DaVita 3rd Quarter 2012 Results

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- DaVita Inc. (NYS: DVA) today announced results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Net income attributable to DaVita Inc. for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $144.7 million and $427.8 million, or $1.50 per share and $4.46 per share, respectively, excluding for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 an after-tax legal proceeding contingency accrual and related expense of $47.6 million, or $0.50 per share, that occurred in the second quarter of 2012. Net income attributable to DaVita Inc. for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 including this item was $380.2 million, or $3.96 per share.

Our operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, include an additional $5.4 million of after-tax debt expense, or $0.06 per share, resulting from the proposed amendments under our senior secured credit facilities as well as issuing the New Senior Notes in advance of the potential acquisition of HCP.


Net income attributable to DaVita Inc. for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $135.4 million and $344.3 million, or $1.42 per share and $3.54 per share, respectively, excluding for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 an after-tax non-cash goodwill impairment charge of approximately $14.4 million, or $0.14 per share, that was recorded in the second quarter of 2011 related to our infusion therapy business. Net income attributable to DaVita Inc. for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 including this item was $329.9 million or $3.40 per share.

Financial and operating highlights include:

  • Cash Flow: For the rolling twelve months ended September 30, 2012, operating cash flow was $1,051 million and free cash flow was $665 million. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, operating cash flow was $367 million and free cash flow was $271 million. For a definition of free cash flow see Note 4 to the reconciliations of non-GAAP measures.
  • Operating Income: Operating income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $341 million and $987 million, respectively, excluding for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 the pre-tax legal proceeding contingency accrual and related expenses of $78 million. Operating income for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 including this item was $909 million.

Operating income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 was $319 million and $825 million, respectively, excluding for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 the pre-tax non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $24 million. Operating income for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 including this item was $801 million.

  • Volume: Total U.S. treatments for the third quarter of 2012 were 5,550,645, or 71,162 treatments per day, representing a per day increase of 12.3% over the third quarter of 2011. Non-acquired treatment growth, as well as our normalized non-acquired treatment growth in the quarter, were both 4.4% over the prior year's third quarter.
  • Effective Tax Rate: Our effective tax rate was 36.4% for both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively. This effective tax rate is impacted by the amount of third party owners' income attributable to non-tax paying entities. The effective tax rate attributable to DaVita Inc. was 40.5% and 40.8% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012, respectively. We still expect our 2012 effective tax rate attributable to DaVita Inc. to be in the range of 40.0% to 41.0%.
  • Acquisition: As previously announced on May 21, 2012, we entered into a definitive merger agreement to acquire HealthCare Partners (HCP), one of the country's largest operators of medical groups and physician networks. The total purchase price to be paid by DaVita Inc. will consist of $3.66 billion in cash and approximately 9.38 million shares of DaVita common stock, subject to post-close adjustments. In addition to the total merger consideration payable at close, DaVita will pay to the owners of HCP a total of up to $275 million of additional cash consideration in the form of two separate earn-out payments if certain financial performance targets are achieved by HCP in 2012 and 2013. We expect the transaction to close in early November 2012 and anticipate HCP operating results will be included in our consolidated operating results beginning in November 2012.
  • Debt Transactions: As previously announced, in August 2012 we entered into amendments to our existing senior secured credit facilities to permit additional borrowings under the credit agreement in an aggregate principal amount of $3.0 billion to be used to finance a portion of the HCP transaction. For further details regarding these amendments, see our SEC filing on Form 8-K dated August 28, 2012.

On August 28, 2012 we issued $1.25 billion aggregate principal amount of 5 ¾% senior notes due 2022 (New Senior Notes). All of the proceeds from the issuance of the New Senior Notes along with related fees and interest through November 30, 2012 were deposited into escrow pending the consummation of the HCP acquisition. For further details regarding this transaction, see our SEC filings on Form 8-K dated August 28, 2012 and August 16, 2012.

  • Center Activity: As of September 30, 2012, we operated or provided administrative services at 1,912 outpatient dialysis centers located in the United States serving approximately 150,000 patients and 24 outpatient dialysis centers serving approximately 1,200 patients that are located in five countries outside of the United States. During the third quarter of 2012, we acquired 10 centers and opened a total of 21 centers located in the United States. We also opened two centers and provided administrative services to three additional centers outside of the United States.

