Second Quarter 2012 Highlights:
Second Quarter 2012 Results
Total revenues increased 12% for the second quarter of 2012 to $30.9 million, as compared to $27.5 million in the second quarter of 2011, driven mainly by an increase in sales of infectious disease products.
Net loss for the second quarter of 2012 was $3.1 million, or $(0.09) per share, compared to net loss of $3.7 million, or $(0.11) per share, for the second quarter of 2011. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding amortization of intangibles and stock compensation expense, net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $0.2 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net loss of $1.1 million, or $(0.03) per share, for the second quarter of 2011.
"Our financial results for the quarter were as expected. In addition, we made steady progress during the quarter with our product development programs, and remain confident in our ability to commercialize the Sofia product line," said Douglas Bryant, president and CEO of Quidel Corporation. "While it's very early, we did see an acceleration in Sofia placements throughout the quarter, driven by CLIA waiver and a larger U.S. sales force, which is encouraging."

Total revenues were $68.8 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 compared to $87.1 million for the same period in 2011.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
The Company is providing non-GAAP financial information to exclude the effect of stock-based compensation and amortization of intangibles on earnings (loss) and net earnings (loss) per share as a supplement to its consolidated financial statements, which are presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S., or GAAP.
Management is providing the adjusted net earnings (loss) and adjusted net earnings (loss) per share information for the periods presented because it believes this enables a better comparison of the Company's financial performance from period-to-period, and to that of its competitors.
