CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., August 03, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AmerisourceBergen Corporation (NYSE: ABC) today reported that in its fiscal year 2022 third quarter ended June 30, 2022, revenue increased 12.5 percent year-over-year to $60.1 billion. On the basis of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), diluted earnings per share (EPS) was $1.92 for the June quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to $1.40 in the prior year quarter.

AmerisourceBergen is updating its outlook for fiscal year 2022. The Company does not provide forward-looking guidance on a GAAP basis, as discussed below in Fiscal Year 2022 Expectations. Adjusted diluted EPS guidance has been raised from the previous range of $10.80 to $11.05 to a range of $10.90 to $11.10.

"AmerisourceBergen delivered another quarter of strong results, and we have raised our full year outlook, driven by our team members' continued strong execution, our differentiated solutions, and the resilience of our businesses," said Steven H. Collis, Chairman, President & Chief Executive Officer of AmerisourceBergen.

"As a global healthcare solutions leader, driven by our 42,000 team members, we continue to deliver on our strategic imperatives and further strengthen our value proposition to our upstream and downstream partners," Mr. Collis continued.

Below, AmerisourceBergen presents descriptive summaries of the Company’s GAAP and adjusted (non-GAAP) quarterly results. In the tables that follow, GAAP results and GAAP to non-GAAP reconciliations are presented. For more information related to non-GAAP financial measures, including adjustments made in the periods presented, please refer to the "Supplemental Information Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures" following the tables.

Third Quarter GAAP Results

  • Revenue: In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, revenue was $60.1 billion, up 12.5 percent compared to the same quarter in the previous fiscal year, reflecting a 120.3 percent increase in revenue within International Healthcare Solutions, which was primarily driven by the June 2021 acquisition of Alliance Healthcare, and a 6.0 percent increase in U.S. Healthcare Solutions revenue.

  • Gross Profit: Gross profit in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was $2.0 billion, a 6.7 percent increase compared to the same period in the previous fiscal year primarily due to an increase in gross profit in International Healthcare Solutions, which was largely driven by the June 2021 acquisition of Alliance Healthcare, and an increase in gross profit in U.S. Healthcare Solutions. The increase in gross profit was partially offset by a decrease in gains related to antitrust litigation settlements, a LIFO expense in the current year period versus a LIFO credit in the previous fiscal year period, and the Turkey foreign exchange remeasurement expense due to its economy now being considered highly inflationary in the current year quarter. Gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 3.36 percent, a decrease of 18 basis points from the prior year quarter.

  • Operating Expenses: In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, operating expenses were $1.5 billion, a 20.6 percent increase compared to the same period in the previous fiscal year, primarily as a result of increases in distribution, selling, and administrative expenses and depreciation and amortization expense compared to the prior year quarter, largely due to the June 2021 acquisition of Alliance Healthcare, and a goodwill impairment charge related to Profarma in the current year quarter. The increase in operating expenses was partially offset by a reduction of opioid legal settlement accruals as the prior year quarter included a $124.3 million expense accrual.

  • Operating Income: In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, operating income was $487.3 million, a 21.5 percent decrease compared to the same period in the previous fiscal year due to the increase in operating expenses and partially offset by higher gross profit. Operating income as a percentage of revenue was 0.81 percent in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, a decrease of 35 basis points when compared to the prior year quarter.

  • Interest Expense, Net: In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, net interest expense of $52.9 million was up 3.0 percent versus the prior year quarter primarily due to an increase in debt as a result of the June 2021 acquisition of Alliance Healthcare.

  • Effective Tax Rate: The effective tax rate was 23.7 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2022. This compares to 48.5 percent in the prior year quarter, which was negatively impacted by tax reform in the United Kingdom.

  • Diluted Earnings Per Share: Diluted earnings per share was $1.92 in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, a 37.1 percent increase compared to $1.40 in the previous fiscal year’s third quarter. The increase was primarily due to the lower effective tax rate, offset in part by the decline in operating income.

  • Diluted Shares Outstanding: Diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 were 211.7 million, an increase of 2.8 million shares, or 1.4 percent versus the prior fiscal year third quarter resulting from stock option exercises, restricted stock vesting, and the June 2021 issuance of 2 million shares of the Company's common stock to Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. ("WBA") in connection with the acquisition of Alliance Healthcare, partially offset by share repurchases.

Third Quarter Adjusted (non-GAAP) Results

  • Revenue: No adjustments were made to the GAAP presentation of revenue. In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, revenue was $60.1 billion, up 12.5 percent compared to the same quarter in the previous fiscal year, reflecting a 120.3 percent increase in revenue within International Healthcare Solutions, which was primarily driven by the June 2021 acquisition of Alliance Healthcare, and a 6.0 percent increase in U.S. Healthcare Solutions revenue.

  • Adjusted Gross Profit: Adjusted gross profit in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was $2.1 billion, a 27.0 percent increase compared to the same period in the previous fiscal year due to increases in gross profit in International Healthcare Solutions, which was primarily driven by the June 2021 acquisition of Alliance Healthcare, and U.S. Healthcare Solutions. Adjusted gross profit as a percentage of revenue was 3.44 percent in the fiscal 2022 third quarter, an increase of 39 basis points when compared to the prior year quarter primarily driven by the June 2021 acquisition of Alliance Healthcare and fees earned from the distribution of government-owned COVID-19 treatments.

  • Adjusted Operating Expenses: In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, adjusted operating expenses were $1.3 billion, a 31.5 percent increase, primarily as a result of increases in distribution, selling, and administrative expenses and depreciation expense compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to the June 2021 acquisition of Alliance Healthcare.

