Commenting on the results, Wayne T. Smith, chairman and chief executive officer of Community Health Systems, Inc., said, “Our second quarter results reflect progress in our key areas of strategic focus, most notably improvements in same-store operating results, progress on divestitures and successful refinancings. As we complete additional divestitures this year, we believe our portfolio will become stronger, and more of our resources can be directed to markets where we have the greatest opportunities to drive incremental growth. We remain confident in our ability to strengthen our company through execution of our strategic growth initiatives, investments in high-quality healthcare services, and a continuous focus on expense management.”

During 2018, the Company has completed seven hospital divestitures. In addition, the Company has entered into definitive agreements to sell five additional hospitals, which divestitures have not yet been completed. The Company is pursuing interests for sale transactions involving hospitals, which, together with the hospitals that are currently subject to definitive agreements and the hospitals that have been divested during 2018, had a combined total of approximately $2.0 billion in annual net operating revenues and combined mid-single digit Adjusted EBITDA margins during 2017. These sale transactions are currently in various stages of negotiation with potential buyers. There can be no assurance that these potential divestitures (or the potential divestitures currently subject to definitive agreements) will be completed, or if they are completed, the ultimate timing of the completion of these divestitures. The Company continues to receive interest from potential acquirers for certain of its hospitals.

Financial and statistical data for 2018 and 2017 presented in this press release includes the operating results of divested hospitals through the effective closing date of each respective divestiture. Same-store operating results exclude the results of the hospitals divested in 2018 and 2017.

Information About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is EBITDA adjusted to add back net income attributable to noncontrolling interests and to exclude the effect of discontinued operations, (gain) loss from early extinguishment of debt, impairment and (gain) loss on sale of businesses, gain on sale of investments in unconsolidated affiliates, expense incurred related to the spin-off of QHC, expense incurred related to the sale of a majority ownership interest in the Company’s home care division, expense (income) related to government and other legal settlements and related costs, expense related to employee termination benefits and other restructuring charges, expense (income) from fair value adjustments on the CVR agreement liability accounted for at fair value related to the HMA legal proceedings and related legal expenses, and the overall impact of the change in estimate related to net patient revenue recorded in the fourth quarter of 2017 resulting from the increase in contractual allowances and the provision for bad debts.

For information regarding why the Company believes Adjusted EBITDA provides useful information to investors, and for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. stockholders, see footnote (e) to the Financial Highlights, Financial Statements and Selected Operating Data below.

Footnotes to Financial Highlights, Financial Statements and Selected Operating Data

 

(a) Continuing operating results exclude discontinued operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017. Both financial and statistical results exclude entities in discontinued operations for all periods presented. In addition, financial and statistical results include the operating results of divested hospitals through the effective closing date of each respective divestiture. Same-store operating results exclude the results of the hospitals divested in 2018 and 2017.

 

(b) The contingent value right (“CVR”) is included in other long-term liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets and entitles the holder to receive a cash payment up to $1.00 per CVR (subject to downward adjustment but not below zero), subject to the final resolution of certain legal matters pertaining to Health Management Associates, Inc. (“HMA”), as defined in the CVR agreement. If the aggregate amount of applicable losses under the CVR agreement exceeds a deductible of $18 million, then the amount payable in respect of each CVR shall be reduced (but not below zero) by an amount equal to the quotient obtained by dividing: (a) the product of (i) all losses in excess of the deductible and (ii) 90%; by (b) the number of CVRs outstanding on the date on which final resolution of the existing litigation occurs. Since the HMA acquisition date of January 27, 2014, approximately $35 million in costs have been incurred and approximately $30 million of settlements have been paid related to certain HMA legal matters, which collectively exceed the deductible of $18 million under the CVR agreement. The Company previously recorded an estimated fair value of the remaining underlying claims that will be covered by the CVR of $284 million as part of the acquisition accounting for HMA, which, after consideration of amounts paid and current estimates of valuation inputs, has been adjusted to its estimated fair value of $263 million at June 30, 2018. For the CVR valuation at June 30, 2018, the change in fair value from the estimate of $256 million at December 31, 2017 was primarily the result of a decrease in the discount rate applied to an estimated settlement amount. In addition, although future legal fees (which are expensed as incurred) associated with the HMA legal matters have not been accrued or included in the table below, such legal fees are taken into account in determining the total amount of reductions applied to the amounts owed to CVR holders.

The following table presents the impact of the recorded amounts as described above as applied to the CVR and the $18 million deductible and 10% co-insurance amounts (in millions):

The after-tax loss for the sold or held for sale hospitals, was approximately $6 million and $7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, respectively.

