OraSure Announces Full-Year and Fourth Quarter 2012 Financial Results

BETHLEHEM, Pa., Feb. 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OraSure Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:OSUR), a market leader in oral fluid diagnostics, today announced its consolidated financial results for the full-year and fourth quarter of 2012.

Quarterly Highlights

  • Consolidated net revenues were $87.8 million for the full-year 2012, a 7% increase from the comparable period of 2011. Net revenues for the current period included $14.3 million from the Company's molecular collection systems subsidiary, DNA Genotek Inc. ("DNAG"), acquired in August 2011. DNAG net revenues from the August 17, 2011 acquisition date through December 31, 2011 were $6.2 million.
     
  • Consolidated net revenues were $22.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, a 7% decrease from the comparable quarter of 2011. This decrease was primarily the result of lower sales of the Company's substance abuse testing and cryosurgical systems products.
     
  • Consolidated net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $15.1 million, or $0.29 per share, which compares to a net loss of $8.8 million, or $0.19 per share, for 2011. The full-year net loss for 2012 included $9.9 million in costs associated with the commercialization of the Company's OraQuick® In-Home HIV test.
     
  • Consolidated net loss for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $5.9 million, or $0.11 per share, which compares to net income of $115,000, or $0.00 per share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. The fourth quarter 2012 net loss included $5.2 million in costs associated with the OraQuick® In-Home HIV test commercialization.  
     
  • Included in the 2012 full-year and fourth quarter revenues were gross sales of the OraQuick®  In-Home test of $902,000, which were reduced by trade spend, cash discounts and an estimate for returns and allowances resulting in net revenues of $546,000 recorded for each period. Revenue for this product is recognized upon the consummation of a sale to a retail customer either in a store or over the internet.
     
  • Cash totaled $87.9 million at December 31, 2012 compared to $23.9 million at December 31, 2011.

"The highlight of 2012 was the receipt of FDA approval of our OraQuick® In-Home test," said Douglas A. Michels, President and CEO of OraSure Technologies. "We now have the first and only rapid HIV test available for use by consumers. During the fourth quarter, we launched our national public relations and advertising campaign and began selling this product to retailers across the country. Apart from the commercial opportunity for our Company, we believe the OraQuick® In-Home HIV test will significantly benefit public health by offering individuals who might not otherwise get tested a simple and confidential way to learn their HIV status in the comfort of their own homes."

Financial Results

Net product revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased 6% primarily as a result of a full year of molecular collection system sales and higher cryosurgical systems sales. These increases were partially offset by lower sales of the Company's infectious disease testing, substance abuse testing and insurance risk assessment products. Product revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2012 decreased 7% primarily as a result of lower sales of the Company's substance abuse testing and cryosurgical systems products. These decreases were partially offset by higher sales of infectious disease testing and molecular collection systems products. 

Licensing and product development revenues for the year ended December 31, 2012 increased to $2.1 million from $1.2 million for the full-year of 2011. This increase was primarily attributed to a $1.0 million milestone payment received under the Company's HCV collaboration agreement with Merck, partially offset by lower royalties under a license related to the Company's cryosurgical patents. The HCV collaboration with Merck has since been terminated. Licensing and product development revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 and 2011 were $198,000 and $191,000, respectively, reflecting royalties related to the Company's cryosurgical patents. 

Consolidated gross margin for each of the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 was 63%. Consolidated gross margin for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was 60% compared to 62% for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The current quarter gross margin was negatively impacted by a change in  product mix and a decline in the absorption of labor and overhead costs.  

For the year ended December 31, 2012, consolidated operating expenses were $71.8 million, an increase over the $61.1 million reported for the year ended December 31, 2011. This increase resulted from the inclusion of a full-year of DNAG operating expenses and $9.9 million of costs related to the OraQuick® In-Home HIV Test commercialization. These increases were partially offset by lower clinical trial costs related to the Company's OraQuick® In-Home HIV test. 

Consolidated operating expenses increased to $19.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, from $14.9 million in the comparable period of 2011. This increase was the result of higher costs related to the commercialization of the Company's OraQuick® In-Home HIV test. The current quarter expenses included $5.2 million of promotional and advertising costs related to this product.

For the year and three months ended December 31, 2012, the Company recorded an income tax benefit of $1.4 million and $259,000, respectively, associated with the DNAG loss before income taxes and certain Canadian research and development and investment tax credits. The income tax benefit recorded for the full year of 2012 was negatively impacted by a second quarter adjustment to the Company's Canadian deferred tax liability to reflect a change in the enacted Canadian provincial income tax rates.

Cash totaled $87.9 million at December 31, 2012 compared to $23.9 million at December 31, 2011. Working capital was $103.5 million at December 31, 2012 compared to $30.9 million at December 31, 2011. In July 2012, the Company completed a secondary offering of 6.1 million shares of its common stock, resulting in net proceeds of $70.2 million after expenses of the offering.

First Quarter 2013 Outlook

The Company expects total consolidated net revenues to range from $20.0 to $21.0 million and is projecting a consolidated net loss of approximately $0.18 - $0.19 per share for the first quarter of 2013.

Revenues projected for the first quarter of 2013 are expected to be sequentially down from the fourth quarter of 2012 primarily as a result of lower infectious disease testing sales to the professional market. During the past several years, the first quarter of each year has historically been the lowest revenue quarter of the year for this part of the Company's base business, while the fourth quarter has been the highest. 

The projected net loss for the first quarter includes the impact of the medical device tax imposed under the Affordable Care Act and higher patent royalties payable on the Company's OraQuick® professional products under a litigation settlement previously reached with Alere (formerly Inverness Medical) in 2009. In addition, this projection includes approximately $7.3 million in advertising and promotional costs related to the Company's OraQuick® In-Home HIV test.
