OTHER INFORMATION
On April 26, 2022, QIAGEN N.V. (NYSE: QGEN; Frankfurt, Prime Standard: QIA) issued a press release announcing its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022. The press release is furnished herewith as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
QIAGEN has regularly reported adjusted results, which are considered non-GAAP financial measures, to give additional insight into our financial performance as a supplement to understand, manage, and evaluate our business results and make operating decisions. We also use the adjusted results when comparing to our historical operating results, which have consistently been presented on an adjusted basis.
Adjusted results should be considered in addition to the reported results prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, but should not be considered as a substitute. Reconciliations of reported results to adjusted results are included in the tables accompanying the press release. We believe certain items should be excluded from adjusted results when they are outside of our ongoing core operations, vary significantly from period to period, or affect the comparability of results with the Company’s competitors and our own prior periods.
The non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are non-GAAP net sales, gross profit, operating income, pre-tax income, net income, tax rate and diluted earnings per share. These adjusted results exclude costs related to business integration, acquisition and restructuring related items, long-lived asset impairments, amortization of acquired intangible assets, non-cash interest expense charges as well as other special income and expense items. Management views these costs as not indicative of the profitability or cash flows of our ongoing or future operations and therefore considers the adjusted results as a supplement, and to be viewed in conjunction with, the reported GAAP results.
We use a measure of free cash flow to estimate the cash flow remaining after purchases of property, plant and equipment as required to maintain or expand our business. This measure provides us with supplemental information to assess our liquidity needs. We calculate free cash flow as net cash from operating activities less purchases of property, plant and equipment.
We also consider results on a constant currency basis. Our functional currency is the U.S. dollar and our subsidiaries’ functional currencies are the local currency of the respective countries in which they are headquartered. A significant portion of our revenues and expenses is denominated in euros and currencies other than the United States dollar. Management believes that analysis of constant currency period-over-period changes is useful because changes in exchange rates can affect the growth rate of net sales and expenses, potentially to a significant degree. Constant currency figures are calculated by translating the local currency actual results in the current period using the average exchange rates from the previous year’s respective period instead of the current period.
We use non-GAAP and constant currency financial measures internally in our planning, forecasting and reporting, as well as to measure and compensate our employees. We do not reconcile forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding GAAP measures due to the high variability and difficulty in making accurate forecasts and projections that are impacted by future decisions and actions. Accordingly, reconciliations of these forward-looking non-GAAP financial measures to the corresponding GAAP measures are not available without unreasonable effort. However, the actual amounts of these excluded items will have a significant impact on QIAGEN’s GAAP results.

QIAGEN exceeds outlook for Q1 2022, delivers strong 14% CER sales growth from non-COVID products and increases full-year outlook

Q1 2022: Net sales rise 11% (+15% constant exchange rates, or CER) to $628.4 million vs. outlook for at least 7% CER growth; diluted EPS of $0.67 and adjusted diluted EPS of $0.80 ($0.83 CER) vs. outlook for at least $0.72 CER

14% CER rise in non-COVID sales, while COVID-19 sales grow 18% CER

Operating cash flow rises 61% to $207 million, free cash flow increases 116% to $178 million

2022 net sales outlook raised to at least $2.12 billion CER, reaffirmed double-digit CER growth in non-COVID products; adj. diluted EPS outlook raised to at least $2.14 CER

Venlo, the Netherlands, April 26, 2022 - QIAGEN N.V. (NYSE: QGEN; Frankfurt Prime Standard: QIA) announced results for the first quarter of 2022 and increased the outlook for full-year 2022.

Net sales for Q1 2022 rose 11% (+15% CER) from Q1 2021 to $628.4 million, ahead of the outlook for at least 7% CER growth. Sales were driven by 14% CER growth in the non-COVID-19 product portfolio and an 18% CER rise in sales of products used for COVID-19 testing and surveillance. Adjusted diluted earnings per share (EPS) rose to $0.80 ($0.83 CER) from $0.66 in Q1 2021, and above the outlook for at least $0.72 CER.

