American Renal Associates Holdings, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2019 Results

November 5, 2019

BEVERLY, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 5, 2019--

American Renal Associates Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ARA) (the “Company”), a leading kidney care and dialysis provider focused on partnering with local nephrologists, today announced financial and operating results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Certain metrics, including those expressed on an adjusted basis, are Non-GAAP financial measures (See “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the reconciliation tables further below).

Third Quarter 2019 Highlights (all percentage changes compare Q3 2019 to Q3 2018 unless noted):

Joseph (Joe) Carlucci, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our third quarter 2019 results were consistent with our internal expectations. We remain pleased with our treatment growth performance this year, which demonstrates that more patients continue to choose ARA to receive high quality care. During the third quarter of 2019, we also continued to make progress with our operating expense initiatives, and we believe our payor contracting efforts during the past year yielded further stability with our commercial payor treatment mix. We are also encouraged by our cash flow performance, which allowed us to reduce our aggregate borrowings by more than $18 million during the third quarter of 2019 and improve our leverage ratio by 0.3x as compared to June 30, 2019.”

Carlucci added, “In light of our third quarter 2019 performance and outlook for the fourth quarter of 2019, we are increasing and tightening our guidance range for 2019 Adjusted EBITDA-NCI. We remain focused on improving our operating efficiency and strengthening the balance sheet, while thoughtfully balancing the growth and development opportunities that remain ahead of us.”

Financial and operating highlights include:

Revenue: Patient service operating revenues for the third quarter of 2019 were $211.4 million, an increase of 2.8% as compared to $205.7 million for the prior-year period, which was primarily due to an increase of 8.1% in the number of dialysis treatments, partially offset by adverse changes in commercial treatment rates.

Treatment Volume: Total dialysis treatments for the third quarter of 2019 were 625,684, representing an increase of 8.1% over the third quarter of 2018. Non-acquired treatment growth was 5.8%, and acquired treatment growth was 2.3% for the third quarter of 2019. Normalized total treatment growth was 7.9%, and non-acquired treatment growth was 5.7% as compared to Q3 2018.

Clinic Activity: As of September 30, 2019, the Company provided services at 244 outpatient dialysis clinics serving 17,159 patients. During the third quarter of 2019, we opened one de novo clinic and divested two clinics.

Adjusted cash provided by operating activities less distributions to noncontrolling interests (see “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures”) for the third quarter of 2019 was $8.7 million as compared to $4.5 million in the prior-year period. Total capital expenditures for the third quarter of 2019 were $3.7 million, compared to $10.7 million in the prior-year period. Capital expenditures for the three months ended September 30, 2019 included $2.9 million for expansions and new clinic development and $0.8 million for other capital expenditures.

Cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $35.1 million as compared to $83.9 million in the prior-year period. Adjusted cash provided by operating activities less distributions to noncontrolling interests (see “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures”) for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was $(5.1) million as compared to $29.6 million in the prior-year period. Total capital expenditures for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 were $17.9 million as compared to $29.1 million in the prior-year period. Capital expenditures for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 included $14.0 million for expansions and new clinic development and $3.9 million for other capital expenditures.

Balance Sheet: At September 30, 2019, the Company’s balance sheet included consolidated cash of $60.2 million and consolidated debt of $593.4 million, including the current portion of long-term debt. Excluding clinic-level debt not guaranteed by the Company and clinic-level cash not owned by the Company, Adjusted owned net debt (see “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures”) was $497.4 million at September 30, 2019, as compared to $470.9 million at December 31, 2018. Adjusted owned net debt to last twelve months Adjusted EBITDA-NCI leverage ratio was 5.6x at September 30, 2019, an improvement of 0.3x from June 30, 2019. As of September 30, 2019, net patient accounts receivable was $103.4 million, and days sales outstanding (“DSO”) for the period was 45 days as compared to 46 days as of June 30, 2019.

Outlook for Adjusted EBITDA-NCI:

The Company now expects 2019 Adjusted EBITDA-NCI to be in a range of $87 million and $89 million as compared to the previous range of $85 million and $88 million.

The Company is reaffirming its preliminary outlook for 2020 Adjusted EBITDA-NCI to be in a range of $90 million and $95 million. The Company expects its leverage ratio (defined below) to improve by between 0.3x and 0.6x by year-end 2020 as compared to 5.6x at September 30, 2019.

