Providence Service Corporation Reports Q2 2011 Results In Line With Expectations

TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Providence Service Corporation (Nasdaq: PRSC) today announced its financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011.  

For the second quarter of 2011, the Company reported revenue of $235.3 million, an increase of 5.8% from $222.3 million for the comparable period in 2010.  Revenue from Providence's non-emergency transportation (NET) services segment grew 6.7% to $142.0 million in the second quarter from $133.1 million in the prior year period.  Revenue from the social services segment increased 4.6% to $93.3 million, up from $89.2 million in the second quarter of 2010.  

Net income was $4.9 million, or $0.36 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011.  This compares to net income of $7.3 million, or $0.54 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2010.  The Company benefitted from a $1.7 million quarter over quarter decline in interest expense as a result of refinancing its senior credit facility in the first quarter of 2011.

Providence's direct client census was approximately 59,100 at June 30, 2011, compared to approximately 58,100 at December 31, 2010 and 60,700 at June 30, 2010.  Year over year census was negatively impacted by a decline, primarily in workforce development, due to our non-renewal of one contract.  The Company had approximately 9.6 million individuals eligible to receive services under its NET contracts at June 30, 2011 compared to approximately 8.2 million at December 31, 2010 and approximately 8.0 million at June 30, 2010.  Direct contracts numbered 647 at June 30, 2011 up from 633 at June 30, 2010.  

For the first six months of 2011, the Company reported revenue of $463.1 million, an increase of 4.5% from $443.3 million in the first six months of 2010.  Revenue from Providence's NET services segment grew 5.8% to $280.9 million in the first half of 2011 from $265.6 million in the prior year period.  Revenue from the social services segment increased 2.5% to $182.2 million, up from $177.7 million in the first half of 2010.

Net income was $9.3 million, or $0.70 per diluted share, in the first half of 2011 and included a non-cash charge of approximately $2.5 million, or $0.11 per share, related to the write-off of unamortized deferred financing fees of its senior credit facility.  Net income was $16.4 million, or $1.19 per diluted share, in the first half of 2010.  

At June 30, 2011, the Company had unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of $54.2 million.  During the first half of 2011, the Company generated a total of $21.9 million in cash from operations.  At June 30, 2011, the Company had long term liabilities of $179.1 million, down from $184.5 million at December 31, 2010 and $190.3 million at June 30, 2010.  

"Our second quarter 2011 results are consistent with our revised forecast," stated Fletcher McCusker, Chairman and CEO.  "We have completed the social services contract renewal cycle with substantially all contracts renewed and with relatively stable rates.  The NET segment is more competitive than ever and while we are pleased with our new wins, they have come with lower margins.  We won the incumbent contract in Virginia, our second largest contract, and recently added a new state-wide NET services contract in Wisconsin and our bid was accepted and we are currently negotiating for a large state regional contract as part of a competitive procurement.  Due to start up expenses, the two new contracts are not expected to be profitable in 2011."

Guidance Providence anticipates revenue for 2011 of between $933 and $943 million and earnings per diluted share of between $1.29 and $1.33 after including the non-cash charge of approximately $2.5 million, or $0.11 per share, related to the write-off of unamortized deferred financing fees of its senior credit facility.  In 2010, Providence reported revenue of $879.7 million and diluted earnings per share of $1.78.

In the third quarter of 2011, we anticipate revenue to be in a range of $230 to $235 million, with the addition of the NET services contract in Wisconsin.  Diluted earnings per share for the third quarter is forecasted to be between $0.23 and $0.25 given the seasonal slowdown in our school based business.  This compares to revenue of $217.2 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.22 in the third quarter of 2010.

For the fourth quarter of 2011, revenue is anticipated to be in the range of $240 to $245 million, with the addition of our newest NET services state regional contract award, and diluted earnings per share is forecasted to be between $0.36 and $0.38.  This compares to revenue of $219.3 million and diluted earnings per share of $0.33 in the fourth quarter of 2010.
