Earnings Guidance – Continuing Operations

The Company maintained its previous earnings guidance for 2013. The Company expects consolidated revenues for 2013 to approximate $5.9 billion. Operating income, or earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation, amortization and rent, is expected to range from $794 million to $810 million. Rent expense is expected to approximate $387 million, while depreciation and amortization should approximate $189 million. Net interest expense is expected to approximate $113 million. The Company expects to report income from continuing operations for 2013 between $60 million and $70 million or $1.10 to $1.30 per diluted share (based upon diluted shares of 52.7 million).

The Company re-affirmed its operating cash flow guidance for 2013 at a range between $230 million and $250 million. Estimated routine capital expenditures for 2013 are expected to range from $120 million to $130 million. In addition to its routine capital expenditures, the Company re-affirmed that its development of new or replacement transitional care (“TC”) hospitals, transitional care centers, and inpatient rehabilitation hospitals (“IRFs”) will approximate $20 million to $30 million in 2013. Operating cash flows in excess of the Company’s routine and development capital spending programs, which are expected to approximate $90 million for 2013, will be available to repay debt and fund acquisitions.

The Company’s earnings guidance for 2013 assumes (a) reductions in Medicare payments for rehabilitation therapy services, including those contained in the Taxpayer Relief Act, expected to range from $25 million to $30 million on an annual basis, and (b) sequestration cuts of 2% related to all of its Medicare revenues that will begin on April 1, 2013. In addition, the guidance assumes that the previously announced exit in 2013 from 54 nursing centers leased from Ventas will be reflected as discontinued operations effective January 1, 2013. The earnings guidance also excludes the effect of any other reimbursement changes, any future acquisitions or dispositions, any impairment charges, and any repurchases of common stock.
