Revenue growth was driven by volume and pricing growth in the inpatient rehabilitation segment and volume growth in the home health and hospice segment.

Income from continuing operations attributable to Encompass Health per diluted share for the third quarter of 2019 compared to the third quarter of 2018 reflected an increase in revenue and a gain on the consolidation of Yuma Rehabilitation Hospital offset by increases in depreciation and amortization, interest, and stock-based compensation. Effective July 1, 2019, the Company’s joint venture hospital in Yuma, Arizona changed from the equity method of accounting to a consolidated entity, resulting in an approximate $19 million, or $0.14 per share, gain on the remeasurement of the Company’s previously held equity interest to fair value.

The decrease in cash flows provided by operating activities and adjusted free cash flow for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 resulted primarily from increased working capital.

  • Revenue – Revenue growth resulted from volume growth and an increase in net patient revenue per discharge. New-store discharge growth resulted from joint ventures in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina (September 2018), Winston-Salem, North Carolina (October 2018), Lubbock, Texas (May 2019), and Boise, Idaho (July 2019), and a wholly owned hospital in Katy, Texas (September 2019). New-store growth also resulted from a joint venture hospital in Yuma, Arizona changing from the equity method of accounting to a consolidated entity effective July 1, 2019. Same-store discharge growth in the third quarter of 2019 was negatively impacted by approximately 20 basis points due to the ongoing effects of Hurricane Michael on operations in the Panama City, Florida market. Growth in net patient revenue per discharge primarily resulted from increases in reimbursement rates. Revenue reserves related to bad debt as a percent of revenue increased 20 basis points to 1.5% primarily due to Targeted Probe and Educate reviews at certain hospitals.

    Other revenue in the third quarter of 2018 included $4.5 million of business interruption insurance recoveries related to the 2017 hurricanes.

  • Adjusted EBITDA – The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA primarily resulted from higher salaries and benefits expense, as well as the inclusion of $4.5 million of business interruption insurance recoveries related to the 2017 hurricanes in the third quarter of 2018. Salaries and benefits increased as a percent of revenue primarily due to the ramp up of new stores and approximately $2 million of training costs associated with the transition to the CARE Tool payment system.

  • Revenue – Revenue growth resulted from volume growth. Volume growth included the impact of the acquisition of Alacare on July 1, 2019. Revenue per episode decreased due primarily to the patient mix of the former Alacare locations.

    Hospice revenue increased primarily due to the acquisition of Alacare and same-store admissions growth of 5.8%.

  • Adjusted EBITDA – Growth in Adjusted EBITDA primarily resulted from revenue growth and improvements in caregiver optimization and productivity in home health partially offset by expenses related to the integration of Alacare.

  • General and administrative expenses decreased as a percent of consolidated revenue primarily due to expenses associated with the Company’s rebranding and name change in 2018 and operating leverage resulting from revenue growth. During the third quarter of 2019, the Company invested $0.3 million in its rebranding and name change, as compared to $1.9 million in the third quarter of 2018, all of which was included in general and administrative expenses.

Balance sheet

During the third quarter of 2019, the Company issued $500 million of 4.5% Senior Notes due 2028 and $500 million of 4.75% Senior Notes due 2030. The proceeds from this issuance were used to fund the purchase of the home health rollover shares and exercise of stock appreciation rights in the third quarter of 2019, fund a call of $400 million of 5.75% Senior Notes due 2024 (will close on November 1, 2019), and repay borrowings under the Company’s revolving credit facility.

The Company’s leverage ratio at the end of the third quarter of 2019 was 3.6x. After giving effect to the pending redemption of $400 million of 5.75% Senior Notes on November 1, 2019, the Company’s leverage ratio at the end of the third quarter would have been 3.2x.

"The issuance of $1 billion in new senior notes on very attractive terms allowed us to satisfy our funding needs, extend the duration of our debt capital and enhance our liquidity," said Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of Encompass Health Doug Coltharp. "Our balance sheet is well positioned to fund our growth initiatives and operating strategies."

Shareholder and other distributions

During the third quarter of 2019, the Company repurchased 35,364 shares of its common stock for approximately $2 million. Year-to-date common stock repurchases for 2019 totaled 776,334 shares for approximately $46 million at an average price of $59.10 per share. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had approximately $204 million remaining under its existing stock repurchase authorization.

In the third quarter of 2019, the Company paid a quarterly cash dividend of $0.27 per share on its common stock and declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.28 per share that was paid in October 2019.

In July 2019, the Company received notice of exercise from holders of Home Health Holdings for the vested portion of their rollover shares and stock appreciation rights, which resulted in cash distributions of approximately $218 million in the third quarter of 2019.

2019 guidance

Based on its results for the first nine months of 2019 and its current expectations for the remainder of 2019, the Company’s full-year guidance for 2019 is unchanged.

Other information

The information in this press release is summarized and should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2019 (the "September 2019 Form 10‑Q"), when filed, as well as the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on October 28, 2019 (the "Q3 Earnings Form 8‑K"), to which this press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1. In addition, the Company will post supplemental information today on its website at http://investor.encompasshealth.com for reference during its October 29, 2019 earnings call.

