LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 4, 2016-- Kindred Healthcare, Inc. (“Kindred” or the “Company”) (NYSE:KND) today announced its operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Benjamin A. Breier, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “We are pleased to report a solid second quarter with results at the high end of our expectations. Notably, our Kindred at Home (“KAH”) and Kindred Hospital Rehabilitation Services (“KHRS”) businesses both achieved strong sequential and year-over-year volume growth and operating performance. Our Hospital Division increased same-facility admissions and same-facility patient days and delivered stable second quarter results in line with our expectations. We are pleased that the Hospital Division’s performance has continued its significant improvement from the operating trends experienced in the second half of 2015. Solid execution remains our top priority across the Company as we drive effective patient-centered care solutions and adapt to a changing regulatory and operating environment. As always, I thank Kindred’s 102,000 teammates for the exceptional care, hope and dignity that they provide to more than one million patients we see at Kindred each year.”

All financial and statistical information included in this press release reflects the continuing operations of the Company’s businesses for all periods presented unless otherwise indicated.

Second Quarter Consolidated Highlights(1):

  • Consolidated revenues were $1.84 billion, a 0.5% year-over-year increase, while GAAP income from continuing operations increased 2% to $34.4 million from $33.7 million in the same period in 2015. Core EBITDAR increased 2.3% to $267.9 million compared to $261.8 million in the same period in 2015. The increase in GAAP income from continuing operations and core EBITDAR are both due primarily to revenue growth and operating margin improvement in the KAH and KHRS businesses.
  • GAAP operating cash flows increased to $135.1 million compared to $100.4 million for the same period a year ago. Core operating cash flows were $126.4 million compared to core operating cash flows of $97.7 million for the same period a year ago. Core free cash flows were $83.5 million compared to core free cash flows of $63.1 million in the same period a year ago.

____________

(1) See reconciliation of generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) results to non-GAAP results beginning on page 12. As used herein, “EBITDAR” means earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent.
 

Second Quarter Consolidated Highlights(1): (Continued)

  • GAAP diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) from continuing operations was $0.23 and core diluted EPS from continuing operations was $0.38 based upon 87.5 million weighted average diluted shares. In the same period a year ago, the Company reported GAAP diluted EPS of $0.25, while core diluted EPS was $0.39 based upon 86.4 million weighted average diluted shares. GAAP diluted EPS in the second quarter of 2016 includes $17.7 million ($13.2 million net of income taxes of $3.5 million and noncontrolling interests of $1.0 million) or $0.15 per diluted share of charges related to property and intangible asset impairments, litigation, transaction, integration, research and development, debt amendment, and other restructuring costs, and a gain on facility swap. GAAP diluted EPS in the second quarter of 2015 includes $13.4 million ($12.1 million net of income taxes of $1.3 million) or $0.14 per diluted share of charges related to transaction, integration, litigation, and other restructuring costs.
  • The Kindred Board of Directors declared a cash dividend of $0.12 per share on the Company’s common stock payable on September 2, 2016 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 18, 2016.

Second Quarter Segment Highlights(1)(2):

KAH second quarter revenues increased 3% over the prior year period to $624.2 million with home health episodic admissions growing 3.5% and hospice average daily census growing 4% compared to the same period last year. Segment EBITDAR (GAAP) for KAH increased 8.6% to $107.0 million as compared to $98.6 million in the prior year period and core EBITDAR increased 6.3% to $107.2 million compared to $100.8 million a year ago. These results were achieved despite a 10% net reduction in home health branches and an 8.3% net reduction in hospice branches since the beginning of 2015, primarily from branch consolidations. Average home health revenue per branch grew 12.6% and average hospice revenue per branch grew 6.1% during the last twelve months compared to a year ago.

