    Animal Health International Inc. is a leading distributor of animal health products in the United States and Canada. The company distributes more than 40,000 products sourced from over 1,500 manufacturers to over 71,000 customers. These customers include veterinarians, animal health product retailers and production animal operators.

    The company today reported its financial results for its second fiscal quarter, which ended December 31, 2010. Net sales increased 16.3% to $198.2 million, compared to $170.5 million for the same period last year. The increase in sales was attributed to the improving beef market as well as continued growth in the company’s veterinary business.

    Net income at Animal Health International increased 52.5% to $1.9 million or $0.07 per share. This compares to $1.2 million, or $0.05 per share, in last year’s second fiscal quarter. Excluding a one-time charge, net income would have shown an 87.1% increase to $2.2 million, or $0.09 a share.

    For the fiscal year to date, the numbers are also very positive. Net sales were up 12.9% to $374.7 million versus $331.8 million for the same period a year ago. Net income came in at $1.3 million, or $0.05 a share, versus last year’s $500,000, or $0.02 a share. Without the one-time charge, net income would have been $1.8 million, or $0.07 a share.

    Animal Health’s adjusted EBITDA for the first half of the fiscal year increased 16.7%, or $1.6 million, to $11.2 million, compared to $9.6 million in the same period last year. For the full fiscal year, the company’s management says that the adjusted EBITDA will be in the range of $25-$27 million.
