"In the first quarter, we achieved strong financial results, delivering Adjusted EBITDA that was at the high end of our Outlook range"

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE:THC) reported a net loss from continuing operations of $52 million in the first quarter of 2017, a $3 million improvement when compared to a $55 million net loss from continuing operations in the first quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA was $527 million in the first quarter of 2017, down from $617 million in the first quarter of 2016.

“In the first quarter, we achieved strong financial results, delivering Adjusted EBITDA that was at the high end of our Outlook range,” said Trevor Fetter, chairman and chief executive officer. “Today, we announced that we have reached a new agreement with Humana that we believe is in the best interests of both companies and our shared customers. We also completed the sale of the majority of our home health and hospice businesses, sold our Managed Medicaid plan in Arizona, and entered into a definitive agreement to sell three acute care hospitals and related operations in Houston. In addition, we announced that we are increasing our ownership of USPI to 80% this year. These actions are part of a strategic effort to reduce complexity across the enterprise and enhance returns for our shareholders.”

Adjusted EBITDA of $527 million in the first quarter of 2017 represents a $90 million decline from $617 million of Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter of 2017. The decline was primarily attributable to three factors:

(i) no revenue being recorded under the California Provider Fee program in the first quarter of 2017 versus $57 million in the first quarter of 2016 since the 2017 program has not yet been approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS);

(ii) the sale of Tenet’s hospitals in Atlanta, Georgia, which generated approximately $25 million of EBITDA in the first quarter of 2016 and which were divested on April 1, 2016; and,

(iii) approximately $7 million in start-up losses in the first quarter of 2017 at the Company’s new hospital in El Paso, Texas, which opened in January 2017.

Note that the $617 million of Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter of 2016 was restated and equals: (i) $613 million of Adjusted EBITDA that was originally reported for the first quarter of 2016, plus (ii) $7 million due to a change in pension accounting which lowered Salaries, Wages and Benefits by this amount, less (iii) $3 million of positive EBITDA generated by the Company’s health plan business in the first quarter of 2016.

Hospital Operations and Other Segment

Net operating revenue in the Hospital Operations and other segment was $4.115 billion, down 6.4 percent from $4.397 billion in the first quarter of 2016. The decline was primarily due to the divestiture of Tenet’s hospitals and related operations in Atlanta effective April 1, 2016 and not being able to record revenue under the California Provider Fee Program in the first quarter of 2017 since the extension of this program has not yet been approved by CMS.

On a same-hospital basis, patient revenue decreased to $4.068 billion, down 1.0 percent from $4.108 billion in the first quarter of 2016. The decline was primarily due to a 2.5 percent decrease in adjusted admissions, partially offset by a 1.6 percent increase in net patient revenue per adjusted admission. The Company’s same-hospital revenue per adjusted admission was lowered by approximately 140 basis points due to the lack of CMS approval of the California Provider Fee Program. In addition, if we exclude patients that were insured by Humana in both periods, same-hospital adjusted admissions declined 0.8 percent.

Adjusted EBITDA in Tenet’s hospital segment was $309 million, representing a decline of $109 million or 26.1 percent as compared to $418 million in the first quarter of 2016. The $109 million decline in EBITDA in the hospital segment was primarily driven by the California Provider Fee program, the divestiture of Tenet’s hospitals and related operations in Atlanta effective April 1, 2016, and start-up losses at our new hospital in El Paso, which collectively resulted in an $89 million year-over-year decline in EBITDA in the hospital segment. In addition, a 5.4% increase in same-hospital charity and uninsured admissions contributed to a $34 million increase in the provision for doubtful accounts on a same hospital basis, from $338 million in the first quarter of 2016 to $372 million in the first quarter of 2017, which placed pressure on the year-over-year EBITDA comparison.

Tenet’s health plan business generated losses of $16 million in the first quarter of 2017 versus positive EBITDA of $3 million in the first quarter of 2016. The revenue and expenses associated with the Company’s health plan operations are included in Tenet’s consolidated statements of operations, however, the results are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA in both periods.

Selected operating expenses in the segment, defined as the sum of salaries, wages and benefits, supplies and other operating expenses, increased 1.9 percent on a per adjusted admission basis.

