01 Aug, 2013, 16:07 ET from Addus HomeCare Corporation

PALATINE, Ill., Aug. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Addus HomeCare Corporation (Nasdaq: ADUS), a comprehensive provider of home and community based services, primarily social in nature and provided in the home, and focused on the dual eligible population, announced today its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Second Quarter Review

Total net service revenues for the second quarter of 2013 were $65.8 million, an 8.8% increase compared to $60.4 million in the prior year quarter.  Net income from continuing operations for the second quarter was $2.6 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, a 40.7% increase when compared to $1.8 million or $0.17 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter.  Net income, including a loss from discontinued operations, was $2.4 million, or $0.22 per diluted share. 

Mark Heaney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Addus HomeCare, stated, "We are pleased by the steady performance of our business and the increased cash collections in the quarter.  We remain focused on our efforts to improve our organic sales results, develop and deploy technology to leverage our work force and position our organization to capitalize on the opportunities presented by the dual eligible demonstration projects in our core markets." 

Operating income, including depreciation and amortization but excluding interest and income tax expenses, increased 23.7% to $4.0 million, or 6.1% of revenue, in the second quarter, compared to $3.2 million, or 5.3% of revenue, in the prior year quarter reflecting increased leverage of our fixed costs.  This improvement was primarily due to a 4.5% increase in average census and an 8.6% increase in billable hours, driven largely by improved field productivity.  The Company received a $0.2 million benefit in revenues and gross margin during the quarter as changes to the State of Illinois' billing programs were not implemented until May 1, 2013. 

The Company incurred a $270,000 charge in the second quarter related to severance payments made for a management position terminated in the quarter.  Income taxes were positively affected in the second quarter by a one-time increase in our ability to capture Work Opportunity Tax Credits estimates related to prior periods to reduce our effective tax rate by 3.0% in the quarter. 

The share count increased in the quarter, a function of our increased stock price and the inclusion of stock options in our diluted share counts that previously had been "under water."  The impact of this dilution on our earnings per share was $0.01.

Total cash flow for the quarter was a positive $21.0 million, primarily the result of a large one-time payment received from the State of Illinois at the end of June and collections made on our home health accounts receivable.

Six Month Review

Total net service revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2013 were $128.8 million, a 7.9% increase compared to $119.3 million in the same prior year period.  Net income from continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2013 increased 47.1% to $5.3 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared to $3.6 million or $0.33 per diluted share, in the prior year period.  Net income, including the loss from discontinued operations and the gain from the previously announced sale of the home health business, was $15.7 million, or $1.44 per diluted share. 

Operating income, including depreciation and amortization, but excluding interest and income tax expenses, increased 18.2% to $7.7 million, or 6.0% of revenue, for the six months ended June 30, 2013, compared to $6.5 million, or 5.5% of revenue in the prior year.  The Company benefited from a $0.8 million increase in revenues and gross margin during this period as technical changes to the State of Illinois billing programs were not implemented until early May. 

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 discontinued operations, interest 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. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA is 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.
