BioLife Solutions Reports Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Record revenue of $40.7 million increased 21% over Q3 2021; biopreservation media revenue growth of 50%, validating leading position as a critical cell and gene therapies tool supplier

Cash flow from operations of $1.5 million and adjusted EBITDA of $1.4 million

Tightens 2022 revenue guidance range reflecting year-over-year growth of 34% to 38% and organic growth of 37% to 40%

Conference call begins at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time today 

BOTHELL, Wash., Nov. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- BioLife Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLFS) ("BioLife" or the "Company"), a leading developer and supplier of class-defining bioproduction products and services for the cell and gene therapy (CGT) and the broader biopharma markets, today announced financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022.

Mike Rice, Chairman and CEO, commented, "Against a backdrop of several macro headwinds affecting the life science tools industry, our team delivered a strong quarterly performance from our diversified offering of products and services, setting the stage for record full-year revenue. We are tightening our 2022 revenue guidance range and have a bullish outlook for 2023, driven by strong growth expectations from our Cell Processing platform."

"Our high-margin biopreservation media product line, which is recurring consumables revenue, grew 50% over Q3 2021. With our year-to-date results, BioLife has validated its position as a CGT tools leader. We generated record total revenue for Q3 despite a prior year comparable that included significant COVID-related revenue. We continue to diversify our customer base and increase cross-selling success by partnering with customers to drive adoption of multiple platforms, all of which can reduce risk in CGT manufacturing, storage and distribution. It's important to note that in Q3, 44% of total revenue was from proprietary consumables and 18% was from recurring service revenue, so over 60% of total revenue was from non-capital equipment sales."

Troy Wichterman, CFO, added, "We achieved positive adjusted EBITDA of $1.4 million for the third quarter, with further gains expected in Q4 2022. Although we continue to experience strong demand for our biopreservation media products, we are adjusting the top of our 2022 revenue guidance range to reflect expected shipment delays related to industry-wide supply-chain challenges impacting our cryogenic freezer product line. Any delays are expected to create a backlog of orders that we expect to ship in Q1 2023."

Operational Highlights

  • For the third quarter of 2022, we gained 193 new direct customer sites including 14 for biopreservation media, 11 for ThawSTAR® systems, 12 for evo® cold chain management services, 14 for CBS cryogenic freezers and accessories, 114 for Stirling ULT freezers and accessories, 18 for SciSafe® biologic storage services and 10 for Sexton cell processing products.
  • For the third quarter of 2022, we received 19 new U.S. FDA Drug Master File cross-reference requests, indicating the planned use of CryoStor® or HypoThermosol® in pending CGT clinical trials. To date, we estimate our biopreservation media products have been used in or are planned to be used in 570 customer clinical applications, including 11 approved CGT products and at least 10 therapies with regulatory filings expected to be submitted in 2022 or 2023. We continue to estimate annual biopreservation media revenue per approved commercial application will range from $500,000 to $2 million.
  • Use of our evo cold chain solution by CGT end customers continued to increase in Q3 2022. Our more than 2,000 courier partner shipments were up 100% over Q3 2021. This adoption validates our belief that the evo platform will increasingly be selected as a class-defining temperature-controlled shipping container and related cloud app by leading CGT companies. We are currently supporting four of the six currently approved CAR T-cell therapies. By mid 2023, we expect the evo platform to be used in all of the currently approved CAR T-cell therapies.
  • Biological storage services revenue increased significantly in Q3 2022 as we onboarded 18 new customers. Due to increased interest from several global pharma companies and healthcare organizations, we are evaluating several potential sites for our next biorepository location. We expect to finalize a decision in early 2023.
  • ULT freezer quality continued to improve in Q3 2022 and product lead times were reduced from 12 weeks to zero since the beginning of 2022, despite continued supply chain disruptions. Our field upgrade is about 70% complete and we expect to materially conclude upgrades by the end of the year. Our sales team and distributors continue to drive ULT freezer sales to non-COVID-19 customers, including CGT developers.

