Healthways Reports Third-Quarter 2016 Financial Results

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Healthways (NASDAQ:HWAY) today announced financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Third-Quarter 2016 Financial Highlights

  • A 10.1% increase in revenues to $125.0 million from $113.5 million for the third quarter of 2015.

  • Net income from continuing operations of $4.8 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to $13.0 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2015.

  • Adjusted net income from continuing operations of $11.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted share (see pages 12-13 for a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures), which excludes:

    • Income tax expense of $15.6 million related to recording a tax provision for the first half of 2016 that was not previously required because in the first half of 2016 taxable profits from continuing operations were offset by tax benefits on losses from the now-discontinued operations.

    • Income tax benefits of $9.6 million due to a reversal of the deferred tax asset valuation allowance initially recorded in the fourth quarter of 2015;

    • Pre-tax costs of $1.1 million related to restructuring corporate support infrastructure.

Based upon profitable results from its continuing operations and evidence of continued profitability into the future, the Company has recorded a significant tax benefit in the third-quarter 2016 financial results from reversing valuation allowances against deferred tax assets. The Company now expects to return to a normalized effective tax rate of approximately 40%. Although the Company will record tax expense based upon the normalized effective tax rate, the Company expects that cash payments for taxes will be substantially offset by Net Operating Loss (NOL) carryforwards through 2017 and a portion of 2018. In the information that follows, the Company places emphasis on separating the portion of the third-quarter financial results from continuing operations from the portion that is recognized in the third quarter, but that is attributable to changes to the overall tax profile.

Additional Third-Quarter and Nine Months (YTD) 2016 Financial Highlights

  • Third-quarter 2016 EBITDA from continuing operations of $24.4 million compared to $28.2 million for the third quarter of 2015 (see pages 12-13 for a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures).

    • EBITDA from continuing operations of $24.4 million includes $1.1 million of restructuring costs, $0.7 million of business separation costs (that the Company outlined in its second quarter 2016 earnings release) and $1.9 million of colleague incentive compensation accruals. None of these costs were incurred in the third quarter of 2015.

  • YTD 2016 EBITDA from continuing operations of $75.6 million compared to $75.7 million for YTD 2015 (see pages 12–13 for a reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures).

    • YTD 2016 EBITDA from continuing operations of $75.6 million includes $1.1 million of restructuring costs, $0.7 million of business separation costs (that the Company outlined in its second quarter 2016 earnings release) and $8.8 million of colleague incentive compensation accruals. None of these costs were incurred YTD in 2015. YTD 2015 EBITDA included $4.5 million of CEO separation expenses that are not repeated in YTD 2016 EBITDA.

“Our third-quarter and YTD financial results from continuing operations were quite consistent sequentially and illustrate the strength of the Company’s Network Solutions business,” said Donato Tramuto, Healthways Chief Executive Officer. “We continue to benefit from strong demand for our solutions in the Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplemental and commercial health plan markets. After spending much of the third quarter visiting with many of our largest clients, we have gained a greater appreciation for the value those clients place on the outcomes of our solutions, our brands and the stickiness that those brands have with our clients’ members. At the same time, we have been hard at work with our restructuring and business separation processes following the sale of our Total Population Health (TPH) business at the end of July. Excluding restructuring and business separation costs, EBITDA margin was 21% for the third quarter and stands at 20.6% YTD. We have achieved these results and at the same time are rewarding our colleagues, whose hard work and dedication deliver outstanding client and member satisfaction quarter after quarter. We are re-investing in the business and we are investing in our colleagues, who will help us capitalize on the excellent growth opportunities before us.”

As previously announced, Healthways is incurring certain costs in the second half of 2016 to separate its Network Solutions business from the TPH business that it divested at the end of July. These costs relate primarily to the separation of IT and physical infrastructure, as well as corporate rebranding expenses and are now expected to total approximately $4 million to $5 million, compared with an initial estimate of $4 million to $6 million. The Company incurred $0.7 million of these costs in the third quarter.

The Company also initiated the previously announced restructuring of its corporate support infrastructure in the third quarter, which is now estimated to cost approximately $6 million to $7 million compared with an initial estimate of $5 million to $7 million. With $1.1 million of these costs incurred in the third quarter, the Company expects to incur the majority of the remaining costs in the fourth quarter and the balance in the first quarter of 2017. Beginning in 2017, this reorganization is expected to produce annualized cost savings of approximately $15 million to $16 million. Some of these savings - perhaps as much as half - are expected to be reinvested into business initiatives that will help drive increased growth.