The financial data contained in the press release and supplemental information include non-GAAP financial measures, including the Company’s adjusted earnings per share, leverage ratio, Adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted free cash flow. Reconciliations to their most comparable GAAP measure, except with regard to non-GAAP guidance, are included below, in the supplemental information, or in the Q3 Earnings Form 8-K. Readers are encouraged to review the "Note Regarding Presentation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" included in the Q3 Earnings Form 8-K which provides further explanation and disclosure regarding the Company’s use of these non-GAAP financial measures.

Excluding net operating revenues, the Company does not provide guidance on a GAAP basis because it is unable to predict, with reasonable certainty, the future impact of items that are deemed to be outside the control of the Company or otherwise non-indicative of its ongoing operating performance. Such items include government, class action, and related settlements; professional fees—accounting, tax, and legal; mark-to-market adjustments for stock appreciation rights; gains or losses related to hedging and equity instruments; loss on early extinguishment of debt; adjustments to its income tax provision (such as valuation allowance adjustments and settlements of income tax claims); items related to corporate and facility restructurings; and certain other items the Company believes to be non-indicative of its ongoing operating performance. These items cannot be reasonably predicted and will depend on several factors, including industry and market conditions, and could be material to the Company’s results computed in accordance with GAAP.

However, the following reasonably estimable GAAP measures for 2019 would be included in a reconciliation for Adjusted EBITDA if the other reconciling GAAP measures could be reasonably predicted:

  • Interest expense and amortization of debt discounts and fees – estimate of $155 million to $165 million
  • Amortization of debt-related items – approximately $4 million

The Q3 Earnings Form 8-K and, when filed, the September 2019 Form 10-Q can be found on the Company’s website at http://investor.encompasshealth.com and the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov.

In addition, Encompass Health, through its senior management, may from time to time make forward-looking public statements concerning the matters described herein. All such estimates, projections, and forward-looking information speak only as of the date hereof, and Encompass Health undertakes no duty to publicly update or revise such forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise. Such forward-looking statements are necessarily estimates based upon current information, involve a number of risks and uncertainties, and relate to, among other things, future events, Encompass Health’s plan to repurchase its debt or equity securities, dividend strategies, effective income tax rates, its business strategy, its financial plans, its future financial performance, its projected business results or model, its ability to return value to shareholders, its projected capital expenditures, its leverage ratio, its acquisition opportunities, and the impact of future legislation or regulation. Actual events or results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of a variety of factors. While it is impossible to identify all such factors, factors which could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those estimated by Encompass Health include, but are not limited to, the price of Encompass Health’s common stock as it affects the Company’s willingness and ability to repurchase shares and the financial and accounting effects of any repurchases; any adverse outcome of various lawsuits, claims, and legal or regulatory proceedings involving Encompass Health, including any matters related to yet undiscovered issues, if any, in acquired operations; Encompass Health’s ability to attract and retain key management personnel; any adverse effects on Encompass Health’s stock price resulting from the integration of acquired operations; potential disruptions, breaches, or other incidents affecting the proper operation, availability, or security of Encompass Health’s or its vendors’ information systems, including unauthorized access to or theft of patient, business associate, or other sensitive information or inability to provide patient care because of system unavailability as well as unforeseen issues, if any, related to integration of acquired systems; the ability to successfully integrate acquired operations, including realization of anticipated tax benefits, revenues, and cost savings, minimizing the negative impact on margins arising from the changes in staffing and other operating practices, and avoidance of unforeseen exposure to liabilities; Encompass Health’s ability to successfully complete and integrate de novo developments, acquisitions, investments, and joint ventures consistent with its growth strategy; increases in Medicare audit activity, including increased use of sampling and extrapolation, resulting in additional unpaid reimbursement claims and an increase in the backlog of appealed claims denials; changes, delays in (including in connection with resolution of Medicare payment reviews or appeals), or suspension of reimbursement for Encompass Health’s services by governmental or private payors; changes in the regulation of the healthcare industry at either or both of the federal and state levels, including as part of national healthcare reform and deficit reduction (such as the patient driven groupings model and other payment system reforms); competitive pressures in the healthcare industry and Encompass Health’s response thereto; Encompass Health’s ability to obtain and retain favorable arrangements with third-party payors; Encompass Health’s ability to control costs, particularly labor and employee benefit costs, including group medical expenses; adverse effects resulting from coverage determinations made by Medicare Administrative Contractors regarding its Medicare reimbursement claims and lengthening delays in Encompass Health’s ability to recover improperly denied claims through the administrative appeals process on a timely basis; Encompass Health’s ability to adapt to changes in the healthcare delivery system, including value-based purchasing and involvement in coordinated care initiatives or programs that may arise with its referral sources; Encompass Health’s ability to attract and retain nurses, therapists, and other healthcare professionals in a highly competitive environment with often severe staffing shortages and the impact on Encompass Health’s labor expenses from potential union activity and staffing shortages; general conditions in the economy and capital markets, including any instability or uncertainty related to armed conflict or an act of terrorism, governmental impasse over approval of the United States federal budget, an increase in the debt ceiling, or an international sovereign debt crisis; the increase in the costs of defending and insuring against alleged professional liability claims and Encompass Health’s ability to predict the estimated costs related to such claims; and other factors which may be identified from time to time in Encompass Health’s SEC filings and other public announcements, including Encompass Health’s Form 10K for the year ended December 31, 2018 and Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2019, June 30, 2019, and September 30, 2019, when filed.
