PARSIPPANY, NJ, March 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Interpace Biosciences, Inc. (“Interpace” or the “Company”) (OTCQX: IDXG) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ending December 31, 2023.

For the fourth quarter, Interpace reported revenue of $10.3 million and income from continuing operations of $0.8 million, a $2.2 million improvement over the prior year quarter’s loss of $1.4 million. For the full year 2023, revenue and income from continuing operations were $40.2 million and $1.1 million, respectively. “The Company achieved record test volume, test revenue, income, and cash collections in the fourth quarter and full year 2023. For the full year 2023, revenue increased 26% over the prior year, driven by increased volume, additional commercial contracts, and collection initiatives,” said Chris McCarthy, Chief Financial Officer.

“2023 marked the 3rd consecutive year of price-adjusted revenue and profitability growth for the Company” said Tom Burnell, President and CEO. “Revenue and adjusted EBITDA for 2023 were $40.2 million and $5.4 million ($4.5 million, net of one-time, non-recurring charges), improving 26% and 463% versus the prior year, respectively.” Burnell further said, “Continued reliance by physicians and patients on the use of molecular diagnostics for risk stratification of pancreatic and thyroid cancer is evident with continued adoption of the Company’s PancraGEN® and ThyGeNEXT® + ThyraMIR® v2 tests.”

Mr. Burnell added: “These results are even more impressive given the challenges imposed upon numerous diagnostics companies in 2023 related to proposed changes to Medicare reimbursement for many diagnostic tests, including Interpace’s PancraGEN®/PathFinderTG® assay for pancreatic cancer. While final decisions are still in progress, I would like to congratulate the talent of the organization for undistracted navigation through these unprecedented events and for the overall success of the Company. Our collective team is resilient, strong, and dedicated. They, along with our physician, hospital, and laboratory partners are committed to providing information that helps guide the treatment of the patients we serve.”

To further bolster the Company’s ongoing commitment to patients by providing high-value esoteric molecular diagnostic tests, Interpace is also proud to announce that Dr. Nicole Massoll has joined our Executive Leadership Team as Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Massoll is a practicing Clinical and Anatomic Pathologist with added certification in Cytopathology, a Professor of Pathology at a top-rated academic hospital, and is a forerunner in the field of digital pathology. “I am excited to be joining Interpace,” stated Dr. Massoll, “and I am very much looking forward to being involved in all aspects of the business, including working with our existing commercial, medical and scientific teams to provide guidance and direction, not only for existing product improvement, but expansion of new technologies to support the continued strong growth of Interpace.”

The Company expects to file its 10K the week of March 19, 2024. The foregoing results are subject to final audit and adjustments, of which none are anticipated.

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.
