Veracyte Announces Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Nov 2, 2022

Grew Total Revenue to $75.6 million, an Increase of 25% Conference Call and Webcast Today at 4:30 p.m. ET November 02, 2022 04:05 PM Eastern Daylight Time SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--( BUSINESS WIRE )--Veracyte, Inc. (Nasdaq: VCYT) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022. “Our third quarter results were robust given test adoption growth across our key products, new reimbursement contracts and expanded clinical evidence for our tests,” said Marc Stapley, Veracyte’s chief executive officer. “We continue to invest in our long-term growth drivers, while maintaining our firm focus on financial discipline. I’m delighted with our team’s progress as we pursue our global vision of improving outcomes for patients all over the world through our exceptional diagnostic tests.” Key Business Highlights: Increased third quarter total revenue by 25% to $75.6 million, compared to the third quarter of 2021. Grew total test volume to 26,374, an increase of 26% compared to the third quarter of 2021. Bolstered commercial reimbursement: Received positive coverage decisions for the Decipher Prostate Genomic Classifier from three commercial payers representing over 20 million members, bringing the total number of covered lives for the test to 195 million; and Signed four new commercial payer contracts for the Afirma Genomic Sequencing Classifier, bolstering the test’s in-network coverage to over 230 million health plan members. Further reinforced the value and utility of our portfolio offerings through guideline inclusion and expanded clinical evidence: Received a “Level 1” evidence designation in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network® (NCCN®)’s update to the 2023 prostate cancer guidelines, making the Decipher Prostate Genomic Classifier the first and only prostate cancer gene expression test to achieve this status; Published data from a prospective, multi-site, Phase 2 clinical study in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute suggesting that the Decipher Prostate test may help identify African American men with early, localized prostate cancer who are most likely to harbor aggressive disease; Shared data from Phase 3 of the multi-center, randomized STAMPEDE trial at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) conference, which confirm the Decipher Prostate test’s ability to identify men with advanced prostate cancer who are more likely to benefit from intensified treatment, potentially expanding the test’s use; Presented data at the American Thyroid Association’s annual meeting suggesting that Veracyte’s Afirma thyroid database and whole-transcriptome capabilities may enable identification of genomic signatures to help predict tumor behavior in thyroid cancer; Presented data at the European Respiratory Society and American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST 2022) annual meetings suggesting the Envisia Genomic Classifier’s ability to provide prognostic information for people with suspected interstitial lung disease; Published a study in Nature Medicine examining the predictive and prognostic potential of Veracyte’s immuno-oncology biomarkers and insight into factors associated with response to CAR T-cell therapy among patients with large B-cell lymphoma; and Presented preliminary clinical utility data at the CHEST meeting for the Percepta Nasal Swab test, which suggest that the noninvasive genomic test may classify more lung nodule patients as low-risk or high-risk for lung cancer, as compared to the standard-of-care approach, which consists of a physician’s own assessment of clinical factors along with CT imaging. Appointed Eliav Barr, M.D., to our Board of Directors and named John Leite, Ph.D. as general manager for Pulmonology and Market Access.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures In addition to the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), this press release and the accompanying tables contain, and reference certain non‐GAAP results including non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating expenses, and non-GAAP loss from operations. These measures are not meant to be considered superior to or a substitute for financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, and investors are cautioned that there are material limitations associated with the use of non-GAAP financial measures as an analytical tool. We use non-GAAP measures to internally evaluate and analyze financial results. We believe these non-GAAP financial measures provide investors with useful supplemental information about the financial performance of our business, enable comparison of financial results between periods where certain items may vary independent of business performance, and enable comparison of our financial results with other public companies, many of which present similar non-GAAP financial measures. However, the non-GAAP measures we present may be different from those used by other companies. We exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets, acquisition-related expenses relating to our acquisitions of Decipher Biosciences and HalioDx and certain costs related to restructuring from certain of our non-GAAP measures. Management has excluded the effects of these items in non-GAAP measures to help investors gain a better understanding of the core operating results and future prospects of the company, consistent with how management measures and forecasts the company's performance, especially when comparing such results to previous periods or forecasts. The company encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non‐GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand its business. Reconciliations between our GAAP results and non‐GAAP financial measures are presented in the tables of this release. VERACYTE, INC.   1.
