RUTHERFORD, N.J., Aug. 09, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cancer Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq:CGIX), an emerging leader in molecular and biomarker-based cancer diagnostics, announced today financial and operating results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2016 and provided other company and business updates.

Total revenues were $7.0 million in the second quarter of 2016 and included $4.2 million from Biopharma services and $2.5 million from Clinical services, compared with total revenue of $4.2 million in the second quarter of 2015, an increase of 67 percent.

Panna Sharma, Cancer Genetics CEO and President commented, “Our growth and performance during the second quarter was strong and our impact on the oncology community continued to accelerate as a result of our biopharma contracts and our emphasis on providing disease-focused, and clinically actionable genomic as well as immune-marker data and testing capabilities. This along with our innovative portfolio and global infrastructure is truly unique to CGI and a cornerstone of our future growth.”

Other key financial results and highlights for the quarter ended June 30, 2016 include:

  • Revenue from Clinical Services was $2.5 million, a 103% increase over Q2 2015 and a 4% sequential increase over Q1 2016.
  • Revenue from Discovery Services was $0.2 million, compared to $0.3 million over the same period of 2015 and essentially flat over Q1 2016.
  • Gross profit margins improved to 39% a significant improvement from 26% in Q2 2015 and a sequential increase from 32% during Q1 2016.
  • The Company’s organic growth rate was 18% over Q2 2015 and 27% over Q1 2016
  • Q2 2016 Clinical Services test volume increased 8% to 7,153 over 6,608 during Q1 2016
  • Signed contracts for expected future revenue with biotech and pharmaceutical companies increased to over $47 million, a sequential increase of over $6 million from Q1 2016
  • Total expenses for the quarter were $11.0 million, a reduction of 2.2% from $11.3 million during Q1 2016 largely driven by streamlining workflow across sites and reductions in staff.

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2016, Cancer Genetics reported a net loss of $4.0 million or $0.28 per diluted share, as compared with a net loss of $5.0 million or $0.51 per diluted share during the same period of 2015, and $5.3 million or $0.39 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2016. This is an improvement in net income of 20% year over year and 23% during sequential quarters.

Panna Sharma commented, “Our growth areas of immuno-oncology and biopharma partnerships continue to advance our market-share. This is clearly reflected in our Biopharma Services revenue, which comprised 60% of the revenue for the quarter. Additionally, our portfolio of unique and disease-targeted next-generation sequencing (NGS) panels, immune markers, and cell-free DNA capabilities is advancing quickly. Our unmatched and industry-leading portfolio is helping CGI secure collaborations with leading institutions, and revenue-generating relationships with biotech and pharma companies that are working on targeted therapeutics, immuno-oncology targets and companion diagnostics, all of which are leading precursors for future growth and revenue for CGI.”

During the second quarter of 2016, Cancer Genetics also made significant advancements in the development of cell-free or liquid biopsy based genomic tests. The Company expects to launch focused, multi-gene, liquid biopsy tests for lung cancer and renal cancer in the upcoming quarters. Cancer Genetics is also currently involved in a three-way collaboration with Huntsman Cancer Institute at University of Utah and Pfizer in the validation of the Company’s multi-gene signature for determination of renal cancer sub-types that can aid in patient management as well as therapy selection in renal cancer. Additionally, the Company is developing a focused multi-gene assay that can aid in comprehensive diagnosis, monitoring, and therapy selection, including the identification of resistance mutations for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
