NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes (the “Interim Financial Statements”) should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements of Interpace Diagnostics Group, Inc. (the “Company” or “Interpace”), and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Interpace Diagnostics Lab Inc., Interpace Diagnostics Corporation and Interpace Diagnostics, LLC, and related notes as included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, as filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on March 21, 2019 (the “Form 10-K”). The condensed Interim Financial Statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) for interim financial reporting and the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. The condensed Interim Financial Statements include all normal recurring adjustments that, in the judgment of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of such interim financial statements. Discontinued operations include the Company’s wholly owned subsidiaries: Group DCA, LLC, or Group DCA; InServe Support Solutions; and TVG, Inc. and its Commercial Services (“CSO”) business unit which was sold on December 22, 2015. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. Operating results for the six-month period ended June 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019.

 

2. LIQUIDITY

 

As of June 30, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $4.2 million, net accounts receivable of $13.0 million, total current assets of $19.2 million and total current liabilities of $11.0 million. For the six months ended June 30, 2019, the Company had a net loss of $8.6 million and cash used in operating activities was $7.8 million.

 

The Company does not expect to generate positive cash flows from operations for the year ending December 31, 2019. The Company believes however, that it has sufficient cash balances to meet near term obligations and further intends to meet its capital needs by revenue growth, collection of accounts receivable, containing costs, continuing to enter into strategic alliances as well as exploring other options, including the possibility of raising additional debt or equity capital as necessary. Additionally, under the terms of the Financing Agreement with Ampersand described in Note 18- Subsequent Events, subject to stockholder approval required by the Nasdaq Listing Rules and satisfaction of customary conditions, the second tranche of funding of $13.0 million of Preferred Stock is anticipated to be completed before year end. There is, however, no assurance the Company will be successful in meeting its capital requirements prior to becoming cash flow positive.

 

3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Accounting Estimates

 

The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts of assets and liabilities reported and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Management’s estimates are based on historical experience, facts and circumstances available at the time, and various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Significant estimates include accounting for valuation allowances related to deferred income taxes, contingent consideration, allowances for doubtful accounts, revenue recognition, unrecognized tax benefits, and asset impairments involving other intangible assets. The Company periodically reviews these matters and reflects changes in estimates in earnings as appropriate. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates.

Revenue Recognition

 

Our Services

 

We are a fully integrated commercial and bioinformatics company that develops and provides clinically useful molecular diagnostic tests and pathology services. We develop and commercialize genomic tests and related first line assays principally focused on early detection of patients with indeterminate biopsies and at high risk of cancer using the latest technology to help personalized medicine and improve patient diagnosis and management. Our tests and services provide mutational analysis of genomic material contained in suspicious cysts, nodules and lesions with the goal of better informing treatment decisions in patients at risk of thyroid, pancreatic, and other cancers. The molecular diagnostic tests we offer enable healthcare providers to better assess cancer risk, helping to avoid unnecessary surgical treatment in patients at low risk. We currently have four commercialized molecular diagnostic tests in the marketplace for which we are receiving reimbursement: PancraGEN ® , which is a pancreatic cyst and pancreaticobiliary solid lesion genomic test that helps physicians better assess risk of pancreaticobiliary cancers using our proprietary PathFinderTG ® platform; ThyGeNEXT ® , which is an expanded oncogenic mutation panel that helps identify malignant thyroid nodules, and replaced ThyGenX ® ; ThyraMIR ® , which assesses thyroid nodules for risk of malignancy utilizing a proprietary microRNA gene expression assay; and RespriDx ® , which is a genomic test that helps physicians differentiate metastatic or recurrent lung cancer from the presence of newly formed primary lung cancer and which also utilizes our PathFinderTG ® platform to compare the genomic fingerprint of two or more sites of lung cancer. BarreGEN ® , an esophageal cancer risk classifier for Barrett’s Esophagus that also utilizes our PathFinder TG ® platform, is currently in a Clinical Evaluation Program or (“CEP”) whereby we gather information from physicians using BarreGEN ® to assist us in positioning our product for full launch, partnering and potentially supporting reimbursement with payers. See Note 18, Subsequent Events for a description of the biopharma services business (the “BioPharma Business”) of Cancer Genetics, Inc. (“CGI”) which we acquired on July 15, 2019.

 

Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC 606)

 

The Company derives its revenues from the performance of its proprietary tests. The Company’s performance obligation is fulfilled upon completion, review and release of test results to the customer. The Company subsequently bills third-party payers or direct-bill payers for the proprietary tests performed. Revenue is recognized based on the estimated transaction price or net realizable value (“NRV”), which is determined based on historical collection rates by each payer category for each proprietary test offered by the Company. To the extent the transaction price includes variable consideration, for all third party and direct-bill payers and proprietary tests, the Company estimates the amount of variable consideration that should be included in the transaction price using the expected value method based on historical experience.

