Team Health Holdings, Inc. (“TeamHealth” or the “Company”) (NYSE: TMH), one of the largest providers of outsourced physician staffing solutions for hospitals in the United States, today announced results for its fourth quarter and full fiscal year of 2013.

“We are pleased with our financial performance for the fourth quarter of 2013. In a challenging volume environment, we continued to deliver solid growth in net revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EPS. As a result of our operating focus, for the full year we generated 15.2% top line growth and 10.5% Adjusted EBITDA margin,” said TeamHealth Chief Executive Officer,Greg Roth.

“Our performance in 2013 demonstrates the resiliency of our balanced and integrated approach to achieving our financial goals. Despite the headwind from same contract volume declines, we realized positive contributions from all three elements of our revenue growth profile. For the fourth quarter, acquisitions provided the largest component of our consolidated revenue growth as we saw a benefit from 13 acquisitions that were completed in 2013 and late 2012. Net new contract growth was the second largest contributor over the quarter, driven by strong performance in new contract sales. Finally, same contract revenue contributed to growth during the quarter, driven primarily by contributions from Medicaid parity and an increase in estimated collections per visit. As we move into 2014, we remain well positioned with a solid acquisition pipeline and are poised to benefit from healthcare reform.   As such, for 2014 we expect to deliver annual net revenue growth of between 11% and 12%,including the benefit from Medicaid parity, and project Adjusted EBITDA margin for the full year of 2014 to be approximately 10.5%. We expect Medicaid parity to contribute between $26 million and $28 million of revenue for 2014.  Our guidance does not include other benefits that we may see from healthcare reform. These benefits include potential increases in average collection rates from an improvement in our payor mix or incremental volume growth from newly insured patients.  At this initial stage of the implementation process, we believe it is too early to accurately forecast the number of patients to be converted during the year and the potential benefits to the Company’s 2014 financial results from the expansion of healthcare coverage. We anticipate having additional visibility as the enrollment process continues to unfold during 2014 and will provide updates at that time,” concluded Mr. Roth.

Lynn Massingale, M.D., Executive Chairman of TeamHealth, added, “We are pleased with the successful execution of our growth plan in 2013 and we look forward to delivering strong operating and financial performance in 2014.  We continued to utilize our national infrastructure and strong physician leadership to drive operational improvements across our growing network of high quality affiliated providers, while making investments in patient safety, risk management, operational efficiency and customer satisfaction.  Our priority is to deliver the highest quality of patient care and our proprietary information technology systems and infrastructure investments enable us to accomplish these goals.”
