Sigma-Aldrich Seeks Acquisitions

Sigma-Aldrich Corporation (NasdaqGS:SIAL) seeks acquisitions. "I think as Quintin and others have said before, we are a very ROIC-driven company, and that is one of the main things we look at when we evaluate acquisitions or any type of investment. We have to, obviously, exceed our cost of capital. We have to look at how in the long run or short run can that be added to our ROIC, which is near 20% right now. So we are looking at all investments and how that can affect us on the ROIC front. From a cash standpoint, yes, we do have a lot of cash. We do have most of our cash, if not all is outside of the US. We do look for strategies to bring back all that cash to the US, but we utilized our cash in the US on a prudent basis, as we always have. This year is the 39th consecutive year we've increased our dividend, so we pay a dividend, which is rare for our space. We continue to buy back shares, usually about 1.5 million a year. It has been fairly consistent the past four or five years. So we do spend some money on the dividend and our share repurchases. Our capital expense this year is expected to be around $130 million or so, so we like to build from within. And that is a real model that we have exercised over the years since we like to grow organically and build our facilities out, make sure they are safe for all of our employees, and we provide safe products," said Mike Hollenkamp, Sigma-Aldrich Corporation - Vice President & Treasurer.
