Net service revenues of $101.6 million increase 9.7% year-over-year
First-quarter 2017 net income of $4.3 million or $0.37 per diluted share increases from $157,000 or $0.01 per diluted share for first-quarter 2016

FRISCO, Texas, May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Addus HomeCare Corporation (NASDAQ: ADUS), a provider of comprehensive home care services, today announced its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

For the first quarter, net service revenues increased 9.7% to $101.6 million from $92.6 million for the first quarter of 2016. Net income was $4.3 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, for the latest quarter, compared with $157,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2016. Adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.34, an increase of 21.4% from $0.28 for the first quarter of 2016. (See pages 7 and 8 for a reconciliation of all non-GAAP and GAAP financial measures.)

"With our first quarter financial results, we are off to a solid start in 2017," commented Dirk Allison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Addus. "We are pleased with our 4.1% increase in same store revenues for the first quarter and we are excited about our recently announced acquisition of Options Home Care. We also continue to benefit from a substantial margin increase due to continuing process improvements and cost reduction initiatives begun in 2016."

Net service revenues for the first quarter of 2017 reflected an 8.3% increase in billable hours per business day compared with the first quarter of 2016, and comparable-quarter revenues per billable hour rose 1.3%. The Company's revenue growth combined with margin improvement produced a 19.8% increase in adjusted EBITDA to $8.0 million for the quarter.

At March 31, 2017, Addus had $19.1 million in cash and $23.8 million of bank debt. Net cash provided by operating activities was $9.6 million for the first quarter, compared with net cash used by operating activities of $6.0 million for the first quarter of 2016.

Addus also announced today that it has completed a new senior secured credit facility including a $125 million revolver, a $45 million term loan and an $80 million delayed draw term loan, replacing the previous facility. The maturity of the new facility is five years, although the delayed draw term loan is only available for 18 months. Under the terms of the agreement, $100 million in incremental term debt is available for acquisitions.

Mr. Allison concluded, "Addus is well positioned in 2017 to grow both organically and through acquisitions. With the previously announced addition of Brad Bickham as Executive Vice President – Chief Operating Officer during the first quarter, our executive team is complete. We remain on-track to implement our new payroll system in July, further enhancing our efficiency and enabling us to focus more fully on growing our business. The completion of our new credit facility also significantly strengthens our ability to fund our growth. As one of the nation's leading home care providers in a growing, highly fragmented market, we remain enthusiastic about our future and our ability to increase shareholder value."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The information provided in this release includes adjusted net income per diluted share, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net service revenues, which are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company defines adjusted net income per diluted share as net income per diluted share, adjusted for M&A expenses, stock-based compensation expense, restructure charges and severance and other costs. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest expense, taxes, depreciation, amortization, M&A expenses, stock-based compensation expense, restructure charges and severance and other costs. The Company defines adjusted net service revenues as net service revenues adjusted for the closure of certain sites. The Company has provided, in the financial statement tables included in this press release, a reconciliation of adjusted net income per diluted share to net income per diluted share, a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income and a reconciliation of adjusted net service revenues to net service revenues, in each case, the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Management believes that adjusted net income per diluted share, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net service revenues are useful to investors, management and others in evaluating the Company's operating performance, to provide investors with insight and consistency in the Company's financial reporting and to present a basis for comparison of the Company's business operations among periods, and to facilitate comparison with the results of the Company's peers.
