James Lindstrom, Chief Executive Officer, stated, “I am pleased to report on our fourth quarter results, particularly within our U.S. Healthcare Service businesses, which encompasses our NET Services and Matrix Investment segments.  Looking forward, our focus over the last twelve months on strengthening Matrix’s sales capabilities improves our outlook for growth.  Next, LogistiCare’s Member Experience initiative is building the foundation for improved outcomes and lower costs and is expected to generate service enhancements and numerous efficiencies across our expansive nationwide network beginning in late 2017 and into 2018.  Lastly, in our WD Services segment, despite contract challenges within our offender rehabilitation program, we are pleased by the progress made on the business development front (including the UK Work and Health program), the rollout of the Ingeus Futures initiative, and improved profitability in Mission Providence.”

As previously reported, on October 19, 2016, Frazier Healthcare Partners subscribed for a 53.2% equity interest in Matrix Medical Network (“Matrix” and the “Matrix Transaction”).  For all periods prior to the Matrix Transaction, Matrix’s results are reported in Discontinued Operations under the HA Services segment.  For all periods subsequent to the Matrix Transaction, Providence’s retained 46.8% equity interest is accounted for as an equity method investment within the Matrix Investment segment within continuing operations.  Matrix’s results are not included within the Company’s Adjusted EBITDA or Adjusted Net Income for any periods presented.

Segment Results

For analysis purposes, the Company provides revenue, expenses, operating income (loss), income (loss) from continuing operations, net of taxes, and Adjusted EBITDA on a segment basis.  Segment results include revenue and expenses incurred by each segment, as well as an allocation of direct expenses incurred by Corporate on behalf of the segment.  No direct expenses were incurred by Corporate on behalf of the Matrix Investment segment.  Indirect expenses, including unallocated corporate functions and expenses, such as executive, accounting, finance, human resources, information technology and legal, as well as the results of our captive insurance company and elimination entries recorded in consolidation, are reflected in Corporate and Other.  Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company began excluding third-party consulting and implementation expenses related to the Ingeus Futures and the LogistiCare Member Experience initiatives in the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income, and Adjusted EPS.  The Company has updated all periods presented to incorporate and reflect these changes, as applicable.

NET Services

NET Services revenue was $316.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2016, an increase of 12.9% from $280.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.  Operating income was $23.6 million, or 7.4% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to $17.3 million, or 6.2% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2015.  Included in NET Services operating income in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $1.7 million of restructuring and related charges, comprised of $0.9 million in employee separation costs related to the departure of a former CEO and $0.8 million of third-party consulting and implementation costs related to the LogistiCare Member Experience initiative.  NET Services Adjusted EBITDA was $28.8 million, or 9.1% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to $19.7 million, or 7.0% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2015.

NET Services revenue was $1,234.4 million for the year ended December 31, of 2016, an increase of 14.0% from $1,083.0 million in the comparable period of 2015.  Operating income was $77.1 million, or 6.2% of revenue, for the year ended December 31, 2016, compared to $71.2 million, or 6.6% of revenue, for the year ended December 31, 2015.  Included in NET Services operating income in 2016 was $2.9 million of restructuring and related charges, comprised of $0.9 million in employee separation costs related to the departure of a former CEO and $2.0 million of third-party consulting and implementation costs related to the LogistiCare Member Experience initiative.  NET Services Adjusted EBITDA was $92.4 million, or 7.5% of revenue, for the year ended December 31, 2016, compared to $80.7 million, or 7.4% of revenue, in the comparable period of 2015.

The increase in NET Services revenue in 2016 was primarily due to the net positive impact of membership and rate changes associated with existing contracts and the impact of new contracts.

WD Services

WD Services revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $69.1 million, a decrease of 25.5% compared to the fourth quarter of 2015.  Excluding the effects of changes in currency exchange rates, revenue declined 15.6% in the fourth quarter of 2016 versus the fourth quarter of 2015.  WD Services incurred an operating loss of $32.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to an operating loss of $37.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.  Included within WD Services operating loss in the fourth quarter of 2016 was an impairment charge of $19.6 million as well as $5.8 million in restructuring and related costs, comprised of $3.8 million of employee separation costs related to redundancy programs and $2.0 million of third-party consulting and implementation costs related to the Ingeus Futures initiative.  WD Services Adjusted EBITDA was negative $4.5 million, or negative 6.6% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to negative $3.8 million, or negative 4.0% of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2015.  Included in WD Services Adjusted EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $1.5 million of losses associated with the segment’s operations in France and $0.1 million of losses in geographies, including Sweden, that we are in the process of exiting.

Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2016 was $344.4 million, a decrease of 12.8% versus the comparable period of 2015.  Excluding the effects of changes in currency exchange rates, revenue declined 5.1% in the year ended December 31, 2016 versus the year ended December 31, 2015.  WD Services incurred an operating loss of $39.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2016, compared to an operating loss of $42.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2015.  Included within WD Services operating loss for the year ended December 31, 2016 was an impairment charge of $19.6 million as well as $11.5 million of restructuring and related costs, comprised of $9.0 million of employee separation costs related to redundancy programs and $2.6 million of third-party consulting and implementation costs related to the Ingeus Futures initiative.  WD Services Adjusted EBITDA was $5.5 million, or 1.6% of revenue, for the year ended December 31, 2016 as compared to $10.3 million, or 2.6% of revenue, for the year ended December 31, 2015.  Included in WD Services Adjusted EBITDA in 2016 was $5.0 million of losses associated with the segment’s operations in France and $0.6 million of losses in geographies, including Sweden, that we are in the process of exiting. 

