BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthSouth Corporation (NYSE: HLS), the nation's largest owner and operator of inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, today reported its results of operations for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

"HealthSouth's third quarter was solid in every respect," said Jay Grinney, President and Chief Executive Officer of HealthSouth. "Our high-quality, cost-effective hospitals treated 4.2% more patients than in the third quarter of 2011 resulting in a 13.3% quarter-over-quarter increase in Adjusted EBITDA. We enhanced the flexibility of our capital structure through the issuance of $275 million of 5.75% senior notes maturing in 2024 and continued to lay the foundation for future growth through the development and construction of three new hospitals and the execution of a letter of intent to purchase Walton Rehabilitation Hospital in Augusta, Georgia."

Third Quarter Results

  • Consolidated net operating revenues were $537.0 million for the third quarter of 2012 compared to $497.7 million for the third quarter of 2011, or an increase of 7.9%. This increase was attributable to a 4.2% increase in patient discharges and a 4.4% increase in net patient revenue per discharge. Discharge growth was comprised of 2.5% growth from new stores and a 1.7% increase in same-store discharges. Approximately 130 basis points of discharge growth from new stores resulted from the consolidation of St. Vincent Rehabilitation Hospital beginning in the third quarter of 2012, as discussed below. Discharge growth in the third quarter of 2012 was unfavorably impacted by the timing of patient discharges from the last week of September into the first week of October. We experienced a modest increase in the length of stay of our September patient population which we have seen normalize in October. Because we recognize revenue on a per diem basis, much of the revenue associated with the carryover patients was recognized in September even though the discharges occurred in October. Net patient revenue per discharge in the third quarter of 2012 compared to the same period of 2011 was favorably impacted by the aforementioned increase in length of stay and also benefited from pricing adjustments from Medicare and managed care payors, higher average acuity for the patients served, and a higher percentage of Medicare patients.
  • Income from continuing operations attributable to HealthSouth per share for the third quarter of 2012 was $0.44 per share compared to $0.17 per share for the same period of 2011. Earnings per share for the third quarter of 2012 reflected strong operating results as well as a $4.9 million gain resulting from the consolidation of St. Vincent Rehabilitation Hospital and a $3.5 million gain related to a recovery from Richard Scrushy. The net after-tax impact of these two items on earnings in the third quarter of 2012 approximated $0.05 per share. Earnings per share in the third quarter of 2011 included a $12.7 million, or $0.08 per share after tax, loss on early extinguishment of debt that resulted from the optional redemption of a portion of the Company's then-outstanding 10.75% Senior Notes due 2016. The Company's basic and diluted earnings per share were the same for both periods.
  • Cash flows provided by operating activities were $302.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, compared to $213.2 million for the same period of 2011. This increase was primarily due to increased net operating revenues, improved operating leverage, and a decrease in interest expense. Cash flows provided by operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 included $26.9 million related to the premium paid in conjunction with the redemption of the Company's 10.75% Senior Notes and a $15.8 million decrease in the liability associated with refunds due patients and other third-party payors. The decrease in this liability primarily related to payments associated with previously disclosed settlements related to audits of unclaimed property.
  • Adjusted EBITDA (see attached supplemental information) for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $125.2 million compared to $110.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011, or an increase of 13.3%. This improvement was primarily driven by continued revenue growth as well as improved operating leverage and labor productivity.
  • Adjusted free cash flow (see attached supplemental information) for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $71.6 million compared to $32.3 million for the same period of 2011. Increases to adjusted free cash flow resulted from continued Adjusted EBITDA growth, the timing of interest and payroll payments, and lower interest expense offset by the planned increase in maintenance capital expenditures including investments in the Company's electronic clinical information system and hospital refresh projects.

"During the quarter, we took advantage of the favorable conditions available to us in the fixed income market and issued $275 million of senior unsecured notes maturing in 2024 carrying a coupon of 5.75%," said Doug Coltharp, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of HealthSouth. "We utilized a portion of the proceeds to fund an optional redemption of 10% of each of our existing senior unsecured notes maturing in 2018 and 2022 and to pay down the outstanding balance on our revolving credit facility. These transactions further enhance our liquidity and the flexibility of our capital structure, and we remain confident we will be presented with compelling near-term opportunities to offset any residual dilution associated with the new notes offering."

Consolidation of St. Vincent Rehabilitation Hospital

During the third quarter of 2012, the Company negotiated with its partner to amend the joint venture agreement related to St. Vincent Rehabilitation Hospital which resulted in a change in accounting for this hospital from the equity method of accounting to a consolidated entity. The amendment revised certain participatory rights held by the Company's joint venture partner resulting in HealthSouth gaining control of this entity from an accounting perspective. As a result of the consolidation of this hospital and the remeasurement of the Company's previously held equity interest at fair value, the Company recorded a $4.9 million gain as part of other income during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012. See the attached supplemental schedule for additional information.

2012 Guidance

Adjusted EBITDA and earnings per share in the fourth quarter of 2012 will be impacted by the Company's decision to replace its 2012 merit increase with a one-time, merit-based, year-end bonus to be paid in December 2012 to all eligible non-management employees. The Company did this to reward its non-management employees for their performance in 2012 while not carrying the additional costs associated with a merit increase into 2013 and beyond where the Company faces the impact of sequestration and the risk of potential additional Medicare reimbursement reductions. The Company expects salaries and benefits to increase by approximately $11 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 as a result of this special bonus. This bonus is approximately $5.5 million more than included in the Company's previous 2012 guidance estimates that assumed a 2.25% merit increase for all non-management employees effective October 1, 2012.

Based on its year-to-date results and including the impact of the bonus to be paid to non-management employees in December 2012, the Company is:

  • narrowing its full-year 2012 Adjusted EBITDA guidance to a range of $490 million to $495 million from a range of $487 million to $495 million.
  • raising its full-year 2012 guidance for income from continuing operations attributable to HealthSouth per share to a range of $1.49 to $1.53 per share from a range of $1.45 to $1.50 per share.