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

BioLife Solutions is presenting various financial metrics under U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and as adjusted (non-GAAP). A reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP metrics appears at the end of this news release.

REVENUE

  • Total revenue for the third quarter of 2022 was $40.7 million, an increase of $6.9 million, or 21%, from $33.8 million for the third quarter of 2021. Organic revenue growth was 18%. COVID-19 related revenue was approximately 9%, compared with approximately 18% in Q3 2021.
    • Cell Processing platform revenue was $18.1 million, up $6.6 million, or 57%, over the same period in 2021. Biopreservation media and organic cell processing growth were both 50%.
    • Freezers and Thaw Systems platform revenue was $15.3 million, down $2.3 million, or (13%), over the same period in 2021, due to a decline in COVID-related revenue which was 23% of platform revenue in Q3 2021 versus only 4% of platform revenue in Q3 2022. This platform was impacted by supply-chain issues that delayed the shipment of several cryogenic freezer orders, which have already shipped or will ship in Q4.
    • Storage and Storage Services platform revenue was $7.3 million, up $2.6 million, or 56%, over the same period in 2021. Organic growth was 56%. COVID-19 related revenue was approximately 40% for this platform.
  • Total revenue for the first nine months of 2022 was $117.5 million, an increase of $35.6 million, or 44%, from $81.9 million for the first nine months of 2021.  Organic revenue growth was 44%. COVID-19 related revenue was approximately 9%, compared with approximately 16% in 2021.
    • Cell Processing platform revenue was $48.3 million, up $18.2 million, or 60%, over 2021. Organic growth was 49%.
    • Freezers and Thaw Systems platform revenue was $49.3 million, up $9.3 million, or 23%, over 2021. Organic growth was 10%. COVID-19 related revenue was approximately 4%.
    • Storage and Storage Services platform revenue was $19.8 million, up $8.1 million, or 69%, for the total and organic growth over 2021. COVID-19 related revenue was approximately 45%.

GROSS MARGIN

  • Gross margin (GAAP) for the third quarter of 2022 was 31% compared with 25% for the third quarter of 2021. Adjusted gross margin (non-GAAP) for the third quarter of 2022 was 34% compared with 28% for the third quarter of 2021.
  • Gross margin (GAAP) for the first nine months of 2022 was 31% compared with 36% for the first nine months of 2021. Adjusted gross margin (non-GAAP) for the first nine months of 2022 was 34% compared with 39% for the first nine months of 2021.
  • The change in gross margin in both periods was primarily due to a shift in product mix after the acquisition of Global Cooling, Inc. (Stirling Ultracold), which has lower gross margins than the remainder of BioLife's portfolio. The sequential quarterly decline in GAAP and non-GAAP gross margin was primarily due to supplier quality issues impacting yield and customer mix.

OPERATING EXPENSE

  • Operating expense (GAAP) for the third quarter of 2022 was $52.2 million compared with $45.0 million for the third quarter of 2021. Adjusted operating expense (non-GAAP) for the third quarter of 2022 was $20.5 million compared with $17.4 million for the third quarter 2021.
  • Operating expense (GAAP) for the first nine months of 2022 was $212.8 million compared with $98.5 million for the first nine months of 2021. Adjusted operating expense (non-GAAP) for the first nine months of 2022 was $60.3 million compared with $39.5 million for the first nine months of 2021.
  • The increase in GAAP operating expense for the first nine months of 2022 was primarily due to a non-cash impairment charge of $69.9 million related to the acquired intangible assets of Global Cooling, Inc. (Stirling Ultracold). Adjusted operating expenses (non-GAAP) increased due to the full period of ownership from the acquisition of Global Cooling, Inc. on May 3, 2021, and the acquisition of Sexton Biotechnologies, Inc. on September 1, 2021. In addition, operating expenses increased due to higher accounting costs related to becoming a Large Accelerated Filer and additional headcount to support our growth.

