Disclosure NewswireTM

iCrowdNewswire - Jan 22, 2018

Company to Hold Conference Call and Provide Business Update

AUSTIN, Texas,  — Hanger, Inc. (OTC PINK: HNGR), the  leading provider of orthotic and prosthetic patient care services and solutions, today announced the filing of its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The Annual Report on Form 10-K contains information pertaining to the Company’s interim quarterly, year-to-date and annual results for 2016 and 2015. The filing reflects completion of a significant step in the Company’s ongoing efforts to become current in its filings with the SEC. Hanger is currently focused on completing its 2017 interim and annual financial statements, and currently anticipates it will file its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2017 during the second quarter of 2018.

 

“We have made significant progress in our efforts to remediate our financial reporting processes,” stated Thomas Kiraly, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Hanger, Inc. “We are now focused on the prompt preparation and audit of our 2017 financial statements and we anticipate becoming current with our SEC filings in 2018, followed thereafter by re-listing on a national stock exchange.” 

Vinit Asar, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hanger, Inc., stated “We have made substantial operational progress during 2015 and 2016 through O&P industry-leading investments in systems, infrastructure and people, with an aim to solidify Hanger’s position as the preferred provider of life-changing mobility solutions, delivered in a cost-efficient manner, with a keen focus on optimizing patient care and improved clinical outcomes. We are beginning to see the benefits of these investments through improvements in disallowance rates, same clinic revenue and improved efficiency in care delivery. We look forward to updating our associates, shareholders and the financial community during 2018 on our continued progress.” 

Business Update and Preliminary 2017 View

The Company has not yet completed the preparation of its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2017. However, it has previously provided certain preliminary estimates of its cash flows in Current Reports on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on May 8, 2017August 9, 2017 and November 9, 2017.   

The Company preliminarily estimates that consolidated net revenue for the year ended December 31, 2017 will total approximately $1.04 billion.  The Company believes on a preliminary basis that certain factors and estimated amounts that contributed to this approximate net revenue are:

  • Disallowance rates improved from 4.5 percent of adjusted gross revenue in 2016 to approximately 3.5 percent of adjusted gross revenue in 2017, contributing approximately $10 million in Patient Care net revenue growth. The Company also benefited from an improvement of approximately $4 million in bad debt expense in 2017;
  • Same clinic revenue growth was 0.8 percent for the year ended December 31, 2017 and 2.2 percent for the three month period ended December 31, 2017. These growth rates exclude the favorable effect of improvements in disallowance trends discussed above; and
  • The Company experienced a revenue decline of approximately $15 million from therapeutic services within the Products & Services segment in 2017, as skilled nursing facility clients were impacted by adverse industry trends.

The Company also benefited from approximately $6 million in annual savings in 2017 resulting from a reduction in workforce undertaken in December 2016.

All amounts relating to 2017 are preliminary and subject to material change as the Company completes the preparation and review of its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2017.

Financial Highlights for 2016 Compared to 2015

  • Net revenue in 2016 of $1.042 billion, compared to $1.067 billion for 2015.
    • During 2016, the implementation of centralized revenue cycle management and improvements in claims documentation processes affected productivity and lowered clinical throughput during the year. This contributed to a $25.1 million, or 2.4 percent, decrease in net revenue compared to 2015. The adoption of these processes has since improved the Company’s reimbursement rate through a reduction in disallowed revenue.
  • GAAP loss from operations was $72.1 million in 2016, compared to $349.6 million in 2015. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA was $108.5 million in 2016, compared to $117.2 million in 2015.
    • GAAP results include impairment of intangible asset charges, third party professional fees, modifications and extinguishment of debt, severance expense and income (loss) from discontinued operations.
    • The charges for the non-cash impairment of intangible assets totaled $86.2 million and $385.8 million in 2016 and 2015, respectively.
    • Expenses for third party professional fees incurred in connection with financial statement remediation, in excess of historical amounts, totaled $37.2 million and $23.5 million in 2016 and 2015, respectively.
  • GAAP diluted loss per share was $2.96 in 2016, compared to $9.18 in 2015. Non-GAAP adjusted diluted income per share was $0.39 in 2016, compared to $0.76 in 2015.
    • In addition to the other items discussed above, the decrease in income on a per share basis is due primarily to an increase in interest expense of $15.3 million in 2016.

Complete reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures are provided in the tables located at the end of this press release.   

Detailed Results: 2016 and 2015

For 2016, the Company’s net revenue of $1.042 billion declined $25.1 million, or 2.4 percent, compared to 2015. The net revenue decrease was driven by a $34.9 million, or 4.0 percent, decline in the Patient Care segment. This was partially offset by a $9.8 million, or 5.1 percent, increase in the Products & Services segment.

For 2015, the Company’s net revenue of $1.067 billion grew by $55.1 million, or 5.4 percent, compared to 2014. Same clinic revenue growth, acquisitions and improved claims disallowance rates were primary contributors to revenue growth. Net revenue increased by $37.9 million, or 4.5 percent, in the Patient Care segment and by $17.2 million, or 9.8 percent, in the Products & Services segment.