Exchanges

Tenet’s same-hospital exchange admissions were 5,168 in the first quarter of 2017, down 1.8 percent from the first quarter of 2016. Same-hospital exchange outpatient visits were 51,008 in the first quarter of 2017, up 13.9 percent from the first quarter of 2016.

Uncompensated Care

Tenet’s provision for doubtful accounts was $383 million in the first quarter of 2017, representing a ratio of 7.4 percent of revenues before bad debt, as compared to $376 million in the first quarter of 2016, or 6.9 percent of revenues before bad debt. The increase in the bad debt ratio was primarily attributable to a $34 million increase in uninsured revenues.

Tenet’s uncompensated care costs, defined as the sum of the provision for doubtful accounts, charity care write-offs and uninsured discounts, was $1.342 billion and $1.309 billion in the first quarters of 2017 and 2016, respectively, including $959 million and $933 million, respectively, of charity care write-offs and uninsured discounts that were offered through Tenet’s Compact with Uninsured Patients. Uncompensated care in the first quarter of 2017 represented 21.8 percent of revenue before bad debts, uninsured discounts and charity care write-offs, up from 20.6 percent in the first quarter of 2016. Nearly all of Tenet’s uncompensated care is associated with the Hospital Operations and other segment.

Uninsured plus charity admissions increased by 516 admissions, or 5.4 percent on a same-hospital basis in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the first quarter of 2016. Uninsured plus charity outpatient visits decreased by 17,998 visits, or 12.5 percent, on a same-hospital basis.

Ambulatory Care Segment

During the first quarter of 2017, the Ambulatory segment produced net operating revenues of $455 million, representing an increase of 6.1 percent as compared to $429 million in the first quarter of 2016. In addition, the Ambulatory segment generated Adjusted EBITDA of $153 million, up 12.5 percent from $136 million in the first quarter of 2016 and Adjusted EBITDA less facility-level NCI was $100 million, up 11.1% from $90 million in the first quarter of 2016.

The results of many of the facilities in which the Ambulatory segment has an investment are not consolidated by Tenet. To help analyze the segment’s results of operations, management uses system-wide measures which include revenues and cases of both consolidated and unconsolidated facilities. On a same-facility system-wide basis, revenue in the Ambulatory segment increased 6.1 percent, with cases increasing 0.5 percent and revenue per case increasing 5.6 percent. Excluding patients insured by Humana in both periods, same-facility system-wide cases increased 2.4 percent in the first quarter of 2017.

Conifer Segment

During the first quarter of 2017, Conifer’s revenue increased 4.4 percent to $402 million, up from $385 million in the first quarter of 2016. Revenue from third party customers increased 11.5 percent to $243 million. Conifer generated $65 million of Adjusted EBITDA in the first quarter of 2017, up 3.2 percent from $63 million in the first quarter of 2016.

Net Income and Earnings Per Share

Tenet reported a net loss from continuing operations of $52 million, or $0.52 per share, in the first quarter of 2017 compared to a net loss of $55 million, or $0.56 per share, in the first quarter of 2016.

After adjusting for certain items which are listed on Table #2, Tenet recorded an Adjusted net loss from continuing operations of $27 million, or $0.27 per share, during the first quarter of 2017, as compared to Adjusted net income from continuing operations of $45 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2016.

A reconciliation of GAAP net income available (loss attributable) to Tenet Healthcare Corporation common shareholders to Adjusted net income from continuing operations and Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations is contained in Table #2 at the end of this release.

Cash Flow and Liquidity

Cash and cash equivalents were $572 million at March 31, 2017 compared to $716 million at December 31, 2016. The Company had no outstanding borrowings on its $1 billion credit line as of March 31, 2017. Accounts receivable days outstanding were 55.4 at March 31, 2017 compared to 54.8 at December 31, 2016. Excluding the revenues from the Company’s health plans in both periods and revenues from the California Provider Fee program in the 2016 period (as previously mentioned no amounts were recognized in the 2017 period), accounts receivable days outstanding were 56.1 days and 56.7 days at March 31, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $186 million, representing a $39 million increase compared to $147 million in the first quarter of 2016. After subtracting $198 million and $208 million of capital expenditures in the three months ended March 31, 2017 and March 31, 2016, respectively, Free Cash Flow was an outflow of $12 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017, representing a $49 million improvement compared to an outflow of $61 million in the comparable period in 2016. Adjusted Free Cash Flow was $9 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017, representing a $2 million decline from $11 million in the comparable period in 2016.

