DRAPER, Utah, Sept. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HealthEquity, Inc. (NASDAQ: HQY) ("HealthEquity" or the "Company"), the nation's largest health savings account ("HSA") non-bank custodian, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended July 31, 2019.

“We believe that HealthEquity’s results in the second quarter and the speedy close of the WageWorks acquisition position us for a strong second half selling season,” said Jon Kessler, HealthEquity’s President and CEO. “HealthEquity’s more than 215,000 new HSAs and $400 million in custodial asset growth in the first half provides the team the opportunity to once again outpace HSA market growth this year. HealthEquity’s unique combined offering of HSAs and consumer-directed benefits will enable us to continue building our leading HSA market position.”

Second quarter financial results

For the second quarter ended July 31, 2019, HealthEquity reported revenue of $86.6 million, an increase of 22% compared to $71.1 million for the second quarter ended July 31, 2018. Revenue consisted of:

  • Service revenue of $26.3 million, an increase of 5% compared to Q2 FY19.
  • Custodial revenue of $43.6 million, an increase of 42% compared to Q2 FY19.
  • Interchange revenue of $16.7 million, an increase of 8% compared to Q2 FY19.

Net income was $19.4 million for the second quarter ended July 31, 2019, compared to $22.5 million for the second quarter ended July 31, 2018.

Net income per diluted share was $0.30 for the second quarter ended July 31, 2019, compared to $0.36 for the second quarter ended July 31, 2018.

Non-GAAP net income per diluted share was $0.45 for the second quarter ended July 31, 2019, compared to $0.36 for the second quarter ended July 31, 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA was $40.6 million for the second quarter ended July 31, 2019, an increase of 28% compared to $31.8 million for the second quarter ended July 31, 2018. Adjusted EBITDA was 47% of revenue for the second quarter ended July 31, 2019, compared to 45% for the second quarter ended July 31, 2018.

As of July 31, 2019, we had $815.2 million of cash and cash equivalents and no outstanding debt. This compares to $361.5 million in cash and cash equivalents and no outstanding debt as of January 31, 2019.

HSA Member and Custodial Asset metrics

The total number of HSAs for which we serve as a non-bank custodian ("HSA Members") as of July 31, 2019 was 4.2 million, an increase of 16% from 3.6 million as of July 31, 2018.  Total Active HSA Members as of July 31, 2019 was 3.3 million, an increase of 13% from 2.9 million as of July 31, 2018.

  • Custodial Investment Assets of $2.1 billion, an increase of 38% compared to July 31, 2018.

Business outlook

We have updated the HealthEquity standalone outlook for the year ending January 31, 2020. We expect our revenue to be between $341 million and $347 million. Our outlook for net income is a range of $9 million to $13 million, resulting in a net income per diluted share range of $0.13 to $0.19. Our Adjusted EBITDA outlook is a range of $138 million to $142 million. We define Adjusted EBITDA as adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, integration and acquisition-related costs, unrealized gains and losses on marketable equity securities, and other certain non-operating items. We also expect our non-GAAP net income to be in a range between $76 million and $80 million. Our non-GAAP net income is calculated by adding back to net income amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, and integration and acquisition-related costs, net of an estimated statutory tax rate of 24%, subtracting the excess tax benefits due to the adoption of Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2016-09, and adjusting for unrealized gains and losses on marketable equity securities, net of an estimated statutory tax rate of 24%. Our non-GAAP net income outlook results in a non-GAAP net income per diluted share range between $1.10 to $1.16 (based on an estimated 69 million weighted-average shares outstanding).

Regarding the WageWorks acquisition, which closed August 30, 2019, we will include WageWorks' operating results for the five months from September through January 2020. In addition to our outlook for the HealthEquity standalone business above, we expect WageWorks revenue for the five months to be between $170 and $175 million.

A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this release to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is included with the financial tables at the end of this release.

Conference call

HealthEquity management will host a conference call at 5:00 pm (Eastern Time) on Tuesday, September 3, 2019 to discuss the fiscal second quarter 2020 financial results. The conference call will be accessible by dialing 844-791-6252, or 661-378-9636 for international callers, and referencing conference ID 5799847. A live audio webcast of the call will also be available on the investor relations section of our website at http://ir.healthequity.com.

Non-GAAP financial Information

To supplement our financial information presented on a GAAP basis, we disclose non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, non-GAAP net income, and non-GAAP net income per diluted share.

  • Adjusted EBITDA is adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, integration and acquisition-related costs, unrealized gains and losses on marketable equity securities, and other certain non-operating items.
  • Non-GAAP net income is calculated by adding back to GAAP net income amortization of acquired intangible assets, stock-based compensation expense, and integration and acquisition-related costs, net of an estimated statutory tax rate, subtracting the excess tax benefits due to the adoption of ASU 2016-09, and adjusting for unrealized gains and losses on marketable equity securities, net of an estimated statutory tax rate.
  • Non-GAAP net income per diluted share is calculated by dividing non-GAAP net income by diluted weighted-average shares outstanding.

Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, GAAP results. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures of financial results provide useful information to management and investors regarding certain financial and business trends relating to the Company's financial condition and results of operations. The Company cautions investors that non-GAAP financial information, by its nature, departs from GAAP; accordingly, its use can make it difficult to compare current results with results from other reporting periods and with the results of other companies. Whenever we use these non-GAAP financial measures, we provide a reconciliation of the applicable non-GAAP financial measure to the most closely applicable GAAP financial measure. Investors are encouraged to review the related GAAP financial measures and the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measure as detailed in the tables below.
