--Achieved First Profitable Quarter --Product Revenue Increased 21%, Tests Delivered Increased 18% Compared with Prior Year --Company Lowers 2010 Guidance --Conference Call Today at 4:30 p.m. ET

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Aug 04, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX News Network/ -- Genomic Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: GHDX) today reported financial results and business progress for the quarter ended June 30, 2010.

Total revenue increased to $43.4 million in the second quarter of 2010 compared with $36.6 million in the second quarter of 2009. Product revenue was $42.5 million in the second quarter of 2010, an increase of 21 percent, compared with $35.2 million in the second quarter of 2009.

Net income was $0.9 million in the second quarter of 2010, compared with a net loss of $3.9 million in the second quarter of 2009. Basic and diluted net income per share was $0.03 in the second quarter of 2010, compared with basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.14 in the second quarter of 2009.

"In the second quarter we delivered solid financial results, including our first quarterly profit, driven by growth in both new markets and our U.S. node-negative breast cancer business, as well as effective cost control measures. Looking forward, we expect continued market and economic conditions to have a modest impact on near term growth rates," said Kim Popovits, President and Chief Executive Officer of Genomic Health. "In addition to further expanding our U.S. breast cancer business, we will continue our focus on increasing demand and reimbursement for node-positive breast cancer, colon cancer and international patients, all of which we believe will be key contributors to future growth."

Additional Second Quarter 2010 Financial Results

Approximately 53 percent of product revenue was recorded on an accrual basis and recognized at the time the test results were delivered during the second quarter of 2010, reflecting established payment patterns from payors with agreements to pay or contracts in place.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2010 were $42.4 million, including cost of product revenues of $8.1 million, compared with total operating expenses of $40.5 million, including cost of product revenues of $7.9 million for the comparable period in 2009. The cost of product revenue was favorably impacted by the discontinuance of a licensing royalty of one percent of revenues. Included in operating expenses were non-cash charges of $4.6 million, including $2.8 million of stock-based compensation expense and $1.8 million of depreciation and amortization expenses, in the second quarter of 2010, compared with non-cash charges of $4.1 million, including $2.5 million of stock-based compensation expense and $1.6 million of depreciation and amortization expenses, for the same period in 2009.

Cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments at June 30, 2010 grew by $4.2 million to $61.9 million compared with $57.7 million at March 31, 2010.

Financial Results for Six Months Ended June 30, 2010

Total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2010 was $84.7 million, compared with $70.4 million for the first six months of 2009. Product revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2010 was $82.8 million, compared with $68.6 million for the first six months of 2009, an increase of 21 percent.

Net loss was $1.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010, compared with a net loss of $8.6 million for the first six months of 2009. Basic and diluted net loss per share was $0.04 for the six months ended June 30, 2010, compared with basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.30 for the first six months of 2009.

2010 Financial Outlook

"We expect to continue to manage the business in a cash flow positive manner while investing in international markets and our pipeline aimed at long term growth," said Brad Cole, Chief Operating and Financial Officer of Genomic Health. "While we are adjusting our financial outlook for the year, the success of our U.S. breast cancer franchise continues to fund investments in international and new markets, which have already resulted in more than 100 percent year-over-year growth in tests delivered for the first half of 2010."
