Marketwired

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire -07/25/12)- Quidel Corporation (QDEL), a leading provider of rapid diagnostic testing solutions and cellular-based virology assays, announced today financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

  • Received CE Mark for Quidel Molecular Direct C. difficile Tox A/B assay.
  • Received Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) waiver from the United States FDA for the Sofia® Fluorescent Immunoassay Analyzer and the Sofia Influenza A+B Fluorescent Immunoassay.

Second Quarter 2012 Results

Total revenues increased 12% for the second quarter of 2012 to $30.9 million, as compared to $27.5 million in the second quarter of 2011, driven mainly by an increase in sales of infectious disease products.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2012 was $3.1 million, or $(0.09) per share, compared to net loss of $3.7 million, or $(0.11) per share, for the second quarter of 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding amortization of intangibles and stock compensation expense, net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $0.2 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $1.1 million, or $(0.03) per share, for the second quarter of 2011.

"Our financial results for the quarter were as expected. In addition, we made steady progress during the quarter with our product development programs, and remain confident in our ability to commercialize the Sofia product line," said Douglas Bryant, president and CEO of Quidel Corporation. "While it's very early, we did see an acceleration in Sofia placements throughout the quarter, driven by CLIA waiver and a larger U.S. sales force, which is encouraging."

Total revenues were $68.8 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 compared to $87.1 million for the same period in 2011.
