  • Baxter Int'l Q3 Profit Slides on Acquisition Costs; Adjusted EPS Matches Estimates, But Revenue Misses (BAX)

    Before the bell on Thursday, Baxter International Inc. (BAX) , a maker of medical products, reported a 7% year-over-year decline in third quarter profits, mostly due to the impact of charges related to its acquisition of Gambro. Excluding these charges, Baxter's third quarter earnings were in-line with Wall Street analysts' views. The Deerfield, Illinois-based company posted a third quarter net income of $544 million, or 99 cents per share, down from the $583 million, or $1.06 per share, earned in the same period a year ago. This decline in third quarter earnings was mostly due to special one-time charges totaling 20 cents per share related to Baxter's $3.9 billion acquisition of medical tech specialist Gambro AB. On an adjusted basis, excluding the special items like the one mentioned above, Baxter's third quarter earnings came in at $655 million, or $1.19 per share, up from $628 million, or $1.14 per share, the year before. According to analysts polled by Thomson Reuters, the company was expected to earn $1.19 per share in the third quarter. Baxter's net sales came in at $3.774 billion in the third quarter, up about 9% from the $3.477 billion in revenues posted in the third quarter of 2012. On average, analysts were expecting the company to see $3.81 billion in revenues, however. Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, the company sees earnings between $1.24 and $1.26 per share, with sales growth between 14% and 15%. Analysts expect the company to earn $1.26 per share on revenues of $4.31 billion in the fourth quarter. For the full year, Baxter sees earnings coming in between $4.65 and $4.67 per share on a sales growth of about 7%. Analysts expect the company to earn $4.67 per share on revenues of $15.24 billion in fiscal 2013. Baxter shares were down $1.56, or 2.31%, during pre-market trading on Thursday. The stock is up 1.35% year-to-date.

    Shares of Baxter International (BAX) offer a dividend yield of 2.90% based on Wednesday's closing price of $67.56 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.96 per share.
