"Exact Sciences' strong second quarter results reflect meaningful progress toward our vision to help eradicate cancer by providing patients better information before diagnosis and throughout their treatment," said Kevin Conroy, chairman and CEO. "We're focusing on getting more people tested with Cologuard® and Oncotype®, prioritizing our highest impact projects to reach profitability, and generating high-quality evidence for our pipeline of cancer diagnostic tests."

Second quarter 2022 financial results

For the three-month period ended June 30, 2022, as compared to the same period of 2021 (where applicable):

  • Total revenue was $521.6 million, an increase of 20 percent

  • Total revenue, excluding COVID-19 testing, increased 26 percent

  • EBITDA was $(111.4) million and adjusted EBITDA was $(45.8) million

  • Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities were $728.0 million at the end of the quarter

Screening includes laboratory service revenue from Cologuard tests, PreventionGenetics, and immaterial revenue from Biomatrica and Oncoguard® Liver products. Precision Oncology includes laboratory service revenue from global Oncotype products and therapy selection products, including oncomap™ and oncomap™ ExTra, formerly known as Oncotype Map™ and GEM ExTra®, respectively.

2022 outlook

The company anticipates revenue of $1,980-$2,022 million during 2022, assuming:

  • Screening revenue of $1,350-$1,372 million, including $40-$42 million from PreventionGenetics,

  • Precision Oncology revenue of $580-$590 million, including the divestiture of the Oncotype DX Genomic Prostate Score® test, and

  • COVID-19 testing revenue of $50-$60 million.

Revenue guidance has been updated from the previously expected range of $1,985-$2,032 million, which assumed:

  • Screening revenue of $1,350-$1,372 million, including $40-$42 million from PreventionGenetics,

  • Precision Oncology revenue of $595-$610 million, and

  • COVID-19 testing revenue of $40-$50 million.

Non-GAAP disclosure

In addition to the company's financial results determined in accordance with U.S. GAAP, the company provides non-GAAP measures that it determines to be useful in evaluating its operating performance. The company presents EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, as well as non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP gross profit. EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA consist of net loss after adjustment for those items shown in the table below. The company defines non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin as GAAP gross profit and GAAP gross margin, respectively, excluding amortization of acquired intangible assets. The amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets used in the calculation of non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin pertain only to the amortization associated with developed technology acquired and recorded through purchase accounting transactions. The amortization of these intangible assets will recur in future periods until such intangible assets have been fully amortized. The company believes that these non-GAAP measures are useful in evaluating the company's operating performance. The company uses this non-GAAP financial information to evaluate ongoing operations and for internal planning and forecasting purposes. Non-GAAP financial information, when taken collectively, may be helpful to investors because it provides consistency and comparability with past financial performance. However, non-GAAP financial information is presented for supplemental information purposes only, has limitations as an analytical tool and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for financial information presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. For example, non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP gross profit exclude the amortization of acquired intangible assets although such measures include the revenue associated with the acquisitions. For a reconciliation of these non-GAAP measures to GAAP, see below "EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA Reconciliations" and "Non-GAAP Gross Profit and Non-GAAP Gross Margin Reconciliations."

About Cologuard

The Cologuard test was approved by the FDA in August 2014, and results from Exact Sciences' prospective 90-site, point-in-time, 10,000-patient pivotal trial were published in the New England Journal of Medicine in March 2014. The Cologuard test is included in the American Cancer Society's (2018) colorectal cancer screening guidelines and the recommendations of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (2021) and National Comprehensive Cancer Network (2016). The Cologuard test is indicated to screen adults 45 years of age and older who are at average risk for colorectal cancer by detecting certain DNA markers and blood in the stool. Do not use the Cologuard test if you have had precancer, have inflammatory bowel disease and certain hereditary syndromes, or have a personal or family history of colorectal cancer. The Cologuard test is not a replacement for colonoscopy in high risk patients. The Cologuard test performance in adults ages 45-49 is estimated based on a large clinical study of patients 50 and older. The Cologuard test performance in repeat testing has not been evaluated.

The Cologuard test result should be interpreted with caution. A positive test result does not confirm the presence of cancer. Patients with a positive test result should be referred for diagnostic colonoscopy. A negative test result does not confirm the absence of cancer. Patients with a negative test result should discuss with their doctor when they need to be tested again. Medicare and most major insurers cover the Cologuard test. For more information about the Cologuard test, visit cologuard.com. Rx only.

 _______________________

(1) Beginning in the first quarter of 2022, the Company made an update to its presentation of non-GAAP financial measures following guidance from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The Company no longer includes research and development charges from asset acquisitions as an adjustment to EBITDA. Included in EBITDA during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, is a charge to research and development expense of $33.1 million and $85.3 million from the Company acquiring a worldwide exclusive license to the proprietary Targeted Digital Sequencing ("TARDIS") technology from The Translational Genomics Research Institute ("TGen") in January 2021 and the Company's acquisition of PFS Genomics, Inc. in the second quarter of 2021. The acquisitions were treated as asset acquisitions under U.S. GAAP and resulted in the full amounts being charged to research and development expense.


(2) Beginning in the first quarter of 2022, the Company made an update to its non-GAAP measures policy to include the Company's 401(k) match expense in the calculation of adjusted EBITDA. The Company matches a portion of Exact Sciences employees' contributions annually in the form of the Company's common stock. Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021 has been updated accordingly for comparative purposes. Of the $64.5 million and $60.8 million incurred for the three months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, $56.4 million and $53.9 million is related to stock-based compensation, respectively, and $8.1 million and $6.9 million is related to the 401(k) match expense, respectively. Of the $130.0 million and $132.0 million incurred for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, $108.9 million and $117.0 million is related to stock-based compensation, respectively, and $21.1 million and $15.1 million is related to the 401(k) match expense, respectively.


(3) Represents acquisition and related integration costs incurred as a result of the Company's business combinations and asset acquisitions, a majority of which relates to our acquisition of Thrive Earlier Detection Corp. ("Thrive") for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021. Stock-based compensation including the incremental fair value of assumed stock awards and accelerated vesting from post-acquisition qualified termination events was zero for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to $2.4 million and $102.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively. For the six months ended June 30, 2021, $5.2 million of total stock-based compensation costs were related to stock awards that were cash-settled. Legal and other professional service fees were $1.4 million and $2.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively. Legal and other professional service fees were $4.1 million and $19.3 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively. A gain of $25.1 million and $51.8 million was incurred for the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively, resulting from the remeasurement of the contingent consideration liabilities in connection with business combinations. An expense of $6.3 million and $9.2 million was incurred for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021, respectively, resulting from the remeasurement of the contingent consideration liabilities in connection with business combinations.


(4) Represents severance costs as a result of proactive measures the Company put in place to address the impact of the inflationary environment and other macroeconomic trends. This includes $2.5 million in stock-based compensation expense due to the accelerated vesting of stock awards. This also includes certain restructuring charges incurred as a result of a reorganization of the Company's international operations.


(5) During the second quarter of 2022, the Company determined that the acquired developed technology intangible asset recorded as part of the acquisition of Paradigm Diagnostics, Inc. was impaired due to lower than anticipated performance of the underlying product. As a result, the Company recorded a non-cash, pre-tax impairment of $6.6 million.
