Second Quarter 2023 and Recent Operating Highlights

  • In July 2023, the Company entered into an agreement with a regional Medicaid health plan for our WholeHealth+ and Ontrak Engage solutions. The agreement is pending state approval and is expected to launch in the fourth quarter of 2023. Total enrolled members in our WholeHealth+ program numbered 1,889 at the end of Q2 2023, compared to 1,526 at the end of Q1 2023 and 2,094 at the end of Q2 2022. On June 23, 2023, the Company and Acuitas Capital, LLC (“Acuitas”), an entity indirectly wholly owned and controlled by Terren S. Peizer, the Company’s largest stockholder and former Chief Executive Officer and Chairman, entered into a Fourth Amendment to the Master Note Purchase Agreement entered into between the Company and Acuitas in April 2022 (the "Fourth Amendment," and as amended to date, the “Keep Well Agreement”), pursuant to which, among other things: a) the Funding Structure was changed to provide the terms for the remaining $6.0 million to be funded thereunder as follows: $4.0 million was to be funded on June 1, 2023 and $2.0 million was to be funded on September 1, 2023. Under the Fourth Amendment, in lieu of the $6.0 million being funded as described above, Acuitas agreed to deliver to the Company for deposit by the Company into a segregated account established by the Company (the proceeds so deposited, the “Escrowed Funds” and the account into which the proceeds are so deposited, the “Escrow Account”): (i) $4.0 million on June 23, 2023 (deposit received by Company on June 26, 2023); and (ii) $2.0 million on September 1, 2023; and b) the maturity date of the Keep Well Notes was extended from June 30, 2024 to September 30, 2024.
  • On July 27, 2023 (the “Effective Date”), the Company filed a certificate of amendment to its amended and restated certificate of incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware implementing a reverse split at ratio of 1:6. Any fractional share of our common stock resulting from the reverse split was automatically rounded up to the nearest whole share. The Company's common stock began trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market on a post-split basis at the open of trading on July 28, 2023, and continues to trade under the symbol “OTRK,” but has been assigned a new CUSIP number (683373302).
  • The Company announced a breakthrough increase in behavioral health diagnosis, with 42% of members diagnosed with Substance Use Disorder, 27% of members diagnosed with Depression, 27% of members diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, 21% of members diagnosed with Anxiety and 20% of members diagnosed with Schizophrenia did not have their respective diagnosis prior to enrollment in Ontrak’s WholeHealth+ program.
  • The Company achieved certification as a CVO by the NCQA for the element of license to practice. This certification further validates Ontrak's commitment to maintaining the highest standards of quality and compliance in its suite of health care solutions, enabling its customers and prospects to effectively meet their accreditation goals.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, the Company has provided in this press release and the quarterly conference call held on the date hereof certain non-GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures presented include EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP net loss, and Non-GAAP net loss per common share, which are not U.S. GAAP financial measures. We believe that the presentation of these financial measures enhances an investor’s understanding of our financial performance. We further believe that these financial measures are useful financial metrics to assess our operating performance from period-to-period by excluding certain items that we believe are not representative of our core business.

EBITDA consists of net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses. Adjusted EBITDA consists of net loss before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, stock-based compensation, write-off of debt issuance costs, restructuring, severance and related costs, gain on termination of operating lease, and gain/loss on change in fair value of warrant liability. We believe that making such adjustments provides investors meaningful information to understand our results of operations and the ability to analyze our financial and business trends on a period-to-period basis.

Non-GAAP net loss consists of net loss adjusted for stock-based compensation, write-off of debt issuance costs, restructuring, severance and related costs, gain on termination of operating lease and gain/loss on change in fair value of warrant liability. Non-GAAP net loss per common share consists of loss per share adjusted for non-GAAP net loss attributable to common stockholders. We believe that making such adjustments provides investors meaningful information to understand our results of operations and the ability to analyze our financial and business trends on a period-to-period basis.

We believe the above non-GAAP financial measures are commonly used by investors to evaluate our performance and that of our competitors. However, our use of the term EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP net loss and Non-GAAP net loss per common share may vary from that of others in our industry. None of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Non-GAAP net loss or Non-GAAP net loss per common share should be considered as an alternative to net loss before taxes, net loss, net loss per common share or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP as measures of performance.

See the Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures table at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of the Non-GAAP financial measures to U.S. GAAP financial measures.
