Molina Healthcare Reports First Quarter 2019 Financial Results and Raises Full Year 2019 Earnings Guidance

Apr 29, 2019
  • Net income per diluted share was $2.99 in the first quarter of 2019 compared with $1.64 in the first quarter of 2018, which included a net benefit of $0.38 per diluted share for non-run-rate items
  • After-tax margin improved to 4.8% in the first quarter of 2019 compared with 2.3% in the first quarter of 2018
  • Medical care ratio was 85.3% in the first quarter, an improvement from 87.7% in the first quarter of 2018, excluding non-run-rate items in the first quarter of 2018
  • Premium revenue was $4.0 billion in the first quarter of 2019, a 9% decrease compared with the first quarter of 2018, which was in line with the Company’s expectations
  • The Company raised full year 2019 earnings guidance to $10.50 - $11.00 from $9.25 - $9.75, which does not include any future prior-period reserve development

LONG BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 29, 2019-- Molina Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE: MOH) today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2019 and raised full year 2019 guidance.

“These results are a testament to the achievability of the second phase of our strategy, which is to sustain the attractive margin position we had built in 2018,” said Joe Zubretsky, president and CEO. “While certainly not conclusive, our first quarter results validate our position that durable financial and operational improvement can and should allow us to sustain these margins, all while we begin to grow the top line again.”

Consolidated Results

First Quarter of 2019 Compared with First Quarter of 2018

Net income increased to $198 million from $107 million in the first quarter of 2018. Net income per diluted share increased to $2.99 from $1.64 in the first quarter of 2018.

Premium revenue decreased $371 million, or 9%, in the first quarter of 2019 compared with the first quarter of 2018, as expected. The decrease was primarily due to the previously announced loss of the Company’s New Mexico Medicaid contract along with the resizing of the Company’s Florida Medicaid contract and the related transition out of all but two regions.

The medical care ratio (MCR) was 85.3% in the first quarter of 2019, an improvement compared with 86.1% in the first quarter of 2018. Excluding the $70 million benefit of the 2017 Marketplace cost-sharing reduction (CSR) reimbursement recognized in first quarter of 2018, the MCR would have been 87.7% in the first quarter of 2018. The change in the overall MCR was due to:

  • The Medicaid MCR was 88.5% in the first quarter of 2019, an improvement compared with 90.8% in the first quarter of 2018. This was mainly due to improvements in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families and Aged, Blind or Disabled programs, partially offset by an increased MCR in the Medicaid Expansion program, primarily in California and Ohio.
  • The Marketplace MCR was 62.2% in the first quarter of 2019, compared with 50.6% in the first quarter of 2018. The prior year MCR was positively impacted by the benefit of the CSR, without which the Marketplace MCR would have been 66.8% in the first quarter of 2018. The year-over-year improvement primarily reflected increased premium revenue related to rate increases and risk scores that are more commensurate with the acuity of the Company’s Marketplace population.

The general and administrative (G&A) expense ratio was 7.3% in the first quarter of 2019, an improvement compared with 7.6% in the first quarter of 2018 primarily due to lower expenses and the timing of certain expenditures, which were partially offset by the impact associated with lower premium revenue.

Capital Plan Progress

In the first quarter of 2019, the Company repaid $46 million aggregate principal amount of its 1.125% Convertible Notes and entered into privately negotiated termination agreements to terminate the respective portion of the related 1.125% Call Option and 1.125% Warrants.

In April 2019, the Company repaid an additional $128 million aggregate principal amount of its 1.125% Convertible Notes and entered into privately negotiated termination agreements to terminate the respective portion of the related 1.125% Call Option and 1.125% Warrants. Following these transactions, the remaining principal amount outstanding of the Company’s 1.125% Convertible Notes is $78 million. In addition, the Company has received a conversion notice for $7 million principal amount that will be settled in August 2019.

UNAUDITED CHANGE IN MEDICAL CLAIMS AND BENEFITS PAYABLE
(Dollars in millions)

The Company’s claims liability includes a provision for adverse claims deviation based on historical experience and other factors including, but not limited to, variations in claims payment patterns, changes in utilization and cost trends, known outbreaks of disease, and large claims. The Company’s reserving methodology is consistently applied across all periods presented. The amounts displayed for “Components of medical care costs related to: Prior period” represent the amount by which its original estimate of claims and benefits payable at the beginning of the period was more than the actual amount of the liability based on information (principally the payment of claims) developed since that liability was first reported. The following table presents the components of the change in medical claims and benefits payable for the periods indicated:

UNAUDITED NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(In millions, except per diluted share amounts)

The Company uses non-generally accepted accounting principles, or non-GAAP, financial measures as supplemental metrics in evaluating the Company’s financial performance, making financing and business decisions, and forecasting and planning for future periods. For these reasons, management believes such measures are useful supplemental measures to investors in comparing the Company’s performance to the performance of other public companies in the health care industry. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as supplements to, and not as substitutes for or superior to, GAAP measures. See further information regarding non-GAAP measures below the tables.

The following are descriptions of the adjustments made to GAAP measures used to calculate the non-GAAP measures used in this news release:

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“EBITDA”): Net income on a GAAP basis less depreciation, and amortization of intangible assets and capitalized software, interest expense and income tax expense. The Company believes that EBITDA is helpful in assessing the Company’s ability to meet the cash demands of its operating units.

Adjusted net income: Net income on a GAAP basis less amortization of intangible assets, net of income tax effect calculated at the statutory tax rate. The Company believes that adjusted net income is helpful in assessing the Company’s financial performance exclusive of the non-cash impact of the amortization of purchased intangibles.

Adjusted net income per diluted share: Adjusted net income divided by weighted average common shares outstanding on a fully diluted basis.