(e) EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure which consists of net loss attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. before interest, income taxes, and depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA, also a non-GAAP financial measure, is EBITDA adjusted to add back net income attributable to noncontrolling interests and to exclude the effect of discontinued operations, (gain) loss from early extinguishment of debt, impairment and (gain) loss on sale of businesses, gain on sale of investments in unconsolidated affiliates, expense incurred related to the spin-off of QHC, expense incurred related to the sale of a majority ownership interest in the Company’s home care division, expense (income) related to government and other legal settlements and related costs, expense related to employee termination benefits and other restructuring charges, expense (income) from fair value adjustments on the CVR agreement liability accounted for at fair value related to the HMA legal proceedings and related legal expenses, and the overall impact of the change in estimate related to net patient revenue recorded in the fourth quarter of 2017 resulting from the increase in contractual allowances and the provision for bad debts. The Company has from time to time sold noncontrolling interests in certain of its subsidiaries or acquired subsidiaries with existing noncontrolling interest ownership positions. The Company believes that it is useful to present Adjusted EBITDA because it adds back the portion of EBITDA attributable to these third-party interests and clarifies for investors the Company’s portion of EBITDA generated by continuing operations. The Company reports Adjusted EBITDA as a measure of financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is a key measure used by management to assess the operating performance of the Company’s hospital operations and to make decisions on the allocation of resources. Adjusted EBITDA is also used to evaluate the performance of the Company’s executive management team and is one of the primary targets used to determine short-term cash incentive compensation. In addition, management utilizes Adjusted EBITDA in assessing the Company’s consolidated results of operations and operational performance and in comparing the Company’s results of operations between periods. The Company believes it is useful to provide investors and other users of the Company’s financial statements this performance measure to align with how management assesses the Company’s results of operations. Adjusted EBITDA also is comparable to a similar metric called Consolidated EBITDA, as defined in the Company’s senior secured credit facility, which is a key component in the determination of the Company’s compliance with some of the covenants under the Company’s senior secured credit facility (including the Company’s ability to service debt and incur capital expenditures), and is used to determine the interest rate and commitment fee payable under the senior secured credit facility (although Adjusted EBITDA does not include all of the adjustments described in the senior secured credit facility).

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement of financial performance under U.S. GAAP. It should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating income, or any other performance measure calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and evaluating financial performance. The Company believes such adjustments are appropriate as the magnitude and frequency of such items can vary significantly and are not related to the assessment of normal operating performance. Additionally, this calculation of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

The following table reflects the reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA, as defined, to net loss attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. stockholders as derived directly from the condensed consolidated financial statements (in millions):

The Company generated a loss from continuing operations attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. common stockholders for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, so the effect of dilutive securities is not considered because their effect would be antidilutive. If the Company had generated income from continuing operations, the effect of restricted stock awards on the diluted shares calculation would have been an increase of 47,754 shares and 215,313 shares during the three months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively, and 60,558 shares and 147,043 shares during the six months ended June 30, 2018 and 2017, respectively.

(h) The following supplemental tables reconcile loss from continuing operations and net loss attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. common stockholders, as reported, on a per share (diluted) basis, with the adjustments described herein (total per share amounts may not add due to rounding). The Company believes that the presentation of non-GAAP adjusted loss from continuing operations per share (diluted) and non-GAAP adjusted net loss attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. common stockholders presents useful information to investors through highlighting the impact on earnings per share of selected items used in calculating Adjusted EBITDA.

(i) Both income from operations and loss from continuing operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, included non-cash expense of approximately $174 million and $202 million, respectively, related to impairment charges to reduce the value of long-lived assets, primarily allocated goodwill, at hospitals that the Company has identified for sale or sold. Both income from operations and loss from continuing operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017, included non-cash expense of approximately $80 million and $330 million, respectively, related to impairment charges to reduce the value of long-lived assets, primarily allocated goodwill, at hospitals that the Company has identified for sale or sold. These impairment charges do not have an impact on the calculation of the Company’s financial covenants under the Company’s Credit Facility.

 

(j) The $(0.01) per share (diluted) and $(0.05) per share (diluted) of expense for “Government and other legal settlements and related costs” for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018, respectively, is the net impact of several lawsuits settled in principle during the related periods, and related legal expenses. The $(0.04) per share (diluted) of expense for “Government and other legal settlements and related costs” for the three months ended June 30, 2017, is the settlement in principle of several lawsuits during the three months ended June 30, 2017, and related legal expenses. The $0.19 per share (diluted) of income for “Government and other legal settlements and related costs” for the six months ended June 30, 2017, is primarily the impact of the shareholder derivative action settled during the six months ended June 30, 2017, net of related legal expenses.

