Business Combinations [Abstract]  
Business Combination Disclosure [Text Block]
On July 28, 2014, the Company completed the acquisition of three revenue cycle management companies, Omni Medical Billing Services, LLC (“Omni”), Practicare Medical Management, Inc. (“Practicare”) and CastleRock Solutions, Inc. (“CastleRock”), collectively the (“Acquired Businesses”). These acquisitions added a significant number of clients to the Company’s customer base and, similar to other acquisitions, broadened the Company’s presence in the healthcare information technology industry through geographic expansion of its customer base and by increasing available customer relationship resources and specialized trained staff. 
The aggregate purchase price for the Acquired Businesses amounted to approximately $17.4 million. This is based on the common stock price of $3.89 per share, and consisted of cash in the amount of approximately $11.4 million, which was funded from the net proceeds from the Company’s IPO, and 1,699,796 shares of common stock with a fair value of approximately $6.0 million based on the common stock price, less a fair value adjustment of $571,000, which reflects the estimated value of shares in escrow which might be forfeited by the Acquired Businesses based on changes in revenue during the 12 months after the acquisitions. Included in the total consideration paid is $590,302 of cash and the 1,699,796 shares of common stock with a value of approximately $6.6 million that the Company deposited into escrow under the purchase agreements.
The cash escrow was released 120 days after the acquisitions were completed. After six months, 254,970 shares were scheduled to be released to the sellers; however, only the 201,173 shares for Omni and Practicare were released in February 2015. The balance of 53,797 shares, initially issued to CastleRock, were released from escrow to MTBC and cancelled on February 19, 2015, pursuant to the settlement agreements discussed below between CastleRock and MTBC. Of the remaining shares in escrow, 157,298 shares were released after nine months, and the remaining shares are scheduled to be released after 12 months, subject to adjustments for changes in revenue.
With respect to Omni, following the closing date an upward purchase price adjustment was made to the cash consideration payable to Omni to pay for the annualized revenue from new customers who executed one-year contracts prior to the closing, instead of the trailing 12 months’ revenue. This resulted in additional consideration of $100,582 and 15,700 shares, which are included in the amounts above.
The difference between the Acquired Businesses’ operating results for the period July 28 through July 31, 2014 and the amount of net funds received by the Company from the previous owners for that period was accounted for as additional purchase price and was assigned to Acquired Backlog. This intangible (approximately $148,000) was fully amortized from the date of acquisition to December 31, 2014. This amortization is included in depreciation and amortization in the condensed consolidated statements of operations for the year ended December 31, 2014.
On February 19, 2015, the Company entered into settlement agreements with certain parties that the Company believed had violated (or tortuously interfered with) an agreement restricting them from directly or indirectly soliciting customers of the Company pursuant to the acquisition agreement between the Company and CastleRock.
In accordance with the settlement agreements, the Company paid $110,000 which had been accrued at December 31, 2014 and has agreed to release its claims in consideration for (i) the forfeiture of 53,797 shares of Company stock that were otherwise issuable to CastleRock in connection with the acquisition of the CastleRock businesses, (ii) changing the provision which governs the reduction of the CastleRock purchase price to exclude revenues from customers not in good standing when calculating the number of shares to be issued as discussed below, (iii) terminating the consulting agreement between the Company and CastleRock, and (iv) an agreement between the Company, EA Health Corporation, Inc. (“EA Health”) and a former CastleRock employee prohibiting EA Health and that former employee from soliciting or creating business relationships with any additional current or former customers of the Company for a period of six (6) months, which expired on June 17, 2015. The obligations of the Company and CastleRock contained in the acquisition agreement remain intact aside from the modifications contained in the settlement agreements. The effect of this settlement reduced the outstanding number of shares by 53,797 and resulted in a settlement gain for the fair value of those shares, which was determined to be $133,000. The settlement gain is recorded within the change in contingent consideration in the condensed consolidated statement of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2015.
Under each purchase agreement, the Company may be required to issue or entitled to cancel shares issued to the Acquired Businesses in the event acquired customer revenues for the 12 months following the close are above or below a specified threshold. In the case of Practicare, the Company may also be required to make additional cash payment, in the event post-closing revenues from customers acquired exceed a specified threshold.
The adjustments to the consideration for each of the Acquired Businesses will be based on the revenues generated from the acquired customers in the 12 months following the closing, as compared to the revenues generated by each of the Acquired Businesses in the four quarters ended March 31, 2014.
For each of Omni and Practicare, no adjustment will be made unless the variance is greater than 10% and 5%, respectively. Pursuant to the above settlement agreement between CastleRock and MTBC, there is no longer a minimum threshold for adjustment for CastleRock.
For each of the Acquired Businesses, the number of shares to be cancelled or issued as applicable will be calculated using a pre-determined formula in each of the purchase agreements.
As of the acquisition date, the Company recorded $4.4 million as the fair value of the contingent consideration liability as additional purchase price. During the three and six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company recorded an $87,000 and $916,000 change to the contingent consideration, respectively. These amounts consist of a reduction to the liability primarily due to both a decrease in the expected revenues that CastleRock will achieve and a decrease in the Company’s stock price. The change in contingent consideration for the six months ended June 30, 2015 contains a $132,879 gain due to CastleRock’s forfeiture of 53,797 shares of the Company’s common stock. Subsequent adjustments to the fair value of the contingent consideration liability will continue to be recorded in the Company’s results of operations. The portion of the purchase price to be paid with the Company’s stock that is not contingent upon achieving specified revenue targets has been recorded as equity.
If the performance measures required by the 2014 purchase agreements are not achieved, the Company may pay less than the recorded amount, depending on the terms of the agreement. If the price of the Company’s common stock increases, the Company may pay more than the recorded amount. Settlement will be in the form of Company’s common stock.

We engaged a third-party valuation specialist to assist the Company in valuing the assets from our acquisition of the Acquired Businesses. The results of the valuation analysis are presented below:
Customer contracts and relationships
Non-compete agreements
Tangible assets
Acquired backlog
The weighted-average amortization period of the acquired intangible assets is 3 years.
The fair value of the customer relationships was established using a form of the income approach known as the excess earnings method. Under the excess earnings method, value is estimated as the present value of the benefits anticipated from ownership of the subject intangible asset in excess of the returns required on the investment in the contributory assets necessary to realize those benefits. The fair value of the non-compete agreements were determined based on the difference in the expected cash flows for the business with the non-compete agreement in place and without the non-compete agreement in place.
The goodwill is deductible ratably for income tax purposes over 15 years and represents the Company’s ability to have a local presence in several markets throughout the United States and the further ability to expand in those markets.
The pro forma information below represents condensed consolidated results of operations as if the acquisition of the Acquired Businesses occurred on January 1, 2014.
