  • Adjusted net income per diluted share improved 15% to $0.46 for the quarter
  • Year-to-date operating cash flow was $247 million
  • International segment reported positive operating earnings for the third consecutive quarter

RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Owens & Minor, Inc. (NYSE:OMI) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2015, including consolidated net revenues of $2.42 billion, which improved 5.0% when compared to the prior year period. The quarterly revenue growth was driven primarily by strength in the Domestic segment. Excluding the impact of the two fourth-quarter 2014 acquisitions, quarterly consolidated revenues increased 2.9% compared to the same period last year. Quarterly net income was $24.2 million, or $0.39 per diluted share. Adjusted net income (non-GAAP), excluding after-tax charges of $1.3 million for acquisition-related and $3.5 million for exit and realignment activities, was $29.1 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, an improvement of 15% compared to last year's second quarter. (A table providing reconciliation of reported results to adjusted (non-GAAP) measures is included below.)

Consolidated operating earnings for the second quarter of 2015 were $47.9 million, increased by $10.8 million, when compared to the second quarter last year. Adjusted consolidated operating earnings (non-GAAP) for the second quarter of 2015 were $53.6 million, or 2.21% of revenues, improved by $8.9 million when compared to the prior year period.

"We are pleased with our performance year-to-date, which gives us solid results to build upon for the rest of the year," said P. Cody Phipps, president & chief executive officer of Owens & Minor, who joined the company on July 1, 2015. "After coming onboard in July, I began a period of intense immersion in Owens & Minor's operations, strategy and culture, learning as much as I can about the company. I am very excited about the opportunity to work together with the leadership team as we further enhance our strategy for long-term success and profitable growth."

2015 Year-to-Date Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, consolidated revenues were $4.81 billion, an increase of $251 million, or 5.5%, when compared to the first six months of 2014. Excluding the impact of the acquisitions, consolidated revenues increased 3.4% for the year-to-date period. Net income for the first half of 2015 was $43.2 million, or $0.69 per diluted share. For the year-to-date period, adjusted net income (non-GAAP), which excludes after-tax charges of $3.6 million for acquisition-related and $9.9 million for exit and realignment activities, was $56.6 million, or $0.90 per diluted share. When comparing year-to-date results to the same period last year, 2014 results included the first-quarter recovery of $5.3 million, resulting from the settlement of a direct purchaser anti-trust class action lawsuit, which was included in other operating income.

Consolidated operating earnings for the year-to-date period of 2015 improved $5.4 million to $88.8 million, when compared to the same period of 2014. On an adjusted basis, consolidated operating earnings for the year-to-date period were $104.5 million, or 2.17% of revenues, an improvement of $10.2 million versus the first six months of 2014.

Asset Management

The balance of cash and cash equivalents was $201 million at June 30, 2015. For the year-to-date period of 2015, the company reported cash provided by operating activities of approximately $247 million compared to $73.5 million for the same period last year, primarily due to timing of payments to vendors and improvements in net working capital. Asset management metrics for the quarter were solid with consolidated days sales outstanding (DSO) of 20.4 days as of June 30, 2015, compared to DSO of 20.6 days as of June 30, 2014. Consolidated inventory turns were 9.6 compared to 10.1 for 2014.

Segment Results

Domestic segment revenues for the second quarter of 2015 were $2.32 billion, an increase of 5.9% when compared to the prior year. Excluding the impact of the domestic acquisition, Domestic segment revenues grew 4.2% in the second quarter. Domestic segment revenue growth resulted primarily from growth among larger healthcare provider customer accounts and new business, which offset declines from smaller customers. For the year-to-date period of 2015, Domestic segment revenues improved 6.2% to $4.60 billion, or 4.5% excluding the impact of the 2014 acquisition.

For the second quarter of 2015, Domestic segment operating earnings improved $4.1 million to $52.4 million, or 2.26% of segment revenues. For the year-to-date period, Domestic segment operating earnings were $102.9 million, or 2.24% of segment revenues, a $1.8 million improvement, when compared to the prior year period. Year-to-date results for 2014 included the previously discussed benefit from the settlement of a direct purchaser anti-trust class action lawsuit. For both the quarter and the year-to-date periods, the Domestic segment operating earnings reflected the benefits of strong revenue growth and supplier price changes.

