Net same clinic revenue on a day-adjusted basis declined by 10.6 percent compared to the same period in 2019, as patient volumes continued to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Net income was $16.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to $18.8 million for the same period in 2019. Income from operations was $29.1 million for the quarter compared to $26.9 million for the same period in 2019.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $35.5 million in the fourth quarter, compared to $42.4 million for the same period in 2019, reflecting a decline of $6.9 million.

  • GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.41 for the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to $0.49 for the same period in 2019. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.36 for the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to $0.45 for the same period in 2019.

  • On December 31, 2020, the Company had $239.4 million in liquidity, reflecting an increase of $70.2 million as compared with December 31, 2019.

Vinit Asar, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hanger, Inc., stated, "Despite the nationwide resurgence of COVID-19 during the fourth quarter, we continued to safely provide essential care to our patients and experienced volumes consistent with those of the third quarter. We begin 2021 with a renewed sense of optimism and collective purpose to transform O&P through outcomes-based care and anticipate a return to growth as public health conditions improve."

Complete reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures are provided in the tables located at the end of this press release.

Segment Results for Three Months Ended December 31, 2020

Patient Care Segment

For the three months ended December 31, 2020, Patient Care net revenue was $232.9 million, a decrease of $20.1 million or 7.9 percent, compared to the same period in 2019. For the three month period, acquisitions of O&P clinics that were consummated in 2019 and 2020 contributed $4.5 million in incremental revenue.

Net same clinic revenue declined by 10.6 percent during the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to the same quarter in the prior year period. This result was generally consistent with the 10.3 percent net same clinic revenue decline reported during the third quarter of 2020. Patient volumes continued to be adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic but did not experience a further deterioration despite increases in the rate of infection within the general population during the fourth quarter of 2020.

Excluding the effect of acquisitions, net revenue from prosthetics declined 12.3 percent in the quarter and net revenue from orthotics declined 8.1 percent compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. Prosthetics comprised 56.0 percent of Patient Care segment net revenue during the fourth quarter of 2020 as compared with 57.3 percent during the same period in 2019.

The average decline in patient appointments for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 was 12 percent as compared with the same period in 2019. This reflected an improvement from the 16 percent decline in the third quarter of 2020 and was consistent with the levels seen in September 2020. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had temporarily closed eight patient care clinics and another 56 clinics were open for reduced hours or by appointment only.

Income from operations in the Patient Care segment was $44.8 million during the fourth quarter of 2020, a decrease of $3.1 million compared to the $47.9 million reported in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the segment was $45.3 million, which reflected an $8.3 million or 15.5 percent decrease. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the segment totaled 19.5 percent compared to 21.2 percent during the fourth quarter of 2019. Patient Care segment Adjusted EBITDA excludes the benefit of $3.5 million related to the Company's recognition of remaining CARES Act healthcare provider grants. These grants were received under the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund, also referred to as The Provider Relief Fund, established by the CARES Act. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes a gain of $1.9 million from the sale of real property as well as certain severance and supply chain implementation costs in the quarter.

Products & Services Segment

For the three months ended December 31, 2020, Products & Services net revenue totaled $44.4 million, a decline of 7.2 percent compared with the same period in 2019. Revenue from the distribution of O&P componentry declined by $2.8 million, or 7.7 percent, primarily from lower sales volumes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and, to a lesser extent, the Company's decision to exit the distribution of certain low margin off-the-shelf orthotics into third-party channels. Therapeutic solutions revenue declined $0.7 million, or 5.7 percent.

Income from operations for the Products & Services segment increased by $0.9 million to $4.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. Adjusted EBITDA for the Products & Services segment was $7.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, which reflected an improvement of $1.0 million compared with the same period of 2019. Adjusted EBITDA in the segment excludes equity-based compensation, severance and supply chain implementation expenses. The increase in segment Adjusted EBITDA was driven primarily by lower operating expenses, most notably bad debt expense, reflecting positive trade collection activity during the quarter. As a result, Adjusted EBITDA improved to 17.0 percent in the fourth quarter of 2020 compared to 13.6 percent in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Corporate & Other

GAAP expenses associated with corporate and other activities decreased by $4.4 million to $20.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. Excluding the effect of depreciation and amortization, non-cash equity-based compensation expense, severance and acquisition-related expenses, the net cost of corporate and other activities decreased by $0.4 million to $17.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Net Income; Interest Expense

Interest expense totaled $7.5 million in the three month period ended December 31, 2020, a decrease of $0.8 million from the prior year period.

For the three month period ended December 31, 2020, net income was $16.1 million compared with $18.8 million for the same period in 2019. GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.41, compared to $0.49 per share in 2019. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.36 for the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to $0.45 per share for the same period in 2019.

Financial Highlights for the Year Ended December 31, 2020

Net revenue was $1,001.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $1,098.0 million for the same period of 2019, reflecting net revenue decline of 8.8 percent. For the twelve month period, acquisitions of O&P clinics that were consummated in 2019 and 2020 contributed $15.6 million of incremental revenue.

Patient Care net revenue declined $74.1 million, or 8.2 percent, for the year to $831.6 million, while same clinic day-adjusted net revenue per day declined 11.0 percent. Net revenue from prosthetics, excluding acquisitions, decreased 8.3 percent on a day-adjusted basis, while orthotics net revenue, excluding acquisitions, declined by 14.2 percent, also on a day-adjusted basis.

Throughout 2020, the Patient Care segment revenue was adversely impacted by a decline in patient volumes due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Patient appointment volumes for the full year were approximately 17 percent below those of 2019.

