Prenetics Announces First Quarter 2022 Financial Results After a Successful Listing on the Nasdaq under the Ticker "PRE"

LONDON and HONG KONG, June 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Prenetics Global Limited (NASDAQ: PRE) ("Prenetics" or the "Company"), a global leader in genomic and diagnostic testing, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. The Company recorded strong operational and financial performance driven by solid diagnostics and genetic testing demand, and is on track to achieve revenue guidance for FY2022. 

Highlights

  • Record first quarter revenue of US$92.0 million, up 60.2% year-over-year
  • Loss from operation of US$$0.6 million and record first quarter adjusted EBITDA[1] of US$12.7 million
  • At least US$260 million cash from the successful completion of Nasdaq listing and strong balance sheet with zero debt to support both organic and inorganic growth
  • Significant progress in M&A discussions and geographic expansion
  • Robust product pipeline with ColoClear to launch on June 8th and Circle Snapshot to launch in July 2022

Danny Yeung, CEO & Co-founder of Prenetics, said "We are thrilled to be releasing our first financial results as a publicly listed company on the Nasdaq. While the overall market remains volatile, our focus has always been to deliver. Our results for the first quarter of 2022 provides a very strong momentum for us. In the coming weeks, we will launch ColoClear, a non-invasive stool DNA test for the screening of colorectal cancer and also Circle Snapshot, a patented, painless, push-button at-home blood test with laboratory test results delivered digitally. In addition, we are making significant progress in M&A discussions globally in the area of telehealth and personalized care which we believe will have significant synergies and provide us the tools needed to build out the World's first end to end health ecosystem."

First Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Total Revenues

Total revenues were US$92.0 million, representing an increase of 60.2% from the same period in 2021 and 42.2% from the previous quarter. This uplift was mainly driven by strong demand for the Company's diagnostics and genetic testing services, including contract awards for provision of COVID-19 testing services granted by the Hong Kong government and in the U.K. Prenetics has performed and delivered more than 22 million laboratory and at-home tests globally as of May 2022.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit increased by US$14.1 million, or 64.3%, from US$21.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to US$36.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to the increase in revenue outpacing the increase in direct cost.

Gross margin increased from 38.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to 39.2% for the three months ended March 31, 2022, primarily due to improved cost management in diagnostic testing services.

(Loss)/profit from operations

(Loss)/profit from operations decreased by US$11.5 million, or 105.0%, from profit from operations of US$11.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021 to loss from operations of US$0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The loss was primarily due to increase of non-cash share-based payment associated with an increase in the equity value of the Company.

Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Gross Profit (non-IFRS)

Adjusted EBITDA (non-IFRS) was US$12.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared with adjusted EBITDA (non-IFRS) US$12.5 million for the same period in 2021. Adjusted gross profit (non-IFRS)[2] was US$36.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022, compared with adjusted gross profit (non-IFRS) US$22.1 million for the same period in 2021. The increase was mainly due to increased operating efficiencies and scalability of the business.

Cash Balance

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of US$34.2 million, compared with US$35.3 million as of December 31, 2021.

[1] Adjusted EBITDA (non-IFRS) represents (loss)/profit from operations under IFRS before equity-settled share-based payment expenses, depreciation and amortization, other strategic financing, transactional expense and non-operating expense, and finance income, exchange gain or loss.

Basis of Presentation

Unaudited Financial Information and Non-IFRS Financial Measures has been provided in the financial statement tables included at the end of this press release. An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Unaudited Financial Information and Non-IFRS Financial Measures."

Unaudited Financial Information and Non-IFRS Financial Measures

To supplement Prenetics' consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), the Company is providing non-IFRS measures, Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted gross profit. These non-IFRS financial measures are not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by IFRS and are not necessarily comparable to similarly-titled measures presented by other companies. Management believes these non-IFRS financial measures are useful to investors in evaluating the Company's ongoing operating results and trends.

Management is excluding from some or all of its non-IFRS operating results (1) Equity-settled share-based payment expenses, (2) depreciation and amortization, (3) finance income and exchange gain or loss, and (4) other discretionary items determined by management. These non-IFRS financial measures are limited in value because they exclude certain items that may have a material impact on the reported financial results. Management accounts for this limitation by analyzing results on an IFRS basis as well as a non-IFRS basis and also by providing IFRS measures in the Company's public disclosures.

In addition, other companies, including companies in the same industry, may not use the same non-IFRS measures or may calculate these metrics in a different manner than management or may use other financial measures to evaluate their performance, all of which could reduce the usefulness of these non-IFRS measures as comparative measures. Because of these limitations, the Company's non-IFRS financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with IFRS. Investors are encouraged to review the non-IFRS reconciliations provided in the tables captioned "Reconciliation of (Loss)/profit from Operations under IFRS and Adjusted EBITDA (Non-IFRS)" and "Reconciliation of Gross Profit under IFRS and Adjusted Gross Profit (Non-IFRS)" set forth at the end of this document.
