Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Highlights

Cash flow generated from operations for the quarter was $17.2 million compared to $12.8 million generated in the prior year and $5.4 million used in the prior quarter, driven by strong collections and the timing of disbursements.

As of March 31, 2020, the Company had $12.6 million in cash and cash equivalents. The Company had $67.6 million of borrowings drawn under its senior secured asset-based credit facility (ABL), and $19.6 million of letters of credit outstanding. Availability under the ABL is subject to a borrowing base, which was $119.0 million as of March 31, 2020.

COVID-19 Impacts and Outlook

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the impact COVID-19 may have on its business, the Company is not issuing guidance for the second quarter of 2020. Since late in the first quarter, the Company has experienced both positive and negative impacts on its business including a significant number of crisis assignments as well as the cancellation of non-COVID-19 assignments by certain facilities due to low census and deferred elective procedures. Additionally, since mid-March 2020 schools have remained closed and, as a result, the Company is experiencing sharp declines in revenue from its education business, that are being partially offset by teletherapy services for the same clients. Overall, demand remains volatile, as orders initially surged due to the crisis needs, and have since trended downward as clients have reduced their contingent labor based on their unique situations.

While the impact on the first quarter was not considered significant for the Company, indications are that the second quarter’s results will be subject to more volatility. Due to the uncertainty across the healthcare industry, the Company is unable to predict the overall impact on its business for the second quarter. The Company is proactively working with its clients to address their crisis needs, as well as planning for the recovery of normal operations for its clients.

(a)

 

Acquisition and integration-related costs include costs for prior acquisitions, costs incurred for potential transactions, and accretion and valuation adjustments on our contingent consideration liability related to the Mediscan acquisition.

(b)

 

Restructuring costs are primarily comprised of employee termination costs, lease-related exit costs, and reorganization costs as part of our planned cost savings initiatives.

(c)

 

Loss on early extinguishment of debt for the three months ended December 31, 2019 represents write-off and extinguishment costs of $1.5 million related to the refinancing of our debt, and for the three months ended March 31, 2019 represents the write-off of debt issuance costs of $0.4 million related to an optional prepayment on our prior term loan and an optional reduction in borrowing capacity under our prior revolving credit facility.

(d)

 

Due to the net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, and December 31, 2019, 455, 97, and 472 shares (in thousands) were excluded from diluted weighted average shares.

(e)

 

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) financial measure, is defined as net (loss) income attributable to common shareholders before interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, acquisition-related contingent consideration, acquisition and integration costs, restructuring costs, legal settlement charges, impairment charges, gain or loss on derivative, loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain or loss on sale of business, other expense (income), net, equity compensation, applicant tracking system costs, and includes net income attributable to noncontrolling interest in subsidiary. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Management presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful supplement to net income attributable to common shareholders as an indicator of operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes and as one performance measure in its incentive programs for certain members of its management team. Adjusted EBITDA, as defined, closely matches the operating measure typically used in the Company's credit facilities in calculating various ratios. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by the Company's consolidated revenue.

(f)

 

Applicant tracking system costs are related to the Company's project to replace its legacy system supporting its travel nurse staffing business. These costs are reported in selling, general and administrative expenses on the consolidated statement of operations and included in corporate overhead in segment data.

(g)

 

Adjusted EPS, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net (loss) income attributable to common shareholders per diluted share before the diluted EPS impact of acquisition-related contingent consideration, acquisition and integration costs, restructuring costs, legal settlement charges, impairment charges, rebranding impairments and accelerated amortization, gain or loss on derivative, loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain or loss on sale of business, applicant tracking system costs, and nonrecurring income tax adjustments. Adjusted EPS should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Management presents Adjusted EPS because it believes that Adjusted EPS is a useful supplement to its reported EPS as an indicator of operating performance. Management believes it provides a more useful comparison of the Company's underlying business performance from period to period and is more representative of the future earnings capacity of the Company.

(h)

 

Rebranding impairments and accelerated amortization represents the combined impact of impairment of the Nurse and Allied Staffing indefinite-lived trade names as well as accelerated amortization of finite-lived trade names relating to our rebranding initiatives.

(i)

 

Segment data provided is in accordance with the Segment Reporting Topic of the FASB ASC. In the second quarter of 2019, the Company merged its permanent search recruitment brands. As a result, certain amounts have been reclassified from Nurse and Allied Staffing to Search to conform to the current year presentation.

(j)

 

Contribution income is defined as income or loss from operations before depreciation and amortization, acquisition-related contingent consideration, acquisition and integration costs, restructuring costs, legal settlement charges, impairment charges, and corporate overhead. Contribution income is a financial measure used by management when assessing segment performance.

(k)

 

Corporate overhead includes unallocated executive leadership and other centralized corporate functional support costs such as finance, IT, legal, human resources, and marketing, as well as public company expenses and corporate-wide projects (initiatives).

(l)

 

Gross profit is defined as revenue from services less direct operating expenses. The Company's gross profit excludes allocated depreciation and amortization expense. Gross profit margin is calculated by dividing gross profit by revenue from services.

(m)

 

FTEs represent the average number of Nurse and Allied Staffing contract personnel on a full-time equivalent basis.

(n)

 

Average revenue per FTE per day is calculated by dividing the Nurse and Allied Staffing revenue per FTE by the number of days worked in the respective periods. Nurse and Allied Staffing revenue also includes revenue from the permanent placement of nurses. Prior periods have been recalculated to reflect the impact of the segment reporting changes noted above.

(o)

 

Days filled is calculated by dividing the total hours invoiced during the period, including an estimate for the impact of accrued revenue, by 8 hours.

(p)

 

Revenue per day filled is calculated by dividing revenue as reported by days filled for the period presented.
