Fluidigm Reports Financial Results For Third Quarter 2012

Fluidigm Corporation (NASDAQ:FLDM) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Product revenue for the third quarter of 2012 was $12.6 million, an increase of 24% from $10.2 million in the third quarter of 2011. Product margin was a record 72% in the third quarter of 2012, up from 67% in the third quarter of 2011 and 69% in the second quarter of 2012. Total revenue for the third quarter of 2012 was $12.8 million, an increase of 21% from $10.6 million in the third quarter of 2011. Net loss for the third quarter of 2012 was $4.2 million, compared to a net loss of $4.5 million in the third quarter of 2011. Non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2012 was $2.6 million, compared with the $3.1 million non-GAAP net loss for the third quarter of 2011 (see accompanying table for reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP measures).

“Our leadership in the emerging single-cell genomics market continued to be a major growth driver in Q3 as this market continued to show strength in a tough macro-environment. We believe growth occurred because our customers are making breakthroughs in many areas of research, including cancer, stem cells, immunology, and infectious disease. In an era of budget sequestration worries, researchers are recognizing that embracing the single-cell field with our market-leading products can be a differentiator. We are energized by how quickly the field is adopting the C 1™ Single-Cell Auto Prep System – the level of interest in the C 1 system has surpassed our expectations. We began shipping C 1 systems in Q3 and have substantially filled the 25 Early Access Program (EAP) slots,” said Gajus Worthington, Fluidigm President and Chief Executive Officer.

“Q3 was another strong consumables quarter too,” he continued, “with growth of 57% fueled by higher pull-through from production customers and an increased installed base of over 605 systems at the end of the third quarter. A continued shift to our higher margin products helped drive very strong product margin performance of 72%.”
