    The Ensign Group Reports First Quarter 2021 Results; Raises 2021 Earnings Guidance

    Conference Call and Webcast scheduled for tomorrow, April 30, 2021 at 10:00 am PTSAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif., April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Ensign Group, Inc.

Highlights Include: GAAP diluted earnings per share for the quarter was $0.86, representing an increase of 17.8% over the prior year quarter. Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the quarter was $0.87, an increase of 13.0%(1) over the prior year quarter.Consolidated GAAP revenues for the quarter were $627.3 million and adjusted revenues for the quarter were $626.8 million(1), both increased by 6.4% over the prior year quarter.Same store and transitioning skilled revenue improved by 7.6% and 43.7%, respectively, over the prior year quarter with an increase in skilled mix days of 4.4% and 9.9%, respectively.Same store occupancy increased by 0.4% and transitioning occupancy increased by 1.6%, both sequentially over the fourth quarter.Same store and transitioning managed care daily revenue improved by 15.9% and 24.2%, respectively with increases in Managed Care daily census of 17.5% and 25.5%, respectively, sequentially over the fourth quarter.Transitioning and skilled services(2) segment income increased to $88.9 million or 10.3% compared to prior year quarter and increased by $4.8 million or 5.7% sequentially over the fourth quarter.

(2) Our Transitional and Skilled Services and Real Estate Segments are defined and outlined in Note 7 on Form 10-Q. Operating Results “We are very happy to report record results again this quarter. Thanks to early access to the vaccine, we have seen a significant reduction in the number of COVID-positive patients and staff in our operations throughout the first quarter and since with weekly resident and staff cases now in the single digits across our entire portfolio. As a result, our patients and caregivers have begun to enjoy an environment that, although certainly different in many ways, is starting to look and feel a lot more like pre-COVID times,” said Barry Port, Ensign’s Chief Executive Officer. “As they’ve shown so many times before, our locally-empowered leadership teams have yet again demonstrated the agility of our model as they have customized their strategies to meet the specific needs of the markets they serve. In doing so, our operations have separated themselves from a traditional nursing home care, remaining integral to the preservation of the healthcare continuum providing for complex medical needs. As they have done so, our operations have begun to see occupancies climb, particularly among our managed care patients. And now, as these operations emerge from the height of this crisis, they are poised to fill an even greater role than before as new standards for excellence in post-acute care,” he added. Port noted that the Company saw a marked improvement in patient census, with a 3.4% and 18.6% increase in Medicaid and managed care average daily census, from the fourth quarter to first quarter for same store and transitioning portfolio, respectively. He also indicated that same store and transitioning managed care average daily census increased by 17.5% and 25.5%, respectively. “As we expected, as community spread of COVID has slowed, we have seen occupancies increase as the pent-up demand for healthcare services in our markets has continued to increase, while Medicare census has begun to trend toward pre-COVID levels. We expect the positive trend in occupancy to continue throughout the year, subject to some seasonality, as volumes in higher acute settings and managed care utilizations continue to increase. We look forward to continuing to work closely with our hospital and managed care partners in this new environment and to continue to demonstrate our ability to care for patients with the most complex medical needs,” he added. Management increased the Company’s 2021 annual earnings guidance to $3.54 to $3.66 per diluted share, up from previous guidance of $3.44 to $3.56 per diluted share, and affirmed its previous annual revenue guidance of $2.62 billion to $2.69 billion. The midpoint of this 2021 earnings guidance represents an increase of approximately 15% over the Company’s 2020 results, which were 76% higher than 2019 results. Port noted that the increase comes from the strong results during the first quarter, positive trends in occupancy and the continuation of sequestration suspension, which provided some additional reimbursement that was not included in the original guidance. He added, “Our current health combined with our culture, proven local leadership strategy, healthy balance sheet, the enormous potential in our existing portfolio and the tremendous growth opportunities on the horizon, gives us confidence that we are well-positioned to not only rebound to our pre-COVID path but to accelerate our growth.” The Company noted that the strong results in the quarter came from continued improvements in census and managed care skilled mix across the portfolio, company-wide cost saving initiatives, improved operational expense management, improved cash collections and the continuation of sequestration suspension and higher Medicaid funding in certain states. Commenting further on the quarter, Port said, “After one of the most challenging years in our history, our leaders are very excited to redirect the enormous energy spent on dealing with the pandemic towards continued improvement on the fundamentals that have made our operations so successful for so many years, including achieving high quality outcomes, driving occupancy, enhancing our clinical capabilities and managing costs. As we said last year, this pandemic arrived at our doorsteps at a time when our organization has never been stronger clinically and financially. As a result of being stretched to our limits in the face of this pandemic, we have learned many lessons and have become even stronger as our leaders and caregivers have made life-changing sacrifices on behalf of patients and their families. As we look out towards the near and long-term horizon as occupancies begin to climb towards pre-COVID levels and beyond, our existing portfolio truly has never had so much growth potential.” Chief Financial Officer, Suzanne Snapper emphasized that the results for the quarter do not include any benefit related to CARES Act Provider Relief Funds and reminded investors that the Company continued to return all of the relief funds it received from the Government, which included approximately $9 million in provider grants in the first quarter of 2021 and approximately $2 million in April 2021. To date, all of the Provider Relief Funds, totaling over $152.9 million, have been returned to the government. She also indicated that in March the company repaid all remaining Medicare advance payments from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) of approximately $102 million. Ms. Snapper also reported that the company’s liquidity remains strong with approximately $155.5 million of cash on hand and $342.4 million of available capacity under its line-of-credit facility, which also has a built-in expansion option, both as of March 31, 2021. She also noted that the company also has 94 owned assets, 74 of which are unlevered and add additional liquidity. Growth