 

(k) On January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the new revenue recognition accounting standard issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) and codified in the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) as topic 606 (“ASC 606”). The revenue recognition standard in ASC 606 outlines a single comprehensive model for recognizing revenue as performance obligations, defined in a contract with a customer as goods or services transferred to the customer in exchange for consideration, are satisfied.

The Company applied the modified retrospective approach to all contracts when adopting ASC 606. As a result, the majority of what was previously classified as the provision for bad debts in the statement of loss is now reflected as implicit price concessions (as defined in ASC 606) and therefore included as a reduction to net operating revenues in 2018. For changes in credit issues not assessed at the date of service, the Company will prospectively recognize those amounts as a component of operating costs and expenses. For periods prior to the adoption of ASC 606, the provision for bad debts has been presented consistent with the previous revenue recognition standards that required it to be presented separately as a component of net operating revenues. Additionally, upon adoption of ASC 606 the allowance for doubtful accounts of approximately $3.9 billion at December 31, 2017 was reclassified as a component of net patient accounts receivable.

 

(l) Total per share amounts may not add due to rounding.

Regulation FD Disclosure

Set forth below is selected information concerning the Company’s projected consolidated operating results for the year ending December 31, 2018. These projections update selected guidance provided on May 1, 2018, and are based on the Company’s historical operating performance, current trends and other assumptions that the Company believes are reasonable at this time. The 2018 guidance should be considered in conjunction with the assumptions included herein. See pages 19 and 20 for a list of factors that could affect the future results of the Company or the healthcare industry generally.

The following is provided as guidance to analysts and investors:

 

     2018 Projection Range  

Net operating revenues (in millions)

   $ 13,900       to      $ 14,200  

Adjusted EBITDA (in millions)

   $ 1,600       to      $ 1,650  

Loss from continuing operations per share—diluted

   $ (1.85     to      $ (1.70

Same-store hospital annual adjusted admissions

     (1.0 )%      to        —  

Weighted-average diluted shares, in millions

     113.0       to        114.0  

The following assumptions were used in developing the 2018 guidance provided above:

 

    The current completed and planned divestitures generated approximately $2.0 billion of net operating revenues in 2017, with mid-single digit Adjusted EBITDA margins. The guidance assumes the completion of a majority of these divestitures and the related net operating revenues in 2018.

 

    The Company’s projections also exclude the following:

 

    Payments related to the CVRs issued in connection with the HMA acquisition, and changes in the valuation of liabilities underlying the CVR;

 

    Effect of debt refinancing activities, including gains and losses from early extinguishment of debt;

 

    Impairment of goodwill and long-lived assets;

 

    Gains or losses from the sales of businesses;

 

    Employee termination benefits and restructuring costs;

 

    Resolution of government investigations or other significant legal settlements;

 

    Costs incurred in connection with divestitures;

 

    Insurance recoveries that may be received for property losses and business interruption coverage related to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma;

 

    Changes in the estimated impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (“Tax Act”) on our deferred tax assets and liabilities; and

 

    Other significant gains or losses that neither relate to the ordinary course of business nor reflect the Company’s underlying business performance.

Other assumptions used in the above guidance:

 

    Health Information Technology (HITECH) electronic health records incentive reimbursement will be zero for the year ending December 31, 2018.

 

    Same-store hospital annual adjusted admissions decline of (1.0)% to 0.0% for 2018, which does not take into account service closures and weather-related or other unusual events.

    Expressed as a percentage of net operating revenues, depreciation and amortization of approximately 4.9% to 5.0% for 2018. Additionally, this is a fixed cost and the percentages may change as revenue varies. Such amounts exclude the possible impact of any future hospital fixed asset impairments.

 

    Interest expense, expressed as a percentage of net operating revenues, of approximately 7.1% to 7.2%; however, interest expense may vary as revenue varies. Interest expense has been adjusted to reflect the repayment of debt with proceeds from the divestitures noted above, based on the expected timing of those divestitures. Total fixed rate debt, including swaps, is expected to average approximately 90% to 95% of total debt during 2018.

 

    Expressed as a percentage of net operating revenues, net income attributable to noncontrolling interests of approximately 0.5% to 0.6% for 2018.

