Sonic Healthcare Seeks Acquisitions

Sonic Healthcare Limited (ASX:SHL) is looking for acquisitions. The indicative laboratory revenue split among the countries Sonic operates in puts Australia at about 30% of total laboratory business globally, a reduction on previous years. Colin Goldschmidt, Chief Executive of Sonic Healthcare said, "I expect that percentage to keep diminishing, not because our Australian business will diminish but (because) we are going to be growing faster in the other -segments of the global pie likely through acquisitions". "Growth in Britain would come from new contract wins, but in continental Europe and the US his team would continue to hunt for acquisitions."

Sonic Healthcare Limited Reports Earnings Results for the Year Ended June 30, 2015; Provides Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal Year 2016

EBITDA (before expensing non-recurring costs) was AUD 731 million against AUD 738 million a year ago. Net profit (after expensing non-recurring costs) was AUD 363 million against AUD 385 million a year ago. Net interest-bearing debt was AUD 1,976 million as on June 30, 2015 against AUD 1,739 million as on June 30, 2014. The company expected EBITDA of AUD 815 million - AUD 840 million for the fiscal year 2016 on a Constant Currency basis (applying 2015 average currency exchange rates to translate offshore earnings for 2016), equivalent to AUD 850 million - AUD 875 million at current exchange rates. Net interest expense is expected to increase by 5%-10% from the 2015 level of AUD 52 million on a constant currency basis as a result of the Medisupport acquisition completed in July 2015. Underlying floating interest rates are assumed to remain constant at current levels. The effective tax rate is expected to be approximately 25%. This guidance excludes the impact of any future business acquisitions.
