Updates since our last earnings release

  • Signed definitive agreement to acquire Omniome, Inc. (Omniome), a San Diego-based company developing a highly differentiated, proprietary short-read sequencing platform capable of delivering high accuracy.
  • Announced intent to expand collaboration with Invitae Corporation (Invitae) to include Omniome’s technology enabled by Sequencing by Binding (SBB) chemistry upon close of our proposed acquisition.
  • Entered into a definitive agreement to raise $300 million in a private placement transaction from a premier syndicate of life sciences investors upon closing the Omniome acquisition.
  • Acquired Circulomics Inc (Circulomics), a leader in high molecular weight DNA extraction to enable path toward an end-to-end automated workflow.
  • Collaborated with Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine on a study aiming to identify potential disease-causing genetic variants and increase the solve rates of rare diseases using HiFi Sequencing.
  • Strengthened our leadership team with the addition of Dr. Catherine Ball as Senior Vice President of Research, Neil Ward as Vice President and General Manager for Europe, Middle East, and Africa, Michele Farmer as Chief Accounting Officer, and Kathy Lynch as Head of Global Government Affairs and Corporate Communications.

“We delivered another record quarter in Q2, and since the second quarter of last year, we’ve nearly doubled our Sequel II installed base,” said Christian Henry, President and Chief Executive Officer. “We’re making great progress in scaling our business with our agreement to acquire Omniome and the acquisition of Circulomics. These acquisitions will help us achieve our mission to enable the promise of genomics to better human health.”

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic

Financial results for the second quarter of 2020 were negatively impacted as multiple customers postponed system deliveries, and the financial results for much of 2020 were further impacted as several customers shut down or limited operations for various periods to help curb the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Instrument utilization largely returned to normal by the fourth quarter of 2020, and we subsequently have not seen significant issues with deliveries or operations at customer sites. This resulted in higher product revenues of $26.5 million for the second quarter of 2021 compared to $13.8 million for the same period of 2020. Uncertainties associated with the pandemic, including recent resurgences in infection rates, may cause further impacts to our operations and financial results.
