  • Revenues of $30.6 billion for the fourth quarter and $122.5 billion for the full year.
  • Fourth-quarter GAAP earnings per diluted share of $1.10 and full-year GAAP earnings per diluted share of $5.59.
  • Fourth-quarter Adjusted Earnings per diluted share of $1.45 and full-year Adjusted Earnings per diluted share of $6.33.
  • Fourth-quarter GAAP and Adjusted Earnings per diluted share includes $0.76 in impairment charges and $0.11 in severance and facility exit costs.
  • Fiscal 2013 cash flow from operations of $2.5 billion.
  • Fiscal 2014 Outlook: Adjusted Earnings per diluted share from continuing operations of $7.90 to $8.20.

McKesson Corporation (NYSE: MCK) today reported that revenues for the fourth quarter ended March 31, 2013 were $30.6 billion, down 3% compared to $31.7 billion a year ago. On the basis of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), fourth-quarter earnings per diluted share was $1.10 compared to $2.09 a year ago.

For the fiscal year, McKesson had revenues of $122.5 billion compared to $122.7 billion a year ago. Full-year GAAP earnings per diluted share was unchanged at $5.59 compared to the prior year.

Fourth-quarter Adjusted Earnings per diluted share was $1.45, down 31% compared to $2.09 a year ago. During the quarter, McKesson undertook a number of strategic and operational actions to position the Company going forward. As a result, fourth-quarter GAAP and Adjusted Earnings per diluted share included $0.76 of non-cash impairment charges and $0.11 of severance and facility exit charges. Full-year Adjusted Earnings per diluted share was $6.33, compared to $6.38 in the prior year.

In connection with these actions, the Company committed to a plan to sell its 49 percent equity investment in Nadro S.A. de C.V., a privately-held pharmaceutical distributor in Mexico, which resulted in a fourth-quarter non-cash, pre-tax impairment charge of $191 million.

The Company’s actions also include a realignment of the Technology Solutions segment. As part of this realignment, the Company intends to exit its International Technology and Hospital Automation businesses. Results for these two businesses will be reported in discontinued operations beginning in the first fiscal quarter of 2014.

“We took important strategic and operational actions during the quarter and while these actions impacted our fourth quarter financial results, I believe they leave the Company well positioned for continued success going forward,” said John H. Hammergren, chairman and chief executive officer. “Turning to our operating results, I am pleased with the strong performance of our Distribution Solutions segment in the fourth quarter, which capped off another outstanding year in the segment. In addition to the strong operating performance in our Distribution Solutions segment, we had another great year of cash flow performance and deployed a record level of capital for acquisitions and share repurchases, creating further value for our shareholders.”

During the fourth quarter, McKesson completed the acquisition of PSS World Medical, Inc. Also during the fourth quarter, McKesson repurchased $800 million of its common stock.

For the year, McKesson generated cash from operations of $2.5 billion, and ended the year with cash and cash equivalents of $2.5 billion and a gross debt-to-capital ratio of 40.8%. During the year, McKesson spent $1.9 billion on acquisitions, repurchased $1.2 billion of its common stock, paid $194 million in dividends, and had internal capital spending of $406 million.

“The strength of our balance sheet and cash flow performance continue to provide opportunities to create value for our shareholders through our portfolio approach to capital deployment,” Hammergren commented. “In the fourth quarter we completed the acquisition of PSS and have begun the process of bringing together the best of our combined businesses to help our customers improve efficiency and deliver better care to their patients. In addition, our strong cash flow allowed us to repurchase shares of common stock valued at more than $1.2 billion in Fiscal 2013. We plan to continue our portfolio approach to capital deployment with a mix of acquisitions, share repurchases, dividends and internal investments.”

Segment Results

Distribution Solutions revenues were down 4% for the fourth quarter and were flat for the full year compared to the prior year. U.S. pharmaceutical distribution direct revenues were up 1% for the fourth quarter and warehouse sales were down 26%. For the full year, U.S. pharmaceutical distribution direct revenues were up 2% compared to the prior year, primarily reflecting market growth offset by the impact of brand-to-generic conversions. For the full year, warehouse sales were down 9%, primarily reflecting brand-to-generic conversions.

Canadian revenues, on a constant currency basis, decreased 5% for the fourth quarter primarily due to a customer transition and one less sales day. Including an unfavorable currency impact of 1%, Canadian revenues decreased 6% for the fourth quarter. For the full year, Canadian revenues decreased 2% on a constant currency basis. Including an unfavorable currency impact of 1%, Canadian revenues decreased 3% for the full year.

Medical-Surgical distribution and services revenues were up 37% for the fourth quarter driven primarily by the acquisition of PSS. For the full year, Medical-Surgical revenues were up 15% driven by market growth, new customers and the acquisition of PSS.

In the fourth quarter, Distribution Solutions GAAP operating profit was $551 million and GAAP operating margin was 1.85%. Fourth-quarter adjusted operating profit was $643 million and the adjusted operating margin was 2.16%. Distribution Solutions fourth-quarter results include a $191 million non-cash, pre-tax charge related to the impairment of our investment in Nadro and a $16 million pre-tax charge for severance and facility exit costs related to the actions taken to position this segment for future growth. For the full year, GAAP operating profit was $2.2 billion and GAAP operating margin was 1.85%. For the full year, adjusted operating profit was $2.5 billion and the adjusted operating margin was 2.07%.

“Our businesses in Distribution Solutions had another great year with strong operating performance across the segment. The tremendous efficiency of our pharmaceutical distribution business and the comprehensive value we provide allow us to establish and maintain our longstanding customer relationships. I am also particularly pleased with the performance of our Medical-Surgical distribution business in Fiscal 2013. With the acquisition of PSS now complete, our combined products, services, technology and people provide a great platform to continue this momentum and enhance the value we bring to our customers,” said Hammergren.

