Kindred Healthcare Acquires Home Health And Hospice Company

Stocks in this article: KND

Kindred Healthcare, Inc. (the “Company” or “Kindred”) (NYSE:KND) today announced that its subsidiary has acquired IntegraCare Holdings, Inc. (“IntegraCare”), a portfolio company of private equity firm Flexpoint Ford, LLC, for a purchase price of $71 million in cash plus a potential $4 million cash earn out based on 2013 earnings growth. The Company financed the transaction with operating cash flows and proceeds from its revolving credit facility. IntegraCare had no outstanding long-term debt at closing.

IntegraCare is a high-quality provider of home health, hospice and community services which operates 47 locations across Texas. IntegraCare currently generates annualized revenues of approximately $71 million and earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization of approximately $9 million. The Company expects to achieve annualized synergies of approximately $1.5 million once the integration of IntegraCare is fully completed in 2013. Kindred currently operates three nursing and rehabilitation centers, nine long-term acute care (“LTAC”) hospitals, three inpatient rehabilitation facilities (“IRFs”) and one hospital-based sub-acute unit within IntegraCare’s existing service areas and the transaction will provide a platform for organic expansion into additional markets throughout the south including the Houston market where Kindred has a large market presence.

The Company expects that the transaction will be slightly accretive to earnings in 2012 and $0.07 to $0.09 per diluted share accretive to earnings in 2013.

Paul J. Diaz, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented that “IntegraCare will allow us to continue expanding our continuum of post-acute services in our key Dallas and Houston cluster markets allowing us to better “Continue the Care” for our patients throughout a post-acute episode. The growth and development of our PeopleFirst Homecare and Hospice business is an important element of our value proposition. We believe that the continued expansion of our continuum of post-acute care services in our key cluster markets supports the growing interest among patients, physicians, hospital systems and public and private payors for high-quality, patient-centered integrated care.”
