Owens & Minor Reports 1st Quarter Financial Results

Owens & Minor confirms earnings guidance for the year

RICHMOND, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 6, 2020-- Owens & Minor, Inc. (NYSE: OMI) today reported financial results for the first quarter of 2020, as summarized in the table below.

“I am pleased with the way that our teams performed in a very challenging environment in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. I have seen our values play out in real life as our teams worked with customers, suppliers, and various agencies of state and federal governments to provide creative solutions to these challenges. We recognize our responsibilities and required leadership in supporting the Nation’s response to protect those on the front line. Our distribution, products, and services teams have rallied around our mission to Empower Our Customers to Advance Healthcare,” said Edward A. Pesicka, President & Chief Executive Officer of Owens & Minor.

“The decisive actions we took this quarter enabled us to quickly pivot and leverage the strength of our Americas based PPE manufacturing footprint. While we expect the second quarter to be very challenging due to the significant reduction in elective procedures, we are well positioned to partially offset this impact due to the increased demand for our PPE products.” In addition, Pesicka added, “During the second quarter, we will continue to invest in a disciplined manner to meet the needs of our customers as their demand for our services and products grows throughout the third and fourth quarter as elective procedures ramp back up. While 2020 is expected to continue to be very fluid, with downs and ups, our demonstrated ability to quickly pivot and leverage our strengths to best serve our customers provides us with the confidence to re-confirm our full year adjusted EPS guidance of $0.50 to $0.60.”

1. Adjusted net income and Adjusted net income per share relate to continuing operations.

2. Reconciliations of the differences between the non-GAAP financial measures presented in this release and their most

directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the tables below.

3. Adjusted net income per share, non-GAAP at foreign currency exchange rates as of December 31, 2019.

1st Quarter 2020 Highlights

  • On a constant currency basis, adjusted net income per share increased by $0.02 to $0.08 compared to the prior year quarter, a 33% increase.
  • Operating results reflect favorable revenue mix combined with continued operating efficiencies resulting in gross margin expansion of 88 basis points compared to in the first quarter of 2019.
  • The Company generated $93 million of operating cash flow in the first quarter, primarily from working capital improvements.
  • Total debt was reduced by $24 million in the first quarter, bringing the total for the last four quarters to $195 million.
  • The change in revenue compared to prior year was driven by lower sales as a result of customer non-renewals that occurred in early 2019 and reduced surgical procedures as a result of COVID-19 in our Medical Distribution business. These changes were partially offset by increased sales of personal protective equipment (PPE) and revenue growth in the Home Healthcare business.
  • On April 6, 2020, the Company announced that it had entered into a purchase agreement for the pending sale of its European logistics business, Movianto, to EHDH Holding Group, a privately held French company. The Company continues to believe that the transaction, which is subject to certain customary approvals and conditions to close, will close in the first half of 2020.

COVID-19 Update

  • The significant reduction in elective surgical procedures, which began mid-March, is expected to continue through the end of the 2nd quarter of 2020. This reduction in surgical procedures will negatively impact our revenue and profit for the second quarter. However, elective procedures are assumed to recover at an accelerated rate during the 3rd and 4th quarter of 2020, partially offsetting the 2nd quarter impact.
  • Owens & Minor expects to continue the production of our Americas based PPE at or near full capacity through the end of 2020 due to:
    • Continued demand related to COVID-19
    • Rebuilding of safety stock by our customers and government agencies in the event COVID-19 demand slows
    • The need for PPE products as elective procedures ramp up
    • Owens & Minor being named by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as one of five manufacturers to collectively provide approximately 600 million N95 respirator masks over the next 18 months.
    • New operating protocols requiring PPE in non-healthcare related industries
  • Owens & Minor participated in Operation Local Production in which teammates in our Lexington, NC facility manufactured nearly 1 million cubic yards of fabric for delivery to New York City garment workers to make medical gowns for NYC hospitals.
  • Owens & Minor worked closely with FEMA’s Supply Chain Task Force on Project Air Bridge to accelerate the distribution of critical PPE to areas of greatest need and reduce the transit time of these supplies.
  • Owens & Minor reaches a milestone in the COVID-19 fight with nearly two billion units of PPE shipped during February and March 2020.

Financial Outlook

Key assumptions supporting guidance:

  • Elective procedures will not return to normal levels until Q3, negatively impacting revenues in our Global Solutions segment during Q2.
  • Hospitals will increase surgical capacity in Q3 and Q4 to partially recover from elective procedures that were postponed during Q2, driving incremental demand in both our Global Solutions and Global Products segments in the second half of the year.
  • Global Products production of PPE will continue to run at or near full capacity for the balance of the year to meet market demand and to satisfy federal government stockpiling commitments.
  • Additional favorability in commodity pricing for the remainder of the year.
  • Continued foreign exchange headwinds assumed for the balance of the year.

Based on the above assumptions, the Company continues to expect adjusted net income for 2020 to be in a range of $0.50 to $0.601 per share, on a constant currency basis, despite being challenged in the 2nd quarter to achieve breakeven. The Company believes that it remains positioned to deliver sustained double-digit earnings growth beyond 2020.

  1. On a continuing operations basis; based on foreign currency rates in effect December 31, 2019.

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”).

Dividend Information

The Board of Directors approved a second quarter 2020 dividend payment of $0.0025 per share, payable on June 30, 2020, to shareholders of record as of June 15, 2020.

Owens & Minor, Inc.
GAAP/Non-GAAP Reconciliations (unaudited), continued

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 $4.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, and consisted primarily of transition costs for the Halyard acquisition. Exit and realignment charges were $1.8 million and $0.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively. Exit and realignment charges in the first quarter of 2020 were associated with severance from reduction in force and other costs related to the reorganization of the U.S. commercial, operations and executive teams. Exit and realignment charges in the first quarter of 2019 were associated with severance from reduction in force and other employee costs associated with the establishment of our client engagement center and other IT restructuring charges.

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

(4) Other includes interest costs and net actuarial losses related to the U.S. Retirement Plan.

(5) (Gain) loss on extinguishment and modification of debt in 2020 includes the write-off of deferred financing costs associated with the paydown of our Term A loans of $2.1 million and third party fees expensed as a result of the Fifth Amendment to the Credit Agreement in February 2020 of $2.2 million, which was offset by a gain on extinguishment of debt related to the partial repurchase of our 2021 Notes in March 2020 of $0.2 million. (Gain) loss on extinguishment and modification of debt in 2019 includes the write-off of deferred financing costs associated with the revolving credit facility as a result of the Fourth Amendment to the Credit Agreement in February 2019 of $2.0 million.

(6) Includes a tax adjustment associated with the estimated benefits under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

(7) 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.

(8) Excludes the impact of translational currency, which assumes 2020 results at 2019 rates.

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.