Based on the strong start to the year, QIAGEN has increased its full-year 2022 net sales outlook to at least $2.120 billion CER and for adjusted diluted EPS of at least $2.14 CER.

The updated outlook reflects a reaffirmation of the previous goal for double-digit CER sales growth from the non-COVID product groups, but for a significant year-on-year decline in COVID-19 product group sales based on the expected volatile pandemic trends in 2022. Also taken into consideration was an updated assessment of current inflation and macro-economic trends. This included the adverse impact of anticipated lost sales in 2022 from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus as a result of the war in Ukraine. These countries represented approximately 1% of total QIAGEN sales in 2021. QIAGEN continues to make ongoing investments into its portfolio, in particular the five pillars of growth, for new products, test menu and applications. This outlook does not take into consideration any future acquisitions.

"QIAGEN is off to a strong start in 2022, led by the solid performance of our non-COVID product portfolio in the first quarter driven by a focus on execution against our goals. These results have also reaffirmed our confidence in double-digit CER sales growth for 2022 from these products, which form the basis for our mid-term growth ambitions," said Thierry Bernard, Chief Executive Officer of QIAGEN N.V. "This performance in the first quarter has set a solid stage for continued execution in an increasingly volatile environment while our proactive initiatives have helped to build resilience into our business."

"Our teams of empowered QIAGENers are focused on delivering on our promises for future growth. We continue to execute, quarter after quarter, from sales goals to project development. We continue to develop a well-balanced portfolio between Life Science and Molecular Diagnostics customers, across our different regions, and also between our five pillars of growth and our core business." Bernard said.

Roland Sackers, Chief Financial Officer of QIAGEN N.V., said: “Our results for the first quarter of 2022 show the power of QIAGEN with strong sales growth, improved profitability and operating cash flow over the same period in 2021. We are confident that investments into our portfolio are creating value and positioning QIAGEN toward new growth waves in the coming years. We continue to review opportunities for capital deployment, including bolt-on acquisitions, that are aligned with our strategy and set to create greater value for shareholders and our other stakeholders.”

Sales: Consumables and related revenues rose 17% CER on broad gains across the portfolio and led by 41% CER growth to $78 million of sales for the QuantiFERON-TB test for tuberculosis detection. Instrument sales rose 2% CER against very strong results in the year-ago period, and were supported by strong quarterly placements of the QIAstat-Dx system for syndromic testing, the NeuMoDx system for integrated clinical PCR testing and the QIAcuity digital PCR platforms. Non-COVID product group sales rose 14% CER to $400 million, while COVID product group sales were up 18% CER to $229 million and supported by strong demand in Europe during the first weeks of Q1 2022. Among the customer classes, sales for non-COVID product groups rose in Molecular

Diagnostics at a strong double-digit CER rate, while sales to Life Science customers for non-COVID product groups rose at a low-single-digit CER rate. Adverse currency movements against the U.S. dollar in Q1 2022 reduced sales growth at actual rates by about four percentage points.

Operating income: Q1 2022 operating income rose 26% to $207 million (33.0% of sales) from $164 million (28.9% of sales) in the year-ago period. Adjusted operating income also advanced much faster than sales, rising 19% to $232 million (36.9% of sales) from $195 million (34.3% of sales) in the year-ago period. For Q1 2022, the adjusted gross margin was 68.6%, a decline of 0.1 percentage points from Q1 2021, and absorbed expenses for expanded production capacity. Margin gains over Q1 2021 came from lower operating expenses as a percentage of sales compared to the year-ago period. R&D and Sales & Marketing expenses both provided about one percentage point of incremental benefits, while General & Administrative expenses provided margin gains while absorbing higher expenses for IT and cybersecurity initiatives.

EPS: Diluted EPS was $0.67 per share in Q1 2022, up 20% from $0.56 in Q1 2021. Adjusted diluted EPS of $0.80 ($0.83 CER) rose 21% from $0.66 in the year-ago period.

