HEALTHSOUTH Corp. (HLS) filed Annual Report for the period ended 2011-12-31.

Healthsouth Cp has a market cap of $1.91 billion; its shares were traded at around $20.26 with a P/E ratio of 17.2 and P/S ratio of 1.

Highlight of Business Operations:

Our consolidated Net operating revenues approximated $2.0 billion, $1.9 billion, and $1.8 billion for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010, and 2009, respectively. For 2011, approximately 92% of our Net operating revenues came from inpatient services and approximately 8% came from outpatient services and other revenue sources (see Item 7, Management s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, “Results of Operations”). During 2011, our inpatient rehabilitation hospitals treated and discharged 118,354 patients.

In 2011, discharge growth of 5.2% coupled with a 3.0% increase in net patient revenue per discharge generated 8.3% growth in net patient revenue from our hospitals compared to 2010. This revenue growth combined with continued disciplined expense management resulted in a $55.5 million, or 18.8%, increase in operating earnings (as defined in Note 23, Quarterly Data (Unaudited), to the accompanying consolidated financial statements) in 2011 compared to 2010. Net cash provided by operating activities was $342.7 million in 2011 compared to $331.0 million in 2010. Net cash provided by operating activities in 2011 included cash payments associated with our capital structure enhancements (as discussed below and in Note 8, Long-term Debt, to the accompanying consolidated financial statements) and a settlement discussed in Note 21, Settlements, to the accompanying consolidated financial statements. Net cash provided by operating activities in 2010 included an unwind fee of $6.9 million associated with the termination of interest rate swaps. See the “Results of Operations” and “Liquidity and Capital Resources” sections of this Item for additional information.

services. These other revenues approximated 1.8%, 1.2%, and 1.4% of consolidated Net operating revenues for the years ended December 31, 2011, 2010, and 2009, respectively.

Net patient revenue from our hospitals was 6.2% higher for the year ended December 31, 2010 than the year ended December 31, 2009. This increase was attributable to a 3.1% increase in patient discharges and higher net patient revenue per discharge. The growth in inpatient discharges primarily resulted from continued market share gains, including new hospitals. Same-store discharges were 1.4% higher in 2010 compared to 2009. Net patient revenue per discharge increased in 2010 compared to 2009 primarily due to positive pricing adjustments from Medicare and managed care payors.

Operating activities. The increase in Net cash provided by operating activities from 2010 to 2011 primarily resulted from the increase in our Net operating revenues and effective expense management. Net cash provided by operating activities for 2011 included $26.9 million related to the premium paid in conjunction with the redemption of our 10.75% Senior Notes in June and September 2011 and a $16.2 million decrease in the liability associated with Refunds due patients and other third-party payors. The decrease in this liability primarily related to a settlement discussed in Note 21, Settlements, to the accompanying consolidated financial statements. Net cash provided by operating activities for 2011 and 2010 included $7.9 million and $13.5 million, respectively, of state income tax refunds associated with prior periods.
