MONTREAL, Aug. 29, 2022 /CNW/ – Carebook Technologies Inc. (“Carebook” or the “Company“) (TSXV: CRBK) (OTCPK: CRBKF) (XFRA: PMM1), a leading Canadian provider of innovative digital health solutions today announced its results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2022.
“Our second quarter results continue the positive trend begun at the start of our current fiscal year as we benefit from the successful integration of our acquisitions of Wellness Checkpoint and CoreHealth,” commented Michael Peters, Carebook CEO. “Our recent announcements of major wins with tier one employers provides true validation of the success of our strategy and renewed focus on the growing employer market. Major companies across North America, like Air Canada and Metro Inc., are recognizing Carebook for the innovative and powerful digital health and wellness solutions we offer that can provide meaningful relief to the challenges faced by their clients and employees. When coupled with the significant enhancements to our statement of work with our major pharmacy client, we are solidifying Carebook as a major player in the digital health and wellness market that positions us for continued growth going forward.”
Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, was $2.3 million, compared to $1.1 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2021, an increase of 105% which was primarily driven by the acquisitions of InfoTech in Q2 2021 and CoreHealth in Q3 2021. Revenue generated in the quarter ended June 30, 2021, was 28% from the employer vertical and 72% from the pharmacy vertical, whereas revenue generated in the quarter ended June 30, 2022 was 25% pharmacy and 75% employer.
Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, was $2.4 million compared to $2.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, a decrease of 14.6% year-over-year. While the acquisitions of InfoTech and CoreHealth increased operating expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2022, this was more than offset by the incremental revenue and cost synergies that were implemented after the acquisitions.
Record New Contracts Booked
During the quarter, Carebook booked a record $5 million in new sales ranging from one to five years in length. These contracts, from a diverse base of clients located in the U.S. and Canada, provide confirmation of the success of Carebook’s strategy and renewed focus on the fast-growing employer vertical as well as significant additional work within the pharmacy sector.
On April 25, 2022, Carebook announced a contract with Air Canada for the inclusion of the Carebook CoreHealth platform in its employee portals. Air Canada is using Carebook’s CoreHealth total well-being platform to connect their employees to a comprehensive suite of leading health and wellness programs, content and solutions. CoreHealth’s platform is easy to use and highly configurable giving Air Canada the ability to deliver specific wellness programming to meet the individual needs of its employees. The CoreHealth solution builds upon the current organizational understandings provided by Carebook’s Wellness Checkpoint assessment tool which has been in use with Air Canada since 2017. When coupled together, these two leading solutions offer Air Canada an unparalleled opportunity to curate relevant programming that will help improve the health and wellness of all Air Canada employees. Air Canada will be one of the first world-class employers to benefit from the combined power of Carebook’s integrated assessment and wellness solutions and provides the company with an international showcase for its solutions capability.
Largest Single Contract Received by CoreHealth
On June 15, 2022, Carebook’s wholly owned subsidiary CoreHealth announced it had received its largest single contract ever from a U.S. based global leader in employee benefits offering services to more than one million plan participants. The $2.9 million multi-year contract contemplates the migration of all plan participants to the CoreHealth platform over the next 36 months. CoreHealth’s solution was selected after a competitive process because of the capabilities of its technology to offer flexible, configurable, and scalable solutions that are above all easy to integrate.
Expansion of Statement of Work (“SOW”) With Major Pharmacy Client
On July 13, 2022, Carebook announced a significant order under its pharmacy solution agreement with its major pharmacy client. The additional statement of work (“SOW“) expanding the scope under the agreement was signed in June and is worth an incremental $1.5 million over a one-year term, representing an increase of 83% in pharmacy contract value for Carebook.
Carebook has completed the expansion of its existing team for the solution, nearly doubling capacity to deliver on the continued development of its robust, customer-facing platform.
