Owens & Minor Reports 1st Quarter 2014 Financial Results

RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Owens & Minor, Inc. (NYSE:OMI) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014, including the following items:

  • Consolidated quarterly revenue was $2.26 billion
  • Adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.44 for the quarter
  • Operating cash flow for the quarter was $93.2 million
  • Asset management metrics were strong for the quarter, continuing a long-standing trend

For the quarter ended March 31, 2014, the company reported consolidated revenues of $2.26 billion, a slight increase, when compared to the first quarter of 2013. Quarterly net income was $25.5 million, or $0.41 per diluted share. Adjusted net income (non-GAAP), excluding after-tax charges of $2.22 million for acquisition-related and exit and realignment activities, was $27.7 million, or $0.44 per diluted share. Current quarter results included the recovery of $5.3 million, resulting from the settlement of a direct purchaser anti-trust class action lawsuit. This was included in other operating income.

Consolidated operating earnings for the first quarter of 2014 were $46.3 million, a decline of $1.6 million, when compared to the first quarter last year. Adjusted consolidated operating earnings (non-GAAP) for the first quarter of 2014 were $49.5 million, or 2.20% of revenues, a slight decrease when compared to the year before. Quarterly operating earnings benefitted from the $5.3 million recovery described above.

"Our strategic focus remains squarely on developing opportunities for the future and investing in our business to ensure that we capture promising opportunities for growth," said Craig R. Smith, chairman and chief executive officer of Owens & Minor. "As we expand our business into new areas and new markets, we would expect to experience variances in customer activity and associated expenses from time to time. We continue to believe we are taking the right steps for the near term and the long term to implement our strategic vision to become the leading logistics provider in healthcare."

Asset Management

The balance of cash and cash equivalents was $182 million at March 31, 2014. For the first quarter of 2014, the company reported cash provided by operating activities of approximately $93 million compared to $155 million for the same period last year, primarily due to changes in working capital at the end of the quarter. Asset management metrics for the quarter were strong with consolidated days sales outstanding (DSO) of 20.5 days as of March 31, 2014, compared to DSO of 21.7 days as of March 31, 2013. Consolidated inventory turns were 10.4 for the first quarter of 2014, compared to inventory turns of 10.6 for the same period last year.

Segment Results

Domestic segment revenues for the first quarter of 2014 were $2.15 billion, essentially unchanged, when compared to the prior year's first quarter revenue. First quarter Domestic segment revenues reflected a continuing trend with growth among larger healthcare provider customer accounts, offset by declines in revenue from smaller healthcare provider customers.

For the first quarter of 2014, Domestic segment operating earnings were $52.7 million, or 2.45% of segment revenues, consistent with operating earnings in the same period of 2013. Domestic segment operating earnings included the previously discussed recovery of $5.3 million in other operating income. Quarterly Domestic segment performance was affected by lower benefits derived from supplier price changes when compared to the first quarter of 2013, as well as lower margin on new and renewed customer contracts. These factors were partially offset by cost benefits realized from ongoing strategic initiatives and improvement in workers' compensation claims experience.

For the International segment, revenues were $107.5 million for the first quarter of 2014, an increase of nearly $16 million in comparison to the prior year's first quarter revenues, primarily due to increased fee-for-service business. For the first quarter of 2014, the International segment had an operating loss of $3.2 million, resulting primarily from operations in the United Kingdom, which experienced a reduced level of activity with certain existing customers, as well as higher than anticipated expenses related to on-boarding a significant new customer.

"During the first quarter, we initiated the next step of our longer term international strategy and assigned an experienced Owens & Minor management team to provide operations expertise and identify future expansion and growth opportunities in the European healthcare market," said Smith. "By putting this structure in place, it will enable us to move more quickly to optimize our existing platform, with particular attention to our U.K. division, and will enhance our ability to evaluate and integrate other opportunities."

2014 Outlook

The company reiterated the following financial guidance for 2014, which was originally issued at its December 2013 Investor Day:

For 2014, the company is targeting revenue growth of up to 2% and adjusted net income per diluted share of $1.95 to $2.05 for the year, which excludes exit and realignment and acquisition-related costs.

The 2014 outlook is based on certain assumptions that are subject to the risk factors discussed in the company's filings with the Securities & Exchange Commission.

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.
