Thermo Fisher Scientific (PRNewsfoto/Thermo Fisher Scientific)

Second Quarter 2018 Highlights

  • Grew revenue 22% to $6.08 billion.
  • Increased GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) 19% to $1.85.
  • Increased adjusted EPS 20% to $2.75.
  • Launched suite of new mass spectrometry systems for life sciences and applied markets – highlighted by the Thermo Scientific Q Exactive UHMR for protein research – as well as new products for clinical research and diagnostics, including the Ion Torrent Oncomine Childhood Cancer Research Assay and the Thermo Scientific B.R.A.H.M.S. Kryptor Gold immunoassay analyzer in Europe.
  • Opened new Precision Medicine Science Center in the U.S., giving customers greater access to the range of technologies and expertise we offer to help them accelerate development of individualized patient treatments.
  • Announced agreement to acquire Gatan Inc., a leading provider of instrumentation and software to enhance the performance of electron microscopy systems.

Adjusted EPS, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating margin and free cash flow are non-GAAP measures that exclude certain items detailed later in this press release under the heading "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures."

"We're pleased to deliver another excellent quarter, which reflects the strength of our global competitive position," said Marc N. Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific. "Conditions across our end markets globally were strong and our team executed well to capture the opportunities for growth.

"Among the highlights during the quarter, we launched a comprehensive line-up of new products to help our customers meet their goals in life science research, applied markets and clinical settings. We continued to effectively leverage our scale to deliver strong growth in Asia-Pacific and emerging markets, including China. We also announced our agreement to acquire Gatan, which is a great fit with our electron microscopy business and will strengthen our customer offering."

Casper added, "Our excellent first half of the year positions us to achieve a very successful 2018."

Second Quarter 2018

Revenue for the quarter grew 22% to $6.08 billion in 2018, versus $4.99 billion in 2017. Organic revenue growth was 8%; acquisitions increased revenue by 12% and currency translation increased revenue by 2%.

GAAP Earnings Results

GAAP diluted EPS in the second quarter increased 19% to $1.85, versus $1.56 in the same quarter last year. GAAP operating income for the second quarter of 2018 grew to $0.94 billion, compared with $0.75 billion in the second quarter of 2017. GAAP operating margin increased to 15.4%, compared with 15.0% in the second quarter of 2017.

Non-GAAP Earnings Results

Adjusted EPS in the second quarter of 2018 increased 20% to $2.75, versus $2.30 in the second quarter of 2017.  Adjusted operating income for the second quarter of 2018 grew 21% compared with the year-ago quarter.  Adjusted operating margin was 23.1%, compared with 23.2% in the second quarter of 2017.

2018 Guidance Update

Thermo Fisher is raising its 2018 revenue and earnings guidance to reflect strong operational performance, partially offset by less favorable foreign exchange. The company is raising its revenue guidance to a new range of $23.68 to $23.86 billion versus its previous guidance of $23.62 to $23.86 billion. This would result in 13 to 14% revenue growth over 2017. The company is raising its adjusted EPS guidance to a new range of $10.89 to $11.01, versus its previous guidance of $10.80 to $10.96, for 15 to 16% growth year over year.

Segment Results

Management uses adjusted operating results to monitor and evaluate performance of the company's four business segments, as highlighted below. Since these results are used for this purpose, they are also considered to be prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Life Sciences Solutions Segment

In the second quarter of 2018, Life Sciences Solutions Segment revenue grew 12% to $1.57 billion, compared with revenue of $1.40 billion in the second quarter of 2017. Segment adjusted operating margin increased to 33.3%, versus 31.9% in the 2017 quarter.

Analytical Instruments Segment

Analytical Instruments Segment revenue grew 13% to $1.31 billion in the second quarter of 2018, compared with revenue of $1.17 billion in the second quarter of 2017. Segment adjusted operating margin increased to 22.2%, versus 19.9% in the 2017 quarter.

Specialty Diagnostics Segment

Specialty Diagnostics Segment revenue grew 8% to $0.93 billion in the second quarter of 2018, compared with revenue of $0.86 billion in the second quarter of 2017. Segment adjusted operating margin was 27.2% in both periods.

Laboratory Products and Services Segment

Laboratory Products and Services Segment results reflect the acquisition of Patheon in late August 2017. In the second quarter of 2018, segment revenue grew 42% to $2.55 billion, compared with revenue of $1.79 billion in the second quarter of 2017. Segment adjusted operating margin was 13.2%, versus 13.7% in the 2017 quarter.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we use certain non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EPS, adjusted operating income and adjusted operating margin, which exclude certain acquisition-related costs, including charges for the sale of inventories revalued at the date of acquisition and significant transaction costs; restructuring and other costs/income; and amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets. Adjusted EPS also excludes certain other gains and losses that are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any predictability, tax provisions/benefits related to the previous items, the impact of significant tax audits or events and the results of discontinued operations. We exclude the above items because they are outside of our normal operations and/or, in certain cases, are difficult to forecast accurately for future periods. We also use a non-GAAP measure, free cash flow, which is operating cash flow from continuing operations, less net capital expenditures, to provide a view of the continuing operations' ability to generate cash for use in acquisitions and other investing and financing activities. We believe that the use of non-GAAP measures helps investors to gain a better understanding of our core operating results and future prospects, consistent with how management measures and forecasts the company's performance, especially when comparing such results to previous periods or forecasts.

For example:

We exclude costs and tax effects associated with restructuring activities, such as reducing overhead and consolidating facilities. We believe that the costs related to these restructuring activities are not indicative of our normal operating costs.

We exclude certain acquisition-related costs, including charges for the sale of inventories revalued at the date of acquisition and significant transaction costs. We exclude these costs because we do not believe they are indicative of our normal operating costs.

We exclude the expense and tax effects associated with the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets because a significant portion of the purchase price for acquisitions may be allocated to intangible assets that have lives of 3 to 20 years. In 2018, based on acquisitions closed through the end of the second quarter of 2018, our adjusted EPS will exclude approximately $3.35 of expense for the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets. Exclusion of the amortization expense allows comparisons of operating results that are consistent over time for both our newly acquired and long-held businesses and with both acquisitive and non-acquisitive peer companies.

We also exclude certain gains/losses and related tax effects, the impact of significant tax audits or events (such as changes in deferred taxes from enacted tax rate changes or the estimated initial impacts of U.S. tax reform legislation), which are either isolated or cannot be expected to occur again with any predictability and that we believe are not indicative of our normal operating gains and losses. For example, we exclude gains/losses from items such as the sale of a business or real estate, gains or losses on significant litigation-related matters, gains on curtailments of pension plans, the early retirement of debt and discontinued operations.

We also report free cash flow, which is operating cash flow from continuing operations, less net capital expenditures, to provide a view of the continuing operations' ability to generate cash for use in acquisitions and other investing and financing activities.

Thermo Fisher's management uses these non-GAAP measures, in addition to GAAP financial measures, as the basis for measuring the company's core operating performance and comparing such performance to that of prior periods and to the performance of our competitors. Such measures are also used by management in their financial and operating decision-making and for compensation purposes.

The non-GAAP financial measures of Thermo Fisher's results of operations and cash flows included in this press release are not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for Thermo Fisher's results of operations prepared in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations of such non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are set forth in the accompanying tables. Thermo Fisher does not provide GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis because we are unable to predict with reasonable certainty and without unreasonable effort items such as the timing and amount of future restructuring actions and acquisition-related charges as well as gains or losses from sales of real estate and businesses, the early retirement of debt and the outcome of legal proceedings. The timing and amount of these items are uncertain and could be material to Thermo Fisher's results computed in accordance with GAAP.
