Management Comments
William Yarmuth, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We are pleased with our quarterly results as we produced record revenues and solid performance while continuing with the integration of recent significant acquisition activity. This is the first quarter in which our HCI segment has generated positive earnings without an ACO shared savings payment. In only two years since its inception, the HCI segment has established a meaningful business presence with an expectation of on-going profitability. Over the balance of 2016 we will continue to integrate our recent acquisitions, focus on the operation and growth of our existing operations and seek additional acquisition opportunities.”

Steve Guenthner, President added: “We remain optimistic about the future and comparatively favorable capital market and regulatory conditions. The recently released 2017 preliminary rule on Medicare home health reimbursement marks the last of four years of rebasing of home health rates. We feel CMS’ recently announced pre-claim review process, which may initially be somewhat burdensome, if properly implemented should serve to reduce real and perceived payment error rates and help build a relationship of trust between the Program and providers that is critical to home health achieving its real potential in the health care delivery system. We support CMS’ program integrity efforts and will continue to work with them to find the best approaches to implementation.”

Yarmuth concluded: “The knowledge we are gaining from our HCI investments and their overall role in various models to control costs through well managed care only reinforces our overarching thesis that home health care is essential to the future of and will play an ever growing part in our health care delivery system. We will build on this, and our accomplishments to date, as we seek to maintain our growth trajectory. I want to thank our 14,000+ employees for their continued commitment to our important mission-based work and express my confidence in our ability to continue to be a leader in the industry.”

Second Quarter Financial Results
VN segment net revenues increased $12.9 million to a record $110.7 million from $97.7 million in the prior year and total Medicare admissions grew by 5% to 23,920 from 22,782 primarily due to home health agencies acquired in late 2015 and early 2016. VN segment contribution increased $2.8 million, or 22.7%, to $15.3 million, from $12.5 million in the prior year period. Contribution margin as a percentage of revenue increased to 13.8% from 12.8%. On a same-store basis, Medicare admissions outside of Florida grew by 3.1%. The Company is continuing its efforts to improve the performance of its Florida business, however, with its growth and acquisition activity outside of the state, the impact of Florida performance on the Company’s operating results is lessening. Florida operations currently account for approximately one-fourth of VN segment revenues as compared to one-third a year ago and one-half three years ago.

PC segment net revenues increased $10.2 million or 34.6% to a record $39.7 million in 2016 from $29.5 million in 2015 primarily due to acquisitions. PC segment contribution decreased $0.6 million as compared to the same period of last year, primarily due to rate reductions in certain skilled elements of the Ohio Medicaid program as well as higher provision for bad debts in two Medicaid managed care states.

HCI segment net revenues increased $5.5 million to a record $5.6 million, in 2016 from $0.1 million in 2015. The HCI segment earned $0.03 EPS in its first quarter of profitability without an ACO-related shared savings payment. The HCI segment is expected to be profitable for the balance of 2016.

Corporate expenses as a percentage of revenue declined to 4.5%, from 5.4% in the prior year period. Deal, transition and other costs grew to $2.6 million for 2016, primarily as a result of costs related to 2016 and 2015 acquisitions. Borrowings related to acquisitions increased interest expense to $1.6 million, from $0.5 million in the prior year period.

Net cash from operating activities of $4.9 million was generated in the second quarter of 2016. Home Health accounts receivable days sales outstanding were 56 at the end of the second quarter of 2016 as compared to 59 at the end of the second quarter of 2015.

The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2016 and 2015 was 40.5% and 40.3%, respectively.

Year to Date Financial Results
VN segment net revenues increased $23.0 million to a record $220.3 million from $197.3 million in the prior year period and total Medicare admissions grew by 1.3% to 47,105 from 46,504 primarily due to home health agencies acquired in late 2015 and 2016. VN segment contribution increased $5.4 million, or 21.7%, to $30.3 million, from $24.9 million in the first half of last year. Contribution margin as a percentage of revenue increased to 13.7% from 12.6%. On a same-store basis, Medicare admissions outside of Florida grew organically by 2.8%. Within Florida, same store Medicare admissions in Florida in the first half of 2016 were 7.6% below the first half of 2015 which represented a high-water mark for Florida Medicare admissions.

PC segment net revenues increased $21.1 million or 36.3% to a record $79.4 million in 2016 from $58.2 million in 2015 primarily due to acquisitions. PC segment contribution increased 3.4% or $0.2 million as compared to the first half of last year.

HCI segment net revenues increased $9.8 million to a record $10.0 million in 2016 from $0.2 million in 2015. The HCI segment contribution improved $1.0 million over the first half of 2015.

Corporate expenses as a percentage of revenue declined to 4.7%, from 5.4% in the prior year period. Deal, transition and other costs grew to $5.2 million for 2016, primarily as a result of costs related to 2016 and 2015 acquisitions. Borrowings related to acquisitions increased interest expense to $2.9 million, from $0.9 million in the first half of 2015.

Net cash from operating activities of $10.4 million was generated in the first half of 2016, more than double the $5.1 million generated in the first half of 2015.

The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2016 and 2015 was 40.5% and 40.4%, respectively.

The Company noted that it will continue to pursue quality acquisitions of in-home health care service providers consistent with its stated strategy and the types of services its segments currently provide.

Medicare Program Developments
On June 27, 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued its proposed rule for 2017. CMS is proposing a 1.0% rate cut consisting of a 2.8% market basket update minus a 0.5% productivity adjustment, a 2.3% rebasing cut, and a 0.97% case mix adjustment. The proposed rule, which also proposes certain refinements to the Home Health Value-based Purchasing Model is currently open for comment. The final rule is expected to be released in late October 2016.

On June 8, 2016, CMS announced the “Pre-Claim Review Demonstration of Home Health Services” which seeks to demonstrate that a review of selected documentation prior to payment of claims can decrease “improper payments because of insufficient documentation”. According to the CMS announcement, the pre-claim review demonstration will help educate HHAs on what documentation is required and encourage them to submit the correct documentation, while still allowing the HHA to begin providing services and receive initial payments prior to the pre-claim review decision. The pre-claim review demonstration will begin in Illinois no earlier than August 1, 2016 and the remaining states of Florida, Texas, Michigan and Massachusetts will phase in over 2016 and 2017. The Company is currently unable to predict what impact, if any, this demonstration program may have on its results of operations or financial position.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The information provided in some of the tables in this release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under SEC rules. In accordance with SEC rules, the Company has provided, in the supplemental information, a reconciliation of those measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share
Adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share are not measures of financial performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. They should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities, or any other measure calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The presentation of adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share provides investors with pertinent information to enable comparison of financial performance between periods by excluding certain items that the Company believes are not representative of its ongoing operations due to the nature of the items.

Adjusted EBITDA
Adjusted earnings before interest, income tax, depreciation and amortization, amortization of stock-based compensation, deal, transition and other (Adjusted EBITDA) is not a measure of financial performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. It should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flows from operating, investing or financing activities, or any other measure calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA Operations are significant components in understanding and evaluating financial performance and liquidity. Management routinely calculates and communicates Adjusted EBITDA Operations and believes that it is useful to investors because it provides a common analytical indicator within our industry to evaluate performance, measure leverage capacity and debt service ability, and to estimate current or prospective enterprise value. Adjusted EBITDA is also used in certain covenants contained in our credit agreement.
