LabCorp Announces 2019 Third Quarter Results and Updates 2019 Guidance

BURLINGTON, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

  • Q3 revenue of $2.9 billion, up 3.4% over $2.8 billion last year
  • Q3 diluted EPS of $2.25, down from $3.10 last year, which included the net gain on the disposition of the Food Solutions business of $1.22 per share
  • Q3 adjusted EPS of $2.90, up 5.8% over $2.74 last year
  • Q3 free cash flow of $363 million, up 136% over $154 million last year
  • 2019 adjusted EPS guidance of $11.20 to $11.30, up 2% to 3% over 2018
  • 2019 free cash flow guidance of $950 million to $1.05 billion, up 3% to 13% over 2018

LabCorp® (or the Company) (LH) today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019, and updated 2019 guidance.

“LabCorp delivered another excellent quarter, with solid results driven by strong demand across both businesses,” said David P. King, chairman and CEO of LabCorp. “The enterprise posted robust gains in revenue and adjusted earnings per share, and we generated $363 million in free cash flow as we continued to weave the two businesses together into a powerful unified whole. We continued our disciplined capital allocation program, repurchasing $100 million of shares and successfully executing several tuck-in acquisitions. Covance excelled across all measures and, despite the market headwinds we are experiencing, Diagnostics turned in another impressive performance. We occupy a unique, differentiated market position in life sciences, giving us great optimism about our opportunity to grow the business and create shareholder value for the rest of 2019 and for many years to come.”

Consolidated Results

Third Quarter Results

Revenue for the quarter was $2.93 billion, an increase of 3.4% over $2.83 billion in the third quarter of 2018. The increase in revenue was primarily due to acquisitions of 2.8% and organic growth of 2.2% (which includes the negative impact from PAMA of 0.9%), partially offset by the disposition of businesses of 1.3% and negative foreign currency translation of 0.3%.

Operating income for the quarter was $339.9 million, or 11.6% of revenue, compared to $343.4 million, or 12.1%, in the third quarter of 2018. The decrease in operating income and margin was primarily due to lower Medicare and Medicaid pricing as a result of PAMA and higher personnel costs (primarily driven by merit increases and one additional payroll day that predominantly impacted LabCorp Diagnostics), partially offset by strong demand and LaunchPad savings. The Company recorded restructuring charges, special items, and amortization, which together totaled $90.6 million in the quarter, compared to $85.7 million during the same period in 2018. Adjusted operating income (excluding amortization, restructuring charges, and special items) for the quarter was $430.5 million, or 14.7% of revenue, compared to $429.1 million, or 15.2%, in the third quarter of 2018. Excluding the negative impact from PAMA, adjusted operating income grew $28.1 million over last year.

Net earnings for the quarter were $220.7 million, compared to $318.8 million in the third quarter of 2018. Diluted EPS were $2.25 in the quarter, a decrease of 27.4% compared to $3.10 in the same period in 2018. The decline in net earnings and diluted EPS in the quarter was due to a net gain on the disposition of the Food Solutions business in the third quarter of 2018, which increased net earnings and diluted EPS by $125.3 million and $1.22 per share, respectively. Adjusted EPS (excluding amortization, restructuring charges, and special items) were $2.90 in the quarter, an increase of 5.8% over $2.74 in the third quarter of 2018.

Operating cash flow for the quarter was $455.6 million, compared to $251.9 million in the third quarter of 2018. The increase in operating cash flow was primarily due to higher cash earnings and favorable working capital. Capital expenditures totaled $92.6 million, compared to $97.9 million a year ago. As a result, free cash flow (operating cash flow less capital expenditures) was $363.0 million, compared to $154.0 million in the third quarter of 2018.

At the end of the quarter, the Company’s cash balance and total debt were $361.1 million and $6.6 billion, respectively. During the quarter, the Company invested $149.2 million in acquisitions and repurchased $100.0 million of stock, representing approximately 0.6 million shares. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had $950.0 million of authorization remaining under its share repurchase program.

Year-To-Date Results

Revenue was $8.60 billion, an increase of 0.6% over last year's $8.55 billion. The increase in revenue was primarily due to growth from acquisitions of 1.6% and organic growth of 1.4% (which includes the negative impact from PAMA of 0.9%), partially offset by the disposition of businesses of 1.7% and negative foreign currency translation of 0.7%.

Operating income was $993.8 million, or 11.6% of revenue, compared to $1,018.0 million, or 11.9%, in the first nine months of 2018. The decrease in operating income and margin was primarily due to lower Medicare and Medicaid pricing as a result of PAMA, higher personnel costs (primarily driven by merit increases), disposition of businesses, cybersecurity expenses, and a favorable one-time legal settlement in 2018, partially offset by organic demand, the Company’s LaunchPad initiatives, and acquisitions. The Company recorded restructuring charges, special items, and amortization which together totaled $295.0 million in the first nine months of the year, compared to $310.4 million during the same period in 2018. Adjusted operating income (excluding amortization, restructuring charges, and special items) was $1.29 billion, or 15.0% of revenue, compared to $1.33 billion, or 15.5%, in the first nine months of 2018. Excluding the negative impact from PAMA, adjusted operating income grew $41.2 million over last year.

Net earnings in the first nine months of 2019 were $596.7 million, or $6.04 per diluted share, compared to $725.8 million, or $7.04 per diluted share, last year. The decline in net earnings and diluted EPS in the first nine months of 2019 was due to a net gain on the disposition of the Food Solutions business in the third quarter of 2018, which increased net earnings and diluted EPS by $125.3 million and $1.22 per share, respectively. Adjusted EPS (excluding amortization, restructuring and special items) were $8.46, a decrease of 0.5% compared to $8.50 in the first nine months of 2018.

