Chindex International, Inc. Reports Financial Results for the Third Quarter and First Nine Months of 2012

3Q12 Revenue up 29% to $37.3 Million

BETHESDA, Md., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Chindex International, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHDX), an American health care company providing health care services in China through the operations of United Family Healthcare, a network of private primary care hospitals and affiliated ambulatory clinics, today announced financial results for the third quarter and first nine months of 2012 ended September 30, 2012.

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Highlights

  • Revenue from healthcare services increased 29% to $37.3 million from $28.8 million in the prior year period.
  • Adjusted EBITDA rose by 40% to $6.0 million, from Adjusted EBITDA of $4.3 million in the prior year period.
  • Development, pre-opening and start-up expense was $2.7 million compared to $2.4 million in the prior year period.
  • Income from operations was $1.5 million, compared to $490,000 in the prior year period.
  • Net loss was $664,000, or $(0.04) per diluted share, compared to net income of $315,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

Roberta Lipson, President and CEO of Chindex, commented, "We are pleased to see continuously strong momentum on the top line and adjusted EBITDA as Beijing and Shanghai markets recorded robust growth in patient volumes. Revenue grew 29% year-over-year to $37.3 million--a record for the generally slower third quarter and putting us well on track to deliver high twenties to low thirties revenue growth for the full year. Adjusted EBITDA grew 40% year-over-year to $6.0 million, representing a 16% margin. This quarter, our GAAP bottom line was affected by not only continuously high development expenses and provision of income tax, but also a loss from our equity investment in Chindex Medical Limited.

"During the third quarter, we continued to move development projects forward across the Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin markets. Construction remains on schedule for Beijing Rehabilitation Hospital and should be complete by the first quarter of 2013. Our new clinic in Beijing's Central Business District (CBD), where many high-income Chinese and expatriate professionals work and live, is nearing completion and is expected to start operations by the end of this year. We have also been broadening and deepening our human resources to support growth in revenues and capabilities. For example, we recently welcomed Dr. Hu Dayi, one of China's most renowned cardiologists and medical academics, and Dr. Ling Feng, a world-famous neurosurgeon and a pioneer of interventional neuroradiology, to join UFH's world-class medical team. The unique and expanding quality and abilities of UFH's staff is not only supporting our rapid growth but reinforcing our competitive positioning as well.

"Looking forward to the remainder of the year, we anticipate growing market demand and expanded facilities and services to continue driving robust revenue growth," Ms. Lipson continued. "We reaffirm previous guidance for revenue expansion and EBITDA margin for the full year of 2012. We expect our topline to reach to approximately $145 to $152 million, representing a year-over-year percentage growth rate in the high-twenties to mid-thirties. Adjusted EBITDA margin is expected to remain in the upper-teens range. We expect strong performance from CML in the fourth quarter as it recognizes delayed sales revenue and can act on increased sales opportunities. This, in turn, should offset losses in the third quarter and result in a contribution from the venture for the full year. We expect development expense to grow to approximately $11 to $12 million."

Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Third quarter 2012 revenue from healthcare services increased 29% to $37.3 million from $28.8 million in the prior year period. These results reflect continued growth of inpatient and outpatient volume across the United Family Healthcare network as well as increasing contributions from the phased expansion of the Company's flagship hospital in Beijing. Outpatient services contributed 56% and inpatient services contributed 44% of revenue, compared with 58% and 42%, respectively, in the prior year period. By service line, surgical services contributed 20.0%, OB/GYN contributed 16.1%, pediatrics contributed 7.6%, ancillary services contributed 30.4% and other clinical service lines contributed 25.9% of revenue.

Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2012 increased 27% to $35.8 million from $28.3 million in the prior year period. These costs were primarily driven by the Company's recently opened expansions as well as development of new facilities. Salaries, wages and benefits in the third quarter of 2012 increased 28% to $21.1 million from $16.5 million in the prior year period, reflecting a 38% increase in headcount to support revenue growth and development activities, including newly recruited staff now on-board in anticipation of the opening of the Company's Rehabilitation Hospital. Development, pre- and post-opening and start-up expenses were $2.7 million this quarter, compared to $2.4 million for the prior year period. These expenses were driven by development projects across all markets, including particularly the Beijing Rehabilitation Hospital and the ramp-up of Tianjin United Family Hospital. Operating expenses also included certain non-cash expenses including $904,000 of stock-based compensation expense compared to $878,000 for the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA in the third quarter of 2012 increased 40% to approximately $6.0 million from $4.3 million in the prior year period. The Adjusted EBITDA margin in the current period was 16%. The Adjusted EBITDA results illustrate the consistent profitability and expanding earnings base of existing UFH facilities.

