Evolent Health Completes Acquisition of Valence Health
The addition of Valence Health enhances Evolent’s market-leading value-based care platform
WASHINGTON, DC. October 3, 2016 -- Evolent Health, Inc. (NYSE: EVH), a company providing an integrated value-based care platform to the nation’s leading health systems and physician groups, announced today the completion of its acquisition of Valence Health. First announced on July 13, 2016, this strategic acquisition brings together two innovative companies that serve health care providers in the transition to value-based care.
The closing merger consideration net of certain closing adjustments is $219.4 million based on the closing price of Evolent’s Class A common stock on the New York Stock Exchange on October 3, 2016, and consists of 7.05 million shares of Evolent Class A common stock and $50.3 million in cash. The shares issued to Valence stockholders represent approximately 10.5% of Evolent’s issued and outstanding Class A common stock and Class B common stock after the merger. The terms of the transaction were amended relative to the agreement announced at signing and the closing merger consideration incorporates payments under the original earn-out related to a new contract with MDWise and also an adjusted mix of cash and stock to provide sufficient cash to fund the business that the sellers are retaining to serve state insurance cooperatives. As previously announced by Valence Health on September 26, 2016, Valence Health signed a contract to provide services to MDWise. Jointly sponsored by Eskenazi Health and Indiana University Health, the Indianapolis-based company serves more than 400,000 members and is among the nation’s largest provider-sponsored Medicaid plans.
The transaction also includes additional earn-out potential of up to $12.4 million, payable in Evolent Class A common stock, tied to new business activity contracted on or before December 31, 2016. Shares to be issued in relation to the earn-out are limited to 951,576 shares. The shares issued at closing and pursuant to the earn-out will be issued in transactions exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.
Evolent expects the acquired business, on a standalone basis, to generate revenues of approximately $80-85 million for the year ending December 31, 2016; however, Evolent will consolidate the results of the acquired business only for the period subsequent to the closing of the transaction.

Certain statements made in this release and in other written or oral statements made by us or on our behalf are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (“PSLRA”). A forward-looking statement is a statement that is not a historical fact and, without limitation, includes any statement that may predict, forecast, indicate or imply future results, performance or achievements, and may contain words like: “believe,” “anticipate,” “expect,” “estimate,” “aim,” “predict,” “potential,” “continue,” “plan,” “project,” “will,” “should,” “shall,” “may,” “might” and other words or phrases with similar meaning in connection with a discussion of future operating or financial performance. In particular, these include statements relating to future actions, trends in our businesses, prospective services, future performance or financial results and the outcome of contingencies, such as legal proceedings. We claim the protection afforded by the safe harbor for forward-looking statements provided by the PSLRA.
These statements are only predictions based on our current expectations and projections about future events. Forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to differ materially from the results contained in the forward-looking statements. Risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to vary materially, some of which are described within the forward-looking statements, include, among others:
The risks included here are not exhaustive. Although we believe the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance or achievements. Our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015, as amended, filed with the SEC on February 29, 2016, our Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the quarters ended March 31, 2016 and June 30, 2016 and other documents filed with the SEC include additional factors that could affect our businesses and financial performance. Moreover, we operate in a rapidly changing and competitive environment. New risk factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all such risk factors.
Further, it is not possible to assess the effect of all risk factors on our businesses or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Given these risks and uncertainties, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements as a prediction of actual results. In addition, we disclaim any obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that occur after the date of this report.
