HBIO Reports Second Quarter 2011 Revenue Growth of 5% Over Second Quarter 2010

HOLLISTON, Mass., Aug. 4, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Harvard Bioscience, Inc. (Nasdaq:HBIO), a global developer, manufacturer, and marketer of a broad range of tools to advance life science research and regenerative medicine, today reported unaudited financial highlights for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

Second Quarter Reported Results

Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2011 were $27.1 million, an increase of $1.2 million, or 4.8%, compared to revenues of $25.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. Currency exchange rates had a positive 3.6% effect on revenues in the second quarter of 2011 compared with the second quarter of 2010. The Company's acquisition of Coulbourn Instruments in August 2010 had a positive 2.8% effect on revenues in the second quarter of 2011 compared to the second quarter of 2010. Excluding the effects of currency exchange rates and acquisitions, the Company's revenue growth was negative 1.6% over the same period in the previous year.

Net income, as measured under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), was $1.4 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared to $1.9 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the same period in 2010.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $2.5 million for the second quarter of 2011 compared to $2.3 million for the second quarter of 2010, which represented a 12.0% year-to-year increase. Non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share were $0.08 for the second quarter of 2011 and the second quarter of 2010.

Core Life Science Research Tools  Results

Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share for our core Life Science Research Tools business ("LSRT") for the second quarter of 2011 was $0.10 per diluted share, compared with $0.08 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2010.

Regenerative Medicine Device Results

Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share for our Regenerative Medicine Device business ("RMD") for the second quarter of 2011 was a loss of $0.013 per diluted share, compared with a loss of $0.003 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2010.

Year to Date Reported Results

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2011 were $53.5 million, an increase of $1.3 million, or 2.4%, compared to revenues of $52.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. Currency exchange rates had a positive 2.3% effect on revenues for the first six months of 2011 compared with the same period in 2010. The Company's acquisition of Coulbourn Instruments in August 2010 had a positive 2.0% effect on revenues. Excluding the effects of currency exchange rates and acquisitions, the Company's revenue growth was negative 1.9% versus the same period in the previous year.

Net income, as measured under GAAP, was $3.0 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to $4.1 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the same period in 2010. GAAP income for the six months ended June 30, 2010 included a $0.4 million, or $0.01 per diluted share gain from adjustment of the contingent consideration related to our Denville Scientific acquisition.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $4.6 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to $5.0 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the first six months of 2010. The unfavorable year-to-year non-GAAP adjusted earnings impact was primarily due to increased spending in the Company's RMD business. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share for our core LSRT business for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was $0.18 and for our RMD business was $0.02 per diluted share loss. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share for our core LSRT business for the six months ended June 30, 2010 was $0.18 and for our RMD business was $0.01 per diluted share loss.

As of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, we had net cash (cash and cash equivalents, net of debt) totaling $4.6 million and $1.7 million, respectively. As of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, we had $17.1 million and $18.0 million, respectively, of borrowings under our credit facility. The borrowings related to our purchases of Coulbourn Instruments and Denville Scientific, and our stock repurchase program. During the six months ended June 30, 2011, we repaid $0.9 million of borrowings under our credit facility.

Commenting on the Company's performance, Chane Graziano, CEO, stated, "We are pleased to report a 25% increase in non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share and a 5% increase in revenues compared with the second quarter of 2010 for our core LSRT business. We achieved these results despite some softness in the academic and government-funded research lab markets. Major contributors to this performance were the acquisition of Coulbourn Instruments, expansion of the operating margin at Denville Scientific and operational improvements at Panlab, our Spanish subsidiary. We are maintaining our LSRT revenue and earnings guidance for 2011. For the third quarter, we expect our revenues to be in the $28-29 million range and non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share for the LSRT business to be in the 10-11 cents range. For the year, we expect revenues to be in the $113-$115 million range and non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share for the core LSRT business to be in the 41-43 cents range. Our CMA microdialysis acquisition, which closed on July 1st, and the continued impact of operational improvements will be key factors in achieving this performance."

Mr. Graziano continued, "In our RMD business, we participated in the world's first successful transplant of a synthetic trachea, or windpipe. We provided a custom bioreactor used to grow the patient's cells on a synthetic trachea scaffold that was then implanted in the patient, who suffered from late stage tracheal cancer and had only a few weeks to live. The procedure saved the patient's life. We are proud to be a part of such a breakthrough medical event."

Mr. Graziano added, "Going forward, we will continue our investment in the RMD initiative and expect to spend at our budgeted rate as we complete the development of a clinical stem cell therapy injector. We expect our investment to be in the range of 1-2 cents for the third quarter of 2011 and 5-6 cents for 2011."

