MSP Recovery Announces Fiscal Second Quarter 2022 Financial Results

MSP Recovery, LLC
MSP Recovery, LLC

Completed Business Combination Between Lionheart Acquisition Corporation II and MSP Recovery
Paid Value of Potentially Recoverable Claims Grew to $88.3 Billion During Quarter
Acquired Claim Recovery Rights and Rights to Cash Flows Increasing Balance Sheet Assets from $104 Million at December 31, 2021 to $6.6 Billion at June 30, 2022
Executed Agreements which could provide approximately $1.5 Billion of Capital

CORAL GABLES, Fla., Aug. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MSP Recovery, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPR) ("MSPR," "MSP Recovery," or the "Company"), a Medicare, Medicaid, commercial, and secondary payer reimbursement recovery and technology leader, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

MSPR has seen substantial growth of assets from $104 million at December 31, 2021 to $6.6 billion at June 30, 2022. The company’s significant asset growth paves the way for future revenue generation and reflects increased demand from health plans, providers, and self-insured entities for MSPR’s services, expertise, and portfolio of revenue streams. With 27% of the U.S. automobile insurance market in data matching or settlement discussions, new contracts, and the deployment of new strategic alliances and strategies, company leadership believes the company is primed for future success.

“We are off to a strong start in 2022,” said MSP Recovery Founder and CEO, John H. Ruiz. “Our continued asset growth sets us up for significant future revenue generation. I truly believe that nobody has a better combined understanding of (1) healthcare, (2) healthcare data, and (3) the law; enabling MSP to recover improperly paid claims while also deploying revolutionary technology that we believe will correct the major flaws in the U.S. healthcare system – making our business unique and difficult to replicate."

“We have already exceeded projections for many of the Company's key performance indicators following the business combination thanks to the strength of our expanding claims portfolio,” said MSP Recovery Co-Founder and Chief Legal Officer, Frank C. Quesada. “We believe we will continue to see increased recoveries as our litigation process continues against multiple parties. The recent completion of our business combination was an important milestone for our company. It further increases the market's awareness of MSP Recovery and provides additional resources to execute our growth strategy.”

“Cash flows from operations is one of MSPR’s main priorities and we continue to be focused on closing out pending cases as well as starting a general business practice of billing claims at large scale," said Ruiz. "MSPR has established, through court decisions, the rights of Medicare Part C entities as well as downstream providers to collect from those parties that are primarily responsible. Those rights were solidified by two recent decisions rendered by the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in MSP v. ACE and MSP v. Metropolitan. As per our press release on June 13, 2022, we have commenced billing over $1.5 billion to payers. Coupled with the agreements with Prudent and Virage where MSPR can monetize its claims, the claims billed for which MSPR has begun collecting, and ongoing settlement discussions, I believe MSPR has a clear line of approach to meet our recovery projections.1

Second Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue: Total revenue for the second quarter of 2022 was $5.3 million, up 57% from the second quarter of 2021.

  • Operating loss: Operating loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $52.2 million, compared with $1.5 million for the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted operating loss for the second quarter was $8.3 million excluding a one-time non-cash item as part of the business combination of $20.1 million of professional fees - legal related to share-based compensation expense and non-cash claims amortization expense of $23.8 million.2

  • Net loss: Net loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $77.1 million and $1.3 million to controlling members, or net loss per share of $0.09 per share, based on 13.6 million weighted average shares outstanding. Adjusted net loss for the second quarter was $7.9 million excluding the non-cash items noted above and an additional $14.4 million and $11.0 million of non-cash expenses related to change in fair value of warrant and derivative liabilities and paid in kind interest, respectively.2

  • Liquidity: As of June 30, 2022, cash and cash equivalents were $25.0 million. On June 16, 2022, MSP principals John H. Ruiz and Frank C. Quesada loaned the company $112 million to provide operating cash to the Company and cover costs related to the business combination. In addition, we announced potential additional capital resources totaling $1.5 billion which includes cash, $36.5 million prepaid for MSP Law Firm expenses, $1 billion from the Company Common Stock Purchase Agreement (the “CF Purchase Agreement”) between MSP Recovery and CF Principal Investments LLC (“CF”), $200 million from the Investment Capacity Agreement, by and among MSP Recovery and Virage Capital Management LP (the “Virage ICA”), based on anticipated initial closing under the Virage ICA, and up to an additional $250 million from the Prudent Sale.

