Patterson CEO says committed to help industry adoption of 'digital dentistry'

Patterson (PDCO) CEO Scott Anderson said on the company's earnings conference call that the executive teams of both Patterson and Sirona (XRAY), for years, have been very consistent in their message that there would be a day where Patterson would need to expand the portfolio of products it sells to meet the needs of its customers. Also, Sirona will want to access more of the market through the potential foe expanded distribution, Anderson said. Today's announcement of the change in their relationship is "predicated on our mutual confidence and I would say strong confidence in our ability to compete in the marketplace," added Anderson. The news also reflects the "commitment of both companies of helping the profession accelerate the adoption of digital dentistry," he stated.

Amazon.com should partner with Patterson Companies, says Northcoast
Northcoast said Amazon.com (AMZN) has a strong interest in entering the dental market and has spent time and resources attempting to build relationships with manufacturers and distributors to gain product procurement, which so far has been unsuccessful. The firm's analyst said Patterson (PDCO) is aggressively trying to reinvent how dental distribution will occur in the future and is building a new IT backbone, making huge investments in technical service. Northcoast said Patterson is on a path to disrupt the industry and could accelerate this effort with a partnership with Amazon. The firm continues to view Patterson as undervalued, with out without Amazon, and recommends investors build positions at this time.

Baird expects Amazon.com distribution announcement with Patterson
Following industry conversions, Baird analyst Jeff Johnson expects Patterson Companies (PDCO) to announce an Amazon.com (AMZN) distribution agreement tomorrow. What the analyst hadnt considered and is now hearing is that Amazon could fulfill orders placed through Patterson's order portal, lowering Patterson's fulfillment costs and given the company breathing room as it pursues DSO deals. Johnson rates Patterson a Neutral with a $48 price target.

Patterson cancellation a positive for Dentsply, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Matt O'Brien believes Patterson Companies (PDCO) cancelling its exclusive selling agreement with legacy Sirona products beyond September 2017 as positive for Dentsply Sirona (XRAY). The move is unsurprising given the changing industry dynamics, O'Brien tells investors in a research note. He points out that the initial exclusive agreement was established in 1998. Assuming Henry Schein (HSIC) starts selling legacy Sirona equipment, the cancellation is a positive for Dentsply as this will ultimately allow the company to increase cross-selling opportunities with those customers, O'Brien argues. He's been calling for a cancellation of the exclusive selling agreement with Patterson saying Dentsply has been adamant about realizing sales synergies through increased cross-selling opportunities. The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on Dentsply with a $70 price target. Patterson in pre-market trading is down 17% to $39.20 after reporting a decline in North American dental consumables sales of 2.5%. Dentsply shares are down 2% to $58.40.

Dentsply Sirona upgraded on growth, valuation at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley upgraded Denstply Sirona to Overweight from Equal Weight and raised its price target to $69 from $65. Analyst Steve Beuchaw said Densply's relative valuation weakness positions the company for better performance despite negative dental market sentiment. He expects Dentsply's organic growth to accelerate in 2017 driven by digital dentistry adoption, a focus on commercial headcount, easing digital equipment comps, and revenue synergies. Beauchaw expects the company's double digit free cash flow growth potential to improve investor sentiment.