Products & Services segment net revenue declined $22.8 million, or 11.9 percent, resulting from a decrease of $19.4 million, or 13.5 percent, in distribution services and a $3.4 million decrease, or 7.1 percent, in net revenue from therapeutic solutions.

GAAP net income was $38.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 compared to $27.5 million for the same period in 2019. GAAP results for the year included a benefit of $24.0 million to other operating costs related to the Company's receipt of CARES Act healthcare provider grants.

Adjusted EBITDA for 2020 was $105.1 million and compares with the $124.2 million reported in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA excludes the benefit of the CARES Act healthcare provider grants, a gain on the sale of real property as well as third-party professional fees, equity compensation, supply chain implementation, certain payments of executive severance and acquisition-related expenses. The decline in Adjusted EBITDA is a result of lower revenue in both of the Company's business segments associated primarily with the COVID-19 pandemic.

For the year ended December 31, 2020, GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.99, compared to $0.72 per share in 2019. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.63 for 2020, compared to $0.90 per share for the same period in 2019.

Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities; Liquidity

Cash flow provided by operating activities for the year ended December 31, 2020 was $155.6 million compared to $58.8 million for the same period in 2019. The Company benefited from the $24.0 million in CARES Act grants as well as significant improvements in cash collections and other working capital reduction measures in 2020. Days sales outstanding decreased by six days to 42 days as of December 31, 2020 from 48 days on December 31, 2019. The Company believes these improvements were largely temporary in nature and that its reported operating cash flow for the year ended December 31, 2020 is not indicative of a normal period of operation.

On December 31, 2020, the Company had liquidity of $239.4 million, comprised of $144.6 million in cash and cash equivalents, and $94.8 million in available borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility. This reflects an increase in liquidity of $70.2 million as compared with the Company's liquidity of $169.2 million as of December 31, 2019.

2021 Outlook

The Company currently believes that the degree of impact on, and timing of cessation of the effects of, the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company's business remain uncertain. Assuming significant continuing declines in the effects of the virus on public activities during the second quarter of 2021, and a full return to pre-COVID activities by the end of June 2021, the Company currently anticipates 2021 net revenue in a range between $1.145 billion and $1.175 billion, and Adjusted EBITDA in a range between $130 million and $135 million.

The Company's outlook for 2021 includes approximately $27 million in revenue relating to the full year of contribution of acquisitions consummated in 2020 and prior to the date of this release in 2021.

Adjusted EBITDA in this outlook is provided on a non-GAAP basis only because a reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP financial measure, net income, is not available without unreasonable effort due to the unpredictable nature of reconciling items that render such a reconciliation not meaningful for investors.

Hanger, Inc.
Segment Information: Revenue, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
(in thousands)

EBITDA is defined as operating income before depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income before certain charges, third-party professional fees in excess of normal amounts incurred in connection with our financial statement remediation, expenses associated with equity-based compensation, severance expenses, certain expenses incurred in connection with our acquisitions, proceeds received from grants under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economy Security Act ("CARES Act") and certain other charges.

We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as measures to assess the relative level of our indebtedness and our compliance with certain debt covenants which are based on these measures. Additionally, we utilize these measures to assess our operating and financial performance. We believe that these measures enhance a user’s understanding of normal operating income excluding certain charges, depreciation and amortization.

Neither EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA are measures of financial performance computed in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") and should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operations, or other statement of operations or cash flow data prepared in conformity with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. In addition, the calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations, and the amounts presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be indicative of historical operating results, and we do not intend these measures to be predictive of future results of operations.

(b) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are "Non-GAAP" measures. Please refer to both Table 6 and Table 7 for a reconciliation of these measures to GAAP net income.

Table 5
Hanger, Inc.
Reconciliation of Net Income and Earnings Per Share to
Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share
(in thousands, except share and per share amounts)

Earnings Per Share (or "EPS") is defined as net income divided by our basic or diluted common shares during the applicable period. Adjusted EPS is defined as EPS adjusted for certain equity-based compensation charges, third-party professional fees in excess of normal amounts incurred in connection with our financial statement remediation, severance expenses, certain expenses incurred in connection with our acquisitions, proceeds received from grants under the CARES Act, and certain other charges.

We utilize Adjusted EPS to assess our operating and financial performance. We believe that this measure enhances a user’s understanding of normal operating results excluding certain charges.

Adjusted EPS is not a measure of financial performance computed in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operations, or other statement of operations or cash flow data prepared in conformity with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. In addition, the calculation of Adjusted EPS is susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations, and the amounts presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Adjusted EPS may not be indicative of historical operating results, and we do not intend these measures to be predictive of future results of operations.

Table 6
Hanger, Inc.
Reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
(in thousands)

EBITDA is defined as operating income before depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income before certain charges, third-party professional fees in excess of normal amounts incurred in connection with our financial statement remediation, expenses associated with equity-based compensation, severance expenses, certain expenses incurred in connection with our acquisitions, proceeds received from grants under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economy Security Act ("CARES Act") and certain other charges.

We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as measures to assess the relative level of our indebtedness and our compliance with certain debt covenants which are based on these measures. Additionally, we utilize these measures to assess our operating and financial performance. We believe that these measures enhance a user’s understanding of normal operating income excluding certain charges, depreciation and amortization.

Neither EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA are measures of financial performance computed in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") and should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operations, or other statement of operations or cash flow data prepared in conformity with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. In addition, the calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations, and the amounts presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
