Cancer Genetics Reports Third Quarter 2020 Financial Results

RUTHERFORD, N.J., Nov. 12, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cancer Genetics, Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CGIX), a leader in drug discovery and preclinical oncology and immuno-oncology services, announced today financial and operating results for the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

RECENT STRATEGIC AND OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

 Entered into a definitive agreement to merge with StemoniX, a leader in powering the discovery of new medicines through the convergence of novel human biology and software technologies
   
 Continued stability and customer loyalty from biopharma partners in vivoPharm’s drug discovery business
   
 Commenced a joint proof-of-concept program with StemoniX to confirm a best-in-class drug discovery platform converging in-vivo, in-vitro and in-silico innovations
   
 Closed on $3 million of financing in October 2020 to meet cash requirements pending the proposed upcoming merger with StemoniX

John A. Roberts, Chief Executive Officer of Cancer Genetics stated, “During Q3 2020, we continued to make advances to enhance value for our shareholders and customers. The key event of the quarter was signing a definitive agreement to merge with StemoniX. Based on our lengthy search for a merger partner since last year, StemoniX proved to be the most attractive opportunity for our shareholders by extracting meaningful value from synergies with our vivoPharm drug discovery business and the continued transformation of our business model.”

Mr. Roberts continued, “To illustrate the relationship more fully, we have announced a joint proof-of-concept program between StemoniX and vivoPharm®, a subsidiary of Cancer Genetics. The initial program will assess CNS (central nervous system) safety and toxicity of novel compounds, and will set the stage for future partnership collaborations with drug developers. We are also exceptionally encouraged with their recent announcement related to the publication of a new research paper, “Screening for modulators of neural network activity in 3D human iPSC-derived cortical spheroids,” in the journal PLOS ONE. The research describes how the StemoniX microBrain 3D platform can be used in functional high-throughput screens to identify potentially new therapeutics for central nervous system (CNS) indications, further supporting our belief in the increasing value this merger will bring to our combined shareholders.”

Cancer Genetics continued to service customers through the company’s Discovery Services business, vivoPharm. We experienced a delay in new contract signings in Q3 while many of our customers diverted their resources to COVID-19 initiatives and oriented their scientific and discovery teams to remote working environments.

The Company filed its quarterly report for Q3 2020 on Form 10-Q today with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

THIRD QUARTER 2020 FINANCIAL RESULTS

The Company reported total revenue from continuing operations of $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2020 compared to revenue of $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2019, a decrease of approximately $0.5 million or 24% principally due to delays in drug discovery programs impacting our customer’s preclinical projects teams as customers diverted their resources to COVID-19 initiatives and oriented their scientific and discovery teams to remote working environments.

Gross profit margin in the third quarter 2020 was 41.8% or $0.7 million as compared to gross profit margin from continuing operations of 52.0% or $1.1 million in the third quarter of 2019. The Discovery Services business unit gross margin decreased in the third quarter of 2020 compared to 2019 principally due to the change in revenue in the comparable periods.

Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2020 were approximately $2.0 million (including approximately $0.5 million of one-time non-recurring expenses related to merger and financing costs). This represents a decrease of 57.0% compared to total operating expenses from continuing operations for the third quarter of 2019 which were approximately $4.7 million. The decrease in total operating expenses was due to a $2.9 million goodwill impairment charge recorded in the third quarter of 2019.

Net loss from continuing operations was $1.4 million or ($0.58) per share for the third quarter of 2020. Net Loss from continuing operations was $4.8 million in the third quarter of 2019 or ($2.38) per share.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled approximately $1.1 million as of September 30, 2020.
