Progyny, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2023 Results

Record Quarterly Revenue of $280.9 Million, Reflecting 37% Growth Over the Prior Year Period
Raises Full Year Revenue and Earnings Guidance
Strong Sales Season Produces 1.3 Million New Covered Lives

NEW YORK, Nov. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Progyny, Inc. (NASDAQ:PGNY) ("Progyny" or the "Company"), a leading benefits management company specializing in fertility and family building benefits solutions, today announced its financial results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2023 ("the third quarter of 2023") as compared to the three-month period ended September 30, 2022 ("the third quarter of 2022" or "the prior year period").

"We're pleased with our third quarter financial performance, highlighted by record quarterly revenue that continues to reflect healthy levels of utilization as well as solid growth in both profitability and cash flow, in addition to another strong sales and renewal season, which resulted in over 85 new client commitments that are expected to add 1.3 million new covered lives, and a near 100% retention rate for the eighth straight year. This includes our first population of approximately 300,000 covered lives under a federal government plan. While we modified our services to align with the government plan design, which will yield a lower contribution from this population for 2024, we are excited about the future potential that this early win represents," said Pete Anevski, Chief Executive Officer of Progyny. "We believe these results demonstrate that Progyny continues to be the provider of choice for fertility and family building solutions among the world's leading brands."

"During the third quarter, revenue grew 37%, while Adjusted EBITDA increased 43% as our margins continued to expand, highlighting our ability to rapidly and effectively scale our operations to serve both our members and the nation's largest employers, even as we continue to enhance our solution and achieve exceptional client satisfaction," said Mark Livingston, Progyny's Chief Financial Officer.

  1. Net income per diluted share reflects weighted-average shares outstanding as adjusted for potential dilutive securities, including options, restricted stock units, warrants to purchase common stock, and shares issuable under the employee stock purchase program.
  2. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are financial measures that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Please see Annex A of this press release for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable financial measure stated in accordance with GAAP for each of the periods presented. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue.

Financial Highlights
Revenue was $280.9 million, a 37% increase as compared to the $205.4 million reported in the third quarter of 2022, primarily as a result of the increase in our number of clients and covered lives.

  • Fertility benefit services revenue was $175.1 million, a 35% increase from the $129.3 million reported in the third quarter of 2022.
  • Pharmacy benefit services revenue was $105.8 million, a 39% increase from the $76.1 million reported in the third quarter of 2022.

Gross profit was $62.6 million, an increase of 36% from the $46.0 million reported in the third quarter of 2022, primarily due to the higher revenue. Gross margin was 22.3%, comparable to the prior year period.

Net income was $15.9 million, or $0.16 income per diluted share, an increase of 20% as compared to $13.2 million, or $0.13 income per diluted share, reported in the third quarter of 2022. The higher net income was due primarily to the higher gross profit and operating efficiencies realized on our higher revenues, which more than offset higher non-cash stock-based compensation expense and a higher provision for income taxes.

Adjusted EBITDA was $50.0 million, an increase of 43%, from the $35.0 million reported in the third quarter of 2022, reflecting the higher gross profit and operating efficiencies realized on our higher revenues. Adjusted EBITDA margin was 17.8%, an increase of 80 basis points from the 17.0% Adjusted EBITDA margin in the third quarter of 2022.

Cash Flow
Net cash generated by operating activities for the third quarter of 2023 was $54.2 million, compared to $20.9 million in the prior year period. The improvement in cash flow reflects the higher profitability, as well as the timing impact of certain working capital items in both periods.

Balance Sheet and Financial Position
As of September 30, 2023, the Company had total working capital of approximately $417.9 million and no debt. This included cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities of $335.6 million, an increase of $53.1 million from the balances as of June 30, 2023.

Key Metrics
The Company had 392 clients as of September 30, 2023, as compared to 282 clients as of September 30, 2022.

