CARES Act Provider Relief Fund

On March 27, 2020 , the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act ("CARES Act") was enacted. The CARES Act provided additional waivers, reimbursement, grants and other funds to assist health care providers during the COVID-19 pandemic, including $100.0 billion in appropriations for the Public Health and Social Services Emergency Fund, also referred to as the Provider Relief Fund, to be used for preventing, preparing, and responding to the coronavirus, and for reimbursing eligible health care providers for lost revenues and health care related expenses that are attributable to COVID-19.

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, Select Medical recognized payments received under the Provider Relief Fund for loss of revenue and health care related expenses attributable to COVID-19 as other operating income.

Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic on Select Medical's Results of Operations

The continuing implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on Select Medical's results of operations and overall financial performance remain uncertain. Select Medical has provided net operating revenues and certain operating statistics to assist readers in understanding how the COVID-19 pandemic impacted each of its segments during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020.

Critical Illness Recovery Hospital Segment.   Select Medical's critical illness recovery hospitals are a key component of the inpatient hospital continuum of care. Both the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services ("CMS") and Congress acted to temporarily suspend certain regulations concerning length of stay requirements, which apply to Select Medical's critical illness recovery hospitals, in order to facilitate the transfer of patients from general acute care hospitals. This was done in order to expand hospital bed capacity to care for COVID-19 patients. COVID-19 has been prevalent in certain markets that Select Medical serves; as a result, Select Medical's critical illness recovery hospitals have admitted patients with COVID-19 and have faced the challenging task of treating those patients while also taking measures to protect their patients and staff members who do not have COVID-19. The pandemic has caused, and may continue to cause, disruptions in Select Medical's critical illness recovery hospitals, which include, in some cases, the addition or reduction of beds, the creation of isolated units and spaces, temporary increases or restrictions on admissions, the incurrence of additional costs, staff illnesses, and the increased use of contract clinical labor.

The following table shows the trend in net operating revenues, patient day volume, and occupancy rates for each of the periods presented, as well as the number of critical illness recovery hospitals Select Medical owned at the end of each period.

This was done in order to expand hospital bed capacity to care for COVID-19 patients.

At the beginning of the pandemic, elective surgeries at hospitals and other facilities were suspended, which reduced the need for inpatient rehabilitation services.

Outpatient Rehabilitation Segment. Beginning in mid-March, state governments began implementing mandatory closures of non-essential or non-life sustaining businesses, restricting travel and individual activities outside of the home, closing schools, and mandating other social distancing measures. Additionally, hospitals and other facilities began to suspend elective surgeries. As a result, Select Medical's outpatient rehabilitation clinics experienced significantly less patient visit volume due to a decline in patient referrals from physicians, a reduction in workers' compensation injury visits resulting from the temporary closure of businesses, and the suspension of elective surgeries which would have required outpatient rehabilitation services. Beginning in May, state governments began to ease restrictions imposed on individuals and businesses. Further, most physician offices have reopened for routine office visits and hospitals and other facilities have begun to perform elective surgeries again, which has since increased the need for services provided by Select Medical's outpatient rehabilitation clinics.

Beginning in mid-March, state governments began placing significant restrictions on businesses and mandating closures of non-essential or non-life sustaining businesses, causing many employers to furlough their workforce and temporarily cease or significantly reduce their operations. These actions have had significant effects on Select Medical's patient visit volumes. Beginning in May, state governments began to ease restrictions imposed on businesses and employers began to increase their workforce, which has since resulted in an increased need for occupational health services.

The following table shows the trend in net operating revenues and patient visit volume for each of the periods presented, as well as the number of working days for each period.

Stock Repurchase Program

The board of directors of Select Medical has authorized a common stock repurchase program to repurchase up to $500.0 million worth of shares of its common stock. The program has been extended until December 31, 2021, and will remain in effect until then, unless further extended or earlier terminated by the board of directors. Stock repurchases under this program may be made in the open market or through privately negotiated transactions, and at times and in such amounts as Select Medical deems appropriate. Select Medical funds this program with cash on hand and borrowings under its revolving credit facility.

Select Medical did not repurchase shares during the quarter ended September 30, 2020. Since the inception of the program through September 30, 2020, Select Medical has repurchased 38,580,908 shares at a cost of approximately $356.6 million, or $9.24 per share, which includes transaction costs.

Business Outlook

Select Medical is issuing an updated business outlook following the reporting of its third quarter 2020 results. Select Medical now expects for the full year of 2020 consolidated net operating revenues to be in the range of $5.44 billion to $5.50 billion and Adjusted EBITDA for the full year of 2020 to be in the range of $745.0 million to $765.0 million. Select Medical now expects fully diluted earnings per common share for the full year 2020 to be in the range of $1.65 to $1.75 and adjusted earnings per common share for the full year 2020 to be in the range of $1.61 to $1.71. Adjusted earnings per common share excludes the gains on sales of businesses and their related tax effects. Reconciliations of net income to Adjusted EBITDA and diluted earnings per common share to adjusted earnings per common share for the full year of 2020 are presented in table XI of this release.

