- Total revenues were $31.5 million compared to $29.7 million in the second quarter of 2013.
- Reported GAAP EPS of $(0.20) per share compared to $(0.05) per share in the second quarter of 2013.

- Received CLIA waiver designation for Sofia® diagnostic test for Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV).
Second Quarter 2014 Results
Total revenues for the second quarter of 2014 rose 6% to $31.5 million compared to $29.7 million in the second quarter of 2013. The increase in revenue was due to greater sales of Infectious Disease products in the second quarter of 2014, as well as growth in all other product segments.
Infectious Disease products grew 5% in the quarter as growth was achieved in all major categories. Total influenza product sales in the second quarter increased 17% to $3.8 million, the result of a 49% increase in international influenza orders.
"Despite the weak demand for flu products in the U.S. that persisted well into April, we did realize year-over-year growth across all major categories, thanks in large part to our new products, as well as our international business," said Douglas Bryant, president and CEO of Quidel Corporation. "Our major product development programs are tracking to schedule, and in the quarter, we also received a couple regulatory clearances from the FDA that we believe can provide incremental near-term growth opportunities."
In the quarter, total costs and expenses were $41.5 million as compared to $36.7 million in the second quarter of 2013. Cost of Sales increased $2.2 million, the result of higher sales, unfavorable product mix and higher Sofia depreciation cost. R&D expense increased in the second quarter versus last year due to the added investment in Savanna, somewhat offset by the $0.4 million expense reimbursement from Life Technologies relating to the R&D collaboration agreement signed in March of 2012. The Company also realized $0.9 million in rebates from a key service provider on the Savanna project. Sales and Marketing expense increased by $2.3 million in the second quarter, due to an increase in sales personnel in the second quarter of 2014, as compared to the second quarter of 2013.
Net loss for the second quarter of 2014 was $6.9 million, or $(0.20) per share, compared to net loss of $1.8 million, or $(0.05) per share, for the second quarter of 2013. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding amortization of intangibles, stock compensation expense and certain non-recurring items, net loss for the second quarter of 2014 was $3.4 million, or $(0.10) per share, compared to $1.9 million, or $(0.06) per share, for the same period in 2013.
Results for the Six Months Ended June 30, 2014
Total revenues were $78.2 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2014, compared to $91.7 million for the same period in 2013. The decrease in revenue was primarily driven by softer demand for Infectious Disease products in the first quarter due to a weaker respiratory disease season in 2014, relative to the same period in 2013.
For the six-month period ended June 30, 2014, total costs and expenses were $90.2 million as compared to $81.3 million over the same period in 2013. Cost of Sales for the six month period ended June 30, 2014 increased by $2.9 million over the same six month period in 2013 mostly due to the mix of products. For the first six months of 2014, Sales and Marketing expense increased by $3.8 million, due to the expansion and training of a larger sales force in 2014 relative to 2013. R&D expense in the first half of 2014 increased by $1.7 million due to the addition of BioHelix and AnDiaTec R&D costs, as well as increased expense for the development of the Savanna platform.
For the six-month period in 2014, net loss was $8.4 million, or $(0.25) per share, compared to net income of $10.6 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, for the same six-month period in 2013. On a non-GAAP basis, excluding amortization of intangibles, stock compensation expense and certain non-recurring items, net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was $0.5 million, or $(0.01) per share, compared to net income of $14.7 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, for the first six months in 2013.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
