Kindred Healthcare Announces Fourth Quarter Results

During the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company recorded a $108 million goodwill impairment charge to reflect circumstances in which the carrying value of certain assets exceeded their fair value. The impairment charge resulted primarily from the expected decline in operating results in the Company’s rehabilitation division related to previously announced Medicare reimbursement changes that were recently enacted by Congress in connection with the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (the “Taxpayer Relief Act”).

Fiscal Year Results

Continuing Operations

Consolidated revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased 12% to $6.2 billion compared to $5.5 billion in the previous year. The Company reported a loss from continuing operations of $33.4 million or $0.65 per diluted share in 2012 compared to a loss of $47.8 million or $1.04 per diluted share in 2011.

In addition to the charges noted above in the discussion of fourth quarter results, operating results in 2012 included (a) costs incurred in connection with the closing of a regional office, (b) lease cancellation charges and other costs incurred in connection with two hospital closings and the cancellation of a sub-acute unit project and (c) a charge in connection with an employment-related lawsuit, all of which reduced income from continuing operations by $114.1 million or $2.21 per diluted share. Operating results in 2011 included certain items that reduced income from continuing operations by $134.3 million or $2.90 per diluted share, most of which were related to asset impairment charges and the RehabCare acquisition.

Discontinued Operations

During 2012, the Company entered into transactions related to the divestiture of unprofitable businesses qualifying as discontinued operations. For accounting purposes, the historical operating results and losses on the disposal of these businesses have been classified as discontinued operations in the Company’s consolidated statement of operations for all historical periods.
