Date:11/10/2010

PEABODY, Mass., Nov. 10, 2010 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PHC, Inc., d/b/a Pioneer Behavioral Health (NYSE Amex: PHC), a leading provider of inpatient and outpatient behavioral health services, today reported financial results for the Company's 2011 first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2010.

First Fiscal Quarter of 2011 Highlights

  • For the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2010, net patient care revenues increased 21% to $14.2 million from $11.8 million for the same period in 2009.
  • Income from continuing operations increased 247% to $1.2 million from $356,000 for the same period in 2009.
  • Net income applicable to common shareholders increased 204% to $679,000 from net income of $224,000 for the same period in 2009.
  • The Company's Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of up to one million shares of its Class A common stock for a one-year period commencing July 1, 2010. In the fiscal 2011 first quarter, the Company repurchased approximately 100,000 shares at an average price of approximately $1.11 per share.
  • The Company obtained Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approval for the Seven Hills Behavioral Institute facility, located in Henderson, Nevada, which enables it to immediately accept patients enrolled in the Medicare program.

  • Fiscal First Quarter of 2011 Financial ResultsTotal net revenues from continuing operations for the three months ended September 30, 2010 increased 19.2% to $15.1 million compared to $12.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009. Net patient care revenues increased 21.0% to $14.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010 from $11.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009. This increase in revenue is due primarily to increased census at Seven Hills Hospital in Las Vegas, a retroactive increase from a service contract at Harbor Oaks Hospital and a State Medicaid Rate adjustment. Contract support services revenue provided by Wellplace decreased 4.8% to $838,000 for the three months ended September 30, 2010 compared to $880,000 for the same period last year. Contract services revenue decreased due to decreases in the number of lives covered by the Employee Assistance Program ("EAP") contracts.

    Income from operations improved 247% to $1.2 million for the 2011 fiscal first quarter compared to $356,000 in the year-ago period. Income before taxes was $1.2 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2010 compared to $357,000 in the year-earlier period. Net income applicable to common shareholders was $679,000 for the fiscal 2011 first quarter, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $224,000, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share in the fiscal 2010 first quarter.

    "Building on our fiscal 2010 momentum, we again generated strong operating results for our fiscal 2011 first quarter, driven by net patient revenue growth, expanding gross margins and record profitability; this represented the Company's seventh consecutive quarter of profitability," said Bruce A. Shear, Pioneer's president and CEO. "We continue to carefully manage expenses and this, coupled with our expanding revenues, has resulted in economies of scale as we leverage our infrastructure more efficiently. For the fiscal first quarter 2011, total expenses as a percentage of revenue decreased 5.6% from the same period last year. We continue to increase operating margins working toward our stated goal of 10% for the back half of our fiscal year. We are already seeing the positive effect of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approval on patient census at the Seven Hills Behavioral Institute facility and expect this will continue going forward. This removed the last regulatory requirement to take all patients the market will support. Seven Hills achieved profitability in September, the first full month of profitability for this facility. In addition, our balance sheet remains strong and we continue to reduce the minimal remaining debt."

    As of September 30, 2010, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $3.1 million compared to $4.5 million as of June 30, 2010. Stockholders' equity improved to $17.9 million as of September 30, 2010 from $17.3 million as of June 30, 2010.
