Announces Two Operating Partner Additions and One Expansion

WASHINGTON, May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Evolent Health, Inc. (NYSE: EVH), a health care company that delivers proven clinical and administrative solutions to payers and providers, today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2022.

Highlights from the first quarter of 2022 announcement include:

Quarter ended March 31, 2022:

  • GAAP revenue of $297.1 million, an increase of $82.0 million, or 38.1%, from the three months ended March 31, 2021.

  • Net loss attributable to common shareholders of Evolent Health, Inc. of $5.4 million resulting in a net loss margin of (1.8)%.

  • Achieved Adjusted EBITDA of $24.3 million resulting in an Adjusted EBITDA margin of 8.2%.

  • Total Lives on Platform of 20.3 million as of March 31, 2022, composed of 2.1 million Evolent Health Services Lives on Platform and 18.2 million Clinical Solutions Lives on Platform.

Also today, Evolent announced the following partnership additions:

  • AvMed, a not-for-profit health plan headquartered in Miami, Florida, will expand its relationship with New Century Health, adding the Performance suite for oncology. AvMed has been a highly valued client for New Century Health's Technology and Services suite within cardiology. In addition, AvMed will adopt New Century Health's Technology and Services radiation oncology solution to support the management of populations impacted by cancer.

  • In 2022, an independent physician group headquartered in California has engaged with Evolent Care Partners to participate in the Medicare Shared Savings Program across a portion of its Medicare fee for service population through multiple member primary care physician practices.

Additionally, the Company announced the following partnership expansion:

  • Beginning in 2023, Bright Healthcare plans to significantly expand the implementation to certain Individual Family Plan membership beyond the approximately 350,000 lives that migrated to Evolent Health Services in 2022.

Seth Blackley, Chief Executive Officer, and Co-Founder of Evolent Health stated, "The first quarter marks a strong beginning of the year on the heels of a successful 2021. The Company continues to demonstrate strong organic growth and margin expansion, while optimizing the deployment of shareholder capital. In support of organic growth, we announced two additional operating partnerships today, bringing our total for the year to 6 versus our annual target of 6-8 new partners. We also announced an exciting client expansion for 2023. As we continue to see strong execution across the business, with particularly high growth in New Century Health and Evolent Care Partners, we remain well positioned against our near and longer-term business objectives."

Mr. Blackley added, "As we look ahead for 2022, I am confident in the value of our solutions, the depth of our talent and the durability of our strategy. Together, these assets enable us to execute successfully on our mission to help transform U.S. healthcare. Because we have captured only a small fraction of our value-based-care addressable market, I am confident we are well positioned to grow our impact significantly throughout this year and beyond."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to disclosing financial results that are determined in accordance with GAAP, we present and discuss Revenue Excluding Divested Assets, Adjusted Cost of Revenue, Adjusted Selling, General and Administrative Expenses, Adjusted Depreciation and Amortization Expenses, Adjusted Total Operating Expenses, Adjusted Operating Income (Loss), Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Available to Common Shareholders and Adjusted Earnings (Loss) per Share Available to Common Shareholders, which are all non-GAAP financial measures, as supplemental measures to help investors evaluate our fundamental operational performance.

Adjusted Cost of Revenue and Adjusted Selling, General and Administrative Expenses are defined as cost of revenue and selling, general and administrative expenses, respectively, adjusted to exclude the impact of stock-based compensation expenses, severance costs, amortization of contract cost assets recorded as a result of a one-time ASC 606 transition adjustment, acquisition-related costs related to acquisitions and business combinations, securities offerings, discontinued operations, strategy and shareholder advisory services and certain one-time adjustments. Management uses Adjusted Cost of Revenue and Adjusted Selling, General and Administrative Expenses as supplemental performance measures, which are also useful to investors, because they facilitate an understanding of our long-term operational costs while removing the effect of costs that are not expected to reoccur frequently (e.g. acquisition-related costs) and non-cash (e.g. stock-based compensation expenses) in nature. Additionally, these supplemental performance measures facilitate understanding a breakdown of our Adjusted Total Operating Expenses. Adjustments for acquisition-related costs incurred generally represent professional service fees and direct expenses related to acquisitions. Because we do not acquire businesses on a predictable cycle, we do not consider the amount of acquisition-related costs to be a representative component of the day-to-day operating performance of our business.

