Commenting on the results, Dirk Allison, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are pleased to report solid financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and 2020, capping off another year of impressive growth and progress for Addus. These results were achieved despite some extraordinary challenges, including the substantial surge of COVID-19 cases during November and December. We commend the heroic work and dedication of our team of frontline caregivers and support staff who continue our mission to provide essential home care services and serve the needs of patients who count on Addus for safe and cost-effective care. As conditions surrounding the pandemic begin to improve and vaccinations become more widely distributed across the country, we are confident that Addus is well positioned to meet expected demand in a less restrictive and more favorable environment."

At December 31, 2020, the Company had cash of $145.1 million and bank debt of $196.6 million, with availability under its revolving credit facility of $112.6 million. Net cash provided by operating activities was $36.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 and $109.4 million for 2020, the highest annual level in Addus history.

Mr. Allison added, "In addition to organic growth, we continued to pursue strategic acquisition opportunities in 2020. Despite the pandemic, we were able to complete four acquisitions for the year with a total of approximately $84 million in annualized revenue. The integration process has gone well for these transactions, and we are excited to have these new providers and caregivers join the Addus family. We intend to continue pursuing aggressive acquisition objectives in 2021 with a strong pipeline in each of our personal care, hospice, and home health segments. Our capital structure supports this important aspect of our growth strategy and allows us to take advantage of future acquisition opportunities as they occur. 

"Looking ahead to 2021, we are confident that we are well-positioned to achieve further profitable growth both organically and from acquisitions. We remain focused on our mission to provide home care services that allow individuals to remain in the safety and comfort of their preferred home setting. We are proud of our ability to execute our strategy this past year, and we believe we have an exceptional team in place that provides a stable foundation for continued success as a leading provider of home care services. Addus offers a strong value proposition, and we look forward to extending our market reach while continuing to deliver value to our shareholders," Mr. Allison concluded.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The information provided in this release includes adjusted net income per diluted share, adjusted EBITDA, and adjusted net service revenues, which are non-GAAP financial measures. The Company defines adjusted net income as net income before the net-of-tax amounts of interest income from the State of Illinois, COVID-19 adjustments for temporary rate increases and expenses, M&A expenses, stock-based compensation expense, restructure charges, severance and other costs and loss on the sale of assets associated with Hospice Partners of Kansas. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as net income before interest expense, interest income, other non-operating income, COVID-19 adjustments for temporary rate increases and expenses, taxes, depreciation, amortization, interest income from the State of Illinois, M&A expenses, stock-based compensation expense, restructure charges, severance and other costs and loss on the sale of assets associated with Hospice Partners of Kansas. The Company defines adjusted diluted earnings per share as earnings per share adjusted for interest income from the State of Illinois, COVID–19 expenses, M&A expenses, stock compensation expense and restructure expense, severance and other costs and loss on the sale of assets associated with Hospice Partners of Kansas.  The Company has provided, in the financial statement tables included in this press release, a reconciliation of adjusted net income to net income, a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income and a reconciliation of adjusted diluted earnings per share to earnings per share, in each case, the most directly comparable GAAP measure. Management believes that adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA and adjusted diluted earnings per share are useful to investors, management, and others in evaluating the Company's operating performance, to provide investors with insight and consistency in the Company's financial reporting and to present a basis for comparison of the Company's business operations among periods, and to facilitate comparison with the results of the Company's peers. With respect to COVID–19 expenses, the Company views these expenses as unrelated to the Company's long-term performance since they are directly related to the sudden onset COVID-19 pandemic. With respect to COVID-19 temporary rate increases, the Company similarly views these as unrelated to the Company's long-term performance and has adjusted for those increases, net of the amount required to be passed through to caregivers as a condition of the increase.

(1) We define Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, interest income from the state of Illinois, other non-operating income,  taxes, depreciation, amortization, COVID expenses, M&A expenses, stock-based compensation expense, restructure expenses, other non-recurring costs and loss on the sale of assets associated with Hospice Partners of Kansas. Adjusted EBITDA is a performance measure used by management that is not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP).
