Ft. Myers, Florida - February 27, 2020 - NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEO), a leading provider of cancer-focused genetic testing services, today announced fourth-quarter and full-year 2019 results for the period ended December 31, 2019.
“Our fourth quarter performance concludes a very successful year for NeoGenomics in which our company grew by nearly 50% and our competitive position strengthened dramatically”, said Douglas M. VanOort, the Company’s Chairman and CEO.
“In the fourth quarter, our Clinical Services Division once again reported excellent volume growth of 27% driven by market share gains and the addition of Genoptix. We are particularly pleased that combined molecular and Next Generation Sequencing test volume continued to grow at rates approximating 50%, and that average-revenue-per-test improved by over 10% from last year. Pharma Services Division growth was also excellent with strong revenue gains, a record amount of newly-signed contracts, and a current backlog of approximately $130 million in signed contracts.”
“Perhaps more importantly, we are very excited about the opportunities in front of us. We’ve made significant investments in a variety of growth initiatives over the past year, including our recent acquisition of the Oncology Division of Human Longevity, Inc., investments in Next Generation Sequencing, and Informatics. We believe that NeoGenomics has significant, sustainable competitive advantages and is well positioned for growth in each of the markets in which we operate.”
Consolidated revenue for the fourth quarter of 2019 was $106.9 million, an increase of 40% over the same period in 2018. Clinical test volume(1) increased by 27% year over year. Average revenue per clinical test (“revenue per test”) increased by 11% to $370, primarily due to the acquisition of Genoptix and the impact of favorable test mix and growth in next-generation sequencing. Clinical Services revenue was $93.4 million, resulting in a 42% increase over the fourth quarter of 2018. Pharma Services revenue was $13.5 million, which represented a 27% increase over the fourth quarter of 2018.
Gross profit improved by $12.8 million, or 34.5%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2018, to $49.9 million. Gross margin decreased by approximately 181 basis points year-over-year to 46.7%. Gross margin decreases are primarily due to the integration of Genoptix. Average cost of goods sold per clinical test (“cost per test”) increased by 14% year over year, reflecting the impact of the Genoptix acquisition, including integration-related activities, and test mix. The increase was partially offset by continued efficiencies as we integrate Genoptix.
Operating expenses increased by $13.3 million, or 39%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2018, primarily due to the Genoptix acquisition, investments in research and development, and growth initiatives.
