FT. MYERS, FL / ACCESSWIRE / February 24, 2021 / NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ:NEO), a leading provider of cancer-focused genetic testing services, today announced fourth-quarter and full-year 2020 results for the period ended December 31, 2020.

Douglas M. VanOort, the company's Chairman and CEO said "2020 was a remarkable year for NeoGenomics, and one that obviously no one could have prepared for or anticipated. We are proud of the outstanding NeoGenomics team for responding and excelling in this most challenging environment. They never wavered from delivering high-quality results for the physicians and patients we serve.

We are also proud of our financial performance, as Fourth Quarter revenue increased 18% year-over-year to a record $126 million. For the first time since the pandemic began, we saw year-over-year growth in all of our core divisions. As the pandemic subsides, we believe that growth will recover steadily back to our longer-term growth targets, and we remain highly confident in the strength of our core oncology business and long-term growth opportunities.

Although I have made the decision to retire as CEO of NeoGenomics after 12 years, I believe that our company's future has never been brighter. Mark Mallon is an incredible leader and we are very excited to be able to attract an executive of his caliber to execute towards our goal of becoming the world's leading oncology diagnostics and information company."

Fourth-Quarter Results

Consolidated revenue for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $126 million, an increase of 18% over the same period in 2019. Clinical Services revenue increased year-over-year by 14% to $107 million, primarily driven by COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction ("PCR") testing revenue of $9 million. Clinical test volume(1) increased by 5% year-over-year. Average revenue per clinical test ("revenue per test") was flat at $369 when compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. Pharma Services revenue grew by 43% to $19 million compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, primarily driven by an increase in research and informatics.

Gross profit increased by $7.5 million, or 15.1%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, to $57.5 million. This increase was the result of higher test volume.

Operating expenses increased by $4 million, or 9%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2019, reflecting investments in informatics, growth initiatives and costs associated with the integration of HLI-Oncology.

Net income for the fourth quarter was $15 million compared to $6 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Adjusted EBITDA(2) was $18 million compared to $14 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. Adjusted Net Income(2) was $17 million compared to $11 million in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Cash and cash equivalents, including restricted cash, was $251 million and short-term marketable securities were $68 million. Days sales outstanding ("DSO") was 78 days at the end of the fourth quarter of 2020.

Full-Year Results

Consolidated revenue for 2020 was $444 million, an increase of 9% over 2019. This increase was primarily driven by COVID-19 PCR testing revenue of approximately $28 million and growth in our Pharma Services segment. Net income for 2020 was $4 million compared to net income of $8 million in 2019. Adjusted EBITDA(2) for 2020 was $35 million compared to $57 million in 2019. Adjusted Net Income(2) for 2020 was $17 million compared to $32 million in 2019.

Subsequent Event

On January 11, 2021, the Company closed on concurrent underwritten public offerings of its common stock and 0.25% convertible senior notes due 2028. The net proceeds from these offerings were approximately $553 million after deducting the underwriting discounts, commissions and estimated offering expenses. The Company used $29 million of the net proceeds from the offerings to enter into capped call transactions. The Company intends to use the remaining net proceeds from the offerings for general corporate purposes and/or to acquire or invest in complementary businesses and technologies.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company's financial results and financial guidance are provided in accordance with GAAP and include the use of certain non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that the presentation of operating results using non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplemental information to investors and facilitates the analysis of the Company's core operating results and comparison of core operating results across reporting periods. Management also uses non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making, planning and forecasting purposes and to manage the Company's business. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures enable investors to evaluate the Company's operating results and future prospects in the same manner as management. The non-GAAP financial measures do not replace the presentation of GAAP financial results and should only be used as a supplement to, and not as a substitute for, the Company's financial results presented in accordance with GAAP. There are limitations inherent in non-GAAP financial measures because they exclude charges and credits that are required to be included in a GAAP presentation, and do not present the full measure of the Company's recorded costs against its net revenue. In addition, the Company's definition of the non-GAAP financial measures below may differ from non-GAAP measures used by other companies.

Definitions of Non-GAAP Measures

Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA

"Adjusted EBITDA" is defined by NeoGenomics as net income from continuing operations before: (i) interest expense, (ii) tax expense, (iii) depreciation and amortization expense, (iv) non-cash stock-based compensation expense, and, if applicable in a reporting period, (v) acquisition and integration related expenses, (vi) non-cash impairments of intangible assets, (vii) and other significant non-recurring or non-operating (income) or expenses.

Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Income

"Adjusted Net Income" is defined by NeoGenomics as net income (loss) from continuing operations plus: (i) non-cash amortization of customer lists and other intangible assets, (ii) non-cash stock-based compensation expense, and, if applicable in a reporting period, (iii) acquisition and integration related expenses, (iv) non-cash impairments of intangible assets, (v) and other significant non-recurring or non-operating (income) or expenses. If GAAP net income is negative and Adjusted Net Income is positive, adjusted diluted net income will also be adjusted to reverse any recognized interest expense (including any amortization of discounts) on the convertible notes using the if-converted method unless the effect of this adjustment on both the Adjusted Net Income and weighted average diluted common shares outstanding would be anti-dilutive.

Non-GAAP Adjusted Diluted EPS

"Adjusted Diluted EPS" is defined by NeoGenomics as Adjusted Net Income divided by adjusted diluted shares outstanding. If GAAP net income is negative and Adjusted Net Income is positive, adjusted diluted shares outstanding will also include any options or restricted stock that would be outstanding as dilutive instruments using the treasury stock method and the weighted average number of common shares that would be outstanding if the convertible notes were converted into common stock on the original issue date based on the number of days such common shares would have been outstanding in the reporting period, until the effect of these adjustments are anti-dilutive.

Each of these measures is defined in the section of this report entitled "Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures." See also the tables reconciling such measures to their closest GAAP equivalent.

(6) This adjustment is for rounding and, in those periods in which GAAP Net Income is negative and Adjusted Net Income is positive, also compensates for the effects of additional diluted shares included in Adjusted Diluted Shares Outstanding for the treasury stock impact of outstanding stock options and restricted stock and the if-converted impact of convertible notes.

(7) In those periods in which GAAP Net Income is negative and Adjusted Net Income is positive, this adjustment includes any options or restricted stock that would be outstanding as dilutive instruments using the treasury stock method and the weighted average number of common shares that would be outstanding if the convertible notes were converted into common stock on the original issue date based on the number of days such common shares would have been outstanding in the reporting period, until the effect of these adjustments are anti-dilutive.

(8) Clinical tests exclude requisitions, tests, revenue and costs of revenue for Pharma Services and COVID-19 PCR tests.
