  • Expansion of the Company’s billing department, significantly improving cash collections

Research & Development Highlights

Post-Period Events

Dr. Jan Groen, CEO of MDxHealth, commented: “We are pleased to see that our strong focus on securing favorable reimbursement from US commercial payers and expanding our billing department is paying off with increased revenues this half.  While this focus, as well as the adverse weather conditions in northeastern US, has also impacted our ConfirmMDx volume growth in H1, we are now better positioned to grow test volumes in line with revenues.  Following our successful equity placement in June, we have already expanded our direct sales team by 50% with the goal to spur case volume growth for the second half of this year.

“In line with our strategy to expand the clinical utility of our current cancer identification solutions and expand the Company’s test portfolio to address a broader segment of the urology market, we have been delighted to present strong data on ConfirmMDx Prostate Cancer at two prestigious conferences, demonstrating the potential of ConfirmMDx to identify clinically significant prostate cancer.  The development of non-invasive “liquid biopsy” testing solutions is also a key focus for the Company’s future test portfolio and we look forward to presenting the positive data from the Company’s trial for early non-invasive identification of bladder cancer at the World Congress on Urological Research in September.” 


Key Figures for the first half (thousands of U.S. dollars, except number of shares and per share data):

As of June 30, 2015 First half year 2015 First half year 2014 % Change
Total revenues 7,860 4,804 63.6%
Total operating expenses 10,499 10,434 0.6%
EBITDA (Loss) -5,277 -7,932 -33.5%
Operating profit (EBIT) -5,475 -8,086 -32.3%
Net loss -5,484 -8,043 -31.8%
Earnings per share, basic ($) -0.12 -0.23 -47.8%
Number of outstanding shares 43,998,490 34,251,303 28.4%
Cash and cash equivalents 40,444 12,709 218.2%


Total revenues rose 64% to $7.9 million in H1 2015, compared to $4.8 million in H1 2014.  Revenue from ConfirmMDx sales increased 77%, to $6.9 million in H1 2015 compared to $3.9 million in H1 2014. ConfirmMDx represented 87% of the overall revenue mix in H1 2015, as compared to 81% in the same period last year. Revenue recognition of ConfirmMDx sales continue to improve as positive coverage decisions from commercial payors are obtained, Medicare and Medicare Advantage reimbursements have increased, and overall 3rd party and patient collections have improved.  Continued investments in sales and revenue cycle infrastructure have been important to revenue growth. 

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses for H1 2015 were $10.4 million, the same as H1 2014. This was attributable to balanced spending with continued build-up of the U.S. commercial operations in support of the ConfirmMDx for Prostate Cancer test, offset by lower expensed R&D costs resulting from the capitalization of allowed development costs.


Consistent with the trend of lowering losses since 2014 H1 2015 loss narrowed over the same period in 2014 due to higher revenues, helped by stable expenses. The Company’s operating loss (EBIT) decreased by 32% in H1 2015.

Cash Position: MDxHealth ended the first half of 2015 with cash and cash equivalents of $40.4 million compared to $12.7 million on June 30, 2014. The increase is primarily a result of the June 2015 capital increase.

Q3 and FY2015 Outlook

The Company maintains its guidance for the full year 2015, with projected revenues expected to be between $16 and $20 million and ConfirmMDx case volumes between 15,000 and 17,000.  We anticipate continued growth in case volume, cash collections and revenue will be supported by the Company’s expanded managed care, billing and sales departments. At the date of this release, daily average case volumes have already strengthened from H1 levels, reflecting early efforts from our recent and continuing sales force expansion. Additionally, our newly hired CMO Dr. Philip Ginsburg will be important in supporting the managed care team, sales force and the Company’s strategy to gain entry into clinical guidelines.  

Completing enrollment of 600 patients in the PASCUAL trial ahead of schedule was a significant accomplishment in H1 and demonstrates the support for the assay among the urology community.  The study is on track for completion in early 2017 as originally planned.  It is important to note that data from the PASCUAL interim analysis is shared only with Palmetto GBA on a confidential basis under its MolDX program, and will not be published as this would bias the long-term outcome of this pivotal trial.  We continue to work collaboratively with Palmetto GBA to help establish the groundbreaking pathway to Coverage with Data Development (CDD).  In parallel with the PASCUAL trial, our ConfirmMDx Certification and Training Registry is fully implemented and accepting Medicare patients not enrolled in PASCUAL.

Statutory Auditor’s Limited Review Report: We have reviewed the accompanying interim consolidated statement of financial position of MDxHealth SA as of 30 June 2015 and the related interim consolidated statements of comprehensive income, cash flows and changes in equity for the six-month period then ended, as well as the explanatory notes. The Board of Directors is responsible for the preparation and presentation of this consolidated interim financial information in accordance with IAS 34 “Interim Financial Reporting”, as adopted by the European Union. Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on this consolidated interim financial information based on our review.

We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review Engagements 2410, “Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity”. A review of interim financial information consists of making inquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with International Standards on Auditing and consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the accompanying consolidated interim financial information is not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with IAS 34 “Interim Financial Reporting”, as adopted by the European Union.
