FRANKLIN, Tennessee (May 15, 2015) — IASIS Healthcare® LLC (“IASIS” or the “Company”) today announced financial and operating results for the fiscal second quarter and six months ended March 31, 2015. The Company’s discontinued operations in the accompanying consolidated financial statements have been excluded from Consolidated Financial and Operating Data and Supplemental Consolidated Statements of Operations Information for the fiscal second quarters and six month periods ended March 31, 2015 and 2014.

Key Financial & Operating Results

Second Quarter Fiscal 2015

Total revenue for the second quarter totaled $696.8 million, an increase of 11.0% compared to $627.8 million in the prior year quarter. Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter totaled $74.6 million, an increase of 12.0% compared to $66.6 million in the prior year quarter. Net earnings from continuing operations for the second quarter totaled $8.7 million, compared to $3.2 million in the prior year quarter. Included in our results for the second quarter of fiscal 2015 were $1.4 million of costs associated with the pending initial public offering of the Company’s parent, IASIS Healthcare Corporation.

Acute care revenue for the second quarter increased 3.5% compared to the prior year quarter. In the second quarter, admissions increased 1.0% and adjusted admissions increased 4.1%, each compared to the prior year quarter. Net patient revenue per adjusted admission in the second quarter decreased 0.4% compared to the prior year quarter.

Premium and service revenues in our managed care risk platform for the second quarter, excluding the effect of $4.7 million of revenue associated with the federal health insurer fee, increased 27.9% compared to the prior year quarter. Total lives served across all managed care product lines increased 73.9% to 374,300, compared to 215,300 in the prior year quarter. Total lives served in the second quarter included 93,700 lives associated with the Company’s management services organization (“MSO”), which began operations on June 1, 2014. Health plan lives increased 19.7% compared to the prior year quarter, mostly attributable to growth in our Medicaid product line.

For the second quarter, the medical loss ratio (“MLR”) associated with premium revenue across all health plans in the Company’s managed care risk platform was 83.9%, compared to 85.6% in the prior year quarter. The MLR for the second quarter benefited from reduced medical costs resulting from the effective care management of childless adult members, who were newly enrolled as a result of the recent expansion of the Medicaid program in Arizona effective January 1, 2014. This newly enrolled population typically experiences more frequent medical utilization and higher acuity levels prior to effective management of their care. As a result of effective care management, the MLR for the Company’s Arizona Medicaid plan declined 530 basis points (“bps”) during the quarter ended March 31, 2015, compared to the prior year quarter.

Year-to-Date Fiscal 2015

Total revenue for the first six months of fiscal 2015 totaled $1.37 billion, an increase of 11.7% compared to $1.22 billion in the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA for the first six months of fiscal 2015 totaled $130.5 million, a decrease of 0.2% compared to $130.8 million in the prior year period. Net earnings from continuing operations for the first six months of fiscal 2015 totaled $8.4 million, compared to $5.2 million in the prior year period. Included in our results for the first six months of fiscal 2015 was $1.4 million of costs associated with the pending initial public offering of the Company’s parent.

Acute care revenue for the first six months of fiscal 2015 increased 4.1% compared to the prior year period. In the first six months of fiscal 2015, admissions increased 2.0% and adjusted admissions increased 4.1%, each compared to the prior year period. Net patient revenue per adjusted admission in the first six months of fiscal 2015 increased 0.2% compared to the prior year period.

Premium and service revenues in our managed care risk platform for the first six months of fiscal 2015, excluding the effect of $7.6 million of revenue associated with the federal health insurer fee, increased 30.4% compared to the prior year period.

Since the January 1, 2014, effective date of Medicaid expansion, enrollment in our Arizona Medicaid plan has grown approximately 23.1%, which has created a shift in the mix of lives, including newly enrolled childless adult members that have resulted in increased medical costs. For the first six months of fiscal 2015, the MLR associated with premium revenue across all health plans in the Company’s managed care risk platform was 87.4%, compared to 85.0% in the same prior year period. Despite the increased MLR for the first six months of fiscal 2015, the Company has experienced reductions in medical costs resulting from the effective care management of the childless adult members newly enrolled during fiscal 2014. The MLR for this population declined approximately 810 bps during the first six months of fiscal 2015, compared to the period beginning January 1, 2014 through September 30, 2014, the period most effected by the growth of newly enrolled childless adults and the related increase in medical utilization. In addition, the MLR for the Company’s Arizona Medicaid plan declined approximately 480 bps in the first six months of fiscal 2015, compared to the MLR for the period from January 1, 2014 through September 30, 2014.

Adjusted EBITDA represents net earnings from continuing operations before net interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, stock-based compensation, net gain (loss) on disposal of assets, and management fees. Management fees represent monitoring and advisory fees paid to management companies affiliated with TPG and JLL. Management routinely calculates and communicates adjusted EBITDA and believes that it is useful to investors because it is commonly used as an analytical indicator within the healthcare industry to evaluate performance, allocate resources and measure leverage capacity and debt service ability. In addition, the Company uses adjusted EBITDA as a measure of performance for its business segments and for incentive compensation purposes. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles, and the items excluded from adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net earnings, 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. Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, differs from “adjusted EBITDA” as defined under the Company’s Senior Secured Credit Facilities and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. A table describing adjusted EBITDA and reconciling net earnings from continuing operations to adjusted EBITDA is included in this press release in the attached Supplemental Consolidated Statements of Operations Information.
