Fourth Quarter 2021 Results

Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $636.9 million, versus $809.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2020. The change in sales from the fourth quarter of 2020 was mostly driven by a $249 million revenue decline of the Sofia 2 Flu + SARS antigen FIA in the quarter versus 2020. Also impacting revenue was a shift in product mix for our Rapid Immunoassay COVID-19 products from higher-priced Sofia products sold in the professional market to lower-priced QuickVue products sold in the retail, pharmacy and employer testing markets. Additionally, Molecular Diagnostics Solutions revenue decreased due to lower volumes and selling prices for our COVID-19 PCR products. Cardiometabolic Immunoassay revenue in the fourth quarter of 2021 were lower compared to the fourth quarter of 2020 driven primarily by Beckman BNP products, due to the transition and settlement agreements with Beckman Coulter for the BNP business. Currency exchange had a favorable impact of $2.0 million.

Rapid Immunoassay product revenue in the fourth quarter of 2021 was $521.0 million. Sofia sales were $92.8 million in the quarter, compared to $620.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. This decline was due to the lower Sofia 2 Flu + SARS Antigen FIA revenue, as well as customer shift to the QuickVue At-Home COVID-19 test. This change was offset by an increase in QuickVue At-Home OTC COVID-19 test sales, which were $427.0 million in the quarter, compared to $9.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Cardiometabolic Immunoassay revenue totaled $52.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. The decrease from the fourth quarter of 2020 was primarily due to the impact of the transition and settlement agreements with Beckman Coulter for the BNP business. Molecular Diagnostic Solutions revenue decreased $45.5 million from the fourth quarter of 2020 to $50.9 million due to a decrease in Lyra® SARS-CoV-2 assay revenue, partially offset by an increase in Solana® product revenue. Specialized Diagnostic Solutions revenue increased 6% from the fourth quarter of 2020 to $12.2 million.

"Quidel entered 2021 with considerable momentum, and throughout a transformational year, we leveraged that energy to open new channels for sustainable, long-term growth on a global scale," said Douglas Bryant, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quidel. "Our performance was exceptional across the board ─ from shipping a record number of QuickVue COVID-19 and Sofia SARS antigen tests, to the successful launch of our Savanna MDx instrumented system in select ex-U.S. markets, to our definitive agreement to acquire Ortho ─ the Quidel team overcame obstacles and seized opportunities to dramatically broaden the range of patients, partners and providers we serve.

"Moving beyond the fourth quarter, demand for COVID-19 testing remains elevated, and despite ebbs and flows, we continue our previously announced work to accelerate development and production of tests to help meet demand from government, institutions and individuals," Mr. Bryant said. "These efforts have helped to expand our footprint at the point of care, with the additional benefit of introducing our full portfolio of rapid diagnostic assays to engaged customer groups."

Mr. Bryant noted, "While the year’s headlines were mostly about COVID-19, we remained focused on developing the growth drivers that will shape our future when COVID-19 ultimately reaches the endemic stage. Our key near-term opportunity is the anticipated U.S. launch of our revolutionary Savanna multiplex molecular platform, which allows for testing of up to 12 pathogens from a single sample in less than 25 minutes. Based on customer reviews in Europe, we believe Savanna will be a major growth driver, both in the U.S. and globally, for years to come.

"The timing of the Savanna launch, paired with our definitive agreement to acquire Ortho is fortuitous and makes our long-term growth story so compelling," Mr. Bryant continued. "We believe that the portfolios and customer base of the combined company will prove to be powerfully complementary, and that the addition of Ortho’s global commercial operations will provide opportunities to significantly accelerate market penetration of Savanna as well as our full range of diagnostics worldwide. These transformational opportunities more than double our addressable market and fuel our excitement for 2022 and beyond."

Mr. Bryant concluded, "As we close the books on 2021, I want to thank our Quidel team for the courage, creativity and resilience they showed personally and collectively in driving our business forward amid all the challenges of a second pandemic year. Their steadfast commitment to our mission of advancing diagnostics to improve human health is responsible for our success as a company and as a corporate citizen."

Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2021 was $489.3 million, a decrease of $212.2 million, driven by lower revenue, and product mix shift from high margin Sofia SARS products to lower margin QuickVue COVID-19 products, partially offset by increased absorption driven by the higher volumes produced in the current quarter. Gross margin was 77%, compared to 87% in the fourth quarter of 2020, due to the same factors. R&D expense increased by $0.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2021 as compared to the same period last year, mainly due to increased spending on third-party services and clinical trials for QuickVue and TriageTrue products and increased compensation costs. Sales and marketing expense increased by $18.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, as compared to the same period in 2020, primarily due to increased freight and promotional spending driven by OTC marketing, corporate sponsorships, higher travel and meeting costs, as well as higher labor costs associated with additional headcount, partially offset by lower bad debt expense. G&A expense increased by $2.3 million in the quarter due to the higher compensation costs and increased charitable contributions, partially offset by lower legal fees. Acquisition and integration costs of $7.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2021 were primarily related to due diligence and other costs mostly associated with the pending Ortho transaction.

In the fourth quarter of 2021, Quidel recorded an income tax expense of $84.1 million, as compared to $145.4 million in the same quarter last year. The lower tax expense for the three months ended December 31, 2021 as compared to the same period in the prior year is a result of lower pre-tax profits.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $291.3 million, or $6.85 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $470.1 million, or $10.78 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2020. On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the fourth quarter of 2021 was $309.8 million, or $7.29 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $482.8 million, or $11.07 per diluted share, for the same period in 2020.

Results for the Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2021

Total revenue for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 increased 2% to $1,698.6 million, from $1,661.7 million in 2020. The 2% increase in revenue was driven primarily by incremental COVID-19 Rapid Immunoassay product sales, and to a lesser extent, by increased sales of Cardiometabolic Immunoassay products. This growth was partially offset by declines in revenue for Molecular Diagnostic Solutions and Specialized Diagnostic Solutions products. Foreign exchange had a positive impact of $7.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021.

Rapid Immunoassay product revenue increased 5% in the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 to $1,197.5 million. This was driven by QuickVue sales, which increased by $563.2 million from 2020 to $611.5 million, partially offset by a 47% decline in Sofia revenue to $582.2 million. Cardiometabolic Immunoassay revenue totaled $255.8 million in the twelve months ended December 31, 2021, representing a 5% increase from 2020. Molecular Diagnostic Solutions revenue decreased $22.5 million to $200.5 million, primarily due to an anticipated decrease in revenue from Lyra COVID-19 products. Specialized Diagnostic Solutions revenue for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 was $44.8 million, down 12% from the prior year, driven by lower sales of our Cell Culture products, primarily due to the lack of a respiratory season in early 2021.

Gross profit in the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 was $1,270.9 million, a decrease from 2020, driven by product mix shift from higher margin Sofia SARS products to lower margin QuickVue COVID-19 products and lower selling prices for SARS products. Gross margin was 75% in 2021, down from 81% in 2020 due to the same factors. R&D expense increased by $11.4 million in the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 as compared to the same period last year, primarily due to increased spending on Savanna and QuickVue OTC projects, partially offset by decreased spending on Sofia development projects. Sales and marketing expense increased by $41.4 million in the twelve months ended December 31, 2021, as compared to the same period in 2020, due to increased freight expense, increased promotional spending associated with the launch of the QuickVue At-Home OTC COVID-19 test, corporate sponsorships, higher labor costs and higher travel and meeting costs, partially offset by lower bad debt expense. G&A expense increased by $17.7 million in 2021, primarily due to increased compensation costs, increased charitable contributions, higher stock compensation expense and increased costs for third-party services. Acquisition and integration costs of $9.6 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 were primarily related to due diligence and other costs mostly associated with the pending Ortho transaction.

Net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 was $704.2 million, or $16.43 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $810.3 million, or $18.60 per diluted share, for the same period in 2020. On a non-GAAP basis, net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2021 was $759.7 million, or $17.72 per diluted share, as compared to net income of $868.4 million, or $19.92 per diluted share, for the same period in 2020.

Non-GAAP Financial Information