Operating cash flow was $874.9 million, compared to $819.0 million in the first nine months of 2018. The increase in operating cash flow was due to higher cash earnings. Capital expenditures totaled $272.0 million, compared to $257.6 million during the same period in 2018. As a result, free cash flow (operating cash flow less capital expenditures) was $602.9 million, compared to $561.4 million in the first nine months of 2018.

The following segment results exclude amortization, restructuring charges, special items, and unallocated corporate expenses.

Third Quarter Segment Results

LabCorp Diagnostics

Revenue for the quarter was $1.76 billion, an increase of 0.4% over $1.75 billion in the third quarter of 2018. The 0.4% increase in revenue was due to organic growth of 0.9% and acquisitions of 0.8%, partially offset by the negative impact from the disposition of businesses of 1.3%. The organic revenue increase of 0.9% includes the negative impact from PAMA of 1.5%.

Total volume (measured by requisitions), excluding the disposition of businesses, increased by 0.7%, as acquisition volume contributed 0.5% and organic volume increased by 0.3%. Organic volume was negatively impacted by approximately 1.0% from managed care contract changes. Excluding the disposition of businesses, revenue per requisition increased by 1.0%, despite the negative impact from PAMA of 1.5%.

Adjusted operating income (excluding amortization, restructuring charges, and special items) for the quarter was $296.3 million, or 16.8% of revenue, compared to $331.5 million, or 18.9%, in the third quarter of 2018. The $35.2 million decline in adjusted operating income and 210 basis point decline in adjusted operating margin were primarily due to the negative PAMA impact of $26.8 million and one additional payroll day. Organic revenue growth and LaunchPad savings were partially offset by higher personnel expense (primarily driven by merit increases). The Company remains on track to deliver approximately $200 million of net savings from its three-year Diagnostics LaunchPad initiative by the end of 2021.

Covance Drug Development

Revenue for the quarter was $1.18 billion, an increase of 8.7% over $1.08 billion in the third quarter of 2018. The increase in revenue was primarily due to acquisitions of 6.0% and organic growth of 4.7%, partially offset by the disposition of the Covance Research Products business of 1.2% and negative foreign currency translation of 0.8%. Excluding lower pass-throughs, organic revenue grew mid-to-high single digits.

Adjusted operating income (excluding amortization, restructuring charges, and special items) for the quarter was $175.0 million, or 14.9% of revenue, compared to $131.3 million, or 12.1%, in the third quarter of 2018. The $43.7 million increase in adjusted operating income and 270 basis point increase in adjusted operating margin were primarily due to organic demand, acquisitions, and LaunchPad savings, partially offset by higher personnel costs. The Company is on track to deliver $150 million of net savings from its three-year Covance LaunchPad initiative by the end of 2020.

Net orders and net book-to-bill during the trailing twelve months were $5.71 billion and 1.28, respectively. Backlog at the end of the quarter was $10.71 billion compared to $10.29 billion last quarter, and the Company expects approximately $4.2 billion of its backlog to convert into revenue in the next twelve months.

***

Outlook for 2019

The following guidance assumes foreign exchange rates effective as of September 30, 2019, for the remainder of the year and includes the estimated impact from currently anticipated capital allocation.

  • Revenue growth of 1.5% to 2.0% over 2018 revenue of $11.33 billion, which includes the negative impact from the disposition of businesses of approximately 1.5% and foreign currency translation of 0.6%. This is an increase over the prior guidance of 1.0% to 2.0%.
  • Revenue in LabCorp Diagnostics is expected to be -1.5% to -0.5% as compared to 2018 revenue of $7.03 billion, which includes the negative impact from the disposition of businesses of approximately 2% and foreign currency translation of 0.1%. This is an improvement over the prior guidance of -3.0% to -2.0%.
  • Revenue growth in Covance Drug Development of 5.5% to 7.5% over 2018 revenue of $4.31 billion, a reduction from the prior guidance of 5.5% to 8.5%. The reduction of the midpoint of guidance is due to an additional unfavorable foreign currency translation impact of 0.4% compared to prior guidance. This revised guidance includes the full year negative impact from foreign currency translation of 1.3%.
  • Adjusted EPS of $11.20 to $11.30, an increase of 1.6% to 2.5% over 2018 adjusted EPS of $11.02. This is a narrowing of the range as compared to the prior guidance of $11.10 to $11.40.
  • Free cash flow (operating cash flow less capital expenditures) of $950 million to $1.05 billion, which is an increase of 2.6% to 13.4% over 2018 and unchanged from the prior guidance.

Use of Adjusted Measures

The Company has provided in this press release and accompanying tables “adjusted” financial information that has not been prepared in accordance with GAAP, including adjusted net income, adjusted EPS (or adjusted net income per share), adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin, free cash flow, and certain segment information. The Company believes these adjusted measures are useful to investors as a supplement to, but not as a substitute for, GAAP measures, in evaluating the Company’s operational performance. The Company further believes that the use of these non-GAAP financial measures provides an additional tool for investors in evaluating operating results and trends, and growth and shareholder returns, as well as in comparing the Company’s financial results with the financial results of other companies. However, the Company notes that these adjusted measures may be different from and not directly comparable to the measures presented by other companies. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures are included in the tables accompanying this press release.

The Company today is providing an investor relations presentation with additional information on its business and operations, which is available in the investor relations section of the Company's website at http://www.labcorp.com. Analysts and investors are directed to the website to review this supplemental information.