Adjusted Depreciation and Amortization Expenses is defined as depreciation and amortization expenses adjusted to exclude the impact of amortization expenses related to intangible assets acquired through asset acquisitions and business combinations. Management uses Adjusted Depreciation and Amortization Expenses as a supplemental performance measure because it reflects a complete view of the operational results. The measure is also useful to investors because it facilitates understanding a breakdown of our Adjusted Total Operating Expenses.

Adjusted Total Operating Expenses is defined as the sum of Adjusted Cost of Revenue, Adjusted Selling, General and Administrative Expenses and Adjusted Depreciation and Amortization Expenses, and reflects the adjustments made in those non-GAAP measures. Adjusted Total Operating Expenses is further adjusted to exclude the impact of (gain) loss on disposal of assets and items arising from acquisitions and business combinations, such as changes in fair value of contingent consideration.

Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) is defined as Adjusted Revenue less Adjusted Total Operating Expenses, and reflects the adjustments made in those non-GAAP measures. Management uses Adjusted Total Operating Expenses and Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) because the removal of acquisition costs, one-time or non-cash items (e.g. depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation expenses) allows us to focus on operational performance, and believes these measures are useful to investors because they give investors insight into our core operating performance.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss attributable to common shareholders of Evolent Health, Inc. before interest income, interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expenses, adjusted to exclude gain on transfer of membership, loss on repayment of debt, gain from equity method investees, changes in fair value of contingent consideration, other income (expense), net, repositioning costs, stock-based compensation expense, severance costs, amortization of contract cost assets, strategy and shareholder advisory services, acquisition-related costs and gain from discontinued operations.

Management uses Adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure because the removal of acquisition-related costs, one-time or non-cash items (e.g. depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation expenses) allows us to focus on operational performance. We believe that this measure is also useful to investors because it allows further insight into the period over period operational performance in a manner that is comparable to other organizations in our industry and in the market in general.

Adjusted EBITDA Margin is as defined Adjusted EBITDA divided by Revenue. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA margin as a supplemental performance measure because it allows the investor to understand operational performance compared to revenues over time. We believe that this measure is also useful to investors because it allows further insight into the period over period operational performance in a manner that is comparable to other organizations in our industry and in the market in general.

Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Available to Common Shareholders is defined as net loss attributable to common shareholders of Evolent Health, Inc. adjusted to exclude gain from equity method investees, other income (expense), net, gain on transfer of membership, loss on repayment of debt, changes in fair value of contingent consideration, purchase accounting adjustments, repositioning costs, stock-based compensation expenses, severance costs, amortization of contract cost assets recorded as a result of a one-time ASC 606 transition adjustment, gain from discontinued operations, strategy and shareholder advisory services and acquisition-related costs.

Adjusted Earnings (Loss) per Share Available to Common Shareholders is defined as Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Available to Common Shareholders divided by Weighted-Average Common Shares, and reflects the adjustments made in those non-GAAP measures.

Management uses Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Available to Common Shareholders and Adjusted Earnings (Loss) per Share Available to Common Shareholders because excluding non-cash items (e.g. depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation expenses) allows us to focus on operational performance. We believe that these measures are also useful to investors for the same reason.

Revenue Excluding Divested Assets is defined as the sum of revenue, less revenue from our divested health plan assets of Passport, Lighthouse and Miami Children's when divested. Management uses Total Revenue Excluding Divested Assets as a supplemental performance measure because it reflects our on-going operational results. The measure is useful to investors because it reflects the current view of our operational performance in line with how we generate our long-term forecasts.

