AdaptHealth Corp. Announces Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results for its AdaptHealth Holdings LLC Subsidiary

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

AdaptHealth Corp. (NASDAQ: AHCO; AHCOW) (the “Company”), the third largest provider of home medical equipment (“HME”) in the United States, today announced financial results for its subsidiary, AdaptHealth Holdings LLC (“AdaptHealth Holdings”), for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019.

AdaptHealth Corp. reported the results of AdaptHealth Holdings without giving effect to the impact of the consummation of the Company’s acquisition of AdaptHealth Holdings on November 8, 2019 (the “Business Combination”), although results for the 2019 periods include certain expenses related to the transaction.

AdaptHealth Holdings’ Third Quarter 2019 Financial Highlights Compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2018

  • Net revenue less provision for doubtful accounts increased 33.6% to $136.5 million:
    • net sales revenue grew 44.5% to $83.1 million.
    • net revenue from fixed monthly equipment reimbursements rose 19.5% to $53.4 million
  • Net loss equaled $3.1 million compared to net income of $12.7 million in the prior year period. Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2019 included $8.2 million of costs and non-cash charges consisting of:
    • $5.3 million of transaction costs related to acquisitions and the Business Combination; and
    • a $2.9 million non-cash charge to interest expense representing the change in fair value of AdaptHealth Holdings’ interest rate swaps. During the third quarter of 2019, AdaptHealth Holdings designated its interest rate swaps as effective cash flow hedges, and accordingly, changes in the fair value of the swaps in future periods will be recorded as a component of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income within Equity rather than as Interest Expense.
  • Net income for the three months ended September 30, 2018 included a non-cash income tax benefit of $5.0 million related to the reversal of a valuation allowance on AdaptHealth Holdings’ deferred income tax assets.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased 25.3% to $31.7 million.
  • Adjusted EBITDA Less Patient Equipment Capex grew 26.3% to $18.7 million. As a percentage of revenue, EBITDA Less Patient Equipment Capex was 13.7 % compared to 14.5% in the prior year period. Acquisition activity tends to reduce AdaptHealth Holdings’ margin and cash flow in the short term as it purchases inventory and fixed assets for newly acquired businesses while transitioning them to its platform.

Acquisitions Update

During the three months ended September 30, 2019, AdaptHealth Holdings consummated three HME acquisitions, and has consummated an additional three HME transactions since October 1, 2019. In the aggregate, AdaptHealth Holdings expects the completed HME transactions to generate annual net revenues of approximately $58 million.

CEO Commentary

Luke McGee, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are very pleased with AdaptHealth Holdings’ year-to-date 2019 financial results, which included significant increases in revenue and Adjusted EBITDA that demonstrate the successful execution of our strategy to grow organically and through accretive acquisitions. The third quarter of 2019 represented the best quarter in our history in terms of Net revenues, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Less Patient Equipment Capex.

“Our team has been heavily focused on acquisition integration and I am confident these efforts will be fruitful in Q4’19 and 2020. We are affirming the Company’s previously reported expectation that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Less Patient Equipment Capex for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 will approximate $75 million and $123 million, respectively. Our potential acquisition pipeline is more robust than it has been at any point in the last three years, and we are truly excited about executing on these opportunities.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release presents AdaptHealth Holdings LLC’s EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018. AdaptHealth Holdings uses EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex, which are financial measures that are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or U.S. GAAP, to analyze its financial results and believes that it is useful to investors, as a supplement to U.S. GAAP measures. Under AdaptHealth Holdings’ existing credit agreement, its ability to engage in activities such as incurring additional indebtedness and making investments is governed, in part, by its ability to satisfy tests based on EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex.

AdaptHealth Holdings defines EBITDA as net income (loss) attributable to AdaptHealth Holdings LLC, plus net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interest, plus interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization and loss from discontinued operations, net of tax.

AdaptHealth Holdings defines Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA (as defined above), plus loss on extinguishment from debt, equity‑based compensation, transaction costs, severance, and certain other non‑recurring expenses.

AdaptHealth Holdings defines Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex as Adjusted EBITDA (as defined above) less patient equipment acquired during the period without regard to whether the equipment was purchased or financed through lease transactions.

AdaptHealth Holdings presents Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex because it believes this measure is useful to investors in evaluating AdaptHealth Holdings’ financial performance. AdaptHealth Holdings’ business requires significant investment in equipment purchases to maintain its patient equipment inventory. Some equipment title transfers to patients’ ownership after a prescribed number of fixed monthly payments. Equipment that does not transfer wears out or oftentimes is not recovered after a patient’s use of the equipment terminates.

AdaptHealth Holdings uses the Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex metric internally in the following ways:

  • All incentive compensation plans that have a profitability component use Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex as the relevant profitability measure;
  • AdaptHealth Holdings evaluates acquisition opportunities using Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex as the metric and most contingent consideration arrangements are based on this metric; and
  • AdaptHealth Holdings’ debt agreements contain covenants that use a variation of Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex for purposes of determining debt covenant compliance.

For purposes of this metric, patient equipment capital expenditures are measured as the value of the patient equipment received during the accounting period without regard to whether the equipment is purchased or financed through lease transactions.

EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex should not be considered as measures of financial performance under U.S. GAAP, and the items excluded from EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Both key business metrics have limitations as an analytical tool. Some of these limitations are:

  • they do not reflect AdaptHealth Holdings’ cash expenditures, future requirements for capital expenditures or contractual commitments;
  • they do not reflect changes in, or cash requirements for, AdaptHealth Holdings’ working capital needs;
  • they do not reflect significant interest expense, or the cash requirements necessary to service interest or principal payments on AdaptHealth Holdings’ debts; although depreciation and amortization are non‑cash charges, the 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;
  • Stock‑based compensation is and will remain a key element of AdaptHealth Holdings’ overall long‑term incentive compensation package, although AdaptHealth Holdings excludes it as an expense when evaluating its ongoing operating performance for a particular period; and
  • they do not reflect the impact of certain cash charges resulting from matters AdaptHealth Holdings considers not to be indicative of its ongoing operations; and other companies in AdaptHealth Holdings’ industry may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently than AdaptHealth Holdings does, limiting its usefulness as a comparative measure.

Because of these limitations, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other performance measures derived in accordance with U.S. GAAP or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of AdaptHealth Holdings’ liquidity.

The following unaudited table presents the reconciliation of net income (loss) attributable to AdaptHealth Holdings Holdings LLC, to EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA less Patient Equipment Capex for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018:
