RADNOR, Pa., March 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — VWR Corporation (NASDAQ: VWR), a leading, independent provider of laboratory products, services and solutions to the global life sciences, general research and applied markets, today reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014.
Fourth Quarter 2014 Highlights:
Consolidated revenues increased $42.3 million, or 4.0%, to $1.10 billion; up 5.9% on an organic basis
Americas and EMEA-APAC segments’ organic revenues increased 7.2% and 4.4%, respectively
Adjusted EPS increased 16.2% to $0.43
Operating cash flows of $104 million, a record quarterly level
Acquired Integra Companies, Inc. and STI Components, Inc. in November 2014, strengthening VWR’s position in the fast growing Bioprocess chemicals and consumables market
“Our fourth quarter saw acceleration in our growth trend in the Americas segment, with 7.2% organic revenue growth, fueled by strong sales to Biopharma customers and robust private label product sales. In addition, our EMEA-APAC segment continued its track-record, delivering yet another quarter of above-market organic growth,” said Manuel Brocke-Benz, President and Chief Executive Officer of VWR.
Mr. Brocke-Benz continued, “This solid organic revenue growth translated into even stronger earnings growth, with Adjusted Net Income increasing 16.8% and operating cash flow reaching a quarterly record level of $104 million. The fourth quarter topped off a highly successful year for VWR. The year benefited from recent investments in our management team, IT systems and infrastructure. In 2014, we delevered the Company, strengthened our balance sheet, increased our financial flexibility, and lowered our interest burden. All of these factors bolster our position as a leading global independent solutions provider to the lab market. I am confident that with VWR’s extensive product choice, supply chain excellence and differentiated services, we are ideally positioned to meet our customers’ needs and increase our share of global lab spending.”
