Cryoport Reports First Quarter 2022 Results
NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Cryoport, Inc. (NASDAQ: CYRX) ("Cryoport" or the "Company"), a global leader in temperature-controlled supply chain solutions for the life sciences industry, today announced financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2022.
Jerrell Shelton, CEO of Cryoport, commented, "Overall, our businesses performed well in the first quarter although revenue was adversely impacted by approximately $9.4 million from the previously disclosed fire at our New Prague, MN manufacturing plant. We believe the impact was isolated to the first quarter of 2022 and we intend to recapture the revenue throughout the remainder of 2022. Production at the New Prague manufacturing operation has returned to full capacity and the demand for cryogenic equipment and systems continues to be very strong. Consequently, we will be expanding our overall manufacturing capacities to meet the demand for our market-leading products and systems.
"Our teams continue to execute at a very high level. Biopharma/Pharma revenue was $43.0 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $42.4 million for the first quarter of 2021. Revenue from commercial therapies for the quarter grew 53.5% to a record $3.9 million and we grew our overall pipeline of business. We now support a record 609 clinical trials in regenerative medicine, with 277 of those trials in Phase 2 and 81 trials in the pivotal Phase 3. Overall, revenue growth in the Biopharma/Pharma market was driven by our support of global clinical trials and commercially launched therapies as well as our supply chain and biostorage services. Revenue in this market was adversely impacted by approximately $6.7 million from the fire at our New Prague manufacturing plant.
"Animal Health demand, which is primarily driven by protein production, was strong for both products and services. However, revenue decreased 24% to $6.8 million for the first quarter of 2022 due to the aforementioned fire at our New Prague manufacturing plant which was adversely impacted by approximately $2.4 million.
"We continued to grow in the Reproductive Medicine market as IVF technologies continue to become more commonly available. As a result, our revenue increased by 32% to $2.5 million for the first quarter of 2022. CryoStork® logistics solutions and cryogenic shipper products drove this strong demand; however, this market was also adversely impacted by the fire at our New Prague manufacturing plant by approximately $0.3 million.
"We closed the first quarter with approximately $600 million in cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments, strengthened our position in the high growth APAC and EMEA regions through the acquisition of Cell&Co BioServices in France, and continue to rapidly expand our footprint and services with the grand openings of the first two of our new Global Supply Chain Centers next month, which is the beginning of our new Global Supply Chain Center Network, to include comprehensive Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) Bioservices."
Mr. Shelton concluded, "We believe our long-term growth prospects for Cryoport are excellent as we continue to build out a premier comprehensive supply chain company serving the life sciences industry. Our outlook for the remainder of the year is solid. We expect full year revenue for 2022 to be between $260 to $265 million, representing a 17% to 19% increase over 2021 revenue."
In tabular form, revenue by market for the three months ended March 31, 2022, as compared to the same period in 2021 was as follows:
Total Biopharma/Pharma revenue increased by $0.6 million, or 1%, to $43.0 million for the first quarter of 2022 compared to $42.4 million for the first quarter of 2021, driven by strong revenue growth from our support of commercial therapies of 53.5%, however partially offset by the adverse impact of the New Prague fire of approximately $6.7 million.
As of March 31, 2022, the Company supported nine (9) commercial therapies and a net total of 609 clinical trials, a net increase of 66 clinical trials over first quarter 2021 and an increase of seven (7) clinical trials from year-end 2021. Enveloped in these trials are revolutionary advances in developing new therapies; for example, the positive findings for engineered natural killer cells. The number of trials in Phase 3 we support grew to 81 as of the end of the first quarter further signaling the maturing of our pipeline of clinical trials. The number of trials by phase and region are as follows:
During the first quarter of 2022, Gilead's Yescarta® was approved by the FDA as a second line treatment for relapsed/refractory large B-cell lymphoma, Bristol Myers' Breyanzi® received approval in the EU for the third line treatment of relapsed/refractory large B-cell lymphoma, and Legend/Janssen received approval for Carvykti™ in the EU for a fifth line treatment of multiple myeloma. A total of two (2) Cryoport supported Biologic License Applications (BLAs) or Marketing Authorization Applications (MAAs) were filed in first quarter 2022. During the remainder of 2022, we anticipate up to an additional 15 filings, three (3) new therapy approvals, and an additional seven (7) label or geographic expansion approvals. Also, we are now forecasting a combined total of 20 BLA or MAA filings in 2023, up from our previous estimate of 12.
Note: All reconciliations of GAAP to adjusted (non-GAAP) figures above are detailed in the reconciliation tables included later in the press release.
The Company is providing full year 2022 revenue guidance of $260 - $265 million which represents an increase of approximately 17% to 19% over 2021 revenue. The company expects that revenue will primarily be driven by the record backlog for cryogenic freezer and shipper systems and solutions, growth from our support of clinical trials and commercially launched therapies from our cell the gene therapy clients, growth in temperature-controlled logistics and transport and the expanded client utilization of our new and expanding biostorage services.
The Company's guidance is dependent on its current business and expectations, which may be impacted by, among other things, factors that our outside of our control, such as the ongoing and prolonged COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain constraints and inflationary pressures, as well as the other factors described in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), including its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021 and in its subsequent filings with the SEC.

Note Regarding Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
This news release contains adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure as defined in Regulation G of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net loss adjusted for interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization expense, stock-based compensation expense, acquisition and integration costs, investment income, unrealized loss on investments and charges or gains resulting from non-recurring events.
This non-GAAP financial measure is not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), is not based on any comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles and may be different from non-GAAP financial measures presented by other companies. Non-GAAP financial measures, including adjusted EBITDA, should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
In evaluating Cryoport's performance, management uses non-GAAP financial measures to supplement financial statements prepared under GAAP. Management believes adjusted EBITDA provides a useful measure of Cryoport's operating results, a meaningful comparison with historical results and with the results of other companies, and insight into Cryoport's ongoing operating performance. Further, management and the Board of Directors utilize adjusted EBITDA to gain a better understanding of Cryoport's comparative operating performance from period-to-period and as a basis for planning and forecasting future periods. Management believes adjusted EBITDA, when read in conjunction with Cryoport's GAAP financials, is useful to investors because it provides a basis for meaningful period-to-period comparisons of Cryoport's ongoing operating results, including results of operations, against investor and analyst financial models, identifying trends in Cryoport's underlying business and performing related trend analyses, and it provides a better understanding of how management plans and measures Cryoport's underlying business.
