Predictive Technology Group Reports First Quarter Fiscal 2020 Financial Results and Provides Corporate Update

SALT LAKE CITY (November 14, 2019) Predictive Technology Group, Inc. (OTCQX: PRED) (“Predictive” or “The Company”), a leader in the development of genetic and molecular diagnostics and companion therapeutics, today announced financial results for the fiscal first quarter ended September 30, 2019 and provided a corporate update.

Management Commentary

“During our first fiscal quarter, we were able to sustain the momentum that carried us through fiscal 2019,” said Bradley C. Robinson, chief executive officer of Predictive Technology Group. “Total revenues for the quarter increased 2.5% year-over-year to $8.3 million, despite the difficult comparison driven by strong sales of human cell and tissue products (HCT/Ps) in the year-ago period.

“Since our last quarterly update, we successfully launched three new DNA-based test panels, including the full market launch of ARTguide™ following the successful Key Opinion Leader (KOL) beta launch, the KOL launch of FertilityDX™ and expanded distribution of PGxPLUS+™. ARTguide™, which helps detect genomic concerns associated with endometriosis and other infertility issues in women, has now been fully commercially launched and we expect material revenues to be generated beginning in calendar 2020.  FertilityDX™, which is a comprehensive service that identifies infertility causes, optimizes infertility treatments and reduces risk of complications, is currently in a beta KOL development period. We are on track with the development and distribution of these fertility diagnostic tests that address an unmet need in the complex area of fertility and women’s health.

“In parallel, we achieved a significant milestone in our Predictive Biotech business, having now delivered over 100,000 allografts resulting in over 60,000 patient experiences with no serious adverse events attributable to our products, including  AmnioCyte™, AmnioCyte Plus™, PolyCyte™ and CoreCyte™. Moving forward, in our Predictive Therapeutics business, we intend to pursue the FDA’s 351 regulatory pathway as we advance new cellular therapeutic candidates into clinical trials. Securing FDA approval via this pathway requires a rigorous demonstration of a product’s efficacy and safety at a time when the agency has increased its focus on companies offering potentially unsafe human cell and tissue-based products as therapeutic agents. We are in a unique position with our HCT/P platform as the significant safety experience of over 100,000 allografts used in patients in the U.S. market provides the ability to accelerate and de-risk the clinical trial pathway for FDA approved indications. We will announce the specific indications for which we are pursuing FDA approval.

“We are in the early stages of unlocking significant synergies among our business subsidiaries and are working to further advance our broad pipeline of data analytics, therapeutics and diagnostics to benefit both patients and our stakeholders. We are fortunate to have highly experienced members of our advisory teams, management teams and board of directors to bring these products to market and truly improve the quality of life of individuals.”

Fiscal First Quarter 2020 Results

Revenue from operations (net) for the three months ended September 30, 2019 totaled $8.3 million, compared with $8.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018. The increase of $0.2 million was the result of an expansion of the company’s sales force and distribution networks leading to increased sales of HCT/Ps and regenerative medicine products.

Cost of goods sold (“COGS”) includes expenses associated with acquisition and processing, manufacturing (including materials and direct labor), shipping, and other direct expenses relating to the company’s HCT/Ps and regenerative medicine products. Cost of goods sold for the three months ended September 30, 2019 was $7.2 million compared with $3.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018. The increase is primarily due to $1.8 million in scrap expense and $1.2 million in increased inventory reserves related to HCT/P product that did not pass quality control, or that is not expected to pass quality control. The increase in quality control failure rates above normal levels was primarily due to a component supplied by a specific vendor. The remaining increase is due to increased share-based compensation cost of $0.4 million, increased personnel costs of $0.5 million, and increased facility costs of $0.2 million. 

Sales and marketing expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2019 were $3.2 million, compared with $2.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018. The increased sales and marketing expenses resulted from increasing the headcount in the company’s sales force.

