America Service Group Announces First Quarter Results

Stocks in this article: ASGR

America Service Group Inc. (NASDAQ:ASGR) announced today results for the first quarter March 31, 2011, and maintained its guidance for full-year 2011 results.

Income Statement Presentation Format as a Result of United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) Related to Discontinued Operations

As noted in its 2010 annual report on Form 10-K, the Company is applying the discontinued operations provisions of GAAP to all service contracts that expire subsequent to January 1, 2002. In accordance with GAAP, the results of operations of contracts that expire, less applicable income taxes are classified on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations separately from continuing operations. The presentation prescribed for discontinued operations requires the collapsing of healthcare revenues and expenses, as well as other specifically identifiable costs, into the income or loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes. Items such as indirect selling, general and administrative expenses or interest expense cannot be allocated to expired contracts. The GAAP accounting presentation as it relates to discontinued operations and the Company’s expired contracts has no impact on net income, earnings per share, total cash flows or stockholders’ equity.

As a result of the application of GAAP related to discontinued operations, “healthcare revenues” and “healthcare expenses” on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations for any period presented will only include revenues and expenses from continuing contracts. The Company will also discuss “Total Revenues,” “Total Healthcare Expenses,” and “Total Gross Margin,” which will include all of the Company’s revenues and healthcare expenses for a period (i.e., healthcare revenues plus revenues from expired service contracts, or healthcare expenses plus expenses from expired contracts less share-based compensation expense). Total Gross Margin is defined as Total Revenues less Total Healthcare Expenses. Total Gross Margin excludes share-based compensation expense. Reconciliations of healthcare revenues to Total Revenues, healthcare expenses to Total Healthcare Expenses and gross margin to Total Gross Margin are found in the attached schedules.

Results for First Quarter Ended March 31, 2011

Healthcare revenues from continuing contracts for the first quarter of 2011 were $153.9 million, a decrease of 3.8% over the prior year quarter. Total Revenues, which include revenues from continuing and discontinued contracts, for the first quarter of 2011 were $153.7 million, a decrease of 6.3% from the prior year quarter.
