Henry Schein Reports Record First Quarter Results

Adjusted EPS up 8.2% to $1.06

Company affirms 2013 financial guidance

07 May, 2013, 07:00 ET from Henry Schein, Inc.

MELVILLE, N.Y., May 7, 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, today reported record financial results for the quarter ended March 30, 2013.

Net sales for the first quarter of 2013 were $2.3 billion, an increase of 9.3% compared with the first quarter of 2012.  This consisted of 9.2% growth in local currencies and a 0.1% gain related to foreign currency exchange.  In local currencies, internally generated sales increased 3.3% and acquisition growth was 5.9% (see Exhibit A for details of sales growth).

Net income attributable to Henry Schein, Inc. for the first quarter of 2013 was $91.5 million or $1.03 per diluted share.  Excluding non-cash, one-time expenses related to refinancing the Butler Schein Animal Health debt of $6.2 million pre-tax or $0.03 per diluted share, net income attributable to Henry Schein, Inc. was $94.2 million or $1.06 per diluted share, an increase of 5.7% and 8.2%, respectively, compared with the first quarter of 2012 excluding restructuring costs.

"We are pleased to announce another record first-quarter performance, which puts us on the path to achieving our full-year earnings goal," said Stanley M. Bergman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Henry Schein. "While the quarter's results reflect certain macroeconomic challenges in Europe, as well as some one-time technical factors, our bottom-line performance was in line with our expectations, reinforcing our confidence in the long-term outlook for the Company."

Global Dental sales of $1.2 billion increased 3.0%, consisting of 2.9% growth in local currencies and a 0.1% gain related to foreign currency exchange.  In local currencies, internally generated sales declined 0.3% and acquisition growth was 3.2%.  The 0.3% decline in internal growth in local currencies included 1.1% growth in North America and a 2.4% decline in International.

"North America Dental results were affected by strong fourth quarter 2012 equipment sales as we believe practitioners accelerated purchases to take advantage of certain U.S. tax opportunities.  International merchandise and equipment declines reflected a cautious spending environment in much of Europe and Australasia, and a more significant impact from the holiday timing, which resulted in one less selling day in certain European markets.  International equipment sales also were impacted by the biennial IDS trade show which occurred in late Q1 2013," commented Mr. Bergman.

Global Animal Health sales of $639.1 million increased 21.6%, including 21.7% growth in local currencies and a 0.1% decline related to foreign currency exchange.  In local currencies, internally generated sales increased 6.8% and acquisition growth was 14.9%.  The 6.8% internal growth in local currencies included 14.9% growth in North America and a 1.5% decline in International.

"We continued to gain market share in our Global Animal Health business during the quarter, with results in North America marking our fifth consecutive quarter of double-digit growth," commented Mr. Bergman.  "International growth in local currencies of nearly 29% was driven by acquisitions, while internal growth declined slightly primarily due to macroeconomic factors and one less selling day in certain European countries."

Global Medical sales of $388.9 million increased 9.6%, including 9.5% growth in local currencies and a 0.1% gain from foreign currency exchange.  In local currencies, internally generated sales increased 8.3% and acquisition growth was 1.2%.  The 8.3% internal growth in local currencies included 9.0% growth in North America and a 3.3% decline in International.

"Internal growth in North America Medical represented the highest growth rate in nearly two years as we made further gains in domestic market share.  We experienced particularly strong sales growth in integrated delivery networks, urgent care settings and ambulatory surgery centers," remarked Mr. Bergman.

Global Technology and Value-Added Services sales of $74.7 million increased 18.7%, including 18.9% growth in local currencies and a 0.2% decline related to foreign currency exchange.  In local currencies, internally generated sales increased 11.7% and acquisition growth was 7.2%.  The 11.7% internal growth in local currencies included 11.4% growth in North America and 14.3% International growth.

"Technology and Value-Added Services sales growth was strong both in North America and internationally with particular strength in recurring revenue streams for technology and financial services, as well as strong software sales," commented Mr. Bergman.

Stock Repurchase Plan

The Company announced that it repurchased approximately 840,000 shares of its common stock during the first quarter at an average price of $87.50 per share, or approximately $73.5 million.  The impact of the repurchase of shares on first quarter diluted EPS was immaterial.  At the close of the first quarter, Henry Schein had approximately $227 million authorized for future repurchases of its common stock.

2013 EPS Guidance

Henry Schein today affirmed 2013 financial guidance, as follows:

  • For 2013 the Company expects diluted EPS attributable to Henry Schein, Inc. to be $4.81 to $4.91, which represents growth of 8% to 11% compared with 2012 results excluding restructuring costs.
