BURLINGTON, N.C., Oct. 24, 2019LabCorp® (or the Company) (NYSE: LH) today announced results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019, and updated 2019 guidance.

“LabCorp delivered another excellent quarter, with solid results driven by strong demand across both businesses,” said David P. King, chairman and CEO of LabCorp. “The enterprise posted robust gains in revenue and adjusted earnings per share, and we generated $363 million in free cash flow as we continued to weave the two businesses together into a powerful unified whole. We continued our disciplined capital allocation program, repurchasing $100 million of shares and successfully executing several tuck-in acquisitions. Covance excelled across all measures and, despite the market headwinds we are experiencing, Diagnostics turned in another impressive performance. We occupy a unique, differentiated market position in life sciences, giving us great optimism about our opportunity to grow the business and create shareholder value for the rest of 2019 and for many years to come.”