 

The Company regularly reviews the ultimate amounts received from the third-party and direct-bill payers and related estimated reimbursement rates and adjusts the NRV’s and related contractual allowances accordingly. If actual collections and related NRV’s vary significantly from our estimates, we will adjust the estimates of contractual allowances, which would affect net revenue in the period such variances become known.

 

Disaggregated Revenues

 

We operate in a single operating segment and, therefore, the results of our operations are reported on a consolidated basis for purposes of segment reporting, which is consistent with internal management reporting. For the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018, substantially all of the Company’s revenues were derived from its Gastrointestinal and Endocrine molecular diagnostic tests.

Financing and Payment

 

For non-Medicare claims, our payment terms vary by payer category. Payment terms for direct-payers are typically thirty days. Commercial third-party-payers are required to respond to a claim within a time period established by their respective state regulations, generally between thirty to sixty days. However, payment for commercial third-party claims may be subject to a denial and appeal process, which could take up to two years in some instances where multiple appeals are submitted. The Company generally appeals all denials from commercial third-party payers.

 

Costs to Obtain or Fulfill a Customer Contract

 

Sales commissions are expensed when incurred because the amortization period would have been one year or less. These costs are recorded in sales and marketing expense in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

The Company’s accounts receivable represent unconditional rights to consideration and are generated using its proprietary molecular diagnostic tests. The Company’s services are fulfilled upon completion of the test, review and release of the test results. In conjunction with fulfilling these services, the Company bills the third-party payer or directly bills the hospital or service provider. Accounts receivable is recognized for all payer groups net of contractual adjustment and net of estimated uncollectable amounts. Contractual adjustments represent the difference between the list prices and the reimbursement rate set by third party payers, including Medicare, commercial payers, or amounts billed directly to hospitals and service providers. Specific accounts may be written off after several appeals, which in some cases may take longer than twelve months.

 

Leases

 

The Company determines if an arrangement contains a lease in whole or in part at the inception of the contract. Right-of-use (“ROU”) assets represent the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term while lease liabilities represent our obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. All leases with terms greater than twelve months result in the recognition of a ROU asset and a liability at the lease commencement date based on the present value of the lease payments over the lease term. Unless a lease provides all of the information required to determine the implicit interest rate, we use our incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at the commencement date in determining the present value of the lease payments. We use the implicit interest rate in the lease when readily determinable.

 

Our lease terms include all non-cancelable periods and may include options to extend (or to not terminate) the lease when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise that option. Leases with terms of twelve months or less at the commencement date are expensed on a straight-line basis over the lease term and do not result in the recognition of an asset or liability. See Note 6, Leases .

Other Current Assets

 

Other current assets consisted of the following as of June 30, 2019 and December 31, 2018:

 

    June 30, 2019     December 31, 2018  
    (unaudited)

Prepaid expenses     1,040       1,230  
Other     62       65  
Total other current assets   $ 1,977     $ 2,170  

 

Long-Lived Assets, including Finite-Lived Intangible Assets

 

Finite-lived intangible assets are stated at cost less accumulated amortization. Amortization of finite-lived acquired intangible assets is recognized on a straight-line basis, using the estimated useful lives of the assets of approximately two years to nine years in acquisition related amortization expense in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

The Company reviews the recoverability of long-lived assets and finite-lived intangible assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of such assets may not be recoverable. If the sum of the expected future undiscounted cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the asset, an impairment loss is recognized by reducing the recorded value of the asset to its fair value measured by future discounted cash flows. This analysis requires estimates of the amount and timing of projected cash flows and, where applicable, judgments associated with, among other factors, the appropriate discount rate. Such estimates are critical in determining whether any impairment charge should be recorded and the amount of such charge if an impairment loss is deemed to be necessary.

 

Discontinued Operations

 

The Company accounts for business dispositions and its businesses held for sale in accordance with ASC 205-20, Discontinued Operations (“ASC 205-20”) . ASC 205-20 requires the results of operations of business dispositions to be segregated from continuing operations and reflected as discontinued operations in current and prior periods. See Note 12, Discontinued Operations for further information.

5. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

Cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, and accounts payable approximate fair value due to their relative short-term nature. The Company’s financial liabilities reflected at fair value in the condensed consolidated financial statements include contingent consideration and warrant liability. Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In determining fair value, the Company uses various methods including market, income and cost approaches. Based on these approaches, the Company often utilizes certain assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, including assumptions about risk and/or the risks inherent in the inputs to the valuation technique. These inputs can be readily observable, market-corroborated, or generally unobservable inputs. The Company utilizes valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. Based upon observable inputs used in the valuation techniques, the Company is required to provide information according to the fair value hierarchy. The fair value hierarchy ranks the quality and reliability of the information used to determine fair values into three broad levels as follows:

 

  Level 1: Valuations for assets and liabilities traded in active markets from readily available pricing sources for market transactions involving identical assets or liabilities.
     
