HBIO Reports Second Quarter 2012 Revenue Growth of 5% Over Second Quarter 2011

HOLLISTON, Mass., Aug. 2, 2012 (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, 2012.

Second Quarter Reported Results

Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2012 were $28.5 million, an increase of $1.4 million, or 5.0% compared to revenues of $27.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. Currency exchange rates had a negative 2.1% effect on revenues in the second quarter of 2012 compared with the second quarter of 2011. Our acquisitions of CMA Microdialysis AB ("CMA") in July 2011, AHN Biotechnologie GmbH ("AHN") in February 2012 and Modular SFC, Inc. ("Modular") in May 2012 had a positive 4.9% effect on revenues. Excluding the effects of currency changes and acquisitions, our organic revenue growth for the second quarter of 2012 was 2.2% over the same period in the previous year.

Net income, as measured under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), was $0.8 million, or $0.03 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $1.4 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the same period in 2011. The unfavorable year-to-year quarterly GAAP earnings comparison was primarily due to increased spending in our development-stage Regenerative Medicine Device ("RMD") business.

On a non-GAAP adjusted basis, earnings per share for our core Life Science Research Tools ("LSRT") business for the second quarter of 2012 and 2011 were $0.10 per diluted share. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share for our RMD business for the second quarter of 2012 was a loss of $0.04 per diluted share, compared with a loss of $0.01 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2011, and reflected greater activities in developing this initiative. Our total non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share, reflecting LSRT and RMD combined, was $0.06 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2012 compared with $0.08 per diluted share for the second quarter of 2011.

Year to Date Reported Results

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012 were $56.8 million, an increase of $3.4 million, or 6.3% compared to revenues of $53.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. Currency exchange rates had a negative 1.6% effect on revenues in the first half of 2012 compared with the same period in the previous year. Our acquisitions of CMA in July 2011, AHN in February 2012 and Modular in May 2012 had a positive 4.7% effect on revenues. Excluding the effects of currency changes and acquisitions, our organic revenue growth for the first half of 2012 was 3.2% over the same period in the previous year.

Net income, as measured under GAAP, was $1.3 million, or $0.04 per diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $3.0 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the same period in 2011. The unfavorable year-to-year quarterly GAAP earnings comparison was primarily due to increased spending in our development-stage RMD business.

On a non-GAAP adjusted basis, earnings per share for our core LSRT business for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $0.20 per diluted share, compared with $0.18 per diluted share for the same period in 2011. Non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share for our RMD business for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was a loss of $0.07 per diluted share, compared with a loss of $0.03 per diluted share for the same period in 2011, and reflected greater activities in developing this initiative. Our total non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share, reflecting LSRT and RMD combined, were $0.13 per diluted share for six months ended June 30, 2012 compared with $0.16 per diluted share for the same period in 2011.

Commenting on the Company's performance, Chane Graziano, CEO, stated, "Despite a relatively soft global economy we ended the second quarter 2012 in our core LSRT business with revenues of $28.5 million and non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share of 10 cents in line with our expectations and our guidance for the quarter. We also continued to show improvements in our gross profit margins primarily driven by the introduction of new pumps at Harvard Apparatus, a new spectrophotometer at Biochrom and operational improvements at Hoefer, Coulbourn and Panlab."

Mr. Graziano continued, "In our RMD business we achieved a major milestone with our participation in the initiation of a clinical trial for regenerated tracheal transplants funded under a "$5 million Mega Grant" from the Russian government and the first two patients enrolled in the trial have already been treated."

"Looking forward to the balance of the year," he continued, "we are maintaining our 2012 guidance for our core LSRT business at $115-120 million for revenues and 39-42 cents for non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share. We also continue to expect our RMD business's operating expenses to be about 13 cents per diluted share this year."

Mr. Graziano further added, "We expect revenues for our core LSRT business in the third quarter to be in the $27-28 million range and non-GAAP adjusted diluted earnings per share to be in the 9-10 cents range. In our RMD business, we expect third quarter operating expenses to be in the range of 3-4 cents per diluted share."

