Earnings increased 10.5 percent in the second quarter of this year compared with last year for Laboratory Corp., matching Wall Street expectations.
LabCorp, a provider of various medical testing services, said Tuesday it earned profits of $128.7 million, or $1.05 a share, on revenues of $1.04 billion. Revenues were up 15 percent compared with the same quarter in 2006.