Tables may have rounding differences. Percentage changes are to prior-year periods.

Sample technologies: Sales grew 22% CER in Q1 2022, driven by very strong demand for the QIAprep&amp solution for COVID-19 testing, particularly in Europe. Sample technologies for non-COVID applications declined at a low-single-digit CER rate against very strong demand in Q1 2021, which included tailwinds from order backlogs. Instrument sales rose at a low-single-digit CER rate, supported by strong placements of the recently launched EZ2 Connect instrument.

Diagnostic solutions: Strong sales gains for QuantiFERON-TB and QIAstat-Dx, along with higher revenues from companion diagnostic co-development projects, supported 21% CER sales growth in Q1 2022, driven by consumables rising at solid double-digit CER rates. QuantiFERON-TB sales benefited from all regions growing above 34% CER, led by Asia-Pacific / Japan. QIAstat-Dx reached a record level of quarterly instrument placements along with robust double-digit CER gains in sales. NeuMoDx sales were adversely impacted by COVID-19 consumables testing trends, but in line with the full-year outlook. Revenues from companion diagnostic co-development projects were up 26% CER to $9 million on continued resumption of clinical projects, while sales of Precision Medicine companion diagnostics were largely unchanged over Q1 2021.

PCR / Nucleic acid amplification: Sales growth of 1% CER for Q1 2022 was hampered by a high-single-digit CER decline in sales of products used in COVID-19 testing, while non-COVID product group sales rose at a double-digit CER rate. QIAcuity digital PCR system sales rose well above the level of Q1 2021, supported by ongoing strong placement trends. Sales from OEM business absorbed weaker trends for third-party product sales affected by lower COVID-19 testing demand.
Genomics / NGS: Key drivers for the 16% CER growth in Q1 2022 were the bioinformatics business QIAGEN Digital Insights, with sales rising above 10% CER over the year-ago period, and double-digit CER growth in functional genomics consumables and universal next-generation sequencing (NGS) consumables amid further improvements in demand trends for research and clinical applications.

Free cash flow 178 82 116%
Net cash (used in) provided by investing activities (306) 106 -389%
Net cash used in financing activities (11) (41) -74%

Net cash from operating activities rose significantly in Q1 2022 over the prior-year period driven by the strong business expansion that led to higher net income, and also supported by disciplined working capital. Free cash flow also benefited from lower purchases of property, plant and equipment in Q1 2022 than in Q1 2021, which included significant investments to expand production capacity. As of March 31, 2022, cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments totaled $1.2 billion compared to $1.1 billion on December 31, 2021.

Net cash used in investing activities in Q1 2022 totaling $306 million reflected strong capital discipline through an increase in short-term investments compared to cash provided by investing activities of $106 million in Q1 2021, which included the liquidation of short-term investments.

Net cash used in financing activities declined in Q1 2022 over the year-ago period, which included the repayment of long-term debt.


QIAGEN Sample to Insight portfolio updates

Among recent developments in QIAGEN's Sample to Insight portfolio of differentiated molecular solutions for use in the Life Sciences and Molecular Diagnostics:

Sample technologies

The recent launch of the EZ2 Connect instrument has been well received in the first few months since the start of commercialization. QIAGEN received a Red Dot Design Award for this instrument’s design quality and innovation as an easy-to-use, fully automated sample preparation system. All relevant sample types can be processed on this instrument following the launch of the EZ2 RNA/miRNA Tissue/Cells Kit in February 2022. Additionally, EZ2 Connect is now being combined with QIAcuity to streamline biomarker profiling from liquid biopsies and FFPE (Formalin Fixed Parafin Embedded) tissue samples, enabling quantification including for rare mutations.

Diagnostic solutions

The QuantiFERON TB Gold Plus test for tuberculosis detection reached a milestone in early 2022 with use in more than 100 million people since its launch, reaffirming its status as the gold standard in the fight against this contagious and often deadly bacterial disease.

