(iii) delays in receiving payments for services provided, reductions in Medicare or Medicaid payments (including increased recoveries made by Recovery Audit Contractors (RAC) and similar governmental agents), compared to the timing of expanded coverage; (iv) reductions in reimbursements from commercial payors, whether due to a change in our revenue mix, service mix, reduction in commercial rates or otherwise; (v) our ability to acquire hospitals and other healthcare providerson favorable terms, the business risks and costs associated therewith and the uncertainty in operating and integrating such hospitals and other providers; (vi) our ongoing ability to demonstrate meaningful use of certified electronic health record technology and recognize income for the related Medicare or Medicaid incentive payments; (vii) the failure or closure of employers in our markets, especially those that are dependent on a small number of local employers;

(xiii) the loss of certain physicians in markets where such a loss can have a disproportionate impact on our hospital in such market; (xiv) the application, interpretation and enforcement of increasingly stringent and complex laws and regulations governing our operations and healthcare generally (and changing interpretations of applicable laws and regulations), related enforcement activity and the potentially adverse impact of known and unknown government investigations, litigation and other claims that may be made against us; (xv) any interruption of or restriction in our access to licensed information (and information technology systems) or failure in our ability to integrate changes to LifePoint's existing information systems or information systems of acquired hospitals; (xvi) the highly competitive nature of the health care business; (xvii) adverse events in states where a large portion of our revenues are concentrated; (xviii) the availability and terms of capital to fund the expansion of our business and improvements to our existing facilities, and any changes in accounting practices; (xix) liabilities resulting from potential malpractice and related legal claims brought against our hospitals or the healthcare providers associated with, or employed by, such hospitals or affiliated entities; (xx) our increased dependence on third parties to provide purchasing, revenue cycle and payroll services and information technology and whether they are able to do so effectively; (xxi) the continued viability of our operations through joint venture entities, the largest of which is Duke LifePoint Healthcare, our partnership with a wholly controlled affiliate of Duke University Health Systems, Inc.; and (xxii) those other risks and uncertainties described from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.Therefore, our future results may differ materially from those described in this release.LifePoint undertakes no obligation to update any forward-looking statements, or to make any other forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

(1) Continuing operations information includes the results of our hospital support center, our same-hospital operations and the results of recent acquisitions completed in 2013 and 2012.

 

(2) Management and investors use equivalent admissions as a general measure of combined inpatient and outpatient volume. We compute equivalent admissions by multiplying admissions (inpatient volumes) by the outpatient factor (the sum of gross inpatient revenue and gross outpatient revenue and then dividing the resulting amount by gross inpatient revenue). The equivalent admissions computation "equates" outpatient revenue to the volume measure (admissions) used to measure inpatient volume resulting in a general measure of combined inpatient and outpatient volume.

 

(3) Same-hospital information includes the results of our hospital support center and the same 53 hospital campuses operated during the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012. Same-hospital information excludes the results of our recent acquisitions completed in 2013 and 2012.

 

 

 

 

LIFEPOINT HOSPITALS, INC.

UNAUDITED SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION

Dollars in millions, except Diluted EPS amounts

 

Adjusted EBITDA is defined by the Company as earnings before depreciation and amortization; interest expense, net; gain on settlement of pre-acquisition contingent obligation; debt transaction costs; impairment charges; provision for income taxes; loss (income) from discontinued operations, net of income taxes; and net income attributable to noncontrolling interests. LifePoint's management and Board of Directors use Adjusted EBITDA to evaluate the Company's operating performance and as a measure of performance for incentive compensation purposes. LifePoint's credit facilities use Adjusted EBITDA for certain financial covenants. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is a measure of performance used by some investors, equity analysts and others to make informed investment decisions. In addition, multiples of current or projected Adjusted EBITDA are used to estimate current or prospective enterprise value. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as a measure of financial performance under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), and the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows generated by operating, investing or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity. Because Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and is susceptible to varying calculations, Adjusted EBITDA as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
