LOS ANGELES, March 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RadNet, Inc. (NASDAQ:RDNT), a national leader in providing high-quality, cost-effective, fixed-site outpatient diagnostic imaging services through a network of 300 owned and/or operated outpatient imaging centers, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2015.

Financial Results

Fourth Quarter Report:

For the fourth quarter of 2015, RadNet reported Revenue of $215.7 million, Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $32.6 million and Net Income of $881,000. Revenue increased $30.2 million (or 16.3%), Adjusted EBITDA(1) increased $608,000 (or 1.9%) and Net Income decreased $3.3 million over the fourth quarter of 2014.

Net Income for the fourth quarter was $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a Net Income of $0.10 per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2014. These per share values are based upon a weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding of 46.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 and 44.2 million of diluted shares outstanding in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Affecting Net Income in the fourth quarter of 2015 were certain non-cash expenses and non-recurring items including: $1.2 million of non-cash employee stock compensation expense resulting from the vesting of certain options and restricted stock; $1.1 million legal settlement related to an unusual medical malpractice case; $448,000 of severance paid in connection with headcount reductions related to cost savings initiatives; $92,000 loss on the disposal of certain capital equipment; $611,000 gain on the sale of imaging centers; and $1.4 million of amortization of deferred financing fees and discount on issuance of debt related to our existing credit facilities.

For the fourth quarter of 2015, as compared with the prior year’s fourth quarter, MRI volume increased 14.2%, CT volume increased 12.0% and PET/CT volume increased 12.7%. Overall volume, taking into account routine imaging exams, inclusive of x-ray, ultrasound, mammography and other exams, increased 16.2% over the prior year’s fourth quarter. On a same-center basis, including only those centers which were part of RadNet for both the fourth quarters of 2015 and 2014, MRI volume increased 4.8%, CT volume increased 5.8% and PET/CT volume increased 3.3%. Overall same-center volume, taking into account routine imaging exams, inclusive of x-ray, ultrasound, mammography and other exams, increased 3.0% over the prior year’s same quarter.

Dr. Howard Berger, President and Chief Executive Officer of RadNet, commented “We made a number of strides in the fourth quarter, many of which position us for improved performance during 2016. The most important one was related to integrating our recently acquired operations of Diagnostic Imaging Group and New York Radiology Partners. For acquisitions of this magnitude, it often takes two to three quarters of focused attention from all of our operational disciplines to right-size and optimize these businesses. Among other things, efforts include migrating billing and site-level clinical systems, evaluating, training and enhancing the capabilities of personnel, revamping marketing and branding strategies and migrating supply relationships and vendor contracts.”

Dr. Berger continued, “During the quarter, we also made a final push to complete the migration of certain information technology systems to common platforms. This included our eRAD clinical operating system and our billing platform. In regards to our billing systems, by the end of the second quarter of 2016, we will have completed the migration of our financial operations to a new billing software after changing course mid last year, which led us away from using an alternative provider.”

“While I’m happy to report that we completed much of this necessary heavy-lifting associated with these efforts, the integration of the acquired operations and the migration of our information technology systems negatively affected the profitability performance of our company during the quarter. During the quarter, we estimate a $4 million negative impact associated with the expenses related to the Diagnostic Imaging Group and NYRP integrations as well as the addition of an accounts receivable reserve associated with the collectability of certain patient accounts affected by the billing system migration. This combined impact was the primary reason for us falling short of our EBITDA expectations for the quarter and the year.”

“While it’s not pleasant to absorb the short term impact from these initiatives, I’m confident there will be no ongoing effects. We expect that both Diagnostic Imaging Group and NYRP will meet their projections in 2016 and that RadNet will benefit substantially from being on one information technology platform for each of billing and clinical operations,” concluded Dr. Berger.

Annual Report:

For full year 2015, the Company reported Revenue of $809.6 million, Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $121.7 million and Net Income of $7.7 million. Revenue increased $92.1 million (or 12.8%) and Adjusted EBITDA(1) decreased $4.8 million (or 3.8%). Net Income for 2015 was $0.17 per diluted share, compared to Net Income of $0.03 per diluted share in 2014 (based upon a weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding of 45.2 million and 43.1 million in 2015 and 2014, respectively).

Affecting Net Income in 2015 were certain non-cash expenses and non-recurring items including: $7.6 million of non-cash employee stock compensation expense resulting from the vesting of certain options and restricted stock; $1.1 million legal settlement related to an unusual medical malpractice case; $745,000 of severance paid in connection with headcount reductions related to cost savings initiatives; $866,000 loss on the disposal of certain capital equipment; $5.4 gain on the sale of imaging centers; and $5.4 million of amortization and write off of deferred financing fees and discount on issuance of debt related to our existing credit facilities and refinancing transaction.

