  • Reported net sales increased 6.5 percent year-over-year to $1.55 billion, and internal sales increased 6.9 percent.

  • Adjusted operating margin increased by 30 bps to 4.6 percent.

  • Dental segment internal sales increased 3.6 percent fueled by consumables growth of 13.6 percent.

  • Animal Health segment internal sales increased 10.0 percent driven by companion animal growth of 20.7 percent.

  • Delivered third-quarter GAAP earnings of $0.50 per diluted share and adjusted earnings1 of $0.58 per diluted share, an increase of 23.4 percent.

Patterson Companies, Inc. (Nasdaq: PDCO) today reported consolidated net sales of $1.55 billion (see attached Sales Summary for further details) in its fiscal third quarter ended January 23, 2021, an increase of 6.5 percent compared to the same period last year. Internal sales, which are adjusted for the effects of currency translation and changes in product selling relationships, increased 6.9 percent.

Reported net income attributable to Patterson Companies, Inc. for the third quarter of fiscal 2021 was $48.8 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, compared to $23.2 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, in the third quarter of fiscal 2020. Adjusted net income1 attributable to Patterson Companies, Inc., which excludes deal amortization, integration and business restructuring expenses, legal reserve costs and accelerated debt-related costs totaled $55.8 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, or $0.58 per diluted share, compared to $44.5 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2020, or $0.47 per diluted share. The 25.3 percent year-over-year increase in adjusted net income for the period is primarily attributed to strong sales execution, improved operating margins across both business segments, and the benefit of continued expense discipline during the fiscal 2021 third quarter.

"Patterson’s third quarter results demonstrate the continued focus and dedication of our team to help drive the success of our customers as we navigate the ongoing disruption of the pandemic," said Mark Walchirk, President and CEO of Patterson Companies. "Our commitment to strong execution and operational excellence, combined with our ongoing investments to broaden and enhance our value proposition, has enabled us to build additional momentum across our entire business – including increased sales and margin expansion in both our Dental and Animal Health segments during the third quarter.

"We grew adjusted EPS by 23 percent through the continued focus on improving our performance and creating value for our shareholders. Looking ahead, we remain confident about our strengthened position in each of our end markets and in Patterson's long-term value creation potential."

Patterson Dental

Reported net sales in our Dental segment for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, which represented approximately 42 percent of total company sales, were $648.9 million compared to $626.6 million in the third quarter of last year. Internal sales increased 3.6 percent compared to the fiscal 2020 third quarter, including 13.6 percent growth in consumables.

Patterson Animal Health

Reported net sales in our Animal Health segment for the third quarter of fiscal 2021, which comprised approximately 58 percent of the company’s total sales, were $894.3 million compared to $817.3 million in the third quarter of last year. Internal sales for the segment increased 10.0 percent from the fiscal 2020 third quarter with companion animal posting internal sales growth of 20.7 percent compared to the same period one year ago.

Balance Sheet and Capital Allocation

During the first nine months of fiscal 2021, Patterson Companies used $604.9 million of cash from operating activities and collected deferred purchase price receivables of $634.5 million, generating cash of $29.6 million, compared to generating $190.3 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2020. Free cash flow1 (see definition below and attached free cash flow table) generated during the first nine months of fiscal 2021 is down $120.0 million compared to the first nine months of fiscal 2020, primarily due to an increased level of working capital in the current period.

During the third quarter of fiscal 2021, Patterson Companies declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.26 per share. On a year-to-date basis, Patterson has returned $50.1 million in cash dividends to shareholders.

Year-to-Date Results

Consolidated reported net sales for the first nine months of fiscal 2021 totaled $4.35 billion, a 3.5 percent year-over-year increase. Internal sales also increased 3.5 percent compared to the first nine months of fiscal 2020. Reported net income attributable to Patterson Companies, Inc. was $127.2 million, or $1.32 per diluted share, compared to a $20.1 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, in last year's period. Adjusted net income1 attributable to Patterson Companies, Inc., which excludes deal amortization, integration and business restructuring expenses, legal reserve costs, accelerated debt-related costs and an investment gain, totaled $148.4 million, or $1.54 per diluted share. This compares to $106.5 million, or $1.12 per diluted share in the year-ago period, representing a 38 percent increase year-over-year.

Fiscal 2021 Guidance

Due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on business operations, Patterson is not providing fourth-quarter fiscal 2021 financial guidance at this time.

1Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP Measures table appearing behind the accompanying financial information is provided to adjust reported GAAP measures, namely operating income, income before taxes, income tax expense, net income, net income attributable to Patterson Companies, Inc. and diluted earnings per share attributable to Patterson Companies, Inc., for the impact of deal amortization, integration and business restructuring expenses, legal reserve costs, accelerated debt-related costs and an investment gain, along with the related tax effects of these items.

