Addus HomeCare Announces Third-Quarter 2016 Results
Net service revenues increase 22.7% year over year to $103.5 million
GAAP diluted EPS of $0.15
Adjusted diluted EPS of $0.39

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Addus HomeCare Corporation (NASDAQ: ADUS), a comprehensive provider of personal care services provided in the home, today announced its financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Net service revenues grew 22.7% to $103.5 million for the third quarter from $84.3 million for the third quarter of 2015. Net income was $1.7 million for the third quarter of 2016 compared with $2.9 million for the third quarter last year. Net income per diluted share was $0.15 for the third quarter of 2016, down 42.3% from $0.26 for the third quarter of 2015, while adjusted net income per diluted share increased 34.5% to $0.39 from $0.29. Adjusted net income per diluted share for the third quarter of 2016 excludes restructure charges of $0.23, stock-based compensation expense of $0.03, and severance and other costs of $0.02 and includes normalization of effective tax rate expense of $0.04. For the third quarter last year, adjusted net income per diluted share excludes stock-based compensation expense of $0.03. (See page 7 for a reconciliation of all non-GAAP and GAAP financial measures.)

For the first nine months of 2016, net service revenues increased 17.8% to $297.0 million from $252.1 million for the first nine months of 2015. Net income was $4.5 million for the latest nine months compared with $8.3 million for the same prior-year period. Net income per diluted share for the first nine months of 2016 was $0.40, a decrease of 45.9% from $0.74 for the first nine months of 2015, while adjusted net income per diluted share increased 17.9% to $0.99 from $0.84.

Dirk Allison, President and Chief Executive Officer of Addus, remarked, "We are pleased to report an outstanding third quarter for Addus. We achieved substantial growth in revenues - including same store growth of 4.1% - and in adjusted EPS. We produced strong cash flow from operations and significantly strengthened our balance sheet, due both to our increased adjusted earnings and to the pay down of the past-due Illinois non-Medicaid accounts receivable."

For the third quarter, revenue growth was driven by a 22.9% increase in billable hours per business day. Revenues per billable hour declined slightly for the quarter.  While the majority of the growth in billable hours per day was attributable to the first-quarter acquisition of South Shore, same store revenues contributed meaningfully to revenue growth for the quarter.

The favorable impact of achieving targeted run-rate savings from process improvement and cost reduction initiatives benefitted third-quarter adjusted earnings per diluted share, as disclosed above, and is reflected in the 45.4% growth in adjusted EBITDA to $8.7 million. During the third quarter, Addus took the previously discussed write-off for the Contact Center, which accounted for approximately $1.8 million of the $3.7 million restructure charges for the quarter. In addition, the Company closed three underperforming adult day services locations during the third quarter, accounting for the remainder of the restructure charge.

Addus completed the third quarter of 2016 with $39.4 million in cash, $24.4 million of bank debt and $69.5 million of availability under its revolving credit facility. Net cash provided by operating activities was $49.3 million for the quarter and $31.0 million for the first nine months of 2016.

Mr. Allison concluded, "There are compelling dynamics supporting the long-term growth of the personal care industry, while increasing regulatory pressure and operating complexity increase consolidation pressures in this highly fragmented industry. We believe Addus is well positioned in this environment, due to our scale and financial strength. We are confident in our ability to deliver high quality, cost-effective care to our consumers. Through continued execution of proven organic growth and acquisition strategies, we expect to produce further profitable growth and increased 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.
