Bio-Rad Reports First-Quarter 2021 Financial Results

HERCULES, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc.  (NYSE: BIO and BIOb), a global leader of life science research and clinical diagnostic products, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

First-quarter 2021 net sales were $726.8 million, an increase of 27.1 percent compared to $571.6 million reported for the first quarter of 2020. On a currency-neutral basis, quarterly sales increased 23.4 percent compared to the same period in 2020. First-quarter gross margin was 55.1 percent compared to 55.5 percent during the first quarter in 2020.

Life Science segment net sales for the first quarter were $366.5 million, an increase of 61.3 percent compared to the same period in 2020. On a currency-neutral basis, Life Science segment sales increased by 56.9 percent compared to the same quarter in 2020. Currency-neutral sales increased across most of our core life science research product lines but were primarily driven by growth in our qPCR, Western Blotting, Droplet Digital PCR, and Process Media products. A significant portion of the Life Science segment growth came from products used to support COVID-19 research and testing. All regions experienced double digit currency-neutral sales growth compared to the same quarter last year.

Clinical Diagnostics segment net sales for the first quarter were $358.5 million, an increase of 5.4 percent compared to the same period in 2020. On a currency-neutral basis, net sales were up 2.2 percent versus the same quarter last year. The currency-neutral sales increase was primarily driven by our Diabetes and Quality Controls products, primarily in the Asia Pacific region.

Income from operations during the first quarter of 2021 was $100.9 million versus $74.4 million during the same quarter last year.

Net income for the first quarter of 2021 was $977.4 million, or $32.38 per share, on a diluted basis, versus $685.9 million, or $22.72 per share, on a diluted basis, during the same period in 2020. Net income for the first quarter of 2021 and 2020 was impacted by the recognition of changes in the fair market value of equity securities, primarily related to the holdings of our investment in Sartorius AG. The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2021 was 24.7 percent, compared to 23.7 percent for the same period in 2020. The tax rates for both periods were driven by the large unrealized gain in equity securities.

“We are pleased with our overall results for the first quarter that reflect strength in many of our core product areas and regions,” said Norman Schwartz, Bio-Rad President and Chief Executive Officer. “As we have anticipated, some of our markets continue to be affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and not operating at full capacity, although we are beginning to see a gradual improvement in our end-markets. We expect that momentum to continue as the year progresses,” he said.

2021 Financial Outlook

For the full year 2021, the company has updated its guidance and now anticipates non-GAAP currency-neutral revenue growth of approximately 5.5 to 6.0 percent and an estimated non-GAAP operating margin of approximately 17.0 percent. Management will discuss this outlook in greater detail on the first-quarter 2021 financial results conference call.

Use of Non-GAAP Reporting and Currency-Neutral

In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we use certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS, which exclude amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, certain acquisition-related expenses and benefits, restructuring charges, asset impairment charges, valuation changes of equity-owned securities, gains and losses on equity-method investments, and significant legal-related charges or benefits and associated legal costs. Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP EPS also exclude 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, and significant discrete tax events. 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 utilize a number of different financial measures, both GAAP and non-GAAP, in analyzing and assessing the overall performance of our business, in making operating decisions, forecasting and planning for future periods, and determining payments under compensation programs. We consider the use of the non-GAAP measures to be helpful in assessing the performance of the ongoing operation of our business. We believe that disclosing non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplemental data that, while not a substitute for financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, allows for greater transparency in the review of our financial and operational performance. We also believe that disclosing non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating our operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management and in comparing financial results across accounting periods and to those of peer companies. More specifically, management adjusts for the excluded items for the following reasons:

Amortization of purchased intangible assets: we do not acquire businesses and assets on a predictable cycle. The amount of purchase price allocated to purchased intangible assets and the term of amortization can vary significantly and are unique to each acquisition or purchase. We believe that excluding amortization of purchased intangible assets allows the users of our financial statements to better review and understand the historic and current results of our operations, and also facilitates comparisons to peer companies.

Acquisition-related expenses and benefits: we incur expenses or benefits with respect to certain items associated with our acquisitions, such as transaction costs, professional fees for assistance with the transaction; valuation or integration costs; changes in the fair value of contingent consideration, gain or loss on settlement of pre-existing relationships with the acquired entity; or adjustments to purchase price. We exclude such expenses or benefits as they are related to acquisitions and have no direct correlation to the operation of our on-going business.

Restructuring, impairment charges and valuation changes in equity-owned securities and gains and losses on equity-method investments: we incur restructuring and impairment charges on individual or groups of employed assets and charges and benefits arising from valuation changes in equity-owned securities and gains and losses on equity-method investments, which arise from unforeseen circumstances and/or often occur outside of the ordinary course of our on-going business. Although these events are reflected in our GAAP financials, these unique transactions may limit the comparability of our on-going operations with prior and future periods.

Significant litigation charges or benefits and legal costs: we may incur charges or benefits as well as legal costs in connection with litigation and other contingencies unrelated to our core operations. We exclude these charges or benefits, when significant, as well as legal costs associated with significant legal matters, because we do not believe they are reflective of on-going business and operating results.

Income tax expense: we estimate the tax effect of the excluded items identified above to determine a non-GAAP annual effective tax rate applied to the pretax amount in order to calculate the non-GAAP provision for income taxes. We also adjust for items for which the nature and/or tax jurisdiction requires the application of a specific tax rate or treatment.

From time to time in the future, there may be other items excluded if we believe that doing so is consistent with the goal of providing useful information to investors and management.

Percentage sales growth in currency-neutral amounts are calculated by translating prior period sales in each local currency using the current period’s monthly average foreign exchange rates for that currency and comparing that to current period sales.

There are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures because the non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The non-GAAP financial measures are limited in value because they exclude certain items that may have a material impact on our reported financial results. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP in the United States. Investors should review the reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as provided in the tables accompanying this press release.

2021 Financial Outlook

Forecasted non-GAAP operating margin excludes 104 basis points related to amortization of purchased intangibles. Forecasted non-GAAP operating margin does not reflect future gains and charges that are inherently difficult to predict and estimate due to their unknown timing, effect and/or significance, such as foreign currency fluctuations, future gains or losses associated with certain legal matters, acquisitions and restructuring activities.
