Financial Highlights

  • Consolidated net revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were $32.3 million, an 8% increase from the third quarter of 2015. Consolidated net revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were $92.7 million, a 6% increase from the comparable period of 2015.
  • Net revenues from international sales of the Company’s OraQuick® HIV test were $1.1 million for the third quarter of 2016, representing a 147% increase over the third quarter of 2015. Net international revenues for the OraQuick® HIV test were $3.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, a 97% increase from the comparable period of 2015.
  • Net molecular collection systems revenues were $8.3 million during the third quarter of 2016, which represents a 14% increase over the third quarter of 2015. Net molecular collection systems revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were $23.6 million, a 7% increase from the comparable period in 2015.
  • International sales of the Company’s OraQuick® rapid HCV test were $1.3 million for the third quarter of 2016, representing a 35% increase from the third quarter of 2015. International sales of the HCV test for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were $3.7 million, an increase of 44% from the comparable period of 2015.
  • During the third quarter, the Company was awarded a contract for up to $16.6 million in total funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response’s Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (“BARDA”) related to the development of a rapid Zika test.
  • The Company secured a contract with a foreign government to supply $18 million in diagnostic products, largely consisting of OraQuick® rapid HCV tests. The first shipment of this product is expected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2016 pending completion of certain ancillary documents required under the contract.
  • Consolidated net income for the third quarter of 2016 was $6.2 million, or $0.11 per share on a fully-diluted basis, which compares to consolidated net income of $1.5 million, or $0.03 per share on a fully-diluted basis, for the third quarter of 2015. Consolidated net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $12.5 million, or $0.22 per share on a fully-diluted basis, which compares to consolidated net income of $3.6 million, or $0.06 per share, for the comparable period of 2015.
  • Cash and short-term investments totaled $121.2 million and working capital amounted to $128.8 million at September 30, 2016.

“We are very pleased with the Company’s financial performance for the third quarter, especially our strong bottom line results,” said Douglas A. Michels, President and CEO of OraSure Technologies. “We continue to build on numerous international opportunities and have executed an $18 million product supply agreement with a foreign government in support of a country-wide HCV elimination program. Our molecular business continues to generate impressive growth and we were successful in obtaining government funding for continued work on our rapid Zika test. We believe the progress we have made on these key objectives has positioned us well for future success.”

Financial Results

Consolidated net product revenues for the third quarter of 2016 decreased 1% from the comparable period of 2015 primarily as a result of the absence of sales of the Company’s OraQuick® Ebola rapid antigen test, lower domestic sales of the Company’s OraQuick® HIV and HCV products, and lower sales of the Company’s cryosurgical systems and risk assessment products. These lower sales were partially offset by higher sales of the Company’s molecular collection systems products and increased international OraQuick® HIV and HCV product sales.

Consolidated net product revenues for the first nine months of 2016 increased 3% over the comparable periods of 2015, primarily as a result of higher international sales of the Company’s OraQuick® HCV and HIV products, and higher sales of the Company’s molecular collection systems and cryosurgical systems products. These increases were partially offset by lower domestic sales of the Company’s OraQuick® HIV products, lower sales of the Company’s risk assessment products, and the absence of sales of the Company’s OraQuick® Ebola Rapid Antigen test in the current nine-month period.

Consolidated other revenues for the third quarter and first nine months of 2016 were $6.8 million and $14.4 million, respectively. This compares to consolidated other revenues for the third quarter and first nine months of 2015 of $4.1 million and $11.5 million, respectively. Exclusivity revenues recognized under the Company’s HCV co-promotion agreement with AbbVie for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2016 were $6.1 million and $12.8 million, respectively. AbbVie exclusivity revenues for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2015 were $3.4 million and $10.0 million, respectively. Other revenues in the third quarter and first nine months of 2016 also included $677,000 and $1.6 million, respectively, of funding received from BARDA. Other revenues for the third quarter and first nine months of 2015 included $750,000 and $1.5 million, respectively, in BARDA funding.

Consolidated gross margin for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 was 70% and 69%, respectively. Consolidated gross margin for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 was 69% and 67%, respectively. Gross margin for the current quarter increased primarily due to higher other revenues partially offset by a less favorable product mix. Gross margin for the nine-month period increased largely due to lower scrap and spoilage costs and the increase in other revenues, partially offset by an unfavorable product mix.

Consolidated operating expenses decreased to $16.5 million during the third quarter of 2016 compared to $19.1 million in the third quarter of 2015. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, consolidated operating expenses were $50.9 million, a decrease from the $54.4 million reported for the nine months ended September 30, 2015. The quarterly decrease was largely due to lower costs associated with the AbbVie HCV co-promotion agreement partially offset by increased research and development expenses. The decrease in the nine-month period was largely due to lower costs associated with the AbbVie co-promotion agreement and lower research and development expenses, partially offset by increased general and administrative expenses.

The Company’s cash and short-term investment balance totaled $121.2 million at September 30, 2016 compared to $101.3 million at December 31, 2015. Working capital was $128.8 million at September 30, 2016 compared to $111.5 million at December 31, 2015. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company generated $23.4 million in cash from operations.

Fourth Quarter 2016 Outlook

The Company expects consolidated net revenues to range from $34.50 to $35.25 million and is projecting consolidated net income of $0.05 to $0.06 per share for the fourth quarter of 2016. This revenue guidance includes initial contributions from the new $18 million foreign government HCV product supply contract. However, OraSure will not commence shipment of product until certain additional ancillary documents required under the contract are completed. In addition, projected fourth quarter 2016 expenses will include $1.4 million in restructuring charges, consisting largely of work-force reduction costs which include severance and benefit expenses. Annual cost savings resulting from this restructuring as well as the termination of the Company’s HCV co-promotion agreement with AbbVie at year end are expected to be $3.6 million, beginning in 2017.
