Third Quarter Business Highlights

  • Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA, and Adjusted EPS exceeded previously updated guidance ranges
  • Double-digit year-over-year revenue growth across both segments
  • Adjusted EBITDA margin of 10.0%
  • Repurchased 1 million shares of common stock for $24.3 million
  • Scaled our locum tenens portfolio through the Mint and Lotus acquisitions, which closed in October

“Our third quarter 2022 results once again exceeded expectations. Our advanced technology stack is driving internal efficiency and productivity gains, as well as increases in client and candidate engagement. As market conditions continue to normalize, we are confident that we can continue to grow organically through new client wins, strong execution, and the continued demand for clinicians across the healthcare continuum,” said John A. Martins, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cross Country Healthcare. He continued, “Heading into 2023, we are well positioned and remain confident that we will meet or exceed our annual targets given the pipeline of MSP opportunities, the ongoing rollout of our proprietary vendor-neutral offering, Intellify, and continued investments in our people and technology.”

Third quarter consolidated revenue was $636.1 million, an increase of 70% year-over-year and a decrease of 16% sequentially. Consolidated gross profit margin was 22.6%, up 20 basis points year-over-year and flat sequentially. Net income attributable to common stockholders was $34.8 million compared to $23.4 million in the prior year and $52.9 million in the prior quarter. Diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $0.93 compared to $0.62 in the prior year and $1.40 in the prior quarter. Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) was $63.8 million or 10.0% of revenue, as compared with $30.1 million or 8.0% of revenue in the prior year, and $83.5 million or 11.1% of revenue in the prior quarter. Adjusted EPS was $1.07 compared to $0.61 in the prior year and $1.40 in the prior quarter.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, consolidated revenue was $2.2 billion, an increase of 110% year-over-year. Consolidated gross profit margin was 22.4%, up 40 basis points year-over-year. Net income attributable to common stockholders was $149.7 million, or $3.97 per diluted share, compared to $54.4 million, or $1.46 per diluted share, in the prior year.

Quarterly Business Segment Highlights

Nurse and Allied Staffing

Revenue was $612.3 million, an increase of 72% year-over-year and a decrease of 16% sequentially. Contribution income was $77.8 million, an increase from $40.6 million in the prior year and a decrease from $97.6 million in the prior quarter. Average field contract personnel on a full-time equivalent (FTE) basis were 12,524 as compared with 9,003 in the prior year and 13,494 in the prior quarter. Revenue per FTE per day was $526 compared to $425 in the prior year and $591 in the prior quarter. The increase in the average number of FTEs as compared to the prior year was primarily due to headcount growth in travel nurse and allied. As expected, average bill rates were down sequentially in the low double digits.

Physician Staffing

Revenue was $23.8 million, an increase of 27% year-over-year and 8% sequentially. Contribution income was $0.8 million, a decrease from $0.9 million in the prior year and $1.2 million in the prior quarter. Total days filled were 13,219 as compared with 12,187 in the prior year and 12,416 in the prior quarter. Revenue per day filled was $1,803 as compared with $1,540 in the prior year and $1,781 in the prior quarter. The year-over-year increase in revenue was driven by an increase in volume in hospitalists and certified registered nurse anesthetists. The year-over-year decrease in contribution income was driven by higher indirect costs.

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Highlights

Cash flow provided by operations for the quarter was $140.6 million, due to the strength of collections of accounts receivable. For the nine months ended September 30, 2022, cash flow provided by operations was $129.7 million compared to cash used in operations of $12.3 million in the prior year.

On August 16, 2022, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a new $100 million stock repurchase program.

(a)

Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders before interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), depreciation and amortization, acquisition and integration-related costs, restructuring (benefits) costs, legal settlements and fees, impairment charges, gain or loss on derivative, loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain or loss on disposal of fixed assets, gain or loss on lease termination, gain or loss on sale of business, other expense (income), net, equity compensation, and applicant tracking system costs. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Management presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful supplement to net income attributable to common stockholders as an indicator of operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes and as one performance measure in its incentive programs for certain members of its management team. Adjusted EBITDA, as defined, closely matches the operating measure as defined by the Company's credit facilities. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by the Company's consolidated revenue.

