Overview

Net service revenues were $276.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, an 11.9% increase compared with $247.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2022. Net income was $19.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, compared with $14.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2022, while net income per diluted share was $1.20 compared with $0.91 for the same period a year ago. Adjusted EBITDA increased 21.3% to $34.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 from $28.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2022. Adjusted net income was $21.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared with $18.1 million for the prior-year period, while adjusted net income per diluted share was $1.32 compared with $1.11 for the fourth quarter of 2022. Adjusted net income per diluted share for the fourth quarter of 2023 excludes the positive impact of retroactive collective bargaining negotiations of $(0.07), acquisition expenses of $0.07 and stock-based compensation expense of $0.12 (See the end of press release for a reconciliation of all non-GAAP and GAAP financial measures.)

For 2023, net service revenues increased 11.3% to $1.06 billion from $951.1 million for the prior-year period. Net income was $62.5 million for 2023 compared with $46.0 million for 2022, and net income per diluted share was $3.83 compared with $2.84 per diluted share. Adjusted EBITDA increased 19.3% to $121.0 million for 2023 from $101.5 million for 2022. Adjusted net income was $74.8 million for 2023 compared with $60.3 million for 2022, while adjusted net income per diluted share was $4.58 compared with $3.73 for the prior-year period.

Commenting on the results, Dirk Allison, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Our fourth quarter financial and operating performance marked a strong finish to another record year for Addus. Revenue was up 11.9% and adjusted EBITDA was 21.3% higher for the fourth quarter of 2023 compared with the same period last year. Propelled by the strong momentum in our business throughout 2023, we surpassed $1.0 billion in annual revenues for the first time.

“We continued to benefit from robust demand for home-based care, especially for our personal care services, which accounted for 74.0% of our revenues. We were pleased with our 11.2% organic revenue growth on a same store basis for the quarter, and our annual growth rate of 12.1% was a record for our personal care services. This impressive revenue growth reflects higher volumes, as well as continued rate support for our services.

“Our fourth quarter results included a full three months of operations from Tennessee Quality Care, a provider of home health, hospice, and private duty nursing services, which we acquired August 1, 2023. These acquired operations allowed us to expand our coverage capabilities to all three levels of home-based care in Tennessee, and we are excited about the opportunities to serve more patients in this strategically important market. We will continue to identify additional markets where we can enhance our personal care presence and add clinical care operations, especially where we see potential for growth in value-based contracting models, as payors have expressed interest in both the cost benefits and high quality of our home-based care services.

“Hospice services accounted for 19.8% of revenue for the fourth quarter and included the benefit of a 3.1% rate increase that was effective on October 1, 2023. Hospice revenues were up 3.5% over the fourth quarter of 2022 on a same-store basis, and we were pleased to see further improvement in average daily census and length of stay compared with the same period last year,” said Allison.

Cash and Liquidity

As of December 31, 2023, the Company had cash of $64.8 million and bank debt of $126.4 million, with capacity and availability under its revolving credit facility of $470.0 million and $335.6 million, respectively. Net cash provided by operating activities was $30.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, and $112.2 million for the full year 2023, inclusive of a net $7.6 million in ARPA funds utilization.

Allison added, “In 2023 we generated strong cash flow from operations, bolstered by higher revenues and consistent payments from our various payors. Combined with our disciplined balance sheet management, we were able to fully fund our acquisitions during 2023 and still lower our revolver balance by $8.5 million from the end of the prior year. Importantly, we have the financial flexibility to continue to invest in our business and pursue our strategic growth initiatives, including acquisitions and other potential development opportunities. We are optimistic that we will see attractive acquisition opportunities in 2024 as market conditions continue to improve.

“As we look to 2024, we will continue to build on our momentum and capitalize on the growing demand for our home-based care. Addus offers a strong value proposition with high-quality and cost-effective care for patients in the preferred home setting. We are fortunate to have a dedicated team of caregivers across our markets who advance our mission to provide outstanding care and support for increasing numbers of patients and families. We continue to look for ways to improve the way we deliver care with enhanced training and investments in applications that support our caregivers with more efficient scheduling and overall service. With this capable team representing Addus, we are confident in our ability to extend our market reach in 2024 and deliver greater value to our shareholders.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The information provided in this release includes adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income per diluted share and adjusted net service revenue, which are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company defines adjusted net income as net income before acquisition expenses, stock-based compensation expenses, restructure and other non-recurring costs, gain or loss on the sale of assets, retroactive rate increases from New York, and the retroactive impact from collective bargaining negotiations. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, other non-operating income, taxes, depreciation, amortization, acquisition expense, stock-based compensation expense, restructure and other non-recurring costs, gain or loss on the sale of assets, retroactive rate increases from New York, and the retroactive impact from collective bargaining negotiations. The Company defines adjusted net income per diluted share as net income per share, adjusted for acquisition expenses, stock-based compensation expense, restructure and other non-recurring costs, gain or loss on the sale of assets, retroactive rate increases from New York, and the retroactive impact from collective bargaining negotiations. The Company defines adjusted net service revenues as revenue adjusted for the closure of certain sites. The Company has provided, in the financial statement tables included in this press release, a reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income, a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income, a reconciliation of adjusted diluted net income per share to net income per share, and a reconciliation of adjusted net service revenues to net service revenues, in each case, the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Management believes that adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted net income per share, and adjusted net service revenues are useful to investors, management and others in evaluating the Company’s operating performance, to provide investors with insight and consistency in the Company’s financial reporting and to present a basis for comparison of the Company’s business operations among periods, and to facilitate comparison with the results of the Company’s peers.
