FT. MYERS, Fla., March 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASD OTC Bulletin Board: NGNM), an operator of a network of cancer-focused testing laboratories, today announced its results for the fourth quarter and full-year ended December 31, 2008.
Fourth Quarter 2008 Highlights:
Fiscal Year 2008 Highlights:
Fourth Quarter 2008
Revenues increased 56.0% year-over-year to $5.9 million in Q4 08 from Q4 07. Requisitions increased 37.2% and average revenue/requisition increased 13.7% to $819.77. Gross profit increased 65.8% to approximately $3.1 million in Q4 08. Gross profit margin increased by 310 basis points to 53.1% in Q4 08 from 50.0% in Q4 07. Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased 11.0% to approximately $3.8 million. However, SG&A expenses as a percentage of revenue fell to 64.8% in Q4 08 from 91.1% in Q4 07. Net loss decreased by approximately $601,000 to ($994,000) or ($0.03)/share in Q4 08 from ($1,596,000) or ($0.05/share) in Q4 07.
SG&A expenses in the fourth quarter included the write-off of approximately $318,000 of previously capitalized transaction expenses incurred in connection with exploring a strategic transaction which we ultimately determined was not in our shareholders' best interests to consummate. Fourth quarter SG&A also includes a charge of $200,000 to fully reserve for potential losses in our investment in Power3 Medical Products, Inc. Based on Power 3's February 19th 8-K filing and recent conversations with their management team, we have concluded that it is more likely than not that we will be unable to realize any value from this investment. We also took approximately $415,000 of incremental bad debt expense in Q4 08 over and above what we took in Q3 08 in order to write off the rest of the accounts receivable balance left in our previous billing system, which was replaced in March 2008, and provide for a more adequate reserve balance against our current receivables in light of the current economic conditions. Absent these expenses, we would have been approximately break-even in the fourth quarter and our SG&A as a percentage of revenue would have been in-line with the trend we reported in Q3 08.
Robert Gasparini, the Company's President and Chief Scientific Officer, stated, "We continue to be very pleased with the momentum in our business. 2008 was the second year in a row that we were able to grow our revenues by approximately 75% and we accomplished much during the year, including rolling out many new products, growing our sales force considerably and achieving near break-even in our cash flow from operations. Although our fourth quarter included a number of unusual expense items which adversely impacted our bottom-line, our business is very strong on a current operating basis. As we have seen in our industry, it takes approximately $2.0 - $2.5 million of monthly revenues to derive any real operating leverage. Now that we have reached that threshold, we expect to be able to invest a much larger portion of our incremental revenue into sales and marketing initiatives. Indeed, we believe we have now concluded the most difficult part of our corporate evolution and are very much looking forward to Phase II of the Company's development, which we expect will begin with robust and profitable growth in 2009."
Mr. Gasparini continued, "I am also pleased to report that in Q4 we began performing molecular genetic testing in-house. During Q4, we brought up and validated both the BCR/ABL and JAK2 molecular tests and began to offer them to clients. Although molecular testing volumes are currently modest, by bringing this capability in-house, we are able to save on the significant costs of sending these types of tests out. During 2009, we expect to bring up another 6-8 molecular tests. During Q4, we also made significant strides in further developing our in-house immunohistochemistry product line. We validated over 100 antibodies and have already grown this business to approximately $100,000/month in revenue. We are also in the process of developing a number of other new product line extensions which we expect to begin launching later this year."
Full Year 2008
For the full-year of 2008, revenues increased by $8.5 million or 74.0% to $20.0 million from $11.5 million in 2007. Requisitions increased by 51.2% and average revenue/requisition increased by 15.0%. Gross profit increased by 78.2% or approximately $4.7 million to approximately $10.7 million in the full-year of 2008. SG&A expenses increased 26.6% to approximately $11.5 million for the full-year of 2008. The increases in SG&A are primarily the result of adding sales and marketing and corporate personnel to continue to scale our business. SG&A as a percentage of revenue fell to 57.7% for the full-year of 2008 from 79.3% in the comparable period in 2007. Net loss decreased by approximately $1,998,000 to ($1,383,000) or ($0.04/share) for the full-year of 2008 from ($3,380,173) or ($0.11/share) for the comparable period in 2007.
