FRISCO, Texas, (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Addus HomeCare Corporation /zigman2/quotes/203511287/composite ADUS +0.02% , a provider of home care services, today announced its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2021.

Net service revenues were $217.9 million for the second quarter of 2021, up 18.1% from $184.6 million for the second quarter of 2020. Net income was $11.6 million, up 67.9% compared with $6.9 million for the second quarter of 2020, while net income per diluted share was $0.72 compared with $0.43 per diluted share for the prior-year period. Adjusted net income per diluted share increased 23.3% to $0.90 for the second quarter of 2021 from $0.73 for the second quarter of 2020.

Adjusted net income per diluted share for the second quarter of 2021 excludes the impact of a retroactive Illinois rate increase of $0.07, acquisition and de novo expenses of $0.11, restructure and other costs of $0.02 and stock-based compensation expense of $0.12. (See page 9 for a reconciliation of all non-GAAP and GAAP financial measures in this news release.) Adjusted EBITDA increased 30.1% to $24.3 million for the second quarter of 2021 from $18.7 million for the second quarter of 2020.

For the first six months of 2021, net service revenues increased 12.9% to $423.2 million from $374.8 million for the prior-year period. Net income increased 31.6% to $20.5 million for the first six months of 2021 compared with $15.6 million for the same period in 2020, and net income per diluted share was $1.28 compared with $0.98 per diluted share. Adjusted net income increased 14.2% to $27.4 million for the first six months of 2021 compared with $24.0 million for the prior-year period, while adjusted net income per diluted share grew 12.5% to $1.71 from $1.52. Adjusted EBITDA increased 23.7% to $45.1 million for the first six months of 2021 from $36.4 million for the first six months of 2020.

At June 30, 2021, the Company had cash of $139.4 million and bank debt of $196.1 million, while availability under its revolving credit facility was $112.8 million. Net cash provided in operating activities was $15.0 million for the second quarter of 2021.

Dirk Allison, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased with the trends in our business for the second quarter of 2021, as Addus delivered solid financial and operating results. We experienced higher demand in the second quarter, leading to 7.4% organic growth for our personal care services, which accounted for 80.9% of our total revenue. Over the last twelve months, this organic growth has averaged approximately 5%, at the high end of our target range of 3-5%. Additionally, our home health business had a strong quarter, up 24.7% over the same period last year. While admissions were up in our hospice business, which includes the Queen City acquisition, we continued to experience a shorter median length of stay than we have seen historically, which affected census growth. Our median length of stay and average daily census increased sequentially, and we expect that volume trends in hospice will continue to improve.”

Mr. Allison continued, “Addus plays a critical and growing role in today’s healthcare continuum with our ability to safely serve the needs of more patients in their homes. We believe that federal policymakers and our states and payors increasingly recognize this value, particularly following the pandemic of the last fifteen months. We appreciate this recognition and support. As an example of this recognition, Illinois recently announced a significant investment in home care providers with a retroactive rate increase related to the first quarter of this year to match the previously announced increase that was effective April 1, 2021.”

Amended and Restated Credit Facility The Company also announced that it has executed on a new senior secured credit facility effective July 30, 2021, that expands its revolving credit to $600 million from $300 million. The agreement has an accordion feature that enables the credit facility to be expanded by an incremental $125 million for funding acquisitions. The maturity of the new facility has also been extended from May 2023 to July 2026. Capital One, National Association, acted as lead agent for the bank lending group.

Mr. Allison commented, “We are excited to complete this significant expansion of our credit facility to support our ability to grow, both organically and through acquisitions. We appreciate the confidence in our business demonstrated by the significant financial institutions participating in the bank lending group.”

Acquisitions Addus also closed its previously announced acquisition of Armada Home Health and Hospice on August 1, 2021. Allison added, “We completed the acquisition of Armada to increase our clinical depth and operational strength in New Mexico and enhance our ability to provide all three levels of home care in this important market for Addus. We are pleased to welcome Armada’s experienced management team and clinical staff to the Addus family. Our acquisition pipeline continues to be strong, and we remain focused on identifying opportunities to add clinical services to our existing personal care markets with the goal of having all three levels of home care in additional markets. With our new credit facility, we continue to have the financial capacity to build on our track record of completing strategic acquisitions to extend our market reach.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures The information provided in this release includes adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income per diluted share, which are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company defines adjusted net income as net income before acquisition and de novo expenses, stock-based compensation expense, restructure expenses, and other costs. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, taxes, depreciation, amortization, acquisition and de novo expenses, stock-based compensation expense, restructure expenses, and other costs. The Company defines adjusted diluted earnings per share as earnings per share, adjusted for acquisition and de novo expenses, stock compensation expense, restructure expenses, and other costs. The Company defined adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted earnings per share to exclude net COVID expenses arising from the pandemic from the second quarter of 2020 to the first quarter of 2021. The Company defines adjusted net service revenues as revenue adjusted for the closure of certain sites. The Company has provided, in the financial statement tables included in this press release, a reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income, a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income, a reconciliation of adjusted diluted earnings per share to earnings per share, and a reconciliation of adjusted net service revenues to net service revenues, in each case, the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Management believes that adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted earnings per share, and adjusted net service revenues are useful to investors, management and others in evaluating the Company’s operating performance, to provide investors with insight and consistency in the Company’s financial reporting and to present a basis for comparison of the Company’s business operations among periods, and to facilitate comparison with the results of the Company’s peers.
