STAMFORD, Conn., Aug. 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sema4 Holdings Corp. (Nasdaq: SMFR) (“Sema4”), an AI-driven genomic and clinical data intelligence platform company, today reported the financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021 of Mount Sinai Genomics, Inc. d/b/a Sema4, Sema4’s operating entity prior to the business combination, and provided an update on key strategic and operational initiatives.

“Becoming a public company last month marked a transformative step towards delivering on our long-term mission to combine genomic and clinical data in a precision medicine model to improve the standard of care for patients,” said Eric Schadt, Ph.D., Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Sema4. “The business platform is similarly purpose built, driving a virtuous cycle of ingesting data, delivering differentiated insights to support clinicians, researchers, and patients, which in turn drives more engagement, more interactions, and generates more data to fuel the cycle.”

“With a deep balance sheet, we are rapidly expanding our core reproductive health and emerging oncology businesses, and believe as the size and scale of Sema4’s health intelligence platform grows, so will its potential value. In that regard, we are excited to announce three new health system partnerships in 2021 thus far,” Dr. Schadt continued. “These are critical proof points in our model and we expect the proceeds from our recent merger to accelerate our ability to fuel organic growth through our rapid investment in infrastructure, people, technology, and sales, and drive increased capabilities and market share through the acquisition of complementary businesses.

Isaac Ro, Chief Financial Officer of Sema4, added: “Volume growth is strong and we remain confident in our long-term goal of delivering $500 million in 2023 revenue as we partner with health systems, expand the menu of offerings, and scale the business.”

Second Quarter Financial Results

Total revenue for the second quarter of 2021 was $46.9 million, compared to $30.1 million in the second quarter of 2020. Revenue growth was driven primarily by an increase of volume in Women’s Health and Oncology solutions, along with growth in collaboration service activities due to the execution of three new third-party contracts.

Cost of services was $49.6 million in the second quarter of 2021, compared to $36.0 million in the same period of 2020. The increase was due to increased volumes in our non-COVID business, footprint expansion in our Stamford lab, expanded headcount, temporary labor costs related to COVID-19, and higher logistical and supply costs.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2021 were $41.9 million. This compared to operating expenses of $28.3 million in the second quarter of 2020. The increase in operating expenses was due in part to higher personnel-related costs coupled with professional services related to the business combination.

Second quarter of 2021 net loss was ($45.4) million compared to net loss of ($32.1) million for the same period in 2020.

Total cash, including cash equivalents, was $26.5 million as of June 30, 2021. This does not include $510 million net cash proceeds Sema4 received from the consummation of the July 2021 business combination.
