ITEM 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.
On October 10, 2023, Myriad Genetics, Inc. (the “Company”) agreed on a new long-term agreement with UnitedHealthcare which includes pricing for products including but not limited to MyRisk®, MyChoice CDx®, BRACAnalysis CDx®, Foresight®, Prequel®, GeneSight®, and Prolaris®. The contract amendment is effective January 1, 2024 and runs through December 31, 2027. Additional terms of the deal are not disclosed.
At its investor day on September 19, 2023, the Company provided updates to its long-term financial targets with assumptions consistent with this renewal. The Company reiterates the long-term financial targets provided at that time.
This Current Report on Form 8-K contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, including statements concerning long-term financial targets. These “forward-looking statements” are management’s present expectations of future events as of the date hereof and are subject to a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results, conditions, and events to differ materially and adversely from those anticipated. These risks include, but are not limited to: the risk that sales and profit margins of the Company’s existing tests may decline or that the Company may not be able to operate its business on a profitable basis; risks related to the Company’s ability to achieve certain revenue growth targets and generate sufficient revenue from its existing product portfolio or in launching and commercializing new tests to be profitable; risks related to changes in governmental or private insurers’ coverage and reimbursement levels for the Company’s tests or the Company’s ability to obtain reimbursement for its new tests at comparable levels to its existing tests; risks related to increased competition and the development of new competing tests; continued uncertainties associated with COVID-19, including its possible effects on the Company's operations and the demand for its products; the risk that the Company may be unable to develop or achieve commercial success for additional tests in a timely manner, or at all; the risk that the Company may not successfully develop new markets or channels for its tests, including the Company’s ability to successfully generate substantial revenue outside the United States; the risk that licenses to the technology underlying the Company’s tests and any future tests are terminated or cannot be maintained on satisfactory terms; risks related to delays or other problems with constructing and operating the Company’s laboratory testing facilities; risks related to public concern over genetic testing in general or the Company’s tests in particular; risks related to regulatory requirements or enforcement in the United States and foreign countries and changes in the structure of the healthcare system or healthcare payment systems; risks related to the Company’s ability to obtain new corporate collaborations or licenses and acquire or develop new technologies or businesses on satisfactory terms, if at all; risks related to the Company’s ability to successfully integrate and derive benefits from any technologies or businesses that it licenses, acquires or develops; the risk that the Company is not able to secure additional financing to fund its business, if needed, in a timely manner or on favorable terms, if it all; risks related to the Company’s projections about the potential market opportunity for the Company’s current and future products; the risk that the Company or its licensors may be unable to protect or that third parties will infringe the proprietary technologies underlying the Company’s tests; the risk of patent-infringement claims or challenges to the validity of the Company’s patents; risks related to changes in intellectual property laws covering the Company’s tests, or patents or enforcement, in the United States and foreign countries; risks related to security breaches, loss of data and other disruptions, including from cyberattacks; risks of new, changing and competitive technologies in the United States and internationally and that the Company may not be able to keep pace with the rapid technology changes in its industry, or properly leverage new technologies to achieve or sustain competitive advantages in its products; the risk that the Company may be unable to comply with financial operating covenants under the Company’s credit or lending agreements; risks related to the Company’s inability to achieve and maintain effective disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting; risks related to current and future investigations, claims or lawsuits, including derivative claims, product or professional liability claims, including the risk that the court does not approve the settlement of the class action lawsuit, and risks related to the amount of the Company's insurance coverage limits and scope of insurance coverage with respect thereto; and other factors discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” contained in Item 1A of the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on March 1, 2023 as updated in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on May 4, 2023 and the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on August 4, 2023, as well as any further updates to those risk factors filed from time to time in the Company’s Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q or Current Reports on Form 8-K. The Company is not under any obligation, and it expressly disclaims any obligation, to update or alter any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise except as required by law.
In accordance with General Instruction B-2 of Form 8-K, the information set forth in Item 7.01 shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liability of that section, and shall not be incorporated by reference into any registration statement or other document filed under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended or the Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
