FRIENDSWOOD, Texas, August 08, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Castle Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: CSTL), a company improving health through innovative tests that guide patient care, today announced its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2022.

"In the second quarter, we saw strong execution across the Castle team, which produced another quarter of record test report volume," said Derek Maetzold, president and chief executive officer of Castle Biosciences. "In our core dermatology business, we delivered a 44% increase in test report volume over the second quarter of 2021 and a 16% increase over the first quarter of 2022. We believe our continued momentum is directly linked to the clinical value our tests provide to clinicians and their patients, coupled with the focused investments we have made and continue to make in our business.

"We are excited about the Company’s ongoing collaboration with the National Cancer Institute (NCI) to link DecisionDx®-Melanoma testing data with data from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results (SEER) program registries on cutaneous melanoma cases. Data from this real-world cohort showed that patients diagnosed with melanoma and tested with DecisionDx-Melanoma had improved survival—27% improvement in melanoma-specific survival—compared to untested patients. We expect to generate data from this collaboration, as we expand our matched data beyond the initial cohort.

"Turning to our newest franchises, gastroenterology and mental health, we are making great progress with our integration efforts, and the initial reception from clinicians for both tests is strong. We made these acquisitions to contribute meaningfully to our top-line growth in the mid-to long-term, and along with focused investments, we believe they will contribute to our anticipated operating cash-flow neutrality by 2025.

"Our progress is the direct result of our dedicated team of professionals at Castle, who are committed to improving health through the innovative tests we offer. Thanks to their efforts, we believe Castle will continue with the current momentum we have seen and continue creating value for stockholders."

Second Quarter and Recent Accomplishments and Highlights

Dermatology

  • In April, the Company announced new real-world data from its ongoing collaboration with the National Cancer Institute (NCI). In a recent study, patients who received DecisionDx-Melanoma test results in addition to traditional clinicopathologic factors, as part of their clinical care, had improved survival compared to patients who were not tested (that is, their clinician could only rely upon available traditional clinicopathologic factors), with a 27% (hazard ratio (HR)=0.73, p=0.028) and 21% (HR=0.79, p=0.006) MSS (melanoma-specific survival) and OS (overall survival) survival benefit compared to matched patients who were not tested, respectively. The data was shared in a poster presentation at the 18th European Association of Dermato-Oncology (EADO) Congress. See the Company’s news release from April 21, 2022, for more information.

  • In May, the Company announced new data showing that DecisionDx-SCC can independently risk-stratify patients with cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and one or more risk factors according to their biologic risk of metastasis, consistent with findings in previous development and validation studies. The poster was presented at the 2022 American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS) Annual Meeting. Overall, the study data confirm what previous development and validation studies have substantiated: DecisionDx-SCC can accurately classify risk for metastasis in SCC patients with one or more risk factors and provides significant prognostic information independent from current risk prediction methods. Additionally, the study data further support the use of DecisionDx-SCC test results in combination with other risk-assessment and staging systems to guide more refined and risk-aligned patient care. See the Company's news release from May 19, 2022, for more information.

  • In May, the Company announced that it had been selected as the winner of the "Best New Technology Solution - Dermatology" award in the sixth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program for its innovative DecisionDx-Melanoma gene expression profile (GEP) test. The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories. This year's program attracted more than 3,900 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world. See the Company's news release from May 27, 2022, for more information.

  • In June, the Company announced a poster presentation on DecisionDx-Melanoma at the 2022 Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference for PAs & NPs. The poster, titled "Attitudes of Patients with Cutaneous Melanoma Towards Prognostic Testing Using Gene Expression Profiling," shares results from a survey of 120 melanoma patients regarding prognostic testing with DecisionDx-Melanoma. In the survey, a significant majority of patients desired testing with DecisionDx-Melanoma after receiving a melanoma diagnosis and appreciated the in-depth information provided by the results, regardless of whether they received low or high-risk scores. See the Company's news release from June 14, 2022, for more information.

  • In June, the Company announced a new collaboration with the Oregon Health & Science University's (OHSU) War on Melanoma™. The War on Melanoma is a multi-faceted public health campaign with a focus on early detection and prevention of melanoma through various education, activism and research programs. The collaboration includes support of various aspects of the War on Melanoma program, including the Start Seeing Melanoma™ campaign and the Skin Crew. See the Company's news release from June 20, 2022, for more information.

Uveal Melanoma

  • In May, the Company announced a partnership with Research to Prevent Blindness (RPB), the leading nonprofit organization supporting eye research directed at the prevention, treatment or eradication of all diseases that damage and destroy sight, to provide funding for the RPB/Castle Biosciences Medical Student Eye Research Fellowship in Ocular Cancer, which allows medical students to take a year off from medical school to devote time to the pursuit of a research project within an RPB-supported department of ophthalmology. See the Company's news release from May 20, 2022, for more information.

  • In June, the Company announced findings from a study that evaluated uveal melanoma (UM) patients' attitudes toward prognostic testing and specifically with respect to DecisionDx-UM. Highlights from the study were shared in a poster presentation at the 20th congress of the International Society of Ocular Oncology (ISOO), recently held in Leiden, The Netherlands. Of the 177 survey participants, 90% reported wanting prognostic information at diagnosis. And of the patients who received prognostic testing with DecisionDx-UM, there was no significant difference in decision regret levels among those receiving a low- (Class 1A), intermediate- (Class 1B) or high-risk (Class 2) test result (Kruskal-Wallis rank sum test, X2=4.1, p=0.13). Patients tested with DecisionDx-UM reported gaining value from their test result, including increased knowledge and understanding of their disease, more personalized treatment options, information relevant to life planning, and relief from uncertainty about the future. See the Company's news release from June 23, 2022, for more information.

