Owens & Minor Reports 1st Quarter 2015 Financial Results

RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Owens & Minor, Inc. (NYSE:OMI) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015, including the following items:

  • Consolidated quarterly revenue grew 6.0% to $2.39 billion
  • Adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.44 for the quarter
  • Operating cash flow for the quarter was $169 million
  • International segment reported positive adjusted operating earnings for the quarter

Consolidated net revenue increased 6.0% to $2.39 billion in the first quarter of 2015, as a result of strong growth in the Domestic segment. Excluding the impact of two acquisitions completed in the fourth quarter of 2014, consolidated quarterly revenues grew 4.0% when compared to the prior year. Quarterly net income was $18.9 million, or $0.30 per diluted share. Adjusted net income (non-GAAP), excluding after-tax charges of $8.6 million for acquisition-related and exit and realignment activities, was $27.5 million, or $0.44 per diluted share, unchanged when compared to last year's first quarter. (A table providing a reconciliation of reported results to adjusted (non-GAAP) measures is included below.)

"We are pleased with the solid results from the first quarter of this year," said James L. Bierman, president & chief executive officer of Owens & Minor. "The step-by-step investments that we have been making in our operations in the U.S. and Europe, along with the execution of our strategic initiatives, have enabled us to make significant progress toward our long-term goals. Our teammates, whether they are based in the U.S., Europe or Asia, are focused intently on achieving further gains as we work collectively to serve the needs of our healthcare industry customers."

Consolidated operating earnings for the first quarter of 2015 were $41.0 million, a decline of $5.3 million, when compared to the first quarter last year. Adjusted consolidated operating earnings (non-GAAP) for the first quarter of 2015 were $50.9 million, or 2.13% of revenues, representing a $1.3 million increase over the same period in the prior year. For comparison's sake, the company reported the recovery of $5.3 million from the settlement of a direct purchaser anti-trust class action lawsuit in the first quarter of 2014.

Asset Management

The balance of cash and cash equivalents was $159 million at March 31, 2015. For the first quarter of 2015, the company reported cash provided by operating activities of $169 million compared to $93 million for the same period last year, primarily due to changes in working capital. Asset management metrics for the quarter were strong with consolidated days sales outstanding (DSO) of 21.2 days as of March 31, 2015, improved by one day when compared to the prior year quarter. Consolidated inventory turns were 9.7 for the first quarter of 2015, compared to inventory turns of 10.1 for 2014.

Segment Results

Domestic segment revenues for the first quarter of 2015 were $2.29 billion, increased $137 million, when compared to the prior year's first quarter revenue. Excluding the impact of the domestic acquisition completed in the fourth quarter of 2014, Domestic revenues grew 4.7% in the first quarter. Domestic segment revenue growth resulted primarily from larger healthcare provider customer accounts and new business; these positive trends offset declines from smaller customer accounts.

For the first quarter of 2015, Domestic segment operating earnings were $50.5 million, or 2.21% of segment revenues, representing a decline of $2.2 million in operating earnings when compared to the first quarter of 2014. Last year's Domestic segment operating earnings included the previously discussed recovery of $5.3 million in other operating income. While Domestic segment operating earnings benefitted from revenue growth during the quarter, the gains were partially offset by additional expenses necessary to support increased sales activity.

For the International segment, revenues were $105.6 million for the first quarter of 2015, a decrease of nearly $2.0 million in comparison to the prior year's first quarter revenues, primarily due to the $17 million unfavorable impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. For the first quarter of 2015, the International segment had positive operating earnings of $0.4 million compared to a loss of $3.2 million in the prior year's first quarter.

2015 Outlook

The company's financial guidance for 2015 remains unchanged, consistent with the growth guidance originally provided at its December 2014 Investor Day.

For 2015, the company is targeting adjusted net income per diluted share of $1.90 to $1.95.

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 quarter ended 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 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.
