10/19/2005 5:09:08 PM

RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., Aug. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- VantageMed Corporation today announced financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2005. Total revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2005 were $3.9 million, down 11.3%, or $493,000, from the prior quarter and down 37.0%, or $2.3 million, from the year ago quarter ended June 30, 2004. Total revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2005 were $8.2 million, down 26.6%, or $3.0 million, from the six months ended June 30, 2004.

Revenue from discontinued legacy products was $295,000 in the second quarter of 2005, down from $1.6 million in the year ago quarter. Revenues from the RidgeMark product line, the replacement product line for the legacy products, were $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2005, down from $2.1 million in the year ago quarter, as the migration process concluded. The resources once committed to the support of discontinued legacy products and the migration process were reduced significantly in June and July 2005. The full effect of these cost reductions will be visible in future quarters. Company staffing levels were reduced from 174 at March 31, 2005 to 154 at July 31, 2005.

VantageMed reported a net loss of ($1.7) million, or ($0.12) per share, in the second quarter of 2005, compared to a loss of ($1.2) million, or ($0.13) per share, for the prior quarter and compared to a net loss of ($28,000), or ($0.00) per share, for the year ago quarter. Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2005 was ($2.9) million, or ($0.21) per share compared to a net loss of net loss of ($734,000), or ($0.09) per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2004. As of June 30, 2005, we had cash and short term investments totaling $2.2 million.

Management Commentary

Steve Curd, VantageMed's CEO, commented, "With this quarter, we have put behind us the product migration initiatives associated with our legacy technology systems. Although it was a necessary process, it forced us to focus heavily on selling low margin migrations instead of selling higher margin systems to new customers. We are now able to focus on higher margin product lines while continuing to improve customer satisfaction.

"For example, we released a new version of the Northern Health Anesthesia product and are seeing expansion of our roughly 10% market share in this segment. Also, later this quarter we will begin selling an expanded version of our Helper product line. This new version will allow us to sell an entry level solution to a much larger medical provider segment. Finally, we are launching a value added reseller program to better leverage our internal sales efforts.

"We plan to eliminate our cash flow losses as we align RidgeMark costs with the associated revenue. Our plan remains to exit 2005 as a profitable, debt-free company with strong growth opportunities."
