Burning Rock provides an update on 2022 revenue guidance
GUANGZHOU, China, January 18, 2023Burning Rock Biotech Limited (NASDAQ: BNR and LSE: BNR, the Company or Burning Rock), a company focused on the application of next generation sequencing (NGS) technology in the field of precision oncology, today announced that it expects the Companys full-year revenue growth for 2022 to be approximately 10% compared to that of 2021. This represents an upward revision compared with the Companys previous guidance on the full-year revenue growth of 5% as announced on November 15, 2022 in its financial results for the third quarter of 2022.
The upward revision of revenue guidance was primarily driven by a better fourth quarter performance compared to the Companys estimation underlying its previous guidance back in November. The Company currently expects its revenues for the fourth quarter of 2022 to drop single digit compared to the corresponding period in 2021, with revenues from its central-lab and in-hospital segments dropping double digit, due to severe Covid-related disruptions, while revenues from its pharma service segment achieving continued strong growth, growing at triple digit compared to the same period in 2021.
Burning Rock expects to announce its fourth quarter and full year 2022 results in March 2023.
Burning Rock has not completed the preparation of its financial statements for the fourth quarter or full year 2022. The revenue estimate presented in this press release for the fourth quarter of 2022 and full year 2022 are preliminary and unaudited and are thus inherently uncertain and subject to change as the Company completes its financial results for the fourth quarter of 2022. Burning Rock is in the process of completing its customary year-end close and review procedures as of and for the year ended December 31, 2022, and there can be no assurance that final results for this period will not differ from these estimates.
