NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Emdeon Inc., a leading provider of healthcare revenue and payment cycle management and clinical information exchange solutions, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012 as summarized below:

"We are pleased with our operating results for the second quarter," said George Lazenby, Emdeon's chief executive officer. "Our second quarter results reflect strong financial performance across our business, especially in pharmacy services. We also are encouraged by the integration progress of our most recent acquisition, TC3 Health, in the payment integrity space."

Second quarter revenue was $294.5 million, an increase of 4.4%, compared to $282.1 for the same period in 2011. Second quarter revenue was reduced by $1.6 million due to acquisition method adjustments related to the acquisition of the Company by Blackstone, which occurred in the fourth quarter of 2011 (the "2011 Transaction").

Net loss for the second quarter of 2012 was $35.4 million compared to net income of $9.2 million for the same period in 2011. This loss was primarily due to increased interest and other expenses associated with the 2011 Transaction, which more than offset the impact of business growth as compared to the prior year period.

Second quarter Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA grew 7.2% to $80.1 million, or 27.2% of revenue, from Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $74.7 million, or 26.5% of revenue, for the comparable period in 2011.

A reconciliation of Emdeon's financial results determined in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) to certain non-GAAP financial measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included in this release to supplement its unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis. An explanation of these non-GAAP measures is also included below under the heading "Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."
