Burlington, NC, October 24, 2018 -
LabCorp® (or the Company) (NYSE: LH) today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018, and updated its 2018 guidance.

“We are pleased with our performance in the quarter, highlighted by excellent results in our Covance Drug Development business and solid results in LabCorp Diagnostics,” said David P. King, chairman and chief executive officer. “Covance delivered growth in net orders, a strong book to bill and significant margin expansion, while Diagnostics continued its consistent organic revenue and volume growth. In addition, we made progress on our three strategic objectives, and initiated LaunchPad Phase II in Diagnostics to continue streamlining the business and reducing the fixed cost base. Despite the dynamically changing market, we have two strong businesses, outstanding cash flow and a strong balance sheet, positioning us well to deliver growth for the balance of this year and in the years ahead.”

Effective January 1, 2018, the Company adopted the FASB-issued converged standard on revenue recognition (ASC 606), using the full retrospective method. Unless otherwise indicated, all financial results in 2017 and comparisons to financial results in 2017 have been restated in this press release as if the Company had adopted ASC 606 on January 1, 2017.
