However, a tough competitive landscape and currency headwinds continue to pose threats to STERIS. Moreover, customer consolidation is a concern for the company. On a brighter note, we are encouraged by the favorable underlying market trends along with STERIS'  new product and service offerings. The company's strong organic growth across Healthcare Products, Healthcare Specialty Services, Applied Sterilization Technologies and Life Sciences segments also buoys optimism.  Further, growth in free cash flow reserve is indicative of the company’s cash balance strength. The company has also made certain divestments and organizational changes, which are expected to better suit its operations." (10/9/2018)
