In the news release, Life Technologies Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results, issued 01-Nov-2012 by Life Technologies Corporation over PR Newswire, we are advised by the company that on November 1, 2012 the Company received an unfavorable verdict in its litigation with Enzo Biochem. The Company does not expect this verdict to have a material impact on its business going forward as this intellectual property was held by Enzo Biochem during the period 1998-2004 and the patent expired in 2004. Although the Company strongly disagrees with the verdict and intends to vigorously challenge it in the trial court and on appeal, the Company has recorded a charge of $48.5 million related to the lawsuit in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. As a result, the Company's previously reported third quarter 2012 GAAP diluted earnings per share will decrease $0.18 per share from $0.55 per share to $0.37 per share. The verdict did not impact the non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. The Company has provided revised financial statements and reconciliations between GAAP and Non-GAAP Net Income. The complete, corrected release follows:

Life Technologies Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

Revenue of $911 million

GAAP earnings per share (EPS) of $0.37, or $0.92 on a non-GAAP basis

Free Cash Flow of $177 million

CARLSBAD, Calif., Nov. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announced results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2012. Revenue for the third quarter was $911 million, a decrease of 1.9 percent over the $929 million reported for the third quarter of 2011.

"Our third quarter performance came in stronger than our expectations driven by a significant increase in Ion Torrent platform sales, as well as increased sales in our research consumables and forensics businesses," said Gregory T. Lucier, chairman and chief executive officer of Life Technologies. "During the quarter, we made solid progress in expanding our operations and footprint in high growth and emerging markets, including entering into strategic partnerships for companion diagnostics, building the foundation for our Medical Sciences business and acquiring distributors in China and Chile. We achieved important milestones with several highly anticipated launches including the Ion Proton System, a platform whose speed, ease of use and affordability will democratize genome sequencing, and our Pervenio Lung RS test service, the first of its kind molecular test to identify early-stage lung cancer patients who are at high risk of reoccurrence following surgery."

"We continue to demonstrate our commitment to returning capital to shareholders by repurchasing an additional $208 million worth of shares in the third quarter, bringing our year-to-date total to $535 million. Based on our performance year-to-date and end market assumptions, we are tightening the full year guidance range by increasing the bottom end by $0.05 and are now expecting non-GAAP earnings per share of $3.95 to $4.00."

Life Technologies reported current quarter results compared to the quarter ended September 30, 2011. Results are non-GAAP unless indicated otherwise. A full reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures to GAAP can be found in the tables of today's press release.

Analysis of Third Quarter 2012 Results

  • Third quarter revenue decreased 1.9 percent over the prior year. Revenue growth without the impact from currency was 1.4 percent.
  • Gross margin in the third quarter was 65.6 percent, approximately 50 basis points lower than the same period of the prior year primarily driven by unfavorable currency rates.
  • Operating margin was 28.0 percent in the third quarter, approximately 140 basis points lower than the same period of the prior year. Operating margin contraction was primarily due to unfavorable currency rates and increased investments in Greater China and Medical Sciences.
  • Third quarter tax rate was 27.3 percent.
  • Third quarter EPS was $0.92.
  • Diluted weighted shares outstanding were 177.3 million in the third quarter, a decrease of 9.6 million shares over the prior year. The decrease was a result of the continuation of the company's share repurchase program, partially offset by shares issued for employee stock plans. The company repurchased $208 million or 4.4 million shares in the third quarter.
  • Cash flow from operating activities for the third quarter was $197 million. Third quarter capital expenditures were $20 million, resulting in free cash flow of $177 million. The company ended the quarter with $299 million in cash and short-term investments.

Business Group Highlights

  • Research Consumables revenue was $384 million, a decrease of 3 percent compared to the prior year. Excluding the impact from currency, revenue for the business group grew 1 percent, primarily as a result of growth in our cell culture products, sample prep products and benchtop instruments.
  • Genetic Analysis revenue was $353 million in the third quarter, a decrease of 1 percent over the same period last year. Excluding the impact from currency, revenue increased 2 percent primarily as a result of increased sales of the Ion Torrent platform, including the Ion Proton System and the Ion PGM benchtop instruments, offset by an expected decline in SOLiD® instrument sales and lower sales of CE instruments, primarily due to one-time orders in the prior year quarter and the timing of sales.
  • Applied Sciences revenue was $174 million in the third quarter, flat compared to the same period last year. Excluding the impact from currency, revenue increased 3 percent, primarily due to forensics and higher sales of qPCR applied sciences instruments, offset by lower sales of CE instruments due to one-time orders in the prior year quarter, and an expected decline in BioProduction sales, which tend to fluctuate quarter to quarter.
  • Regional revenue growth rates excluding currency for the quarter compared to the same quarter of the prior year were as follows: the Americas declined 1 percent, Europe grew 2 percent, Asia Pacific grew 10 percent and Japan grew 4 percent.

Fiscal Year 2012 Outlook

Subject to the risk factors detailed in the Safe Harbor Statement section of this release, the company is updating its guidance. The company's updated 2012 guidance is for organic revenue growth of approximately 2 percent over 2011 revenues of $3.7 billion. Additionally, the company is tightening the previously provided range by increasing the bottom by $0.05 and is now expecting non-GAAP earnings per share of $3.95 to $4.00. The company will provide further detail on its business outlook during the webcast today.

@ThingsExpo Stories
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
