Alliance HealthCare Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:AIQ) (the “Company” or “Alliance”), a leading national provider of outsourced radiology services through its Alliance HealthCare Radiology (“Alliance Radiology”) Division and radiation therapy services through its Alliance Oncology Division, announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014.

Third Quarter 2014 Highlights

  • Third quarter revenue grew 90 basis points to $110.1 million, after adjustments outlined below.
  • Company generated $35.0 million of Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below).
  • Continued to generate strong cash flow, with $36.4 million reduction in net debt in the last twelve-month period, after adjusting for fees paid in connection with debt refinancing and acquisitions.
  • Alliance Oncology revenue grew by 19% to $23.6 million.
  • Alliance Oncology same-store volume growth was 9.1% for stereotactic radiosurgery and 2.6% for linear accelerator.
  • Alliance Radiology’s MRI same-store volume growth improved to 5.9%.
  • Adjusted Earnings per Share (as defined below) increased 27% to $0.52.
  • Company narrows 2014 guidance ranges principally due to the timing of new Alliance Oncology and Alliance RAD360TM projects.

All percentage growth measures reported above are compared to the same quarter of the prior year.

Third Quarter 2014 Financial Results

“We are pleased with the strong financial results Alliance Oncology continues to deliver-with revenues up 19% over the prior year,” commented Tom Tomlinson, Chief Executive Officer and President of Alliance HealthCare Services. “This growth was driven by same-store volumes increasing 9% for stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and 3% for linear accelerator (Linac) over the prior year period, as well as the positive impact from our new relationship with the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC). In Alliance Radiology, revenues trailed prior year largely due to increased wholesale pricing pressures in diagnostic radiology as hospitals look to save costs and radiology benefit management (RBM) pressures in PET/CT. Despite these headwinds, we continue to see organic growth in MRI same-store volumes, which were up 6% in the third quarter over the same period last year. We attribute this growth to the increased patient flow from new Affordable Care Act (ACA) enrollees and the Medicaid expansion, as well as the efforts of our growing physician marketing field teams.”

Tomlinson continued: “We continue to see traction with our Alliance RAD360 Program in Alliance Radiology, as evidenced by the strong performance in the third quarter at two multi-modality joint venture (JV) sites with a large for-profit hospital system, where overall site volume increased 26% since inception during Q2. Tracking in-line with our planned investments in RAD360, we continue to see a robust pipeline of business development opportunities. Similarly, in Alliance Oncology, we see a very strong pipeline of new business, which we aim to convert in the coming quarters. The new partnership with Charleston Area Medical Center that we announced in September presents clear evidence of our increased momentum. We expect this transaction to close in November, barring any further delay with the necessary regulatory approvals.”

Revenue for the third quarter of 2014 decreased to $110.1 million compared to $113.4 million in the third quarter of 2013. This decrease was primarily due to the sale of our Professional Radiology Services business line in December 2013, and pruning of unprofitable business in our Radiology Division, offset partially by growth in the Alliance Oncology Division as a result of revenue generated from the new partnership with MUSC, and same-store volume growth. After adjusting for the revenue attributable to the Professional Radiology Services business line and the closed Radiology Division business in the third quarter of 2013, which in the aggregate totaled $4.3 million, revenue for that quarter would have been $109.1 million, or a 0.9% growth rate in the third quarter of 2014 compared to the same quarter of 2013.

Alliance’s Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) decreased 9.3% to $35.0 million from $38.6 million in the third quarter of 2013. Of the $3.6 million decrease year over year, approximately $1.1 million was attributed to a one-time gain in connection with the successful renegotiation of an original equipment manufacturer service contract in last year’s third quarter, and another $0.9 million was due to an increase in repair & maintenance costs of our radiology equipment in this year’s third quarter. In addition, we invested approximately $1.2 million in the third quarter of 2014 to build our consultative, sales, marketing, and strategic business development capabilities to support our Alliance RAD360 Program, and expect to invest a total of $5 million for the full year of 2014. These RAD360 costs are included primarily in our selling, general and administrative expenses. Alliance’s net income (loss), computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), totaled $4.0 million in the third quarter of 2014 and ($2.1) million in the third quarter of 2013.

Alliance’s historical income tax rate has been 42%, compared to the GAAP income tax rate of 42.4% in the third quarter of 2014 and 53.6% in the third quarter of 2013.

Net income (loss) on a diluted basis, computed in accordance with GAAP, increased to $0.37 per share in the third quarter of 2014 compared to ($0.19) per share for the same quarter of 2013. Net income (loss) per share on a diluted basis was impacted by ($0.15) in the third quarter of 2014 and ($0.60) in the third quarter of 2013 in the aggregate due to restructuring charges, severance and related costs, transaction costs, legal matter expenses and differences in the GAAP income tax rate from our historical income tax rate.

