US Physical Therapy Inc (USPH) recently reported its earnings for the quarter and nine months that ended September 30, 2016.
USPH’s net revenues in the third quarter of 2016 increased 5.1% to $88.3 million from $84.0 million in the third quarter of 2015. Income before taxes including non-controlling interests was $11.8 million as compared to $11.7 million in the comparable 2015 period. Due primarily to a higher estimated accrued tax rate of 39.8% for the recent quarter as compared to 38.6% in the third quarter of 2015, the income attributable to common shareholders from operations prior to revaluation of redeemable non-controlling interests, net of tax (“operating results”) declined slightly to $5.7 million from $5.8 million. Diluted earnings per share from operating results was $0.46 in the third quarter of 2016 as compared to $0.47 in the third quarter of 2015.
USPH’s net revenues for the first nine months of 2016 increased 8.6% to $265.7 million from $244.6 million in the first nine months of 2015. USPH’s operating results for the first nine months of 2016 increased 11.2% to $18.1 million as compared to $16.3 million in the first nine months of 2015. Diluted earnings per share from operating results were $1.45 for the 2016 period as compared to $1.32 in the comparable 2015 period, according to a media release from US Physical Therapy Inc.
“While we got off to a slower than expected start in July, visits rebounded sequentially in August and September. Additionally, our development activity is strong and we expect to finish this year with very solid de novo as well as acquisition-related growth,” says Chris Reading, CEO of US Physical Therapy Inc, in the release.
