LANSING, Mich., July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Neogen Corporation (NASDAQ: NEOG) announced today that revenues for its 2014 fiscal year, which ended May 31, increased 19% from the previous year to $247,405,000. Fiscal year net income was $28,158,000, compared to the prior year's $27,190,000. Adjusted for a 3-for-2 stock split effective Oct. 30, 2013, earnings per share in the current year were $0.76, compared to $0.75 a year ago. Both revenues and net income for the 2014 fiscal year established new all-time highs for the 32-year-old company.
Neogen's fourth quarter revenues were $67,262,000, a 20% increase over revenues from FY 2013's final quarter. Net income in the current fourth quarter was $7,537,000 compared to $7,032,000 in FY 2013, or $0.20 per share compared to $0.19 per share in FY 2013, when adjusted for the stock split.
The fourth quarter was the 89th quarter of the past 94 quarters that Neogen reported revenue increases as compared with the previous year — including all consecutive quarters in the last nine years.
"We are pleased to report another strong year for Neogen, especially in terms of revenue growth, operational strength, and increase in stockholders' equity," said James Herbert, Neogen's chief executive officer and chairman. "Our 23-year record of quarterly growth is a tradition our 900 plus employees are very proud of. Not only was this a good financial year, but we also made three acquisitions and developed a number of new products that will help position us to capitalize on growth opportunities in the markets we serve."
Neogen's gross margin was 49.6% of sales in its 2014 fiscal year, compared to 52.8% of sales for FY 2013. This decrease was due almost entirely to the change in the company's overall product mix. Total operating expenses, expressed as a percentage of total revenues, decreased to 32% in the 2014 fiscal ye
