Tenet Reports $336 Million Of Adjusted EBITDA For Second Quarter

Stocks in this article: THC

Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE:THC) today reported its results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013, which included the following:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $336 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013, an increase of $48 million, or 16.7 percent, as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of $288 million in the second quarter of 2012.
  • Income from continuing operations, excluding impairments, restructuring charges, acquisition-related costs, litigation and investigation costs, the loss on early extinguishment of debt, and other tax adjustments, was $69 million after-tax, or $0.66 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013. In the second quarter of 2012, income from continuing operations was $44 million after-tax, or $0.41 per diluted share, excluding litigation and investigation costs, impairments, and restructuring charges.

“Tenet drove a 16.7 percent increase in Adjusted EBITDA through outstanding cost control and revenue growth,” said Trevor Fetter, president and chief executive officer. “We grew both outpatient visits and emergency department volumes in the quarter, and we doubled revenues in our Conifer services business. We are revising our Outlook for 2013 Adjusted EBITDA to growth of 4 to 8 percent reflecting softer than anticipated inpatient volumes. Planning for the integration of our Vanguard Health Systems acquisition is proceeding smoothly, and we expect to close the transaction before the end of this year.”

Discussion of Results (Percentage changes compare Q2’13 to Q2’12, unless otherwise noted.)

Adjusted admissions declined 0.7 percent in the second quarter reflecting a 2.5 percent increase in outpatient visits and a 3.5 percent decline in inpatient admissions. Outpatient visit growth was 39 percent organic. Emergency department visits increased 2.9 percent, and surgeries increased by 13.9 percent.

Net operating revenues were $2.422 billion, an increase of $157 million, or 6.9 percent, compared to net operating revenues of $2.265 billion in the second quarter of 2012. Total net patient revenue per adjusted admission was $12,208, an increase of 2.7 percent. These pricing increases primarily reflect improved terms in our contracts with commercial managed care payers. Commercial managed care revenue increased 4.7 percent per admission, 6.3 percent per patient day, and 6.9 percent per outpatient visit. Net operating revenues in the second quarter of 2013 included $19 million of additional revenues from the California Provider Fee 30-month Program compared to the second quarter of 2012.
