Certain items impacting the quarter:

Debt transactions: On August 12, 2019, we entered into a new $5.5 billion senior secured credit agreement consisting of a $1.75 billion senior secured Term Loan A facility with a delayed draw feature, a $2.75 billion senior secured Term Loan B facility and a $1.0 billion senior secured revolving line of credit. As of September 30, 2019, the new Term Loan A and Term Loan B were fully drawn and the new revolving line of credit remained undrawn. We used the proceeds from the new senior secured credit facilities to pay off the remaining balances outstanding on our previous senior secured credit facilities, redeem our 5.75% senior notes due 2022 and pay related redemption fees, and fund our modified "Dutch auction" tender offer (Tender Offer) to purchase shares of our common stock as further described below, as well as to repurchase additional shares of our common stock through open market transactions. The remaining debt borrowings added cash to our balance sheet for potential acquisitions, share repurchases and other general corporate purposes.

As a result of the debt transactions described above, we recorded debt refinancing and redemption charges of $21 million in the third quarter of 2019. These charges consist of write-offs of old debt discount and deferred financing costs, as well as the redemption premium associated with our 5.75% senior notes and professional fees.

Share repurchases: The following table summarizes repurchases of our common stock during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019.

The amount paid for shares repurchased associated with the Company's Tender Offer during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 includes the clearing price of $56.50 per share plus related fees and expenses of $2 million.

In addition to the share repurchases described above, we have also repurchased 4,283,376 shares of our common stock for $246 million at an average cost of $57.32 per share from October 1, 2019 through November 4, 2019. Effective November 4, 2019, our Board of Directors terminated all remaining prior share repurchase authorizations available to us and approved a new share repurchase authorization of $2 billion.

Non-GAAP adjustments to operating income:

Goodwill impairment charge: During the quarter ended September 30, 2019, we recognized a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $79 million in our Germany kidney care business as a result of continuing developments in the business and our expected timing and ability to mitigate them. This charge included a $17 million increase to the goodwill impairment charge due to the deferred tax assets that the impairment itself generated. The result was a $79 million goodwill impairment charge to operating income, a $17 million credit to tax expense, and a net $62 million impact on net income. We also recognized a $5 million goodwill impairment charge in our other German health operations.

For the definitions of non-GAAP financial measures see the note titled "Note on Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and related reconciliations beginning at page 14.

Volume:  Total U.S. dialysis treatments for the third quarter of 2019 were 7,673,191, or an average of 97,129 treatments per day, representing a per day increase of 2.7% over the third quarter of 2018. Normalized non-acquired treatment growth in the third quarter of 2019 as compared to the third quarter of 2018 was 2.2%.

Effective income tax rate:  Our effective income tax rate on income from continuing operations was 23.8% and 24.3% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively. This effective income tax rate was impacted by the amount of third party owners' income attributable to non-tax paying entities. The effective income tax rate on income from continuing operations attributable to DaVita Inc. was 30.3% and 29.8% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.

Our effective income tax rate on income from continuing operations attributable to DaVita Inc. for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 was further impacted by the write-off of deferred financing costs, other debt costs and goodwill impairment charges. Excluding these items from the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, our effective income tax rate on adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to DaVita Inc. would have been 27.6% and 28.4% for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, respectively.

Center activity:  As of September 30, 2019, we provided dialysis services to a total of approximately 233,300 patients at 2,985 outpatient dialysis centers, of which 2,736 centers were located in the United States and 249 centers were located in nine countries outside of the United States. During the third quarter of 2019, we opened a total of 24 new dialysis centers, acquired two dialysis centers and closed 13 dialysis centers in the United States. In addition, we opened one new dialysis center, acquired two dialysis centers and closed two dialysis centers outside of the United States during the third quarter of 2019.

Outlook:

The following forward-looking measures and the underlying assumptions involve significant risks and uncertainties, including those described below, and actual results may vary significantly from these current forward-looking measures. We do not provide guidance for consolidated operating income, diluted net income from continuing operations per share attributable to DaVita Inc. or effective tax rate on income from continuing operations on a GAAP basis nor a reconciliation of forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis because we are unable to predict certain items contained in the GAAP measures without unreasonable efforts. These non-GAAP financial measures do not include certain items, including goodwill impairment charges and foreign currency fluctuations, any of which may be significant. The guidance for effective income tax rate on adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to DaVita Inc. also excludes the write-off of deferred financing costs, other debt costs and the amount of third party owners' income and related taxes attributable to non-tax paying entities.