The term "free cash flow" used in this release is defined as net cash used in operating activities less capital expenditures less the one-time benefit from the initiation of our trade accounts receivables facilities plus the collection of deferred purchase price receivables.

In addition, the term "internal sales" used in this release represents net sales adjusted to exclude the impact of foreign currency and changes in product selling relationships. Foreign currency impact represents the difference in results that is attributable to fluctuations in currency exchange rates the company uses to convert results for all foreign entities where the functional currency is not the U.S. dollar. The company calculates the impact as the difference between the current period results translated using the current period currency exchange rates and using the comparable prior period's currency exchange rates. The company believes the disclosure of net sales changes in constant currency provides useful supplementary information to investors in light of significant fluctuations in currency rates.

Management believes that these non-GAAP measures may provide a helpful representation of the company's third-quarter performance and enable comparison of financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance. These non-GAAP financial measures are presented solely for informational and comparative purposes and should not be regarded as a replacement for corresponding, similarly captioned, GAAP measures.

Investors can listen to a live webcast of the conference call at www.pattersoncompanies.com. The conference call will be archived on the Patterson Companies website.

This press release contains, and our officers and representatives may from time to time make, certain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of the safe harbor provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements regarding future financial performance, and the objectives and expectations of management. Forward-looking statements often include words such as "believes," "expects," "anticipates," "estimates," "intends," "plans," "seeks" or words of similar meaning, or future or conditional verbs, such as "will," "should," "could" or "may." Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future performance. Instead, they are based only on our current beliefs, expectations and assumptions regarding the future of our business, future plans and strategies, projections, anticipated events and trends, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control. Our actual results and financial condition may differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Therefore, you should not place undue reliance on any of these forward-looking statements.

Any number of factors could affect our actual results and cause such results to differ materially from those contemplated by any forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, the following: the effects of the highly competitive dental and animal health supply markets in which we compete; the COVID-19 pandemic and measures taken in response thereto; general economic conditions, including political and economic uncertainty; risks from disruption to our information systems; our ability to comply with restrictive covenants in our amended credit agreement; our dependence on relationships with sales representatives, service technicians and customers; our ability to realize the long-term strategic benefits of our acquisition of Animal Health International; potential disruption of distribution capabilities, including service issues with third-party shippers; our ability to provide our sales force and customers with the latest technology; our dependence on suppliers for the manufacture and supply of the products we sell; material changes in our purchasing relationship with suppliers; the risk that private label sales could adversely affect our relationships with suppliers; our dependence on positive perceptions of Patterson’s reputation; risks inherent in acquiring other businesses; the risk that our acquired technology or developed technology might not be successful in maintaining or gaining customers; litigation risks, including new or unanticipated litigation developments and new or unanticipated regulatory investigations; changes in consumer preferences; regulatory restrictions; the cyclicality of the livestock market; the outbreak of an infectious disease within the production animal or companion animal population; pressure from animal rights groups; adverse changes in supplier rebates; fluctuations in quarterly financial results; volatility in the price of our stock; risks from the expansion of customer purchasing power; increases in over-the-counter sales of companion animal products; the risks inherent in international operations, including currency fluctuations; the effects of health care reform; failure to comply with regulatory requirements and data privacy laws; cyberattacks or other privacy or data security breaches; the risk of the products we sell becoming obsolete or containing undetected errors; volatility in the financial markets; our dependence on our senior management; our dependence on leadership development and succession planning; disruptions from our enterprise resource planning system; risks associated with shareholder activism; the risk of being required to record impairment charges; the risk of audit by tax authorities; risks associated with interest rate fluctuations; and the risk that our governing documents and Minnesota law may discourage takeovers and business combinations. The order in which these factors appear should not be construed to indicate their relative importance or priority. We caution that these factors may not be exhaustive, accordingly, any forward-looking statements contained herein should not be relied upon as a prediction of actual results.

You should carefully consider these and other relevant factors, including those risk factors in Part I, Item 1A, ("Risk Factors") in our most recent Form 10-K, as amended and supplemented by our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended October 24, 2020, and information which may be contained in our other filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, when reviewing any forward-looking statement. Investors should understand it is impossible to predict or identify all such factors or risks. As such, you should not consider the foregoing list, or the risks identified in our SEC filings, to be a complete discussion of all potential risks or uncertainties.

Any forward-looking statement made by us in this press release is based only on information currently available to us and speaks only as of the date on which it is made. We do not undertake any obligation to release publicly any revisions to any forward-looking statements whether written or oral, that may be made from time to time, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.
