Will they file the Q before the CC? God forbid that the investors or analysts actually have the benefit of reading the financial statements before the call.Prediction: Press release, CC, with tight and selective control over real data. Heavy emphasis on "Adjusted Ebitda", whatever that is, and the Q filed with minimal information after the dust settles.
How about a 300 million payment for settlement? Pay off debt at 10% = 30 million to the bottom line or .30/share500 mil = .50/share750 mil = .75/share yearly earnings boost.
Your talking a decade plus. Nice try on the NOL issue.
Agreed - Ebitda is the valuation metric, so taxes would not be considered anyway. The settlement is a one-time kiss so there is no multiple to be applied to it, and my guess is that will be alot less than people expect and take alot longer to collect.
And another thing to consider.....the earnings will get a 33% corporate income tax haircut once the NOL's run out...yes, it will be many years from now, but something the long-term investor needs to consider....-Risky
I think the 10Q will be released after market this afternoon, and then the call will be in the morning pre-market....at least that's the way they have done it the past several quarters.....-Risky
Hope so. Quick look shows $25.2 million in cash provided by operations for the quarter.They had a gain on a rate swap of $28.5 million so that accounted for 65% of Q2 net income.Cash is actually down a little, $125 million at the end of Q1 vs. $114 end of Q2.Looks like all of the stock sale proceeds went to the lenders. No surprise there.They actually have one less hospital and one less outpatient center than year end, and labor costs are now over 51% (ouch!).But hey, these guys can spin. Probably up tomorrow.
