-- UnitedHealth Group’s second quarter 2017 revenues of $50.1 billion grew 7.7 percent or $3.6 billion year-over-year. UnitedHealthcare’s withdrawals from ACA Individual markets, combined with the ACA health insurance tax deferral, reduced consolidated second quarter 2017 revenues by approximately $1.8 billion and lowered the revenue growth rate by 4.5 percent. These factors affect comparability of 2017 results with prior periods throughout the financial statements.

-- Second quarter earnings from operations grew 16.5 percent year-over-year to $3.7 billion. Adjusted net earnings grew 26 percent to $2.46 per share from $1.96 per share in the second quarter of 2016.

-- Cash flows from operations were $2.2 billion in second quarter 2017, up 29 percent year-over-year.

-- The second quarter 2017 consolidated medical care ratio of 82.2 percent increased 20 basis points year-over-year, as a 150 basis point increase from the health insurance tax deferral was offset by improved business mix, product performance and favorable reserve development. Medical reserves developed favorably by $200 million in second quarter 2017, compared to unfavorable development of $100 million in second quarter 2016.

-- The second quarter 2017 operating cost ratio of 14.6 percent was flat year-over-year, as the growing mix of revenues from care delivery businesses offset the effect of the health insurance tax deferral.

-- The second quarter 2017 income tax rate declined to 31.5 percent, primarily due to the 2017 moratorium on the nondeductible health insurance tax.

-- Second quarter 2017 days claims payable of 50 days decreased one day year-over-year, due to ACA Individual market withdrawals, and was stable sequentially. Second quarter days sales outstanding rose one day year-over-year and sequentially to 19 days, due to continued growth in government-based offerings.

-- Annualized return on shareholders’ equity increased 190 basis points year-over-year to 21.5 percent in second quarter, while the debt to total capital ratio decreased 650 basis points to 41.3 percent at June 30, 2017.

-- Dividends paid to shareholders grew 22 percent year-over-year to $724 million in the second quarter, reflecting the 20 percent increase in the annual dividend payment rate to $3.00 per share in June 2017. At June 30, 2017, the Company had repurchased 6.4 million shares year-to-date for $1.045 billion, including 2.2 million shares in the second quarter.

UnitedHealthcare grew to serve 2.5 million more people year-over-year, including 195,000 in the second quarter of 2017, across its employer-sponsored, Medicare, Medicaid and international medical benefit offerings. Second quarter 2017 earnings from operations for UnitedHealthcare of $2.2 billion increased $269 million or 13.9 percent from 2016, driven by strong, diversified revenue growth and a modest improvement in operating margins. -- UnitedHealthcare Employer & Individual second quarter 2017 revenues of $13 billion decreased $543 million year-over-year due to the effects of the previously disclosed Individual market withdrawals and health insurance tax deferral. These factors offset revenue increases from strong growth of 765,000 people in commercial group-based benefit offerings, including 590,000 in commercial risk-based arrangements, and rate increases commensurate with medical cost trends. In the second quarter, commercial risk-based group business grew by 70,000 people and fee-based programs decreased by 45,000 people, due to seasonal reductions in workforce at certain customers.

-- UnitedHealthcare Medicare & Retirement grew revenues by $2.5 billion or 17.2 percent year-over-year to $16.7 billion in second quarter 2017. UnitedHealthcare served 8.7 million seniors with medical benefit products at quarter end, growth of 935,000 people or 12 percent year-over-year.

The statements, estimates, projections, guidance or outlook contained in this document include "forward-looking" statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (PSLRA). These statements are intended to take advantage of the "safe harbor" provisions of the PSLRA.

These statements may contain information about financial prospects, economic conditions and trends and involve risks and uncertainties. We caution that actual results could differ materially from those that management expects, depending on the outcome of certain factors.

Some factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from results discussed or implied in the forward-looking statements include: our ability to effectively estimate, price for and manage our medical costs, including the impact of any new coverage requirements; new laws or regulations, or changes in existing laws or regulations, or their enforcement or application, including increases in medical, administrative, technology or other costs or decreases in enrollment resulting from U.S., Brazilian and other jurisdictions’ regulations affecting the health care industry; the outcome of the Department of Justice’s legal actions relating to risk adjustment submission matters; our ability to maintain and achieve improvement in CMS star ratings and other quality scores that impact revenue; reductions in revenue or delays to cash flows received under Medicare, Medicaid and other government programs, including the effects of a prolonged U.S. government shutdown or debt ceiling constraints; changes in Medicare, including changes in payment methodology, the CMS star ratings program or the application of risk adjustment data validation audits; cyber-attacks or other privacy or data security incidents; failure to comply with privacy and data security regulations; regulatory and other risks and uncertainties of the pharmacy benefits management industry; competitive pressures, which could affect our ability to maintain or increase our market share; changes in or challenges to our public sector contract awards; our ability to execute contracts on competitive terms with physicians, hospitals and other service providers; failure to achieve targeted operating cost productivity improvements, including savings resulting from technology enhancement and administrative modernization; increases in costs and other liabilities associated with increased litigation, government investigations, audits or reviews; failure to manage successfully our strategic alliances or complete or receive anticipated benefits of acquisitions and other strategic transactions; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates on our reported shareholders’ equity and results of operations; downgrades in our credit ratings; the performance of our investment portfolio; impairment of the value of our goodwill and intangible assets if estimated future results do not adequately support goodwill and intangible assets recorded for our existing businesses or the businesses that we acquire; failure to maintain effective and efficient information systems or if our technology products do not operate as intended; and our ability to obtain sufficient funds from our regulated subsidiaries or the debt or capital markets to fund our obligations, to maintain our debt to total capital ratio at targeted levels, to maintain our quarterly dividend payment cycle or to continue repurchasing shares of our common stock.

This list of important factors is not intended to be exhaustive. We discuss certain of these matters more fully, as well as certain risk factors that may affect our business operations, financial condition and results of operations, in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our annual reports on Form 10-K, quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and current reports on Form 8-K. Any or all forward-looking statements we make may turn out to be wrong, and can be affected by inaccurate assumptions we might make or by known or unknown risks and uncertainties.

Actual future results may vary materially from expectations expressed or implied in this document or any of our prior communications.

Adjusted net earnings per share is a non-GAAP financial measure.
Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to, but
not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures prepared
in accordance with GAAP. Management believes that the use of
adjusted net earnings per share provides investors and management
useful information about the earnings impact of acquisition-related
intangible asset amortization.
