“Our results for the third quarter were in line with our expectations despite a further decline in premium rate business and higher than anticipated healthcare costs,” said William J. Grubbs, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We are encouraged by the significant recent increase in demand we are experiencing across many of our key customers and geographies especially in travel nurse, our largest service line. To capitalize on this favorable trend, we are making investments in producer headcount. Therefore, we are guiding to a sequentially flat Adjusted EBITDA, reflecting the investments and higher healthcare costs. The anticipated ramp from our recent MSP wins, investments, and recent productivity initiatives, along with favorable market conditions, position us well as we enter 2019.”

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

This press release and accompanying financial statement tables reference non-GAAP financial measures. Such non-GAAP financial measures are provided as additional information and should not be considered substitutes for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Such non-GAAP financial measures are provided for consistency and comparability to prior year results; furthermore, management believes they are useful to investors when evaluating the Company's performance as they exclude certain items that management believes are not indicative of the Company's future operating performance. Pro forma measures, if applicable, are adjusted to include the results of our acquisitions, and exclude the results of divestments, as if the transactions occurred in the beginning of the periods mentioned.]Such non-GAAP financial measures may differ materially from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. Beginning with the third quarter of 2018, the Company modified its non-GAAP performance measures to exclude expenses related to the replacement of its legacy travel nurse front-end system. The financial statement tables that accompany this press release include a reconciliation of each non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure and a more detailed discussion of each financial measure; as such, the financial statement tables should be read in conjunction with the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures.

(a)   Acquisition-related contingent consideration represents the fair value and accretion adjustments to the contingent consideration liabilities for the Mediscan acquisition that closed on October 30, 2015 and the US Resources Healthcare acquisition that closed on December 1, 2016.
(b)   Acquisition and integration costs are primarily related to the Advantage RN, LLC acquisition that closed effective July 1, 2017.
(c)   Restructuring costs related to severance and lease consolidations incurred as part of separate and discrete cost savings initiatives.
(d)   Gain on derivative liability for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 represents the change in the fair value of embedded features of the Convertible Notes.
(e)   Loss on early extinguishment of debt for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 is related to an early payment of $5.0 million made in the third quarter on the Company's term loans. For the nine months ended September 30, 2017, the loss on early extinguishment of debt is related to the Company's settlement of its Convertible Notes on March 17, 2017.
(f)   Due to the net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2018, 130,965 shares were excluded from diluted weighted average shares. When applying the if-converted method to our Convertible Notes, 967,342 shares were included in diluted weighted average shares for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.
(g)   Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) financial measure, is defined as net income attributable to common shareholders before interest expense, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization, acquisition-related contingent consideration, acquisition and integration costs, restructuring costs, gain on derivative liability, loss on early extinguishment of debt, other income, net, equity compensation, legacy system replacement costs, and includes net income attributable to noncontrolling interest in subsidiary. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Management presents Adjusted EBITDA because it believes that Adjusted EBITDA is a useful supplement to net income attributable to common shareholders as an indicator of operating performance. Management uses Adjusted EBITDA for planning purposes and as one performance measure in its incentive programs for certain members of its management team. Adjusted EBITDA, as defined, closely matches the operating measure typically used in the Company's credit facilities in calculating various ratios. Adjusted EBITDA Margin is calculated by dividing Adjusted EBITDA by the Company's consolidated revenue.
(h)   Legacy system replacement costs for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 are related to the Company's project to replace its legacy system supporting its travel nurse staffing business. These costs are reported in selling, general, and administrative expenses on the consolidated statement of operations and included in unallocated corporate overhead in segment data.
(i)   Adjusted EPS, a non-GAAP financial measure, is defined as net income attributable to common shareholders per diluted share before the diluted EPS impact of acquisition-related contingent consideration, acquisition and integration costs, restructuring costs, gain on derivative liability, loss on early extinguishment of debt, legacy system replacement costs, and nonrecurring income tax adjustments. Adjusted EPS should not be considered a measure of financial performance under GAAP. Management presents Adjusted EPS because it believes that Adjusted EPS is a useful supplement to its reported EPS as an indicator of operating performance. Management believes it provides a more useful comparison of the Company's underlying business performance from period to period and is more representative of the future earnings capacity of the Company.
(j)   Due to the Company previously maintaining a full valuation allowance, there was no tax impact on non-GAAP measures in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017.
(k)   Segment data provided is in accordance with the Segment Reporting Topic of the FASB ASC.
(l)   Contribution income is defined as income from operations before depreciation and amortization, acquisition-related contingent consideration, acquisition and integration costs, restructuring costs, core system replacement costs, and corporate expenses not specifically identified to a reporting segment. Contribution income is a financial measure used by management when assessing segment performance.
(m)   Unallocated corporate overhead includes corporate compensation and benefits, and general and administrative expenses including rent and utilities, computer supplies and expenses, insurance, professional expenses, corporate-wide projects (initiatives), and public company expense.
(n)   Gross profit is defined as revenue from services less direct operating expenses. The Company's gross profit excludes allocated depreciation and amortization expense. Gross profit margin is calculated by dividing gross profit by revenue from services.
(o)   FTEs represent the average number of Nurse and Allied Staffing contract personnel on a full-time equivalent basis.
(p)   Average revenue per FTE per day is calculated by dividing the Nurse and Allied Staffing revenue per FTE by the number of days worked in the respective periods. Nurse and Allied Staffing revenue also includes revenue from the permanent placement of nurses.
(q)   Days filled is calculated by dividing the total hours invoiced during the period, including an estimate for the impact of accrued revenue, by 8 hours. Prior periods have been recalculated to include the impact of the accrued revenue.
(r)   Revenue per day filled is calculated by dividing revenue as reported by days filled for the period presented. Prior periods have been recalculated to include the impact of the accrued revenue and days.
