WILMINGTON, Mass--(BUSINESS WIRE)--February 13, 2018--Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. (NYSE:CRL) today reported its results for the fourth-quarter and full-year 2017 and provided guidance for 2018. For the quarter, revenue from continuing operations was $478.5 million, an increase of 2.5% from $466.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2016. Revenue growth was driven by the Discovery and Safety Assessment and Manufacturing Support segments.

The addition of a 53rd week at the end of 2016, which is periodically required to align to a December 31st calendar year end, reduced reported fourth-quarter revenue growth by 5.1%. The February 2017 divestiture of the Contract Development and Manufacturing (CDMO) business reduced reported revenue growth by 1.1%. The impact of foreign currency translation benefited reported revenue growth by 2.4%. The acquisition of Brains On-Line contributed 0.7% to consolidated fourth-quarter revenue growth, both on a reported basis and in constant currency. Excluding the effect of these items, organic revenue growth was 5.6%.

On a GAAP basis, the fourth-quarter net loss from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders was $29.8 million, a decrease from net income of $44.7 million for the same period in 2016. The fourth-quarter diluted loss per share on a GAAP basis was $0.63, a decrease from earnings per share of $0.93 for the fourth quarter of 2016. The GAAP loss per share resulted from one-time expenses related to U.S. tax reform in the fourth quarter of 2017, which reduced earnings by $78.5 million, or $1.66 per share.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income from continuing operations was $68.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2017, an increase of 16.9% from $58.3 million for the same period in 2016. Fourth-

quarter diluted earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis were $1.40, an increase of 15.7% from $1.21 per share for the fourth quarter of 2016. The non-GAAP earnings per share increase was driven primarily by a gain from the Company’s venture capital investments, as well as higher revenue and operating income.
