|Genoptix Reports Strong Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2007|
Annual Revenues Increase 147% In First Full-Year Of Profitability
CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Genoptix, Inc. (Nasdaq: GXDX), a specialized laboratory service provider, today reported revenues of $18.6 million for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2007, an increase of 137% over revenues of $7.8 million for the comparable period in 2006. For the full year ended December 31, 2007, the Company reported revenues of $59.3 million, an increase of 147% over revenues of $24.0 million for the same period in 2006.
"We are proud of our accomplishments in 2007, moving first to profitability then to the public markets, all while growing our core business and building a solid infrastructure for continued expansion," said Tina Nova Bennett, Ph.D., President and CEO of Genoptix.
Fourth Quarter 2007
Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2007 improved to $11.0 million, or 59% of revenues, from $4.0 million, or 51% of revenues, for the fourth quarter of 2006, a 175% improvement year-over-year resulting from an increase in sales and the leverage gained from additional case volumes.
Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2007 increased to $6.9 million from $4.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2006. These expenses were driven by investment in rapid organizational growth and ultimately contributed to operating income of $4.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2007, or 22% of revenues, as compared to a loss of $304 thousand during the same period in 2006.
GAAP net income for the fourth quarter of 2007 was $4.7 million, or diluted earnings per share (EPS) of $0.27, compared to a net loss of $358 thousand, or a net loss of $2.40 per diluted share, for the comparable period in 2006.
Full Year 2007
Gross profit for the full-year 2007 reached $35.2 million, pushing gross margins to 59%, up from $10.9 million, or 45% of revenues, for all of 2006. This improvement was primarily due to increases in case volume and service revenues resulting from an expanded sales effort and a net increase in Medicare reimbursement rates.
Operating expenses for 2007 increased to $22.2 million from $14.8 million for the full-year 2006, decreasing as a percentage of revenues to 37% for 2007, compared to 62% for all of 2006. Increased expenses were driven by the cost of additional personnel hired to support continued growth and infrastructure expansion. Operating income improved on a year-over-year basis, growing to just over $13 million at the end of 2007 from a loss of $3.9 million in 2006.
For the year, GAAP net income in 2007 increased to $13.4 million, $3.3 million of which is allocable to common shareholders, resulting in EPS of $0.78 on 4.2 million shares of weighted average common stock outstanding during the period. This compares to a net loss of $3.8 million, or a net loss of $33.74 per diluted share, for the full year 2006.
As of December 31, 2007, the Company's cash and cash equivalents and investment securities available-for-sale totaled $85.5 million compared to $3.9 million in the same period one year ago. Following completion of its IPO in November 2007, the Company received net proceeds of $72.5 million (after underwriting discounts, commissions and offering costs). For the full year ended December 31, 2007, cash generated from operations was $13.1 million, while purchases of capital equipment for the same period totaled $1.2 million.
"Once again, we improved our performance metrics over prior periods, ending the year with DSOs lowered to 52 days and further reducing bad debt expense to approximately 2% of our total revenues," said Sam Riccitelli, Genoptix EVP and COO. "Our solid operational execution and resulting cash flows support our reinvestment in future growth as we seek to enhance operational performance and provide added value to our core customers."
2008 Performance Outlook
For the full-year 2008, Genoptix expects revenues of approximately $90 million, resulting from expanded sales efforts and additional increases in case volumes.
The company also expects net income for 2008 of between $15 and $17 million (assuming an annual tax rate of 5% after utilizing our net operating loss carryforwards), which includes the impact of an estimated $6 million in non-cash stock-based compensation, an increase resulting primarily from expenses associated with the initiation of the Company's equity incentive programs. GAAP earnings per diluted share are expected to be in the range of $0.85 to $0.95 for the full year 2008.
Based on continued infrastructure expansion and implementation of its strategic plan, the Company is projecting capital expenditures of between $4 million and $6 million for the full-year 2008.
