First Quarter 2015 Financial Results

“This quarter’s overall results are consistent with our expectations and in line with our full year financial guidance,” stated Tom Tomlinson, Chief Executive Officer and President of Alliance HealthCare Services. “Driven primarily by strong revenue growth in our oncology business, which is up +17% over the same quarter last year, the positive revenue trend is noteworthy as we continue gaining traction with our growth strategies. Alliance Oncology’s double-digit growth rate continues to trend upward as a result of revenue generated from new partnerships with the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and the Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC). Same-store volumes in oncology were mixed in the first quarter of 2015 when compared to the same quarter last year with stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) volumes up +4.2% and linear accelerator (linac) volumes down (7.3%).”

Tomlinson continued, “In our Alliance Radiology business, revenue in the first quarter of 2015 trailed revenue for the same period last year by (3%) as we continued to strategically and aggressively compete on price to protect and maintain market share in a highly competitive mobile imaging market. Within our RAD360 strategy, at the end of the quarter we added a new diagnostic imaging center into an existing Joint Venture with one of our hospital partners. And, although January and February scan volumes were impacted by severe weather throughout the Northeast, volumes rebounded in March and overall Q1 same-store volumes showed significant improvement over Q1 last year, with MRI same-store volumes up +7.4% and PET/CT volumes up +3.4%.”

Revenue for the first quarter of 2015 was $109.4 million compared to $105.4 million in the first quarter of 2014. Impacting revenue this quarter was approximately $4.1 million of radiology pricing pressure. Oncology Division revenue grew by 17% in the first quarter of 2015, to $24.2 million, from $20.7 million in the first quarter of 2014. The increase is largely due to the revenue generated by the recent acquisition of Charleston Area Radiation Therapy Centers and from Alliance Oncology’s relationship with the Medical University of South Carolina.

Alliance’s Adjusted EBITDA decreased 8.6% to $30.1 million from $33.0 million in the first quarter of 2014. Also impacting first quarter Adjusted EBITDA was the aforementioned radiology pricing pressure of $4.1 million.

Alliance’s net income, computed in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), totaled $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2015 and $1.9 million in the first quarter of 2014.

Alliance’s historical income tax rate has been 42%, compared to the GAAP income tax rate of 47.3% in the first quarter of 2015 and 43.8% in the first quarter of 2014.

Net income on a diluted basis, computed in accordance with GAAP, was $0.16 per share in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $0.18 per share for same quarter of 2014. Net income per share on a diluted basis was impacted by ($0.14) in the first quarter of 2015 and ($0.10) in the first quarter of 2014 in the aggregate due to restructuring charges, transaction costs, legal matter expenses and differences in the GAAP income tax rate from our historical income tax rate.

Cash flows provided by operating activities totaled $20.8 million in the first quarter of 2015 compared to $19.0 million in the first quarter of 2014. In the first quarter of 2015, total capital expenditures were $11.9 million ($7.6 million in cash capital expenditures and $4.3 million in equipment financed under debt arrangements) compared to $5.7 million in the first quarter of 2014.

In the first quarter of 2015, growth capital expenditures were $7.7 million, and maintenance capital expenditures were $4.2 million.

Alliance's net debt, defined as total long-term debt (including current maturities) less cash and cash equivalents, increased $28.5 million to $502.8 million at March 31, 2015 from $474.3 million at December 31, 2014. Cash and cash equivalents were $31.5 million at March 31, 2015 and $33.0 million at December 31, 2014. The Company's net debt, as defined above, divided by the last twelve months Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was 3.53x for the twelve month period ended March 31, 2015 compared to 3.34x for the twelve month period ended a year ago. The Company's total debt, as defined above, divided by the last twelve months Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was 3.75x for the twelve month period ended March 31, 2015 compared to 3.54x for the twelve month period ended a year ago.

In the first quarter of 2015, the Company used $23.6 million in cash by drawing $23.0 million under its revolving line of credit, and assumed $2.8 million of debt in connection with the acquisition of The Pain Center of Arizona, PC (TPC)—Arizona’s center of excellence for the diagnosis and treatment of people with chronic pain disorders with 12 locations statewide—along with TPC’s affiliated billing and collection company.

