also affirmed the value of our Provider channel; garnering attractive valuations on a standalone basis and we continue to actively evaluate ways to unlock that value, while increasing profitability through global outsourcing and growing and retaining clients.”

Excluding these items, the adjusted net loss was $5.3 million in the current quarter.

Excluding these items, the adjusted net loss was $20.5 million in the current year.

Further, we anticipate nearly doubling our adjusted EBITDA in 2023 and are confident in our ability to deliver increased value for our shareholders while ensuring continued growth and success in the evolving healthcare landscape.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to our financial results determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, we believe the non-GAAP measures adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted earnings (loss) per share (“adjusted EPS”) are useful in evaluating our operating performance. We use adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted EPS to evaluate our ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when taken together with the corresponding GAAP financial measures, provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our business, results of operations, or outlook. In particular, we believe that the use of these non-GAAP measures is helpful to our investors as these metrics are used by management in assessing the health of our business and our operating performance. However, non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental informational purposes only, has limitations as an analytical tool, and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. In addition, other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate similarly-titled non-GAAP measures differently or may use other measures to evaluate their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of our non-GAAP financial measures.
The calculations and reconciliations of historic adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income (loss), and adjusted EPS to net income (loss), the most directly comparable financial measure stated in accordance with GAAP, are provided below and in the accompanying financial tables. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
We have not reconciled adjusted EBITDA guidance to net income (loss) because we do not provide guidance for net income (loss) or for items that we do not consider indicative of our ongoing performance, including, but not limited to, the impact of significant non-recurring items, as certain of these items are out of our control and/or cannot be reasonably predicted. Accordingly, reconciliations of adjusted EBITDA guidance to the corresponding U.S. GAAP measures are not available without unreasonable effort.
We calculate adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude (i) depreciation and amortization, (ii) interest income, (iii) interest expense, (iv) income tax (benefit) expense, (v) loss on extinguishment of debt, (vi) other (income) expense (non-operating), (vii) share-based compensation, (viii) warrants issued with revenue contracts, (ix) amortization of non-cash payment for research and development, (x) net costs associated with exiting contracts, (xi) non-operating, non-recurring costs, (xii) reorganizational and severance costs, and (xiii) acquisition-related costs. We do not view the items excluded as representative of our ongoing operations.
Adjusted Net Income (Loss)
We calculate adjusted net income (loss) as net income (loss) attributable to Sharecare, Inc. adjusted to exclude (i) amortization of acquired intangibles, (ii) amortization of deferred financing fees, (iii) change in fair value of warrant liability and contingent consideration, (iv) share-based compensation, (v) warrants issued with revenue contracts, (vi) amortization of non-cash payment for research and development, (vii) net costs associated with exiting contracts, (viii) non-operating, non-recurring costs, (ix) reorganizational and severance costs, and (x) acquisition related costs. We do not view the items excluded as representative of our ongoing operations.
Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Per Share
We calculate adjusted EPS as adjusted net income (loss), as defined above, divided by the number of weighted average common shares outstanding – basic and diluted.
