Cancer Genetics Reports Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results


RUTHERFORD, N.J., Aug. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cancer Genetics, Inc. (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: CGIX), a leader in drug discovery and preclinical oncology and immuno-oncology services, announced yesterday financial and operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2020.


The Company reported total revenue from continuing operations of $1.4 million for the second quarter of 2020 compared to revenue of $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of approximately $0.1 million or 5% principally due to the timing of discovery services studies.

Gross profit remained approximately the same in both of the comparable quarters of 2019 and 2020, while the overall gross margin increased by 4 percentage points, from approximately 52% to 56%. The Discovery Services business unit gross margin increased in second quarter of 2020 compared to 2019 principally due to lower lab supplies and outsourcing expenses in the comparable periods.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2020 were approximately $2.5 million, an increase of 68% compared to $1.5 million during the second quarter of 2019. The increase in total operating expenses was primarily due to an increase in professional fees of $901 thousand including one-time costs of approximately $619 thousand associated with accounting for discontinuing operations as well as the timing of such fees incurred (Q1 2019 vs. Q2 2020) and connected to the annual filing of the Company’s Form 10-K. These additional expenses resulted from the significant company turnaround associated with the disposition of two business units and close-out of those discontinued operations.

Net loss from continuing operations was $1.8 million or $0.82 per share for the second quarter of 2020, compared to a net loss of $0.5 million or $0.24 per share for the second quarter of 2019.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled approximately $2.9 million as of June 30, 2020.

The Company filed its quarterly report for Q2 2020 on Form 10-Q yesterday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
