SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Myriad Genetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: MYGN), a leader in genetic testing and precision medicine, today announced financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2021 and provided an update on recent business performance and strategic transformation plans.
“This was another solid quarter for Myriad Genetics as we delivered strong revenue growth and grew earnings ahead of our initial expectations, an important step towards demonstrating our ability to achieve our goal of sustainable long-term growth and profitability,” said Paul J. Diaz, president and CEO. “These results reflect the hard work of our teammates, and their dedication to meeting the needs of our patients and provider partners, as we continue to advance our mission to empower every individual with the genetic answers inside each of us.”
Financial and Operational Highlights:
“These operating results are particularly encouraging in light of the significant amount of organizational change we’ve undertaken, as we execute on our strategic transformation and growth plans and complete the divestitures of RBM, Vectra and myPath,” said Diaz. “We remain focused on elevating our portfolio of leading products to their full potential, as we strengthen our commercial capabilities, improve our customers’ experience, and build a platform to support accelerated growth and innovation. The progress we made this quarter gives us confidence in our ability to execute in our core segments, and accelerate and finance our emerging R&D activities and technological innovations to advance our mission, new products and our business development efforts.”
Business Transformation Updates:
In the second quarter, the company remained focused on executing in its core segments, as it announced and/or closed several divestitures, completed its sales force realignment, and readied for the launch of its new brand and marketing strategy. The company also saw continued positive results from its revenue cycle enhancement investments.
On May 28, 2021, the company completed the sale of the Myriad myPath, LLC laboratory to Castle Biosciences, Inc. for $32.5 million in cash. On July 1, 2021, the company completed the sale of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Myriad RBM, Inc., to Q2 Solutions for $198 million, subject to customary adjustments. On May 3, 2021, the company signed a definitive agreement to sell select operating assets and intellectual property, including the Vectra® test, to Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings for $150 million in cash. The transaction is expected to close by the end of the third quarter. Total revenue from RBM, Vectra and myPath during the quarter was $20.7 million.
The company intends to use the expected total divestiture gross proceeds of approximately $380 million to fund investments in technology, R&D and commercial efforts as well as to strengthen the balance sheet.
On July 30, 2021, the company made a voluntary principal payment of $106.4 million, which paid down the full amount that remained outstanding under its $264 million amended credit facility.

Financial GuidanceGiven the continued unpredictability surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic (and its variant strains) as well as the impact it continues to have on the healthcare environment, customer behavior and the ability to market tests to physicians, the company will not provide financial guidance for the third quarter ending September 30, 2021 or fiscal year 2021. In addition, the third quarter has historically been impacted by summer seasonality and may be impacted by the recent surge of the COVID -19 Delta variant.
