10:21 EDTCAHCardinal Health to acquire majority stake in naviHealth
Cardinal Health announced that it is acquiring a majority stake in naviHealth and expects the transaction to close later this week. Privately-held naviHealth partners with health plans, health systems and providers to manage the post-acute segment of the care continuum. naviHealth's principal investor, Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe, along with management, will continue to have an ownership interest in the business. Cardinal Health said it is acquiring 71% of naviHealth for approximately $290M, with a goal of acquiring the entire business within four years, in accordance with a series of call/put rights during that period of time. Cardinal expects this acquisition to be neutral to its FY16 non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations as it is a partial period, and slightly accretive to non-GAAP diluted earnings per share from continuing operations beginning in FY17, the first full year post close. "From a GAAP perspective, it is too early in the process to provide any specific guidance on the amortization of intangible assets. Once the fair value estimates are complete, we will provide additional details. Recall that our FY16 assumptions provided on our earnings call on July 30, 2015 only included those acquisitions that had been completed through June 30," the company stated in an FAQ document related to the deal.
