SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Affymetrix, Inc., (NAS: AFFX) today reported its operating results for the second quarter of 2013.

Results for the three months ended June 30, 2013:

  • Total revenue was $79.5 million, which included revenue from eBioscience of $18.8 million.

  • Product revenue was $74.2 million, as compared to product revenue on a combined pro forma basis for the second quarter of 2012 of $75.5 million, a decline of less than 2%. Please refer to "Itemized Reconciliation Between GAAP and Pro Forma Product Revenue" for a reconciliation of these GAAP and Non-GAAP financial measures.

  • GAAP net loss was $6.1 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, as compared to a net loss of $21.5 million, or $0.30 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2012.

  • Non-GAAP net income was $2.8 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, as compared to a Non-GAAP net loss of $1.2 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2012. Please refer to "Itemized Reconciliation Between GAAP and Non-GAAP Net Loss" for a reconciliation of these GAAP and Non-GAAP financial measures.

  • Total balance in cash and cash equivalents was $44.1 million at the end of June 30, 2013.


Product revenue for the second quarter of 2013 was $74.2 million and service and other revenue was $5.3 million. This compares to product revenue of $58.5 million and service and other revenue of $7.9 million in the second quarter of 2012. Product revenue for the second quarter of 2013 included Affymetrix core consumable revenue of $51.2 million, instrument revenue of $4.2 million and revenue from eBioscience of $18.8 million. Product revenue for the second quarter of 2012 included Affymetrix core consumable revenue of $53.3 million and instrument revenue of $3.8 million and revenue from eBioscience of $1.4 million.

Total gross margin was 53%, as compared to 58% in the same period of 2012. Excluding Non-GAAP adjustments such as the amortization of step-up in inventory fair value, total margin was 60% and 59% for both years, respectively. Please refer to the "Itemized Reconciliation Between GAAP and Non-GAAP Gross Margin" for a reconciliation of these GAAP and Non-GAAP financial measures.

For the second quarter of 2013, operating expenses were $45.1 million on a GAAP basis as compared to $54.1 million in 2012. Excluding Non-GAAP adjustments such as the amortization of acquired intangible assets and non-recurring charges, operating expenses were $42.0 million, compared to an adjusted total of $48.3 million in 2012. The decrease in 2013 is primarily driven by lower headcount and variable compensation expenditure following the restructuring announced on January 11, 2013 and due to non-recurring acquisition- and integration-related costs incurred during 2012. Please refer to the "Itemized Reconciliation Between GAAP and Non-GAAP Operating Expenses" for a reconciliation of these GAAP and Non-GAAP financial measures.

"We were encouraged by the second quarter revenue results across all our business units as compared to the first quarter of the year, including another quarter of strong growth in our Genetic Analysis business and improved results in our Expression business," said Frank Witney, President and CEO. "From a geographic perspective our business strengthened in both Europe and North America while Japan remained soft."

"We are pleased that our careful control of operating expenses and stronger revenue has generated approximately $10.3 million in cash flow from operations. Since June of last year we have reduced our senior-secured debt by nearly 25%," stated Gavin Wood, EVP and CFO. "We exited the quarter with $44 million in cash-on-hand."

Recent developments:

  • Earlier this week the Company announced the introduction of the Axiom® 384HT Genotyping Format, a cost-effective, high-throughput platform for simultaneously genotyping up to 384 samples. The array content of the new Axiom 384HT format is fully customizable, supporting applications ranging from detailed assessment of human disease to high throughput agricultural screening and marker assisted breeding. This new 384-array format runs on the existing GeneTitan® Instrument, providing researchers with flexible choice of array formats on a single automated platform for identification, validation, and screening of complex genetic traits.

  • Affymetrix appointed Mr. Gavin Wood to the position of Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Wood joined Affymetrix in 2006 and served most recently as VP Finance, International Controller based in the United Kingdom.
