Castle Biosciences Announces Second Quarter 2020 Results

Q2 2020 revenues of $12.7 million, compared to $10.7 million in Q2 2019
DecisionDx-Melanoma test report volume decreased 19% compared to Q2 2019
Gross margin of 83%
Positive operating cash flow

FRIENDSWOOD, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 10, 2020-- Castle Biosciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: CSTL), a skin cancer diagnostics company providing personalized genomic information to improve cancer treatment decisions, today announced its financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2020.

“While our second quarter financial results reflect COVID-19 impacts, thanks to the strong execution by our employees, we continue to successfully navigate these challenging times,” said Derek Maetzold, Castle’s president and chief executive officer. “We have seen a notable improvement in DecisionDx®-Melanoma orders since April’s low, with sequential gains throughout the quarter leading to a year-over-year increase in June and continued year-over-year gains in July. Additionally, we maintained strong gross margins and delivered positive operating cash flow for the quarter.

“With the publication of multiple peer-reviewed articles, we saw significant evidence development, including publication of two systematic reviews and meta-analyses regarding Decision-Dx Melanoma. Evidence development supports both clinician adoption and payor coverage of our commercially available tests, DecisionDx-Melanoma and DecisionDx®-UM, and our pipeline tests. Additionally, as we continue to position ourselves for near- and long-term growth, we are moving forward with our planned commercial team expansion in the second half of 2020.

“We are pleased with the continued progress of our pipeline tests, which importantly allows us to expand our services for patients who are diagnosed with early stage skin cancers. We plan for DecisionDx-SCC, our pipeline test for patients with high-risk cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), to be commercially available at the beginning of September. DecisionDx-SCC is designed to identify a patient’s risk of metastasis, in order to enable more informed, risk-appropriate clinical decisions regarding adjuvant therapy and other management options.

“In addition, our team completed the clinical validation work needed to launch our pipeline test for use in suspicious pigmented lesions, and as previously stated, we expect this test to become commercially available in the second half of 2020. We estimate that combined, our three skin cancer products, DecisionDx-Melanoma, DecisionDx-SCC and our test for suspicious pigmented lesions, will have a total addressable U.S. market of approximately $2.0 billion.”

Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2020, Selected Results

  • Revenue was $12.7 million in the second quarter of 2020, an 18% increase compared to $10.7 million in the second quarter of 2019.
  • Delivered 3,008 DecisionDx-Melanoma test reports in the second quarter of 2020, which represents a 19% decrease compared to the 3,691 reports delivered in the second quarter of 2019. The Company believes this decrease is the result of fewer patient visits to physicians during the quarter due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • The number of new ordering clinicians (first time ordering a test) for DecisionDx-Melanoma decreased by 43% in the second quarter, compared to the same period in 2019; however, the Company did convert new clinicians during the quarter. The Company believes this decrease is the result of physician office closures and limited physician access during the quarter due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Delivered 306 DecisionDx-UM test reports in the second quarter of 2020, compared to 376 reports in the second quarter of 2019. The Company believes this decrease is the result of fewer patient visits to physicians during the quarter due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Gross margin in the second quarter of 2020 was 83.1%.
  • Operating cash flow was $13.5 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2019. 
  • Adjusted operating cash flow, excluding the effects of certain relief payments described below,was $3.3 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2019.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2020, Selected Results

  • Revenues were $30.1 million, a 55% increase compared to $19.5 million during the same period in 2019.
  • Delivered 7,582 DecisionDx-Melanoma test reports, an increase of 10% over the same period in 2019.
  • Delivered 667 DecisionDx-UM test reports, a decrease of 9% over the same period in 2019.
  • The number of new ordering clinicians for DecisionDx-Melanoma decreased by 6%, compared to the same period in 2019.
  • Gross margin was 84.9%.
  • Operating cash flow was $13.3 million, compared to $1.8 million for the same period in 2019.
  • Adjusted operating cash flow, excluding the effects of certain relief payments described below, was $3.0 million, compared to $1.8 million for the same period in 2019.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

As of June 30, 2020, the Company’s cash and cash equivalents totaled $179.8 million, which includes net proceeds of approximately $69.5 million from the Company’s June 2020 public offering of 2,000,000 shares of common stock. On July 2, 2020, the Company announced that the underwriters of the public offering exercised in full their option to purchase an additional 300,000 shares of common stock. The additional net proceeds were approximately $10.4 million.

As of June 30, 2020, the outstanding principal balance on the Company’s bank term loan was $25.9 million.

