Myriad Genetics Reports Fiscal First-Quarter 2020 Financial Results

November 4, 2019

-- Total First-Quarter Revenues of $186.3 Million -- Excluding Out-of-Period Adjustments Revenue Would Have Been $197.5 Million -- First-Quarter Diluted EPS of ($0.28) and Adjusted EPS of $0.08

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Myriad Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MYGN, “Myriad” or the “Company”), a global leader in molecular diagnostics and precision medicine, today announced financial results for its fiscal first-quarter 2020, provided an update on recent business highlights and provided revised fiscal year and second-quarter 2020 financial guidance.

“We had a challenging start to fiscal year 2020 as hereditary cancer revenue accrual from small payers was impacted by the deletion of the historical hereditary cancer CPT codes. We had assumed this administrative change would have a minor impact to cash collections, but unfortunately, that has not proven to be the case. While the hereditary cancer business has returned to strong double-digit volume growth, the revenue accrual impact from these changes have led us to lower our financial outlook for the year,” said Mark C. Capone, president and CEO, Myriad Genetics. “Despite this setback, we expect earnings to be significantly higher in the second half of the fiscal year and believe that a number of important upsides will materialize during the fiscal year generating momentum as we transition into fiscal year 2021.”

Financial HighlightsThe following table summarizes the financial results for the fiscal first-quarter of 2020:

Recent Business Highlights

• Hereditary Cancer

o In the fiscal first-quarter, Myriad made approximately an $11 million reserve adjustment for hereditary cancer revenue due to lower cash collections from small payers as a result of the deletion of the current procedural terminology (CPT®) codes 81211 and 81213. As a result, the company has revised its revenue accrual rate, and is forecasting lower hereditary cancer rates for fiscal year 2020. Myriad will provide a detailed summary of the changes on its fiscal first-quarter 2020 earnings call. o Hereditary cancer volumes grew at a double-digit growth rate on a year-over-year basis for both the company’s oncology and women’s health business units.

• GeneSight®

o Announced coverage decision from UnitedHealthcare, the largest commercial payer in the United States, covering GeneSight for patients that have a diagnosis of major depressive disorder or anxiety and have failed at least one prior medication. o Signed master service agreement with a large pharmacy benefit manager in the United States to offer GeneSight to its commercial payer and self-funded employer customers. A Fortune 50 company has already opted into the master service agreement. o Published the precision medicine analysis of the GUIDED study in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry. The study evaluated 787 patients at baseline who were on medications with known gene drug interactions. The analysis showed that patients who had their treatment guided by GeneSight saw a 70 percent improvement in remission, 42 percent improvement in response, and a 23 percent improvement in symptoms, all of which were statistically significant.

• Prenatal

o Received acceptance for publication for new data in Prenatal Diagnosis demonstrating that Prequel® is the only non-invasive prenatal screening (NIPS) test that outperforms traditional measures of aneuploidy detection across all classes of obesity. Other NIPS testing methodologies can have failure rates up to 24 percent in obese patients leading the American College of Gynecology to recommend against using NIPS in patients with significant obesity.

• Prolaris®

o Published a clinical outcomes study in Personalized Medicine that demonstrated the Prolaris®test can identify men with low-risk prostate cancer who can safely select active surveillance (AS) and defer the need for costly treatments such as radiation therapy or surgery. In the study of 664 men with low risk prostate cancer, 82.4 percent selected AS for their initial treatment and only 0.4 percent experienced disease progression. Additionally, the AS decision was durable with 91.2 percent of men remaining on AS at year one and 65.2 percent at year four.

• Companion Diagnostics

o Filed a supplementary Premarket Approval Application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to authorize BRACAnalysis® CDx as a companion diagnostic test for olaparib in metastatic, castrate-resistant, prostate cancer patients with germline BRCAmutations. o Received the first FDA approval for myChoice® CDx as a companion diagnostic to identify women with ovarian cancer who are candidates for Zejula® monotherapy in the late-line setting. o Submitted our myChoice CDx test for approval by Japan’s Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) in ovarian cancer.

Statement regarding use of non-GAAP financial measuresIn this press release, the Company’s financial results and financial guidance are provided in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) and using certain non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that presentation of operating results using non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplemental information to investors and facilitates the analysis of the Company’s core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods. Management also uses non-GAAP financial measures to establish budgets and to manage the Company’s business. A reconciliation of the GAAP financial results to non-GAAP financial results is included in the attached schedules.

Following is a description of the adjustments made to GAAP financial measures:

-- Acquisition – amortization of intangible assets: Represents recurring amortization charges resulting from the acquisition of intangible assets, including developed technology and database rights. -- Acquisition – integration related costs: Costs related to closing and integration of acquired companies -- Equity compensation – non-cash equity based compensation provided to Myriad employees -- Deferred Tax impact of non-GAAP adjustments: Changes in effective tax rate based upon ASU 2016-09 and the deferred tax impact of non-deductible acquisition costs -- Potential future consideration related to acquisitions: Non-cash expenses related to valuation adjustments of earn-out and milestone payments tied to recent acquisitions -- Elevate Initiatives: Expenses tied to Elevate 2020 program

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. Non-GAAP financial results are reported in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.
