HealthSouth Reports Results for Second Quarter 2015
Strong Volume Growth in Both Segments
Earnings Per Share Comparison Impacted by Prior Year Acquisition Gain and 2015 Bond Redemption
Substantial Development Activity
PR Newswire
BIRMINGHAM, Ala.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthSouth Corporation (NYSE: HLS), one of the nation's largest providers of post-acute healthcare services, offering both facility-based and home-based post-acute services, today reported its results of operations for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

"The second quarter was characterized by strong volume growth in both segments and an 11.0% increase in our Adjusted EBITDA," said Jay Grinney, President and Chief Executive Officer of HealthSouth. "While reported results were negatively impacted by unusual items, we saw substantial development activity across both segments. In our inpatient rehabilitation segment, we completed the acquisition of Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital and created a new joint venture in Savannah, Georgia, while announcing four additional joint ventures to build new hospitals in Tennessee, Oklahoma, Ohio, and Arkansas. In our home health segment, we added new locations in four of our existing IRF markets. Both segments' development pipelines remain strong, and we are excited about the Company's continued growth prospects."

Second Quarter Consolidated Results

  • The Company's consolidated net operating revenues increased by $160.0 million, or 26.5%, in the second quarter of 2015 compared to the second quarter of 2014. Approximately $114 million of this increase resulted from the Company's acquisition of Encompass Home Health and Hospice ("Encompass") on December 31, 2014. The remainder of the increase predominantly came from the Company's inpatient rehabilitation hospitals. Net operating revenues from the Company's hospitals were 8.6% higher for the second quarter of 2015 compared to the same quarter of 2014.
  • Income from continuing operations attributable to HealthSouth per diluted share for the second quarter of 2015 was $0.47 per share compared to $0.81 per share for the second quarter of 2014. Earnings per share for the second quarter of 2014 benefited by $0.26 per share due to the Company's increase in ownership and consolidation of Fairlawn Rehabilitation Hospital ("Fairlawn") in Worcester, Massachusetts effective June 1, 2014, including the associated tax benefits of the transaction. Earnings per share for the second quarter of 2015 included an $18.8 million, or $0.11 per share, loss on early extinguishment of debt associated with the Company's redemption of its 8.125% Senior Notes due 2020 (the "2020 Notes"), as discussed below. The Company's earnings per share in the second quarter of 2015 also reflected increased depreciation and amortization resulting from the Company's capital expenditures and development activities throughout 2014 and the first half of 2015, as well as higher interest expense due to the debt used to fund the acquisition of Encompass on December 31, 2014.
  • Cash flows provided by operating activities were $204.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2015 compared to $235.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014. This decrease primarily resulted from increases in working capital and cash interest expense, as well as transaction costs incurred to date in connection with the Company's pending acquisition of Reliant Hospital Partners, LLC and affiliated entities ("Reliant").
  • Adjusted EBITDA (see attached supplemental information) for the second quarter of 2015 was $169.5 million compared to $152.7 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 11.0%. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2015 included approximately $2.6 million of gains associated with the Company's equity interest in Surgical Care Affiliates ("SCA"), its former surgery centers division.
  • Adjusted free cash flow (see attached supplemental information) for the second quarter of 2015 was $94.5 million compared to $97.9 million for the second quarter of 2014 as the Company's continued growth in Adjusted EBITDA was offset by increases in net working capital and cash interest expense

