LHC Group, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013. For the quarter, the company reported net service revenue of $165,280,000 compared to $161,827,000 a year ago. Operating income was $10,637,000 compared to $15,232,000 a year ago. Income from continuing operations before income taxes and non-controlling interest was $10,256,000 compared to $14,730,000 a year ago.

Net income attributable to the company common stockholders was $4,969,000 or $0.29 per basic and diluted share compared to $7,400,000 or $0.43 per basic and diluted share a year ago. For the year, the company reported net service revenue of $658,283,000 compared to $637,569,000 a year ago. The effect of sequestration on full year 2013 results, effectively reduced revenue in the year by $13.5 million on a year-over-year comparative basis, which then caused a year-over-year reduction in EPS of $0.45 for the 2013 year. Operating income was $46,757,000 compared to $54,305,000 a year ago. Income from continuing operations before income taxes and non-controlling interest was $45,005,000 compared to $52,939,000 a year ago.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $45,915,000 compared to $74,772,000 a year ago. Cash paid for acquisitions, primarily goodwill and intangible assets was $26,920,000 compared to $6,758,000 a year ago. Purchases of property, building and equipment were $8,343,000 compared to $8,415,000 a year ago. For fiscal year 2014, net service revenue is expected to be in the range of $700 million to $720 million, and fully diluted earnings per share are expected to be in the range of $1.15 to $1.35. This guidance includes: the negative impact from the Medicare Home Health Prospective Payment System for 2014, which is an approximate $5 million reduction in Medicare revenue and $0.17 reduction in fully diluted earnings per share for 2014; the impact of the recently announced acquisition of the home health, hospice and community-based services operations of Deaconess HomeCare and Elk Valley Health Services, which is anticipated to be accretive to fully diluted earnings per share by between $0.05 and $0.10 for 2014; and an estimated $0.05 reduction in fully diluted earnings per share in the first quarter of 2014 due to the impact of inclement weather conditions in January and February, which caused agency closures. The company expects consolidated gross margin to fall between 40% and 41% of revenue in 2014. For 2014, the company expects all-in effective tax rate to fall between 41% and 42%.
