Operating Results

“We are pleased to report our second quarter results showing continued operational momentum in each segment,” said Brent Guerisoli, Pennant’s Chief Executive Officer. “We are grateful to each of our local teams and our service center partners for navigating ongoing operational headwinds and a challenging labor environment. As we face further economic and regulatory uncertainty, our unique operating model and leadership depth give us confidence in the abilities of our teams to be successful and create value for our long-term stakeholders.”

Commenting on the Company’s operating results, Mr. Guerisoli said, “Our home health and hospice business posted another solid quarter despite persistent labor and inflationary pressures. Our revenue of $85.3 million in the second quarter was driven largely by strong Medicare home health admissions, which increased 6.3% over the prior year quarter, and total hospice admissions, which increased 3.5% over the prior year quarter. Segment adjusted EBITDA margin expanded 120 basis points over the first quarter of 2022, leading to segment adjusted EBITDA growth of $1.8 million or 14.4% over the same period. Underpinning these strong results is our focus on producing quality clinical outcomes, with over half of our home health agencies have a CMS star rating of 4.5 or 5 stars, and an average rehospitalization rate 340 basis points below the national average according to real-time third party analytics. We continue to see tremendous opportunities in our home health and hospice segment to drive stronger performance across our existing platform and expand our footprint by acquiring high-quality agencies in adjacent markets. ”

“Our senior living segment continues to build momentum even in the face of lingering labor pressures,” said Mr. Guerisoli. “Strong occupancy and RevPOR results highlight the solid demand for quality senior living services that we are poised to address in our markets. Excluding the impact of the six senior living operations exited during 2022, our same store average occupancy for the second quarter was 77.2%, an increase of 180 basis points over the first quarter 2022 and 190 basis points over the prior year quarter, and same store average revenue per occupied room would have increased 0.5% over the first quarter 2022 and 5.8% over the prior year quarter. Across the segment, as we continue developing leadership teams, improving our data and systems, and driving accountability around our core opportunities, we know we can execute with operational excellence and continue to achieve financial, cultural and clinical success.”

During the quarter, the Company completed the transfer of five senior living communities to Ensign affiliates, acquired the real estate underlying the operations of its 82-unit assisted living and memory care community in Twin Falls, Idaho, which will continue to be operated by an affiliate of the Company, and closed on the acquisition of one home health agency in Montana. After quarter-end, the Company acquired the operations of Barber Station Assisted Living and Memory Care, a Class A senior living community with 39 assisted living and 45 memory care units in Boise, Idaho, signing a favorable long-term triple-net lease. “We see increasing opportunity across the home health and hospice landscape to acquire quality agencies at prices consistent with our disciplined investment strategy. Our pipeline of potential acquisitions is healthy, our strong balance sheet and access to capital allow us to invest opportunistically, and the uncertainties facing providers--particularly home health operators--are substantial, creating opportunities for us to work with high-quality business owners looking for a strategic partner to amplify the legacy they’ve built. We are poised to be the buyer-of-choice for these providers, and we’re excited about deploying capital and growing in a significant way over the next several quarters,” said Derek Bunker, Pennant’s Chief Investment Officer.

Jennifer Freeman, Pennant's Chief Financial Officer, reported that the Company ended the second quarter with strong liquidity, with $3.2 million of cash on hand and $90.8 million of availability on its revolving line of credit. Ms. Freeman reported that the Company had a net debt-to-adjusted EBITDA ratio of 1.96x and a lease-adjusted net debt-to-adjusted EBITDAR ratio of 5.67x as of quarter-end. “Our cash position and liquidity in the second quarter improved sequentially over the first quarter. We completed the process of returning $28.0 million in Medicare advance payments received in 2020. Aside from acquisitions which may cause our leverage to temporarily remain elevated, we look forward to our leverage ratio and cash flow improving. We are excited to deploy growing dry powder in what we believe will be a compelling investment environment on the horizon,” said Ms. Freeman.

A discussion of the company's use of non-GAAP financial measures is set forth below. A reconciliation of net income to EBITDA, adjusted EBITDAR and adjusted EBITDA, as well as a reconciliation of GAAP earnings per share, net income to adjusted net earnings per share and adjusted net income, appear in the financial data portion of this release.   More complete information is contained in the company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q,Form 10-Q for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, which has been filed with the SEC today and can be viewed on the company’s website at www.pennantgroup.com.

2022 Guidance

Management reaffirms its 2022 annual guidance of total revenue between $450 million and $460 million. Full year 2022 adjusted earnings per diluted share is anticipated to be between $0.60 and $0.68 and full year 2022 adjusted EBITDA is anticipated to be between $33.2 million and $35.7 million.

