Comment and Outlook

Frank Laukien, President and CEO of Bruker Corporation, commented: “Despite softening demand in some of our key end markets, particularly in Europe, we are pleased with our strong organic revenue growth in the first half of 2012. Also, our backlog remained very healthy as of the end of the second quarter. However, we are disappointed with our profitability in the second quarter of 2012. Our profitability was adversely affected by insufficient backlog conversion, gross margin pressures and higher spending in certain businesses. We remain committed to improving the profitability and cash flow of the company, and we are taking steps to evaluate and improve our cost structure, and to accelerate our backlog conversion.”

Charles Wagner, Chief Financial Officer of Bruker Corporation, added: “Given softening demand in certain key markets, and the lower than expected profitability of the company in the first six months of 2012, we are re-evaluating our business plans for the second half of 2012. While some improvements to the company’s cost structure will be realized in the current year, other initiatives will require investment and time before they yield meaningful benefits. Accordingly, we are reducing our previously announced 2012 financial goals. In addition, we will provide an updated multi-year outlook in coming quarters.”

Updated Financial Goals for 2012

Bruker’s updated financial goals for the full year of 2012, which replace all previously announced goals, are:

  • Revenue of $1.70-$1.75 billion
  • Adjusted EPS of $0.65-$0.70

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 organic revenue growth, adjusted EPS, adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted operating margin, which exclude acquisition-related and restructuring and other charges. 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 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 certain acquisition-related charges or credits and associated tax effects, including charges for the sale of inventories revalued at the date of acquisition, significant transaction costs such as legal fees and credits associated with bargain purchases. We exclude these costs because we do not believe they are indicative of our normal operating costs.

We exclude charges and tax effects associated with restructuring and business divestiture activities, such as reducing overhead and consolidating facilities. We believe that the costs related to these restructuring and business divestiture activities are not 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 12 years. Exclusion of these non-cash amortization expenses allows comparisons of operating results that are consistent over time for both our newly acquired and long-held businesses.

Bruker’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 Bruker’s results of operations included in this press release are not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for Bruker’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.

Definitions of Terms

Organic revenue growth is defined as revenue growth less the effects of changes in foreign currencies and the impact of acquisitions.