Kindred’s Hospital Division second quarter revenues increased 1.0% over the prior year period to $633.7 million, as a result of a 1% increase in revenues per patient day compared to the same period last year. Same-hospital admissions were up 0.3% during the quarter and same-hospital patient days were up 1.4%. Segment EBITDAR (GAAP) in the Hospital Division for the second quarter decreased 3.3% to $126.6 million from $131.0 million a year ago and core EBITDAR for the second quarter decreased 4.3% to $125.9 million from $131.5 million a year ago as operating expenses per patient day increased 2% in the second quarter compared to a year ago.

Kindred Rehabilitation Services Division second quarter revenues declined 6.0% to $365.9 million, while both segment EBITDAR (GAAP) and core EBITDAR increased 7.6% to $63.7 million compared to $59.2 million in the same period last year. Strong performance in the second quarter from KHRS freestanding inpatient rehabilitation hospitals (“IRFs”) was offset by the impact of previously reported contract losses in RehabCare that occurred primarily in the first half of 2015. The KHRS segment achieved strong revenue growth of 11.3%, and both segment EBITDAR (GAAP) and core EBITDAR grew 13.3% compared to the same period a year ago, with IRF same-hospital discharges growing 4.1% during the quarter. RehabCare revenues declined 17.2% to $196.1 million from a year ago, while segment EBITDAR (GAAP), core EBITDAR and operating margins continued to stabilize in the second quarter. RehabCare second quarter segment and core EBITDAR increased to $13.3 million from $12.0 million and operating margins increased to 6.8% from 5.9%, both compared to the first quarter of 2016.

Kindred’s Nursing Center Division second quarter revenues declined 0.5% to $272.4 million compared to the same period last year. Segment EBITDAR (GAAP) decreased 25.6% to $29.7 million and core EBITDAR decreased 16.8% to $33.7 million, each the result of a 1.2% decline in average daily census, start-up losses of $1 million at two newly opened transitional care centers, higher contract labor costs, and for segment EBITDAR (GAAP), $4.0 million of facility closure and restructuring costs.

2016 Outlook

All forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures contained in this section “2016 Outlook” are provided only on a non-GAAP basis. This is due to the inherent difficulty of forecasting the timing or amount of items that would be included in the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP financial measures. As a result, reconciliation of the forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to GAAP financial measures is not available without unreasonable effort and the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information.

The Company’s outlook does not reflect the potential impact of the previously announced definitive agreement to sell 12 long-term acute care (“LTAC”) hospitals to Curahealth, LLC (“Curahealth”). The Company will make the appropriate adjustments following the closing of the transaction.

The Company’s outlook also excludes transaction costs, the effect of any reimbursement changes, debt refinancing costs, severance, retirement, retention, restructuring costs, litigation and related contingency expense, integration costs, business interruption settlements, a gain on swap of facilities, research and development, any further acquisitions or divestitures, any impairment charges, any further issuances of common stock or any repurchases of common stock.

Kindred today reaffirmed its outlook for 2016. Kindred expects:

  • Annual revenues of approximately $7.250 billion, with a range of $7.2 billion to $7.3 billion
  • Core EBITDAR of approximately $990 million, with a range of $970 million to $1.010 billion
  • Core diluted EPS from continuing operations of approximately $0.90, with a range of $0.80 to $1.00(1)

Following the Securities and Exchange Commission’s recently updated Compliance and Disclosure Interpretations on the use of non-GAAP financial measures, the Company has discontinued reporting adjusted core diluted EPS from continuing operations.

For the third quarter of 2016, the Company expects core EBITDAR to approximate $220 million to $235 million and core diluted EPS from continuing operations to approximate $0.02 to $0.12.

Additionally, Kindred reaffirmed its preliminary outlook for 2017 core EBITDAR of at least $1 billion.