Research and development (R&D) expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2019 were $1.8 million, compared with $0.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018. The increased research and development expenses resulted from increased focus on product development and additional proprietary research and development work relating to the company’s HCT/Ps and regenerative medicine products. Additionally, we have invested significant amounts in laboratory support in anticipation of the sale of diagnostic products.

General and Administrative (G&A) expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2019 were $6.4 million compared with $2.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018. The changes in general and administrative expenses resulted from increased management headcount and share based compensation expense in fiscal 2020.

Amortization and depreciation expense for the three months ended September 30, 2019 was $2.6 million, compared with $1.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018. The reason for the increase in amortization and depreciation expense relates primarily to the amortization of intangible assets acquired from acquisitions.

The net loss attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended September 30, 2019 was $7.9 million, or $0.03 per share, versus a net loss attributable to common shareholders for the three months ended September 30, 2018 of $2.0 million, or $0.01 per share.

Predictive Laboratories Team Led by Laboratory Director Kenneth Ward, M.D. Receives 2019 Endometriosis Special Interest Group Prize Paper Award

Research presented by Dr. Hans Albertsen of Juneau Biosciences advancing knowledge of the genetic factors contributing to endometriosis receives award at the 2019 American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Scientific Congress & Expo

SALT LAKE CITY (October 17, 2019)Predictive Laboratories, a wholly owned molecular and genetic diagnostics company of Predictive Technology Group (OTC Pink: PRED) focused on hard-to-detect diseases, women’s health and infertility, announces Kenneth Ward, M.D., laboratory director of Predictive Laboratories and chief executive officer of Juneau Biosciences; Rakesh Chettier M.S., director of biostatistics of Predictive Laboratories; and Hans Albertsen, Ph.D., chief scientific officer of Juneau Biosciences, have received the 2019 Endometriosis Special Interest Group (EndoSIG) Prize Paper in the “Best in Clinical/Population Science” category.

Dr. Albertsen’s presentation entitled “Cytoskeletal and extra cellular matrix genes are key contributors in the pathogenesis of endometriosis” was delivered at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) 2019 Scientific Congress & Expo in Philadelphia on October 16.  EndoSIG is a member group of ASRM aimed at fostering increased interest in the biology, pathophysiology and clinical management of endometriosis.

“We are honored to receive this prestigious award from the ASRM Research Committee,” said Dr. Albertsen.  “As endometriosis is generally characterized as a hormonal and inflammatory disease, current therapies often come with significant debilitating side effects.  The scientific breaktroughs reported in these award-winning discoveries provide Predictive with insights into new non-hormonal therapies.”  

The team’s research is based on the genetic markers of endometriosis discovered by Juneau and Predictive scientists in recent years, and uncovers molecular pathways involved in the pathogenesis of endometriois-induced lesions in women at risk for the disease.  Juneau’s gene discovery work in endometriosis was also awarded the EndoSIG Prize Paper in 2015 and 2018.  

Dr. Ward, a board-certified physician in obstetrics and gynecology, perinatology, clinical genetics and molecular genetics, presented two scienfic papers at the Annual ASRM meeting:  a poster entitled, “Endometriosis risk allele in WNT4 may interact with rare mutations in HDAC2 gene” and an oral abstract entitled, “Somatic cancer driver mutations in endometriosis lesions contribute to secondary cancer risk.”

“We are tremendously proud of Drs. Ward and Albertsen and the teams at Predictive Laboratories and Juneau Biosciences for their research, collaborations and continued devotion to endometriosis and other gene discoveries that advance our understanding of fertility and women’s health, and lead to healthy newborns,” said Bradley Robinson, chief executive officer of Predictive Technology Group.  “ASRM brings leaders in reproductive care together from across the world to share findings, inspire new methodology and encourage collaboration to promote further development in reproductive medicine.”

