Financial report summary

  • The COVID-19 pandemic and measures taken in response thereto had, and may continue to have, adverse effects on our results of operations and our financial condition, and the full impact of the pandemic will depend on future developments, which are uncertain and cannot be predicted.
  • Uncertain macro-economic conditions, including inflationary pressure, could materially adversely affect demand for dental and animal health products and services, thereby materially adversely affecting our results of operations.
  • Customer retention and business development depend heavily on our relationships with our sales representatives and service technicians, who interact directly with our customers, and the technological products and services we offer.
  • Disruption to our distribution capabilities, including service issues with our third-party shippers, could materially adversely affect our results.
  • We are dependent on our suppliers and exposed to the risks of their businesses, because we generally do not manufacture the products we sell.
  • The products we sell are subject to market and technological obsolescence; our software products may contain undetected errors or bugs when released.
  • Adverse changes in supplier rebates or other purchasing incentives could negatively affect our business.
  • Sales of private label products entail additional risks, including the risk that such sales could adversely affect our relationships with suppliers.
  • Patterson’s continued success is substantially dependent on positive perceptions of Patterson’s reputation.
  • Risks inherent in asset or business acquisitions and dispositions could offset the anticipated benefits of such transactions, and we may face difficulty in efficiently and effectively integrating acquired businesses.
  • Our credit agreements contain restrictive covenants and additional limits and our other debt instruments contain cross-default provisions, which limit our business and financing activities.
  • Turnover or loss of key personnel or highly skilled employees, including executive officers, could disrupt our operations and any inability to attract and retain qualified personnel could harm our business.
  • Our governing documents, other documents to which we are a party, and Minnesota law may discourage takeovers and business combinations that our shareholders might consider to be in their best interests.
  • Our business and operations are subject to risks related to climate change.
  • The dental and animal health supply markets are highly competitive and consolidating, and we may not be able to compete successfully.
  • Our animal health segment is exposed to the risks of the production animal business, including changes in consumer demand for food animal products, the cyclical livestock market, weather conditions and the availability of natural resources, and other factors outside our control, as well as risks of the companion animal business, including the possibility of disease adversely affecting the pet population.
  • The formation or expansion of group purchasing organizations (“GPOs”), provider networks and buying groups may place us at a competitive disadvantage.
  • Increases in over-the-counter sales of and e-commerce options for companion animal products, or sales of companion animal products from non-veterinarian sources, could adversely affect our business.
  • Change and uncertainty in the health care industry could materially adversely affect our business.
  • Failure to comply with existing and future U.S. and foreign laws and regulatory requirements, including those governing the distribution of pharmaceuticals and controlled substances, could subject us to claims or otherwise harm our business.
  • If we fail to comply with laws and regulations relating to health care fraud or other laws and regulations, we could suffer penalties or be required to make significant changes to our operations, which could materially adversely affect our business.
  • We are subject to a variety of litigation that could adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.
  • If we fail to comply with the evolving laws and regulations relating to the confidentiality of sensitive personal information or standards in electronic health records or transmissions, we could be required to make significant changes to our products, or incur substantial fines, penalties or other liabilities.
  • Tax legislation could materially adversely affect our financial results and tax liabilities.
  • Our international operations are subject to inherent risks that could adversely affect our operating results.
  • Risks generally associated with information systems, software products and cybersecurity attacks could adversely affect our results of operations.
Management Discussion
  • Net sales. Consolidated net sales in fiscal 2022 were $6,499.4 million, an increase of 9.9% from $5,912.1 million in fiscal 2021. Sales were positively impacted by an estimated 1.9% due to the extra week of results in the current year. Foreign exchange rate changes had a favorable impact of 0.7% on fiscal 2022 sales. Sales of certain products previously recognized on a gross basis were recognized on a net basis during fiscal 2022. This change in revenue recognition was driven by changes in contractual terms with certain suppliers in our Animal Health segment. The impact of this change in revenue recognition for certain products was partially offset by the impact of the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Miller Vet on sales for fiscal 2022, resulting in a net decrease in sales of approximately 1.8%.
