  • LogistiCare revenues increased by 5.8%
  • Income from continuing operations, net of tax, of $6.8 million, or $0.37 per diluted common share,

STAMFORD, Conn., Nov. 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Providence Service Corporation (the “Company” or “Providence”) (Nasdaq: PRSC), today reported financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018.

“This was an extremely positive quarter, both from the perspective of significantly improved earnings and on the strategy front.  First on earnings, we delivered an Adjusted EPS growth of 91% compared to the same quarter of last year and year to date we are 41% ahead. On the strategic side, we have accomplished a significant amount, having very recently signed an agreement to sell our WD Services segment with the exception of our operations in Saudi Arabia as well as completing the acquisition of Circulation, which presents us with a unique opportunity to accelerate the deployment of industry leading technology across our business, driving margin improvement." stated Carter Pate, Interim Chief Executive Officer. He continued, "Our NET Services segment delivered headline revenue growth of almost 6%, including the new West Virginia contract where we got off to a great start, and margins that were much more in line with our normal expectations. During the quarter we focused on identifying the root causes of the increased transportation costs we saw last quarter and the next step will be to seek to realign rates with those costs which may take a number of quarters to fully recoup, while continuing our ongoing efforts to drive down overall transportation cost."

Third Quarter 2018 Results

For the third quarter of 2018, the Company reported revenue of $421.3 million, an increase of 2.9% from $409.5 million in the third quarter of 2017.  The new revenue standard that the company adopted in the first quarter of 2018 resulted in a negative impact to revenue of $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2018 versus the prior standard.

Income from continuing operations, net of tax, in the third quarter of 2018 was $6.8 million, or $0.37 per diluted common share, compared to income from continuing operations net of tax of $15.0 million, or $0.88 per diluted common share, in the third quarter of 2017. Income from continuing operations, net of tax, in the third quarter of 2018 includes a gain related to the step acquisition of Circulation, Inc. ("Circulation') of $6.6 million and the third quarter of 2017 included a gain on the sale of Mission Providence of $12.6 million. Income from continuing operations, net of tax, in the third quarters of 2018 and 2017 include restructuring and related charges of $3.0 million and $2.7 million, respectively. Income from continuing operations, net of tax, in the third quarter of 2018 also includes $1.7 million of transaction costs primarily related to the acquisition of Circulation. Adjusted Net Income in the third quarter of 2018 was $10.5 million, or $0.63 per diluted common share, compared to $6.2 million, or $0.33 per diluted common share, in the third quarter of 2017.

Segment-level Adjusted EBITDA was $24.6 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $24.3 million in the third quarter of 2017.  Adjusted EBITDA was $20.6 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $15.7 million in the third quarter of 2017.

In the three months ended September 30, 2018 the new revenue recognition standard resulted in a positive impact to operating income and Adjusted EBITDA of $0.4 million versus the prior standard.

Acquisition of Circulation, Inc.

On September 21, LogistiCare Solutions, LLC ("LogistiCare") completed the acquisition of Circulation. Circulation offers a full suite of logistics solutions to manage non-emergency transportation across all areas of healthcare, powered by its HIPAA-compliant digital platform. Circulation enables administration of transportation benefits, proactively monitors for fraud waste and abuse, and integrates all transportation capabilities (e.g. outsourced transportation, owned fleets, and other medical logistics services), while placing a new focus on patient convenience and satisfaction. By applying Circulation's technology to LogistiCare's existing operations, the transaction is targeting run-rate synergies of over $25 million within the first 24 months. Providence had previously invested $3.0 million, which was accounted for as a cost method investment. Upon acquisition of the remainder of the shares in Circulation, the initial investment was revalued, resulting in a non-cash gain to Providence of $6.6 million.

Organizational Consolidation

On August 24, Kevin Dotts was hired to serve as CFO of Providence and LogistiCare. This was an important step in our transition plans which continued to be executed in line with our expectations during the third quarter. We continue to anticipate achieving $10 million of annualized cost reduction, upon completion of the consolidation in the second quarter of 2019.

Agreement to sell WD Services

On November 7, Providence entered into a share purchase agreement to sell substantially all of our WD Services segment to Advanced Personnel Management Global Pty Ltd with the exception of our operations in Saudi Arabia, for which it is pursuing alternative strategies which are expected to result in no longer providing services in the country beyond the end of the year. The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2018.

