SAN DIEGO, January 5, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Bionano Genomics, Inc. (Nasdaq: BNGO) today reported certain unaudited preliminary financial and commercial highlights for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2022. The Company’s full results for the fourth quarter and the fiscal year ended December 31, 2022 are not yet available.
“We ended an outstanding year with a lot of momentum across all facets of our business and have achieved or exceeded all of the stated 2022 ELEVATE! milestones we set out at the beginning of 2022,” commented Erik Holmlin, PhD, president and chief executive officer of Bionano. “Bionano issued revenue guidance for the first time in 2022, and we not only came in at the high end of our guidance each quarter, but we exceeded our total 2022 guidance range. We were also pleased to see an incredible uptick in overall awareness and adoption of optical genome mapping (OGM) across the globe.”
Q4 2022 Highlights

Revenues for the fourth quarter 2022 are expected to be in the range of $8.1 million to $8.4 million, an estimated increase of 12% to 16% compared to $7.2 million in the third quarter of 2022 and an estimated increase of 27% to 33% compared to the fourth quarter of 2021. Full year 2022 revenue is expected to be in the range of $27.7 million and $28.0 million, an estimated increase of between 54% and 56% compared to 2021.

Installed base of Saphyr® systems totaled 240 at year-end, which was an increase of 23 systems over third quarter 2022 and represented a 46% increase over the 164 installed systems reported at the end of 2021.

Sold 4,781 flowcells, an increase of 49% over the fourth quarter of 2021.

Completed acquisition of Purigen Biosystems, which is expected to accelerate the adoption of OGM due to anticipated improvements in Bionano’s ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) DNA sample preparation workflow.

Achieved All Full-Year 2022 ELEVATE! Milestones

Launched OGM laboratory developed tests (LDTs) for hematological malignancy and genetic disorder applications through Bionano Laboratories

Pre-commercial version of next generation OGM system running in the field with a planned commercial launch in first half of 2023

Developed and released enhanced DLS G2 labeling and SP Next DNA isolation kits which enable sample to results in as little as 3 days for cancer samples

In partnership with Hamilton, released an automated version of Bionano’s DNA isolation chemistry

NxClinical™ software version 7.0, which is the version of NxClinical software enabled for OGM data analysis, is being used in the field and full commercial release for applications in hematological malignancies is planned for the first half of 2023

Met all previously stated 2022 milestones for prenatal, postnatal and hematological clinical trials, including: study enrollment targets; completion of postnatal study, which has been submitted for publication as a pre-print; interim publication of the prenatal study, which was published in December 2022 as a pre-print; and initiation of the solid tumor trial.
“We’ve been working hard to achieve the revenue growth we expect to report for the fourth quarter and full year 2022 compared to the same periods in 2021,” added Chris Stewart, chief financial officer of Bionano. “We believe this momentum has helped to lay the groundwork for a very exciting year in 2023.”
Bionano has not completed preparation of its financial statements for the fourth quarter or full year of 2022. The revenue ranges presented in this press release for the fourth quarter of 2022 and for the year ended December 31, 2022 are preliminary and unaudited, based on management’s initial review of the information presented, and are thus inherently uncertain and subject to change as Bionano completes its end-of-period reporting process and related activities for the fourth quarter of and full year 2022. Bionano is in the process of completing its customary year-end close and review procedures as of and for the year ended December 31, 2022, and there can be no assurance that final results for this period will not differ from these estimates. During the course of the preparation of Bionano's consolidated financial statements and related notes as of and for the year ended December 31, 2022, Bionano’s independent registered public accountants may identify items that could cause final reported results to be materially different from the preliminary financial estimates presented herein. Additional information and disclosures would be required for a more complete understanding of Bionano’s financial position and results of operations as of and for the fourth quarter and year-ended December 31, 2022. Accordingly, undue reliance should not be placed on this preliminary information.
