Owens & Minor Releases 2nd Quarter 2014 Financial Results

RICHMOND, Va.--()--Owens & Minor, Inc. (NYSE:OMI) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014, including the following items:

  • Consolidated quarterly revenue was $2.31 billion, an increase of 3.1%
  • Adjusted net income per diluted share was $0.40 for the quarter
  • Owens & Minor announced plans to acquire Medical Action Industries Inc. during 2Q 2014

For the quarter ended June 30, 2014, the company reported consolidated quarterly revenues of $2.31 billion, an increase of 3.1% over the second quarter of 2013. Quarterly net income was $19.9 million, or $0.32 per diluted share. Adjusted net income (non-GAAP), excluding after-tax charges of $2.5 million for acquisition-related and $2.6 million for exit and realignment activities, was $25.0 million, or $0.40 per diluted share.

Consolidated operating earnings for the second quarter of 2014 were $37.1 million, a decline of $12.9 million, when compared to the second quarter last year. Adjusted consolidated operating earnings (non-GAAP) for the second quarter of 2014 were $44.7 million, or 1.94% of revenues, a decline of $6.0 million when compared to the year before.

“While second quarter results were impacted by many of the same trends that we saw earlier in the year, we are confident that the deliberate actions we are taking to on-board new customers and realign our platforms and teams in the U.S. and Europe will drive performance in the second half of 2014,” said Craig R. Smith, chairman & chief executive officer of Owens & Minor. “In the U.S., we continued to see growth among our larger healthcare provider customer accounts. In Europe, we continue to work on optimizing the network and improving operations, especially in the U.K. On the Domestic side, we are looking forward to completing the Medical Action Industries acquisition, which will enable us to expand service offerings to our healthcare provider and manufacturer customers. We believe Owens & Minor remains well positioned to create sustainable value for our shareholders.”

Acquisition Update

During the second quarter, Owens & Minor announced plans to acquire Medical Action Industries Inc. (Medical Action) (Nasdaq:MDCI), a leading producer of surgical kits and procedure trays. The acquisition will enable an expansion of Owens & Minor’s capabilities in the global sourcing and production of kits, packs and trays for the healthcare market. Under terms of the definitive agreement, Owens & Minor will acquire all outstanding shares of Medical Action Industries Inc. for $13.80 per share in cash, representing a total transaction value of approximately $208 million, including assumed debt, net of cash. Medical Action reported $288 million in net sales from continuing operations for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014, of which approximately 45% represented sales to Owens & Minor. The transaction, which is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2014, is subject to customary closing conditions, including Medical Action shareholder approval. Owens & Minor has been notified that the Federal Trade Commission has granted early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976 (HSR) in connection with the proposed acquisition. Owens & Minor intends to finance the transaction with existing cash and available borrowings under its revolving credit facility.

The acquisition of Medical Action is expected to be accretive to Owens & Minor’s adjusted net income (non-GAAP) in 2015, including anticipated partial synergies in the first full year of ownership. Owens & Minor estimates annual pre-tax cost synergies of $10 to $12 million by the end of calendar year 2016, excluding potential revenue synergies. Aside from transaction-related costs, which will be reported as acquisition-related and exit and realignment charges, the impact to Owens & Minor ’s 2014 adjusted net income per diluted share will be limited primarily to the fourth quarter of 2014, and is not expected to be significant.

“This strategic acquisition, a highly complementary business, opens up a new growth area for our company by allowing us to produce custom procedure trays and minor procedure kits for our provider and manufacturer customers,” said James L. Bierman, president & chief operating officer of Owens & Minor. “It is a natural expansion of our strategy to provide customers more complete and cost-effective solutions globally. Combined with the steps we are taking to reduce costs and increase efficiencies, the continued focus on core capabilities with customer-driven solutions that will allow us to remain at the forefront of connecting the world of medical products to the point-of-care.”

2014 Year-to-Date Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, consolidated revenues were $4.56 billion, increased approximately $79.8 million, or 1.8%, when compared to the first six months of 2013. Net income for the first half of 2014 was $45.4 million, or $0.72 per diluted share. For the year-to-date period, adjusted net income (non-GAAP), which excludes after-tax charges of $3.0 million for acquisition-related and $4.3 million for exit and realignment activities, was $52.7 million, or $0.84 per diluted share. Year-to-date results include the first-quarter recovery of $5.3 million, resulting from the settlement of a direct purchaser anti-trust class action lawsuit, which was included in other operating income.

Consolidated operating earnings for the year-to-date period of 2014 were $83.4 million, or 1.83% of revenues, compared to operating earnings of $97.9 million for the same period of 2013. Adjusted consolidated operating earnings for the year-to-date period were $94.2 million, or 2.07% of revenues, a decline of 17 basis points versus the first six months of 2013.

Asset Management

The balance of cash and cash equivalents was $92 million at June 30, 2014. For the year-to-date period of 2014, the company reported cash provided by operating activities of approximately $73 million. Asset management metrics for the quarter were strong with consolidated days sales outstanding (DSO) of 20.6 days as of June 30, 2014, compared to DSO of 20.8 days as of June 30, 2013. Consolidated inventory turns were 10.2 for the second quarter of 2014, comparable to inventory turns for the same period last year.

Segment Results

Domestic segment revenues for the second quarter of 2014 were $2.19 billion, an increase of 2% when compared to the prior year’s second quarter revenue of $2.14 billion. The increase in second quarter Domestic segment revenues resulted primarily from growth among larger healthcare provider customer accounts, partially offset by declines in revenue from smaller provider customers. For the year-to-date period, Domestic segment revenues were $4.34 billion, an increase of approximately 1% when compared to the same period last year.

For the second quarter of 2014, Domestic segment operating earnings were $48.3 million, or 2.21% of segment revenues, a decline of approximately $2.9 million, when compared to the same period of 2013. For the year-to-date period, Domestic segment operating earnings were $101.1 million, or 2.33% of segment revenues, a decline of $3.1 million, when compared to operating earnings for the same period in the prior year. For both the quarter and the year-to-date periods, the decline in Domestic segment operating earnings reflected lower benefits from supplier price changes, as well as lower margin on new and renewed customer contracts. Offsetting these negative factors were cost benefits realized from ongoing strategic initiatives designed to improve productivity and efficiency.

The International segment contributed revenue of $118 million for the second quarter of 2014 and had an operating loss of $3.6 million. For the year-to-date period, the International segment reported $226 million in revenues, and an operating loss of $6.8 million. For both the quarter and the year-to-date periods, the company attributed the International segment operating losses to operations in the United Kingdom, including increased costs associated with integrating a significant new customer and reduced customer activity.

2014 Outlook

Based on operating and financial results for the first half of 2014 and expectations for the remainder of the year, the company revised its financial guidance for the year as follows:

For 2014, the company now expects revenue growth to exceed 2% and adjusted net income per diluted share to be within a range of $1.80 to $1.90 for the year, excluding acquisition-related and exit and realignment activities.

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.
