Luminex Expects Significant Revenue Shortfall in Q1

NEW YORK, April 2 - Luminex said on Monday that it expects first-quarter financial results to be "significantly" lower than its prior guidance.

With its rejiggered outlook, triggered by continued delays in the commercialization timetables of its customers, Luminex now expects a wider-than-expected first-quarter loss of $.20 to $.23 per share on revenue of $2.2 million to $2.7 million.
Luminex said its revenue continues to be bruised by the "lengthy and unpredictable" sales cycle for its products, including its xMAP bioassay technology.
