Commenting on the results, Wayne T. Smith, chairman and chief executive officer of Community Health Systems, Inc., said, “We concluded 2019 with a strong finish to the year. Our successful divestiture program, along with strategic growth initiatives in our core portfolio of markets, has driven better results, including improved same-store volume and net revenue growth in 2019. As we enter 2020, we expect to deliver incremental growth, driven by a combination of continued same-store net revenue performance and execution across our strategic margin improvement programs.”

The Company completed 12 hospital divestitures during the year ended December 31, 2019 (including two divestitures that closed on January 1, 2019, in respect of which the Company received proceeds at a preliminary closing on December 31, 2018). On January 1, 2020, the Company completed the divestiture of three additional hospitals (in respect of which the Company received proceeds at a preliminary closing on December 31, 2019). On January 30, 2020, the Company entered into definitive agreements to sell two additional hospitals, which divestitures have not yet been completed. The Company intends to continue its portfolio rationalization strategy through at least mid-2020 and is pursuing additional interests for sale transactions, which are currently in various stages of negotiation with potential buyers. There can be no assurance that these potential divestitures (or the potential divestitures 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 2019 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 a hospital acquired in 2019 and the hospitals divested or closed in 2018 and 2019.

Both financial and statistical results include the operating results of divested hospitals through the effective closing date of each respective divestiture. Same-store operating results and statistical information exclude the results of a hospital acquired in 2019 and the hospitals divested or closed in 2018 and 2019. There were no discontinued operations reported for 2018 and 2019.

(c)

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, loss (gain) from early extinguishment of debt, impairment and loss on sale of businesses, 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 settlement and fair value adjustments on the CVR agreement liability related to the HMA legal proceedings and related legal expenses, 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 impact of changes in estimate to increase the professional liability claims accrual recorded during the second quarter of 2019 (which estimate was further revised in the third quarter of 2019 based on updated actuarial analysis) with respect to claims incurred in 2016 and prior years, and expense related to the valuation allowance recorded in the second quarter of 2019 to reserve the outstanding balance of a promissory note received from the buyer in connection with the sale of two of the Company’s hospitals in 2017, as well as income from a reduction of the valuation allowance on the outstanding balance of a promissory note from the buyer of another hospital. 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 metrics used in connection with determining short-term cash incentive compensation and the achievement of vesting criteria with respect to performance-based equity awards. 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 asset-based loan facility (the “ABL Facility”), which is a key component in the determination of the Company’s compliance with some of the covenants under the ABL 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 ABL Facility (although Adjusted EBITDA does not include all of the adjustments described in the ABL Facility).

Footnotes to Financial Highlights, Financial Statements and Selected Operating Data (Continued)

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 net loss attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. common stockholders for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, so the effect of dilutive securities is not considered because their effect would be antidilutive. If the Company had generated net income, the effect of restricted stock and stock option awards on the diluted shares calculation would have been an increase of 376,689 shares and 149,631 shares during the three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, and 133,866 shares and 68,687 shares during the year ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Both income from operations and net loss for the three months and year ended December 31, 2019, included non-cash expense of approximately $68 million and $138 million, respectively, primarily from impairment charges to reduce the value of long-lived assets, including allocated goodwill, at hospitals that the Company has identified for sale or has sold, and at certain underperforming hospitals. These impairment charges do not have an impact on the calculation of the Company’s financial covenants under the ABL Facility. Both income from operations and net loss for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018, included non-cash expense of approximately $354 million and $668 million, respectively, primarily from impairment charges to reduce the value of long-lived assets, including allocated goodwill, at hospitals that the Company has identified for sale or has sold, and at certain under-performing hospitals.

(h)

At December 31, 2019, the Company had outstanding borrowings of $273 million and approximately $442 million of additional borrowing capacity (after taking into consideration $145 million of outstanding letters of credit) under the ABL Facility.

On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted the new lease accounting standard issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) and codified in the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) as topic 842 (“ASC 842”). The lease standard in ASC 842 requires lessees to recognize most leases on their balance sheet with a right-of-use asset and a corresponding lease liability and classified as either finance or operating leases, which will impact the manner and timing of expense recognition of such leases over the lease term. Immaterial leases and leases with an initial lease term 12 months or less are excluded from recognition on the balance sheet.

Upon adoption, the Company recorded operating lease liabilities and the related right-of-use assets of approximately $673 million. The operating lease right-of-use assets are recorded on the condensed consolidated balance sheet as a component of other assets, net. The Company elected to adopt the modified transition method allowed by the FASB by electing not to recast prior comparative periods upon adoption. As a result, no changes were made to the condensed consolidated statement of loss for the three months and year ended December 31, 2018 or the condensed consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2018.

Regulation FD Disclosure

Set forth below is selected information concerning the Company’s projected consolidated operating results for the year ending December 31, 2020. These projections are based on the Company’s historical operating performance, current trends and other assumptions that the Company believes are reasonable at this time. The 2020 guidance should be considered in conjunction with the assumptions included herein. See pages 18 and 19 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:

 

             2020 Projection Range          

Net operating revenues (in millions)

   $  12,400        to      $  12,800  

Adjusted EBITDA (in millions)

   $ 1,650        to      $ 1,800  

Net loss per share — diluted

   $ (1.30      to      $ (0.60

Same-store hospital annual adjusted admissions growth

     1.5      to        2.5

Weighted-average diluted shares

     115.0        to        115.5  

The following assumptions were used in developing the 2020 guidance provided above:

 

   

The 2020 projections include the impact of completed divestitures and the planned divestitures subject to definitive agreements which are expected to close in 2020.

 

   

The Company’s projections exclude the following:

 

   

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; 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:

 

   

Same-store hospital annual adjusted admissions growth of 1.5% to 2.5% for 2020, 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 4.7% for 2020. 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 8.4%; however, this percentage 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 95% to 99% of total debt during 2020.

 

 

Expressed as a percentage of net operating revenues, net income attributable to noncontrolling interests of approximately 0.8% to 0.9% for 2020.

 

 

Expressed as a percentage of net operating revenues, provision for income taxes of approximately 0.6% to 0.7% for 2020.

A reconciliation of the Company’s projected 2020 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, 2020
 
             Low                      High          

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

  (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 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):

 

     2020
Guidance
    
Total        $400    to    $500         

 

 

Net cash provided by operating activities is projected as follows (in millions):

 

     2020
Guidance
    
Total        $600    to    $700

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.

our ability, where appropriate, to enter into and maintain provider arrangements with payors and the terms of these arrangements, which may be further affected by the increasing consolidation of health insurers and managed care companies and vertical integration efforts involving payors and healthcare providers;

 

   

changes in, or the failure to comply with, contract terms with payors and changes in reimbursement policies or 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 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;