Segment Results

For analysis purposes, the Company provides revenue, expenses, operating income (loss), income (loss) from continuing operations, net of taxes, and Adjusted EBITDA on a segment basis.  Segment results include revenue and expenses incurred by each segment, as well as an allocation of certain direct expenses incurred by Corporate and Other on behalf of the segment.  No direct cash expenses were incurred by Corporate on behalf of the Matrix Investment segment.  The activities reflected in Corporate and Other include executive, accounting, finance, internal audit, tax, legal, public reporting, certain strategic and corporate development functions and the results of the Company’s captive insurance company.

NET Services

NET Services revenue was $343.8 million for the third quarter of 2018, an increase of 5.8% from $324.8 million in the third quarter of 2017.  Operating income was $14.6 million, or 4.3% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $14.2 million, or 4.4% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2017.  Included in NET Services operating income in the third quarters of 2018 and 2017 were $1.1 million and $2.2 million, respectively, of restructuring and related charges and in the third quarter of 2018, transaction charges related to the Circulation acquisition of $1.6 million.  NET Services Adjusted EBITDA was $20.9 million, or 6.1% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2018, compared to $19.7 million, or 6.1% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2017.  Third quarter 2018 revenue includes a negative impact of $3.8 million from the adoption of the new revenue recognition standard, as the accounting for one contract changed from a gross basis to net basis.  This change had no impact on operating income or Adjusted EBITDA.

The quarter-over-quarter increase in NET Services revenue was primarily due to the impact of new contracts, including managed care organization (“MCO”) contracts in Indiana and Illinois and new state contracts in West Virginia and for additional regions in Texas, together with net increased revenue from existing contracts due to the net impact of membership and rate changes. These increases were partially offset by the impact of contracts we no longer serve, including a state contract in Connecticut and certain MCO contracts in Florida and Louisiana. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the third quarter of 2018 was in line with the prior year despite the comparative quarter benefiting from rate adjustments and the release of a hold back upon the renewal of one of our major contracts. We did benefit from year over year rate increases that were secured at the end of 2017 in several markets, including California and Florida, as rates were aligned to the higher costs experienced throughout 2017. While headwinds from higher utilization and the mode of transportation continue in certain markets, we were able to offset this impact, resulting in margins which were closer in line with expectations.

WD Services

WD Services revenue was $77.5 million for the third quarter of 2018, a decrease of 8.4% from $84.7 million in the third quarter of 2017.   Excluding the impact of currency exchange rates, revenue declined 7.9% with the most significant component of this decline related to the sale of Ingeus France. Operating loss was $1.6 million in the third quarter of 2018 compared to income of $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2017. Included within WD Services operating loss in the third quarter of 2018 were $1.8 million related to   the settlement of certain receivables which were significantly aged due to issues with the implementation of a new payment system by the Saudi Arabian authorities in 2017, which resulted in a protracted process for collection.  The Company agreed to a payment discount, in order to collect the receivable. In addition, Q3 2018 includes an indirect tax in Korea related to prior periods and a loss related to the sale of Ingeus France. The third quarters of 2018 and 2017 also included restructuring and related costs of a minimal amount and $0.5 million, respectively.  WD Services Adjusted EBITDA was $3.7 million, or 4.8% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2018 compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $4.6 million, or 5.5% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2017.  Third quarter 2018 reflects a $2.1 million positive impact on revenue and a $0.4 million positive impact on operating income and Adjusted EBITDA as a result of the adoption of the new revenue recognition standard.

The decrease in revenue was primarily attributable to the sale of Ingeus France, the ongoing wind-down of the segment’s legacy UK employability program, and a decrease in revenue from our Saudi Arabia operations partially due to the deferral of revenue for the August and September 2018 contract period due to delays in executing this contract, and a reduction in revenue related to the offender rehabilitation program. These decreases were partially offset by increased revenue under the segment's health program, as well as a favorable impact of the adoption of the new revenue standard primarily related to the timing of revenue recognition under the segment's seasonal youth services program. WD Services third quarter 2018 Adjusted EBITDA declined compared to the same period last year primarily due to the wind down of the UK employability program and the contract delays in Saudi Arabia offset by the ongoing growth of the UK's health programs, the timing of the Youth services program and the savings related to our Ingeus Futures and RRP Delivery First programs.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and Other incurred a $6.2 million operating loss in the third quarter of 2018 compared to an operating loss of $8.8 million in the third quarter of 2017.  Included within Corporate and Other operating loss in the third quarter of 2018 were restructuring and related costs of $1.9 million, excluding accelerated depreciation, related to the consolidation of the holding company structure into LogistiCare. Corporate and Other Adjusted EBITDA was negative $4.0 million in the third quarter of 2018 compared to negative $8.6 million in the third quarter of 2017.

