Beckman assimilates Coulter in quarterly results
This article was originally published in Clinica
In the first full quarter following the acquisition of Coulter by Beckman Instruments, the combined company Beckman Coulter had sales of $399 million. This represents a 72% increase on Beckman's first quarter in 1997. As a private company, Coulter only revealed annual figures of $700 million for the full year in 1996. Currency effects lowered sales by some 5%. The figures include only two months of Coulter's international sales to synchronise the two companies' accounting systems.