1 The guidance provided is an estimate based on management’s knowledge. The nature of the Company’s business and the timing and amount of recoveries, can, depending on various factors, be unpredictable and the Company cannot provide assurances in that regard.

2 Additional information regarding the non-GAAP financial measures discussed in this release, including an explanation of these measures and how each is calculated, is included below under the heading “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.” A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures has also been provided in the financial tables included below.

  • Currently in data matching or settlement discussions with 27.4% of the Auto Insurance Market.

  • MSPR entered into agreements with multiple top auto insurers to halt litigation to explore whether a framework for a global resolution exists, where auto insurers will provide data to MSP.

  • Cano Health and La Colonia Medical Center have agreed to upload patients’ data to LifeWallet.

  • MSPR working with Tokenology on tokenized healthcare initiative on the Polygon network. This initiative, combined with LifeWallet’s biometric technology targets fraud and abuse in the U.S. healthcare system.

  • Signed an agreement with Mexico’s SeguriTech, to enhance MSPR’s data capabilities, position with MSPR for international growth, and expand MSPR’s services across Mexico.

Portfolio Growth:

MSPR seeks assignment of recovery rights from secondary payers by acquiring the recovery rights to claims from secondary payers via Claims Cost Recovery Agreements (“CCRA”). Prior to executing a CCRA, the Company utilizes its proprietary internal data analytics platform to review the set of claims and identify claims with probable recovery paths. MSPR’s assets are these irrevocable assignments of health claims recovery rights that are automatic, all-encompassing and superior to other interests supported by Federal and State laws and regulations. The table below outlines the Company's growth in these assignments:

(1) Data Matching represents potential recovery opportunities the Company has identified via court orders or agreements with primary payers. These represent potential recoveries that MSP could receive from a portion of our settlement discussions with 27.4% of Auto Insurance industry or via demand letters.

(2) As previously announced June 13th and 27th 2022, MSP initiated billing amounts to primary payers (i.e., property and casualty insurers) and Big Pharma, giving these parties the opportunity to pay without the need for litigation or extended litigation.

(3) PLRPs are established to resolve health care liens asserted by private health insurance providers in mass tort settlements. MSPR is actively working with various lien resolution administrators to recover on those owned claims for which manufacturers have already settled other lawsuits and established PLRPs.

Financial Outlook

MSP Recovery is providing guidance for its full year 2022 as follows:

  • Portfolio 2022 Guidance: Exceeded target for 2022 for growth in paid value of potentially recoverable claims by 3.2 times.

  • Full Year 2022 Recoveries Guidance: Total Gross Recoveries2 is expected to be approximately $992 million. The guidance provided is an estimate based on management’s knowledge. The nature of the Company’s business and the timing and amount of recoveries, can, depending on various factors, be unpredictable and the Company cannot provide assurances in that regard.

In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, this press release also contains Non-GAAP financial measures. We consider "Net loss excluding non-cash and one-time expenses" and "Operating loss excluding non-cash or one-time items" as non-GAAP financial measures and important indicators of performance and useful metrics for management and investors to evaluate our business's ongoing operating performance on a consistent basis across reporting periods. Net loss excluding non-cash and one-time expenses represents Net loss adjusted for certain non-cash and non-recurring expenses, and Operating loss excluding non-cash or one-time items represents Operating loss adjusted for certain non-cash and non-recurring expenses. These measures provide useful information to investors, and a reconciliation of these measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures and other information relating to these Non-GAAP measures will be included in Management's Discussion and Analysis in the Form 10-Q.
