Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. Receives Expected NYSE Notice Regarding Late Form 10-K Filing

HERCULES, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: BIO and BIOb), a global leader of life
science research and clinical diagnostic products, today announced that
it had received an expected notice from the New York Stock Exchange (the
“NYSE”) stating that the Company is not in compliance with the NYSE’s
continued listing requirements under the timely filing criteria
established in Section 802.01E of the NYSE Listed Company Manual due to
the Company’s delay in filing its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the
fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 (the “2018 Form 10-K”).

As previously disclosed, the reason for the delay is the additional time
needed by Bio-Rad to complete its year-end procedures, including its
assessment of the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over
financial reporting as of December 31, 2018. Bio-Rad intends to file its
2018 Form 10-K as promptly as possible after its independent registered
public accounting firm completes its audit.

In accordance with NYSE rules, Bio-Rad has contacted the NYSE to discuss
the status of the late filing and is issuing this required press
release. The NYSE informed Bio-Rad that under NYSE rules Bio-Rad will
have six months from the Form 10-K due date to file the 2018 Form 10-K
with the SEC. Bio-Rad can regain compliance with the NYSE listing
standards at any time prior to that date by filing its 2018 Form 10-K.
