Sigma-Aldrich (Nasdaq: SIAL) Annual Sales Surpass $2 Billion Mark.
Date:2/12/2008

ssed as a percentage of sales, and the effective tax rate, expressed as a percentage of pretax income, for the fourth quarters and full years 2007 and 2006, were as follows:

Fourth Quarter Full Year

2007 2006 2007 2006

Gross profit 49.8% 50.4% 50.8% 51.2%

S,G&A expenses 24.7% 26.2% 25.4% 25.8%

Operating income 22.2% 21.4% 22.5% 22.4%

Pretax income 21.3% 20.1% 21.5% 21.1%

Effective tax rate 25.1% 23.4% 28.9% 26.9%

Operating and pretax income margins improved for both Q4 and full year 2007. Lower S,G&A expense levels more than compensated for modest gross profit declines in the quarter and the full year 2007. The lower gross profit margins in Q4 2007 compared to the level achieved in Q4 2006 resulted largely from the ongoing and anticipated impact of the February 2007 acquisition of Epichem and its higher cost levels relative to our base business and from costs to ramp up production levels to support higher current and expected sales growth levels. These factors were only partially offset by increased pricing and favorable impacts from both volume and product mix.

The higher effective tax rate for Q4 2007 compared to the same period in 2006 reflects the reinstatement of the U.S. R&D tax credits for all of 2006 in Q4 2006 and the expiration of the U.S. export tax benefits in 2006, partially offset by an increase in the U.S. manufacturing deduction and a lower level of international taxes in 2007. The higher effective tax rate for the full year of 2007 compared to 2006 reflects the absence of a net benefit from audit activity in 2007 and expiring U.S. export tax benefits in 2006, partially offset by an increase in the U.S. manufacturing deduction and reduced international tax
