MURRAY, Utah, Jan. 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- R1 RCM Inc. (NASDAQ: RCM) (“R1”), a leading provider of technology-driven solutions that transform the patient experience and financial performance of healthcare providers, today announced preliminary fourth quarter 2023 financial results. The Company expects to report its 2023 financial results on February 27, 2024.

2023 Fourth Quarter Preliminary PreviewR1 anticipates fourth quarter 2023 revenues of approximately $563 to $567 million based on its preliminary review, which represents an increase of approximately 6 to 6.5 percent compared to the prior year. Revenue in the quarter reflects continued double digit growth in modular revenue partially offset by delays in timing of certain new client transitions and implementations, as well as lower sequential incentive fees. Fourth quarter 2023 operating income is anticipated to be between $36 and $39 million, net loss between $8 and $10 million and adjusted EBITDA between $163 to $166 million, reflecting solid margin performance resulting from continued cost discipline. In addition, during the quarter the Company paid the remaining outstanding balance of $60 million on its revolver.

“Our preliminary fourth quarter results create the foundation for continued growth in 2024, including the contribution from the pending acquisition of Acclara and related 10-year agreement with Providence,” said Lee Rivas, chief executive officer of R1. “R1’s ability to meet customers at any stage in the revenue cycle will continue to support long-term growth while driving value for our customers, partners, and shareholders.”
