Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter Highlights

  • Net revenue increased 17.9% to $544.8 million over the prior year fourth quarter
  • Net earnings attributable to Team Health Holdings Inc. ("Net earnings") were $14.8 million; $26.8 million after adjustments
  • Diluted net earnings per share of $0.21; Adjusted EPS of $0.39
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 23.2% to $54.1 million
  • Excluding any potential benefit from Medicaid parity, 2013 net revenue growth is projected to be between 13.0% to 14.0%

Team Health Holdings Inc. ("TeamHealth") (NYSE: TMH), one of the largest providers of outsourced physician staffing solutions for hospitals in the United States, today announced results for its fourth quarter and full fiscal year of 2012.

"We are pleased with our financial results during the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2012. During the quarter, we once again delivered solid growth across revenue, operating earnings, operating cash flow, and Adjusted EBITDA, while improving Adjusted EBITDA margin over the prior year period. As a result of this strong operating performance in the fourth quarter, we surpassed our fiscal year 2012 financial targets, delivering 18.5% revenue growth and 10.5% Adjusted EBITDA margin," said TeamHealth President and Chief Executive Officer, Greg Roth.

"Our success in 2012 demonstrates the consistency of our balanced and integrated approach to achieving our financial goals. All of our growth drivers, which include same contract, acquisitions and net contract growth, substantially contributed to our revenue increase. For the quarter, acquisitions continued to play the largest component of our consolidated revenue growth, as we benefited primarily from acquisitions closed during the previous quarters of 2012. Same contract growth was the second largest contributor over the quarter, driven by strong fee for service volume growth, while increases in estimated collections per visit were limited. Net new contracts solidly contributed to growth during the quarter, while achieving some modest margin improvement from the prior year period. Increased operating cash flow provided a source of internal financing for the accelerated pace of acquisition growth during 2012.  As we move into 2013, we remain well positioned with a solid acquisition pipeline, as evidenced by the recently announced ED transaction in the Phoenix market, and strong growth opportunities for both same contract and net new contract sales and a balance sheet and capital structure that is well positioned to provide liquidity and support to these growth initiatives.   As such, for 2013 we expect to deliver annual net revenue growth of between 13% and 14% and project Adjusted EBITDA margin for the full year of 2013 to be around 10.5%.   There continues to be a great deal of uncertainty around the criteria for physician participation and the potential benefits from Medicaid parity as CMS and the states develop the program and provider eligibility regulations.  As a result, at this time we are not in a position to provide formal guidance on the expected financial benefit in 2013 for this program.  While healthcare reform remains a dynamic topic, we believe our business is well positioned to succeed in this new operating environment," concluded Mr. Roth.

Lynn Massingale, M.D., Executive Chairman of TeamHealth, added, "We are pleased with our successful execution of our growth plan in 2012 and we look forward to delivering strong operating and financial performance in 2013.  We continue to utilize our national infrastructure and strong physician leadership to drive operational improvements across our growing network of high quality affiliated providers, while making investments in patient safety, risk management, operational efficiency and customer satisfaction.  We remain dedicated to delivering the highest quality of patient care and our proprietary information technology systems and infrastructure investments enable us to help hospitals drive patient safety, operational efficiency and customer satisfaction goals."

Fiscal 2012 Fourth Quarter Results

Net revenue increased 17.9% to $544.8 million from $462.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Acquisitions contributed 10.9%, same contracts contributed 3.8% and new contracts, net of terminations, contributed 3.2% of the increase in quarter-over-quarter growth in net revenue.

Same contract revenue increased $17.7 million, or 4.1%, to $448.1 million from $430.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.  Same contract fee for service volume growth was 5.5%, which was impacted by the emergence of an earlier and more severe flu season during December.  Estimated collections on fee for service visits were flat between quarters due to a lower contribution from acuity increases and a more adverse same contract payer mix in the fourth quarter of 2012.  Contract and other revenue constrained same contract revenue growth between quarters by 0.1% due primarily to contract revenue reductions in the anesthesia and military divisions.  Acquisitions contributed $50.2 million of revenue growth and net new contract revenue increased by $14.9 million between quarters.