Net cash used in investing activities was $189 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $320 million of net cash provided by investing activities in the comparable period in 2016. The 2016 period included $573 million of proceeds from the sale of the Company’s hospitals and related outpatient facilities in Georgia.

Net cash used by financing activities was $141 million in the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to $95 million of net cash used in financing activities in the comparable period in 2016. The 2017 period included the Company’s purchase of the land and improvements associated with Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, which was previously leased under a capital lease, for $44 million.

Reconciliations of net cash provided by operating activities to both Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow are contained in Table #3 at the end of this release.

Humana Agreement

Tenet and Humana Inc. have reached a new, multi-year agreement in which all of Tenet’s hospitals and hospital-affiliated outpatient centers and employed physicians will be phased back into Humana’s network between June 1, 2017 and October 1, 2017. All of USPI’s facilities will be added to Humana’s network on June 1, 2017.

The Company’s hospitals that are being added to Humana’s network on October 1, 2017 are in markets where Humana has a larger presence. These hospitals represent the majority of the revenue that Tenet previously generated from Humana under its prior contractual relationship.

Definitive Agreement to Sell Acute Care Hospitals and Related Operations in Houston

Tenet and HCA Holdings, Inc. have entered into a definitive agreement for the sale of Tenet’s acute care hospitals and related operations in Houston, Texas. The transaction is expected to result in net proceeds of approximately $725 million and to be completed in the third quarter of 2017, subject to customary regulatory approvals and closing conditions.

The facilities included in the sale are three acute care hospitals (Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center, Houston Northwest Medical Center and Park Plaza Hospital) and one long-term acute care hospital (Plaza Specialty Hospital), as well as other hospital-affiliated entities, including physician practices.

During 2016, these facilities generated net revenue after the provision for doubtful accounts of approximately $575 million and Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $80 million.

Accelerating the Purchase of USPI

The Company has amended its put/call agreement with Welsh Carson Anderson & Stowe, which will result in Tenet owning 80 percent of the United Surgical Partners International (USPI) joint venture on or before July 3, 2017. Currently, Tenet owns 56.3 percent of USPI. In 2017, Tenet will pay Welsh Carson $711 million to buy 23.7 percent of USPI at a multiple of approximately 10x projected 2017 EBITDA less facility level NCI.

Tenet expects to buy from Welsh Carson another 7.5 percent of USPI in 2018 and 7.5 percent in 2019. As a result, Tenet expects to own 95 percent of USPI in 2019 with the remaining 5 percent owned by a subsidiary of Baylor Scott & White Health, which is USPI’s largest not-for-profit health system partner. The projected payments in 2018 and 2019 will be approximately $275 million to $325 million in each of the two years. The actual payments in 2018 and 2019 will be determined based on USPI’s financial performance, with Tenet paying a multiple of 10x EBITDA less facility level NCI.

The Company expects to fund these payments from general sources of corporate liquidity, including cash on hand, proceeds of asset divestitures and borrowings under the Company’s credit agreement.

Health Plan, Home Health and Hospice Divestitures

The Company anticipates receiving net proceeds of approximately $65 million from the sale of its health plans, home health and hospice businesses. Approximately $6 million was received in the fourth quarter of 2016, $14 million was received in the first quarter of 2017 and the remainder is anticipated in the second quarter of 2017.

Outlook

The Company is raising its 2017 Adjusted EBITDA Outlook range by $25 million due to a change in accounting for pension expense. The Outlook has not been updated for: (i) the announced sale in Houston; (ii) the anticipated reduction of noncontrolling interests expense associated with the accelerated purchase of USPI; or, (iii) other potential divestitures. The Company intends to update its Outlook for these items as part of its second quarter earnings release which is currently expected to be issued after the market close on August 7, 2017.