COVID-19 Update

Since the beginning of the pandemic to date, the Company has maintained uninterrupted access to its proprietary DecisionDx-Melanoma test and DecisionDx-UM test and has maintained normal turnaround times for delivery of test reports. Based upon an analysis of the Company’s supply channel and current inventory levels, the Company believes it has adequate access to reagents and consumables needed for testing patient samples and expects to continue providing normal turnaround times for delivery of test reports.

In the second quarter of 2020, the number of DecisionDx-Melanoma test reports the Company delivered decreased by 19%, compared to the same quarter of 2019. Additionally, COVID-19 negatively impacted clinician orders of the Company’s DecisionDx-Melanoma test, which the Company believes is linked to delays and/or cancellations in patient visits, resulting in reduced diagnostic biopsies and thus reduced diagnoses of cutaneous melanoma. The largest impact was seen in April, improving sequentially throughout the remainder of the quarter. Specifically:

  • In April, DecisionDx-Melanoma orders decreased 45% year-over-year;
  • In May, DecisionDx-Melanoma orders decreased 39% year-over-year; and
  • In June, DecisionDx-Melanoma orders increased 10% year-over-year.

The year-over-year increase of monthly DecisionDx-Melanoma orders continued in July 2020. In light of COVID-19, the Company believes this order data provides additional insight into current demand trends when considered in conjunction with test report volumes. However, orders received in a particular period do not necessarily correspond with actual delivered test reports or reported revenues for the same period or subsequent periods.

In the second quarter of 2020, COVID-19 negatively impacted the Company’s year-over-year number of new ordering clinicians for DecisionDx-Melanoma. The largest impact was seen in April, improving sequentially throughout the remainder of the quarter. The improvement, over April figures, of the Company’s year-over-year number of new ordering clinicians for DecisionDx-Melanoma continued in July 2020.

The Company believes the improvement observed in DecisionDx-Melanoma test orders since April is driven in part by the reopening of dermatology practices and rescheduled patient visits, which have generally coincided with the easing of state and local government restrictions.

The COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on the Company’s future test report volumes, operating results, cash flows, results of operations and/or financial condition, among other things, will be primarily driven by such variables as the pandemic's severity, duration and the impact of state and local government restrictions on the U.S. healthcare system, which the Company is unable to predict or control.

Supplemental Revenue Information

Included in revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, were positive revenue adjustments related to tests delivered in prior periods of $2.3 million. This compares to positive adjustments of $3.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019. For the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, these amounts totaled $1.0 million and $2.8 million, respectively. The positive revenue adjustments include the recognition of revenue for certain tests delivered in prior periods for which no revenue was recognizable originally but was recognized upon cash collection of payments for the tests in the applicable periods.

Second Quarter Business and Clinical Evidence Highlights

  • Data from a systematic review and meta-analysis of the DecisionDx-Melanoma test was published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology (JAAD). Under multi-variate analysis, the DecisionDx-Melanoma test was shown to be independent from other clinical factors (age, Breslow tumor thickness, ulceration and node status) and improve upon risk assessment performed with staging factors alone. Under the Strength of Recommendation Taxonomy (SORT) system, a systematic review and meta-analysis provides for the highest level of evidence for a prognostic biomarker (Level 1 evidence). The SORT system is used by the American Academy of Dermatology and other organizations to evaluate the quality, quantity and consistency of evidence supporting tests, such as DecisionDx-Melanoma. For details, see the Company’s news release from April 1, 2020.
  • The development and validation data of DecisionDx-SCC for patients diagnosed with high-risk cutaneous SCC was recently published in JAAD. The results demonstrate that DecisionDx-SCC is the strongest, as well as an independent, predictor of metastatic risk relative to current SCC staging systems and can complement clinicopathologic risk factors to better stratify risk of metastasis in patients with high-risk SCC. For details, see the Company’s news release from April 29, 2020.
  • Study data supporting a framework for integration of DecisionDx-SCC into risk-appropriate management of 300 high-risk cutaneous SCC patients (as defined by National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN)), were recently published in Current Medical Research & Opinion (CMRO) and found combining DecisionDx-SCC class with American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) T stage identified a group of 159 low-risk patients (Class 1, T1-T2) with a 7.5% rate of metastasis. Similarly, combining test results with Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) staging identified 173 patients with a metastasis rate of 8.1%. By comparison, Class 2B patients in the study had rates of metastasis surpassing 50%, regardless of the staging system with which it was combined, a rate that may warrant a high intensity plan within NCCN management recommendations. With the incorporation of DecisionDx-SCC results with T stage for these 300 patients with NCCN high-risk features, more than 50% would have been recommended a low intensity management plan, while 34-39% would be recommended for a moderate intensity plan, and only 8% for a high intensity plan. For details, see the Company’s news release from May 5, 2020.
  • Results from an intended use survey involving 162 clinicians were also published in CMRO. Using the established pre-test post-test vignette methodology, clinicians determined the treatment plan they would employ for patients with high-risk SCC. Clinicians were then asked to determine the treatment plan with the addition of DecisionDx-SCC test results. Adding a DecisionDx-SCC low-risk Class 1 result to clinicopathologic information led to an overall reduction in treatment plan modality intensity by more than 60% when compared to clinicopathological features alone. Adding a Decision-SCC Class 2B test result to clinicopathologic information led to an overall escalation in treatment plan modality intensity by more than 90% when compared to clinicopathological features alone. Importantly, more than 95% of the changes were made in a risk appropriate manner within established NCCN-guidelines for patient management. For more details, see the Company’s news release from May 19, 2020.

