AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hanger, Inc. (NYSE: HGR) announced net sales of $272.2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, an increase of $24.1 million, or 9.7%, from $248.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.
Diluted earnings per share were $0.62 for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to $0.52 for the same period of 2011. Adjusted diluted earnings per share, which excludes certain tax benefits and costs related to acquisitions, the Company's clinic management system ("Janus") and the 2010 relocation of the Company's corporate headquarters ("the relocation"), increased 16.0% to $0.58 for the fourth quarter of 2012, from $0.50 for the fourth quarter of 2011.
The $24.1 million, or 9.7%, increase in net sales for the fourth quarter of 2012 was the result of a $21.8 million, or 10.5%, increase in the Patient Care segment, comprised of a $9.8 million, or 4.7%, increase in same center sales and a $12.0 million increase from acquired entities; a $1.3 million, or 5.1%, increase in sales in the Distribution segment; and a $1.0 million, or 6.2%, increase in the Therapeutic Solutions segment. Income from operations for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 was $38.9 million, compared to $34.3 million in the prior year. Excluding costs related to acquisitions, Janus and the relocation, adjusted income from operations increased 13.1% to $39.8 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 from $35.2 million in the prior year. Adjusted income from operations as a percentage of revenue increased 40 basis points to 14.6% for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the same period in 2011, which was primarily attributable to the sales increase in the Patient Care segment combined with continued control of fixed costs.
Net sales increased $67.1 million, or 7.3%, to $985.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 from $918.5 million for 2011. The sales increase was primarily the result of a $30.1 million, or 4.0%, increase in same center sales within the Patient Care segment and a $30.2 million increase from acquired entities, as well as a $6.8 million, or 6.8%, increase in sales in the Distribution segment. Sales in the Therapeutic Solutions segment remained relatively flat compared to the prior year. Adjusted income from operations increased 50 basis points as a percentage of sales from the prior year, for the same reasons discussed in the previous paragraph. Diluted earnings per share were $1.84 for the year ended December 31, 2012, a 14.3% increase compared to $1.61 for 2011. Excluding certain tax benefits and costs related to acquisitions, Janus and the relocation, adjusted diluted earnings per share increased $0.22, or 13.8%, to $1.81 for the year ended December 31, 2012 from $1.59 for 2011.
The Company's cash flow from operations increased $19.5 million to $81.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $61.8 million for 2011. As of December 31, 2012, the Company had $118.7 million in total liquidity, including $19.2 million of cash and $99.5 million available under its revolving credit facility, net of $0.5 million in letters of credit. The Company's leverage ratio, as defined in its credit facilities, improved to 2.8 at December 31, 2012 from 3.0 at December 31, 2011.
"We reported excellent results across the board in the fourth quarter," commented Vinit K. Asar, President and Chief Executive Officer of Hanger. "Patient Care finished the year strong with 4.7% same center sales growth and better than anticipated sales from acquisitions, Distribution reported 5.1% growth and Therapeutic Solutions reported sales growth for the first time in over a year during the fourth quarter. In 2012 our Patient Care same center sales increased 4.0%, we expanded adjusted operating margins by 50 bps, and we increased adjusted diluted earnings per share by 13.8%. We anticipate 2013 will be another year of profitable growth, even as we continue to make key investments in capabilities aimed at enhancing long-term productivity. We are guiding to increase our adjusted diluted earnings per share between 11.6% and 15.5% for 2013."
The Company expects 2013 revenues of between $1.06 and $1.08 billion, resulting from 3% to 5% same center sales growth in its Patient Care segment, along with 3% to 5% growth in both its Distribution and Therapeutic Solutions segments. The Company anticipates adjusted diluted earnings per share between $2.02 and $2.09 for 2013, excluding approximately $0.05 for training costs related to the implementation of Janus and an increase in adjusted operating margins of between 30 to 50 basis points. The Company anticipates generating cash flow from operations of between $80 million and $100 million in 2013, and investing a total of $40 million to $50 million in capital additions. During 2013 the Company will continue its acquisition program with a goal of closing acquisitions that total approximately $20 million in annualized revenues.

6.0%5.7%6.1%5.5%Management relies on the non-GAAP items as the primary measures to review and assess operating performance and management teams. The Company believes it is useful to investors to provide disclosures of its operating results on the same basis as that used by management. Management and investors also review the non-GAAP items to evaluate the Company's overall performance and to compare its current operating results with corresponding periods and with other companies in the health care industry. You should not consider the non-GAAP items in isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating cash flows or other cash flow statement data determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Because the non-GAAP items are not measures of financial performance under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and are susceptible to varying calculations, they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Adjusted net income, Adjusted income from operations, and Adjusted net income per diluted share are the non-GAAP financial measures.
