Genomic Health Announces First Quarter 2018 Financial Results and Reports Recent Business Progress

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Genomic Health, Inc. (NASDAQ: GHDX) today reported financial results and business progress for the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

"In the first quarter of 2018, we delivered 13 percent growth in revenue and delivered a non-GAAP profit demonstrating continued operating leverage for the 11th consecutive quarter of improved profitability," said Kim Popovits, chairman of the board, chief executive officer and president of Genomic Health. "We delivered a strong start to the year with multiple revenue drivers, including the implementation of PAMA and AJCC breast cancer staging criteria, and the recent strengthening of NCCN prostate cancer guidelines. With several additional catalysts on the near-term horizon, including ECOG's presentation of TAILORx results at ASCO and the anticipated finalization of the Medicare LCD for the Oncotype DX AR-V7 Nucleus Detect test, we expect strong revenue growth in the second half of the year."

Pre-606 Adjusted Revenue
Effective January 1, 2018, the company adopted the new ASC 606 accounting standard for revenue, using the modified retrospective method, which applies the new standard prospectively and does not impact prior years' financial statements. Since the as-reported 2017 quarterly and annual financial statements will not be restated to reflect the new accounting standard, the company has provided a supplemental financial schedule in the non-GAAP tables at the end of this release, reflecting an estimate of revenue as if the new standard had been applied as of January 1, 2017 referred to herein as "pre-606 adjusted revenue."  

First Quarter Financial Results
Total revenue was $92.6 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with pre-606 adjusted revenue of $82.3 million for the first quarter of 2017, an increase of 13 percent, and an increase of 12 percent on a non-GAAP constant currency basis. Revenue was $84.0 million in the first quarter of 2017. 

U.S. product revenue was $78.9 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with pre-606 adjusted revenue of $69.2 million for the first quarter of 2017, an increase of 14 percent. U.S. product revenue was $70.6 million in the first quarter of 2017. U.S. invasive breast revenue from Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score® tests was $71.0 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with U.S. invasive breast pre-606 adjusted revenue of $63.4 million for the first quarter of 2017, an increase of 12 percent. U.S. invasive breast revenue was $64.8 million in the first quarter of 2017. U.S. prostate test revenue from Oncotype DX® Genomic Prostate Score™ (GPS™) tests was $5.8 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2017, an increase of 75 percent.

International product revenue was $13.8 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with pre-606 adjusted revenue of $13.1 million for the first quarter of 2017, an increase of 5 percent, and a 1 percent increase on a non-GAAP constant currency basis. International product revenue was $13.4 million in the first quarter of 2017.

Net loss was $3.8 million, or $0.11 per share on a basic and diluted basis, in the first quarter of 2018, compared with a net loss of $0.8 million, or $0.02 per share on a basic and diluted basis, in the first quarter of 2017. Operating loss was $4.4 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with an operating loss of $2.8 million in the first quarter of 2017.

On a non-GAAP basis, excluding the $8.5 million one-time charge for the realignment of resources that was completed in the quarter and certain other one-time charges, net income was $4.6 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with a $2.8 million non-GAAP net loss in the first quarter of 2017. On a non-GAAP basis, operating income was $4.2 million in the first quarter of 2018, compared with a non-GAAP operating loss of $2.8 million in the first quarter of 2017.

More than 32,440 Oncotype™ test results were delivered in the first quarter of 2018, an increase of 3 percent, compared with more than 31,580 test results delivered in the same period in 2017. Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score tests delivered in the U.S. grew 4 percent in the first quarter of 2018 compared with the same period in 2017. Oncotype DX Genomic Prostate Score tests delivered in the U.S. grew 25 percent in the first quarter of 2018 compared with the same period in 2017. International tests delivered decreased by 7 percent compared with the same period in 2017 and represented approximately 22 percent of total test volume in the first quarter of 2018.

Cash and cash equivalents and short-term marketable securities at March 31, 2018 were $130.4 million, which included the fair value of the company's investment in marketable equity securities of $3.8 million, compared with $129.6 million at December 31, 2017, which included the fair value of the company's investment in marketable equity securities of $3.5 million.

Non-GAAP Disclosure
The company makes reference in this press release to "non-GAAP operating income (loss)" which excludes 2018 expenses resulting from the restructuring charges for the cessation of Oncotype SEQ, including the Oncotype SEQ Liquid Select™ test, and Oncotype SEQ product development and commercialization activities (restructuring charges). Additionally, the company references "non-GAAP net income (loss)" which excludes the Q1 2018 restructuring charges as well as fair value adjustments related to its collaborations with Biocartis and Cleveland Diagnostics in the first quarter of 2018 and the gain on sale of marketable equity securities in the first quarter of 2017. The company believes that excluding these items and their related tax effects from its financial results reflects operating results that are more indicative of the company's ongoing operating performance while improving comparability to prior periods, and, as such, may provide investors with an enhanced understanding of the company's past financial performance and prospects for the future. The company also considers the impact of foreign currency exchange rates on its global business as described in the constant currency table accompanying this press release. The company's management uses such non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate and assess its core operations and to make ongoing operating decisions. This information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for income (loss) from operations or net income (loss) information prepared in accordance with GAAP. An explanation and reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the tables accompanying this press release.

_________________

   

(1)

For the three months ended March 31, 2018, International revenue and total revenue is based on GAAP under ASC 606 and for the three months ended March 31, 2017, International revenue and total revenue is based on the Pre-606 Adjusted revenue on the following table.

(2)

Constant currency is a non-GAAP measure that is calculated by comparing the company's quarterly average foreign exchange rates for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017. The constant currency disclosures take current local currency revenue and translate it into U.S. dollars based upon the foreign currency exchange rates used to translate the local currency revenue for the applicable comparable period in the prior year, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current period. It does not include any other effect of changes in foreign currency rates on the company's results or business. The company believes this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors in assessing the operating performance of the business. This non-GAAP measure should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to GAAP measures.

Effective January 1, 2018, the company adopted new accounting guidance ASC Topic 606 ("ASC 606"), related to revenue from contracts with customers, using a modified retrospective method. Since the 2017 annual and quarterly financial statements will not be restated to reflect ASC 606, the company is providing this supplemental schedule to present 2017 revenue reflecting an estimate as if ASC 606 had been applied effective January 1, 2017. This Pre-606 adjusted revenue information is intended to provide investors with a basis for considering the potential directional impact the adoption of ASC 606 might have on the company's financial information that will be reported in 2018. The Pre-606 adjusted revenue information is provided only for illustrative purposes and does not constitute a restatement of the company's historical financial statements previously filed with the SEC, which should be considered by investors in their entirety as filed.
