November 28, 2018

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 28, 2018--Patterson Companies, Inc. (Nasdaq: PDCO) today announced that it has rescheduled the release of its fiscal 2019 second-quarter earnings results and conference call to Thursday, December 6, 2018.

The rescheduled date will provide the company, together with its independent accounting firm, with more time to evaluate the impact on non-operating income related to the appreciation of shares associated with investments in joint ventures in light of recent accounting pronouncements. This potential change in accounting treatment does not relate to the company’s business operations or the accounting for those operations.

Q2 Net Sales Results

Patterson also announced net sales results for the fiscal second quarter ended October 27, 2018. The company reported consolidated net sales of approximately $1.4 billion, an increase of 1.4 percent compared to the same period last year. Internal sales, which adjust for the effects of currency translation and changes in product selling relationships, increased 1.8 percent. Second quarter net sales results are in line with company expectations and demonstrate two consecutive quarters of year-over-year revenue growth.

The company’s full earnings release will be issued on December 6, 2018, before the market opens.

The term “internal sales” used in this release represents net sales adjusted to exclude foreign currency impact and changes in product selling relationships. Foreign currency impact represents the difference in results that is attributable to fluctuations in currency exchange rates the company uses to convert results for all foreign entities where the functional currency is not the U.S. dollar. The company calculates the impact as the difference between the current period results translated using the current period currency exchange rates and using the comparable prior period’s currency exchange rates. The company believes the disclosure of net sales changes in constant currency provides useful supplementary information to investors in light of significant fluctuations in currency rates.
