Patterson Companies Reports Fiscal 2015 Third Quarter Operating Results

-- Sales totaled $1.1 billion, with earnings per diluted share of $0.55

-- Nine-month sales up 8.9 percent to $3.2 billion; year-to-date EPS per
diluted share increases to $1.59 from $1.42 a year ago

-- Dental consumables sales rise 4.0 percent and veterinary sales increase
3.5 percent on a constant currency basis

-- Company reaffirms earnings guidance range of $2.20 to $2.30 per diluted
share for fiscal 2015
ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--February 19, 2015--

Patterson Companies, Inc. (Nasdaq:PDCO) today reported that consolidated sales totaled $1.1 billion (see attached Sales Summary for further details) in its fiscal third quarter ended January 24, 2015, essentially flat with the same period last year. Net income totaled $54.7 million, or $.55 per diluted share, compared to $57.9 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, in the prior year (excluding costs related to the Medical unit restructuring). Net income and EPS in the prior-year period benefited from an adjustment to non-cash, stock based compensation of $8 million, or $0.05 per diluted share.

"We continued to execute against our strategic plan in the fiscal third quarter, are on track to meet our financial objectives and are confident in the strength of our business," said Scott Anderson, chairman and chief executive officer. "During the quarter, we witnessed several positive trends including the sales of dental consumables which provided another quarter of sequential growth. Our investments in our people, new talent and go-to-market strategies are positioning us well to capitalize on long-term opportunities."

Patterson Dental

Sales for Patterson Dental, the company's largest business that accounts for approximately 58 percent of total sales, decreased to $620.8 million, down 2.6 percent on a constant currency basis from the year-earlier period. Also on a constant currency basis, sales by category versus the prior-year quarter were as follows:
-- Consumable dental supplies increased 4.0 percent;

-- Dental equipment and software declined 13.2 percent. We believe this
reflected the industry-wide impact of a late reinstatement of tax
incentives for U.S. customers; and

-- Other services and products, consisting primarily of technical service,
parts and labor, software support services and artificial teeth, improved
6.5 percent.

Commented Anderson, "Again this quarter, we saw solid growth in consumables, which we believe indicates continued increased office visits and overall demand for dental services. In equipment, our combination of strong core and technology offerings, industry leading service and support, and the trend toward digitization of the dental office will continue to make this market a strong one for us, and we believe in our ability to serve it better than anyone else."

Patterson Veterinary

Sales for Patterson Veterinary, the company's second largest business, increased to $337.8 million, or up 3.5 percent on a constant currency basis. For veterinary sales by category, again on a constant currency basis, versus the year-ago quarter:
-- Consumable sales rose 3.5 percent;

-- Equipment sales increased 3.5 percent; and

-- Sales of other services and products, consisting primarily of technical
service, parts and labor, and software support services, were up 3.0

Anderson continued, "Patterson Veterinary, which amounts to just under one-third of our total sales, again reported growth in the fiscal third quarter, in spite of a shift in product mix from buy-sell to agency in the pharmaceutical product category. We continue to maintain the focus on enhancing our products and technologies across our geographic footprint that has led to our success in this market."

Patterson Medical

Sales for Patterson Medical, the company's rehabilitation supply and equipment business, totaled $104.7 million for the fiscal 2015 third quarter, or up 2.6 percent, excluding currency and divestiture impacts. Consolidated sales of Patterson Medical currently represent approximately 10 percent of total company sales.

Anderson said, "It's clear that the new focus in Patterson Medical continues to drive improved performance in this segment. Patterson Medical's ongoing operations delivered its third consecutive quarter of growth. We are confident that our emphasis on select rehabilitation markets gives the business a solid platform for future growth."

Share Repurchases and Dividends

Year to date, Patterson has repurchased approximately 1.2 million shares of its outstanding common stock, with a value of $47.5 million, leaving approximately 21 million shares for repurchase under the current authorization. The company also paid $20.2 million in cash dividends to shareholders in the fiscal third quarter and $60.3 million through the first nine months of fiscal 2015.

Year-to-Date Results

Consolidated sales for the first nine months of fiscal 2015 totaled $3.2 billion, an increase of 8.9 percent from $3.0 billion in the year-earlier period. Net income was $158.7 million, or $1.59 per diluted share, compared to net income of $152.5 million, or $1.50 per diluted share, in the year-earlier period; results from the nine months of fiscal 2014 exclude $0.08 per share of costs for the Patterson Medical restructuring.

Business Outlook

Anderson concluded, "As we move toward the end of our fiscal year, we are encouraged by improving market conditions and stable-to-strengthening demand across all of our businesses. We have taken, and continue to take, the steps necessary to position Patterson to capitalize on these improving fundamentals by driving efficiencies and enriching our product and service offerings and our geographic reach. We reaffirm our earnings guidance range for fiscal 2015 of $2.20-$2.30 per diluted share."

The following non-GAAP table is provided to adjust reported net income for the impact of the costs associated with restructuring the medical segment. Management believes that the adjusted income amounts provide a helpful representation of the company's current quarter performance.
