Chindex International, Inc. Reports Financial Results for Second Quarter and First Half of 2013 -Reiterates FY13 Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA Forecast- PR Newswire BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 7, 2013 BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chindex International, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHDX), an American health care company providing health care services in China through the operations of United Family Healthcare ("UFH"), a network of private primary care hospitals and affiliated ambulatory clinics, today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2013 ended June 30, 2013. Second Quarter 2013 Financial Highlights oRevenue from healthcare services increased 18% to $46.0 million from $39.1 million in the prior year period. oAdjusted EBITDA was $7.3 million, compared to $7.7 million in the prior year period. oDevelopment, pre-opening and start-up expense was $3.0 million, compared to $2.5 million in the prior year period. oIncome from operations decreased 44% to $1.9 million from $3.4 million in the prior year period. oNet loss was $122,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.8 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the prior year period. oIncreased operating expenses were primarily the result of recently opened expansions, development of new facilities and network infrastructure projects, all drivers oflong-term, sustainable growth. Roberta Lipson, President and CEO of Chindex, commented, "Second quarter financial performance reflects continued revenue growth driven by steady inpatient and outpatient demand across our growing healthcare network. Since June, we have opened two new facilities in our two largest metropolitan markets - the Beijing United Family Rehabilitation Hospital and United Family Quankou Clinic in Shanghai. The opening of these two facilities was a major endeavor and our operating results for the quarter reflect our investments in personnel and infrastructure to support our expanding UFH network. We are now experiencing increased revenue contribution associated with greater inpatient traffic levels as well as from our new, highly specialized services, which will benefit our performance in the second half of the year and beyond." "Our main focus in the remainder of 2013 will be the ongoing execution of our expansion and ramp-up of both our new facilities and specialized service lines. China's healthcare sector is heavily regulated by the government. In recent years, we have consistently met our growth and expansion targets and established first-mover advantages in multiple healthcare service areas. These accomplishments prove our ability to navigate China's complex regulatory environment and demonstrate our unique ability to capitalize on favorable domestic policies for premium private healthcare services in China. The progress of our facility and overall resource expansion we have made year to date provides a solid foundation to accelerate revenue and profitability growth in the second half of the year. We reiterate comfort with our ability to deliver revenue growth at a rate of mid to high-twenties and adjusted EBITDA growth in the mid to high teens for the full year of 2013." Second Quarter 2013 Financial Results Second quarter 2013 revenue from healthcare services increased 18% to $46.0 million from $39.1 million in the prior year period. These results reflect continued growth of inpatient and outpatient volume across the United Family Healthcare network as well as increasing contributions from the expansion of the Company's flagship hospital in Beijing. Outpatient services contributed 58% and inpatient services contributed 42% of revenue, compared with 59% and 41%, respectively, in the prior year period. By service line, surgical services contributed 22.8%, OB/GYN contributed 13.7%, pediatrics contributed 7.3%, ancillary services contributed 31%, internal medicine contributed 4%, emergency room contributed 4.1%, dental contributed 3.6%, family medicine 1.5% and other clinical service lines contributed 12% of revenue. Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2013 increased 23% to $44.1 million from $35.8 million in the prior year period. These costs were primarily driven by the Company's recently opened expansions as well as development of new facilities and network infrastructure projects. Salaries, wages and benefits in the second quarter of 2013 increased 26% to $26.8 million from $21.3 million in the prior year period, reflecting a 20.5% increase in headcount to support revenue growth and development activities, including newly recruited staff for the Company's Beijing United Family Rehabilitation Hospital and United Family Quankou Clinic in Shanghai. Development, pre- and post-opening and start-up expenses were $3.0 million this quarter, compared to $2.5 million for the prior year period. These expenses were driven by development projects across all markets, including particularly the Beijing United Family Rehabilitation Hospital and the ramp-up of Tianjin United Family Hospital. Operating expenses also included certain non-cash expenses including $1,444,000 of stock-based compensation expense compared to $987,000 for the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter of 2013 was approximately $7.3 million, compared to $7.7 million in the prior year period. The Adjusted EBITDA