LONG BEACH, Calif., August 04, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--agilon health, inc. (NYSE: AGL), the company transforming health care for seniors by empowering primary-care physicians to focus on the entire health of their patients, announced results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 Results:

  • Total revenue of $499 million increased 70% from 2020 and would have increased approximately 58% normalized for retroactive members associated with the first quarter. Total revenue increased 56% year-to-date from 2020.

  • Members of approximately 181,700 as of June 30 increased 45% from 2020.

  • Same geography membership growth of 17% from 2020.

  • Net loss of $299 million, compared to a net loss of $8 million in 2020. Second quarter 2021 results include $275 million in non-cash stock-based compensation expenses primarily related to the IPO.

  • Medical Margin of $55 million, compared to $72 million in 2020. The year-over-year change in Medical Margin in part reflects the impact from COVID on healthcare utilization in the prior year quarter.

  • Adjusted EBITDA of negative $2 million, compared to positive $14 million in 2020.

"agilon’s second quarter results reflect continued momentum across our business. Medicare Advantage membership increased 45% on a year-over-year basis, including 17% growth within Same Geographies. Total members on the platform grew to over 280,000, inclusive of more than 50,000 DCE members that went live in April 2021, and 49,000 Medicare Advantage members being implemented for January 2022. Our performance underscores the flexibility of our platform and strong demand among healthcare stakeholders for primary-care centric delivery models," said Steve Sell, Chief Executive Officer. "During the quarter, we also partnered with 10 organizations including the American Academy of Family Physicians and the American College of Physicians in launching Primary Care for America. Through this collaboration, we will further advance the role of primary-care, which will improve access to comprehensive, proactive healthcare and better outcomes for patients and communities."

The Adjusted EBITDA loss reflected in the full year 2021 outlook is expected to be weighted to the fourth quarter.

We have not reconciled guidance for Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and have not provided forward-looking guidance for net income (loss), because of the uncertainty around certain items that may impact net income (loss), including stock-based compensation, that are not within our control or cannot be reasonably predicted.

Membership Details

Membership as of June 30, 2021, was approximately 181,700, an increase of 45% from 2020. Same geography membership growth increased 17% year-over-year during the second quarter 2021, reflecting broad-based growth across markets and strong retention. Average membership during the second quarter 2021 was approximately 194,000, an increase of 57% from 2020. Average membership during the quarter included approximately 13,100 retroactive members associated with the first quarter, including a large group MA contract. Second quarter results include $35 million in revenue from these retroactive members.

During the second quarter, we launched five Direct Contracting Entities (DCE) in collaboration with seven of our physician group partners. The DCE program allows physician groups on the agilon platform to operate a single line of business for Medicare patients, including traditional Medicare and Medicare Advantage. As of June 30, 2021, the DCEs provided coordinated care for over 50,000 attributed beneficiaries on traditional Medicare.

Total membership on the agilon platform was over 280,000 as of June 30, 2021, inclusive of 181,700 members under capitated contacts with MA plans, 49,000 members currently in implementation for 2022 contract go-live, and more than 50,000 attributed DCE patients, which are not consolidated.

Medical margin represents the amount earned from medical services revenue after medical services expenses are deducted. Medical services expense represents costs incurred for medical services provided to our members. As our platform matures over time, we expect medical margin to increase in absolute dollars. However, medical margin per member per month (PMPM) may vary as the percentage of new members brought onto our platform fluctuates. New membership added to the platform is typically dilutive to medical margin PMPM.

Our platform support costs, which include regionally-based support personnel and other operating costs to support our geographies, are expected to decrease over time as a percentage of revenue as our physician partners add members and our revenue grows. Our operating expenses at the enterprise level include resources and technology to support payor contracting, clinical program development, quality, data management, finance and legal functions.

(1)

Represents direct geography entry costs, including investments to develop and expand our platform, physician incentive expense, employee-related expenses and marketing. For the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, (i) $2.8 million and $1.1 million, respectively, are included in other medical expenses and (ii) $6.8 million and $3.7 million, respectively, are included in general and administrative expenses. For the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, (i) $4.5 million and $2.1 million, respectively, are included in other medical expenses and (ii) $10.0 million and $4.4 million, respectively, are included in general and administrative expenses.

(2)

Represents management fees and other expenses paid to CD&R. In connection with our initial public offering, we terminated our consulting agreement with CD&R, effective April 16, 2021. We were not charged a fee in connection with the termination of this agreement.

(3)

Includes changes in non-cash accruals for unasserted claims and contingent liabilities.

In addition to providing results that are determined in accordance with GAAP, we present network contribution and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures.

We define network contribution as medical services revenue less the sum of: (i) medical services expense and (ii) other medical expenses excluding costs incurred in implementing geographies. Other medical expenses consist of physician incentive expense related to surplus sharing and other direct medical expenses incurred to improve care for our members. We believe this metric provides insight into the economics of our Total Care Model as it includes all medical services expense associated with our members’ care as well as partner incentive and additional medical costs we incur as part of our aligned partnership model. Other medical expenses are largely variable and proportionate to the level of surplus in each respective geography.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude: (i) income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of income taxes, (ii) interest expense, (iii) income tax expense (benefit), (iv) depreciation and amortization expense, (v) geography entry costs, (vi) share-based compensation expense, (vii) severance and related costs and (viii) certain other items that are not considered by us in the evaluation of ongoing operating performance.

Income (loss) from operations is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to network contribution. Net income (loss) is the most directly comparable GAAP measure to Adjusted EBITDA.

We believe network contribution and Adjusted EBITDA help identify underlying trends in our business and facilitate evaluation of period-to-period operating performance of our live geographies by eliminating items that are variable in nature and not considered by us in the evaluation of ongoing operating performance, allowing comparison of our recurring core business operating results over multiple periods. We also believe network contribution and Adjusted EBITDA provide useful information about our operating results, enhance the overall understanding of our past performance and future prospects, and allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics we use for financial and operational decision-making. We believe network contribution and Adjusted EBITDA or similarly titled non-GAAP measures are widely used by investors, securities analysts, ratings agencies, and other parties in evaluating companies in our industry as a measure of financial performance. Other companies may calculate network contribution and Adjusted EBITDA or similarly-titled non-GAAP measures differently from the way we calculate these metrics. As a result, our presentation of network contribution and Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures.