The Company is not providing a quantitative reconciliation of our Non-GAAP outlook to the corresponding GAAP information because the GAAP measures that we exclude from our Non-GAAP outlook are not available without unreasonable effort on a forward-looking basis due to their unpredictability, high variability, complexity and low visibility. These excluded GAAP measures include noncontrolling interests, interest expense, income taxes, certain legal and other matters, and other charges. We expect the variability of these charges to have a potentially unpredictable, and potentially significant, impact on our future GAAP financial results.

Please see the “Forward-Looking Statements” section of this release for a discussion of certain risks to our outlook.

(1) Adjusted general and administrative expenses per treatment during the three months ended September 30, 2019 is adjusted for a $0.8 million reduction of bonus compensation for certain executives repaid in respect of prior years in light of the restatement (the “Restatement”) of certain of our prior financial statements and other financial information in our Annual Report on Form 10-K, a $0.3 million gain on sale of clinics and approximately $0.1 million of severance expense adjustments. Adjusted general and administrative expenses per treatment during the three months ended June 30, 2019 is adjusted for $0.2 million of severance expense.

American Renal Associates Holdings, Inc. and Subsidiaries
Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
(Unaudited)
(dollars in thousands)

We use Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA-NCI to track our performance. “Adjusted EBITDA” is defined as net income before stock-based compensation and associated payroll taxes, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, net, income taxes and other non-income-based tax, transaction-related costs, change in fair value of income tax receivable agreement, certain legal and other matters, executive and management severance costs and gain or loss on sale or closure of clinics. “Adjusted EBITDA-NCI” is defined as Adjusted EBITDA less net income attributable to noncontrolling interests. We believe Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA-NCI provide information useful for evaluating our business and a further understanding of our results of operations from management’s perspective. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is helpful in highlighting trends because Adjusted EBITDA excludes certain expenses that can differ significantly from company to company depending on, among other things, long-term strategic decisions regarding capital structure and investments, and the tax jurisdictions in which companies operate, or that we believe do not reflect our core business operations. We believe Adjusted EBITDA-NCI is helpful in highlighting the amount of Adjusted EBITDA that is available to us after reflecting the interests of our joint venture partners. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA-NCI are not measures of operating performance computed in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered 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 measures of profitability or liquidity. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA-NCI may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies and differ from the calculation of “Consolidated EBITDA” under our credit agreement. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA-NCI may not be indicative of historical operating results, and we do not mean for these items to be predictive of future results of operations or cash flows. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA-NCI have limitations as analytical tools, and they should not be considered in isolation, or as substitutes for an analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA-NCI:

In addition, Adjusted EBITDA is not adjusted for the portion of earnings that we distribute to our joint venture partners.

We use Adjusted net income attributable to American Renal Associates Holdings, Inc. because it is a useful measure to evaluate our performance by excluding the impact of certain items that we believe are not related to our normal business operations and/or are a result of changes in our liabilities from period to period. See the notes to the tables below for further explanation of the exclusion of certain items. By excluding these items, we believe Adjusted net income allows us and investors to evaluate our net income on a more consistent basis. “Adjusted net income attributable to American Renal Associates Holdings, Inc.” is defined as Net income (loss) attributable to American Renal Associates Holdings, Inc. plus or minus, as applicable, certain legal and other matters costs, transaction-related costs, executive and management severance costs, gain on sale or closure of assets, bonus compensation reduction, change in fair value of income tax receivable agreement, tax valuation allowance and other tax adjustments, and accounting changes in fair value of non-controlling interest puts, net of taxes. We use the Adjusted weighted average number of diluted shares to calculate Adjusted net income attributable to American Renal Associates Holdings, Inc. per share.

We use Adjusted cash provided (used) by operating activities less distributions to NCI because it is a useful measure to evaluate the cash flow that is available to the Company for investment in property, plant and equipment, debt service, growth and other general corporate purposes. “Adjusted cash provided (used) by operating activities less distributions to NCI” is defined as cash provided by operating activities plus transaction-related costs less distributions to noncontrolling interests.

We use Adjusted owned net debt because we believe it is a useful metric to evaluate the Company’s share of interests in the cash on our consolidated balance sheet and the debt of the Company. “Adjusted owned net debt” is defined as debt (other than clinic-level debt) plus clinic-level debt guaranteed by our wholly owned subsidiaries less unamortized debt discounts and fees less cash (other than clinic-level cash) less the Company’s pro rata interest in clinic-level cash.