Recent Business and Clinical Evidence Updates

  • The Company recently received approval from the New York State Department of Health for its DecisionDx®-UMSeq 7-gene test that uses next-generation sequencing to identify somatic mutations relevant to uveal melanoma. The receipt of this approval allows patients in that state to benefit from the DecisionDx-UMSeq test. The Company previously received its New York State Clinical Laboratory permit in June 2018 and has current approval for all of its commercially available molecular diagnostic tests. The Company’s laboratory is accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) and is certified under the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA).
  • A second and independent, systematic review and meta-analysis was published recently in SKIN: The Journal of Cutaneous Medicine, demonstrating DecisionDx-Melanoma as an independent predictor of recurrence, distant metastasis and overall survival in cutaneous melanoma. Under multi-variate analysis, the DecisionDx-Melanoma test was shown to be independent from other clinical factors (age, Breslow tumor thickness, ulceration and node status) and improve upon risk assessment performed with staging factors alone. As noted above, a systematic review and meta-analysis represents the highest level of evidence for prognostic risk of metastasis tests, such as DecisionDx-Melanoma. For more details, see the Company’s news release from July 9, 2020.
  • Data from a multicenter, prospective study demonstrating that DecisionDx-UM test results significantly impacted treatment plan recommendations for patients with uveal melanoma (UM) were recently published in the peer-reviewed journal Ocular Oncology and Pathology. The results of this study support that DecisionDx-UM is used to appropriately guide metastatic surveillance in UM patients. DecisionDx-UM high-risk Class 2 patients were managed more intensely, in accordance with an observed metastatic rate of greater than 50%, while low-risk Class 1 patients were managed with low-intensity surveillance, resulting in appropriate utilization of healthcare resources. For more details, see the Company’s news release from July 15, 2020.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures (UNAUDITED)

In this release, we use the metric of Adjusted Operating Cash Flow, which is a non-GAAP financial measure and is not calculated in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (GAAP). This non-GAAP financial measure reflects adjustments to net cash provided by operating activities to remove the effects of two payments we received associated with government aid to healthcare providers due to COVID-19, which we believe are not indicative of our ongoing operations.

We use Adjusted Operating Cash Flow internally because we believe this metric provides useful supplemental information in assessing our cash flow performance from our core ongoing business activities by removing the effects of these items on our operating cash flows. We believe this metric is also useful to investors as a supplement to GAAP measures in analyzing the performance of our business. However, this non-GAAP financial measure may be different from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, even when the same or similarly titled terms are used to identify such measures, limiting their usefulness for comparative purposes. This non-GAAP financial measure is not meant to be a substitute for net cash provided by operating activities reported in accordance with GAAP and should be considered in conjunction with our financial information presented on GAAP basis. Accordingly, investors should not place undue reliance on non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliations of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure are presented in the table at the end of this press release.

In April 2020, we received an advance payment of $8.3 million from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Service (CMS), which will be applied against future Medicare claims that we submit for reimbursement later in 2020. We recorded the receipt of the payment as a liability on our balance sheet and, in accordance with GAAP, it is included in net cash provided by operating activities in the period received. We have excluded receipt of the advance payment from adjusted operating cash flow, but as future claims are submitted for reimbursement and applied against this balance, we will include the advance payment in adjusted operating cash flow to the extent that Medicare claims submitted for reimbursement have been applied to the balance.

In April 2020, we received a one-time payment of $1.9 million in relief funds automatically allocated to Medicare providers under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
