Highlighted by Revenue Growth and Improved Operating Results
HAYWARD, Calif., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Lynx Therapeutics, Inc. (Nasdaq: LYNX, news) today reported an operating loss of $1.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2003, as compared to an operating loss of $4.9 million for the same period in 2002. Lynx's operating loss was $3.1 million in the first quarter of 2003.



Lynx recorded non-cash, non-operating expense of $0.9 million in the second quarter of 2003 and $0.7 million in the comparable 2002 period related to its pro-rata share of the net loss of Axaron Bioscience AG. Lynx's net loss was $2.9 million, or $(0.61) per share, for the quarter ended June 30, 2003, as compared to a net loss of $5.5 million, or $(1.61) per share, for the 2002 period. The loss per share amounts for the 2003 and 2002 periods reflect the effect of the 1-for-7 reverse split of Lynx's common stock completed on January 15, 2003.

"Our operating performance in the second quarter of 2003 improved over the 2002 quarter primarily due to growth in our genomics revenues and our continued aggressive management of our expenses," said Kevin P. Corcoran, Lynx's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our second quarter 2003 revenues of $4.6 million grew by approximately 61% and 40%, respectively, over our revenues of $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2002 and $3.3 million in the first quarter of this year. Our goal remains to build our revenues through increasing the number of Massively Parallel Signature Sequencing, or MPSS™, analyses we perform for our customers. During the second quarter of 2003, we completed more than twice as many MPSS™ analyses than we did in the first quarter of this year."

Mr. Corcoran added, "We are pleased with the productivity of our business development efforts that have resulted in four agreements during the last three months, with Pfizer, IBM and the Institute for Systems Biology, Innovative Dairy Products and the International Livestock Research Institute, and nine agreements since the beginning of 2003 (see "Collaborations and Agreements" below). Additionally, the modification of our collaboration with Takara Bio brought us approximately $3 million of cash in July and provides Takara Bio with a larger installed base of MPSS™ instruments for providing genomics discovery services in its licensed territories. We will continue to receive payments from Takara in connection with the supply of proprietary and other reagents as well as the sale of any additional MPSS™ instruments."

Mr. Corcoran continued, "We ended the second quarter with $3.0 million in cash and $1.2 million in accounts receivable. Additionally, we received a payment of approximately $3 million from Takara Bio in July. While our primary goal is to improve our financial position and fund our operations through payments to us under existing and prospective relationships with customers, collaborators and licensees, we will be considering various other options, which include securing additional equity financing."

Revenues for the second quarter of 2003 were $4.6 million and included technology access and service fees of $4.4 million. Revenues of $2.9 million for the same period in 2002 included technology access and service fees of $2.6 million. Lynx's revenues have historically fluctuated from quarter to quarter and year to year and may continue to fluctuate in future periods due primarily to the nature of its MPSS™ service fees. These fees are impacted principally by the timing and number of biological samples received from customers and collaborators and the timing of Lynx's performance of related analyses on these samples.

Operating costs and expenses were $6.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2003, compared to $7.3 million for the same period in 2002, excluding the restructuring charge of $0.5 million related to workforce reduction in the second quarter of 2002. For the 2003 quarter, the cost of services fees was $1.4 million, compared to $0.4 million for the corresponding period in 2002, and reflects the costs of providing our genomics discovery services. Research and development expenses were $3.2 million for the 2003 quarter, compared to $5.4 million for the corresponding period in 2002. The decrease in research and development expenses in 2003 reflects a decrease in materials consumed in research and development efforts and lower personnel expenses, primarily resulting from the workforce reductions that occurred in the first quarter of 2003 and the second quarter of 2002. General and administrative expenses were $1.9 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2003, compared to $1.4 million for the corresponding period in 2002. The increase in general and administrative expenses in 2003 over the same period in 2002 reflects primarily expenses for outside services in support of our commercial and business development efforts.


   Six Months Ended June 30


For the six months ended June 30, 2003, Lynx had an operating loss of $5.0 million, as compared to an operating loss of $8.8 million for the same period in 2002.

Lynx recorded a non-cash, non-operating expense of $1.7 million in the six months ended June 30, 2003 and $1.5 million in the comparable 2002 period related to its pro-rata share of the net loss of Axaron Bioscience AG. Other income in the six-month period of 2002 included a realized gain of $0.9 million from the sale of shares of common stock of Inex Pharmaceuticals Corporation in the first quarter of 2002.

Lynx's net loss was $6.8 million, or $(1.47) per share, for the six months ended June 30, 2003, as compared to a net loss of $9.2 million, or $(3.44) per share, for the 2002 period. The loss per share amounts for the 2003 and 2002 periods reflect the effect of the 1-for-7 reverse split of Lynx's common stock completed on January 15, 2003.

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2003 were $7.8 million and included technology access and service fees of $7.6 million. Revenues of $7.9 million for the same period in 2002 included technology access and service fees of $5.0 million and other revenues of $2.9 million, including $2.6 million from the sale of certain of Lynx's antisense technology assets.

Operating costs and expenses, excluding the restructuring charge of $0.3 million in 2003 that comprised primarily severance charges for former Lynx employees affected by the workforce reduction in the first quarter of 2003, were $12.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2003, compared to $16.2 million for the same period in 2002, excluding the restructuring charge of $0.5 million that comprised primarily severance charges for former Lynx employees affected by the workforce reduction in that period. For the six-month period in 2003, cost of services fees was $2.1 million, compared to $0.7 million for the corresponding period in 2002, and reflects the costs of providing our genomics discovery services. Research and development expenses were $6.8 million for the 2003 period, compared to $12.3 million for the corresponding period in 2002. The decrease in research and development expenses in 2003 reflects a decrease in materials consumed in research and development efforts and lower personnel expenses, primarily resulting from the workforce reductions that occurred in the first quarter of 2003 and the second quarter of 2002. General and administrative expenses were $3.7 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2003, compared to $3.1 million for the corresponding period in 2002. The increase in general and administrative expenses in 2003 over the same period in 2002 reflects primarily expenses for outside services in support of our commercial and business development efforts.

As of June 30, 2003, Lynx had cash and cash equivalents of $3.0 million, including restricted cash of $1.2 million, and accounts receivable of approximately $1.2 million. Additionally, Lynx received a payment of approximately $3 million from Takara Bio in July 2003 related to an amendment of Lynx's existing collaboration with that company.
