Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Allscripts reports its financial results in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP. To supplement this information, Allscripts presents in this release non-GAAP revenue, gross profit, operating income and net income, including non-GAAP net income on a per share basis, and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures under Section 101 of Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

  • Non-GAAP revenue consists of GAAP revenue as reported and adds back deferred revenue and other adjustments recorded for GAAP purposes.
  • Non-GAAP gross profit consists of GAAP gross profit as reported and adds back deferred revenue and other adjustments booked for GAAP purposes and excludes acquisition-related amortization, stock-based compensation expense, and non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs.
  • Non-GAAP operating income consists of GAAP operating income/(loss) as reported and adds back deferred revenue and other adjustments booked for GAAP purposes and excludes acquisition-related amortization, stock-based compensation expense, non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs, and non-cash asset impairment charges.
  • Non-GAAP net income consists of GAAP net income/(loss) as reported, excludes acquisition-related amortization, stock-based compensation expense, non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs, and non-cash asset impairment charges, and adds back deferred revenue and other adjustments, in each case net of any related tax effects. Non-GAAP net income also includes a tax rate alignment adjustment.
  • Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure and consists of GAAP net income (loss) as reported and adjusts for: the provision for revenue deferral; provision/(benefit) for income taxes; net interest expense and interest income and other income/(expense); stock-based compensation expense; depreciation and amortization; deferred revenue and other adjustments; non-recurring and transaction-related costs; and non-cash asset impairment charges.

Deferred Revenue and Other Adjustments. Deferred revenue and other adjustments includes acquisition-related deferred revenue adjustments which reflect the fair value adjustments to deferred revenues acquired in business acquisitions. The fair value of deferred revenue represents an amount equivalent to the estimated cost plus an appropriate profit margin, to perform services related to the acquiree's software and product support, which assumes a legal obligation to do so, based on the deferred revenue balances as of the acquisition date. Also included are adjustments for changes in the fair value of a warrant issued to a commercial partner and the effects of straight-lining contractual pricing adjustments over the performance period. Allscripts adds back deferred revenue and other adjustments for its non-GAAP financial measures because it believes the inclusion of this amount directly correlates to the underlying performance of Allscripts operations.

Provision for Revenue Deferral.  Provision for Revenue Deferral reflects a non-recurring revenue deferral related to clients who have long-aged accounts receivable balances.

Acquisition-Related Amortization.  Acquisition-related amortization expense is a non-cash expense arising primarily from the acquisition of intangible assets in connection with acquisitions or investments. Allscripts excludes acquisition-related amortization expense from non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income and non-GAAP net income because it believes (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of Allscripts business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods as a result of new acquisitions and full amortization of previously acquired intangible assets.  Investors should note that the use of these intangible assets contributed to revenue in the periods presented and will contribute to future revenue generation and the related amortization expense will recur in future periods.

Stock-Based Compensation Expense. Stock-based compensation expense is a non-cash expense arising from the grant of stock awards to employees. Allscripts excludes stock-based compensation expense from non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income non-GAAP net income and Adjusted EBITDA because it believes (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of Allscripts business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods as a result of the timing of grants of new stock-based awards, including grants in connection with acquisitions. Investors should note that stock-based compensation is a key incentive offered to employees whose efforts contributed to the operating results in the periods presented and are expected to contribute to operating results in future periods and such expense will recur in future periods.

Non-Recurring Expenses and Transaction-Related Costs.  Non-recurring expenses in the fourth quarter of 2013 relate to certain severance, product consolidation, legal, consulting, and other charges incurred in connection with activities that are considered one-time. 

Transaction-related costs during the fourth quarter of 2013 are deferred compensation expenses, incurred in connection with the acquisitions of dbMotion, Ltd. and Jardogs.  Allscripts excludes non-recurring expenses and transaction-related costs from non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income and Adjusted EBITDA because it believes (i) the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of Allscripts business operations and (ii) such expenses can vary significantly between periods.  

Non-Cash Charges to Interest Expense and Other.  Non-cash charges to interest expense and other includes the write-off of deferred debt issuance costs associated with the refinancing of the Company's credit facilities during the second quarter of 2013 and non-cash amortization of the fair value of the cash conversion option embedded in the 1.25 percent Cash Convertible Notes issued by Allscripts during the second quarter of 2013.  Also included in this amount are non-cash adjustments to reflect changes in the fair value of derivative financial instruments related to the 1.25 percent Cash Convertible Notes that do not qualify for hedge accounting treatment.

Non-Cash Asset Impairment Charges. Asset impairment charges during the three months and year ended December 31, 2013 relate primarily to product consolidation activities associated with the dbMotion acquisition in the first quarter of 2013 and additional asset impairment related to converging the MyWay Electronic Health Record System ("MyWay") with the Professional Suite Electronic Health Record System ("Professional Suite").

On October 3, 2012, Allscripts announced a plan to standardize its small office electronic health record and practice management systems. As part of this plan, Allscripts will converge, over time, its MyWay and Professional Suite solutions. As a result, the Company recorded an $11.1 million non-cash charge to earnings in the quarter ended September 30, 2012 related to the impairment of previously capitalized software development costs for MyWay plus the net carrying value of a perpetual license for certain software code incorporated in MyWay.

Settlement of Acquired Tax Position. Pursuant to the Framework Agreement between Misys plc and Allscripts signed in 2010, Misys plc agreed to indemnify Allscripts against potential contingent tax liabilities for which it could be potentially liable, arising from Allscripts' purchase of Allscripts shares from Misys plc in 2010.

During the three months ended September 30, 2012, Allscripts settled the acquired tax position indemnified by Misys plc for an amount less than the carrying value of the unrecognized tax liability totaling $29 million. Accordingly, the result for GAAP purposes was the write-off of the remaining tax indemnification asset totaling $16 million, on a pre-tax basis. This charge is substantially not deductible for tax purposes.  In addition, the Company decreased its unrecognized tax liability and recorded an offsetting tax benefit of $16 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. More details on this topic are available on Forms S-4, 10-K and 10-Q filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 29, 2010, February 29, 2012 and August 9, 2012, respectively, as well as in other Company filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Tax Rate Alignment.  Tax adjustment to align the current quarter's effective tax rate to the expected annual non-GAAP effective tax rate.  Accordingly, the non-GAAP effective tax rate for the year ended December 31, 2013 excludes the impact of a deferred tax asset valuation allowance adjustments recorded in the third quarter during the year.

Management also believes that non-GAAP revenue, gross profit, operating income, net income and non-GAAP net income on a per share basis, and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful supplemental information to management and investors regarding the underlying performance of Allscripts' business operations. Acquisition accounting adjustments made in accordance with GAAP can make it difficult to make meaningful comparisons of the underlying operations of the business without considering the non-GAAP adjustments provided and discussed herein.  Management also uses this information internally for forecasting and budgeting, as it believes that these measures are indicative of core operating results. In addition, management may use non-GAAP revenue, operating income, net income and/or Adjusted EBITDA to measure achievement under Allscripts' stock and cash incentive compensation plans. Note, however, that non-GAAP revenue, gross profit, operating income and net income and non-GAAP net income on a per share basis and Adjusted EBITDA are performance measures only, and they do not provide any measure of cash flow or liquidity. Non-GAAP financial measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with Allscripts results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.  Investors and potential investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures with GAAP financial measures with GAAP financial measures contained within the attached condensed consolidated financial statements.
