The following highlights the Company’s results of operations as presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018:

  • Same-hospital revenues totaled $1,548.5 million, an increase of 2.1% compared to the same period last year;
  • Net income totaled $23.3 million;

The Company’s results of operations for the third quarters ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, included the following non-operational adjustments:

  • For the third quarter of 2018, the Company recognized losses in the aggregate of $40.1 million, or $0.77 loss per diluted share, comprised of an impairment loss recognized in connection with the Company’s entry into a proposed settlement agreement to terminate its lease and operation of a hospital campus located in Louisiana and the recognition of merger-related expenses;
  • Also, for the third quarter of 2018, the Company recognized additional salaries and benefits expense of $21.6 million, or $0.50 loss per diluted share, related to the acceleration of the vesting of outstanding stock-based awards for the Company’s chief executive officer, as a result of his announced retirement;
  • Lastly, for the third quarter of 2018, the Company recognized a deferred tax benefit of $23.6 million, or $0.59 earnings per diluted share, related to a tax accounting method change for recognizing the tax deductibility of certain self-pay revenues; and
  • For the third quarter of 2017, the Company recognized a net gain of $3.7 million, or $0.13 loss per diluted share when adjusted for the impact of income taxes, comprised of a gain related to the transfer of certain of the Company’s home health agencies and hospices to In-Home Healthcare Partnership (“IHHP”), a joint venture with LHC Group, Inc., which the Company does not consolidate, and an impairment loss for the write-off of allocated goodwill in connection with the sale of a hospital campus located in Georgia.

Excluding the non-operational adjustments listed above, highlights of the Company’s results of operations, as adjusted on a non-GAAP basis, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, were as follows:

  • Normalized net income totaled $50.3 million;
  • Normalized diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders were $1.24; and
  • Normalized EBITDA totaled $183.3 million.

Additional information regarding normalized net income, normalized diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders, adjusted EBITDA and normalized EBITDA, including uses by management and others, and a reconciliation to comparable GAAP measures of financial performance, is set forth under the section titled “Unaudited Supplemental Information.”

For the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, the Company’s same-hospital revenues increased $32.2 million, or 2.1%, to $1,548.5 million, compared to $1,516.3 million for the same period last year. The increase in the Company’s same-hospital revenues consisted of a 0.7% increase in same-hospital equivalent admissions and a 1.4% increase in same-hospital revenues per equivalent admission for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to the same period last year. When adjusted to exclude the impact of the transfer of the Company’s home health and hospice service lines to IHHP, the Company’s same-hospital revenues increased $35.9 million, or 2.4%, for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, compared to the same period last year.

When adjusted to exclude the aforementioned third quarter 2018 and 2017 non-operational adjustments, normalized net income for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, was $50.3 million, compared to normalized net income of $34.9 million for the same period last year, and normalized diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, were $1.24, compared to normalized diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders of $0.80 for the same period last year.

Normalized EBITDA for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, was $183.3 million, or 11.8% of revenues, compared to $176.0 million, or 11.2% of revenues, for the same period last year. This increase was primarily a result of the aforementioned increase in same-hospital revenues and effective cost management.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2018

The following highlights the Company’s results of operations as presented in accordance with GAAP for the nine months ended September 30, 2018:

  • Same-hospital revenues totaled $4,668.0 million, an increase of 1.0% compared to the same period last year;
  • Net income totaled $72.8 million;
  • Diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders were $1.66; and
  • Net cash provided by operating activities totaled $398.3 million, an increase of $104.9 million, or 35.8%, compared to the same period last year.

In addition to the aforementioned third quarter 2018 and 2017 non-operational adjustments, the Company’s results of operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, included the following additional non-operational adjustments:

  • For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company recognized an additional net charge of $69.5 million, or $1.37 loss per diluted share, primarily related to impairment losses recognized during the first quarter of 2018 in connection with the Company’s entry into definitive agreements to sell the assets of three hospital campuses located in Louisiana, partially offset by net gains related to the first quarter transfer of one of the Company’s home health agencies to IHHP and the second quarter sale of an ancillary rehabilitation facility; and
  • For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the Company recognized additional gains in the aggregate of $30.4 million, or $0.42 earnings per diluted share, related to the settlement of a contingent liability previously established in connection with a prior hospital acquisition and the transfer of certain of the Company’s home health agencies and hospices to IHHP.

