Pacific Biosciences of California Inc (PACB) stock dropped by 18.51% due to the release of preliminary unaudited revenue figures for Q4 2023. The company reported impressive YoY growth of 113%, with Q4 revenue at *$58.4 million and full-year 2023 revenue at $200.5 million. However, this substantial drop was likely due to investor expectations not aligning with the reported results. CEO Christian Henry credited this success to the launch of new sequencing solutions.

  • Consumable Revenue and System Shipments: Pacific Bio expected Q4 2023 consumable revenue of about **$18.9 million and annual consumable revenue of $63.4 million, with a significant portion coming from the Revio system.

Additionally, 20 Sequel IIe systems were shipped in 2023, bringing the cumulative total to 532 systems.
  • Cash and Investments Balance: PacBio anticipated a total cash, cash equivalents, and investments balance of approximately $631 million as of December 31, 2023, reflecting the company's financial stability.
  • Guidance and Future Outlook: PacBio aims for compound annual revenue growth of 40% to 50% through 2026, based on a 2022 revenue base of $128.3 million, targeting revenue exceeding $500 million by 2026.
