Good afternoon, everyone, thank you for your patience, and welcome to Genomic Health conference call to review our third quarter 2012 financial results.

We refer you to our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2012, filed with the SEC, in particular to the section entitled Risk Factors, for additional information on factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our current expectations. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date hereof, and we disclaim any obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

I'll now turn the call over to Kim.

Kimberly J. Popovits

Thanks, Emily. Good afternoon, everyone, and welcome. We delivered another strong quarter highlighted by $3.7 million in net income and a 13% increase in year-over-year product revenue, led by a significant international growth, reflecting the diversification of our business and continued progress in capturing this important global opportunity.

Further, we were especially pleased with the achievement of positive results from our large prostate cancer clinical validation study, in collaboration with leading researchers from the University of California, San Francisco, as announced in September. With these data, we are now positioned to leverage our proven commercial infrastructure in addressing a third major cancer in one of the greatest needs in medicine by making the Oncotype DX prostate cancer test available in the first half of 2013.

I will now turn the call over to Dean, Brad and Steve to provide further details on how our third quarter 2012 financial results, our worldwide commercial and operation's progress and our prostate cancer program. I will then conclude with our business priorities for the remainder of the year.


Dean L. Schorno

Thank you, Kim. In the third quarter of 2012, we achieved 13% growth in both product and total revenue. Specifically, total revenue was $58.6 million compared with $52.1 million in 2011, and product revenue increased to $58.4 million compared with $51.7 million in the same period of 2011. Contract revenue comprised the balance of total revenue for the third quarter of 2012.

During the quarter, we delivered $3.7 million in net income compared with $3.2 million in the same period of 2011. We delivered more than 18,030 Oncotype DX tests in the third quarter, reflecting a 7% year-over-year increase. This result was a decrease compared to the second quarter of 2012, primarily impacted by lower-than-anticipated U.S. invasive breast cancer test volume, influenced by one less selling day in the quarter, along with reports of fewer patient visits, and, we believe, to a lesser extent, increased competitive activity. In light of this, we expect tests delivered to be approximately 74,000 for the year.

60% of tests delivered and 62% of product revenue were recorded on an accrual basis in the third quarter of 2012. Product revenues grew at a faster rate than test volumes during the quarter, largely due to strong international cash collections as a result of continued progress with payers in both Canada and Western Europe. We anticipate overall fourth quarter product revenue to be similar to third quarter results.
