MENLO PARK, Calif., Aug. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (NASDAQ: PACB) today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2020 was $17.1 million, compared with $24.6 million for the same period of 2019. Instrument revenue for the second quarter of 2020 was $8.9 million, compared with $12.7 million for the same period of 2019. Consumables revenue for the second quarter of 2020 was $4.8 million compared with $8.6 million for the same period of 2019. Service and other revenue for the second quarter of 2020 was $3.3 million compared with $3.4 million for the same period of 2019.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2020 was $6.6 million, resulting in a gross margin of 38.7%. Gross profit for the second quarter of 2019 was $9.6 million, resulting in a gross margin of 39.0%.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2020 totaled $30.1 million, compared to $34.0 million for the same period of 2019. Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2020 and 2019 included non-cash stock-based compensation of $2.8 million and $3.6 million, respectively.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2020 was $23.1 million, compared to $24.6 million for the same period of 2019.

Cash, cash equivalents and investments, excluding restricted cash, at June 30, 2020 totaled $120.0 million, compared to $49.1 million at December 31, 2019.

As previously announced, in January 2020, we and Illumina mutually agreed to terminate the Agreement and Plan of Merger (as amended, the “Merger Agreement”). As part of our agreement to terminate the Merger Agreement, Illumina paid us a $98.0 million reverse termination fee in January 2020, from which we paid our financial advisor associated fees of $6.0 million in April 2020, which is less than the amount we initially expected. The $98.0 million in cash we received from Illumina is recorded as a short-term liability and is expected to be subsequently recorded as other income after September 30, 2020 when all contingency clauses are expected to lapse. In addition, during the first quarter ended March 31, 2020, as previously agreed to pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, Illumina paid us cash payments (“Continuation Advances”) of $34.0 million, which resulted in a gain of $34.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 and six months ended June 30, 2020.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic

We have implemented various measures to help protect our employees while continuing to support our customers. In accordance with local and state guidelines, a large number of our Menlo Park-based employees are working remotely from their homes. Additionally, we have implemented health and safety practices in accordance with evolving government and public health agency guidelines. However, as Pacific Biosciences is a designated essential business, we continue to provide direct support to our customers, including those customers working on COVID-19 related research, testing, treatment, and prevention. This support includes consumable and instrument shipments, field support, and limited wet-lab activities.

Financial results for the first six months of 2020 were negatively impacted as many of our customers in multiple regions around the world shut down operations for various periods of time in efforts to curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. This resulted in lower product revenues for the first six months of 2020 compared to the same period of 2019. Due to the uncertain scope and duration of the pandemic, we cannot reasonably estimate the future impact to our operations and financial results.

As noted above, there were provisions in the Merger Agreement to provide us with significant funding in the event that the merger did not close. As a result, we ended the second quarter of 2020 with $120.0 million in Cash and Investments. However, we will continue to monitor our operating expenses and cash flows in response to the evolving market conditions.
