Magellan Health Services Provides 2012 Financial Guidance
AVON, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Magellan Health Services Inc. (NASDAQ: MGLN) today announced that, for 2012, it expects to generate net revenue in the range of $3.2 billion to $3.4 billion, and net income in the range of $91 million to $109 million, which translates into diluted earnings per share in the range of $3.25 to $3.89. The company also expects segment profit (which represents income from continuing operations before stock compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income, gain on the sale of assets, special charges or benefits, and income taxes) for 2012 to be in the range of $240 million to $260 million.
The company confirmed its guidance for 2011, projecting full year net income in the range of $116.5 million to $135.5 million, segment profit of $255 million to $275 million, and cash flow from operations of $180.5 million to $211.5 million, excluding the net shift of restricted funds between cash and investments. Magellan increased its diluted earnings per share guidance to a range of $3.75 to $4.36 per share based on share repurchases through the close of business on December 12, 2011, but excluding any potential repurchases that may occur during the remainder of the year. Magellan reported year-to-date share repurchases through December 12, 2011, of approximately 8.1 million shares for a total cost of $398 million.
Additionally, the company announced a new Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility totaling $230 million, which replaces the current $80 million facility.
Magellan expects to complete 2011 with solid overall results, and is well-positioned to take advantage of marketplace opportunities in the future, said René Lerer, M.D., chairman and chief executive officer. Weve had important new business sales, sharpened our overall business strategy particularly as it relates to Medicaid and pharmacy, and made initial investments in people and capabilities that create the foundation upon which we will build and innovate. In 2012, we will materially increase our investments in our Medicaid and Pharmacy initiatives. We are further expanding our Medicaid footprint to provide comprehensive management for special populations, and leveraging our unique expertise in medical pharmacy management and Medicaid pharmacy capabilities to develop a comprehensive solution for the management of total drug spend. Retaining and growing existing business by developing new products and services, expanding into new markets and cross-selling across our customer base also remain key priorities for the company.
The bank financing plan that we announced today, coupled with our existing strong cash flow, allows us additional flexibility to support our strategy, said Jonathan N. Rubin, chief financial officer. Current availability of financing in the market and our ability to obtain favorable terms made this the right time to increase our credit facility. The company has also deployed capital to enhance shareholder value. We completed our prior $450 million share repurchase program, and have started repurchasing shares under the new $200 million program authorized by our Board of Directors in October.
