88% Increase in Enrollment and 101% Increase in Healthcare Services Revenue

LOS ANGELES, May 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Catasys, Inc. (OTCBB: CATS), provider of proprietary health management services to health insurers and employers, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.


  • CEO Terren Peizer's total investment in Catasys now exceeds $10 million
  • 88% increase in first quarter enrollment compared with the same quarter last year.
  • 101% increase in recognized revenue from the healthcare services segment to $199,000 in the first quarter, compared with the same quarter last year.
  • A previously announced agreement with a national health plan, to provide services to its members in New Jersey, is expected to commence enrollment in the third quarter of 2014. Catasys has generated fees from the launched programs and expects to increase enrollment and fees throughout 2014.
  • Catasys is operating programs in Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Wisconsin. The Wisconsin program, which represents the Company's first managed care Medicaid health plan customer, commenced enrollment in the first quarter of 2014.

Rick Anderson, President and COO commented, "During the first quarter, enrollment began for our first managed care Medicaid health plan customer in Wisconsin, enabling us to build our outcomes data in a Medicaid population, and creating a solid opportunity to expand into a national roll out. We regard Medicaid to be a significant and emergent population, as Medicaid plans tend to be plagued with even greater costs of substance dependence than commercial plans."

Mr. Anderson added, "We are pleased that total enrollment and healthcare services revenue continue to grow at an accelerated pace, up 88% and 101%, respectively. As we continue to expand across states with our current customers, launch enrollment for our second national plan, and convert our pipeline of new national and regional plans, we expect this momentum to continue in the upcoming quarters. We believe that Catasys is poised for transformative and profitable growth, both as enrollment reaches a steady state for plans we already have on board, and as we continue to leverage our platform and infrastructure. In the long term, we estimate that our addressable market may grow up to an additional 7-8 times within these existing plans, as we expand to other mental health indications on which we are currently building analytics. Because of high healthcare costs insurance companies face and our savings rates with OnTrak to date we anticipate expanding into these very exciting new areas in the future, affirming the opportunity which lies ahead of us."

Healthcare Services – Overview

  • Customers – Catasys presently provides its proprietary OnTrak program to health plans in Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
  • Sales Pipeline and Growth – Management expects continued organic growth – as existing insurers continue to recognize the value of the services of our program and expand into new territories and/or lines of business.  Management also expects to continue to grow by signing new insurers. In addition to the signed national insurer, the Company had a sales pipeline of 11.5 million covered lives with 3.7 million in advanced stages of discussion, as of the end of March 31, 2014.
  • Capital Activity$1.0 million was raised in January 2014, $919,500 of which was from our CEO Mr. Peizer.
  • Enrollment – Generally 0.5% of a commercial health plan's covered lives will be eligible for the OnTrak program and the Company anticipates that approximately 20% of those that are eligible will enroll in the program each year after full enrollment is achieved, which is anticipated up to approximately 12 months from the commencement of enrollment.
  • Revenues – Healthcare services revenues are generated either monthly based on enrolled members at approximately $8,500 per year, or as a lower case rate when a member enrolls and a share of cost savings realized. Revenue without performance guarantees is recognized ratably over 12 months. If contracts contain a minimum performance guarantee, that portion of the monthly fee subject to the guarantee is reserved as deferred revenue until the performance measurement period is completed. Savings shares are recognized when they are paid.

First Quarter 2014 Results of Operations

For the first quarter of fiscal 2014, total revenues increased 61% to $218,000 compared with $135,000 for the same period last year. Increased total revenues are primarily a result of an increase in healthcare services revenue. The Company reported income from operations before income taxes of $2.1 million, or $0.11 per basic share and $0.08 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2014, compared with income from operations before income taxes of $2.6 million, or $0.22 per basic share and $0.16 per diluted share, in the first quarter last year. The financial statements have been retroactively restated to reflect the 10-for-1 reverse stock split that occurred on May 6, 2013.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2014 were $1.8 million, essentially unchanged, when compared with the first quarter in 2013.
