Thermo Fisher Scientific Reports Record 2008 First Quarter Revenues and Operating Performance
Date:4/24/2008

-- Received FDA clearance for new MRSA diagnostic test to protect hospital

patients

-- First Fisher Scientific Chinese-language catalog introduced to serve

those markets

"We delivered excellent financial performance in the quarter, with a 25% increase in adjusted EPS and 140 basis points of adjusted operating margin expansion even though our growth was somewhat affected by having fewer days in the quarter," said Marijn E. Dekkers, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific. "Recognizing that there is economic uncertainty in the world today, we remain confident that our balanced mix of markets, geographies, products and services puts us in a strong position to deliver on our financial goals for 2008.

"We announced a number of new developments in the quarter that fortify our position as the world leader in serving science. Under our Thermo Scientific brand, we launched exciting new instrumentation that simplifies sophisticated analytical technologies so non-experts can use them for a broader range of applications. We also introduced a new siRNA platform that allows life sciences researchers to study more cell types in their quest to develop better treatments for disease. In addition, our new MRSA diagnostic test is designed to make it easier for doctors to screen patients for staph infection when they are admitted to the hospital. Finally, we published our first Fisher Scientific catalog in Chinese to make our broad portfolio of laboratory supplies available to more customers in that growing market."

Mr. Dekkers added, "Primarily as a result of more favorable currency translation, we are raising our revenue guidance for the year and now expect to report full year 2008 revenues in the range of $10.6 to $10.7 billion, resulting in 9 to 10% growth over 2007. The revenue increase also leads us to raise our adjusted EPS guidance for 2008 by $0.02, to a range of $3.07 to $3.17. This would result in 1
