Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
Members of management of Surgery Partners, Inc. (the “Company”) will be meeting with investors as part of the 2021 J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference the week of January 11th, 2021, including a presentation on Monday, January 11, 2021 at 2:50 p.m. (Eastern Time). Based on results through November 2020, the Company is now providing full year 2020 revenue guidance of $1.86 billion and reaffirming its previous full-year 2020 Adjusted EBITDA guidance range of $250 to $260 million. Consistent with previous management statements, the Company projects that in 2021, it will re-establish the multi-year double-digit Adjusted EBITDA growth trajectory and profit levels originally targeted based on a pre-COVID baseline. Correspondingly, 2021 Adjusted EBITDA is projected to be approximately $315 million. This information is included in a Corporate Presentation that may be used for these meetings. The Corporate Presentation is available on the Company’s website at http://ir.surgerypartners.com/events-and-presentations/presentations.
The guidance for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 is based on results of the Company through November 2020 and is subject to quarter- and year-end adjustments in connection with the completion of customary financial closing procedures, including management’s review and finalization of the results for the full year 2020 and to accounting review procedures by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, which have not yet been performed. These customary closing procedures, along with December results, could cause actual results to differ materially from management’s guidance. Please also refer to Item 1A “Risk Factors” in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019 and the Company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2020, June 30, 2020 and September 30, 2020, and discussed from time to time in the Company’s reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. You are cautioned not to rely on management’s guidance being achieved when making an investment decision in the Company’s securities.
Adjusted EBITDA is a financial measure that has not been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) and the Company’s definition and computation of this non-GAAP financial measure may vary from those used by other companies. This measure has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered isolation or as a substitute or alternative to net income or loss, operating income or loss, or any other measures of operating performance derived in accordance with GAAP. The Company defines the term “Adjusted EBITDA” as income before income taxes adjusted for net income attributable to non-controlling interests, depreciation and amortization, interest expense, net, equity-based compensation expense, transaction, integration and acquisition costs, loss on disposals and deconsolidations, net, impairment charges, litigation settlement and other litigation costs and certain other items that we do not believe are representative of our ongoing operations. The Company is unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income/loss for the periods presented because management cannot reasonably predict with sufficient reliability all of the necessary components of net income/loss for the periods presented. The determination of the amounts that are excluded from non-GAAP financial measure is a matter of management judgment and depends upon, among other factors, the nature of the underlying expense or income amounts.
The information in this Current Report is being furnished and shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) or otherwise subject to the liabilities under that Section and shall not be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing of the Registrant under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Exchange Act.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
