Salt Lake City, March 22, 2017

– Great Basin Scientific, Inc. (OTCQB: GBSN), a molecular diagnostic company, today reported operating results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2016.

 

“The fourth quarter of 2016 was a period of significant progress and change for Great Basin,” said Ryan Ashton, co-founder and chief executive officer of Great Basin. “During the third quarter, research and development spending and gross margin inefficiency peaked as we invested in significant menu expansion, which included concurrently running two clinical trials and preparing for the commercial launch of two products that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cleared in early 2016. With those efforts either behind us or winding down, we turned our focus to improving operational efficiencies and implementing cost management programs in preparation for 2017. These efforts resulted in a reduction in sequential quarterly operating expenses and our strongest gross margins of the fiscal year. Furthermore, we expect that the changes we made in the fourth quarter—along with the January completion of the clinical trial for our Bordetella Direct Test and the restructuring and reduction plan we announced in early February—will result in further improvements to our operating expenses, burn rate and gross margins in the first half of 2017.”

 

“Beyond the sequential improvements in gross margins and reduced operating expenses, 2016, overall, was a year of noteworthy progress for the Company. For the first time, we launched two new products and successfully completed two clinical trials in a single year. The doubling of our menu to four assays will promote our objective of continually expanding our customer footprint and increasing our revenue per customer.”
