PACS hit $934.7 million in top line revenue for Q1 2024 (ended 31 March 2024), a 31.9% growth rate on a Year-over-Year basis in Q1 2023 of $708.4 million. Net income for Q1 2024 was $49.1 million vs. $37.6 million on a YoY basis, a 30.7% growth rate.

Additionally, the company now projects it will hit 2024 annual revenue of $3.65 billion to $3.75 billion, up at least $500 million on a YoY basis.

Nearly one month to the day after it went public on the New York Stock Exchange, Farmington, Utah-based PACS Group (NYSE:PACS) filed its first ever quarterly report as a publicly traded company.

And yes, it was a good report.

According to the company news release, for its first quarter (ended 31 March), PACS generated top line revenue of $934.7 million for the quarter vs. $708.4 million for the year ago quarter, representing a 31.9% growth rate in revenue.

Net income for the quarter was $49.1 million vs. $37.6 on a Year-over-Year comparison, giving PACS a 30.7% growth rate in net income on a YoY basis. {NOTE: PACS's $49.1 million net income level for Q1 2024 is the equivalent of 43.4% of the net income the firm achieved in all of 2023, ~$113 million.}

PACS also provided guidance that it now projects it will produce 2024 revenue in the range of $3.65 billion to $3.75 billion, which would be a YoY growth rate of upwards of 21%.

By its own description, PACS "... is a holding company investing in post-acute healthcare facilities, professionals, and ancillary services."

Currently, PACS

  • Operates 218 total facilities, most of which are Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNFs), while it also
  • Wholly owns 35 properties.

The Back Story on PACS Group

As noted in our 11 April 2024 write-up titled "Farmington-based PACS is Poised to Shock Utah's Biz Community with its $3.1 Billion IPO Slated to Hit Today, Thursday, 11 April 2024," the company was started in "... late 2012 when its predecessor was launched in California by co-founders Jason Murray and Mark Hancock."

In the ensuing 12+ years, PACS has grown mostly through a series of acquisitions that now see the company with healthcare operations and services provided in nine states:

  • California,
  • South Carolina,
  • Colorado,
  • Arizona,
  • Kentucky,
  • Ohio,
  • Texas,
  • Nevada, and
  • Missouri.

And that doesn't count its headquarters in Davis County not quite 1 mile immediately to the west of the Lagoon amusement park in Farmington on the opposite side of I-15 (Interstate 15).

Through its IPO, PACS sold ~21.4 million common shares at a $21.00/share price point, raising ~$450 million in gross proceeds.

Then, after market close on Monday (15 April 2024), PACS announced that its underwriters had exercised their option to purchase ~3.21 million shares of common stock from the two PACS co-founders, Murray and Hancock, at the IPO offering price of $21.00/share. {NOTE: The share price of PACS stock closed at $24.14 on April 15th, giving the underwriters an immediate gain of ~15% on their purchase price vs. the IPO offering price.}

As explained in the Utah Money Watch writeup titled "The Underwriters of the PACS Group IPO have Exercised their Option to Purchase ~3.21 Million Shares of Common Stock from the Company's Co-Founders," proceeds from this post-IPO sale went directly to the co-founders and not to PACS.

Additionally, even after the sale of the ~3.21 million shares of their PACS common stock, the company co-founders "... still own (a combined) 83.6% of the PACS common stock, which (based upon the corporate governance standards of the NYSE) makes PACS'controlled company.'

Last of all, at a closing price of $25.08 yesterday afternoon, PACS's market capitalization now stands at over $3.71 billion, a one-month bump on its valuation of over $600 million.

Taken in concert, I suspect 2024 will be a very interesting year for PACS Group.
