First Quarter 2024 and Recent Operating Highlights

  • Total enrolled members in our WholeHealth+ program numbered 1,521 at the end of Q1 2024, compared to 1,758 at the end of Q4 2023 and 1,526 at the end of Q1 2023.
  • The Company's effective outreach pool was 5,057 at March 31, 2024 compared to 2,161 at December 31, 2023.
  • In May 2024, the Company announced that the Florida Agency for Healthcare Administration approved Ontrak Health as a subcontractor for a prominent regional Medicaid health plan for our Wholehealth+, Ontrak Engage and Ontrak Access solutions. The Company expects to initiate outreach to new eligible members of the new health plan customer in the next 30 to 60 days and that the Company's overall outreach pool of eligible members for our Wholehealth+ program is expected to grow by upwards of 10% with the addition of these new eligible members.
  • In March 2024, the Company and Acuitas Capital entered into a Sixth Amendment to the Master Note Purchase Agreement, as amended (the "Sixth Amendment"). In accordance with the Sixth Amendment, on April 5, 2024 and May 8, 2024, the Company issued and sold to Acuitas Capital, and Acuitas Capital purchased from the Company, senior secured convertible promissory notes, each with a principal amount of $1.5 million (the first note the "Initial Demand Note" and the second note the "Demand Note," and together the "Demand Notes"), and in Acuitas Capital’s sole discretion, Acuitas Capital may purchase from the Company, and the Company will issue and sell to Acuitas, up to an additional $12.0 million in principal amount of Demand Notes. In connection with each Demand Note purchased by Acuitas from the Company (including the Initial Demand Note), subject to stockholder approval effective date occurring, the Company will issue to Acuitas (or an entity affiliated with Acuitas, as designated by Acuitas) a warrant (“Demand Warrant”), to purchase such number of shares of the Company’s common stock that results in 200% warrant coverage. Each Demand Warrant will have a term of five (5) years. The initial exercise price of each Demand Warrant will be (a) in the case of the Demand Warrant issued in connection with the Initial Demand Note and in respect of the next $3.0 million of principal amount of Demand Notes purchased by Acuitas, the lesser of (i) $0.3442 (after giving effect to the reduction of the exercise price of the Public Offering Warrants and Private Placement Warrant (collectively, the “November 2023 Warrants”) that occurred on April 5, 2024) and (ii) the greater of (1) the consolidated closing bid price of the Company’s common stock as reported on The Nasdaq Stock Market or such other exchange on which the Company’s common stock is listed (the “Exchange”) immediately preceding the time the applicable Demand Note is deemed issued by the Company and (2) $0.12, and (b) in the case of the Demand Warrants issued in connection with any subsequent Demand Notes, the consolidated closing bid price of the Company’s common stock as reported on the Exchange immediately preceding the time the applicable Demand Note is deemed issued by the Company, which initial exercise price will, in each case of clauses (a) and (b) above, be subject to further adjustment in accordance with the terms of the Demand Warrant and the Sixth Amendment.
  • From January 1, 2024 through the date of this report, the Company received a total of $2.0 million of cash proceeds from the exercise of Public Offering Warrants by certain holders thereof for a total of 9,499,062 shares of the Company's common stock.
  • On February 29, 2024, the Company announced the expansion of Ontrak's WholeHealth+ program to a larger commercial population with a health plan customer, one of the largest health systems in the U.S. Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. On March 12, 2024, the Company announced a continuing expansion of its strategic partnership with the same health plan customer to offer its program to eligible self-insured groups. The expanded partnership initially represents more than 6.5 times increase in the number of this customer's members who are eligible for the Ontrak WholeHealth+ program.
  • In February 2024, the Company announced the introduction of Recovering Quality of Life Assessment (ReQoL) into its cutting-edge WholeHealth+ Product and Solutions Suite. ReQoL assessments can be used in healthcare and research settings to evaluate the impact of mental health conditions, psychological interventions, and healthcare interventions on patients' lives because they focus on understanding the person over the diagnosis, consistent with recovery strategies.

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, 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, 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.
