1Q 2019 Results

  • Investments made in the company’s operations have resulted in significant improvement in service levels compared to 2018. The company is now consistently meeting service level targets and is beginning to drive improved productivity in operations.
  • Compared to the prior year’s first quarter, consolidated quarterly revenues grew 3.7%, primarily resulting from Halyard sales of $189 million for the quarter (net of $52 million of intercompany sales) and strong sales growth with Byram Healthcare. These gains were partially offset by lower distribution revenues, as a result of customer non-renewals during 2018 and early 2019, primarily resulting from service issues.
  • Quarterly results reflected revenue changes, continued pressure on distribution gross margins, higher supply chain costs, and increased expenses incurred for the development of new solutions. In addition, interest expense of $29.1 million for the quarter increased $18.8 million when compared to the prior year as a result of the company’s new debt structure.

Financial Guidance and Outlook
For 2019, the company maintained its previously issued guidance of adjusted net income per share to be in a range of $0.60 to $0.75 per share.

Although the company does provide guidance for adjusted net income per share (which is a non-GAAP financial measure), it is not able to forecast the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP without unreasonable effort. Certain elements of the composition of the GAAP amount are not predictable, making it impracticable for the company to forecast. Such elements include, but are not limited to restructuring and acquisition charges. As a result, no GAAP guidance or reconciliation of the company’s adjusted net income per share guidance is provided. For the same reasons, the company is unable to assess the probable significance of the unavailable information, which could have a potentially significant impact on its future GAAP financial results. The outlook is based on certain assumptions that are subject to the risk factors discussed in the company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

Upcoming Investor Events
Owens & Minor plans to participate in the following investor conferences in the second quarter of 2019, and the company will post webcasts of formal presentations on its corporate website.

  • Bank of America Merrill Lynch Healthcare Conference, Las Vegas, May 14
  • Goldman Sachs Global Healthcare Conference, Rancho Palos Verdes, June 11 - 13

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

(1) Intangible amortization includes amortization of intangible assets established during purchase accounting for business combinations. These amounts are highly dependent on the size and frequency of acquisitions and are being excluded to allow for a more consistent comparison with forecasted, current and historical results and the results of our peers.

(2)Acquisition-related charges were $4.2 million and $12.1 million in the first quarter of 2019 and 2018, respectively. Acquisition related expenses in 2019 and 2018 consist primarily of transition and transaction costs for the Halyard transaction.

Exit and realignment charges were $0.8 million in the first quarter of 2019 and $2.7 million in the first quarter of 2018. Amounts in 2019 were associated with the establishment of our client engagement centers and IT restructuring charges. Amounts in 2018 were associated with the establishment of our client engagement centers.

(3) Other consists of Software as a Service (SaaS) implementation costs associated with significant global IT platforms in connection with the redesign of our global information system strategy.

(4) Write-off of deferred financing costs associated with the revolving credit facility as a result of the Fourth Amendment to the Credit Agreement.

(5) 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 substitutes 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.
