Community Health Systems, Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2013 Results With Net Operating Revenues Of $3.2 Billion

Community Health Systems, Inc. (NYSE: CYH) (the “Company”) today announced financial and operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

Net operating revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2013, totaled $3.218 billion, a 0.2 percent increase compared with $3.212 billion for the same period in 2012. Income from continuing operations decreased to $21.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared with $58.8 million for the same period in 2012. Both income from continuing operations and net income attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. common stockholders were $0.04 per share (diluted) for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared with $0.49 per share (diluted) for the same period in 2012. We are currently in negotiations with the Department of Justice about resolving its claims in connection with the Department’s investigation into the Company’s short stay hospital admissions for the years 2005-2010, as well as their investigation at our hospital in Laredo, Texas. Based on those negotiations, which are not final, we believe that a reserve of $98 million, or $0.65 per share (diluted), is sufficient to cover the federal government’s claims for Medicare admissions, certain claims specifically related to our hospital in Laredo, Texas, and on other related legal expenses. This reserve is not meant to include claims in this investigation arising from Tricare, Medicaid, or third party legal expenses. The results for the three months ended September 30, 2013, include $0.65 per share (diluted) of expenses related to this reserve as well as $0.03 per share (diluted) of expenses related to the anticipated acquisition of Health Management Associates, Inc. (“HMA”). Excluding these expenses, both income from continuing operations and net income attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. common stockholders were $0.72 per share (diluted) for the three months ended September 30, 2013. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, excluding the loss from early extinguishment of debt of $0.37 per share (diluted), both income from continuing operations and net income attributable to Community Health Systems, Inc. common stockholders were $0.86 per share (diluted). Weighted-average shares outstanding (diluted) were 94.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2013, and 90.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012.