In June 2019, Predictive Laboratories and Thermo Fisher Scientific announced a global research collaboration to study underlying genetic factors contributing to female infertility.  The two companies conducted meetings at ASRM in Philadelphia.  This partnership pairs Predictive’s innovative research and development capabilities with Thermo Fisher’s market-leading next generation sequencing technology and analytical capabilities to accelerate the understanding of the genetics affecting infertility for future development of diagnostic solutions.

Predictive Technology Group Engages CLSA Capital Markets Limited, a CITIC Securities Company, to Support Product Launches into China’s Rapidly Growing Women’s Health and Fertility Market

SALT LAKE CITY October 15, 2019 Predictive Technology Group, Inc. (OTC PINK: PRED), a leader in the development of genetic and molecular diagnostics and companion therapeutics, announces that it has engaged CLSA Capital Markets Limited, a CITIC Securities Company, to provide introductions to potential strategic partners and regulatory guidance to support the launch of its proprietary genetic-based products into China’s (PRC) rapidly growing markets for women’s health and fertility.  Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Given our genetic library, research and understanding of genetics, endometriosis and other factors that may affect a woman’s fertility, we are excited to bring our noninvasive testing technology to this large, emerging market that already surpasses the U.S. in terms of the number of affected women,” said Bradley Robinson, Chief Executive Officer of Predictive Technology Group. “Our tests help both the doctor and patient understand and navigate the barriers to fertility, changing the path to a healthy baby. We are especially pleased to collaborate in this endeavor with CLSA, a leading capital markets and investment group in Asia.”

Predictive expects to introduce ARTguide™ among other fertility diagnostics to the Chinese market. On October 14, 2019, Predictive launched the full U.S. market availability of ARTguide, its test to evaluate the risk for endometriosis and other genetic causes of infertility in women, at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) 2019 Scientific Congress and Expo in Philadelphia.

In 2016 the National Health and Family Planning Commission of the PRC reported that 40 million Chinese couples were experiencing fertility issues.  Similarly, the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) reported in 2017 that an estimated 25% of Chinese women of childbearing age struggled with infertility issues.  In 2018 the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology estimated that approximately 800,000 assisted reproductive technology (ART) cycles, such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), were being performed in China annually.  Chinese women are driving the fertility markets both in China and medical tourism industries overseas.  The global IVF market is expected to grow at an annual rate of 10.2% and to reach $36.2 billion by 2026.  The U.S. Center for Disease Control reported that of the patients who sought fertility care in 2017, 284,385 ART cycles were performed resulting in 78,052 live born infants with ART accounting for 1.7% of all infants born in the U.S. annually.      

Predictive Laboratories ARTguide Test

ARTguide is the first integrated, DNA-based test that evaluates the risk for endometriosis and other genetic causes of infertility in women.  It provides a greater understanding of over a dozen genetic conditions affecting a woman’s fertility by identifying previously invisible barriers to conception, consequently improving ART success rates.  ARTguide is appropriate for all women considering use of ART to overcome difficulty conceiving or carrying a pregnancy.

ARTguide was introduced to a limited number of U.S. clinics in 2018.  Predictive Laboratories is a wholly owned molecular and genetic diagnostics company of Predictive Technology Group focused on hard-to-detect diseases, women’s health and infertility.  Predictive Laboratories recently completed a laboratory expansion to add capacity that allows ARTguide to be available more broadly in the U.S.

Endometriosis

Endometriosis is an estrogen-responsive, chronic condition that arises from extra-uterine growth of the stromal or glandular tissue that line the uterus.  Often called the “invisible disease,” endometriosis affects an estimated 1 in 10 women in the U.S. during their reproductive years with many cases go undiagnosed.  It is common for a woman to experience symptoms—such as chronic pelvic pain, heavy or painful periods—for a decade or more before a diagnosis is made (13 years, on average, in China).  The current standard for diagnosis is laparoscopic surgery, to biopsy lesions found within the fallopian tubes or uterus.  Even with this surgery, intraoperative diagnosis by conventional laparoscopic visualization is frequently difficult and inaccurate.

