Hanger Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results

11/08/2021

Hanger, Inc. (NYSE: HNGR), a leading provider of orthotic and prosthetic (O&P) patient care services and solutions, today announced its financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2021.

Financial Highlights

  • Net revenue was $289.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $256.6 million for the same period in 2020, reflecting growth of 12.9 percent.
  • Net income was $21.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $6.8 million for the same period in 2020. Income from operations was $25.7 million for the quarter compared to $13.1 million for the same period in 2020. Third quarter 2020 GAAP income from operations and net income benefited from approximately $16 million related to temporary labor and operating cost reductions taken during that period in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $37.2 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $27.9 million for the same period in 2020, reflecting growth of $9.3 million or 33.5 percent. Adjusted EBITDA results for the third quarter of 2020 benefited in part, from the temporary cost reductions discussed above.
  • GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.54 per share for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $0.18 per share for the same period in 2020. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.39 for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $0.20 for the same period in 2020.
  • Hanger revised its annual financial outlook for net revenue and Adjusted EBITDA primarily due to the continuing impact of the COVID pandemic on patient volumes. The Company anticipates net revenue in the range of $1.115 billion to $1.140 billion and Adjusted EBITDA in a range between $124 million and $128 million.

Vinit Asar, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hanger, Inc., stated, "Hanger's third quarter net revenue grew 12.9 percent, reflecting a continued recovery in our Patient Care business complemented by acquisitions of independent O&P clinics across the United States."

Mr. Asar added, "While we continue to demonstrate favorable recovery from the peak COVID periods of 2020, and were operating at 99 percent of 2019 levels in the quarter, our third quarter revenue levels were affected by the Delta variant and fell short of our original expectations. Although we believe that market conditions and Hanger's performance will continue to strengthen as COVID subsides in 2022, we are adjusting our outlook for the remainder of the current year to reflect the lingering impact of the pandemic on our business."

Complete reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures are provided in the tables located at the end of this earnings release.

Segment Results for Three Months Ended September 30, 2021

Patient Care Segment

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, Patient Care net revenue was $244.4 million, an increase of $31.7 million, or 14.9 percent, compared to the same period in 2020. For the three month period, acquisitions of O&P clinics that were consummated in 2020 and 2021 contributed $9.7 million of incremental revenue.

Net same clinic revenue on a day-adjusted basis grew 10.7 percent during the third quarter of 2021 compared to the same quarter in the prior year period. Patient Care results benefited from the continued improvement in patient volumes from the decreased levels of demand experienced due to the COVID pandemic during 2020. In the third quarter of 2021, Hanger's Patient Care net revenue on a same-clinic basis totaled approximately 99 percent of the level experienced in the third quarter of 2019, which reflected an improvement from the 96 percent level reported in the second quarter of 2021.

Excluding the effect of acquisitions, net revenue from prosthetics grew 10.5 percent and net revenue from orthotics grew 11.0 percent, each compared to the third quarter of 2020. Prosthetics comprised 55 percent of Patient Care segment net revenue for the quarter compared to 56 percent in the same period of 2020.

Income from operations in the Patient Care segment was $41.3 million during the third quarter of 2021, an increase of $9.1 million compared to the $32.2 million reported in the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA for the segment was $47.2 million, which reflected an $8.0 million increase compared to the third quarter of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the segment totaled 19.3 percent compared to 18.4 percent during the third quarter of 2020. Segment income from operations and Adjusted EBITDA in the prior year period benefited from temporary labor and other cost reductions.

Products & Services Segment

For the three months ended September 30, 2021, Products & Services net revenue totaled $45.5 million, reflecting growth of 3.4 percent compared with the same period in 2020. Revenue from the distribution of O&P componentry totaled $34.7 million, reflecting growth of $1.9 million, or 5.9 percent. Therapeutic solutions revenue in the third quarter totaled $10.8 million, a decline of $0.4 million, or 4.0 percent.

Income from operations for the Products & Services segment was $4.6 million in the third quarter of 2021 compared to $5.1 million in the same period of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA for the segment totaled $6.8 million for the third quarter of 2021, a $1.3 million decline compared with the same period of 2020. Adjusted EBITDA margin in the segment totaled 15.0 percent compared to 18.6 percent during the third quarter of 2020. Products & Services segment income from operations, Adjusted EBITDA and margin were impacted by the restoration of temporary labor and other cost reductions that benefited results for the third quarter of 2020.

Corporate & Other

Expenses associated with corporate and other activities decreased by $4.0 million to $20.2 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. Excluding the effect of depreciation and amortization, and acquisition-related expense, the net cost of corporate and other activities decreased by $2.7 million to $16.8 million in the third quarter of 2021.

Net Income; Interest Expense

Interest expense totaled $7.3 million for the three month period ended September 30, 2021, a decrease of $0.7 million from the prior year period.

For the three month period ended September 30, 2021, net income was $21.1 million compared with $6.8 million for the same period in 2020. GAAP diluted income per share was $0.54 compared to $0.18 per share in 2020. Adjusted diluted income per share was $0.39 for the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to $0.20 per share for the same period in 2020.

