Tenet Reports Third Quarter 2020 Results
and Provides Update on Effects of COVID-19
Net loss from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders in 3Q20 of $197 million (which included an after-tax loss of $237 million associated with early retirement of debt transactions) versus a net loss from continuing operations of $227 million in 3Q19 (which included an after-tax loss of $178 million associated with early retirement of debt transactions)

Debt refinancing during 3Q20 eliminated any significant debt maturities until June 2023 and reduces future annual cash interest expense by approximately $50 million

Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA in 3Q20 of $621 million excluding a $70 million reversal of COVID stimulus grant income from 2Q20 based on revised guidance all providers received from the federal government in September 2020, or $551 million including the grant income reversal, versus $639 million in 3Q19

Hospital segment net patient service revenue per adjusted admission up 17% on a same-hospital basis versus 3Q19; Ambulatory segment same-facility system-wide revenue per surgical case up 13% versus the prior year

Ambulatory segment Adjusted EBITDA growth of 10% compared to 3Q19 excluding the impact of a $13 million reversal of grant income

Continued focus on strategic cost reduction measures and corporate efficiencies helped mitigate the impact of COVID surges in certain markets during the quarter, including the impact of higher temporary labor and premium pay

Net cash from operations of $593 million in 3Q20 versus $419 million in 3Q19, growth of 42%; Free cash flow in 3Q20 of $507 million, or $331 million excluding $174 million of stimulus grants and $2 million of Medicare advances received in the quarter, compared to $263 million in 3Q19, growth of 26%


DALLAS — October 20, 2020 — Tenet Healthcare Corporation (Tenet) (NYSE: THC) today announced its results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 (3Q20).

Ronald A. Rittenmeyer, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “The third quarter of 2020 was in many ways more challenging than the second, with COVID positive inpatient census surging by approximately 64 percent in our markets in late July and August. Our operators executed exceptionally throughout our entire system, ensuring they cared for the surge in COVID patients and continued the safe return of non-COVID patient volumes closer to normalized levels. Our operating discipline was further demonstrated as we exceeded expectations for both Adjusted EBITDA of $621 million, before adjusting for the changes in guidance issued by HHS in September, as well as cash flows, which increased by 26 percent on a year-over-year comparison before the additions of grants and advances. With the issuance of revised guidance on grant income from HHS late in the quarter, we, along with other providers, are facing new challenges in terms of federal support. We believe our hospitals’ focus on




additions of strategic service lines, coupled with continued positive growth and efficiency at USPI and Conifer, has positioned us well this quarter and provides the basis for continued solid performance going forward.”

Tenet's results for 3Q20 versus the quarter ended September 30, 2019 (3Q19) as well as the nine months ended September 30, 2020 (YTD 3Q20) versus the nine months ended September 30, 2019 (YTD 3Q19) are as follows:

The table above as well as tables and discussions throughout this earnings release include certain financial measures that are not in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Reconciliations of GAAP measures to the Adjusted (non-GAAP) measures used are detailed in Tables #1-3 included at the end of this earnings release. Management’s reasoning for the use of these non-GAAP measures and descriptions of the various non-GAAP measures are included in the Non-GAAP Financial Measures section of this earnings release.

COVID-19 Pandemic (COVID)

As previously disclosed, the Company has been experiencing operational and financial challenges associated with COVID. As Tenet continues to manage COVID and its impact on operations, the Company remains committed to the highest standards of safety, with protocols focused on the protection of its patients and employees. Operational teams monitor real-time data to ensure sufficient staffing, intensive care unit bed capacity and personal protective equipment (PPE). Outpatient facilities are also safely performing elective procedures, and the Company's hospitals and ambulatory platform continue to follow all state and local guidelines concerning elective care.
As discussed below, Tenet has taken a number of actions since the onset of the pandemic to enhance its liquidity given the volatility of the environment. As of October 19, 2020, the Company had approximately $3.3 billion of cash on hand and no borrowings under its $1.9 billion line-of-credit facility.
Through October 19, 2020, the Company had received approximately $1.5 billion of Medicare advance payments from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Repayment terms for the Medicare advance payments were recently revised by the federal government with repayments now in stages that begin 12 months from the provider's receipt of the advance payments. An interest rate of 4 percent will also be assessed on any outstanding balances 29 months from the initial advance.
Additionally, the Company has received approximately $890 million of grant aid from federal stimulus relief funds associated with the pandemic. The Company recognized approximately $453 million of grant aid as income YTD 3Q20 ($8 million is included in equity in earnings of unconsolidated affiliates) with grants received being evaluated based on recently updated guidance from the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Results from Continuing Operations Attributable to Tenet Common Shareholders

