(a) For the three months ended December 31, 2012 and excluding the impact of
    currency, our growth in the U.K. would have been 25.4%, our growth in

In the fourth quarter of 2012, our U.S. businesses generated pro forma revenues of $82.7 million, a (1.0)% decline from the $83.5 million of pro forma revenues generated in the fourth quarter of 2011. In the fourth quarter, our U.S. revenues were negatively impacted by an estimated $3 million as a result of Hurricane Sandy. For the year ended December 31, 2012, our U.S. businesses generated revenues of $352.8 million, a 2.2% increase over the $345.2 million of pro forma revenues generated in the year ended December 31, 2011. The growth was largely due to increased volumes resulting from market share gains.

Other financial data - We generated $24.8 million of cash flow from operations in 2012, of which $9.7 million was generated in the fourth quarter. We ended the quarter with $8.6 million of cash on hand, approximately $385.0 million of total debt and total leverage of 4.15x. Our total debt consisted of $250.0 million of senior unsecured notes due July 2019, $99.9 million outstanding under the senior secured revolving credit facility, $34.5 million outstanding under the working capital facilities in the U.K., and $575,000 in seller subordinated notes. As of the end of the year, our committed availability under our credit facilities was approximately $180 million, of which approximately $55 million is immediately available and the balance of approximately $125 million is available to fund future acquisitions.

Business Outlook

ExamWorks is providing the following business outlook for the full year and the first quarter of 2013:

  • Full year 2013 reported revenues are expected to increase organically by 5-7% from our 2012 pro forma revenues of approximately $574 million, excluding the effects of currency.

  • Full year 2013 adjusted EBITDA margins are expected to range between 15.5% and 16.5% of reported revenues. The 50 bps change from our prior guidance is the result of significantly higher healthcare costs and employee enrollment into our benefit plans than originally anticipated. On a quarterly basis, adjusted EBITDA margins as a percentage of revenue will fluctuate between 15% and 17%.

  • First quarter 2013 reported revenues are expected to range between $144 million and $148 million.

  • First quarter 2013 reported adjusted EBITDA margins are expected to be approximately 15% of reported revenues.

  • Starting in 2013, we intend to announce acquisitions as they close rather than guiding to an annual number. We believe that this will allow analysts and shareholders to more accurately and consistently model our expected results going forward.

About ExamWorks Group

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In connection with the ongoing operation of our business, our management regularly reviews Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to assess our performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, acquisition-related transaction costs, share-based compensation expenses, and other non-recurring costs. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of our operating performance because it allows management, lenders, investors and analysts to evaluate and assess our core operating results from period to period after removing the impact of changes to our capitalization structure, acquisition related costs, income tax status, and other items of a non-operational nature that affect comparability.

We believe that various forms of the Adjusted EBITDA metric are often used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies such as ours for the reasons discussed above. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA is used to measure certain financial covenants in our credit facility. Adjusted EBITDA is also used for planning purposes and in presentations to our Board of Directors as well as in our incentive compensation programs for our employees.

Non-GAAP information should not be construed as an alternative to GAAP information, as the items excluded from the non-GAAP measures often have a material impact on our financial results. Management uses, and investors should use, non-GAAP measures in conjunction with our GAAP results.

Below is a table presenting a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most comparable GAAP measure, for each of the periods indicated.

As the Internet of Things unfolds, mobile and wearable devices are blurring the line between physical and digital, integrating ever more closely with our interests, our routines, our daily lives. Contextual computing and smart, sensor-equipped spaces bring the potential to walk through a world that recognizes us and responds accordingly. We become continuous transmitters and receivers of data. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Andrew Bolwell, Director of Innovation for HP’s Printing and Personal Systems Group, will discuss how key attributes of mobile technology – touch input, senso...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is making everything it touches smarter – smart devices, smart cars and smart cities. And lucky us, we’re just beginning to reap the benefits as we work toward a networked society. However, this technology-driven innovation is impacting more than just individuals. The IoT has an environmental impact as well, which brings us to the theme of this month’s #IoTuesday Twitter chat. The ability to remove inefficiencies through connected objects is driving change throughout every sector, including waste management. BigBelly Solar, located just outside of Boston, is trans...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, will examine three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics...
Internet of @ThingsExpo Silicon Valley announced on Thursday its first 12 all-star speakers and sessions for its upcoming event, which will take place November 4-6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California. @ThingsExpo, the first and largest IoT event in the world, debuted at the Javits Center in New York City in June 10-12, 2014 with over 6,000 delegates attending the conference.

From a software development perspective IoT is about programming "things," about connecting them with each other or integrating them with existing applications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Yakov Fain, co-founder of Farata Systems and SuranceBay, will show you how small IoT-enabled devices from multiple manufacturers can be integrated into the workflow of an enterprise application. This is a practical demo of building a framework and components in HTML/Java/Mobile technologies to serve as a platform that can integrate new devices as they become available on the market.