Excluding the non-operational adjustments listed above, highlights of the Company’s results of operations, as adjusted on a non-GAAP basis, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, were as follows:

  • Normalized net income totaled $153.9 million;
  • Normalized diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders were $3.71; and
  • Normalized EBITDA totaled $558.8 million.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, the Company’s same-hospital revenues increased $47.0 million, or 1.0%, to $4,668.0 million, compared to $4,621.0 million for the same period last year. The increase in the Company’s same-hospital revenues consisted of a 1.4% increase in same-hospital revenues per equivalent admission, partially offset by a 0.4% decrease in same-hospital equivalent admissions for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to the same period last year. When adjusted to exclude the impact of the transfer of the Company’s home health and hospice service lines to IHHP, the Company’s same-hospital revenues increased $63.3 million, or 1.4%, for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to the same period last year.

When adjusted to exclude the aforementioned non-operational adjustments recognized during the nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017, normalized net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, was $153.9 million, compared to normalized net income of $128.0 million for the same period last year, and normalized diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, were $3.71, compared to normalized diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders of $2.87 for the same period last year.

Normalized EBITDA for the nine months ended September 30, 2018, was $558.8 million, or 11.8% of revenues, compared to $563.8 million, or 11.7% of revenues, for the same period last year. This decrease was primarily the result of the recognition of $9.4 million less in Medicare and Medicaid electronic health record (“EHR”) incentive income during the nine months ended September 30, 2018, compared to the same period last year. The Company’s EHR incentive payments under this program substantially concluded in 2017.

Commenting on the results, William F. Carpenter III, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of LifePoint Health, said, “We are pleased with our strong operating results for the third quarter of 2018, driven by same hospital revenue growth, effective cost management, and strong operating cash flows. We believe that these results are a reflection of our organization’s disciplined approach to operations and our commitment to ‘Making Communities Healthier.’ As we proceed through the process to complete our pending merger with RCCH HealthCare Partners, I am confident that LifePoint is poised for continued growth and success into the future.”

Numerous factors exist which may cause results to differ from these expectations. Many of the factors that will determine our future results are beyond our ability to control or predict with accuracy. Such forward-looking statements reflect the current expectations and beliefs of the management of LifePoint, are not guarantees of performance and are subject to a number of risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that could cause actual results to differ from those described in the forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements may also be subject to other risk factors and uncertainties, including without limitation: the possibility that the anticipated benefits from the proposed merger will not be realized, or will not be realized within the expected time periods; the occurrence of any event, change or other circumstances that could give rise to termination of the proposed merger agreement; the failure of our stockholders to adopt the merger agreement; operating costs, loss and business disruption (including, without limitation, difficulties in maintaining relationships with employees, business partners or suppliers) may be greater than expected following the announcement of the proposed merger; the retention of our key employees; risks associated with the disruption of management’s attention from ongoing business operations due to the proposed merger; the inability to obtain necessary regulatory approvals of the proposed merger or the receipt of such approvals subject to conditions that are not anticipated; the risk that a condition to closing the proposed merger may not be satisfied on a timely basis or at all; the risk that the proposed merger fails to close for any other reason; the outcome of any legal proceedings related to the proposed merger; the parties’ ability to meet expectations regarding the timing and completion of the proposed merger; the impact of the proposed merger on our credit rating; the effects of actions to amend or impede the implementation of, or repeal and replace, the Affordable Care Act, the possible enactment of additional federal or state healthcare reforms and possible changes in healthcare reform laws and other federal, state or local laws or regulations affecting the healthcare industry including the timing of the implementation of reform; the extent to which states support increases, decreases or changes in Medicaid programs, or alter the provision of healthcare to state residents through regulation or otherwise; reductions in, or delays in receiving, Medicare or Medicaid payments (including increased recoveries made by Recovery Audit Contractors (RACs) and similar governmental agents); payer mix pressures as a result of aging populations in non-urban communities; reductions in reimbursements from commercial payers and risks associated with consolidation among commercial insurance companies and shifts to insurance plans with narrow networks, high deductibles or high co-payments; the continued viability of our operations through joint venture entities, the largest of which is Duke LifePoint Healthcare, our partnership with a wholly controlled affiliate of Duke University Health Systems, Inc.; our ability to successfully integrate acquired facilities into our ongoing operations and to achieve the anticipated financial results and synergies from such acquisitions, individually or in the aggregate; the deterioration in the collectability of “bad debt” and “patient due” accounts, and the number of individuals without insurance coverage (or who are underinsured) who seek care at our facilities; industry emphasis on value-based purchasing and bundled payment arrangements; whether our efforts to reduce the cost of providing healthcare while increasing the quality of care are successful; the ability to attract, recruit or employ and retain qualified physicians, nurses, medical technicians and other healthcare professionals and the increasing costs associated with doing so, including the direct and indirect costs associated with employing physicians and other healthcare professionals; the loss of certain physicians in markets where such a loss can have a disproportionate impact on our facilities in such market; the application and enforcement of increasingly stringent and complex laws and regulations governing our operations and healthcare generally (and changing interpretations of applicable laws and regulations), related enforcement activity and the potentially adverse impact of known and unknown government investigations, litigation and other claims that may be made against us; risks due to cybersecurity attack or security breach and our access to personal information of patients and employees; our ability to successfully implement standardized systems throughout the company; payer controls designed to reduce inpatient services; our ability to generate sufficient cash flow to fund all of our capital expenditure programs and commitments; adverse events in states where a large portion of our revenues are concentrated; liabilities resulting from potential malpractice and related legal claims brought against our facilities or the healthcare providers associated with, or employed by, such facilities or affiliated entities; our increased dependence on third parties to provide purchasing, revenue cycle and payroll services and information technology and their ability to do so effectively; our ability to acquire healthcare facilities on favorable terms and the business risks, unknown or contingent liabilities and other costs associated therewith; changes in interpretations, assumptions, and expectations regarding the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, including additional guidance that may be issued by federal and state taxing authorities; and those other risks and uncertainties described from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

