Addus HomeCare Announces First-Quarter 2016 Results
Net service revenues increase 13.1% year over year to $92.6 million
Process and cost improvement initiatives well underway
Adjusted diluted EPS grows 21.7% to $0.28; GAAP diluted EPS is $0.01, including write-offs

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., May 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Addus HomeCare Corporation (NASDAQ: ADUS), a comprehensive provider of personal care services primarily provided in the home and focused on the dual eligible population, today announced its financial results for the first  quarter ended March 31, 2016.

For the first quarter, net service revenues increased 13.1% to $92.6 million from $81.9 million for the first quarter of 2015. Net income was $0.2 million, or $0.01 per share, for the first quarter of 2016 compared with net income of $2.2 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2015. The results for the first quarter of 2016 include write-offs of $3.5 million, $2.2 million of which were related to senior management severance and other related costs, with the remainder related to process improvement and expense reduction initiatives launched in the quarter. Excluding these costs, adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.28 for the first quarter of 2016, an increase of 21.7% compared with $0.23 for the first quarter last year. (See page 7 for a reconciliation of all non-GAAP and GAAP financial measures.)

Dirk Allison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Addus, commented, "Addus produced a strong start to 2016 in the first quarter. Revenue and adjusted EPS grew at a higher rate than in the past year. We implemented a variety of initiatives to support our strategies for growth while ensuring that costs are in line with revenues. In addition, we completed the acquisition of South Shore."

The Company's revenue growth for the first quarter reflected an 10.8% increase in billable hours per business day compared with the first quarter last year. First-quarter billable hours per business day grew 8.6% compared with the fourth quarter of 2015. With a 0.4% increase in revenues per billable hour, comparable-quarter revenue per day increased 11.3% versus the first quarter of 2015.

"As discussed in our fourth-quarter 2015 earnings release and conference call, we have been focused on process improvement initiatives that result in expense reduction and improvement in our operating efficiency and scalability to support our growth," added Mr. Allison. "We have completed a substantial portion of the plan and are actively implementing a number of these initiatives. These initiatives resulted in $1.3 million write-offs for the first quarter. In total, we expect these initiatives to result in write‑offs of $3.5 million over the first half of 2016, approximately $0.4 million of which will be cash. These initiatives are expected to produce aggregate annualized cost savings of approximately $4.1 million."

Details are as follows:

  • The closing of our Contact Center facility, as part of returning control of customer service and scheduling to our local teams, resulted in a $0.2 million first-quarter write-off, and an expected $2.3 million second quarter write-off ($0.4 million of which is cash). These initiatives are expected to generate $1.2 million in annualized savings beginning in the second quarter;
  • Changes in our telecommunications operations, resulted in a $0.2 million first-quarter write off and will generate an expected $1.6 million in annualized savings, with the majority occurring in the second half of the year;
  • Changes in our payroll process are expected to result in $1.3 million in annualized savings beginning early in the fourth quarter; and
  • The write-off of development costs relating to software that will no longer be used by Addus, resulted in a $0.9 million write-off in the first quarter.

"We are pleased with the progress made on these and other initiatives, which we expect to drive meaningful cost reductions by the end of 2016. Through a disciplined focus on ensuring our investments in new initiatives generate appropriate returns, we expect to enhance our ability to provide our consumers with high quality, cost-effective care, improve our ability to add value to existing and new customer relationships, and sustain long-term profitable growth both organically and through acquisition."

Addus completed the first quarter with $9.1 million in cash, $22.0 million of long-term debt related to the acquisition of South Shore, $10.0 million of bank debt and $42.8 million of availability under its revolving credit facility. Net cash used in operating activities was $6.0 million for the first quarter of 2016, compared with $0.9 million for the prior-year first quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The information provided in this release includes adjusted diluted net income per share, Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net service revenue, which are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company defines adjusted diluted net income per share as diluted net income per share, adjusted for M&A expenses, restructure charges, severance and other costs and stock compensation. The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings 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 revenue as revenue 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 diluted net income per share to diluted net income per share, a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income and a reconciliation of adjusted net service revenue to net service revenue, in each case, the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Management believes that adjusted diluted net income per share, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net service revenue 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.
