Revenue Grows 8.2% Including Same Facility Revenue Growth of 7.4%

Company Completed Debt Refinancing Actions in March 2021

Acadia Healthcare Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: ACHC) today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

First Quarter 2021 Results

The Company reported revenue of $551.2 million for the first quarter of 2021, compared with $509.2 million for the first quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA was $119.5 million, compared with $96.7 million for the same period last year. Net income attributable to Acadia stockholders for the first quarter of 2021 was $9.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared with net income of $33.5 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2020. Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to Acadia stockholders per diluted share was $0.47 for the first quarter of 2021. Adjustments to income include transaction-related expenses, debt extinguishment costs and the income tax effect of adjustments to income. A reconciliation of all non-GAAP financial results in this press release begins on page 9. The Company closed on the sale of Acadia’s business operations in the United Kingdom on January 19, 2021. The results of the U.K. business have been presented as discontinued operations for all periods in this release.

The Company’s income tax provision includes a tax benefit of $1.7 million and tax expense of $0.3 million for the first quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively, attributable to the difference in the actual deductible amount relating to employee stock-based compensation and the previously estimated tax deduction based on grant date values. This difference is reflected in the effective tax rate but has been excluded from the adjusted tax rate for all periods.

For the first quarter of 2021, Acadia’s same facility revenue increased 7.4% compared with the first quarter of 2020, including an increase in revenue per patient day of 4.5% and an increase in patient days of 2.7%. Same facility adjusted EBITDA margin improved 280 basis points to 26.5%.

Debbie Osteen, Chief Executive Officer of Acadia Healthcare Company, remarked, "We are pleased to report a strong start to 2021 for Acadia with solid financial and operating performance. These results demonstrate consistent execution of our growth strategy, as well as strong cost management in the face of the resurgence of COVID-19 and one less day in the 2021 period due to leap year in 2020. We are proud of the hard work and dedication of Acadia’s employees and clinicians across our operations who have continued to meet the critical demand for our services and provide the highest quality care in a safe and accessible manner.

Strategic Investments in Long-Term Growth

"During the first quarter of 2021, we continued to make investments in key strategic areas that will support sustained, long-term growth across Acadia’s service lines. Facility expansions remain a primary focus for our growth strategy. Accordingly, we added 92 beds to our operations in the first quarter to meet the growing demand for services across the U.S. We also continue to identify underserved markets for the treatment of patients with opioid use disorder and opened two comprehensive treatment centers (CTCs) in the first quarter of 2021 on track to open 11 new CTCs in 2021.

"Following the end of the first quarter, we executed on another priority for our continued growth by completing construction of a wholly owned de novo facility, Glenwood Behavioral Health Hospital, an 80-bed hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio. This facility will provide inpatient psychiatric treatment for those who are struggling with a mental health or substance use disorder. We expect this facility to be fully operational during the second quarter of 2021.

"Establishing joint venture partnerships with healthcare delivery systems across the country remains an important pathway for growth for Acadia, and we have been fortunate to partner with many leading providers in attractive markets. In March, we were pleased to announce a planned joint venture with Lutheran Health Network of Indiana, one of Indiana’s premier, integrated healthcare delivery systems, for a new 120-bed behavioral health hospital serving Fort Wayne and the surrounding counties. The new hospital, slated to open in spring 2022, will provide a full continuum of inpatient and outpatient care services. We also announced a planned joint venture with Geisinger Health, one of Pennsylvania’s premier, integrated healthcare systems. The new partnership will build two new 96-bed behavioral health facilities providing comprehensive inpatient services in the central and northeastern regions of the state. The first facility is expected to open in 2022 and the second in 2023. Both the Lutheran Health and Geisinger Health partnerships will leverage our combined expertise and resources with a shared commitment to provide quality care and achieve strong clinical outcomes. We will continue to pursue additional joint venture partnerships to expand behavioral health treatment options and enable greater access to care in more communities.

"During the first quarter, we also signed a definitive agreement to acquire Vallejo Behavioral, a 61-bed psychiatric hospital in Vallejo, California, from Adventist Health. Following regulatory approval, the transaction is expected to be completed during the summer. We are excited to add this facility to our portfolio, and we will continue to identify additional acquisitions that meet our criteria.

"We believe there are significant opportunities to leverage our strong financial position and execute our growth initiatives by extending our market reach through bed expansions, wholly owned de novo facilities, strategic joint ventures and acquisitions," added Osteen.

Debt Refinancing, Cash and Liquidity

In March 2021, the Company completed its planned debt repayment and refinancing following the completion of the U.K. sale in January. The Company entered into a new credit agreement, which provides for a $600 million senior secured revolving credit facility and a $425 million senior secured term loan facility, each maturing in March 2026. With the completion of this transaction, Acadia’s outstanding debt includes the following:

As of March 31, 2021, the Company had $179 million in cash and cash equivalents, $422 million available under its $600 million revolving credit facility, and its net leverage ratio was approximately 2.7x.

