OXFORD, United Kingdom and MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Aug. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Immunotec Global PLC (Nasdaq:OXFD), a global, high-growth diagnostics company focused on developing and commercializing proprietary tests for the management of underserved immune-regulated conditions, today announced second quarter 2017 financial results.

"We delivered a strong second quarter with revenue growth that exceeded the top end of our guidance range," said Dr. Peter Wrighton-Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Oxford Immunotec. "As we continue our evolution from a single-product company to a multi-product company, we are pleased to see solid growth in our core tuberculosis (TB) business as well as a strong contribution from our accelerating tick-borne disease franchise."

By revenue type, total revenues were, in millions:

    Three Months Ended June 30,  
      2017     2016   Percent 

Product   $ 10.4   $ 9.3   12 %  
Service     15.7     9.9   59 %  
Total Revenue   $   26.1   $   19.2   36 %  

By indication, total revenues were, in millions:

    Three Months Ended June 30,  
      2017     2016   Percent 

Tuberculosis   $ 21.3   $ 19.2   12 %  
Tick-Borne Disease and Other     4.8     -   NM    
Total Revenue   $    26.1   $   19.2     36 %  

By geography, total revenues were, in millions:

    Three Months Ended June 30,  
            Percent Change  
      2017     2016   As Reported   Constant 
United States   $ 16.1   $ 9.8   65 %   65 %  
Europe & ROW     1.9     2.0   -2 %   3 %  
Asia     8.1     7.4   9 %   8 %  
Total revenue   $   26.1   $   19.2   36 %   36 %

(1) Changes in revenue include the impact of changes in foreign currency exchange rates. We use the non-GAAP financial measure "constant currency basis" in our filings to show changes in our revenue without giving effect to period-to-period currency fluctuations. We consider the use of a period over period revenue comparison on a constant currency basis to be helpful to investors, as it provides a revenue growth measure free of positive or negative volatility due to currency fluctuations.

Settlement with Statens Serum Institut

During the quarter, we reached a settlement over a dispute regarding our license agreement with Statens Serum Institut (SSI). The terms of the settlement are confidential, however, we expect this settlement to result in a 300-400 basis point improvement in future TB gross margins.

Second Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Revenue for the second quarter of 2017 was $26.1 million, representing 36% growth over second quarter 2016 revenue of $19.2 million. On a constant currency basis, revenue growth was also 36% versus the prior year period. Tuberculosis revenue for the second quarter of $21.3 million increased 12% over the prior year period. 

2017 second quarter product revenue was $10.4 million, representing a 12% increase from product revenue of $9.3 million in the second quarter of 2016. The increase was primarily driven by sales of tick-borne disease kits as well as growth in Asia. Service revenue for the second quarter of 2017 was $15.7 million, up 59% from 2016 second quarter revenue of $9.9 million. The increase in service revenue was primarily driven by tuberculosis volume increases in the United States as well as revenues from our tick-borne disease testing business.

United States revenue was $16.1 million in the second quarter of 2017, representing 65% growth over revenue of $9.8 million in the prior year period. The increase was due to growth in our core tuberculosis business as well as the additional contribution from our tick-borne disease business.

Europe & ROW revenue was $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2017, representing a 2% decrease compared to the second quarter of 2016. On a constant currency basis, Europe & ROW increased 3% versus the second quarter of 2016. The increase was primarily due to TB growth, particularly in the UK, and sales of tick-borne disease kits.

Asia revenue was $8.1 million in the second quarter of 2017, representing an increase of 9% over 2016 second quarter revenue of $7.4 million. On a constant currency basis, Asia increased 8% versus the second quarter of 2016. The increase was due to the timing of orders in China and increasing sales in South Korea.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2017 was $13.6 million, an increase of $3.1 million over gross profit of $10.5 million in the same period of 2016. Gross margin was 52.2%, a decrease of 290 basis points from the gross margin of 55.1% in the second quarter of 2016. The second quarter gross margin performance reflects an underlying improvement in TB margins offset by the addition of our tick-borne disease businesses, which carry lower gross margins.

Operating expenses were $31.4 million in the second quarter of 2017, an increase of $13.5 million compared to $17.9 million in the same period last year. The increase in operating expenses was largely due to the inclusion of a one-time charge related to the SSI settlement as well as expenses related to our BLA submissions and ongoing patent litigation.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2017 was $16.8 million, or $0.74 per share, compared to $6.4 million, or $0.29 per share, in the second quarter of 2016. Net loss per share was based on 22,805,379 and 22,351,645 weighted average ordinary shares outstanding for the second quarters of 2017 and 2016, respectively. 

EBITDA for the second quarter was $(17.4) million compared to $(5.8) million in the second quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA was $(6.3) million for the second quarter compared to $(5.3) million in the same period in 2016. Both EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures.

Business Outlook

We expect to report revenue of between $29.5 and $30.5 million for the third quarter of 2017.

We now expect to report full year 2017 revenue of between $103 and $106 million, representing 20% - 23% year-over-year growth. We expect revenue to increase approximately 21% to 24% for the year using constant exchange rates. This compares to prior revenue guidance of between $102 and $105 million.

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures that we calculate as net loss, adjusted for the impact of earnings or charges resulting from matters that we consider not to be indicative of our ongoing operations. We believe that these measures provide useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating our operating results in the same manner as our management and Board of Directors. Our presentation of these measures is not made in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and our computation of these measures may vary from others in the industry. Our use of these measures has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under U.S. GAAP.

The above table presents a reconciliation of net loss, the most comparable U.S. GAAP measure, to EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA for each of the periods indicated.

ProLynx announces SBIR grant award to develop novel technology for dual receptor agonists25.9.2017 15:00Pressemelding

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today, ProLynx announced it was awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the NIH to expand its technology platform to control delivery of two or more drugs in a single agent. In the ProLynx platform, a drug is tethered to hydrogel microspheres by a self-cleaving linker that is pre-programmed to release the drug at a pre-determined rate. After subcutaneous injection, the drug is slowly released from the microsphere carrier into the systemic circulation. Since the half-life of the released drug is solely dictated by the cleavage rate of the linker used, if two different drugs are attached to the same carrier by the same linker, the in vivo half-lives of the two drugs released will be the same. The relative potencies of each drug are controlled by the relative amounts of each drug attached to the carrier. Daniel Santi, cofounder, stated, "We will first develop this technology with a combination of our long
