LOUISVILLE, Ky., Nov. 4, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ResCare, Inc. (Nasdaq:RSCR) today announced results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2010.

Third Quarter 2010 Financial Results

Revenues for the third quarter of 2010 were $403.7 million, an increase of 2% over revenues of $395.8 million for the same period in 2009. During the third quarter of 2010, the Company recorded an estimated pre-tax, non-cash charge of $65.6 million ($50.1 million, net of tax, or $1.73 per diluted common share) as a result of the impairment of goodwill at three of its reporting units. The Company also incurred pre-tax costs of approximately $2.0 million ($1.2 million, net of tax, or $0.04 per diluted share) related to the pending transaction with an affiliate of Onex Corporation.  Net loss attributable to common shareholders was $41.9 million, or $1.45 per diluted common share, for the third quarter of 2010, compared with net income attributable to common shareholders of $10.0 million, or $0.35 per diluted common share, in the same period of 2009. 

Adjusted net income attributable to common shareholders, which excludes the aforementioned impairment charge and transaction costs, was $8.1 million, or $0.28 per diluted common share, in the third quarter of 2010. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2010 was $26.6 million compared with $29.1 million in the prior year quarter.

Ralph G. Gronefeld, Jr., president and chief executive officer, said, "We made progress in the reorganization of our business lines to better reflect our company's growth initiatives, but it is an ongoing process.  We stood our ground financially in one of the most challenging economic times that has brought news just about every week this year of proposed state budget or service cuts.  I must commend our leadership and all our employees for their continued focus on our mission.  We are committed to being a partner with our customers and to finding the most effective, efficient ways to provide the much needed services our constituencies rely upon."


Although operations continue to perform in line with ResCare's expectations, the Company announced that, based on the uncertainty of potential adjustments to the goodwill impairment charge in the fourth quarter, it is withdrawing its previously issued earnings guidance for 2010.
