August 02, 2016

Second Quarter Revenue Increases 26.6%, Net Income Increases to $4.8M From ($0.4M), Adjusted EBITDA(1) Increases 22.7%, Year-Over-Year

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/02/16 -- Nobilis Health Corp. (NYSE MKT: HLTH) (TSX: NHC) ("Nobilis" or the "Company") today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016. All financial results are expressed in U.S. dollars.

"Our second quarter results reflect a continuation of our growth and operating strategy, including strong growth in case flow and higher average revenue per case, driven primarily by acquisitions made in 2015," said Harry Fleming, chief executive officer of Nobilis. "As we announced Monday, we have entered into an agreement to acquire Arizona Vein and Vascular and its affiliated clinics and Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs), adding five locations in the Phoenix and Tucson metropolitan areas and a new vascular brand. Looking ahead, we continue to seek potential acquisition opportunities in which we can leverage our marketing capabilities."

Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2016 increased to $61.9 million, a 26.6% increase over the same period the prior year. Total case volume increased by 248 cases, or 5.4%, to 4,863 in the second quarter of 2016, as compared to the same period the prior year. Revenue per case increased to $11,524 in the second quarter of 2016, as compared to $10,136 in the same period the prior year, reflecting the impact of a higher acuity case mix from the purchase of three new hospitals in 2015. The increase in total revenue and total case volume in the second quarter compared to the same quarter the prior year was due primarily to the acquisitions of three hospitals in 2015.

Net income attributable to Nobilis for the second quarter of 2016 was $4.8 million, or $0.06 per basic and fully diluted share, as compared to a net loss attributable to Nobilis of $0.4 million, or $0.01 per share, in the same period the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the second quarter of 2016, which adds back certain non-cash and non-recurring expenses, was $8.5 million, an increase of 22.7% over Adjusted EBITDA1 of $6.9 million for the same period the prior year.

Total cash was $18.8 million, accounts receivable was $77.6 million and total debt was $22.1 million as of June 30, 2016, compared to $15.7 million, $92.6 million and $22.7 million, respectively, at December 31, 2015.

As of August 2, 2016, Nobilis has collected approximately 91% of its December 31, 2015, receivables and is on track to collect the remaining balance.

As of June 30, 2016, the Company owned and/or managed four acute care surgical hospitals and five ambulatory surgical centers, and had affiliations with an additional 36 facilities.

First Half 2016 Financial Results

Total revenue for the first six months of 2016 increased to $113.1 million, a 30.5% increase over the same period the prior year. Total case volume for the first six months of 2016 increased by 706 cases, or 8.7%, to 8,837 cases from 8,131 cases for the same period the prior year. Revenue per case increased to $11,754 for the first six months of 2016, as compared to $10,282 for the same period the prior year, reflecting the impact of a higher acuity case mix from the purchase of three new hospitals in 2015. The increase in total revenue and total case volume for the first six months of 2016 compared to the same period the prior year was due primarily to the acquisitions of three hospitals in 2015.

Net loss attributable to Nobilis for the first six months of 2016 was $0.2 million, or $0.00 per share, as compared to net loss attributable to Nobilis of $4.8 million, or $0.08 per basic and fully diluted share, in the same period the prior year.

Adjusted EBITDA1 for the first six months of 2016, which adds back certain non-cash and non-recurring expenses, was $8.9 million, compared to Adjusted EBITDA1 of $11.4 million for the same period the prior year.

Full Year 2016 Guidance

For full year 2016, Nobilis is reiterating its original organic growth guidance of 20% for total revenues, or $275 million, and 21% for Adjusted EBITDA1, or $51 million. While our pipeline remains strong, as evidenced by the recently announced agreement to acquire Arizona Vein and Vascular, the timing of acquisitions is always uncertain. Therefore, from this point forward, Nobilis will no longer provide guidance that includes acquisitions. As we close future acquisitions, including Arizona Vein and Vascular, we will provide additional guidance.

1Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, non-cash compensation expenses, change in fair value of warrant and stock option derivative liabilities, acquisition expenses and non-recurring expenses. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a measure of financial performance required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"). Items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA is an analytical indicator used by management and the health care industry to evaluate company performance, allocate resources and measure leverage and debt service capacity. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows generated by operations, investing or financing activities, or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as indicators of financial performance or liquidity. Because Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP and is thus susceptible to varying calculations, Adjusted EBITDA as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Net income attributable to Nobilis Health Corp. common shareholders is the financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP that is most comparable to Adjusted EBITDA as defined.
