- Reported GAAP EPS of $(0.20) per share compared to $(0.05) per share in the second quarter of 2013.

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.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...
