Arcadia sees smaller loss, extends WellPoint pact

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Arcadia Resources Inc. continued to shed money in its most recent quarter, but took a smaller loss than it did in the same period a year ago, the Indianapolis-based health care company announced Monday morning.

Arcadia lost $4 million, or 2 cents per share, on revenue of $25.8 million in its first fiscal quarter, which ended June 30. That compares to a loss of $4.6 million, or 3 cents per share, on revenue of $26.4 million for the same quarter of 2009.

The loss was far narrower than the $19.2 million hit the company suffered in the last quarter of fiscal 2009.

“During our first quarter, we continued to make substantial progress across both of our businesses,” said Arcadia CEO Marvin R. Richardson.

In its pharmacy segment, Arcadia reported revenue of $5.1 million in the latest quarter, marking a 57.1-percent increase for its DailyMed medication-management system over the year-ago period.

Arcadia’s DailyMed service packages dosages of prescriptions into individual packets, to make it easier for patients on numerous medications to stick to their regimens.

Quarterly revenue in the services segment was $20.4 million, a decrease of $2.3 million, or 10.2 percent, compared to the same quarter last year.

In addition on Monday, Arcadia said it reached a new three-year agreement to offer the DailyMed program to high-risk Medicaid members in select states where WellPoint Inc. companies provide Medicaid-managed care benefits. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

DailyMed is currently offered in WellPoint-affiliated health plans in Virginia, California and South Carolina, and will be launched in Kansas later this year. The new agreement opens as many as 1.8 million more WellPoint members in 10 states to the DailyMed product.

A research report released in late July predicted Arcadia’s DailyMed business would grow rapidly in the next few years, spurring the company to profitability.

  1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