Reported net earnings were $14.8 million, or $0.21 diluted net earnings per share, compared to net earnings of $13.3 million, or $0.20 diluted net earnings per share, in the fourth quarter of 2011.  The financial results for the fourth quarter of 2012 included $10.7 million ($6.6 million after-tax) of contingent purchase compensation expense, non-cash amortization expense of $8.3 million ($5.3 million after tax) and a loss on the refinancing of debt of $0.2 million ($0.1 million after-tax).  Excluding these items, net earnings for the fourth quarter of 2012 would have been $26.8 million and Adjusted EPS would have been $0.39 per share.  Financial results for the fourth quarter of 2011 included $5.8 million of contingent purchase compensation expense ($3.5 million after-tax) and non-cash amortization expense of $6.1 million ($3.8 million after-tax).  Excluding these items, net earnings for the fourth quarter of 2011 would have been $20.6 million and Adjusted EPS would have been $0.31 per share.  See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliations" and "Adjusted Earnings Per Share" below for the definition of Adjusted EPS and its reconciliation to net earnings and diluted earnings per share attributable to Team Health Holdings, Inc.

Cash flow provided by operations for the quarter increased to $54.6 million from $43.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.  Included in operating cash flows were contingent purchase payments of $13.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $3.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Excluding the impact of contingent purchase payments cash flows would have been $68.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $47.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.  The $20.9 million increase in operating cash flow (excluding the impact of contingent purchase payments) between quarters was principally the result of an increase in profitability and a decrease in working capital funding requirements. 

Adjusted EBITDA increased 23.2% to $54.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 from $43.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, and Adjusted EBITDA margin was 9.9% compared to 9.5% for the same quarter in 2011. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliations" and "Adjusted EBITDA" below for the definitions of Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EBITDA and its reconciliation to net earnings attributable to Team Health Holdings, Inc.

As of December 31, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $41.2 million and $250.0 million of available borrowings under a revolving credit facility (without giving effect to $6.0 million of undrawn letters of credit). The Company's total outstanding debt was $517.8 million.  The increase in total debt in the fourth quarter of 2012 was $7.3 million, which reflected the increase associated with the amended credit facility and a $123.0 million decrease in outstanding revolver borrowings.

On November 1, 2012, the Company amended and extended its existing credit facility. The amendment increased the Company's existing Term Loan A Facility to $275.0 million from the prior outstanding amount of $140.6 million and increased the borrowing capacity of the Revolving Credit Facility to $250.0 million from the prior $225.0 million.  These increases provided the Company with additional borrowing capacity of $159.4 million.  The maturities of both the Term Loan A Facility and Revolving Credit Facility were extended until November 1, 2017. The Company realized a 50 basis point improvement in pricing on both the Term Loan A and the Revolver with pricing based upon a grid tied to the Company's net leverage ratio, but initially set at LIBOR + 1.75%.  At the time of the amendment, $85.0 million of the net cash proceeds from the increased Term Loan A were used to repay outstanding borrowings under the Revolving Credit Facility with remaining proceeds retained for other future general corporate purposes.  The existing $250.0 million Term Loan B Facility was not subject to the amendment and remains in place with the same terms and conditions.


Fiscal 2012 Full Year Results

Net revenue for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased 18.5% to $2.07 billion from $1.75 billion in fiscal 2011.  Acquisitions contributed 11.0% of the growth, new contracts, net of terminations, contributed 4.0% of the growth and same contract revenue contributed 3.5% of the increase in year over year net revenue.  Same contract revenue for 2012 increased  $61.6 million, or 4.2%, to $1.54 billion from $1.48 billion in 2011.  Fee for service volume growth provided a 2.5% increase in same contract revenue growth as the number of visits increased 3.1% from the same contract volume reported in 2011. Increases in estimated collections on fee for service visits of 2.3% provided a 1.5% increase in same contract revenue growth between years.  Contract and other revenue contributed 0.2% to same contract growth between years. Acquisitions contributed $191.7 million of growth between years while net new contract revenue increased by $70.4 million.

