BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Nov. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diversicare Healthcare Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:DVCR), a premier provider of long-term care services, today announced its results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017.

On October 26, 2017, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.055 per common share payable to shareholders of record as of December 31, 2017, to be paid on January 15, 2017.

Third Quarter 2017 Highlights

  • Net revenue increased to $146.4 million in the third quarter of 2017 from $97.3 million in the third quarter of 2016, an increase of 50.4%, primarily attributable to the 22 Alabama and Mississippi nursing centers acquired in the fourth quarter of 2016 and Park Place in Selma, Alabama in July 2017.

  • Net loss from continuing operations was $(0.6) million, or $(0.09) per share, in the third quarter of 2017, compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $(1.0) million, or $(0.16) per share, in the third quarter of 2016.

  • Adjusted EBITDA was $3.9 million in the third quarter of 2017 compared to $2.2 million in the third quarter of 2016.

See below for a reconciliation of all GAAP and non-GAAP financial results.

CEO Remarks

Commenting on the results, Kelly Gill, Diversicare’s CEO, stated, “The third quarter 2017 presented several challenges to our company. We continue to face industry headwinds with skilled patient mix, and five of our centers were affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Despite these challenges, the financial and operational impacts were contained due to our hardworking and ambitious team members. I am proud of and thankful for our dedicated team of caregivers. Their heroic and selfless actions led to no evacuations during the storms and the opportunity to provide continuous care for our patients and residents.

Mr. Gill concluded, "As previously mentioned, we completed an acquisition of a center located in Selma, Alabama effective July 1, 2017. I am pleased to announce our rapid integration of this center onto our operating platform, and we are already seeing positive operational and financial results."

Patient Revenues

Patient revenues were $146.4 million and $97.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, an increase of $49.1 million. The following table summarizes the revenue fluctuations attributable to our portfolio growth (in thousands):

Three Months Ended September 30,
2017 2016 Change
Same-store revenue$96,889 $97,313 $(424)
2016 acquisition revenue47,244 47,244
2017 acquisition revenue2,244 2,244
Total revenue$146,377 $97,313 $49,064

The overall increase in revenues of $49.1 million is primarily attributable to revenue contributions from the acquisition of the Golden Living operations in Alabama and Mississippi during the fourth quarter of 2016 and Park Place during the third quarter of 2017 of $49.5 million combined.

On a same-store center basis, the average Medicare and Medicaid rate per patient day for the third quarter of 2017 increased compared to the third quarter of 2016, resulting in increases in revenue of $0.6 million and $0.6 million, respectively, or 2.6% and 1.2%, respectively. Our same-store Medicare and Medicaid average daily census for the third quarter of 2017 decreased $1.8 million and $0.6 million, or 8.0% and 1.2%, respectively. Conversely our Managed Care average daily census for the third quarter of 2017 increased $0.8 million or 14.2%.

Expenses

Operating expense increased in the third quarter of 2017 to $118.1 million as compared to $79.4 million in the third quarter of 2016. Operating expense decreased as a percentage of revenue at 80.7% for the third quarter of 2017 as compared to 81.6% for the third quarter of 2016. The following table summarizes the expense increases attributable to our portfolio growth (in thousands):

Three Months Ended September 30,
2017 2016 Change
Same-store operating expense$78,886 $79,441 $(555)
2016 acquisition expense37,355 37,355
2017 acquisition expense1,863 1,863
Total expense$118,104 $79,441 $38,663

The overall increase in operating expense of $38.7 million is primarily attributable to the acquisition of the Golden Living operations in Alabama and Mississippi during the fourth quarter of 2016 of $37.4 million and Park Place during the third quarter of 2017 of $1.9 million.

On a same-store center basis, operating expenses slightly decreased by $0.6 million, which is attributable to favorable variances in bad debt expense, health insurance costs, and provider taxes of $0.6 million, $0.2 million and $0.2 million, respectively, in third quarter of 2017 compared to the third quarter of 2016. Conversely our same-store salaries and related taxes increased by $0.6 million in third quarter of 2017 compared to the third quarter of 2016.

One of the largest components of operating expenses is wages, which increased to $69.4 million during the third quarter of 2017 as compared to $46.2 million in the third quarter of 2016, which, consistent with above, is due primarily to acquisition activity.

Lease expense increased in the third quarter of 2017 to $13.8 million as compared to $6.9 million in the third quarter of 2016. The increase in lease expense was primarily attributable to the 22 newly leased centers in Alabama and Mississippi, which occurred during the fourth quarter of 2016.

