PharMerica Corporation reported unaudited consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported revenues of USD 511.6 million against USD 452.2 million a year ago. Operating income was USD 16.8 million against USD 10.3 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was USD 15.4 million against USD 7.8 million a year ago. Net income was USD 9.6 million against USD 4.8 million a year ago.

Adjusted diluted earnings per share were USD 0.48 against USD 0.37 a year ago. The increase in revenue was driven by 2014 acquisitions, growth in both specialty oncology and specialty infusion, and branded drug inflation. The increase in cash from operating activities was due primarily to the USD 50.0 million in ABDC drug purchase payments withheld, the corporation’s inventory purchasing strategy, and an increase in net income which were partially offset by an increase in ABDC rebates receivable.
The company reaffirmed earnings guidance for the year 2015. For the year, the company expects revenue in the range of USD 1.950 billion to USD 2.050 billion; adjusted diluted earnings per share in the range of USD 1.55 to USD 1.65; and adjusted EBITDA in the range of USD 137 million to USD 142 million.