These adjusted measures do not represent and should not be considered as alternatives to GAAP measurements, and our calculations thereof may not be comparable to similarly entitled measures reported by other companies. A reconciliation of these adjusted measures to their most comparable GAAP financial measures is presented in the tables below. We believe these measures are useful across time in evaluating our fundamental core operating performance.

Lives on Platform and Per Member Per Month ("PMPM") Fee

Total Lives on Platform are calculated by summing our Evolent Health Services Lives on Platform and our Clinical Solutions Lives on Platform. Evolent Health Services Lives on Platform are calculated by summing members on our value-based care and comprehensive health plan administrative platform. Clinical Solutions Lives on Platform are calculated by summing the Clinical Solutions Lives on Platform in our Performance suite and New Century Health Technology and Services suite Lives on Platform. Clinical Solutions Lives on Platform in our Performance suite are calculated by summing members covered for oncology specialty care services and members covered for cardiology specialty care services for contracts not under ASO arrangements. New Century Health Technology and Services suite Lives on Platform are calculated by summing members covered for oncology specialty care services, members covered for cardiology specialty care services and members covered for advance care planning services for contracts under ASO arrangements. Members covered for more than one category are counted in each category.

Evolent Health Services average per member per month ("PMPM") fee is defined as platform and operations revenue pertaining to the Evolent Health Services segment during the period reported divided by the average of the beginning and ending Evolent Health Services segment membership during the period reported divided by the number of months in the period. Clinical Solutions Performance suite Average PMPM fee is defined as platform and operations services revenue pertaining to our Clinical Solutions Performance suite during the period reported divided by the average of the beginning and ending Clinical Solutions Performance suite membership during the period reported divided by the number of months in the period. New Century Health Technology and Services suite Average PMPM fee is defined as platform and operations revenue pertaining to the New Century Health Technology and Services suite during the period reported divided by the average of the beginning and ending New Century Health Technology and Services suite membership during the period reported divided by the number of months in the period.

Management uses lives on platform and PMPM fees because we believe that they provide insight into the unit economics of our services. We believe that these measures are also useful to investors because they allow further insight into the period over period operational performance. We believe that these measures are also useful to investors because they allow further insight into the period over period operational performance.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS - CAUTIONARY LANGUAGE

Certain statements made in this report and in other written or oral statements made by us or on our behalf are "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 ("PSLRA"). A forward-looking statement is a statement that is not a historical fact and, without limitation, includes any statement that may predict, forecast, indicate or imply future results, performance or achievements, and may contain words like: "believe," "anticipate," "expect," "estimate," "aim," "predict," "potential," "continue," "plan," "project," "will," "should," "shall," "may," "might" and other words or phrases with similar meaning in connection with a discussion of future operating or financial performance. In particular, these include statements relating to our ability to grow our impact significantly throughout this year and beyond, future actions, trends in our businesses, prospective services, new partner additions/expansions, our guidance and business outlook and future performance or financial results, and the closing of pending transactions and the outcome of contingencies, such as legal proceedings. We claim the protection afforded by the safe harbor for forward-looking statements provided by the PSLRA.

These statements are only predictions based on our current expectations and projections about future events. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to differ materially from the results contained in the forward-looking statements. Risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to vary materially, some of which are described within the forward-looking statements, include, among others:

  • the significant portion of revenue we derive from our largest partners, and the potential loss, non-renewal, termination or renegotiation of our relationship or contract with any significant partner, or multiple partners in the aggregate;

  • evolution in the market for value-based care;

  • uncertainty in the health care regulatory framework, including the potential impact of policy changes;

  • our ability to offer new and innovative products and services;

  • risks related to completed and future acquisitions, investments, alliances and joint ventures, divert management resources, or result in unanticipated costs or dilute our stockholders;

  • the financial benefits we expect to receive as a result of the sale of certain assets of Passport may not be realized;

  • the growth and success of our partners, which is difficult to predict and is subject to factors outside of our control, including governmental funding reductions and other policy changes, enrollment numbers for our partners' plans, premium pricing reductions, selection bias in at-risk membership and the ability to control and, if necessary, reduce health care costs;

