PerkinElmer: Focusing, Appealing

Summary PerkinElmer has sold a substantial business in recent times, in order to fully focus on life science and diagnostic activities. The deal looks a bit cheap but is likely okay in the long run. Valuations have come down, despite a resilient performance, creating a compelling risk-reward for the pro forma pure play. Towards the end of February, I concluded that there was a solid diagnosis for PerkinElmer (PKI) as it has seen a real boom following the pandemic. The company has seen strong "organic" performance, as I saw no reason to alter that stance. Some Background PerkinElmer is, or better said was, a discovery and analytics business under a single roof, with revenues generated from life science, food, environment and industrial end markets. Products to think of include imaging, detection, chromatographs, atomic spectroscopy and others, combined generating $3 billion in sales in 2019, of course, ahead of the pandemic. With shares trading at $100 ahead of the pandemic, while earnings came in around $4 per share, the company traded at a premium of 25 times multiple, as the business has seen an explosion in the diagnostics business following the outbreak of the pandemic. With shares trading at $120 in March 2021, I become a shareholder as the company has seen very strong momentum throughout 2020 and was actively deploying the excess earnings reported in the meantime to add to the production portfolio through bolt-on dealmaking. The company even announced a huge deal in July 2021, with the $5.25 billion purchase of BioLegend to add life science antibodies and reagents capabilities, unfortunately at a steep multiple of 14 times revenues of $380 million. With myself being a bit skeptical on the deal and shares having risen to $170 in a short period of time, I cut out of half my position, only to see shares trade in a $170-$200 range for the remainder of the year. In February, the company posted fourth quarter revenues of $1.36 billion on which adjusted earnings of $2.56 per share were reported, including an $80 million quarterly revenue contribution from BioLegend. The company issued a 2022 guidance calling for sales at $4.4 billion, or north thereof, on which earnings are seen at $6.80-$7.00 per share. This outlook excluded a substantial pandemic "contribution" as this compares to an $8 billion revenue number in 2021 on which earnings over $11 per share were reported. Believing realistic and non-Covid-19 earnings power has improved to $7 per share, the company traded at 26 times earnings, albeit that the company has taken on some $4.4 billion in debt with the BioLegend deal, a substantial amount. Despite the fact that the company was in a better position than July 2021, it was too early to add to my remaining long position at the time. Re-Rating After voicing a constructive yet cautious stance in February of this year, shares have gradually fallen to $133 at the moment of writing, down some 20% ever since, amidst tough market conditions as well. In May, Perkin announced first quarter sales at $1.26 billion, down in the low-single digits compared to the year before, a decent result by all means with adjusted earnings of $2.41 per share looking quite solid, with net debt coming down to $4.2 billion. The company hiked the full year guidance to sales of around $4.6 billion at the midpoint of the guidance, seeing earnings around $7.30 per share. In August, Perkin announced a substantial deal as it has reached a deal to sell its applied, food and enterprise service business to New Mountain Capital in a $2.45 billion deal, of which a $2.30 billion upfront cash component is part of the deal. Note that after-tax upfront cash proceeds are pegged at just $1.9 billion to thereby cut net debt to $2.5 billion. The deal involves the sale of $1.3 billion in revenues, a substantial amount by all means, with EBITDA margins posted in the mid-teens, far lower than the overall margins posted by the business. Assuming 15% EBITDA margins, some $200 million in EBITDA will leave the door, as the multiples look fair, perhaps a bit cheap following tax leakage. The deal will furthermore sharpen the focus, with Perkin becoming a pure play on a life science and diagnostics company.