  Level 2: Valuations for assets and liabilities traded in less active dealer or broker markets. Valuations are obtained from third-party pricing services for identical or similar assets or liabilities.
     
  Level 3: Valuations incorporate certain assumptions and projections in determining the fair value assigned to such assets or liabilities.

 

In instances where the determination of the fair value measurement is based on inputs from different levels of the fair value hierarchy, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the entire fair value measurement falls is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. The Company’s assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgment, and considers factors specific to the asset or liability. The valuation methodologies used for the Company’s financial instruments measured on a recurring basis at fair value, including the general classification of such instruments pursuant to the valuation hierarchy, is set forth in the tables below:

(1)(2) See Note 8, Accrued Expenses and Long-Term Liabilities

 

In connection with the acquisition of certain assets from Asuragen, the Company recorded contingent consideration related to contingent payments and other revenue-based payments. The Company determined the fair value of the contingent consideration based on a probability-weighted income approach derived from revenue estimates. The fair value measurement is based on significant inputs not observable in the market and thus represents a Level 3 measurement.

 

On June 21, 2017, the Company issued 575,000 Underwriters Warrants, related to a public offering on the same date that included a cash settlement feature in the event of certain circumstances. Accordingly, the Underwriters Warrants are classified as liabilities and were fair valued using the Black Scholes Option-Pricing Model, the inputs for which include exercise price of the respective warrants, market price of the underlying common shares, expected term, volatility based on the Company’s historical market price, and the risk-free rate corresponding to the expected term of the underlying exchange agreement. Changes to the fair value of the warrant liabilities were recorded in Other income (expense), net.

 

A roll forward of the carrying value of the Contingent Consideration Liability and the Underwriters’ Warrants to June 30, 2019 is as follows:

 

                      Cancellation     Adjustment        
                      of Obligation/     to Fair Value/        
    December 31, 2018     Payments     Accretion     Conversions Exercises     Mark to Market     June 30, 2019

    $ 3,488     $ (263 )   $ 220     $ -     $ (45 )   $ 3,400  

 

Certain of the Company’s non-financial assets, such as other intangible assets and goodwill, are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis when there is an indicator of impairment and recorded at fair value only when an impairment charge is recognized.

6. LEASES

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which establishes a ROU model that requires a lessee to record a ROU asset and a lease liability, measured on a discounted basis, on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Effective January 1, 2019, the Company adopted the provisions of Topic 842 using the alternative modified transition method, with a cumulative effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings on the date of adoption, and prior periods not restated, as allowed under the provisions of Topic 842. The Company also elected to use the practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance of Topic 842, which provides for the following: the carryforward of the Company’s historical lease classification, no requirement for reassessment of whether an expired or existing contract contains an embedded lease, no reassessment of initial direct costs for any leases that exist prior to the adoption of the new standard, and the election to consolidate lease and non-lease components. The Company also elected to keep all leases with an initial term of 12 months or less off the balance sheet.

 

The Company recorded $2.4 million of right-of-use lease assets and $2.5 million of lease liabilities upon adoption, primarily relating to rentals of space for our corporate headquarters and laboratories, as well as equipment leases, all under operating leases. In addition, the Company recorded a cumulative adjustment to opening accumulated deficit of $0.1 million.

 

The table below presents the lease-related assets and liabilities recorded in the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet:

 

    Classification on the Balance Sheet   June 30, 2019  
          (unaudited)

Operating lease liabilities   Other accrued expenses   $ 574  
Noncurrent            
Operating lease liabilities   Operating lease liabilities     1,738  
Total lease liabilities       $ 2,312  

 

The weighted average remaining lease term for the Company’s operating leases was 3.9 years as of June 30, 2019 and the weighted average discount rate for those leases was 6.0%. The Company’s operating lease expenses are recorded within cost of revenue and general and administrative expenses.

7. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Litigation

 

Due to the nature of the businesses in which the Company is engaged it is subject to certain risks. Such risks include, among others, risk of liability for personal injury or death to persons using products the Company promotes or commercializes. There can be no assurance that substantial claims or liabilities will not arise in the future due to the nature of the Company’s business activities and recent increases in litigation related to healthcare products and related intellectual property.