(b)

The Company released the majority of its valuation allowance on deferred tax assets as of December 31, 2021, resulting in increased income tax expense in 2022.

(c)

Acquisition and integration-related costs include costs for legal and advisory fees for the Mint and Lotus acquisition that closed on October 3, 2022 and the Workforce Solutions Group (WSG) acquisition that closed on June 8, 2021.

(d)

Restructuring costs (benefits) are primarily comprised of employee termination costs, lease-related exit costs, and reorganization costs as part of planned cost savings initiatives. Amounts for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 include a benefit associated with the early termination of the lease for one of the Company's corporate offices in the second quarter, which was previously restructured.

(e)

Legal settlements and fees include legal settlement charges as presented on the consolidated statements of operations, as well as legal fees pertaining to non-operational legal matters outside the normal course of operations, which are included in selling, general and administrative expenses. For the nine months ended September 30, 2021, legal settlements and fees resulted in a net benefit of $1.2 million due to a recovery in the third quarter of $1.6 million.

(f)

Impairment charges for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was comprised of $2.0 million related to right-of-use assets and related property in connection with leases that were vacated, $1.9 million primarily related to the write-off of a discontinued IT project in the third quarter of 2022, and $1.7 million in the first quarter of 2022 related to right-of-use assets and related property in connection with vacated leases. Impairment charges for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was comprised of $1.9 million related to right-of-use assets and related property in connection with leases that were vacated during the second quarter and $0.1 million related to the write-off of a discontinued software development project.

(g)

Loss on early extinguishment of debt for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 consists of a prepayment premium and the write-off of debt issuance costs related to the optional prepayment on our term loan made in the second quarter of 2022.

(h)

The gain on lease termination for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 is primarily a result of the early termination of the lease for one of the Company's corporate offices, recognized in the second quarter of 2022.

(i)

Applicant tracking system costs are related to the Company's project to replace its legacy system supporting its travel nurse staffing business. These costs are reported in selling, general and administrative expenses on the consolidated statement of operations and included in corporate overhead in segment data.

(j)

Adjusted EPS, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders per diluted share before the diluted EPS impact of acquisition and integration-related costs, restructuring (benefits) costs, legal settlements and fees, impairment charges, gain or loss on derivative, loss on early extinguishment of debt, gain or loss on sale of business, applicant tracking system costs, and nonrecurring income tax adjustments. Adjusted EPS should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Management presents Adjusted EPS because it believes that Adjusted EPS is a useful supplement to its reported EPS as an indicator of operating performance. Management believes it provides a more useful comparison of the Company's underlying business performance from period to period and is more representative of the future earnings capacity of the Company. Quarterly non-GAAP adjustment may vary due to rounding.

(k)

Nonrecurring income tax adjustment for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 reflects a valuation allowance related to a state rate change as a result of the WSG acquisition.

(l)

Segment data provided is in accordance with the Segment Reporting Topic of the FASB ASC.

(m)

Contribution income is defined as income (loss) from operations before depreciation and amortization, acquisition and integration-related costs, restructuring (benefits) costs, legal settlement charges, impairment charges, and corporate overhead. Contribution income is a financial measure used by management when assessing segment performance.

(n)

Corporate overhead includes unallocated executive leadership and other centralized corporate functional support costs such as finance, IT, legal, human resources, and marketing, as well as public company expenses and corporate-wide projects (initiatives).

(o)

Gross profit is defined as revenue from services less direct operating expenses. The Company's gross profit excludes allocated depreciation and amortization expense. Gross profit margin is calculated by dividing gross profit by revenue from services.

(p)

FTEs represent the average number of Nurse and Allied Staffing contract personnel on a full-time equivalent basis.

(q)

Average revenue per FTE per day is calculated by dividing Nurse and Allied Staffing revenue, excluding permanent placement, per FTE by the number of days worked in the respective periods.

(r)

Days filled is calculated by dividing the total hours invoiced during the period, including an estimate for the impact of accrued revenue, by 8 hours.

(s)

Revenue per day filled is calculated by dividing revenue as reported by days filled for the period presented.
