Conference call today, August 9th, 2023, at 4:30 PM ET
SAN DIEGO, August 9, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bionano Genomics, Inc. (Nasdaq: BNGO) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023.
Q2 2023 Highlights
Installed base of Saphyr® systems totaled 281 at the end of the second quarter 2023, which was an increase of 22 systems over the first quarter of 2023 and represents a 43% increase over the 196 installed systems reported at the end of the second quarter of 2022.
7,062 nanochannel array flowcells sold during the second quarter, which represents a 35% increase over the 5,226 flowcells sold during the first quarter of 2023 and represents an increase of 108% over the 3,394 flowcells sold during the second quarter of 2022.
Announced the commercial release of new kits for the Ionic® Purification System featuring new chemistry for nucleic acid extraction from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) and tumor tissue. These products offer potential improvements in quality and yield of nucleic acid extracted from complex biological samples including those with low cell counts or otherwise challenging sample types, such as FFPE tumor samples.
Announced the Stratys™ system for high throughput optical genome mapping (OGM), which will enable a four-fold increase in raw data generation rate compared to the Saphyr® instrument. The Stratys instrument is compatible with the Company’s latest G2 chemistry and is designed for maximum lab flexibility by enabling up to 12 single access chips, accessible as they complete runs, without the need to batch multiple samples on a consumable.
Announced VIA™ software, which replaces NxClinical™ software with a simple and integrated workflow for visualization, interpretation and reporting for hematologic malignancies across OGM, microarray and next-generation sequencing (NGS) data types for enhanced contextualization across multiple variant types and accelerated time to results at a reduced cost. A workflow focused on genetic disease is expected later in 2023.
Announced the 2023 winners of the Bionano Innovator Research Grant program, which was established to fuel novel research using the Company’s OGM products to detect relevant structural variants (SVs). There were over 190 grant applications submitted from 46 countries and 15 winners were selected, including researchers from grand prize winner Stanford University, and runner up prize winners The Hospital for Sick Children and Duke University. All three winners will receive use of a Saphyr system and OGM reagents to conduct their project.
Bionano participated at key cytogenetic conferences, including the European Hematology Association (EHA) 2023 Congress, the European Human Genetics (ESHG) 2023 Conference, the European Association for Cancer Research (EACR) 2023 Congress and the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) Annual Meeting 2023. OGM was featured in 37 scientific posters

and presentations covering a wide range of research applications across key areas including constitutional genetic disorders, rare undiagnosed genetic disease (RUGD), solid tumor analysis, hematological malignancies, stem cell research and regenerative medicine.
Key studies that were published during Q2 outline support for OGM’s utility for cancer and genetic disease research:
Three peer-reviewed publications collectively illustrate the building support in Europe for OGM as a powerful alternative to traditional methods of cytogenetic analysis for hematological malignancies. Taken together, the publications, a review paper and two independent studies, illustrate that OGM is not only comparable to traditional methods of cytogenetic analysis for hematological malignancies but is potentially more sensitive in the detection of relevant aberrations that are not detected by traditional methods but that could have an impact on clinical research, potentially leading to improved patient management, including therapy selection and overall risk assessment.
A peer-reviewed study from Augusta University assessed the utility of a combined OGM and 523-gene next-generation sequencing (NGS) panel workflow for the standard evaluation of samples from 30 myeloid cancer subjects and compared it to the common approach of KT and FISH combined with a 54-gene NGS panel. The authors found that the combined workflow of OGM plus the 523-gene NGS panel performed significantly better than KT and FISH, identifying previously undetected pathogenic SVs and resulting in revisions to risk classifications and disease stratifications.
Researchers at Radboud University Medical Center published a study showing the use of OGM to identify gene disruptive SVs that might contribute to inherited retinal diseases (IRDs). The authors sought to determine whether OGM could improve SV detection in genetically unexplained IRD cases. Their results identified several pathogenic SVs that had been overlooked in their initial genome analyses by NGS, illustrating the potential impact of combining NGS and OGM for more comprehensive variant analysis.
“We are pleased with our Q2 2023 results, which include record revenues and consumable sales for any quarter in Bionano’s history,” commented Erik Holmlin, PhD, president and chief executive officer of Bionano. “We continue to see growing momentum in our business, and we believe our recent and upcoming major product releases should help us further penetrate new markets and achieve our business goals.”

Q2 2023 Financial Highlights
Total revenue for the second quarter of 2023 was $8.7 million, an increase of 30% compared to the second quarter of 2022.
GAAP gross margin for the second quarter of 2023 was 27%, compared to 22% from the second quarter of 2022. Second quarter 2023 non-GAAP1 gross margin was 29%, compared to 22% from the second quarter of 2022. Second quarter 2023 non-GAAP gross margin excludes $0.2 million in stock-based compensation.
Second quarter 2023 GAAP operating expense was $41.5 million, compared to $33.6 million in the second quarter of 2022. Second quarter 2023 non-GAAP operating expense was $34.6 million, compared to $26.3 million in the second quarter of 2022. Second quarter 2023 non-GAAP operating expenses exclude $3.7 million in stock-based compensation, $1.8 million in amortization of intangibles, and a $1.4 million increase in the estimated fair value of the contingent consideration liabilities primarily related to the acquisition of Purigen Biosystems.
Cash, cash equivalents, and available-for-sale securities were $77.1 million as of June 30, 2023, compared to cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities of $95.8 million as of March 31, 2023.
Chris Stewart, chief financial officer at Bionano added, “I am very pleased with the progress we demonstrated in Q2 2023. We saw growth in flow cell consumption, driven by both new installations and higher consumable purchases from existing customers. We implemented the previously announced cost savings actions, which we expect to see in second half operating expenses. In addition, we further advanced our long-term growth strategy and delivered quantifiable progress both sequentially as well as year over year.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement Bionano’s financial results reported in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), the Company has provided non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP operating expense in this press release, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP operating expense excludes from GAAP reported operating expense the following components as detailed in the reconciliation table accompanying this press release: stock-based compensation, amortization of intangibles and change in fair value of contingent consideration. Non-GAAP gross margin excludes from GAAP reported gross margin stock-based compensation as detailed in the reconciliation table accompanying this press release.
Bionano believes that non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP operating expense are useful to investors and analysts as a supplement to its financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP for analyzing operating performance and identifying operating trends in its business. Bionano uses non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP operating expense internally to facilitate period-to-period comparisons and analysis of its operating performance in order to understand, manage and evaluate its business and to make operating decisions. Accordingly, Bionano believes these measures allow for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics it uses in assessing its own operating performance and making operating decisions.
These non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for comparable GAAP measures; should be read in conjunction with the Company’s consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with GAAP; have no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP; and are not prepared under any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. In addition, from time to time in the future, there may be other items that the Company may exclude for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures; and the Company may in the future cease to exclude items that it has historically excluded for purposes of its non-GAAP financial measures. Likewise, the Company may determine to modify the nature of its adjustments to arrive at its non-GAAP financial measures. Because of the non-standardized definitions of non-GAAP financial measures, the non-GAAP financial measures as used by Bionano in this press release and the accompanying reconciliation table have limits in its usefulness to investors and may be calculated differently from, and therefore may not be directly comparable to, similarly titled measures used by other companies.
For a reconciliation of non-GAAP gross margin and non-GAAP operating expense to gross margin and operating expense reported in accordance with GAAP, please refer to the financial tables accompanying this release.
