Nobilis Health Corp. Announces Estimated Revenues of $39.2 Million for the 4th Quarter 2014 and Estimated Annual Revenues of $83.6 Million for 2014

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Jan 12, 2015) - Nobilis Health Corp. (TSX: NHC) reports estimated revenues for the fourth quarter, 2014 of $39.2 million, an increase of $25.7 million or 190.0%, compared to $13.5 million from the fourth quarter of 2013.

Nobilis' estimated annual revenue for 2014 is $83.6 million, an increase of $52.5 million or 168.5%, compared to $31.1 million from 2013.

"Our revenue forecasts of $30 million for the fourth quarter and $74 million for the year 2014 were exceeded, due in large part, to the effectiveness of our marketing programs," said Harry Fleming, President. "We have forecast $205 million in revenue and $41 million in EBITDA for 2015. These forecasts do not anticipate acquisitions and are expected to come from our current operating assets," said Fleming.

"Our integration plan is well under way following the November acquisition," said Chris Lloyd, CEO. "With our marketing teams fully integrated at this point, we are in the process of rolling out combined marketing programs for several products in multiple cities," continued Lloyd.

EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, income taxes and depreciation and amortization. EBITDA should not be considered a measure of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles. Items excluded from EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing financial performance. EBITDA is an analytical indicator used by management and the health care industry to evaluate company performance, allocate resources and measure leverage and debt service capacity. EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows generated by operations, investing or financing activities, or other financial statement data presented in the consolidated financial statements as indicators of financial performance or liquidity. Because EBITDA is not a measurement determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and is thus susceptible to varying calculations, EBITDA as presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. Net income attributable to Nobilis Health Corp. common shareholders is the financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles that is most comparable to EBITDA as defined.
