Medicare Accelerated and Advance Payment Program (“MAAPP Funds”)

On March 27, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government approved the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”). The CARES Act provided waivers, reimbursement, grants and other funds to assist health care providers during the COVID-19 pandemic, including $100.0 billion in appropriations for the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund, also referred to as the Provider Relief Fund, to be used for preventing, preparing, and responding to the coronavirus, and for reimbursing eligible health care providers for lost revenues and health care related expenses that are attributable to COVID-19.

The CARES Act allowed for qualified healthcare providers to receive advanced payments under the MAAPP Funds during the COVID-19 pandemic. Under this program, healthcare providers could choose to receive advanced payments for future Medicare services provided. The Company applied for and received approval from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) in April 2020. The Company recorded the $14.1 million in advance payments received as a liability. During the 2021 First Quarter, the Company repaid the MAAPP Funds of $14.1 million rather than applying them to future services performed.

Acquisition in First Quarter 2022

On March 31, 2022, the Company acquired a 70% interest in a six-clinic physical therapy practice in South Central Pennsylvania – Madden and Gilbert Physical Therapy, LLC. The practice’s owners retained 30% of the equity interests. The purchase price for the 70% equity interest was approximately $11.5 million. The business generates more than $7.5 million in annual revenue and has approximately 71,000 patient visits per year.

The Company’s strategy is to continue acquiring multi-clinic outpatient physical therapy practices, to develop outpatient physical therapy clinics as satellites in existing partnerships and to continue acquiring companies that provide industrial injury prevention services.

Quarterly Dividend

The Board of Directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.41 per share payable on June 14, 2022, to shareholders of record on May 16, 2022.

Management’s Comments

Chris Reading, Chief Executive Officer, said, “We finished the first quarter in strong fashion, despite a slow start, with visits heavily impacted by Omicron and our highest level ever of employee-related quarantines. I am very pleased with our same store volume numbers along with our cost management, with same store costs up only 0.4% on a per visit basis despite significant pricing pressure on labor and materials. We made a lot of progress in the quarter, and I am pleased with where we are as we enter a traditionally busy season for us. On the acquisition front, we expect to have another very productive year.”

U. S. PHYSICAL THERAPY, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES NON-GAAP MEASURES (IN THOUSANDS, EXCEPT PER SHARE DATA) (unaudited)

The following tables provide detail of the diluted earnings per share computation and reconcile net income attributable to USPH shareholders calculated in accordance with GAAP to Operating Results and Adjusted EBITDA. Management believes providing Operating Results and Adjusted EBITDA to investors is useful information for comparing the Company's period-to-period results.

Operating Results, a non-GAAP measure, equals net income attributable to USPH shareholders per the consolidated statements of income less the gain on the revaluation of the put-right liability. In accordance with GAAP, the revaluation of redeemable non-controlling interest, net of tax, is included in the earnings per basic and diluted share calculation, although it is not included in net income but charged directly to retained earnings.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to USPH shareholders before interest income, interest expense, taxes, depreciation, amortization, gain on revaluation of put-right liability and equity-based awards compensation expense. Management believes reporting Adjusted EBITDA is useful information for investors in comparing the Company’s period-to-period results as well as comparing with similar businesses which report adjusted EBITDA as defined by their company.

Management uses Operating Results and Adjusted EBITDA, which eliminates certain items described above that can be subject to volatility and unusual costs, as one the principal measures to evaluate and monitor financial performance period over period. Management believes that Operating Results and Adjusted EBITDA is useful information for investors to use in comparing the Company's period-to-period results as well as for comparing with other similar businesses since most do not have redeemable instruments and therefore have different equity structures.

Operating Results and Adjusted EBITDA are not measures of financial performance under GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA and Operating Results should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to, or substitute for, net income attributable to USPH shareholders presented in the consolidated financial statements.
