Vision 2028 Financial Goals
The Owens & Minor leadership team will provide long-range financial targets that align with the Company's strategic initiatives, capital deployment objectives, and commitment to driving shareholder value. The Company’s 2028 financial targets include:
- Revenue exceeding $12 billion
- Adjusted EBITDA exceeding $750 million
- Adjusted EPS to exceed $3.50 with a CAGR of more than 20%
- Cumulative free cash flow between 2024-2028 of more than $1.3 billion
Although the Company does provide targets for adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EPS and free cash flow (which are non-GAAP financial measures), it is not able to forecast the most directly comparable measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP without unreasonable effort. Certain elements of the composition of the GAAP amounts are not predictable, making it impracticable for the Company to forecast. Such elements include, but are not limited to, restructuring and acquisition charges, which could have a significant and unpredictable impact on our GAAP results. As a result, no GAAP targets or reconciliation of the Company’s adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EPS or free cash flow targets are provided. The targets are based on certain assumptions, including those outlined in the presentation for the 2023 Investor Day being furnished today with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), and are subject to the risk factors discussed in the Company’s filings with the SEC.
Investor Day Webcast Information
Investors and other interested parties can watch the webcast of the event, which will begin at 8:30 a.m. ET today, on the Company's investor relations website. The event will be recorded and available for replay approximately two hours after its conclusion.
