MEDNAX Exceeds Second Quarter Earnings Guidance, Earns $1.22 Per Share For 2012 Second Quarter

At June 30, 2012, MEDNAX had cash and cash equivalents of $12.1 million and net accounts receivable were $240.9 million. The Company had no outstanding balance on its $500 million revolving credit facility at June 30, 2012.

During the 2012 second quarter, MEDNAX generated cash flow from operations of $117.1 million.

MEDNAX also used $41.3 million of its cash during the 2012 second quarter to fund three anesthesiology group practice acquisitions and to make contingent purchase price payments for previously completed acquisitions. The three anesthesiology group practices acquired by MEDNAX during the second quarter are located in Burlington, North Carolina; Bryan, Texas; and Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

A total of seven physician group practices have been acquired through June 30, 2012, with four physician group practices becoming part of Pediatrix Medical Group and three group practices becoming part of American Anesthesiology.

Since the end of the 2012 second quarter, MEDNAX has announced the acquisition of two anesthesia physician group practices, one in Knoxville, Tennessee and one in Leesburg, Virginia.

2012 Third Quarter Outlook

For the 2012 third quarter, MEDNAX expects earnings will be in a range of $1.25 to $1.30 per share. This range assumes that total same-unit revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2012 will grow by 1.0 percent to 3.0 percent from the prior-year period. This same-unit growth forecast is expected to be divided between approximately one-half patient volume growth across all MEDNAX physician specialties and one-half net reimbursement growth, including improvements from commercial contract rates as well as variability in the mix of services reimbursed under commercial and government payor programs. This range also includes estimated contributions from practices acquired since the end of the 2012 second quarter.
