Sequenom Inc. Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Year Ended December 31, 2014

Sequenom Inc. reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported total revenues of $36.8 million, an increase of 13% compared to revenues of $32.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2013. This increase in total revenues is primarily due to a higher volume of MaterniT21 PLUS tests performed. Operating income was $20.0 million as compared to a loss of $19.2 million, for the same period in 2013. Net earnings were $18.3 million or $0.14 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $18.9 million, or $0.16 per share, for the same period in 2013. This improvement in net earnings is due to the reduced loss from operations and the gain related to the Illumina transaction. Earnings from continuing operations before income taxes was $17,982,000 compared to loss from continuing operations before income taxes of $21,272,000 a year ago. Income from operations was $16,747,000 compared to loss from continuing operation of $19,722,000 a year ago. For the year, the company’s total revenues were $151.6 million, compared to $119.6 million for the prior year 2013, a 27% increase. Revenues are recorded primarily on a cash basis, with 44% of revenue in the fourth quarter of 2014 accounted for on the accrual basis of accounting. Net earnings were $1.0 million, or $0.01 per share, compared to a net loss of $107.4 million for 2013, or $0.93 per share. Loss from continuing operations before income taxes was $22,040,000 compared to loss from continuing operations before income taxes of $110,920,000 a year ago. Loss from operations was $14,364,000 compared to $109,567,000 a year ago. Net cash used in operating activities was $28,086,000 compared to $88,095,000 a year ago. This reduction in cash used in operating activities is primarily due to the increase in revenue and decrease in operating expenses. Purchases of property, equipment and leasehold improvements were $2,236,000 compared to $12,071,000 a year ago. Payment for the purchase of intangible assets was $9,250,000. Net loss from continuing operations improved by 87% to $14.4 million, or $0.12 per share as compared to $109.6 million, or $0.95 per share for 2013. The improvement in the loss from continuing operations from prior year is due to improved gross margins, reduced operating expenses and a gain on the pooled patents agreement with Illumina.
