Announces Retirement of Robert A. Waegelein, President & CFO

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.--()--Universal American Corp. (NYSE:UAM) today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2015.

Results of First Quarter 2015

Universal American’s reported net income for the first quarter of 2015 was $2.2 million, or $0.03 per share. Adjusted net income for the first quarter of 2015 was $3.6 million, or $0.04 per share, which excludes the following after-tax items:

  • $5.3 million, or $0.06 per share, of tax benefits;
  • $1.2 million, or $0.01 per share, of non-recurring expenses primarily related to legal and settlement costs; and
  • $5.5 million, or $0.06 per share, of expenses associated with our investment in our Accountable Care Organization (ACO) business.

Total revenues for the first quarter of 2015 were approximately $445 million.

Management Comments

Richard A. Barasch, Chairman and CEO, commented, “Entering 2015, we reset our Medicare Advantage business to concentrate on those regions where we have a meaningful market position and can positively impact the quality and cost of healthcare. Approximately 86% of our members are in plans with 4 Stars and we remain committed to enhancing the quality of our plans.

“The most noteworthy achievement in our Medicare Advantage results is the reduction in our administrative expense ratio to 9.7% in the first quarter of 2015. Given the seasonality of expenses, we expect the full year expense ratio to be approximately 10.5%, consistent with the target we set going into 2015.

“We continued to expand our market leadership in the growing Houston/Beaumont region. Our membership increased over 10% for the third straight year, largely as a result of the continued success of our partnerships with primary care physicians. We have a successful 15 year history of working closely with our physician partners to improve quality and reduce cost for Medicare beneficiaries.

“In the Northeast, especially central New York, we are in the process of converting a fee-for-service market into a more value-based system by introducing pay for performance to primary care physicians. We had a strong 2015 Annual Election Period, with 26% growth in membership, and combined with our Medicare Shared Savings ACO and our Total Care Medicaid plan, we are the largest sponsor of government programs in Central New York. The first quarter MBR results are largely a function of the anticipated uncertainty associated with absorbing substantial new membership and we project the ultimate MBR to be lower as we get a clearer picture of the revenue and claims behavior of this new membership.

“We are also optimistic about the Medicare Shared Savings ACO program, both under the existing rules and even more so if the ACO rule-making process removes certain weaknesses and offers ACOs more options to expand their risk taking. Our internal projections, based on CMS data, indicate that we should expect to receive shared savings revenue for the 2014 plan year in excess of the 2012-2013 plan years when the results are finally determined in the third quarter.”

Our current Medicare Advantage markets include our members in Texas, Upstate New York and Maine.

** Recast excludes the impact of prior period items reported in 1Q 2015.

 

The Medicare Advantage segment pre-tax operating income during the three month period ended March 31, 2015 was $9.0 million.

Our administrative expense ratio improved to 9.7%, compared to 11.1% for the same period in 2014 primarily as a result of our cost reduction efforts. Administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2015 decreased $10.0 million compared to the first quarter of 2014.

For the first quarter of 2015, the reported MBR in our Texas HMOs, excluding Quality Initiative (QI) expenses was 82.3%. Excluding positive prior period items, the MBR was 83.5% for the first quarter.

For the first quarter of 2015, the reported MBR in our Northeast markets, excluding Quality Initiative (QI) expenses, was 92.9%. Excluding negative prior period items, the MBR was 88.9% for the first quarter. As noted above, we project that the Northeast MBR will be lower in the balance of the year.

Pre-tax Operating Loss $ (11.7) $ (13.1)
 

The MSO segment includes our ACO business, which collaborates with physicians and other healthcare professionals to operate ACOs under the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP). We have 25 ACOs with approximately 292,000 beneficiaries as compared to 34 ACOs with 360,000 beneficiaries in the first quarter of 2014. During 2014, the Company exited certain ACOs where it determined that the MSSP could not work and the Company could not positively impact the quality and cost of healthcare. The operating losses in our MSO segment for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 decreased $1.4 million as a result of fewer ACOs than the same period in 2014. The Company expects to receive the final results from CMS of the 2014 performance year in the third quarter.

The Medicaid segment includes the Total Care health plan in Upstate New York with approximately 40,000 members. The pre-tax operating income for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 decreased $0.8 million from the same period in 2014 as a result of higher premiums from more members offset by a higher medical benefits ratio due to increased utilization. The medical benefits ratio was 89.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2015 compared with 88.5% for the three months ended March 31, 2014.

Revenue $ 49.3 $ 54.0
 
Pre-Tax Operating Income (Loss) $ 1.3 $ (0.1)

Revenue in our Traditional Insurance segment declined in the three-month period ended March 31, 2015 due to the continued run-off of our legacy insurance products, which we stopped marketing and selling after June 1, 2012. Net income increased in the three-month period ended March 31, 2015 due to decreased operating expenses, primarily consulting costs related to the transition and outsourcing of certain functions.

Corporate & Other includes the results of APS Healthcare and the operations of our parent holding company, including debt service. The decrease in revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 was due to the sale of APS Puerto Rico which closed on February 4, 2015.

Pre-Tax Operating (Loss) $ (5.7) $ (15.6)

Corporate expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 were lower than those in the comparable 2014 period due to corporate expense reduction initiatives and lower costs for legal and settlement costs.

APS Healthcare recorded higher pre-tax profits for the quarter ended March 31, 2015 compared to the comparable 2014 period due to shedding unprofitable contracts and expense reduction initiatives. On May 1, 2015, we consummated the sale of our remaining APS Healthcare operating subsidiaries to KEPRO, Inc., a company that provides quality improvement and care management services to both government clients and the private sector.

As previously disclosed, on February 4, 2015 we completed the sale of our APS Healthcare Puerto Rico subsidiaries to an affiliate of the Metro Pavia Health System. The purchase price at closing was $26.5 million and generated a foreign tax credit carry-forward of $5.4 million that has been recorded as a deferred tax asset.

Investment Portfolio

As of March 31, 2015, Universal American had $925 million of cash and invested assets as follows:

  • 24% is invested in U.S. Government and agency securities;
  • The average credit quality of the investment portfolio is AA-; and
  • Approximately 1% of the investment portfolio is non-investment grade.

A complete listing of our fixed income investment portfolio as of March 31, 2015 is available for review in the financial supplement located in the Investors – Financial Reports section of our website, www.UniversalAmerican.com.

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

As of March 31, 2015, Universal American’s Balance Sheet had the following characteristics:

  • Total cash and investments were $925 million and total assets were $1.9 billion;
  • Total policyholder liabilities were $1.1 billion and total liabilities were $1.3 billion;
  • Stockholders’ equity was $622.7 million and book value was $7.33 per diluted common share;

  • $40.0 million of mandatorily redeemable preferred stock, reported as a liability, with an annual dividend rate of 8.5%.

On March 31, 2015, we made a $55 million principal prepayment on our term loan. This prepayment fulfilled our obligation to use the proceeds from recent dispositions that were not reinvested and provides additional restricted payment flexibility under our 2012 Credit Facility.

As of March 31, 2015, the ratio of debt to total capital, excluding the effect of accumulated other comprehensive income and including Universal American’s mandatorily redeemable preferred stock as debt was 12.3%.

In April 2015, the Company received a net $66 million extraordinary dividend from its insurance subsidiary, Pyramid Life, as a result of its exit from Medicare Advantage markets. As of April 30, 2015, unregulated cash and investments was $125 million.

* Non-GAAP Financial Measures - See supplemental tables on the following pages of this release for a reconciliation of these items to financial measures calculated under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).
(1) The effective tax rate was 131.1% for the first quarter of 2015 compared to -153.2% for the first quarter of 2014. For the quarter ended March 31, 2015, the tax benefit was driven primarily by $5.4 million in foreign tax credit carryforwards created in connection with the February 2015 sale of APS Puerto Rico. Excluding the foreign tax credit carryforwards, the effective tax rate was 52.9%, which exceeds the statutory rate of 35% as a result of permanent items, including the non-deductible ACA Fee and non-deductible interest expense. For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, the tax effect of permanent items exceeded the tax effect of our loss from operations, resulting in income tax expense. Permanent items include the non-deductible ACA fee, non-deductible executive compensation and non-deductible interest expense. State and foreign income taxes also contributed to the variance in the effective tax rate.
(2) Diluted book value per common share (excluding AOCI) represents Total Stockholders’ Equity, excluding accumulated other comprehensive income (“AOCI”), plus assumed proceeds from the exercise of vested, in-the-money options, divided by the total shares outstanding plus the shares assumed issued from the exercise of vested, in-the-money options.
(3) Tangible book value per common share represents Total Stockholders’ Equity, excluding AOCI and intangible assets plus assumed proceeds from the exercise of vested, in-the-money options, divided by the total shares outstanding plus the shares assumed issued from the exercise of vested, in-the-money options.
(4) The Debt to Total Capital Ratio (excluding AOCI) is calculated as the ratio of the Mandatorily Redeemable Preferred Shares to the sum of Stockholders’ Equity (excluding AOCI) plus the Mandatorily Redeemable Preferred Shares.
(5) Adjusted net income (loss) is calculated as net income (loss) excluding the following items on after tax basis: ACO costs, net realized gains and losses, non-recurring tax benefits/expenses and other non-recurring items.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In millions, except per share amounts

(Unaudited)

 

Universal American uses both GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate the Company’s performance for the periods presented in this press release. You should not consider non-GAAP measures to be an alternative to measurements required by GAAP. Because Universal American’s calculation of these measures may differ from the calculation of similar measures used by other companies, investors should be careful when comparing Universal American’s non-GAAP financial measures to those of other companies. We have not included a reconciliation of projected earnings per diluted share because projections for some components of this reconciliation are not possible to forecast at this time. The key non-GAAP measures presented in our press release, including reconciliation to GAAP measures, are set forth below.

Universal American uses adjusted net income (loss), calculated as net income (loss) excluding ACO results after tax, net realized gains (losses) after-tax, non-recurring tax (benefit) expense and other non-recurring items after-tax as a basis for evaluating operating results. Although the excluded items may recur, we believe that the excluded items do not relate to the performance of Universal American’s core business operations and that adjusted net income (loss) provides a more useful comparison of our business performance from period to period.
