REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Genomic Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: GHDX) today reported financial results and business progress for the quarter ended March 31, 2012. 

Total revenue increased to $58.5 million in the first quarter of 2012, compared with $49.8 million in 2011, an increase of 17 percent.  Product revenue was $57.9 million in the first quarter of 2012, compared with $49.5 million for the same period in 2011, an increase of 17 percent.  Contract revenue comprised the balance of total revenue for each of these periods.

Net income was $0.8 million for the first quarter of 2012, an improvement of $1.1 million, compared with a net loss of $0.3 million in the first quarter of 2011.  Basic and diluted net income per share applicable to common stockholders was $0.03 and $0.02, respectively, in the first quarter of 2012, compared with basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.01 for the same period in 2011.

"We delivered strong product revenue growth in the first quarter of 2012 driven by a 15 percent year-over-year increase in test volume and strong cash revenue," said Kim Popovits, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of Genomic Health. "During the quarter we invested to expand our global commercial reach in both breast and colon cancer, while continuing to invest in key pipeline programs including next generation products and additional indications for our colon cancer test.  Further, we continued to advance our prostate cancer program and look forward to reporting topline results from our clinical validation study in the second half of this year." 

Additional First Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2012 were $57.6 million, including cost of product revenues of $9.3 million, compared with total operating expenses for the comparable period in 2011 of $50.0 million, including cost of product revenues of $9.1 million.  Operating expenses exclusive of cost of product revenues were $48.3 million and grew by 18 percent over the prior year.   

Cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities at March 31, 2012 were $103.1 million, compared with $100.5 million at December 31, 2011.

In the first quarter of 2012, 18,630 Oncotype DX® test results were delivered, an increase of 15 percent, compared with more than 16,230 test results delivered in the same period in 2011.

Net loss for our wholly owned subsidiary, InVitae™ Corporation, was immaterial to the quarter and is reflected in our overall results. We continue to expect a full year net loss contribution from InVitae of up to $8 million dollars in 2012. 

"Our higher than expected net income in the quarter was a result of stronger than anticipated revenue performance due, in part, to payments by Medicare for colon tests performed prior to the establishment of coverage," said Dean Schorno, Chief Financial Officer.  "In the second quarter, we continue to expect a net loss due to historical seasonal patterns impacting test volumes and revenues along with planned increases in operating expenses to further our worldwide commercial and pipeline efforts."
