PALATINE, Ill., March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Addus HomeCare Corporation (Nasdaq: ADUS), a provider of home-based social and medical services focused on the elderly dual eligible population, announced today its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.

Fourth Quarter Review 

Total net service revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $63.8 million, a 9.4% increase compared to $58.3 million in the prior year quarter.  Net income, including discontinued operations, was $3.7 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, a 50% increase over the prior year quarter.  Net income from continuing operations was $3.5 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, a 20.2% increase when compared to prior year quarter.  Continuing operations includes the results of operations previously included in the Home & Community segment and three agencies previously included in the Home Health segment. 

Mark Heaney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Addus HomeCare, stated, "Our Home & Community segment continued to demonstrate positive growth during the fourth quarter and we are pleased with the sale of our Home Health business."

Gross profit margins have declined when compared to the prior year quarter due to an increase in workers compensation expense.  Fourth quarter results from continuing operations for 2012 were positively affected by Workers Opportunity Tax Credits realized in the quarter, which substantially reduced income tax expense.  Fourth quarter 2011 results from continuing operations included two extraordinary items; the revaluation of contingent consideration and the receipt of prompt payment interest from the State of Illinois.  Income tax expense was negatively affected in 2011 by the goodwill impairment charge taken in 2011 on the Home Health business. 

On a pro forma basis, earnings from continuing operations were $0.30 per diluted share in 2012, after normalizing the effective tax rate to 34.1%.  Earnings from continuing operations in the fourth quarter of 2011 were $0.22 per diluted share after excluding: the effect of the revaluation of contingent consideration related to the acquisition of CarePro and the prompt payment interest received from the State of Illinois and after normalizing the annual effective tax rate to 33.0%.

Twelve Month Review

Total net service revenues from continuing operations for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 were $244.3 million, a 6.2% increase compared to $230.1 million for the same prior year period.  Net income for 2012, including discontinued operations, was $7.6 million or $0.71 per diluted share, compared to a reported loss in 2011 of $2.0 million or $(0.18) per diluted share.  Net income from continuing operations was $9.3 million, or $0.86 per diluted share, a 10.4% increase when compared to the prior year.    

On a pro forma basis, earnings from continuing operations in 2012 were $0.83 per diluted share after excluding the gain from the sale of an agency which occurred in the first quarter of 2012.  Pro forma earnings from continuing operations in 2011 were $0.61 per diluted share after excluding the effect of the revaluation of contingent consideration related to the acquisition of CarePro and the prompt payment interest received from the State of Illinois. 

The business is cyclical in nature.  Payroll taxes are higher in the early quarters of the year and are reduced in the later quarters.  It is anticipated unemployment taxes will increase in 2013 as a result of scheduled increases in both federal and state unemployment tax rates. 

Sale of Home Health Business

Effective March 1, 2013, the Company completed the sale to subsidiaries of LHC Group, Inc. of substantially all of the assets used in the Company's Home Health business in Arkansas, Nevada and South Carolina, and 90% of the Home Health business in California and Illinois with the Company retaining a 10% ownership interest in those locations. The purchase price of the assets totaled approximately $20 million in cash.  The net proceeds from the transaction are being used to pay off outstanding debt and for general corporate purposes.

The operations represented by these assets are reflected in the Company's financial statements as discontinued operations.  The revenues and expenses related to the business are reflected in the financial statements net of taxes, with taxes calculated at the statutory rates for each year.  Approximately $240,000 and $346,000 of Corporate General and Administrative expenses have been included in the cost of discontinued operations for the fourth quarter of 2012 and 2011 respectively.  Corporate General and Administrative expenses of $1.4 million and $1.5 million have been included in the annual results for 2012 and 2011, respectively.

The Company expects the benefits of completing this transaction will be increased management focus on developing its core Home & Community business and the expansion of its programs offered to managed care plans; lower debt; and a stronger balance sheet.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The information provided in this release includes Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, which the Company defines as earnings before goodwill and intangible asset impairment charge, revaluation of contingent consideration, net interest   (income)   expense,   taxes,   depreciation,   amortization,   and   stock-based compensation expense.  The Company has provided, in the financial statement tables included in this press release, a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure.
