Rural/Metro Corporation (NASDAQ: RURL), a leading national provider of ambulance and private fire protection services, reported results today for its second fiscal quarter and six months ended December 31, 2010.

Michael P. DiMino, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Second-quarter activities reflect the continued strength of our growth initiatives and retention strategies as we effectively compete for market share. Our successes included a significant 911 contract win in Santa Clara County, California; the retention of key 911 and non-emergency contracts in central Florida; the acquisition of a new ambulance service in Colorado; and entry into new general transport markets."

Mr. DiMino emphasized the benefits of the Company's recent debt refinancing as it relates to growth. "We have created a capital structure that provides the flexibility to execute our growth plans, generate significant interest savings, and build long-term value for our shareholders," he said.

Second-quarter and year-to-date results include increases in historical insurance claims estimates related to workers' compensation, general and auto liability programs. "We initiated a comprehensive review of all processes and programs within the enterprise and are taking the actions that we believe are prudent as we continue to grow the business," Mr. DiMino said. "With regard to insurance, we remain vigilant in our efforts to manage all claims, further improve our risk, health and safety programs, and ultimately reduce accidents and employee injuries."

Fiscal 2011 Guidance

The Company reiterated guidance for adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2011 of $74.0-$76.0 million. Capital expenditure guidance was updated from $18.0-$20.0 million to $30.0-32.0 million for the fiscal year, which includes an initial $12.0 million in capital for the new Santa Clara County 911 contract that begins July 1, 2011.

Results of Operations for the Second Fiscal Quarter Ended December 31, 2010

For the quarter ended December 31, 2010, the Company generated net revenue of $141.3 million, an increase of 6.0% or $8.0 million, compared to net revenue of $133.3 million for the same period of the prior year. Ambulance services revenue was $123.3 million, an increase of 7.7% or $8.8 million, compared to $114.5 million for the same prior-year period. The increase included $2.8 million in same-service-area revenue and $6.0 million in new contract revenue. Same-service-area revenue growth was driven primarily by increased transport volume, as well as reductions in uncompensated care. Overall transport volume grew 9.0% in the second quarter, primarily due to a new emergency contract in DeKalb County, Georgia, and acquisitions in Kentucky and Colorado.

Fire and other services revenue for the quarter was $18.0 million, a decrease of 3.7%, or $0.7 million, compared to $18.7 million for the same prior-year period. The difference was primarily related to a decrease in fire service subscription revenue resulting from municipal annexation activity in Arizona.

Payroll and employee benefits expense for the quarter was $86.4 million, or 61.2% of net revenue, compared to $80.8 million, or 60.6% of net revenue, in the same period of the prior year. The year-over-year increase in expense was primarily related to growth in transport volume and $0.8 million related to executive relocation expenses, offset in part by a $0.7 million net decrease in expenses related to historical workers' compensation claims estimates and a $0.6 million decrease in employee health insurance expenses.

Other operating expenses for the quarter totaled $32.6 million, or 23.1% of net revenue, compared to $30.8 million, or 23.1% of net revenue for the same prior-year period. The year-over-year increase in expense was driven primarily by $0.6 million in professional fees related to debt refinancing activities and $0.5 million in higher fuel expense related to increases in fuel prices and transport volume.

General and auto liability insurance expense for the quarter totaled $8.7 million, or 6.1% of net revenue, compared to $5.2 million, or 3.9% of net revenue for the same prior-year period. The difference was primarily due to a $3.9 million net increase in expenses related to historical claims estimates.

On November 24, 2010, the Company concluded a debt refinancing and achieved its goals to reduce interest costs, extend maturities and maximize flexibility to operate and grow the business. The current debt structure includes a $270.0 million term loan due 2016 and an $85.0 million revolving credit facility maturing in 2015. In connection with the refinancing, the Company recorded a pre-tax loss on debt extinguishment of $8.0 million.

Including the loss on debt extinguishment, second-quarter net loss attributable to Rural/Metro was $3.8 million, or a loss per share of $0.15, compared to a net loss of $4.8 million and a loss per share of $0.19 for the second quarter of the prior year. Excluding the loss on debt extinguishment, net income attributable to Rural/Metro would have been $1.2 million, or diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.05.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations attributable to Rural/Metro in the second fiscal quarter was $13.9 million, a decrease of $2.7 million when compared to adjusted EBITDA of $16.6 million for same period in fiscal 2010.

Results of Operations for the Six Months Ended December 31, 2010

For the six months ended December 31, 2010, the Company generated net revenue of $281.5 million, an increase of 6.7% or $17.7 million, compared to net revenue of $263.8 million for the same period of the prior year. Ambulance services revenue for the period was $245.7 million, an increase of 8.5% or $19.2 million, compared to $226.5 million in the prior year. The increase included $9.8 million in same-service-area revenue and $9.4 million in new contract revenue. Overall transport volume grew 8.7% in the first half of fiscal 2011, primarily due to the contract and acquisition activities discussed above.

Fire and other services revenue for the six-month period was $35.7 million, a decrease of 4.3% or $1.6 million, compared to $37.3 million for the same prior-year period. The difference was primarily related to the decrease in fire service subscription revenue described above.

Payroll and employee benefits expense for the six months was $171.3 million, or 60.8% of net revenue, compared to $161.9 million, or 61.4% of net revenue, in the same period of the prior year. The year-over-year increase in expense was primarily related to growth in transport volume and $1.0 million in executive relocation expenses. These expenses were offset in part by a $1.7 million decrease in employee health insurance expense and a $1.5 million net decrease in expenses related to historical workers' compensation claims estimates.

Other operating expenses for the first six months of fiscal 2011 totaled $62.7 million, or 22.3% of net revenue, compared to $58.6 million, or 22.2% of net revenue for the same prior-year period. The year-over-year increase in expense was driven by $1.2 million in higher fuel expense related to increases in transport volume and fuel prices and $0.6 million in professional fees related to debt refinancing activities.

General and auto liability insurance expense for the six months was $12.3 million, or 4.4% of net revenue, compared to $8.6 million, or 3.3% of net revenue for the same prior-year period. The difference was primarily due to a $3.9 million net increase in expenses related to historical claims estimates.

Including the $8.0 million pre-tax loss on debt extinguishment, net income attributable to Rural/Metro for the six months was $1.6 million, or diluted EPS of $0.06, compared to a net loss of $1.9 million, or a loss per share of $0.07 for the same period of the prior year. Excluding the loss on debt extinguishment, net income attributable to Rural/Metro for the six-month period would have been $6.6 million, or diluted EPS of $0.26.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations attributable to Rural/Metro for the six months was $35.0 million, an increase of $0.6 million, compared to adjusted EBITDA of $34.4 million for the same period in fiscal 2010.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations and net income and diluted EPS attributable to Rural/Metro excluding the loss on debt extinguishment are key indicators management uses to evaluate operating performance. While adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations and net income and diluted EPS attributable to Rural/Metro excluding the loss on debt extinguishment are not intended to replace presentations included in the Company's consolidated financial statements under generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be considered an alternative to operating performance or an alternative to cash flow as a measure of liquidity, the Company believes this measure is useful to investors in assessing its ability to meet future debt service, capital expenditure and working capital requirements. This calculation may differ in the method of calculation from similarly titled measures used by other companies. A reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to income (loss) from continuing operations and discontinued operations for the three months and six months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, as well as a reconciliation of net income and diluted EPS attributable to Rural/Metro excluding the loss on debt extinguishment to net loss attributable to Rural/Metro and diluted earnings per share for the three and six months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, are included with this press release and the related current report on Form 8-K.
