CR Bard Seeks Acquisitions

CR Bard Inc. (NYSE:BCR) is seeking acquisitions. Chris Holland, Chief Financial Officer of CR Bard, said, "We've got a small product portfolio that will continue to expand both through indications and additional acquisitions probably." Bard added, "We would have to really dramatically increase the dividend, and the last thing we don't want to be able to do is not pursue a large acquisition because we've backed ourselves in a corner. So I think everybody gets that. I think we do have the ability, because of the cash flow-generating nature of the business, to do both of those things in combination in the ordinary course: continue to buy back stock at a healthy rate over time and make acquisitions of reasonable size. We can do both of those and we will continue to look to do both of those."
