Quidel Corporation reported unaudited consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company reported total revenues of $61,302,000 compared to $46,673,000 a year ago. Operating income was $8,689,000 against operating loss of $2,016,000 a year ago.

The increase in revenue was due primarily to greater sales of infectious disease products in the first quarter of 2015 as well as growth across all major categories. Operating activities provided $31.8 million of cash and purchase of property and equipment used $2.9 million in the quarter. Tax rate for the first quarter was approximately 31%. The effective tax rate is lower compared to the first quarter of 2014, mostly due to the change in valuation allowance related to certain state deferred tax assets. For the full year, the company expects effective tax rate to be approximately the same. Spend to research and developments will be in the previously communicated range of $40 million to $42 million.
