BRISBANE, Calif., Aug. 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CareDx, Inc. (Nasdaq:CDNA) a molecular diagnostics company focused on the development and commercialization of clinically differentiated, high value, non-invasive surveillance solutions for transplant recipients today reported financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.
- Closing an initial public offering in July 2014, resulting in net proceeds to the Company of $35.5 million;
- AlloMap, the Company's molecular diagnostic surveillance solution, was used for heart transplant patients more than 3,000 times in the second quarter of 2014, representing 20% year-over-year growth and a new quarterly record;
- Second quarter revenues of $6.8 million, representing 24% growth over the same period of 2013, and also a CareDx quarterly record;
- Launch of the D-OAR (Donor-derived cell-free DNA Outcomes AlloMap Registry) clinical trial, which provides a research use only diagnostic tool to help clinicians and scientists investigate the use of cell-free (cf) DNA technology for heart transplant recipients;
- Published results demonstrating that graft-derived cfDNA in the bloodstream correlates to acute cellular rejection in kidney and heart transplant recipients, further supporting the Company's development initiatives.
"As a result of significant AlloMap volume growth in the second quarter of 2014, revenues grew 24% over the prior year," said President and Chief Executive Officer, Peter Maag. "The past several months have been transformational for CareDx. With the success of the recent IPO, our strengthened balance sheet enables us to build on the momentum we have gained with our AlloMap surveillance solution for heart transplant patients and to pursue our development pipeline for cfDNA tests for heart and kidney transplant patients. The CareDx team is committed to driving forward the initiatives we laid out in order to create both short and long-term value for our shareholders."
Second Quarter Financial Results
Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2014 increased 24% to $6.8 million, from $5.5 million in the same period of the prior year. U.S. AlloMap revenue accounted for nearly all of the revenue in the quarter, as volume increased 20% year-over-year.
Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2014 were $7.1 million, an increase of 25% compared to the second quarter of 2013. Operating loss for the second quarter was $345,000. However, the second quarter of 2014 included one-time expenses of $750,000 associated with the legal, accounting and consulting fees of the ImmuMetrix acquisition. Without these expenses, the Company would have shown an operating profit of $405,000.
For the second quarter of 2014, net income was $877,000 and basic net income per share was $.87, primarily resulting from a one-time income tax benefit of $1.5 million, also resulting from the acquisition of ImmuMetrix in June 2014. Net loss for the comparable period in 2013 was $802,000 or ($0.79) per basic and diluted share. Cash and cash equivalents were $7.9 million as of June 30, 2014. Subsequent to June 30, the Company completed its initial public offering raising proceeds of approximately $35.5 million, after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other issuance costs.
CareDx expects revenue for the full year of 2014 to be in the range of $26 to $26.5 million.

These forward-looking statements are based upon information that is currently available to us and our current expectations, speak only as of the date hereof, and are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including risks relating to our development and commercialization of additional diagnostic solutions, which is a lengthy and complex process that may not be successful, our dependence on the sales of one test, AlloMap, for substantially all of our current revenue, our dependence on Medicare for a substantial portion of our revenue, our dependence on health insurers and other third-party payers to provide coverage for our current test and future tests, if any, risks of increased competition from other market participants, many of whom have substantially greater resources than us, and risks relating to our intellectual property position and infringement claims from third parties that could be time-consuming and costly to defend and could preclude us from operating our business.