Professional liability expense was $2.6 million and $2.0 million in the third quarters of 2017 and 2016, respectively. Our cash expenditures for professional liability costs of continuing operations were $1.7 million and $1.2 million for the third quarters of 2017 and 2016, respectively. Professional liability expense and cash expenditures fluctuate from year to year based respectively on the results of our third-party professional liability actuarial studies and on the costs incurred in defending and settling existing claims. See “Liquidity and Capital Resources” for further discussion of the accrual for professional liability.

General and administrative expense was $8.1 million in the third quarter of 2017 as compared to $7.4 million in the third quarter of 2016, an increase of $0.7 million, but conversely decreased as a percentage of revenue from 7.6% in 2016 to 5.5% in 2017. The increase in general and administrative expense is attributable to an increase in corporate wages and payroll taxes, travel and health insurance costs by $0.9 million, $0.1 million and $0.1 million, respectively, which is due to the acquisition of 22 new centers during the fourth quarter of 2016. The increase was partially offset by a $0.7 million decrease in legal costs during third quarter of 2017 compared to the third quarter of 2016, which is also related to the 2016 acquisitions.

Depreciation and amortization expense was approximately $3.0 million in the third quarter of 2017 as compared to $2.0 million in 2016. The increase in depreciation expense relates to fixed assets at the newly leased centers.

The Company ceased operations at our Carthage, Mississippi center in September 2017, which resulted in a $0.2 million cash termination payment, net of legal costs, in the third quarter of 2017. This was recorded as lease termination receipts during third quarter of 2017.

Interest expense was $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2017 and $1.2 million in the third quarter of 2016, an increase of $0.5 million. The increase was primarily attributable to higher debt balances in 2017 as a result of the change in ownership processes for the newly leased Alabama and Mississippi centers.

Hurricane costs of $0.2 million were included during the third quarter 2017, which related to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

As a result of the above, continuing operations reported a loss of $0.9 million before income taxes for the third quarter of 2017 as compared to a loss of $1.5 million for the third quarter of 2016. The provision for income taxes was less than $0.1 million for the third quarter of 2017, and the benefit for income taxes was $0.5 million for the third quarter of 2016. Both basic and diluted loss per common share from continuing operations were $0.09 for the third quarter of 2017 as compared to both basic and diluted loss per common share from continuing operations of $0.16 in the third quarter of 2016.

Receivables

Our net receivables balance increased $1.7 million to $63.9 million as of September 30, 2017, from $62.2 million as of December 31, 2016. The increase in accounts receivable is attributable to the 22 newly leased centers in Alabama and Mississippi.

We have included certain financial measures in this press release, including EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net income (loss) and Funds Provided by Operations which are “non-GAAP financial measures” using accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) and using adjustments to GAAP (non-GAAP). These non-GAAP measures are not measurements under GAAP. These measurements should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, the information contained in our financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP. We define EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted for loss (income) from discontinued operations, interest expense, income tax and depreciation and amortization. We define Adjusted EBITDA as EBITDA adjusted for acquisition-related, debt retirement, lease termination and lease deferral costs. We define Adjusted Net income (loss) as Net income (loss) adjusted for acquisition-related costs, lease termination costs, lease deferral costs, debt retirement costs and income (loss) from discontinued operations. Funds Provided by Operations is defined as net income from operating activities adjusted for the cash effect of professional liability and other non-cash charges. Management believes that Funds Provided by Operations is an important performance measurement because it eliminates the effect of actuarial assumptions on our professional liability reserves, includes the cash effect of professional liability payments, and does not include the effects of deferred tax benefit and other non-cash charges.

Our measurements of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net income (loss) and Funds Provided by Operations may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. We have included information concerning EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net income (loss) and Funds Provided by Operations in this press release because we believe that such information is used by certain investors as measures of a company’s historical performance. Management believes that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net income (loss) are important performance measurements because they eliminate certain nonrecurring start-up losses and separation costs. Management believes that Funds Provided by Operations is an important performance measurement because it eliminates the effect of actuarial assumptions on our professional liability reserves, includes the cash effect of professional liability payments, and does not include the effects of deferred taxes and other non-cash items. Our presentation of EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net income (loss) and Funds Provided by Operations should not be construed as an inference that our future results will be unaffected by unusual or nonrecurring items.