The decrease in Corporate and Other's Adjusted EBITDA loss was primarily due to a decrease in cash settled stock-based compensation expense of $2.6 million as a result of a reduction in the Company’s stock price in the third quarter of 2018 compared to an increase in the third quarter of 2017, together with a reduction in legal and consulting costs.

Matrix Investment (Equity Investment)

For the third quarter of 2018, Providence recorded a loss in equity earnings of $1.6 million related to its Matrix Investment compared to break-even for the third quarter of 2017.

As Providence’s interest in Matrix is accounted for as an equity method investment, the following numbers are not included within the Company’s consolidated results of operations. For the third quarter of 2018, Matrix’s revenue was $70.5 million, an increase of 20.3% from $58.6 million in the third quarter of 2017.  Matrix’s operating income was $1.5 million, for the third quarter of 2018, compared to $3.2 million, for the third quarter of 2017.  Included within Matrix’s operating income in the third quarter of 2018 were $0.6 million of management fees paid to Matrix shareholders, integration costs of $1.9 million and transaction costs of $0.1 million related to the February 2018 acquisition of HealthFair. Included within Matrix's operating income in the third quarter of 2017 were $0.6 million of management fees paid to Matrix shareholders.

Matrix's net loss was $4.4 million for the third quarter of 2018, compared to a net loss of $0.5 million for the third quarter of 2017. Matrix’s Adjusted EBITDA was $13.7 million, or 19.4% of revenue, for the third quarter of 2018, compared to $12.2 million, or 20.8% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2017.

The year-over-year revenue growth for the third quarter of 2018 was related to the continued growth in volumes in Matrix's core in-home assessment business this year and the addition of revenue from mobile visits due to the acquisition of HealthFair in the first quarter of 2018. The volume of mobile visits continue to run below initial expectations due to the slower ramp up of contracts but progress has been made in the quarter in terms of resolving root causes related to the delayed membership. Adjusted EBITDA increased year over year but the decline in Adjusted EBITDA margin was primarily due to the lower than anticipated mobile visit volume.

As of September 30, 2018, Matrix had cash of $24.3 million and $329.2 million of term loan debt outstanding under its credit facility, which was entered into in February 2018 in conjunction with the HealthFair acquisition. As of September 30, 2018, Providence's ownership interest in Matrix was 43.6%.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Adjustments

In addition to the financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release includes EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA and Segment-level Adjusted EBITDA for the Company and its operating segments, and Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS for the Company, which are performance measures that are not recognized under GAAP.  EBITDA is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations, net of taxes, before: (1) interest expense, net, (2) provision (benefit) for income taxes and (3) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA before certain items, including (as applicable): (1) restructuring and related charges, including costs related to our corporate reorganization, (2) foreign currency transactions, (3) equity in net earnings or losses of investees, (4) certain litigation related expenses, settlement income or other negotiated settlements relating to certain matters from prior periods, (5) gain or loss on sale of equity investments, (6) management fees, (7) certain transaction and related costs and (8) impairments.  Segment-level Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as Adjusted EBITDA for the company excluding the Adjusted EBITDA associated with corporate and holding company costs reported as our Corporate and Other Segment.  Adjusted Net Income is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations, net of tax, before certain items, including (1) restructuring and related charges, (2) foreign currency transactions, (3) equity in net earnings or losses of investees, (4) certain litigation related expenses, settlement income  or other negotiated settlements relating to certain matters from prior periods, (5) intangible amortization expense, (6) gain or loss on sale of equity investments, (7) the non-recurring impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, (8) excess tax charges associated with long term incentive plans, (9) the impact of adjustments on noncontrolling interests, (10) transaction and related costs, (11) the income tax impact of such adjustments and (12) impairments.  Adjusted EPS is calculated as Adjusted Net Income less (as applicable): (1) dividends on convertible preferred stock and (2) income allocated to participating stockholders, divided by the diluted weighted-average number of common shares outstanding.  We utilize these non-GAAP performance measures, which exclude certain expenses and amounts, because we believe the timing of such expenses is unpredictable and not driven by our core operating results, and therefore render comparisons with prior periods as well as with other companies in our industry less meaningful.  We believe such measures allow investors to gain a better understanding of the factors and trends affecting the ongoing operations of our business.  We consider our core operations to be the ongoing activities to provide services from which we earn revenue, including direct operating costs and indirect costs to support these activities.  In addition, our net earnings in equity investees are excluded from these measures, as we do not have the ability to manage these ventures, allocate resources within the ventures, or directly control their operations or performance.

Our non-GAAP financial measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently. In addition, there are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, and exclude expenses that may have a material impact on our reported financial results. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for the directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.  We urge you to review the reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures included below, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.
