NM – not meaningful

  • Total net revenues for the third quarter of 2023 decreased 23% to $89.2 million from $116.5 million in the third quarter of 2022.
  • Core revenue (all revenue excluding COVID-19 revenue) of $39.0 million in the third quarter increased   7% year-over-year. Core revenue growth was driven by strong HIV sales in the U.S. and international markets. Molecular products revenue in the third quarter increased 17% sequentially but decreased 4% on a year-over-year basis, which was in line with our expectations.
  • COVID-19 revenue of $50.2 million in the third quarter decreased 37% year-over-year.
  • GAAP gross margin percentage was 49.7% in the third quarter of 2023 compared to 39.9% in the third quarter of 2022. Non-GAAP gross margins in the third quarter of 2023 were 50.0% compared to 40.3% in the third quarter of 20221. Gross margins benefited from production efficiencies, cost reduction initiatives, lower manufacturing scrap expense, and changes to InteliSwab® packaging that were implemented during the first quarter of 2023.
  • GAAP operating income in the third quarter of 2023 was $10.9 million compared to $0.9 million in the third quarter of 2022. Non-GAAP operating income was $20.6 million in the third quarter of 2023 compared to $11.7 million in the third quarter of 2022.
  • Cash, cash equivalents, and short-term investments increased to $224.9 million as of September 30, 2023. The $39.0 million increase in our cash balance during the third quarter of 2023 was primarily driven by our improved operational performance, including lower inventory levels. In addition, during the third quarter we received $6.5 million from the U.S. government related to our manufacturing expansion contract.

Recent Business Highlights

  • Received an award for $5.7 million for future orders of InteliSwab® Covid-19 tests from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) through the Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response (ASPR). The tests are available for free to households across the United States as part of the reopening of COVIDtests.gov.
  • Received FDA approval in September for extension of InteliSwab® shelf-life from 18 months to 24 months.
  • Established new distribution agreements to expand our product offerings in international infectious disease diagnostic testing and point-of-care substance abuse testing.
  • Successfully completed the final milestones as part of our contract with the Department of Defense related to the installation and testing of new equipment and automation capabilities at our Opus Way facility in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. With this phase of the expansion completed, we expect to make further progress in consolidating our manufacturing footprint to drive operating efficiencies over the next few years.
  • On track to achieve operating cash flow break-even for the core business by the end of 2024.

Financial Guidance

The Company is guiding to Q4 2023 revenue of $71 to $76 million, which includes core revenue of $33 to $35 million and InteliSwab® revenue of $38 to $41 million. As part of our ongoing focus on enterprise-wide operating efficiency, the Company is on track to exceed the $15 million of annualized cost savings announced in Q1 2023.

About InteliSwab®

OraSure has received Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) from the FDA for its InteliSwab® COVID-19 rapid tests. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has authorized the InteliSwab® COVID-19 Rapid Test for Over-the-Counter (OTC) use without a prescription. The FDA has also authorized the InteliSwab® COVID-19 Rapid Test Pro for professional use in point of care (POC) CLIA-waived settings, and the InteliSwab® COVID-19 Rapid Test Rx for Prescription Home Use. These remarkably simple COVID-19 lateral flow tests use samples self-collected from the lower nostrils. The InteliSwab® test’s unique design incorporates a built-in swab fully integrated into the test stick. After users swab their lower nostrils, the test stick is swirled in a pre-measured buffer solution, and the result appears right on the test stick within 30 minutes, with no instruments, batteries, smartphone or laboratory analysis needed to see the result. With less than one minute of “hands-on time,” it is as simple as “Swab, Swirl, and See.”

This product has not been FDA cleared or approved, but it has been authorized by the FDA under an EUA. The emergency use of this product has been authorized only for the detection of proteins from SARS-CoV-2, not for any other viruses or pathogens. This product is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnosis of COVID-19 under Section 564(b)(1) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb- 3(b)(1), unless the declaration is terminated or authorization is revoked sooner.

Development of the InteliSwab® COVID-19 Rapid Test has been funded in whole or in part with federal funds from the Department of Health and Human Services; Administration for Strategic Preparedness and Response; Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, under contract numbers 75A50120C00061 and 75A50121C00078, utilizing Health Care Enhancement Act (HCEA) funding. The DoD's Defense Assisted Acquisition (DA2) Cell led the manufacturing expansion effort for the InteliSwab® COVID-19 rapid test in coordination with the Department of the Air Force’s Acquisition COVID-19 Task Force (DAF ACT). The manufacturing effort was funded through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to enable and support domestic industrial base expansion for critical medical resources.

Statement Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In this press release, the Company’s financial results and financial guidance are provided in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) and using certain non-GAAP financial measures, including non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating income (loss), and non-GAAP earnings (loss) per share. Management believes that presentation of operating results using these non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplemental information to investors and facilitates the analysis of the Company’s core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods, while excluding certain expenses that may not be indicative of the Company’s recurring core business operating results. In addition, management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors both because they (1) allow for greater transparency with respect to key metrics used by management in its financial and operational decision-making and (2) are used by OraSure’s institutional investors and the analysis community to help them analyze the health of OraSure’s business. Management also uses non-GAAP financial measures to establish budgets and to manage the Company’s business. A reconciliation of the GAAP financial results to non-GAAP financial results is included in the schedules below and a description of the adjustments made to the GAAP financial measures is included at the end of the schedules.

The Company encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand its business. Non-GAAP financial results are reported in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. Further, non-GAAP financial measures, even if similarly titled, may not be calculated in the same manner by all companies, and therefore should not be compared.
