Operating activities. Net cash provided by operating activities increased by $360.5 million from 2006 to 2007. This increase resulted from higher net operating revenues and lower operating expenses year over year. Specifically, we experienced a $109.8 million reduction in professional fees-accounting, tax, and legal from 2006 to 2007. In addition, we received a $440 million federal income tax recovery in October 2007. Net cash provided by operating activities in 2007 and 2006 also included payments of approximately $171.4 million and $132.8 million, respectively, related to government, class action, and related settlements.
Investing activities. The increase in net cash provided by investing activities from 2006 to 2007 was due to the cash proceeds received from the divestitures of our surgery centers, outpatient, and diagnostic divisions during 2007.
Financing activities. The increase in net cash used in financing
activities was due to the use of the net cash proceeds from the
divestitures of our surgery centers, outpatient, and diagnostic divisions,
as well as the majority of our federal income tax recovery, to reduce debt
outstanding under our Credit Agreement during 2007. During 2007, we made
approximately $1.3 billion of net debt payments, while during 2006, we made
approximately $246.3 million of net debt payments. Financing activities for
2006 also included approximately $387.4 million of net proceeds from the
issuance of convertible perpetual preferred stock.
