First Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Revenue was $105.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, a 47% increase from $71.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. This increase was primarily the result of increased consumables revenue driven by growth in the instrument installed base.

Gross margin was 84% for the first quarter of 2021, as compared to 79% for the corresponding prior year period. The increase in gross margin was driven primarily by lower accrued royalties related to ongoing litigation.

Operating expenses were $99.0 million for the first quarter of 2021, a 29% increase from $76.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Drivers of the increase in operating expenses this quarter include increased personnel expenses, including stock-based compensation, and increased expenses related to facilities and technology to support operational expansion.

Operating loss was $10.2 million for the first quarter of 2021, as compared to $19.9 million for the corresponding prior year period. This includes $16.2 million of stock-based compensation for the first quarter of 2021, as compared to $6.7 million for the first quarter of 2020.

Net loss was $11.6 million for the first quarter of 2021, as compared to a net loss of $21.1 million for the corresponding prior year period.

Cash and cash equivalents were $617.2 million as of March 31, 2021.
