ARLINGTON, Va., May 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Privia Health Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRVA), a technology-driven, national physician enablement company that collaborates with medical groups, health plans and health systems, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

“We started 2021 with strong first quarter results that were at or above the high end of the guidance we provided in April as part of our IPO process,” said Shawn Morris, Chief Executive Officer, Privia Health. “We are continuing to add attributed lives across a number of value-based reimbursement programs, while organically adding providers in our existing markets. We will also remain focused on entering new markets, leveraging our capital-efficient operating structure to drive profit margin expansion, and executing on multiple opportunities to drive future growth.”

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2021 was $213.6 million, compared to total revenue of $212.9 million for the prior year first quarter (+0.3%). Operating income for the first quarter of 2021 was $7.9 million, compared to operating income of $6.5 million for the prior year first quarter (+21.7%). Net income for the first quarter of 2021 was $5.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.4 million, or $0.06 per diluted shares, for the first quarter of 2020. The first quarter of 2021 included approximately $1.4 million of one-time legal and other expenses related to the Company’s initial public offering (IPO).

  • Practice Collections were $344.1 million, compared to $327.4 million in 1Q’20 (+5.1%)
  • Care Margin was $52.5 million, compared to $47.8 million in 1Q’20 (+9.7%)
  • Platform Contribution was $25.5 million, compared to $20.3 million in 1Q’20 (+25.9%)
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $9.9 million, compared to $7.1 million in 1Q’20 (+41.0%)
  • Implemented Providers were 2,648, compared to 2,528 at the end of 1Q’20 (+4.7%)

Financial and Business Outlook
The Company provided full year 2021 guidance, as follows:

($ in millions)FY 2020 Actual FY 2021 Guidance  Y - Y % Change from FY 2020
   Low High Low High
Implemented Providers2,550 2,850  2,900  11.8% 13.7%
Attributed Lives682,000 730,000  750,000  7.0% 10.0%
Practice Collections$1,301.1 $1,445  $1,465  11.1% 12.6%
GAAP Revenue$817.1 $860  $880  5.3% 7.7%
Care Margin$187.6 $215  $221  14.6% 17.8%
Platform Contribution$82.6 $93  $98  12.6% 18.6%
Adjusted EBITDA$29.4 $34  $38  15.6% 29.3%

Key assumptions underlying the Company's full year 2021 financial guidance include:

  • Fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding of 110-120 million, including pre-IPO period
  • Non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $245-$255 million
  • An effective tax rate of 25-27%
  • Capital expenditures of less than $1 million

Management has not reconciled forward-looking non-GAAP measures to their most directly comparable GAAP measures of operating income and net income. This is because the Company cannot predict with reasonable certainty and without unreasonable efforts the ultimate outcome of Care Margin, Platform Contribution or Adjusted EBITDA due to market-related assumptions that are not within our control as well as certain legal or advisory costs, tax costs or other costs that may arise. For these reasons, management is unable to assess the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could materially impact the amount of the future directly comparable GAAP measures.

See “Key Metrics and Non-GAAP Financial Measures” for more information as to how the Company defines and calculates Implemented Providers, Attributed Lives, Practice Collections, Care Margin, Platform Contribution, and Adjusted EBITDA, and for a reconciliation of the most comparable GAAP measures to Care Margin, Platform Contribution, and Adjusted EBITDA.

Certain non-recurring or non-cash expenses will be treated as an add back in the reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA, the details of which can be found in the Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted EBITDA schedule near the end of this and in future quarterly financial press releases.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company reports and discusses its operating results using financial measures consistent with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). From time to time, in press releases, financial presentations, earnings conference calls or otherwise, the Company may disclose certain non-GAAP financial measures. The non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release should not be viewed as alternatives or substitutes for the Company's reported GAAP results. A reconciliation to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is set forth in the tables that accompany this release.

The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this press release are relevant and provide useful information to the Company's management, investors, and other interested parties about the Company's operating performance because the measures allow them to understand and compare the Company's actual and expected operating results during the prior, current and future periods in a more consistent manner. The non-GAAP measures presented in this press release may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. These non-GAAP financial measures are used in addition to and in conjunction with results presented in accordance with GAAP and reflect an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company's operations that, when viewed with GAAP results and the accompanying reconciliations to corresponding GAAP financial measures, provides a more complete understanding of the results of operations and trends affecting the Company's business. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Safe Harbor Statement

The financial results in this press release reflect preliminary, unaudited results, which are not final until the Company’s Form 10-Q is filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). This press release contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Such statements relate to our current expectations, projections and assumptions about our business, the economy and future events or conditions. They do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “aims,” “anticipates,” "assumes," “believes,” “estimates,” “expects,” “forecasts,” “future,” “intends,” “likely,” “may,” “outlook,” “plans,” “potential,” “projects,” “seeks,” “strategy,” “targets,” “trends,” “will,” “would,” “could,” “should,” and variations of such terms and similar expressions and references to guidance, although some forward-looking statements may be expressed differently. In particular, these include statements relating to, among other things, the possible effects of COVID-19; our future actions, business plans, objectives and prospects; and our future operating or financial performance and projections, including our full year guidance for 2021. Factors or events that could cause actual results to differ may emerge from time to time and are difficult to predict. Should known or unknown risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove inaccurate, actual results may differ materially from past results and those anticipated, estimated or projected. We caution you not to place undue reliance upon any of these forward-looking statements.

Factors related to these risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: compliance with applicable healthcare laws and government regulations in the heavily regulated industry in which the Company operates; the Company’s dependence on relationships with its medical groups, some of which the Company does not own; the Company’s growth strategy, which may not prove viable and the Company may not realize expected results; difficulties implementing the Company’s proprietary end-to-end, cloud-based technology solution for Privia physicians and new medical groups; the high level of competition in the Company’s industry and the Company’s failure to compete and innovate; challenges in successfully establishing a presence in new geographic markets; the Company’s reliance on its electronic medical record vendor, which the Privia Technology Solution is integrated and built upon; changes in the payer mix of patients and potential decreases in the Company’s reimbursement rates as a result of consolidation among commercial payers; the Company’s use, disclosure, and other processing of personally identifiable information, including health information, is subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and other federal and state privacy and security regulations; and those factors referenced in Part II, Item 1A, “Risk Factors” in the Company’s final prospectus dated April 28, 2021, filed with the SEC on April 30, 2021, and the Company’s other public filings.