 

    Expressed as a percentage of net operating revenues, provision for income taxes of approximately 0.4% to 0.5% for 2018.

A reconciliation of the Company’s projected 2018 Adjusted EBITDA, a forward-looking non-GAAP financial measure, to the Company’s projected net loss attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. stockholders, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, is shown below:

 

     Year Ending  
     December 31, 2018  
     Low      High  

Net loss attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. stockholders (1)

   $ (211    $ (192

Adjustments:

Interest expense, net

     990        1,010  

Provision for income taxes

     61        67  

Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests

     70        75  
  

 

 

    

 

 

 

Adjusted EBITDA (1)

   $ 1,600      $ 1,650  
  

 

 

    

 

 

 

 

  (1) The Company does not include in this reconciliation the impact of certain items not included in the Company’s forecast set forth above that would be included in a reconciliation of historical net loss attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. stockholders to Adjusted EBITDA such as, but not limited to, (gains) losses from early extinguishment of debt, impairment and (gain) loss on sale of businesses, and expense (income) related to government and other legal settlements and related costs, in light of the fact that such items are not determinable, and/or the inherent difficulty in quantifying such projected amounts, on a forward-looking basis.

 

    Capital expenditures are projected as follows (in millions):

 

     2018  
     Guidance  

Total

   $ 500        to      $ 575  

 

    Net cash provided by operating activities, including accelerated interest payments of approximately $60 million and increased interest payments from higher interest rates of approximately $65 million associated with debt refinancing, is projected as follows (in millions):

 

     2018  
     Guidance  

Total

   $ 550        to      $ 650  

 

    Diluted weighted-average shares outstanding are projected to be between approximately 113.0 million to 114.0 million for 2018.

This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 that involve risk and uncertainties. All statements in this press release other than statements of historical fact, including statements regarding projections, expected operating results, and other events that depend upon or refer to future events or conditions or that include words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” “thinks,” and similar expressions, are forward-looking statements. Although the Company believes that these forward-looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, these assumptions are inherently subject to significant economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately and may be beyond the control of the Company. Accordingly, the Company cannot give any assurance that its expectations will in fact occur and cautions that actual results may differ materially from those in the forward-looking statements. A number of factors could affect the future results of the Company or the healthcare industry generally and could cause the Company’s expected results to differ materially from those expressed in this press release.

These factors include, among other things:

 

    general economic and business conditions, both nationally and in the regions in which we operate;

 

    the impact of changes made to the Affordable Care Act, the potential for repeal or additional changes to the Affordable Care Act, its implementation or its interpretation (including through executive orders), as well as changes in other federal, state or local laws or regulations affecting our business;

    changes in, or the failure to comply with, governmental regulations;

 

    potential adverse impact of known and unknown government investigations, audits, and federal and state false claims act litigation and other legal proceedings;

    changes in, or the failure to comply with, contract terms with payors and changes in reimbursement rates paid by federal or state healthcare programs or commercial payors;

 

    any potential additional impairments in the carrying value of goodwill, other intangible assets, or other long-lived assets, or changes in the useful lives of other intangible assets;

 

    changes in inpatient or outpatient Medicare and Medicaid payment levels and methodologies;

 

    the effects related to the continued implementation of the sequestration spending reductions and the potential for future deficit reduction legislation;

 

    increases in the amount and risk of collectability of patient accounts receivable, including decreases in collectability which may result from, among other things, self-pay growth and difficulties in recovering payments for which patients are responsible, including co-pays and deductibles;

    the efforts of insurers, healthcare providers, large employer groups and others to contain healthcare costs, including the trend toward value-based purchasing;

 

    our ongoing ability to demonstrate meaningful use of certified electronic health record technology and recognize income for the related Medicare or Medicaid incentive payments, to the extent such payments have not expired;

    the impact that changes in our relationships with joint venture or syndication partners could have on effectively operating our hospitals or ancillary services or in advancing strategic opportunities;

 

    our ability to successfully integrate any acquired hospitals, or to recognize expected synergies from acquisitions;

 

    the impact of seasonal severe weather conditions, including the timing and amount of insurance recoveries in relation to severe weather events such as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which impacted several of our affiliated hospitals in 2017;

 

    our ability to obtain adequate levels of general and professional liability insurance;

 

    timeliness of reimbursement payments received under government programs;

The Company cautions that the projections for calendar year 2018 set forth in this press release are given as of the date hereof based on currently available information. The Company undertakes no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements, or to make any other forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.
