Pediatrix Medical Group Reports Second Quarter Results

·14 min read

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., August 04, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pediatrix Medical Group, Inc. (NYSE: MD), the nation’s leading provider of highly specialized health care for women, children and babies, today reported earnings from continuing operations of $0.36 per share for the three months ended June 30, 2022. On a non-GAAP basis, Pediatrix reported Adjusted EPS from continuing operations of $0.47.

For the 2022 second quarter, Pediatrix reported the following results from continuing operations:

  • Net revenue of $486 million;

  • Income from continuing operations of $31 million; and

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $66 million.

"Our bottom line results reflected modest volume growth and continued operating efficiency," said Mark S. Ordan, Chief Executive Officer of Pediatrix Medical Group. "Our formal return to the Pediatrix name and brand reflects our commitment to the highest quality care possible for women, babies and children, and that is where 100 percent of our efforts are focused."

Operating Results from Continuing Operations – Three Months Ended June 30, 2022

Pediatrix’s net revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $486.0 million, compared to $473.0 million for the prior-year period. Pediatrix’s revenue growth was driven by net acquisition activity, modestly offset by an overall same-unit revenue decrease of 1.3 percent.

Same-unit revenue attributable to patient volume increased by 0.6 percent for the 2022 second quarter as compared to the prior-year period, with growth in neonatology and other pediatric services partially offset by slight declines in maternal-fetal medicine and pediatric cardiology services. Shown below are year-over-year percentage changes in certain same-unit volume statistics for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022. (Note: figures in the below table reflect contributions only to net patient service revenue and exclude other contributions to total same-unit revenue, including contract and administrative fees.)

Same-unit revenue from net reimbursement-related factors declined by 1.9 percent for the 2022 second quarter as compared to the prior-year period. This net decrease primarily reflects a modest decline in the percentage of services reimbursed by commercial and other non-government payors compared to the prior-year period and the timing of certain revenue cycle management transition activities, partially offset by increases in contract and administrative fees and funds received under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security ("CARES") Act. The percentage of services reimbursed by commercial and other non-government payors declined by approximately 120 basis points compared to the prior-year period. For the 2022 second quarter, the Company recorded $0.7 million of miscellaneous revenue from funds received under the CARES Act, which increased the Company’s same-unit revenue from net reimbursement-related factors by 0.2 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2022.

For the 2022 second quarter, practice salaries and benefits expense was $330.8 million, compared to $317.0 million for the prior-year period. This increase primarily reflects acquisitions completed over the past year.

For the 2022 second quarter, general and administrative expenses were $61.2 million, as compared to $71.0 million for the prior-year period. The net decrease of $9.8 million is primarily related to lower professional fees, including legal fees, as well as a net savings in revenue cycle management expenses.

For the second quarter of 2022, transformational and restructuring related expenses totaled $5.3 million, compared to $9.9 million for the second quarter of 2021. The expense recorded during the second quarter of 2022 related predominantly to position eliminations.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations, which is defined as earnings from continuing operations before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, and transformational and restructuring related expenses, was $65.6 million for the 2022 second quarter, compared to $65.5 million for the prior-year period. Funds received from the provider relief fund established by the CARES Act favorably impacted Adjusted EBITDA by approximately $0.5 million for the second quarter of 2022.

Depreciation and amortization expense was $8.8 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $8.1 million for the second quarter of 2021.

Investment and other income was $0.8 million for the second quarter of 2022, compared to $4.2 million for the second quarter of 2021. This decrease primarily reflects the reimbursement received in the prior year period related to the transition services provided to the buyers of the Company’s divested medical groups.

Interest expense was $8.4 million for the second quarter of 2022 compared to $16.9 million for the second quarter of 2021. This decrease reflects lower total debt and lower interest rates from the Company’s previously-disclosed refinancing transactions completed during the first quarter of 2022.

Pediatrix generated income from continuing operations of $30.7 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, for the 2022 second quarter, based on a weighted average 85.6 million shares outstanding. This compares with income from continuing operations of $30.5 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, for the 2021 second quarter, based on a weighted average 85.9 million shares outstanding.

For the second quarter of 2022, Pediatrix reported Adjusted EPS from continuing operations of $0.47, compared to $0.41 for the second quarter of 2021. For these periods, Adjusted EPS from continuing operations is defined as diluted income from continuing operations per common and common equivalent share excluding non-cash amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, transformational and restructuring related expenses, and discrete tax events, and for the prior year period also excludes the gain on sale of building.

Operating Results from Continuing Operations – Six Months Ended June 30, 2022

For the six months ended June 30, 2022, Pediatrix generated revenue from continuing operations of $968.3 million, compared to $919.7 million for the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was $116.2 million, compared to $111.0 million for the prior year. Pediatrix generated income from continuing operations of $9.8 million, or $0.11 per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2022, based on a weighted average 85.9 million shares outstanding, which compares to income from continuing operations of $35.9 million, or $0.42 per share, based on a weighted average 85.7 million shares outstanding for the first six months of 2021. For the six months ended June 30, 2022, Pediatrix reported Adjusted EPS from continuing operations of $0.79, compared to $0.65 in the same period of 2021.

Financial Position and Cash Flow – Continuing Operations

Pediatrix had cash and cash equivalents of $14.1 million at June 30, 2022, compared to $387.4 million on December 31, 2021, and net accounts receivable were $307.2 million. As previously disclosed, during the first quarter of 2022 the Company used cash on hand, together with proceeds from the new issuance of debt, to redeem its $1.0 billion in outstanding principal amount of 6.25% Senior Notes due 2027 and pay related fees and expenses.

For the second quarter of 2022, Pediatrix generated cash from continuing operations of $81.6 million, compared to $70.4 million for the second quarter of 2021. During the second quarter of 2022, the Company used $64.4 million to fund the repurchase of 3.3 million shares under the Company’s previously announced repurchase program, $6.6 million to fund capital expenditures and $3 million to fund one practice acquisition.

At June 30, 2022, Pediatrix had total debt outstanding of $800 million, consisting of its $400 million in 5.375% Senior Notes due 2030; $247 million in borrowings under its Term A Loan; and $153 million in borrowings under its revolving line of credit.

Non-GAAP Measures

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations and Adjusted EPS from continuing operations to the most directly comparable GAAP measures for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021 is provided in the financial tables of this press release.

2022 Outlook

Pediatrix anticipates that its 2022 Adjusted EBITDA, as defined above, will be in a range of $260 million to $270 million. This outlook reflects Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of 2022 of $116.2 million.