Patient Care Segment

For 2016, the Company’s Patient Care net revenue totaled $840.1 million, a decline of $34.9 million compared to 2015. The net revenue decrease was primarily the result of a reduction in clinic net revenue of $28.5 million and the impact of exiting the CARES business line in 2015, which resulted in a decline of $6.4 million in 2016 net revenue.

To address claims disallowance trends, during 2016, the Company launched a company-wide revenue cycle management initiative to improve claims documentation, quality and submission procedures. The impact of training, implementation and expanded clinic level administrative procedures affected productivity and lowered clinical throughput during the year, contributing to the Company’s clinic revenue decline. The adoption of these enhanced systems and procedures has improved the Company’s reimbursement submissions, clinic productivity and health outcomes.

In addition, during 2015, the Company commenced the exit of its CARES line of business within its Patient Care segment. CARES contributed zero revenue in 2016 and $6.4 million of revenue in 2015, accounting for 18 percent of the net revenue decline in the patient care segment in 2016 compared to 2015.

For 2015, Patient Care net revenue totaled $875.0 million, an increase of $37.9 million over 2014. The increase in Patient Care net revenue was driven by clinic organic and acquisition revenue growth of $55.6 million, which was partially offset by the consolidation and closure of clinics, which reduced revenue by $9.4 million, and the exit of the CARES business during 2015 which reduced comparative revenue by $8.3 million.

In 2015, the Company recorded a non-cash goodwill impairment charge for its Patient Care segment of $382.9 million, which is included in “Impairment of intangible assets” in the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive (loss) income.

Products & Services Segment

For 2016, the Company’s Products & Services net revenue totaled $202.0 million, a $9.8 million increase compared to 2015. The net revenue increase was largely the result of increased distribution business resulting primarily from the sale of componentry to third-party providers, and growth in therapeutic services net revenue arising from increased sales of equipment to customers.

For 2015, Products & Services revenue increased $17.2 million, driven by increases in the distribution of componentry to third-party providers and therapeutic services net revenue.

For 2016, the Company recorded a non-cash goodwill impairment charge to its Product & Services segment of $86.2 million. In 2015, the Company recorded $2.9 million in non-cash impairment charges related to this segment.  These charges are included in “Impairment of intangible assets” in the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive (loss) income.

Net Loss from Operations; Interest Expense

For 2016, net loss from operations was $72.1 million compared with a loss from operations of $349.6 million in 2015. The decrease in the net loss from continuing operations in 2016 was the result of lower charges for impairment of intangible assets in 2016 compared to 2015, partially offset by higher professional accounting and legal fees.

For 2015, net loss from operations was $349.6 million as compared with income from operations of $27.3 million in the prior year. This net loss resulted primarily from intangible asset impairment charges, partially offset by lower professional accounting and legal fees.

Interest expense for 2016 increased to $45.2 million from $29.9 million in 2015. This $15.3 million increase included $10.5 million of additional interest cost associated with early extinguishment of the Company’s senior notes and $4.8 millionof higher interest expense associated with the debt refinancing that occurred in the third quarter of 2016.

Liquidity

On December 31, 2016, Hanger had liquidity of $102.1 million, comprised of $7.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, and $94.9 million in available borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility, compared to $68.8 million as of December 31, 2015. The $33.3 million increase from 2015 was the result of an increase in net proceeds from long-term indebtedness of $44.6 million, which was partially offset by a net decrease in net cash flows from operating activities, investing activities, debt issuance costs and fees, and further reductions in the borrowing capacity under the revolving credit facility in 2016.

Additional Notes

Previously, on May 12, 2017, the Company filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2014, which included restated financial statements for certain prior financial periods.

EBITDA is defined as operating income before depreciation and amortization.  Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income before certain charges, impairments of intangible assets, third-party professional fees in excess of normal amounts incurred in connection with our financial statement remediation, debt extinguishment costs, expenses associated with equity-based compensation, severance expenses associated with significant reductions in force and expenses incurred in connection with our acquisitions.

We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as measures to assess the relative level of our indebtedness and our compliance with certain debt covenants which are based on these measures.   Additionally, we utilize these measures to assess our operating and financial performance.   We believe that these measures enhance a user’s understanding of normal operating income excluding certain charges, depreciation and amortization.  

Neither EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA are measures of financial performance computed in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) and should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operations, or other statement of operations or cash flow data prepared in conformity with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.  In addition, the calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations, and the amounts presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.  EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be indicative of historical operating results, and we do not intend these measures to be predictive of future results of operations.

(dollars in millions, except share and per share amounts)

             

Earnings Per Share (or “EPS”) is defined as net income divided by our diluted common shares during the applicable period.   Adjusted EPS is defined as EPS adjusted for impairments of intangible assets, third-party professional fees in excess of normal amounts incurred in connection with our financial statement remediation, debt extinguishment costs, severance expenses associated with significant reductions in force and expenses incurred in connection with our acquisitions and certain other charges.  

We utilize Adjusted EPS to assess our operating and financial performance.   We believe that this measure enhances a user’s understanding of normal operating results excluding certain charges.  

Adjusted EPS is not a measure of financial performance computed in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operations, or other statement of operations or cash flow data prepared in conformity with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity.  In addition, the calculation of Adjusted EPS is susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations, and the amounts presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies.  Adjusted EPS may not be indicative of historical operating results, and we do not intend these measures to be predictive of future results of operations.
