SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 16, 2016—Deloitte today released the 2016 Technology Fast 500, an annual ranking of the fastest growing North American companies in the technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, and energy tech sectors. Loot Crate claimed the top spot with a growth rate of 66,661 percent from 2012 to 2015.

Based in Los Angeles, Loot Crate delivers monthly curated mystery boxes of entertainment and pop culture themed collectibles to fans. Founded in 2012, Loot Crate has more than 650,000 subscribers worldwide in 35 countries. Loot Crate’s position at the top of this year’s list showcases how innovation isn’t always about new technology and invention, but also about ingenuity, the recombining of existing assets, and know-how in new ways to maximize value.

Awardees are selected for this honor based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2012 to 2015. Overall, 2016 Technology Fast 500 companies achieved revenue growth ranging from 121 percent to 66,661 percent in the 2012 to 2015 time frame, with a median growth of 290 percent.

“Our personal and professional lives are shifting in response to new technologies and business models that are changing the way we work and live,” said Sandra Shirai, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and US Technology, Media, and Telecommunications leader. “The 2016 Technology Fast 500 winners are supporting this shift by creating experiences for their customers, surpassing expected possibilities, and helping to envision even more effective and ingenious solutions. Loot Crate is just one example of how effective organizations face disruption with confidence, striving to understand and harness the potential to propel forward. That means taking risks, encouraging experimentation, and embracing transformation.”

“Being recognized by Deloitte as the fastest growing technology company on the Fast 500 List is an incredible honor,” said Chris Davis, CEO and co-founder of Loot Crate. “Our desire to curate unique experiences for our customers through our shared passion for pop culture, games, and entertainment brands gives our fan commerce business a sense of purpose as we scale and makes coming to work a lot of fun.”

“Investors continue to remain confident in North American technology companies. Companies that enhance efficiencies through new technologies, enter new markets, and develop new products and business models are the ones who sustain fundraising and will provide a significant return on investment. These are the rising stars,” said Jim Atwell, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP, and national managing partner of the Emerging Growth Company practice. “The industry understands that while innovation entails taking risks, the absence of innovation is riskier. This is something the Technology Fast 500 winners recognize as they continue to grow and move their companies forward.”

Tabula Rasa HealthCare Announces Third Quarter 2016 Operating Results

MOORESTOWN, N.J., Nov 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) —

Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc. (“TRHC”) TRHC, +4.66% a leader in providing patient-specific, data-driven technology and solutions that enable healthcare organizations to optimize medication regimens to improve patient outcomes, reduce hospitalizations, lower healthcare costs and manage risk, today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

TRHC Chairman and CEO, Calvin H. Knowlton, Ph.D., commented, “I’m pleased with our performance during our first publically reported quarter. We continue to win new business within our core market, PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, a Medicare Advantage-type plan), as well as successfully expand our Medication Risk Mitigation platform into adjacent markets with other types of health plans, further proving its scalability.”

Dr. Knowlton continued, “There is significant runway ahead of us as we continue to develop and evolve our proprietary Medication Risk Mitigation platform and address larger patient populations with our goal of improving outcomes and lowering healthcare cost.”

Financial Performance for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2016

All comparisons, unless otherwise noted, are to the three months ended September 30, 2015.

  • Total revenue was $24.2 million, an increase of 35%. Total revenue included product revenue of $20.7 million, an increase of 35%, and service revenue of $3.4 million, an increase of 34%.
  • Gross margin was 29%, compared to 32%. The year over year decline is primarily related to a mix shift in client and business make-up, as well as to staffing increases associated with upcoming contracts.
  • Net loss was $142 thousand, compared to a net loss of $3.3 million. Third quarter 2016 included a $1.4 million expense related to the early extinguishment of debt.
  • Net loss per diluted share was $0.08, compared to a net loss per share of $3.21. The net loss per share calculations were based on a diluted share count of 10.3 million for the third quarter of 2016, compared to 4.4 million shares a year ago.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA was $3.3 million, compared to $2.4 million, an increase of 38% compared to a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA margin of 13.5% in the third quarter of 2016 compared favorably to 13.2% during the same period in 2015.
  • Non-GAAP Adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.06, compared to a net loss per share of $0.01.

A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results has been provided in this press release in the accompanying tables. Non-GAAP results exclude change in fair value of warrant liability, loss on extinguishment of debt, change in fair value of acquisition-related contingent consideration (income) expense and stock-based compensation expense. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”.

Business Outlook

Fourth Quarter 2016 Guidance: Revenue for TRHC’s fourth quarter 2016 is expected to be in the range of $25 million to $26 million. Net loss is expected to be in the range of $6 million to $7 million. Net loss projections include approximately $5 million of expense related to the extinguishment of debt associated with the early repayment of a credit facility in connection with TRHC’s initial public offering, as well as stock based compensation expense of approximately $3.5 million related to restricted stock grants and shares issued in connection with the initial public offering. Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $3.5 million to $4.0 million.

Full Year 2016 Guidance: Revenue for fiscal year 2016 is expected to be in the range of $92 million to $93 million. Net loss is expected to be in the range of $6 million to $7 million. Net loss projections include approximately $6.4 million of expense related to the extinguishment of debt, as well as stock based compensation expense of approximately $3.6 million related to restricted stock grants and shares issued in connection with the initial public offering.  Adjusted EBITDA is expected to be in the range of $12.5 million to $13.0 million.

TRHC has not provided a reconciliation of projected GAAP Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA guidance because estimates of certain reconciling items cannot be provided without unreasonable effort. Our Adjusted EBITDA guidance for the year ending December 31, 2016, assumes anticipated losses of $6.4 million related to the extinguishment of debt, income of $0.6 million related to the remeasurement of our warrant liability, projected stock compensation of $4.2 million, projected depreciation and amortization charges of $5.1 million and interest expense of $4.5 million. In addition, we assume $0.4 million of income tax expense related to indefinite-lived deferred tax liabilities for goodwill amortization. We cannot provide a reliable forward-looking estimate of certain other reconciling items because they are either event-driven or difficult to quantify without unreasonable effort, in particular the revaluation of our contingent consideration.

Natural Insight has been a long time innovator in delivering HTML5 and BYOD-friendly mobile productivity solutions that work seamlessly on any browser and any device.  Now, with the introduction of WorkTrak, Natural Insight is extending its HTML5 innovation to include a native application experience for workers equipped with Android and iOS devices.

Architecture Summary:

WorkTrak extends and enhances Natural Insight’s existing web architecture by delivering a native wrapper experience that presents the user with identical capabilities otherwise available in a web browser experience.  Therefore, the end-user experience is familiar and comfortable, and yet it harnesses the power of the device-side services to enhance off-line functionality and large volume photo capture.

Native Features:

  • Enhanced media handling
  • No limits on media size capture and upload
  • Access to native camera functionality (editing, cropping, rotating)
  • Validate device location at defined intervals during active shifts
  • Configurable by project, and integrated into exception reporting
