17:18 EDTIDXXIDEXX announces FTC preliminary approval of consent agreement
IDEXX Laboratories announced that the commissioners of the U.S. FTC have preliminarily approved the consent agreement previously reached between the company and the staff of the FTC Bureau of Competition. Pursuant to FTC protocol, a proposed draft complaint and the proposed consent agreement, which includes a draft consent order, will be placed on public record for a 30-day comment period, after which the FTC will evaluate any public comment before finalizing the agreement and order. "While we admit no wrongdoing and continue to believe that our distribution practices do not violate the antitrust laws as these same practices have been upheld in previous litigation victories, this is another important step toward final resolution of the multi-year FTC investigation, which we now expect to occur early in 2013," the company said.

07:02 EDTIDXXIDEXX plans to move from hybrid to all-direct product distribution model in 2015
The comapny said, "Under this approach, we intend to take orders, ship product, invoice and receive payment, and recognize revenue for all rapid assay test kits and instrument consumables in the US, aligning with our direct model for instruments, reference lab services, and other CAG products and services... The change to an all-direct product distribution approach will allow a significant expansion in our direct sales coverage and capacity, including an estimated 40% increase in the Veterinary Diagnostic Consultant field sales role and a 60% increase in customer field call frequency. With this increase, we will be much better equipped to support our US veterinary customers' growth in the use of IDEXX diagnostics to provide the best medical care for their patients and clients. The change will result in an incremental annual $50 million to $55 million, or 5%, increase in our fast growing recurring diagnostic revenue, with accretive profit benefits that will scale over time, following the transition to the new model."