Income from operations increased to $1.5 million from $490,000 in the prior year period.

The Company recorded a $1.5 million provision for taxes in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $791,000 in the prior year period. As in past quarters, the current period provision continued to be heavily impacted by losses in development and start-up entities for which the Company cannot currently recognize tax benefits.

Net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 was $664,000, or $(0.04) per diluted share, compared to net income of $315,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the prior year period. For the third quarter of 2012, weighted average diluted shares outstanding were 16.4 million.

As of September 30, 2012, the Company had $27.5 million in unrestricted cash, cash equivalents and investments.

First Nine months 2012 Financial Results

During the first nine months of 2012, revenue from healthcare services increased 32% to $108.9 million from $82.5 million in the prior year period, reflecting growing inpatient and outpatient volume across the United Family Healthcare network. Outpatient services contributed 59% of revenue and inpatient services contributed 41% of revenue in the first nine months of 2012 unchanged from the ratios of the first nine months of 2011. By service line, surgical services contributed 20.1%, OB/GYN contributed 14.8%, pediatrics contributed 7.5%, ancillary services contributed 32.0% and other services contributed 25.6% of revenue.

Operating expenses for the first nine months of 2012 increased 31% to $103.4 million from $78.9 million in the prior year period. Development, pre-opening and start up expenses rose to $8.5 million from $5.2 million in the prior year period primarily as a result of expenses related to the Company's Beijing and Tianjin projects. Operating expenses also included certain non-cash expenses including $2,505,000 of non-cash stock compensation expense compared to $2,547,000 for the prior year. Income from operations increased 53% to $5.5 million compared to income from operations of $3.6 million in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA was approximately $19.2 million compared to $12.8 million in the prior year period reflecting a 18% margin, meeting the Company's upper teens target for the year.

Provision for taxes was $4.5 million compared to $2.9 million in the prior year period. Net income was $615,000, or $0.05 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.0 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the first nine months of 2011. For the first nine months of 2012 ended September 30, 2012, weighted average diluted shares outstanding were 17.6 million.

Chindex Medical Limited

For Chindex Medical Limited, a joint venture (CML) between Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical (Group) Co., Ltd. ("Fosun Pharma") and Chindex International, Chindex recognizes its 49% interest in CML's net income using the equity method of accounting. In the third quarter and first nine months of 2012 ended September 30, 2012, Chindex recognized loss of $785,000 and $573,000, respectively, for its 49% equity in the operating results of CML. This consisted of losses of $1,339,000 and $381,000, respectively, for the stand-alone net income (loss) of CML (after recognition of stock-based compensation expense) and after deducting $129,000 and $387,000, respectively, for the amortization of basis differences attributable to acquired intangibles. The Company expects a CML to have a strong fourth quarter which is expected to offset losses in the third quarter and result in a contribution from the venture for the full year.

Non-GAAP Measures

The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA to better illustrate ongoing operational results. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income (loss) before interest expense, interest and other income, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, and also excludes development, pre-opening and start-up expenses related to new and pending hospitals and clinics, equity in earnings (loss) income of unconsolidated affiliate, non-recurring charges for Chindex Medical Limited (CML) joint venture formation and effect of change in corporate cost allocations. The Company anticipates recurring development, pre-opening and start-up expense and notes that such expense is a basic element of the long term growth plan. Management believes that providing an Adjusted EBITDA analysis to investors is a helpful metric to better illustrate the Company's operations, including development plans, and changes in presentation from historical periods. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA for business planning and other purposes. Other companies may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, and therefore Chindex's Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income (loss), cash flows from operating activities and other measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant and necessary components to the operations of the Company's business, and, therefore, Adjusted EBITDA should only be used as a supplemental measure of operating performance.

Conference Call

Management will host a conference call at 8:00 am ET Thursday morning on November 8, 2012 to discuss financial results. To participate in the conference call, U.S. domestic callers may dial 1-877-303-9231 and international callers may dial 1-760-666-3567 approximately 10 minutes before the conference call is scheduled to begin. A webcast and replay of the earnings call will be accessible via Chindex's website at http://ir.chindex.com/events.cfm.
