Beckman Coulter Announces Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2008 Results; Earnings Outlook Achieved on Strong Fundamentals
Date:2/9/2009

, and operating income margin increased 70 basis points to 15.2%. Adjustments to 2008 operating income included restructuring charges related to supply chain site consolidations.

Non-operating expense increased to $14.5 million from $10.3 million, principally due to higher interest on potential tax assessments. Adjusted net earnings were $82.3 million, or $1.29 per fully diluted share, partially benefiting from the accretion of the flow cytometry acquisition and a reduction in the tax rate from 33.0% to 24.4%. The decrease in the tax rate was principally due to the extension of the research and experimentation (R&E) tax credit and catch up to include current and prior year R&E tax credits.
