Improving Health, Health Care and Quality of Life
DaVita (Total Renal Care Holdings, Inc.)
Quarterly financial highlights include: -- Continental U.S. dialysis revenue per treatment (excluding lab, pharmacy and other revenue) in the second quarter was $249.23 as compared to $247.01 in the first quarter, or a 1% increase. -- Continental U.S. DSO at quarter end was 80 days. This represents a three-day improvement from the first quarter. Excluding the suspended Florida laboratory Medicare receivables of $38 million, DSO was 71 days or a four-day improvement during the quarter. -- Net cash provided by operations was $49 million in the second quarter, after the payment of $11 million for the shareholder litigation settlement. Routine capital asset purchases and growth capital expenditures were approximately $8 million. -- Consolidated revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2000 were $379 million and $751 million, respectively. Revenues from the continental U.S. were $344 million and $684 million, respectively. Revenues from the non-continental operations were $35 million and $67 million, respectively. -- Total continental U.S. treatments for the second quarter were 1,335,873. Non-acquired treatment growth was 6.4%, which included same center treatment growth of 5.0%. -- Application of the proceeds of the sale of the Company's non-continental operations and outpatient pharmacy business reduced the Company's outstanding debt obligations by approximately $128 million. Net debt (total debt less cash) was reduced by approximately $174 million, or 13%, from $1.29 billion to $1.12 billion as of the end of the quarter. -- In July 2000, DaVita completed a restructuring of its revolving and term loan credit facilities. The Company is now in compliance with all credit facility covenants. Accordingly, the Company's credit facility debt and subordinated notes have been reclassified from current to long-term, except for the current portion. Interest rates related to these obligations have returned to the pre-default rates that are based on LIBOR plus an applicable margin. -- At June 30, 2000 we operated 489 outpatient centers in the continental U.S. serving over 40,000 patients. During the quarter, we opened 5 de novo dialysis facilities, added 4 managed units and closed 4 under-performing centers. Included in our continental patient and facility count are 4,500 patients in 55 centers under management. We also provide acute hemodialysis services to inpatients at 301 continental U.S. hospitals. Specifics of the second quarter charges are as follows: -- $4.4 million non-cash impairment and valuation adjustments primarily related to the divestiture of our non-continental operations, -- $10.8 million cash charge related to the settlement of our shareholder class action lawsuit, -- $4.7 million non-cash write-off of a cumulative foreign currency translation loss from our non-continental business, and -- $2.7 million non-cash charge, included in tax expense, for the write-off of a deferred tax asset associated with medical director stock options that have been cancelled.
These previously disclosed charges total $17.7 million on an after tax basis.
As a result of the restructuring of our revolving and term loan credit facilities in July 2000, our third quarter results will include the write-off of certain related financing costs. These write-offs will be reflected principally as an extraordinary loss of $3.5 million, net of tax. Additionally, there will be $1.2 million of pre-tax costs written-off which will be included in debt expense. Other previously disclosed potential future charges and expenses include potential charges related to the unwinding of poor performing contracts, partnerships or investments in dialysis related companies, and any potential losses related to unfavorable resolution of the ongoing payment suspension of Medicare claims for our Florida laboratory.
Kent Thiry, Chairman and CEO observed, "The DaVita team continues to demonstrate great resolve in our quest to meet the expectations of each of our constituencies. Our near-term prospects for sustaining our march to achieving operating excellence are good. However, we still advise caution with respect to long-term industry margins, in particular because, rate reductions in the higher pay segments would be difficult to offset."
