LOS ANGELES, March 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RadNet, Inc. (NASDAQ: RDNT), a national leader in providing high-quality, cost-effective, fixed-site outpatient diagnostic imaging services through a network of 344 owned and/or operated outpatient imaging centers, today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018.

Financial Results

Fourth Quarter Report:

For the fourth quarter of 2018, RadNet reported Revenue of $257.2 million, Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $46.2 million and Net Income of $29.1 million. Revenue increased $21.7 million (or 9.2%), Adjusted EBITDA(1) increased $5.5 million (or 13.5%) and Net Income increased $36.4 million over the fourth quarter of 2017.

Net Income for the fourth quarter was $0.59 per diluted share, compared to a Net Loss of $(0.15) per diluted share in the fourth quarter of 2017. These per share values are based upon a weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding of 49.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2018 and 47.9 million of diluted shares outstanding in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Affecting Adjusted Net Income in the fourth quarter of 2018 were certain non-cash expenses and non-recurring items including: $39.5 million gain from the re-measurement of the Company’s equity interest in New Jersey Imaging Network upon its consolidation, $19.1 loss from changes in the organization of our east coast and international operations; $3.9 million loss on Goodwill/Trade Name impairment related to our teleradiology business; $1.1 million of non-cash employee stock compensation expense resulting from the vesting of certain options and restricted stock; $844,000 of severance paid in connection with headcount reductions related to cost savings initiatives; $786,000 legal settlement; $1.7 million change in fair value of stock consideration related to the acquisition of Medical Arts Radiology; $150,000 loss on the disposal of certain capital equipment; and $974,000 of amortization of deferred financing costs and loan discount related to our existing credit facilities.

For the fourth quarter of 2018, as compared with the prior year’s fourth quarter, MRI volume increased 9.6%, CT volume increased 12.0% and PET/CT volume increased 8.4%. Overall volume, taking into account routine imaging exams, inclusive of x-ray, ultrasound, mammography and other exams, increased 8.3% over the prior year’s fourth quarter. On a same-center basis, including only those centers which were part of RadNet for both the fourth quarters of 2018 and 2017, MRI volume increased 2.2%, CT volume increased 2.7% and PET/CT volume decreased 7.8%. Overall same-center volume, taking into account routine imaging exams, inclusive of x-ray, ultrasound, mammography and other exams, increased 1.1% from the prior year’s same quarter.

Dr. Howard Berger, President and Chief Executive Officer of RadNet, commented “We completed significant changes in the organization of our east coast operations during the quarter that positions us well for 2019 and beyond. This included obtaining control and thereby consolidating the operations of our New Jersey Imaging Network joint venture effective October 1, 2019. We also added non-cash reserves for a doubtful receivable related to our consulting operations in Qatar and impaired the goodwill associated with our non-core teleradiology business.”

“Adjusting for these activities and despite being impacted by the California wildfires in November, our business was very strong in the fourth quarter. Our key metrics increased from last year’s fourth quarter, including Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA(1) and aggregate and same-center volumes. In particular, we grew our fourth quarter Adjusted EBITDA by over 13% and expanded our EBITDA margin by almost 70 basis points compared with last year’s fourth quarter,” added Dr. Berger.

“We continue to execute all aspects of our strategic plan. During the quarter, we operationalized our first east coast capitation contract with Emblem Health and will ramp these operations throughout 2019. We also began the integration of our first Long Island acquisition, Medical Arts Radiology,” Dr. Berger noted.

Annual Report:

For full year 2018, the Company reported Revenue of $975.1 million, Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $143.5 million and Net Income of $32.2 million. Revenue increased $53.0 million (or 5.7%) and Adjusted EBITDA(1) increased $1.0 million (or 0.7%). Net Income for 2018 was $0.66 per diluted share, compared to Net Income of $0.00 per diluted share in 2017 (based upon a weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding of 48.7 million and 47.4 million in 2018 and 2017, respectively).

Affecting Net Income in the fourth quarter of 2018 were certain non-cash expenses and non-recurring items including: $39.5 million gain resulting from the re-measurement of the Company’s equity interest in New Jersey Imaging Network upon its consolidation, $19.1 loss from changes in the organization of our east coast and international operations; $3.9 million loss on Goodwill/Trade Name impairment related to our teleradiology business; $7.7 million of non-cash employee stock compensation expense resulting from the vesting of certain options and restricted stock; $1.9 million of severance paid in connection with headcount reductions related to cost savings initiatives; $786,000 legal settlement; $1.7 million change in fair value of stock consideration related to the acquisition of Medical Arts Radiology; $2.1 million gain on the disposal of certain capital equipment; and $3.9 million of amortization of deferred financing costs and loan discount related to our existing credit facilities.

For the year ended December 31, 2018, as compared to 2017, MRI volume increased 6.3%, CT volume increased 9.1% and PET/CT volume increased 11.6%. Overall volume, taking into account routine imaging exams, inclusive of x-ray, ultrasound, mammography and other exams, increased 4.1% for the twelve months of 2018 over 2017.

