Luminex Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2014 results

AUSTIN, Texas, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Luminex Corporation (NASDAQ: LMNX) today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014. Financial and operating highlights include the following:

  • Consolidated second quarter revenues of $55.6 million, a 2 percent increase over the second quarter of 2013.
  • Second quarter system sales of $8.3 million, a 9 percent increase over the second quarter of 2013. 
  • Second quarter shipments of 268 multiplexing analyzers, which included 148 LX systems, 96 MAGPIX systems, and 24 FLEXMAP 3D Systems.
  • Second quarter assay revenue of $19.9 million. Infectious disease assay sales comprised approximately 67 percent of total assay sales, with genetic testing assays representing 33 percent.
  • Second quarter royalty revenue of $9.5 million, a 10 percent increase over the second quarter of 2013.
  • GAAP net income for the second quarter was $4.7 million, or $0.11 per diluted share. This compares to a GAAP net income of $3.7 million, or $0.09 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2013. 
  • Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter was $8.5 million or $0.20 per diluted share. This compares to non-GAAP net income of $7.1 million, or $0.17 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2013. (see Non-GAAP reconciliation)
  • "We delivered another quarter of strong financial performance, driven by growth across systems, consumables, and royalty revenue. We also were pleased with the relative performance of our assay business when compared with the same quarter in 2013 which included substantial non-recurring assay revenue," said Patrick J. Balthrop, president and chief executive officer of Luminex. "As we proceed into the second half of 2014, we are focused on execution and continuing the momentum that we have built during the first two quarters."

    "Our R&D team continues to achieve key development milestones with our pipeline products, including ARIES, our sample-to-answer real-time PCR instrument, and our new multiplexing technology, NxTAG. As we engage with customers during the development process, the enthusiastic response we have received from laboratories continues to encourage us that these pipeline products will be highly successful in the marketplace, strategically positioning Luminex for sustainable growth in the near future."

    42,12542,30741,86342,404The Company makes reference in this release to "non-GAAP operating income" and "non-GAAP net income" which excludes stock-based compensation expense, amortization of acquired intangible assets and the impact of costs associated with legal proceedings, which are unpredictable and can vary significantly from period to period, including costs associated with the ENZO Life Sciences, Inc. and Irori Technologies, Inc. complaints, discussed in the Legal Proceedings section of our previously filed 10-Ks and 10-Qs and certain other recurring and non-recurring expenses.  The Company believes that excluding these items and their related tax effects from its financial results reflects operating results that are more indicative of the Company's ongoing operating performance while improving comparability to prior periods, and, as such may provide investors with an enhanced understanding of the Company's past financial performance and prospects for the future. In addition, the Company's management uses such non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate and assess its core operations and to make ongoing operating decisions.  This information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for income from operations, net income, net income per share or expense information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