Our third quarter 2011 revenue and earnings guidance was calculated using exchange rates (USD 1.60/GBP and USD 1.44/Euro) approximating June 30, 2011 rates and assumes a continuation of the business conditions as we see them at this time. The non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share guidance excludes amortization of intangible assets, the impact of future acquisitions, acquisition costs, any future restructuring actions, and stock-based compensation expense recognized under the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 718, "Compensation — Stock Compensation." See the table below for a reconciliation of our estimated non-GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share to our estimated GAAP earnings per diluted share. See Exhibits 4, 5 and 6 for reconciliations of GAAP to non-GAAP adjusted operating income, GAAP to non-GAAP adjusted net income and GAAP diluted earnings per common share to non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per common share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

Operating Results for Continuing Operations

Three months ended June 30, 2011 compared to three months ended June 30, 2010:

Revenues increased $1.2 million, or 4.8%, to $27.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared to $25.9 million for the same period in 2010. Our Coulbourn Instruments subsidiary, which we acquired in August 2010, contributed approximately $0.7 million, or 2.8% to the increase in the second quarter 2011 revenues. The effect of a weakened U.S. dollar increased the Company's second quarter revenues by $0.9 million, or 3.6%, compared with the same period in 2010. Adjusting for the effect of foreign currency fluctuation and the Coulbourn Instruments acquisition, revenues were down $0.4 million, or 1.6%, compared with the second quarter of 2010.

In our Biochrom business, sales of one product, our Nanovue spectrophotometer, negatively affected the Company's global year-to-year revenue comparison by approximately 3.5%. As expected, sales of our Nanovue product to GE Healthcare were approximately $0.9 million lower in the second quarter of 2011 compared to the second quarter of 2010. During 2010 GE Healthcare purchased sufficient Nanovue units to meet certain contractual minimums. In so doing, we believe they built a large inventory of Nanovue product during 2010. Our 2011 business plan for Biochrom anticipated a reduction of Nanovue revenues of approximately $5.0 million in 2011 compared to 2010. We expect Nanovue shipments to return to a higher rate later this year as GE Healthcare normalizes its inventories.

Cost of product revenues increased $0.5 million, or 3.6%, to $14.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $13.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. The increase in cost of product revenues included $0.5 million attributable to our Coulbourn Instruments subsidiary acquisition in August 2010, and $0.5 million from the currency effect of a weakened U.S. dollar which was partially offset by lower cost of sales at our Biochrom business and the effects of our cost reductions related to the operational improvement initiatives. Gross profit as a percentage of revenues increased to 47.1% for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared with 46.6% for the same period in 2010. The year-to-year quarterly increase reflected the effects of our ongoing operational improvement initiatives and a more favorable sales mix.

Sales and marketing expenses increased $0.1 million, or 1.9%, to $4.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $4.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. In LSRT, sales and marketing expenses remained flat at $4.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. In RMD, sales and marketing expenses increased $0.1 million primarily due to an increase in business development expenses. 

General and administrative expenses increased $0.4 million, or 10.5% to $4.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $3.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. In LSRT, general and administrative expenses increased $0.3 million, or 11% primarily due to a $0.1 million increase due to our Coulbourn Instruments subsidiary acquisition, a $0.1 million increase due to the impact of a weaker U.S. dollar compared to the same period in 2010, and a $0.1 million increase in other general and administrative areas combined. In RMD, general and administrative expenses increased $0.1 million due to increased activity related to our regenerative medicine initiative.

Research and development expenses remained flat at $1.1 million for the three month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. In LSRT, the research and development expenses reduced $0.2 million, or 22%, due to lower expenses of $0.3 million at Biochrom partly offset by a $0.1 million increase due to our Coulbourn Instruments subsidiary acquisition. In RMD, research and development expenses increased $0.2 million primarily due to development of our stem cell therapy injector. 

Amortization of intangible assets expenses increased $0.1 million, or 19.0%, to $0.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $0.6 million for the same period in 2010. The year-to-year quarterly increase in the amortization expenses was primarily due to the acquisition of Coulbourn Instruments in August 2010.

Other income expense, net, was $0.5 million expense for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $0.1 million income for the three months ended June 30, 2010. Net interest expense was $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared to $0.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010. The increase in net interest expense was primarily due to higher average debt balances in the second quarter of 2011 compared to the second quarter of 2010. Other income and expense, net, also included direct acquisition costs of $0.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared to $0.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010 and a $0.4 million gain for the three months ended June 30, 2010 from adjustment of the contingent consideration related to our Denville Scientific acquisition.

Six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to six months ended June 30, 2010:

Revenues increased $1.3 million, or 2.4%, to $53.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to $52.2 million for the same period in 2010. Our Coulbourn Instruments subsidiary acquisition contributed approximately $1.1 million, or 2.0%, to the revenue increase in the six months ended June 30, 2011. The effect of a weakened U.S. dollar increased the Company's revenues by $1.2 million, or 2.3%, compared with the same period in 2010. Adjusting for the effects of foreign currency and acquisition, revenues were down $1.0 million, or 1.9%, year-to-year, primarily in our Biochrom business.