(2) Management and investors use equivalent admissions as a general measure of combined inpatient and outpatient volume. The Company computes equivalent admissions by multiplying admissions (inpatient volumes) by the Outpatient factor. The equivalent admissions computation “equates” outpatient revenue to the volume measure (admissions) used to measure inpatient volume resulting in a general measure of combined inpatient and outpatient volume.
(3) The sum of gross inpatient revenue and gross outpatient revenue divided by gross inpatient revenue.
(4) Same-hospital information includes the results of the Company’s health support center and the same 68 hospital campuses operated during both the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017. Same-hospital information excludes the Company’s hospitals that have previously been disposed.

UNAUDITED SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION

From time to time, the Company incurs certain non-recurring gains or losses that are non-operational in nature and that it does not consider relevant in assessing its ongoing operating performance. When significant, LifePoint’s management and Board of Directors typically exclude these gains or losses when evaluating the Company’s operating performance and in certain instances when evaluating performance for incentive compensation purposes. Additionally, the Company believes that some investors and equity analysts exclude these or similar items when evaluating the Company’s current or future operating performance and in making informed investment decisions regarding the Company. Accordingly, the Company provides normalized net income and normalized diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders as a supplement to the comparable GAAP measures of net income and diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders, respectively. Normalized net income and normalized diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders should not be considered measures of financial performance in accordance with GAAP, and the items excluded from normalized net income and normalized diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Normalized net income and normalized diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income or diluted earnings per share attributable to LifePoint Health, Inc. stockholders as presented in the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

LIFEPOINT HEALTH, INC.

UNAUDITED SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION (Continued)

Adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company as earnings before depreciation and amortization; interest expense, net; other non-operating losses (gains), net; (benefit) provision for income taxes; and net income attributable to noncontrolling interests and redeemable noncontrolling interests (when applicable for the periods presented). Additionally, normalized EBITDA excludes the $21.6 million of additional stock-based compensation expense recognized during the third quarter of 2018, primarily related to the acceleration of the vesting of outstanding stock-based awards for the Company’s chief executive officer, as a result of his announced retirement. LifePoint’s management and Board of Directors use adjusted EBITDA and normalized EBITDA to evaluate the Company’s operating performance and as a measure of performance for incentive compensation purposes. LifePoint’s credit facilities use adjusted EBITDA, subject to further permitted adjustments, for certain financial covenants. The Company believes adjusted EBITDA and normalized EBITDA are measures of performance used by some investors, equity analysts, rating agencies and lenders to make informed decisions as to, among other things, the Company’s ability to incur and service debt and make capital expenditures. In addition, multiples of current or projected adjusted EBITDA and normalized EBITDA are used by some investors and equity analysts to estimate current or prospective enterprise value. Adjusted EBITDA and normalized EBITDA should not be considered measures of financial performance in accordance with GAAP, and the items excluded from adjusted EBITDA and normalized EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA and normalized EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows generated by operating, investing or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the condensed consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance. Because adjusted EBITDA and normalized EBITDA are not measurements determined in accordance with GAAP and are susceptible to varying calculations, adjusted EBITDA and normalized EBITDA as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
