Milford, Massachusetts, January 28, 2014Waters Corporation (NYSE/WAT) reported fourth quarter 2013 sales of $565 million, an increase of 8% in comparison to sales of $522 million in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Commenting on the Companys 2013 performance, Douglas Berthiaume, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, A strong fourth quarter sales result brought our full-year 2013 constant currency sales growth to 5%. Through the year, the growth in our operating income was materially and adversely affected by foreign currency translation, principally the weaker Japanese yen. The strength in the fourth quarter of 2013 was broad based in terms of our key product lines and business segments and was highlighted by improved pharmaceutical demand accompanied by continued strength in global academic and industrial chemical end markets.
