Revenue of $309 million, a 24% increase compared to $250 million in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Fourth quarter 2012 results:

•    Revenue of $309 million, a 24% increase compared to $250 million in the fourth quarter of 2011
•    GAAP net income for the quarter of $72 million, or $0.53 per diluted share, compared to net income of $12 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011
•    Non-GAAP net income for the quarter of $57 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, compared to $44 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011 (see the table entitled "Itemized Reconciliation Between GAAP and Non-GAAP Net Income" for a reconciliation of these GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures)
•    Cash flow from operations of $79 million and free cash flow of $62 million for the quarter

Gross margin in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 65.8% compared to 68.2% in the prior year period. Excluding the effect of non-cash charges associated with stock compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles, and amortization of inventory revaluation costs, non-GAAP gross margin was 68.5% for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to 70.2% in the prior year period.

Research and development (R&D) expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $56.9 million compared to $45.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. R&D expenses included $8.0 million and $7.3 million of non-cash stock compensation expense in the fourth quarters of 2012 and 2011, respectively. Excluding these charges and contingent compensation expense, R&D expenses as a percentage of revenue were 15.4% compared to 15.0% in the prior year period.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were $79.7 million compared to $60.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. SG&A expenses included $14.1 million and $12.7 million of non-cash stock compensation expense in the fourth quarters of 2012 and 2011, respectively. Excluding these charges, contingent compensation, acquired intangible asset amortization, and legal contingencies, SG&A expenses as a percentage of revenue were 19.9% compared to 20.1% in the prior year period.

GAAP net income included the impact of a pre-tax gain of $48.6 million from the sale of the Company's minority ownership interest in deCODE Genetics to Amgen, Inc.

Depreciation and amortization expenses were $18.1 million and capital expenditures were $17.1 million during the fourth quarter of 2012. The Company ended the quarter with $1.35 billion in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, compared to $1.19 billion as of January 1, 2012.

Fiscal 2012 results:

•    Revenue of $1.15 billion, a 9% increase over the $1.06 billion reported in fiscal 2011
•    GAAP net income of $151 million, or $1.13 per diluted share, compared to $87 million, or $0.62 per diluted share in fiscal 2011
•    Non-GAAP net income of $210 million, or $1.59 per diluted share, compared to $176 million, or $1.30 per diluted share, in fiscal 2011 (see table entitled "Itemized Reconciliation Between GAAP and Non-GAAP Net Income" for a reconciliation of these GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures)

Gross margin for fiscal 2012 was 67.4% compared to 67.2% in fiscal 2011. Excluding the effect of non-cash charges associated with stock compensation, amortization of acquired intangibles, legal contingencies, and amortization of inventory revaluation costs, non-GAAP gross margin was 69.7% for fiscal 2012 compared to 69.0% in fiscal 2011.

R&D expenses for fiscal 2012 were $231.0 million compared to $196.9 million in fiscal 2011. R&D expenses for fiscal 2012 included a one-time impairment charge of $21.4 million related to an in-process research and development asset previously acquired. R&D expenses also included $30.9 million and $32.1 million of non-cash stock compensation expense in fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively. Excluding these charges and contingent compensation expense, R&D expenses as a percentage of revenue were 15.3% compared to 15.2% in the prior year.

SG&A expenses for fiscal 2012 were $286.0 million compared to $261.8 million in fiscal 2011. SG&A expenses included $55.4 million and $52.3 million of non-cash stock compensation expense in fiscal 2012 and 2011, respectively. Excluding these charges, contingent compensation expense, acquired intangible asset amortization, and legal contingencies, SG&A expenses as a percentage of revenue were 19.5% compared to 19.9% in the prior year.
