Hanger Announces Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2018

 

Company to relist on the New York Stock Exchange in mid-September

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Hanger Inc. (OTC PINK: HNGR), a leading provider of orthotic and prosthetic patient care services and solutions, today announced its financial results for its second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2018.

Financial Highlights for the Second Quarter of 2018

  • Net revenue of $267.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $263.4 million for the same period in 2017, reflecting net revenue growth of 1.4 percent year-over-year. Both business segments reflected positive growth over the prior year quarter.
     
  • GAAP net income of $12.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $1.6 million for the same period in 2017.
     
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $33.6 million in the second quarter of 2018 compared to $36.8 million in the second quarter of 2017, a decline of $3.2 million, or 8.6 percent. The Adjusted EBITDA decline was largely the result of a $2.6 million increase in corporate and other expense year-over-year, relating primarily to investments in growth and other corporate initiatives.
     
  • GAAP general and administrative expense includes favorable settlements totaling $2.2 million on a pretax basis. These settlement amounts are excluded for purposes of calculating Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted diluted earnings per share.
     
  • GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.35 for the second quarter of 2018, compared to earnings of $0.04 per share in the second quarter of 2017. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.28 for the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to earnings of $0.21 per share for the same period in 2017.
     
  • Net cash provided by operating activities was $25.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $5.3 million for the same period in 2017.

Vinit Asar, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hanger, Inc., stated, "We are pleased to report positive net revenue growth in both the Patient Care and Products & Services business segments during the quarter. In addition, we delivered significantly higher income from operations and net income year-over-year, primarily from lower interest expense resulting from the refinancing we completed in March, as well as lower third party professional fees."

Mr. Asar continued, "The portfolio of patient care programs and initiatives we are executing to drive sustainable operating growth are yielding promising results. Same clinic revenue growth per day improved to 1.7 percent compared to 1.1 percent in the first quarter. While Adjusted EBITDA declined year-over-year in the quarter, this largely reflects investments we believe will be beneficial to the achievement of our growth objectives, and our year-to-date Adjusted EBITDA is generally consistent with our prior year performance. We are excited about the momentum in our patient care and distribution businesses and look forward to re-listing our common stock on the New York Stock Exchange, which we anticipate will occur in mid-September."

Detailed Results: Three Months Ended June 30, 2018

Patient Care Segment

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, the Company's Patient Care net revenue was $218.2 million, an increase of $1.9 million, or 0.9 percent, compared to the same period of 2017. Net revenue growth was primarily the result of an increase in the rate of same clinic revenue growth.

  • Same clinic revenue per day grew 1.7 percent for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This growth was primarily driven by increased revenue from prosthetic services compared to the prior year.
     
  • Effective in January of 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers" ("ASC 606"), a new revenue accounting standard. In the second quarter of 2018, this change had the effect of reclassifying $1.3 million of what previously would have been reflected as bad debt expense within the Patient Care segment to be a reduction in revenue.

Income from operations in the Patient Care segment was $35.0 million during the second quarter of 2018, which reflected a decline of $0.2 million, compared to the $35.2 million reported in the prior year. Adjusted EBITDA for the segment was $41.2 million, which reflected a $0.3 million decline over the prior year period.

  • The earnings flow-through resulting from segment revenue growth during the quarter was offset primarily by higher employee salaries, benefits and material costs expenses compared with the prior year quarter. Salary expense comparison to the prior year quarter was negatively impacted by a change in the timing of annual employee salary increases from June in 2017 to April in 2018.

Products & Services Segment

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, the Company's Products & Services net revenue totaled $48.8 million, which reflected a $1.6 million, or 3.5 percent, increase compared to the same period in 2017.

  • Revenue growth for the segment came from increases in the distribution of O&P componentry to independent providers of $2.7 million, which was partially offset by decreases in revenue from therapeutic solutions.

Income from operations for the Products & Services segment increased by $0.3 million to $7.5 million in the second quarter of 2018. Adjusted EBITDA for the Products & Services segment was $9.8 million during the second quarter of 2018, which reflected a $0.3 million decrease compared with the same period of 2017. Earnings flow-through on revenue growth for the segment was offset by increased personnel costs.

Corporate and Other

The loss from operations relating to corporate and other activities decreased by $3.7 million to $22.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018. This decrease primarily related to a $4.3 million reduction in professional accounting and legal fees as well as a $2.2 million benefit related to the favorable settlement of two matters:

  • The Company's receipt of a $1.7 million payment for its long-standing damage claims related to the "Deepwater Horizon" disaster, which affected the Company's operations in 2010.
     
  • The Company's results also reflected a benefit associated with its $2.2 million settlement of outstanding unclaimed property claims with the State of Delaware for periods of 2001 to 2017, which was $0.5 million lower than its historically accrued amount.

Excluding the effect of third party professional fees related to financial statement remediation, the benefit of the settlements, depreciation and amortization, and non-cash equity compensation expense, the net cost of corporate and other activities increased by $2.6 million on an Adjusted EBITDA basis to $17.4 million.

  • Increased corporate expenses related primarily to the incurrence of $1.7 million for growth and other corporate initiatives.
     
