VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CloudMD Software & Services Inc. (TSXV: DOC, OTCQB: DOCRF, Frankfurt: 6PH) (the “ Company ” or “ CloudMD ”), a healthcare technology company revolutionizing the delivery of care, is pleased to announce that it has closed the previously announced acquisition of Oncidium Inc. (“ Oncidium ”), one of Canada’s leading healthcare providers to employers. Oncidium has built a difficult-to-replicate ecosystem of over 500 clients servicing more than 2 million employees across Canada and more than 2,000 health care providers and medical assessors.
The acquisition of Oncidium enables CloudMD to evolve its ecosystem of healthcare services through occupational health, medical management and assessment services. COVID-19 has accelerated the need for employers to have robust health and safety solutions resulting in increased demand for new approaches in the workplace. The new capabilities will be a key component of the Company’s Enterprise Health Solutions (“ EHS ”) Division and provide Oncidium’s clients with access to our new connected healthcare platform. This transformative acquisition expands CloudMD’s national footprint to include 5,500 clients and over 5 million individual lives touched.
Since announcing the binding agreement, Oncidium acquired an organization specializing in independent medical evaluations and health-related services to employers and insurers. The strategic tuck-in is complementary to Oncidium and will provide immediate cost saving synergies through consolidation and integration. The business has also developed an award-winning technology platform that offers workflow management that will be used across CloudMD with our provider networks. The highly accretive business generated $17 million in revenue with positive earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (“ EBITDA ”) for the 12-month period ending April 2021.
“With over 25 years in the employer healthcare market, Oncidium is an ideal fit with the overall CloudMD strategy for the Enterprise Health Solutions Division,” said Luciano M. Barbuto, CEO of Oncidium , “ We are at a pivotal time where employers are dependent on their solution providers to support their workforce’s health and wellness issues, and to assist in providing leadership and guidance with respect to their ongoing, increasing healthcare costs.”
“ It is a time of rapid innovation and accelerated adoption of digital healthcare services by employers,” commented Karen Adams, President of CloudMD . “ At the core of our offering is that employers can choose to offer their employees a solution that encompasses medical management through health and safety, onsite medical management and navigation with a focus on cost-effective personalized care plans.”
The addition of Oncidium is immediately synergistic to CloudMD with cross-selling opportunities through a combined network of 5,500 loyal corporate clients and over 5 million covered lives. Oncidium is a rapidly growing business in the fastest growing segment of the Canadian healthcare industry, providing a significant competitive advantage compared to industry peers with a comprehensive platform, addressing whole-person healthcare through assessment, triage and support services across mental health, specialist care, healthcare navigation, short-term and long-term support, and educational resources.
The acquisition of Oncidium, which has an annualized revenue run rate of $54 million with an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 10%, is highly accretive to CloudMD. The acquisition also enables revenue and margin expansion for the Enterprise Health Solutions division 1 with an annualized revenue run rate of $70 million with a healthy gross margin of 38% and Adjusted EBITDA margin of 10%. On a consolidated basis, CloudMD has an annualized revenue run rate of approximately $140 million with overall gross margin of 35% and positive Adjusted EBITDA.
