Company Increases 2013 Earnings Guidance

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- PharMerica Corporation (NYS: PMC) , a national provider of pharmacy services, today reported its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2013.

Commenting on the Company's results, Greg Weishar, PharMerica Corporation's Chief Executive Officer, said, "This quarter's results continue the strong operating performance we realized last quarter. On a sequential quarter basis, the Company maintained its record setting first quarter 2013 quarterly gross margin percent of 19.2%. Adjusted EBITDA margin was equally strong at 7.8%; just shy of the 7.9% record we established last quarter. Moreover, on a year over year basis, Adjusted EBITDA increased 26% to $33.7 million and Adjusted EBITDA margin increased 200 basis points to 7.8%.

"Last quarter we indicated we were seeing improvement in sales and client retention. We see this trend continuing and expect further momentum as we head into the last half of the year. Excluding Golden Living and Kindred, bed losses have fallen significantly and the sales pipeline is growing and beginning to generate new sales. We believe our superior cost containment programs and pharmacy services are leading to improvement in client retention and firmly believe the Company is well positioned to aggressively compete in the long term care market segment.

"Amerita, the specialty home infusion company that we acquired in December 2012, saw impressive operating earnings growth on a sequential basis. Operating earnings improved 50% in the second quarter of 2013 versus the strong first quarter of 2013. Recall, Amerita was accretive to earnings last quarter and we expect continued growth as Amerita's prospects remain bright.

"Cash flow for the quarter was $26.6 million bringing our year to date cash flow to $74.3 million, an increase of 43% over the first half of 2012.

"Finally, based on the strong performance for the first six months of 2013, PharMerica now expects the following for the full year 2013:
