Carillon Eagle Small Cap Growth Fund made the following comment about Evolent Health, Inc. (NYSE:EVH) in its Q4 2022 investor letter:
"Evolent Health, Inc. (NYSE:EVH) provides a platform of technology-enabled administrative and clinical management services to provider networks and managed care organizations to help them manage the care of patients under value-based care (VBC) arrangements. Unfortunately in the quarter, the company missed revenue estimates due to a retroactive adjustment resulting from the way that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services calculates savings for companies participating in gainsharing pilot programs with them. While this was disappointing, later in the quarter the company announced an accretive acquisition of a specialty benefit management organization that focuses on managing costs and quality in radiology, musculoskeletal medicine, physical medicine, and genetics. The announcement of this acquisition was favorably received by investors, and when combined with recent impressive new client additions, sets the company up for what should be a strong 2023."
