Authentidate Holding Corp. Reports Record First Quarter Revenues

Authentidate Holding Corp. Reports Record First Quarter Revenues

Strength in Telehealth Sales, VA Rollout, Drive 96% Increase in Revenues and
Improved Operating Results

BERKELEY HEIGHTS, N.J., Nov. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Authentidate Holding
Corp. (Nasdaq:ADAT), a provider of secure web-based software applications and
telehealth products and services for healthcare organizations, today announced
financial results for the three-month period ended September 30, 2013.

Selected highlights for the fiscal first quarter include:

  *Increased revenues approximately 96% to a record $1.8 million compared to
    $0.9 million for the prior year quarter. This was a 25% sequential
    increase compared to the fiscal fourth quarter of 2013. Year-over-year and
    sequential revenue increases from current operations were primarily due to
    growth from telehealth products and services.
  *Improved operating margins and reduced operating loss and net loss for the
    quarter compared to the prior year period.
  *Started enrolling patients for our Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)
    telehealth pilot program for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) patients
    and announced new customers for our telehealth and referral management
    solutions.

Following the end of the quarter the company announced its strong support for
the VA's commitment to telehealth solutions. The VA has continued to expand
its focus on using technology for in-home telehealth as demonstrated by its
recently released 2014-2020 Draft Strategic Plan, as well as its requested
appropriation of $460 million for telehealth for the 2014 fiscal year, an
increase of $19 million over the prior year. The company also announced the
completion of a private placement transaction from which it received
approximately $2.4 million in net proceeds.

Ben Benjamin, Chief Executive Officer of Authentidate, stated, "This was a
strong start to our fiscal 2014 year, with record revenues and a continued,
steady narrowing of operating and net losses. The acceleration of our growth
rate reflects the results of our efforts to deploy our state-of-the-art
telehealth platform with the VA, as well as other customers. We have seen a
healthy uptick in patient activation, and continue to experience increased
demand as healthcare organizations look to improve efficiency and access to
care. The simultaneous improvement in our operating and net loss compared to
the prior year period demonstrates the value of our business model, which
benefits from a relatively fixed cost base. We believe that the strong quarter
demonstrates that we are well on our way to realizing our financial objectives
for the year, and believe the trends relative to revenue growth and improved
operating efficiency are sustainable. We also believe that our recent private
placement transaction will position us to more aggressively grow revenues,
establish a greater presence in the marketplace and respond to new product
orders and opportunities as they arise."

First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Financial Results

Revenues for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 increased approximately 96%
to $1.8 million compared to $0.9 million for the prior year period and
increased approximately 25% sequentially from $1.4 million for the fourth
quarter of fiscal 2013. These increases were due primarily to increased
revenues from telehealth products and services.

Operating loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 was $1.8 million
compared to $2.0 million for the prior year period. This decrease reflects the
increase in revenues which offset increases in selling and investor relations
expenses. Net loss for the quarter was $1.9 million, or $0.09 per share,
compared to $2.5 million, or $0.11 per share, for the prior year period. The
decrease in net loss for the period is due primarily to higher revenues and a
decrease in the non-cash amortization of the debt discount which offset the
increase in expenses for the quarter.

Balance Sheet

As of September 30, 2013 cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were
$2.5 million and the company had working capital of $3.2 million.

Mr. Benjamin concluded, "In addition to our relationship with the VA, we also
maintained our strategy of delivering our hospital discharge and referral
management solutions to customers to help them lower costs and increase
efficiencies as they confront ongoing regulatory reforms and industry trends
focused on cutting costs while improving patient outcomes. We have a number of
RFPs (request for proposals) in the pipeline and believe that as our customers
are successful in their bidding processes we will be well positioned to
capitalize on these trends as well. The strategic goals of healthcare reform
initiatives, including those within the Affordable Care Act, are very much
in-line with our offerings, and we believe that these efforts will only drive
increased demand for Authentidate's solutions."
