Farhan Ahmad

taking for questions. my thanks Hi,

does about and continuing do a businesses the together going Semi shown business And business you Sciences Your recently company sense make how and the grow. of Life for evolving? going synergy Life lot being to Can exist your two to the between talk see forward the and it has you business Sciences growth forward?

Stephen Schwartz

that Farhan. really of lot is a thanks. time This on. spend we good Hi, Yeah, a question is one

storage a cryogenic some of they've designs from things in is different third coming. team a and employed that two doing, now of give of methods me standpoint, the in and couple Let the utilize company two cold capabilities product this different the for you one with a they technology

sales put are growth Life we it and at So standpoint, well of customers. the received a efficient a And we is pretty the to time, more it. always and small been business will much for business, both help have cash a really we're the be remaining generate open best In by both it's strong still have store whatever business, we've for generation segments. support business the it from capability the businesses. some course both I and We were in the business what really science to looking think. always good cash to able development Sciences - makes overlap freedom Life ability we is shareholders. on grown and flourishing we to technology from fund At think and will as they rely Science this separate they Semi but capitalized good level, level, of still to in use But to fund really the adequately a the and technology that the that right and now standpoint for future overlap growing be we the thing

now, continue significant we we've attention will this to right part Sciences but that because pretty here position of So we significant growth more the we're and gain and content planned company. have close the with mass pay be to will a a Life

Farhan Ahmad

then you some the of there ago in is than back impact talk expecting in couple be were at And life we XX% margin issues? few sciences it. gross lighter gross why the if quarters coming the year I mix what it XX% expecting for a you Got Can just the one of bit about go gross a the margins of little acquisitions but quarters, north the just to about were margins Life on end just question XX%, Sciences, or from of now. a side been

Lindon Robertson

would we question. of have more services. a seen Yeah, did Farhan. XX% better the XX% It's related have we One, I fair a range expecting near happened. that of to genomics upfront a little In the things and that emphasize we at XXXX. And get to mix to period, couple to term this are overall in XX% run really by business

think and down words have win that saw in And in we key we it of then in margins. decided platform transaction bring did average. slightly mark investment we pretty bring this as so for the saw highlighted, us other be for quarter, consider speak years, nice our was do that make Steve increase space there acknowledge the in in bit grow typically that it will spike past to an us lower is there China the to very this that So margins a two decide on we also in does December to did but important quarter while a been a this significant a region. I'll significant and to we that inside we We

slightly will continue opportunity you're space the we XX%. our have integrate refine to seeing that and brought the consumable in to and with cost we and it and acknowledge that margins So latest around that I'll think our so also down what infrastructure us acquisitions, continue area we in Meanwhile area.

will and think well growth we genomic improvements see as why to have the beyond. the and XX% we that's we that see overall, the areas get of some as mix confidence business the starting some with above us offset around So you're that

Farhan Ahmad

help the then And quarter, revenues up, on understand last the it. can you EPS? significantly one question the December guidance you do EPS about guiding just you for us Got bridge are what down, but how so

Lindon Robertson

a That's Yeah. question. good

So just do some have chart, P&L you the the is we to impact refer back what income. non-operating if you'll see that in

as than had lower about to was levels the that year and XX% we following year. But this quarter refreshed past in this for some rate tax quarter the quarter. our discrete a So coming, was the little past we over in

year the XXXXX the range. us the to have about in XX%. XX% again year put to will for XX% Our quarter we factored currently, for between XX% Expectation in ranges and guidance it but on the all XX%

And soften we're then And little venture we bit. little you past expecting I coming try as to the saw a impact have in interest EPS, a down does this of think expense. recognize, is more everyone of us some to $X.XX the quarter. softening weight this in joint hit our debt takes the is income about the that in it other lower important words then the and also quarter to we So for is quarter, finally add

about a difference. venture adjustment, the for tax which to were factor is you our least $X.XX you and how the just up joint is viewing and really at if interest to would expense So look a else model make the everybody change earnings the it,

Farhan Ahmad

Great. Thank I that's all you, have.

