Fiscal Third Quarter 2022 Financial Highlights and Executive Leadership Update

  • Census increased 2.1% year-over-year to approximately 6,800.
  • Total revenues of $177.4 million, up 13.5% compared to $156.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, due to an increase in per member per month rates and census.
  • Center-level Contribution Margin of $28.0 million decreased 32.3% year-over-year.
  • Center-level Contribution Margin as a percent of revenue decreased 10.7 percentage points year-over-year to 15.8% due to (i) the impact of the recent Omicron surge, (ii) increased housing utilization, (iii) state-mandated housing rate increases, (iv) medical cost normalization, and (v) an increase in cost of care due to wage pressures, additional staffing, and other occupancy related expenses.
  • Net loss of $3.2 million compared to a net loss of $10.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021. Excluding the impact of the $19.2 million contingent consideration associated with the earnout payment for the NewCourtland acquisition recorded in the third quarter of fiscal 2021, the increase in net loss is due to the impact of medical costs on Center-level Contribution Margin and higher sales and administrative expenses, partially attributable to growth, compliance-related expense, organizational realignment, and costs associated with being a publicly traded company.
  • Net loss attributable to InnovAge Holding Corp. of $2.8 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared to a net loss attributable to InnovAge Holding Corp. of $10.5 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2021.
  • Adjusted EBITDA(1) of $1.9 million compared to $20.3 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2021.
  • Dr. Melissa Welch, InnovAge’s Chief Medical Officer (CMO), has announced her intent to pursue other opportunities. To ensure a smooth transition, Dr. Welch will remain in her current role through mid-June. Dr. Ann M. Wells, an internist with over 20 years of practice who has been with the Company for over 3 years, will assume the role of interim CMO, while the Company completes its search for a permanent replacement.

(1) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. See “Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and “Reconciliation of GAAP and Non-GAAP Measures” for a definition of Adjusted EBITDA and a reconciliation to net income (loss), the most closely comparable GAAP measure.

Forward-Looking Statements – Safe Harbor

This press release may contain “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as: “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” “project,” “estimate,” “expect,” “may,” “should,” “will” and similar references to future periods. Forward-looking statements may be identified by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. Examples of forward-looking statements include, among others, statements we may make regarding our expectations with respect to current audits and legal proceedings and actions, relationships and discussions with regulatory agencies, our expectations with respect to correcting deficiencies raised in audits and other processes, our ability to effectively implement remediation measures, including creating operational excellence as a provider, expanding our payer capabilities and strengthening enterprise functions, our expectations to increase the number of participants we serve, to grow enrollment and capacity within existing centers, to build de novo centers, quarterly or annual guidance, financial outlook, including future revenues and future earnings, reimbursement and regulatory developments, market developments, new products, integration activities and the effects of any of the foregoing on our future results of operations or financial conditions.

Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based only on currently available information and our current beliefs, expectations and assumptions regarding the future of our business, future plans and strategies, projections, anticipated events and trends, the economy and other future conditions. You should not place undue reliance on our forward-looking statements. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control. Our actual results and financial condition may differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Important factors that could cause our actual results and financial condition to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements include, among others, the following: (i) the impact of current inspections, reviews, audits, investigations, legal proceedings, enforcement actions and litigation, including the potential for future audits and legal proceedings; (ii) our ability to correct deficiencies raised in audits and other processes; (iii) our ability to execute on our One InnovAge initiative, including achieving operational excellence as a provider, expanding our payer capabilities and strengthening enterprise functions; (iv) our reliance on key members of management and effects from changes in management; (v) the risk that the cost of providing services will exceed our compensation under PACE; (vi) the dependence of our revenues upon a limited number of government payors, particularly Medicare and Medicaid; (vii) the effects of rules governing the Medicare, Medicaid or PACE programs; (viii) reductions in PACE reimbursement rates or changes in the rules governing PACE programs; (ix) the risk that our submissions to government payors may contain inaccurate or unsupportable information regarding risk adjustment scores of participants, which could cause us to overstate or understate our revenue and subjecting us to payment obligations and penalties; (x) the impact on our business of non-renewal or termination of capitation agreements with government payors; (xi) the impact of state and federal efforts to reduce healthcare spending; (xii) the continuing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic; (xiii) the effect of our relatively limited operating history as a for-profit company on investors’ ability to evaluate our current business and future prospects; and (xiv) our existing indebtedness and access to capital markets. For a detailed discussion of the risks and uncertainties that could affect our actual results, please refer to the risk factors identified in our SEC reports, including, but not limited to our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K and any subsequent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, in each case, as filed with the SEC.

Any forward-looking statement made by the Company in this press release is based only on information currently available to us and speaks only as of the date on which it is made. Except as required by law, we undertake no obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to reporting financial information in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), the Company is also reporting Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are supplemental measures of operating performance monitored by management that are not defined under GAAP and that do not represent, and should not be considered as, an alternative to net income (loss) and net income (loss) margin, respectively, as determined by GAAP. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are appropriate measures of operating performance because the metrics eliminate the impact of revenue and expenses that do not relate to our ongoing business performance, allowing us to more effectively evaluate our core operating performance and trends from period to period. We believe that Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin help investors and analysts in comparing our results across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools and should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, the analysis of other GAAP financial measures, including net income (loss) and net income (loss) margin. In evaluating Adjusted EBITDA, you should be aware that in the future we may incur expenses that are the same as or similar to some of the adjustments in this presentation. Our presentation of Adjusted EBITDA should not be construed to imply that our future results will be unaffected by the types of items excluded from the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA. Our use of the term Adjusted EBITDA varies from others in our industry. We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income (loss) adjusted for interest expense, depreciation and amortization, and provision for income tax as well as addbacks for non-recurring expenses or exceptional items, including charges relating to management equity compensation, executive severance and recruitment, class action litigation, M&A diligence, transaction and integration, business optimization, electronic medical record (EMR) implementation, financing-related fees and contingent consideration. Adjusted EBITDA margin is Adjusted EBITDA expressed as a percentage of our total revenue less any exceptional, one-time revenue items. For a full reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the most closely comparable GAAP financial measure, please see the attachment to this earnings release.