Net loss from continuing operations attributable to the Company's common shareholders in 3Q20 was $197 million, or $1.87 per diluted share, (which included an after-tax loss of $237 million, or $2.23 per diluted share, from early retirement of debt transactions, partially offset by an income tax benefit of $119 million, or $1.12 per diluted share, associated with a change in tax accounting method) versus a net loss from continuing operations of $227 million, or $2.19 per diluted share, in 3Q19 (which included the impact of an after-tax loss of $178 million, or $1.70 per diluted share, associated with early retirement of debt transactions). Also, 3Q20 included the negative impact of $70 million pre-tax ($53 million after-tax, or $0.50 per diluted share) from the reversal of grant income recognized in the second quarter of 2020 (2Q20) due to the revised guidance from HHS discussed above.
For YTD 3Q20, the loss from continuing operations attributable to the Company's common shareholders was $15 million, or $0.14 per diluted share compared to a net loss from continuing operations of $223 million, or $2.16 per diluted share, for YTD 3Q19. YTD 3Q20 included an after-tax loss of $240 million, or $2.27 per diluted share, from early retirement of debt transactions, partially offset by the change in tax accounting method during 3Q20 of $119 million, or $1.12 per diluted share, and a favorable income tax benefit of $88 million, or $0.83 per diluted share, due to an increase in the deductibility of interest expense for income tax purposes as a result of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. YTD 3Q19 included an after-tax loss of $224 million, or $2.14 per diluted share, associated with early retirement of debt transactions.

Same-hospital adjusted admissions (decline) growth (a)(b)(15.9)%2.8 %(16.0)%1.8 %
(a) Same-hospital revenues and statistical data include those for the 65 hospitals operated by the Company’s Hospital segment continuously from January 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020. Revenues and volumes for any hospitals acquired or disposed of during that time frame are excluded.
(b) Adjusted admissions represents actual patient admissions adjusted to include outpatient services provided by facilities in our Hospital segment by multiplying actual patient admissions by the sum of gross inpatient revenues and outpatient revenues, then dividing that result by gross inpatient revenues.

Revenues and Volumes
Net operating revenues (which exclude grant income) in the Hospital segment were $3.803 billion in 3Q20, a decline of 1.2 percent from $3.850 billion in 3Q19. The decrease in revenues was due to lower patient volumes as a result of COVID, substantially offset by higher patient acuity and negotiated rate increases.
Net operating revenues also included $54 million from the California Provider Fee program in 3Q20 compared to $58 million in 3Q19.
On a same-hospital basis, net patient service revenues were $3.502 billion in 3Q20, a decline of 1.7 percent from $3.562 billion in 3Q19.
Net operating revenues in the Hospital segment were $10.725 billion in YTD 3Q20, a decline of 7.1 percent from $11.539 billion in YTD 3Q19. The decrease in revenues was due to lower patient volumes associated with COVID, partially offset by higher patient acuity, negotiated rate increases and admissions growth in January and February 2020.
On a same-hospital basis, net patient service revenues were $9.874 billion in YTD 3Q20, a decline of 7.4 percent from $10.666 billion in YTD 3Q19.
The table below demonstrates same-hospital volumes in June and during the quarter as a percent of the comparable period in 2019 on a same business-day basis:

Emergency Room visits~77%~80%~76%~74%~77%
Hospital surgeries~90%~87%~88%~92%~89%
Net patient service revenue per adjusted admission increased 16.9 percent year-over-year for 3Q20 primarily reflecting higher patient acuity, as well as negotiated rate increases.

Operating Expenses
Total selected operating expenses in the segment in 3Q20 increased $3 million as continuing cost efficiency initiatives, as well as necessary cost reductions due to the decline in patient volumes associated with the pandemic essentially offset the temporary staffing and premium pay costs in markets that experienced COVID surges during 3Q20 as well as higher supply costs for PPE. Selected operating expenses include salaries, wages and benefits, supplies and other operating expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA
Adjusted EBITDA in the segment was $297 million in 3Q20 excluding the negative impact of a $57 million reversal of grant income. Including the grant income reversal, Adjusted EBITDA was $240 million in 3Q20, a decrease of 29.8 percent compared to $342 million in 3Q19. The Adjusted EBITDA margin was 7.8 percent in 3Q20 (excluding the reversal of $57 million of grant income) compared to 8.9 percent in 3Q19.
For YTD 3Q20, Adjusted EBITDA was $1.074 billion compared to $1.048 billion in YTD 3Q19. The Adjusted EBITDA margin was 10.0 percent in YTD 3Q20 compared to 9.1 percent in YTD 3Q19.

