Recent highlights:

  • Achieved total revenue for the third quarter of 2016 of $12.5M, up 74% year-over-year
    • AlloMap® revenues were $8.6M in the quarter, with US tests volume up by 6% year-over-year

Third Quarter Financial Results
Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2016 increased to $12.5 million, up from $7.2 million in the same period in 2015, reflecting the contribution of Olerup sales following the acquisition. Pro forma revenue growth was 13% year-over-year. The revenue trend also reflects $0.9 million of catch up revenue from progress in cash collections.

For the third quarter of 2016, net loss was $3.8 million compared to net loss of $3.5 million in the third quarter of 2015. Diluted net loss per share were $0.26 in the third quarter of 2016, compared to diluted net loss per share of $0.29 in the third quarter of 2015.

For the third quarter of 2016, non-GAAP net loss was $2.9 million compared to non-GAAP net loss of $3.5 million in the third quarter of 2015. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss per share were $0.15 in the third quarter of 2016, compared to non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.29 in the third quarter of 2015. For additional information regarding non-GAAP financial measures discussed herein, please see "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Reconciliation of GAAP to Non-GAAP Financial Measures" below.

For more information regarding our results, please see “Purchase Accounting” below.

2016 Guidance
For the full year 2016, we are narrowing our revenue guidance to the high end of our previously stated range. We expect fiscal 2016 revenue to grow by low- to mid-single digits on a pro forma basis over fiscal 2015 revenue, assuming that the Allenex acquisition closed on January 1, 2016. Actual reported results will only include Allenex results subsequent to the close of the acquisition on April 14, 2016, and we expect reported revenue for the full year 2016 to be in the range of $41 million to $42 million.

Purchase Accounting
The Company has accounted for the acquisition of Allenex as a business combination. Under business combination accounting, the total purchase price was allocated to Allenex’s net tangible and identifiable intangible assets based on their estimated fair values as of April 14, 2016, the closing date, which are reflected in our Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet on a preliminary basis as of September 30, 2016 as set forth herein. The excess of the purchase price over the preliminary net tangible and identifiable intangible assets was recorded as goodwill. The preliminary allocation of the purchase price was based upon a third-party valuation and our estimates and assumptions, which are subject to change. The primary areas of the purchase price allocation that are not yet finalized relate to valuation of acquired inventory, income and non-income based taxes and residual goodwill. In addition, upon the finalization of the combined company’s legal entity structure, additional adjustments to deferred taxes may be required. The final determination of the fair values of certain assets and liabilities will be completed within the measurement period of up to one year from the acquisition date, as permitted under GAAP, as additional information is obtained about the facts and circumstances that existed as of the acquisition closing date. Any potential adjustments made could be material in relation to the amounts presented in our financial statements.

Forward Looking Statements
In addition to historical information, this press release contains forward-looking statements with respect to our business, research, development and commercialization efforts and anticipated future financial results, including our guidance for full fiscal 2016 revenue and statements regarding the potential adjustment of the purchase accounting for the Company’s acquisition of Allenex on April 14, 2016. These forward-looking statements are based upon information that is currently available to us and our current expectations, speak only as of the date hereof, and are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including risks related to our ability to complete diagnostic studies, including obtaining sufficient clinical samples and participation of clinical investigators in such studies, the timeline for completion of research efforts, development and commercialization of additional diagnostic solutions including cell-free DNA, which is a lengthy and complex process that may not be successful, our dependence on Medicare for a substantial portion of our revenue, and our dependence on health insurers and other third-party payers to provide coverage for our current test and future tests, if any, completion of management’s and our independent registered public accounting firm’s review of our financial statements as of and for the period ended September 30, 2016, obtaining additional information about the fair values of certain assets and liabilities of Allenex that existed as of the April 14, 2016 acquisition date and finalization of the combined company’s legal entity structure. These factors, together with those that are described in our filings with the SEC, including the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, and the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015 as filed by us with the SEC, may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially and adversely from those anticipated or implied by our forward-looking statements. We expressly disclaim any obligation, except as required by law, or undertaking to update or revise any such forward-looking statements.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
CareDx has presented certain financial information in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and also on a non-GAAP basis in this release, including non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss per share. We define non-GAAP net loss and per share results as the GAAP net loss and per share results excluding the impacts of stock-based compensation; changes in estimated fair value of warrants and contingent consideration; acquisition related amortization of intangible assets, purchase accounting adjustments and related tax effects, costs involved with completing an acquisition, and certain financing charges. We are presenting these non-GAAP financial measures to assist investors in assessing our operating results through the eyes of management, and because we believe that these measures provide an additional tool for investors to use in comparing our core business operating results over multiple periods. Management believes this non-GAAP information is useful for investors, when considered in conjunction with CareDx's GAAP financial statements, because management uses such information internally for its operating, budgeting and financial planning purposes. Non-GAAP information is not prepared under a comprehensive set of accounting rules and should only be used to supplement an understanding of CareDx's operating results as reported under GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies. A reconciliation between GAAP and non-GAAP financial information is provided immediately following the financial tables.
