"And as we move forward, the savings generated will make McKesson a more streamlined and efficient operation, complementing our investments and improving operating profit growth for the organization."

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--McKesson Corporation (NYSE:MCK) today reported that revenues for the second quarter ended September 30, 2018, were $53.1 billion, up 2% compared to $52.1 billion a year ago, and also up 2% on a constant currency basis. On the basis of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”), second-quarter earnings per diluted share from continuing operations was $2.51, compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.01 a year ago. GAAP earnings per diluted share included a pre-tax benefit of $90 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, related to a reversal of a contractual liability associated with McKesson’s equity investment in Change Healthcare. Prior year GAAP earnings per diluted share included $2.60 per diluted share of non-cash goodwill and other long-lived asset impairment charges, and restructuring charges.

Second-quarter Adjusted Earnings per diluted share was $3.60, up 10% compared to $3.28 a year ago, primarily driven by a lower tax rate, including a discrete tax benefit of $42 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, and the aforementioned reversal of a contractual liability, partially offset by the previously announced customer losses in our U.S. Pharmaceutical business, incremental challenges in our businesses in the U.K. and France, and increased litigation expenses related to opioids.

“While our operational performance reflects anticipated challenges coming into the fiscal year, our second quarter results were primarily affected by the incremental headwinds we are facing in the U.K. and French markets, driving underperformance versus our expectations. We continue to have conversations with the U.K. government to discuss the patient-care services that pharmacies provide and how this low-cost setting of care is vital to the healthcare system, while also working to accelerate efficiency and growth opportunities across all of our businesses,” said John H. Hammergren, chairman and chief executive officer.

For the first half of the fiscal year, McKesson generated cash from operations of $318 million, and invested $248 million internally, resulting in free cash flow of $70 million, which was ahead of the company’s expectations. During the first half of the fiscal year, McKesson also paid $840 million for acquisitions, repurchased $877 million of its common stock, paid $139 million in dividends and the company ended the quarter with cash and cash equivalents of $2.1 billion.

“We are pleased with the contribution of our recent acquisitions, including MSD and RxCrossroads, which aligns with our stated multi-year strategic growth initiative. And we also continue to return capital to our shareholders through share repurchases and dividends,” concluded Hammergren.

Multi-Year Strategic Growth Initiative Update

As previously announced on April 25, 2018, McKesson launched a multi-year strategic growth initiative, inclusive of plans to optimize the company’s operating and cost structures. The company expects these cost actions will strengthen McKesson’s ability to focus resources, reduce complexity and improve efficiency and cost-competitiveness, enhancing and optimizing operations. McKesson expects these initiatives and actions will generate approximately $300 million to $400 million in annual pre-tax gross savings that will be substantially realized by the end of Fiscal 2021.

“We’ve prioritized growth opportunities, which include our manufacturer value proposition, services to support specialty pharmaceuticals and the future of retail pharmacy, all supported by data and analytics. Our cost reductions and operating model optimization will drive significant savings to support these priority growth areas,” said Brian S. Tyler, president and chief operating officer. “And as we move forward, the savings generated will make McKesson a more streamlined and efficient operation, complementing our investments and improving operating profit growth for the organization.”

Segment Results

U.S. Pharmaceutical and Specialty Solutions revenues were $41.6 billion for the quarter, up 2%, driven primarily by market growth and acquisitions, partially offset by previously announced customer losses and branded to generic conversions. Segment GAAP operating profit was $610 million and GAAP operating margin was 1.47%. Segment adjusted operating profit was $635 million and adjusted operating margin was 1.53%.

European Pharmaceutical Solutions revenues were $6.6 billion for the quarter, down 2% on a reported basis and down 1% on a constant currency basis, driven primarily by the previously disclosed reduction in owned retail pharmacies and a challenging operating environment in the U.K. and increased competition in France versus the prior year, partially offset by market growth in other countries. Segment GAAP operating profit was $10 million and GAAP operating margin was 0.15%. Segment adjusted operating profit was $53 million and adjusted operating margin was 0.80%. On a constant currency basis, adjusted operating profit was $54 million and adjusted operating margin was 0.81%.

Medical-Surgical Solutions revenues were $1.9 billion for the quarter, up 17%, driven primarily by an acquisition and market growth. Segment GAAP operating profit was $105 million and GAAP operating margin was 5.39%. Segment adjusted operating profit was $138 million and adjusted operating margin was 7.08%.

Revenues included in Other were $2.9 billion for the quarter, down 5% on a reported basis and down 1% on a constant currency basis, driven primarily by the prior year sale of the Enterprise Information Solutions business, partially offset by market growth and acquisitions. Other GAAP operating profit was $95 million and adjusted operating profit was $300 million. On a constant currency basis, adjusted operating profit was $310 million.

Fiscal Year 2019 Outlook

McKesson now expects Adjusted Earnings per diluted share of $13.20 to $13.80 for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019, from the previous range of $13.00 to $13.80 per diluted share.

McKesson does not provide forward-looking guidance on a GAAP basis as the company is unable to provide a quantitative reconciliation of this forward-looking non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measure without unreasonable effort, as items are inherently uncertain and depend on various factors, many of which are beyond the company’s control.