results reflect the delayed opening of Beijing United Family Rehabilitation Hospital and expanded investment in resources for development of network infrastructure supporting current operations in accordance with the 2013 strategic plan. Income from operations decreased by 44% to $1.9 million from $3.4 million in the prior year period. The Company recorded a $1.7 million provision for taxes in the second quarter of 2013, relatively stable in terms of dollar amount as compared to the amount in the prior year period, but reflecting a higher effective tax rate. As in past quarters, the current period provision continued to be heavily impacted by losses in development and start-up entities for which the Company cannot currently recognize tax benefits. Net loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $122,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.8 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the prior year period. For the second quarter of 2013, weighted average diluted shares outstanding were 16.6 million. As of June 30, 2013, the Company had $33.8 million in unrestricted cash, cash equivalents and investments. First Half 2013 Financial Results During the first half of 2013, revenue from healthcare services increased 22% to $87.5 million from $71.6 million in the prior year period, reflecting growing inpatient and outpatient volume across the United Family Healthcare network. Outpatient services contributed 58% of revenue and inpatient services contributed 42% of revenue in the first half of 2013 compared with 60% and 40%, respectively, for the first half of 2012. By service line, surgical services contributed 21.9%, OB/GYN contributed 14.7%, pediatrics contributed 7.9%, ancillary services contributed 31.4%, internal medicine contributed 4%, emergency room contributed 4%, dental contributed 3.5%, family medicine 1.4% and other services contributed 11.2% of revenue. Operating expenses for the first half of 2013 increased 23% to $83.1 million from $67.6 million in the prior year period. Development, pre-opening and start up expenses decreased to $5.6 million from $5.7 million in the prior year period primarily as a result of the delayed opening of Beijing United Family Rehabilitation Hospital. Operating expenses also included certain non-cash expenses including $2.2 million of non-cash stock compensation expense compared to $1.6 million for the prior year. Income from operations increased 12% to $4.5 million compared to income from operations of $4.0 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA was approximately $14.7 million compared to $13.2 million in the prior year period reflecting expanded investment in resources for development of network infrastructure supporting current operations in accordance with the 2013 strategic plan. Provision for taxes was $3.6 million, compared to $3.0 million in the prior year period. Net loss was $184,000, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.3 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the first half of 2012. For the first half of 2013 ended June 30, 2013, weighted average diluted shares outstanding were 16.6 million. Chindex Medical Limited Following the official closing of the acquisition of Alma Lasers, Inc. on May 27, 2013, Chindex Medical Limited (CML), a joint venture between Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical (Group) Co., Ltd. ("Fosun Pharma") and Chindex International, began recognizing the operating results of Alma Lasers in the results of CML. In the second quarter of 2013, Chindex International recognized a loss of $387,000 for its equity interest in CML. For the first half of 2013, the Company recognized a loss of $1.29 million for its equity interest in CML. The operating results of CML in 2013 have thus far been significantly impacted by volatility in the capital medical equipment markets in China. The acquisition of Alma Lasers could mitigate such volatility in future periods. Non-GAAP Measures The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA to better illustrate ongoing operational results. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) before interest expense, interest and other income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and also excludes development, pre-opening and start-up expenses related to new and pending hospitals and clinics, equity in earnings (loss) income of unconsolidated affiliate, non-recurring charges for Chindex Medical Limited (CML) joint venture formation. The Company anticipates recurring development, pre-opening and start-up expense and notes that such expense is a basic element of the long term growth plan. Management believes that providing an Adjusted EBITDA analysis to investors is a helpful metric to better illustrate the Company's operations, including development plans, and changes in presentation from historical periods. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA for business planning and other purposes. Other companies may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, and therefore Chindex's Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income (loss), cash flows from operating activities and other measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant and necessary components to the operations of the Company's business, and, therefore, Adjusted EBITDA should only be used as a supplemental measure of operating performance.
