09:04 EDTHUMHumana to sell Concentra to Select Medical, Welsh Carson for $1.055B in cash
Humana (HUM) has reached a definitive agreement to sell the stock of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Concentra, to MJ Acquisition Corporation, a joint venture between Select Medical Holdings Corporation (SEM), an operator of specialty hospitals and outpatient rehabilitation clinics in the U.S., and Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe XII, L.P., a private equity fund, for approximately $1.055B in cash, subject to customary adjustments. Humana acquired Concentra in December 2010. Subsequently, the assets of certain privately-operated Community Based Outpatient Clinics were transferred into Concentra. Additionally, Humana has divested certain Concentra non-core assets over the past four years. The decision to divest Concentra demonstrates the company’s commitment to its previously announced business portfolio review. Humana will continue performing its review of the alignment and return potential of businesses across the organization to ensure each supports the company’s integrated care delivery strategy and earns the appropriate return on invested capital. The Concentra transaction is anticipated to close during the second quarter of 2015 subject to Hart Scott Rodino regulatory clearance and customary closing conditions. Humana anticipates using the net proceeds from the transaction to advance its strategic growth priorities, to fund additional share repurchases under its existing $2 billion authorization and for general corporate purposes. Goldman, Sachs & Co. is acting as financial advisor to Humana. Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP is acting as legal advisor to Humana. Concentra reported revenues for the year ended December 31, 2014 were approximately $1B. Humana anticipates the Concentra divestiture will be slightly dilutive to 2015 EPS excluding any one-time gain expected upon the close of the transaction.
