TEMPLE CITY, Calif., May 03, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Fulgent Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLGT) (“Fulgent Genetics”, “Fulgent”, or the “Company”), a technology-based genetic testing company focused on transforming patient care in oncology, infectious and rare diseases, and reproductive health, today announced financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2022.

First Quarter 2022 Results:

  • Revenue of $320.3 million, versus $359.4 million in Q1 2021

  • Billable tests delivered approximately 3.2 million, versus 3.8 million in Q1 2021

  • Core Revenue excluding COVID-19 NGS1 testing grew 59% year-over-year to $25.1 million

  • GAAP income of $154.0 million, or $4.93 per share

  • Non-GAAP income of $158.7 million, or $5.08 per share

  • Adjusted EBITDA of $213.5 million

  • Cash from operations of $188.4 million

  • Cash, cash equivalents, and investments in marketable securities of $1.1 billion as of March 31, 20222

Notes:

1) COVID-19 NGS testing was included in “Core Revenue” in 2021 and is now excluded from “Core Revenue”, and included in “COVID-19 Revenue”, as of Q1 2022.

2) Excludes the impact of $170 million in cash paid for the acquisition of Inform Diagnostics, which closed on April 26, 2022.

Non-GAAP income (loss) and adjusted EBITDA are described below under “Note Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and are reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, GAAP income (loss), in the accompanying tables.

Ming Hsieh, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We had a strong start to 2022 and again exceeded our expectations for both core revenue and COVID-19 revenue in the first quarter. Our recent acquisition of Inform Diagnostics, which closed in late April, marks an important strategic milestone for Fulgent as we believe it gives us the opportunity to drive meaningful incremental growth in core revenue in the quarters and years ahead. We expect to benefit from a number of operational and commercial synergies from this acquisition while bringing Inform Diagnostics’ extensive menu of pathology tests to the Fulgent platform. This acquisition is our largest to date and reflects our commitment to leveraging our large cash position to drive long-term shareholder value through acquisitions and strategic partnerships on top of consistent organic growth. As our business focus continues to shift away from COVID-19 testing, we are pleased with the strides we are making to drive sustainable growth in our core business in the years ahead.”

Paul Kim, Chief Financial Officer, said, “We are pleased with our first quarter results which reflect strong growth in our core business excluding COVID-19 NGS testing, which grew 59% year-over-year, as well as heightened demand for COVID-19 testing in the first half of the quarter driving better than expected results. We believe the acquisition of Inform Diagnostics will be a meaningful catalyst for our business, driving revenue contribution from day one while creating a number of synergistic strategic opportunities for Fulgent long-term. Despite our ongoing investments, we remain extremely well capitalized with a growing cash position to capture potential future opportunities. We have turned our attention to the integration and ramp of our expanding core initiatives, including the launch of our new West Coast oncology lab, which we announced today, and look forward to driving sustainable growth in our core revenue in the quarters ahead. As a result of the aggressive investments associated with our acquisition integrations, sales force ramp and geographic operational expansion, combined with our conservative assumptions around the considerable decline in future demand for COVID-19 testing, we have trimmed our EPS estimates for the full year. We will be providing a formal update during our investment community conference call to shortly follow the issuance of this press release.”

Outlook:

For the second quarter of 2022, Fulgent Genetics expects:

  • Total Revenue of approximately $125 million

  • Core Revenue of approximately $40 million, representing growth of 78% year-over-year

For the full year 2022, Fulgent Genetics now expects:

  • Total Revenue of approximately $660 million, compared to previous guidance of $600 million

  • Core Revenue of approximately $180 million, compared to previously updated guidance of $175 million

  • Non-GAAP income of approximately $6.00 per share, compared to previous guidance of $7.00 per share

Fulgent has not reconciled its expectations as to non-GAAP income per share to their most directly comparable GAAP measure because certain items are out of Fulgent’s control or cannot be reasonably predicted. Accordingly, a reconciliation for forward-looking non-GAAP income per share is not available without unreasonable effort.

Conference Call Information

Fulgent Genetics will host a conference call for the investment community today at 4:30 PM ET (1:30 PM PT) to discuss its first quarter 2022 results. Press and industry analysts are invited to attend in listen-only mode.

The call can be accessed through a live audio webcast in the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website, http://ir.fulgentgenetics.com, and through a live conference call by dialing (888) 394-8218 using the confirmation code 3761353.

Note Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Certain information set forth in this press release, including non-GAAP income (loss), non-GAAP income (loss) per share, and adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP financial measures. Fulgent Genetics believes this information is useful to investors because it provides a basis for measuring the performance of the Company’s business excluding certain income or expense items that management believes are not directly attributable to the Company’s operating results. Fulgent Genetics defines non-GAAP income (loss) as income (loss) calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, or GAAP, plus amortization of intangible assets, plus equity-based compensation expenses, plus or minus the non-GAAP tax effect, and plus or minus other charges or gains, as identified, that management believes are not representative of the Company’s operations. The non-GAAP tax effect is calculated by applying the statutory corporate tax rate on the amortization of intangible assets and equity-based compensation expenses. Fulgent Genetics defines adjusted EBITDA as GAAP income (loss) plus or minus interest (expense) income, plus or minus provisions (benefits) for income taxes, plus depreciation and amortization, plus equity-based compensation expenses, and plus or minus other charges or gains, as identified, that management believes are not representative of the Company’s operations. Fulgent Genetics may continue to incur expenses similar to the items added to or subtracted from GAAP income (loss) to calculate non-GAAP income (loss) and adjusted EBITDA; accordingly, the exclusion of these items in the presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures should not be construed as an implication that these items are unusual, infrequent or non-recurring. Management uses these non-GAAP financial measures along with the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure of income (loss) in evaluating the Company’s operating performance. Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information presented in conformity with GAAP, and non-GAAP financial measures as reported by Fulgent Genetics may not be comparable to similarly titled metrics reported by other companies.
