Exhibit 99.1
Healthcare Services Group, Inc.
Reports Q4 2021 Results

BENSALEM, PA, February 9, 2022 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Healthcare Services Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:HCSG) (the “Company”) reported for the three months ended December 31, 2021 revenue of $420.4 million and net income of $2.1 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted common share. The Company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.21125 per common share, the 74th consecutive increase since the initiation of dividend payments in 2003.

Ted Wahl, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our fourth quarter results reflect continued margin pressures resulting from workforce availability, inflation and supply chain disruption. We remain actively engaged with our customers to modify our service agreements to adjust for the extraordinary inflation experienced during the second half of 2021, as well account for future inflation on a real-time basis. We expect these service agreement modifications to be completed throughout the first half of 2022, with a goal of exiting the year with cost of services in line with our historical target of 86%.”

Mr. Wahl concluded, “We are encouraged that we’ve seen relative stability in industry census since August as operators have worked through the clinical challenges of both the Delta and Omicron strains. Having managed through those challenges, we are cautiously optimistic that the availability of staff improves, labor market pressure stabilizes and operators are able to build back their census in the year ahead. We will continue to monitor industry recovery and remain confident that, despite near-term headwinds, the long-term growth outlook for the Company remains strong given our market leadership, efficient operating model and the attractive demographics.”

Fourth Quarter Results

Revenue for the quarter was $420.4 million, with housekeeping & laundry and dining & nutrition segment revenues of $200.0 million and $220.4 million, respectively.

Direct cost of services was reported at $377.2 million, or 89.7%. Cost of services was impacted by increases in labor and supply costs. The Company expects the aforementioned service agreement modifications to be completed throughout the first half of 2022, with a goal of exiting the year with cost of services in line with its historical target of 86%.

Housekeeping & laundry and dining & nutrition segment margins were 5.7% and 2.1%, respectively.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) was reported at $44.3 million; after adjusting for the $2.7 million increase in deferred compensation, actual SG&A was $41.6 million. SG&A was impacted by $2.0 million of non-recurring items. In the year ahead, the Company expects SG&A to approximate 8.5% to 9.5%, with the opportunity for ongoing efficiencies.

The Company reported an effective tax rate of 25.8% for the year. Its Q4 effective tax rate was impacted by lower income before taxes and other discrete items related to the quarter. The Company expects a 2022 tax rate of 24% to 26%.

Cash flow from operations for the quarter was $31.4 million and was impacted by a $3.9 million increase in accrued payroll, including the impact of one-half, or $22.1 million, of the CARES Act deferred payroll tax repayment. DSO for the quarter was 64 days.

Exhibit 99.1

This release and any schedules incorporated by reference into it may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of federal securities laws, which are not historical facts but rather are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about our business and industry, and our beliefs and assumptions. Words such as “believes,” “anticipates,” “plans,” “expects,” “estimates,” “will,” “goal,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. The inclusion of forward-looking statements should not be regarded as a representation by us that any of our plans will be achieved. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Such forward-looking information is also subject to various risks and uncertainties. Such risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, risks arising from our providing services to the healthcare industry, primarily providers of long-term care; the impact of and future effects of the COVID-19 pandemic or other potential pandemics; having a significant portion of our consolidated revenues contributed by one customer during the year ended December 31, 2021; credit and collection risks associated with the healthcare industry; our claims experience related to workers’ compensation and general liability insurance (including any litigation claims, enforcement actions, regulatory actions and investigations arising from personal injury and loss of life related to COVID-19); the effects of changes in, or interpretations of laws and regulations governing the healthcare industry, our workforce and services provided, including state and local regulations pertaining to the taxability of our services and other labor-related matters such as minimum wage increases; the Company's expectations with respect to selling, general, and administrative expense; the impact of the concluded Securities and Exchange Commission investigation and related class action lawsuit; and the risk factors described in Part I of our Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 under “Government Regulation of Clients,” “Service Agreements and Collections,” and “Competition” and under Item 1A. “Risk Factors” in such Form 10-K.

These factors, in addition to delays in payments from customers and/or customers in bankruptcy, have resulted in, and could continue to result in, significant additional bad debts in the near future. Additionally, our operating results would be adversely affected by continued inflation particularly if increases in the costs of labor and labor-related costs, materials, supplies and equipment used in performing services (including the impact of potential tariffs and COVID-19) could not be passed on to our customers.

In addition, we believe that to improve our financial performance we must continue to obtain service agreements with new customers, retain and provide new services to existing customers, achieve modest price increases on current service agreements with existing customers and/or maintain internal cost reduction strategies at our various operational levels. Furthermore, we believe that our ability to sustain the internal development of managerial personnel is an important factor impacting future operating results and the successful execution of our projected growth strategies. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in that regard.

Healthcare Services Group, Inc. is the largest national provider of professional housekeeping, laundry and dietary services to long-term care and related health care facilities.
