Quest Diagnostics Reports Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results, Reflecting Continued Demand for COVID-19 Testing and Rapid Recovery in Health Care Utilization

10/22/20
- Third quarter revenues of $2.79 billion, up 42.5% from 2019
- Third quarter reported diluted earnings per share from continuing operations ("EPS") of $4.14, up 164.6% from 2019; and adjusted diluted EPS of $4.31, up 144.9% from 2019
- Third quarter cash provided by operations of $862 million, up 189.0% from 2019
- Will return $138 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act ("CARES Act") funding
- Raises outlook for full year 2020

SECAUCUS, N.J., Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Quest Diagnostics Incorporated (NYSE: DGX), the world's leading provider of diagnostic information services, announced today financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2020.

"Quest had a very strong third quarter, benefiting from continued demand for COVID-19 testing and the rapid recovery of health care utilization," said Steve Rusckowski, Chairman, CEO and President, Quest Diagnostics. "Quest has performed over 22 million COVID-19 molecular and serology tests to date, more than any other provider. We also developed and introduced several new innovations that are contributing to enabling the country's return to work, the classroom, and the athletic field.  I am extremely proud of all that Quest Diagnostics has accomplished throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and would like to thank our more than 47,000 employees for their hard work and dedication.

"We've seen further signs of the health care system returning to pre-pandemic levels, as our base testing volume, which excludes COVID-19 molecular and antibody testing, continued to recover throughout the third quarter. As we exited September, organic volumes in our base business were down mid-to-high single digits compared to last year. We are raising our full year 2020 outlook given our year to date performance and a clearer line of sight for both the base business and COVID-19 testing."

Mr. Rusckowski continued: "We are grateful for the CARES Act funding that provided our company with support earlier this year at a time of great uncertainty for our nation.  Several months into this pandemic, we do not require this funding.  As a result, we believe returning these funds to the government now is the right thing to do."

(b) 

The sum of reported and adjusted diluted EPS for the first three quarters of 2020 did not equal the totals for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 due to quarterly fluctuations in the company's earnings and weighted average common shares outstanding throughout the period as a result of the impact of COVID-19 and the temporary cessation of repurchases under the company's share repurchase program.

Note on Non-GAAP Financial Measures

As used in this press release the term "reported" refers to measures under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). The term "adjusted" refers to non-GAAP operating performance measures that exclude special items such as restructuring and integration charges, certain financial impacts resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, amortization expense, excess tax benefits ("ETB") associated with stock-based compensation, a gain on remeasurement of an equity interest, costs associated with the company's recently announced initiative with the Quest Diagnostics Foundation to reduce health disparities in underserved communities, and other items.

Non-GAAP adjusted measures are presented because management believes those measures are useful adjuncts to GAAP results. Non-GAAP adjusted measures should not be considered as an alternative to the corresponding measures determined under GAAP. Management may use these non-GAAP measures to evaluate our performance period over period and relative to competitors, to analyze the underlying trends in our business, to establish operational budgets and forecasts and for incentive compensation purposes. We believe that these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors and analysts to evaluate our performance period over period and relative to competitors, as well as to analyze the underlying trends in our business and to assess our performance. The additional tables attached below include reconciliations of non-GAAP adjusted measures to GAAP measures.

For both the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, represents the impact of certain items resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.  For the three months ended September 30, 2020, principally includes the reversal of $65 million of income previously recognized during the second quarter of 2020 attributable to the receipt of funds from the government that were appropriated to healthcare providers under the CARES Act and, to a lesser extent, incremental costs incurred primarily to protect the health and safety of the company's employees and customers.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, principally includes expense associated with a one-time payment to eligible employees to help offset expenses they incurred as a result of COVID-19, certain asset impairment charges, and incremental costs incurred primarily to protect the health and safety of the company's employees and customers.








The following table summarizes the pre-tax impact of these COVID-19 items on the company's consolidated statements of operations:

(c) 

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the pre-tax impact represents a gain of $70 million recognized in other income, net based on the difference between the fair value and the carrying value of an equity interest.  On August 1, 2020, the company completed its acquisition of the remaining 56% interest in Mid America Clinical Laboratories, LLC ("MACL") from its joint venture partners. As a result of the transaction, the company remeasured its previously held minority interest in MACL to fair value and recognized a gain.







(d) 

For the three months ended September 30, 2019, the pre-tax impact primarily represents a gain associated with the decrease in the fair value of the contingent consideration accrual associated with a previous acquisition, partially offset by costs incurred related to a data security incident.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the pre-tax impact primarily represents a gain associated with an insurance claim for hurricane related losses, and a gain associated with the decrease in the fair value of the contingent consideration accruals associated with previous acquisitions, partially offset by non-cash asset impairment charges, and costs incurred related to a data security incident.

(e) 

For restructuring and integration charges, COVID-19 impacts, other items and amortization expense, income tax impacts, where recorded, were primarily calculated using combined statutory income tax rates of 25.5% for both 2020 and 2019.  For the gain on remeasurement of equity interest, income tax expense was calculated based on an effective income tax rate on the transaction of 11.8%, which is lower than the statutory income tax rate due to a permanent difference in the financial reporting and tax basis of goodwill.  For the gain associated with an insurance claim for hurricane related losses in 2019, there was no net income tax expense as the company was able to utilize net operating loss carryforwards for which a valuation allowance had previously been established.  For the gain in 2019 associated with the decrease in the fair value of the contingent consideration accruals associated with previous acquisitions, there was no net income tax expense related to acquisitions in which the gain is non-taxable.






3)

Discontinued operations, net of taxes, for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 includes discrete tax benefits of $20 million associated with the favorable resolution of certain tax contingencies related to Nichols Institute Diagnostics, a test kit manufacturing subsidiary whose operations were discontinued in 2006.



4)

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the company did not repurchase any shares of its common stock.  For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the company repurchased 0.7 million shares of its common stock for $75 million.  As of September 30, 2020, $1.2 billion remained available under the company's share repurchase authorizations; however the company has temporarily suspended additional share repurchases under the existing authorization.



5)

For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, net cash provided by operating activities includes $138 million that the company received from the funds that were appropriated to healthcare providers under the CARES Act, which is included in accounts payable and accrued expenses.  The company has determined that it will return the CARES Act funds. 



6)

The outlook for adjusted diluted EPS represents management's estimates for the full year 2020 before the impact of special items. Further impacts to earnings related to special items may occur throughout 2020.  Additionally, the amount of ETB is dependent upon employee stock option exercises and the company's stock price, which are difficult to predict. The outlook for diluted EPS and adjusted diluted EPS is subject to the risks and uncertainties described under "Forward Looking Statements".  The following table reconciles our 2020 outlook for adjusted diluted EPS to the corresponding amounts determined under GAAP:
