(See the end of press release for a reconciliation of all non-GAAP and GAAP financial measures.)
For the first six months of 2022, net service revenues increased 9.5% to $463.6 million from $423.2 million for the prior-year period. Net income was $19.7 million for the first six months of 2022 compared with $20.5 million for the same period in 2021, and net income per diluted share was $1.22 compared with $1.28 per diluted share. Adjusted net income was $27.1 million compared with $27.4 million for the first six months of 2021, while adjusted net income per diluted share was $1.68 compared with $1.71 for the prior-year period. Adjusted EBITDA increased 5.4% to $47.5 million for the first six months of 2022 from $45.1 million for the first six months of 2021.
Commenting on the results, Dirk Allison, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “Second quarter performance reflected strong demand for our home-based care services, and we saw the expected improvement in our volumes coming off the Omicron wave in the first quarter. We have continued to execute our growth strategy and achieve favorable results in revenue and profitability with strong cash flow from operations. We were also pleased to see improved labor trends in our personal care segment, but like most healthcare providers, we continue to face a tight labor market for clinical staff in our home health and hospice segments. We are particularly encouraged by positive initial results from our efforts to implement new caregiver hiring and retention strategies in personal care, our largest segment.”
“Our results for the second quarter reflect positive trends in each of our operating segments. Personal care revenues, which accounted for 73.6% of overall revenue, were up 2.5% on a same-store basis. The 24.6% growth in home health reflects strong admissions and the addition of the operations of Armada Home Health and Summit Home Health that were both acquired in 2021. Our hospice segment accounted for 22.0% of revenues for the second quarter and included the first full quarter of the acquired operations of JourneyCare, which closed on February 1, 2022. We are seeing incremental improvement in our hospice care segment as median length of stay continues to normalize and was up to 23 days in the second quarter. While same store new admissions were slightly lower sequentially, this was offset by the addition of the JourneyCare operations in Chicago, where our system integration is substantially completed. We remain very excited about the opportunities for our Chicago area hospice and home health operations in our largest personal care market.”
Cash and Liquidity
The Company has focused on maintaining a strong financial position in 2022. During the second quarter, Addus paid down approximately $60.0 million on its revolving credit facility, reducing its outstanding bank debt balance to $196.3 million. As of June 30, 2022, the Company had cash of $120.9 million, with capacity and availability under its revolving credit facility of $376.4 million and $168.4 million, respectively. Net cash provided by operating activities was $56.5 million for the second quarter of 2022, inclusive of a net $14.2 million in ARPA funding.
Allison added, “We continue to see opportunities for growth both organically and through acquisitions. Our strategic focus is to target expansion opportunities in states where we have a strong existing presence. Acquisitions remain an integral part of our growth strategy, and we continue to have a robust pipeline of acquisition opportunities. We remain well-capitalized and have the flexibility to pursue acquisitions that meet our criteria in all our service lines.
“The COVID-19 pandemic and reduced availability of hospital beds over the past two years pushed more care delivery to the home setting, with favorable patient outcomes and satisfaction driving higher demand. Addus has been a leader in providing quality home-based patient care with a proven operating model across the care continuum, and we are well positioned for continued growth in the home care sector. We have continued to make investments in data analytic capabilities and technologies to drive efficiencies and enhance caregivers’ abilities to coordinate effective care in the home and we believe we’re currently managing labor and other industry challenges effectively. As always, our primary objective is to provide outstanding care to our patients and their families, and we look forward to the opportunities ahead,” said Allison.
Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company defines adjusted net income as net income before acquisition and de novo expenses, stock-based compensation expense, restructure expenses and other costs, gain or loss on the sale of assets, and retroactive rate increases from Illinois. The Company defines adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest expense, taxes, depreciation, amortization, acquisition and de novo expenses, stock-based compensation expense, restructure expenses and other costs, loss on the sale of assets, and retroactive rate increases from Illinois. The Company defines adjusted diluted earnings per share as earnings per share, adjusted for acquisition and de novo expenses, stock compensation expense, restructure expenses and other costs, gain or loss on the sale of assets, and retroactive rate increases from Illinois. The Company defined adjusted net income, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted diluted earnings per share to exclude net COVID expenses arising from the pandemic from the second quarter of 2020 to the second quarter of 2021.
