HERCULES, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2013) - Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (
Third-quarter reported revenues were $505.1 million, an increase of 1.3% compared to $498.7 million reported for the third quarter of 2012. These results include $5.5 million of sales resulting from the Company's acquisition of AbD Serotec in January 2013. On a currency-neutral basis, quarterly revenues increased 1.8% compared to the same period last year. Third-quarter gross margin was 56.3%, compared to 54.9% during the same quarter in 2012.
The Company recorded a net loss for the third quarter of ($7.1) million, or ($0.25) per share on a fully diluted basis versus net income of $42.6 million, or $1.49 per share reported for the same period last year. These results include interest expense of $15.6 million associated with our decision to redeem certain bonds in the third quarter of 2013 as well as the recording of an accrued expense of $20 million in connection with the Company's initial efforts to resolve the previously disclosed investigation of the Company in connection with the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
Year-to-date revenues were $1.53 billion, an increase of 2.3% compared to $1.50 billion reported in the first three quarters of 2012. Adjusting for the impact of currency, year-to-date revenue growth was 3.1%.
Year-to-date net income for the first three quarters of 2013 was $47.7 million, or $1.65 per share on a fully diluted basis compared to $122.2 million, or $4.27 per share reported during the same period in 2012.
In addition to the impact of the bond redemption and legal accrual mentioned above, the lower net income in the third quarter and year-to-date of 2013, when compared to the third quarter and year-to-date of 2012, was the result of higher SG&A expense, primarily due to employee expenses associated with acquisitions; expenses associated with the enterprise resource planning (ERP) implementation; as well as certain events that occurred during the first three quarters of 2012 that favorably impacted results in 2012 including reductions in the valuation of the contingent consideration associated with the QuantaLife acquisition of $8.5 million in the third quarter of 2012 and $16.0 million in the nine months ended September 30, 2012.
"As anticipated, third-quarter results continued the modest pace of growth set in the first half of the year," said Norman Schwartz, Bio-Rad President and Chief Executive Officer. "We continued to see a softness in some of our markets this quarter, which impacted our results. Although we expect more of the same for the rest of 2013, we remain focused on new products and investments in our future."
The Life Science segment net sales for the third quarter were $162.9 million, down 2.5% compared to the same period last year. On a currency-neutral basis, Life Science segment sales decreased by 1.2% compared to the third quarter of 2012. Third-quarter 2013 results reflected continued slowness in the research spending environment. Performance of the Life Science segment was positively impacted by sales of antibodies and reagents from the Company's acquisition of AbD Serotec, as well as sales of biochromatography and cell sorting instruments.
Reported net sales for the Clinical Diagnostics segment in the third quarter were $338.8 million, an increase of 3.2% compared to the third quarter in 2012 on both a reported and currency-neutral basis. During the quarter, the Clinical Diagnostics segment had growth across most product lines most notably from quality controls, diabetes, and autoimmune products. Strength in China and Latin America markets was offset by weakness of sales in Western Europe.
