Conclusion

PerkinElmer exited the second quarter on a strong note, wherein both earnings and revenues beat their respective consensus mark. The company witnessed robust core segmental performance in the quarter under review. Expansion in both gross and operating margins instills optimism.

Interestingly, the company inked a deal to acquire BioLegend — a leading manufacturer of innovative antibodies and research agents — for an amount of $5.25 billion. Per management, the company exhibited encouraging performance throughout the first half of 2021 and is well-positioned to execute on both its short and long-term goals.
