Cryoport Revenue Grows 59% for Second Quarter 2018; 73% in Biopharma

Revenue from Approved CAR-T Therapies Continues to Ramp

Record 258 Clinical Trials Now Supported by Cryoport, with 34 Programs in Phase III

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Cryoport, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYRX) (NASDAQ: CYRXW) ("Cryoport" or the "Company"), the world's leading temperature-controlled logistics company dedicated to the life sciences industry, today announced financial results for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2018.

Cryoport, Inc.

"This was another strong quarter for Cryoport, as revenues from clinical support programs and the ongoing ramp from our commercial agreements with Gilead and Novartis, drove 59% revenue growth year over year," Jerrell Shelton, Chief Executive Officer of Cryoport, commented. "These commercial ramps will continue to gain pace as additional points of care become certified and patient flows increase. Furthermore, with both Yescarta™ and Kymriah™ advancing toward expected European approvals later in the third quarter, we can expect to see a continued expansion of our services under our agreements with Gilead and Novartis as they bring their cell therapies to a wider range of patients in critical need of effective treatment option.  We also anticipate additional filings from both Gilead and Novartis in the near future as both companies expand their therapies to support the global population.

"To support anticipated growth, we are investing in building out the Company's global infrastructure. We continue to make significant progress expanding and improving our competencies across every area of our business. Of note, we have moved quickly to open two new, state-of-the-art Cryoport Global Logistics Centres in New Jersey and The Netherlands. Both facilities are operational and supporting customers with official openings scheduled for the month of October.  These investments in our global infrastructure are just a part of the work we are doing to support the expected needs of our clients as their therapies are approved in Europe, the United States and, soon, Asia.

"To date in 2018, five BLA or EMA filings have occurred and we expect another four BLA or EMA filings to occur before year end. The demand we are experiencing from existing customers reaches beyond the U.S. and Europe to the Asia Pacific region, where we are also currently in various stages of planning to further expand our global footprint. We can clearly see the pathway to accelerated revenue growth ahead of us and are working diligently to make sure we are well-positioned to accommodate this anticipated ramp of our client's therapies.

"As the biopharma market is our highest growth market opportunity, it is our focus; however, we are also excelling in serving two other very important markets. Both the Reproductive Medicine and Animal Health markets embrace our technology and expertise. Customer reviews from these markets clearly position us as the leader in each of these respective markets.  We remain committed to investing in both the Reproductive Medicine and Animal Health markets as to drive overall longer-term revenue growth," concluded Mr. Shelton.
