• CNSide™ study data featured in three poster presentations at leading neuro-oncology annual meeting
  • Participates in UCSF investigator-initiated study to better understand the development and progression of metastatic breast cancer to the central nervous system
  • CNSide orders increased 8% over 2Q 2022 and 176% versus 3Q 2021

Conference Call to be held November 28, 2022 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern time

Biocept, Inc. (Nasdaq: BIOC), a leading provider of molecular diagnostic assays, products and services, reports financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and provides a business update.

“Our third quarter financial results reflect solid increases in CNSide orders, up 8% sequentially and 176% year-over-year,” said Samuel D. Riccitelli, Biocept’s Chairman, and interim President and CEO. “We are executing well on our strategy to generate further evidence to secure higher reimbursement for CNSide and support its adoption into clinical care guidelines. The first site in our FORESEE clinical trial is now open for patient enrollment and we expect at least one additional site to be cleared for enrollment in the coming months. We recently announced our participation in an investigator-initiated study with leading breast cancer oncologists at the University of California San Francisco aimed at learning more about how metastatic breast cancer develops and progresses. I’m also pleased that at last week’s Society for Neuro-Oncology annual meeting three posters featuring CNSide were presented by prominent neuro-oncologists.”

Third Quarter Financial Results

Net revenues for the third quarter of 2022 were $5.6 million, which included $4.7 million in RT-PCR COVID-19 test revenue. This compared with net revenues for the third quarter of 2021 of $17.5 million, which included $16.5 million in RT-PCR COVID-19 test revenue.

Biocept accessioned 49,874 commercial samples during the third quarter of 2022, compared with 152,796 commercial samples during the third quarter of 2021, with the decline due primarily to lower RT-PCR COVID-19 testing volume. The average value per commercial accession for the third quarter of 2022 was $111, compared with $114 for the third quarter of 2021, with the decrease due to payor mix.

Cost of revenues for the third quarter of 2022 was $5.8 million, compared with $11.3 million for the prior-year period, with the decrease primarily related to lower RT-PCR COVID-19 testing volume.

Research and development (R&D) expenses for the third quarter of 2022 were $1.4 million compared with $1.3 million for the third quarter of 2021. General and administrative (G&A) expenses for the third quarter of 2022 were $3.0 million, compared with $3.5 million for the third quarter of 2021, with the decrease primarily due to lower stock-based compensation and lower headcount. Sales and marketing expenses for the third quarter of 2022 were $1.0 million, compared with $1.9 million for the third quarter of 2021, with the decrease due primarily to a reduction in sales commissions expense.

Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the third quarter of 2022 was $5.5 million, or ($0.33) per share on 17.0 million weighted-average shares outstanding. This compares with net loss attributable to common stockholders for the third quarter of 2021 of $0.6 million, or ($0.04) per share on 15.4 million weighted-average shares outstanding.

Nine Month Financial Results

Net revenues for the first nine months of 2022 were $36.1 million, compared with $47.3 million for the first nine months of 2021.

Operating expenses for the first nine months of 2022 were $49.5 million, and included cost of revenues of $24.1 million, R&D expenses of $4.9 million, G&A expenses of $14.2 million, of which $3.5 million are non-recurring, and sales and marketing expenses of $6.3 million. Operating expenses for the first nine months of 2021 were $46.9 million, and included cost of revenues of $27.7 million, R&D expenses of $3.5 million, G&A expenses of $9.9 million and sales and marketing expenses of $5.8 million.

Net loss attributable to common stockholders for the first nine months of 2022 was $13.6 million, or ($0.80) per share on 16.9 million weighted-average shares outstanding. This compares with net income attributable to common stockholders for the first nine months of 2021 of $0.1 million, or $0.01 per diluted share on 14.3 million weighted-average shares outstanding.

Biocept reported cash as of September 30, 2022 of $18.0 million, compared with $28.9 million as of December 31, 2021.
