Date:2/3/2010

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Genomic Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: GHDX) today reported financial results for the year ended December 31, 2009, which included 35 percent revenue growth compared with 2008, and the company becoming cash flow positive.

Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2009 increased to $39.6 million, compared with $31.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2008.  Product revenue from the Oncotype DX® breast cancer test was $39.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, an increase of 26 percent, compared with $30.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2008.  As previously reported, total revenue was affected by a delay in the receipt of approximately $2.5 million in payments which are to be recognized as revenue upon receipt.  The net loss in the fourth quarter of 2009 decreased to $0.3 million, from $2.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2008.  Basic and diluted net loss per share applicable to common stockholders was $0.01 in the fourth quarter of 2009, compared with a basic and diluted net loss per share of $0.08 in the fourth quarter of 2008.

Total revenue for the year ended December 31, 2009 increased to $149.5 million, compared with $110.6 million in 2008.  Product revenue was $146.6 million for the year ended December 31, 2009, compared with $108.7 million in 2008, an increase of 35 percent.  Contract revenue comprised the balance of total revenue for each of these periods.  The net loss for the year ended December 31, 2009 decreased 42 percent to $9.4 million from $16.1 million in 2008.  Basic and diluted net loss per share applicable to common stockholders was $0.33 for the year ended December 31, 2009, compared with a $0.57 basic and diluted net loss per share in 2008.

Cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments at December 31, 2009 were $57.4 million, compared with $58.9 million at September 30, 2009 and $56.7 million at December 31, 2008.

"In 2009, we achieved our goal of becoming a self-sustaining business as our breast cancer franchise continued to grow and cash from operations turned positive, proving that innovative and proprietary R&D and clinically driven value-based pricing combined with a patient-centric service has delivered results," said Kim Popovits, President and Chief Executive Officer of Genomic Health.  "In 2010, we plan to build on this success by expanding worldwide use of our Oncotype DX breast cancer test, driving adoption of our second product, the Oncotype DX colon cancer test, and focusing our R&D investment on pipeline expansion."

Additional Fourth Quarter and Year-End 2009 Financial Results

Approximately 55 percent of product revenue was recorded on an accrual basis and recognized at the time the test results were delivered during the fourth quarter of 2009, reflecting established payment patterns from payors with agreements to pay or contracts in place.

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter 2009 were $39.9 million including cost of product revenues of $8.5 million, compared with total operating expenses of $33.9 million, including cost of product revenues of $7.3 million for the comparable period in 2008.  Included in operating expenses were non-cash charges of $4.3 million, including $2.6 million of stock-based compensation expense and $1.7 million of depreciation and amortization expenses in the fourth quarter of 2009, compared with non-cash charges of $3.8 million for the same period in 2008.

Total operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2009 were $158.9 million including cost of product revenues of $32.6 million, compared with total operating expenses of $128.1 million, including cost of product revenues of $27.2 million for the comparable period in 2008.  Included in operating expenses were non-cash charges of $16.8 million, including stock-based compensation expense of $10.2 million and $6.6 million of depreciation and amortization expenses in the year ended December 31, 2009, compared with non-cash charges of $14.2 million for the same period in 2008.

2010 Outlook and Financial Guidance

"In 2010, we became a multi-product company with the launch of our colon cancer test;  however, this year we expect continued growth in top-line revenue to be driven almost exclusively by increasing adoption of our breast cancer test," said Brad Cole, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer of Genomic Health.  "This year, we intend to continue to leverage our strong financial position with investments in the commercialization of our colon cancer test, global expansion of both franchises and in our ongoing development programs."

The company is providing the following financial guidance for the full-year ending December 31, 2010:

  • Revenue of $180 million to $190 million
  • Full year net income of up to $2 million
  • Test results delivered of 58,000 to 61,000 (includes both Oncotype DX breast and colon cancer tests)

Commercial Progress

  • More than 49,030 Oncotype DX test results were delivered in the full year of 2009, an increase of 24 percent, compared with more than 39,640 test results delivered in 2008.  In the fourth quarter of 2009, more than 13,340 test results were delivered, an increase of 26 percent, compared with more than 10,580 test results delivered in the same period in 2008.
  • More than 135,000 Oncotype DX test results were delivered as of December 31, 2009.
  • Established contracts for node-negative, estrogen-receptor positive breast cancer patients with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee, and HMSA Blue Cross Blue Shield of Hawaii, providing in-network benefit coverage for approximately 14.3 million lives.
  • The Journal of Clinical Oncology published a prospective, multi-center study showing that the Oncotype DX breast cancer test significantly influenced breast cancer treatment decisions while increasing physician confidence and patient satisfaction.  The study found that knowledge of a patient's Recurrence Score® result changed oncologists' treatment recommendations in 31.5 percent of cases and changed 27 percent of breast cancer patients' treatment decisions.  This is the sixth study to be presented or published, establishing that, on average, breast cancer treatment recommendations change 30 percent of the time when the Oncotype DX Recurrence Score is used.
  • A separate study, also published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, demonstrated that the Oncotype DX Recurrence Score, which quantifies the risk of distant recurrence for a large portion of early-stage breast cancer patients, also significantly predicts local or regional recurrence, which is when breast cancer returns to the same or nearby organ or tissue.  This is the first study to show such an association based on a sizeable population of tamoxifen and chemotherapy-treated patients from randomized clinical trials.
  • In December 2009, Genomic Health and collaborators presented five studies at the CTRC-AACR San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium reinforcing clinical utility of Oncotype DX in multiple breast cancer populations.
  • Established distribution agreements in Spain and Portugal.  
  • Initiated a breast cancer treatment decision study of Oncotype DX with clinical researchers in the United Kingdom.
  • Secured reimbursement from a leading public insurer in Greece covering Oncotype DX for breast cancer in more than 20 percent of the population.

Oncotype DX® Colon Cancer Test Progress

  • Launched the Oncotype DX colon cancer test worldwide and began accepting tumor samples in January 2010.  The 12-gene advanced diagnostic test is clinically validated to predict individual recurrence risk in stage II colon cancer patients.
  • Presented results supporting the use of the Oncotype DX colon cancer test at the American Society of Clinical Oncology's Gastrointestinal Cancers Symposium.  Highlights included:
    • Results from a study demonstrating that the Oncotype DX Recurrence Score result and the number of lymph nodes examined are independent predictors of recurrence in stage II colon cancer, both of which should be considered when assessing individual recurrence risk in this patient population.  
    • Results from an analysis of various biological similarities and differences between stage II and stage III colon cancer suggesting the Oncotype DX Recurrence Score result is stage independent, and that it may also predict recurrence risk in stage III colon cancer pending further study.

Product Pipeline

  • Completed the company's first renal gene identification study.
  • Initiated the company's first prostate cancer gene identification study.
  • Identified study cohort for second stage II colon cancer recurrence study.