  • Corporate personnel expense grew by $0.9 million as compared to the second quarter of 2017. Comparisons for the quarter were adversely affected by a change in the timing of implementation of annual merit increases from June in 2017 to April in 2018.

Net Income; Interest Expense

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, net income was $12.9 million compared with net income of $1.6 million in the same period of 2017. The improvement in net income compared to the prior year was due primarily to lower interest expense, professional accounting and legal fees, and depreciation and amortization expense.

  • Interest expense for the second quarter of 2018 declined to $7.3 million from $14.1 million in the same period of 2017. This $6.8 million decrease resulted primarily from lower interest expense associated with the Company's debt refinancing in March 2018, as well as a $1.5 million interest expense benefit related to the unclaimed property settlement with the State of Delaware.
     
  • Professional accounting and legal fees of $4.2 million reflected a decrease of $4.3 million as compared to the second quarter of 2017. This decrease was the result of a reduction in costs associated with the Company's ongoing financial statement remediation efforts.

Liquidity

On June 30, 2018, the Company had liquidity of $142.9 million, comprised of $48.8 million in cash and cash equivalents, and $94.1 million in available borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility, compared to liquidity of $127.0 million on March 31, 2018. The increase in liquidity of $15.9 from March 31, 2018 resulted from the positive cash flow from operations of $25.4 million generated in the second quarter of 2018.

Financial Highlights for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2018

  • Net revenue of $501.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $497.1 million for the same period in 2017, reflecting net revenue growth of 0.8 percent year-over-year.
     
    • Patient Care net revenue grew $2.8 million, or 0.7 percent, for the year-to-date, driven by same clinic revenue growth per day of 1.4 percent.
       
    • Year-to-date Products & Services net revenue grew $1.1 million, or 1.2 percent, as a result of growth of $3.5 million in distribution services, offset by a decrease in revenue from therapeutic solutions.
       
  • GAAP net loss was $9.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018, compared to a $16.1 million net loss for the same period in 2017. Results for the year-to-date ending June 30, 2018 include $17.0 million in pre-tax loss on the extinguishment of debt related to the Company's March 2018 refinancing.
     
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $49.9 million for the first six months of 2018 was generally comparable with the $51.1 million in the prior year period, reflecting a decline of $1.2 million.

2018 Outlook

The Company reaffirms its 2018 outlook, as previously disclosed on May 14th 2018, that it anticipates net revenue and Adjusted EBITDA to be generally consistent with 2017 results. Guidance for the full year 2018 is subject to material change as the Company continues to evaluate its expectations.

                                                                                                                                                     (dollars in thousands)


    EBITDA is defined as operating income before depreciation and amortization.  Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income before certain charges, impairments of intangible assets, third-party professional fees in excess of normal amounts incurred in connection with our financial
     statement remediation, debt extinguishment costs, expenses associated with equity-based compensation, severance expenses associated with significant reductions in force and expenses incurred in connection with our acquisitions.

    We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as measures to assess the relative level of our indebtedness and our compliance with certain debt covenants which are based on these measures.   Additionally, we utilize these measures to assess our operating and financial performance.   We believe
     that these measures enhance a user's understanding of normal operating income excluding certain charges, depreciation and amortization.

    Neither EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA are measures of financial performance computed in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP") and should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operations, or other
     statement of operations or cash flow data prepared in conformity with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.  In addition, the calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations, and the amounts presented may not be
     comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be indicative of historical operating results, and we do not intend these measures to be predictive of future results of operations.

    Earnings Per Share (or "EPS") is defined as net income divided by our diluted common shares during the applicable period.   Adjusted EPS is defined as EPS adjusted for impairments of intangible assets, third-party professional fees in excess of normal amounts incurred in connection
     with our financial statement remediation, debt extinguishment costs, severance expenses associated with significant reductions in force and expenses incurred in connection with our acquisitions and certain other charges.

    We utilize Adjusted EPS to assess our operating and financial performance.   We believe that this measure enhances a user's understanding of normal operating results excluding certain charges.

    Adjusted EPS is not a measure of financial performance computed in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operations, or other statement of operations or cash flow data prepared in conformity
     with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.  In addition, the calculation of Adjusted EPS is susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations, and the amounts presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.  Adjusted EPS may not be
     indicative of historical operating results, and we do not intend these measures to be predictive of future results of operations.

    EBITDA is defined as operating income before depreciation and amortization.  Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income before certain charges, impairments of intangible assets, third-party professional fees in excess of normal amounts incurred in connection with our financial
     statement remediation, debt extinguishment costs, expenses associated with equity-based compensation, severance expenses associated with significant reductions in force and expenses incurred in connection with our acquisitions.

    We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as measures to assess the relative level of our indebtedness and our compliance with certain debt covenants which are based on these measures.   Additionally, we utilize these measures to assess our operating and financial performance.   We believe that
     these measures enhance a user's understanding of normal operating income excluding certain charges, depreciation and amortization.

    Neither EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA are measures of financial performance computed in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operations, or other statement of operations or cash flow data prepared
     in conformity with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.  In addition, the calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations, and the amounts presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.
     EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be indicative of historical operating results, and we do not intend these measures to be predictive of future results of operations.
