QuidelOrtho Reports Preliminary Revenue Results for the First Quarter 2023

QuidelOrtho to report first quarter 2023 financial results on May 3, 2023

QuidelOrtho Corporation (Nasdaq: QDEL) (the “Company” or “QuidelOrtho”), a global provider of innovative in vitro diagnostic technologies designed for point-of-care settings, clinical labs and transfusion medicine, today announced preliminary revenue results for the first quarter ended April 2, 2023.

The Company expects total revenues in the first quarter of 2023 to be in the range of $840 million to $850 million. Respiratory product revenue is expected to be in the range of $262 million to $267 million, including COVID-19 product revenue of $212 million to $217 million. Non-respiratory product revenue is expected to be in the range of $578 million to $583 million, representing 5% growth on a supplemental combined basis and 7% growth on a constant currency basis at the midpoint. The increase in first quarter revenue results was driven by our Labs business unit, including an approximate $21 million settlement related to one of our collaboration agreements.

The preliminary revenue results described herein are based on management’s initial analysis for the first quarter ended April 2, 2023 and are subject to adjustments based on the Company’s completion of its quarter-end financial close process.

“After an exceptional fourth quarter of 2022, I am very pleased with our sustained momentum in the first quarter of 2023, which was ahead of expectations. This strong start to the year was supported by delivering more instruments driving strong results in our Labs business as well as better-than-expected results in the Point of Care business,” said Douglas Bryant, President and Chief Executive Officer of QuidelOrtho. “Our team delivered solid non-respiratory revenue growth across all major geographic regions, with notable strength in China, demonstrating the power of our newly created scale and breadth of offerings across the diagnostics continuum, as well as the durability of our business model. As we look ahead, our supply chain is improving, we are focused on our key growth drivers and we are confident in our ability to deliver sustainable high-single-digit growth over the coming years.”

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains “constant currency revenue growth,” which is considered a non-GAAP financial measure under applicable rules and regulations of the Commission. This non-GAAP financial measure should be considered supplemental to, and not a substitute for, financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). The Company’s definition of this non-GAAP measure may differ from similarly titled measures used by others. This non-GAAP financial measure reflects an additional way of viewing aspects of the Company’s operations that, when viewed with GAAP results and the reconciliation to the corresponding GAAP financial measure, may provide a more complete understanding of factors and trends affecting the Company’s business. Because this non-GAAP financial measure excludes the effect of items that will increase or decrease the Company’s reported results of operations, management strongly encourages investors to review the Company’s consolidated financial statements and reports filed with the Commission in their entirety. Reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure is included in the tables accompanying this press release.
