Predictive Oncology Reports Financial Results for Quarter Ended June 30, 2021, and Provides Business Update

MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Predictive Oncology (Nasdaq: POAI), a knowledge-driven company focused on applying artificial intelligence (“AI”) to personalized medicine and drug discovery, today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021, and provided an update on business activities.

Q2 2021 Highlights:

  • Net proceeds of $19.4 million from registered direct equity offering, contributing to a cash balance of $44.9 million on June 30, 2021, compared to $3.4 million for the same period in 2020.
  • Total Stockholders’ Equity increased $50.4 million to $53.1 million as of June 30, 2021, compared to $2.6 million on December 31, 2020.
  • Predictive subsidiary TumorGenesis partners with Swedish firm Cellevate AB, a collaboration designed to help give researchers next-generation tools to build treatments for difficult diseases.
  • Subsidiaries TumorGenesis and Soluble Biotech announce construction of GMP facilities expected to be completed by year end, allowing an expansion of their unique services to better meet the needs of their growing customer bases.
  • Introduced Dr. Christina Jenkins, MD, strategic advisor and venture investor with expertise in clinical medicine, health systems, and health plans as its newest board member.

“We are pleased with the progress our business segments are making as we conclude the first full year of operations for Soluble Biotech,” commented J. Melville Engle, Predictive Oncology Chief Executive Officer. “Soluble and TumorGenesis’ new GMP facilities are slated for completion by the end of 2021, which we expect will drive revenue growth opportunities as we meet the needs of researchers who are exploring ways to use the cancer cell’s own mechanisms to produce a target, expressed protein or biological target.”

“Predictive Oncology believes the results from this quarter show growth opportunities in our business segments, consistent with our goals and business objectives, and with even greater potential in the future. As we look towards the latter half of the year, we are confident that we will retain this trajectory as we invest in our people and our product offerings, supporting pharmaceutical companies to deliver more targeted approaches to therapy, increasing our footprint in this space and bringing value to our shareholders.”

Q2 2021 Financial results

The Company recorded revenue of $350,207 for the quarter, compared to $182,784 for the same quarter in 2020. G&A expenses decreased $1.13 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared to 2020.

During the three months ended June 30, 2021, revenue increased to $350,207, an increase of approximately 92% from the previous year quarter. This included $34,910 from the Soluble reportable segment, the largest ever quarter in terms of revenue for that segment.

The gross profit margin was approximately 59% in the three ended June 30, 2021 compared to 53% in the prior year. Gross profit margins increased in the second quarter ofthe current year as costs were lower.

Operations expense increased by $46,680 to $567,796 in the three months ended June 30, 2021 compared to 2020, primarily due to higher costs related to staff and higher AI computing costs, partially offset by lower consulting expenses.

The Company’s sales and marketing expenses increased by $26,773 for the quarter to $159,788 compared to the same period in 2020, a direct result of commission expenditures in the Skyline Medical business, which itself saw an increase in revenue of $132,398 over the previous year quarter.

Net cash used in operating activities was $5,526,978 and $6,721,084 for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and June 30, 2020, respectively. Cash used in operating activities decreased in the 2021 period primarily because of the decrease in cash used for working capital and the lower operating costs related to the Helomics and Skyline business.

Net cash provided by financing activities was $50,363,456 and $9,874,355 for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and June 30, 2020, respectively. The cash provided in the six months ended June 30, 2021 was primarily due to proceeds from issuance of common stock and warrants in six financing transactions and the exercise of warrants by investors, in addition to proceeds from the issuance of common stock pursuant to the equity line agreement, offset by the repayment of outstanding debt, all of which are discussed in the Company’s 10-Q filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