Osteen stated, "During the first quarter, we met our stated financial objective to refinance our outstanding debt as planned and improve Acadia’s leverage profile. As a result, our balance sheet is very strong with ample liquidity and capital to pursue our growth initiatives and continue to make strategic investments in our business."

Financial Guidance

Acadia today increased the Company’s financial guidance for 2021, as follows:

  • Revenue in a range of $2.24 billion to $2.29 billion;

  • Adjusted EBITDA in a range of $500 million to $530 million;

  • Adjusted earnings per diluted share in a range of $2.30 to $2.55; and

  • Interest expense of approximately $17 million per quarter for the remainder of 2021.

The Company’s guidance does not include discontinued operations or the impact of any future acquisitions, divestitures or transaction-related expenses.

Looking Ahead

Osteen concluded, "We are pleased with the trends in our business and look forward to the opportunities ahead for Acadia in 2021. While there are uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we expect the effects of the prolonged isolation, the social and economic disruptions, and grief over the loss of lives this past year will remain a challenge for many individuals. As a result, we expect to see continued strong demand for our services in 2021 and beyond. More than ever, we are dedicated to our mission, and we understand the importance of our role as a leading provider of critical behavioral healthcare services. We believe Acadia is well positioned to address the needs of those seeking treatment as we continue to expand our network of treatment facilities and service offerings with a shared commitment across our operations to deliver the highest quality of patient care."

Conference Call

Acadia will hold a conference call to discuss its first quarter financial results at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Friday, April 30, 2021. A live webcast of the conference call will be available at www.acadiahealthcare.com in the "Investors" section of the website. The webcast of the conference call will be available through May 28, 2021.

Generally, words such as "may," "will," "should," "could," "anticipate," "expect," "intend," "estimate," "plan," "continue," and "believe" or the negative of or other variation on these and other similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are made only as of the date of this press release.

Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and involve risks and uncertainties and our future results could differ significantly from those expressed or implied by our forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause actual results to differ materially include, without limitation, (i) the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, including, without limitation, disruption to the U.S. economy and financial markets; reduced admissions and patient volumes; increased costs relating to labor, supply chain and other expenditures; and difficulty in collecting patient accounts receivable due to increases in the unemployment rate and the number of underinsured and uninsured patients; (ii) potential difficulties in successfully integrating the operations of acquired facilities or realizing the expected benefits and synergies of our acquisitions, joint ventures and de novo transactions; (iii) Acadia’s ability to add beds, expand services, enhance marketing programs and improve efficiencies at its facilities; (iv) potential reductions in payments received by Acadia from government and third-party payors; (v) the occurrence of patient incidents, governmental investigations, litigation and adverse regulatory actions, which could adversely affect the price of our common stock and result in substantial payments and incremental regulatory burdens; (vi) the risk that Acadia may not generate sufficient cash from operations to service its debt and meet its working capital and capital expenditure requirements; and (vii) potential operating difficulties, labor costs, client preferences, changes in competition and general economic or industry conditions that may prevent Acadia from realizing the expected benefits of its business strategies. These factors and others are more fully described in Acadia’s periodic reports and other filings with the SEC.

Interest expense, which has been significantly reduced following debt repayments in the first quarter of 2021, is recorded in income from continuing operations and not allocated to discontinued operations because such allocation would not be meaningful. Therefore, Adjusted income from discontinued operations before income taxes is not included in Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to Acadia Healthcare Company, Inc. per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

We define Adjusted income from continuing operations before income taxes attributable to Acadia Healthcare Company, Inc. as net income adjusted for loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes, transaction-related expenses, debt extinguishment costs, provision for income taxes and income tax effect of adjustments to income.

The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein are supplemental measures of our performance and are not required by, or presented in accordance with, generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). The non-GAAP financial measures presented herein are not measures of our financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered as alternatives to net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with GAAP or as an alternative to cash flow from operating activities as measures of our liquidity. Our measurements of these non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. We have included information concerning the non-GAAP financial measures in this press release because we believe that such information is used by certain investors as measures of a company’s historical performance. We believe these measures are frequently used by securities analysts, investors and other interested parties in the evaluation of issuers of equity securities, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures when reporting their results. Because the non-GAAP financial measures are not measurements determined in accordance with GAAP and are thus susceptible to varying calculations, the non-GAAP financial measures, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Our presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items.

(b) Represents transaction-related expenses incurred by Acadia primarily related to termination, restructuring, strategic review, acquisition and other similar costs.

(c) Represents debt extinguishment costs recorded during the three months ended March 31, 2021 in connection with the redemption of the 5.625% Senior Notes and 6.500% Senior Notes and the termination of the Prior Credit Facility.