  • Adjusted Operating Income: In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, adjusted operating income was $756.2 million, a 19.9 percent increase compared to the same period in the prior fiscal year. The increase was due to a 74.8 percent increase in operating income within International Healthcare Solutions and a 9.5 percent increase in U.S. Healthcare Solutions' operating income. Adjusted operating income as a percentage of revenue was 1.26 percent in the fiscal 2022 third quarter, an increase of 8 basis points when compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to the June 2021 Alliance Healthcare acquisition and fees earned from the distribution of government-owned COVID-19 treatments.

  • Interest Expense, Net: No adjustments were made to the GAAP presentation of net interest expense. In the third quarter of fiscal 2022, net interest expense of $52.9 million was up 3.0 percent versus the prior year quarter primarily due to an increase in debt as a result of the June 2021 acquisition of Alliance Healthcare.

  • Adjusted Effective Tax Rate: The adjusted effective tax rate was 20.2 percent for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 compared to 21.0 percent in the prior year quarter.

  • Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share: Adjusted diluted earnings per share was $2.62 in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, a 21.3 percent increase compared to $2.16 in the previous fiscal year’s third quarter.

  • Diluted Shares Outstanding: No adjustments were made to the GAAP presentation of diluted shares outstanding. Diluted weighted average shares outstanding for the third quarter of fiscal 2022 were 211.7 million, an increase of 2.8 million shares, or 1.4 percent versus the prior fiscal year third quarter resulting from stock option exercises, restricted stock vesting, and the June 2021 issuance of 2 million shares of the Company's common stock to WBA in connection with the acquisition of Alliance Healthcare, partially offset by share repurchases.

Segment Discussion

The Company is organized geographically based upon the products and services it provides to its customers. In the first quarter of fiscal 2022, the Company re-aligned its reporting structure under two reportable segments: U.S. Healthcare Solutions and International Healthcare Solutions. U.S. Healthcare Solutions consists of the legacy Pharmaceutical Distribution Services reportable segment (excluding Profarma), MWI Animal Health, Xcenda, Lash Group, and ICS 3PL. International Healthcare Solutions consists of Alliance Healthcare, World Courier, Innomar, Profarma, and Profarma Specialty (until it was divested in June 2022). The Company’s previously reported segment results have been revised to conform to its re-aligned reporting structure.

U.S. Healthcare Solutions

U.S. Healthcare Solutions revenue was $53.4 billion in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, an increase of 6.0 percent compared to the same quarter in the prior fiscal year primarily due to overall market growth and increased sales to specialty physician practices, and partially offset by a decline in sales of commercial COVID-19 treatments. Segment operating income of $579.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was up 9.5 percent compared to the same period in the previous fiscal year as a result of an increase in gross profit, including fees earned from the distribution of government-owned COVID-19 treatments and gross profit on sales to specialty physician practices.

International Healthcare Solutions

Revenue in International Healthcare Solutions was $6.7 billion in the third quarter of fiscal 2022, an increase from the previous fiscal year’s third quarter of 120.3 percent, primarily due to the June 2021 acquisition of Alliance Healthcare. Segment operating income in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 was $176.3 million, an increase of 74.8 percent, primarily due to the June 2021 acquisition of Alliance Healthcare and strong operating performance at World Courier.

Fiscal Year 2022 Expectations

The Company does not provide forward-looking guidance on a GAAP basis as certain financial information, the probable significance of which cannot be determined, is not available or cannot be reasonably estimated. Please refer to the Supplemental Information Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures following the tables for additional information.

Fiscal Year 2022 Expectations on an Adjusted (non-GAAP) Basis

AmerisourceBergen is now updating its fiscal year 2022 financial guidance to reflect the stronger than expected performance of several of its businesses and a lower average diluted share count. The company's previously communicated expectations for COVID contributions remain generally unchanged, with the June quarter contribution being in line with expectations. The Company now expects:

  • Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share to be in the range of $10.90 to $11.10, raised from the previous range of $10.80 to $11.05.

Additional expectations now include:

  • U.S. Healthcare Solutions operating income to be in the range of $2.44 billion to $2.48 billion, representing growth of 8% to 10%, raising the lower end of the previous range of $2.42 billion to $2.48 billion;

  • Weighted average diluted shares to be in the range of 211 million to 211.5 million shares for the fiscal year, lowered from the previous range of approximately 212 million shares;

  • Adjusted free cash flow to be in the range of $2.3 billion to $2.5 billion, raising the lower end of the previous range of $2.0 billion to $2.5 billion.

All other previously communicated aspects of the Company's fiscal year 2022 financial guidance and assumptions remain the same.

Dividend Declaration

The Company's Board of Directors declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.46 per common share, payable August 29, 2022, to stockholders of record at the close of business on August 15, 2022.

Opioid Litigation

On June 27, 2022, AmerisourceBergen and the two other national pharmaceutical distributors entered into an agreement with the State of Oklahoma and participating subdivisions to resolve opioid-related claims, consistent with Oklahoma's allocations under the comprehensive settlement agreement to settle the vast majority of opioid lawsuits filed by state and local governmental entities. The agreement includes certain contingencies, including attaining the required rate of subdivision participation by September 23, 2022. The Oklahoma settlement agreement brings the number of States with whom the Company has recently settled opioid-related claims to 48 of 49 eligible states.

On July 31, 2022, the Company and the two other distributors reached an agreement to pay up to $400 million in a settlement with West Virginia subdivisions (excluding Cabell County and City of Huntington) to resolve opioid-related claims. The Company’s 31.0% share of the $400 million settlement amount is a component of its overall $6.4 billion total liability accrual. The agreement is subject to certain contingencies, including the rate of subdivision participation.