Financial Highlights for the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2021

  • For the period, net revenue was $808.1 million, compared to $723.8 million in 2020, reflecting a net revenue increase of 11.6 percent. Acquisitions of O&P clinics consummated in 2020 and 2021 contributed $24.7 million of incremental revenue for the nine month period.
  • Patient Care net revenue totaled $676.8 million, reflecting growth of $78.1 million, or 13.0 percent. Year-to-date same clinic day-adjusted net revenue per day grew 10.2 percent. For the period, Hanger's Patient Care segment net revenue on a day-adjusted same-clinic basis totaled approximately 98 percent of the level reported for the equivalent period in 2019.
  • Net revenue from prosthetics, excluding acquisitions, grew 5.5 percent on a day-adjusted basis, while orthotics revenue grew by 16.3 percent, also on a net day-adjusted basis and excluding acquisitions. For the year-to date, prosthetics constituted 54 percent of Patient Care segment net revenue.
  • Products & Services segment net revenue totaled $131.3 million, an increase of $6.2 million, or 4.9 percent growth, driven by an increase of $7.7 million in revenue from distribution services and a $1.5 million decline in revenue from therapeutic solutions.
  • GAAP net income was $27.9 million compared to $22.1 million in 2020. Hanger's GAAP results for the first nine months of 2020 included a benefit of $20.6 million to other operating costs related to the Company's receipt of CARES Act healthcare provider grants as compared to $0.7 million in the 2021 period. These grants were received under the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund, also referred to as The Provider Relief Fund, established by the CARES Act and are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA.
  • Adjusted EBITDA totaled $81.7 million, an increase of $12.1 million as compared to the $69.7 million reported in 2020. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA for the nine month period resulted from improvement in net revenue partially offset by the restoration of temporary cost reductions taken during the second and third quarters of 2020.
  • GAAP diluted earnings per share was $0.71, compared to $0.57 per share in 2020. Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $0.58 for the first nine months of 2021, compared to $0.27 for the same period in 2020.

Net Cash Provided by Operating Activities; Liquidity

Cash flows provided by operating activities for the three months ending September 30, 2021 were $12.5 million compared to cash flows provided by operating activities of $13.9 million for the same period in 2020. The Company's days sales outstanding were 42 days as of September 30, 2021, which reflected a one day improvement as compared to the same period in 2020.

On September 30, 2021, the Company had liquidity of $170.5 million, comprised of $75.6 million in cash and cash equivalents, and $94.9 million in available borrowing capacity under its revolving credit facility. This compares to total liquidity of $171.1 million on June 30, 2021.

Outlook for the Remainder of 2021

The Company's outlook for 2021, originally provided on March 1, 2021, assumed a continued sequential improvement in the third and fourth quarters of the orthotics and prosthetics business environment related to the continued cessation of the effects of COVID-19 on patient volumes. While Hanger's financial results for the third quarter and the first nine-months of 2021 reflect continued progress with regard to a return to more normal patient volumes, results through the current period remain below pre-pandemic levels.

As a result, the Company is adjusting its 2021 financial outlook as originally provided on March 1, 2021. Hanger now anticipates net revenue for the year in a range between $1.115 billion and $1.140 billion, and Adjusted EBITDA in a range between $124 million and $128 million. This outlook compares with prior ranges of $1.145 billion and $1.175 billion for net revenue and $130 million and $135 million for Adjusted EBITDA. The Company's revised outlook for 2021 includes approximately $42 million in revenue relating to the full year contribution of acquisitions consummated in 2020 and through September 30, 2021. The Company anticipates a return to normalized growth in 2022, as the COVID-19 pandemic subsides and market conditions improve.

Adjusted EBITDA in this outlook is provided on a non-GAAP basis only because a reconciliation to the most comparable GAAP financial measure, net income, is not available without unreasonable effort due to the unpredictable nature of reconciling items that render such a reconciliation not meaningful for investors.

Segment Information: Revenue, EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA
(Unaudited - in thousands)

EBITDA is defined as operating income before depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income before certain charges, third-party professional fees in excess of normal amounts incurred in connection with our financial statement remediation, expenses associated with equity-based compensation, severance expenses, certain expenses incurred in connection with our acquisitions, proceeds received from grants under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economy Security Act ("CARES Act") and certain other charges.

We use EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA as measures to assess the relative level of our indebtedness and our compliance with certain debt covenants which are based on these measures. Additionally, we utilize these measures to assess our operating and financial performance. We believe that these measures enhance a user’s understanding of normal operating income excluding certain charges, depreciation and amortization.

Neither EBITDA or Adjusted EBITDA are measures of financial performance computed in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) and should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operations, or other statement of operations or cash flow data prepared in conformity with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. In addition, the calculation of EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA is susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations, and the amounts presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA may not be indicative of historical operating results, and we do not intend these measures to be predictive of future results of operations.

Table 5
Hanger, Inc.
Reconciliation of Net Income and Earnings Per Share to
Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Earnings Per Share
(Unaudited - in thousands, except share and per share amounts)

Earnings Per Share (or “EPS”) is defined as net income divided by our basic or diluted common shares during the applicable period. Adjusted EPS is defined as EPS adjusted for certain equity-based compensation charges, third-party professional fees in excess of normal amounts incurred in connection with our financial statement remediation, severance expenses, certain expenses incurred in connection with our acquisitions, proceeds received from grants under the CARES Act, and certain other charges.

We utilize Adjusted EPS to assess our operating and financial performance. We believe that this measure enhances a user’s understanding of normal operating results excluding certain charges.

Adjusted EPS is not a measure of financial performance computed in accordance with GAAP and should not be considered in isolation nor as a substitute for operating income, net income, cash flows from operations, or other statement of operations or cash flow data prepared in conformity with GAAP, or as a measure of profitability or liquidity. In addition, the calculation of Adjusted EPS is susceptible to varying interpretations and calculations, and the amounts presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Adjusted EPS may not be indicative of historical operating results, and we do not intend these measures to be predictive of future results of operations.