OPERATING INCOME/(LOSS)

  • Operating loss (GAAP) for the third quarter of 2022 was $11.4 million compared with operating loss of $11.2 million for the third quarter of 2021. Adjusted operating loss (non-GAAP) for the third quarter of 2022 was $6.7 million compared with $8.1 million for the third quarter of 2021.
  • Operating loss (GAAP) for the first nine months of 2022 was $95.3 million compared with operating loss of $16.7 million for the first nine months of 2021. Adjusted operating loss (non-GAAP) for the first nine months of 2022 was $20.2 million compared with $7.5 million for the first nine months of 2021.

NET INCOME/(LOSS)

  • Net loss (GAAP) for the third quarter of 2022 was $10.0 million compared with net income of $79,000 for the third quarter of 2021. Adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) for the third quarter of 2022 was $6.6 million compared with adjusted net loss of $8.3 million for the third quarter of 2021.
  • Net loss (GAAP) for the first nine months of 2022 was $89.6 million compared with net income of $6.8 million for the first nine months of 2021. Adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) for the first nine months of 2022 was $20.1 million compared with adjusted net loss of $7.8 million for the first nine months of 2021.

EARNINGS/(LOSS) PER SHARE

  • Loss per share (GAAP) for the third quarter of 2022 was $0.23 compared with earnings per diluted share of $0.00 for the third quarter of 2021.
  • Loss per share (GAAP) for the first nine months of 2022 was $2.11 and included a non-cash intangible impairment charge of $1.65 per share. This compared with earnings per diluted share for the first nine months of 2021 of $0.17.

ADJUSTED EBITDA

  • Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, for the third quarter of 2022 was $1.4 million compared with negative $2.1 million for the third quarter of 2021.
  •  Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, for the first nine months of 2022 was $2.8 million compared with $4.4 million for the first nine months of 2021.

CASH, CASH EQUIVALENTS AND MARKETABLE SECURITIES

  • Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities as of September 30, 2022 were $62.1 million compared to $46.6 million as of June 30, 2022. The increase of cash in the third quarter was primarily related to borrowing $20 million upon closure of a term loan agreement and positive cash flow from operations of $1.5 million, offset by the repayment of a separate term loan and capital expenditures.

2022 Revenue Guidance

Management is updating 2022 revenue guidance.  Total revenue for 2022 is now expected to range from $160 million to $164 million compared with prior guidance of $160 million to $166 million, and reflects year-over-year growth of 34% to 38% and organic growth of 37% to 40%. COVID-19 related revenue is expected to account for approximately 7% to 8% of total revenue.

This revised revenue guidance includes the following platform contributions:

  • Cell Processing platform: $67.0 million to $68.0 million, an increase of 49% to 51% over 2021 and organic growth of 42% to 43%. This includes biopreservation media and Sexton products. Previous revenue guidance was in a range from $67.0 million to $69.5 million. This modest reduction in the top of the range is due to anticipated supply chain constraints.
  • Freezers and Thaw Systems platform: $66.0 million to $68.0 million, an increase of 17% to 20% over 2021 and organic growth of 8% to 13%. COVID-19 related revenue is expected to account for 3% of the freezer and thaw systems platform revenue in 2022. This includes ThawSTAR thawing devices, cryogenic liquid nitrogen freezers and ULT Stirling freezers. There continues to be some supply chain risk which could impact this platform in Q1. Previous revenue guidance was in a range from $70.0 million to $71.5 million. This reduction is due to anticipated supply chain constraints.
  • Storage and Storage Services platform: $27.0 million to $28.0 million, a total and organic increase of 54% to 59% over 2021. COVID-19 related revenue is expected to account for approximately 40% to 45% of the storage and storage services platform revenue. COVID-19 related storage revenue is primarily generated from contracts, including some that extend beyond 2022. Previous revenue guidance was in a range from $23.0 million to $25.0 million. The increase is due to anticipated increased demand for our Storage and Storage Services

Although the Company does not provide guidance below the revenue line, BioLife expects positive full year adjusted EBITDA.
