  • myRisk Hereditary Cancer testing revenue increased to $100.9 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 from $27.3 million in the fourth quarter of the prior year, and the Company exited the quarter with 72 percent of incoming hereditary cancer samples ordered as myRisk.
  • The decline in both adjusted operating and net income in the fiscal fourth quarter 2015 relative to the prior year is attributable to lower gross margins associated with the transition costs of myRisk Hereditary Cancer testing and incremental product launch expenses for Prolaris®, myPath® Melanoma and myPlan® Lung Cancer tests.
  • During the quarter, the Company repurchased approximately 1.3 million shares, or $45 million, of common stock under its share repurchase program and ended the quarter with approximately $155 million remaining on its current share repurchase authorization. Fiscal fourth-quarter diluted weighted average shares outstanding were 72.4 million compared to 77.7 million in the same period last year.

Business Highlights

  • Myriad presented data on 19 abstracts at the American Society of Clinical Oncology including:
  • Results from the Geparsixto study that showed the ability of the myChoice™ HRD test to predict response to carboplatin containing chemotherapy in 193 patients with triple negative breast cancer. The highest response rate of 64 percent was seen in patients with a positive HRD score who received both carboplatin and standard of care chemotherapy, compared to 30 percent in patients with a negative HRD score.
  • Data demonstrating the ability of myChoice HRD to identify responders to Tesaro's novel therapeutic drug candidate niraparib. In a study of 106 patients with advanced ovarian cancer, myChoice HRD identified 100 percent of responders to the investigational drug.
  • A study of almost 77,000 patients tested with myRisk Hereditary Cancer demonstrated that the detection rate for mutations increased 130 percent relative to BRCA1/BRCA2 testing alone. We also presented a study on endometrial cancer demonstrating that over 9 percent of patients carried a deleterious mutation in one of the myRisk genes, which we believe justifies broad testing for this population consistent with recent National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) recommendations.
  • Vectra DA volumes increased to a new record in the fiscal fourth quarter, growing 12 percent sequentially to just under 40,000 tests ordered with revenue up 12 percent sequentially to $11.8 million.
  • Presented data at the America Urological Association (AUA) meeting including:
  • Key data defining an active surveillance threshold for our Prolaris™ test. The active surveillance threshold sets a defined cutoff for patients and has been clinically validated to show patients with scores below the cutoff have a 10-year prostate cancer specific mortality of less than 3 percent.
  • The final results of the PROCEDE 1,000 clinical utility study that evaluated the impact of the Prolaris score on treatment recommendations for 1,206 prostate cancer patients. The final data showed that physicians had a 48 percent change in treatment recommendations in which 35 percent of patients saw a reduction in therapy and 13 percent saw an increase in therapy.

Statement regarding use of non-GAAP financial measures

In this press release, the Company's financial results and financial guidance are provided in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) and using certain non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that presentation of operating results using non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplemental information to investors and facilitates the analysis of the Company's core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods. Management also uses non-GAAP financial measures to establish budgets and to manage the Company's business. A reconciliation of the GAAP financial results to non-GAAP financial results is included in the attached financial statements.

Following is a description of the adjustments made to GAAP financial measures:

  • Acquisition -- change of control payments: Represents payments to reward Crescendo employees for efforts that led to and facilitated the completion of the company's acquisition by Myriad. The payout was instituted and approved by Crescendo immediately prior to the close of the acquisition, and was paid for out of the acquisition purchase price. Given the proximity of the change of control payout and the closing of the merger, the change of control expense was recorded in Myriad's post-acquisition financial results.
  • Acquisition -- accelerated share-based compensation: Represents stock-based compensation expense resulting from the accelerated vesting of Crescendo employee options immediately prior to the acquisition that was recorded in Myriad post-acquisition financial results.
  • Acquisition -- amortization of intangible assets: Represents recurring amortization charges resulting from the acquisition of intangible assets, including developed technology and database rights.
  • Executive severance costs: Represents one-time expenses tied to the transition of key executive officers at the Company.
  • Discontinued operations: Represents one-time charges associated with the closing of business units.
  • Other tax expense: During the quarter, the Company evaluated certain deferred tax assets and liabilities that were established as a result of the acquisition of Myriad RBM and determined that no tax basis is available for the related intangible assets. As a result of this, the Company recorded a one-time adjustment to properly reflect the value of the deferred tax assets and liabilities associated with Myriad RBM.

The Company encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand its business. Non-GAAP financial results are reported in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