DaVita Inc. and its representatives may from time to time make written and oral forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 ("PSLRA"), including statements in this release, filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), reports to stockholders and in meetings with investors and analysts. All such statements in this release, during the related presentation or other meetings, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements and as such are intended to be covered by the safe harbor for "forward-looking statements" provided by the PSLRA. Without limiting the foregoing, statements including the words "expect," "intend," "will," "plan," "anticipate," "believe," "we are confident that," "forecast," "guidance," "outlook," "goals," and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements.

The forward-looking statements should be considered in light of these risks and uncertainties. All forward-looking statements in this release are based solely on information available to us on the date of this release. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any of our guidance, the assessment of the underlying assumptions or other forward-looking statements, whether as a result of changed circumstances, new information, future events or otherwise.

These forward-looking statements could include but are not limited to statements related to our guidance and expectations for future periods and the assumptions underlying any such projections.

Our actual results and other events could differ materially from any forward-looking statements due to numerous factors that involve substantial known and unknown risks and uncertainties. These risks and uncertainties include, among other things:

  • the concentration of profits generated by higher-paying commercial payor plans for which there is continued downward pressure on average realized payment rates, and a reduction in the number of patients under such plans, including as a result of restrictions or prohibitions on the use and/or availability of charitable premium assistance, which may result in the loss of revenues or patients, or our making incorrect assumptions about how our patients will respond to any change in financial assistance from charitable organizations;
  • the extent to which the ongoing implementation of healthcare reform, or changes in or new legislation, regulations or guidance, enforcement thereof or related litigation, and the extent to which such developments result in a reduction in coverage or reimbursement rates for our services, a reduction in the number of patients enrolled in higher-paying commercial plans, or other material impacts to our business;
  • a reduction in government payment rates under the Medicare End Stage Renal Disease program or other government-based programs and the impact of the Medicare Advantage benchmark structure;
  • risks arising from potential and proposed federal and/or state legislation, regulation, ballot, executive action or other initiatives, including such initiatives related to healthcare and/or labor matters;
  • the impact of the political environment and related developments on the current healthcare marketplace and on our business, including with respect to the future of the Affordable Care Act, the exchanges and many other core aspects of the current health care marketplace;
  • changes in pharmaceutical practice patterns, reimbursement and payment policies and processes, or pharmaceutical pricing, including with respect to calcimimetics;
  • legal and compliance risks, such as our continued compliance with complex government regulations;
  • continued increased competition from dialysis providers and others, and other potential marketplace changes;
  • our ability to maintain contracts with physician medical directors, changing affiliation models for physicians, and the emergence of new models of care introduced by the government or private sector that may erode our patient base and reimbursement rates, such as accountable care organizations, independent practice associations and integrated delivery systems;
  • our ability to complete acquisitions, mergers or dispositions that we might announce or be considering, on terms favorable to us or at all, or to integrate and successfully operate any business we may acquire or have acquired, or to successfully expand our operations and services in markets outside the United States, or to businesses outside of dialysis;
  • uncertainties related to potential payments and/or adjustments under certain provisions of the equity purchase agreement for the sale of our DaVita Medical Group business, such as post-closing adjustments and indemnification obligations;
  • noncompliance by us or our business associates with any privacy or security laws or any security breach by us or a third party involving the misappropriation, loss or other unauthorized use or disclosure of confidential information;
  • the variability of our cash flows; the risk that we may not be able to generate sufficient cash in the future to service our indebtedness or to fund our other liquidity needs; and the risk that we may not be able to refinance our indebtedness as it becomes due, on terms favorable to us or at all;
  • factors that may impact our ability to repurchase stock under our stock repurchase program and the timing of any such stock repurchases, as well as our use of a considerable amount of available funds to repurchase stock;
  • risks arising from the use of accounting estimates, judgments and interpretations in our financial statements;
  • impairment of our goodwill, investments or other assets;
  • uncertainties related to our use of the proceeds from the DaVita Medical Group sale transaction and other available funds, including external financing and cash flow from operations, which may be or have been used in ways that we cannot assure will improve our results of operations or enhance the value of our common stock; and
  • uncertainties associated with the other risk factors set forth in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 as updated by our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, and the other risks and uncertainties discussed in any subsequent reports that we file or furnish with SEC from time to time.

