WALTHAM, Massachusetts - Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (TMO), the world leader in serving science, reported its financial results for the second quarter ended July 1, 2017.

Second Quarter 2017 Highlights

    Reported revenue of $4.99 billion.
    Reported GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $1.56.
    Reported adjusted EPS of $2.30.
    Strengthened innovation leadership, highlighted by a new Q Exactive Orbitrap mass spectrometer to advance protein research, the new SeqStudio Genetic Analyzer for a range of sequencing applications, and FDA clearance of our B.R.A.H.M.S. PCT assay to support antibiotic stewardship.
    Made significant progress in precision medicine initiatives, including receiving FDA pre-market approval for our Oncomine Dx Target Test – the first next-generation sequencing-based companion diagnostic for non-small cell lung cancer.
    Opened Center of Excellence for electron microscopy in Saudi Arabia to enable scientific collaboration in the region and continue to increase our presence in fast-growing emerging markets.
    Announced agreement to acquire Patheon for $7.2 billion, gaining entry into the attractive contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) market and significantly enhancing our value proposition for pharma and biotech customers.

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 are pleased to deliver another excellent quarter," said Marc N. Casper, president and chief executive officer of Thermo Fisher Scientific. "Our operational discipline continues to drive strong profitability while we successfully execute our growth strategy to create long-term value.

"We continued to raise the bar in innovation, launching new high-impact products during the quarter to advance life sciences and diagnostics. In Asia-Pacific and emerging markets, our leading presence generated strong results, with double-digit growth in China and India.

"We are also very excited about our pending acquisition of Patheon. This is another great example of how we effectively put our capital to work to create value for our customers and our shareholders."

Casper concluded, "With a successful first half behind us, we are right on track to achieve our growth goals for the year."

Second Quarter 2017

Revenue for the quarter grew 10% to $4.99 billion in 2017, versus $4.54 billion in the second quarter of 2016. Organic revenue growth was 4%; acquisitions increased revenue by 8% and currency translation reduced revenue by 1%. The components of revenue growth do not sum due to rounding.

GAAP Earnings Results

GAAP diluted EPS in the second quarter increased 20% to $1.56, versus $1.30 in the same quarter last year. GAAP operating income for the second quarter of 2017 grew to $752 million, compared with $638 million in the second quarter of 2016. GAAP operating margin increased to 15.1%, compared with 14.1% in the second quarter last year.

Non-GAAP Earnings Results

Adjusted EPS in the second quarter of 2017 rose 13% to $2.30, versus $2.03 in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted operating income for the second quarter of 2017 also grew 13% compared with the same quarter last year. Adjusted operating margin expanded 50 basis points to 23.3%, compared with 22.8% in the second quarter of 2016.

2017 Guidance Update

Thermo Fisher is raising its 2017 guidance to reflect strong second quarter operational performance and a less adverse foreign exchange environment, partially offset by increased interest expense from the recently completed bond offering. The company is raising its revenue guidance to a new range of $19.71 to $19.89 billion versus its previous guidance of $19.51 to $19.71 billion. This would result in 8 to 9 percent revenue growth over the previous year. The company is raising its adjusted EPS guidance to a new range of $9.15 to $9.28, versus the $9.12 to $9.28 previously communicated, for 11 to 12 percent growth over 2016.

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 2017, Life Sciences Solutions Segment revenue grew 3% to $1.40 billion, compared with revenue of $1.37 billion in the second quarter of 2016. Segment adjusted operating margin increased to 31.9%, versus 28.5% in the 2016 quarter.

Analytical Instruments Segment

Analytical Instruments Segment results reflect the acquisition of FEI Company in September 2016. Revenue for the segment grew 47% to $1.17 billion in the second quarter of 2017, compared with revenue of $794 million in the second quarter of 2016. Segment adjusted operating margin increased to 20.0%, versus 18.3% in the 2016 quarter.

Specialty Diagnostics Segment

Specialty Diagnostics Segment revenue grew 1% to $862 million in the second quarter of 2017, compared with revenue of $851 million in the second quarter of 2016. Segment adjusted operating margin was 27.3%, versus 27.9% in the 2016 quarter.

Laboratory Products and Services Segment

In the second quarter of 2017, Laboratory Products and Services Segment revenue grew 4% to $1.79 billion, compared with revenue of $1.72 billion in the second quarter of 2016. Segment adjusted operating margin was 13.8%, versus 15.1% in the 2016 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, benefits from tax credit carryforwards, 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, net of capital expenditures, and also excludes operating cash flows from discontinued operations 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 5 to 20 years. In 2017, based on acquisitions closed through the end of the second quarter of 2017, our adjusted EPS will exclude approximately $2.64 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, benefits from tax credit carryforwards and the impact of significant tax audits or events (such as the effect on deferred tax balances of enacted changes in tax rates), 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, net of capital expenditures, and also excludes operating cash flows from discontinued operations 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.
