NeoGenomics Reports 181% Increase in Adjusted EBITDA on 38% Revenue Growth and Achieves Profitability in 2012 Provides Financial Outlook for 2013 PR Newswire FT. MYERS, Fla., Feb. 14, 2013 FT. MYERS, Fla., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --NeoGenomics, Inc. (NASDAQ: NEO), a leading provider of cancer-focused genetic testing services today reported its results for the fourth quarter and full year 2012. Fiscal Year 2012 Highlights: o50% Test Volume Growth o38% Revenue Growth o181% Increase in Adjusted EBITDA oNet Income of $65K, or $0.00 per Share Revenue for the full year 2012 was $59.9 million, a $16.4 million or 38% increase over 2011 revenue of $43.5 million on test volume growth of 50%. Average revenue-per-test decreased by 8% as a result of the expiration of the TC Grandfather Clause on June 30th, which resulted in the loss of approximately $2.6 million of revenue in the second half of the year. Despite this major regulatory change, gross margin improved slightly to 44.8% on a full-year basis from 44.7% in 2011. Total operating expenses increased by 29% from 2011, primarily as a result of a $1.7 million increase in R&D expenditures related to new test development, as well as increased personnel, depreciation and bad debt expense associated with the revenue growth. As a percentage of revenue, operating expenses improved to 42.8% in 2012 from 45.6% in 2011. Net income for 2012 was $65,000 or $0.00 per share versus a net loss of $1.2 million or ($0.03) per share in 2011. Adjusted EBITDA for the year improved by $3.9 million or 181% to $6.0 million from $2.1 million in 2011. Fourth Quarter 2012 Highlights: o35% Test Volume Growth o16% Revenue Growth o36% Increase in Adjusted EBITDA oNet Loss of $113K, or ($0.00) per Share Revenue for the fourth quarter 2012 was $14.9 million, a $2.0 million or 16% increase over fourth quarter 2011 revenue on test volume growth of 35%. Gross profit increased to $6.5 million, a 10% increase from the fourth quarter 2011. Total operating expenses increased by $780,000 or 14% from last year's fourth quarter, primarily as a result of a $320,000 increase in R&D expenditures related to new test development and increased personnel and depreciation expense. Net loss for the quarter was ($113,000), or ($0.00) per share, versus net income of 152,000, or $0.00 per share in last year's fourth quarter. Adjusted EBITDA improved 36% to $1.4 million versus $1.1 million in the prior year. Douglas M. VanOort, the Company's Chairman and CEO commented, "We are very proud of our full-year 2012 results. Our industry-leading 50% growth in test volume indicates that we are clearly winning market share. Although the TC Grandfather expiration reduced revenue by $2.6 million in the second half of the year, we were still able to increase revenue by $16 million or 38% versus 2011 with just 18 sales representatives. As importantly, productivity and process improvements allowed us to grow Adjusted EBITDA by 181% versus 2011, or almost five times the revenue growth rate, and post a modest profit for the year. Our team did a phenomenal job of delivering outstanding service, attracting new clients, reducing costs, and introducing important new tests. We believe we can continue to make progress in each of these important areas in 2013." Mr. VanOort continued, "We are also proud of our 4^th quarter results. We continued to make substantial improvements in lab productivity and operating efficiency in the quarter and came very close to returning to quarterly profitability. Lab productivity increased by 15% and Adjusted EBITDA grew by 36% from last year's fourth quarter. The improvements were also significant compared with Quarter 3, 2012 as we reduced our net loss by $800,000 with only a $700,000 increase in revenue." Mr. VanOort concluded, "We are particularly proud of the level of innovation and new test development that we are accomplishing. In 2012, we introduced 29 new molecular tests, most of which use bi-directional Sanger sequencing, and built our molecular test menu to be one of the most comprehensive in the lab industry. We also launched 10-color flow cytometry and became the first lab in the country to offer this exciting new service on both a global and tech-only basis. In addition, we vastly improved our immunohistochemistry offering with dozens of new antibodies and brought up a new digital imaging platform. We also continued to expand our comprehensive FISH menu with several new test offerings including a promising new test to aid in the diagnosis of Barrett's Esophagus. We expect these new tests to drive substantial growth in 2013, and we expect that continued R&D investments will result in the commercialization of a number of new and innovative genetic tests." 2013 Financial Outlook The Company also issued preliminary guidance for the full year and fiscal first quarter of 2013 today. For the full year 2013, the Company expects revenue of $68 - $73 million and net income of $0.03 - $0.05 per share. For the fiscal first quarter, the Company expects revenue of $15.3 - $16.0 million and net income of $0.00 to $0.01 per share. This guidance is based on organic growth in the current business and is based on the assumption that there will be no material reimbursement changes during the balance of 2013. The Company reserves the right to adjust this guidance at any time based on the ongoing execution of its business plan. Current and prospective investors are encouraged to perform their own due diligence before buying or selling any of the Company's securities, and are reminded that the foregoing estimates should not be construed as a guarantee of future performance. ____________________ Adjusted EBITDA is defined as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, other extraordinary or non-recurring charges, such as the costs related to moving our California facility and non-cash stock-based compensation expenses.

NeoGenomics believes that Adjusted EBITDA provides a more consistent measurement of operating performance and trends across reporting periods by excluding these cash and non-cash items of expense not directly related to ongoing operations from income. Adjusted EBITDA also assists investors in performing analysis that is consistent with financial models developed by research analysts. Adjusted EBITDA as defined by NeoGenomics is not a measurement under GAAP and may differ from non-GAAP measures used by other companies. There are limitations inherent in non-GAAP financial measures such as Adjusted EBITDA because they exclude a variety of charges and credits that are required to be included in a GAAP presentation, and do not therefore present the full measure of NeoGenomics recorded costs against its net revenue. Accordingly, investors should consider non-GAAP results together with GAAP results in analyzing NeoGenomics financial performance. NeoGenomics, Inc.