Severe endometriosis with extensive scarring and organ damage is one of the most common causes of female infertility.  However, endometriosis can still affect fertility when no symptoms are present.  30% to 50% of women with endometriosis may experience infertility, and 25% to 50% of women who experience infertility have endometriosis.

Studies have linked the risk of endometriosis to ethnicity, with several reporting Asian women’s risk being nine times greater than that of Caucasian women.  A recent systematic review analyzing the outcomes of more than 1.9 million Chinese women found endometriosis to be associated with the worsening of obstetric and pregnancy-related outcomes, including miscarriage, pre-term labor, placenta previa, small for gestational age, and caesarean delivery compared to healthy controls.

Predictive Laboratories Launches FertilityDX™

Genetic testing service now available to identify causes of infertility and guide personalized fertility treatments

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 14, 2019– Predictive Laboratories, a wholly owned molecular and genetic diagnostics company of Predictive Technology Group (OTC Pink: PRED) focused on hard-to-detect diseases, women’s health and infertility, announces the launch of FertilityDX™, a comprehensive genetic testing service that identifies barriers to healthy pregnancy and birth, allowing doctors to tailor fertility treatments. The test launch will be formally announced at the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) 2019 Scientific Congress and Expo, Oct. 12-16 in Philadelphia.

“For the one in eight couples who struggle with infertility, trying to have a child can be financially, physically and emotionally exhausting—largely because the couple doesn’t know why they are having difficulty conceiving,” said Kenneth Ward, M.D., Laboratory Director of Predictive Laboratories. Dr. Ward is a board-certified physician in obstetrics and gynecology, perinatology, clinical genetics and molecular genetics. “Our desire is to arm couples considering assisted reproductive technologies (ART) with an understanding of the genetic and medical obstacles that may be affecting their fertility and provide doctors with genetically relevant information to help their patients have a healthy baby.”

FertilityDX provides information by evaluating three key areas: contributors to (or causes of) infertility, risks of pregnancy complications, and risks for serious genetic conditions in offspring.

FertilityDX supports both physician and patient throughout the entirety of the treatment process. Patients are provided with pretest counseling and clear and relevant test results. Physicians get an easy-to-understand final report and access to a variety of genetics consultants. The test will be launched in select fertility clinics across the United States, offering couples access to the most comprehensive genetic service to date.

Predictive Laboratories Announces Commercialization And Full Market Availability Of ARTguide™ At American Society Of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Scientific Congress And Expo

 Company also presenting two oral and one poster scientific presentations at ASRM

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 10, 2019 — Predictive Laboratories, a wholly owned molecular and genetic diagnostics company of Predictive Technology Group (OTC Pink: PRED) focused on hard-to-detect diseases, women’s health and infertility, announces the commercialization and full market availability of ARTguide, the first integrated, DNA-based test that evaluates the risk for endometriosis and other genetic causes of infertility in women. After a successful beta launch, Predictive Laboratories completed a laboratory expansion that will allow ARTguide to now be available in fertility clinics across the United States.

“Endometriosis can be a debilitating disease for many women as it can cause severe pelvic pain, inflammation, adhesions to the fallopian tubes and uterus, and often, infertility,” said Kenneth Ward, M.D., Laboratory Director of Predictive Laboratories. “Nearly 50% of women who struggle with infertility have endometriosis, but because surgery is required for a definitive diagnosis, oftentimes it remains undiagnosed. ARTguide can predict a patient’s risk of endometriosis early on so that women have a better understanding of their barriers to conception, and therefore their physician can create a more personalized infertility treatment plan.”

