MDxHealth Provides Q3-2021 Business Update
IRVINE, CA, and HERSTAL, BELGIUM – October 21, 2021 – MDxHealth SA (Euronext: MDXH.BR) (“MDxHealth” or the “Company”), a commercial-stage precision diagnostics company, today provided a business update for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.
Michael K. McGarrity, CEO of MDxHealth, commented: “As communicated in our midyear results in August, we remain firmly committed and focused on the execution of our growth strategy, despite the continued challenges presented by the virulent COVID-19 Delta variant. Services revenue in the third quarter of 2021 increased by 23% compared to Q3-2020, and ConfirmMDx units, though still impacted in this quarter by the pandemic, were up 5% from the same period last year. Despite the unavoidable challenges presented by the resurgent pandemic and its impact on screenings and patient flow, MDxHealth’s strong business fundamentals and emphasis on focus and execution remain unchanged.
I would also like to communicate the following evidence of our path forward to sustainable growth and value creation:
- Our SelectMDx test has been included in the National Cancer Center Network (NCCN) Guidelines and a draft Local Coverage Determination (LCD) issued by Medicare.
- Our commercial sales team has been engaged in driving adoption of and compliance to our diagnostic pathway for prostate cancer.
- Our R&D focus on expansion of our menu into Active Surveillance would allow MDxHealth to be the only company in the diagnostic space to take a patient from elevated PSA all the way through the diagnostic and treatment pathway.
- We have introduced our first channel opportunity targeted into our urology customer base with a urinary tract infection (UTI) test to provide broad clinically actionable results for both organism identification and drug susceptibility, and are encouraged by our initial introduction.
- Finally, we remain committed to prudent financial stewardship and operating discipline.”
Results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021
- Total revenue of $5.5 million, up 23% from $4.5 million in Q3-2020
- ConfirmMDx unit growth of 5% compared to Q3-2020
- SelectMDx unit decline of 1% compared to Q3-2020
- Cash and cash equivalents of $24.7 million as of September 30, 2021