The International segment contributed revenues of $105 million for the second quarter of 2015 and $210 million in revenues for the year-to-date period, representing declines of $13.8 million and $15.7 million respectively. The declines were driven by the unfavorable foreign currency translation of $15.7 million and $30.5 million for the quarter and year-to-date periods. Excluding the impact of foreign exchange, the 2014 acquisition, and the late 2014 transition of a customer from a buy-sell to a fee-for-service arrangement, International segment revenues were essentially flat for the quarter and the year-to-date periods.

The International segment reported operating earnings of $1.2 million for the second quarter of 2015 and $1.6 million for the year-to-date period. In both periods, the operating earnings results represent a significant positive swing of $4.8 million for the quarter and $8.4 million for the year-to-date period, when compared to the same periods in the prior year.

"Our teams in Europe are to be commended for achieving steady progress toward our goals and a third consecutive quarter of profitability," said Richard A. Meier, executive vice president & chief financial officer of Owens & Minor. "Operational improvements and efficiency gains across the platform contributed to success in the first half of the year."

2015 Outlook

The company is expanding the range of its targeted adjusted net income per diluted share for the year to $1.85 to $1.95 (from the previous $1.90 to $1.95) to incorporate the impact of foreign currency and an estimated $0.05 impact from the recruitment and transition of the company's new chief executive officer.

The 2015 outlook is based on certain assumptions that are subject to the risk factors discussed in the company's filings with the Securities & Exchange Commission.

Financial Statistics and GAAP/Non-GAAP Reconciliations (unaudited)

The following items in the current quarter have been excluded in our non-GAAP financial measures:

(1) Acquisition-related charges in the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and March 31, 2015 consist primarily of costs to continue the integration of Medical Action and ArcRoyal which were acquired in the fourth quarter of 2014 including certain severance and contractual payments to former management and costs to transition information technology and other administrative functions. Charges incurred in 2014 related primarily to costs to perform due diligence and analysis related to the Medical Action and Arc Royal acquisitions, costs to complete the transactions, and costs to begin the integration of the acquired operations (including certain severance and contractual payments to former management) as well as certain costs in Movianto to resolve issues and claims with the former owner.

(2) Exit and realignment charges in 2015 and 2014 were associated with optimizing our operations and include the consolidation of distribution and logistics centers and closure of offsite warehouses in the United States and Europe, as well as other costs associated with our strategic organizational realignment which include certain professional fees and costs to streamline administrative functions and processes in Europe.

(3) The fourth quarter of 2014 included a gain of $6.7 million (pretax) recorded in other operating income, net from a fair value adjustment to contingent consideration related to the Movianto acquisition purchase price, offset by the incremental charge to cost of goods sold of $3.0 million (pretax) from purchase accounting impacts related to the sale of acquired inventory that was written up to fair value in connection with the 2014 acquisitions.

(4) The fourth quarter of 2014 included a loss in other operating income, net related to an accrual for the settlement amount of a contract claim in the United Kingdom for $3.9 million (pretax).

(5) In 2014, we repaid our 2016 Notes and recorded a net loss on the early retirement of $14.9 million (pretax), which included the redemption premium offset by the recognition of a gain on previously settled interest rate swaps.

These charges have been tax effected in the preceding table by determining the income tax rate depending on the amount of charges incurred in different tax jurisdictions and the deductibility of those charges for income tax purposes.

Use of Non-GAAP Measures

This earnings release contains financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). In general, the measures exclude items and charges that (i) management does not believe reflect Owens & Minor, Inc.'s (the "Company") core business and relate more to strategic, multi-year corporate activities; or (ii) relate to activities or actions that may have occurred over multiple or in prior periods without predictable trends. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures internally to evaluate the Company's performance, evaluate the balance sheet, engage in financial and operational planning and determine incentive compensation.

Management provides these non-GAAP financial measures to investors as supplemental metrics to assist readers in assessing the effects of items and events on its financial and operating results and in comparing the Company's performance to that of its competitors. However, the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

The non-GAAP financial measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and the financial results calculated in accordance with GAAP and reconciliations to those financial statements set forth above should be carefully evaluated.
