Affymetrix Announces Preliminary Revenue For Third Quarter 2012

Stocks in this article: AFFX

Affymetrix, Inc. (Nasdaq: AFFX) today reported that based on preliminary financial data, the Company expects total revenue of approximately $80 million for the third quarter of 2012, with revenue of approximately $18 million from the eBioscience business. The Company expects to report cash-on-hand of approximately $39.6 million as of September 30, 2012, after a $3.5 million interest and principal payment on the Company’s senior debt.

The Company believes that total revenue for the third quarter was negatively impacted by a tightening academic funding environment worldwide, primarily affecting its gene expression and eBioscience business units.

“Based on ongoing concerns about global academic funding as well as a weaker Euro, we now believe that total revenue for Affymetrix excluding eBioscience will be flat to slightly down for 2012 relative to the prior year,” said Frank Witney, President and CEO. “We continue to believe that the Affymetrix business is stabilizing, with double digit revenue growth for the quarter in our cytogenetics and genotyping product lines as compared to the third quarter 2011. However, our gene expression and eBioscience business segments were weaker than expected in the quarter. Finally, the integration of eBioscience is on track and we have important new product development and commercial programs that are underway.”

The Company will provide a more detailed business update and complete financial information when it reports its third quarter results after the close of the market on Wednesday, October 31, 2012. The Company is currently observing a pre-earnings quiet period and will not make further comments about its third quarter results in the interim.
