Financial data from Veracyte earnings reports

Financial report summary

  • We have a history of losses, and we expect to incur net losses for the foreseeable future and may never achieve or sustain profitability.
  • Our financial results currently depend mainly on sales of our Afirma tests, and we will need to generate sufficient revenue from this and other diagnostic solutions to grow our business.
  • We depend on a few payers for a significant portion of our revenue and if one or more significant payers stops providing reimbursement or decreases the amount of reimbursement for our tests, our revenue could decline.
  • If payers do not provide reimbursement, rescind or modify their reimbursement policies, delay payments for our tests, recoup past payments, or if we are unable to successfully negotiate additional reimbursement contracts, our commercial success could be compromised.
  • We may experience limits on our revenue if physicians decide not to order our tests.
  • We may experience limits on our revenue if patients decide not to use our tests.
  • If we fail to comply with federal and state licensing requirements, we could lose the ability to perform our tests or experience disruptions to our business.
  • We rely on sole suppliers for some of the reagents, equipment, chips and other materials used to perform our tests, and we may not be able to find replacements or transition to alternative suppliers.
  • We depend on a specialized cytopathology practice to perform the cytopathology component of our Afirma test, and our ability to perform our diagnostic solution would be harmed if we were required to secure a replacement.
  • Due to how we recognize revenue, our quarterly operating results are likely to fluctuate.
  • We may be unable to manage our future growth effectively, which could make it difficult to execute our business strategy.
  • If we are unable to support demand for our commercial tests, our business could suffer.
  • Changes in healthcare policy, including legislation reforming the U.S. healthcare system, may have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and operations.
  • Because of Medicare billing rules, we may not receive reimbursement for all tests provided to Medicare patients.
  • If the FDA were to begin regulating our tests, we could incur substantial costs and delays associated with trying to obtain premarket clearance or approval.
  • If we are unable to compete successfully, we may be unable to increase or sustain our revenue or achieve profitability.
  • The loss of members of our senior management team or our inability to attract and retain key personnel could adversely affect our business.
  • Billing for our diagnostic tests is complex, and we must dedicate substantial time and resources to the billing process to be paid.
  • We rely on a third-party provider to transmit claims to payers, and any delay in transmitting claims could have an adverse effect on our revenue.
  • If our internal sales force is less successful than anticipated, our business expansion plans could suffer and our ability to generate revenues could be diminished. In addition, we have limited history selling our molecular diagnostics tests on a direct basis and our limited history makes forecasting difficult.
  • Developing new products involves a lengthy and complex process, and we may not be able to commercialize on a timely basis, or at all, other products we are developing.
  • If we cannot enter into new clinical study collaborations, our product development and subsequent commercialization could be delayed.
  • If we are unable to develop products to keep pace with rapid technological, medical and scientific change, our operating results and competitive position could be harmed.
  • We may acquire businesses or assets, form joint ventures or make investments in other companies or technologies that could harm our operating results, dilute our stockholders’ ownership, increase our debt or cause us to incur significant expense.
  • Our Loan and Security Agreement provides our lenders with a first-priority lien against substantially all of our assets, excluding our intellectual property, and contains financial covenants and other restrictions on our actions, which could limit our operational flexibility and otherwise adversely affect our financial condition.
  • Complying with numerous statutes and regulations pertaining to our business is an expensive and time-consuming process, and any failure to comply could result in substantial penalties.
  • If we use hazardous materials in a manner that causes contamination or injury, we could be liable for resulting damages.
  • If we are sued for product liability or errors and omissions liability, we could face substantial liabilities that exceed our resources.
  • If a catastrophe strikes either of our laboratories or if either of our laboratories becomes inoperable for any other reason, we will be unable to perform our testing services and our business will be harmed.
  • Our inability to raise additional capital on acceptable terms in the future may limit our ability to develop and commercialize new solutions and technologies and expand our operations.
  • Security breaches, loss of data and other disruptions to us or our third-party service providers could compromise sensitive information related to our business or prevent us from accessing critical information and expose us to liability, which could adversely affect our business and our reputation.
  • If we cannot license rights to use technologies on reasonable terms, we may not be able to commercialize new products in the future.
  • If we are unable to protect our intellectual property effectively, our business would be harmed.
  • We may be involved in litigation related to intellectual property, which could be time-intensive and costly and may adversely affect our business, operating results or financial condition.
  • Our ability to use our net operating loss carryforwards may be limited and may result in increased future tax liability to us.
  • If our goodwill or intangible assets become impaired, we may be required to record a significant charge to earnings.
  • We will continue to incur increased costs and demands on management as a result of compliance with laws and regulations applicable to public companies, which could harm our operating results.
  • If we are unable to implement and maintain effective internal control over financial reporting, investors may lose confidence in the accuracy and completeness of our reported financial information and the market price of our common stock may be negatively affected.
  • We are a smaller reporting company and may elect to comply with reduced public company reporting requirements applicable to smaller reporting companies, which could make our common stock less attractive to investors.
  • Our stock price may be volatile, and you may not be able to sell shares of our common stock at or above the price you paid.
  • If securities or industry analysts issue an adverse opinion regarding our stock or do not publish research or reports about our company, our stock price and trading volume could decline.
  • Anti-takeover provisions in our charter documents and under Delaware law could discourage, delay or prevent a change in control and may affect the trading price of our common stock.
  • We have never paid dividends on our capital stock, and we do not anticipate paying dividends in the foreseeable future.
