OXFORD, United Kingdom and MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Nov. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Oxford Immunotec Global PLC (Nasdaq: OXFD), a global, high-growth diagnostics company, today announced third quarter 2018 financial results.

By revenue type, total revenues were, in millions:

Product $    15.1   $    13.4   12 %
Service      1.0        1.6   -40 %
Total Revenue $    16.1   $    15.0   7 %
             

By geography, total revenues were, in millions:

  Three Months Ended September 30,
          Percent  Change
    2018     2017   As Reported   Constant
Currency
(a)
               
United States $   2.9   $    3.4   -15 %   -15 %
Europe & ROW   2.3       2.2   3 %   4 %
Asia     10.9       9.4   16 %   18 %
Total Revenue $   16.1   $   15.0   7 %   8 %
               

 (a) 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.

Third Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Revenue for the third quarter of 2018 was $16.1 million, representing a 7% increase from third quarter 2017 revenue of $15.0 million. On a constant currency basis, revenue growth was 8% versus the prior year period.

2018 third quarter product revenue was $15.1 million, representing a 12% increase from product revenue of $13.4 million in the third quarter of 2017. Service revenue for the third quarter of 2018 was $1.0 million, down 40% from 2017 third quarter service revenue of $1.6 million. The decrease in service revenue was driven by an expected decline in blood donor screening revenue.

United States revenue was $2.9 million in the third quarter of 2018, representing a 15% decline from revenue of $3.4 million in the prior year period. Growth in our core tuberculosis business was offset by an expected decline in blood donor screening revenue.

Europe & ROW revenue was $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2018, representing a 3% increase compared to the third quarter of 2017. On a constant currency basis, Europe & ROW revenue increased 4% versus the third quarter of 2017.

Asia revenue was $10.9 million in the third quarter of 2018, representing an increase of 16% compared to 2017 third quarter revenue of $9.4 million. On a constant currency basis, Asia revenue increased 18% versus the third quarter of 2017.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2018 was $11.5 million, an increase of approximately $1.7 million from gross profit of $9.8 million in the same period of 2017. Gross margin was 71.5%, an increase of 650 basis points from gross margin of 65.0% in the third quarter of 2017.

Operating expenses were $16.5 million in the third quarter of 2018, a decrease of approximately $11.1 million compared to $27.6 million in the third quarter of 2017. Excluding one-time items, operating expenses for the third quarter of 2018 decreased approximately $900k compared to the third quarter of 2017.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2018 was $3.5 million, or $0.13 per share, compared to $16.8 million, or $0.70 per share, in the third quarter of 2017. Net loss per share was based on 26,033,550 and 24,123,574 weighted average ordinary shares outstanding for the third quarters of 2018 and 2017, respectively. 

EBITDA for the third quarter of 2018 was $(1.2) million compared to $(14.7) million in the third quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA was $2.3 million for the third quarter of 2018 compared to $(2.5) million in the same period in 2017. Both EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures.

Quest Diagnostics Completes Acquisition of Our U.S. Laboratory Services Business

On November 6, 2018, Quest Diagnostics completed its previously announced acquisition of our U.S. laboratory services business. The T-SPOT.TB tuberculosis and the Accutix tick-borne disease testing services are now part of Quest Diagnostics’ portfolio of innovative infectious disease testing services. As part of the transaction, we will sell T-SPOT.TB test kits and related accessories to Quest Diagnostics under the terms of a long-term supply agreement. In addition, the parties have entered into a strategic collaboration agreement to drive continued growth of T-SPOT.TB testing in the U.S.

The transaction represents a strategic business shift having a major effect on our operations and financial results. Accordingly, the assets and liabilities of this business have been classified as held for sale and the related operations reported in discontinued operations in our condensed consolidated financial statements for all periods presented.

(a) EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures that we calculate as net 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.

The above table presents a reconciliation of net loss, the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for each of the periods indicated.
