Dirk Allison, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are proud of our solid financial and operating results for the second quarter, reflecting continued growth in a challenging environment. Our personal care services, which accounted for 84.7% of our revenue, were up 13.7% over the same period last year, including 9.7% same store growth, as most of our large markets experienced favorable revenue trends in the second quarter. We also benefitted from the Illinois rate increases for home care services that were effective July 1, 2019, with a further increase beginning January 1, 2020. As our country has experienced the ongoing and significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Addus has continued to provide the critical and essential home care services that allow individuals to remain in their homes and avoid the potential risks found in external settings and institutional healthcare environments. We commend the dedicated and heroic efforts of our caregivers and of all healthcare workers, who have worked tirelessly to meet this critical need."
At June 30, 2020, the Company had cash of $158.6 million and bank debt of $60.0 million, while availability under its revolving credit facility was $223.5 million. Net cash provided in operating activities was $30.4 million for the second quarter of 2020.
Mr. Allison continued, "Our top priority is to protect the health and safety of the patients and customers we serve and our caregivers and other employees. Our strong value proposition, including hospice and home care services, is more relevant than ever in this environment, and we believe we are taking deliberate and effective measures across our operations to meet the increasing demand for our services in a safe manner. Our senior leadership team continues to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company's operations, and we are pleased with our ability to quickly respond to the challenges we are facing. While much is still unknown, we remain focused on expanding our market presence and enhancing our home care services offering as we reach more consumers and create value for our shareholders."
"In keeping with this focus, we completed the acquisition of Montana-based A Plus Health Care, Inc. on July 1, 2020, and we are pleased to welcome that experienced management team and clinical staff to the Addus family. We will continue to pursue acquisition opportunities and have the financial capacity to execute this strategy, although we are approaching the consummation of any acquisition in the current environment with appropriate caution and diligence," added Allison.
Relief Funds, SEC Filings and Nasdaq Updates
As previously announced, the Company is not participating in the financial relief programs available under the CARES Act and the PPPHCE Act. Under these programs, the Company automatically received a portion of the $175 billion in funding to be distributed to health care providers through the Relief Fund, but the Company has returned all funds.
The Company also confirmed it has filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019, and its Form 10-Qs for each of the three-month periods ending March 31, 2020, and June 30, 2020, respectively, with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") following completion of its previously announced re-audit of the Company's financial statements for 2017 and 2018 by PricewaterhouseCoopers. As expected, the re-audit did not result in any material corrections to the Company's historical financial statements.
As previously announced, Addus HomeCare received correspondence from Nasdaq on May 14, 2020, notifying the Company that it was not currently in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5250(c)(1), as a result of not filing the Form 10-Q for the three month period ending March 31, 2020, and of the ongoing delay in filing the Form 10-K. Pursuant to Nasdaq rules, Addus HomeCare's securities have remained listed on the Nasdaq Global Select Market during a grace period until September 14, 2020, to regain compliance with the Nasdaq continued listing requirements. With the completion of the SEC filings, Addus HomeCare anticipates being able to now regain compliance.
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.
