ATLANTA – August 10, 2022 – Sharecare (Nasdaq: SHCR), the digital health company that helps people manage all their health in one place, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022. In addition, the company announced that it has signed a memorandum of understanding for a multi-year strategic partnership with Carelon to integrate Sharecare’s advocacy capabilities into Carelon’s Health Guide services that currently support hundreds of thousands of members. Sharecare has also initiated a strategic review of its non-enterprise businesses to enhance shareholder value, which management and the board of directors do not believe is currently reflected in the share price. The company’s $50 million share repurchase program previously announced on May 12, 2022, remains in place.
“Sharecare delivered solid second quarter results exceeding revenue and EBITDA guidance with continued progress on deploying our digital first strategy to drive enhanced engagement, increased access, and improved outcomes for our clients,” said Jeff Arnold, chairman and CEO of Sharecare. “We remain confident in our ability to execute on our strategy given the continued demand and momentum in new business opportunities and client wins along with retaining our current customer base, which will support accelerated revenue growth and operating performance in 2023.”
Mr. Arnold added, “Sharecare provides a comprehensive digital health navigation platform supporting a significant number of top payors and employers to deliver value to more than 11 million members every day. We are committed to continuing to improve operating performance while advancing innovative solutions for our customers. One example of the value Sharecare continues to bring to its customers is the successful launch of Sharecare+, a digital first advocacy platform developed in partnership with Elevance Health. Our partnership with Carelon will be the next step in driving significant scale of our solution.”
Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results
All comparisons, unless otherwise noted, are to the three months ended June 30, 2021.
- Revenue of $103.8 million compared to $98.5 million, an increase of $5.3 million, or 5%.
- Net loss attributable to Sharecare of $29.0 million compared to net loss attributable to Sharecare of $20.2 million, an increase of $8.8 million. Adjusted net loss attributable to Sharecare of $6.8 million compared to adjusted net loss attributable to Sharecare of $3.6 million in the prior year period.
- Adjusted EBITDA of $2.1 million compared to $6.6 million, a decrease of $4.5 million, which reflects increased investments in people, most importantly, as well as sales force expansion to support growth, a sunset of the high-margin health security product, and the additional costs of being a public company.
- Net loss per share of $0.08 compared to $0.09, a decrease to net loss per share of $0.01, which reflects the aforementioned items impacting net loss.
- Adjusted loss per share of $0.02 for both periods, which excludes the impact of non-cash and non-operational amounts.
There is no definitive timeline for the company’s strategic review, nor has the board of directors made any decisions related to any actions or potential strategic alternatives to fully unlock value of the company’s assets and potential that are not fully reflected in the market today; therefore, the company does not intend to comment further until it determines that additional disclosure is appropriate or necessary.
In light of a delayed start date for a large enterprise client, the initiation of the strategic review, changing macro-economic environment affecting life sciences, and certain cost initiatives being undertaken by the company, Sharecare is suspending financial guidance for 2022. The company will hold an analyst day in Q4 2022.
The company will host a conference call to review the second quarter results today, Wednesday August 10, 2022, at 8:00 a.m. EDT. The conference call can be accessed by dialing (833) 636-1352 for U.S. participants, or (412) 902-4148 for international participants, and referencing the Sharecare call; or via live audio webcast, also available online at https://investors.sharecare.com. A webcast replay of the call will be available for on-demand listening at the same link and will remain available for approximately 90 days.
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) other (income)/expense (non-operating), (vi) share-based compensation, (vii) severance, (viii) warrants issued with revenue contracts, (ix) net costs associated with exiting contracts, and (x) transaction and closing 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) severance, (vi) warrants issued with revenue contracts, (vii) net costs associated with exiting contracts, (viii) transaction and closing costs, and (ix) the related income tax adjustments. 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.
