Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "HRC announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Voalte (private) for $180M up front and up to $15M in commercial-based milestones. HRC believes it can absorb the dilutive impact of the deal in FY19, expects the transaction to close in F3Q19, and estimates the deal to become increasingly accretive beginning in FY20. Voalte offers smartphone and web-based applications that enable caregivers to communicate securely and provides managers data analytics tools, respectively. The Voalte deal seems to make financial (accretive to revenue growth and margins) and strategic (further diversifies HRC away from capital equipment sales and allows for cross-selling opportunities in its care communications business) sense, in our view, and we reiterate our Buy rating." (3/11/2019) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Hill-Rom exited the first quarter of fiscal 2019 on a strong note. The company saw a solid year-over-year increase in revenues on robust domestic growth, driven by sturdy performance by Patient Support Systems and Front Line Care. Hill-Rom has recorded around $100 million in new product revenues in the reported quarter. We are also upbeat about Hill-Rom’s integration of EarlySense’s continuous contact-free heart rate and respiratory rate sensing and analytics technology with its Centrella Smart+ bed platform in the reported quarter. Also, the tie-up with Microsoft to make advanced, relevant and actionable point-of-care data and solutions buoys optimism. Overall, Hill-Rom has outperformed the market at large in the past six months. However, foreign exchange and a tough competitive landscape remain headwinds. Also, Hill-Rom’s global revenues declined in the quarter." (3/1/2019) Has Hill-Rom been receiving favorable news coverage?
