The drug wholesaler and medical supply manufacturer sold off its pharmaceutical technologies and services division last April to the Blackstone Group for $3.3 billion, which helped to nearly double annual profit.

Cardinal is the second-largest drug distributor in the United States, after McKesson, and is the largest provider of specialized nuclear medications used to treat cancer and heart disease.

In July, the company reached a settlement with the SEC that concluded an investigation into its financial reporting from 2000 to 2004, resulting in a $35 million fine.
