10x Genomics Reports Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Q3 2021 revenue growth of 74% over prior year and 8% over prior quarter
PLEASANTON, Calif., Nov. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- 10X Genomics (Nasdaq: TXG) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.
"Our team delivered strong results this quarter, successfully launching the Chromium X while navigating the complexities of this operating environment," said Serge Saxonov, Co-founder and CEO of 10x Genomics. "Our conviction in the vast opportunity ahead remains as strong as ever, and we will accelerate our investments to continue to innovate, drive scale and fulfill the promise of single cell and spatial biology."
Third Quarter 2021 Financial Results
Revenue was $125.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2021, a 74% increase from $71.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. This increase was primarily the result of increased consumables revenue driven by growth in the instrument installed base.
Gross margin was 80% for the third quarter of 2021, which is flat as compared to 80% for the corresponding prior year period as lower accrued royalties related to the Bio-Rad litigation were offset by the impact in shifting product mix.
Operating expenses were $116.7 million for the third quarter of 2021, a 5% decrease from $122.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2020. This decrease was driven by lower in-process research and development expense this quarter due to the $40.6 million charge during the quarter ended September 30, 2020 related to the acquisition of CartaNA and decreased legal expenses. This decrease was partially offset by increased operating expenses related to higher personnel expenses, including stock-based compensation, increased expenses related to facilities and technology and increased marketing expenses.
Operating loss was $15.9 million for the third quarter of 2021, as compared to $65.3 million for the corresponding prior year period which included $40.6 million of in-process research and development expense related to the acquisition of CartaNA. Operating loss includes $26.0 million of stock-based compensation for the third quarter of 2021, as compared to $13.8 million for the third quarter of 2020.
Net loss was $17.2 million for the third quarter of 2021, as compared to a net loss of $65.8 million for the corresponding prior year period.
Cash and cash equivalents were $600.4 million as of September 30, 2021.
