On February 5, 2013, Pacific Biosciences of California, Inc. (the Company) released its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2012. The Companys Consolidated Balance Sheets (unaudited), Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Loss (unaudited) and Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows (unaudited) are included hereto as Exhibits 99.1, 99.2 and 99.3, respectively and are incorporated herein by reference.
Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2012 totaled $26.0 million compared to $33.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. The Company expects total revenue in 2013 to be higher than total revenue in 2012; however, the Company expects its first quarter of 2013 revenue to decrease sequentially from the fourth quarter of 2012.
The Companys instrument revenue backlog was $2.9 million as of December 31, 2012 and represents orders for five PacBio RS instruments compared to backlog of $11.0 million and 16 systems as of December 31, 2011.
Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2012 totaled $0.9 million, resulting in a gross margin of 3.6%, compared to a $13.0 million gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2011 and a gross margin of 38.5%. The gross margin for 2011 reflects the positive margin impact of instrument components expensed prior to the Companys commercial launch during the second quarter of 2011. The Company expects its overall gross margin will remain in the single digits in 2013.
Operating expenses totaled $95.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $122.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. Operating expenses in 2013 are expected to be $22 million or less per quarter.
Cash and investments at December 31, 2012 totaled $100.6 million compared to $177.4 million at December 31, 2011 reflecting cash usage of $76.8 million. Cash usage in 2013, excluding the impact of any debt or equity financing, is expected to decrease as compared to 2012.
This current report on Form 8-K contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 including, but not limited to, statements regarding future revenue, future revenue implied by existing backlog, gross margins, operating expenses and cash usage. These statements involve significant risks and uncertainties, including those discussed in the Companys most recently filed Form 10-Q, and in other reports filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Because these statements reflect current expectations concerning future events, actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of many factors. The Company is providing this information as of February 5, 2013. The Company undertakes no duty to update any forward-looking statements to reflect the occurrence of events or circumstances after the date of such statements or of anticipated or unanticipated events that alter any assumptions underlying such statements.
The information set forth in this Item 2.02, as well as Exhibit 99.1, 99.2 and 99.3 referenced therein, shall be deemed filed for purposes of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the Exchange Act), and shall be incorporated by reference into the Companys filings under the Securities Act.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
