(NASDAQ: BIOS) today announced 2014 first quarter financial results. First quarter revenue from continuing operations was $239.6 million and the net loss from continuing operations was $25.4 million, or $0.37 per basic and diluted share. Non-GAAP adjusted loss from continuing operations perbasic anddiluted share was $0.13.  As a result of the completed sale of BioScrip's Home Health business on March 31, 2014, the Company's prior periodfinancial statementshave been reclassified to include theHome Health business as "discontinued operations" in the Consolidated Financial Statements.  First Quarter Highlights    oRevenue from continuing operations increased by $58.5 million, or 32.3%,     as compared to the prior year period. Revenue from the Infusion Services     segment increased by $67.0 million, or 43.4%, as compared to the prior     year period. Organic revenue growth for the Infusion Services segment     remained in the double digits year-over-year.   oGross profit from continuing operations was $65.1 million, or 27.2% of     revenue, as compared to $56.0 million, or 30.9% of revenue, in the prior     year period. The decline in gross profit margin percentage was driven     primarily by the decline in the higher-margin PBM Services segment.   oAdjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $9.1 million, a decrease of     $1.1 million over the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA from the Infusion     Services segment increased by $2.9 million, or 24.7%, as compared to the     prior year and corporate overhead decreased by $0.4 million, or 5.6%,     offset by a $4.5 million, or 73.0%, decrease in the PBM Services segment.     Adjusted EBITDA also included a $2.2 million favorable adjustment to the     fair value of contingent consideration relating to the Company's Infusion     acquisitions, offset by a $2.0 million increase in the bad debt provision     relating to acquisition integration disruption. Additionally, Adjusted     EBITDA included $1.4 million of increased investment in reimbursement     resources in the form of overtime, temporary labor, collection incentives     and third-party professional fees.   oAs a result of the focus on cash collections, BioScrip has made meaningful     progress with monthly average collections growing from $55.7 million in     the third quarter of 2013 to $70.0 million in the first quarter of 2014.     Consolidated collections grew from $53.0 million in September of 2013 to     $79.8 million in April of 2014.   oOn March 31 BioScrip completed its previously announced sale of     substantially all of its Home Health business to LHC Group, Inc. for a     total purchase price of approximately $60 million. BioScrip used the net     proceeds to pay down a portion of its outstanding debt.  "Our first-quarter results reflect our success in achieving our two strategic priorities of building a leadership position in the home infusion industry and generating strong cash collections. We are pleased to deliver double-digit organic growth in Infusion Services, and expect to continue driving growth through our enhanced scale and expanded physician and payor relationships across our operating footprint. We also completed the integration of all of our Infusion locations onto a single operating platform. As one team, one company, we are already realizing greater efficiencies in our business and optimizing our productivity. At the same time, our cash collection efforts are yielding positive results and providing us with greater financial flexibility to execute our long-term plans," said Rick Smith, President and Chief Executive Officer of BioScrip.  "We remain focused on advancing each of our initiatives to drive organic growth in our core business, while continuing to provide outstanding clinical care to patients across our network. Our team members across the organization are highly focused on our continued success, and we look forward to continuing our momentum to drive results and create value for our shareholders," concluded Smith.  Results of Operations  First Quarter 2014 versus First Quarter 2013 Revenue from continuing operations for the first quarter of 2014 totaled $239.6 million, compared to $181.1 million for the same period a year ago, an increase of $58.5 million or 32.3%. Infusion Services segment revenue was $221.4 million in the first quarter as compared to $154.4 million for the same period in 2013. The 43.4% increase was driven primarily by the acquisitions of HomeChoice and CarePoint, as well as continued strong double-digit organic growth.  Consolidated gross profit for the first quarter of 2014 was $65.1 million, or 27.2% of revenue, compared to $55.9 million, or 30.9% of revenue, for the first quarter of 2013. The increase in gross profit was the result of the acquisitions of HomeChoice and CarePoint and organic growth, offset by the decline in the PBM Services segment. The decline in gross profit margin percentage was driven primarily by the decline in the higher-margin PBM Services segment.  During the first quarter of 2014, Infusion Services segment Adjusted EBITDA was $14.9 million, or 6.7% of segment revenue, compared to $11.9 million, or 7.7% of segment revenue, in the prior year quarter. The 24.7% improvement in Adjusted EBITDA in the Infusion Services segment resulted primarily from organic revenue growth and the HomeChoice and CarePoint acquisitions. Infusion Services segment Adjusted EBITDA also included a $2.2 million favorable adjustment to the fair value of contingent consideration relating to our infusion acquisitions, offset by a $2.0 million increase in the bad debt provision relating to acquisition integration disruption.  PBM Services segment revenue was $18.2 million for the first quarter of 2014, compared to $26.8 million for the prior year period. The decline was related to the termination of a large but low-margin client during the first quarter of 2013, and declines in discount card revenue. PBM Services segment Adjusted EBITDA was $1.7 million, or 9.2% of segment revenue, for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $6.2 million, or 23.2% of segment revenue, in the prior year quarter.  