Owens and Minor Businesses

On October 12, 2022, the company announced changes to its executive leadership team structure. OMI shares dropped more than 31% following the executive leadership changes.

Along with leadership updates, the business lowered its earnings guidance, which is expected to result in a $43 to $73 million fall from initial projections. The company reduced its EPS forecast for the entire year. It now anticipates EPS in a range of $2.50 to $2.60 compared to prior guidance of $2.85 to $3.15. The company completed the acquisition of American Contract Systems in December 2021.

Owens & Minor appointed Andrew Long as EVP and CEO of its Products & Healthcare Services segment. Following the appointment, Mr. Long relinquished his duties and responsibilities as Chief Financial Officer, after having served as Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer since joining the company in November 2019. Prior to that, he served as the Chief Executive Officer of Insys Therapeutics. He was a member of the Board of Directors of Insys from April 2019 until his resignation on November 8, 2019. From 2015 to 2017, Mr. Long served as senior vice president of Global Finance at Patheon, a pharmaceutical company. Prior to Patheon, he served as Vice President of Finance for multiple divisions at Thermo Fisher Scientific from 2006 until 2015.

Jeffrey T. Jochims, who is leaving the company, is being replaced by Long. Additionally, Long, who has held the position since joining the company in November 2019, has been replaced as EVP and CFO by Alexander J. Bruni.

As SVP of finance, Bruni began working for Owens & Minor in April 2020. He initially oversaw corporate FP&A, then moved on to oversee the finance department for the products and healthcare services area. He most recently held the position of financial leader for the patient direct division. Bruni previously served as CFO and COO of Centerline Communications and VP of Finance at Patheon, before joining the Owens & Minor team.

Edward Pesicka, Owens & Minor’s President and CEO stated,

While the Patient Direct segment continues to perform well, the Products & Healthcare Services segment is facing more pressures than previously expected with the unfavorable macro-economic conditions that show no signs of abating, along with elevated customer stocking levels and continued lower than expected hospital procedure volume. Accordingly, the pace of change at Owens & Minor must accelerate and I believe the leadership changes announced today will provide the company with the best opportunity to contend with these headwinds.