 

The Company could also be held liable for errors and omissions of its employees in connection with the services it performs that are outside the scope of any indemnity or insurance policy. The Company could be materially adversely affected if it were required to pay damages or incur defense costs in connection with a claim that is outside the scope of an indemnification agreement; if the indemnity, although applicable, is not performed in accordance with its terms; or if the Company’s liability exceeds the amount of applicable insurance or indemnity.

 

As of June 30, 2019, the Company’s accrual for litigation and threatened litigation was not material to the condensed consolidated financial statements.

9. STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

 

Stock Incentive Plan

 

The Company’s stock-incentive program is a long-term retention program that is intended to attract, retain and provide incentives for talented employees, officers and directors, and to align stockholder and employee interests. Currently, the Company is able to grant options, stock appreciation rights (“SARs”) and restricted shares from the Interpace Diagnostics Group, Inc. Amended and Restated 2004 Stock Award and Incentive Plan, (the “Amended 2004 Plan”). Unless earlier terminated by action of the Company’s board of directors (the “Board”), the Amended 2004 Plan will remain in effect until such time as no stock remains available for delivery and the Company has no further rights or obligations under the Amended 2004 Plan with respect to outstanding awards thereunder.

Historically, stock options have been granted with an exercise price equal to the market value of the Common Stock on the date of grant, expire 10 years from the date they are granted, and generally vested over a one to three-year period for employees and members of the Board. Upon exercise, new shares will be issued by the Company. The Company granted stock options in 2017 which vest monthly over a one-year period. SARs are generally granted with a grant price equal to the market value of the Common Stock on the date of grant, vest one-third each year on the anniversary of the date of grant and expire five years from the date of grant. The restricted shares and restricted stock units (“RSUs”) granted to employees generally have a three-year graded vesting period and are subject to accelerated vesting and forfeiture under certain circumstances. Restricted shares and RSUs granted to Board members generally have a three-year graded vesting period and are subject to accelerated vesting and forfeiture under certain circumstances.

 

During the first quarter of 2019, members of the Company’s management team were granted incentive stock options to purchase an aggregate of 1,105,440 shares of Common Stock with an exercise price of $0.98 per share and 276,360 RSUs, subject generally to such member’s continued service with the Company, which vest one-third each year over a period of three years.

 

The following table provides the weighted average assumptions used in determining the fair value of the stock option awards granted during the six month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018.

 

    Six Months Ended  
    June 30, 2019     June 30, 2018

10. INCOME TAXES

 

Generally, accounting standards require companies to provide for income taxes each quarter based on their estimate of the effective tax rate for the full year. The authoritative guidance for accounting for income taxes allows use of the discrete method when it provides a better estimate of income tax expense. Due to the Company’s valuation allowance position, it is the Company’s position that the discrete method provides a more accurate estimate of income tax expense and therefore income tax expense for the current quarter has been presented using the discrete method. As the year progresses, the Company refines its estimate based on the facts and circumstances by each tax jurisdiction. The following table summarizes income tax expense on (loss) income from continuing operations and the effective tax rate for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018:

 

    Three Months Ended     Six Months Ended  
    June 30,     June 30,  
    2019     2018     2019     2018  
    (unaudited)     (unaudited)  
                         
Provision for income tax   $ 5     $ 8     $ 10     $ 14  
Effective income tax rate     0.1 %     0.4 %     0.1 %     0.3 %

 

Income tax expense for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 was primarily due to minimum state and local taxes.

 

11. SEGMENT INFORMATION

 

Since December 22, 2015, the Company reports its operations as one segment, molecular diagnostics and bioinformatics. The Company’s reporting segment structure is reflective of the way both the Company’s management and chief operating decision maker view the business, make operating decisions and assess performance. This structure allows investors to better understand Company performance, better assess prospects for future cash flows, and make more informed decisions about the Company.

 

The Company’s molecular diagnostics and bioinformatics business focuses on developing and commercializing molecular diagnostic tests, leveraging the latest technology and personalized medicine for better patient diagnosis and management. Through the Company’s business, the Company aims to provide physicians and patients with diagnostic options for detecting genetic and other molecular alterations that are associated with gastrointestinal, endocrine and lung cancers, which are principally focused on early detection of patients at high risk of cancer. Customers in the Company’s segment consist primarily of physicians, hospitals and clinics. The service offerings throughout the segment have similar long-term average gross margins, contract terms, types of customers and regulatory environments. They are promoted through one centrally managed marketing group and the chief operating decision maker views their results on a combined basis.

13. LINE OF CREDIT

 

On November 13, 2018 the Company, Interpace Diagnostics Corporation, and Interpace Diagnostics, LLC entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “SVB Loan Agreement”) with Silicon Valley Bank (“SVB”), which provides for up to $4.0 million of debt financing consisting of a term loan of up to $850,000 and a revolving line of credit based on its outstanding accounts receivable (the “Revolving Line”) of up to $4.0 million. As of June 30, 2019, the Company had no borrowings on its SVB Loan Agreement and was in compliance with all covenants.

