Our team members have embraced this transformation and are demonstrating tremendous commitment to serving caregivers and winning in the marketplace."

David M. Bronson, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, commented, "Traction in our core business strategies, combined with the impact from recent acquisitions, led to much-improved revenue growth in the first quarter of our fiscal year 2013. Our Physician business, including Laboratory, grew by 4.6%, excluding current year M&A. Gross margins in continuing operations improved by 105 basis points from the prior year, driven by a continued focus on growth of our private label product sales, which increased by over 10%. Consolidated cash flow from operations of just under $23 million for the first quarter helped to fund our acquisition activities and the repurchase of 370,000 shares. The process of divesting our Specialty Dental and Skilled Nursing businesses is proceeding according to expectations."