  • risks relating to our ability to maintain profitability for our total cost of care and New Century Health's performance-based contracts and products, including capitation and risk-bearing contracts;

  • our ability to effectively manage our growth and maintain an efficient cost structure, and to successfully implement cost cutting measures;

  • changes in general economic conditions nationally and regionally in our markets, including inflation and economic and business conditions and the impact thereof on the economy resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and other public health emergencies;

  • our ability to recover the significant upfront costs in our partner relationships;

  • our ability to attract new partners and successfully capture new growth opportunities;

  • the increasing number of risk-sharing arrangements we enter into with our partners;

  • our ability to estimate the size of our target markets;

  • our ability to maintain and enhance our reputation and brand recognition;

  • consolidation in the health care industry;

  • competition which could limit our ability to maintain or expand market share within our industry;

  • risks related to governmental payer audits and actions, including whistleblower claims;

  • our ability to partner with providers due to exclusivity provisions in our contracts;

  • risks related to our offshore operations;

  • our ability to contain health care costs, implement increases in premium rates on a timely basis, maintain adequate reserves for policy benefits or maintain cost effective provider agreements;

  • our dependency on our key personnel, and our ability to attract, hire, integrate and retain key personnel;

  • the impact of additional goodwill and intangible asset impairments on our results of operations;

  • our indebtedness, our ability to service our indebtedness, and our ability to obtain additional financing;

  • our ability to achieve profitability in the future;

  • the impact of litigation, including the ongoing class action lawsuit;

  • material weaknesses in the future may impact our ability to conclude that our internal control over financial reporting is not effective and we may be unable to produce timely and accurate financial statements;

  • restrictions and penalties as a result of privacy and data protection laws;

  • data loss or corruption due to failures or errors in our systems and service disruptions at our data centers;

  • restrictions and penalties as a result of privacy and data protection laws;

  • adequate protection of our intellectual property, including trademarks;

  • any alleged infringement, misappropriation or violation of third-party proprietary rights;

  • our use of "open source" software;

  • our ability to protect the confidentiality of our trade secrets, know-how and other proprietary information;

  • our reliance on third parties and licensed technologies;

  • our ability to use, disclose, de-identify or license data and to integrate third-party technologies;

  • our reliance on Internet infrastructure, bandwidth providers, data center providers, other third parties and our own systems for providing services to our partners;

  • our reliance on third-party vendors to host and maintain our technology platform;

  • our obligations to make payments to certain of our pre-IPO investors for certain tax benefits we may claim in the future;

  • our ability to utilize benefits under the tax receivables agreement described herein;

  • our obligations to make payments under the tax receivables agreement that may be accelerated or may exceed the tax benefits we realize;

  • the terms of agreements between us and certain of our pre-IPO investors;

  • the conditional conversion features of the 2024 and 2025 convertible notes, which, if triggered, could require us to settle the 2024 or 2025 convertible notes in cash;

  • the potential volatility of our Class A common stock price;

  • the potential decline of our Class A common stock price if a substantial number of shares are sold or become available for sale;

  • provisions in our second amended and restated certificate of incorporation and third amended and restated by-laws and provisions of Delaware law that discourage or prevent strategic transactions, including a takeover of us;

  • the ability of certain of our investors to compete with us without restrictions;

  • provisions in our second amended and restated certificate of incorporation which could limit our stockholders' ability to obtain a favorable judicial forum for disputes with us or our directors, officers or employees; and

  • our intention not to pay cash dividends on our Class A common stock.

The risks included here are not exhaustive. Although we believe the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance or achievements. Our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 (the "2021 Form 10-K") and other documents filed with the SEC include additional factors that could affect our businesses and financial performance. Moreover, we operate in a rapidly changing and competitive environment. New risk factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all such risk factors.

Further, it is not possible to assess the effect of all risk factors on our businesses or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Given these risks and uncertainties, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. In addition, we disclaim any obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that occur after the date of this report.
