NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Bruker said Thursday after the close of the market that it expects to report total revenue for the fourth quarter of more than $355 million.
The updated preliminary results follow its Jan. 13 announcement, when the company had said that revenues for the quarter would be greater than $340 million. GAAP operating margin for Bruker Scientfic Instruments is now projected to exceed 18 percent, the company added. However, it did not provide a revenue figure.
