Humana Reports Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results, Issues 2013 Guidance, And Announces CEO Transition And Recent Strategic Transactions

“Our third-quarter results demonstrate that the issues which surfaced in the second quarter have stabilized,” said Bruce D. Broussard, President of Humana. “We believe our improving operations and continued Medicare membership growth, together with our integrated care delivery system investments, position Humana well for a dynamic future.”

Chief Executive Officer Transition

As disclosed in November 2011, Michael B. McCallister, Humana’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, plans to retire as the company’s Chief Executive Officer. The company’s Board of Directors has appointed Bruce D. Broussard, the company’s President since December 2011, to become President and Chief Executive Officer effective January 1, 2013, completing the company’s year-long transition plan for the CEO position. At that time, Mr. Broussard will also join the company’s Board of Directors and Mr. McCallister will become non-executive Chairman of the Board of Directors.

“Long-term, we believe the company is poised for further growth under the leadership of our incoming CEO, Bruce Broussard,” said McCallister. “Bruce’s focus, energy, and effectiveness have been amply displayed in his tenure as Humana’s president.”

Strategic Transactions

Humana announced the following transactions today, each a strategic step in the company’s continued development of an integrated care delivery model.
  • Metropolitan Health Networks, Inc. (NYSE: MDF) – The company announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Metropolitan Health Networks, Inc. (Metropolitan), a Medical Services Organization (MSO) that coordinates medical care for Medicare Advantage and Medicaid beneficiaries primarily in Florida. Under the terms of the agreement, Humana will pay $11.25 per share in cash to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Metropolitan and repay all outstanding debt for an estimated transaction value of approximately $850 million plus transaction costs. The transaction is subject to Metropolitan shareholder approval as well as expiration of the Hart-Scott-Rodino anti-trust waiting period and is expected to close by the end of the first quarter of 2013. Humana expects to finance this transaction with a combination of cash and debt.
  • MCCI Holdings, L.L.C. – The company has acquired a non-controlling equity interest in MCCI Holdings, L.L.C. (MCCI), an MSO headquartered in Miami, Florida that coordinates medical care for Medicare Advantage and Medicaid beneficiaries primarily in Florida and Texas. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
  • Certify Data Systems – The company has acquired Certify Data Systems (Certify), a pioneer in health information exchange (HIE) technology. Certify’s HealthLogix TM solution provides two-way sharing of clinical information across disparate electronic health-record systems, connecting healthcare providers and allowing them to share relevant patient health information in real-time. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Today we significantly advanced our strategy of aligning physician pay to quality through our investments in Metropolitan and MCCI. Combined with existing capabilities in our CAC and Concentra medical centers, Humana will soon employ or have strategic investments in medical practices that include nearly 2,300 physicians nationwide.” said Broussard. “The Certify acquisition furthers our integrated data platform through the real-time sharing of relevant health information at the point of care.
