Bionano Genomics Reports Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2022 Results and Provides Revenue Outlook for 2023
Q4 revenue was $8.2 million, which represents a 30% increase over Q4 2021
2022 revenue was $27.8 million, which represents a 55% increase over year end 2021
Reached installed base of 240 Saphyr® systems as of YE 2022, which represents a 46% increase over YE 2021
Conference call today, March 9th, 2023 at 4:30 PM ET
SAN DIEGO, March 9, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Bionano Genomics, Inc. (Nasdaq: BNGO) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2022 and revenue outlook for 2023.
“We started the year against a challenging external backdrop, and over the course of the year achieved or exceeded all of the stated 2022 ELEVATE! milestones we outlined 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 exceeded our total 2022 guidance range. We were also pleased to see an uptick in overall awareness and adoption of optical genome mapping (OGM) across the globe.”
Recent Highlights
Published peer-reviewed publication for prenatal validation study, which evaluated 114 samples for prenatal genetic disease using OGM; results showed OGM to have 100% concordance with traditional cytogenetic methods and 100% interrun, intrarun, and interinstrument technical and analytical reproducibility.
Published peer-reviewed publication for postnatal validation study, which compared OGM to standard of care (SOC) methods across 7 clinical sites, using 404 constitutional postnatal samples; results showed that 99.5% of samples were fully concordant with SOC methods, with 100% inter- and intrasite repeatability.
Q4 2022 and YE 2022 Highlights
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 in Q4 2022, which was an increase of 49% percent over fourth quarter 2021; 15,375 flowcells were sold in 2022, which represented a 23% increase over the total number of flowcells sold in 2021.
Acquired Purigen Biosystems, which we expect to accelerate the adoption of OGM due to anticipated improvements in Bionano’s ultra-high molecular weight (UHMW) DNA sample preparation workflow.
Key publications validated OGM’s utility for research applications including cancer and genetic disease:
Researchers from The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center published the first study to evaluate the utility of OGM for myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) prognostication. The publication reported that when OGM was used instead of karyotyping, 17 to 21% of study subjects had different prognostic risk scores depending on the scoring system used, and in 13% of study subjects additional pathogenic variants were revealed.

In a study published in Blood Cancer Journal, researchers found that in 33% of MDS samples and 54% of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) samples, more clinically relevant variants were detected using OGM than were found by traditional cytogenetic methods and these variants were reported to be highly relevant to the understanding of pathogenesis of these disorders.
Researchers from eight research institutes analyzed OGM’s utility for detection of cytogenetic abnormalities in AML samples, finding that OGM identified pathogenic variants in 12% of cases that altered European LeukemiaNet risk-level or identified eligibility for clinical trials.
The first published validation study to evaluate the performance of OGM versus traditional cytogenetic techniques for the analysis of hematological neoplasms showed that OGM’s technical performance resulted in a 100% first-pass rate, with concordance to traditional methods showing a sensitivity of 98.7%, a specificity of 100%, and an accuracy of 99.2%.
A study demonstrated the utility of OGM as part of a workflow to evaluate the quality of hypoimmunogenic induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) which could be used in regenerative medicine. This research provides scientific and practical support for OGM’s ability to detect cryptic and balanced SVs in CRISPR-edited cells, some of which were not detected by karyotyping, and which may impact the genomic integrity of iPSCs.
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 Bionano Prep SP-G2 (SP-G2) labeling kit and Bionano Prep Direct Label and Stain-G2 (DLS-G2) DNA isolation kit 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.
Q4 2022 and Full Year 2022 Financial Highlights
Total revenue for the fourth quarter of 2022 was $8.2 million, an increase of 14% compared to $7.2 million in the third quarter of 2022 and an increase of 30% compared to the fourth quarter of 2021. Full year 2022 revenue was $27.8 million, an increase of 55% compared to 2021.
1 Non-GAAP operating expense is a non-GAAP financial measure. For a description of this non-GAAP financial measure, please refer to “Non-GAAP Financial Measures”, and for a reconciliation of non-GAAP operating expense to operating expense reported in accordance with GAAP, please refer to the financial tables accompanying this release.

Gross margin for the fourth quarter of 2022 was 22%, compared to 4% from the fourth quarter of 2021. The increase was primarily due to major improvements in chip yield year-over-year. Full year 2022 total gross margin was 21%, slightly down from 22% in 2021.
Fourth quarter 2022 GAAP operating expense was $39.3 million, compared to $29.0 million in the prior year. Fourth quarter 2022 non-GAAP operating expense was $30.6 million, compared to $21.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. Fourth quarter 2022 non-GAAP operating expenses exclude $5.5 million in stock-based compensation, $1.5 million in amortization of intangibles, and $1.7 million in acquisition related expenses. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to increased headcount-related spending, increased R&D expenses, and expenses associated with our acquisition of Purigen Biosystems. Full year 2022 GAAP operating expense was $137.6 million and non-GAAP operating expense was $107.7 million. Full year 2022 non-GAAP operating expense excludes $22.4 million in stock-based compensation, $5.8 million in amortization of intangibles, and $1.8 million in acquisition-related transaction costs associated with our acquisition of Purigen Biosystems.1
Cash, cash equivalents, and available-for-sale securities were $113.2 million as of December 31, 2022 compared to cash, cash equivalents and available-for-sale securities of $250.6 million as of December 31, 2021.

2023 Financial Guidance
Bionano expects full year 2023 revenue to be in the range of $35 million to $38 million, which would represent a range of 26% to 37% growth over full year 2022 revenue. We anticipate the installed base of OGM systems will total 325 by the end of 2023.
Chris Stewart, chief financial officer at Bionano added, “Q4 2022 was an outstanding quarter, capping off a tremendous year where we achieved impressive year-over-year revenue growth of 30%. We leveraged our strong balance sheet to acquire Purigen Biosystems and their industry leading isotachophoresis (ITP) solution for DNA isolation and analysis on the Ionic® Purification System in Q4 2022. We begin 2023 well-positioned, and look forward to executing on our goal to drive value for our stakeholders.”

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 operating expense in this press release, which is a non-GAAP financial measure. 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 acquisition-related expenses.
Bionano believes that non-GAAP operating expense is 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 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 this measure allows for greater transparency with respect to key financial metrics it uses in assessing its own operating performance and making operating decisions.
This non-GAAP financial measure is 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; has no standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP; and is 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 measure as used by Bionano in this press release and the accompanying reconciliation table has 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 operating expense to operating expense reported in accordance with GAAP, please refer to the financial tables accompanying this release.
