Bruker Corporation (Nasdaq: BRKR) today announced financial results for its fourth quarter and for the full year ended December 31, 2023.

Bruker’s President and CEO Frank Laukien commented: “Bruker’s transformation into a fast-growth company is on track after three consecutive years of double-digit organic revenue growth. Remarkably, in 2023 our industry-leading 14.5% organic revenue growth included double-digit growth from each of our four groups. For the full year 2023, we also delivered 10.3% non-GAAP EPS growth, while investing significantly in R&D, capacity and productivity. This shows the resiliency of our innovation model and exemplifies our focus on disciplined entrepreneurialism.”

Dr. Laukien continued: “Demand for our innovative and differentiated products and solutions has remained solid, as Bruker emerges as a leader in the post-genomic era – a powerful new secular growth trend. For fiscal year 2024, we again expect to achieve well above-market organic revenue and non-GAAP EPS growth.”

Q4 2023 Bruker Energy & Supercon Technologies (BEST) revenues of $75.2 million increased 27.7% yoy, with organic revenue growth, net of intercompany eliminations, of 20.3%.

Q4 2023 GAAP operating income was $103.5 million, compared to $131.0 million in Q4 2022. Non-GAAP operating income was $154.5 million in Q4 2023, compared to $148.9 million in Q4 2022. Bruker’s Q4 2023 non-GAAP operating margin was 18.1%, a decrease of ~ 290 basis points from 21.0% in Q4 2022. Q4 2023 pro forma non-GAAP operating margin excluding the PhenomeX acquisition was 20.6%.

Q4 2023 GAAP diluted earnings per share (EPS) were $1.41, compared to $0.66 in Q4 2022. Q4 2023 GAAP EPS included a $0.99 per share gain on the PhenomeX acquisition1.

[1] In Q4 2023, Bruker recorded a GAAP gain of $144.1 million, or $0.99 per share, in connection with the PhenomeX acquisition, which closed on October 2, 2023. This ‘bargain purchase gain’ reflects the excess of identifiable net assets acquired, including deferred tax assets related to acquired tax NOLs, over the purchase consideration paid.

Fiscal Year 2024 Outlook

Bruker expects FY 2024 revenues of $3.23 to $3.29 billion, or 9% to 11% yoy reported revenue growth, including yoy contributions from:

  • Organic revenue growth of 5% to 7%
  • Constant exchange rate (CER) revenue growth of 8% to 10%, with M&A[2] contributions of ~3%
  • Foreign currency translation tailwind of ~1%

Bruker expects FY 2024 non-GAAP EPS of $2.71 to $2.76, or 5% to 7% growth yoy.

Bruker’s revenue and non-GAAP EPS guidance are based on foreign currency exchange rates as of January 31, 2024.

For the Company’s outlook for 2024 organic revenue growth, M&A revenue growth, constant exchange rate revenue growth, and non-GAAP EPS, we are not able to provide without unreasonable effort the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, or reconciliations to such GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis. Please see “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” below for a description of items excluded from our expected non-GAAP EPS.

[2] FY 2024 guidance excludes M&A transactions that have not yet closed, regardless of any earlier announcement, including Chemspeed and ELITech.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP gross profit; non-GAAP gross profit margin; non-GAAP operating income; non-GAAP operating profit; non-GAAP operating margin; non-GAAP SG&A expense; non-GAAP interest and other income (expense), net, non-GAAP profit before tax; non-GAAP tax rate; non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share. These non-GAAP measures exclude costs related to restructuring actions, acquisition and related integration expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets and other non-operational costs.

We also may refer to organic revenue growth or decline, free cash flow or use, return on invested capital and non-GAAP earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) which are also non-GAAP financial measures. We define the term organic revenue as GAAP revenue excluding the effect of changes in foreign currency translation rates and the effect of acquisitions and divestitures, and believe it is a useful measure to evaluate our continuing business. [We define the term M&A revenue as GAAP revenue from M&A activities [excluding the effect of changes in foreign currency translation rates], and believe it is a useful measure to evaluate the effect of acquisitions on our operations.] We define the term constant-exchange rate (CER) currency revenue as GAAP revenue excluding the effect of changes in foreign currency translation rates. We define free cash flow as net cash provided by operating activities less additions to property, plant, and equipment. We believe free cash flow is a useful measure to evaluate our business because it indicates the amount of cash generated after additions to property, plant, and equipment that is available for, among other things, acquisitions, investments in our business, repayment of debt and return of capital to shareholders. We define return on invested capital (ROIC) as non-GAAP operating profit after income tax divided by average total capital, which we define as debt plus equity minus cash and cash equivalents. We believe ROIC is an important measure of how effectively the Company invests its capital. We define non-GAAP EBITDA as non-GAAP net income adjusting out the effects of interest expense, net, non-GAAP income tax expense and GAAP depreciation and amortization, with purchased intangible amortization already adjusted out of non-GAAP net income. We believe non-GAAP EBITDA is an important means of comparing profitability of comparable companies.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, and therefore, may not be comparable among companies. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding our performance, however, we urge investors to review the reconciliation of these financial measures to the comparable GAAP financial measures included in the accompanying tables, and not to rely on any single financial measure to evaluate our business. Specifically, management believes that the non-GAAP measures mentioned above provide relevant and useful information which is widely used by analysts, investors and competitors in our industry, as well as by our management, in assessing both consolidated and business unit performance.

We use these non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate our period-over-period operating performance because our management believes this provides a more comparable measure of our continuing business by adjusting for certain items that are not reflective of the underlying performance of our business. These measures may also be useful to investors in evaluating the underlying operating performance of our business and forecasting future results. We regularly use these non-GAAP financial measures internally to understand, manage, and evaluate our business results and make operating decisions. We also measure our employees and compensate them, in part, based on certain non-GAAP measures and use this information for our planning and forecasting activities.

Additional information relating to the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release and reconciliations to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are provided in the tables accompanying this press release following our GAAP financial statements.

With respect to our outlook for 2024 non-GAAP organic revenue, non-GAAP M&A revenue, non-GAAP constant exchange rate (CER) revenue, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP EPS and non-GAAP tax rate, we are not providing the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures or corresponding reconciliations to such GAAP financial measures on a forward-looking basis, because we are unable to predict with reasonable certainty certain items that may affect such measures calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP without unreasonable effort. Our expected non-GAAP organic revenue, operating margin, tax rate and EPS ranges exclude primarily the future impact of restructuring actions, unusual gains and losses, acquisition-related expenses and purchase accounting fair value adjustments. These reconciling items are uncertain, depend on various factors outside our management’s control and could significantly impact, either individually or in the aggregate, our future period operating margins, EPS and tax rate calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP.

Forward-Looking Statements

Any statements contained in this press release which do not describe historical facts may constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including statements regarding our fiscal year 2024 financial outlook, our outlook for reported revenue growth, organic revenue growth, M&A revenue growth contributions, constant exchange rate (CER) currency revenue growth, foreign currency translation revenue impact, non-GAAP operating margin, non-GAAP EPS and non-GAAP tax rate; management’s expectations for the impact of foreign currency and acquisitions, expectations regarding the benefits of our acquisition of PhenomeX Inc.; and for future financial and operational performance and business outlook; future economic conditions; the duration and impact of supply chain and geopolitical challenges; strategic investments; and statements found under the “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” section of this release.

These and other factors are identified and described in more detail in our filings with the SEC, including, without limitation, our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022, as may be updated by our quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. We expressly disclaim any intent or obligation to update these forward-looking statements other than as required by law.
