Great Story on NASDAQ: GTIV

More on http://EmergingGrowth.com

Baby Boomers are getting older, fatter and living longer. As a result just about any segment of the healthcare sector stands to benefit from just this paradigm, let alone the other factors that play into investor confidence in healthcare and that includes home healthcare. There has been an indisputable surge in demand for home healthcare products and services in the past few years and this translates into myriad companies that provide those needed services in the small-cap sector of the market.

Besides boasting an endearing name, Almost Family Inc. (NASDAQ: AFAM) is also a solid contender in the home healthcare industry. Trading at $20.00 per share the company has a market cap of $186.72 million. Over the past year, shares have traded in a range of $16.12 to $26.87 and now at $20.00, are a healthy 25 percent above that low. Looking at the charts, the company has been a strong mover throughout January 2013 which has prompted Zacks to issue a strong buy. The company paid a special dividend at the end of December to shareholders of interest of $2.00. Currently the dividend yield is more endearing than its name; 9.9 percent.

Competitors such as Gentiva Health Services Inc. (NASDAQ: GTIV) and LHC Group Inc. (NASADQ: LHCG) are also worthy of consideration in this segment. They both provide home healthcare and are on upward trends at the moment. The companies have market caps of $318.74 million and $386.94 million respectively. LHC is trading in the range of $21.94 while Gentiva is trading at half that number; $10.41. Gentiva also has the lowest price to earnings ratio in this segment of the healthcare market at 7.64. Shares have been fairly volatile over the past year for Gentiva with a high of $29.21 and a low of $2.81. Current price indicates a strong upward trend of over 240 percent from the 52 week low. In the past year, shares of LHC Group have traded between a low of $12.53 and a high of $22.21. At the current price $21.94, shares are trading at almost 70 percent above the low price.

As stated earlier, this segment is a fast growing, solid portion of the healthcare industry. It is gaining traction with investors and it is almost certain that companies that are small today with nice entry points will not be small or as affordable tomorrow.

Gentiva® Health Services Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2011 Results

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/gentiva-health-services-reports-fourth-quarter-and-full-year-2011-results-138840084.html

ATLANTA, Feb. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gentiva Health Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: GTIV), the largest provider of home health and hospice services in the United States based on revenue, today reported fourth quarter and full-year 2011 results.

Full-year 2011 financial highlights include:

•Total net revenues of $1.8 billion.
•Adjusted income from continuing operations on a diluted share basis of $1.68, excluding the $0.08 impact from debt refinancing charges incurred in the first quarter of 2011.
•Adjusted EBITDA of $199 million.


As previously disclosed, the Company undertook a comprehensive review of its branch structure, support infrastructure and other significant spend areas in the third quarter of 2011 in response to the challenging Medicare reimbursement rate environment the Company is facing. As a result of this assessment, the Company closed 34 locations (25 home health and 9 hospice) and sold 9 home health locations in the fourth quarter of 2011. The financial results of the impacted locations were included in the Company's results from continuing operations. Related to the cost savings and branch reduction initiatives, the Company recorded a pre-tax charge of $12.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 for severance, lease terminations and other items. Subsequent to year-end, the Company entered into agreements to sell 8 additional home health branches and 2 hospice branches as part of its branch assessment.

Fourth quarter 2011 financial highlights include:

¦Total net revenues of $449.2 million, a decrease of 2% compared to $456.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2010. Net revenues included home health episodic revenues of $217.1 million, a decline of 3% compared to $224.6 million in the 2010 fourth quarter. Hospice revenues were $200.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, an increase of 3% compared to $195.2 million in the 2010 fourth quarter. Hospice represented 45% of total net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to 43% in the 2010 fourth quarter.


¦Income from continuing operations attributable to Gentiva shareholders of $3.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, compared to $17.9 million, or $0.59 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2010.


¦Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to Gentiva shareholders of $11.3 million, compared with $20.9 million in the comparable 2010 period. On a diluted per share basis, adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to Gentiva shareholders was $0.37 for the fourth quarter of 2011 compared to income of $0.69 for the fourth quarter of 2010.


¦Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization attributable to continuing operations (Adjusted EBITDA) decreased 26% to $47.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2011 as compared to $63.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2010. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenues was 10.5% in the fourth quarter of 2011 versus 14.0% in the prior-year period.


Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to Gentiva shareholders and Adjusted EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2011 exclude special items relating to i) pre-tax charges for cost savings initiatives of $12.4 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, ii) pre-tax charges for restructuring, legal settlements and acquisition and integration costs of $1.9 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, iii) incremental tax expense on goodwill, intangibles and other long-lived asset impairment of $0.6 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, iv) tax adjustment charge to gain on sale of CareCentrix included in the net earnings of CareCentrix of $1.2 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, v) pre-tax gain on sale of assets of $1.1 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, and vi) tax benefit on legal settlements of $1.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted share. The fourth quarter of 2010 included pre-tax charges for legal settlement, restructuring, and acquisition and integration costs of $5.3 million, or $0.10 per diluted share. See table that follows.

Full-year 2011 financial highlights include:

¦Total net revenues of $1.80 billion, an increase of 27% compared to $1.41 billion for the prior year period. Net revenues included home health episodic revenues of $876.9 million, a decline of 4%, compared to $909.1 million in the comparable 2010 period. Hospice revenues were $786.2 million, compared to $351.5 million in the prior year period.


¦Loss from continuing operations attributable to Gentiva shareholders of $458.8 million, or $15.13 per diluted share, as compared to income from continuing operations of $55.3 million, or $1.81 per diluted share, for the 2010 period.


¦Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to Gentiva shareholders of $49.2 million, compared with $83.6 million in the 2010 period. On a diluted per share basis, adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to Gentiva shareholders was $1.60 for 2011 as compared with $2.74 in the corresponding period of 2010. Excluding the approximately $3.8 million write-off of prepaid financing fees and the costs of terminating the Company's interest rate swap contract associated with the Company's debt refinancing in the first quarter of 2011, adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to Gentiva shareholders was $1.68 on a diluted per share basis.


¦Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization attributable to continuing operations (Adjusted EBITDA) increased 2% to $199.2 million as compared to $196.0 million in the 2010 period. Adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of net revenues was 11.1% versus 13.9% in the prior-year period.


Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to Gentiva shareholders and Adjusted EBITDA for the full year 2011 exclude special items relating to i) pre-tax charges for cost savings initiatives of $13.2 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, ii) pre-tax charges for restructuring, legal settlements and acquisition and integration costs of $35.9 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, iii) pre-tax charges for goodwill, intangibles and other long-lived asset impairment of $643.3 million, or $18.06 per diluted share, iv) gain on sale of CareCentrix included in the net earnings of CareCentrix of $67.1 million, or $2.21 per diluted share, v) pre-tax gain on sale of assets of $1.1 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, and vi) dividend income of $8.6 million, or $0.18 per diluted share. The full year 2010 period included pre-tax legal settlement, restructuring, and acquisition and integration costs of $46.0 million, or $0.93 per diluted share. See table that follows.

For the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company reported net income attributable to Gentiva shareholders of $4.6 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to net income of $15.8 million, or $0.52 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2010. For the full-year 2011, net loss attributable to Gentiva shareholders was $450.5 million, or $14.85 per diluted share, versus net income of $52.2 million, or $1.71 per diluted share, for the full-year 2010. These results included special items discussed above as well as the results from discontinued operations.

Financial Covenants

Given the amount of potential fourth quarter charges related to the cost savings initiatives, on November 28, 2011, the Company entered into an amendment to its senior secured credit agreement to increase its fourth quarter financial covenant flexibility. The amendment modified the definition of Consolidated EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2011 to provide for the add-back of the full costs associated with the Company's cost realignment and operating losses associated with branches scheduled to be closed or sold during the fourth quarter of 2011. Additionally, the amendment permitted the Company to maintain its consolidated leverage ratio at or less than 4.75 to 1.00 through December 31, 2011. As of December 31, 2011, the Company's consolidated leverage ratio was 4.41, below the 4.75 to 1.00 maximum permitted. On a net basis, excluding total cash and equivalents, the consolidated leverage ratio was 3.67 as of December 31, 2011.

Based on the impact of the Medicare reimbursement rate decreases and the reduction in its maximum allowed consolidated leverage ratio during 2012, the Company will likely be out of compliance with its financial covenant ratios in 2012. The Company is currently in discussions with its lead bank on an amendment to provide covenant flexibility to its credit agreement.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Highlights

At December 31, 2011, the Company reported cash and cash equivalents of $164.9 million and outstanding debt of $988.1 million. During the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company paid down $20 million on its term loans. Since closing the Odyssey transaction, the Company has repaid $116.9 million on its revolving credit facility and term loans. Total Company days sales outstanding, or DSO's, was 57 days at December 31, 2011, compared to 50 days at September 30, 2011.

Cash flow was impacted in the fourth quarter by tax payments on asset sales completed in the third quarter of 2011 and cash severance and lease termination payments associated with the Company's cost savings initiatives. For the fourth quarter of 2011, net cash provided by operating activities was a negative $9.2 million, compared to $51.0 million in the prior year period for 2010. Free cash flow was a negative $13.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to $44.1 million in 2010. Free cash flow is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures.

