Report For: OpGen, Inc. (NASDAQ: OPGN)
OPGN shares are up 55% today at $1.84 per share. Trading volume, normally very thin, is over 300,000 shares at the noon hour.
On May 12, OpGen Inc. (NASDAQ: OPGN) announced the pricing of a $10 million private placement. The numbers are one thing, but more important is what OpGen intends to do with the capital. The vast majority is earmarked to support the sales and marketing efforts of the company’s diagnostics products. No company, biotech or otherwise, raises equity-based capital specifically to drive sales efforts if it doesn’t believe there is a thriving market for the product. That OpGen has picked now to raise in order to spend on marketing, and that markets have been responsive to its issue, is indicative of recovery

GAITHERSBURG, Md., May 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OpGen, Inc. (OPGN), a precision medicine company using molecular diagnostics and bioinformatics to combat infectious disease, today reported financial and operational results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.
Total revenue for the first quarter of 2016 was $1.1 million, compared with $0.5 million for the first quarter of 2015, a 128% increase. Revenue from product sales increased to $0.9 million compared with $0.2 million for the first quarter of 2015. The increase was attributable to sales of rapid pathogen ID molecular diagnostic products following the company’s acquisition of AdvanDx in July 2015 and Acuitas MDRO products and services. Gross margin on product sales was 63.5% for the first quarter of 2016, compared with 37.3% in the first quarter of 2015. Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2016 were $5.6 million compared with $3.0 million for the first quarter of 2015. The net loss available to common stockholders for the first quarter of 2016 was $4.5 million, or $0.36 per share, compared with a net loss available to common stockholders for the first quarter of 2015 of $2.8 million, or $5.61 per share. The company had cash and cash equivalents of $4.0 million as of March 31, 2016, compared with $7.8 million as of December 31, 2015. Subsequent to the close of the quarter, OpGen entered into a securities purchase agreement related to a private placement financing with gross proceeds of approximately $10.4 million.
“During the first quarter of 2016 and recent weeks we made excellent progress in building and enhancing our growing portfolio of molecular information products and services,” said Evan Jones, chairman and chief executive officer of OpGen. “We achieved meaningful revenue growth from both product sales and laboratory services with the addition of the AdvanDx rapid diagnostic products and CLIA laboratory service revenues derived from clinical MDRO surveillance testing. Completing an important milestone and the first citywide quantification of multidrug-resistant organisms in the U.S, we successfully deployed our Acuitas Lighthouse MDRO management platform, including Lighthouse informatics, web portals, and Acuitas MDRO gene tests in a pilot study at 16 hospitals in the District of Columbia.”
Key developments from the first quarter of 2016 and recent weeks included:
Completed testing and reported results on more than 1,000 patient samples from 16 hospitals in the District of Columbia in conjunction with the DCHA (District of Columbia Hospital Association) program to track the threat of potentially lethal multidrug-resistant infections in Washington, D.C. – results support continued surveillance for Superbug pathogens including carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE)
Completed phase 1 of a health outcomes initiative with a large integrated health network including retrospective analysis of over 3 million health records to demonstrate the scope and costs of MDROs to patients and healthcare providers and also to support the potential implementation of OpGen’s molecular information solutions
Entered into a securities purchase agreement to raise approximately $10.4 million, with the first closing expected to occur on Monday May 16, 2016
Previewed automated QuickFISH Digital Imager at the 26th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID)
Researchers presented two papers at ECCMID describing rapid test results with QuickFISH and its utility in antibiotic stewardship
Published analytical validation results for the Acuitas MDRO Gene Test in Clinical Chemistry and obtained Florida CLIA license
Added four highly-accomplished scientific professionals to the company’s clinical advisory board
Appointed Harry J. D’Andrea to the company’s board of directors
Mr. Tim Dec, the company’s chief financial officer added, “With continued progress developing and successfully deploying our molecular diagnostic and bioinformatics products and services, our growing revenue base and our recent equity offering we are continuing to build the foundation for a successful 2016 and beyond.”
Multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs) are common bacteria that have developed resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics. They are a leading cause of hospital-acquired infections and are associated with an increase in morbidity and mortality. Each year more than 2 million Americans acquire infections that are resistant to antibiotics and about 23,000 people die from them. The annual cost of treating these infections is estimated to be between $20 billion to $35 billion. Asymptomatic carriers are at a higher risk of an MDRO infection and become reservoirs for transmission to other patients in health care systems if not accurately identified early. Since there are many types of antibiotic-resistant organisms, and the way they cause disease is dictated by their genetics, knowing the exact genetic profile of these organisms is a key step to preventing their ability to infect.
OpGen, Inc. is developing and deploying precision medicine tools to combat infectious disease in healthcare settings worldwide, helping clinicians improve patient outcomes by providing more rapid information about life-threatening infections and decreasing the spread of infections caused by multidrug-resistant microorganisms. OpGen offers a full portfolio of in vitro diagnostic products and clinical laboratory services that employ state-of-the-art molecular diagnostics and bioinformatics. Its QuickFISH® products are a suite of FDA-cleared and CE-marked diagnostics used to rapidly detect pathogens in positive blood cultures. Clinical laboratory services utilize the Acuitas® MDRO products, including the MDRO Gene Test, the Resistome Test, microbial Whole Genome Sequence Analysis and Acuitas Lighthouse™ bioinformatics platform, to detect, type, track and trend antibiotic resistant organisms in real-time.
