Owens & Minor Releases 2nd Quarter 2012 Financial Results; Company Plans To Acquire European Healthcare 3PL Business

Owens & Minor, Inc., (NYSE-OMI) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012, including quarterly revenue of $2.19 billion, improved 2.5% from revenue of $2.13 billion for the second quarter of last year. For the second quarter of 2012, net income was $30.1 million, or $0.48 per diluted share, compared to $29.2 million, or $0.46 per diluted share, for the same period of 2011. Owens & Minor also announced that it has agreed to acquire the Movianto Group (“Movianto”), the healthcare third-party logistics (3PL) business of Celesio AG, effectively launching Owens & Minor into the European healthcare market.

“This quarter’s results highlight many of our traditional areas of strength, such as strong expense and asset management,” said Craig R. Smith, president & chief executive officer of Owens & Minor. “As a team, we continue to work on improving our profitability and advancing our strategic initiatives. We are excited about the Movianto transaction, which will bring together two companies with very similar cultures. We look forward to welcoming the Movianto team to the Owens & Minor family.”

For the second quarter of 2012, operating earnings were $53.2 million, or 2.43% of revenues, improved when compared to operating earnings of $51.0 million, or 2.39% of revenues, for the same period last year. The improvement was driven primarily by lower expenses.

Year-to-Date Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, revenue was $4.40 billion, improved $148 million, or 3.5%, when compared to revenue of $4.26 billion for the first six months of 2011. Net income for the first half of 2012 was $59.5 million, or $0.94 per diluted share, improved $1.6 million when compared to net income of $57.9 million, or $0.91 per diluted share in the same period last year. Operating earnings for the year-to-date period were $105.0 million, or 2.39% of revenues, compared to operating earnings of $102.0 million, or 2.40% of revenues, for the same period of 2011.

Asset Management

The balance of cash and cash equivalents was $225 million at June 30, 2012, increased by $89 million from December 31, 2011. For the first half of 2012, the company reported cash provided by operating activities of approximately $143 million compared to $40 million for the same period last year. Asset management metrics were positive with record low days sales outstanding (DSO) of 19.5 as of June 30, 2012, improved when compared to 20.6 days as of June 30, 2011. Inventory turns of 10.8 for the second quarter of 2012 were near all-time highs and were improved from inventory turns of 10.4 for the same period last year.

Owens & Minor Plans to Acquire the Movianto Group

Owens & Minor announced that it plans to enter the European healthcare market with a binding offer to purchase the majority of the Movianto Group, the healthcare third-party logistics (3PL) business of Celesio AG, for approximately €130 million ($158 million). The acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including satisfaction of certain local legal provisions. Movianto, a leading 3PL provider in Europe, currently serves customers globally from 23 logistics centers located in 11 European countries with approximately 1,800 teammates. As a logistics provider to pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, Movianto provides outsourcing services such as warehousing, transportation, and cold chain logistics, as well as value-added services such as order-to-cash, repackaging and relabeling of products. Movianto’s operational capabilities and services are highly complementary to OM HealthCare Logistics, Owens & Minor’s domestic healthcare 3PL service offering, enabling the combined entity to provide healthcare manufacturers in the U.S. and Europe with expanded global reach through a common logistics platform.

The acquisition is expected to close in the third quarter of 2012. While the acquisition will be dilutive to Owens & Minor’s earnings per share in 2012, partially as a result of expenses associated with the transaction, the company believes that it will be neutral to 2013 earnings per share and accretive thereafter.

“The intended acquisition of Movianto provides Owens & Minor not only with a premier European healthcare logistics franchise, but gives us a global platform to serve our customers. Movianto will enable us to significantly expand our existing third-party logistics presence and scale,” said Smith. “Our manufacturer partners have increasingly expressed interest in working with Owens & Minor on a global basis, and Movianto provides us an exceptional platform from which to serve them. Owens & Minor looks forward to working with the Movianto team to serve customers and create long-term value.”

2012 Outlook

The company will provide an update of its 2012 outlook during the management conference call scheduled for Tuesday, July 24, 2012, at 8:30 a.m. EDT. The 2012 outlook is based on certain assumptions that are subject to the risk factors discussed in the company’s filings with the Securities & Exchange Commission.

Highlights
  • Owens & Minor has signed agreements, effective July 20, 2012, to consolidate its delivery fleet with a single vendor, Penske Truck Leasing and Penske Logistics.
