In the third quarter of 2012, net sales grew 10% at constant exchange rates, or CER, (+5% on a reported basis) to $304.3 million from the same period in 2011 on expansion in all customer classes and geographic regions.

Adjusted operating income rose at a faster pace (+12%) to $83.7 million in the third quarter of 2012, as the adjusted operating income margin rose to 28% of net sales from 26% in the 2011 quarter. Adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $0.26, up from $0.24 in the 2011 period. In October, QIAGEN also completed a $400 million U.S. private placement debt offering that strengthens its long-term financial position, and began its previously announced $100 million share repurchase program.“We are pleased to report another quarter with double-digit sales growth at constant exchange rates and higher adjusted operating income, and to reaffirm our full-year outlook. Our ongoing focus on growth drivers – including new products and acquisitions, our rollout of the QIAsymphony platform and expansion in rapidly growing emerging markets – are paying off with an improved performance and building momentum,” said Peer M. Schatz, Chief Executive Officer of QIAGEN N.V. “All regions and customer classes contributed to growth in the third quarter. QIAGEN’s strong financial position enabled us to complete a private placement on favorable terms and to launch our previously announced share repurchase program. We believe our initiatives to drive growth and innovation at a faster pace are gaining momentum, all based on our strategy to leverage our leadership in Sample & Assay Technologies across all customer classes.”

All customer classes and geographic regions contributed to sales growth of 10% CER in the third quarter of 2012. Sales added by the acquisitions of Cellestis, Ipsogen and AmniSure provided seven percentage points of the CER growth in the quarter, while the rest of the QIAGEN portfolio added three percentage points of CER growth. (The Cellestis acquisition reached its one-year anniversary on August 28, 2012, and the Ipsogen anniversary was July 12, 2012; AmniSure was acquired May 3, 2012.) Currency movements had a negative impact of five percentage points on reported growth.

Operating income rose 14% to $39.0 million in the third quarter of 2012 from $34.3 million in the 2011 quarter. Adjusted operating income, which excludes items such as restructuring and acquisition-related costs, share-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets, rose 12% to $83.7 million from $74.8 million in the third quarter of 2011. The adjusted operating income margin improved to 28% of net sales from 26% in the year-ago period, with the adjusted gross margin steady at 72% of net sales.

Net income attributable to owners of QIAGEN N.V. declined 17% to $29.2 million from $35.1 million in the third quarter of 2011, primarily due to a one-time gain in the 2011 period recognized in other miscellaneous income in connection with the Cellestis acquisition. Diluted EPS was $0.12 (based on 242.1 million diluted shares) compared to $0.15 in the year-ago period (238.2 million diluted shares). Adjusted net income attributable to owners of QIAGEN N.V. rose 11% to $62.3 million from $56.3 million in the 2011 quarter, as adjusted diluted EPS was $0.26 in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $0.24 in the year-ago period.

Net sales advanced at a double-digit pace in constant exchange rates (+12% CER) in the first nine months of 2012, driven by steady growth year-to-date in all customer classes – particularly Molecular Diagnostics and Applied Testing – and geographic regions. The acquisitions of Cellestis, Ipsogen and AmniSure contributed seven percentage points of total CER growth, and the rest of the QIAGEN portfolio provided five percentage points. Currency movements had a negative impact of three percentage points on reported growth.

Operating income rose 1% to $120.9 million in the first nine months of 2012 from $119.2 million in the same period of 2011. Adjusted operating income, which excludes items such as restructuring and acquisition-related costs, share-based compensation and amortization of intangible assets, rose 12% to $250.4 million from $224.0 million in the first nine months of 2011. The adjusted operating income margin improved to 28% of net sales from 27% a year earlier, with an adjusted gross margin of 71% in the 2012 period compared to 72% in the first nine months of 2011.

Net income attributable to owners of QIAGEN N.V. declined 6% to $91.1 million in the first nine months of 2012 from $96.4 million in the same period of 2011, while diluted EPS was $0.38 (based on 240.4 million diluted shares) compared to $0.40 (239.9 million diluted shares) in the year-ago period. Adjusted net income attributable to owners of QIAGEN N.V. grew 11% to $177.9 million in the first nine months of 2012, up from $160.8 million in the same period of 2011, as adjusted diluted EPS rose to $0.74 from $0.67.

Cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2012, rose to $258.2 million from $221.1 million at December 31, 2011. Net cash provided by operating activities rose to $175.0 million in the first nine months of 2012 from $165.1 million in the same period of 2011. Net cash used in investing activities was $222.7 million (including cash payments of $132.0 million for acquisitions), down from $503.6 million in the 2011 period. Net cash provided by financing activities was $81.6 million in the first nine months of 2012 compared to cash used in financing activities of $66.7 million in the year-ago period.

“Our results so far in 2012 show that QIAGEN is creating a foundation for future growth and delivering greater value to shareholders,” said Roland Sackers, Chief Financial Officer of QIAGEN N.V. “We have further strengthened our healthy financial position while improving returns to shareholders. In October, we launched our program to repurchase up to $100 million of common stock and also completed a $400 million U.S. private debt placement on very favorable terms, which provides longer-term flexibility for growth initiatives.”
