FT. MYERS, Fla., July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEO), a leading provider of cancer-focused genetic testing services today reported its results for the second quarter of 2014.
Second Quarter 2014 Highlights:
- Test volume increase of 40%
- Revenue increase of 32%
- Average cost per test reduction of 12%
- Gross Profit Margin of 49.5% versus 45.9% last year
- Adjusted EBITDA of $2.1 million
Revenue for the second quarter was $20.7 million, an increase of 32% over last year on test volume growth of 40%. This revenue growth was achieved despite a $1.05 million reduction in revenue as a result of our conservative interpretation of the contradictory new National Correct Coding Initiative ("NCCI") edits relating to billing Medicare for certain FISH tests, which have yet to be clarified by CMS.
Although average revenue-per-test decreased by 5.3% from the second quarter of last year due entirely to the NCCI FISH matter, average cost-of-goods-sold-per-test improved by 11.7%. As a result, gross margin increased to 49.5% from 45.9% in last year's second quarter.
Operating expenses increased by 45.2% to $9.7 million from $6.7 million in Quarter 2 of last year. This increase was driven by an increase in the size of our sales team, increased commission and bad debt expense related to the increase in revenue, and continued investments in facilities, information technology, and new test development activities.
Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the quarter was $2.1 million, a 15.8% increase from last year. Net income was $274,000 or $0.01/share versus $273,000 or $0.01/share in Quarter 2 of last year. Absent the impacts of the NCCI FISH matter, the Company estimates that Adjusted EBITDA would have been $3.1 million and net income would have been approximately $1.1 million, or $0.02/share.
Douglas M. VanOort, the Company's Chairman and CEO commented, "We are extremely proud of our team and our results for the second quarter. The 32% growth in revenue and 360 basis point expansion in gross margin, particularly in the face of a 5.3% reduction in average unit price, is a significant accomplishment. Our team is executing very well, and the receptivity to our full service product offering continues to gain significant traction in the marketplace."
Mr. VanOort continued, "We are especially pleased with the 12% reduction in average cost of goods sold per test in the quarter. The redesign of our Fort Myers, FL lab and our other lean initiatives are yielding results, and we continue to believe that average cost per test can be reduced by 8-10% in both 2014 and in 2015 on a full year basis."
"We are also pleased to report a record $4.3 million of cash flow from operations in the quarter. Our accounts receivable balance expressed in days sales outstanding (DSO) has now been reduced to 83 days on June 30th from a peak of 103 days earlier in the year. Our strong collections allowed us to fund more than half of the purchase price of our recent acquisition of Path Logic with cash flow generated in the quarter."
Mr. VanOort concluded, "Given the opportunities for further market share gains, we made a conscious decision to invest heavily in our sales and IT teams, and in new product development. Although incremental profit was not as high as in previous periods, we believe these investments will help further position our company for sustained growth well into the future."
