Olink announces preliminary unaudited revenue for the fourth quarter and full year 2021
UPPSALA, Sweden, January 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Olink Holding AB (publ) (“Olink”) (Nasdaq: OLK) today announced preliminary unaudited revenue for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2021, and additional select unaudited performance metrics.
Revenues for the fourth quarter 2021 are expected to be between $43.2 million and $43.7 million, versus $27.2 million in the corresponding quarter of last year. Full year 2021 revenues are expected to be between $94.5 million and $95.0 million, an increase of approximately 75% compared to the year ended December 31, 2020. In addition, Olink anticipates fourth quarter 2021 Kit share of total revenues will be roughly 35%, versus 18% reported during the third quarter of 2021. The Company also expects year-end Explore externalizations to reach a total of 25, consistent with its overall plan for 2021.
Olink intends to provide guidance for the full year 2022 when it reports fourth quarter and full year 2021 earnings on February 14, 2022.
“2021 was a transformational year for Olink, including our successful IPO, strong execution of the next phase of our corporate plan, and the achievement of numerous milestones,” said Jon Heimer, CEO. “This tremendous progress, and our strong competitive position, would not have been possible without the talent and determination of the entire Olink team.”
