SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/12/13 -- Quidel Corporation (NASDAQ: QDEL), a leading provider of rapid diagnostic testing solutions and cellular-based virology assays, announced today financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2012.
Fourth Quarter 2012 Highlights:
- Increased total revenues 40% to $53.9 million compared to $38.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.
- Received CE Mark for Sofia® Legionella Fluorescent Immunoassay (FIA) for use with the Sofia Fluorescent Immunoassay Analyzer.
- Received 510(k) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its AmpliVue® handheld molecular diagnostic test for the detection of C. difficile.
- Awarded a milestone-based grant totaling up to $8.3 million from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to develop, manufacture and validate a quantitative, low-cost, nucleic acid assay for HIV drug treatment monitoring on the integrated Savanna MDx platform (Project Wildcat) for use in limited resource settings.
Fourth Quarter 2012 Results
Total revenues in the fourth quarter increased to $53.9 million from $38.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, an increase of 40%. The increase in revenue was driven by growth of infectious disease products in the quarter, due to the onset of an early and severe influenza and respiratory disease season.
Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $8.7 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.0 million, or $0.03 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding amortization of intangibles, stock compensation expense, and including the income tax benefit of research and development tax credit in 2012, net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $12.5 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, compared to net income of $4.9 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, for the same period in 2011.
"We were pleased with our ability to respond to the sudden increase in demand for our flu tests. While sales of QuickVue Influenza A+B benefited most, the Sofia, D3 Ultra, and Quidel Molecular PCR products were a contributor to the increase in revenues in the quarter as well," said Douglas Bryant, president and chief executive officer. "More importantly, our product development teams achieved several key milestones during the period, and we are now poised to introduce a number of new products over the next several quarters," added Bryant.
Full Year 2012 Results
Total revenues for 2012 were $155.7 million as compared to $158.6 million in 2011. For the year ended December 31, 2012, net income was $5.0 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to net income of $7.6 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding amortization of intangibles, stock compensation expense, and including the income tax benefit of research and development tax credit in 2012, net income for the full year 2012 was $19.1 million, or $0.56 per diluted share, compared to net income of $19.8 million, or $0.59 per share, for the full year 2011.
"Even though the revenue impact of an early start to the influenza season was a positive for our quarter and year, our focus lies in diversifying our company's revenue mix and creating other growth opportunities. Our efforts are reflected, noticeably, in the increase in 2012 of R&D and sales and marketing expenses ahead of the launch and commercialization of AmpliVue C. difficile and several other Sofia and Quidel Molecular products in 2013," concluded Bryant.
Non-GAAP Financial Information
The Company's consolidated financial statements are presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S., or GAAP. The Company is providing non-GAAP financial information to present net income and earnings per share excluding the effect of stock-based compensation and amortization of intangibles and including the effect of the research and development tax credit in 2012. Although the research and development tax credit relates to 2012, the benefit of the tax credit cannot be recognized until 2013 under GAAP, the result of legislative approval occurring in January, 2013.
Management is providing the adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share information for the periods presented because it believes this enables a better comparison of the Company's financial performance from period-to-period, and to that of its competitors. This press release is not meant to be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP measures is included in this press release as part of the attached financial tables.

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
