Henry Schein To Open NASDAQ Stock Market To Celebrate Rebranding Of U.S. Animal Health Business

MELVILLE, N.Y., July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC), the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, medical and animal health practitioners, will open the NASDAQ Stock Market in Times Square today in celebration of the rebranding of its market-leading U.S. animal health business.

Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein, will be joined for the NASDAQ open by animal health professionals and other leaders in the animal health industry to celebrate the rebranding of Butler Schein Animal Health as Henry Schein Animal Health.   The name change recognizes the Company's leadership in the animal health market and a deep commitment to its customers and supplier partners.      

Butler Schein Animal Health was created in 2010 through the merger of Butler Animal Health Supply (which included The Butler Company and Burns Veterinary Supply) and Henry Schein's existing animal health business (which included NLS Animal Health) to immediately become the leading U.S. companion animal health distributor. Since then, Butler Schein has represented the largest component of Henry Schein's global animal health business. 

"We have achieved much since we established the new leader in the U.S. animal health market three years ago – Butler Schein Animal Health," said Mr. Bergman. "We are now the world's leading animal health distributor, serving 68,000 customers across 14 countries.  Our rebranding to Henry Schein Animal Health is an exciting step in the evolution of our Company as we continue to grow our animal health business globally and provide even better service and solutions for our valued customers. This rebranding preserves the rich heritage of Butler Schein and links our United States operations more closely with our market-leading animal health businesses throughout Europe and Australasia."

Henry Schein is the leading animal health provider in Australia, New Zealand, The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Ireland and the Czech Republic, with animal health operations in Spain, Portugal, the U.K., France and Austria, as well.  In addition, Henry Schein is a leading global provider of animal health practice management software solutions.