Our third quarter 2012 revenue and earnings guidance was calculated using exchange rates (USD 1.55/GBP, USD 1.25/Euro and USD 0.14/SEK) approximating July 5, 2012 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, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Operating Results for Continuing Operations

Three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to three months ended June 30, 2011:

Revenues increased $1.4 million, or 5.0%, to $28.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $27.1 million for the same period in 2011. Our acquisitions of CMA, AHN and Modular contributed approximately $1.3 million, or 4.9% to second quarter 2012 revenues. The effect of a stronger U.S. dollar decreased our second quarter revenues by $0.6 million, or 2.1%, compared with the same period in 2011. Adjusting for the effect of foreign currency fluctuation and acquisitions, revenues were up $0.7 million, or 2.2%, year-to-year and reflected organic growth across our Biochrom, Denville and Hoefer businesses.

Cost of product revenues increased $0.5 million, or 3.6%, to $14.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared with $14.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The increase in cost of product revenues included $0.9 million, or 6.3%, attributable to our acquisitions of CMA, AHN and Modular. A stronger U.S. dollar caused a $0.3 million, or 2.1%, favorable currency effect on the cost of product revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2012. Gross profit as a percentage of revenues increased to 47.8% for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared with 47.1% for the same period in 2011. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of revenues was primarily due to a more favorable sales mix in the second quarter of 2012 compared with the second quarter of 2011.     

Sales and marketing expenses increased $0.5 million, or 11.1%, to $4.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared with $4.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. In LSRT, sales and marketing expenses increased $0.4 million, or 8.5%, to $4.5 million, compared to $4.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to $0.2 million, or 3.7%, of expenses related to our acquisitions of CMA, AHN and Modular, and $0.2 million, or 4.7%, mainly due to increased selling activities at our Denville business. In RMD, sales and marketing expenses increased $0.1 million compared with the second quarter of 2011 primarily due to an increase in business development efforts.  

General and administrative expenses increased $0.7 million, or 16.5% to $4.9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared with $4.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. In LSRT, general and administrative expenses increased $0.3 million, or 8.3%, to $4.4 million, compared to $4.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to our acquisitions of CMA and AHN. In RMD, general and administrative expenses increased $0.4 million due to increased activity in our regenerative medicine device initiative.

Research and development expenses increased $0.8 million, or 74.8% to $2.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared with $1.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. In LSRT, research and development expenses increased $0.3 million, or 37.8%, to $1.1 million, compared to $0.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 due to greater new product development activities at our Biochrom U.K. and Harvard Apparatus U.S. subsidiaries. In RMD, research and development expenses increased $0.5 million, primarily due to increased activity in our stem cell therapy injector and bioreactor development. 

Amortization of intangible assets expenses remained flat at $0.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 and included amortization expenses of intangible assets related to our historical acquisitions.

Other expense and income, net, was $0.2 million expense and $0.5 million expense for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Net interest expense was $0.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 compared to net interest expense of $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in net interest expense was primarily due to lower average debt balances in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the second quarter of 2011. Other expense and income, net, for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, also included $0.1 million and $0.3 million, respectively, of primarily acquisition related expenses.

Income tax expense from continuing operations was approximately $0.3 million and $0.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The effective income tax rate for continuing operations was 27.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2012, compared with 31.5% for the same period of 2011. The difference between our effective tax rate and the U.S. statutory tax rate is principally attributable to foreign tax rate differential and research and development tax credits. Our non-GAAP adjusted income tax rates were 28.0% and 30.2% for the quarters ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The decrease in the GAAP and non-GAAP income tax rate in the second quarter of 2012 compared with the second quarter of 2011 was primarily due to recognition of the aforementioned increased research and development tax credits and foreign tax rate differential.

Six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to six months ended June 30, 2011:

Revenues increased $3.4 million, or 6.3%, to $56.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to $53.5 million for the same period in 2011. Our acquisitions of CMA, AHN and Modular contributed approximately $2.5 million, or 4.7% to the six months ended 2012 revenues. The effect of a stronger U.S. dollar decreased our revenues by $0.8 million, or 1.6%, compared with the same period in 2011. Adjusting for the effect of foreign currency fluctuation and acquisitions, revenues were up $1.7 million, or 3.2%, year-to-year and reflected organic growth across our Harvard, Biochrom, Denville and Hoefer businesses.