 

The amount that may be borrowed under the Revolving Line is the lower of (i) $4.0 million or (ii) 80% of the Company’s eligible accounts receivable (as adjusted by SVB). Revolving Line outstanding amounts incur interest at a rate per annum equal to the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate plus 0.5%. The Company is also required to pay an unused Revolving Line facility fee monthly in arrears in an amount equal to 0.35% per annum of the average unused but available portion of the Revolving Line. Subsequent to June 30, 2019, the Company has drawn $3.4 million of the available funds with the Revolving Line and has $325,000 of remaining availability.

15. EQUITY

 

On January 25, 2019, the Company entered into an underwriting agreement (the “Underwriting Agreement”) with H.C. Wainwright & Co., LLC (“Wainwright”) with respect to the issuance and sale of an aggregate of 9,333,334 shares (the “Firm Shares”) of the Company’s Common Stock, in an underwritten public offering. Pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement, the Company also granted Wainwright an option, exercisable for 30 days, to purchase an additional 1,400,000 shares of Common Stock. The option expired unexercised. The Firm Shares were offered to the public at a price of $0.75 per Share. Wainwright purchased the Firm Shares from the Company pursuant to the Underwriting Agreement at an effective price of $0.6975 per share.

 

The Company received net proceeds, after deducting underwriter discounts and commissions and other expenses related to the offering, in the amount of approximately $6.0 million. The Company used the net proceeds from the offering for working capital, capital expenditures, business development and research and development expenditures, and acquisition of new technologies and businesses.

17. RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

Recently adopted standards

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which is effective for public companies for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Topic 842 establishes a right-of-use model that requires a lessee to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability, measured on a discounted basis, on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases are to be classified as either finance or operating leases, with such classification affecting the pattern or expense recognition in the statement of operations. We adopted this new standard as of January 1, 2019, by using the alternative modified transition method. See Note 3, Significant Accounting Policies , for more details.

18. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

On July 15, 2019, the Company, Interpace BioPharma, Inc., a newly formed and wholly owned subsidiary of the Company (“Buyer”), CGI, Gentris, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of CGI (“Gentris”) and Partners for Growth IV, L.P., a secured creditor of CGI (“PFG” or “Seller”), entered into and closed on a Secured Creditor Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) to acquire the assets and assume certain liabilities relating to CGI’s and Gentris’ BioPharma Business for $23.5 million less certain closing adjustments of $1.98 million.

 

The BioPharma Business provides pharmaceutical and biotech companies and non-profit entities performing clinical trials with lab testing services for patient stratification and treatment selection through an extensive suite of molecular and biomarker-based testing services, DNA- and RNA- extraction and customized assay development and trial design consultation.

 

Concurrent with the closing of the Asset Purchase Agreement, Ampersand 2018 Limited Partnership (“Ampersand”), a fund managed by Ampersand Capital Partners, agreed to provide up to $27.0 million of preferred stock (“Preferred Stock”) financing, which will be funded under two tranches (the “Financing Agreement”) to the Company in connection with the acquisition of the BioPharma Business. Under the terms of the Financing Agreement at the initial closing and first tranche the Company issued an aggregate of $14.0 million of Preferred Stock and under a second tranche, upon Interpace shareholder approval as required under the rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (the “Nasdaq Listing Rules”) and satisfaction of other customary conditions, funding of an additional $13.0 million of Preferred Stock is anticipated.

 

At the closing the Company used the proceeds from the initial tranche of the Preferred Stock financing and paid $13.8 million. Additionally, Buyer issued a subordinated seller note to CGI in the amount of $7,692,300, which matures upon the earlier of three years from issuance or consummation of the second closing. Such note contains an interest rate of 6%.

 

Subsequent to June 30, 2019, the Company has drawn $3.4 million of the $4.0 million of available funds under its Revolving Line; $250,000 of the Line of Credit has been used to secure the issuance of a standby letter of credit by SVB. As such, the amount available under the line is $3.75 million and there is currently $325,000 remaining available under the Revolving Line. The funds drawn were used in conjunction with the acquisition of the BioPharma Business of CGI.

