Stocks in this article: MCK

McKesson Corporation (NYSE:MCK) today reported that revenues for the third quarter ended December 31, 2013 were $34.3 billion, up 10% compared to $31.1 billion a year ago. On the basis of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), third-quarter earnings per diluted share from continuing operations was $0.67 compared to $1.27 a year ago. Third-quarter GAAP earnings per diluted share from continuing operations includes charges of $142 million, or 37 cents per share, related to LIFO adjustments, $122 million, or 52 cents per share, related to an ongoing dispute with the Canada Revenue Agency and $42 million, or 18 cents per share, in the Technology Solutions segment from restructuring actions in the Horizon Clinicals software platform. Third-quarter GAAP earnings per diluted share was $0.28 which includes a 39 cent loss from discontinued operations.

Third-quarter Adjusted Earnings per diluted share from continuing operations was $1.45 compared to $1.44 a year ago. Third-quarter Adjusted Earnings per share includes charges of $122 million, or 52 cents per share, related to the Canadian dispute and $42 million, or 18 cents per share, in the Technology Solutions segment.

“We are extremely pleased by the third-quarter performance of our Distribution Solutions segment where adjusted operating profit grew by 37% and our full-year view of the performance in Distribution Solutions is better than our previous expectations,” said John H. Hammergren, chairman and chief executive officer. “This operating strength is offset by an increase in our tax reserves due to a dispute with the Canadian tax authorities and a charge in our Technology Solutions segment as we continue to align our Horizon Clinicals software platform development efforts and size the organization appropriately given regulatory delays. As a result, we are updating our previous outlook and now expect Adjusted Earnings per diluted share of $8.05 to $8.20 for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014.”
