"Our solid growth in the fourth quarter strengthens our leadership position with SilverSneakers® and Prime® Fitness.  We are pleased with the early results of our first ever SilverSneakers television ad, along with our other growth levers, which we believe are driving increased eligibility checks, enrollment and visits," said Donato Tramuto, Tivity Health's Chief Executive Officer.  "The discussions we are having with our health plan partners and self-insured employers related to our pending acquisition of Nutrisystem reinforce our conviction that there is high interest in addressing social determinants of health related to fitness, nutrition and social isolation through a diagnosis-driven diet approach."

Tivity Health has entered into an agreement with Walmart (WMT) to offer a comprehensive fitness program to Walmart's 1.5 million associates and their families. The multi-year agreement will be effective starting June 1, 2019, and the benefit will be offered to full-time U.S. associates starting this Summer.  The Walmart associate program will be powered by Tivity Health's national Prime Fitness network, where members enjoy national reciprocity at thousands of fitness centers nationwide, including national chains, community centers, recreation centers and locally-owned facilities. 

"Wellness is an important part of our commitment to helping people live better and providing our associates access to programs that support a healthy lifestyle is another way we are delivering on that commitment," said Walmart Senior Vice President, Total Rewards, Adam Stavisky. "Walmart is excited to partner with Tivity Health to further improve the accessibility of quality health programs for our associates nationwide."

2019 Financial Guidance

Tivity Health announced today the following standalone financial guidance for 2019:   

  • Revenues in a range of $612 million to $627 million;
  • Adjusted EBITDA in a range of $140 million to $145 million; and
  • Free cash flow in a range of $95 million to $100 million.

"Last year we provided a preliminary outlook into 2019 that reflected a reduction in United Healthcare lives.  We felt comfortable then with our projections of mid-to-high single digit revenue growth in 2019.  However, as we received the final enrollment data in late January, we discovered that United Healthcare had pulled forward more lives," said Mr. Tramuto.  "United Healthcare's removal of those additional lives a year ahead of our expectations account for nearly $20 million less revenue than we initially expected for 2019.  And lastly, while we are excited about the many potential revenue synergies of the combined company, we have not built those into our guidance."

In addition, Nutrisystem separately announced standalone financial guidance for 2019.  Based on this guidance, the Company announced the following preliminary combined 2019 financial guidance for Tivity Health and Nutrisystem:

  • Revenues in a range of $1,146 million to $1,177 million;
  • Adjusted EBITDA in a range of $240 million to $258 million; and
  • Including cost synergies in a range of $9 million to $12 million.

This combined financial guidance for 2019 includes the full year 2019 expected results for Tivity Health and the expected results of Nutrisystem from the date immediately following the anticipated closing date of the proposed transaction (such closing date currently expected to be March 8, 2019) through December 31, 2019.

(1)

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure.  The Company excludes project costs and restructuring charges from this measure because of its comparability to the Company's historical operating results. The Company believes it is useful to investors to provide disclosures of its operating results on the same basis as that used by management.  You should not consider Adjusted EBITDA in isolation or as a substitute for income from continuing operations determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Additionally, because Adjusted EBITDA may be defined differently by other companies in the Company's industry, the non-GAAP financial measure presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

(2)

Project costs consists of pre-tax charges of $3,696 for the year ended December 31, 2018 and $3,269 for the three months ended December 31, 2018 incurred in connection with potential and pending acquisitions.

(3)

Restructuring charges consists of pre-tax charges of $124 for the year ended December 31, 2018 primarily due to additional costs related to a prior restructuring and $2,554 for the three months ended December 31, 2017 related to a restructuring to streamline our operations support.

(4)

EBITDA from continuing operations is a non-GAAP financial measure.  The Company believes it is useful to investors to provide disclosures of its operating results and guidance on the same basis as that used by management.  You should not consider EBITDA from continuing operations in isolation or as a substitute for income from continuing operations determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure and is defined by the Company as net cash flows provided by operating activities less acquisition of property and equipment.  The Company believes free cash flow is a useful measure of performance and an indication of the strength of the Company and its ability to generate cash.  The Company believes it is useful to investors to provide disclosures of its results on the same basis as that used by management.  You should not consider free cash flow in isolation or as a substitute for net cash flows provided by operating activities determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Additionally, because free cash flow may be defined differently by other companies in the Company's industry, the non-GAAP financial measure presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted income from continuing operations is a non-GAAP financial measure.  The Company excludes net loss attributable to income tax expense related to tax reform, project costs, and restructuring charges from this measure because of its comparability to the Company's historical operating results.  The Company believes it is useful to investors to provide disclosures of its operating results on the same basis as that used by management.  You should not consider adjusted income from continuing operations in isolation or as a substitute for income from continuing operations determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP.  Additionally, because adjusted income from continuing operations may be defined differently by other companies in the Company's industry, the non-GAAP financial measure presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.

Net loss attributable to project costs consists of pre-tax charges of $3,269 for the three months ended December 31, 2018 incurred in connection with potential and pending acquisitions.

(8)

Net loss attributable to restructuring charges consists of pre-tax charges of $2,554 for the three months ended December 31, 2017 related to a restructuring to streamline our operations support. The tax rate applied to this expense was 39.55%, which represented the combined estimated U.S. federal and state statutory tax rate.

(9)

Net loss attributable to income tax expense related to tax reform is due to the implementation of the Tax Cuts and Job Act of 2017, which resulted in incremental tax expense of $7,442 during the three months ended December 31, 2017 related to both the re-measurement of our deferred tax assets to the lower tax rate and the requirement to recalculate the impact of repatriation of our foreign earnings, which occurred earlier in the year.