  Three Months Ended September 30,   Nine Months Ended September 30,
  2023   2022   2023   2022
ART Cycles* 15,005   11,086   42,947   30,402
Utilization – All Members** 0.56%   0.49%   1.11%   1.00%
Utilization – Female Only** 0.49%   0.44%   0.93%   0.85%
Average Members 5,428,000   4,482,000   5,366,000   4,301,000

* Represents the number of ART cycles performed, including IVF with a fresh embryo transfer, IVF freeze all cycles/embryo banking, frozen embryo transfers, and egg freezing.
** Represents the member utilization rate for all services, including, but not limited to, ART cycles, initial consultations, IUIs, and genetic testing. The utilization rate for all members includes all unique members (female and male) who utilize the benefit during that period, while the utilization rate for female only includes only unique females who utilize the benefit during that period. For purposes of calculating utilization rates in any given period, the results reflect the number of unique members utilizing the benefit for that period. Individual periods cannot be combined as member treatments may span multiple periods.

Financial Outlook
The majority of the clients added in the most recent selling season are expected to go live in the first quarter of 2024, though a number of clients have already launched the benefit and are reflected in the clients and covered lives reported as of September 30, 2023. Once all new clients are live in 2024, the company anticipates having more than 460 clients, representing an estimated 6.7 million covered lives, which compares to the 370 clients and 5.4 million covered lives that were under commitment as of the start of 2023.

"With the strong results over the first nine months of the year, as well as our current expectations for member engagement, including the impact of the new clients who have already launched, we are raising our guidance for the year," said Mr. Anevski. "Consistent with our past practice, we will provide financial guidance for 2024 when we report our year end results in February, by which time we'll have insight into the utilization from the clients launching on January 1, 2024. Given the results of the sales and renewal season we just completed, we are entering 2024 well positioned to deliver another strong year of growth."

The Company is providing the following financial guidance for both the full year and three-month period ending December 31, 2023:

  • Full Year 2023 Outlook:
    • Revenue is now projected to be $1,087 million to $1,095 million, reflecting growth of 38% to 39%
    • Net income is projected to be $58.3 million to $60.0 million, or $0.58 to $0.59 per diluted share, on the basis of approximately 101 million assumed weighted-average fully diluted-shares outstanding
    • Adjusted EBITDA1 is projected to be $186.0 million to $188.5 million
  • Fourth Quarter of 2023 Outlook:
    • Revenue is projected to be $268.3 million to $276.3 million, reflecting growth of 25% to 29%
    • Net income is projected to be $9.7 million to $11.4 million, or $0.10 to $0.11 per diluted share, on the basis of approximately 102 million assumed weighted-average fully diluted-shares outstanding
    • Adjusted EBITDA1 is projected to be $42.2 million to $44.7 million

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to disclosing financial measures prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), this press release and the accompanying tables include the non-GAAP financial measures Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, and Adjusted EBITDA margin on incremental revenue.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted EBITDA margin on incremental revenue are supplemental financial measures that are not required by, or presented in accordance with, GAAP. We believe that these non-GAAP measures, when taken together with our GAAP financial results, provides meaningful supplemental information regarding our operating performance and facilitates internal comparisons of our historical operating performance on a more consistent basis by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our business, results of operations or outlook. In particular, we believe that the use of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted EBITDA margin on incremental revenue are helpful to our investors as they are measures used by management in assessing the health of our business, determining incentive compensation, evaluating our operating performance, and for internal planning and forecasting purposes.

Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted EBITDA margin on incremental revenue are presented for supplemental informational purposes only, have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with GAAP. Some of the limitations of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted EBITDA margin on incremental revenue include: (1) it does not properly reflect capital commitments to be paid in the future; (2) although depreciation and amortization are non-cash charges, the underlying assets may need to be replaced and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect these capital expenditures; (3) it does not consider the impact of stock-based compensation expense; (4) it does not reflect other non-operating income and expenses, including other (income) expense, net and interest (income) expense, net; (5) it does not reflect tax payments that may represent a reduction in cash available to us. In addition, our non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies because they may not calculate such measures in the same manner as we calculate these measures, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, when evaluating our performance, you should consider Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin and Adjusted EBITDA margin on incremental revenue alongside other financial performance measures, including our net income, gross margin, and our other GAAP results.

We calculate Adjusted EBITDA as net income, adjusted to exclude depreciation and amortization; stock-based compensation expense; other income, net; interest income, net; and provision (benefit) for income taxes. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA margin as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue. We calculate Adjusted EBITDA margin on incremental revenue as incremental Adjusted EBITDA in 2023 divided by incremental revenue in 2023. Please see Annex A: "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" elsewhere in this press release.
