Item 7.01

Regulation FD Disclosure.

Henry Schein, Inc. (the “Company” or “Henry Schein”) is providing an update on the status of its order processing following the previously announced cybersecurity incident that affected a portion of its manufacturing and distribution businesses.

In the United States and Canada, all customer orders are being taken and fulfilled from all major distribution centers, with orders generally expected to ship within one or two business days. Orders for consumables and small equipment (including diagnostics, Rx products (other than controlled substances), and hazardous materials) from all customers can be placed through the Company’s field sales, telesales, and customer service teams. In addition, Henry Schein’s equipment service and installation teams have remained fully operational during this period.

Henry Schein’s European distribution businesses are also operational, generally taking and shipping orders. The Company’s distribution businesses in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Brazil are fully operational.

Henry Schein One, LLC, the Company’s practice management technology business, has not been impacted by the incident, and most of the Company’s manufacturing operations have been unaffected.

We plan to disclose important information about the recent cybersecurity incident through one or more of the following channels: the investor relations page of our website (www.investor.henryschein.com), which is currently accessible only directly through the indicated website address, Securities and Exchange Commission filings, public conference calls, webcasts, press releases, and social media channels that we have previously identified.

The information in this Item 7.01 is considered furnished to the Securities and Exchange Commission and is not deemed filed for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.
