Wall Street Is Bullish on Humana Home Care Deal, 1Q Results

Humana Inc. plans to fully acquire home health provider Kindred at Home from private equity firm Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe (WCAS) and TPG Capital, the insurer said on April 27. (WCAS owns a controlling stake in MMIT, AIS Health’s parent company.) The insurer also reported strong financial results, with first-quarter adjusted earnings per share (EPS) of $7.67 beating Wall Street’s projected consensus of $7.07, or $1.04 billion in pretax income.

Humana CEO Bruce Broussard said during an April 28 call with investors discussing the firm’s first-quarter results that the Kindred acquisition “will enable us to more closely align incentives to focus on improving patient outcomes, and on reducing the total cost of care.”
