Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today reported revenues of $1.68 billion for the first fiscal quarter ended Jan. 31, 2013, 3 percent above one year ago. First-quarter GAAP net income was $179 million, or $0.51 per share. Last year’s first-quarter GAAP net income was $230 million, or $0.65 per share.

During the first quarter, Agilent had intangible amortization of $52 million and acquisition, integration and transformation costs of $13 million.

Excluding these items and $5 million of other net charges, Agilent reported first-quarter adjusted net income of $222 million, or $0.63 per share (1).

Agilent CEO Bill Sullivan said, “While we currently face some volatility in our end-markets, we remain excited by our long-term prospects, including opportunities in emerging markets. Agilent will continue to invest in R&D to ensure that we maintain the cutting-edge products and technology leadership that our customers expect from us.”

Electronic Measurement first-quarter revenues declined 7 percent compared with the prior year, primarily due to an anticipated decrease in the communications market. Operating margins were 17 percent.

Chemical Analysis revenues were down 1 percent compared with a year ago, driven by soft environmental markets. Operating margins were 21 percent.

Life Sciences revenues were up 2 percent over a year ago. Pharma saw modest growth, while academic/government markets were flat. Operating margins were 15 percent.