Cash flows provided by operating activities totaled $26.1 million in the third quarter of 2014 compared to $32.6 million in the third quarter of 2013. In the third quarter of 2014, capital expenditures were $9.9 million compared to $8.7 million in the third quarter of 2013.

Alliance’s net debt, defined as total long-term debt (including current maturities), less cash and cash equivalents, decreased $28.5 million to $466.5 million at September 30, 2014 from $495.0 million at December 31, 2013. Cash and cash equivalents were $38.8 million at September 30, 2014 and $34.7 million at December 31, 2013. The Company’s net debt, as defined above, divided by the last twelve months Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was 3.34x for the twelve month period ended September 30, 2014 compared to 3.36x for the twelve month period ended a year ago. The Company’s total debt, as defined above, divided by the last twelve months Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was 3.62x for the twelve month period ended September 30, 2014 compared to 3.70x for the twelve-month period last year. As a result of the Company’s successful term loan refinancing in 2013, the Company’s net debt was increased by $3.9 million related to fees and expenses incurred and the change in the unamortized discount related to the Company’s debt refinancing activities during 2013.

NON-GAAP MEASURES
(in thousands)

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income Per Share (the “Non-GAAP Measures”) are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or “GAAP.”

Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company’s management, represents net income (loss) before: interest expense, net of interest income; income taxes; depreciation expense; amortization expense; net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests; non-cash share-based compensation; severance and related costs; restructuring charges; fees and expenses related to acquisitions, costs related to debt financing, legal matter expenses, non-cash impairment charges, and other non-cash charges included in other (income) expense, net, which includes non-cash losses on sales of equipment. The components used to reconcile net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA are consistent with our historical presentation of Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted Net Income Per Share, as defined by the Company’s management, represents net income (loss) before: restructuring charges; fees and expenses related to acquisitions; legal matter expenses; and differences in the GAAP income tax rate compared to our historical income tax rate. The components used to reconcile net income (loss) per share to Adjusted Net Income Per Share are consistent with our historical presentation of Adjusted Net Income Per Share.

Management uses the Non-GAAP Measures, and believes they are useful measures for investors, for a variety of reasons. Management regularly communicates the results of its Non-GAAP Measures and management’s interpretation of such results to its board of directors. Management also compares the Company’s results of its Non-GAAP Measures against internal targets as a key factor in determining cash incentive compensation for executives and other employees, largely because management feels that these measures are indicative of how our diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology businesses are performing and are being managed. The diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology industry continues to experience significant consolidation. These activities have led to significant charges to earnings, such as those resulting from acquisition costs, and to significant variations among companies with respect to capital structures and cost of capital (which affect interest expense) and differences in taxation and book depreciation of facilities and equipment (which affect relative depreciation expense), including significant differences in the depreciable lives of similar assets among various companies. In addition, management believes that because of the variety of equity awards used by companies, the varying methodologies for determining non-cash share-based compensation expense among companies and from period to period, and the subjective assumptions involved in that determination, excluding non-cash share-based compensation from Adjusted EBITDA enhances company-to-company comparisons over multiple fiscal periods and enhances the Company’s ability to analyze the performance of its diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology businesses.

In the future, the Company expects that it may incur expenses similar to the excluded items discussed above. Accordingly, the exclusion of these and other similar items in the Company’s non-GAAP presentation should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual. The Non-GAAP Measures have certain limitations as analytical financial measures, which management compensates for by relying on the Company’s GAAP results to evaluate its operating performance and by considering independently the economic effects of the items that are or are not reflected in the Non-GAAP Measures. Management also compensates for these limitations by providing GAAP-based disclosures concerning the excluded items in the Company’s financial disclosures. As a result of these limitations and because the Non-GAAP Measures may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies, however, the Non-GAAP Measures should not be considered as an alternative to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, or as an alternative to any other GAAP measure of operating performance.

ALLIANCE HEALTHCARE SERVICES, INC.
SELECTED STATISTICAL INFORMATION
SAME-STORE VOLUME

The Company utilizes same-store volume growth as a historical statistical measure of the MRI and PET/CT imaging procedure, linear accelerator treatment and SRS case growth at its customers in a specified period on a year-over-year basis. Same-store volume growth is calculated by comparing the cumulative scan, treatment or case volume at all locations in the current year quarter to the same quarter in the prior year. The group of customers whose volume is included in the scan or treatment volume totals is those that received service from Alliance for the full quarter in each of the comparison periods. A positive percentage represents growth over the prior year quarter and a negative percentage represents a decline over the prior year period. Alliance measures each of its major imaging and oncology modalities, MRI, PET/CT, linear accelerator and SRS, separately.
