Response Genetics, Inc. Announces Year-End And Fourth Quarter Financial Results

Stocks in this article: RGDX

Excluding cost of revenue, total operating expenses for the fourth quarter were $5.2 million, compared to $4.6 million for the comparable period in 2010. The increase in total operating expenses of $0.6 million was due to an increase in general and administrative expenses of $0.5 million and research and development expenses of $0.2 million, offset by a decrease in sales and marketing expenses of $0.1 million. The increase in general and administrative expenses was due to increases in bad debt expense ( see paragraph below), legal expenses, recruiting costs and IT and business consulting expenses.

During the fourth quarter of 2011, the Company refined its model of estimating an allowance for doubtful accounts using historical collection percentages and a combination of objective and subjective factors. Consequently, the Company increased its bad debt expense for the year ended December 31, 2011 to $1.3 million. Had the Company continued under the specific write-off method, its bad debt expense would have been approximately $0.7 million in 2011.

Cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2011, were $1.7 million, compared to $4.1 million at December 31, 2010. As previously disclosed, the Company completed a capital raise in February 2012 resulting in gross proceeds of approximately $7.8 million at a 27 percent premium to the then current stock price.
