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. By Mr. Lee's own admission, he basically ran pro-bono ads on the billboard. Paying advertisers didn't want ads on a controversial, ugly billboard that turned off customers. At least one of Mr. Lee's free advertisers dropped out early because they found that Mr. Lee's advertising was having negative impact. So Mr. Lee is disingenous to say the city now owes him for lost revenue. Mr. Lee quickly realized his monstrosity had a dim future and is trying to get the city to bail him out. And that's why the billboard came down so quickly.

  2. Merchants Square is back. The small strip center to the south of 116th is 100% leased, McAlister’s is doing well in the outlot building. The former O’Charleys is leased but is going through permitting with the State and the town of Carmel. Mac Grill is closing all of their Indy locations (not just Merchants) and this will allow for a new restaurant concept to backfill both of their locations. As for the north side of 116th a new dinner movie theater and brewery is under construction to fill most of the vacancy left by Hobby Lobby and Old Navy.

  3. Yes it does have an ethics commission which enforce the law which prohibits 12 specific items. google it

  4. Thanks for reading and replying. If you want to see the differentiation for research, speaking and consulting, check out the spreadsheet I linked to at the bottom of the post; it is broken out exactly that way. I can only include so much detail in a blog post before it becomes something other than a blog post.

  5. 1. There is no allegation of corruption, Marty, to imply otherwise if false. 2. Is the "State Rule" a law? I suspect not. 3. Is Mr. Woodruff obligated via an employment agreement (contractual obligation) to not work with the engineering firm? 4. In many states a right to earn a living will trump non-competes and other contractual obligations, does Mr. Woodruff's personal right to earn a living trump any contractual obligations that might or might not be out there. 5. Lawyers in state government routinely go work for law firms they were formally working with in their regulatory actions. You can see a steady stream to firms like B&D from state government. It would be interesting for IBJ to do a review of current lawyers and find out how their past decisions affected the law firms clients. Since there is a buffer between regulated company and the regulator working for a law firm technically is not in violation of ethics but you have to wonder if decisions were made in favor of certain firms and quid pro quo jobs resulted. Start with the DOI in this review. Very interesting.
