Net income, as measured under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), was $4.1 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to $2.1 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the same period in 2009, which represented a 94% year-to-year increase. GAAP income from continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2010 included a $0.4 million gain from adjustment of the contingent consideration related to our Denville Scientific acquisition.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income was $5.0 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, for the six months ended June 30, 2010 compared to $3.5 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, for the first six months of 2009, which represented a 40% year-to-year increase.

The Company ended the second quarter of 2010 with net cash (cash and cash equivalents, net of debt) totaling $4.6 million compared to $3.3 million at December 31, 2009. As of June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009, we had $11.2 million and $13.3 million, respectively, of borrowings under our credit facility related to our purchase of Denville Scientific and our stock repurchase program.

Commenting on the Company's performance, Chane Graziano, CEO, stated, "Harvard Bioscience's financial performance for the second quarter of 2010 was very strong, despite some weakness in our Harvard Apparatus southern Europe subsidiaries. Our overall organic revenue growth increased by 11% compared with the second quarter of 2009. This growth was primarily driven by increased market demand compared to the second quarter of 2009, the introduction of new products and expansion of our field sales organization. The acquisition of Denville Scientific continues to meet our expectations and to be a significant contributor to our overall growth."   

Mr. Graziano continued, "For the third quarter of 2010, at current currency exchange rates, we expect revenue to be in the range of $25 to $27 million and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share to be approximately $0.08.
