Total revenue was $83.8 million in the third quarter of 2017, compared with $82.3 million in the third quarter of 2016, an increase of 2 percent. Revenue was negatively impacted by approximately $3 million due to the hurricane disruption in certain regions of the United States.

"In the third quarter, we generated solid results including a 2 percent increase in revenue and a 5 percent increase in test volume, despite disruption in U.S. regions affected by hurricanes. We also reported a net loss of $2.2 million, and on a non-GAAP basis delivered a $1.1 million profit in the third quarter.  Importantly, we expect to deliver full-year profit, excluding transaction costs from our collaboration with Biocartis," said Kim Popovits, chairman of the board, chief executive officer and president of Genomic Health. "We look forward to significant revenue drivers in 2018 including a new higher Medicare rate under PAMA and anticipated TAILORx results, while we expand our business model to increase worldwide access through the development of an in vitro diagnostic, or IVD, version of the Oncotype DX breast cancer test."

More than 31,580 Oncotype™ test results were delivered in the third quarter of 2017, an increase of 5 percent, compared with more than 29,990 test results delivered in the same period in 2016.

Oncotype DX Genomic Prostate Score tests delivered in the U.S. grew 39 percent compared with the third quarter of the prior year. International tests delivered grew 14 percent compared with the same period of the prior year and represented approximately 26 percent of total test volume in the third quarter of 2017.

Operating loss for the third quarter of 2017 improved to $2.6 million, compared with $3.0 million for the third quarter of 2016. Net loss was $2.2 million, or $0.06 per share, for the third quarter of 2017, compared with a net loss of $2.8 million, or $0.08 per share, for the third quarter of 2016. Basic and diluted net loss per share was $0.06 for the third quarter of 2017, compared with basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.08 for the third quarter of 2016.

Total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $253.3 million compared with $245.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, an increase of 3 percent. On a constant currency basis, revenue increased 4 percent compared with the same period in the prior year.i

International product revenue was $39.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with $34.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, an increase of 13 percent, and an increase of 16 percent on a constant currency basis.i

Operating loss improved to $8.6 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with an operating loss of $16.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.  Net loss was $5.7 million, or $0.17 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2017, compared with a net loss of $15.3 million, or $0.46 per share, for the nine months ended September 30, 2016.

2017 Financial Outlook

  • The company expects to deliver full-year profit, excluding the $3.2 million cost of the Biocartis transaction.
  • The company expects to meet the low end of its full year revenue guidance, which is $345 million, excluding the estimated hurricane impact on revenue of approximately $3 million in the third quarter.

Recent Business Highlights

  • Palmetto GBA, a Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) that assesses molecular diagnostic technologies, issued a positive final Local Coverage Determination (LCD) that became effective on October 9, 2017 to expand Medicare coverage of the Oncotype DX Genomic Prostate Score test to qualified patients with favorable intermediate-risk prostate cancer throughout the U.S.
  • Established additional private coverage for the Oncotype DX Genomic Prostate Score test, bringing the total number of U.S. covered lives to more than 66 million.
  • Established new private coverage for the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score test in Germany, bringing the total number of German private covered lives to 15 million.
  • Announced an exclusive agreement with Biocartis Group NV to develop an IVD version of the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score test on Biocartis' Idylla platform that can be performed locally by laboratory partners and in hospitals around the world to broaden future global patient access.
  • European Urology published results from a large, community-based, multi-center clinical validation study conducted at Kaiser Permanente. The results confirmed that the Oncotype DX GPS test is a strong independent predictor of prostate cancer-specific death and metastases at 10 years in men with localized prostate cancer.
  • Presented results from four studies that provide additional evidence of the unmatched value of the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score test in accurately predicting outcomes in early-stage breast cancer patients at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2017 Congress.
  • Nature Partner Journals Breast Cancer, a peer-reviewed journal published by Nature, published two articles highlighting results from a large prospectively designed registry conducted by Clalit Health Services, the largest Health Maintenance Organization in Israel. The results reinforce the ability of the Oncotype DX Breast Recurrence Score test to predict clinical outcomes in both node-negative and node-positive patients.
  • Received acceptance to present nine studies at the 2017 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) in December.

i Constant currency is a non-GAAP measure that is calculated by comparing the company's quarterly average foreign exchange rates for the nine months ended September 30, 2017.  The constant currency disclosures take current local currency revenue and translate it into U.S. dollars based upon the foreign currency exchange rates used to translate the local currency revenue for the applicable comparable period in the prior year, rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the current period. It does not include any other effect of changes in foreign currency rates on the company's results or business.  The company believes this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors in assessing the operating performance of the business. This non-GAAP measure should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to GAAP measures.

The Company makes reference in this press release to "non-GAAP net income" which excludes research and development expense recorded for a one-time upfront license and option fee, for the Company's collaboration with Biocartis N.V.; and certain other non-recurring income and expenses. The Company believes that excluding these items and their related tax effects from its financial results reflects operating results that are more indicative of the Company's ongoing operating performance while improving comparability to prior periods, and, as such may provide investors with an enhanced understanding of the Company's past financial performance and prospects for the future. In addition, the Company's management uses such non-GAAP measures internally to evaluate and assess its core operations and to make ongoing operating decisions. This information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for income (loss) from operations, net loss or other income (expense) information prepared in accordance with GAAP.
