UPPSALA, Sweden, May 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Olink Holding AB (publ) (“Olink”) (Nasdaq: OLK) today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter of 2022.

Highlights

  • First quarter 2022 revenue totaled $22.7 million, representing year over year growth of 66% on a reported basis and 72% on a constant currency adjusted like-for-like basis

  • First quarter cumulative Explore customer installations reached 27, with 9 additional Signature Q100 placements

  • Explore revenue of $15.7 million accounted for 69% of total first quarter revenue, with Explore Kit revenue totaling $2.1 million, or 13% of total Explore revenue

  • First quarter kits revenue and analysis services revenue represented 18% and 73% of total revenue, respectively

  • First quarter 2022 adjusted EBITDA was ($9.1) million, with a net loss of ($12.2) million; compared to First quarter 2021 adjusted EBITDA of ($3.7) million and net loss of ($14.3) million

  • Maintained full year 2022 guidance, with revenue expected to be in the range of $138 million to $145 million, representing growth of 45% - 53%

“Olink continued its strong performance in the first quarter of 2022, building on the considerable progress achieved last year,” said Jon Heimer, CEO of Olink. “We are well-positioned to achieve our goals, and to drive continued robust growth this year, next year, and beyond."

First quarter financial results
“Olink’s strategy of controlled investment and solid execution was readily apparent during the first quarter,” said Oskar Hjelm, CFO of Olink. "We believe our combination of disciplined financial management, strong growth prospects, and best-in-class product platform, will drive long term value.”

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2022 was $22.7 million, as compared to $13.6 million for the first quarter of 2021, growing 66% year over year.

First quarter 2022 kits revenue of $4.0 million represented 18% of our total revenue, compared to 21% for the first quarter of 2021; and grew 41% year over year primarily as a result of continued Explore growth, but also increased Target revenue.

Analysis services revenue for the first quarter of 2022 was $16.6 million, as compared to $9.6 million for the first quarter of 2021, representing 74% growth.

Other revenue was $2.1 million for the first quarter of 2022, as compared to $1.2 million for the first quarter of 2021. Other revenue growth was driven primarily by Signature Q100 placements.

By geography, revenue during the first quarter of 2022 was $9.7 million in Americas, $10.1 million in EMEA (including Sweden), and $2.8 million in China and RoW (including Japan).

Adjusted EBITDA was ($9.1) million for the first quarter of 2022, as compared to ($3.7) million for the first quarter of 2021.

Adjusted gross profit was $14.2 million in the first quarter of 2022, as compared to $9.2 million in the first quarter of 2021; and gross profit was $13.3 million in the first quarter of 2022, as compared to $8.6 million in the first quarter of 2021.

By segment, adjusted gross profit margin for kits was 89% for the first quarter of 2022, as compared to 82% for the first quarter of 2021; and gross profit margin for kits was 85% for the first quarter of 2022, as compared to 79% for the first quarter of 2021.

First quarter 2022 adjusted gross profit margin for analysis services was 58% as compared to 64% in the first quarter of 2021; and gross profit margin for analysis services was 54% as compared to 59% in the first quarter of 2021. The decline in analysis services margin was driven primarily by the continued expansion of Olink’s lab capacity and associated increased personnel costs.

First quarter 2022 gross profit margin and adjusted gross profit margin for Other was 47%, as compared to 62% for the first quarter of 2021.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2022 were $29.5 million, as compared to $22.4 million for the first quarter of 2021. The increase was largely due to continued and accelerated investment in Olink's commercial organization and research and development and driven by additional costs as a public company as well.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2022 was ($12.2) million, as compared to a net loss of ($14.3) million for the first quarter of 2021. Net loss per share for the first quarter of 2022 was ($0.10) based on a weighted average number of outstanding shares of 119,010,097 as compared to a net loss per share of ($0.48) in the first quarter of 2021 based on a weighted average number of outstanding shares of 38,926,170.

2022 guidance
Olink maintains its full year 2022 revenue guidance range of $138 million to $145 million and continues to expect revenue will be weighted toward the second half of the year and fourth quarter specifically.

Statement regarding use of non IFRS financial measures
We present certain non-IFRS financial measures because they are used by our management to evaluate our operating performance and formulate business plans. We believe that the use of these non-IFRS measures facilitates investors’ assessment of our operating performance. We caution readers that amounts presented in accordance with our definitions of adjusted EBITDA, adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross profit margin and adjusted gross profit margin by segment may not be the same as similar measures used by other companies. Not all companies and Wall Street analysts calculate the non-IFRS measures we use in the same manner. We compensate for these limitations by reconciling each of these non-IFRS measures to the nearest IFRS performance measure, which should be considered when evaluating our performance. We encourage you to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Use of forward-looking statements
This press release contains forward-looking statements that are based on management’s beliefs and assumptions and on information currently available to management. All statements contained in this release other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements, including statements regarding our 2022 revenue outlook, our Explore externalizations, our ability to develop, commercialize and achieve market acceptance of our current and planned products and services, our research and development efforts, and other matters regarding our business strategies, use of capital, results of operations and financial position, and plans and objectives for future operations. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by the words “may,” “will,” “could,” “would,” “should,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “predict,” “project,” “potential,” “continue,” “ongoing” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology, although not all forward-looking statements contain these words. These statements involve risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements to be materially different from the information expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks, uncertainties and other factors are described under the caption "Risk Factors" in our Form 20-F (Commission file number 001-40277) and elsewhere in the documents we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time. We caution you that forward-looking statements are based on a combination of facts and factors currently known by us and our projections for the future, about which we cannot be certain. As a result, the forward-looking statements may not prove to be accurate. The forward-looking statements in this press release represent our views as of the date hereof. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements for any reason, except as required by law.