Mr. Breier commented, “We continue our efforts to grow our home health, hospice and inpatient rehabilitation businesses through organic growth, acquisitions and new joint venture arrangements and we remain enthusiastic about the growth opportunities in these businesses. We also remain focused on our preparations for LTAC patient criteria and related mitigation initiatives, including the ongoing optimization of our LTAC hospital portfolio. Our previously announced transaction with Curahealth and our facility swap transaction with Select Medical Holdings Corporation (NYSE:SEM) reflect our commitment to this strategy. We believe our diversified portfolio of assets, coordinated over an episode of care, with the key enablers we have developed, continue to put Kindred in a unique position to become the Post-Acute Benefits Management leader in the many markets we now serve.”

Stephen D. Farber, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Kindred, added, “We are very pleased with our strong second quarter cash flow performance that was in line with our expectations, and coupled with our recent financing, enabled us to end the quarter with excellent liquidity, with approximately $59 million drawn on our $900 million asset-based revolving credit facility. We continue to expect to generate roughly $300 million per year in core operating cash flows and approximately half of that amount in core free cash flows.”

Cash Dividend

The Company announced that its Board of Directors has approved the payment of a cash dividend of $0.12 per share of common stock to be paid on September 2, 2016 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on August 18, 2016.

____________

(1) The EPS estimate is based upon an estimated weighted average annual diluted share count for 2016 of 88 million shares.

Forward-Looking Statements

This earnings release includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, all statements regarding the Company’s expected future financial position, results of operations, cash flows, dividends, financing plans, business strategy, budgets, capital expenditures, competitive positions, growth opportunities, plans and objectives of management, government investigations, regulatory matters, and statements containing the words such as “anticipate,” “approximate,” “believe,” “plan,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “will,” “intend,” “may,” “potential,” “upside,” and other similar expressions. Statements in this earnings release concerning the Company’s business outlook or future economic performance, anticipated profitability, revenues, expenses, dividends or other financial items, product or services line growth, and expected outcome of government investigations and other regulatory matters, together with other statements that are not historical facts, are forward-looking statements that are estimates reflecting the best judgment of the Company based upon currently available information.

Such forward-looking statements are inherently uncertain, and stockholders and other potential investors must recognize that actual results may differ materially from the Company’s expectations as a result of a variety of factors. Such forward-looking statements are based upon management’s current expectations and include known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which the Company is unable to predict or control, that may cause the Company’s actual results, performance or plans to differ materially from any future results, performance or plans expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. These statements involve risks, uncertainties and other factors detailed from time to time in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Many of these factors are beyond the Company’s control. The Company cautions investors that any forward-looking statements made by the Company are not guarantees of future performance. The Company disclaims any obligation to update any such factors or to announce publicly the results of any revisions to any of the forward-looking statements to reflect future events or developments.

Non-GAAP Measurements

In addition to the results provided in accordance with GAAP, the Company has provided information in this earnings release to compute certain non-GAAP measures. The use of these non-GAAP measures are not intended to replace the presentation of the Company’s financial results in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included in the following pages of this earnings release.

EBITDAR: The Company defines EBITDAR as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent, and believes that the presentation of EBITDAR is useful to the investors because creditors, securities analysts and investors use EBITDAR as a measure of earnings used to compare the performance of companies in the healthcare industry before consideration of the capital structure of fixed assets and financing costs, which can vary significantly among companies.

For each of the Company’s segments, EBITDAR is a measure of performance used by the Company’s chief operating decision makers in accordance with “Accounting Standard Codification 280—Segment Reporting.” In this context, the Company defines segment EBITDAR as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent, excluding litigation contingency expense, impairment charges, transaction costs and the allocation of support center overhead.

Core Operating Results: The Company calculates core operating results, including core net income attributable to Kindred, core EBITDAR and core diluted EPS, by excluding charges related to transaction, integration, severance, retirement, retention, impairments, business interruption settlements, research and development, restructuring, debt amendment costs, gain on facility swap and litigation. The Company believes that the presentation of core operating results provides additional information to investors to facilitate the comparison between periods by excluding certain charges that are not representative of its ongoing operations due to the materiality and nature of the charges. The Company’s management uses core net income attributable to Kindred, core EBITDAR and core diluted EPS as meaningful measures of operational performance, and for the attainment of internal incentive compensation goals, in addition to other measures. The Company uses these measures to assess the relative performance and attainment of internal incentive compensation goals of its operating divisions, as well as the employees that operate these businesses. In addition, the Company believes these measures are important, because securities analysts and investors use these measures to compare the Company’s performance to other companies in the healthcare industry.