Gastroenterology

  • In April, the Company announced an independent, peer-reviewed article published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology. The authors performed a pooled analysis, and the data demonstrated the ability of TissueCypher to significantly improve predictions of progression to esophageal cancer in patients with Barrett’s Esophagus (BE), compared to predictions based on traditional clinicopathologic variables alone, allowing for more informed disease management decisions. See the Company's news release from April 27, 2022, for more information.

  • In May, the Company announced new study data demonstrating the ability of its TissueCypher Barrett's Esophagus test to independently predict malignant progression to high-grade dysplasia (HGD) and esophageal adenocarcinoma (EAC) in patients with non-dysplastic (ND), indefinite or low-grade dysplasia (LGD) (BE). Overall, the study demonstrated that TissueCypher can accurately predict progression to HGD or EAC in BE patients who are initially diagnosed with LGD, outperforming the majority of pathologist diagnoses evaluated in the study. Further, TissueCypher test results may provide an objective solution to observer variability, identifying more progressors early and helping to inform management decisions and standardize care plans for patients with BE. See the Company's news release from May 24, 2022, for more information.

  • In August, the Company announced that the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) recently published a best practice advice article stating that the TissueCypher Barrett’s Esophagus test may be beneficial for risk-stratification of patients with non-dysplastic BE. The best practice advice article from the AGA, titled "AGA Clinical Practice Update on New Technology and Innovation for Surveillance and Screening in Barrett’s Esophagus: Expert Review," was recently published online in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology and can be viewed here. See the Company's news release from Aug. 4, 2022, for more information.

Mental Health

  • In May, the Company announced a collaboration with Camille Schrier, Miss America 2020, as part of Mental Health Awareness Month, to promote the potential of genetic testing and the IDgenetix test to help improve treatment for mental health conditions. See the Company’s news release from May 6, 2022, for more information.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures (UNAUDITED)

In this release, we use the metrics of Adjusted Revenue, Adjusted Gross Margin, Adjusted Operating Cash Flow and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP financial measures and are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). Adjusted Revenue and Adjusted Gross Margin reflect adjustments to net revenues to exclude changes in variable consideration related to test reports delivered in previous periods. Adjusted Gross Margin further excludes acquisition-related intangible asset amortization. Adjusted Operating Cash Flow excludes the effects of repayments to Medicare of COVID-19 government relief advancements to healthcare providers. Adjusted EBITDA excludes from net loss interest expense, depreciation and amortization expense, income tax (benefit) expense, stock compensation expense, acquisition-related transaction costs and change in fair value of contingent consideration.

We use Adjusted Revenue, Adjusted Gross Margin, Adjusted Operating Cash Flow and Adjusted EBTIDA internally because we believe these metrics provide useful supplemental information in assessing our revenue and cash flow performance reported in accordance with GAAP, respectively. We believe Adjusted Revenue and Adjusted Gross Margin are also useful to investors because they provide additional information on current-period performance by removing the effects of revenue adjustments related to tests delivered in previous periods and, with respect to Adjusted Gross Margin, acquisition-related intangible asset amortization, which we believe may facilitate revenue and gross margin comparisons to historical periods. We believe Adjusted Operating Cash Flow is also useful to investors as a supplement to GAAP measures in the assessment of our cash flow performance by removing the effects of COVID-19 government relief payments, which we believe are not indicative of our ongoing operations. We believe Adjusted EBITDA may enhance an evaluation of our operating performance based on recent revenue generation and product/overhead cost control because it excludes the impact of prior decisions made about capital investment, financing and other expenses. However, these non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, even when the same or similarly titled terms are used to identify such measures, limiting their usefulness for comparative purposes.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or used as substitutes for net revenues, gross margin, net cash (used in) provided by operating activities or net loss reported in accordance with GAAP; should be considered in conjunction with our financial information presented in accordance with GAAP; have no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP; and are 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 we may exclude for purposes of these non-GAAP financial measures, and we may in the future cease to exclude items that we have historically excluded for purposes of these non-GAAP financial measures. Likewise, we may determine to modify the nature of adjustments to arrive at these non-GAAP financial measures. Because of the non-standardized definitions of non-GAAP financial measures, the non-GAAP financial measure as used by us in this press release and the accompanying reconciliation tables have limits in their usefulness to investors and may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be directly comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies. Accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are presented in the tables at the end of this release.

1.

We received an advance payment of $8.3 million from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service (CMS), for which recoupment has commenced in April 2021. We recorded the receipt of the payment as a liability on our balance sheet and, in accordance with GAAP, it was included in net cash provided by operating activities in the period received. We have excluded receipt of the advance payment from adjusted operating cash flow, but as claims were submitted for reimbursement and applied against this balance, we included the advance payment in adjusted operating cash flow to the extent that Medicare claims submitted for reimbursement were applied to the balance.

2.

We received a one-time payment of $1.9 million in relief funds automatically allocated to Medicare providers under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