Dividend Declaration

The company’s Board of Directors yesterday declared a regular dividend of thirty-nine cents per share of common stock. The dividend will be payable on January 2, 2019, to stockholders of record on December 3, 2018.

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-related expenses and adjustments, LIFO inventory-related adjustments, gains from antitrust legal settlements, restructuring and asset impairment charges, and other adjustments. A reconciliation of McKesson’s GAAP financial results to Adjusted Earnings is provided in Schedules 2 and 3 of the financial statement tables included with this release.

The company does not provide forward-looking guidance on a GAAP basis prospectively as McKesson is unable to provide a quantitative reconciliation of this forward-looking non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable forward-looking GAAP measure, without unreasonable effort, because McKesson cannot reliably forecast LIFO inventory-related adjustments, gains from antitrust legal settlements, restructuring and asset impairment charges, and other adjustments, which are difficult to predict and estimate. These items are inherently uncertain and depend on various factors, many of which are beyond the company’s control, and as such, any associated estimate and its impact on GAAP performance could vary materially.

Constant Currency

McKesson also presents its financial results on a constant currency basis. The company conducts business worldwide in local currencies, including the 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 the company’s 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.

Free Cash Flow

McKesson also provides free cash flow, a non-GAAP measure. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities less property acquisitions and capitalized software expenditures, as outlined in the company’s condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.

Operating expenses for the first half of fiscal 2018 includes a pre-tax gain of $37 million ($22 million after-tax) related to the final net working capital settlement and other adjustments from the contribution of the majority of our technology business to form a joint venture, Change Healthcare in the fourth quarter of 2017. This credit is included under "Acquisition-Related Expenses and Adjustments" in the reconciliation of McKesson's GAAP financial results to Adjusted Earnings (Non-GAAP) provided in the Schedule 2 of the accompanying financial statement tables.

 
(3)

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 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 attributable to McKesson, excluding amortization of acquisition-related intangibles, acquisition and transaction related expenses and adjustments, Last-In-First-Out (“LIFO”) inventory-related adjustments, gains from antitrust legal settlements, restructuring and asset impairment charges, other adjustments as well as the related income tax effects for each of these items, as applicable. The Company evaluates its definition of Adjusted Earnings on a periodic basis and updates the definition from time to time. The evaluation considers both the quantitative and qualitative aspects 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 and 3 of the financial statement tables included with this release.

 

Amortization of acquisition-related intangibles - Amortization expenses of intangible assets directly related to business combinations and/or the formation of joint ventures and equity method investments.

 

Acquisition-related expenses and adjustments - Transaction, integration and other expenses that are directly related to business combinations, the formation of joint ventures, and other transaction-related costs including initial public offering costs. Examples include transaction closing costs, professional service fees, legal fees, restructuring or severance charges, retention payments and employee relocation expenses, facility or other exit-related expenses, certain fair value adjustments including deferred revenues, contingent consideration and inventory, recoveries of acquisition-related expenses or post-closing expenses, bridge loan fees, gains or losses related to foreign currency contracts entered into directly due to acquisitions, gains or losses on business combinations, and gain on the Healthcare Technology Net Asset Exchange.

 

LIFO inventory-related adjustments - LIFO inventory-related non-cash expense or credit adjustments.

 

Gains from antitrust legal settlements - Net cash proceeds representing the Company’s share of antitrust lawsuit settlements.

 

Restructuring and asset impairment charges - Non-acquisition related restructuring charges that are incurred for programs in which we change our operations, the scope of a business undertaken by our business units, or the manner in which that business is conducted as well as long-lived asset impairments. Such charges may include employee severance, retention bonuses, facility closure or consolidation costs, lease or contract termination costs, asset impairments, accelerated depreciation and amortization, and other related expenses. The restructuring programs may be implemented due to the sale or discontinuation of a product line, reorganization or management structure changes, headcount rationalization, realignment of operations or products, and/or Company-wide cost saving initiatives. The amount and/or frequency of these restructuring charges are not part of our underlying business, which includes normal levels of reinvestment in the business. Any credit adjustments due to subsequent changes in estimates are also excluded from the Adjusted Earnings.

 

Other adjustments - The Company evaluates the nature and significance of transactions qualitatively and quantitatively on an individual basis and may include them in the determination of our Adjusted Earnings from time to time. While not all-inclusive, other adjustments may include: gains or losses from divestitures of businesses that do not qualify as discontinued operations and from dispositions of assets; other asset impairments; adjustments to claim and litigation reserves for estimated probable losses and settlements; certain discrete benefits and subsequent true-up adjustments related to the December 2017 enactment of the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act during the one year measurement period; gains or losses from debt extinguishment; and other similar substantive and/or infrequent items as deemed appropriate.

 
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.
 
Additionally, our equity method investments' financial results are adjusted for the above noted items.
2 of 2
SUPPLEMENTAL NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION (continued)
 
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 noncontrolling 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 internationally in local currencies, including Euro, British pound sterling and Canadian dollars. 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.
