American CareSource Reports 87% Growth in First Quarter Urgent Care Revenue

ATLANTA, May 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American CareSource Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:GNOW), an urgent and primary care company operating under the tradenames GoNow Doctors and Medac, today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2016.

Urgent and primary care segment revenue was $5.0 million for the first quarter, an increase of 87% from $2.67 million for the first quarter of 2015. The Company's operating loss decreased by 51% to $1.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 from $3.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015. Center-level, adjusted EBITDA was $326,000, an increase of $776,000 from $(450,000) for the first quarter of 2015. A reconciliation of all non-GAAP financial measures can be found at the end of this release.

The Company's first quarter revenue growth was driven by operational improvements implemented by the Company's new executive management team and by the full-quarter inclusion of the results of Medac Health Services, PA.  The Company purchased substantially all the assets of Medac in December 2015.  The executive management changes made in the first quarter were as follows:

"We are pleased to report a successful first quarter of 2016," said Adam Winger, President and Chief Executive Officer of GoNow. "In addition to producing positive center-level EBITDA, we continue to implement measures to improve our revenue cycle and reduce expenses."  Among the measures taken in the first quarter, the Company executed a reduction in force, closed an underperforming facility, and moved and subleased its corporate office space.  Furthermore, on April 1, GoNow exited the Virginia market by selling its two clinics located in Gainesville and Fair Lakes, Virginia. "Although we expect the full impact of these efforts to be reflected in our second quarter financial results, we are proud to report significant revenue growth while achieving a 46% reduction in quarterly, year-over-year corporate overhead," said Mr. Winger.

GoNow also entered into a strategic development arrangement with Birmingham-based commercial real estate firm, Harbert Realty Services.  Under the arrangement, Harbert may build and develop up to 10 new GoNow Doctors facilities throughout Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina and Florida over the next 12 months. If we move forward with the arrangement, Harbert will pay all costs to acquire the land and construct the facilities according to our plans and specifications in exchange for GoNow's entry into a long-term lease. 

"We are excited about our progress, and we believe the pathway is now clear for significant year-over-year growth in our urgent and primary care business."
