WILMINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--February 8, 2010--Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. (NYSE: CRL) today reported its results for the fourth-quarter and full-year 2009 and provided guidance for 2010. For the quarter, net sales decreased 5.2% to $295.4 million from $311.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. The decrease was net of a foreign currency translation benefit of 3.8%. Higher sales for the Research Models and Services (RMS) segment were offset by lower sales for the Preclinical Services (PCS) segment.

On a GAAP basis, net income for the fourth quarter of 2009 was $17.6 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $663.2 million, or $9.93 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2008. The prior-year results included a non-cash goodwill impairment of $700.0 million, or $10.43 per diluted share, in connection with management’s annual assessment of goodwill on its balance sheet.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income was $32.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2009, compared to $39.7 million for the same period in 2008, a decrease of 19.4%. Fourth-quarter diluted earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis were $0.49, a decrease of 16.9% compared to $0.59 per share in the fourth quarter of 2008. Both the GAAP and non-GAAP results in the fourth quarter of 2009 were impacted primarily by lower sales volume, offset in part by cost-savings actions implemented throughout the year.