Second Quarter Results — Inpatient Rehabilitation Segment

  • Net operating revenues for the inpatient rehabilitation segment were $645.3 million for the second quarter of 2015 compared to $597.1 million for the second quarter of 2014, an increase of 8.1%. This increase was attributable to an 8.3% increase in patient discharges and a 0.3% increase in net patient revenue per discharge. Discharge growth included a 2.8% increase in same-store discharges and a 5.5% increase in new-store discharges. Approximately 110 basis points of discharge growth from new stores resulted from the consolidation of Fairlawn effective June 1, 2014, with the remainder resulting from three de novo hospitals that opened in the fourth quarter of 2014 (Altamonte Springs, Florida; Newnan, Georgia; and Middletown, Delaware), the Company's acquisitions of Quillen Rehabilitation Hospital in Johnson City, Tennessee (November 2014) and Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky (May 2015), and the Company's joint venture with Memorial Health in Savannah, Georgia (April 2015). While the Company experienced pricing growth from Medicare and managed care payors, these price adjustments were offset by updated Supplemental Security Income ("SSI") ratios published by the United States Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services ("CMS") for fiscal year 2013 and proportionally higher discharge growth in Medicaid and managed care payors, where the Company's reimbursement is lower. The SSI ratio adjustment resulted in an approximate $5 million reduction in revenues in the second quarter of 2015 while similar ratio adjustments resulted in an approximate $2 million increase in revenues in the second quarter of 2014.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (see attached supplemental information) from the inpatient rehabilitation segment for the second quarter of 2015 was $170.5 million compared to $174.7 million for the second quarter of 2014. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2015 compared to the second quarter of 2014 primarily resulted from the SSI ratio adjustments and proportionally higher growth in discharges from payors with lower reimbursement, as discussed above, an approximate $4 million increase in group medical insurance reserves, increased bad debt expense, and incremental costs associated with investments in the Company's operating platform, including a contractual increase in costs associated with the ongoing implementation of its electronic clinical information system, the addition of staff at hospitals to ensure compliance with new CMS quality reporting requirements, the creation of a new medical services department, and costs associated with its participation in CMS' Model 3 bundling pilot initiative.

Second Quarter Results — Home Health and Hospice Segment

The Company's home health and hospice segment reported $119.1 million of net operating revenues and $19.0 million of Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2015. The results of operations for the home health and hospice segment in 2014 include only HealthSouth's legacy hospital-based home health agencies. The increase in net operating revenues and Adjusted EBITDA (see attached supplemental information) for the Company's home health and hospice segment in 2015 resulted from its acquisition of Encompass on December 31, 2014.

Debt and Preferred Stock Transactions

In March 2015, the Company issued $300 million of 5.125% Senior Notes due 2023 (the "2023 Notes") at a price of 100.0% of the principal amount, which resulted in approximately $295 million in net proceeds from the public offering. On April 10, 2015, the Company used the net proceeds from the 2023 Notes offering along with cash on hand to execute the redemption of its 2020 Notes. Pursuant to the terms of the 2020 Notes, this redemption was made at a price of 104.063%, which resulted in a total cash outlay of approximately $302 million to retire the $290 million in principal. As a result of this redemption, the Company recorded an $18.8 million loss on early extinguishment of debt in the second quarter of 2015.

On April 22, 2015, the Company delivered notice of the exercise of its rights to force conversion of all outstanding shares of its convertible perpetual preferred stock (par value of $0.10 per share and liquidation preference of $1,000 per share) pursuant to the underlying certificate of designations. The effective date of the conversion was April 23, 2015. On that date, each share of preferred stock automatically converted into 33.9905 shares of the Company's common stock (par value of $0.01 per share). The Company completed the forced conversion by issuing and delivering in the aggregate 3,271,415 shares of its common stock to the registered holders of the 96,245 shares of the preferred stock outstanding and paying cash in lieu of fractional shares due to those holders. The conversion increased the number of basic shares outstanding by 3,271,415 but did not change the diluted share count. On an annual basis, the conversion of the preferred stock to common stock is expected to result in a net positive cash impact of $3.2 million for the difference between preferred dividends and common dividends on these shares, based on the current common dividend level of $0.23 per share.

Development Activity

In June 2015, the Company entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the operations of Reliant for a cash purchase price of $730 million. Reliant operates a portfolio of 11 inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in Texas, Massachusetts, and Ohio for a total of 902 beds. This transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals, including expiration or termination of all applicable waiting periods under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act, is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2015. The Company expects to fund this transaction with cash on hand and senior debt.

All of the Reliant hospitals are leased, and seven of the leases are treated as capital leases for accounting purposes. The Company will assume the lease obligations of all the acquired hospitals. The amount of the capital lease obligation to be recognized on the Company's balance sheet upon closing is preliminarily estimated at approximately $210 million. In addition, operating entities for seven Reliant hospitals include minority limited partners. The interests held by limited partners represent less than 10% of the equity of the combined Reliant operating entities. The cash purchase price will be reduced for any remaining limited partner interests at closing.

In 2014, Reliant's operations generated revenues of approximately $249 million and Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $82 million. The acquisition of the operations of Reliant is expected to be immediately accretive, excluding transaction costs, to HealthSouth's earnings per share following closing.

