Chaim Indig: Thank you, Balaji, and good evening, everyone. Thank you for participating in our third quarter earnings call. Our stakeholder letter and earnings release were published about an hour ago. Let me start the call with a couple of highlights. For starters, I am pleased with our third quarter performance, both financially and operationally. Total revenue in the third quarter was $91.6 million up 25% year-over-year. Adjusted EBITDA was negative $6.6 million, an $11.7 million improvement year-over-year. During the quarter, we completed a small acquisition of connect on call, which complements our current product suite with an innovative medical answering solution that improves patient experience and makes it easier for on call providers to respond to patient calls.

Before Balaji discusses our fiscal 2024 and 2025 outlook, let me briefly address our decision to delay the achievement of $500 million in run-rate revenue to fiscal 2026. Over the past couple of months, we determined that in order to achieve $500 million in run-rate revenue in fiscal 2025, we would need to increase our spending to a level that we were simply not comfortable with in the current economic and capital markets environment. Therefore, we have made very intentional decisions to delay certain planned investments in the payer space, which will accelerate our adjusted EBITDA growth. We continue to work with CMS and other payers to measure and improve performance and activation. We believe this work will drive revenue. Adjusted EBITDA, and health outcomes improvements over the long-term.

We believe our decision will enhance shareholder value. Let me now hand it over to Balaji.

Balaji Gandhi: Thank you, Chaim. Let me start by addressing our outlook for fiscal 2024. We are maintaining our revenue outlook for fiscal 2024 at $353 million to $356 million, implying year-over-year growth of 26% to 27%. We note that the maintenance of our $3 million revenue range, it's mostly related to our network solutions revenue line, where we have a wider range of revenue scenarios in the month of January, which represents a new spending year for our life sciences clients. We are raising our fiscal 2024 adjusted EBITDA outlook to approximately negative $39 million from a previous range of negative $54 million to negative $49 million. This represents a $12.5 million increase from the midpoint of our prior outlook, highlighting the strong operating leverage we continue to generate across the business.

We also believe, it is important to provide an early outlook for fiscal 2025 given our evolving capital allocation philosophy that Chaim discussed earlier. We expect fiscal 2025 revenue to be in the range of $424 million to $434 million. Our fiscal 2025 revenue outlook at the midpoint implies growth of over 20% above our fiscal 2024 outlook range. The revenue range provided for fiscal 2025 assumes no additional revenue from potential future acquisitions completed between now and January 31, 2025. We are updating our expectation of $500 million in revenue run rate to now be achieved in fiscal 2026 compared to our previous outlook of fiscal 2025. The later expected achievement is the result of a very intentional decision we have made to delay certain investments in the payer space.

We prefer to target growth in the 20% range, while accelerating our profitability growth. To that end, we now expect adjusted EBITDA to be in the range of positive $10 million to positive $20 million, compared to our previous target of achieving profitability at some point during fiscal 2025. The increase in our fiscal 2025 adjusted EBITDA outlook is mostly tied to the delay in planned investments in the payer space. As we think about revenue growth, it is critical to consider the multitude of factors that can drive our revenue growth, which we believe is a very unique and attractive aspect of Phreesia's business model. We continue to grow average healthcare services clients by leveraging our proven go-to-market team. It's also important to appreciate that the growth in our healthcare services client network drives network solutions revenue.

We remain comfortable in our ability to finance our fiscal 2025 outlook, given the significant progress we have made in improving cash flow and with our current cash position. Separately, you will notice that we entered into a new five-year $50,000,000 senior secured revolving credit facility with Capital One. This new facility replaces our former facility with Silicon Valley Bank. We believe the new facility will give us additional financial flexibility through its five-year term. Operator, I think we can now open it up for questions.
