HCA Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

Stocks in this article: HCA

Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2012 increased 8.6 percent to $1.533 billion compared to $1.412 billion in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure. A table providing supplemental information on Adjusted EBITDA and reconciling net income attributable to HCA Holdings, Inc. to Adjusted EBITDA is included in this release.

Net income attributable to HCA Holdings, Inc. totaled $360 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, compared to $61 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2011. Results for the third quarter of 2011 include pretax losses on retirement of debt of $406 million, or $0.49 per diluted share. The effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2011 was favorably impacted by the finalization of settlements for the 1997 through 2001 tax years. These settlements resulted in a reduction to interest expense related to taxing authority examinations of $66 million pretax, or $0.08 per diluted share. (All “per diluted share” disclosures are based upon amounts net of the applicable income taxes.)

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012

Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 totaled $24.579 billion compared to $21.913 billion in the same period of 2011. Net income attributable to HCA Holdings, Inc. was $1.291 billion, or $2.81 per diluted share, compared to $530 million, or $1.04 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2011. Results for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 include pretax losses on retirement of debt of $481 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, and a pretax charge for the termination of a management agreement of $181 million, or $0.29 per diluted share.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of September 30, 2012, HCA Holdings, Inc.’s balance sheet reflected cash and cash equivalents of $472 million, total debt of $26.933 billion, and total assets of $27.302 billion. During the third quarter of 2012, capital expenditures totaled $484 million, excluding acquisitions. Net cash provided by operating activities in the third quarter of 2012 totaled $655 million compared to $880 million in the prior year’s third quarter. The reduction in cash flows from operating activities was primarily due to reductions of $145 million from changes in working capital items and $107 million from higher income taxes.
