Addus HomeCare Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results and Two Definitive Acquisition Agreements Third Quarter Financial Highlights

- Total net service revenues were $67.3 million

- Net income from continuing operations of $2.8 million, or $0.25 per diluted share

PALATINE, Ill., Nov. 7, 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 third quarter ended September 30, 2013 and the signing of two definitive acquisition agreements.

Mark Heaney, President and Chief Executive Officer of Addus HomeCare, stated: "We are pleased by the continued steady performance of our business including our growth in organic sales for which I especially want to acknowledge our Agency Directors who drive top line growth.  In addition, we are excited to announce that we have entered into two definitive acquisition agreements which further position Addus to capitalize on the opportunities presented by managed care and the dual eligible demonstration projects."

"The two acquisition agreements announced today will further expand our footprint in existing states and provide opportunities for us to grow in two new states.  Our purchase of the Medi Home Private Care Division from Medical Services of America further solidifies our presence in South Carolina and adds an initial presence in two very important managed care states, Tennessee and Ohio.  The purchase of the assets of Coordinated Home Health Care in New Mexico will increase Addus' presence in that state, which is well along in its transition to managed care.  We are looking forward to employees of Medical Services of America and Coordinated Home Health Care joining the Addus team," continued Heaney.

Third Quarter Review

Total net service revenues for the third quarter of 2013 were $67.3 million, a 10.0% increase compared to $61.2 million in the prior year quarter attributable to a 12.1% increase in average census in the quarter and a slight decline in average billable hours per client. Net income from continuing operations for the third quarter was $2.8 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, a 25.7% increase when compared to $2.2 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, in the prior year quarter. Net income, including a loss from discontinued operations, was $2.6 million, or $0.23 per diluted share.

Gross profit increased to $17.2 million or 9.8% year over year. Gross profit margin was stable at 25.6% of revenues. Operating income from continuing operations increased 10.2% to $4.3 million, or 6.3% of revenue, compared to $3.9 million, or 6.3% of revenue, in the prior year quarter. General and administrative expenses increased $1.2 million over 2012 levels, reflecting increased costs related to the deployment of telephony throughout Illinois in response to the July 1st mandate from the State, Sarbanes-Oxley Act Section 404 compliance efforts and legal and consulting expenses related to our M & A activities. We anticipate our general and administrative expenses will remain at these higher levels for the foreseeable future as we continue with the implementation of our new care system across our company, expand our Section 404 compliance activities and continue considering attractive acquisition targets.

The Company received approximately $183,000 in prompt payment interest in the quarter from the State of Illinois for late payments received in the State's fiscal year ended June 30, 2013.  This income is recorded as a reduction to our interest expense. Income taxes were positively affected in the quarter by an increase in our ability to capture Work Opportunity Tax Credits, reducing our effective tax rate by 1.0% when compared to the prior year quarter.

Cash flow for the quarter was a negative $9.3 million, primarily the result of lower collections from the State of Illinois after having received a $21 million one-time payment from the State at the end of June.

Nine Month Review

Total net service revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 were $196.1 million, an 8.6% increase compared to $180.5 million for the same prior year period. Net income from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 increased 39.0% to $8.0 million, or $0.73 per diluted share, compared to $5.8 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, in the prior year period. Net income, including the loss from discontinued operations and the gain from the sale of the home health business was $18.3 million, or $1.66 per diluted share.

Operating income, including depreciation and amortization, but excluding interest and income tax expenses, increased 21.0% to $12.0 million, or 6.1% of revenue, for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  This compares to $9.9 million or 5.5% of revenue in 2012, after adjusting operating income for the benefit of a $0.5 million gain on a sale of an agency.

Two Definitive Acquisition Agreements

The Company entered into an asset purchase agreement to acquire all of the Private Duty operations of the Medi Home Private Care Division of Medical Services of America, Inc. on October 17, 2013.  The acquisition includes two agencies located in South Carolina; four agencies located in Tennessee; and two agencies located in Ohio. The South Carolina business will be incorporated into the Company's existing operations in that state. The operations in Ohio and Tennessee represent the Company's initial entry into these two targeted states, as these states transition their long term care programs to managed care and their dual eligible demonstration pilots.

The asset purchase agreement provides for separate closings with respect to the operations in each state.  The closing related to the agencies in South Carolina took place effective November 1, 2013.

The Company also entered into an asset purchase agreement to acquire assets from Coordinated Home Health Care, LLC related to its personal care business in New Mexico on November 7, 2013.  This acquisition includes sixteen offices located in Southern New Mexico and further expands the Company's presence in that State. New Mexico has led other States in the transition of its long term care services to managed care.

The two acquisitions represent approximately $20 to $22 million in aggregate projected annual revenues for the twelve month period ending December 31, 2013.  These transactions are expected to close in the fourth quarter and are subject to customary closing conditions.  There can be no assurance that either or both of these transactions will be completed.  

Shelf Registration

The Company filed a universal shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 7, 2013.  Upon being declared effective, the shelf registration statement will provide the Company with the flexibility to offer and sell up to $150 million of common stock, preferred stock, warrants and units in one or more offerings and in any combination.  In addition, the shelf registration statement covers up to 4,951,773 shares of the Company's common stock held by certain existing stockholders in accordance with the requirements of contractual agreements previously entered into with these stockholders.  The Company will not receive any proceeds from potential sales of the common stock by these stockholders. 

The Company currently has no specific plans to issue securities under the new shelf registration statement.  Any offer of securities covered by the shelf registration statement may be made solely by means of the prospectus included in the shelf registration statement and a related prospectus supplement containing specific information about the terms of any such offering.

This press release is neither an offer to sell nor a solicitation of any offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state or jurisdiction.

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.
