Bruker Daltonics, AXS Posts Q2 Revenue, R&D Growth

NEW YORK, Aug. 7 (GenomeWeb News) - Bruker Biosciences' Daltonics division saw its second-quarter revenue grow more than 23 percent year over year, and its Bruker AXS unit grew more than 10 percent. Bruker Daltonics and Bruker AXS merged last month to form Bruker Biosciences.


Total revenue at the Daltonics division for the period ended June 30 grew to $34.4 million from $28 million in the same quarter one year ago. Receipts for the AXS unit, meantime, increased to $26.5 million from $24 million year over year.


R&D spending in the quarter for the Daltonics units inched up to $6.6 million from $5.1 million during the same period last year, and also increased to $3.2 million from $2.8 million for the ASX division, Bruker said.


As a result, Bruker Daltonics in the current second quarter posted a net loss of $200,000, or $0 per share, down from $4.2 million, or $.08 per share, in the year-ago period. Bruker AXS, meantime, reported net losses of $2 million, or $.03 per share, up from $600,000, or $.01 per share, year over year.


Bruker Daltonics said it had around $46.8 million in cash and short-term investments as of June 30, and Bruker AXS said it had roughly $48 million through the same period.