Dr. Berger remarked, “2018 was a very active year for RadNet, one that sets the stage for future growth and success. During 2018 and subsequent to year end, we completed several important transactions within existing core markets. In April, we completed the acquisition of five imaging centers in Fresno, California. In October, we completed our first acquisition in Long Island, New York (Medical Arts Radiology) to coincide with becoming operational with our first east coast capitation contract with Emblem Health. Subsequent to year end, we announced signing a definitive agreement to acquire Kern Radiology, an operator of five imaging centers in Bakersfield, California and established our second California-based joint venture with Dignity Health in Ventura County. The acquisitions and joint venture further our strategy of geographic concentration, which brings operating efficiencies and establishes RadNet as the largest non-hospital imaging center operator in all of the markets in which we operate. The Ventura County Dignity Health joint ventures is an example of our continued interest to partner with progressive health systems that recognize the continuing shift of medical services towards ambulatory, lower-cost settings. We now have over 25% of our facilities within joint ventures with leading health systems.”

 
Actual Results vs. 2018 Guidance:
 
The following compares the Company’s actual 2018 performance with previously announced guidance levels.
 
    Guidance Range   Actual Results
Total Net Revenue   $945 million - $970 million   $975.1 million
Adjusted EBITDA(1)   $140 million - $150 million   $143.8 million
Capital Expenditures (a)   $60 million - $65 million   $69.6 million
Cash Interest Expense   $33 million - $38 million   $37.0 million
Free Cash Flow Generation (b)   $45 million - $55 million
  $36.9 million
 
(a) Net of proceeds from the sale of equipment, imaging centers and joint venture interests.
(b) Defined by the Company as Adjusted EBITDA(1) less total capital expenditures and cash paid for interest.
 

Dr. Berger commented, “We exceeded our revenue guidance and finished the year towards the middle of our Adjusted EBITDA(1) range. Our capital expenditures exceeded our initial guidance range primarily as a result of the more than $10 million one-time investment we made related to the Emblem Health capitation contract, which became operational in October, as well as additional capital expenditures that were recorded in the fourth quarter due to the financial statement consolidation our New Jersey Imaging Network joint venture. The higher capital expenditures directly impacted our free cash flow, which otherwise would have been within our guidance range.”

 
2019 Fiscal Year Guidance
 
For its 2019 fiscal year, RadNet announces its guidance ranges as follows:
 
Total Net Revenue   $1,050 million - $1,100 million
Adjusted EBITDA(1)   $155 million - $165 million
Capital Expenditures (a)   $60 million - $65 million
Cash Interest Expense   $38 million - $43 million
Free Cash Flow Generation (b)   $45 million - $55 million
 
(a) Net of proceeds from the sale of equipment, imaging centers and joint venture interests.
(b) Defined by the Company as Adjusted EBITDA(1) less total capital expenditures and cash paid for interest.
 

Dr. Berger noted, “We are optimistic about 2019. First, we expect 2019 to have stable reimbursement. Medicare rates for 2019 are commensurate with 2018 reimbursement and our relationships with private payors and capitated medical groups represent potential upside in our rates. Second, we expect to benefit from the contributions of recent acquisitions and initiatives that either were part of RadNet for only a portion of 2018 or did not contribute at all during 2018. These include the acquisitions of Medical Arts Radiology and Kern Radiology (scheduled to close on April 1st), the establishment of a new joint venture with Dignity Health in Ventura, California, the recently operationalized capitation contract with Emblem Health and the consolidation, from a financial statement perspective, of New Jersey Imaging Network. Third, we were impacted by adverse weather conditions in the first quarter of 2018 which decreased our Adjusted EBITDA in 2018 by approximately $5.8 million. Thus far in 2019, adverse winter weather conditions in the northeast have been much less of a factor in our performance. Lastly, we anticipate driving organic growth from significant capital spending in 2018, which included a commitment to 3D mammography and the expansion of a number of our wholly-owned and joint venture centers.”

Footnotes
 
(1) The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, each from continuing operations and excludes losses or gains on the disposal of equipment, other income or loss, loss on debt extinguishments, bargain purchase gains and non-cash equity compensation. Adjusted EBITDA includes equity earnings in unconsolidated operations and subtracts allocations of earnings to non-controlling interests in subsidiaries, and is adjusted for non-cash and extraordinary events which took place during the period.
 
Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled to its nearest comparable GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure used as analytical indicator by RadNet management and the healthcare industry to assess business performance, and is a measure of leverage capacity and ability to service debt. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income, cash flows generated by operating, investing or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity. As Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and is therefore susceptible to varying methods of calculation, this metric, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
 
(2) As noted above, the Company defines Free Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA less total Capital Expenditures (whether completed with cash or financed) and Cash Interest paid. Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company uses Free Cash Flow because the Company believes it provides useful information for investors and management because it measures our capacity to generate cash from our operating activities. Free Cash Flow does not represent total cash flow since it does not include the cash flows generated by or used in financing activities. In addition, our definition of Free Cash Flow may differ from definitions used by other companies.
 
Free Cash Flow should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income, cash flows generated by operating, investing or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity. As Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and is therefore susceptible to varying methods of calculation, this metric, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