For the year ended December 31, 2015, as compared to 2014, MRI volume increased 12.8%, CT volume increased 13.0% and PET/CT volume increased 6.9%. Overall volume, taking into account routine imaging exams, inclusive of x-ray, ultrasound, mammography and other exams, increased 12.8% for the twelve months of 2015 over 2014.

Actual 2015 Results vs. 2015 Guidance:

The following compares the Company’s actual 2015 performance with previously announced revised guidance levels.

Revised Guidance RangeActual Results
Guidance Revenue (a)$825 million - $850 million $845.7 million
Adjusted EBITDA(1)$125 million - $130 million$121.7 million
Capital Expenditures (b)$45 million - $50 million$49.4 million
Cash Interest Expense$35 million - $38 million$36.0 million
Free Cash Flow Generation (c) $37 million - $45 million$36.3 million

(a) Service Fee Revenue, net of contractual allowances plus Revenue under capitation arrangements. This excludes the provision for bad debts.

(b) Net of proceeds from the sale of equipment, imaging centers and joint venture interests.

(c) Defined by the Company as Adjusted EBITDA(1) less total capital expenditures and cash paid for interest.

2016 Fiscal Year Guidance

For its 2016 fiscal year, RadNet announces its guidance ranges as follows:

Total Net Revenue (a)$870 million - $910 million
Adjusted EBITDA(1)$130 million - $140 million
Capital Expenditures (b)$45 million - $50 million
Cash Interest Expense$37 million - $40 million
Free Cash Flow Generation (c) $40 million - $50 million

(a) Note the change from prior years. This metric is now after the subtraction of bad debt.

(b) Net of proceeds from the sale of equipment, imaging centers and joint venture interests.

(c) Defined by the Company as Adjusted EBITDA(1) less total capital expenditures and cash paid for interest.

Dr. Berger commented, “As reflected in our guidance, we are optimistic about 2016. First, 2016 is the first year since 2006 that we will avoid a negative reimbursement impact from Medicare. This gives us the year to focus on improving our business in the absence of external pressures on pricing. Second, we will experience the full-year contributions of the New York Radiology Partners and Diagnostic Imaging Group acquisitions, completed in April and October of last year, respectively. Lastly, in the fourth quarter of 2015, we commenced a number of initiatives focused on increasing Revenue and lowering costs that should amount to $7-10 million of contribution during 2016. With respect to Revenues, we are in the midst negotiating for increased capitation rates from several of our newer contracts which began in late 2014. These contracts negatively impacted our profitability in 2015 because of expenses we incurred related to unanticipated utilization and capacity issues. Additionally, we are renegotiating certain commercial payer contracts in several of our east coast markets, which we also anticipate will result in material increases to our Revenue in those regions. Furthermore, additional Revenue is expected in 2016 from our steady adoption of 3D breast imaging. Medicare is already reimbursing for these services and private health plans and patients are more willing to incur additional cost to have these more advanced procedures.”

Dr. Berger continued, “With respect to costs, we are working on a number of initiatives to lower our operating expenses. These include projects to lower costs related to telecommunications and connectivity, equipment service (most notably on our routine imaging), savings from medical supply vendors and employee health plan efficiencies. While I’m certain that these revenue and enhancements and cost savings are available to the company, the key for our management team is to execute these initiatives as quickly as possible so that more of their benefits can be realized during 2016.”

Footnotes

(1) The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, each from continuing operations and excludes losses or gains on the disposal of equipment, other income or loss, loss on debt extinguishments, bargain purchase gains and non-cash equity compensation. Adjusted EBITDA includes equity earnings in unconsolidated operations and subtracts allocations of earnings to non-controlling interests in subsidiaries, and is adjusted for non-cash and extraordinary events which took place during the period.

Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled to its nearest comparable GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure used as analytical indicator by RadNet management and the healthcare industry to assess business performance, and is a measure of leverage capacity and ability to service debt. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income, cash flows generated by operating, investing or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity. As Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and is therefore susceptible to varying methods of calculation, this metric, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

(2) As noted above, the Company defines Free Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA less total Capital Expenditures (whether completed with cash or financed) and Cash Interest paid. Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company uses Free Cash Flow because the Company believes it provides useful information for investors and management because it measures our capacity to generate cash from our operating activities. Free Cash Flow does not represent total cash flow since it does not include the cash flows generated by or used in financing activities. In addition, our definition of Free Cash Flow may differ from definitions used by other companies.

Free Cash Flow should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income, cash flows generated by operating, investing or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity. As Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and is therefore susceptible to varying methods of calculation, this metric, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
