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."

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.

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.
