Foundation Medicine Announces 2013 Third Quarter Results
Foundation Medicine, Inc. (NASDAQ:FMI) today announced that 2,577 FoundationOne™ tests were reported to ordering oncologists in the quarter ended September 30, 2013, an increase from the 1,626 reported in the second quarter of 2013. Total revenues increased to $8.2 million for the third quarter of 2013 compared with $5.9 million in the second quarter of 2013. More than half of third quarter revenues were derived from clinical testing. FoundationOne, the company’s initial clinical product, is a fully informative genomic profile used by oncologists to identify a patient’s individual molecular alterations and match them with relevant targeted therapies and clinical trials.
“Results in the third quarter demonstrate the growing enthusiasm in the marketplace for our fully informative genomic profile for use across all solid tumors,” said Michael Pellini, M.D., president and chief executive officer, Foundation Medicine. “We are very encouraged by the commercial traction as the utility of FoundationOne and the information it delivers garners growing recognition among oncologists, pathologists and pharmaceutical companies. In addition, the number of scientific publications generated using our molecular information platform during the quarter continues to underscore its clinical utility and value in the care of patients with cancer.”
Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2013 were $16.5 million, inclusive of $3.0 million in stock-based compensation expense. This compares with total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2013 of $13.7 million, inclusive of $1.3 million in stock-based compensation expense. In addition to stock-based compensation expense, the increase in operating expenses was primarily attributable to the ongoing development of FoundationOne for hematologic malignancies, relocation costs of moving to a new headquarters facility and the growth of our commercial organization.
Net loss was $12.5 million in the third quarter of 2013, inclusive of a $1.3 million warrant remeasurement charge, or a $3.51 loss per basic and diluted share. At September 30, 2013, the company had $138 million of cash, cash equivalents and investments.
