WILMINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--February 13, 2019--Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. (NYSE: CRL) today reported its results for the fourth-quarter and full-year 2018 and provided guidance for 2019. For the quarter, revenue was $601.5 million, an increase of 25.7% from $478.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2017.

Acquisitions, which included MPI Research and KWS BioTest, contributed 15.7% to consolidated fourth-quarter revenue growth. The impact of foreign currency translation reduced reported revenue growth by 1.4%. Excluding the effect of these items, organic revenue growth of 11.4% was driven by all three business segments.

On a GAAP basis, fourth-quarter net income from continuing operations attributable to common shareholders was $59.7 million, compared to a net loss of $29.8 million for the same period in 2017. Fourth-quarter diluted earnings per share on a GAAP basis were $1.21, compared to a loss per share of $0.63 for the fourth quarter of 2017. The increase was primarily driven by last year’s GAAP loss per share that resulted from one-time expenses related to U.S. tax reform, which reduced earnings by $78.5 million, or $1.66 per share.

On a non-GAAP basis, net income from continuing operations was $73.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2018, an increase of 7.3% from $68.2 million for the same period in 2017. Fourth-quarter diluted earnings per share on a non-GAAP basis were $1.49, an increase of 6.4% from $1.40 per share for the fourth quarter of 2017.

The non-GAAP net income and earnings per share increases were driven primarily by higher revenue, including the contribution from the MPI acquisition, and operating margin improvement, as well as a lower tax rate. These increases were partially offset by higher interest expense and losses on the Company’s venture capital investments. The losses from the Company’s venture capital investments were $0.10 per share in the fourth quarter of 2018, compared to gains of $0.13 in the fourth quarter of 2017.
