OXFORD, United Kingdom and MARLBOROUGH, Mass., July 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Oxford Immunotec Global PLC (Nasdaq: OXFD), a global, high-growth diagnostics company, today announced second quarter 2018 financial results.

(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.

Second Quarter 2018 Financial Results

Revenue for the second quarter of 2018 was $29.3 million, representing a 12% increase from second quarter 2017 revenue of $26.1 million. On a constant currency basis, revenue growth was 11% versus the prior year period. Tuberculosis revenue for the second quarter of $25.0 million increased 17% over the prior year period. 

2018 second quarter product revenue was $11.7 million, representing a 12% increase from product revenue of $10.4 million in the second quarter of 2017. The increase was attributable to strong growth in both Asia and Europe & ROW. Service revenue for the second quarter of 2018 was $17.6 million, up 12% from 2017 second quarter service revenue of $15.7 million. The increase in service revenue was primarily driven by increased tuberculosis revenues in the United States and United Kingdom.

United States revenue was $17.7 million in the second quarter of 2018, representing a 10% increase from revenue of $16.1 million in the prior year period. The increase was due to growth in our core tuberculosis business, which was partially offset by an expected decline in blood donor screening revenue.

Europe & ROW revenue was $2.2 million in the second quarter of 2018, representing a 17% increase compared to the second quarter of 2017. On a constant currency basis, Europe & ROW revenue increased 10% versus the second quarter of 2017. The increase was driven by strong tuberculosis revenue growth in core European markets, especially in the United Kingdom.

Asia revenue was $9.4 million in the second quarter of 2018, representing an increase of 16% compared to 2017 second quarter revenue of $8.1 million. On a constant currency basis, Asia revenue increased 15% versus the second quarter of 2017.

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2018 was $16.6 million, an increase of approximately $3.0 million from gross profit of $13.6 million in the same period of 2017. Gross margin was 56.7%, an increase of 450 basis points from gross margin of 52.2% in the second quarter of 2017. The increase in gross margin was primarily the result of lower royalty expenses, product mix, and continued operating improvements.

Operating expenses were $21.4 million in the second quarter of 2018, a decrease of approximately $10.0 million compared to $31.4 million in the second quarter of 2017. Excluding settlement and other one-time items in both periods, operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018 decreased approximately $2.2 million compared to the second quarter of 2017.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2018 was $6.5 million, or $0.25 per share, compared to $16.8 million, or $0.74 per share, in the second quarter of 2017. Net loss per share was based on 25,845,124 and 22,805,379 weighted average ordinary shares outstanding for the second quarters of 2018 and 2017, respectively. 

EBITDA for the second quarter of 2018 was $(4.0) million compared to $(17.4) million in the second quarter of 2017. Adjusted EBITDA was $(1.8) million for the second quarter of 2018 compared to $(6.3) million in the same period in 2017. Both EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-GAAP measures.

Business Outlook

We continue to expect to report full year 2018 revenue of between $112 and $115 million, representing 9% - 12% year-over-year growth as reported.

(1) 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.
