NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release and the accompanying financial statement tables reference non-GAAP financial measures, such as gross profit margin, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted EPS. Such non-GAAP financial measures are provided as additional information and should not be considered substitutes for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Such non-GAAP financial measures are provided for consistency and comparability to prior year results; furthermore, management believes such non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors when evaluating the Company’s performance, as such non-GAAP financial measures exclude certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company’s future operating performance. Pro forma measures, if applicable, are adjusted to include the results of our acquisitions, and exclude the results of divestments, as if the transactions occurred in the beginning of the periods mentioned. Such non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The financial statement tables that accompany this press release include a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure and a more detailed discussion of each financial measure; as such, the financial statement tables should be read in conjunction with the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures.

In addition, forward-looking adjusted EBITDA and adjusted EPS for fiscal 2024 exclude potential charges or gains that may be recorded during the fiscal year, including among other things, the potential impact of any future divestitures, mergers, acquisitions, or other business combinations, changes in debt structure, or future significant share repurchases. We have not attempted to provide reconciliations of such forward-looking non-GAAP earnings guidance to the comparable GAAP measure, as permitted by Item 10(e)(1)(i)(B) of Regulation S-K, because the impact and timing of these potential charges or gains is inherently uncertain and difficult to predict and is unavailable without unreasonable efforts. In addition, the Company believes such reconciliations would imply a degree of precision and certainty that could be confusing to investors. Such items could have a substantial impact on GAAP measures of our financial performance.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

In addition to historical information, this press release contains statements relating to our future results (including certain projections and business trends) that are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and are subject to the “safe harbor” created by those sections. Forward-looking statements consist of statements that are predictive in nature and/or depend upon or refer to future events. Words such as “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” “suggests,” “appears,” “seeks,” “will,” “could,” and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors that may cause our actual results and performance to be materially different from any future results or performance expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. These factors include, but are not limited to, the following: the overall macroeconomic environment, including increased inflation and interest rates, demand for the healthcare services we provide, both nationally and in the regions in which we operate, our ability to attract and retain qualified nurses, physicians, and other healthcare personnel, costs and availability of short-term housing for our travel healthcare professionals, the functioning of our information systems, the effect of cyber security risks and cyber incidents on our business, the effect of existing or future government regulation and federal and state legislative and enforcement initiatives on our business, including data privacy and protection laws, social, ethical, and security issues relating to the use of artificial intelligence, our customers’ ability to pay us for our services, our ability to successfully implement our acquisition and development strategies, including our ability to successfully integrate acquired businesses and realize synergies from such acquisitions, the effect of liabilities and other claims asserted against us, the effect of competition in the markets we serve, our ability to successfully defend the Company, its subsidiaries, and its officers and directors on the merits of any lawsuit or determine its potential liability, if any, and other factors, including, without limitation, the risk factors set forth in Item 1A. “Risk Factors” in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023, as filed and updated in our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q and other filings with the SEC. You should consult any further disclosures that the Company makes on related subjects in its filings with the SEC.

Although we believe that these statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, we cannot guarantee future results and readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which reflect management’s opinions only as of the date of this press release. There can be no assurance that (i) we have correctly measured or identified all of the factors affecting our business or the extent of these factors’ likely impact, (ii) the available information with respect to these factors on which such analysis is based is complete or accurate, (iii) such analysis is correct, or (iv) our strategy, which is based in part on this analysis, will be successful.

(a)

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders before interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, acquisition and integration-related (benefits) costs, restructuring (benefits) costs, legal and other losses, impairment charges, gain or loss on derivative, loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain or loss on disposal of fixed assets, gain or loss on lease termination, gain or loss on sale of business, other expense (income), net, equity compensation, and system conversion costs. Adjusted EBITDA is not and should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Management presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful supplement to net income attributable to common stockholders as an indicator of operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes and as one performance measure in its incentive programs for certain members of its management team. Adjusted EBITDA, as defined, closely matches the operating measure as defined by the Company's credit facilities. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by the Company's consolidated revenue.

(b)

Restructuring costs were primarily comprised of employee termination costs, lease-related exit costs, and reorganization costs as part of planned cost savings initiatives.

(c)

Includes legal costs and other settlement charges as presented on the consolidated statements of operations, as well as losses pertaining to matters outside the normal course of operations.

(d)

Impairment charges of $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 were related to right-of-use assets and related property in connection with vacated leases in the first quarter of 2024.

(e)

System conversion costs include enterprise resource planning system costs related to the upgrading and integrating of our middle and back-office platforms, with certain development costs capitalized and amortized in accordance with the Company’s policies, and applicant tracking system costs related to the Company’s project to replace its legacy system supporting its travel nurse staffing business.

(f)

Adjusted EPS, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders per diluted share before the diluted EPS impact of acquisition and integration-related (benefits) costs, restructuring (benefits) costs, legal and other losses, impairment charges, gain or loss on derivative, loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain or loss on sale of business, system conversion costs, and nonrecurring income tax adjustments. Adjusted EPS is not and should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Management presents Adjusted EPS because it believes that Adjusted EPS is a useful supplement to its reported EPS as an indicator of operating performance. Management believes Adjusted EPS provides a more useful comparison of the Company’s underlying business performance from period to period and is more representative of the future earnings capacity of the Company than EPS. Quarterly non-GAAP adjustment may vary due to rounding.

(g)

Segment data is provided in accordance with the Segment Reporting Topic of the Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standards Codification.

(h)

Contribution income is defined as income (loss) from operations before depreciation and amortization, acquisition and integration-related (benefits) costs, restructuring (benefits) costs, legal and other losses, impairment charges, and corporate overhead. Contribution income is a financial measure used by management when assessing segment performance.

(i)

Corporate overhead includes unallocated executive leadership and other centralized corporate functional support costs such as finance, IT, legal, human resources, and marketing, as well as public company expenses and Company-wide projects (initiatives).

(j)

Gross profit is defined as revenue from services less direct operating expenses. The Company’s gross profit excludes allocated depreciation and amortization expense. Gross profit margin is calculated by dividing gross profit by revenue from services.

(k)

FTEs represent the average number of Nurse and Allied Staffing contract personnel on a full-time equivalent basis.

(l)

Average revenue per FTE per day is calculated by dividing Nurse and Allied Staffing revenue, excluding permanent placement, per FTE by the number of days worked in the respective periods.

(m)

Days filled is calculated by dividing the total hours invoiced during the period, including an estimate for the impact of accrued revenue, by 8 hours.

(n)

Revenue per day filled is calculated by dividing revenue as reported by days filled for the period presented.
