Looking ahead, we believe recent acquisitions and integrations, coupled with our internal development efforts, will provide access to new and developing markets and improve ease-of-use for customers, enhancing our ability to meet the needs of patients and clinicians as the use of genetics in healthcare continues to accelerate."

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

  • Accessioned approximately 170,000 samples in the third quarter of 2020 compared to 129,000 samples in the third quarter of 2019. Billable volume was approximately 157,000 in the third quarter of 2020
  • Generated revenue of $68.7 million in the third quarter of 2020 compared to $56.5 million in revenue in the third quarter of 2019

  • Achieved gross profit of $22.1 million in the third quarter of 2020 compared to $24.4 million of gross profit in the third quarter of 2019. Non-GAAP gross profit was $26.8 million in the third quarter of 2020

Total operating expense, excluding cost of revenue, for the third quarter of 2020 was $102.9 million. Non-GAAP operating expense was $102.6 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2020 was $102.9 million, or $0.78 net loss per share, compared to a net loss of $78.7 million in the third quarter of 2019, or $0.82 net loss per share. Non-GAAP net loss was $81.7 million, or $0.62 non-GAAP net loss per share, in the third quarter of 2020.

At September 30, 2020, cash, cash equivalents, restricted cash and marketable securities totaled $368.0 million. Net decrease in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash for the quarter was $61.4 million. Cash burn was $64.9 million for the quarter.

Corporate and Scientific Highlights

  • Completed the transaction to bring ArcherDX, a leading genomics analysis company, into Invitae to create a global leader in comprehensive cancer genetics and precision oncology, bringing germline and somatic testing, liquid biopsy and tissue genomic profiling onto a single platform. With both centralized and distributed capabilities, Invitae is now uniquely positioned to provide flexibility in meeting customers' needs.
  • Published significant studies underscoring the use of both germline and somatic sequencing in oncology:
    • A multi-year collaboration with researchers at Mayo Clinic published in JAMA Oncology evaluated universal germline genetic testing for solid tumor cancer patients. The study found one in eight patients with cancer had an inherited, cancer-related gene mutation, half of whom would not have been detected using a standard guidelines based approach and one-third of whom had their therapy changed as a result of their genetics. The data support changing the standard of care to include germline genetic testing for all solid tumor cancer patients.
    • A study published in JAMA Network Open showing tumor-only genetic sequencing misses medically actionable genetic variants in cancer patients that germline genetic tests identify, suggesting the use of both tumor and germline testing to provide the most complete and actionable genetic profiling to inform cancer treatment.
    • Data presented at the American Society of Human Genetics annual meeting, showed one in ten men with prostate cancer harbored genetic changes linked to hereditary cancer syndromes and three-quarters of those patients met criteria for changes in their cancer management or treatment based on their genetic findings. Study findings suggest common criteria used to restrict testing would miss clinically important changes for many patients and their families.
  • Began enrollment in a nationwide study to better understand the role of current genetic testing guidelines in ensuring prostate cancer patients receive testing to identify clinically relevant genetic variants that can inform prognosis and support access to targeted therapies.
  • Signed 32 biopharma partnership deals in the quarter.
    • Partnered with Pfizer to offer the BRCA Care genetic testing program, which provides sponsored, no-charge germline BRCA testing for patients diagnosed with HER2-negative locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer in different countries, beginning in Hong Kong, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan and United Arab Emirates.
    • Signed two new partners to the Behind the Seizure program, bringing the total number of biopharma partners in this program to 10.
    • Added two additional partners to Invitae's Detect programs providing no-charge genetic testing for conditions in which testing is underutilized and can improve diagnosis and treatment.
  • Announced the appointment of tech entrepreneur Kimber Lockhart to the company's Board of Directors, noting her expertise and leadership in scaling engineering and digital tools.

Safe Harbor Statement
This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements relating to the company's belief regarding the value and leverage of its global, diversified business; the company's belief regarding the impact of its unique combination of comprehensive menu, durable customer relationships and ability to execute; the importance of the company's recent studies and collaborations; the company's belief regarding the momentum of its business and ability to continue to deliver on its mission to bring genetic information into mainstream medicine; the impact of the company's acquisitions, including its completed merger with ArcherDX, as well as its internal development efforts, partnerships and product offerings; and the company's beliefs regarding its ability to access new and developing markets, improve ease-of-use for customers, and meet the needs of patients and clinicians. Forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially, and reported results should not be considered as an indication of future performance. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: the impact of COVID-19 on the company, and the effectiveness of the efforts it has taken or may take in the future in response thereto; the company's ability to continue to grow its business, including internationally; the company's history of losses; the company's ability to compete; the company's failure to manage growth effectively; the company's need to scale its infrastructure in advance of demand for its tests and to increase demand for its tests; the risk that the company may not obtain or maintain sufficient levels of reimbursement for its tests; the company's failure to successfully integrate or fully realize the anticipated benefits of acquired businesses; risks associated with litigation; the company's ability to use rapidly changing genetic data to interpret test results accurately and consistently; security breaches, loss of data and other disruptions; laws and regulations applicable to the company's business; and the other risks set forth in the company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2020. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date hereof, and Invitae Corporation disclaims any obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement Invitae's consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP), the company is providing several non-GAAP measures, including non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP cost of revenue, non-GAAP operating expense, including non-GAAP research and development, non-GAAP selling and marketing, non-GAAP general and administrative and non-GAAP other income (expense), net, as well as non-GAAP net loss and non-GAAP net loss per share and non-GAAP cash burn. These non-GAAP financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in evaluating the company's ongoing operating results and trends.

Management is excluding from some or all of its non-GAAP operating results (1) amortization of acquired intangible assets, (2) acquisition-related stock-based compensation, (3) post-combination expense related to the acceleration of equity grants or bonus payments in connection with the company's business combinations, (4) adjustments to the fair value of acquisition-related liabilities and (5) acquisition-related income tax benefits. These non-GAAP financial measures are limited in value because they exclude certain items that may have a material impact on the reported financial results. Management accounts for this limitation by analyzing results on a GAAP basis as well as a non-GAAP basis and also by providing GAAP measures in the company's public disclosures.

Cash burn excludes (1) changes in marketable securities, (2) cash received from equity financings and (3) cash received from exercises of warrants. Management believes cash burn is a liquidity measure that provides useful information to management and investors about the amount of cash consumed by the operations of the business. A limitation of using this non-GAAP measure is that cash burn does not represent the total change in cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash for the period because it excludes cash provided by or used for other operating, investing or financing activities. Management accounts for this limitation by providing information about the company's operating, investing and financing activities in the statements of cash flows in the consolidated financial statements in the company's most recent Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Annual Report on Form 10-K and by presenting net cash provided by (used in) operating, investing and financing activities as well as the net increase or decrease in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash in its reconciliation of cash burn.

In addition, other companies, including companies in the same industry, may not use the same non-GAAP measures or may calculate these metrics in a different manner than management or may use other financial measures to evaluate their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of these non-GAAP measures as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, the company's non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. Investors are encouraged to review the non-GAAP reconciliations provided in the tables below.
