See Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements Owens & Minor, Inc. and Subsidiaries Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements 1. Accounting Policies In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments (which are comprised only of normal recurring accruals and the use of estimates) necessary to present fairly the consolidated financial position of Owens & Minor, Inc. and subsidiaries as of June 30, 1994 and the results of operations for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 1994 and 1993 and cash flows for the six month periods ended June 30, 1994 and 1993. 2. Interim Results of Operations The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. 3. Interim Gross Margin Reporting In general, the Company uses estimated gross profit rates to determine the cost of sales during interim periods. To improve the accuracy of its estimated gross margins for interim reporting purposes, the Company takes physical inventories at selected distribution centers and reported results of operations for the quarter reflect the results of such inventories, if materially different. Management will continue a program of interim physical inventories at selected distribution centers to the extent it deems appropriate to ensure the accuracy of interim reporting to minimize year-end adjustments. 4. Business Combination On May 10, 1994, the Company exchanged $40.2 million in cash and 1.15 million shares of 4.5%, $100 par value, Series B Cumulative Preferred Stock for all the capital stock of Stuart Medical, Inc. (Stuart), a distributor of medical/surgical supplies. The Series B Cumulative Preferred Stock is convertible into approximately 7.0 million shares of common stock. The transaction was accounted for as a purchase and, accordingly, the operating results of Stuart have been included in the Company's consolidated operating results since May 1, 1994. The purchase price exceeded the net assets acquired by approximately $156 million which is being amortized on a straight-line basis over 40 years. The following summary, prepared on a pro forma basis, combines the consolidated results of operations as if Stuart had been combined as of the beginning of each of the periods presented, after including the impact of certain adjustments, such as increased interest expense on acquisition debt, amortization of the excess of purchase price over net assets acquired, reversal of non-recurring restructuring expenses ($18.6 million pre-tax) and related income tax effects. (In thousands, except per share data) Six Months Ended June 30, 1994 Six Months Ended June 30, 1993 Net sales $ 1,295,000 $ 1,100,000 Net income $ 13,000 $ 10,800 Net income per common share $ 0.34 $ 0.27
The pro forma results are not necessarily indicative of what actually would have occurred if the combination had been in effect for the entire period presented. In addition, they are not intended to be a projection of future results. 5. Long-Term Debt Simultaneous with the Stuart combination, the Company entered into a $350 million Senior Credit Agreement with interest based on, at the Company's discretion, the London Interbank Borrowing Offering Rate (LIBOR) or the Prime Rate. The Credit Agreement expires in April 1999. The proceeds were used to fund the $40.2 million exchanged in the combination, repay certain of the long- term debt of Stuart and the Company and fund the working capital requirements associated with the accounts receivable of Stuart. Stuart sold its accounts receivable at a discount to a related funding company, thus no receivables were acquired by the Company in the combination. 6. Non-recurring Restructuring Expenses During the second quarter of 1994 non-recurring restructuring expenses were incurred under a formal restructuring plan adopted in connection with the Company's combination with Stuart and its related decision to contract out the management and operation of its mainframe computer system. The $18.6 million (pre-tax) of non-recurring expenses are comprised primarily of severance costs associated with termination of employees (approximately $5.2 million), costs of consolidating distribution facilities and offices (approximately $4.0 million) and costs of terminating leases associated with the contracting out of the Company's mainframe computer operations (approximately $6.4 million). The restructuring expenses also include approximately $3.0 million of non-cash asset write-downs. The Company anticipates incurring additional restructuring expenses associated with this plan over the remainder of 1994, with total restructuring expenses estimated to be $35 million. 