In Technology Solutions, revenues were up 6% for the fourth quarter and up 3% for the full year. GAAP operating profit was $28 million for the fourth quarter and GAAP operating margin was 3.07%. Adjusted operating profit was $50 million for the fourth quarter and adjusted operating margin was 5.48%. Technology Solutions fourth-quarter results include a $46 million non-cash, pre-tax impairment charge primarily for goodwill, and a $16 million pre-tax severance and facility exit charge related to the realignment of the businesses in this segment. For the full year, GAAP operating profit was $297 million and GAAP operating margin was 8.73%. For the full year, adjusted operating profit was $371 million and the adjusted operating margin was 10.91%.

“In our Technology Solutions segment we are taking a number of steps to focus in the areas where we have a leading position and invest in the opportunities where we can provide innovative solutions to our customers. These steps will enhance the strength of our solutions, and help our customers deliver better business results and provide better care to their patients in an increasingly connected healthcare environment,” Hammergren said.

Fiscal Year 2013 Reconciliation of GAAP Results to Adjusted Earnings

Adjusted Earnings per diluted share of $6.33 for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2013 excludes the following GAAP items:

  • Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets of 57 cents per diluted share.
  • Acquisition expenses and related adjustments add two cents per diluted share, including the impact of the $81 million pre-tax gain on business combination related to the acquisition of the remaining 50% ownership interest in McKesson’s corporate headquarters building completed during the first quarter.
  • Litigation reserve adjustments of 19 cents per diluted share.

Fiscal Year 2014 Outlook

“Our Fiscal 2014 guidance reflects solid growth across our broad portfolio of businesses, aided by the continued strength of our balance sheet. McKesson expects Adjusted Earnings per diluted share from continuing operations between $7.90 and $8.20 for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014,” Hammergren concluded.

Key Assumptions for Fiscal Year 2014 Outlook

The Fiscal 2014 outlook is based on the following key assumptions and is also subject to the Risk Factors outlined below.

  • Distribution Solutions revenue growth will rebound significantly as brand-to-generic conversions slow, aided by expected growth from our existing customers and the acquisition of PSS World Medical.
  • Branded and generic drug price trends in Fiscal 2014 are expected to be similar to those we experienced in Fiscal 2013.
  • We expect the contribution to profit from the launch of new oral generic pharmaceuticals will decline significantly year-over-year.
  • Technology Solutions revenue growth will accelerate from the level of growth in Fiscal 2013 driven primarily by acquisitions completed in that fiscal year.
  • The guidance range assumes a full-year adjusted tax rate of approximately 31%, which may vary from quarter to quarter.
  • Property acquisitions and capitalized software expenditures should be between $400 million and $450 million.
  • Cash flow from operations is expected to be approximately $2 billion.
  • Weighted average diluted shares used in the calculation of earnings are expected to be approximately 231 million for the year.
  • Based on acquisitions closed as of March 31, 2013:
    • We expect amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets of approximately 78 cents per diluted share.
    • We expect acquisition expenses and related adjustments of 22 cents per diluted share.
  • The Fiscal 2014 guidance range does not include any potential litigation reserve adjustments, or the impact of any potential new acquisitions, divestitures, impairments, material restructurings or charges for LIFO inventory accounting adjustments.

Adjusted Earnings

McKesson separately reports financial results on the basis of Adjusted Earnings. Adjusted Earnings is a non-GAAP financial measure defined as GAAP income from continuing operations, excluding amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, acquisition expenses and related adjustments, and certain litigation reserve adjustments. A reconciliation of McKesson’s financial results determined in accordance with GAAP to Adjusted Earnings is provided in Schedules 2, 3 and 4 of the financial statement tables included with this release.

Adjusted Earnings (Non-GAAP) Financial Information

 
Adjusted Earnings represents income from continuing operations, excluding the effects of the following items from the Company’s GAAP financial results, including the related income tax effects:
 

Amortization of acquisition-related intangibles - Amortization expense of acquired intangible assets purchased in connection with acquisitions by the Company.

 

Acquisition expenses and related adjustments - Transaction and integration expenses that are directly related to acquisitions by the Company. Examples include transaction closing costs, professional service fees, restructuring or severance charges, retention payments, employee relocation expenses, facility or other exit-related expenses, recoveries of acquisition-related expenses or post-closing expenses, bridge loan fees, and gains or losses on business combinations.

 

Litigation reserve adjustments - Adjustments to the Company’s reserves, including accrued interest, for estimated probable losses for its Average Wholesale Price and Securities Litigation matters, as such terms were defined in the Company’s Annual Reports on Form 10-K for the fiscal years ended March 31, 2012 and 2009.

 
Income taxes on Adjusted Earnings are calculated in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification 740, “Income Taxes,” which is the same accounting principles used by the Company when presenting its GAAP financial results.
 
The Company believes the presentation of non-GAAP measures such as Adjusted Earnings provides useful supplemental information to investors with regard to its core operating performance, as well as assists with the comparison of its past financial performance to the Company’s future financial results. Moreover, the Company believes that the presentation of Adjusted Earnings assists investors’ ability to compare its financial results to those of other companies in the same industry. However, the Company's Adjusted Earnings measure may be defined and calculated differently by other companies in the same industry.
 
The Company internally uses non-GAAP financial measures such as Adjusted Earnings in connection with its own financial planning and reporting processes. Specifically, Adjusted Earnings serves as one of the measures management utilizes when allocating resources, deploying capital and assessing business performance and employee incentive compensation. Nonetheless, non-GAAP financial results and related measures disclosed by the Company should not be considered a substitute for, nor superior to, financial results and measures as determined or calculated in accordance with GAAP.
