US Healthcare Services

NET Services

NET Services revenue was $309.2 million for the second quarter of 2016, an increase of 14.2% from $270.7 million in the second quarter of 2015. Operating income was $17.8 million, or 5.7% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2016, compared to $18.9 million, or 7.0% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was $20.7 million, or 6.7% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2016, compared to $21.2 million, or 7.8% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2015.

NET Services revenue was $600.1 million for the first half of 2016, an increase of 14.2% from $525.5 million in the first half of 2015. Operating income was $36.1 million, or 6.0% of revenue, for the first half of 2016, compared to $39.6 million, or 7.5% of revenue, for the first half of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was $41.9 million, or 7.0% of revenue, for the first half of 2016, compared to $44.2 million, or 8.4% of revenue, for the first half of 2015.

The year-over-year increase in NET Services revenue in the second quarter of 2016 was primarily due to new state and managed care organization contracts in multiple geographies as well as increased membership under certain existing contracts. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) as a percentage of revenue declined as a result of increased member utilization and additional compensation expense related to long-term incentive plans tied to value creation.

HA Services

HA Services revenue was $52.3 million in the second quarter of 2016, a decrease of 5.7% compared to the second quarter of 2015. Operating income was $6.7 million, or 12.8% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2016, compared to $6.3 million, or 11.3% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was $14.6 million, or 28.0% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2016, compared to $13.5 million, or 24.3% of revenue, in the second quarter of 2015.

HA Services revenue was $102.9 million for the first half of 2016, a decrease of 8.8% compared to the first half of 2015. Operating income was $11.0 million, or 10.7% of revenue, for the first half of 2016, compared to $12.8 million, or 11.3% of revenue, for the first half of 2015. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) was $26.8 million, or 26.0% of revenue, for the first half of 2016, compared to $27.1 million, or 24.1% of revenue, for the first half of 2015.

The decline in HA Services revenue in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the prior year period was due to a decline in the average price per assessment, which was largely the result of a change in customer mix in the second quarter of 2016 compared to the second quarter of 2015. In 2015, pricing was highest in the second quarter, which will not be the case in 2016. Adjusted EBITDA (non-GAAP) as a percentage of revenue increased due to management's continued success in driving efficiencies as well as a reduction in expense due to forfeited long-term awards, which have been reallocated to current employees.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Adjustments

In addition to the financial results prepared in accordance with US generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release includes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the Company and our operating segments and Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS for the Company, which are financial measures that are not recognized under GAAP. EBITDA is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations, 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 restructuring and termination costs and foreign currency adjustments. Adjusted Net Income is defined as income from continuing operations, net of tax plus net loss attributable to noncontrolling interest and before: (1) certain items, including restructuring and termination costs, and foreign currency adjustments, (2) intangible amortization expense and (3) the income tax impact of such adjustments. Adjusted EPS is calculated as Adjusted Net Income less (as applicable): (1) dividends on convertible preferred stock, (2) accretion of convertible preferred stock discount and (3) income allocated to participating stockholders, divided by the diluted weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. We utilize these non-GAAP measurements, which exclude certain expenses, 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 cash earnings capabilities of our business, for which capital investments are made and debt is serviced.

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.
