CRC Health Corporation Reports Operating Results For the Three Months Ended March 31, 2013

CUPERTINO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CRC Health Corporation, a leading provider of substance abuse treatment and adolescent youth services, announced its results for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

"During the first quarter of 2013, we delivered revenue growth in our recovery business, driven by both our CTCs and our residential recovery businesses, while our youth business struggled to achieve growth due to lack of demand in the marketplace and our weight management businesses delivered improved profitability as well as revenue growth. The future is promising as we continue to invest in areas that position us well for the dramatic changes occurring given healthcare reform," said R. Andrew Eckert, Chief Executive Officer.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2013 Compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2012

Recovery:

  • Net client service revenues increased $3.6 million, or 4%, primarily due to a $2.1 million increase from our CTC facilities and $1.4 million increase in our residential facilities. The increase in revenues at our CTC facilities was due to a combination of increased patient days at our facilities driven by marketing programs and clinically appropriate retention efforts, as well as certain rate increases across our facilities. The increase in revenues at our residential facilities was primarily driven by one of our Recovery residential facilities, New Life Lodge, where admissions had been suspended during the first quarter of 2012. This facility re-opened in April 2012.
  • Operating expenses increased $2.7 million, or 4%, primarily due to a $1.6 million increase related to our residential facilities and a $1.1 million increase related to our CTC facilities. The increased operating expenses at our residential facilities was primarily driven by the reopening of our New Life Lodge facility in April 2012 and the related increases in salaries, wages and benefits, outside services and other operating costs. The increased operating expenses at our CTC facilities was primarily due to increased marketing activities and employee salaries, wages and benefits.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased $1.0 million, or 4%, from the comparable prior period.

Youth:

  • Net client service revenues decreased by $1.4 million, or 8%, due primarily to a decrease in patient days at our residential facilities.
  • Operating expenses decreased $0.2 million, or 1%, due to a decrease in marketing activities and other facility operating costs associated with the decline in patient days. This decrease in operating expenses was slightly offset by an increase in employee benefit costs.
  • Adjusted EBITDA decreased $1.2 million from the comparable prior period.

Weight Management:

  • Net client service revenues increased by $0.2 million, or 3%, primarily due to an increase in patient days.
  • Operating expenses decreased $0.3 million, or 6%, primarily due to our efforts to manage facility operating costs and related salaries, wages and benefits.
  • Adjusted EBITDA increased $0.5 million from the comparable prior period.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

Under the terms of the our borrowing arrangements, we are required to comply with various covenants, including the maintenance of certain financial ratios, the calculations of which are based on Adjusted EBITDA, as defined in our credit agreements. As of March 31, 2013, we were in compliance with all such covenants. A breach of these could result in a default under our credit facilities and in our being unable to borrow additional amounts under our revolving credit facility. If an event of default occurs, the lenders could elect to declare all amounts borrowed under our credit facilities to be immediately due and payable and the lenders under our term loans and revolving credit facility could proceed against the collateral securing the indebtedness.

The computation of Adjusted EBITDA is provided below to provide an understanding of the impact that Adjusted EBITDA has on our ability to comply with certain covenants in our borrowing arrangements that are tied to these measures and to borrow under the credit facility. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) or cash flows from operating activities (which are determined in accordance with GAAP) and is not being presented as an indicator of operating performance or a measure of liquidity. Other companies may define Adjusted EBITDA differently and as a result, such measures may not be comparable to our Adjusted EBITDA.