The launch of the QIAstat-Dx Rise syndromic testing solution remains on track for mid-2022. This higher-throughput version of QIAstat-Dx has random access capacity for up to 18 different tests for processing at the same time, and includes a new level of walk-away efficiency. Additionally, QIAGEN expects a U.S. regulatory decision on the QIAstat-Dx Gastrointestinal (GI) panel, designed to detect 22 common viral, bacterial and parasitic pathogens, in late 2022. The European launch of the QIAstat-Dx Meningitis / Encephalitis panel is also gaining momentum, particularly in the Nordic region, after this panel received CE-IVD marking in early 2022.

PCR and nucleic acid amplification

QIAGEN has completed the U.S. federal contract to equip local public health authorities with the QIAcuity dPCR system for COVID-19 surveillance, with 70% of all U.S. states now using QIAcuity for ultra-sensitive wastewater detection of SARS-CoV-2 infections. The QIAcuity portfolio was also recently expanded with the launch of new dPCR Microbial DNA Detection Assays that leverage the use of QIAcuity for microbial analysis.

Genomics

QIAGEN and Element Biosciences Partners, a privately-held company that has launched a new DNA sequencing platform, entered into a collaboration to validate QIAGEN’s Universal NGS library prep and target enrichment portfolio on the Element AVITI system. This workflow includes sample preparation combined with custom-made assays that are integrated with solutions from QIAGEN Digital Insights, QIAGEN's bioinformatics business.
10



QIAGEN Digital Insights and NHS England announced a new two-year licensing agreement to support the 100,000 Genomes Project. QIAGEN’s HGMD Online Professional, a human-certified curated resource for finding disease-causing genetic variants, will be used to support scientists and clinicians at NHS Laboratory Hubs.

QIAGEN ESG update

Fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce is central to QIAGEN’s commitment to achieving best-in-class standards involving Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) initiatives. QIAGEN became one of 418 companies worldwide to be named in Bloomberg’s 2022 Gender Equality Index. QIAGEN has increased the proportion of women in leadership roles to 34% in 2021 from 28% in 2018. Additionally, QIAGEN’s U.S. subsidiary was recently named a “Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ Equality” after earning a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2022 Corporate Equality Index (CEI).

Change in the Executive Committee

Antonio M. Santos was appointed in April 2022 as Senior Vice President, Head of Global Operations and a member of the Executive Committee, following the retirement of Dr. Barthold Piening, who had served in this role since 2018. Mr. Santos has more than 25 years of experience in manufacturing diagnostics and medical devices. Before joining QIAGEN, he spent 11 years at bioMerieux SA, and most recently served as Senior Vice President, Americas Operations & Global Third Party Products. He has held international roles in China, Europe and the U.S., and gained experience with Reliable Biopharmaceutical and Hovione. Mr. Santos earned a degree in chemical engineering at Nova University of Lisbon, School of Science and Technology, and an MBA at Rutgers University in the U.S.

Outlook

Based on the strong start to the year, QIAGEN has increased its full-year 2022 net sales outlook to at least $2.12 billion CER (prior outlook for at least $2.07 billion) compared to FY 2021 results of $2.25 billion, and for adjusted diluted EPS of at least $2.14 CER per share (prior outlook for at least $2.05 CER per share) compared to FY 2021 results of $2.65 per share. The updated outlook reflects a reaffirmation of the previous goal for double-digit CER sales growth from the non-COVID product groups, but for a significant year-on-year decline in COVID-19 product group sales based on expected volatile pandemic trends in 2022. Also taken into consideration was an updated assessment of current inflation and macro-economic trends. This includes the adverse impact of anticipated lost sales in 2022 from Russia, Ukraine and Belarus as a result of the ongoing war in Ukraine. These countries represented approximately 1% of total QIAGEN sales in 2021. QIAGEN continues to make investments into its portfolio, in particular the five pillars of growth, for new products, test menu and applications. The outlook does not take into consideration any future acquisitions.