Full-Year 2012 Outlook

On January 10, 2012, the Company provided 2012 net revenue and Adjusted EBITDA guidance to facilitate discussions with its bank group regarding an amendment to its credit agreement. For 2012, Gentiva expects full-year net revenues to be in the range of $1.70 billion to $1.76 billion and Adjusted EBITDA to be $170 million to $190 million. Adjusted EBITDA excludes charges related to cost savings initiatives, restructuring, acquisition, integration activities, the cost of legal settlements, goodwill, intangible asset and other long-lived asset impairment and dividend income.

The Company intends to provide its 2012 outlook for adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to Gentiva shareholders once it completes the amendment of its credit agreement.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The information provided in this press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures as defined under Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rules. In accordance with SEC rules, the Company has provided, in the supplemental information and the footnotes to the tables, a reconciliation of those historical measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

A reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income, the most directly comparable GAAP measure, is not accessible on a forward-looking basis without unreasonable effort due to the inherent difficulties in predicting the costs of restructuring, legal settlements and merger and acquisition activities, the results of discontinued operations and the impact of any future acquisitions or divestitures, which can fluctuate significantly and may have a significant impact on net income.

Notes:

1. The comparability between reporting periods has been affected by the following items:

a. Effective August 17, 2010, the Company completed the acquisition of 100 percent of the equity interest of Odyssey HealthCare, Inc. ("Odyssey"), one of the largest providers of hospice care in the United States, operating approximately 100 Medicare-certified providers serving terminally ill patients and their families in 30 states. In connection with the acquisition, the Company entered into a new $875 million Credit Agreement and issued $325 million of senior unsecured notes.

b. The fourth quarter and fiscal year 2011 included 92 and 365 days of activity, respectively, as compared to 89 and 362 days for the fourth quarter and fiscal year 2010. This difference stems from the Company's adopting a change to a calendar quarter reporting period in 2011 from its prior 13 week reporting periods in 2010.

2. The Company's senior management evaluates performance and allocates resources based on operating contributions of the operating segments, which exclude corporate expenses, depreciation, amortization, and interest expense and other (net), but include revenues and all other costs directly attributable to the specific segment.

3. Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as income from continuing operations before interest expense and other (net of interest income), income taxes, depreciation and amortization and excluding charges relating primarily to cost savings initiatives, restructuring, legal settlements and acquisition and integration activities, dividend income and gain on sale of assets, net of taxes, and goodwill, intangibles and other long-lived asset impairment. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate overall performance and compare current operating results with other companies in the healthcare industry. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for income from continuing operations, net income, operating income or cash flow statement data determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Because Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and is susceptible to varying calculations, it may not be comparable to similarly titled measures in other companies. Adjusted EBITDA presented in the Supplemental Information relates to the Company's continuing operations.

Adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to Gentiva shareholders is defined as income from continuing operations attributable to Gentiva shareholders, excluding tax reserves relating to the OIG settlement, charges relating to cost savings initiatives, restructuring, legal settlements and acquisition and integration activities, dividend income and gain on sale of assets, net of taxes, goodwill, intangibles and other long-lived asset impairment.

4. During the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company sold 9 home health branches and other assets for cash proceeds of approximately $1.9 million.

On October 14, 2011, the Company completed the sale of its homemaker services business in Illinois ("IDOA") pursuant to an asset purchase agreement. Total consideration of approximately $2.4 million consisted of (i) cash proceeds of approximately $2.0 million and (ii) an escrow of $0.4 million to generally satisfy certain post closing obligations.

On September 10, 2011, the Company completed the sale of its Rehab Without Walls® business pursuant to an asset purchase agreement. Total consideration of approximately $9.8 million consisted of (i) cash proceeds of approximately $9.2 million and (ii) an escrow of $0.6 million to generally satisfy certain post closing obligations.

On February 1, 2010, the Company consummated the sale of its respiratory therapy and home medical equipment ("HME") and infusion therapy ("IV") businesses pursuant to an asset purchase agreement.

The financial results of Rehab Without Walls, IDOA and the Company's HME and IV businesses are reported as discontinued operations in the accompanying 2011 and 2010 condensed consolidated financial statements. Net revenues, operating results and the gain on sale of business associated with these operating units for the fourth quarter and fiscal years 2011 and 2010 were as follows (dollars in thousands):

5. Operating contribution and EBITDA included charges relating to cost savings initiatives, restructuring, legal settlements and acquisition and integration activities of $14.3 million and $49.1 million for the fourth quarter and full year 2011, respectively, as compared to $5.3 million and $46.0 million for the corresponding periods of 2010.