The Company’s 2022 annual guidance is based on diluted weighted average shares outstanding of approximately 30.4 million and a 25.8% effective tax rate. The guidance assumes, among other things, anticipated reimbursement rate adjustments, no unannounced acquisitions, and the lingering effects of COVID-19. It excludes the tax-effected costs at start-up operations, share-based compensation, acquisition-related costs, and loss on disposition of assets and impairments.

Ms. Freeman stated, “We believe providing annual adjusted consolidated EBITDA guidance in addition to annual revenue and adjusted earnings per share guidance is helpful in understanding our expectations for our business and operational cash flow. While the first half of 2022 presented unique concerns making guidance more challenging, we are on track with the operational ramp we expected.”

(a)

 

Segment Adjusted EBITDAR from Operations is net income (loss) attributable to the Company's reportable segments excluding interest expense, provision for income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, rent, and, in order to view the operations performance on a comparable basis from period to period, certain adjustments including: (1) costs at start-up operations, (2) share-based compensation, (3) acquisition related costs, (4) redundant and nonrecurring costs associated with the Transition Services Agreement, (5) the loss related to senior living operations transferred to Ensign, and (6) net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interest. General and administrative expenses are not allocated to the reportable segments, and are included as “All Other”, accordingly the segment earnings measure reported is before allocation of corporate general and administrative expenses. The Company's segment measures may be different from the calculation methods used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.

(b)

 

Represents results related to start-up operations. This amount excludes rent and depreciation and amortization expense related to such operations.

(c)

 

Share-based compensation expense incurred which is included in cost of services and general and administrative expense.

(d)

 

Acquisition related costs related to business combinations during the periods.

(e)

 

Costs identified as redundant or nonrecurring incurred by the Company as a result of the Spin-off. The 2021 amounts represents part of the costs incurred under the Transition Services Agreement. All amounts are included in general and administrative expense. Fees incurred under the Transition Services Agreement were $458 and $1,101 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, and $747 and $1,735 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.

(f)

 

On January 27, 2022, affiliates of the Company, entered into certain operations transfer agreements (collectively, the “Transfer Agreements”) with affiliates of Ensign, providing for the transfer of the operations of certain senior living communities (the “Transaction”) from affiliates of the Company to affiliates of Ensign. The closing of the Transaction was completed in two phases with the transfer of two operations on March 1, 2022 and the remainder transferred on April 1, 2022. The amount includes $6,500 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 to cover post-closing capital expenditures and operating losses related to one of the communities transferred on April 1, 2022. The amount above also includes $191 and $(566) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively, for the related net impact on revenue and cost of service attributable to the transferred entities. This amount excludes rent and depreciation and amortization expense related to such operations.

Discussion of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA consists of net (loss) income before (a) interest expense, net, (b) (benefits) provisions for income taxes, and (c) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA consists of net (loss) income attributable to the Company before (a) (benefits) provisions for income taxes, (b) depreciation and amortization, (c) costs incurred for start-up operations, including rent and excluding depreciation, interest and income taxes, (d) share-based compensation expense, (e) non-capitalizable acquisition related costs, (f) redundant or non-recurring transition services costs, (g) loss related to senior living operations transferred to Ensign, and (h) net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interest. Consolidated Adjusted EBITDAR is a valuation measure applicable to current periods only and consists of net (loss) income attributable to the Company before (a) interest expense, net, (b) (benefits) provisions for income taxes, (c) depreciation and amortization, (d) rent-cost of services, (e) costs incurred for start-up operations, excluding rent, depreciation, interest and income taxes, (f) share-based compensation expense, (g) acquisition related costs, (h) redundant or non-recurring transition services costs, (i) loss related to senior living operations transferred to Ensign, and (j) net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interest. The company believes that the presentation of EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, consolidated adjusted EBITDAR, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share provides important supplemental information to management and investors to evaluate the company’s operating performance. The company believes disclosure of adjusted net income, adjusted net income per share, EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA and consolidated adjusted EBITDAR has economic substance because the excluded revenues and expenses are infrequent in nature and are variable in nature, or do not represent current revenues or cash expenditures. A material limitation associated with the use of these measures as compared to the GAAP measures of net income and diluted earnings per share is that they may not be comparable with the calculation of net income and diluted earnings per share for other companies in the company's industry. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be relied upon to the exclusion of GAAP financial measures. For further information regarding why the company believes that this non-GAAP measure provides useful information to investors, the specific manner in which management uses this measure, and some of the limitations associated with the use of this measure, please refer to the company's periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including its Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The company’s periodic filings are available on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov or under the "Financial Information" link of the Investor Relations section on Pennant’s website at http://www.pennantgroup.com.
