Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2020 Financial Results
Wednesday, May 6, 2020
MENLO PARK, Calif., May 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (NASDAQ: PACB) today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2020.
As previously announced, in January 2020, we and Illumina mutually agreed to terminate the Agreement and Plan of Merger (as amended, the “Merger Agreement”). As part of our agreement to terminate the Merger Agreement, Illumina paid us a $98.0 million reverse termination fee in January 2020, from which we paid our financial advisor associated fees of $6.0 million in April 2020, which is less than the amount we initially expected. The $98.0 million in cash we received from Illumina was recorded as a short-term liability for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 and is expected to be subsequently recorded as other income after September 30, 2020 when all contingency clauses are expected to lapse. In addition, during the first quarter ended March 31, 2020, as previously agreed to pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Illumina paid us cash payments (“Continuation Advances”) of $34.0 million, which resulted in a gain of $34.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.
Total revenue for the first quarter of 2020 was $15.6 million, compared with $16.4 million for the first quarter of 2019. Instrument revenue for the first quarter of 2020 was $4.0 million, compared with $5.6M for the first quarter of 2019. Consumables revenue for the first quarter of 2020 was $8.3 million compared with $7.8 million for the first quarter of 2019. Service and other revenue for the first quarter of 2020 was $3.3 million compared with $3.0 million for the first quarter of 2019.
Gross profit for the first quarter of 2020 was $7.5 million, resulting in a gross margin of 48.0%. Gross profit for the first quarter of 2019 was $5.1 million, resulting in a gross margin of 31.2%.
Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2020 totaled $40.2 million, compared to $35.3 million for the first quarter of 2019. Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2020 included the $6.0 million financial advisor associated fees mentioned above. Operating expenses for the first quarter of 2020 and 2019 included non-cash stock-based compensation of $3.5 million and $3.9 million, respectively.
Net income for the first quarter of 2020 was $1.3 million, driven by the Continuation Advances of $34.0 million we received from Illumina, compared to a net loss of $30.3 million for the first quarter of 2019. Basic and diluted net income per share for the first quarter of 2020 was $0.01 per share as compared to basic and diluted net loss per share for the first quarter of 2019 of $0.20 per share.
In February 2020, upon the maturity of the debt, we repaid the remaining outstanding principal of $16.0 million and interest to Deerfield. Cash, cash equivalents and investments, excluding restricted cash, at March 31, 2020 totaled $142.6 million, compared to $49.1 million at December 31, 2019.
Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic
We have implemented various measures to help protect our employees while continuing to support our customers. In accordance with local and state guidelines, a large number of our Menlo Park-based employees are working remotely from their homes. Additionally, we have implemented health and safety practices in accordance with evolving government and public health agency guidelines. However, as Pacific Biosciences is a designated essential business, we continue to provide direct support to our customers, including those customers working on COVID-19 related research, testing, treatment, and prevention. This support includes consumable and instrument shipments, field support, and limited wet-lab activities.
Financial results for the first quarter of 2020 were negatively impacted as our customers in multiple regions around the world shut down most of their operations in efforts to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, multiple customers postponed deliveries of systems they had previously ordered from us, resulting in lower instrument revenues for the first quarter of 2020 compared to the first quarter of 2019. Due to the uncertain scope and duration of the pandemic, we cannot reasonably estimate the future impact to our operations and financial results.
As noted above, there were provisions in the Merger Agreement to provide us with significant funding in the event that the merger did not close. As a result, we ended the first quarter of 2020 with $142.6 million in Cash and Investments. However, we will continue to monitor our operating expenses and cash flows in response to the evolving market conditions.
