RUTHERFORD, N.J., Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cancer Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq: CGIX), a leader in enabling precision medicine for immuno-oncology and genomic medicine through molecular markers and diagnostics, today announced financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018 as well as an update on its strategic direction and key organizational initiatives.
John A. Roberts, Chief Executive Officer of Cancer Genetics said, “During the second quarter of 2018, we made significant advances in reorienting the company and are continuing to take the necessary steps to increase the efficiency of our overall business portfolio and accelerate our path to profitability.
“We are making good progress in consolidating the operations of our West Coast molecular profiling laboratory and moving these capabilities to our facilities in New Jersey and North Carolina. We believe that the consolidation of the Los Angeles facility will reduce our operating expenses, making a positive contribution towards our cost structure consistent with our growth and transformation strategy for 2018 and beyond.”
Mr. Roberts added, “To supplement our efforts aimed at growing our biopharma business, we strengthened our management team with the appointment of Michael McCartney as the company’s Chief Commercial Officer. Michael will be responsible for overseeing our commercial strategy and leading the Company’s business development initiatives. To that end, I am particularly pleased with the recent developments in our biopharma channel strategy with an increased velocity of project work with our channel partner firms. We have a solid, collaborative foundation stemming from previous partnership agreements signed in 2016, and have recently begun expanding the scope of our work with these partners.”
Mr. Roberts concluded, “On the financial front, we recently completed a convertible note financing and raised $2.5 million to support the execution of our 2018 transformation and strategic plan to reorganize our business and position the company for future growth. Further, our engagement with Raymond James as a financial advisor in evaluating strategic options continues to progress, as we have been engaged in discussions regarding several potential transactions and hope to make an announcement concerning these developments in the near future. Overall, we are committed to executing on our growth strategy and remain focused on making CGI a premier company in the precision oncology arena.”
SECOND QUARTER 2018 AND RECENT OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS
- Strengthened leadership team with appointment of Michael McCartney as Chief Commercial Officer.
- Completed sale of wholly-owned subsidiary BioServe Biotechnologies (India) Private Limited to REPROCELL for $1.9 million in April 2018.

Biopharma services revenue totaled $3.6 million in the second quarter, compared to $3.3 million during the second quarter 2017.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2018 were approximately $7.4 million, an increase of 30% compared to $5.7 million during the second quarter of 2017, principally due to restructuring costs of $0.7 million, an increase in our professional fees of $0.5 million related to recent financing and M&A activities, an increase in our bad debt expense of $0.2 million, and an increase in our selling expenses of $0.1 million.
Net loss was $3.6 million or $0.13 per share for the second quarter of 2018, compared to a net loss of $2.8 million or $0.16 per share for the second quarter of 2017.