Based on exchange rates as of April 25, 2022, currency movements against the U.S. dollar are expected to create an adverse impact of about four percentage points on FY 2022 net sales, which implies sales of approximately $2.03-2.04 billion at actual rates. An adverse impact of about $0.08-0.09 per share is expected on adjusted EPS, which implies adjusted EPS of approximately $2.05-2.06 per share at actual rates.

For Q2 2022, net sales are expected to be at least $510 million CER compared to $567.2 million in Q2 2021, while adjusted EPS is expected to be at least $0.46 CER per share compared to $0.67 per share in Q2 2021.

11


Based on exchange rates as of April 25, 2022, currency movements against the U.S. dollar are expected to have an adverse impact on sales of about 4-5 percentage points for the quarter, which implies sales of about $485-490 million at actual rates. An adverse impact of about $0.02-0.03 per share is expected on adjusted EPS, which implies adjusted EPS of approximately $0.43-0.44 per share at actual rates.

Investor presentation and conference call

A conference call is planned for Thursday, April 28, 2022, at 16:00 Frankfurt Time / 15:00 London Time / 10:00 New York Time. A live audio webcast will be made available in the investor relations section of the QIAGEN website, and a replay will also be made available after the event. A presentation is planned to be available shortly before the conference call at https://corporate.qiagen.com/investor-relations/events-and-presentations/default.aspx.

Use of adjusted results

QIAGEN reports adjusted results, as well as results on a constant exchange rate (CER) basis, and other non-U.S. GAAP figures (generally accepted accounting principles), to provide additional insight into its performance. These results include adjusted net sales, adjusted gross income, adjusted gross profit, adjusted operating income, adjusted operating expenses, adjusted operating income margin, adjusted net income, adjusted net income before taxes, adjusted diluted EPS, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EPS, adjusted income taxes, adjusted tax rate, and free cash flow. Free cash flow is calculated by deducting capital expenditures for Property, Plant & Equipment from cash flow from operating activities. Adjusted results are non-GAAP financial measures that QIAGEN believes should be considered in addition to reported results prepared in accordance with GAAP but should not be considered as a substitute. QIAGEN believes certain items should be excluded from adjusted results when they are outside of ongoing core operations, vary significantly from period to period, or affect the comparability of results with competitors and its own prior periods. Furthermore, QIAGEN uses non-GAAP and constant currency financial measures internally in planning, forecasting and reporting, as well as to measure and compensate employees. QIAGEN also uses adjusted results when comparing current performance to historical operating results, which have consistently been presented on an adjusted basis.

(a) Results for 2022 include costs for acquisition projects, including continued integration activities at NeuMoDx, as well as costs and impairments related to our business in Russia. Results for 2021 include integration costs for the NeuMoDx acquisition completed in September 2020. A restructuring program was initiated in late 2019, and charges were incurred through the end of 2021.
(b) The decrease reflects the full amortization during 2021 of certain assets previously acquired.
(c) Cash Convertible Notes were recorded at an original issue discount that is recognized as incremental non-cash interest expense over the expected life of the notes.
(d) Adjustment for the net impact of changes in fair value of the Call Options and the Embedded Cash Conversion Options related to the Cash Convertible Notes.
(e) This includes the impact of the estimated annual effective tax rate applied to the pretax amount in order to calculate the non-GAAP provision for income taxes. Additionally, certain income tax items were excluded from adjusted results since these represent updates in QIAGEN's assessment of ongoing examinations or other tax items that are not indicative of the Company's normal or future income tax expense. QIAGEN does not believe the impact of these events reflects the performance of ongoing operations for the periods in which the impact of such events were recorded.
(f) Results for 2021 includes the gain on the sale of shares held in Invitae Corporation that were received from Invitae's acquisition of ArcherDx, in which QIAGEN held a minority interest, and settlement of the related hedge.

Tables may contain rounding differences.