Cost of product revenues increased $1.5 million, or 5.3%, to $29.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared with $28.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. The increase in cost of product revenues included $1.6 million, or 5.7%, attributable to our acquisitions of CMA, AHN and Modular. A stronger U.S. dollar caused a $0.4 million, or 1.6%, favorable currency effect on the cost of product revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012. Excluding the effects of currency changes and acquisitions, the cost of product revenues increased by $0.3 million, or 1.2% over the same period in the previous year. Gross profit as a percentage of revenues increased to 47.5% for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared with 47.1% for the same period in 2011. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of revenues was primarily due to a more favorable sales mix in the first half of 2012 compared with the same period in 2011.

Sales and marketing expenses increased $1.1 million, or 12.6%, to $9.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared with $8.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. In LSRT, sales and marketing expenses increased $0.9 million, or 10.9%, to $9.1 million, compared to $8.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to $0.3 million, or 3.2%, of expenses related to our acquisitions of CMA, AHN and Modular, and $0.6 million, or 7.7%, mainly due to increased selling activities at our Denville business. In RMD, sales and marketing expenses increased $0.2 million primarily due to an increase in business development efforts.  

General and administrative expenses increased $1.2 million, or 14.0% to $9.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared with $8.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. In LSRT, general and administrative expenses increased $0.6 million, or 7.0%, to $8.9 million, compared to $8.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 primarily due to our acquisitions of CMA and AHN. In RMD, general and administrative expenses increased $0.6 million due to increased activity in our regenerative medicine device initiative.

Research and development expenses increased $1.3 million, or 54.0% to $3.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared with $2.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. In LSRT, the research and development expenses increased $0.3 million, or 17.8%, to $2.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared to $1.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 due to greater new product development initiatives at our Harvard Apparatus U.S. subsidiary. In RMD, research and development expenses increased $1.0 million, primarily due to increased activity in our stem cell therapy injector and bioreactor development.  

Amortization of intangible asset expenses increased $0.1 million, or 6.2%, to $1.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared with $1.3 million for the same period in 2011. The year-to-year increase in the amortization expense was primarily due to our acquisitions of CMA, AHN and Modular.

Other expense and income, net, was $0.6 million expense and $0.8 million expense for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Net interest expense was $0.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 compared to net interest expense of $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. The decrease in net interest expense was primarily due to lower average borrowings in the first half of 2012 compared to the first half of 2011. Other expense and income, net, for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, also included $0.3 million and $0.4 million, respectively, of primarily acquisition related expenses.

Income tax expense from continuing operations was approximately $0.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. The effective income tax rate for continuing operations was 32.1% for the six months ended June 30, 2012, compared with 17.1% for the same period of 2011. The difference between our effective tax rate and the U.S. statutory tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was principally attributable to foreign tax rate differential and increased research and development tax credits partially offset by discrete expense items related to acquisition costs and stock compensation expense. The difference between our effective tax rate and the U.S. statutory tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was principally attributable to the reversal of uncertain tax liability of $0.5 million and the associated accrued interest in the first quarter of 2011, foreign tax rate differential and increased research and development tax credits. Our non-GAAP adjusted income tax rates were 27.8% and 29.0% for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The decrease in the non-GAAP income tax rate in the first half of 2012 compared with the first half of 2011 was primarily due to recognition of the aforementioned increased research and development tax credits and foreign tax rate differential.

Balance Sheet

We ended the second quarter of 2012 with cash and cash equivalents of $18.7 million compared to $17.9 million at December 31, 2011. As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, we had borrowings of $16.1 million and $16.3 million, respectively, outstanding under our credit facility. The borrowings are mainly related to our acquisitions and stock repurchase program. Total cash and equivalents, net of debt, was $2.6 million and $1.6 million at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

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) and stock-based compensation expense. They also exclude the tax impact of the reconciling items and the recognition of expense and reversal of the benefit related to the uncertain tax positions and the corresponding accrued interest. This non-GAAP financial information is used by our management to internally evaluate our operating results. 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 months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 and changes in total revenue compared to the same period of the prior year are included as exhibits below in this press release.

The non-GAAP financial information provided in this press release should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, the financial information provided and presented in accordance with GAAP.