On a consolidated basis, BioScrip reported $9.1 million of Adjusted EBITDA during the first quarter of 2014, or 3.8% of total revenue, compared to $10.2 million, or 5.6% of total revenue, in the same period last year. Adjusted EBITDA included $1.4 million of increased investment in reimbursement resources in the form of overtime, temporary labor, collection incentives and third-party professional fees.  Interest expense in the first quarter of 2014 was $10.5 million compared to $6.5 million in the prior year period.  Income tax expense for continuing operations in the first quarter of 2014 was $3.5 million compared to an income tax benefit of $0.2 million in the prior year period.  The loss from continuing operations, net of taxes, for the first quarter of 2014 was $25.4 million, or a loss of $0.37 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $8.4 million, or $0.15 per basic and diluted share, in the prior year period.  Liquidity and Capital Resources  For the three months ended March 31, 2014, BioScrip used $24.5 million in net cash from continuing operating activities, compared to cash used of $14.1 million during the first quarter of 2013. The increase in cash used in operating activities was primarily due to increase in working capital to support the growth of the business and an increase in accounts receivable primarily due to the integration of the Infusion acquisitions. As of March 31, 2014, the Company's cash balance was $9.3 million, and it had $418.7 million of outstanding debt and an undrawn $75 million revolving credit facility. On March 31, 2014, the Company completed its previously announced sale of substantially all of its Home Health business to LHC Group, Inc. for a total purchase price of approximately $60 million. The Company used the net proceeds to pay down a portion of its outstanding debt. Capital expenditures for the first quarter of 2014 were $3.1 million.  Outlook  The Company believes its 2014 revenue will be in a range of $940.0 million to $980.0 million and believes its 2014 Adjusted EBITDA will be in a range of $55.0 million to $60.0 million. This reflects the Company's current assessment of the business and assumes:    oInfusion Services segment is expected to continue to deliver double-digit     organic revenue growth;   oInfusion Services segment Adjusted EBITDA margin percentage is expected to     trend toward a 10% target by the fourth quarter of 2014; and   oContinued stability is expected in our PBM Services segment from an     adjusted EBITDA perspective consistent with first-quarter performance.

Forward-Looking Statements – Safe Harbor  This press release includes statements that may constitute "forward-looking statements," including projections of certain measures of the Company's results of operations, projections of certain charges and expenses, and other statements regarding the Company's goals, regulatory approvals and strategy. These statements are made pursuant to the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. You can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. In some cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as "may," "should," "could," "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "intend," "plan," "believe," "predict," "potential," "continue" or comparable terms. Because such statements inherently involve risks and uncertainties, actual future results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Investors are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties, and that actual results may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors. Important factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include but are not limited to risks associated with: the Company's ability to integrate the CarePoint business and other acquisitions; the Company's ability to grow its Infusion Services segment organically or through acquisitions and obtain financing in connection therewith; its ability to reduce operating costs while sustaining growth; reductions in federal, state and commercial reimbursement for the Company's products and services; increased government regulation related to the health care and insurance industries; as well as the risks described in the Company's periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Company's annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013.

Reconciliation to Non-GAAP Financial Measures  In addition to reporting all financial information required in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company is also reporting EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EPS, which are non-GAAP financial measures. EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS are not measurements of financial performance under GAAP and should not be used in isolation or as a substitute or alternative to net income, operating income or any other performance measure derived in accordance with GAAP, or as a substitute or alternative to cash flow from operating activities or a measure of our liquidity. In addition, the Company's definitions of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS may not be comparable to similarly titled non-GAAP financial measures reported by other companies. EBITDA represents net income before net interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company, represents net income before net interest expense, loss on extinguishment of debt, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration expenses, restructuring-related expenses and investments in start-up operations. As part of restructuring, the Company may incur significant charges such as the write down of certain long−lived assets, temporary redundant expenses, retraining expenses, potential cash bonus payments and potential accelerated payments or terminated costs for certain of its contractual obligations. Adjusted EPS, as defined by the Company, represents earnings per basic and diluted share, excluding the same elements in calculating Adjusted EBITDA as well as the impact of acquisition-related intangible amortization. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information regarding the performance of our business operations and facilitates comparisons to our historical operating results. For a full reconciliation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS to the most comparable GAAP financial measures, please see the attachments to this earnings release.
