16:05 EDT Monday, October 21, 2013

SAN DIEGO (Business Wire) -- Illumina, Inc. (NASDAQ:ILMN) today announced its financial results for the third quarter of 2013.

Third quarter 2013 results:

  • Revenue of $357 million, a 25% increase compared to $286 million in the third quarter of 2012
  • GAAP net income for the quarter of $31 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, compared to $30 million, or $0.22 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012
  • Non-GAAP net income for the quarter of $63 million, or $0.45 per diluted share, compared to $54 million, or $0.41 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2012 (see the table entitled “Itemized Reconciliation Between GAAP and Non-GAAP Net Income” for a reconciliation of these GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures)
  • Cash flow from operations of $83 million and free cash flow of $64 million for the quarter

Gross margin in the third quarter of 2013 was 58.8% compared to 68.5% in the prior year period. Cost of product sales during the third quarter of 2013 included impairment charges of $25.2 million related to discontinuation of a non-core product line. Excluding the effect of these charges as well as stock compensation, amortization of acquired intangible assets, and legal contingencies, non-GAAP gross margin was 70.2% for the third quarter of 2013 compared to 70.5% in the prior year period.

Research and development (R&D) expenses for the third quarter of 2013 were $71.0 million compared to $54.1 million in the third quarter of 2012. R&D expenses included $9.6 million and $7.8 million of non-cash stock compensation expense in the third quarters of 2013 and 2012, respectively. Excluding these charges and contingent compensation, R&D expenses as a percentage of revenue were 17.2% compared to 15.9% in the prior year period.

Selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses for the third quarter of 2013 were $95.6 million compared to $69.8 million for the third quarter of 2012. SG&A expenses included $16.1 million and $13.2 million of non-cash stock compensation expense in the third quarters of 2013 and 2012, respectively. Excluding these charges, amortization of acquired intangible assets, and contingent compensation, SG&A expenses as a percentage of revenue were 20.6% compared to 19.5% in the prior year period.

Depreciation and amortization expenses were $26.9 million and capital expenditures were $18.9 million during the third quarter of 2013. The Company ended the third quarter of 2013 with $1.03 billion in cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, compared to $1.35 billion as of December 30, 2012.

“These results highlight another quarter of solid operational execution and record financial performance,” said Illumina's President and Chief Executive Officer, Jay Flatley. “We continue to be pleased with the robust global trends demonstrated by our business and believe we are positioned to continue to deliver strong growth.”

Financial outlook and guidance

The non-GAAP financial guidance discussed below reflects certain pro forma adjustments to assist in analyzing and assessing our core operational performance. Please see our Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Guidance included in this release for a reconciliation of the GAAP and Non-GAAP financial measures.

For fiscal 2013 the Company is now projecting approximately 22% revenue growth and non-GAAP earnings per fully diluted share of $1.75 to $1.77, including the impact of the Verinata and Advanced Liquid Logic acquisitions. These projections assume full year non-GAAP gross margin of approximately 69.5%, a pro forma tax rate of approximately 30% and stock compensation expense of approximately $105 million. Full-year weighted average diluted shares outstanding, for the measurement of pro forma amounts, is expected to be approximately 139 million shares assuming the current stock price.

Quarterly conference call information

The conference call will begin at 2:00 pm Pacific Time (5:00 pm Eastern Time) on Monday, October 21, 2013. Interested parties may listen to the call by dialing 888.680.0869 (passcode: 91263308), or if outside North America by dialing 1.617.213.4854 (passcode: 91263308).

Statement regarding use of non-GAAP financial measures

The Company reports non-GAAP results for diluted net income per share, net income, gross margins, operating expenses, operating margins, other income, and free cash flow in addition to, and not as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP.

The Company's financial measures under GAAP include substantial charges related to stock compensation expense, legal contingencies, amortization expense related to acquired intangible assets, non-cash interest expense associated with the company's convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash, impairment charges, costs related to the unsolicited tender offer for the company's stock, acquisition related expense, and others that are listed in the itemized reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP financial measures included in this press release. Per share amounts also include the double dilution associated with the accounting treatment of the Company's 0.625% convertible senior notes outstanding and the corresponding call option overlay. Management believes that presentation of operating results that excludes these items and per share double dilution provides useful supplemental information to investors and facilitates the analysis of the Company's core operating results and comparison of operating results across reporting periods. Management also believes that this supplemental non-GAAP information is therefore useful to investors in analyzing and assessing the Company's past and future operating performance.

The Company encourages investors to carefully consider its results under GAAP, as well as its supplemental non-GAAP information and the reconciliation between these presentations, to more fully understand its business. Reconciliations between GAAP and non-GAAP results are presented in the tables of this release.

(a)

Free cash flow, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, is calculated as net cash provided by operating activities reduced by purchases of property and equipment. Free cash flow is useful to management as it is one of the metrics used to evaluate our performance and to compare us with other companies in our industry. However, our calculation of free cash flow may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies.

Weighted average shares used in calculation of GAAP diluted net income per share 140,601 132,507 138,630 133,126
Weighted average dilutive potential common shares issuable of redeemable convertible senior notes (a) (1,028 ) (906 ) (1,051 ) (941 )
Weighted average shares used in calculation of non-GAAP diluted net income per share 139,573   131,601   137,579   132,185  
 
     
 

(a)

Pro forma impact of weighted average shares includes the impact of double dilution associated with the accounting treatment of the Company's outstanding convertible debt and the corresponding call option overlay.
 

