DALLAS and NEW YORK – November 9, 2021 – Signify Health, Inc. (NYSE: SGFY), a leading healthcare platform that leverages advanced analytics, technology and nationwide healthcare networks to create and power value-based payment programs, today announced the Company’s financial results for the third quarter of 2021 and nine months ended September 30, 2021.
“Year-to-date through the end of September, our broad network of highly qualified doctors and nurse practitioners performed over 1.4 million comprehensive in-home evaluations that aid care gap closures, address social determinants of health, and assess behavioral needs,” said Kyle Armbrester, Chief Executive Officer of Signify Health. “Our team of clinicians, working together with our social and engagement coordinators, compassionately interacts with a growing number of individuals across the entire country to connect and drive engagement with the broader healthcare system to have more healthy, happy days at home. While doing this important work, we achieved strong financial performance in the third quarter and for the nine-months ended September 30, 2021, as increasing customer demand for our in-home evaluations drove strong Home & Community Services results in the third quarter and is expected to create strong momentum going into 2022.”
Mr. Armbrester continued, “In our Episodes of Care Services segment, we continue to deliver strong savings to our customers and ensure superior care to individuals during their healthcare episodes. We are on track to deliver a 2021 program size exit run rate of approximately $6 billion in our episodes business, setting up strong BPCI-A program size for 2022. Additionally, we continue to expand our Networks of Distinction for the future growth of our non-BPCI-A episodes of care business.”
Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results
- Total revenue for the third quarter of 2021 increased 29% to $ 199.2 million, up from $154.7 million in the same period a year ago. Overall growth in the third quarter of 2021 was driven by strength in Home & Community Services (HCS).
- HCS revenue grew to $169.1 million in the third quarter of 2021, an increase of 47% over the same period a year ago, due to in-home evaluation (IHE) volume of approximately 488 thousand in the quarter compared to approximately 362 thousand in the third quarter of 2020.
- Third quarter 2021 revenue was $30.1 million for the Episodes of Care Services (ECS) segment compared to $40.0 million in the same period a year ago. The decline was primarily due to the adverse impact of COVID-19 on program size and the savings rate. Additionally, there was approximately $9.2 million of revenue recorded during the three months ended September 30, 2020 reflecting positive changes in estimates based on new information received ahead of the reconciliation due in the fourth quarter 2020. The new information included the impact of COVID-19 on program size and the subsequent options CMS offered to providers that had an overall beneficial impact on savings rates.
- Third quarter 2021 total net income was $29.3 million, compared to a net loss of $13.3 million for the same period a year ago, due to the improvement in operating performance as well as the quarterly revaluation of customer Equity Appreciation Rights agreements, or EARs. The EARs are marked to market each quarter and this resulted in a credit of $27.3 million reflecting the current lower value of the stock.
- Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA1 for the third quarter of 2021 increased 46% to $42.0 million, compared to $28.7 million for the third quarter of 2020, driven primarily by HCS growth, partially offset by higher operating expenses related to investments made to support our growth and technology. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA margin1 for the third quarter of 2021 was 21.1%, a 250-basis point improvement from the third quarter of 2020.
Nine Months Ended September 30, 2021 Financial Results
- Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 increased 42% to $592.0 million, up from $417.1 million in the same period a year ago. Overall growth for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021 was driven by momentum in HCS.
- HCS revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $496.9 million, a 65% increase from the nine-months ended 2020, due to an increase in IHE volume to approximately 1.447 million compared to approximately 963 thousand in the same period of 2020 and the lower relative volume of virtual IHEs in 2021 when compared to 2020. Virtual IHEs have a lower cost per evaluation than in-person IHEs.
- ECS revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 decreased 17% compared to the prior year period to $95.1 million, reflecting lower program size and savings rates due to the impact of COVID-19.
- Net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was $22.5 million, compared to a net loss of $15.2 million in the comparable period a year ago.
- Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA1 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 increased 52% to $131.0 million, compared to $86.0 million for the same period in 2020, driven primarily by HCS growth. Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA margin1 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was 22.1%, a 150-basis point improvement from the same period a year ago.
Signify Health is raising its total revenue and adjusted EBITDA guidance ranges for 2021 as follows:
- Total GAAP revenue in the range of $755 million to $770 million; and
- Total adjusted EBITDA1 in the range of $160 million to $170 million.
We are providing estimates for key performance indicators for the full year 2021, as follows:
- Reflecting continued strength in Home and Community Services, we now expect IHEs in the range of approximately 1.815 to 1.855 million
- For Episodes of Care Services, we are maintaining our estimates of:
- ECS segment weighted average program size of approximately $4.9 to $5.1 billion dollars; and
- ECS segment weighted average savings rate of approximately 6.1% to 6.4%
1Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA margin are non-GAAP financial measures. Refer to the reconciliation in “Non-GAAP Financial Measures.” We have not reconciled 2021 guidance for adjusted EBITDA to net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and have not provided forward-looking guidance for net income (loss) because of the uncertainty around certain items that may impact net income (loss), including, among others, stock-based compensation and the fair valuation of the EARs, that are not within our control or cannot be reasonably estimated.