7. Stock Split All share and per share information includes the effect of the 3 for 2 stock split distributed June 8, 1994 to shareholders of record on May 24, 1994. Item 2. Owens & Minor, Inc. and Subsidiaries Management's Discussion and Analysis of Results of Operations and Financial Condition Net Sales During the second quarter net sales increased 70.5% (20% same store) to $581.8 million in 1994 from $341.2 million in 1993. For the year sales increased 47.6% (20% same store) compared to the first six months of 1993. The sales increase is due primarily to the combination with Stuart Medical, Inc. (Stuart), the Company's continued market share improvement from previously announced new supply agreements with Voluntary Hospitals of America, Inc. (VHA) and Columbia/HCA Healthcare Corporation (Columbia/HCA), account penetration and product line expansion. Gross Margin Gross margin as a percentage of net sales declined during the second quarter to 9.8% in 1994 from 10.4% in 1993. Gross margin is also down for the first six months from 10.5% in 1993 to 9.9% in 1994. This anticipated decline is due primarily to the above mentioned new national supply contracts. Although the gross margin of these contracts reduces the Company's overall gross margin as a percentage of net sales, the reduction is being offset by the increased sales, producing an increase in gross margin dollars for the first six months of 1994 of approximately 38.5%. Selling, General and Administrative Expenses In conjunction with the realization of synergies from the Stuart combination and the benefits realized from the Company's emphasis on training and technology development, the Company has been able to absorb the increased sales volume without corresponding increases in administrative expenses. These synergies and benefits have decreased selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales from 7.6% for the second quarter of 1993 and 7.7% for the first six months of 1993 to 7.0% for the second quarter of 1994 and 7.1% for the first six months of 1994, respectively. Depreciation and Amortization Depreciation and amortization increased approximately $1.5 million during the second quarter of 1994 as compared to the second quarter of 1993 and $2.1 million for the first six months in 1994 compared to the same period in 1993. The increase is due primarily to the additional assets acquired in the combination with Stuart, the approximately $156 million excess of purchase price over net assets acquired resulting from the combination and the Company's continued investment in new and improved technology. Interest Expense, Net Interest expense, net of interest income, increased from $.7 million during the second quarter of 1993 to $2.2 million during the same period in 1994. For the first six months of 1994 interest expense, net of interest income, increased $1.7 million compared to the same period in 1993. The increase is due to increased borrowings (approximately $197) to finance the combination with Stuart and the unfavorable trend in interest rates during the first half of 1994. Income Tax Expense (Benefit) The effective tax rate varied during the second quarter as a percentage of income before income taxes from 40.0% tax expense in 1993 to tax benefit of 36.5% in 1994. The rate has also varied similarly year to date. The rate variance is due to the amortization of the excess of purchase price over net assets acquired in the Stuart combination, which is not tax deductible. Non-recurring Restructuring Expenses During the second quarter of 1994 the Company incurred approximately $19 million of non-recurring restructuring expenses. These non- recurring restructuring expenses as discussed in the Company's 1994 proxy statement relate to its combination with Stuart. The anticipated amounts discussed in the proxy statement have increased due to the Company's recent decision to contract out the operation of its mainframe computer system due to the combination. As discussed in note 5 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements, the expenses relate to severance costs associated with the termination of employees, consolidation of distribution facilities and offices, termination of leases related to the Company's current mainframe computer system and write-down of assets. Restructuring expenses of approximately $16 million will be recorded as incurred throughout the remainder of the year. Net Income (Loss) During the second quarter and the first six months of 1994, the Company incurred a net loss due to the anticipated restructuring expenses previously mentioned. Without these non-recurring expenses and the related tax benefit the Company earned approximately $6.0 million or $.17 per common share for the quarter ended June 30, 1994 and $10.8 million or $.32 per common share for the six months ended June 30, 1994, increases of 41.7% and 33.5%, respectively, over the same periods in 1993. The increase in net income prior to restructuring expenses is due primarily to the increased sales and the reduction in operating expenses as a percent of net sales. Financial Condition The Company uses several measurements for internal purposes of managing assets, liquidity and capital resources. Due to the Stuart combination the majority of measurements have changed due to different customer bases and different management objectives. In the transition process the Company will continue its emphasis on management of assets, liquidity and capital resources as a key ingredient to making the combination successful. The following is a summary of a few of the measurements the Company uses. June 30, 1994 December 31, 1993 June 30, 1993 Return on Common Equity* 15.6% 14.6% 14.3% Current Ratio 1.95 1.97 1.97 Inventory Turnover 8.5 11.5 10.3 Accounts Receivable Days Sales 35.3 34.2 34.2 Capitalization Ratio 49.6% 27.1% 30.3%
