America Service Group Inc. (NASDAQ:ASGR) announced today results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010, and increased its guidance for full year 2010 net income.

Commenting on today’s announcement, Richard Hallworth, president and chief executive officer of America Service Group, said, “I am very pleased with our strong first quarter financial performance. Our contract portfolio continues to produce improvements in gross margins that warrant an increase in our full year guidance. Also, our strong balance sheet positions us well for growth in this era of tremendous new business pipeline opportunities.”

Income Statement Presentation Format as a Result of United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”) Related to Discontinued Operations

As noted in its 2009 annual report on Form 10-K, the Company is applying the discontinued operations provisions of GAAP to all service contracts that expire subsequent to January 1, 2002. In accordance with GAAP, the results of operations of contracts that expire, less applicable income taxes are classified on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations separately from continuing operations. The presentation prescribed for discontinued operations requires the collapsing of healthcare revenues and expenses, as well as other specifically identifiable costs, into the income or loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes. Items such as indirect selling, general and administrative expenses or interest expense cannot be allocated to expired contracts. The GAAP accounting presentation as it relates to discontinued operations and the Company’s expired contracts has no impact on net income, earnings per share, total cash flows or stockholders’ equity.

As a result of the application of GAAP related to discontinued operations, “healthcare revenues” and “healthcare expenses” on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations for any period presented will only include revenues and expenses from continuing contracts. The Company will also discuss “Total Revenues,” “Total Healthcare Expenses,” and “Total Gross Margin,” which will include all of the Company’s revenues and healthcare expenses for a period (i.e., healthcare revenues plus revenues from expired service contracts, or healthcare expenses plus expenses from expired contracts less share-based compensation expense). Total Gross Margin is defined as Total Revenues less Total Healthcare Expenses. Total Gross Margin excludes share-based compensation expense. Reconciliations of healthcare revenues to Total Revenues, healthcare expenses to Total Healthcare Expenses and gross margin to Total Gross Margin are found in the attached schedules.

Results for First Quarter Ended March 31, 2010

Healthcare revenues from continuing contracts for the first quarter of 2010 were $162.5 million, an increase of 30.6% over the prior year quarter. Total Revenues, which include revenues from continuing and discontinued contracts, for the first quarter of 2010 were $164.1 million, an increase of 25.4% from the prior year quarter. The increase in both healthcare revenues from continuing contracts as well as Total Revenues from the prior year quarter is primarily due to the commencement of services on April 1, 2009, under the Company’s contract with the State of Michigan Department of Corrections.

Healthcare expenses from continuing contracts for the first quarter of 2010 were $147.1 million, or 90.5% of healthcare revenues, as compared with $115.5 million, or 92.8% of healthcare revenues, in the prior year quarter. Total Healthcare Expenses, which include expenses from continuing and discontinued contracts but excludes share-based compensation expense, for the first quarter of 2010 were $148.8 million, or 90.7% of Total Revenues, as compared with $121.7 million, or 93.0% of Total Revenues, in the prior year quarter. The increase in both healthcare expenses from continuing contracts as well as Total Healthcare Expenses from the prior year quarter is primarily due to the commencement of services on April 1, 2009, under the Company’s contract with the State of Michigan Department of Corrections.

Gross margin from continuing contracts for the first quarter of 2010 was $15.4 million, or 9.5% of healthcare revenues, as compared with $9.0 million, or 7.2% of healthcare revenues, in the prior year quarter. Total Gross Margin, which includes continuing and discontinued contracts and excludes share-based compensation expense, for the first quarter of 2010 was $15.3 million, or 9.3% of Total Revenues, as compared with $9.2 million, or 7.0% of Total Revenues, in the prior year quarter.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2010 were $8.9 million, or 5.4% of healthcare revenues, as compared with $7.2 million, or 5.8% of healthcare revenues, in the prior year quarter. Included in selling, general and administrative expenses is accrued bonus expense related to the Company’s 2010 incentive compensation plan of $1.5 million in the first quarter of 2010 primarily due to the financial performance of the quarter. This compares to $548,000 of accrued bonus expense in the prior year quarter related to the Company’s 2009 incentive compensation plan. Included in selling, general and administrative expenses is share-based compensation expense of $418,000 and $464,000 for the first quarters of 2010 and 2009, respectively. Selling, general and administrative expenses, excluding share-based compensation expense, as a percentage of Total Revenues for the first quarter of 2010 were 5.1%, as compared with 5.2% in the prior year quarter.

