Cancer Genetics, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Financial Results

Test Volume Increased 71% Year-Over-Year in the Third Quarter

Revenue From Commercial Sales Increased 67% Year-Over-Year in the Third Quarter

RUTHERFORD, N.J., Nov. 13, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cancer Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq:CGIX) ("CGI" or the "Company"), a DNA-based diagnostics company focused on developing genomic-based oncology tests and services, reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Third-Quarter Highlights

  • Test volume increased 71% to 2,920 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013, up from 1,704 for the third quarter of 2012.
  • Total revenue increased 37% to $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $1.2 million in the third quarter of 2012.
  • Revenue from commercial operations (excluding grants) increased 67% in the third quarter of 2013, compared to the third quarter of 2012.
  • Gross margin percentage increased to 29% in the third quarter of 2013, compared to 22% in the third quarter of 2012.
  • Total operating expenses were $2.2 million in the third quarter of 2013, compared to $2.0 million the same period of 2012.

"The significant growth of our commercial sales provides further validation of our ability to translate research-driven genetic insight into the clinical setting and improve patient care," stated Panna Sharma, CEO of CGI. "With five proprietary products in the market today, two successful capital raises completed since our IPO, and an underserved market opportunity in complex cancers, we are redefining the standard of care for personalized cancer treatment, and we believe that CGI is well positioned to be a leader in the emerging field of DNA-based cancer diagnostics, ultimately leading to improved patient treatment and higher value for the health care system."

Net loss was $3.1 million for the third quarter of 2013, compared with net income of $0.3 million for the same period of 2012. The net loss was primarily the result of non-cash expense related to an increase in the fair value of warrant liability.

Nine-Month Highlights

  • Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 increased 47% to $4.8 million, up from $3.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.
  • Test volume increased 63% to 8,035 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to 4,937 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.
  • Operating loss remained unchanged at $5.7 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Recent Business Highlights

  • CGI successfully completed two secondary stock offerings, raising approximately $62 million in gross proceeds.
  • At September 30, 2013, the Company had $9.9 million of cash, cash equivalents and investments. On a proforma basis, reflecting the $42.2 million in net proceeds from the October offering, the Company had $52.1 million cash at quarter end.
  • In August, concurrent with the Company's first secondary offering, CGI became a Nasdaq-listed company.
  • In September, the Company announced an expansion of its relationship with Roche Servicios, S.A., a division of Swiss drug giant Roche, designed to drive adoption of CGI's genomic tests in Latin America and the Caribbean.
  • OncoSpire Genomics, CGI's 50/50 joint venture with Mayo Clinic, launched; initial next generation sequencing projects to be unveiled at analyst/media event in New York City on November 22.
  • CGI launched its proprietary genomic-based diagnostic for cervical cancer, FHACT™, in July outside the United States; the Company expects to obtain CLIA approval and launch in the U.S. during the fourth quarter of 2013.
  • The Company significantly strengthened its overall intellectual property position through multiple patent awards covering the CGI's diagnostics for kidney cancer and mature B-cell cancers.
  • CGI's proprietary diagnostics were also further validated through multiple poster presentations; and a peer-reviewed published study on the Company's MatBA®-CLL diagnostic for chronic lymphocytic leukemia, which is to appear in the journal Leukemia and Lymphoma.
