UPPSALA, Sweden, Jan. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Olink Holding AB (publ) (“Olink” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: OLK), today announced preliminary unaudited revenue for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2022, and additional selected unaudited performance metrics.
Full year 2022 reported revenues are expected to be between $139.4 million and $139.8 million, representing yearly growth of approximately 47% on a reported basis, and 53% on a constant currency basis. Reported revenues for the fourth quarter 2022 are expected to be between $57.5 million and $57.9 million, versus $43.7 million in the corresponding quarter of last year.
Olink anticipates fourth quarter 2022 Kit share of total revenues will be approximately 53%. The Company also expects that year-end Explore externalizations reached an estimated total of 52, achieving roughly $800,000 in average customer pull-through during the 12 months ended December 31, 2022. Olink also expects that Signature Q100 placements reached an estimated total of 91 at year-end 2022.
Olink has scheduled its fourth quarter and full year 2022 earnings call for February 21, 2023, and expects to provide additional details at that time.
“2022 was another year of tremendous progress for Olink, including the strengthening of our leadership position in next-generation proteomics, strong operational execution across new product development and commercialization initiatives, with the introduction of meaningful products and capabilities for customers around the world,” said Jon Heimer, CEO. “We accomplished these impressive results despite multiple macroeconomic headwinds developing through the year; Olink anticipates another strong year of growth in 2023 that would not be possible without the enormous talent and drive of the entire Olink organization.”
In addition, Olink expects 2023 full year reported revenue to be in the range of $192 million to $200 million, representing growth of approximately 37% to 43% on a reported basis, and growth of approximately 38% to 44% on a constant currency basis.
The Company expects revenues in 2023 will continue to progress along a seasonal pattern that is weighted toward the second half of the year, and fourth quarter specifically. In addition, Olink believes with continued growth and scale up, it will return to profitability in 2023, as measured by EBITDA excluding share-based compensation expenses.
