Arcadia sees smaller quarterly, fiscal-year losses

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Arcadia Resources Inc. saw its losses shrink in its most recent quarter as growing revenue from its pharmacy segment helped offset continued declines in its medical staffing business.

The Indianapolis-based company lost $19.2 million, or 11 cents per share, in the fourth fiscal quarter ended March 31, compared with a loss of $36.7 million, or 27 cents per share, in the same quarter a year ago.

Revenue dipped nearly 2 percent, to $25.5 million, compared with the year-ago period.

Revenue from Arcadia’s pharmacy division grew 103.5 percent, to $4.4 million, from the same quarter a year ago, and 7.7 percent from the previous quarter.

The company is trying to grow its DailyMed pharmaceutical service, which packages dosages of prescriptions into individual packets, to make it easier for patients on numerous medications to stick to their regimens.

“We achieved a number of important milestones this year, which set the foundation for continued growth for both our businesses and enhanced profitability in our DailyMed business,” Arcadia President and CEO Marvin R. Richardson said in a prepared statement.

Revenue for Arcadia’s medical staffing services fell 12 percent, to $20.7 million, compared with the same quarter a year ago.

For fiscal 2010, Arcadia lost $31.1 million, or 19 cents per share, compared with a loss of $46.5 million, or 35 cents per share, in fiscal 2009.

Revenue in fiscal 2010 dipped 2 percent, to $104.6 million, compared with the previous fiscal year.

Last month, Arcadia announced plans for a $3.9 million expansion of its north-side headquarters and pharmacy operations, which could create as many as 930 jobs by 2013.

Arcadia said it plans to grow its corporate presence and centralize its pharmacy-fulfillment operations here, hiring managers, pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, account managers and sales staff. It now has about 500 employees in Indiana and 4,000 nationwide who provide home health care services.

Shares of Arcadia are trading at 60 cents each.

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