Certain statements contained herein that are not descriptions of historical facts are "forward-looking" statements (as such term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995). Because such statements include risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements due to factors including the following:

  • developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic including, but not limited to, the duration and severity of the pandemic, additional measures taken by government authorities and the private sector to limit the spread of COVID-19, and further legislative and regulatory actions which impact healthcare providers, including actions that may impact the Medicare program;

  • changes in government reimbursement for our services and/or new payment policies may result in a reduction in net operating revenues, an increase in costs, and a reduction in profitability;

  • the failure of our Medicare-certified long term care hospitals or inpatient rehabilitation facilities to maintain their Medicare certifications may cause our net operating revenues and profitability to decline;

  • the failure of our Medicare-certified long term care hospitals and inpatient rehabilitation facilities operated as "hospitals within hospitals" to qualify as hospitals separate from their host hospitals may cause our net operating revenues and profitability to decline;

  • a government investigation or assertion that we have violated applicable regulations may result in sanctions or reputational harm and increased costs;

  • acquisitions or joint ventures may prove difficult or unsuccessful, use significant resources or expose us to unforeseen liabilities;

  • our plans and expectations related to our acquisitions and our ability to realize anticipated synergies;

  • private third-party payors for our services may adopt payment policies that could limit our future net operating revenues and profitability;

  • the failure to maintain established relationships with the physicians in the areas we serve could reduce our net operating revenues and profitability;

  • shortages in qualified nurses, therapists, physicians, or other licensed providers, or the inability to attract or retain healthcare professionals due to the heightened risk of infection related to the COVID-19 pandemic, could increase our operating costs significantly or limit our ability to staff our facilities;

  • competition may limit our ability to grow and result in a decrease in our net operating revenues and profitability;

  • the loss of key members of our management team could significantly disrupt our operations;

  • the effect of claims asserted against us could subject us to substantial uninsured liabilities;

  • a security breach of our or our third-party vendors' information technology systems may subject us to potential legal and reputational harm and may result in a violation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 or the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act; and

  • other factors discussed from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), including factors discussed under the heading "Risk Factors" of the quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and of the annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019.

Except as required by applicable law, including the securities laws of the United States and the rules and regulations of the SEC, we are under no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of any new information, future events, or otherwise. You should not place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements.

III. Earnings per Share

For the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019 and 2020

(In thousands, except per share amounts, unaudited)


Select Medical's capital structure includes common stock and unvested restricted stock awards. To compute earnings per share ("EPS"), Select Medical applies the two-class method because its unvested restricted stock awards are participating securities which are entitled to participate equally with its common stock in undistributed earnings.


The following table sets forth the net income attributable to Select Medical, its common shares outstanding, and its participating securities outstanding for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2020:

IX. Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliation

For the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019 and 2020

(In thousands, unaudited)


The presentation of Adjusted EBITDA is important to investors because Adjusted EBITDA is commonly used as an analytical indicator of performance by investors within the healthcare industry. Adjusted EBITDA is used to evaluate financial performance and determine resource allocation for each of Select Medical's operating segments. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). 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, or substitute for, net income, income from operations, cash flows generated by operations, investing or financing activities, or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as indicators of financial performance or liquidity. Because Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and is thus susceptible to varying definitions, Adjusted EBITDA as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.


The following table reconciles net income to Adjusted EBITDA for Select Medical. Adjusted EBITDA is used by Select Medical to report its segment performance. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings excluding interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, gain (loss) on early retirement of debt, stock compensation expense, gain (loss) on sale of businesses, and equity in earnings (losses) of unconsolidated subsidiaries.

X. Reconciliation of Earnings per Common Share to Adjusted Earnings per Common Share

For the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2019 and 2020

(In thousands, except per share amounts, unaudited)


Adjusted net income attributable to common shares and adjusted earnings per common share are not measures of financial performance under GAAP. Items excluded from adjusted net income attributable to common shares and adjusted earnings per common share are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Select Medical believes that the presentation of adjusted net income attributable to common shares and adjusted earnings per common share are important to investors because they are reflective of the financial performance of Select Medical's ongoing operations and provide better comparability of its results of operations between periods. Adjusted net income attributable to common shares and adjusted earnings per common share should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to, or substitutes for, net income, cash flows generated by operations, investing or financing activities, or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as indicators of financial performance or liquidity. Because adjusted net income attributable to common shares and adjusted earnings per common share are not measurements determined in accordance with GAAP and are thus susceptible to varying calculations, adjusted net income attributable to common shares and adjusted earnings per common share as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.


The following tables reconcile net income attributable to common shares and earnings per common share on a fully diluted basis to adjusted net income attributable to common shares and adjusted earnings per common share on a fully diluted basis.

______________________________________________________________________________

(a)

Net income attributable to common shares and earnings per common share are calculated based on the diluted weighted average common shares outstanding, as presented in table III.



(b)

Adjustments to net income attributable to common shares include estimated income tax and non-controlling interest impacts and are calculated based on the diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.




The estimated income tax impact, which is determined using tax rates based on the nature of the adjustment and the jurisdiction in which the adjustment occurred, includes both current and deferred income tax expense or benefit.




For the three months ended September 30, 2019, the adjustments to net income attributable to common shares include an estimated income tax benefit of approximately $5.9 million. For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the adjustments to net income attributable to common shares include an estimated income tax benefit of approximately $0.2 million.




For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the adjustments to net income attributable to common shares include an estimated income tax benefit of approximately $4.0 million. For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the adjustments to net income attributable to common shares include estimated income tax expense of approximately $3.3 million.



(c)

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the loss on early retirement of debt and related costs adjustment includes expenses related to the amendment to the Select credit agreement, the amendment to the Concentra-JPM first lien credit agreement, the repayment of term loans outstanding under the Concentra-JPM second lien credit agreement, and the redemption of the 6.375% senior notes.




The redemption of the 6.375% senior notes occurred on August 30, 2019, while the issuance of the $550.0 million 6.250% senior notes occurred on August 1, 2019. As a result, Select Medical recognized interest expense on both the 6.250% senior notes and the 6.375% senior notes during August 2019. The adjustment to net income attributable to common shares for the loss on early retirement of debt and related costs includes the interest expense recognized on the 6.375% senior notes during August 2019 and its related tax effects.