OVERVIEW

 

We are a fully integrated commercial and bioinformatics company that develops and provides clinically useful molecular diagnostic tests and pathology services. We develop and commercialize genomic tests and related first line assays principally focused on early detection of patients with indeterminate biopsies and at high risk of cancer using the latest technology to help personalized medicine and improve patient diagnosis and management. Our tests and services provide mutational analysis of genomic material contained in suspicious cysts, nodules and lesions with the goal of better informing treatment decisions in patients at risk of thyroid, pancreatic, and other cancers. The molecular diagnostic tests we offer enable healthcare providers to better assess cancer risk, helping to avoid unnecessary surgical treatment in patients at low risk. We currently have four commercialized molecular diagnostic tests in the marketplace for which we are receiving reimbursement: PancraGEN ® , which is a pancreatic cyst and pancreaticobiliary solid lesion genomic test that helps physicians better assess risk of pancreaticobiliary cancers using our proprietary PathFinderTG ® platform; ThyGeNEXT ® , which is an expanded oncogenic mutation panel that helps identify malignant thyroid nodules and replaced ThyGenX ® ; ThyraMIR ® , which assesses thyroid nodules for risk of malignancy utilizing a proprietary microRNA gene expression assay; and RespriDx ® , which is a genomic test that helps physicians differentiate metastatic or recurrent lung cancer from the presence of newly formed primary lung cancer and which also utilizes our PathFinderTG ® platform to compare the genomic fingerprint of two or more sites of lung cancer. BarreGEN ® , an esophageal cancer risk classifier for Barrett’s Esophagus that also utilizes our PathFinderTG ® platform, is currently in a CEP whereby we gather information from physicians using BarreGEN ® to assist us in positioning our product for full launch, partnering and potentially supporting reimbursement with payers.

INTERPACE DIAGNOSTICS GROUP, INC.

 

Our mission is to provide personalized medicine through genomics-based diagnostics and innovation to advance patient care based on rigorous science. Our laboratories are licensed pursuant to federal law under CLIA and are accredited by CAP and New York State. In August 2018, we acquired a majority of the Philadelphia laboratory equipment of Rosetta Genomics Ltd., a molecular diagnostics company, in order to further support our CLIA and CAP certified lab expansion in our New Haven, Connecticut and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania laboratories.

 

We are leveraging our licensed and accredited laboratories to develop and commercialize our assays and products. We aim to provide physicians and patients with diagnostic options for detecting genomic and other molecular alterations that are associated with gastrointestinal, endocrine, and lung cancers. Our customers consist primarily of physicians, hospitals and clinics.

 

The global molecular diagnostics market is estimated to be approximately $6.5 billion and is a segment within the approximately $60 billion in vitro diagnostics market according to statistics from Kalorama Information, publisher of the Worldwide Market for In Vitro Diagnostic Tests . We believe that the molecular diagnostics market offers significant growth and strong patient value given the substantial opportunity it affords to lower healthcare costs by helping to reduce unnecessary surgeries and ensuring the appropriate frequency of monitoring. We are keenly focused on growing our test volumes, securing additional insurance coverage and reimbursement, maintaining and growing our current reimbursement and supporting revenue growth for our molecular diagnostic tests, introducing related first line product and service extensions, as well as expanding our business by developing and promoting synergistic products in our markets. We also believe that BarreGen ® is a potentially significant pipeline product, and we are providing necessary resources to accelerate our development process. Further, we believe BarreGEN ® is synergistic with our capabilities in the gastrointestinal market, which is one of the sectors in which we operate. Additionally, we are focused on either acquiring or licensing products that either leverage our commercial capabilities and/or diversify our revenue base away from the risks associated with reimbursement by leveraging our molecular data and capabilities. On July 15, 2019, we acquired the BioPharma Business of CGI, as discussed in Note 18, Subsequent Events , to the condensed consolidated financial statements furnished herewith.

 

Additional Reimbursement Coverage During 2019

 

Reimbursement progress is key for any molecular diagnostic company. We have been successful to date in expanding the reimbursement of our products in 2019. Specifically, the most significant progress we have made regarding payers to date in 2019 is as follows:

 

  In January 2019, we announced that we had entered into an Agreement with the University of Maryland Medical System (“UMMS”) to provide physicians’ access to ThyGeNEXT ® , ThyraMIR ® , and PancraGEN ® across the UMMS network, which includes 4,000 affiliated physicians who provide primary and specialty care in more than 150 locations and at 14 hospitals.
  In April 2019, we announced that Medica, one of the largest health plans in the Midwest, extended coverage of both ThyGeNEXT ® and ThyraMIR ® to its 1.3 million covered lives. Physicians across Medica’s entire network will now be able to utilize Interpace’s thyroid products.
  In April 2019, we announced that we had received approval to launch ThyraMIR ® diagnostic testing on formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (“FFPE”) tissue samples from thyroid nodules from the State of New York.
  In June 2019, we announced that our ThyGeNEXT ® and ThyraMIR ® tests are now covered by Independence Blue Cross (“Independence”), providing plan benefits coverage for its members who meet established medical criteria for the tests. Independence covers nearly 2.5 million members in Philadelphia and Southeastern Pennsylvania.

 

  27  
 

 

INTERPACE DIAGNOSTICS GROUP, INC.

 

  In July 2019, we announced that we reached an agreement with SelectHealth (a plan associated with Intermountain Healthcare) (“SelectHealth”) to provide our proprietary thyroid cancer assays, ThyGeNEXT ® and ThyraMIR ® , to SelectHealth’s more than 850,000 members in Utah and Idaho.
  In July 2019, we announced we had entered into a contract with Blue Shield of California, a not-for-profit independent member of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association making ThyGeNEXT ® and ThyraMIR ® tests in-network services for their 4 million lives.
 

In July 2019, we announced that we contracted with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, a not-for-profit independent member of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, for coverage of our thyroid tests. The contract makes the ThyGeNEXT ® and ThyraMIR ® tests both covered services as well as in-network services for their total of 6 million members.

 

DESCRIPTION OF REPORTING SEGMENTS

 

Since December 22, 2015, the Company reports its operations as one segment, molecular diagnostics and bioinformatics. The Company’s reporting segment structure is reflective of the way both the Company’s management and chief operating decision maker view the business, make operating decisions and assess performance. This structure allows investors to better understand Company performance, better assess prospects for future cash flows, and make more informed decisions about the Company.

 

Revenue

 

The Company’s revenue is generated from the performance of its proprietary molecular diagnostics tests. The Company’s performance obligation is fulfilled upon completion, review and release of test results and subsequent billing to the third-party payer or hospital.

 

Under ASC 606, the Company recognizes revenue for billings less contractual allowances and estimated uncollectable amounts for all payer groups on the accrual basis based upon a thorough analysis of historical receipts. The net amount derived and used for revenue recognition is referred to as the NRV for the particular test and payer group from which reimbursement is received. This derived NRV is evaluated quarterly or as needed and then applied to future periods until recalculated.

 

Persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists and delivery is deemed to have occurred upon completion, review, and release of the test results at which time we billed the third-party payor or hospital. The assessment of the fixed or determinable nature of the fees charged for diagnostic testing performed, and the collectability of those fees, requires significant judgment by our management. Our management believes that these two criteria have been met when there is contracted reimbursement coverage or a predictable pattern of collectability with individual third-party payers or hospitals and accordingly, recognized revenue upon delivery of the test results. In the absence of contracted reimbursement coverage or a predictable pattern of collectability, we believe that the fee was fixed or determinable and collectability was reasonably assured only upon request of third-party payor notification of payment or when cash was received, and we recognize revenue at that time.

 

Cost of services consists primarily of the costs associated with operating our laboratories and other costs directly related to our tests. Personnel costs, which constitute the largest portion of cost of services, include all labor related costs, such as salaries, bonuses, fringe benefits and payroll taxes for laboratory personnel. Other direct costs include, but are not limited to, laboratory supplies, certain consulting expenses, and facility expenses.

Revenue, net

 

Consolidated revenue, net for the three months ended June 30, 2019 increased by $0.8 million, or 14%, to $6.3 million, compared to $5.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This increase was principally attributable to increased test volume for both our GI and thyroid tests, partially offset by variable pricing adjustments under ASC 606.

 

Cost of revenue

 

Consolidated cost of revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was $3.0 million, as compared to $2.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. As a percentage of revenue, cost of revenue increased to 48% for the three months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to 41% in the comparable same period in 2018. This increase as a percentage of revenue can be attributed to increased employee costs and an increase in royalty expense. The second quarter of 2018 also benefited from reduced lab supply expenses due to the timing of purchases in 2018.

 

  29  
 

 

INTERPACE DIAGNOSTICS GROUP, INC.

 

Gross profit

 

Consolidated gross profit was approximately $3.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and $3.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The gross profit percentage decreased from 59% in the second quarter of 2018 to 52% for the second quarter of 2019. This decrease can be attributed to the increase in costs discussed above.

 

Sales and marketing expense

 

Sales and marketing expense was $3.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019, or 47% as a percentage of net revenue. For the three months ended June 30, 2018, sales and marketing expense was $2.1 million, or 38% as a percentage of net revenue. The increase in sales and marketing expense primarily reflects an increase in employee and consulting costs of $0.6 million, as we have expanded the size of our salesforce and increased our contracting and marketing activities which are supporting our growth.

 

Research and development

 

Research and development expense was $0.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and $0.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. As a percentage of revenue research and development expense increased to 10%, up from 9% in the comparable prior year quarter.

 

General and administrative

 

General and administrative expense for the three months ended June 30, 2019 was $2.8 million as compared to $1.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. This increase was primarily related to certain non-cash charges including bad debt expense from the ASC 606 conversion and the reversal of a contingent claim in the prior year.

 

Acquisition related expense

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2019 we incurred approximately $1.3 million in expenses related to our acquisition of the BioPharma Business on July 15, 2019.

 

Acquisition related amortization expense

 

During the three months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018, we recorded amortization expense of approximately $0.8 million, respectively in both periods which is related to intangible assets associated with prior acquisitions.

 

Operating loss

 

Operating loss from continuing operations was $(5.3) million for the three months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to $(1.9) million for the three months ended June 30, 2018. The increase can be attributed to the increase in general and administrative and sales and marketing expense discussed above as well as the $1.3 million in acquisition related expenses incurred in the quarter.

 

Provision for income taxes

 

Income tax expense was approximately $5,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2019 and $8,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. Income tax expense for both periods was primarily driven by minimum state and local taxes.

Sales and marketing expense

 

Sales and marketing expense was $5.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019, or 44% as a percentage of net revenue. For the six months ended June 30, 2018, sales and marketing expense was $4.1 million, or 40% as a percentage of net revenue. The increase in sales and marketing expense primarily reflects an increase in employee and consulting costs of $1.1 million, as we expanded the size of our salesforce and have increased our contracting and marketing activities which are supporting our growth.

 

Research and development

 

Research and development expense totaled approximately $1.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and $1.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

 

General and administrative

 

General and administrative expense for the six months ended June 30, 2019 was $5.3 million as compared to $3.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. This increase was primarily related to certain non-cash charges including bad debt expense from the ASC 606 conversion and the reversal of a contingent claim in the prior year.

 

Acquisition related expense

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2019 we incurred approximately $1.7 million in expenses related to our acquisition of the BioPharma Business on July 15, 2019.

 

Acquisition related amortization expense

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2019 and June 30, 2018, we recorded amortization expense of approximately $1.6 million, respectively in both periods which is related to intangible assets associated with prior acquisitions.

 

Operating loss

 

Operating loss from continuing operations was $(8.5) million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 as compared to $(5.1) million for the six months ended June 30, 2018. The increase can be attributed to the increase in general and administrative expense and sales and marketing expense discussed above as well as the $1.7 million in acquisition related expenses incurred during the six months ended June 30, 2019.

 

Provision for income taxes

 

Income tax expense was approximately $10,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and $14,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018. Income tax expense for both periods was primarily driven by minimum state and local taxes.

 

Income (loss) from discontinued operations, net of tax

 

We had income from discontinued operations of $0.01 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019 and a loss from discontinued operations of $(0.1) million for the six months ended June 30, 2018.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2019, we had an operating loss of $(8.5) million. As of June 30, 2019, we had cash and cash equivalents of $4.2 million, net accounts receivable of $13.0 million, total current assets of $19.2 million and current liabilities of $11.0 million.

 

During the six months ended June 30, 2019, net cash used in operating activities was $(7.8) million, all but $0.03 million of which was used in continuing operations. The main component of cash used in operating activities during the six months ended June 30, 2019 was the net loss of $(8.6) million. During the six months ended June 30, 2018, net cash used in operating activities was $(5.0) million, of which $(4.6) million was used in continuing operations and $(0.4) million was used in discontinued operations. The main component of cash used in operating activities during the six months ended June 30, 2018 was the net loss of $(5.1) million .

 

The $2.8 million increase in cash used during the six months ended June 30, 2019 over the prior year period was due primarily to the transition in billing service providers and corresponding delays in third party reimbursement.

 

For the six months ended June 30, 2019, there was cash provided from financing activities of $6.0 million which resulted from the issuance of Common Stock in our underwritten public offering completed in January 2019.

 

We intend to meet our capital needs by driving revenue growth, collection of accounts receivable, containing costs as well as exploring other options. Management believes that the Company has sufficient cash on hand and available amounts on its Revolving Line to sustain operations through at least August 31, 2020. Additionally, under the terms of the Financing Agreement with Ampersand, subject to the stockholder approval required by the Nasdaq Listing Rules and satisfaction of customary conditions, the second tranche of funding of $13,000,000 of Preferred Stock is anticipated to be completed before year end. However, there is no guarantee that additional capital can be raised to fund our future operations.

 

Subsequent to June 30, 2019, the Company has drawn $3.4 million of the $4.0 million of available funds under its Revolving Line with SVB. The funds drawn were used principally in conjunction with the acquisition of the BioPharma Business of CGI,

 

Inflation

 

We do not believe that inflation had a significant impact on our results of operations for the periods presented. On an ongoing basis, we attempt to minimize any effects of inflation on our operating results by controlling operating costs and whenever possible, seeking to insure that billing rates reflect increases in costs due to inflation.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

None.