Ambulatory Care (Ambulatory) Segment Results

Tenet’s Ambulatory business segment is comprised of the operations of United Surgical Partners International (USPI). As of September 30, 2020, USPI had interests in 263 ambulatory surgery centers, 40 urgent care centers (nearly all of which operate under the CareSpot brand), 24 imaging centers and 25 surgical hospitals in 28 states. The Company owns 95 percent of USPI.

(c) Same-facility system-wide revenues and statistical information include the results of the facilities in which the Ambulatory segment has an investment that are not consolidated by Tenet (of the 352 facilities at September 30, 2020, the results of 108 were accounted for under the equity method for unconsolidated affiliates). To help analyze the segment’s results of operations, management uses system-wide measures, which include revenues and cases of both consolidated and unconsolidated facilities.

Revenues and Volumes
The Ambulatory segment produced net operating revenues of $565 million in 3Q20, an increase of 8.2 percent compared to $522 million in 3Q19 reflecting higher acuity and new service line growth.
For YTD 3Q20, segment net operating revenues of $1.423 billion decreased 6.7 percent compared to $1.526 billion in YTD 3Q19 due to the impact of the pandemic.
On a same-facility system-wide basis, net operating revenues increased 6.5 percent in 3Q20, with total cases decreasing 0.3 percent and revenue per case increasing 6.9 percent. On a same-facility system-wide basis, YTD 3Q20 revenues decreased 7.8 percent, with total cases decreasing 12.9 percent and revenue per case increasing 5.9 percent.
In the surgical business, which represents the majority of segment net operating revenues, same-facility system-wide revenues increased 6.3 percent in 3Q20, with cases down 5.9 percent and revenue per case up 13.0 percent reflecting higher acuity cases and new service line growth. YTD 3Q20 same-facility system-wide surgical business revenues declined 7.8 percent, with cases down 18.8 percent and revenue per case up 13.6 percent.

$207 million in 3Q19. Adjusted EBITDA less facility-level noncontrolling interest (NCI) was $138 million, up 3.0 percent from $134 million in 3Q19, or up 9.0 percent excluding the impact of the grant income reversal.
For YTD 3Q20, the segment generated Adjusted EBITDA of $538 million, a decrease of 9.0 percent from $591 million in YTD 3Q19. Adjusted EBITDA less facility-level NCI was $344 million, a decline of 9.0 percent from $378 million in YTD 3Q19.
Adjusted EBITDA for each of the 3Q20 and YTD 3Q20 periods included the (reversal) recognition of $(13) million and $36 million, respectively, of grant income.

Conifer Segment Results

Tenet’s Conifer business segment provides healthcare point-of-service and end-to-end business process services in the areas of hospital and physician revenue cycle management as well as value-based care solutions to healthcare systems, individual hospitals, physician practices, self-insured organizations, healthcare plans and other entities.

Net operating revenues$325$336$962$1,040
Adjusted EBITDA$96$90$256$292
The Company continues to work on spinning off its Conifer segment. This transaction is expected to both enhance shareholder value and reduce the level of debt on Tenet through a tax-free debt-for-debt exchange.

Revenues
During 3Q20, Conifer segment revenues declined 3.3 percent to $325 million, from $336 million in 3Q19, primarily due to the impact of COVID volume declines of its clients, as well as attrition due to planned hospital divestitures by both Tenet and other clients. Revenues from third-party clients declined 3.6 percent to $189 million in 3Q20 from $196 million in 3Q19, which was anticipated due to the previously described hospital divestitures.
During YTD 3Q20, Conifer’s revenues declined 7.5 percent to $962 million, from $1.040 billion in YTD 3Q19 primarily due to the same factors impacting 3Q20 revenues. Revenues from third-party customers declined 5.1 percent to $577 million in YTD 3Q20 from $608 million in 3Q19.

