LOS ANGELES, May 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RadNet, Inc. (NASDAQ: RDNT), a national leader in providing high-quality, cost-effective, fixed-site outpatient diagnostic imaging services through a network of 351 owned and operated outpatient imaging centers, today reported financial results for its first quarter of 2022.
Dr. Howard Berger, President and Chief Executive Officer of RadNet, commented, “Despite being impacted in January by the Omicron variant of COVID-19, we produced the highest first quarter Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA(1) from our imaging center operations in our Company’s history. Revenue increased 8.2% and Adjusted EBITDA(1) increased 4.1% from last year’s first quarter, after excluding the AI reporting segment and adjusting for CARES Act Provider Relief Funds received in last year’s first quarter.”
“Given the positive trends we are experiencing in our business and the strong financial performance of the first quarter, we have elected to revise certain guidance levels upwards in anticipation of financial results that we project to exceed our original expectations. We have increased 2022 guidance ranges for Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA(1),” added Dr. Berger.
Dr. Berger continued, “In mid-January, we completed the acquisitions of two AI companies, Aidence Holding B.V. and Quantib B.V. The combination of these two companies with RadNet’s existing DeepHealth, Inc. mammography AI operations formed our new Artificial Intelligence reporting segment. The two acquisitions, along with DeepHealth, provide RadNet with the developing technology underpinning future offerings for widespread cancer screening programs for the three most prevalent cancers (breast, lung and prostate). We currently have three AI submissions pending approval with the FDA for advanced breast, lung and prostate diagnostic algorithms. Their ultimate approval, if obtained, should enable us to offer large-scale, cost-effective population health programs designed to positively impact the management of three of the most prevalent cancers. Though we project losses for the next 24 months from the investments we are making in these new technologies, we continue to be more convinced than ever that AI will have a significant impact on the growth and cost structure of our business in the coming years.”
Financial Results
For the first quarter of 2022, RadNet reported Revenue from its Imaging Center reporting segment of $341.2 million and Adjusted EBITDA(1) Excluding Losses from AI reporting segment of $41.7 million. Revenue increased $25.8 million (or 8.2%) and Adjusted EBITDA(1) Excluding Losses from the AI reporting segment and Provider Relief Funding increased $1.7 million (or 4.1%). Including our AI reporting segment Revenue of $599,000, Revenue was $341.8 million in the first quarter of 2022, an increase of 8.4% from $315.3 million in last year’s first quarter. Unadjusted for AI reporting segment Adjusted EBITDA(1) losses of $3.6 million in the first quarter of 2022 and $811,000 in the first quarter of 2021 and $6.2 million of Provider Relief Funding received in the first quarter of 2021, Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the first quarter of 2022 was $38.1 million as compared with $45.5 million in the first quarter of 2021.
Net Income for the first quarter of 2022 was $3.0 million as compared with $9.5 million for the first quarter of 2021. Diluted Net Income Per Share for the first quarter was $0.05, compared with a Diluted Net Income per share of $0.18 in the first quarter of 2021, based upon a weighted average number of diluted shares outstanding of 56.4 million shares in 2022 and 52.8 million shares in 2021.
There were a number of unusual or one-time items impacting the first quarter including: $20.8 million of non-cash gain from interest rate swaps; $2.2 million expense for legal settlements, $938,000 expense related to leases for our de novo facilities under construction that have yet to open their operations and $4.3 million of expenses related to our AI division. Adjusting for the above items, Adjusted Loss(3) from the Imaging Center reporting segment was $8.3 million and diluted Adjusted Loss Per Share(3) was $(0.15) during the first quarter of 2022.
Also affecting Net Income in the first quarter of 2022 were certain non-cash expenses and unusual items including: $11.1 million of non-cash employee stock compensation expense resulting from the vesting of certain options and restricted stock; $201,000 of severance paid in connection with headcount reductions related to cost savings initiatives; and $648,000 of non-cash amortization of deferred financing costs and loan discounts related to financing fees paid as part of our existing credit facilities.
For the first quarter of 2022, as compared with the prior year’s first quarter, MRI volume increased 12.7%, CT volume increased 10.1% and PET/CT volume increased 6.7%. Overall volume, taking into account routine imaging exams, inclusive of x-ray, ultrasound, mammography and other exams, increased 8.8% over the prior year’s first quarter. On a same-center basis, including only those centers which were part of RadNet for both the first quarters of 2022 and 2021, MRI volume increased 9.8%, CT volume increased 7.3% and PET/CT volume increased 5.7%. Overall same-center volume, taking into account routine imaging exams, inclusive of x-ray, ultrasound, mammography and other exams, increased 6.6% over the prior year’s same quarter.
2022 Revised Guidance
RadNet amends its previously announced guidance levels as follows:
(a) Net of proceeds from the sale of equipment, imaging centers and joint venture interests, and excludes New Jersey Imaging Network capital expenditures.
(b) Defined by the Company as Adjusted EBITDA(1) less Capital Expenditures and Cash Paid for Interest.
(c) Excludes payments to counterparties on interest rate swaps.

