Pacific Biosciences Reports Fourth Quarter 2014 Financial Results

MENLO PARK, Calif., Feb. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (Nasdaq:PACB) today reported an 85% increase in revenue to $16.9 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2014, compared to $9.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2013.

Fourth quarter 2014 revenue reflects the delivery of 15 PacBio® RS II Sequencing instruments, compared to five instruments during the fourth quarter of 2013. The Company also booked orders for 10 instruments during the period, ending the quarter with 15 in backlog.

Gross profit increased $1.2 million to $4.4 million for the quarter, resulting in a gross margin of 26.3%, compared to gross profit of $3.2 million and a gross margin of 34.9% for the fourth quarter of 2013. Higher revenue in the fourth quarter of 2014 led to the increase in gross profit, while the higher mix of revenue from instruments, which has lower margins than other revenue segments, led to the decrease in gross margin.

Operating expenses totaled $22.3 million for the quarter, compared to $20.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2013. Operating expenses for the fourth quarters of 2014 and 2013 included non-cash stock-based compensation of $2.7 million and $2.4 million, respectively.

The net loss for the quarter was $19.0 million, compared to $17.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2013.

Cash and investments at December 31, 2014 totaled $101.3 million, compared to $112.5 million at December 31, 2013.
