"By providing best-in-class combined technology and service solutions and a clear line of site to a unified clinical research solution, we are getting a tremendous reception from the entire continuum of pharma and medical device companies. The industry is rapidly accepting that a new development paradigm is needed and that the new paradigm requires new solutions, i.e. BioClinica. Our second quarter financial results show the strength of our historical core medical imaging services combined with the ever-increasing acceptance of our new products and services. For the quarter we showed growth across the board, including: service revenue, gross margin on service revenue, operating income, net income and earnings per share, and we ended the quarter with a strong backlog of $112.5 million," said Mark L. Weinstein, President and CEO of BioClinica.
Mr. Weinstein added, "We continue to get tremendous traction on our Trident IVR/IWR product which we released in the fourth quarter of last year. Since its initial launch we have had 11 new clients involving 24 studies commit to the Trident platform for their IVR/IWR needs. Everyone that is introduced to Trident is very pleased with its unparalleled efficiency and accuracy."
"Similar to Trident, we are also beginning to see traction for our OnPoint CTMS, Clinical Trial Management System (‘CTMS') solution," he continued. "Initially oriented towards small- to medium- pharma companies, we are now seeing tremendous interest from major global pharmaceutical companies and medical device companies as well. OnPoint's tight integration with Microsoft® SharePoint enables users to interact with our CTMS solution via Microsoft Office applications (Outlook, Excel, Word, etc.), speeding user adoption and compliance. BioClinica's growth is not only attributed to our technologies that meet and exceed client demands, it is also the result of our agile and innovative staff, including our expert development organization that creates and supports these various technologies."
Mr. Weinstein concluded, "We intend to continue this momentum by broadening our client base and increasing the adoption of our products and services. With our strong backlog, and our continued strengthening of our suite of products and services, we remain on track to achieve our previously issued guidance. We are reiterating our expectations for full-year 2011 service revenues to be in the range of $66 to $70 million, our full-year GAAP EPS, including a restructuring charge of $0.06 per share, to be in the range of $0.16 to $0.21 per diluted share, and our full-year non-GAAP EPS to be in the range of $0.30 to $0.35 per diluted share."

Non-GAAP Financial Information
BioClinica is providing information on 2011 and 2010 non-GAAP income from operations, non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP diluted earnings per share that exclude certain items, as well as the related income tax effects, because of the nature of these items and the impact they have on the analysis of underlying business performance and trends. The non-GAAP information excludes, certain of which are recurring in nature, the impact of stock-based compensation, amortization of intangible assets related to acquisitions, restructuring charges and merger and acquisition costs. We believe the non-GAAP information provides supplemental information useful to investors in comparing our results of operations on a consistent basis from period to period. Management uses these non-GAAP measures in assessing our core operating performance and evaluating our ongoing business operations. These measures are not in accordance with, or an alternative for, generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. Therefore, the information may not necessarily be comparable to that of other companies and should be considered as a supplement to, not a substitute for, or superior to, the corresponding measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the comparable GAAP results, which are included below in this press release.
