(NYSE: WX), a leading research and development outsourcing company serving the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device industries, with operations in China and the United States, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2013. Highlights oNet Revenues Increased 11.7% Year Over Year to $131.9 Million oLaboratory Services Net Revenues Grew 12.5% Year Over Year to $97.5 Million oChina-Based Laboratory Services Net Revenues Increased 15.5% Year Over Year to $74.5 Million oU.S.-Based Laboratory Services Net Revenues Increased 3.8% Year Over Year to $23.0 Million oManufacturing Services Net Revenues Grew 9.6% Year Over Year to $34.4 Million oGAAP Diluted Earnings Per ADS Grew 7.2% Year Over Year to $0.30 oNon-GAAP Diluted Earnings Per ADS Increased 7.5% Year Over Year to $0.35 oCompany Reconfirms Full-Year 2013 Guidance Management Comment "I am pleased to announce that WuXi began 2013 with a solid first quarter," said Dr. Ge Li, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We achieved 11.7% year-over-year revenue growth, 7.2% GAAP diluted EPS growth, and 7.5% non-GAAP diluted EPS growth in the quarter, exceeding our previous guidance in all three measures. This result gives us confidence to reconfirm our guidance for full-year 2013. "WuXi is succeeding on several fronts at once," Dr. Li continued. "We are achieving double-digit, broad-based revenue growth, while effectively improving operating efficiency and controlling our costs to maintain stable margins. We are investing in capabilities and capacity to sustain strong revenue and earnings growth for years to come. In so doing, WuXi is making progress toward the goal of building an open-access technology platform and integrated services offerings that will enable anyone and any company to discover and develop medicines efficiently and cost-effectively. And we are returning capital to shareholders through share purchases." First-Quarter 2013 GAAP Results First-quarter 2013 net revenues increased 11.7% year over year to $131.9 million. Revenue growth in Laboratory Services of 12.5% was driven by our comprehensive and integrated discovery and development services, primarily in China. Revenue growth of 9.6% in Manufacturing Services was driven by increased demand for clinical-trial materials in our small molecule research manufacturing business and process-chemistry services. We also began biologics manufacturing in the first quarter. First-quarter 2013 GAAP gross profit increased 13.2% year over year to $47.4 million due to 11.7% revenue growth, improved operating efficiency, and effective cost control. Gross margin increased year over year to 36.0% from 35.5%. Gross margin in Laboratory Services increased year over year to 37.6% from 37.1% mainly due to improved productivity, partially offset by the effects of increasing labor costs in China, appreciation of the RMB versus the U.S. dollar, investments in new businesses, and lower pricing in synthetic chemistry services. Gross margin in Manufacturing Services increased year over year to 31.4% from 31.0%. First-quarter 2013 GAAP operating income increased 11.4% year over year to $23.0 million due to the 13.2% increase in gross profit, offset by a 14.8% increase in operating expenses, particularly selling and marketing expenses and research and development expenses. Operating margin decreased slightly to 17.4% from 17.5% due to the increase in operating expenses, partially offset by higher gross margin. First-quarter 2013 GAAP net income increased 3.4% year over year to $21.7 million due to the 11.4% year-over-year increase in operating income, offset by a 39.9% increase in income tax expense primarily due to the increase in taxable income and the one-time benefit of reversal of an uncertain tax provision in the first quarter of 2012. First-quarter 2013 GAAP diluted earnings per ADS increased 7.2% to $0.30 due to the 3.4% increase in net income and a lower number of outstanding ADSs as a result of the company's purchase of about 5 million ADSs in 2012. First-quarter 2013 GAAP comprehensive income increased 8.8% year over year to $23.3 million due to the increase in currency translation adjustments and the 3.4% increase in GAAP net income. First-Quarter 2013 Non-GAAP Results Non-GAAP financial results exclude the impact of share-based compensation expenses and the amortization of acquired intangible assets and the associated deferred tax impact. First-quarter 2013 non-GAAP gross profit increased 11.6% year over year to $48.5 million, mainly due to the broad-based revenue growth discussed above. Non-GAAP gross margin was flat year-over-year at 36.8%, as the benefits of improved productivity were fully offset by the effects of increasing labor costs in China, appreciation of the RMB versus the U.S. dollar, investments in new businesses, and lower pricing in synthetic chemistry services. First-quarter 2013 non-GAAP operating income increased 9.8% year over year to $26.7 million, primarily due to the 11.6% increase in non-GAAP gross profit, partially offset by higher operating expenses, particularly selling and marketing expenses and research and development expenses. Operating margin decreased slightly to 20.2% from 20.6% due to this increase in operating expenses. First-quarter 2013 non-GAAP net income grew 3.7% year over year to $25.4 million due to the 9.8% increase in non-GAAP operating income, offset by higher income tax expense primarily due to the increase in taxable income and the reversal of an uncertain tax provision in the first quarter of 2012. First-quarter 2013 non-GAAP diluted earnings per ADS grew 7.5% year over year to $0.35 due to the 3.7% increase in net income and a lower number of outstanding ADSs as a result of share buybacks in 2012.
