IRVINE, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 10, 2023 / Oncocyte Corporation (NASDAQ:OCX), a precision diagnostics company, today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2023, ended June 30, 2023.

Second Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Transplant product launch on pace for Q4 early access. Manufacturing transfer process for 48-target universal assay began in June
  • Expanding clinical utility for VitaGraft Kidney, a recent peer-reviewed publication in Kidney International Reports showed ability to identify ABMR and differentiate it from IgA Nephropathy
  • Landmark randomized triple negative breast cancer study of DetermaIO in patients treated with Keytruda in the adjuvant setting continues to progress
  • Cash, cash equivalents, and marketable securities totaled $17.9 million at June 30, 2023, with average cash burn projected to drop below $5 million a quarter in 2 H HH 2023

"In the second quarter, we made significant progress towards the development and manufacturing of our Transplant product for institutions conducting research on the use of cfDNA monitoring post-transplantation," said Josh Riggs, CEO of Oncocyte. "We look forward to serving the global transplant community with our patented technology and expect to meet our target of early access launch by the end of this year. On the clinical front, our transplant and oncology laboratory tests continue their review process with MolDX as they are evaluated for potential coverage. Amongst the potential coverage decisions, ongoing clinical studies and operational improvements, we believe that Oncocyte is positioned for success with several value creating milestones achievable in the second half of this year."

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Consolidated revenues for the second quarter of 2023 were approximately $0.5 million, and cost of revenues for the second quarter were approximately $0.2 million, primarily from services customers.

Net consolidated operating loss for the three months ended June 30, 2023, was $8.3 million, compared to consolidated operating loss of $8.6 million, a decrease of $0.3 million from the same period in the prior year.

Consolidated research and development expense for the second quarter decreased 56% year-over-year from $5.6 million to $2.4 million driven by focused investment in developing manufacturable versions of our assays.

Consolidated general and administrative expense for the second quarter decreased 36% year-over-year from $5.5 million to $3.5 million, reflecting management's efforts to control spending not directly related to product development or commercial activities.

Consolidated sales and marketing expense for the second quarter decreased 77% year over year from $3.5 million to $0.8 million. We focused on our early access programs and early market access work for our laboratory tests and research products.

For Oncocyte's complete financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023, see the Company's Quarterly Form 10-Q to be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Aug 10, 2023.
