Luminex Corporation Reports Second Quarter 2020 Results

Delivers Accelerated Organic Growth and Profitability

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Luminex Corporation (Nasdaq: LMNX) today announced results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

All amounts in this release are in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").

CURRENT FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Total revenue for the second quarter of $109.5M, a 32% increase over Q2 2019, driven primarily by COVID related tailwinds associated with the current pandemic
  • Strong profitability in Q2 with 64% gross margins, an improvement of 10 basis points over Q2 2019
  • Operating margin of $18.8M or 17% of revenue, an improvement of 426% over the prior year
  • Net income of $12.5M, 11% of revenue, and $0.27 per share, up approximately 350% over Q2 2019

CEO COMMENTARY

"We are incredibly proud of the difference we are making on an ongoing basis in addressing the global COVID-19 pandemic. In line with our mission, we quickly developed multiple COVID-19 products that work with many of our existing systems, providing flexible testing solutions to the facilities that need them and the healthcare workers and patients that are dependent upon them," said Nachum "Homi" Shamir, President & CEO. "As a result of the increased demand for our products following the outbreak, we delivered record revenue, the most profitable quarter in the history of our company and a significant amount of cash flow. Significant revenue growth in our Molecular Diagnostics franchise drove record sample-to-answer system placements, assay sales and revenue. Notwithstanding our success in addressing COVID-19 with our Molecular Diagnostic products, we experienced COVID-19 headwinds that negatively impacted our Clinical Tools and Life Science revenue streams. After delivering $200M of revenue in the first six months of the year, we are increasing our revenue guidance as a result of overachieving our original expectations and our positive outlook for the remainder of the year."

ADDITIONAL HIGHLIGHTS OF THE QUARTER

  • Molecular Diagnostic revenue for the quarter of $64.9M, up more than 100% vs. Q2 2019
  • Licensed Technologies Group revenue of $35.2M, down 4% vs. Q2 2019
  • Flow Cytometry revenue of $7.4M, down 44% vs. Q2 2019, continues to be significantly impacted by the slowdown in academic research due to COVID-19
  • Operating cash flow of $31M and $24M for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020
  • Ended the quarter with an order book of approximately $29M, most of which is COVID-19 related; almost six times the pre-COVID quarterly average
  • Sold or contracted 162 sample-to-answer systems in the quarter, the majority of which were ARIES®
  • Issued $260.0M of convertible senior notes due in May 2025
  • Received U.S. FDA Emergency Use Authorization on April 6, 2020 for the ARIES® SARS-CoV-2 Assay
  • Received U.S. FDA EUA for COVID-19 antibody test on July 16, 2020
