Bio-Rad Reports Second-Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Business Wire - Thu Jul 28, 2022

Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BIO and BIOb), a global leader in life science research and clinical diagnostic products, today announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Second-quarter 2022 net sales were $691.1 million, a decrease of 3.5 percent compared to $715.9 million reported for the second quarter of 2021. COVID-related revenue was approximately $33 million in the second quarter of 2022 versus approximately $69 million reported in the year-ago period. On a currency-neutral basis, quarterly sales increased 0.5 percent compared to the same period in 2021. Excluding COVID-related sales, revenue increased 5.7% on a currency-neutral basis.

Second-quarter gross margin was 57.3 percent compared to 56.1 percent for the second quarter of 2021.

Life Science segment net sales for the second quarter were $322.4 million, a decrease of 3.5 percent compared to the same period in 2021. On a currency-neutral basis, Life Science segment sales increased 0.5 percent compared to the same quarter in 2021. The currency-neutral sales increase was primarily due to increased sales of Process Chromatography and Protein Quantitation products.

Clinical Diagnostics segment net sales for the second quarter were $367.8 million, a decrease of 3.3 percent compared to the same period in 2021. On a currency-neutral basis, net sales were up 0.7 percent versus the same quarter last year. The currency-neutral sales increase was primarily driven by growth in the Quality Controls and the Immunohematology businesses.

Income from operations for the second quarter of 2022 was $120.2 million versus $124.8 million during the same quarter last year.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2022 was $927.2 million, or a loss of $31.12 per share, on a diluted basis, versus $914.1 million of net income, or $30.32 per share, on a diluted basis, during the same period in 2021. Net income (loss) amounts for the second quarter of 2022 and 2021 were primarily impacted by the recognition of changes in the fair market value of equity securities related to the holdings of the company’s investment in Sartorius AG.

The effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2022 was 24.2 percent, compared to 21 percent for the same period in 2021. The second-quarter 2022 effective tax rate was primarily affected by an unrealized loss in equity securities and the tax rate reported in Q2 of 2021 was primarily affected by an unrealized gain in equity securities.

“During the second quarter, we continued to see solid demand in our core Life Science and Clinical Diagnostics segments against the backdrop of the ongoing macroeconomic, geopolitical, and supply chain challenges,” said Norman Schwartz, Bio-Rad’s President, and Chief Executive Officer. “Looking to the second half of the year, while we expect the supply chain constraints to continue, we remain on track to achieve our full-year 2022 financial outlook.”

A reconciliation between GAAP operating results and non-GAAP operating results is provided following the financial statements that are part of this press release. Non-GAAP adjustments include amortization of purchased intangibles; acquisition-related expenses and benefits; restructuring, impairment charges and gains and losses from change in fair market value of equity securities and loan receivable; gains and losses on equity-method investments; significant litigation charges or benefits and legal costs; and discrete income tax events and the income tax effect on these non-GAAP adjustments.

Non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted income per share (non-GAAP EPS) are non-GAAP measures that exclude certain items detailed later in this press release under the heading “Non-GAAP and Currency-Neutral Reporting.”

Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2022 was $101.4 million, or $3.38 per share, on a diluted basis, compared to $106.6 million, or $3.54 per share, on a diluted basis, during the same period in 2021.

The non-GAAP effective tax rate for the second quarter of 2022 was 19 percent, compared to 21.5 percent for the same period in 2021. The lower rate in 2022 was driven by the geographical mix of earnings, as well as the benefit of a preferential tax rate related to export sales.

The following table represents a reconciliation of Bio-Rad’s reported net income (loss) and diluted income (loss) per share to non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted income per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, and 2021:

On a reported basis, net sales for the first half of 2022 decreased 3.6 percent to $1,391.2 million compared to $1,442.7 million for the same period in 2021. On a currency-neutral basis, net sales decreased 0.1 percent.

Year-to-date net loss for 2022 was $4,296.8 million, or $143.8 per share on a fully diluted basis, compared to net income of $1,891.5 million, or $62.70 per share, respectively, during the same period in 2021. On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the first two quarters of 2022 was $250.5 million, or $8.32 per share, compared to $264.0 million, or $8.75 per share, during the same period in 2021.

2022 Financial Outlook

For the full-year 2022, the company now anticipates non-GAAP currency-neutral revenue growth to be at the high end of the prior 1.0 to 2.0 percent guidance, with Covid-related revenue expected to be about $93 million versus approximately $70 million previously. The company is reaffirming its non-GAAP operating margin expectation of approximately 19.0 percent. Bio-Rad’s management will discuss this outlook in greater detail during the second-quarter 2022 financial results conference call.

Share Repurchase Program

On July 28, 2022, Bio-Rad announced that its board of directors authorized increasing the amount available under the company's Share Repurchase Program to allow the company to repurchase up to an additional $200 million of stock. Today, a total of $298.1 million is available for repurchases under the company's program.

Repurchases under the Share Repurchase Program may be made at management's discretion from time to time on the open market or through privately negotiated transactions. The Share Repurchase Program has no time limit and may be suspended for periods or discontinued at any time. Any shares acquired will be available for general corporate purposes, including supporting employee stock plans, funding acquisitions, and minimizing dilution from stock issuances.

Use of Non-GAAP and Currency-Neutral Reporting

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, gains and losses from change in fair market value of equity securities and loan receivable, 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 ongoing business.

Restructuring, impairment charges, and gains and losses from change in fair market value of equity securities and loan receivable, 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 gains and losses from change in fair market value of equity securities and loan receivable, 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 ongoing 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 ongoing 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.