Non-GAAP Measurements (Continued)

Same-Hospital Revenues: The same-hospital revenues are calculated by excluding from the Company's Hospital Division revenues the results from five hospitals acquired in 2016, three hospitals sold in 2016 and two hospitals that closed during 2015. The Company believes the presentation of same-hospital revenues provides investors, equity analysts and others with useful information regarding the performance of the Company's hospital operations that are comparable for the periods presented.

For EBITDAR, core net income attributable to Kindred, and core EBITDAR, the Company believes that income (loss) from continuing operations is the most comparable GAAP measure. For core diluted EPS, the Company believes that GAAP diluted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations is the most comparable GAAP measure. Readers of the Company’s financial information should consider income (loss) from continuing operations and diluted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations as important measures of the Company’s financial performance, because they provide the most complete measures of its performance. For same-hospital revenues, the Company believes that reported hospital segment revenues is the most comparable GAAP measure. Readers of the Company’s financial information should consider reported hospital segment revenues as an important measure of the Company’s Hospital Division financial performance because it provides the most complete measure of its performance. Operating results presented on a core basis, as well as a same-hospital basis, should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures based upon GAAP as an indicator of operating performance.

Also in this earnings release, the Company provides the financial measures of operating cash flows and free cash flows excluding certain items, which the Company refers to as core operating cash flows and core free cash flows, respectively.

Core Operating Cash Flows: The Company defines core operating cash flows as operating cash flows excluding payments related to transaction, severance, retirement, retention, business interruption settlements, restructuring, debt refinancing costs, and fees and litigation, net of income tax benefits. The Company believes that core operating cash flows provide important information to investors for comparability to other companies that use similar measures. Management uses core operating cash flows to evaluate consolidated operating performance and in making decisions related to acquisitions, development capital expenditures, dividends, long-term debt repayments and other uses.

Core Free Cash Flows: The Company defines core free cash flows as operating cash flows excluding payments related to transaction, severance, retirement, retention, business interruption settlements, restructuring, debt refinancing costs, and fees and litigation, net of income tax benefits but including routine capital expenditures and distributions to noncontrolling interests. The Company believes that core free cash flows provide important information to investors for comparability to other companies that use similar measures. Management uses core free cash flows in making decisions related to acquisitions, development capital expenditures, dividends, long-term debt repayments and other uses.

The Company recognizes that core operating cash flows and core free cash flows are non-GAAP measures and are not intended to replace the presentation of the Company’s cash flows in accordance with GAAP. For core operating cash flows and core free cash flows, the Company believes net cash flows provided by operating activities is the most comparable GAAP measure. Readers of the Company’s financial information should consider net cash flows provided by operating activities as an important measure because it provides the most complete measure of cash provided by operating activities. Core operating cash flows and core free cash flows should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures based upon GAAP as an indicator of the Company’s cash flows provided by operating activities.

(In thousands, except per share amounts and statistics)
         
In addition to the results provided in accordance with GAAP, the Company has provided information in this earnings release to compute certain non-GAAP measurements for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015 before certain charges or on a core basis. The charges that were excluded from core operating results are denoted in the tables below.
 
The income tax benefit associated with the excluded charges was calculated using an effective income tax rate of 19.9% and 9.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively, and 26.2% and 21.9% for the six months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. The difference in the effective income tax rate for both periods compared to the same prior year periods is attributable to the composition of charges that are non-deductible for income tax purposes, including the impairment charges and litigation contingency expense.