Expenses related to the Company’s Audit Committee investigation into certain matters at Secure Pharmacy Plus, LLC, the findings of which were reported in March 2006, for the quarters ended March 31, 2010 and 2009, were $153,000 and $13,000, respectively. The expenses incurred in the quarter ended March 31, 2010, are primarily due to legal expenses incurred as part of the Company reaching a settlement in principle on February 19, 2010, regarding the shareholder litigation filed against the Company and certain individual defendants on April 6, 2006.

The settlement regarding the shareholder litigation, which is subject to final documentation as well as approval by the Court, provides for payment by the Company of $10.5 million and issuance by the Company of 300,000 shares of common stock and would lead to a dismissal with prejudice of all claims against all defendants in the litigation. The preliminary total value of the settlement, based upon the Company’s closing share price for its common stock of $15.42 per share on February 19, 2010, was approximately $15.1 million. The final value of the settlement will be determined based upon the Company’s closing share price at the time of final approval of the settlement by the Court. The settlement provides for price protection to the plaintiffs in the event the closing share price is below $14.65 per share at the time of final approval of the settlement by the Court. In such event, the Company would pay in cash the difference between the share value at the time of final approval and $14.65 per share.

In addition to its primary directors and officers liability (“D&O”) insurance carrier, with which the Company has settled all claims, the Company also maintains D&O insurance with an excess D&O carrier that provides for additional coverage of up to $5.0 million for losses in excess of $10.0 million. The Company has been and continues to be in discussions with its excess D&O carrier concerning the amount of their contribution to the settlement. To date, the excess D&O carrier has denied coverage of this matter.

Adjusted EBITDA for the first quarter of 2010 was $6.8 million, as compared with $2.4 million in the prior year quarter. As reflected in the attached schedule, the Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense or income, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, corporate restructuring expenses, Audit Committee investigation expenses, including the shareholder litigation expenses and share-based compensation expense. The Company includes in Adjusted EBITDA the results of discontinued operations under the same definition.

Depreciation and amortization expense for the first quarter of 2010 was $771,000, as compared with $622,000 in the prior year quarter.

Income from operations for the first quarter of 2010 was $5.7 million, as compared with $1.1 million in the prior year quarter.

Net interest income for the first quarter of 2010 was $20,000, as compared with net interest expense of $64,000 in the prior year quarter.

Income from continuing operations before income taxes for the first quarter of 2010 was $5.7 million, as compared with $1.0 million in the prior year quarter.

The income tax provision for the first quarter of 2010 was $2.4 million, as compared with $454,000 in the prior year quarter.

Income from continuing operations after taxes for the first quarter of 2010 was $3.3 million, as compared with $582,000 in the prior year quarter.

The loss from discontinued operations, net of taxes, for the first quarter of 2010 was $112,000, as compared with income from discontinued operations, net of taxes, of $117,000 in the prior year quarter.

Net income for the first quarter of 2010 was $3.2 million, as compared with $699,000 in the prior year quarter.

Net income available to common shareholders represents the Company’s net income excluding any amounts required to be allocated to unvested restricted shares for purposes of calculating earnings per share. Net income available to common shareholders for the first quarter of 2010 was $3.1 million, or $0.36 per basic common share and $0.35 per diluted common share, as compared with $674,000, or $0.08 per basic and diluted common share, in the prior year quarter.

Cash and cash equivalents were $41.5 million at March 31, 2010, as compared with $37.7 million at December 31, 2009. There was no debt outstanding at March 31, 2010 or December 31, 2009. Days sales outstanding in accounts receivable were 28 days at March 31, 2010, as compared with 25 days at December 31, 2009. Net cash provided by operating activities for the first quarter of 2010 was $4.8 million, as compared with $5.0 million in the prior year quarter.

Declaration of Quarterly Dividend

On April 26, 2010, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.06 per share on the Company’s common stock for the 2010 second quarter. The dividend will be paid on June 8, 2010, to shareholders of record on May 18, 2010.

Stock Repurchase Program

On March 4, 2008, the Company announced that its Board of Directors had approved a stock repurchase program to repurchase up to $15 million of the Company’s common stock through the end of 2009. On July 28, 2009, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized the extension of the stock repurchase program by two years through the end of 2011. This program is intended to be implemented through purchases made from time to time in either the open market or through private transactions, in accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission requirements. Under the stock repurchase program, no shares will be purchased directly from officers or directors of the Company.

