Interpace Biosciences Announces Third Quarter 2022 Financial and Business Results Sale of Pharma Significantly Improves Liquidity Resulting in Removal of Going Concern

  • Q3 Revenue of $8.2 million up 2% versus Prior Year
  • Q3 Adjusted EBITDA Positive
  • Cash and Cash Equivalents total $6.3 million as of September 30, 2022

PARSIPPANY, NJ, Nov. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Interpace Biosciences, Inc. (“Interpace” or the “Company”) (OTCQX: IDXG) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2022 and provided a business and financial update.

Third quarter Net Revenue was $8.2 million, a 2% increase as compared to the same period of 2021. Operating expenses for the third quarter were approximated 12% lower than the same period of 2021. Our loss from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2022 was $1.3 million, slightly better than the prior year quarter. The net loss from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2021 was benefited by a $700 thousand tax credit for a sale of the Company’s net operating losses; there was no similar transaction in 2022.

“We are very pleased with the improvement in liquidity resulting from the sale of the Pharma business in August,” stated Tom Burnell, Ph.D., President and CEO of Interpace Biosciences. “We believe we have sufficient cash and line of credit availability to fund operations for at least the next twelve months, resulting in a removal of a going concern conclusion as of the end of the third quarter,” Mr. Burnell continued, “This gives the Company flexibility going into the fourth quarter of 2022 and early 2023.” “We’re also pleased to announce that the last 2 quarters of volume for both of our testing franchises have been the Company’s highest two quarters of volume on record. However, the ThyGeNEXT pricing change impacted revenue and EBITDA by approximately $1.4 million for the third quarter of 2022,” stated Mr. Burnell.

For the Third Quarter of 2022 as Compared to the Third Quarter of 2021

  • Net Revenue was $8.2 million, an increase of 2% versus the prior year quarter.
  • Gross Profit percentage was 58% compared to 55% for the prior year quarter, an improvement year over year.
  • Loss from Continuing Operations was approximately$(1.3) million in both periods.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $0.1 million vs $(0.2) million in the prior year quarter.

For the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2022 as Compared to the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2021

  • Net Revenue was $23.5 million for the first nine months of 2022, a 2% decrease over the prior year period. The lower revenue is attributable to the ThyGeNEXT reimbursement rate decline.
  • Gross Profit percentage was 56% compared to 58% for the first nine months of 2021. The decline in gross profit is directly tied to lower ThyGeNEXT reimbursement.
  • Loss from Continuing Operations was $(4.5) million vs. $(5.3) million prior year to date, an improvement of $0.8 million. This improvement is driven by a decline in operating expenses versus prior year.
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $(1.8) million vs. $(0.3) million in the prior quarter.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the United States generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, results provided throughout this document, we have provided certain non-GAAP financial measures to help evaluate the results of our performance. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures, when presented in conjunction with comparable GAAP financial measures, are useful to both management and investors in analyzing our ongoing business and operating performance. We believe that providing the non-GAAP information to investors, in addition to the GAAP presentation, allows investors to view our financial results in the way that management views financial results.

In this document, we discuss Adjusted EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is a metric used by management to measure cash flow of the ongoing business. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as income or loss from continuing operations, plus depreciation and amortization, acquisition related expenses, transition expenses, non-cash stock based compensation and ESPP plans, interest and taxes, and other non-cash expenses including asset impairment costs, bad debt expense, receipt of stimulus grants, loss on extinguishment of debt, goodwill impairment and change in fair value of contingent consideration, and warrant liability. The table above includes a reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
