Addus HomeCare Announces Second-Quarter 2016 Results
Net service revenues increase 17.6% year over year to $100.9 million
GAAP diluted EPS of $0.23
Adjusted diluted EPS of $0.31

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Aug. 1, 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 second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2016.

For the second quarter, net service revenues were $100.9 million, a 17.6% increase from $85.8 million for the second quarter of 2015. Net income was $2.6 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016 compared with $3.3 million, or $0.29 per diluted share, for the second quarter last year. Adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.31 for the second quarter of 2016 compared with $0.32 for the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted net income per diluted share for the second quarter of 2016 excludes senior management severance costs of $0.04, stock-based compensation expense of $0.03 and restructure charges of $0.01 related to process improvement and expense reduction initiatives launched in the first quarter. For the second quarter last year, adjusted net income per diluted share excludes stock-based compensation expense of $0.02 and M&A expenses of $0.01. (See page 7 for a reconciliation of all non-GAAP and GAAP financial measures.)

For the first six months of 2016, net service revenues increased 15.4% to $193.5 million from $167.7 million for the first half of 2015. Net income was $2.8 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the first six months of 2016 compared with $5.4 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, for the same prior-year period. Adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.61 for the first half of 2016, up 10.9% from $0.55 for the first six months of 2015.

"We are pleased with the Company's operating and financial performance for the second quarter," commented Dirk Allison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Addus.  "Our 17.6% revenue growth took us above milestone quarterly revenues of $100 million for the first time. Excluding revenues for the previously announced closed locations, adjusted net service revenues increased 21.5% for the second quarter of 2016 from the second quarter last year, driven by both an increase in same store sales of 4.0% and the first-quarter acquisition of South Shore.  Billable hours per day increased 16.3% for the latest quarter compared with the second quarter of 2015, while revenues per billable hour increased 1.2%. Compared with the first quarter of 2016, billable hours per day increased 8.9%.

"We have made substantial progress on our process improvement and expense reduction initiatives launched in the first quarter.  We continue to expect that these initiatives will produce aggregate annualized cost savings of over $4.1 million.  We achieved some initial savings in the second quarter and expect to produce a material level of savings in the second half of 2016. We also expect further savings in the second half of 2016 as our provision for doubtful accounts returns to a more normal range of approximately 1.0% to 1.2% of revenue compared with 1.8% for the second quarter."

Due to potential leasing activity, the Company has delayed the Contact Center write-off of $2.3 million that, as mentioned in the first-quarter earnings call, was expected during the second quarter.  This write-off could be taken in the third quarter if this activity is not completed as currently expected.

Mr. Allison concluded, "As previously discussed, after focusing during the first half of 2016 on the most pressing issues addressed by our process improvement and expense reduction initiatives, we have now shifted our primary focus in the second half of the year to refining and implementing our organic and acquisition growth strategies.  We remain confident of the underlying industry dynamics that support the long-term growth of the personal care service industry, as well as the opportunities we have as a scaled industry leader to gain market share in a highly fragmented industry. We believe we are executing well in preparing our infrastructure for future growth. We are fully committed to expanding our business through the delivery of high quality, cost-effective care to our consumers, and in so doing, to producing long-term profitable growth and increased shareholder value."

Addus completed the second quarter with $8.2 million in cash, $42.5 million of debt and $46.4 million of availability under its revolving credit facility. Net cash used in operating activities was $12.3 million for the second quarter of 2016, compared with net cash provided by operations of $35.9 million for the second quarter of 2015. Due to recent legislation, Addus expects that its $67.9 million account receivable with the state of Illinois, related to services the Company provides the state's non-Medicaid consumers, will be brought current during the third quarter, although no assurances can be given that this action will occur. The Company also expects to receive over $1.0 million in prompt payment interest for these past due amounts.

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.
