Techne Corporation Releases Unaudited Second Quarter Results for Fiscal Year 2009
Date:2/3/2009

mp;D Systems' Biotechnology Division, R&D Systems China and BiosPacific, were $40.3 million and $86.5 million for the quarter and six months ended December 31, 2008, increases of 3.0% and 10.8%, respectively, from the comparable prior-year periods. North American biotechnology sales to industrial and academic customers grew at less than 2% during the second quarter of fiscal 2009. The Company attributes the lower second quarter sales growth rate to customer caution in a time of economic uncertainty.

R&D Europe's net sales for the quarter and six months ended December 31, 2008 were $17.3 million and $36.2 million, a decrease of 9.2% and an increase of 5.1%, respectively, from the same prior-year periods. R&D Europe's net sales increased 8.6% for the quarter and 13.0% for the six months ended December 31, 2008 when measured at currency rates in effect in the comparable prior-year periods.

Hematology net sales for the quarter and six months ended December 31, 2008 were $4.3 million and $8.5 million, increases of 7.2% and 11.5%, respectively, compared to the quarter and six months ended December 31, 2007.

Consolidated gross margins were 78.3% and 79.8% for the quarter and six months ended December 31, 2008 respectively, compared to 79.5% and 79.3% for the quarter and six months ended December 31, 2007. The decrease in gross margins in the second quarter was primarily caused by lower gross margins in Europe resulting from unfavorable exchange rates.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter and six months ended December 31, 2008 decreased $942,000 (8.9%) and $192,000 (1.0%), respectively from the quarter and six months ended December 31, 2007. The decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses from the comparable prior-year periods were the result of the following (in thousands):
