Home Health Depot acquires Arcadia subsidiary

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indianapolis-based Home Health Depot Inc. said on Thursday it has acquired the Home Health Care Products LLC subsidiary of Arcadia Resources Inc., also headquartered here.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Home Health Care Products markets and sells home health related items via direct mail and online. They include mobility tools, respiratory devices, bathroom safety and home-modification products, as well as daily living aids.

“As more and more consumers opt to purchase home medical equipment—which enables them to stay active, independent and in their own home—via the Internet, this acquisition extends our tradition of providing the highest customer care and responsiveness to customers around the country,” Home Health Depot President Nate Feltman said in a prepared statement.
 
Feltman joined the company as president in August, following a stint at the Baker & Daniels LLP law firm. He served as the state’s commerce secretary from 2007 to 2008.

Home Health Depot was founded in 1998 and purchased by CEO David Hartley in 2004. It has grown from a single office in Greenwood to 12 locations in Indiana and Illinois—increasing annual revenue from $300,000 to more than $6.7 million. The company has more than 100 employees.

Publicly traded Arcadia provides pharmacy and home health care staffing services. Its flagship pharmacy product is DailyMed, which packages dosages of prescription medicines into individual packets labeled with the time of day they are to be taken.

In the year ended March 31, Arcadia lost $31.1 million, or 19 cents per diluted share, on revenue of $103.6 million. It has 65 locations in 18 states.

  1. The $104K to CRC would go toward debts service on $486M of existing debt they already have from other things outside this project. Keystone buys the bonds for 3.8M from CRC, and CRC in turn pays for the parking and site work, and some time later CRC buys them back (with interest) from the projected annual property tax revenue from the entire TIF district (est. $415K / yr. from just this property, plus more from all the other property in the TIF district), which in theory would be about a 10-year term, give-or-take. CRC is basically betting on the future, that property values will increase, driving up the tax revenue to the limit of the annual increase cap on commercial property (I think that's 3%). It should be noted that Keystone can't print money (unlike the Federal Treasury) so commercial property tax can only come from consumers, in this case the apartment renters and consumers of the goods and services offered by the ground floor retailers, and employees in the form of lower non-mandatory compensation items, such as bonuses, benefits, 401K match, etc.

  2. $3B would hurt Lilly's bottom line if there were no insurance or Indemnity Agreement, but there is no way that large an award will be upheld on appeal. What's surprising is that the trial judge refused to reduce it. She must have thought there was evidence of a flagrant, unconscionable coverup and wanted to send a message.

  3. As a self-employed individual, I always saw outrageous price increases every year in a health insurance plan with preexisting condition costs -- something most employed groups never had to worry about. With spouse, I saw ALL Indiana "free market answer" plans' premiums raise 25%-45% each year.

  4. It's not who you chose to build it's how they build it. Architects and engineers decide how and what to use to build. builders just do the work. Architects & engineers still think the tarp over the escalators out at airport will hold for third time when it snows, ice storms.
