Hill-Rom Provides Update On Puerto Rico Facility
Date:10/11/2017

CHICAGO, Oct. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hill-Rom Holdings, Inc. ("Hill-Rom") (NYSE: HRC), today provided an update on its Aspen Surgical facility in Las Piedras, Puerto Rico, where the company manufactures Bard-Parker® surgical scalpels and blades.

Following a comprehensive onsite assessment, the company confirmed that the facility sustained minor structural damage, temporary loss of power and minimal water damage due to Hurricane Maria. Repairs have been completed, manufacturing operations have resumed, and the company expects to return to full production capacity in the coming weeks while managing inventory levels across its global distribution network to limit disruption in the supply of products to customers.

While Hill-Rom works to return Las Piedras to full operational capacity, substantial challenges exist related to the island's power grid, communication network and overall infrastructure. The company's primary focus continues to be supporting its employees, their families, and others affected by Hurricane Maria. Hill-Rom employs approximately 170 people in Puerto Rico, an extraordinary team of dedicated employees who helped return the facility to operational status despite significant personal hardship.

Aspen Surgical scalpels and blades account for approximately $60 million of Hill-Rom's annual revenue. Hill-Rom does not expect a material financial impact related to the recent hurricanes, and plans to provide further information when it reports fourth quarter and full-year 2017 earnings on November 3, 2017.
