Omnicare Reports Third-Quarter 2012 Financial Results; Company Raises Full-Year 2012 Guidance

CINCINNATI, October 31, 2012 - Omnicare, Inc. (NYSE:OCR) reported today financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Third-Quarter Highlights:

  • Gross profit increase of 7.3% to $371 million; 232 basis-point expansion in gross margin rate
  • Adjusted cash earnings per diluted share from continuing operations 16.2% higher to $0.86; GAAP earnings per diluted share of $0.55
  • Cash flows from continuing operations of $196 million

"We are pleased with our progress during the third quarter," said John L. Workman, Omnicare's Chief Executive Officer.  "We experienced a continuation of many of the same elements that drove our performance in the first half of 2012.  Our cost structure continued to benefit from increased generic drug penetration, allowing us to more than offset a lower level of prescription volumes within our Long-Term Care Group.  We also continued the momentum within our Specialty Care Group, with each of our specialty platforms generating solid year-over-year growth."

Third-Quarter Results

Financial results from continuing operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, as compared with the same prior-year period, were as follows:

  • Net sales was $1,501 million versus $1,544 million
  • Gross profit was $371 million as compared with $346 million
  • GAAP income from continuing operations per diluted share was $0.55 versus $0.33
  • Adjusted cash earnings per diluted share from continuing operations (see "per share" discussion below and attached supplemental information) was $0.86 versus $0.74
  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $172 million versus $157 million

Cash flows from continuing operations for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 were $196 million versus $167 million in the comparable prior-year quarter. 

"During the quarter, we began making changes to our Long-Term Care operating structure that we believe will accelerate our progress toward operational excellence," said Nitin Sahney, Omnicare's President and Chief Operating Officer.  "We also continued to benefit from the operational improvements we have made across our Specialty Care Group.  With both businesses now under the leadership of one team, we believe we are in a better position to standardize our approach and better leverage the company's assets."

Financial Position

Omnicare concluded the third quarter of 2012 with no borrowings outstanding on its revolving credit facility and $648 million in cash on its balance sheet.  

During the third quarter, Omnicare amended and extended its existing credit facility, which is now comprised of a $300 million senior unsecured revolving credit facility and a $425 million senior unsecured term loan due September 28, 2017, resulting in a 50 basis-point reduction in interest rates.  The Company incurred $8 million in debt redemption costs as part of the transaction.

With respect to its share repurchase program, Omnicare repurchased approximately 900 thousand shares of common stock during the quarter for an aggregate amount of $31 million.  As of September 30, 2012, the Company had approximately $498 million of availability under its current share repurchase authorization.

"This quarter Omnicare generated $196 million of operating cash flows and enabled us to make further improvements to our financial position," said Rocky Kraft, Omnicare's Chief Financial Officer.  "Our cash flows enabled us to return additional capital to shareholders by continuing opportunistic share repurchases and a doubling of our quarterly cash dividend.  With a total share repurchase authorization of $498 million, we believe we are well positioned to continue this key component of our capital allocation strategy."

Nine-Month Results

Financial results from continuing operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, as compared with the same prior-year period, were as follows:

  • Net sales were $4,630 million as compared with $4,626 million
  • Gross profit was $1,107 million as compared with $1,017 million
  • GAAP income from continuing operations per share was $1.19 as compared with $1.07
  • Adjusted cash earnings per diluted share from continuing operations was $2.50 as compared with $2.12
  • Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations was $512 million versus $450 million

Operating cash flow from continuing operations for the first nine months of 2012 totaled $417 million versus $448 million in the comparable prior-year period. 

To facilitate comparisons and to enhance the understanding of core operating performance, discussions in this news release include financial measures that are adjusted from the comparable amounts under GAAP to exclude the impact of the special items discussed elsewhere herein, and to present results on a continuing operations basis.  For a detailed presentation of reconciling items and related definitions and components, please refer to the attached schedules or to reconciliation schedules posted at the Investor Relations section of Omnicare's website at http://ir.omnicare.com.  Additionally, the Company will make supplemental slides available in the same section on its website today that will include the number of scripts dispensed, beds served, and other information relevant to Omnicare's operations.

Non-GAAP Information:
Omnicare, Inc. ("Omnicare" or the "Company") management believes that presenting certain non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude items not considered part of the core operating results of the Company and certain non-cash charges and also includes certain tax deduction amounts ("Special Items"), enhances investors' understanding of how Omnicare management assesses the performance of the Company's business.  Omnicare management uses non-GAAP measures for budgeting purposes, measuring actual results, allocating resources and in determining employee incentive compensation.  Omnicare's method of calculating non-GAAP financial results may differ from those used by other companies and, therefore, comparability may be limited.

Discontinued Operations:
In 2009, the Company commenced activities to divest certain home healthcare and related ancillary businesses ("the Disposal Group") that are non-strategic in nature.  Also, in connection with the reallocation of resources started in the second half of 2010 and the previously disclosed unfavorable market conditions experienced by its Contract Research Services organization ("CRO Services") business, the Company committed to a plan to divest of its CRO Services business in the first quarter of 2011 and completed the divestiture in April 2011.  Also, in the second quarter of 2011, the Company divested its Tidewater Group Purchasing Organization ("Tidewater").  The Company determined that the CRO Services and Tidewater businesses were no longer good strategic fits within the Company's portfolio of assets.  In the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company divested the remaining durable medical equipment ("DME") portion of the Disposal Group.  In connection with these activities, Omnicare recorded an impairment loss in discontinued operations in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2011 to reduce the carrying value of the CRO Services and Non-Core disposal group operations to fair value based on the final terms of the divestiture.