Reported net earnings were $63.8 million in the year ended December 31, 2012, or $0.93 diluted net earnings per share, compared to net earnings of $65.5 million, or $0.98 diluted net earnings per share, in 2011.  The 2012 financial results included $36.9 million ($22.8 million after-tax) of contingent purchase compensation expense, non-cash amortization expense of $29.8 million ($18.9 million after-tax), a loss on the refinancing of debt of $0.2 million ($0.1 million after-tax) and an increase in prior year professional liability loss reserves of $5.2 million ($3.1 million after-tax).  Excluding these items, net earnings for 2012 would have been $108.7 million and Adjusted EPS would have been $1.59 per share.  Financial results for 2011 included $13.6 million of contingent purchase compensation expense ($8.3 million after-tax), non-cash amortization expense of $17.8 million ($11.1 million after-tax), a loss on the refinancing of debt of $6.0 million ($3.6 million after-tax) and an increase in prior year professional liability loss reserves of $5.3 million ($3.2 million after-tax).  Excluding these adjustments, net earnings for 2011 would have been $91.7 million and Adjusted EPS would have been $1.38 per share.  See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliations" and "Adjusted Earnings Per Share" below for the definition of Adjusted EPS and its reconciliation to net earnings and diluted earnings per share attributable to Team Health Holdings, Inc.

Cash flow provided by operations for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $78.2 million compared to $98.8 million in 2011.  Included in operating cash flows were contingent purchase payments of $31.4 million in 2012 and $15.5 million in 2011. Also included in operating cash flows in 2012 were $37.3 million in premium payments related to the loss portfolio transfer in the third quarter. Excluding the impact of contingent purchase and loss transfer payments, operating cash flows in 2012 would have been $146.8 million compared to $114.3 million in 2011, an increase of $32.5 million.

Adjusted EBITDA for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased to $218.2 million from $188.5 million for 2011, and Adjusted EBITDA margin was 10.5% compared to 10.8% for 2011. See "Non-GAAP Financial Measures Reconciliation" and "Adjusted EBITDA" below for the definitions of Adjusted EBITDA Margin and Adjusted EBITDA and its reconciliation to net earnings attributable to Team Health Holdings, Inc.

Team Health Holdings, Inc.

Adjusted EBITDA

We present Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure of our performance. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net earnings attributable to Team Health Holdings, Inc. before interest expense, taxes, depreciation and amortization, as further adjusted to exclude the non-cash items and the other adjustments shown in the table below. We present Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it assists investors and analysts in comparing our performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance or liquidity under generally accepted accounting principles. In evaluating our performance as measured by Adjusted EBITDA, management recognizes and considers the limitations of this measure. Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect certain cash expenses that we are obligated to make, and although depreciation and amortizations are non-cash charges, assets being depreciated and amortized will often have to be replaced in the future, and Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect any cash requirements for such replacements. In addition, other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than we do or may not calculate it at all, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. Because of these limitations, Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities, or any other measure calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

The following table sets forth a reconciliation of net earnings attributable to Team Health Holdings, Inc. to Adjusted EBITDA.

Team Health Holdings, Inc.

Adjusted Earnings Per Share

(in thousands, except per share data)

We present Adjusted earnings per share attributable to Team Health Holdings, Inc. ("Adjusted EPS") as a supplemental measure of our performance.  We define Adjusted EPS as diluted earnings per share excluding non-cash and other adjustments, including the impact of contingent purchase compensation expense and amortization expense relating to purchase accounting for historical acquisitions. We present Adjusted EPS because we believe that it assists investors in understanding the impact of acquisition-related costs on our earnings per share and comparing our performance across operating periods on a consistent basis and provides additional insight into our core earnings performance.  Adjusted EPS is not a measurement of financial performance or liquidity under generally accepted accounting principles. In evaluating our performance as measured by Adjusted EPS, management recognizes and considers the limitations of this measure. Adjusted EPS does not reflect certain cash expenses that we are obligated to make, and although contingent purchase compensation expense and amortization expense are non-cash charges in the period reported, such charges reflect historical or future cash payments in conjunction with our acquisition transactions. In addition, other companies in our industry may calculate Adjusted EPS differently than we do or may not calculate it at all, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure. Because of these limitations, Adjusted EPS should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating income, basic and diluted earnings per share, cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities, or any other measure calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

The following tables set forth a reconciliation of diluted earnings per share to Adjusted EPS (note that some totals may not add due to rounding).
