Charles River Laboratories International Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 28, 2015; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Fiscal Year 2015

Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 28, 2015. For the first quarter, the company’s total revenue from continuing operations was $320.414 million, an increase of 7.0% from $299.368 million in the first quarter of 2014. Operating income was $43.005 million against $39.706 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations before income taxes was $31.952 million against $42.986 million a year ago. Income from continuing operations, net of income taxes was $31.621 million or $0.66 per diluted share against $32.628 million or $0.67 per diluted share a year ago. Net income attributable to common shareholders was $31.541 million or $0.66 per diluted share against $32.232 million or $0.67 per diluted share a year ago. Net cash provided by operating activities was $11.252 million against $28.463 million a year ago. Capital expenditures were $10.648 million against $11.190 million a year ago. Operating income, excluding specified charges (Non-GAAP) was $51.815 million against $50.981 million a year ago. Net income from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders, excluding specified charges (Non-GAAP) was $37.601 million or $0.79 per diluted share against $39.275 million or $0.82 per diluted share a year ago. The decline was attributable to a significantly smaller gain from its limited partnership investments, which was $0.02 per share in the first quarter of 2015, compared to a $0.08 per share for the same period in 2014. In addition, foreign currency translation reduced earnings per share by approximately $0.03 in the first quarter. Free cash flow declined to $0.6 million in the first quarter of 2015 from $17.3 million last year. This significant decline was primarily driven by 2 large items that reduced operating cash flow in the quarter: First, performance-based cash bonus payments were approximately higher than last year due to the company's outperformance in 2014. This was previously included in free cash flow guidance for 2015; the second item was related to the timing of cash inflows and outflows associated with certain tax items. Timing reduced operating cash flow by approximately $7 million in the first quarter, but is expected to normalize over the course of the year and will not have a meaningful impact for the full year. For the fiscal year 2015, the company is updating its forward-looking guidance based on continuing operations for 2015, which was originally provided on February 10, 2015. Revenue growth is now expected to be 6.5% to 8.0% on a constant-currency basis, primarily due to expected stronger Safety Assessment revenue. Based on current rates, the company expects foreign currency translation will reduce revenue growth by approximately 5.5%, which would result in reported revenue growth of 1.0% to 2.5%. The company originally estimated a 5.0% impact from foreign currency translation and reported revenue growth of 1.0% to 2.5%. The company’s outlook for earnings per share in 2015 is unchanged, as: GAAP EPS from continuing operations estimate to be in the range of $3.15 - $3.25, amortization of intangible assets per share to be $0.31, operating losses per share to be $0.04, Non-GAAP EPS estimate to be in the range of $3.55 - $3.65. The company continue to expect net interest expense to be in a range of $12 million to $14 million in 2015. This outlook primarily reflects an expectation that LIBOR rates will begin to edge higher later in the year. Because of normal quarterly fluctuations based on the earnings mix throughout the year, the company remain comfortable with non-GAAP tax rate outlook of 27% to 28% for the year. The company remain on track to achieve free cash flow of $195 million to $205 million in 2015. CapEx outlook for the year continues to be approximately $70 million.
