    Quotient Limited Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2021 Results and Business Update

    * Significant progress in three targeted areas of MosaiQ development – COVID-19 antibody test, potential new applications, and transfusion diagnostics * Ten commercial placements of MosaiQ platform in Europe and the US * Continued YoY Strong Top Line Growth for Alba by Quotient reagents * Added to Russell 2000® and 3000® IndexesJERSEY, Channel Islands, Aug. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --  Quotient Limited (NASDAQ:QTNT), a commercial-stage diagnostics company (Quotient or the Company), headquartered in Eysins, Switzerland, today reported its first quarter fiscal 2021 results and summarized recent key developments.Quotient currently has three areas of focus related to its proprietary MosaiQ technology: first, Quotient has successfully developed and begun generating revenues from its new MosaiQ COVID-19 antibody test application; second, Quotient is pursuing new applications for its MosaiQ platform; and third, the Company continues to pursue commercialization of its MosaiQ transfusion diagnostic applications. Recently, significant progress has been made in all three areas.COVID-19 antibody test – Independent tests have validated Quotient's earlier findings that the test is extremely accurate. Quotient now has ten COVID-19 antibody test contracts with customers in Europe and the US. FDA Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the MosaiQ COVID-19 Antibody Test is expected soon.Potential New MosaiQ applications – Quotient has started a process of outreach to potential major customers interested in customized microarray menus. With a view to better understand market requirements and preferences these discussions and potential future collaborations will inform future MosaiQ development activity.Transfusion diagnostics -- Field trials of the expanded MosaiQ IH microarray, that were delayed by COVID-19 related shut-downs, have restarted at all three European sites, and the Company expects following completion of those tests to have the first powerful commercial transfusion diagnostics combination, Initial Serological Disease Screening (SDS) and Expanded Immunohematology microarrays, available for sale in Europe in Q1 2021.The Company also announced a continuous strong top line growth for Alba by Quotient reagents for its first quarter ended June 30, 2020.MosaiQ PlatformMosaiQ, Quotient's next-generation platform, is designed to deliver fast immunohematology, serological and molecular disease screening, using a single low volume sample on a high throughput, multimodal multiplexing automated platform. MosaiQ represents a transformative and highly disruptive unified testing system for transfusion diagnostics and beyond. Feasibility to deliver required performance in serological and molecular disease screening has been demonstrated. MosaiQ offers the potential to significantly reduce complexity and improve workflow for our customers. A serological test was developed in April 2020 in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The MosaiQ COVID-19 Antibody Microarray is CE marked and available for distribution in Europe, including Switzerland, and the UK.Regulatory and Commercial Milestones * Results from European independent studies – Separate studies were conducted with independent labs in Madrid, Spain and in Paris, France; the studies confirmed the high-performance characteristics of the Company's MosaiQ COVID-19 Antibody Microarray and led to securing sales contracts with both labs. * US Regulatory approval – 510(k) approval for the Initial SDS microarray and the MosaiQ device is anticipated before the end of calendar year 2020. * Field Trials – Restarted the last site for the Expanded IH field trials in Europe in May. With this, the trial has resumed on all three sites and receipt of CE mark approval is anticipated by Q1 CY2021 * The first powerful transfusion diagnostics commercial combination (Initial SDS and Expanded IH microarrays) expected to be available for sale in Europe by Q1 of calendar year 2021 * Russell 2000® and 3000® Indexes – Quotient was added to the indexes effective June 29, 2020 as part of the 2020 Russell U.S. indexesQuotient CEO Franz Walt commented “I am very pleased with our recent achievements and progress. The roll-out of our COVID-19 antibody test demonstrates the power and flexibility of the MosaiQ platform. The launch of our expanded transfusion menu is now only a few months away. We are encouraged by initial comments from potential customers who have shown a strong interest and appetite for the innovation that MosaiQ represents. Based on that feedback we will decide on which new applications to pursue going forward.”Fiscal Fourth Quarter and Full Year Financial Results“The Alba by Quotient reagent business continues to deliver top line growth, with strong product sales of $8.9 million in the first quarter, up 9.2% from the quarter ended June 30, 2019, with no indications of any significant adverse effects from the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Franz Walt. Mr. Walt added, “This performance was driven by 7.8% growth in sales to OEM customers, while direct product sales grew 8.1%. The initial product sales related to the MosaiQ COVID-19 Antibody test were $0.1 million in the first quarter. In the quarter ended June 30, 2020, gross margin on product sales declined to 39.3% of product sales compared to the gross margin of 44.1% reported in the quarter ended June 30, 2019. Year over year, gross margin was adversely impacted mainly by an increase in expenses attributed to operating restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic”.Key revenue and profit results are summarized below (expressed in thousands, except percentages)  Quarter Ended    June 30,    2020  2019  Revenue:         Product sales —OEM Customers $6,184  $5,737  Product sales — direct customers and distributors  2,629   2,432  Product sales - MosaiQ  111   —  Total revenue $8,924  $8,169            Product sales from standing orders (%)  69%  68%           Gross profit $3,510  $3,606  Gross profit as a % of total revenue  39.3%  44.1% Gross margin on product sales (%)  39.3%  44.1% Operating (loss) $(19,721) $(18,424) The operating loss for the quarter ended June 30, 2020 included legal and advisory fees of $1.0m related to the Company’s termination of its distribution and supply agreement with Ortho Clinical Diagnostics Inc. (OCD) and the related arbitration with OCD. Capital expenditures totaled $0.8 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2020, compared with $1.1 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2019.As at June 30, 2020 Quotient had $94.5 million in available cash and other short-term investments and $155.1 million of debt and $8.7 million in an offsetting long-term cash reserve account.Outlook for the Fiscal Year Ending March 31, 2021 * Total product sales of Alba by Quotient reagents are still expected to be in the range of $32 to $34 million compared to product sales in fiscal 2020 of $31.6 million. A forecast of COVID-19 antibody tests is not currently possible due to the uncertainties related to the development of this new market. No other revenues are expected. * Capital expenditures in the range of $5 to $10 million. * Average monthly cash use for operations in the range of $5 to $6 million excluding potential revenue related to COVID-19 antibody test.Alba by Quotient product sales in the second quarter of fiscal 2021 are expected to be within the range of $7.5 to $8.0 million, compared with $7.1 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2020.The Company is not providing guidance on the operating loss due to the uncertainty around revenues derived from MosaiQ by Quotient COVID-19 antibody tests.Quarterly product sales can fluctuate depending upon the shipment cycles for red blood cell-based products, which account for approximately two-thirds of current product sales. These products typically experience 13 shipment cycles per year, equating to three shipments of each product per quarter, except for one quarter per year when four shipments occur. The timing of shipment of bulk antisera products to OEM customers may also move revenues from quarter to quarter. Some seasonality in demand is also experienced around holiday periods in both Europe and the United States. As a result of these factors, Quotient expects to continue to see seasonality and quarter-to-quarter variations in product sales.The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a basis which assumes that Quotient will continue as a going concern. However, the Company has incurred net losses from operations in each year since it commenced operations in 2007 and had an accumulated deficit of $508.6 million as of June 30, 2020. The Company expects to include disclosure within its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q in respect of certain conditions concerning the Company’s overall liquidity position that raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.Conference CallQuotient will host a conference call on Monday, August 3, 2020 at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss its first quarter fiscal 2021 financial results.
