HERCULES, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 6, 2012) - Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (
Third-quarter reported revenues were $498.7 million, a decrease of 3.5% compared to $516.5 million reported for the third quarter of 2011. On a currency-neutral basis, quarterly revenues increased 3.6% compared to the same period last year. This growth includes $5.2 million of sales of droplet digital PCR products related to Bio-Rad's acquisition of QuantaLife in October 2011. Third-quarter gross margin was 54.8%, compared to 57.3% during the same quarter in 2011. Gross margin was impacted by approximately $2.2 million of amortization expense related to the Company's acquisition of QuantaLife, as well as a $3.8 million reserve associated with certain environmental issues.
Net income for third quarter was $42.4 million, or $1.48 per share on a fully diluted basis versus $45.9 million, or $1.61 per share reported for the same period last year. Bio-Rad's current quarter income results were favorably impacted by $8.5 million due to a reduction in the valuation of the contingent consideration associated with the QuantaLife acquisition.
Year-to-date revenues were $1.50 billion, a decrease of 1.8% compared to $1.52 billion reported in the first three quarters of 2011. Adjusting for the impact of currency, year-to-date revenue growth was 2.7%.
Year-to-date net income for the first three quarters of 2012 was $121.7 million, or $4.26 per share on a fully diluted basis compared to $119.0 million, or $4.18 per share reported during the same period in 2011.
"Performance in the third quarter reflects momentum and growth in many of our product areas, although macroeconomic challenges continue to have an impact on our performance," said Norman Schwartz, Bio-Rad President and Chief Executive Officer.
The Life Science segment net sales for the third quarter were $167.0 million, down 2.6% compared to the same period last year. On a currency-neutral basis, Life Science segment sales increased by 2.2% compared to the third quarter of 2011. Performance during the third quarter reflects strength across the segment's product lines, in particular, the Company's QX100™ Droplet Digital™ PCR system as well as shipments of process chromatography media. Strong sales in North America were offset by slowness in Europe and Japan. In September, Bio-Rad introduced the TC20™ automated cell counter, the next generation of the Company's TC10™ automated cell counter that provides accurate and reliable counts of live mammalian cells in 30 seconds. Also during the quarter, Bio-Rad acquired an automated benchtop cell sorting system from Propel Labs. First shipments of the S3™ Cell Sorter are anticipated in January 2013.
Reported net sales for the Clinical Diagnostics segment in the third quarter were $328.4 million, down 3.8% compared to the third quarter in 2011. On a currency-neutral basis, sales were up 4.5%. During the quarter, the Clinical Diagnostics segment had growth across most product lines most notably from quality controls, diabetes and immunohematology products, as well as the BioPlex® 2200 system. Strength in the Pacific Rim, the U.S., and Eastern Europe were offset by weakness in Western Europe.
