Achieves milestone selling 10,000th multiplexing analyzer.

Luminex Corporation has announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013. Financial and operating highlights include the following:

• Consolidated second quarter revenue was $54.3 million, a 12 percent increase over the second quarter of 2012
• Second quarter assay revenue of $21.7 million, a 24 percent increase over the second quarter of 2012
• Cumulative life-to-date multiplexing analyzer shipments of 10,130, up 11 percent from a year ago
• Consolidated gross margin of 70 percent for the second quarter of 2013
• Non-GAAP net income for the second quarter was $7.2 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, which compares with $6.3 million and $0.15 per diluted share for the same quarter of the previous year. GAAP net income for the quarter was $3.7 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, which compares with $3.0 million and $0.07 per diluted share in the same quarter of 2012 (see the reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP net income set forth on page 8)
• In June, Natural Molecular Testing Corporation began the commercialization of a 42-target test, called The Personalized Medicine Panel, based on Luminex's proprietary technology

"We generated another quarter of strong financial performance, driven by continued execution in our assay segment. Growth in assay revenue was well balanced across our genetic and infectious disease franchises and included a notable contribution from our recent US IVD cleared xTAG® gastrointestinal pathogen panel. This performance also reflects a positive impact from the Company's transition to a direct molecular diagnostic sales force which began in early 2013," said Patrick J. Balthrop, president and chief executive officer of Luminex.

"In addition, we surpassed a major milestone for the Company in the second quarter, delivering our 10,000th multiplexing analyzer to date. The entire company is proud of this achievement," added Balthrop.

"Notwithstanding our success during the second quarter, the overall molecular diagnostic market began to experience a deceleration in the utilization of certain molecular assays. This is a result of administrative issues related to the reimbursement of certain tests included in the new molecular diagnostic code system established January 1, 2013 by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. A number of our lab customers have expended significant efforts in striving for a rapid resolution, nonetheless progress has been slow. While the situation remains fluid, we believe it is prudent to adjust our expectations for the second half of 2013 to account for this headwind," Balthrop concluded.
