"We are updating our full-year outlook and now expect Adjusted Earnings per diluted share of $12.50 to $13.00 for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2016"

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--McKesson Corporation (NYSE:MCK) today reported that revenues for the second quarter ended September 30, 2015 were $48.8 billion, up 10% compared to $44.2 billion a year ago. On a constant currency basis, revenues increased 14% over the prior year. On the basis of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), second-quarter earnings per diluted share from continuing operations was $2.65 compared to $2.05 a year ago.

Second-quarter Adjusted Earnings per diluted share was $3.31, up 19% compared to $2.79 a year ago. On a constant currency basis, Adjusted Earnings per diluted share increased 20% over the prior year. Second-quarter results include a pre-tax gain of $51 million, or 14 cents per diluted share, related to the sale of the ZEE Medical business within the Distribution Solutions segment. Second-quarter results also reflect lower than expected tax expense driven by a discrete tax benefit of $25 million, or 11 cents per diluted share.

For the first half of the fiscal year, McKesson generated cash from operations of $1.3 billion, and ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $5.4 billion. During the first half of the fiscal year, McKesson repurchased nearly $500 million of its common stock, repaid $498 million in long-term debt, had internal capital spending of $274 million and paid $114 million in dividends.

At its recent meeting, McKesson’s Board of Directors authorized a new $2 billion share repurchase program.

“McKesson delivered solid results during the first six months of our fiscal year. In addition to the strong operating performance across our businesses in the second quarter, we repurchased approximately 2.5 million shares totaling nearly $500 million, announced the acquisition of the UK pharmacy operations of Sainsbury’s and the acquisition of the pharmaceutical distribution business of United Drug Group in Ireland. At its recent meeting, our Board of Directors also authorized a new $2 billion share repurchase program and we remain exceptionally well positioned to continue to execute our portfolio approach to capital deployment. We were also privileged to be selected by Albertsons as its pharmaceutical sourcing and distribution partner across all of its U.S. brands. I am confident in the strength and scale of our global value proposition for our customers and our manufacturing partners, and I am excited about the opportunities across our diversified portfolio of businesses,” said John H. Hammergren, chairman and chief executive officer.

“We are updating our full-year outlook and now expect Adjusted Earnings per diluted share of $12.50 to $13.00 for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2016,” concluded Hammergren.

Segment Results

Distribution Solutions revenues were $48 billion for the quarter, up 11% on a reported basis and up 14% on a constant currency basis.

North America pharmaceutical distribution and services revenues were $40.6 billion for the quarter, up 16% on a reported basis and 17% on a constant currency basis. North America revenue growth primarily reflects market growth and our mix of business.

International pharmaceutical distribution and services revenues were $5.9 billion for the quarter, down 13% on a reported basis and up 2% on a constant currency basis.

Medical-Surgical distribution and services second-quarter revenues were up 3% for the quarter, driven by market growth.

In the second quarter, Distribution Solutions GAAP operating profit was $926 million and GAAP operating margin was 1.93%. Second-quarter adjusted operating profit was $1.1 billion, up 8% on a reported basis and up 11% on a constant currency basis, primarily driven by growth in our North America pharmaceutical distribution and services revenues and a pre-tax gain of $51 million from the sale of the ZEE Medical business. Adjusted operating margin for the Distribution Solutions segment was 2.39%.

Technology Solutions second-quarter revenues were $721 million, down 6% compared to the prior year, primarily driven by the completed sale of our nurse triage business in our first quarter and by the anticipated year-over-year decline in our hospital software business, partially offset by growth in our other technology businesses.

Technology Solutions GAAP operating profit was $146 million for the second quarter and GAAP operating margin was 20.25%. Adjusted operating profit was $157 million for the second quarter and adjusted operating margin was 21.78%.

Fiscal Year 2016 Outlook

McKesson expects Adjusted Earnings per diluted share between $12.50 and $13.00 for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2016, based on an exchange rate of $1.10 per Euro. The updated full-year outlook reflects a number of items, including the sale of ZEE Medical in the second quarter, the impact of the recently completed $500 million share repurchase program, and a reduction in our full-year adjusted tax rate from 31.5% to 31%, primarily driven by a favorable discrete tax item recognized in the second quarter. The revised guidance range also reflects the expiration of the Optum contract at the start of the third quarter and an assumption that generic pharmaceutical pricing trends will remain weak in the second half of the fiscal year and similar to the level of the second quarter.

