First Quarter 2023 Results

Management Commentary

Brad Hively, CEO of TOI, commented, "We started the year off strong, with 38% topline growth during the quarter, continuing our positive momentum from the fourth quarter. It was a record setting quarter for Fee-For-Service revenue, Dispensary revenue, Oral drugs dispensed and organic growth, as we made meaningful progress towards refining and optimizing our model in expansion markets, most notably with our organic growth in Florida. Furthermore, the growth in our Dispensary business was driven by our existing dispensaries, supported by our scale in Florida. We are very proud of this growth as it demonstrates extremely strong demand of our model from both patients and payors."

Outlook for Fiscal Year 2023

TOI uses Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP metric, as an additional tool to assess its operational performance. See "Financial Information: Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below. In reliance on the unreasonable efforts exception for forward-looking information provided under Regulation S-K, TOI is not reasonably able to provide a quantitative reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net (loss) income, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, without unreasonable efforts due to uncertainties regarding taxes, share-based compensation, goodwill impairment charges, change in fair value of liabilities, unrealized (gains) losses on investments, practice acquisition-related costs, consulting and legal fees, transaction costs and other non-cash items. The variability of these items could have an unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on TOI’s future GAAP financial results. TOI expects interest expense in the range of $4 million to $5 million, other adjustment add backs in the range of $2 million to $4 million, and depreciation and amortization in the range of $4 million to $6 million. TOI is not adding back new clinic startup or acquisition costs for this non-GAAP metric.

2023 Guidance
Revenue$290 to $320 million, representing approximately 15% to 27% growth over 2022 revenue
Gross Profit$60 to $70 million
Adjusted EBITDA$(25) to $(28) million
Value-based lives(1)1.75 million to 2.0 million lives

(1)  Represents lives under capitation contracts.

TOI's achievement of the anticipated results is subject to risks and uncertainties, including those disclosed in its filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The outlook does not take into account the impact of any unanticipated developments in the business or changes in the operating environment, nor does it take into account the impact of TOI's acquisitions, dispositions or financings during 2023. TOI's outlook assumes a largely reopened global market, which would be negatively impacted if closures or other restrictive measures persist or are reimplemented.

First Quarter 2023 Results

Consolidated revenue for Q1 2023 was $76 million, an increase of 38.1% compared to Q1 2022, and a 6.7% increase compared to Q4 2022.

Revenue for patient services was $50 million, up 43.4% compared to Q1 2022. Growth in patient services revenue was driven by an increase in fee-for-service ("FFS") revenue due to practice acquisitions and an overall increase in clinic count. Dispensary revenue increased 29.8% compared to Q1 2022 due to an increase in the number of filled prescriptions, offset by a slight decrease in the average revenue per filled prescription. Clinical trials & other revenue increased by 17.8% compared to Q1 2022 primarily due to an increase in California Proposition 56 revenue and TOI Clinical Research revenue.

Gross profit in Q1 2023 was $14 million, an increase of 14.4% compared to Q1 2022. The increase was primarily driven by improved cost management of oral and IV drugs and enhanced rebate opportunities. Gross profit is calculated by subtracting direct costs of patient services, dispensary, and clinical trials and other from consolidated revenues.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses in Q1 2023 were $29 million or 37.8% of revenue, compared with $30 million, or 54.0% of revenue, in Q1 2022. During Q1 2023, share-based compensation expense was $5 million. The remainder of the increase in SG&A expenses was due to headcount and other costs associated with operating as a public company and supporting revenue growth and expansion into new markets.

Net loss for Q1 2023 was $30.0 million, a decrease of $49 million in income compared to Q1 2022 primarily due to a $38.7 million decrease in the change in fair value of earnout liabilities, as well as a goodwill impairment charge of $16.9 million in Q1 2023 that did not occur in Q1 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA was $(7.9) million, a decrease of $2.7 million compared to Q1 2022, primarily as a result of a decrease in the change in fair value of liabilities and unrealized gains on investments in Q1 2023 that did not occur the same quarter prior year.

Financial Information; Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Some of the financial information and data contained in this press release, such as Adjusted EBITDA, have not been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). TOI believes that the use of Adjusted EBITDA provides an additional tool to assess operational performance and trends in, and in comparing our financial measures with, other similar companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures to investors. TOI’s non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The presentation of non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP. The principal limitation of Adjusted EBITDA is that it excludes significant expenses and income that are required by GAAP to be recorded in TOI's financial statements. Because of the limitations of non-GAAP financial measures, you should consider the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release in conjunction with TOI’s financial statements and the related notes thereto.

TOI defines Adjusted EBITDA as net (loss) income plus depreciation, amortization, net interest expense, income taxes, non-cash addbacks, share-based compensation, goodwill impairment charges, changes in fair value of liabilities, unrealized gains or losses on investments and other adjustments to add-back the following: consulting and legal fees related to acquisitions, deferred consideration payment for practice acquisition, one-time consulting and legal fees related to certain advisory projects, software implementations and debt or equity financings, severance expense and temporary labor and recruiting charges to build out our corporate infrastructure. A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net (loss) income, the most comparable GAAP metric, is set forth below.
