“I am pleased with Magellan's strong second quarter performance and the strides we made in our growth initiatives”
As of June 30, 2013, the company had unrestricted cash and investments of $281.9 million.
"I am pleased with Magellan's strong second quarter performance and the strides we made in our growth initiatives," said Barry M. Smith, chief executive officer. "This is a time of transformation at Magellan, as we build on the solid foundation developed over the past several years and evolve into a business with a sharp focus on leveraging our unique strengths, particularly with regard to managing special populations. We have developed our Magellan Complete Care and Magellan Pharmacy Solutions initiatives to address opportunities that we see in the marketplace and to be our primary growth engines for the future.
"Our core behavioral health, radiology and pharmacy businesses continue to perform well and are making significant contributions to our results. They have fueled our past growth and, going forward, will provide the clinical capabilities to holistically manage enrollees in our Magellan Complete Care programs. For example, our new health plan, Magellan Complete Care of Florida, which began enrolling members during the quarter, leverages the assets of our entire product portfolio. We are moving decisively to simplify and retool our offerings, sharpen our business focus and position the company for continued growth."
Share Repurchase Program
The Board of Directors has approved a $100 million increase to the current $200 million share repurchase authorization and extended it for two years until October 25, 2015. The shares may be purchased from time to time on the open market, under 10b5-1 plans, or in privately negotiated transactions. There are a number of factors that affect the timing and pace of purchases, such as stock price, projected capital needs, M&A prospects and determination of open and closed trading windows.
"We had strong results this quarter and are maintaining our full-year outlook for revenue, net income, segment profit and EPS," said Jonathan N. Rubin, chief financial officer. "The increased share repurchase authorization reflects our Board of Directors' confidence in our growth strategy, cash flow and financial capacity. We are committed to maximizing long-term shareholder value through both share repurchases and continued investment in our growth initiatives."
