Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Friday, May 3, 2019

MENLO PARK, Calif., May 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (NASDAQ: PACB) today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2019, as attached.

During the first quarter of 2019, the Company announced that it commenced its Early Access Program of the Sequel II System and the SMRT Cell 8M chip with five early access sites. All five early access sites successfully tested the new Sequel II System across a wide variety of customer samples with positive results, and all five sites have since purchased their initial Sequel II Systems. On April 24, 2019, the Company announced the commercial launch of the Sequel II System, and has begun installing Sequel II Systems at additional customer sites.

On November 1, 2018, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Illumina, Inc. (“Illumina”) and FC Ops Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Illumina (the “Merger Agreement”) pursuant to which Illumina will acquire the Company for $8.00 per share of the Company’s common stock in an all-cash transaction and FC Ops Corp. will be merged with and into the Company (the “Merger”), with the Company surviving the Merger and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Illumina. Completion of the transaction is subject to terms and conditions set forth in the Merger Agreement, including expiration or termination of any waiting periods applicable to the consummation of the Merger under the United States Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended, and clearance under the antitrust laws of certain non-U.S. jurisdictions. The Merger has been notified to the United States Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) and to the Competition and Markets Authority of the United Kingdom (“CMA”). The Company and Illumina continue to expect the merger to be completed in mid-2019. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company recognized approximately $5.7 million in operating expenses in connection with the Merger.

No Conference Call

Given the pending Merger with Illumina, management will not be hosting a conference call to discuss its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2019 and does not expect to do so for future quarters.
