ATLANTA, Feb. 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Providence Service Corporation (the “Company” or “Providence”) (Nasdaq: PRSC), the nation's largest provider of non-emergency medical transportation ("NEMT") programs and holder of a minority interest in Matrix Medical Network, today reported financial results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2019.

Daniel E. Greenleaf, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “In the fourth quarter of 2019, Providence delivered strong revenue growth of 6.7%, net loss from continuing operations of $11.4 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $10.2 million. During the quarter, in response to higher transportation cost experienced throughout the year, the team remained focused on operational execution. This included a focus on network development to drive a more robust and competitive transportation network. On revenue, we were able to successfully renegotiate several contracts which contributed $4.0 million of in-quarter benefit.”

He continued, “For the year, our revenue grew by $125.0 million, or 9.0%, reflecting the mission-critical nature of our services to payors and members. Since joining the Company in December, I have been impressed by our team's unwavering commitment to serving our members. Looking ahead, I see compelling opportunities to leverage our leadership position in NEMT to drive continued revenue growth, sustainable margin expansion, value to our shareholders, and improved quality of life and better health outcomes for our members.”

Fourth Quarter 2019 Results

For the fourth quarter of 2019, the Company reported revenue of $384.8 million, an increase of 6.7% from $360.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Operating income was $7.6 million, or 2.0% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to operating loss of $0.7 million, or negative 0.2% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2018. Loss from continuing operations, net of tax, in the fourth quarter of 2019 was $11.4 million, or $0.97 loss per diluted common share, compared to loss from continuing operations, net of tax, of $1.5 million, or $0.20 loss per diluted common share, in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA was $10.2 million, or 2.6% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2019, compared to $27.3 million, or 7.6% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Adjusted Net Income in the fourth quarter of 2019 was $7.9 million, or $0.45 earnings per diluted common share, compared to $17.2 million, or $1.08 earnings per diluted common share, in the fourth quarter of 2018.

The quarter-over-quarter increase in revenue was a result of increased volume within existing contracts as well as rate changes and a new managed care organization ("MCO") contract in Minnesota. These increases were partially offset by the impact of contracts the Company no longer serves, including a state contract in Rhode Island and MCO contracts in California, Florida and New Mexico.

Adjusted EBITDA decreased in the fourth quarter of 2019 versus the fourth quarter of 2018 primarily due to increased transportation costs on a per trip basis in addition to higher utilization across multiple at-risk contracts. 

Matrix - Equity Investment

For the fourth quarter of 2019, Matrix recorded revenue of $64.6 million, a decrease of 1.8% from $65.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. Matrix had an operating loss of $60.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2019, primarily as a result of asset impairment charges of $55.1 million compared to an operating loss of $6.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2018. Providence recorded a loss in equity earnings of $23.5 million related to its Matrix equity investment for the fourth quarter of 2019 compared to a loss of $2.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2018.

In the fourth quarter of 2019, Matrix had Adjusted EBITDA of $6.3 million or 9.8% of revenue, compared to $12.5 million, or 18.9% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Adjusted EBITDA was impacted by higher direct and indirect costs, compared to the fourth quarter of 2018.

As of December 31, 2019, Providence's ownership interest and equity investment in Matrix was 43.6% and $130.9 million, respectively.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Adjustments

In addition to the financial results prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"), this press release includes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the Company and its 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) equity in net loss of investee, (3) certain litigation related expenses, settlement income or other negotiated settlements relating to certain matters from prior periods, (4) certain transaction and related costs, (5) asset impairment charges, and (6) gain on remeasurement of cost investment. Adjusted Net Income is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations, net of taxes, before certain items, including (1) restructuring and related charges, (2) equity in net loss of investee, (3) certain litigation related expenses, settlement income or other negotiated settlements relating to certain matters from prior periods, (4) intangible asset amortization, (5) certain transaction and related costs, (6) asset impairment charges, (7) gain on remeasurement of cost investment, and (8) the income tax impact of such adjustments. Adjusted EPS is calculated as Adjusted Net Income less (as applicable): (1) dividends on convertible preferred stock and (2) adjusted net income allocated to participating stockholders, divided by the diluted weighted-average number of common shares outstanding as calculated for Adjusted Net Income. 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 loss in equity investee is 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.