Dr. Berger highlighted, “We have increased our guidance ranges for Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA(1) to reflect the first quarter’s strong financial results as compared with our original budget. Though we remain vigilant about the economic environment, supply chain disruptions, inflation and the possibility of further variants of COVID-19, we have opportunities to expand our operations in all of our markets both organically and through new acquisitions and joint ventures.”

Our actual results and financial condition may differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements.

Regulation G: GAAP and Non-GAAP Financial Information
This release contains certain financial information not reported in accordance with GAAP. The Company uses both GAAP and non-GAAP metrics to measure its financial results. The Company believes that, in addition to GAAP metrics, these non-GAAP metrics assist the Company in measuring its cash-based performance. The Company believes this information is useful to investors and other interested parties because it removes unusual and nonrecurring charges that occur in the affected period and provides a basis for measuring the Company’s financial condition against other quarters. Such information should not be considered as a substitute for any measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliation of this information to the most comparable GAAP measures is included in this release in the tables which follow.

Footnotes
(1) The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, each from continuing operations and adjusted for losses or gains on the sale of equipment, other income or loss, debt extinguishments and non-cash equity compensation. Adjusted EBITDA includes equity earnings in unconsolidated operations and subtracts allocations of earnings to non-controlling interests in subsidiaries, and is adjusted for non-cash or extraordinary and one-time events taken place during the period.
Adjusted EBITDA is reconciled to its nearest comparable GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure used as analytical indicator by RadNet management and the healthcare industry to assess business performance, and is a measure of leverage capacity and ability to service debt. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income, cash flows generated by operating, investing or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity. As Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and is therefore susceptible to varying methods of calculation, this metric, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
(2) As noted above, the Company defines Free Cash Flow as Adjusted EBITDA less total Capital Expenditures (whether completed with cash or financed) and Cash Interest paid. Free Cash Flow is a non-GAAP financial measure. The Company uses Free Cash Flow because the Company believes it provides useful information for investors and management because it measures our capacity to generate cash from our operating activities. Free Cash Flow does not represent total cash flow since it does not include the cash flows generated by or used in financing activities. In addition, our definition of Free Cash Flow may differ from definitions used by other companies.
Free Cash Flow should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and the items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income, cash flows generated by operating, investing or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity. As Adjusted EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and is therefore susceptible to varying methods of calculation, this metric, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
(3) The Company defines Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Per Share as net income or loss attributable to RadNet, Inc. common stockholders and excludes losses or gains on the disposal of equipment, loss on debt extinguishments, bargain purchase gains, severance costs, loss on impairment, loss or gain on swap valuation, gain on extinguishment of debt, unusual or non-recurring entries that impact the Company’s tax provision and any other non-recurring or unusual transactions recorded during the period.
Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Per Share is reconciled to its nearest comparable GAAP financial measure. Adjusted Earnings (Loss) Per Share is a non-GAAP financial measure used as analytical indicator by RadNet management and the healthcare industry to assess business performance. Adjusted Earnings Per Share should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP, and the items excluded from Adjusted Earnings Per Share should not be considered in isolation or as alternatives to net income, cash flows generated by operating, investing or financing activities or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as an indicator of financial performance or liquidity. As Adjusted Earnings Per Share is not a measurement determined in accordance with GAAP and is therefore susceptible to varying methods of calculation, this metric, as presented, may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.
