CARLSBAD, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- GenMark Diagnostics, Inc. (Nasdaq:GNMK), a leading provider of automated, multiplex molecular diagnostic testing systems, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2014.
As previously released on July 28th, revenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 were $6.6 million compared with $5.2 million during the second quarter of 2013. Revenue during the current quarter from the Company’s base business, which excludes revenue attributable to former customer NMTC, increased by 71% over the prior year period. Consumable revenue for the second quarter 2014 increased 35% to $6.2 million compared with $4.6 million in the quarter ended June 30, 2013 and increased by 92% over the prior year’s base business. As disclosed in its July release, the Company placed 31 net new analyzers during the current quarter to bring its total installed base to 475, all in end-user laboratories within the U.S. market.
“Continued strong demand for our proprietary eSensor® detection technology drove robust revenue growth in the quarter. We are pleased with this clear market endorsement of our eSensor® technology, which is also fundamental to our ePlex™ sample to answer system. During the second quarter, we completed development of the ePlex™ instrument, and also progressed the associated consumable and several assay panels to the final stages of development. As we stated previously, we expect to complete development of our ePlex™ system by the end of this year,” stated GenMark’s President & CEO, Hany Massarany.
Gross profit for the quarter ended June 30, 2014 was $3.4 million, or 51% of revenue, compared with a gross profit of $2.0 million, or 39% of revenue for the second quarter of 2013.
Operating expenses increased $4.5 million to $14.6 million during the second quarter of 2014 compared with the second quarter of 2013. Research and Development expenses increased $3.1 million due to the Company’s ePlex™ instrument and assay development activities. Sales and Marketing expenses increased $0.8 million mainly due to continued expansion of the Company’s global commercial sales force ahead of the launch of ePlex™. General and Administrative expenses increased $0.6 million primarily due to personnel costs.
Loss per share was $0.27 for the second quarter of 2014, compared with a loss per share of $0.25 in the second quarter of 2013.
The Company ended the second quarter of 2014 with $89.4 million in cash and investments. The Company intends to continue utilizing its cash balances to invest in the development of its ePlex™ system and for infrastructure improvements and general corporate purposes.
The Company also increased its full year 2014 guidance. Total year revenue and gross margin are expected to be approximately $28.0 million and approximately 50%, respectively.