The decrease in WD Services Adjusted EBITDA in 2016 was primarily due to declining referrals under the segment’s primary employability program in the UK as well as lower volumes and unfavorable volume mix shifts under the segment’s offender rehabilitation program.

Corporate and Other

Corporate and Other incurred a $7.0 million operating loss in the fourth quarter of 2016, compared to a $3.3 million operating loss in the fourth quarter of 2015.  The operating loss in the fourth quarter of 2016 included a $1.4 million impairment charge related to the sale of certain real estate assets.  Corporate and Other Adjusted EBITDA was negative $4.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 compared to negative $3.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.    

Corporate and Other incurred a $29.0 million operating loss for the year ended December 31, 2016, compared to a $27.0 million operating loss in the comparable period of 2015.  The operating loss in the fourth quarter of 2016 included a $1.4 million impairment charge related to the sale of certain real estate assets.  Corporate and Other Adjusted EBITDA was negative $25.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2016, compared to negative $24.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2015.  Included within Corporate and Other Adjusted EBITDA in 2015 and 2016 is $1.4 million and $3.3 million, respectively, of expense related to a share-based long-term incentive plan.  The amount of expense being recognized under this plan is contingent upon the Company’s 90-day volume weighted average share price as of December 31, 2017 equaling approximately $65.00.  No shares will be awarded under this plan unless the Company’s 90-day volume weighted average share price as of December 31, 2017 exceeds $56.79. 

The increase in corporate costs in 2016 versus the prior-year period was primarily due to a decrease in benefits associated with favorable claims experiences on our reinsurance and self-insured programs, partially offset by a decrease in various professional fees.

Matrix Investment

As a result of the Matrix Transaction, Providence holds a 46.8% equity interest in Matrix and accounts for this interest under the equity method of accounting.  For the year ended December 31, 2016, Providence recorded a loss in equity earnings of $1.8 million related to its Matrix Investment.  Matrix’s results are not included within the Company’s revenue, operating income, Adjusted EBITDA, or Adjusted Net Income in any periods presented.  Also as a result of the Matrix Transaction, Matrix’s balance sheet is no longer consolidated with Providence’s balance sheet.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures and Adjustments

In addition to the financial results prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release includes EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for the Company and its operating segments, and Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS for the Company, which are performance measures that are not recognized under GAAP.  EBITDA is defined as income (loss) from continuing operations, net of taxes, before: (1) interest expense, net, (2) provision (benefit) for income taxes and (3) depreciation and amortization. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as EBITDA before certain items, including: (1) asset impairment charges, (2) restructuring and related charges, (3) foreign currency adjustments, (4) equity in net earnings or losses of investees, (5) certain litigation related expenses, (6) expenses related to restricted shares and cash placed into escrow at the time of the Ingeus acquisition, (7) contingent consideration adjustments, and (8) certain transaction related expenses.  Adjusted Net Income is defined as income or loss from continuing operations, net of tax, before certain items, including (1) asset impairment charges, (2) restructuring and related charges, (3) foreign currency adjustments, (4) equity in net earnings or losses of investees, (5) certain litigation related expenses, (6) expenses related to restricted shares and cash placed into escrow at the time of the Ingeus acquisition, (7) contingent consideration adjustments, (8) certain transaction related expenses, (9) intangible amortization expense, and (10) the income tax impact of such adjustments.  Adjusted EPS is calculated as Adjusted Net Income less (as applicable): (1) dividends on convertible preferred stock, (2) accretion of convertible preferred stock discount, and (3) income allocated to participating stockholders, divided by the diluted weighted-average number of common shares outstanding.  We utilize these non-GAAP performance measures, which exclude certain expenses and amounts, because we believe the timing of such expenses is unpredictable and not driven by our core operating results, and therefore render comparisons with prior periods as well as with other companies in our industry less meaningful.  We believe such measures allow investors to gain a better understanding of the factors and trends affecting the ongoing operations of our business.  We consider our core operations to be the ongoing activities to provide services from which we earn revenue, including direct operating costs and indirect costs to support these activities.  In addition, our net earnings in equity investees are excluded from these measures, as we do not have the ability to manage these ventures, allocate resources within the ventures, or directly control their operations or performance.  

Our non-GAAP financial measures may not provide information that is directly comparable to that provided by other companies in our industry, as other companies in our industry may calculate non-GAAP financial results differently. In addition, there are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because they are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, and exclude expenses that may have a material impact on our reported financial results. The presentation of non-GAAP financial information is not meant to be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for the directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.  We urge you to review the reconciliations of our non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures included below, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business.

 (1) Restructuring and related charges are comprised of employee separation costs as well as third-party consulting and implementation costs related to WD Services' Ingeus Futures initiative and NET Services' Logisticare Member Experience initiative.  Beginning in the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company began excluding third-party consulting and implementation costs related to the Ingeus Futures and Logisticare Member Experience initiative in the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA.  Restructuring and related charges have been excluded in the calculation of Adjusted Net Income as these costs do not reflect expected ongoing future operating expenses and do not contribute to the meaningful evaluation of the Company's current operating performance or comparisons of the Company's operating performance in other periods.  See the above Segment Information and Adjusted EBITDA tables for a detailed breakdown of the restructuring and related charges for each time period presented.
 (2) WD Services adjustments include expenses related to restricted shares and cash placed into escrow at the time of the Ingeus acquisition and other acquisition related costs, losses on foreign currency transactions, and contingent consideration adjustments.  See the above Segment Information and Adjusted EBITDA tables for a detailed breakdown of the WD Services adjustments for each time period presented.
 (3) Litigation expense related to defense cost for a putative stockholder class action derivative complaint, which is more fully described in the Company's 10-K.
