SAN DIEGO, Aug. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bionano Genomics, Inc. (Nasdaq: BNGO), pioneer of optical genome mapping (OGM) solutions on the Saphyr® system and provider of NxClinical™ software, a leading solution for visualization, interpretation and reporting of genomic data, today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

The Company executed its commercialization strategy, built scientific momentum by presenting data at key scientific meetings and drove utilization of the Saphyr system at leading institutions across the globe, with the following highlights:

Notable Highlights since the End of Q2 2022:

  • A paper was published in Leukemia, from MD Anderson Cancer Center, demonstrating the utility of OGM for myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) prognostication. The authors reported that in up to 28% of MDS participants in the study, using OGM instead of traditional methods of analysis would have resulted in a different prognostic risk score or additional actionable variants. Prognostic risk scores are used to determine the therapeutic management that oncologists follow in MDS so different risk scores could mean different therapies and potentially better outcomes for patients.

Business Highlights in Q2 2022:

  • Total revenue for Q2 2022 was $6.7 million, a record quarter for the company.

  • Grew the installed base of Saphyr systems from 176 at the end of Q1 2022 by 20 to 196 as of the end of Q2 2022. The installed base grew 62% compared to Q2 2021. The addition to the installed base of 20 systems in the second quarter of 2022 is 67% higher than the 12 systems that were added in the first quarter of 2022.

  • Sold 3,394 nanochannel array flowcells during Q2 2022, a 24% growth over Q2 2021.

  • Presented the latest research on OGM for use in a variety of applications at industry conferences including American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting, American Cytogenomics Conference (ACC), Advances in Genome Biology and Technology (AGBT) General Meeting, European Society of Human Genetics Conference ESHG), and European Association for Cancer Research (EACR) Congress.

  • As mentioned as a highlight after the close of Q1, launched version 6.2 of NxClinical software with an integrated genomic scar analysis for homologous recombination deficiency (HRD). This feature provides a comprehensive, consistent, and automated analysis of biomarkers from next-generation sequencing (NGS) and microarray data that can help clinical researchers stratify therapeutic response across multiple tumor types.

  • Announced, together with Hamilton, the collaborative development of the Long String VANTAGE for the isolation of Ultra High Molecular Weight (UHMW) DNA for use in OGM. The Long String VANTAGE is the first Assay Ready Workstation solution in Hamilton’s Long String Genomics product program and supports extraction of UHMW DNA at increased scale. We believe this workflow has the potential to double manual output, with increased confidence in sample yields and DNA quality.

  • Q2 publications include:

    • A study from the University Hospitals Leuven, Belgium using OGM in combination with multiple other cytogenetic methods and a new single-cell analysis method as a comprehensive molecular strategy to characterize the genomic variation in B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL).

    • An evaluation of OGM from The First Affiliated Hospital of Zhengzhou, the largest hospital in Central China, highlighting the utility of OGM for structural variant analysis, including in a workflow for preimplantation genetic testing.

    • The first peer-reviewed research study, from researchers at the University Hospital Essen, using OGM to analyze genetic aberrations found in pediatric patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

    • The publication of a multi-platform study from researchers in the Human Genome Structural Variation Consortium (HGSVC) using OGM in combination with other cytogenetic technologies as a comprehensive strategy to investigate inversions that may lead to genetic disorders.

  • OGM using the Saphyr system continues to be adopted at cytogenetics laboratories and academic medical centers across the globe.

“We believe our Q2 2022 results, which include record quarterly revenues for Bionano, show that the foundation we laid in 2021 has carried us into 2022 and that the great progress demonstrated by this quarter’s growth in Saphyr system installed base reflects continued gains in market development and proof of concept. We were also pleased to see a number of presentations demonstrating OGM’s utility at cancer and cytogenomics conferences across Europe and the United States,” commented Erik Holmlin, PhD, president and chief executive officer of Bionano. “We remain on track to achieve all of our previously outlined ELEVATE! milestones for the second half of the year. We believe all of these achieved and planned advancements, together with further validation of OGM utility supported by recent publications, lay the foundation for further penetration of our target markets and revenue growth.”

Q2 2022 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue for Q2 2022 was $6.7 million, up 73% from Q2 2021, and a 17% increase from Q1 2022.

  • Gross margin for Q2 2022 was 22%, compared to 37% from Q2 2021. The decrease was primarily due to low yields on our chip consumables produced at our contract manufacturer. Gross margin improved over the first quarter of 2022 of 15%, primarily due to improvements in chip yield.

  • Q2 2022 GAAP operating expense was $33.6 million, compared to $17.9 million in Q2 2021. Q2 2022 non-GAAP1 operating expense was $26.4 million, compared to $16.1 million in Q2 2021. Q2 2022 non-GAAP operating expense excludes $5.8 million in stock-based compensation, and $1.4 million in amortization of intangibles. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increased headcount-related spending, increased research and development expenses, and increased marketing expenses.

  • At June 30, 2022, the Company had cash, cash equivalents, and available-for-sale securities of $187.3 million.

Chris Stewart, chief financial officer of Bionano added, “Q2 2022 was another outstanding quarter for Bionano. I’m pleased with our 73% year-over-year revenue growth, which we achieved against a challenging macro-economic backdrop. We believe this growth reflects the building excitement about Bionano solutions that we are seeing in the market. Our capitalization remains strong with a cash, cash equivalents, and available-for-sale securities balance of $187.3 million as of June 30, 2022, and we maintain our full-year revenue guidance range of $24 million to $27 million.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement Bionano’s financial results reported in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company has provided non-GAAP operating expense in this press release, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. Non-GAAP operating expense excludes from GAAP reported operating expense the following components as detailed in the reconciliation table accompanying this press release: stock-based compensation and amortization of intangibles.

Bionano believes that non-GAAP operating expense is useful to investors and analysts as a supplement to its financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP for analyzing operating performance and identifying operating trends in its business. Bionano uses non-GAAP operating expense internally to facilitate period-to-period comparisons and analysis of its operating performance in order to understand, manage and evaluate its business and to make operating decisions. Accordingly, Bionano believes this measure allows for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics it uses in assessing its own operating performance and making operating decisions.

This non-GAAP financial measure is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures; should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP; has no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP; and is not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. In addition, from time to time in the future, there may be other items that the Company may exclude for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures; and the Company may in the future cease to exclude items that it has historically excluded for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures. Likewise, the Company may determine to modify the nature of its adjustments to arrive at its non-GAAP financial measures. Because of the non-standardized definitions of non-GAAP financial measures, the non-GAAP financial measure as used by Bionano in this press release and the accompanying reconciliation table has limits in its usefulness to investors and may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be directly comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.

For a reconciliation of non-GAAP operating expense to operating expense reported in accordance with GAAP, please refer to the financial tables accompanying this release.
