CompuGroup Medical SE & Co. KGaA (CGM), one of the world’s leading e-health providers, reports an excellent start into the year 2023.
Group revenues, organic growth and adjusted EBITDA show double-digit growth in the first quarter. The strong execution on the attractive growth opportunities in the healthcare sector due to ongoing digitization and connectivity initiatives resulted in group revenue growth of 16% to EUR 291 million in Q1 2023 and organic growth of +11%. The quality of revenues, reflected by the share of recurring revenues, stood at a high level of 68% despite significant one-offs. Adjusted EBITDA reached EUR 60 million, which corresponds to a growth of 16% year-on-year, and to an adjusted EBITDA margin of 20.6% (previous year: 20.5%).
“It is great to see how the CGM team performed a strong start into 2023, supporting our customers benefitting from digitization opportunities in the e-health sector and helping them on their digital and connectivity journey”, said Michael Rauch, Spokesman for the Managing Directors and CFO of CompuGroup Medical. “CompuGroup Medical delivered double-digit growth, both in terms of revenues and adjusted EBITDA. A compelling proof-point of our footprint in the market and our excellent product portfolio.”
CGM with excellent start into 2023
In the first three months of 2023 CGM delivered in several strategic areas and set the course for a successful year.
The ambulatory US business showed a compelling start into 2023. After the successful integration of the eMDs acquisition, the rollout of eMedix Clearinghouse to Aprima customers and the corresponding replacement of third-party providers is fully on track resulting in an organic growth rate above segment average. In Germany, the continued demand for e-billing modules in dental practices supported the revenue development.
In the hospital segment, the Hospital Future Act is an ongoing success story. Order intake related to the German governmental initiative for the modernization and digitization of hospitals reached more than EUR 110 million by the end of the first quarter after EUR 90 million at the end of 2022. Based on the great progress CGM again raised the revenue target relating to the Hospital Future Act to a range of EUR 110 million to EUR 130 million over the next years – A strong proof-point for the high market relevance of CGM’s product portfolio.
Another important milestone towards enabling the full digital patient journey in both inpatient and outpatient settings has been achieved. In April, CGM announced the acquisition of 51% of m.Doc GmbH which develops patient portals and digital applications for hospitals, rehabilitation and care facilities. With over 300 customers in the hospital sector, m.Doc’s product suite pushes CGM to one of the leading providers in the digital integration of patients into the treatment process in the hospital sector.
All segments delivered growth in the first quarter
Revenues in the Ambulatory Information Systems segment rose by 4% to EUR 125 million (previous year: EUR 120 million). Organically, revenues grew by 2% driven by a strong development in the US market and the rollout of additional modules in the German dental business. Recurring revenues amounted to 79% of segment revenues, representing 5% growth compared to the previous year, underlining the continued strength of the business model.
In the Hospital Information Systems segment, revenues increased by 10% to EUR 73 million (previous year: EUR 67 million) in the first quarter 2023. Strong project business in Germany, Poland and Spain led to an organic growth rate of 11%. Recurring revenues grew by 9% leading to a share of 70% compared to total revenues.
Another strong quarter has been recorded by the Consumer & Health Management Information Systems segment, where revenues increased by 63% to EUR 58 million (previous year: EUR 35 million), representing an organic growth of 37% compared to previous year’s quarter. Adjusted for TI, organic revenues grew 1%, impacted by macroeconomic headwinds in the pharma industry. Recurring revenues rose by 58% resulting in a share of recurring revenues of 46%.
Again, the Pharmacy Information Systems segment recorded a very good quarter. Revenue grew by 17% to EUR 35 million (previous year: EUR 30 million), partly driven by acquisition effects in Italy. The segment also showed an excellent organic growth of 11% mainly due to great business performance in Italy, based on high order backlog generated in Q4 2022. Recurring revenues in the PCS segment increased by 11%, resulting in a share of 66% compared to total revenues.
Free cash flow improved by 22% to EUR 79 million (previous year: EUR 65 million) and leverage reduced from 3.1x of adjusted EBITDA at the end of 2022 to 2.8x.
CGM is confirming its outlook for 2023 with group revenues to grow by around 5% organically. CGM expects an adjusted EBITDA in the range of EUR 260 million to EUR 300 million.
