Shares of 23andMe Holding Co. fell 15.8% Thursday after the DNA-testing company fiscal third-quarter sales declined 33%, weighed down by lower consumer services and research revenue.

The stock’s performance puts 23andMe
shares on pace for their biggest daily percentage decline since Nov. 9, 2023, they fell 21.96%, according to Dow Jones Market Data. The stock is also on pace for its fourth-worst daily percentage decline.

23andMe’s third-quarter revenue was $44.7 million, down from $66.9 million in the prior year’s quarter. The company said this was due to lower research revenue after the conclusion of its exclusive GSK PLC AR
collaboration in July 2023 and lower consumer services revenue driven mainly by lower PGS (Preimplantation Genetic Screening) kit sales volume and telehealth orders. These decreases were partially offset by higher revenue from non-recurring payments from other research partners as well as growth in 23andMe’s membership services revenue, the company said. Analysts surveyed by FactSet were looking for sales of $54 million.

Revenue from consumer services, which includes PGS, telehealth and membership services, accounted for approximately 96% of 23andMe’s total third-quarter revenue, the company said. Research services revenue accounted for approximately 4% of 23andMe’s total revenue.

The company reported a net loss of $278 million, or a loss of 58 cents a share, compared to a net loss of $92 million, or a loss of 20 cents a share, in the year-ago quarter. Analysts surveyed by FactSet were expecting a loss of 14 cents a share.
