Conference call with Q&A today at 19:00 CET / 1PM US ET, details provided below
IRVINE, CA, and HERSTAL, BELGIUM – August 26, 2021 – MDxHealth SA (Euronext: MDXH.BR), a commercial-stage precision diagnostics company, today announced its financial results for the half year ended June 30, 2021.
Michael K. McGarrity, CEO of MDxHealth, commented: “We are encouraged by our positive progress in the first half of 2021. Our results reflect our confidence that the key fundamentals of our business are in place and will drive sustained growth for MDxHealth.
“We believe this progress is evidenced by the following:
- Publication of draft foundational Local Coverage Determination (LCD) for Biomarkers to Stratify Patients at Increased Risk for Prostate Cancer by Palmetto GBA under its MolDx program, which cites evidence of the clinical utility of SelectMDx® and, when finalized, is expected to support coverage for qualified Medicare patients throughout the United States;
- Third consecutive quarter of sequential increases in billable volume for our ConfirmMDx® test, second consecutive quarter of sequential increases in billable volume for our SelectMDx® test;
- Improvement in collections and capital allocation, supported by continued focus on operating discipline; and
- Advancement of development programs to expand our Prostate Cancer menu into Active Surveillance.
“In addition to positive results for our menu of SelectMDx and ConfirmMDx, at the conclusion of the half year, we made a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) diagnostic panel available to a limited number of urology practices, as our first channel opportunity into urology, where approximately 20% of the 10 million UTI patients present in the U.S. annually. As we have stated, we have restructured our sales and overall commercial team to not only drive growth of our core and expanding prostate cancer menu, but to also take advantage of additional opportunities to serve our customer base and leverage this channel.”
Highlights for the half year and quarter ended June 30, 2021
- H1-2021 services revenue of $10.5 million, up 9% as compared to $9.6 million in H1-2020; Q2-2021 services revenue up 43% from Q2-2020
- H1-2021 ConfirmMDx billable test volume increased 4% to 7,978 versus 7,662 for the same period last year; Q2-2021 up 30% from Q2-2020 and 4% sequentially from Q1-2021
- H1-2021 SelectMDx billable test volume increased 9% to 7,051 versus 6,462 for the same period last year; Q2-2021 up 82% from Q2-2020 and 16% sequentially from Q1-2021
- Cash balance as of June 30, 2021 was $31.3 million; cash use in H1-2021 was $13.1 million, an increase of $0.2 million, or 1%, versus cash use in H1-2020
- Successful financing of €25 million (approximately $30 million), with broad support from U.S. and European investors including continued support from our Reference shareholders, MVM, Valiance and BioVest

Total revenue for the first half of 2021 was $10.7 million compared to total revenue of $9.9 million for the first half of 2020. Revenue from ConfirmMDx and SelectMDx amounted to $10.5 million, an increase of 9% as compared to $9.6 million a year earlier. Revenue from ConfirmMDx represented over 90% of product revenue for all periods.
Gross profit on products and services for the first half of 2021 was $5.2 million as compared to $4.7 million for the first half of 2020. Gross margins on products and services were 48.6% for the first half of 2021 as compared to 47.4% for the same period in 2020, representing a gross margin improvement of 120 basis points.
Operating expenses in the first half of 2021 were $17.7 million, consistent with the same period last year. Excluding non-cash expenses such as depreciation, amortization and stock-based compensation, operating expenses for H1-2021 were $15.7 million, an increase of $0.3 million, or 2%, over H1-2020.
Operating loss and net loss for the first half of 2021 were $12.4 million and $13.3 million, respectively, with losses narrowing compared to $13.0 million and $13.7 million, respectively, over the same period in 2020, for the reasons stated above.
Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2021, were $31.3 million, strengthened by the January 2021 equity raise of €25 million (approximately $30 million). Total cash collections amounted to $10.2 million in H1-2021, a decrease of 11% compared to the same period last year, due to the impact of COVID-19. Cash burn for H1-2021 was $13.1 million compared to $12.9 million in the prior year period.
Michael K. McGarrity, CEO of MDxHealth, commented: “Even amidst the dynamics of the pandemic and its variant strains, as well as the impact on patient flow, we are confident that adoption of SelectMDx and ConfirmMDx as standard of care in the diagnostic pathway of patients at risk for prostate cancer is beginning to take hold and will drive long term growth beyond 2021.
“In addition, we are developing active surveillance (AS) of prostate cancer solutions with our AS-MDx and Monitor-MDx tests. These menu additions would provide clinically actionable results for urologists evaluating cancer patients for consideration of active surveillance, as well as regular monitoring of these patients where the current standard of care is an annual biopsy. This is a well characterized market where a less invasive actionable solution is needed.
“We believe these initiatives, coupled with our current menu, will allow MDxHealth to be uniquely positioned to provide urologists with advanced diagnostics to take a patient from an elevated PSA through the diagnostic continuum of care with clinical confidence.
“Finally, we are excited to extend our menu of precision test offerings into our direct urology channel in the U.S., with a limited introduction of a UTI test. The market for UTI testing is well-defined, with urologists accounting for approximately 20% of the 10 million UTI tests ordered annually. This market is one of the few remaining diagnostic segments that relies on outdated culture methods. A rapid and highly sensitive UTI offering can provide timely and clinically actionable results. We look forward to providing additional visibility to our progress and outlook for this channel expansion opportunity.”
Mr. Timothy Still, Independent Non-Executive Director (serving through Tstill Enterprises LLC), has stepped down from the Board of the Company on July 28, 2021 to pursue other opportunities. The Company thanks Mr. Still for his services and wishes him success in his new endeavors.