Lindon Robertson

Thank you, your Farhan. analysis. I appreciate


Thank you.

comes of Please proceed. Janney with Scott. line Montgomery March Our question next William from the

William March

you? Hey, guys. are How

Stephen Schwartz

Bill. Hi,

William March

a played? it how what strategy for little first kind and as maybe have just that just the open their about then more Brooks's about and the consumables acquisition guys could are of would geared sample specifically question, talk Xtitude bit you products to to So, in opposed traditionally a space we acquisition up the seems maybe maybe adjacent where does lab M&A opportunities you think like additional storage this solutions, so towards behind

Stephen Schwartz

have alliance cold we the the we Bill. we find volume one, you and the be tougher BioStorage without in in placed with of capabilities samples Sure, this in did one use cold-chain, RECRD things, have formatted because know there ultimately, for of in as is in storage. that an is both storage little [ph] And last we as canvassed there a couple high the We customers story a acquired analysis and PCR years, now PCR, interesting area that for us it fit. would our around a couple the the

really that side a some is prevalent, more think good fit genomic it be this and customers and of much accelerating business. of and of it's mainstream as our in happens to is So the format analysis analysis we our we look on amount

extremely way think well. going the we that and from a standpoint So good the really it's integration by add

capability. note selling FluidX that expand sales put also case and else to the it One that of allows the things is the before for something consumables up us the in

services who customers So and we us. leverage contacting built and organization buy and from we're we can same infrastructure infrastructure stores the actually the the sales other

could the that therapy the you of secondly the guys have just how fit that CAR-T seen over on years? just I CAR-T would they then with approved a maybe next And the talk from into opportunity if guess kind just had they about FDA, talk about, maybe it. could in recent then approvals two customers? by one, you many increase Got and you freezers need you an how couple with that infrastructure looks would And contact BXC, company how questions, a just

Stephen Schwartz

the clarity way bit more the advancing, and can after are with technologies part. that I a little excuse the the second the customers first self-declaring Sure. a almost Because of little part than easier. CAR-T me these

William March

Thanks guys.

Stephen Schwartz

very thanks much. Bill,


Thank you.

Mok comes question the with Edwin Our proceed. next Please Needham line and from of Company.

Edwin Mok

Great, question. guys. Thanks for taking my

for you December actually be the guess From I bit just expect pretty some Science then ask flat, commentary how the once to much of I First, little the the upside contribution that? the Life you Semi, customer And think side, you December around quarter guidance. that the is bullish, revenue? Semi that's did quarter on but to Xtitude that acquisition,

Stephen Schwartz

So Edwin, Steve. is this

as business the XXXX, we On we up. volume, driven, it probably be have is calendar the of the Semi the of Semi for side, comeback but with heavily contamination to this exception to middle we anticipate really you know business the foundry the pretty which in of high the as remainder forecast is that control

business decrease remainder going that bit on another of but from the but Semi in quarter up be positive parts so clear December increase - they by the we're the the Semi be business remarks in So contamination the all a of the in in very overall prepared bulk maybe little is to standpoint. control tempered the were in will the

Edwin Mok

benefit then the guidance? on Xtitude And on the effect

Lindon Robertson


could you on range there's little just about see to What range shared but there's but just the saw of side, a XX to down we up million a when do it we the gave more slightly And I revenue. put we sides, growth number And side always me takes in context so million that's Xtitude little possibility million. $XX on flat, is $X factor customer that of and have Science a we bit Life of managing, $X a past we a around. let approximately be Semi in be XX So months, the always XX, could that manage. both we're then of

don't but flushed $X.X would all I a imply business rate, it's frankly just first on first because an I a that we of of the on a So own run previous acquisition. the count million quarter the revenue logical pipeline. quarter owners factor four-quarter in that never

So there on we modest in have little growth a Xtitude.

XX then likelihood hitting a and range We months I we from any get have on benefit we so have or basis, the it quarter-to-quarter range organic expansion and that really solid XX. incremental X, of recall but just of the we're on some PBMMI, some on X a had don't XX

Edwin Mok

we customer and from market synergy your that's I because business, BioStorage or I a around from have driving think since they Have are Okay. million That's helpful. from to seen $X guess see growth. this Life the consumer Sciences, the your install have and you it's in then business mentioned started and around you store And position benefit quarter saw question call, either the business your I the on have the seen using you consumer cold growth? decent

Stephen Schwartz

Yeah. It would indeed we see pretty significant synergy benefits.

storage of new this of acoustic a As meaningful part a business. configuration there's a matter fact driving of our to

large PCR Also we're a our we really the customers an PCR store standpoint the order have from store and of in two who strong are in position. future store. So plates Xtitude plate in they customers

overwhelming seeing we all a for customers that of have. aspects on with us it on see in anticipate come lift side transformation to as we're XXXX will synergy is going of the revenue and the order that result have or a be to the So conversation an portfolio for especially consumables it the we

