Baron Funds Comments on BioScrip Inc. - Feb 26, 2014

BioScrip, Inc. (BIOS), an operator of infusion therapy pharmacies, fell 16.5% for the Fund in the quarter. While the company continues to execute its strategy of consolidating the infusion services industry, it stumbled after a non-core legacy business performed worse than expected. While the miscue is not dire for the company, it hurt management's credibility after it had to reset guidance. We continue to believe there is substantial value and growth in the core infusion business, and that this has been validated by CVS's purchase in December of the number two player in the space, Coram, for a very high multiple of cash flow.
