IPC Healthcare Reports Third-Quarter 2015 Financial Results

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Oct. 27, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IPC Healthcare, Inc. (NASDAQ:IPCM), a leading national acute hospitalist and post-acute provider group practice, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2015. All operating results referred to as "adjusted" exclude the change in fair market value of contingent consideration ("net change in fair value") for acquisitions, transaction costs related to the pending merger with Team Health, Inc., and increased costs related to the False Claims Act litigation. See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below for explanations of these non-GAAP financial measures and reconciliation to GAAP financial measures.

Third Quarter 2015 Highlights (comparisons are to third quarter 2014):

  • Headcount growth of 16% or 291 net providers added over prior year quarter, bringing the total to 2,129 providers.
  • Net revenue increased 9% to $184.8 million, despite cessation of Medicaid Parity at the end of 2014.
  • Patient encounters increased 14% to 1,998,000.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2015 Highlights (comparisons are to nine months ended September 30, 2014):

  • Net revenue increased 7% to $549.6 million, despite cessation of Medicaid Parity at the end of 2014.
  • Patient encounters increased 13% to 5,925,000.

Adam D. Singer, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of IPC Healthcare, said, "We continue to generate strong top line growth with patient encounters growing 14% over the prior year quarter, and despite the cessation of Medicaid Parity at the end of 2014, net revenue grew by 9% for the same period. While our practice margins were challenged this quarter, we remain confident in the fundamentals of our business model and our ability to manage our margins to normalized levels."

Dr. Singer added, "With our large footprint in both the acute and post-acute arenas, coupled with our patient centric business model, we believe we are well positioned to continue to improve patient outcomes and lower healthcare costs. During this last quarter, our provider workforce spent a significant amount of time reviewing, refining and implementing enhanced clinical care programs. The initial indicators of our participation under the Medicare Bundled Payment Care Improvement initiative appear to be encouraging. With our large provider workforce, which grew 16% over the prior year quarter, we are excited about the opportunity to continue to make a positive difference in the lives of our patients and the way healthcare is delivered nationwide."

Merger Agreement

On August 4, 2015, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Team Health Holdings, Inc. (Team Health) (NYSE:TMH), pursuant to which Team Health is expected to acquire the Company for approximately $1.6 billion or $80.25 per share. The completion of the merger is subject to the satisfaction or waiver of customary closing conditions. A special meeting of our stockholders is scheduled to be held on November 16, 2015 to vote upon the adoption of the Merger Agreement and certain related matters.

"We believe the combination of our two physician-centric organizations will be transformative to the healthcare delivery system," said Dr. Singer. "We look forward to working together with Team Health to add further value to our clinicians and our facility partners nationwide and also to enhance both the outcomes and cost-effectiveness of our patient care through our complementary service offerings."

Third Quarter 2015

Patient encounters for the three months ended September 30, 2015 increased by 249,000, or 14.2%, to 1,998,000, compared with 1,749,000 for the same period in the prior year. Net revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $184.8 million, an increase of $15.0 million, or 8.9%, from $169.8 million for the same period in the prior year. The difference between revenue growth and encounter growth is principally related to Medicaid Parity, which largely expired at the end of 2014, and the exiting of certain contracted facilities. Of this $15.0 million increase, 32.5% was attributable to same-market area growth, including new hires and tuck-in acquisitions, and 67.5% was attributable to revenue generated from operations in new markets. Same-market encounters increased 7.3%, and same-market net revenue increased 2.9%. Adjusting for Medicaid Parity and the exiting of certain contracted facilities, same-market encounter growth and net revenue growth would have been approximately 11.7% and 12.2%, respectively.

Physician practice salaries, benefits and other expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2015 were $138.3 million, or 74.8% of net revenue, compared with $123.6 million, or 72.8% of net revenue, for the same period in the prior year. As a percentage of revenue, physician costs increased by 200 basis points compared to the prior year quarter. This increase is due to the acquisition of certain practices that are operating below the Company's average gross margin, added cost for locum tenens, moonlighters and premium call pay for employed physicians at several contracted facilities, and lower productivity during the quarter. The dollar increase in cost of services is largely related to the increase in the number of hospitalists added through hiring and acquisitions during the period.

General and administrative expenses increased $11.0 million, or 39.1%, to $39.1 million, or 21.2% of net revenue, for the three months ended September 30, 2015, compared with $28.1 million, or 16.6% of net revenue, for the same period in the prior year. During the three months ended September 30, 2015, we incurred $5.3 million of transaction costs in connection with the pending merger with Team Health, Inc., and certain incremental costs, above historical levels, of $1.7 million related to the False Claims Act (FCA) litigation with the U.S. government. Excluding these costs, general and administrative expenses (Adjusted G&A expenses) increased $4.0 million, to $32.1 million, or 17.4% over the prior year quarter. The increase in costs of $4.0 million is primarily the result of increased costs to support the continuing growth of operations, and new administrative costs to support our participation in Medicare's Bundled Payment Care Improvement incentive program that commenced on July 1, 2015. On a cost per encounter basis, adjusted G&A expenses increased less than 1.0% from the prior year quarter. Excluding stock-based compensation, adjusted G&A expenses were 16.0% of net revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2015, compared with 15.3% of net revenue for the same period in the prior year. This increase of 70 basis points as a percentage of revenue is largely related to the cessation of Medicaid Parity.

The net change in fair value of contingent consideration ("net change in fair value") for acquisitions was a decrease to expense of $0.3 million and an increase of $2.4 million to expense for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA for the three months ended September 30, 2015 decreased 20.6% to $14.3 million, or an adjusted EBITDA margin of 7.8%, compared with adjusted EBITDA of $18.1 million, or an adjusted EBITDA margin of 10.6% for the same period in the prior year. The decrease in adjusted EBITDA margin is primarily related to the increased practice costs as a percentage of revenue.

The effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 was 38.0% and 38.3%, respectively.

Adjusted net income for the three months ended September 30, 2015 was $7.7 million, or a 4.2% adjusted net income margin, compared with adjusted net income of $10.1 million, or a 5.9% adjusted net income margin, for the same period in the prior year. GAAP net income was $3.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, compared with $8.6 million for the same period in the prior year, and GAAP net income margin was 1.9% and 5.1% for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 was $0.43 and $0.57, respectively. GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.20 and $0.49 for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2015, IPC had approximately $20.0 million in liquidity, which is composed of $2.0 million in cash and cash equivalents, and an available line of credit of $18.0 million. As of September 30, 2015, the Company had borrowings of $130.0 million and letters of credit of $2.0 million and $18.0 million available under its revolving line of credit. In early September 2015, the Company activated the accordion feature under its revolving line of credit, thereby increasing its borrowing capacity to the full available limit of $150.0 million. This increased capacity is available for working capital, practice acquisitions, capital expenditures and general business expenses. Subsequent to September 30, 2015, the Company borrowed an additional $18 million under its revolving line of credit to fund its operations and practice acquisitions. At October 27, 2015, the company had borrowings of $148 million and letters of credit of $2.0 million outstanding, and no available line of credit. Based on its financial strength the Company believes it has the ability to increase borrowings beyond the current line of credit terms should further borrowings be deemed necessary.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 was $30.3 million, compared with $53.8 million for the same period in the prior year. The $23.5 million decrease in net cash provided by operating activities is primarily due to $11.2 million paid for contingent consideration in excess of the amount initially accrued as of the closing date of certain acquired practices and $10.4 million is related to the timing of payments for accrued compensation for each period. During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, accounts receivable increased by $6.8 million. Days sales outstanding (DSO), which is used to measure the effectiveness of collections, was 62 DSO and 60 DSO as of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively. The DSO increase is primarily due to a combination of recent acquisitions and the transition to an insourcing solution for patient self-pay billing.

Net cash used in investing activities was $97.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, compared with $38.8 million for the same period in the prior year. Cash of $92.9 million was used during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 for physician practice acquisitions and contingent consideration payments on prior acquisitions, compared with $35.1 million for the same period in the prior year. Combined with contingent consideration payments included in net cash provided from operating activities, total cash used for practice acquisitions and contingent consideration payments on prior acquisitions was $106.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, compared with $37.5 million for the same period in the prior year.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, net cash provided by financing activities was $54.5 million, compared with net cash used in financing activities of $14.5 million for the same period in the prior year. During the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company repaid $25.0 million of its outstanding revolving line of credit and borrowed $75.0 million under the revolving line of credit to fund its practice acquisitions. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company repaid $20.0 million of its outstanding revolving line of credit.

2015 Guidance Update

The Company has updated the range of its guidance for the full year 2015 and now expects revenue to be in the range of $744 million to $750 million, based on approximately 8.1 million encounters, adjusted EBITDA in the range of $64.7 million to $66.3 million, and adjusted earnings per diluted share to be in the range of $1.97 to $2.02. This compares to previous full year 2015 expectations for revenue to be in the range of $752 million to $766 million, based on 8.3 million to 8.5 million encounters, an adjusted EBITDA range of $71.0 million to $74.0 million, and adjusted diluted earnings per share to be in the range of $2.14 to $2.27. The Company has provided this revised outlook based on the following assumptions: (i) weighted average shares outstanding of 18.0 million for the year; (ii) a 38.0% effective tax rate, (iii) $8.2 million in stock-based compensation expense, and (iv) $6.1 million in depreciation and amortization expense. Not included in the assumptions are (i) new market practice acquisitions completed after today's date, (ii) future gains or losses related to changes in estimates of earn-outs attributable to practice acquisitions, and (iii) any impact to adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income or adjusted diluted earnings per share as a result of the pending merger with Team Health.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (adjusted EBITDA), adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share.

During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, the Company reported a change in fair value of contingent consideration for acquired practices as operating expense pursuant to GAAP, which is referred to in this press release as the "net change in fair value of contingent consideration," or "net change in fair value". The fair value of accrued contingent consideration is largely determined using the income approach for estimating future consideration to be paid based on projected earnings of acquired practices as of specified measurement dates. Because accrued contingent consideration is generally based on a certain multiple of earnings of the acquired practices during a specified measurement period, a relatively small or moderate change in such projected earnings may result in a material change to the fair value of such contingent consideration liability with a corresponding adjustment to income from operations.

During the three months ended September 30, 2015, the Company also recorded certain general and administrative expenses not related to its normal operations. These expenses include transaction costs incurred related to the pending merger with Team Health, Inc. and certain incremental costs incurred above historical levels in connection with the False Claims Act (FCA) litigation with the U.S. government.

During the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, the Company recorded a decrease to expense of $341,000 and an increase of $2,390,000, respectively, as a net change in fair value, and during the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, the Company recorded an increase to expense of $5,517,000 and $1,312,000, respectively, as a net change in fair value. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company incurred transaction costs of $5,265,000 related to the pending merger with Team Health, and certain incremental costs, above historical level, of $1,710,000 related to the FCA litigation.

In this press release, GAAP financial measurements of net income and diluted earnings per share, as well as a non-GAAP financial measurement of EBITDA have been adjusted to exclude the amount of the net change in fair value of contingent consideration, transaction costs related to the pending merger with Team Health, and incremental costs related to the FCA litigation. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to management and investors reviewing financial and business trends related to its results of operations, and that when these non-GAAP financial measures are viewed with GAAP financial measures, investors are provided with a meaningful understanding of IPC's ongoing operating and financial performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financial measures.
