Diversicare Announces 2016 Second Quarter Results

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., Aug. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Diversicare Healthcare Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:DVCR), a premier provider of long-term care services, today announced its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

On August 2, 2016, the Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.055 per common share payable to shareholders of record as of September 30, 2016, to be paid on October 14, 2016.

Second Quarter 2016 Highlights

  • Net revenue decreased 0.5% to $95.8 million in the second quarter of 2016 from $96.3 million in the second quarter of 2015 primarily attributable to the decline in skilled patient mix and occupancy.

  • Net income decreased from $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2015 to a net loss of $2.2 million in the second quarter of 2016.

  • The second quarter results include non-recurring expenses totaling $2.2 million, $2.0 million non-recurring of which result from the termination of our lease agreement and cessation of operations in Avon, Ohio. Adjusting for these items, Adjusted EBITDA of $1.9 million is reported for the quarter.

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, "There is no question this was a challenging quarter due to the headwinds we believe the industry is facing with skilled patient mix and occupancy. We also took a significant one-time charge related to the disposition of a troubled facility, which had a significant impact to the financial results in the quarter. While recognizing this expense is required by the accounting rules for this kind of lease amendment, it does have a positive benefit of getting past the charge as a single event and thereby eliminating the ongoing drag on earnings in future quarters."

Mr. Gill continued, "Despite these challenges, our internal operations and sales teams have remained stable, and despite recent trends, we believe that continuing to focus on improving the care we provide and achieving industry-leading quality metrics is the best possible route to long-term success. We are extremely proud of our industry leading quality measures as measured under the 5 Star Rating System, which continue to improve and are above the national averages f​or all industry providers."

Patient Revenues

Patient revenues were $95.8 million and $96.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively, a decrease of $0.5 million.  The following table summarizes the revenue fluctuations attributable to our portfolio growth (in thousands):

  
 Three Months Ended June 30,
 2016 2015 Change
Same-store revenue$91,873  $93,227  $(1,354)
2015 acquisition revenue3,932  3,061  871 
Total revenue$95,805  $96,288  $(483)
            

The overall decrease in revenue of $0.5 million is primarily driven by a decrease in census related to our same-store Medicare and Private payors of $1.9 million and $0.7 million, respectively. This was partially offset by the Medicaid rate and census increase of $0.8 million and $0.5 million, respectively. Incremental revenue contributions from acquisition activity in 2015 of $0.9 million offset our decrease in same-store revenue for the quarter.

Expenses

Operating expense increased in the second quarter of 2016 to $78.4 million as compared to $76.7 million in the second quarter of 2015.  The following table summarizes the expense increases attributable to our portfolio growth (in thousands):

  
 Three Months Ended June 30,
 2016 2015 Change
Same-store operating expense$75,276  $74,320  $956 
2015 acquisition expense3,109  2,332  777 
Total expense$78,385  $76,652  $1,733 
            

Operating expense increased as a percentage of revenue at 81.8% for the second quarter of 2016 as compared to 79.6% for the second quarter of 2015.  The increase is driven partially by the $0.8 million increase in operating costs attributable to the nursing center operations acquired in 2015. Considering the aforementioned addition of the new centers, we experienced an increase of $0.7 million in health insurance premiums in 2016 compared to the prior year. Additionally, bad debt expense increased by $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015.

Lease expense decreased in the second quarter of 2016 to $6.9 million as compared to $7.2 million in the second quarter of 2015. The decrease in lease expense was primarily attributable to the purchase of Clinton and Hutchinson in February 2016.

Professional liability expense was $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2016 and 2015. Our cash expenditures for professional liability costs of continuing operations were $0.9 million and $0.8 million for the second quarters of 2016 and 2015, 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.

General and administrative expense was $6.9 million in the second quarter of 2016 as compared to $6.3 million in the second quarter of 2015, an increase of $0.6 million, and increased slightly as a percentage of revenue from 6.6% in 2015 to 7.2% in 2016.  The increase in general and administrative expense is primarily attributable to an increase in salaries of $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015. Additionally, legal fees increased by $0.4 million in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015, related to regulatory expenses.

Depreciation and amortization expense was approximately $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2016 as compared to $1.9 million in 2015. The increase in depreciation expense relates to fixed assets at the newly leased and acquired centers.

Lease termination costs were $2.0 million in 2016 due to the termination of the Avon, Ohio operating lease in May 2016.

Interest expense was $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2016 and $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2015, an increase of $0.2 million.   The increase was primarily attributable to higher debt balances in 2016 as a result of higher outstanding borrowings on the revolving credit facility as a result of the purchase of Hutchinson and Clinton in the first quarter of 2016.

Receivables

Our net receivables balance decreased $3.7 million to $40.1 million as of June 30, 2016, from $43.8 million as of December 31, 2015.  The decrease in accounts receivable is due to an increase in Medicaid collections from the centers undergoing the change in ownership process.

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 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.
