WALTHAM, Mass., July 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (NYSE: TMO), the world leader in serving science, today announced that, based on currently available information, it estimates that both reported and organic revenue1 growth will be approximately 10% for the second quarter ended June 27, 2020.
The better-than-expected organic revenue growth was primarily driven by strong global sales of PCR-based tests and other products and services supporting the COVID-19 response, which contributed more than $1.4 billion of revenue in the second quarter and reflects the scale of the company's role in helping customers battle the pandemic.
Thermo Fisher will release its financial results for the second quarter on Wednesday, July 22, 2020, before the market opens, and will hold a conference call to discuss those results and provide a business update on the same day at 8:30 a.m. ET.