The Company repurchased and retired 33,500 shares of its common stock under the stock repurchase program during the first quarter of 2010 for approximately $544,000. Since the inception of the repurchase program, the Company has repurchased and retired 891,850 shares of its common stock under the repurchase program for approximately $11.2 million. The timing, prices and sizes of purchases will depend upon prevailing stock prices, general economic and market conditions and other considerations. Funds for the repurchase of shares are expected to come primarily from cash provided by operating activities and also from funds on hand, including amounts available under the Company’s credit facility.

The repurchase program does not obligate the Company to acquire any particular amount of common stock, and the repurchase program may be suspended at any time at the Company’s discretion.

As of April 26, 2010, the Company had approximately 9.0 million shares outstanding.

This release contains certain financial information not derived in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes this information is useful to investors and other interested parties. Such information should not be considered as a substitute for any measures derived in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

The most directly comparable GAAP measures for the guidance provided by the Company are: healthcare revenues; healthcare expenses; gross margin; income from continuing operations before income taxes; income tax provision; depreciation and amortization; and interest, each of which will only include results from continuing contracts.

  • increased competition for new contracts and renewals of existing contracts;
  • risks arising from the possibility that the Company may be unable to collect accounts receivable or that accounts receivable collection may be delayed;
  • the Company’s ability to limit its exposure for inmate medical costs, catastrophic illnesses, injuries and medical malpractice claims in excess of amounts covered under contracts or insurance coverage;
  • the Company’s ability to maintain and continually develop information technology and clinical systems;
  • the outcome or adverse development of pending litigation, including professional liability litigation;
  • the Company’s determination whether to continue the payment of quarterly cash dividends, and if so, at the current amount;
  • the Company’s determination whether to repurchase shares under its stock repurchase program;
  • the Company’s dependence on key management and clinical personnel;
  • risks arising from potential weaknesses or deficiencies in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting;
  • risks associated with the possibility that the Company may be unable to satisfy covenants under its credit facility;
  • the risk that government or municipal entities (including the Company’s government and municipal customers) may bring enforcement actions against, seek additional refunds from, or impose penalties on, the Company or its subsidiaries as a result of the matters investigated by the Audit Committee in prior years or the previous restatement of the Company’s financial results;
  • the Company’s ability to expand its products beyond its traditional correctional health client base; and
  • the risk that recent legal settlements, including settlement in principle of the shareholder litigation, are not approved by the respective courts.

DISCUSSION AND RECONCILIATIONS OF NON-GAAP MEASURES

(Unaudited, in thousands)

This release contains certain financial information not derived in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes this information is useful to investors and other interested parties. Such information should not be considered as a substitute for any measures derived in accordance with GAAP and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. A discussion of the Company’s definition of such information and reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP measures (net income, healthcare revenues, healthcare expenses and gross margin) are included below.

ADJUSTED EBITDA

The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense or income, income taxes, depreciation, amortization, corporate restructuring expenses, Audit Committee investigation expenses, including shareholder litigation expenses and share-based compensation expense. The Company includes in Adjusted EBITDA the results of discontinued operations under the same definition.

The Company believes that Adjusted EBITDA is an important operating measure that supplements discussions and analysis of the Company’s results of operations. The Company believes that it is useful to investors to provide disclosures of its results of operations on the same basis as that used by management, credit providers and analysts. The Company’s management, credit providers and analysts rely upon Adjusted EBITDA as a key measure to review and assess operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is utilized by management, credit providers and analysts to compare the Company’s current operating results with the corresponding periods in the previous year and to compare the Company’s operating results with other companies in the healthcare industry.

Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under United States generally accepted accounting principles and should not be considered an alternative to net income as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities as a measure of liquidity. Because Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and is susceptible to varying calculations, Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

TOTAL REVENUES, TOTAL HEALTHCARE EXPENSES AND TOTAL GROSS MARGIN

The Company defines Total Revenues as healthcare revenues plus revenues from expired service contracts classified as discontinued operations. The Company defines Total Healthcare Expenses as healthcare expenses plus expenses from expired contracts classified as discontinued operations, less share-based compensation expense. The Company defines Total Gross Margin as Total Revenues less Total Healthcare Expenses.

The Company believes that Total Revenues, Total Healthcare Expenses and Total Gross Margin are useful measurements when comparing the Company’s performance for such items as selling, general and administrative expenses, interest expense or tax expense as a percentage of revenue between periods. As a result of the application of GAAP, “healthcare revenues,” “healthcare expenses,” and “gross margin” on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations for any period presented will only include revenues and expenses from continuing contracts.