Outlook

We are updating our operating income guidance for 2012 for our dialysis services and related ancillary businesses to now be in the range of $1,315 million to $1,330 million. Our previous operating income guidance for our dialysis services and related ancillary businesses was in the range of $1,275 million to $1,325 million. Following the expected close of the HCP acquisition in early November 2012, we expect the incremental operating income contribution from HCP to be in the range of $25 million to $30 million per month for the remainder of the year. Our operating income guidance for our dialysis services and related ancillary businesses for 2012 excludes the legal proceeding contingency accrual and related expenses of $78 million and transaction expenses related to the HCP acquisition.

Our consolidated operating income guidance for 2013 is expected to be in the range of $1,750 million to $1,900 million including the operating results of HCP. Our operating income guidance for 2013 for our dialysis services and related ancillary businesses is expected to be in the range of $1,350 million to $1,450 million and our operating income guidance for 2013 for HCP is expected to be in the range of $400 million to $450 million. We also expect our consolidated operating cash flows for 2013 to be in the range of $1,350 million to $1,500 million. These projections and the underlying assumptions involve significant risks and uncertainties, including those described below, and actual results may vary significantly from these current projections.

We will be holding a conference call to discuss our results for the thirdquarter ended September30, 2012 on October 30, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The dial in number is 800-399-4406. A replay of the conference call will be available on DaVita's official web page, www.davita.com, for the following 30 days.

This release contains forward-looking statements, within the meaning of the federal securities laws, including statements related to our guidance and expectations for our 2012 and 2013 operating income, our 2013 operating cash flows and our 2012 effective tax rate attributable to DaVita Inc., and the anticipated timing and closing of the HCP transaction.Factors that could impact future results include the uncertainties associated with governmental regulations, general economic and other market conditions, competition, accounting estimates, the variability of our cash flows and the risk factors set forth in our SEC filings, including our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 and subsequent quarterly reports to be filed on Form 10-Q or current reports on Form 8-K. The forward-looking statements should be considered in light of these risks and uncertainties.

These risks and uncertainties include those relating to:

  • the concentration of profits generated from commercial payor plans,
  • continued downward pressure on average realized payment rates from commercial payors, which may result in the loss of revenues or patients,
  • a reduction in the number of patients under higher-paying commercial plans,
  • a reduction in government payment rates under the Medicare End Stage Renal Disease program or other government-based programs,
  • the impact of health care reform legislation that was enacted in the United States in March 2010,
  • changes in pharmaceutical or anemia management practice patterns, payment policies, or pharmaceutical pricing,
  • our ability to maintain contracts with physician medical directors,
  • legal compliance risks, including our continued compliance with complex government regulations,
  • current or potential investigations by various government entities and related government or private-party proceedings,
  • continued increased competition from large and medium-sized dialysis providers that compete directly with us,
  • the emergence of new models of care introduced by the government or private sector, such as accountable care organizations, independent practice association and integrated delivery systems, and changing affiliation models for physicians plans, such as employment by hospitals, that may erode our patient base and reimbursement rates,
  • our ability to complete any acquisitions or mergers, including the consummation of the HCP transaction, dispositions that we might be considering or announce, or to integrate and successfully operate any business we may acquire, including the HCP business, or to expand our operations and services to markets outside the United States, or to businesses outside of dialysis,
  • variability of DaVita's cash flows, or
  • risks arising from the use of accounting estimates in our financial statements.

In addition, upon closing of the HCP transaction, certain other risks and uncertainties related to HCP will also affect these forward-looking statements, including those relating to:

  • the loss of key HCP employees following the HCP transaction,
  • potential disruption from the HCP transaction making it more difficult to maintain business and operational relationships with customers, partners, affiliated physicians and physician groups and others,
  • the risk that the cost of providing services under HCP's agreements will exceed HCP's compensation,
  • the risk that laws regulating the corporate practice of medicine could restrict the manner in which HCP conducts its business,
  • the risk that reductions in reimbursement rates and future regulations may negatively impact HCP's business, revenue and profitability,
  • the risk that HCP may not be able to successfully establish a presence in new geographic regions,
  • the risk that reductions in the quality ratings of health maintenance organization plan customers of HCP could have an adverse effect on HCP's business,
  • the fact that HCP faces certain competitive threats that could reduce its profitability, or
  • the risk that a disruption in HCP's healthcare provider networks could have an adverse effect on HCP's operations and profitability.

We base our forward-looking statements on information currently available to us at the time of this release, and we undertake no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of changes in underlying factors, new information, future events or otherwise.

This release contains non-GAAP financial measures. For reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP, see the attached reconciliation schedules. For the reasons stated in the reconciliation schedules, we believe our presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplemental information for investors.
