January 7, 2010

BILLERICA, Mass., Jan 07, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Bruker Corporation (NASDAQ: BRKR) announced today that during the second half of 2009, the Company has already received over 100 additional systems orders from various global stimulus funding budgets. This number excludes 51 mass spectrometers delivered to Japan's National Police Agency in the first half of 2009 under a previous supplementary budget.

All five Bruker operating divisions have received stimulus orders, with most orders for high-end instrumentation, especially for NMR, pre-clinical MRI, mass spectrometry and X-ray systems. Bruker estimates that average selling prices of these stimulus orders were greater than $500,000 per system, with a cumulative amount of stimulus orders already received in the second half of 2009 greater than $70 million. These orders are expected to result in revenues primarily in the year 2010, and into the first half of 2011. The Company expects to receive additional orders from various global stimulus programs, including U.S. ARRA funding, in 2010.

Frank Laukien, President and CEO of Bruker Corporation, commented: "We are delighted that so many top-notch researchers around the world have selected high-performance scientific instruments from Bruker, and we thank our customers for their vote of confidence."
