    SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May. 14, 2012-- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today reported revenues of $1.73 billion for the second fiscal quarter ended April 30, 2012, 3 percent above one year ago. Second-quarter GAAP net income was $255 million, or $0.72 per share. Last year’s second-quarter GAAP net income was $200 million, or $0.56 per share.

    During the second quarter, Agilent had intangible amortization of $26 million, transformational charges of $8 million, and acquisition and integration costs of $6 million. The company also recognized a tax benefit of $11 million. Excluding these items and $9 million of other net benefits, Agilent reported second-quarter adjusted net income of $275 million, or $0.78 per share (1).

    Bill Sullivan, Agilent president and CEO, said, “Our second-quarter performance demonstrated our ability to deliver strong results despite a challenging economic climate.”

    Electronic Measurement second-quarter revenues were up 5 percent over the prior year. Orders were up 13 percent from the same period last year. Growth was driven by wireless manufacturing.

    Chemical Analysis revenues were 2 percent above one year ago. Orders were up 7 percent. Growth continued in key end markets, including petrochemical and food.

    Life Sciences revenues grew 1 percent over last year, while orders declined 1 percent year over year. Solid performance in pharma was offset by weakness in academia and government.
