Results of Operations and Financial Condition.
On April 13, 2021, Bruker Corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing unaudited preliminary revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2021. A copy of the press release is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
The financial results referred to in the press release are unaudited and preliminary estimates that (i) represent the most current information available to management as of the date of this Current Report on Form 8-K, (ii) are subject to completion of financial closing and procedures that could result in significant changes to the estimated amounts and (iii) do not present all information necessary for an understanding of the Company’s financial condition as of, and its results of operations for, the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2021. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed on these preliminary estimates. The Company expects to issue a press release announcing its final first quarter financial results after market close on May 5, 2021.
The information furnished in this Current Report on Form 8-K, including Exhibit 99.1, shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and shall not be incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
Any statements contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K or in Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto that do not describe historical facts may constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including statements regarding our preliminary first quarter 2021 revenue and performance. Any forward-looking statements contained herein are based on current expectations, but are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated, including, but not limited to, risks and uncertainties relating to the preliminary nature of our first quarter 2021 financial information, which is subject to completion of our quarter-end financial closing and procedures, and other risk factors discussed from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC. These and other factors are identified and described in more detail in our filings with the SEC, including, without limitation, our annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. We expressly disclaim any intent or obligation to update these forward-looking statements other than as required by law.
