Co-Diagnostics, Inc. (Nasdaq: CODX), a molecular diagnostics company with a unique, patented platform for the development of molecular diagnostic tests, announced today the filing of its operating results on SEC Form 10-Q for the 3 month period ending March 31, 2019 and provided updates on corporate developments.

Q1 2019 Financial Results:

  • Revenue for the quarter totaled $3,400; however, the Company’s Joint Venture in India also recognized approximately $56,000 in revenue from the sale of the Company’s primers and probes, which is anticipated to represent the beginning of sales in the joint venture.
  • The Company ended the quarter with cash and equivalents of $5.42 million and no long-term debt. This followed the sale of $3 million of preferred shares in January 2019 (which consisted of negotiating the conversion of a $2M note to preferred stock, and an additional sale of $1M of preferred shares for cash) leaving the Company debt-free.
  • The Company completed a registered direct offering in the quarter pursuant to its S-3 shelf registration and sold 3,925,716 common shares, realizing gross proceeds of approximately $5.5 million.
  • Total liabilities and shareholder’s equity at the end of the quarter was $6.12 million, compared with $1.55 million at the end of the previous quarter.
  • The Company reported a net loss for the quarter of $1,368,389 compared with a net loss for the same quarter in 2018 of $1,310,233. Of the increase in net loss of $58,156, $29,687 was primarily the result of the increased operating expenses for sales/marketing and R&D (itself offset by a substantial decrease in general and administrative expenses), and the remainder resulted from a loss on extinguishment of debt and interest expense partially offset by a decrease in the loss on investment related to the joint venture.

Management Discussion

Dwight Egan, Chairman and CEO of Co-Diagnostics, commented, “We are pleased to report that our momentum has continued throughout the first quarter of 2019. Co-Diagnostics closed the quarter on substantially stronger financial footing than it began, and showed a marked improvement from the same quarter last year as well. This is evident in the first sales from our joint venture in India, complete elimination of long-term debt, and a healthy balance sheet to support our existing revenue-producing initiatives and product development pipeline.

“This momentum is also evident in our technology and regulatory milestones. In Q1 the Company received the CE mark for our highly specific Zika/dengue/chikungunya multiplex assay, built on our patented CoPrimer™ platform to address the needs of areas where those diseases are found to occur together but are often misdiagnosed. More recently we announced the patent filing for our next-generation sequencing technology that will reduce NGS preparation and hands-on user time, in an innovative PCR application that the Company anticipates should provide near-term revenue opportunities in the US and abroad.

“The Company’s CoPrimer platform was featured at the PAG XXVII Conference in January 2019, which coincided with the announcement of the first private label CoPrimer product, manufactured and marketed by an international leader in the life sciences sector. The manufacturer has since launched the product in a world-wide marketing campaign, which we believe affords us the opportunity to expand the footprint of CoPrimers to the manufacturer’s domestic and international client base.

“In addition to the Company’s progress in AgBio, infectious disease, and liquid biopsy, this quarter saw strong demand for our mosquito vector products following the first distributor conference hosted in our facilities. The conference was well-attended by distributors of Co-Diagnostics’ products, and government, environmental testing and private laboratory customers. The Company looks forward to making announcements in the near future related to product roll-outs and sales agreements.

“We expect our financial strength and technological and regulatory advancements to continue to drive sales growth both domestically and in India—where the joint venture manufacturing facility was recently inaugurated—throughout this current quarter and beyond.”
