(a) For the three months ended December 31, 2012 and excluding the impact of
    currency, our growth in the U.K. would have been 25.4%, our growth in

In the fourth quarter, our U.S. revenues were negatively impacted by an estimated $3 million as a result of Hurricane Sandy.

The growth was largely due to increased volumes resulting from market share gains.

Other financial data - We generated $24.8 million of cash flow from operations in 2012, of which $9.7 million was generated in the fourth quarter. We ended the quarter with $8.6 million of cash on hand, approximately $385.0 million of total debt and total leverage of 4.15x. Our total debt consisted of $250.0 million of senior unsecured notes due July 2019, $99.9 million outstanding under the senior secured revolving credit facility, $34.5 million outstanding under the working capital facilities in the U.K., and $575,000 in seller subordinated notes. As of the end of the year, our committed availability under our credit facilities was approximately $180 million, of which approximately $55 million is immediately available and the balance of approximately $125 million is available to fund future acquisitions.

Business Outlook

ExamWorks is providing the following business outlook for the full year and the first quarter of 2013:

  • Full year 2013 reported revenues are expected to increase organically by 5-7% from our 2012 pro forma revenues of approximately $574 million, excluding the effects of currency.

  • Full year 2013 adjusted EBITDA margins are expected to range between 15.5% and 16.5% of reported revenues. The 50 bps change from our prior guidance is the result of significantly higher healthcare costs and employee enrollment into our benefit plans than originally anticipated. On a quarterly basis, adjusted EBITDA margins as a percentage of revenue will fluctuate between 15% and 17%.

  • First quarter 2013 reported revenues are expected to range between $144 million and $148 million.

  • First quarter 2013 reported adjusted EBITDA margins are expected to be approximately 15% of reported revenues.

  • Starting in 2013, we intend to announce acquisitions as they close rather than guiding to an annual number. We believe that this will allow analysts and shareholders to more accurately and consistently model our expected results going forward.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In connection with the ongoing operation of our business, our management regularly reviews Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, to assess our performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, acquisition-related transaction costs, share-based compensation expenses, and other non-recurring costs. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA is an important measure of our operating performance because it allows management, lenders, investors and analysts to evaluate and assess our core operating results from period to period after removing the impact of changes to our capitalization structure, acquisition related costs, income tax status, and other items of a non-operational nature that affect comparability.

We believe that various forms of the Adjusted EBITDA metric are often used by analysts, investors and other interested parties to evaluate companies such as ours for the reasons discussed above. Additionally, Adjusted EBITDA is used to measure certain financial covenants in our credit facility. Adjusted EBITDA is also used for planning purposes and in presentations to our Board of Directors as well as in our incentive compensation programs for our employees.

Non-GAAP information should not be construed as an alternative to GAAP information, as the items excluded from the non-GAAP measures often have a material impact on our financial results. Management uses, and investors should use, non-GAAP measures in conjunction with our GAAP results.

Below is a table presenting a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net loss, the most comparable GAAP measure, for each of the periods indicated.

Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...

The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...
"At our booth we are showing how to provide trust in the Internet of Things. Trust is where everything starts to become secure and trustworthy.

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO, President, and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., discussed how you can create applications that run on all mobile devices as well as laptops and desktops using a visual drag-and-drop application – and eForms-buildi...
We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
Code Halos - aka "digital fingerprints" - are the key organizing principle to understand a) how dumb things become smart and b) how to monetize this dynamic. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Brown, AVP, Center for the Future of Work at Cognizant Technology Solutions, outlined research, analysis and recommendations from his recently published book on this phenomena on the way leading edge organizations like GE and Disney are unlocking the Internet of Things opportunity and what steps your organization should be taking to position itself for the next platform of digital competition.