ARTguide provides a greater understanding of over a dozen genetic conditions affecting a woman’s fertility by identifying previously invisible barriers to conception and improving success rates in assisted reproductive technologies (ART), such as in vitro fertilization (IVF). ARTguide tests for hundreds of genetic markers of endometriosis and 80 other additional mutations causing conditions such as ovarian failure, that may impact fertility. Through the identification of genetic infertility risk factors, ARTguide helps women optimally navigate their path towards conception and a healthy birth. ARTguide is appropriate for all women considering use of ART to overcome difficulty conceiving or carrying a pregnancy.

ARTguide’s full market availability will be announced during the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) 2019 Scientific Congress and Expo, Oct. 12 – 16 in Philadelphia. In addition to sharing this news, Dr. Ward, a board-certified physician in obstetrics and gynecology, perinatology, clinical genetics and molecular genetics, will present two scientific papers at ASRM. The schedule of his speaking engagements are as follows:

Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 6:30 a.m. ET — Poster presentation: Endometriosis risk allele in WNT4 may interact with rare mutatins in HDAC2 gene 

Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 11:15 a.m. ET — Oral abstract: Somatic cancer driver mutations in endometriosis lesions contribute to secondary cancer risk  

 Dr. Ward’s colleague, Hans Albertsen, Ph.D., will present additional endometriosis data on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 11:30 a.m. ET — Oral abstract: Cytoskeletal and extracellular matrix genes are key contributors in the pathogenesis of endometriosis.

Fiscal Year 2019 Financial Results

Revenue for fiscal 2019 was $43.5 million, up 162% from $16.6 million for fiscal 2018, with the increase primarily due to higher demand for human cell and tissue products. In fiscal 2019 the Company elevated its presence at trade shows, expanded sales headcount and added several new distributors resulting in sales to more U.S. clinics.

Cost of goods sold for fiscal 2019 were $16.3 million, compared with $4.0 million for fiscal 2018 with the increase mainly due to an increase in the volume of products shipped, as well as increases in quality and regulatory costs, share-based compensation cost and facility costs.

Selling and marketing expenses for fiscal 2019 were $13.9 million, compared with $12.7 million for fiscal 2018. The increase was primarily due to higher commissions and personnel costs related to headcount as the Company continued to expand, partially offset by lower share-based compensation expense related to warrants issued in fiscal 2018 with no similar issuance in fiscal 2019.

General and administration expenses for fiscal 2019 were $18.2 million, compared with $5.8 million for fiscal 2018. The increase was primarily due to higher share-based compensation expense, as well as higher personnel costs and increased outside services costs mainly in connection with public company compliance.

R&D expenses for fiscal 2019 were $5.8 million, compared with $1.9 million for the prior fiscal year, with the increase primarily due to costs related to the development of diagnostic products, and continued development of human cell and tissue product manufacturing methods.

Depreciation and amortization expenses for fiscal 2019 were $9.2 million, compared with $4.6 million for fiscal 2018. The increase was primarily due to an increase in the intangible asset portfolio arising from business combinations, asset acquisitions and costs related to laboratory expansion.

Other loss for fiscal 2019 was $0.8 million, compared with other loss of $0.7 million for fiscal 2018. The change was primarily driven by higher losses from the equity method investment associated with the increasing ownership in Juneau Biosciences, LLC and a decrease in interest income, partially offset by the bargain purchase gain arising from the acquisition of Taueret Laboratories, LLC.

Net loss attributable to controlling interest for fiscal 2019 was $15.3 million, or $0.06 per share, compared with a net loss attributable to controlling interest for fiscal 2018 of $6.1 million, or $0.03 per share.

Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2019 were $1.6 million, compared with $1.2 million as of June 30, 2018. Cash provided by operating activities for fiscal year 2019 was $3.5 million, a significant improvement from cash used in operating activities of $0.3 million for the prior fiscal year. The increase in cash provided by operating activities for the year ended June 30, 2019 compared to the prior year was primarily due to a $2.1 million decrease in the year over year change in inventories, and a $2.5 million increase in the year over year change in accounts payable. These increases were partly offset by an increase in the year over year change in accounts receivable.