In addition to signing a definitive agreement with Reliant to expand its portfolio of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, the Company:

  • began operating an inpatient rehabilitation hospital in Savannah, Georgia with its joint venture partner, Memorial Health;
  • acquired Cardinal Hill Rehabilitation Hospital in Lexington, Kentucky;
  • entered into four joint venture agreements for inpatient rehabilitation hospitals;
  • continued development of three de novo hospitals;
  • acquired five new home health locations; and
  • opened one new home health location.

Dividend Increase

On July 16, 2015, the Company's board of directors approved an increase in the Company's quarterly dividend of 9.5% and declared a quarterly cash dividend on its common stock of $0.23 per share. The dividend will be payable on October 15, 2015 to holders of record on October 1, 2015.

"We continue to generate significant levels of free cash flow which supports our development activity in both business segments, as well as our common dividend," said Doug Coltharp, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of HealthSouth. "Our balance sheet remains strong, and we are well-positioned to fund the Reliant transaction."

2015 Guidance

The Company's year-to-date results for 2015 include strong revenue growth that has been offset by the impact of various adjustments including:

  • atypical litigation settlements;
  • retroactive adjustments resulting from updates to SSI ratios;
  • increased group medical insurance reserves; and
  • increased bad debt expense resulting from additional pre-payment claims denials by Medicare Administrative Contractors and continued delays of approximately three years in the adjudication process at the administrative law judge hearing level.

In spite of these headwinds, the Company reiterates its Adjusted EBITDA guidance of $670 million to $680 million for 2015. The Company currently expects its Adjusted EBITDA to be in the lower end of this range.

The Company is revising its previously provided earnings per diluted share guidance for 2015 from a range of $2.13 to $2.19 per share to a range of $2.11 to $2.17 per share to include approximately $3 million of transaction costs incurred to date related to its pending acquisition of Reliant. Earnings per share are presented using income from continuing operations attributable to HealthSouth.

The Company's guidance does not include any contribution from the pending acquisition of Reliant.

In addition, HealthSouth, through its senior management, may from time to time make forward-looking public statements concerning the matters described herein. All such estimates, projections, and forward-looking information speak only as of the date hereof, and HealthSouth undertakes no duty to publicly update or revise such forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.

Actual events or results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of a variety of factors. While it is impossible to identify all such factors, factors which could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those estimated by HealthSouth include, but are not limited to, the price of HealthSouth's common or preferred stock as it affects the Company's willingness and ability to repurchase shares and the financial and accounting effects of any repurchases; any adverse outcome of various lawsuits, claims, and legal or regulatory proceedings involving HealthSouth, including its pending DOJ and HHS-OIG investigations and any matters related to yet undiscovered issues, if any, at Encompass or Reliant; any adverse effects on HealthSouth's stock price resulting from the integration of Encompass or Reliant; potential disruptions, breaches, or other incidents affecting the proper operation, availability, or security of HealthSouth's information systems, including unauthorized access to or theft of patient or other sensitive information as well as unforeseen issues, if any, related to integration of Encompass' systems; the ability to successfully integrate Encompass or Reliant, including realization of anticipated tax benefits, revenues, and cost savings, minimizing the negative impact on margins arising from the changes in staffing and other operating practices, and avoidance of unforeseen exposure to liabilities; significant changes in HealthSouth's management team; HealthSouth's ability to successfully complete and integrate de novo developments, acquisitions, investments, and joint ventures consistent with its growth strategy; changes, delays in (including in connection with resolution of Medicare payment reviews or appeals), or suspension of reimbursement for HealthSouth's services by governmental or private payors; changes in the regulation of the healthcare industry at either or both of the federal and state levels, including as part of national healthcare reform and deficit reduction; competitive pressures in the healthcare industry and HealthSouth's response thereto; HealthSouth's ability to obtain and retain favorable arrangements with third-party payors; HealthSouth's ability to attract and retain nurses, therapists, and other healthcare professionals in a highly competitive environment with often severe staffing shortages and the impact on HealthSouth's labor expenses from potential union activity and staffing shortages; general conditions in the economy and capital markets, including any crisis resulting from uncertainty in the sovereign debt market; the increase in the costs of defending and insuring against alleged professional liability claims and HealthSouth's ability to predict the estimated costs related to such claims; and other factors which may be identified from time to time in HealthSouth's SEC filings and other public announcements, including HealthSouth's Form 10K for the year ended December 31, 2014 and Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2015, and June 30, 2015, when filed.
