Share:

RUTHERFORD, N.J., June 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cancer Genetics, Inc. (the "Company") (NASDAQ:CGIX), a leader in drug discovery and preclinical oncology and immuno-oncology services, today announced financial and operating results for the quarter ended March 31, 2020.

RECENT STRATEGIC AND OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Continued focus on cost reduction and cash preservation initiatives.
  • Increased attention on drug discovery and preclinical services.
  • Consistent revenue from Discovery Services in the comparable Q1 quarters of 2020 and 2019.
  • Successful and efficient operation of Discovery Services in the US, Europe, and Australia.
  • Meaningful progress made with evaluating potential strategic options including collaborations, mergers or acquisitions, or other collaborative transactions. Further announcements expected to be made later in 2020.

John A. Roberts, Chief Executive Officer of Cancer Genetics stated, "In Q1 2020, our Discovery Services business unit remained stable, and believe it will continue to experience year-over-year revenue growth in 2020, consistent with prior years. Our operating costs associated with the disposition of certain business assets in 2019 and the related financial statement audit for 2019 were greater than expected in Q1 2020. While we anticipate that certain expenses related to these events will continue in Q2 2020, given the one-time occurrence of these transactions, we expect operating costs to be significantly reduced in the second half of 2020."

"Efforts have accelerated to identify strategic and collaboration partners so that we can execute our plans to further enhance value for our shareholders. We intend to transform the business significantly by continuing to improve our balance sheet and refocusing the business on precision and translational medicine. We feel these actions will move our business into the emerging area of drug discovery and novel therapies. As previously reported, various strategic options are being evaluated. We are pleased to report that our vivoPharm business continues to operate efficiently, allowing us to take a thoughtful and methodical approach in regards to a future transaction," Mr. Roberts stated.

"In summary, the Company's management and Board of Directors are committed to evaluating all potential strategic opportunities and to pursuing the path most likely to create both near and longer-term value for Cancer Genetics' shareholders. We look forward to keeping shareholders apprised of our progress," Mr. Roberts concluded.

The Company filed its quarterly report for Q1 2020 on Form 10-Q today with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

FIRST QUARTER 2020 FINANCIAL RESULTS

The Company reported total revenue from continuing operations of $1.4 million for the first quarter of 2020 compared to revenue of $1.8 million in the first quarter of 2019 (which included $0.3 million from an IP license arrangement unrelated to the Discovery Services business unit), a decrease of approximately $0.4 million or 21.7%.

Gross profit decreased to $0.6 million or 42.9% in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $0.8 million or 45.0% in the first quarter of 2019. While the overall gross margin decreased by 2.1 percentage points primarily as a result of the high margin revenue recorded from the IP license transaction, the Discovery Services business unit gross margin increased from $0.5 million or 34.2% in the first quarter of 2019 to $0.6 million or 42.9% in the first quarter of 2020 principally due to a reduction in outsourcing costs offset by a slight seasonal effect on revenue. The remaining costs are relatively consistent in the comparable periods for the Discovery Services business unit.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were approximately $1.9 million, a decrease of 4.7% compared to $2.0 million during the first quarter of 2019. The decrease in total operating expenses was partially due to decreased corporate costs, partially offset by higher sales and marketing spend in the Discovery Services business unit compared to the first quarter of 2019.

Net loss from continuing operations was $1.2 million or $0.56 per share for the first quarter of 2020, compared to a net loss of $1.7 million or $1.06 per share for the first quarter of 2019.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled approximately $3.9 million as of March 31, 2020, including restricted cash.