Cost of product revenues increased $0.9 million, or 3.4%, to $28.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $27.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. The increase in cost of product revenues included $0.7 million attributable to our Coulbourn Instruments subsidiary acquisition. A weakened U.S. dollar caused a $0.6 million unfavorable currency effect on cost of product revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2011. Gross profit as a percentage of revenues decreased to 47.1% for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared with 47.6% for the same period in 2010. The decrease in gross profit as a percentage of revenues was primarily due to sales mix.

Sales and marketing expenses increased $0.4 million, or 5.6%, to $8.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $8.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. In LSRT, sales and marketing expenses increased $0.2 million, or 2.6%, primarily due to $0.1 million of expenses related to our Coulbourn Instruments subsidiary acquisition, and $0.1 million due to the impact of a weaker U.S. dollar compared to the same period in 2010. In RMD, sales and marketing expenses increased $0.2 million primarily due to an increase in business development expenses. 

General and administrative expenses increased $0.5 million, or 6.1%, to $8.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $8.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. In LSRT, general and administrative expenses increased $0.4 million, or 6.4% primarily due to a $0.3 million increase due to our Coulbourn Instruments subsidiary acquisition, and a $0.1 million increase in other general and administrative areas combined. In RMD, general and administrative expenses increased $0.1 million due to increased activity in our regenerative medicine device initiative.

Research and development expenses increased $0.1 million, or 3.7%, to $2.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $2.3 million for the same period in 2010. In LSRT, the research and development expenses decreased $0.3 million, or 15.0%, due to lower expenses of $0.4 million at our Biochrom and Harvard Apparatus businesses partly offset by a $0.1 million increase due to our Coulbourn Instruments subsidiary acquisition. In RMD, research and development expenses increased $0.4 million primarily due to development of our stem cell therapy injector.

Amortization of intangible assets expenses increased $0.2 million, or 18.1%, to $1.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared with $1.1 million for the same period in 2010. The year-to-year increase in the amortization expenses was primarily due to the acquisition of Coulbourn Instruments in August 2010.

Other income and expense, net, was $0.8 million and $29,000 expense for the six month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. Net interest expense was $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to net interest expense of $0.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. The increase in net interest expense was primarily due to higher average debt balances in the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to the prior year period. Other income and expense, net, for the six months ended June 30, 2010 also included a $0.4 million gain from adjustment of the contingent consideration related to our Denville Scientific acquisition and foreign exchange losses of $0.1 million. Other income and expense, net, for the six month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, also included $0.4 million and $0.1 million, respectively, of direct acquisition costs.

Balance Sheet

The Company ended the second quarter of 2011 with cash and cash equivalents of $21.7 million compared to $19.7 million at December 31, 2010. As of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, the Company had borrowings of $17.1 million and $18.0 million, respectively, outstanding under its credit facility. At June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, the Company had net cash (cash and cash equivalents, less debt) of $4.6 million and $1.7 million, respectively. 

Trade receivables were $14.5 million and inventories were $19.0 million as of June 30, 2011 compared to trade receivables of $13.9 million and inventories of $14.6 million as of June 30, 2010. Outstanding days of sales, or DSO, were 49 days and 50 days for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2011, and 49 days each for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively.

Inventories increased by $4.4 million, or 30.0%, year-to-year. The increase included $0.6 million, or 3.8% attributable to our Coulbourn Instruments subsidiary acquisition in August 2010, and $0.7 million, or 5.1% from the currency effect of a weaker U.S. dollar. Adjusting for the effect of foreign currency fluctuation and excluding the effect of acquisitions, the inventory balance year-to-year increased by $3.1 million, or 21%. The increase mainly occurred at our Harvard US, Biochrom UK and Denville businesses. This increase reflected a combination of several factors, including new product introductions and volume purchases to ensure sufficient supply and favorable pricing. Inventory turns were 3.1 times for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared with 3.9 times for the same period of 2010.

The Company spent $1.8 million to repurchase approximately 497,000 shares of its common stock during the six months ended June 30, 2010. The share repurchases made in 2010 completed the Company's $10 million stock repurchase program.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

In this press release, we have included non-GAAP financial information including adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per diluted share. We believe that this non-GAAP financial information provides investors with an enhanced understanding of the underlying operations of the business. For the periods presented, these non-GAAP financial measures of income have excluded certain expenses and income primarily resulting from purchase accounting or events that we do not believe are related to the underlying operations of the business such as amortization of intangibles related to acquisitions, costs related to acquisition initiatives, restructuring expenses (including related inventory write-downs), stock-based compensation expense and gain from adjustment of acquisition contingencies. They also exclude the tax impact of the reconciling items, utilization of deferred tax assets that have full valuation allowances and the reversal of the benefit related to the uncertain tax positions and the corresponding accrued interest. This non-GAAP financial information approximates information used by our management to internally evaluate the operating results of the Company. Tabular reconciliations of our non-GAAP adjusted operating income, non-GAAP adjusted net income and non- GAAP adjusted earnings per diluted share for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 and changes in total revenue compared to the same period of the prior year are included as exhibits below in this press release.
