AdaptHealth Signs Definitive Agreement to Acquire McKesson Corporation’s Patient Care Solutions Business

US-based home medical equipment (HME) provider AdaptHealth announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Patient Care Solutions (PCS) business from McKesson Corporation. The agreement still needs to go through typical closing conditions and is expected to be finalized in December 2019. AdaptHealth strengthens its geographic footprint while also expanding its product portfolio, ‘adding urological and ostomy products to our already comprehensive HME product portfolio, and significantly increase our exposure in areas such as wound care, breast pumps, incontinence supplies, and diabetic care.’

AdaptHealth CEO Luke McGee believes the addition of PCS’s products will double the organization’s addressable market.

We should expect PCS’s business to be fully integrated on AdaptHealth’s platform towards the end of 2020, with a total investment cost of $30 million, including restructuring costs.  PCS generated net revenues of approximately $134 million for the year ending October 31, 2019. 

In connection with the acquisition, AdaptHealth will enter into a supply and distribution agreement with McKesson Corporation concerning PCS’s HME service lines. Josh Pames, President and COO of AdaptHealth, added in the release that “the acquisition of PCS complements our existing PAP (sleep) resupply offering and will allow us to provide an expanded set of supplies to both the current customers of PCS and AdaptHealth.”

AdaptHealth has acquired six companies since July 2019 and 56 companies since 2012. The company recently went public and is listed on the NASDAQ under AHCO. The company has a market cap of $363 million with earnings per share (EPS) sitting at $0.02 as of November 27, 2019.
