Oxford Immunotec Reports Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

OXFORD, United Kingdom and MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Nov. 03, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Immunotec Global PLC (Nasdaq: OXFD) (the “Company”), a global diagnostics company, today announced third quarter 2020 financial results.

“Our TB revenues rebounded significantly across all geographies in the third quarter and we expect the business to return to year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter,” said Dr. Peter Wrighton-Smith, Chief Executive Officer. He continued “Additionally, we have increased confidence in the role our T-SPOT® T cell detection technology can play in SARS-CoV-2; and are now advancing IVD test development towards a submission to the US and European regulatory authorities.”

Revenues, broken out by geographic location, were as follows, in millions:

    Three Months Ended September30, 2020  
            Percent Change  
    2020   2019   As Reported   Constant Currency (1)  
                   
United States $ 4.4 $ 5.7   (23 )%   (23 )%  
Europe & ROW   1.7   2.7   (37 )%   (40 )%  
Asia   13.3   12.8   4 %   3 %  
Total Revenue $ 19.4 $ 21.2   (8 )%   (9 )%  
                   

(1) Constant currency basis is a non-GAAP financial measure. Changes in revenue include the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. We use the non-GAAP financial measure "constant currency basis" in our filings to show changes in our revenue without giving effect to period-to-period currency fluctuations. We consider the use of a period over period revenue comparison on a constant currency basis to be helpful to investors, as it provides a revenue growth measure free of positive or negative volatility due to currency fluctuations. This non-GAAP financial measure may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, limiting its usefulness for comparison purposes. Moreover, presentation of revenue on a constant currency basis is provided for year-over-year comparison purposes, and investors should be cautioned that the effect of changing foreign currency exchange rates has an actual effect on our operating results.

Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Revenue for the third quarter of 2020 was $19.4 million, representing an 8% decrease from third quarter 2019 revenue of $21.2 million. On a constant currency basis, revenue decreased 9% versus the prior year period.

United States revenue was $4.4 million in the third quarter of 2020, representing a 23% decrease from revenue of $5.7 million in the prior year period. The decrease was driven by the impact of COVID-19 on testing volumes, although volumes continue to recover. Testing volumes increased sequentially from August to September and overall revenue in the third quarter increased $3.2 million from the second quarter.

Europe & rest of world, or Europe & ROW, revenue was $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2020, representing a 37% decrease compared to the third quarter of 2019. On a constant currency basis, Europe & ROW decreased 40% versus the third quarter of 2019. The decrease was driven by the impact of COVID-19 on testing volumes, although revenues improved sequentially from the second quarter by nearly $700,000.

Asia revenue was $13.3 million in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 4% compared to 2019 third quarter revenue of $12.8 million, and a new record for revenues for this region. On a constant currency basis, Asia revenue increased 3% versus the third quarter of 2019. The increase was driven by both a recovery in volume, closer to the pre-COVID-19 levels across the region, and better price performance. Sequentially, revenue increased by $9.7 million versus the second quarter.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2020 was $14.9 million, a decrease of $630,000 from gross profit of $15.5 million in the same period of 2019. Gross margin was 76.4%, an increase of 340 basis points from gross margin of 73.0% in the third quarter of 2019.

Operating expenses were $14.6 million in the third quarter of 2020, a decrease of $783,000 compared to $15.4 million in the third quarter of 2019.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2020 was $149,000, or $0.01 per share on both a basic and diluted basis, compared to net income of $717,000, or $0.03 per share on both a basic and diluted basis, in the third quarter of 2019. 

EBITDA for the third quarter of 2020 was $507,000 compared to $956,000 in the third quarter of 2019. Adjusted EBITDA was $1.7 million for the third quarter of 2020 compared to $1.9 million in the same period in 2019. Both EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures.

Business Outlook

We expect fourth quarter revenues to be between $19.0 to $20.0 million, assuming that testing volumes continue to recover from the impact of COVID-19 during the remainder of 2020.

(1) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures that we calculate as net income (loss), adjusted for the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters that we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations. We believe that these measures provide useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and Board of Directors. Our presentation of these measures is not made in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and our computation of these measures may vary from others in the industry. Our use of these measures has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP.