and Real Estate Highlights The Company’s affiliates continued to acquire skilled nursing operations in some of its most mature markets. “Our ability to continue to grow in the midst of a pandemic is a true testament to our local team of clinical and operational leadership and their experience, planning and preparation. After a brief pause in our acquisition efforts during the early months of the pandemic, our teams have shown their commitment to one of the things that drives our organization, which is to consistently and methodically acquire, not only in good times, but even when it would be easier to shut down growth while waiting out the storm,” Chad Keetch, Ensign’s Chief Investment Officer, said. The following skilled nursing operations were acquired during the quarter and since: Golden Hill Post Acute, a 99-bed skilled nursing facility located in San Diego, CA;St. Catherine Healthcare, a 99-bed skilled nursing facility located in Fullerton, CA; Camino Healthcare, a 99-bed skilled nursing facility located in Hawthorne, CA; San Pedro Manor, a 150-bed skilled nursing facility located in San Antonio, TX;Boulder Canyon Health and Rehabilitation, a 140-bed skilled nursing facility located in Boulder, Colorado;Berthoud Care and Rehabilitation, a 76-bed skilled nursing facility located in Berthoud, Colorado; andSouth Valley Post Acute Rehabilitation, a 106-bed skilled nursing facility located in Denver, Colorado. These additions bring Ensign's growing portfolio to 235 healthcare operations, 22 of which also include senior living operations, across thirteen states. Ensign now owns 94 real estate assets, 64 of which it operates. “We are very excited about each of these hand-picked opportunities in some of our strongest markets and, because of the extra time we had to prepare given extra COVID protocols, we believe that each operation is poised to be a contributor to our results very soon,” Keetch said. Keetch also noted that the pipeline for Ensign’s typical turnaround opportunities, in addition to some exciting strategic opportunities, remains strong. “We have plenty of capacity for what we still believe will be an attractive buyer’s market. We are actively looking to grow within our existing geographical footprint and will do so as we see significant advantages to adding strength in markets we know well, including some of our newer emerging markets as they continue to mature and prepare for growth,” he added. Turning to the Company’s real estate portfolio, Keetch added, “We are pleased to announce that during the quarter we have made progress in our effort to select a structure that will allow us to better demonstrate the growing value in our owned real estate. Since our last call we have engaged advisors to help us determine the best path towards a structure inside of Ensign that highlights that value while not losing sight of our purpose-driven mission. We envision a structure that not only creates better visibility into the demonstrable value of our real estate but also will provide us with an efficient vehicle for future acquisitions of properties that could be operated by Ensign Affiliates or other third parties. We also seek a structure that will preserve the optionality that enables us to take advantage of private and public market conditions in order to maximize long term shareholder value. We are very excited about the new opportunities embedded in this chapter of our growth story and look forward, over the coming quarters, to updating you on our progress,” Keetch said. The Company continues to provide additional disclosure on our new real estate segment, which is comprised of properties owned by us and leased to affiliated skilled nursing and senior living operations and 31 senior living operations that are leased to The Pennant Group, Inc. Keetch noted that each of these properties are subject to triple-net, long-term leases and generated rental revenue of $15.9 million for the quarter, of which $11.9 million was derived from Ensign affiliated operations. Also, for the first quarter of 2021 Ensign reported $13.5 million in FFO, which represents an increase of 24.7% over the prior year quarter of $10.8 million. Also, during the quarter, the company paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.0525 per share of Ensign common stock. Keetch noted that the company’s liquidity remains strong and that there are no current plans to suspend future dividends.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures EBITDA consists of net income before (a) interest expense, net, (b) provisions for income taxes and (c) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA consists of net income before (a) interest expense, net, (b) provisions for income taxes, (c) depreciation and amortization, (d) stock-based compensation expense; (e) results of operations not at full capacity, excluding depreciation, interest and income taxes, (f) acquisition related costs and (g) gain on sale of assets. Adjusted EBITDAR consists of net income before (a) interest expense, net, (b) provisions for income taxes, (c) depreciation and amortization, (d) rent-cost of services, (e) stock-based compensation expense; (f) results of operations not at full capacity, excluding rent, depreciation, interest and income taxes, (g) acquisition related costs and (h) gain on sale of assets. Funds from Operations (FFO) for our real estate segment consists of segment income, excluding gains (or losses) from sales of real estate and insurance recoveries related to real estate and impairment of depreciable real estate assets and including depreciation and amortization related to real estate to earnings. The company believes that the presentation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, FFO, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share provides important supplemental information to management and investors to evaluate the company’s operating performance. Adjusted EBITDAR is a financial valuation measure that is not specified in GAAP. This measure is not displayed as a performance measure as it excludes rent expense, which is a normal and recurring operating expense. The company believes disclosure of adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, FFO, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EBITDAR has substance because the excluded revenues and expenses are infrequent in nature and are variable in nature, or do not represent current revenues or cash expenditures. A material limitation associated with the use of these measures as compared to the GAAP measures of net income and diluted earnings per share is that they may not be comparable with the calculation of net income and diluted earnings per share for other companies in the company's industry. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. For further information regarding why the company believes that this non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors, the specific manner in which management uses these measures, and some of the limitations associated with the use of these measures, please refer to the company's periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The company’s periodic filings are available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov or under the "Financial Information" link of the Investor Relations section on Ensign’s website at http://www.ensigngroup.net.
