On a US GAAP basis, income from operations was $68.0 million or 6.1% compared with $29.4 million or 3.1% in the prior year.

For the full year net income before restructuring and other items was $60.4 million, compared to $31.5 million last year and net margin was 5.4% of revenue, compared with 3.3% in 2011.

EPS before restructuring and other items for 2012 was $1.00 per share compared with $0.52 in 2011.

On a US GAAP basis net income was $55.4 million, compared to $22.8 million last year. Net margin for the full year 2012 was 5.0% of revenue, up from 2.4% in 2011. EPS on a US GAAP basis for 2012 was $0.92 per share compared with $0.37 in 2011.

For the quarter ended December 31, 2012, cash provided by operating activities was $12.0 million and capital expenditure was $8.4 million.

On the 15th of February we completed the acquisition of the clinical trial service division of Cross Country Healthcare Inc. This will be combined with our DOCS group to create a global leader in resourcing. Consequently we have increased our full year guidance to revenue in the range of $1,258- $1,292 and EPS in the range of $1.44 - $1.60.

CEO Ciaran Murray commented, “In 2012 we saw the validation of our investment strategy as we won a record $1.6 billion of new business and reported milestone revenue of $1.12 billion and EPS of $1.00. Backlog grew 20% to $2.8 billion, which along with continuing investment in capabilities, talent and innovation in drug development, provides a solid foundation for further growth in 2013.”

In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP operating and net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. While non-GAAP financial measures are not superior to or a substitute for the comparable GAAP measures, ICON believes certain non-GAAP information is useful to investors for historical comparison purposes.