SUPPLEMENTAL FINANCIAL DATA-continued
(unaudited)
(dollars in thousands)

Note 1: Calculation of the Leverage Ratio

Under our new senior secured credit facilities (the New Credit Agreement) dated August 12, 2019 and our prior senior secured credit facilities (the Prior Credit Agreement), the leverage ratio is defined as all funded debt plus the face amount of all letters of credit issued, minus cash and cash equivalents, not to exceed certain limits under the New Credit Agreement, including short-term investments, divided by "Consolidated EBITDA". The leverage ratio determines the interest rate margin payable by the Company for its new Term Loan A and new revolving line of credit under the New Credit Agreement by establishing the margin over the base interest rate (LIBOR) that is applicable. The following leverage ratios were calculated using "Consolidated EBITDA" as defined in the credit agreement that was in effect at the end of each period. The calculation below is based on the last twelve months of "Consolidated EBITDA", as of the end of the reported period and pro forma for routine acquisitions that occurred during the period. The Company's management believes the presentation of "Consolidated EBITDA" is useful to users to enhance their understanding of the Company's leverage ratio under its credit agreement in effect at that time. The leverage ratio calculated by the Company is a non-GAAP measure and should not be considered a substitute for debt to net income attributable to DaVita Inc., net income attributable to DaVita Inc. or total debt as determined in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). For the periods ended June 30, 2019 and September 30, 2018, as allowed by our Prior Credit Agreement, the Company elected to calculate debt using GAAP in effect at the commencement of the Prior Credit Agreement; therefore, the Company did not adjust its debt balance to include the lease liabilities under ASC Topic 842. The Company's calculation of its leverage ratio might not be calculated in the same manner as, and thus might not be comparable to, similarly titled measures by other companies.

DAVITA INC.
RECONCILIATIONS FOR NON-GAAP MEASURES
(unaudited)

Note on Non-GAAP Financial Measures

As used in this press release, the term "adjusted" refers to non-GAAP measures as follows, each as reconciled to its most comparable GAAP measure as presented in the non-GAAP reconciliations in the notes to this press release: (i) for income measures, the term "adjusted" refers to operating performance measures that exclude certain items such as impairment charges, (gain) loss on ownership changes, restructuring charges, debt prepayment charges and gains and charges associated with settlements; and (ii) the term "effective income tax rate on adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to DaVita Inc." represents the Company's effective tax rate excluding applicable non-GAAP items and noncontrolling owners' income, which primarily relates to non-tax paying entities.

These non-GAAP or "adjusted" measures are presented because management believes these measures are useful adjuncts to GAAP results. However, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered alternatives to the corresponding measures determined under GAAP.

Specifically, we use adjusted operating income, adjusted net income from continuing operations attributable to DaVita Inc. and adjusted diluted net income from continuing operations per share attributable to DaVita Inc. to compare and evaluate our performance period over period and relative to competitors, to analyze the underlying trends in our business, to establish operational budgets and forecasts and for incentive compensation purposes. We believe these non-GAAP measures are useful to management, investors and analysts in evaluating our performance over time and relative to competitors, as well as in analyzing the underlying trends in our business. We also believe these presentations enhance a user's understanding of our normal consolidated operating income by excluding certain items which we do not believe are indicative of our ordinary results of operations. As a result, adjusting for these amounts allows for comparison to our normalized prior period results.

In addition, the effective income tax rate on income from continuing operations attributable to DaVita Inc. excludes noncontrolling owners' income, which primarily relates to non-tax paying entities, and the effective income tax rate on adjusted income from continuing operations attributable to DaVita Inc. excludes noncontrolling owners' income and certain non-deductible and other charges which we do not believe are indicative of our ordinary results. Accordingly, we believe these adjusted effective income tax rates are useful to management, investors and analysts in evaluating our performance and establishing expectations for income taxes incurred on our ordinary results attributable to DaVita Inc.

Finally, under our new definition, free cash flow from continuing operations represents net cash provided by operating activities from continuing operations less distributions to noncontrolling interests and all capital expenditures (including development capital expenditures, routine maintenance and information technology); plus contributions from noncontrolling interests and sale leaseback proceeds. We believe this non-GAAP measure is useful to management, investors and analysts as an adjunct to cash flows from operating activities from continuing operations and other measures under GAAP, since free cash flow from continuing operations is meaningful for assessing our ability to fund acquisition and meet our debt service obligations.

It is important to bear in mind that these non-GAAP "adjusted" measures are not measures of financial performance or liquidity under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation from, nor as substitutes for, their most comparable GAAP measures.

The following Notes 2 through 5 provide reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release to their most comparable GAAP measures.
