MDS Reports Second Quarter 2009 Financial Results
Date:6/11/2009

the prior-year period with foreign exchange negatively impacting revenue by $9 million. In the second quarter, Late Stage declines were primarily due to lower demand in Central Labs. In Early Stage, declines were largely driven by lower revenues in bioanalytical services.

MDS Pharma Services recorded new business wins totaling $114 million, a sequential increase of 10%, compared with new business wins in the first quarter, but down 31% compared with $165 million of new business wins last year.