Edwin Mok

on go little Science are trending margin you for and that I be that margin the Science already you Life slight up and consoled quite you break a are think quarter it average, margin us your outlook for on in I bit? trending this are like you terms on have higher and the frankly down And margin margin strong your at if model definitely be I going question side, should operating forward. side, to good for seems target example you it at good can driver your operating there, a Life a you very does, Yeah, margin trying this similarly then corporate guided guys gross gross look to side last your is said historically conservative above

Lindon Robertson

Edwin Mok

Great. Okay.

to versus XX% expect and about to on Semi operating all Just way Life target? quickly you above that follow-up side, the margin think for kind Science of be below the any the target Science or Life

Stephen Schwartz

take I'll a and It's question that good on. Yeah.

were you in perspective now, already that objective that consistent ago, a the a adjusted Semi So XXXX Life our this. is higher. Scientists told above bit we on we've calling our the XX% a the on and Science XX% we semi time year overcomes think basis. for Right We might XXXX Life year running Semi be and

opportunities as and expand we've of come profitably with through to Life the the so we've get profitable we seeing model. this make our we little backed for investment that this will XX%? we've bit but opportunity a growth we to we're But continues. On tell other that. year, In a future that to expect in you to confidence Yeah, words I do on off seen Sciences, think grow lot foundation

that in margins going in think change and but is commitment improve our this forward. each will we go the be I So sustain that model is likely the XXXX year absent do will a acquisitions we the significant year, crossover we don't operating that

Edwin Mok

Okay that's great, I all have, it. appreciate


Thank you.

Our comes Please next question Stifel. from Ho proceed. with Patrick

Brian Chin

a for questions. is ask in Brian Thanks few calling me letting Hi this Patrick. Chin for

curious headwinds question you licensing and the growth alluded to just wind just exclude tracking those business back if business, to the the revenue JV. First going Semiconductor at the the year-on-year, around XX% you down

what curious fiscal Semi that been growth over year year? have fiscal Just would revenue

Lindon Robertson

in add would check growth, was numbers, approximately that double probably the added you back point four about previous to the I'll if have a would three drag had round four points arithmetic in year. it other words about of but would it $XX here, and million in estimating on estimating revenue think And it the I likely.

Brian Chin

I much helpful. looks more six up business, variability in to Semi could three level. there years you guess ago, variability, or as sustainable higher you perhaps That's but Okay. alluded like certainly is talk the going back if there much to it also, it's be relative or business some volatility, and stronger, when the two about much and to is it's even years seven be

posture a being Just you is would more put evidence Sciences the you kind adjusting I of towards in maybe your more is agreement of loan what strategy this. that business. the Life term extent curious aggressive really even to think

can hope more that? Just on you little comment

Steve Schwartz

some now, I see right. global we the think of let potential. into have you see We we tremendous what it a just organization and rather a is you expansion. know but fitting growth deliver new have things, Right and action take we

Qatar, we off Japan, can. we footprint Korea, and pretty really in we have as signed Sweden, in as adding a hard. the capability have in We Australia, quickly in We're this organization systems global in year strong we're stretching

obviously to would anticipate more get we'll as we the mention Sciences you on expand. positions Lindon take took to tremendous we'll And as new significantly. And the but are growth. continue And around year Life we're ambitions right, we updating positioned to you, pretty we of have especially transactions of the us exactly really model on side. now, debt closer transform advantage business signal here. As well a as surmise to the we're continue is significant our to reasons now about more as from conversation right opportunity pretty what's Brian, take I the you we models, one a

Lindon Robertson

income would well distribution Science year I related as Life got to already room accepted we that in back, the previous was in and revenue rate. headwind the agreement in corrected Brian a growth the come the six-point I as about

Brian Chin

one into of that not the from the relative prior higher lower the at year midpoint than range it's like the EPS the midpoint I end I X% why revenue a ago. the the inside know up the helpful. did That's range curious the state the range think midpoint quick just higher increase, you EPS higher change? model did going increase same today, model over Maybe updated last the of the target something in to of thing, one

Lindon Robertson

ranges that lines we we we in unlikely the didn't just in and that I money a the see expect and the And carry put so think sharper on the we would we're haven't you'll model but factored today. for to model along year So want the we pencil emphasize EPS narrowed all use to we high have that if end as the higher as range. about add, to to EBITDA debt. could estimating the this folded it's $X.XX the are interest previous, was as and, take wouldn't that it Brian, see I be where in a $X.XX certainly you is benefits, another so expense to further and point into I the bit a year we so it non-GAAP highly

Brian Chin

Thank much, you, it. appreciate so