The updated outlook for Adjusted Earnings per diluted share between $12.50 and $13.00 excludes the following GAAP items:

  • Amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets of $1.25 per diluted share.
  • Acquisition expenses and related adjustments of 33 cents per diluted share.
  • LIFO inventory-related charges of 89 cents to 99 cents per diluted share.

The Fiscal 2016 guidance range does not include any potential claim or litigation reserve adjustments, or the impact of any potential new acquisitions and divestitures, and impairments or material restructurings.

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, certain claim and litigation reserve adjustments reflecting changes to the company’s reserves for controlled substance distribution claims and average wholesale price litigation matters, and Last-In-First-Out (“LIFO”) inventory-related adjustments. A reconciliation of McKesson’s GAAP financial results to Adjusted Earnings is provided in Schedules 2, 3 and 4 of the financial statement tables included with this release.

Constant Currency

McKesson also presents its financial results on a Constant Currency basis. The company conducts business worldwide in local currencies, including Euro, British pound and Canadian dollar. As a result, the comparability of the financial results reported in U.S. dollars can be affected by changes in foreign currency exchange rates. Constant Currency information is presented to provide a framework for assessing how its business performed excluding the effect of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. The supplemental Constant Currency information of the company’s GAAP financial results and Adjusted Earnings (Non-GAAP) is provided in Schedule 3 of the financial statement tables included with this release.

SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

In an effort to provide investors with additional information regarding the company's financial results as determined by generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), McKesson Corporation (the "Company" or "we") also presents the following non-GAAP measures in this press release. The Company believes the presentation of non-GAAP measures 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 non-GAAP measures assists investors’ ability to compare its financial results to those of other companies in the same industry. However, the Company's non-GAAP measures used in the press tables may be defined and calculated differently by other companies in the same industry.

  • Adjusted Earnings (Non-GAAP): We define Adjusted Earnings as GAAP income from continuing operations, excluding amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, acquisition expenses and related adjustments, certain claim and litigation reserve adjustments, and Last-In-First-Out (“LIFO”) inventory-related adjustments, as well as the related income tax effects. The Company evaluates its definition of Adjusted Earnings on a periodic basis and will update the definition from time to time. The evaluation considers both the quantitative and qualitative aspect of the Company’s presentation of Adjusted Earnings. A reconciliation of McKesson’s GAAP financial results to Adjusted Earnings (Non-GAAP) is provided in Schedules 2, 3 and 4 of the financial statement tables included with this release.

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

    Acquisition expenses and related adjustments - Transaction and integration expenses that are directly related to business 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, gains or losses related to foreign currency contracts, and gains or losses on business combinations.

    Claim and litigation reserve adjustments - Adjustments to the Company’s reserves, including accrued interest, for estimated probable losses for its Controlled Substance Distribution Claims and the Average Wholesale Price litigation matters, as such terms are defined in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015.

    LIFO-related adjustments - Last-In-First-Out ("LIFO") inventory-related adjustments.

    Income taxes on Adjusted Earnings are calculated in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 740, “Income Taxes,” which is the same accounting principle used by the Company when presenting its GAAP financial results.
  • Constant Currency (Non-GAAP): To present our financial results on a constant currency basis, we convert current year period results of our operations in foreign countries, which are recorded in local currencies, into U.S. dollars by applying the average foreign currency exchange rates of the comparable prior year period. To present Adjusted Earnings per diluted share on a constant currency basis, we estimate the impact of foreign currency rate fluctuations on the Company’s non-controlling interests and adjusted income tax expense, which may vary from quarter to quarter. The supplemental constant currency information of the Company’s GAAP financial results and Adjusted Earnings (Non-GAAP) is provided in Schedule 3 of the financial statement tables included with this release.

The Company internally uses non-GAAP financial measures 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. The Company conducts its business worldwide in local currencies, including Euro, British pound and Canadian dollar. As a result, the comparability of our results reported in U.S. dollars can be affected by changes in foreign currency exchange rates. We present constant currency information to provide a framework for assessing how our business performed excluding the estimated effect of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations. 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.
