OXFORD, United Kingdom and MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Oct. 31, 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 third quarter 2017 financial results.

"We are pleased to report another strong quarter, with solid growth across both franchises and all three geographies served," said Dr. Peter Wrighton-Smith, Chief Executive Officer of Oxford Immunotec. "As we move forward through the remainder of the year and into 2018, we will continue to focus on driving revenue growth and progressing the company towards profitability."

Product $   12.0   $   9.7   24 %
Service     18.4       16.4   12 %

By geography, total revenues were, in millions:

  Three Months Ended September 30,
          Percent Change
   2017    2016   As Reported   Constant
United States $   18.8   $   16.2   16 %   16 %

(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.

Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Revenue for the third quarter of 2017 was $30.4 million, representing 17% growth over third quarter 2016 revenue of $26.1 million. On a constant currency basis, revenue growth was also 17% versus the prior year period. Tuberculosis revenue for the third quarter of $24.4 million increased 11% over the prior year period.

2017 third quarter product revenue was $12.0 million, representing a 24% increase from product revenue of $9.7 million in the third quarter of 2016. The increase was primarily driven by sales of tick-borne disease kits, as well as growth in Asia and Europe & ROW. Service revenue for the third quarter of 2017 was $18.4 million, up 12% from 2016 third quarter revenue of $16.4 million. The increase in service revenue was primarily driven by strong growth in our tick-borne disease business, as well as tuberculosis volume increases in the United States.

United States revenue was $18.8 million in the third quarter of 2017, representing 16% growth over revenue of $16.2 million in the prior year period. The increase was due to growth in our tuberculosis and tick-borne disease businesses.

Europe & ROW revenue was $2.2 million in the third quarter of 2017, representing a 26% increase compared to the third quarter of 2016. On a constant currency basis, Europe & ROW increased 22% versus the third quarter of 2016. The increase was primarily due to tuberculosis growth in the UK and continental European markets, as well as sales of tick-borne disease kits.

Asia revenue was $9.4 million in the third quarter of 2017, representing an increase of 15% over 2016 third quarter revenue of $8.2 million. On a constant currency basis, Asia increased 18% versus the third quarter of 2016. The increase was primarily due to the timing of orders and higher sales in South Korea.

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2017 was $17.3 million, an increase of $2.7 million over gross profit of $14.6 million in the same period of 2016. Gross margin was 56.7%, an increase of 80 basis points from gross margin of 55.9% in the third quarter of 2016. The third quarter gross margin performance reflects lower royalty expenses due to the June 2017 Statens Serum Institut settlement, an underlying improvement in TB margins, and favorable mix, offset by higher volumes in our tick-borne disease business, which carries lower gross margins, as well as some early infrastructure investments necessary to meet future growth.

Operating expenses were $32.5 million in the third quarter of 2017, an increase of $13.6 million compared to $18.9 million in the same period last year. The increase in operating expenses was largely due to the inclusion of a one-time non-cash impairment charge of $11.1 million to write-off certain intangible assets acquired in conjunction with the 2016 acquisition of Imugen, as well as expenses related to our BLA submissions and ongoing patent litigation. In the third quarter, we also recorded a credit of $880,000 related to the change in fair value of contingent consideration associated with the acquisition of Immunetics.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2017 was $16.9 million, or $0.70 per share, compared to $4.0 million, or $0.18 per share, in the third quarter of 2016. Net loss per share was based on 24,123,574 and 22,365,349 weighted average ordinary shares outstanding for the third quarters of 2017 and 2016, respectively.

EBITDA for the third quarter was $(14.7) million compared to $(3.0) million in the third quarter of 2016. Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter of 2017 was $(2.5) million compared to $(2.2) 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 $25.4 and $26.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2017.

We now expect to report full year 2017 revenue of between $103.5 and $104.5 million, representing 20% - 21% year-over-year growth. We expect revenue to increase approximately 21% to 22% for the year using constant exchange rates. This compares to prior revenue guidance of between $103 and $106 million.

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.

Meltwater launches data science platform to tame real-time market signals found in world’s online data14.8.2018 15:00Pressemelding

AI-powered platform democratises analytics of forward-looking indicators based on insights from the outside, known as Outside Insight SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In the quest to become data-driven, companies are increasingly investing in Business Intelligence software to gain a competitive advantage. Yet the insights generated by those tools are mostly fuelled by data from within a company’s walls, instead of the real-time market signals found externally online – from consumer opinions to corporate filings. This outside data can unlock key indicators about an industry or competitor, but harnessing the volume and variety of global data is a time-intensive task. And although advances in artificial intelligence have made it easier to capture and analyse this data to create powerful insights, most commercial AI tools are one-size-fits-all models with limited capabilities. That’s why Meltwater – a pioneer of media intelligence and curator of the world’s most diverse col