Adjusted EBITDA
Conifer generated $96 million of Adjusted EBITDA in 3Q20, up 6.7 percent from $90 million in 3Q19 primarily due to its cost efficiency initiatives. The Adjusted EBITDA margin was 29.5 percent in 3Q20 compared to 26.8 percent in 3Q19.
Conifer generated $256 million of Adjusted EBITDA in YTD 3Q20, down 12.3 percent from $292 million in YTD 3Q19 primarily due to the impact of COVID on its clients. The Adjusted EBITDA margin was 26.6 percent in YTD 3Q20 compared to 28.1 percent in YTD 3Q19.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, is defined by the Company as net income available (loss attributable) to Tenet common shareholders before (1) the cumulative effect of changes in accounting principles, (2) net loss attributable (income available) to noncontrolling interests, (3) income (loss) from discontinued operations, (4) income tax expense (benefit), (5) gain (loss) from early extinguishment of debt, (6) other non-operating income (expense), net, (7) interest expense, (8) litigation and investigation (costs) benefits, net of reinsurance recoveries, (9) net gains (losses) on sales, consolidation and deconsolidation of facilities, (10) impairment and restructuring charges and acquisition-related costs, (11) depreciation and amortization and (12) income (loss) from divested and closed businesses. Litigation and investigation costs excluded do not include ordinary course of business malpractice and other litigation and related expenses.
Adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations, a non-GAAP measure, is defined by the Company as Adjusted net income available (loss attributable) from continuing operations to Tenet common shareholders, divided by the weighted average primary or diluted shares outstanding in the reporting period.
Adjusted net income available (loss attributable) from continuing operations to Tenet common shareholders, a non-GAAP measure, is defined by the Company as net income available (loss attributable) to Tenet common shareholders before (1) income (loss) from discontinued operations, (2) gain (loss) from early extinguishment of debt, (3) litigation and investigation (costs) benefits, net of reinsurance recoveries, (4) net gains (losses) on sales, consolidation and deconsolidation of facilities, (5) impairment and restructuring charges and acquisition-related costs, (6) income (loss) from divested and closed businesses and (7) the associated impact of these items on taxes and noncontrolling interests. Litigation and investigation costs excluded do not include ordinary course of business malpractice and other litigation and related expenses.
Free Cash Flow, a non-GAAP measure, is defined by the Company as (1) net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, less (2) purchases of property and equipment for continuing operations.
Adjusted Free Cash Flow, a non-GAAP measure, is defined by the Company as (1) Adjusted net cash provided by (used in) operating activities from continuing operations, less (2) purchases of property and equipment from continuing operations.
Adjusted net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, a non-GAAP measure, is defined by the Company as cash provided by (used in) operating activities prior to (1) payments for restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs and litigation costs and settlement, and (2) net cash provided by (used in) operating activities from discontinued operations.

The Company believes the foregoing non-GAAP measures are useful to investors and analysts because they present additional information on the Company’s financial performance. Investors, analysts, Company management and the Company’s Board of Directors utilize these non-GAAP measures, in addition to GAAP measures, to track the Company’s financial and operating performance and compare the Company’s performance to its peer companies, which use similar non-GAAP financial measures in their presentations and earnings releases. The Human Resources Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors also uses certain of these measures to evaluate management’s performance for the purpose of determining incentive compensation. Additional information regarding the purpose and utility of specific non-GAAP measures used in this release is set forth below.

The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful measure, in part, because certain investors and analysts use both historical and projected Adjusted EBITDA, in addition to other GAAP and non-GAAP measures, as factors in determining the estimated fair value of shares of the Company’s common stock. Company management also regularly reviews the Adjusted EBITDA performance for each operating segment. The Company does not use Adjusted EBITDA to measure liquidity, but instead to measure operating performance.

The Company uses, and believes investors use, Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow as supplemental non-GAAP measures to analyze cash flows generated from the Company's operations. The Company believes these measures are useful to investors in evaluating its ability to fund distributions paid to noncontrolling interests or for acquisitions, purchasing equity interests in joint ventures or repaying debt.

These non-GAAP measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Because these measures exclude many items that are included in the Company's financial statements, they do not provide a complete measure of the Company's operating performance. For example, the Company's definitions of Free Cash Flow and Adjusted Free Cash Flow do not include other important uses of cash including (1) cash used to purchase businesses or joint venture interests, or (2) any items that are classified as Cash Flows From Financing Activities on the Company's Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows, including items such as (i) cash used to repay borrowings, (ii) distributions paid to noncontrolling interests, or (iii) payments under the Put/Call Agreement for USPI redeemable noncontrolling interest, which are recorded on the Statement of Cash Flows as the purchase of noncontrolling interest. Accordingly, investors are encouraged to use GAAP measures when evaluating the Company's financial performance.
