Interpace Biosciences Announces Record Third Quarter 2023 Financial and Business Results

  Q3 Revenue of $9.1 million; an 11% increase year-over-year

  Q3 Test volume up 11% year-over-year

  Q3 Reimbursement improvement up 11% year-over-year, driven by additional commercial contracts and collection initiatives

PARSIPPANY, NJ, Nov. 08, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Interpace Biosciences, Inc. (“Interpace” or the “Company”) (OTCQX: IDXG) today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023 and provided a business and financial update.

Third quarter Net Revenue was $9.1 million, a $0.9 million increase over third quarter 2022. Loss from continuing operations in the third quarter of 2023 was $0.5 million, an improvement of $0.7 million from the prior-year quarter’s loss of $1.3 million. On an adjusted basis, EDITDA was $0.4 million in Q3 and $2.9 million for YTD 2023. Net of previously reported one-time charges, YTD adjusted EBITDA is $3.9 million vs a YTD 2022 loss of $1.8 million.

Q3 represented the 3rd consecutive quarter of double-digit volume and revenue growth in 2023 compared to 2022, according to Chris McCarthy, Chief Financial Officer. Tom Burnell, President and CEO, added, “in part due to expansion of test utilization by physicians, the execution of new and re-negotiated commercial contracts, as well as overall price improvement, the cash position of the Company allowed for the full re-payment of $2.5 million that was outstanding on the Company’s Line of Credit with Comerica Bank.” Additionally, Burnell said, “in an effort to continue to improve the Company’s balance sheet, we fully satisfied the $3 million Terminal Payment owed to BroadOak Capital Partners as part of our long-term debt agreement.” The Company was also able to re-negotiate the terms of the LTD, significantly reducing the cost of capital. Finally, Burnell added, “the resiliency of our team is second-to-none. They have endured restructuring, reimbursement challenges, and the shedding of non-performing assets all while optimizing operational efficiency and overall growth of superior molecular diagnostics for assessing the risk of pancreatic and thyroid cancers.” The Company announced that it expects full-year 2023 revenue to exceed $40 million.

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, non-cash stock based compensation and ESPP plans, interest and taxes, and other non-cash expenses including change in fair values of notes payable, 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.