For the fourth quarter and full year 2011, the Company recorded (i) charges for cost savings initiatives of $12.4 million and $13.2 million, respectively, (ii) restructuring costs of $0.3 million and $2.0 million, respectively, (iii) legal settlement reserves of $1.0 million and $26.0 million, respectively, associated with a government investigation assumed in the Odyssey acquisition, and (iv) acquisition and integration costs of $0.6 million and $7.9 million, respectively, primarily relating to the acquisition of Odyssey HealthCare, Inc.

For the fourth quarter of 2010, the Company recorded (i) restructuring costs of $2.7 million and (ii) acquisition and integration costs of $2.6 million, primarily relating to the acquisition of Odyssey HealthCare, Inc.

The charges for the full year 2010 included (i) settlement costs and legal fees of $4.2 million related to a three-year old commercial contractual dispute involving the Company's former subsidiary, CareCentrix, (ii) incremental charges of $9.5 million in connection with an agreement in principle, subject to final approvals, between the Company and the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General to resolve the matters which were subject to a 2003 OIG subpoena relating to the Company's cost reports for the 1998 to 2000 periods, (iii) restructuring costs of $6.3 million and (iv) acquisition and integration costs of $26.0 million.

These charges were reflected as follows for segment reporting purposes (dollars in millions):

6. Interest expense and other, net for fiscal 2011 included charges of approximately $3.8 million relating to the write-off of deferred debt issuance costs and costs of terminating the Company's interest rate swaps in connection with the refinancing of the indebtedness outstanding under its senior secured credit agreement.

7. During the third quarter of 2011, the Company performed an impairment test of its goodwill, intangibles and other long-lived assets in response to changes in our business climate, uncertainties around Medicare reimbursement as the federal government works to reduce the federal deficit as well as a significant decline in the price of the Company's common stock during the quarter. The Company's impairment test indicated that goodwill and certain identifiable intangibles assets had carrying values that exceed the estimated fair values of those assets. In addition, the Company finalized its review of alternatives to replacing various field operating systems. As such, the Company recorded non-cash impairment charges of approximately $643.3 million for 2011.

8. Dividend income for fiscal 2011 represents a 12% cumulative preferred dividend received in connection with the sale of the Company's preferred investment in CareCentrix in 2011.

9. The Company's effective tax rate relating to its continuing operations was a tax provision of 40.5% and 39.7% for the fourth quarter and full year 2011, respectively, as compared to a tax provision of 32.2% and 38.5% for the fourth quarter and full year 2010, respectively.

During year 2010, the Company recorded certain non-deductible transaction costs related to the Odyssey acquisition and changes in Odyssey tax reserves subsequent to the acquisition closing date. In addition, the Company recorded additional capital loss and valuation allowance associated with a CareCentrix legal settlement. Excluding the impact of these items, the Company's effective tax rate relating to its continuing operations for the fourth quarter and full year 2010 would have been 32.6% and 38.9%, respectively.

Gentiva Health Services jumps on CareCentrix sale
Gentiva Health Services climbs after company sells it will sell remaining stake in CareCentrix

On Monday August 29, 2011, 2:37 pm EDT

NEW YORK (AP) -- Shares of Gentiva Health Services Inc. jumped Monday after the home health services company said it will sell the rest of its stake in CareCentrix, which manages home health services for health insurers.

THE SPARK: The Atlanta company said late Friday it expects to get $65 million to $70 million for its stake in CareCentrix Holdings Inc. Gentiva will to hold a $25 million note receivable which bears interest at an annual rate of 10 percent. The company said it expects the sale to close in the next few weeks.

THE BIG PICTURE: Gentiva has been gradually selling off its stake in CareCentrix. In August 2008, Gentiva agreed to sell a 69-repcent stake in CareCentrix to a private equity firm for $147 million. It had a 30 percent stake in the company at the start of 2011, which it had reduced to 22 percent as of June 30.

THE ANALYSIS: Raymond James analyst John Ransom said the sale is good news for Gentiva, but in his opinion, the company is still likely to default on its debt covenants in the fourth quarter of 2012. Ransom wrote that it is also not clear what will happen to Medicare payment rates in 2013 and after, so Gentiva's shares will remain under pressure. However, he said the stock has been weak recently compared to its peers.

SHARE ACTION: Gentiva shares rose $1.03, or 14 percent, to $8.32 in afternoon trading. The stock has traded between $6.09 and $29.21 in the last 12 months.
