Cryoport Revenue Up 52% for the Second Quarter of 2017, Driven by Biopharma

Biopharma revenue up 69% year-over-year; 33 new clinical trials supported during second quarter

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cryoport, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYRX, CYRXW), the world's leading cryogenic logistics company dedicated to the life sciences industry, today announced financial results for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2017.

"As the most advanced solutions provider of temperature controlled logistics serving the life sciences, Cryoport is setting the 'gold standard' for reproductive medicine, animal health and biopharma, particularly within the dynamic regenerative medicine market as we position our Company for significant revenue growth for years to come," commented Jerrell Shelton, Cryoport's Chief Executive Officer. "Recently Novartis selected us to support its impending commercial launch of CAR T-cell therapy, CTL019/CD19, for the treatment of relapsed and refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Our multiyear agreement marks the first commercial contract in the regenerative medicine market and is a testament to our advanced temperature controlled logistics solutions and expertise.

"Commercial agreements such as these," he continued, "will undoubtedly grow and as we provide our vital services, these types of relationships have the potential to drive substantial revenue growth for Cryoport. We are a transformative temperature controlled logistics solution provider serving a transformative biopharma industry, which, we think, has enormous growth ahead of it.

"So, it should be clear that our sales and marketing strategy is, therefore, largely centered on securing clinical trial logistics solution agreements with biopharma companies, which position Cryoport to expand its service agreements as therapies move through the clinical trial phases and move to commercial viability. During the second quarter, we secured an additional 33 new clinical trials with new and existing biopharma companies bringing the total number of trials supported by Cryoport to 172, compared with 90 this time last year. These trials are a strong foundation from which we will grow our business. It is a special time as the regenerative medicine industry is experiencing higher levels of activity, with several treatments approaching potential commercialization. We are in a solid position to scale our business as we continue to strengthen our reputation in the life sciences as the 'go to' for advanced, dependable temperature controlled logistics solutions."

Mr. Shelton concluded, "Biopharma revenue now accounts for 76% of our total revenue and is clearly our largest growth market. However, our animal health and reproductive medicine revenue were both up 21% for the six-month period and continue to provide steady cash flow. We are proud of the achievements of our people, individually, and our team, collectively, as we continue to demonstrate our ability to successfully leverage the industry-wide growth in the life sciences and to secure revenue opportunities that build Cryoport and value for its shareholders."

Market Highlights:


  • Biopharma revenue increased by 69% in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the prior year quarter

  • Reproductive Medicine revenue increased by 15% for the second quarter compared to the same quarter last year, led by a 57% increase in the U.S. market, which was partially offset by a decline in international revenue of 33%.

  • Adjusted EBITDA for the three and six-month periods ended June 30, 2017 was ($890,000) and ($1.8 million), respectively, a reduction of 22% and 39% compared to ($1.1 million) and ($2.9 million) in the same three and six-month periods in the prior year.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This news release contains non-GAAP financial measures as defined in Regulation G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  These financial measures are not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. In evaluating the Company's performance, management uses certain non-GAAP financial measures to supplement financial statements prepared under GAAP. Management believes the following non-GAAP financial measure, adjusted EBITDA, to provide a useful measure of the Company's operating results, a meaningful comparison with historical results and with the results of other companies, and insight into the Company's ongoing operating performance. Further, management and the Board of Directors utilize these non-GAAP financial measures to gain a better understanding of the Company's comparative operating performance from period-to-period and as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures, when read in conjunction with the Company's GAAP financials, are useful to investors because they provide a basis for meaningful period-to-period comparisons of the Company's ongoing operating results, including results of operations, against investor and analyst financial models, identifying trends in the Company's underlying business and performing related trend analyses, and they provide a better understanding of how management plans and measures the Company's underlying business.
