Second Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Total revenue increased by 18.8 percent to $6.7 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011, compared to $5.6 million for the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to increases in pharmaceutical service revenues of $1.6 million. Revenue from ResponseDX™ genetic tests decreased by 15 percent to $3.0 million for the second quarter, compared to $3.5 million for the same period in 2010. The decrease in ResponseDX™ revenue was artificially caused by the one-time revenue adjustment of $1.5 million recorded in the second quarter of 2010 for the adoption of the accrual basis of accounting. Pharmaceutical client revenue increased 74.4 percent to $3.7 million, compared to $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2010.

Cost of revenue was $2.8 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2011, compared with $2.5 million for the same period in 2010. Research and development expenses were $0.2 million for the second quarter of 2011, compared with $0.4 million for the same period in 2010.

The primary reasons for the increase in total operating expenses are costs related to an increase in personnel, consulting, bad debt, and billing service expenses.