(b)

Impairment charges of $25.2 million were recorded in Q3 2013 due to the discontinuation of a non-core product line. Assets impaired primarily included a developed technology intangible asset. The impairment charge in 2012 related to the impairment of an in-process research and development intangible asset.
 

(c)

Non-cash interest expense is calculated in accordance with the authoritative accounting guidance for convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash.
 

(d)

Legal contingencies during the current year primarily represent charges recorded based on an amended judgment associated with the patent litigation brought by Syntrix Biosystems, Inc., or Syntrix. Illumina continues to believe that Syntrix's claims are without merit and are not supported by the law or facts. Accordingly, Illumina filed its post-trial motion on July 17, 2013 asking the court to vacate the amended judgment and to enter judgment in our favor or, alternatively, to grant a new trial. If the post-trial motion is unsuccessful, the Company plans to file an appeal challenging the adverse verdict.
 

(e)

Acquisition related (gain) expense, net, during the first three quarters of 2013 consisted primarily of $11.0 million in net gains from changes in fair value of contingent consideration, of which $5.8 million was recorded in Q3. Such gains were partially offset by transaction costs of $3.5 million recorded mostly in Q1, and other acquisition related costs. Acquisition related (gain) expense, net, in Q3 2012 and first three quarters of 2012 consisted of changes in fair value of contingent consideration and transaction costs of $0.7 million recorded in Q3.
 

(f)

Contingent compensation expense relates to contingent payments for post-combination services associated with acquisitions.
 

(g)

Headquarter relocation for the first three quarters of 2013 consisted of a gain on lease exit liability recorded in Q2 as a result of the Company entering into a sublease at a more favorable rate than previously estimated, partially offset by accretion of interest expense recorded in each of the three quarters on such lease exit liability. Headquarter relocation expense in Q3 2012 and first three quarters of 2012 consisted primarily of the cease-use loss recorded upon vacating our headquarters, double rent expense during the transition to the new headquarters, accretion of interest expense on lease exit liability, and moving costs.
 

(h)

The Company recorded $0.5 million in cost of goods sold in Q1 2013 for the amortization of inventory revaluation costs in conjunction with the acquisition of Verinata Health, Inc.
 

(i)

Incremental non-GAAP tax expense reflects the increase to GAAP tax expense related to the non-GAAP adjustments listed above.
 

(j)

Non-GAAP net income and net income per share exclude the effect of the pro forma adjustments as detailed above. Non-GAAP net income and net income per share are key drivers of the Company's core operating performance and major factors in management's bonus compensation each year. Management has excluded the effects of these items in these measures to assist investors in analyzing and assessing past and future core operating performance.

(a)

Impairment charges of $25.2 million were recorded in Q3 2013 due to the discontinuation of a non-core product line. Assets impaired primarily included a developed technology intangible asset. The impairment charge in 2012 related to the impairment of an in-process research and development intangible asset.
 

(b)

Legal contingencies during the current year primarily represent charges recorded based on an amended judgment associated with the patent litigation brought by Syntrix Biosystems, Inc., or Syntrix. Illumina continues to believe that Syntrix's claims are without merit and are not supported by the law or facts. Accordingly, Illumina filed its post-trial motion on July 17, 2013 asking the court to vacate the amended judgment and to enter judgment in our favor or, alternatively, to grant a new trial. If the post-trial motion is unsuccessful, the Company plans to file an appeal challenging the adverse verdict.
 

(c)

The Company recorded $0.5 million in cost of goods sold in Q1 2013 for the amortization of inventory revaluation costs in conjunction with the acquisition of Verinata Health, Inc.
 

(d)

Non-GAAP operating profit, and non-GAAP other income, net, exclude the effects of the pro forma adjustments as detailed above. Management has excluded the effects of these items in these measures to assist investors in analyzing and assessing past and future core operating performance. Non-GAAP gross profit, included within the non-GAAP operating profit, is a key measure of the effectiveness and efficiency of manufacturing processes, product mix and the average selling prices of the Company's products and services.
 

(e)

Contingent compensation expense relates to contingent payments for post-combination services associated with acquisitions.
 

(f)

Acquisition related (gain) expense, net, during the first three quarters of 2013 consisted primarily of $11.0 million in net gains from changes in fair value of contingent consideration, of which $5.8 million was recorded in Q3. Such gains were partially offset by transaction costs of $3.5 million recorded mostly in Q1, and other acquisition related costs. Acquisition related (gain) expense, net, in Q3 2012 and first three quarters of 2012 consisted of changes in fair value of contingent consideration and transaction costs of $0.7 million recorded in Q3.
 

(g)

Headquarter relocation for the first three quarters of 2013 consisted of a gain on lease exit liability recorded in Q2 as a result of the Company entering into a sublease at a more favorable rate than previously estimated, partially offset by accretion of interest expense recorded in each of the three quarters on such lease exit liability. Headquarter relocation expense in Q3 2012 and first three quarters of 2012 consisted primarily of the cease-use loss recorded upon vacating our headquarters, double rent expense during the transition to the new headquarters, accretion of interest expense on lease exit liability, and moving costs.
 

(h)

Non-cash interest expense is calculated in accordance with the authoritative accounting guidance for convertible debt instruments that may be settled in cash.