Pre-Tax Losses and NOLs

Net income from discontinued operations for the third quarter of 2016 was $51.2 million, or $1.33 per diluted share. This includes three elements: (1) an incremental pre-tax loss of $38.7 million from discontinued operations on top of the loss estimated in the second quarter of 2016 upon classification of the TPH business as assets held for sale, qualifying as a discontinued operation; (2) losses of $15.5 million from the results of operations of the discontinued operations for July 2016; and (3) an income tax benefit of $105.3 million. The tax benefit reflects the full impact of ordinary losses incurred in connection with the sale of the TPH business that the Company estimated and recognized in the second quarter of 2016, without tax benefit, and that was finalized in the third quarter. The incremental pre-tax loss on the sale recognized in the third quarter included additional transaction costs, notably the $25 million payment to Sharecare, Inc. at the closing of the sale of the TPH business. The Company recognized approximately $117 million of NOL carryforwards during the third quarter of 2016 attributable to 2016 results. As of September 30, 2016, the Company now has a total of $188 million in NOLs available for use in future periods.

Debt Profile

The Company’s ratio of total debt to trailing 12 months EBITDA at September 30, 2016, as calculated under its credit facility, increased as expected to approximately 2.4 from approximately 2.0 at June 30, 2016, had the ratio at June 30 been calculated under the Company’s current credit facility. The Company expects that fourth-quarter EBITDA generation and significantly improved cash flow, compared with the third quarter, will result in debt reduction and that it will end 2016 with funded debt at approximately $215 million to $225 million. The reduced level of funded debt is also due to the conversion of a $20 million convertible subordinated promissory note by CareFirst Holdings, LLC in exchange for 892,458 shares of Healthways common stock in October 2016.

Outlook

“We expect that our fourth-quarter operating results will be comparable within a modest range to the first three quarters of 2016 and that depreciation and amortization and interest expense will be reduced modestly as a percentage of revenue,” Mr. Tramuto added. “With good visibility to this performance for the fourth quarter, we continue to expect to end 2016 with revenue greater than $500 million, EBITDA margins, excluding restructuring and business separation costs, above 20% and an organic revenue growth rate heading into 2017 in at least the upper-single digit range. In addition, we continue to believe that after the completion of our separation-related activities and expenses, the annualized savings from our corporate infrastructure restructuring work will drive the Company’s EBITDA margin in 2017 to be solidly in excess of 20%, consistent with where it has been for many years in the Network Solutions business.”

Executive Appointments

Mr. Tramuto continued, “We are well down the path to returning Healthways to consistent, predictable, profitable growth. Healthways’ ‘A-B-C’ strategy is designed to add new members and build engagement among current members in our existing three networks - SilverSneakers®, Prime® Fitness and Physical Medicine - while at the same time identifying ways to collaborate with partners to add new products and services that will leverage the value of our brand. In mid-September we announced our new organizational structure to support that strategy. Janet Calhoun, a 27-year Healthways veteran and our Chief Experience Officer (CXO), is leading a thorough analysis of member engagement opportunities and is implementing plans we believe will increase member participation. Since our mid-September announcement, we have added Ulya Khan as our Chief Operating and Product Officer. Ulya has experience developing and managing networks and is adept at building and leading high performing teams that deliver extraordinary results, which will be essential in the successful execution of our strategy moving forward.”

(1) Adjusted net income from continuing operations and adjusted net income from continuing operations per share are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company excludes net loss attributable to income tax expense related to six months ended June 30, 2016, the reversal of deferred tax asset valuation allowance, corporate support infrastructure restructuring charges, and CEO separation expenses from these measures because of their comparability to the Company's historical operating results. 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 adjusted net income from continuing operations and adjusted net income from continuing operations per share in isolation or as a substitute for net income from continuing operations or net income from continuing operations per share determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

(2) Net loss attributable to income tax expense related to six months ended June 30, 2016 totals $15,602,000 and is related to the incremental tax provision for the first half of 2016, a period in which no income tax provision was recorded as a result of off-setting tax benefits on losses from the now-discontinued operations.

(3) Net income attributable to the reversal of a deferred tax asset valuation allowance during the three months ended September 30, 2016 totals $9,615,000 and is due to a reversal of the deferred tax asset valuation allowance recorded in the fourth quarter of 2015.

(4) Net loss attributable to restructuring charges consists of pre-tax charges of $1,129,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2016 associated with the 2016 restructuring of corporate support infrastructure.
