RUTHERFORD, N.J., March 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cancer Genetics, Inc.
(Nasdaq:CGIX) ("CGI" or the "Company"), a DNA-based diagnostics company
focused on developing genomic-based oncology tests and services, reported
financial results for the 2013 fiscal year and for the fourth quarter ended
December 31, 2013. Revenue for the fourth quarter was $1.9 million, an
increase of 72%, compared to 2012 fourth quarter revenue of $1.1 million. Full
year 2013 revenue was $6.6 million, an increase of 54%, compared to full-year
2012 revenue of $4.3 million. During 2013, 10,771 tests were reported to
physicians, pathologists, cancer centers and biotech and pharma customers, up
63% from 6,610 tests during 2012.

"We experienced strong revenue growth in 2013, driven in large part by the
ongoing adoption of CGI's unique tests and comprehensive approach to
disease-specific oncology testing. During Q4 we scaled up our commercial teams
in order to develop a wider footprint of clinical sales professionals, and we
expanded our pipeline into areas of high unmet need, including renal and
cervical cancers," said Panna Sharma, CGI's president and chief executive
officer. "We look forward to accelerating growth during 2014 due to our
improved sales and marketing infrastructure and our robust, targeted portfolio
of unique cancer tests for blood-borne and urogenital cancers. We are also on
track in advancing our own next-generation sequencing programs and those in
our joint-venture, Oncospire Genomics™ with Mayo Clinic."

Operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 were $3.2 million, inclusive
of $0.8 million in stock based compensation expense. This compares with
operating expenses of $1.9 million during the fourth quarter of 2012,
inclusive of $0.1 million in stock based compensation. The fourth quarter
increase in operating expenses was driven by increases in headcount,
professional fees and other costs of being public. Net loss was $2.5 million
in the fourth quarter, or $0.31 per basic share and $0.37 per diluted share,
compared with a net loss of $4.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2012. The
Q4-2013 net loss included $0.3 million in interest expense. Interest expense
is expected to decrease by over 85% starting in the second quarter of 2014 as
a result of the completion of the amortization of the loan guarantee and
financing fees.

For the full year, operating expenses were $10.1 million, inclusive of $1.2
million in stock-based compensation expense, compared to $8.0 million in 2012,
inclusive of $0.9 million in stock-based compensation expense. The increase in
operating expenses during 2013 includes one-time costs of $0.8 million related
to the IPO. Operating losses for the full year 2013 were $8.5 million as
compared to $7.6 million during 2012. Net loss for the full year was $12.4
million, or $2.65 per basic share and $3.64 per diluted share. The loss
includes $2.4 million in interest expense.

At December 31, 2013, the company had $49.5 million of cash and cash
equivalents as a result of completing three public financings, including a
successful IPO and two follow-on offerings raising a total of approximately
$61.5 million net of offering costs.
