AdCare Health Systems (ADK) Reports Second Quarter 2011 Results

AdCare Health Systems, Inc., a leading skilled nursing and assisted living provider, reported unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Q2 2011 Financial Highlights

  • Record revenues of $34.8 million, up 10% sequentially and up 459% from Q2 2010
  • Income from operations of $736,000, up 106% or $379,000 sequentially and vs. a year-ago loss
  • Adjusted EBITDAR of $4.4 million, up 33% or $1.1 million sequentially and up 1,441% or $4.1 million from Q2 2010

Q2 2011 Summary of Financial Results

Revenue in the second quarter of 2011 increased 459% to a record $34.8 million from $6.2 million in the same quarter a year ago. The increase in revenue was primarily due to acquisitions completed since August 2010 as part of the company’s M&A program. The company’s skilled nursing facilities that existed prior to August 2010 also contributed to the improvement in revenue, driven primarily by an increase in occupancy. A more detailed discussion and analysis of the company’s performance will be available in AdCare’s Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2011, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Income from operations in the second quarter of 2011 was $736,000, which compares to a loss from operations of $270,000 in the same year-ago period. The increase in income from operations was primarily due to revenue improvement in facilities acquired during the last 12 months.

Adjusted EBITDAR in the second quarter of 2011 totaled $4.4 million, up 1,441% from adjusted EBITDAR of $283,000 in the second quarter of 2010 (see the definition and an important discussion about the presentation of adjusted EBITDAR, a non-GAAP term, below).

For earnings attributable to AdCare and its shareholders, the company recorded a net loss in the second quarter of 2011 of $4,397,000 or $(0.52) per share, versus a net loss of $610,000 or $(0.11) per share in the same year-ago period. The second quarter 2011 net loss included acquisition expenses of approximately $622,000, a non-cash derivative loss of $2.6 million, and salary continuation costs of $621,000, with none of these expenses occurring in the same year-ago quarter. Total non-cash stock-based compensation in the second quarter of 2011 was $374,000, compared to $216,000 in the same year-ago quarter.

Combined cash, current restricted cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2011 totaled $8.8 million, compared to $5.0 million at December 31, 2010.

Q2 2011 Operational Highlights

  • Completed the acquisition of three skilled nursing centers in Georgia. The facilities have an aggregate 339 beds that generate an estimated $17.7 million in annualized revenues, and their addition was immediately accretive to the company’s earnings.
  • Signed agreement for 15 skilled nursing centers across South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee, and representing the company’s largest transaction to-date. The facilities have an aggregate of 1,995 beds and generate an estimated $93 million in gross annualized revenues according to their most recent financials. They are expected to be accretive to the company’s earnings after the transaction closes as planned in the fall.
  • At the end of the second quarter, the company operated 31 facilities, comprised of 23 skilled nursing centers, seven assisted living residences and one independent living/senior housing facility, totaling approximately 2,900 units. The company’s communities are located in Ohio, Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina.
  • In June, AdCare appointed Martin D. Brew as CFO. Brew adds more than 29 years of experience to AdCare, as a seasoned finance and healthcare industry executive.
  • Joined Russell Microcap® Index.

Management Commentary

“During the second quarter, the operational optimization of our recently acquired facilities is beginning to be reflected in our core performance,” said Boyd P. Gentry, AdCare’s president and chief executive officer. “Our key operating measures showed strong improvement in the quarter, including revenues, income from operations and adjusted EBITDAR, as well as improvement in occupancy at our legacy facilities.”

“Our strategy of acquiring skilled nursing facilities is proving successful. We target facilities that have not traditionally concentrated on providing post-acute services, and then once acquired, optimize patient care, occupancy and quality mix,” continued Gentry. “Our operating team has also demonstrated they can increase Medicare census and rates. In fact, we have increased Medicare census by 40% at facilities where we have operated for less than a year. This has resulted in an increase in quality mix to approximately 14% for the entire company, as compared to an average of 10% at the time of individual facility acquisition.”

“With a robust pipeline of opportunities ahead of us, both organic and external, we are well positioned to deliver strengthening results even in a more conservative Medicare environment. During the remainder of 2011, we will continue to focus on investing in and improving our back office and operational infrastructure to support our successful M&A program, as led by our chief acquisition officer and vice chairman, Chris Brogdon.”

According to Brogdon: “AdCare has put under contract 42 facilities since we began this M&A campaign in the fall of 2009 and 20 since the beginning of the year. After establishing new operations so far in Alabama, Georgia and North Carolina, during the second quarter we made our first introductions into Missouri, Tennessee, South Carolina and Virginia with 2,500 beds put under contract. We continue to expect our new facilities and these pending acquisitions to improve our overall EBITDAR margin.”

The company plans to continue pursuing an aggressive M&A program. Combining its current annualized run-rate with transactions currently in the process of closing, AdCare’s estimated annualized revenue run-rate is expected to exceed $268 million. This would represent an increase of more than 400% over the company’s revenues in 2010, and an increase of more than 900% over revenues in 2009 when it initiated its M&A campaign.

“We’re evaluating a number of attractive opportunities in both the Midwest and the South,” added Brogdon, “with our M&A program continuing to be a major focus as we complete the second half of 2011.”
