Fourth Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenue was $4.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2023, a 3.6% decrease from $4.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2022. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in lease revenue related to SP100 instruments, partially offset by an increase in service revenue. Product revenue for the fourth quarter of 2023 was $3.0 million, including $366 thousand of related party revenue, and consisted of sales of SP100 instruments and consumable kits. Service revenue was $1.1 million, including $201 thousand of related party revenue, and primarily consisted of revenue related to the Seer Technology Access Center, and grant and other revenue was $258 thousand. 

Gross profit, inclusive of grant and other revenue, was $2.0 million and gross margin was 45.1% for the fourth quarter of 2023.

Operating expenses were $24.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, including $7.6 million of stock-based compensation, a decrease of 11% as compared to $27.2 million, including $8.2 million of stock-based compensation, for the corresponding prior year period. The decrease in expenses was primarily driven by a decrease in product development costs related to the Proteograph Product Suite, including employee compensation and other related expenses.

Net loss was $17.8 million for the fourth quarter of 2023, as compared to $22.5 million for the corresponding prior year period.

Full Year 2023 Financial Results

Revenue was $16.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2023, an 8% increase from $15.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2022.

Service revenue was $2.3 million, including $241 thousand of related party revenue, and grant and other revenue was $1.5 million.

Operating expenses were $112.0 million for the full year 2023, including $34.4 million of stock-based compensation, as compared to $104.3 million, including $33.7 million of stock-based compensation, for the corresponding prior year period.

Net loss was $86.3 million for the full year 2023, as compared to $93.0 million for the corresponding prior year period.

Cash, cash equivalents and investments were $373.1 million as of December 31, 2023.