The Company’s Outlook for 2017 includes:

  • Revenue of $19.7 billion to $20.1 billion,
  • Net income from continuing operations attributable to Tenet common shareholders of $71 million to $95 million,
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $2.525 billion to $2.625 billion,
  • Net cash provided by operating activities of $1.3 billion to $1.5 billion,
  • Adjusted Free Cash Flow of $600 million to $800 million,
  • Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $0.70 to $0.93, and
  • Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations of $1.05 to $1.30.

The $25 million increase in the Company’s Adjusted EBITDA Outlook was due to a change in accounting for pension expense which will lower the Company’s Salaries, Wages and Benefits expense by approximately $25 million in 2017, with an offsetting increase in other non-operating expenses. As a result, this change has no effect on the Company’s Outlook for Adjusted diluted earnings per share.

The Outlook for 2017 assumes equity in earnings of unconsolidated affiliates of $145 million to $155 million, electronic health record incentives of $8 million to $10 million, net income attributable to noncontrolling interests of $390 million to $410 million and an average diluted share count of 102 million. In addition, the Outlook assumes that CMS will approve the proposed California Provider Fee for the 30-month period from January 2017 through June 2019 during the fourth quarter of 2017 and further assumes that the Company will record approximately $220 million to $230 million of revenue and Adjusted EBITDA during 2017 as a result of this program. In 2016, the Company recorded $232 million of revenue under the California Provider Fee program. The Company will not be able to recognize any revenue under the 2017 program until CMS approves the program.

The Outlook includes a full year of financial results from the Company’s hospitals in Houston and other hospitals which may be divested in 2017. In addition, the Adjusted EBITDA Outlook excludes approximately $40 million of losses in 2017 that the Company expects to incur in its health plan business. Finally, the Outlook does not reflect the reduction in noncontrolling interest expense which will occur when the Company increases its ownership interest in USPI to 80%; assuming this change occurs on July 1, 2017, the Company’s noncontrolling interest expense will be approximately $5 million lower than the range of $390 million to $410 million shown above.

The Company’s Outlook for the second quarter of 2017 includes:

  • Revenue of $4.85 billion to $5.05 billion,
  • Net loss from continuing operations attributable to Tenet common shareholders ranging from a loss of $30 million to a loss of $25 million,
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $550 million to $600 million,
  • A loss per share from continuing operations ranging from a loss of $0.30 to a loss of $0.25, and
  • An Adjusted loss per share from continuing operations ranging from a loss of $0.20 to a loss of $0.10.

The Outlook for the second quarter assumes equity in earnings of unconsolidated affiliates of approximately $35 million, electronic health record incentives of approximately $5 million, net income attributable to noncontrolling interests of $90 million to $100 million and an average share count of 100 million. The Outlook for the second quarter of 2017 does not include any revenue or Adjusted EBITDA associated with the California Provider Fee program, whereas the Company’s results in the second quarter of 2016 included $55 million of revenue and Adjusted EBITDA associated with the program.

Additional details on Tenet’s Outlook for both the second quarter and calendar year 2017 are available in Tables 4 and 5 at the end of this press release and in an accompanying slide presentation that is accessible through the Company’s website at www.tenethealth.com/investors.

(1)   On a same-facility system-wide basis, net revenue in Tenet’s Ambulatory Care segment increased 6.1% during the three months ended March 31, 2017, with cases increasing 0.5% and revenue per case increasing 5.6%.
(2) At March 31, 2017, 107 of the 324 facilities in the Company’s Ambulatory segment were not consolidated based on the nature of the segment’s joint venture relationships with physicians and prominent healthcare systems. Although revenues of the segment’s unconsolidated facilities are not recorded as revenues by the Company, equity in earnings of unconsolidated affiliates is nonetheless a significant portion of the Company’s overall earnings. To help analyze results of operations, management also uses system-wide operating measures such as system-wide revenue growth, which includes revenues of both consolidated and unconsolidated facilities. The Company controls its remaining 217 facilities and accounts for these investments as consolidated subsidiaries.
(3) During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company recorded $18 million of noncontrolling interests expense related to a $29 million gain on the consolidation of facilities (the gain is not included in Adjusted EBITDA) and an associated $7 million income tax benefit.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is defined by the Company as net income (loss) attributable to Tenet Healthcare Corporation common shareholders before (1) the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principle, (2) net loss (income) attributable to noncontrolling interests, (3) income (loss) from discontinued operations, (4) income tax benefit (expense), (5) other non-operating income (expense), net, (6) gain (loss) from early extinguishment of debt, (7) interest expense, (8) litigation and investigation (costs) benefit, net of insurance recoveries, (9) net gains (losses) on sales, consolidation and deconsolidation of facilities, (10) impairment and restructuring charges and acquisition-related costs, (11) depreciation and amortization and (12) income (loss) from divested operations and closed businesses (i.e., the Company’s health plan businesses). Litigation and investigation costs do not include ordinary course of business malpractice and other litigation and related expense.

Adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Tenet Healthcare Corporation common shareholders, a non-GAAP measure, is defined by the Company as net income (loss) attributable to Tenet Healthcare Corporation common shareholders before (1) impairment and restructuring charges, and acquisition-related costs, (2) litigation and investigation costs, (3) gains on sales, consolidation and deconsolidation of facilities, (4) income (loss) from divested operations and closed businesses (5) the associated impact of these four items on taxes and noncontrolling interests, and (6) net income (loss) from discontinued operations. Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations, a non-GAAP term, is defined by the Company as Adjusted net income (loss) from continuing operations attributable to Tenet Healthcare Corporation common shareholders divided by the weighted average primary or diluted shares outstanding in the reporting period.

Free Cash Flow, a non-GAAP measure, is defined by the Company as (1) net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, less (2) purchases of property and equipment from continuing operations.

Adjusted Free Cash Flow, a non-GAAP measure, is defined by the Company as (1) Adjusted net cash provided by (used in) operating activities from continuing operations, less (2) purchases of property and equipment from continuing operations. Adjusted net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, a non-GAAP measure, is defined by the Company as cash provided by (used in) operating activities prior to (1) payments for restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs and litigation costs and settlements, and, (2) net cash provided by (used in) operating activities from discontinued operations.

The Company believes the foregoing non-GAAP measures are useful to investors and analysts because they present additional information on the Company’s financial performance. Investors, analysts, Company management and the Company’s Board of Directors utilize these non-GAAP measures, in addition to GAAP measures, to track the company’s financial and operating performance and compare the Company’s performance to its peer companies, which utilize similar non-GAAP measures in their presentations. The Human Resources Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors also uses certain of these measures to evaluate management’s performance for the purpose of determining incentive compensation. Additional information regarding the purpose and utility of specific non-GAAP measures used in this release is set forth below.

The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure, in part, because certain investors and analysts use both historical and projected Adjusted EBITDA, in addition to other GAAP and non-GAAP measures, as factors in determining the estimated fair value of shares of the Company’s common stock. Company management also regularly reviews the Adjusted EBITDA performance for each operating segment. The Company does not use Adjusted EBITDA to measure liquidity, but instead to measure operating performance.

We use, and we believe investors and analysts use, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow as supplemental measures to analyze cash flows generated from our operations because we believe it is useful to investors in evaluating our ability to fund distributions paid to noncontrolling interests, acquisitions, purchasing equity interests in joint ventures or repaying debt.

These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Because these measures exclude many items that are included in our financial statements, they do not provide a complete measure of our operating performance. For example, the Company’s definitions of Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow do not include other important uses of cash including (1) cash used to purchase businesses or joint venture interests, or (2) any items that are classified as Cash Flows From Financing Activities on the Company’s Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows, including items such as (i) cash used to repay borrowings, (ii) distributions paid to noncontrolling interests, or (iii) payments under the Put/Call Agreement for USPI redeemable noncontrolling interest, which are recorded on the Statement of Cash Flows as the purchase of noncontrolling interest. Accordingly, investors are encouraged to use GAAP measures when evaluating the Company’s financial performance.

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss) attributable to Tenet Healthcare Corporation common shareholders, the most comparable GAAP measure, is set forth in Table #1 below for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016. A reconciliation of Adjusted net income from continuing operations attributable to Tenet Healthcare Corporation common shareholders to net income (loss) attributable to Tenet Healthcare Corporation common shareholders, the most comparable GAAP measure, is set forth in Table #2 below for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016. A reconciliation of Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow to net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, the most comparable GAAP measure, is set forth in Table #3 below for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016.