Alliance’s decrease in net debt, before investments in acquisitions and before growth capital expenditures, was $2.8 million in the first quarter of 2015. The Company’s increase in net debt, before investments in acquisitions and after growth capital expenditures, was $5.0 million in the first quarter of 2015.

“Also this quarter, we completed our acquisition of The Pain Center of Arizona, which added $3.9 million to our Q1 revenues,” commented Tomlinson. “As we continue to build our Interventional Services Division—both organically and through the addition of one or two more acquisitions this year—we anticipate expanding our service footprint and adding additional revenue over the next quarters.”

NON-GAAP MEASURES
(in thousands)

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Net Income Per Share (the “Non-GAAP Measures”) are not measures of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or “GAAP.”

Adjusted EBITDA, as defined by the Company’s management, represents net income (loss) before: interest expense, net of interest income; income taxes; depreciation expense; amortization expense; net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests; non-cash share-based compensation; severance and related costs; restructuring charges; fees and expenses related to acquisitions, costs related to debt financing, legal matter expenses, non-cash impairment charges, and other non-cash charges included in other (income) expense, net, which includes non-cash losses on sales of equipment. The components used to reconcile net income (loss) to Adjusted EBITDA are consistent with our historical presentation of Adjusted EBITDA.

Adjusted Net Income Per Share, as defined by the Company’s management, represents net income (loss) before: restructuring charges; fees and expenses related to acquisitions; legal matter expenses; and differences in the GAAP income tax rate compared to our historical income tax rate. The components used to reconcile net income (loss) per share to Adjusted Net Income Per Share are consistent with our historical presentation of Adjusted Net Income Per Share.

Management uses the Non-GAAP Measures, and believes they are useful measures for investors, for a variety of reasons. Management regularly communicates the results of its Non-GAAP Measures and management’s interpretation of such results to its board of directors. Management also compares the Company’s results of its Non-GAAP Measures against internal targets as a key factor in determining cash incentive compensation for executives and other employees, largely because management feels that these measures are indicative of how our diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology businesses are performing and are being managed. The diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology industry continues to experience significant consolidation. These activities have led to significant charges to earnings, such as those resulting from acquisition costs, and to significant variations among companies with respect to capital structures and cost of capital (which affect interest expense) and differences in taxation and book depreciation of facilities and equipment (which affect relative depreciation expense), including significant differences in the depreciable lives of similar assets among various companies. In addition, management believes that because of the variety of equity awards used by companies, the varying methodologies for determining non-cash share-based compensation expense among companies and from period to period, and the subjective assumptions involved in that determination, excluding non-cash share-based compensation from Adjusted EBITDA enhances company-to-company comparisons over multiple fiscal periods and enhances the Company’s ability to analyze the performance of its diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology businesses.

In the future, the Company expects that it may incur expenses similar to the excluded items discussed above. Accordingly, the exclusion of these and other similar items in the Company’s non-GAAP presentation should not be interpreted as implying that these items are non-recurring, infrequent or unusual. The Non-GAAP Measures have certain limitations as analytical financial measures, which management compensates for by relying on the Company’s GAAP results to evaluate its operating performance and by considering independently the economic effects of the items that are or are not reflected in the Non-GAAP Measures. Management also compensates for these limitations by providing GAAP-based disclosures concerning the excluded items in the Company’s financial disclosures. As a result of these limitations and because the Non-GAAP Measures may not be directly comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies, however, the Non-GAAP Measures should not be considered as an alternative to the most directly comparable GAAP measure, or as an alternative to any other GAAP measure of operating performance.

SELECTED STATISTICAL INFORMATION
SAME STORE VOLUME

The Company utilizes same store volume growth as a historical statistical measure of the MRI and PET/CT imaging procedure, linear accelerator treatment and SRS case growth at its customers in a specified period on a year-over-year basis. Same store volume growth is calculated by comparing the cumulative scan, treatment or case volume at all locations in the current year quarter to the same quarter in the prior year. The group of customers whose volume is included in the scan or treatment volume totals is those that received service from Alliance for the full quarter in each of the comparison periods. A positive percentage represents growth over the prior year quarter and a negative percentage represents a decline over the prior year period. Alliance measures each of its major imaging and oncology modalities, MRI, PET/CT, linear accelerator and SRS, separately.
