    5,0835,29811,2517,399"We are very pleased with the record fourth quarter performance and what we accomplished in 2010," said Patrick J. Balthrop, president and chief executive officer of Luminex. "Despite the tough year-over-year comparison due to strong H1N1-related demand for xTAG RVP in 2009, we delivered 17% consolidated annual revenue growth. Our performance reflects increasing adoption of our proprietary technology due to the power of multiplexing, the commitment of our partners and the dedication of our employees. We are particularly pleased with the performance of our proprietary consumable and royalty revenue streams, which grew 41% and 22%, respectively, in 2010. We are pleased with the successful launch of our newest multiplexing analyzer, MAGPIX, and anticipate it will make a strong contribution to our overall capital equipment sales in the future.  

    "Our solid performance generated nearly $10 million in operating cashflow in the quarter, adding to an already strong balance sheet, and enhancing the Company's ability to respond to strategic opportunities," continued Balthrop. "Looking at 2011 and beyond, we are excited about the broad growth opportunities in which Luminex, through its solid product pipeline and strong partnership model, can further develop its market leadership position."

    FINANCIAL OUTLOOK AND GUIDANCEThe Company intends to provide annual revenue guidance, to be updated, as appropriate, at each quarterly reporting period. Guidance for fiscal 2011 is as follows:

  • The Company expects full year 2011 revenue to be between $163 million and $170 million.  The full year figures represent an increase of between 15 percent and 20 percent over reported 2010 revenue.
