ALHAMBRA, Calif., May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. (“ApolloMed,” and together with its subsidiaries and affiliated entities, the “Company”) (NASDAQ: AMEH), a leading physician-centric, technology-powered healthcare management company, today announced its consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.
Financial Highlights for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2021:
|•||Q1 earnings per share - diluted (“EPS - diluted”) of $0.30 per share, up 173% from $0.11 per share for the prior-year quarter|
|•||Q1 total revenue of $176.1 million, up 7% from $165.1 million for the prior-year quarter|
|•||Q1 net income increased to $14.5 million, from $3.0 million for the prior-year quarter|
|•||Q1 net income attributable to ApolloMed increased to $13.2 million, from $4.1 million for the prior-year quarter|
|•||Cash and cash equivalents of $205.9 million at March 31, 2021|
Recent Operating Highlights:
|•||In January 2021, ApolloMed announced a strategic alliance and investment in New York-based CAIPA MSO, LLC (“CAIPA MSO”) whereby ApolloMed will own 30% of the post-closing total interests in CAIPA MSO on a fully diluted basis. With this partnership, ApolloMed will provide its proprietary technologies to CAIPA for the benefit of its physicians. The strategic alliance will provide ApolloMed with a foothold in the state of New York with the potential for expanding the alliance in the future. This transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2021.|
ApolloMed continues to maintain the following guidance for total revenue, net income, net income attributable to ApolloMed, EBITDA, and Adjusted EBITDA, based on the Company’s existing business, current view of existing market conditions and assumptions for the year ending December 31, 2021. ApolloMed is also providing the following guidance for the second quarter ending June 30, 2021.
|(in millions)||Three Months Ending||Year Ending|

|Net income attributable to ApolloMed||$||6.5||$||10.5||$||35.0||$||45.0|
See “Guidance Reconciliation of Net Income to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA” and “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for additional information. There can be no assurance that actual amounts will not be materially higher or lower than these expectations. See “Forward-Looking Statements” below for additional information.
Kenneth Sim, M.D., Executive Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer of ApolloMed, stated, “We were pleased to begin 2021 with strong results, achieving 7% growth on the top line and more than tripling net income attributable to ApolloMed to $13.2 million in the first quarter. This was primarily a result of organic membership growth in our existing IPAs, which drove the increased capitation revenue. Additionally, our risk pool settlements and incentives revenue increased during the period due to decreased utilization of our hospital partners. The bottom line also benefited from $2.4 million in decreased general and administrative expenses related to third-party consulting and professional costs, which is a direct result of our technology platform. We anticipate the trend of reduced utilization of elective care services will continue to normalize as a larger proportion of the population continues to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and the country maintains its steady path toward recovery.”
Dr. Sim continued, “We continue to work closely with the team at CAIPA MSO, in which we announced a strategic investment and alliance in January 2021. This partnership marks ApolloMed’s entry into the New York market, and we anticipate closing this transaction by the end of the 2021 second quarter. We continue to evaluate opportunities where we can integrate like-minded physicians and physician groups into our proven value-based care model, and as we remain confident in our ability to meet our target of 2 million managed lives by the end of 2021, we are reiterating our previously provided guidance targets for the year. We are also providing guidance for the upcoming quarter ending June 30, 2021, to provide greater visibility into our forecasts given the fluctuations we are experiencing in light of post-pandemic trends. We are committed to maintaining transparency and an ongoing dialogue with the investment community as we continue executing our growth initiatives in the months and years to come.”
GAAP Financial Highlights for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2021:
|•||Total revenue of $176.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, an increase of 7%, compared to $165.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, primarily due to (i) a $4.3 million increase in capitation revenue primarily as a result of organic membership growth at Allied Physicians of California, a Professional Medical Corporation (“APC”) and Alpha Care Medical Group, Inc. and (ii) a $6.8 million increase in risk pool settlements and incentives revenue driven by reduced utilization of our hospital partners resulting from the suspension of non-emergency medical procedures due to the continued effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.|
|•||Capitation revenue, net, of $144.7 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, an increase of 3%, compared to $140.4 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. Capitation revenue represented 82% of total revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.|
|•||Risk pool settlements and incentives revenue of $18.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, an increase of 60%, compared to $11.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.|
|•||Net income increased to $14.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, compared to $3.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, which was primarily a result of increased organic capitation and risk pool settlements and incentives revenues mentioned above and decreased general and administrative expenses of $2.4 million primarily attributable to a reduction in third-party consulting and professional costs due to efficiencies gained from the Company’s technology platform.|
|•||Net income attributable to ApolloMed increased to $13.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, from $4.1 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The increase from the prior-year quarter was primarily due to the reasons stated above and increased preferred dividends ApolloMed received from APC.|
|•||EPS - diluted increased to $0.30 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, from $0.11 per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.|

|•||Adjusted EBITDA increased to $29.2 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2021, from $13.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020. The increase from the prior-year quarter was primarily due to the increase in pre-tax net income discussed above.|

Note About Consolidated Entities
The Company consolidates entities in which it has a controlling financial interest. The Company consolidates subsidiaries in which it holds, directly or indirectly, more than 50% of the voting rights, and variable interest entities (“VIEs”) in which the Company is the primary beneficiary. Noncontrolling interests represent third party equity ownership interests in the Company's consolidated entities (including certain VIEs). The amount of net income attributable to noncontrolling interests is disclosed in the Company’s consolidated statements of income.
Note About Stockholders’ Equity, Certain Treasury Stock and Earnings Per Share
As of the date of this press release, 144,466 holdback shares have not been issued to certain former shareholders of the Company’s subsidiary, Network Medical Management, Inc. (“NMM”), who were NMM shareholders at the time of closing of the merger, as they have yet to submit properly completed letters of transmittal to ApolloMed in order to receive their pro rata portion of ApolloMed’s common stock and warrants as contemplated under that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated December 21, 2016, among ApolloMed, NMM, Apollo Acquisition Corp. (“Merger Subsidiary”) and Kenneth Sim, M.D., as amended, pursuant to which Merger Subsidiary merged with and into NMM, with NMM as the surviving corporation. Pending such receipt, such former NMM shareholders have the right to receive, without interest, their pro rata share of dividends or distributions with a record date after the effectiveness of the merger. The Company’s consolidated financial statements have treated such shares of common stock as outstanding, given the receipt of the letter of transmittal is considered perfunctory and ApolloMed is legally obligated to issue these shares in connection with the merger.
Shares of ApolloMed’s common stock owned by APC, a VIE of the Company, are legally issued and outstanding but excluded from shares of common stock outstanding in the Company’s consolidated financial statements, as such shares are treated as treasury shares for accounting purposes. Such shares, therefore, are not included in the number of shares of common stock outstanding used to calculate the Company’s earnings per share.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This press release contains the non-GAAP financial measures EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA, of which the most directly comparable financial measure presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) is net income. These measures are not in accordance with, or alternatives to GAAP, and may be different from other non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The Company uses adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental performance measure of our operations, for financial and operational decision-making, and as a supplemental means of evaluating period-to-period comparisons on a consistent basis. Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, excluding income from equity method investments, provider bonuses, impairment of intangibles, provision for doubtful accounts and other income earned that are not related to the Company’s normal operations. Adjusted EBITDA also excludes the effect on EBITDA of certain IPAs we recently acquired.
The Company believes the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures provides investors with relevant and useful information, as it allows investors to evaluate the operating performance of the business activities without having to account for differences recognized because of non-core or non-recurring financial information. When GAAP financial measures are viewed in conjunction with non-GAAP financial measures, investors are provided with a more meaningful understanding of the Company’s ongoing operating performance. In addition, these non-GAAP financial measures are among those indicators the Company uses as a basis for evaluating operational performance, allocating resources, and planning and forecasting future periods. Non-GAAP financial measures are not intended to be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for, GAAP financial measures. To the extent this release contains historical or future non-GAAP financial measures, the Company has provided corresponding GAAP financial measures for comparative purposes. The reconciliation between certain GAAP and non-GAAP measures is provided above.
