HMS Holdings Corp. Research Report

On November 8, 2013, HMS Holdings Corp. (HMS) reported Q3 2013 financial
results. The Company reported revenues of $127.8 million for the quarter, up
12.8% YoY. Net income and comprehensive income was at $11.5 million, or $0.13
per fully diluted share, for Q3 2013, compared with $10.5 million, or $0.12
per fully diluted share, in Q3 2012. Bill Lucia, CEO of HMS, said, "Our third
quarter results demonstrate a continued resumption of growth across our
products and markets as we and our clients prepare for full implementation of
the ACA in 2014. While this translates to year over year improvements in our
performance, it is clear that our full year growth will not be as strong as we
had anticipated. As a result, we are tightening 2013 revenue guidance to the
lower end of our original guidance of $495.0 to $525.0 million to a range of
$495.0 to $510.0 million. Due to lower than anticipated revenues and certain
one-time charges in the quarter, we are also revising fully diluted GAAP EPS
to $0.44-$0.51 from $0.57-$0.63 and adjusted EPS to $0.75- $0.82 from
$0.89-$0.95." The Full Research Report on HMS Holdings Corp. - including full
