Illumina Cuts FY Forecast; Shares Tank 22%

Shares of Illumina, Inc. (ILMN) tanked over 22% in extended trading session on Thursday after the company lowered its outlook for the full year.

The company now expects full-year revenue to grow 4% to 5%, loss of $2.93 to $2.78 per share and adjusted earnings of $2.75 to $2.90 per share.

Previously, the company expected revenue guidance growth of 14% to 16%, earnings of $2.33 to $2.53 per share and adjusted earnings of $4.00 to $4.20 per share.

"Our second quarter results did not meet our expectations as challenges in a complex macroeconomic environment more than offset the growth we continue to see in sequencing runs on our platforms," said CEO Francis deSouza.
