Molina Buys Behavioral Health Companies

The Providence Service Corporation (NASDAQ: PRSC) last week sold two of its subsidiaries, Providence Human Services, LLC and Providence Community Services, LLC, to Molina Healthcare, Inc. (NYSE: MOH) for a combined $200 million. PHS is one of the largest national providers of outcome-based behavioral and mental health services and operates in 23 states and the District of Columbia. Annual revenue was approximately $346 million for 2014. Providence intends to use 50% of the net cash proceeds from the transaction to prepay certain loans under its existing credit facility. The remaining net proceeds may be used for acquisitions, investments in the long-term development of the company’s other segments and the return of capital to stockholders through a share buy-back program, among other uses.
