Illumina Reports Financial Results for First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2020

SAN DIEGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Illumina, Inc. (NASDAQ: ILMN) today announced its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2020.

First quarter 2020 results:

  • Revenue of $859 million, a 2% increase compared to $846 million in the first quarter of 2019
  • GAAP net income attributable to Illumina stockholders for the quarter of $173 million, or $1.17 per diluted share, compared to $233 million, or $1.57 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019
  • Non-GAAP net income attributable to Illumina stockholders for the quarter of $243 million, or $1.64 per diluted share, compared to $237 million, or $1.60 per diluted share, for the first quarter of 2019. Non-GAAP net income excludes expenses related to the Reverse Termination Fee and Continuation Advances paid to Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (PacBio) in Q1 2020 (see the “Reconciliation Between GAAP and Non-GAAP Net Income Attributable to Illumina Stockholders” table for a reconciliation of these GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures)
  • Cash flow from operations of $281 million compared to $198 million in the first quarter of 2019
  • Free cash flow (cash flow from operations less capital expenditures) of $241 million for the quarter compared to $142 million in the first quarter of 2019

Gross margin in the first quarter of 2020 was 72.1% compared to 69.1% in the prior year period. Excluding amortization of acquired intangible assets and restructuring charges, non-GAAP gross margin was 73.0% for the first quarter of 2020 compared to 70.2% in the prior year period.

Research and development (R&D) expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were $156 million compared to $169 million in the prior year period. Excluding payroll credits related to COVID-19, non-GAAP R&D expenses as a percentage of revenue were 18.3% compared to 20.0% in the prior year period.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were $274 million compared to $211 million in the prior year period. Excluding expenses related to the terminated acquisition with PacBio, non-GAAP SG&A expenses as a percentage of revenue were 21.1% compared to 23.0% in the prior year period.

Depreciation and amortization expenses were $44 million and capital expenditures for free cash flow purposes were $40 million during the first quarter of 2020. At the close of the quarter, the company held $3.3 billion in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, compared to $3.4 billion as of December 29, 2019.

“We are doing everything we can to support our employees, our customers, and communities during this pandemic,” said Francis deSouza, President and CEO. “While the near-term headwind is strong, the opportunity for sequencing and genomic insights is clearer than ever. We believe that the global community will emerge from this experience more determined and more united to prepare for the next pandemic, and that genomics will be integral to that effort.”

Updates since our last earnings release:

  • Announced the Illumina SARS-CoV-2 Data Toolkit, a new suite of data analysis tools and workflow functionality for researchers working with the virus using next-generation sequencing (NGS)
  • Donated sequencing systems and related consumables to support the expansion of SARS-CoV-2 sequencing capabilities and capacity in up to ten African countries
  • Partnered with IDbyDNA to co-market IDbyDNA’s Explify® Platform for use with Illumina’s NGS systems and library preparation to provide a complete, streamlined workflow solution for infectious disease applications
  • Authorized a share repurchase program to repurchase $750 million of outstanding common stock and repurchased approximately $187 million of common stock in the first quarter
  • Continued to strengthen the Board of Directors with the addition of Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former US FDA commissioner

Financial outlook and guidance

As previously announced on April 14, 2020, Illumina has withdrawn its fiscal 2020 full year revenue and earnings per share guidance due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The conference call will begin at 2:00 pm Pacific Time (5:00 pm Eastern Time) on Thursday, April 30, 2020. Interested parties may access the live teleconference through the Investor Info section of Illumina’s website under the “Company” tab at www.illumina.com.

Statement regarding use of non-GAAP financial measures

The company reports non-GAAP results for diluted net income per share, net income, gross margins, operating expenses, operating margins, other income, and free cash flow in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP. The company’s financial measures under GAAP include substantial charges such as amortization of acquired intangible assets, non-cash interest expense associated with the company’s convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash, and others that are listed in the itemized reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release. Management has excluded the effects of these items in non-GAAP measures to assist investors in analyzing and assessing past and future operating performance. Additionally, non-GAAP net income attributable to Illumina stockholders and diluted earnings per share attributable to Illumina stockholders are key components of the financial metrics utilized by the company’s board of directors to measure, in part, management’s performance and determine significant elements of management’s compensation.

The company encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand its business. Reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP results are presented in the tables of this release.

Use of forward-looking statements

This release may contain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Among the important factors to which our business is subject that could cause actual results to differ materially from those in any forward-looking statements are: (i) the impact to our business and operating results of the COVID-19 pandemic; (ii) changes in the rate of growth in the markets we serve; (iii) the volume, timing and mix of customer orders among our products and services; (iv) our ability to adjust our operating expenses to align with our revenue expectations; (v) our ability to manufacture robust instrumentation and consumables; (vi) the success of products and services competitive with our own; (vii) challenges inherent in developing, manufacturing, and launching new products and services, including expanding or modifying manufacturing operations and reliance on third-party suppliers for critical components; (viii) the impact of recently launched or pre-announced products and services on existing products and services; (ix) our ability to further develop and commercialize our instruments and consumables, to deploy new products, services, and applications, and to expand the markets for our technology platforms; (x) our ability to obtain regulatory clearance for our products from government agencies; (xi) our ability to successfully partner with other companies and organizations to develop new products, expand markets, and grow our business; (xii) our ability to successfully identify and integrate acquired technologies, products, or businesses; and (xiii) the application of generally accepted accounting principles, which are highly complex and involve many subjective assumptions, estimates, and judgments, together with other factors detailed in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our most recent filings on Forms 10-K and 10-Q, or in information disclosed in public conference calls, the date and time of which are released beforehand. We undertake no obligation, and do not intend, to update these forward-looking statements, to review or confirm analysts’ expectations, or to provide interim reports or updates on the progress of the current quarter.

(a) Free cash flow, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities reduced by purchases of property and equipment. Free cash flow is useful to management as it is one of the metrics used to evaluate our performance and to compare us with other companies in our industry. However, our calculation of free cash flow may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies.
