SCWorx Announces Third Quarter 2019 Revenue Increased 74% over Third Quarter 2018

November 15, 2019

NEW YORK, Nov. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SCWorx Corp. (Nasdaq: WORX) (“SCWorx” or the “company”) announced today its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

“We continue to execute on our core business goals, reaching double-digit revenue growth driven by the addition of new customer contracts,” said Marc Schessel, CEO of SCWorx. “Our SaaS business model delivers three to five-year contracts, which provide revenue growth, stability, and tremendous visibility into our backlog and future revenue opportunities. It is our expectation that our team will continue to add new revenue each quarter due to our Ultraverse Platform™, which we believe to be one of the most robust data management platforms in the vast healthcare provider (hospital) marketplace.

“In addition to the growth that we have experienced with our existing platform sales during the first three quarters of 2019, we have recently announced the addition of our ScanWorx product and services offering. ScanWorx is the next evolution of our data management platform. ScanWorx allows our customers to “close the loop” between the electronic medical record system (“EMR”) item data with the supply chain (“ERP”) purchased item data in an automated fashion. This revolutionizes how hospitals solve their interoperability issues within the ERP, EMR and finance systems. We believe that ScanWorx can drive down the cost of billing, dramatically increase data accuracy as it populates the EMR for billing and patient outcome data, decrease manual intervention in this process, and decrease time to collections. We believe that 2020 will see solid growth in the sales of ScanWorx to our existing customer base as well as to new hospital groups as the market learns about it, substantially increasing the average annual revenue that we receive per client,” added Mr. Schessel.

Recent Corporate Developments

“During the first two quarters of 2019, SCWorx experienced higher than normal expenses related to the merger with Alliance MMA. The merger created extraordinary one-time legal and accounting fees as well as other one-time transitional expenses. Moving forward, SCWorx will be driving toward profits before stock compensation expenses. SCWorx has dramatically narrowed the window to profitability during the third quarter of 2019. We look forward to continued strong results in the near-term as well as the long-term,” said Mr. Schessel. “SCWorx has seen an increase in payroll during the first three quarters as it prepares for the deployment of the ScanWorx module. The company does not expect to make any significant employee additions in the near-term. We believe that the company is right-sized and prepared for the next stage of growth. The company’s net loss without stock compensation in the third quarter fell to $207,000.”

Revenue

Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2019 was $1,682,000, compared to revenue of $976,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2018, a 74% increase over the prior-year period. The increase in revenue is primarily related to the addition of new multi-year customer contracts and data consulting projects completed during the third quarter of 2019.
