Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

MENLO PARK, Calif., April 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (NASDAQ:PACB) today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Product and service revenue for the first quarter of 2017 increased by 60% to $24.9 million, compared to $15.5 million for the first quarter of 2016. Revenue for the first quarter of 2017 was comprised of product, service and other revenue of $24.9 million, up 30% compared to $19.1 million for the first quarter of 2016. Revenue for the first quarter of 2016 included $3.6 million of contractual revenue, whereas the first quarter of 2017 included no contractual revenue. 

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2017 was $8.9 million, resulting in a gross margin of 35.9%.  During the first quarter of 2017, the Company recorded a $1.3 million charge to cost of revenue relating to RS II instruments primarily due to a change in the estimated useful life of these instruments.
Excluding this charge, adjusted gross margin for the first quarter of 2017 would have been 41.0%. Gross profit for the first quarter of 2016 was $9.5 million, resulting in a gross margin of 49.7%. This included $3.6 million of contractual revenue at 100% gross margin. Excluding this contractual revenue, adjusted gross margin for the first quarter of 2016 would have been 38.0%. Adjusted gross margin is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for gross margin. Adjusted gross margin is subject to limitations, and should be read only in conjunction with the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2017 totaled $32.2 million, compared to $28.1 million for the first quarter of 2016. Operating expenses for the first
quarter of 2017 and 2016 included non-cash stock-based compensation of $4.5 million and $4.1 million, respectively.
