Patterson Medical, the rehabilitation supply and equipment unit of

Patterson Companies, Inc. (Nasdaq: PDCO) today announced the acquisition

of the rehabilitation businesses of DCC Healthcare, a division of DCC

plc (Irish Stock Exchange: DCC.I), a business support services group

headquartered in Dublin, Ireland. Terms of the all-cash transaction were

not disclosed.

The acquired DCC businesses—Days Healthcare, Physiomed and Ausmedic—rank

among the leaders in their respective overseas markets, providing

assistive living products and rehabilitation equipment and supplies to

hospitals, physical and occupational therapists, long-term care

facilities, dealers and consumers in the U.K., continental Europe,

Australia, New Zealand and other international markets.

Days, Physiomed and Ausmedic posted combined sales of approximately $70

million for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2010, while Patterson

Medical reported sales of $426 million for the year ended April 24,

2010. The acquisition is expected to have a neutral impact on

Patterson’s consolidated earnings in fiscal 2011 and then be accretive

starting in its second year as part of the company.

David P. Sproat, president of Patterson Medical, commented: “This

strategic acquisition significantly strengthens the market presence and

geographic reach of our Homecraft Rolyan unit in the U.K. In addition to

expanding Homecraft’s position in the U.K.’s physical and occupational

therapy markets, this transaction brings a stable of trusted and

established brand names that encompass an extensive range of

rehabilitation and assistive living products. This acquisition also

increases HomeCraft’s international coverage, including strong positions

in the Australia and New Zealand rehabilitation markets, where we

previously had a limited presence. Also part of this transaction is a

sourcing team in China.”

He added: “Consolidating DCC’s rehabilitation businesses into Homecraft

Rolyan will enable us to more fully leverage our existing U.K. capacity,

capture significant synergies among our operating units and provide

greater opportunities for the employees of Days Healthcare, Physiomed

and Ausmedic. In all, this acquisition will strengthen our presence in

the large and growing global rehabilitation market, making us believe

this transaction should spur Patterson Medical’s profitable growth.”
