MDxHealth Provides Third Quarter 2012 Business Update

IRVINE, CA and LIEGE, BELGIUM -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- MDxHealth SA (EURONEXT BRUSSELS: MDXH), a leading molecular diagnostic company that develops and commercializes epigenetic tests to support cancer treatment, today published a business update for the third quarter ending September 30, 2012.

Highlights
In Q3 2012, MDxHealth made significant progress across all facets of its business. On July 4, 2012, the company raised EUR 10 million in new equity funding via a private placement. As of September 30, 2012, the company had EUR 13.9 million of cash on hand. Commercial product and service revenues in Q3 increased 142% compared to the same period last year, with total revenues of EUR 2.9 million in the first nine months of 2012, an increase of 90% versus the same period in 2011.

The commercial roll-out of ConfirmMDx™ for Prostate Cancer, launched at the end of May of this year, is advancing according to expectations. In July, MDxHealth signed a collaboration agreement with Merck KGaA for the development and worldwide commercialization of MDxHealth's MGMT diagnostic test, PredictMDx™ for Glioblastoma.

In August, the company received CAP (College of American Pathologists) accreditation, as well as licenses from Florida and Pennsylvania, for its CLIA reference laboratory in Irvine, CA.

"We are very pleased with the acceptance of the ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer test among the US urology community as evidenced by our sales growth. The rising market awareness and adoption of the ConfirmMDx test reflect increasing momentum of our sales and marketing efforts," said Dr. Jan Groen CEO of MDxHealth. "Based on the favorable market reception, it is clear that our epigenetic test provides urologists with valuable information to help address false-negative biopsy concerns with their patients. This early success gives me confidence that ConfirmMDx will also deliver value for the company and its shareholders."

Commercial revenues up 90% for the first 9 months

Revenues
The total revenues for the first nine months of the year amounted to EUR 2.9 million, of which EUR 2.1 million represent commercial revenues, up 90% compared to the same period last year.

Operating Expenses
The company's operating expenses were EUR 9.2 million in the first nine months of 2012, versus EUR 7.3 million in the same period in 2011, as the company continued to invest in the development of its product pipeline and sales and marketing activities in the US.

Cash Position
As of September 30, 2012, MDxHealth had EUR 13.9 million in cash, compared to EUR 12.9 million on September 30, 2011, EUR 1.0 million higher than the same period last year.

Outlook for fourth quarter and FY 2012
In Q4 2012, the company expects to report an increase in commercial product and service revenues compared to previous quarters, primarily due to continuing growth in sales of our ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer test in the US and commercial service revenues from our ongoing PharmacoMDx collaborations with Merck Serono, GSK Biologicals and other partners. The health economic study for the ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer test, providing healthcare providers with important cost comparison data, is scheduled to be submitted for publication. Total operating costs in Q4 are expected to increase due to higher sales and marketing and other operating activities.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information.

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.
