Bruker Reports Second Quarter 2016 Financial Results

August 02, 2016

BILLERICA, Mass., Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Bruker Corporation (NASDAQ: BRKR) today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2016.

Bruker's revenues for the second quarter of 2016 were $371.7 million, a decline of 6.1 percent compared to the second quarter of 2015.  Excluding a 3.1 percent net positive effect from acquisitions, Bruker reported a year-over-year organic revenue decline of 9.2 percent in the second quarter of 2016.  Changes in foreign exchange rates did not impact the change in revenues relative to the second quarter of 2015. 

Second quarter 2016 GAAP earnings per diluted share (EPS) were $0.09, compared to GAAP EPS of $0.13 in the second quarter of 2015.  Bruker reported second quarter 2016 non-GAAP EPS of $0.20, compared to $0.19 in the second quarter of 2015.  A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP financial measures is provided in the Company's financial tables accompanying this press release.

For the first six months of 2016, Bruker's revenues declined 0.3 percent to $747.1 million, compared to $749.5 million for the first six months of 2015.  Excluding a 2.3 percent net positive effect from acquisitions, and a 0.4 percent negative effect from changes in foreign exchange rates, Bruker reported a year-over-year organic revenue decline of 2.2 percent for the first six months of 2016. 

Bruker reported GAAP EPS of $0.23 in the first six months of 2016, compared to $0.17 in the first six months of 2015.  Non-GAAP EPS for the first six months of 2016 were $0.41, compared to $0.32 in the first six months of 2015. 

Frank Laukien, the President and CEO of Bruker, commented: "After a strong start to the year in the first quarter, we are disappointed with our revenue decline in the second quarter.  During the first half of 2016, our bookings and revenue declined year-over-year, primarily due to delays in European academic funding, and due to weakening demand from industrial markets worldwide, except for the semiconductor metrology market, where we are experiencing strong growth.  We now expect our reported revenues for the full year 2016 to be roughly flat compared to 2015.  As a result, we are taking additional cost actions to achieve our full year margin expansion and EPS growth commitments." 

Dr. Laukien continued: "In the first half of 2016, Bruker has continued to expand its gross and operating margins despite lower revenue.  We are pleased that our margin expansion, favorable tax rate and lower number of shares outstanding have resulted in 28% year-over-year non-GAAP EPS growth in the first half of 2016, and we continue to expect healthy margin expansion and EPS growth for the full year 2016."

Revised 2016 Financial Outlook

The Company now expects reported revenue in 2016 to be approximately flat compared to the prior year, including an organic decline of -2 percent and acquisition related growth of +2 percent.  Additionally, Bruker expects to increase its non-GAAP operating margin by approximately 75 - 100 basis points year-over-year, and non-GAAP EPS are expected to be between $0.97 and $1.02 in 2016.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The non-GAAP financial measures used by Bruker Corporation in this press release and in its earnings webcast are organic revenue growth; non-GAAP gross profit; non-GAAP gross profit margin; non-GAAP operating income; non-GAAP operating margin; non-GAAP profit before tax; non-GAAP tax rate; non-GAAP net income; non-GAAP earnings per share; return on invested capital; and free cash flow.  These non-GAAP measures exclude costs related to restructuring costs, acquisition and related integration expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets and other costs that are non-recurring in nature. There are limitations in using non-GAAP financial measures as they are not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.

We believe that the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful and supplementary information to investors regarding our quarterly and annual performance.  It is our belief that these non-GAAP financial measures are particularly important as Bruker implements restructuring initiatives to expand operating margins.  The financial impact of these activities, particularly restructuring activities, can be large and may adversely affect the comparability of our results from period-to-period.  We define free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less additions to property, plant, and equipment.  We believe free cash flow is a useful measure to evaluate our business as it indicates the amount of cash generated after additions to property, plant, and equipment which is available for, among other things, strategic acquisitions, investments in our business, and repayment of debt.  We define return on invested capital (RoIC) as non-GAAP operating profit after income tax and minority interest divided by average total capital, which we define as debt plus equity minus cash.  We believe RoIC is an important measure for how effectively the Company invests its capital.

We regularly use non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage, and evaluate our business results and make operating decisions.  We also measure our employees and compensate them, in part, based on such non-GAAP measures.  For the same reasons, we also use this information for our forecasting activities.

Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.  The non-GAAP financial measures are meant to supplement, and to be viewed in conjunction with, GAAP financial measures.  They are limited in value because they exclude charges that have a material effect on our reported results and, therefore, should not be relied upon as the sole financial measures to evaluate our financial results.  Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as provided in the tables accompanying this press release.
