NEW YORK – Bionano Genomics said on Thursday that it is expecting as much as 33 percent year-over-year growth in fourth quarter revenues.

For the three-month period ended Dec. 31, Bionano reported preliminary revenues between $8.1 million and $8.4 million, a 29 percent to 33 percent increase over $6.3 million in Q4 2021. Analysts, on average, expected the company to report approximately $7.9 million in revenues for the quarter.

For full-year 2022, the San Diego-based optical genome mapping firm anticipates revenues to be in the range of $27.7 million to $28 million, corresponding to a 54 percent to 56 percent increase from $18 million in 2021. The Wall Street consensus estimate of the company’s full-year revenues was around $27.4 million.
