Enhabit, Inc. (NYSE: EHAB), a leading home health and hospice care provider, today reported its results of operations for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

“Our momentum exiting 2023 and through the first quarter of 2024 instills confidence and excitement in our strategy and team,” said Enhabit’s President and Chief Executive Officer Barb Jacobsmeyer. “Our strong start to 2024 is a result of our team’s continued focus on our operational strategies. Additional frontline clinicians, more and better home health payor contracts and controlling general and administrative expenses were the key drivers of our performance in the first quarter and resulted in sustained consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $25.3 million in both the first quarter of 2024 and 2023. We are confident we are taking the right steps to drive future growth.”

The strategy to increase admissions in payor innovation contracts lessened the impact of mix shift contributing to sustained consolidated Adjusted EBITDA of $25.3 million in both periods presented. The shift to more non-Medicare admissions in home health impacted consolidated revenue and Adjusted EBITDA by approximately $6 million partially offset by approximately $4 million in pricing improvement.

(1) Private duty represents long-term comprehensive hourly nursing medical care.

Revenue declined year over year primarily due to the payor mix shift to more non-Medicare admissions (approximately $6 million) partially offset by improved pricing (approximately $4 million).

Adjusted EBITDA decreased year over year primarily due to the payor mix shift to more non-Medicare admissions and increased cost of service, offset by a reduction in general and administrative expenses. Cost per visit increased 2.3% year over year primarily due to merit and market rate increases. General and administrative expenses declined year over year primarily due to a new organizational structure implemented in the first quarter of 2023 to align the Company’s sales and operations teams.

Net service revenue decreased year over year as increased Medicare reimbursement rates were offset by a decrease in patient days.

Adjusted EBITDA increased year over year primarily due to a decrease in general and administrative expenses. Cost per day increased 2.6% year over year primarily due to a decrease in patient days. General and administrative expenses declined year over year primarily due to the restructuring of hospice back office staffing in the third quarter of 2023.

OTHER INFORMATION

Note regarding presentation and reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures

The financial data contained in this press release and supplemental information includes non-GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP)) financial measures as defined in Regulation G under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA margin, Adjusted EPS, and Adjusted free cash flow. See “Reconciliations of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable financial measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Additionally, our Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2024, provide further information regarding “unusual or nonrecurring items that are not typical of ongoing operations,” a reconciliation item in our Adjusted EBITDA calculation. Such non-GAAP financial measures exclude significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance and should therefore not be considered superior to, as a substitute for or alternative to the GAAP financial measures presented in this press release. The non-GAAP financial measures in the press release may differ from similar measures used by other companies.

The Company is unable to reconcile the guidance for Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EPS to their corresponding GAAP measures without unreasonable effort due to the inherent difficulty in predicting, with reasonable certainty, the future impact of items that are outside the control of the Company or otherwise non-indicative of its ongoing operating performance. Accordingly, the Company relies on the exception provided by Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of Regulation S-K. Such items include, but are not limited to, gains or losses related to hedging instruments; loss on early extinguishment of debt; adjustments to its income tax provision (such as valuation allowance adjustments and settlements of income tax claims); and items related to corporate and facility restructurings. For the same reasons, the Company is unable to address the probable significance of the unavailable information.

Note regarding presentation of same-store comparisons

The Company uses “same-store” comparisons to explain the changes in certain performance metrics and line items within its financial statements. Same-store comparisons are calculated based on home health and hospice locations open throughout both the full current period and the immediately prior period presented. These comparisons include the financial results of market consolidation transactions in existing markets, as it is difficult to determine, with precision, the incremental impact of these transactions on the Company’s results of operations.
