OXFORD, United Kingdom and MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Nov. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Immunotec Global PLC (Nasdaq:OXFD), a global, commercial-stage diagnostics company committed to improving patient care by providing advanced, innovative tests in the field of immunology, today announced third quarter 2014 financial results.

"We are pleased with our financial performance and the operational progress we made in the third quarter," said Dr. Peter Wrighton-Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Oxford Immunotec. "We were encouraged by our performance in the United States and Asia and are excited about the product pipeline we are building."

By revenue type, total revenues were, in millions:

Three Months Ended Sep. 30,
2014 2013 Change
Product $ 6.5 $ 5.0 30%
Service 6.8 5.7 19%
Total Revenue $ 13.3 $ 10.7 24%

By geography, total revenues were, in millions:

Three Months Ended Sep. 30,
2014 2013 Change
United States $ 6.5 $ 5.3 21%
Europe and ROW 1.7 1.7 -1%
Asia 5.1 3.7 41%
Total Revenue $ 13.3 $ 10.7 24%

Third Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Revenue for the third quarter of 2014 was $13.3 million, representing 24% growth over the third quarter 2013 revenue of $10.7 million.

United States revenue was $6.5 million in the third quarter of 2014 representing 21% growth over the same period's revenue of $5.3 million in the prior year. Growth was primarily driven by the acquisition of new customers.

Europe and Rest of World revenue of $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2014 was essentially flat compared to the third quarter of 2013. The performance in this region is reflective of the more fragmented nature of this market and our investment priorities.

Asia revenue was $5.1 million in the third quarter of 2014 representing 41% growth over the 2013 third quarter of $3.7 million. Revenue growth from this geography is representative of the large market opportunity and strong adoption of our test in both China and Japan.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2014 was $6.8 million, an increase of $1.0 million over gross profit of $5.8 million in the same period of 2013. Gross margin was 51.1%, a decrease of 2.9 percentage points in comparison to the gross margin of 54.0% in the third quarter of 2013. The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to currency effects, investments to increase capacity in our service lab and an increase in share-based compensation included in COGS. The majority of our product costs, including the kit cost component of our service cost of sales are denominated in Pounds Sterling while the majority of our revenues are recognized in U.S. Dollars and Japanese Yen, both of which have weakened against the Pound.

Operating expenses were $13.0 million in the third quarter of 2014, an increase of $5.0 million compared to $8.0 million in the same period last year. The increase in operating expenses was primarily a result of the expansion to our sales force and marketing personnel in the United States and Asia as well as increased research and development costs associated with our product pipeline.

EBITDA for the third quarter was $(5.5) million compared to $(2.7) million in the third quarter of 2013. Adjusted EBITDA was $(4.9) million for the third quarter compared to $(2.1) million in the same period in 2013. Both EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2014 was $6.1 million or $0.35 per share compared to $3.2 million or $1.36 per share in the third quarter of 2013. Net loss per share was based on 17,333,441 and 2,331,990 weighted average ordinary shares outstanding for the third quarter of 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Cash and cash equivalents were $58.0 million as of September 30, 2014 compared to $65.8 million as of June 30, 2014, a decrease of $7.8 million.

Business Outlook

We expect to report revenue of between $11.6 and $12.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2014, and between $49.0 and $49.5 million for the full year of 2014. We expect our gross margin to continue to improve at a moderate pace in the upcoming quarters and that operating expenses will increase as we continue to invest in the business.
