MENLO PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Personalis, Inc. (Nasdaq: PSNL), a leader in advanced genomics for cancer, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2019.

Third Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Record revenues of $17.2 million in the third quarter of 2019, versus $11.7 million in the third quarter of 2018, an increase of 47%
  • Received a new $38.1 million task order from the VA’s Million Veteran Program, increasing our unfulfilled orders with the VA MVP to approximately $82.5 million
  • Announced important customer and partner relationships, including agreements with Invectys, the University of New Mexico and the New Mexico Cancer Care Alliance

“I’m very pleased that we again achieved record quarterly revenues and grew 47% over the third quarter of last year. In September, we received a new order from the VA’s Million Veteran Program, which increased our cumulative orders received to date from the VA MVP to approximately $145 million,” said John West, Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, many of our biopharmaceutical and prospective customers are actively evaluating our new platform ImmunoID NeXT™ and feedback has been resoundingly positive. We continue to anticipate ramping revenue volume of the NeXT platform increasingly throughout 2020.”

Third Quarter 2019 Financial Results

Revenues were $17.2 million in the three months ended September 30, 2019, up 47% from $11.7 million in the same period of the prior year. Third quarter revenue growth was driven by an increase in volume for testing and analytical services provided to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Million Veteran Program (VA MVP). In the third quarter, the VA MVP accounted for $12.9 million, or 75%, of revenues and the remaining $4.3 million, or 25%, was from biopharma and all other customers.

Gross margin was 32.8% for the three months ended September 30, 2019, compared with 38.5% in the same period of the prior year.

Operating expenses were $11.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019, compared with $6.2 million in the same period of the prior year.

Net loss was $6.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019 and net loss per share was $0.22 based on a weighted-average basic and diluted share count of 31.1 million, compared with a net loss of $3.6 million and a net loss per share of $1.19 on a weighted-average basic and diluted share count of 3.1 million last year.

Cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments were $127.3 million as of September 30, 2019.

2019 and 2020 Outlook

Personalis expects full year 2019 revenues to be in the range of $64.5 million to $65.0 million, and full year 2020 revenues to be in the range of $77.5 million to $83.5 million.
