AnPac Bio Reports Strong First Quarter in 2021, with 137.2% Increase in Revenue and Record Number of Commercial Tests Completed

AnPac Bio Reports Strong First Quarter in 2021, with 137.2% Increase in Revenue and Record Number of Commercial Tests Completed

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, May 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AnPac Bio-Medical Science Co., Ltd. (“AnPac Bio,” the “Company” or “we”) (NASDAQ: ANPC), a biotechnology company with operations in China and the United States, announced today its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021. The Company’s financial statements and related financial information for the quarter ended March 31, 2021 are unaudited or have not been reviewed by the Company’s independent registered accountant.  These financial results could differ materially if they were reviewed by the Company’s independent registered accountant.

Financial highlights for the First Quarter 2021

Total revenue was RMB2.2 million (US$0.3 million) for the first quarter of 2021, an increase of 137.2% from RMB0.9 million for the first quarter of 2020.
Gross profit margin was 58.4% for the first quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 25.7 % from 32.7% for the first quarter of 2020, primarily due to higher selling prices charged for CDA-based tests and improved operational efficiency as well as higher volume of CDA-based tests performed during the first quarter of 2021.
The average selling price (“ASP”) of CDA-based tests was RMB401.0(US$61.2) for the first quarter of 2021, an increase of RMB20.0, or 5.0% from RMB381.0 in the same period of 2020, primarily due to a broader product offering of more comprehensive multi-cancer detection tests at higher price points.
Net loss was RMB29.3 million (US$4.5 million) for the first quarter of 2021, compared to a net loss of RMB21.2 million for the first quarter of 2020. The net loss for the first quarter of 2021 was mainly attributable to RMB3.2 million (US$0.5 million) changes in the fair value of the convertible debts, RMB3.9 million (US$0.6 million) of selling and marketing expenses, RMB3.4 million (US$0.5 million) of research and development expenses and RMB 19.2 million (US$2.9 million) of general and administrative expenses.
Short-term debt was RMB22.4 million (US$3.4 million) as of March 31, 2021, an increase of 171.9% from RMB8.2 million at the end of last fiscal year (December 31, 2020). The increase in short-term debt was mainly due to issuance of additional convertible debentures with a fair value of USD$2.5 million.

·      As of March 31, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB9.0 million (US$1.4 million), compared to RMB3.0 million as of December 31, 2020.

Business Highlights for the First Quarter of 2021

The Company reached a record high number of commercial CDA tests for the 1st Quarter versus any previous Q1 in the Company’s history

 

The Company has developed and completed testing at the end of February 2021 of a new generation of multi-cancer detection sensor named CDA Pro Sensor (CDAPS) which is a technology breakthrough with improved performance over the previous generation cancer detection sensors in a number of areas, including detection signal stability, sensor device yield, and detection sensitivity and specificity. The Company expects that CDAPS will extend the competitiveness for AnPac in the space of cancer screening.

On January 25, 2021, the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA), the regulatory agent for medical products in China, approved the Company to start registration testing of AnPac Bio’s class III lung cancer auxiliary diagnosis medical device at its designated medical device testing laboratory, which is a major progress and step towards obtaining a Class III medical device registration certificate.

The Company continued to receive validation on the efficacy of CDA testing through follow-up studies. As of March 31, 2021, AnPac Bio had contacted 23,857 individuals tested using CDA packages in China and received substantive feedback regarding health conditions and disease development from 14,127 individuals.
As of March 31, 2021, the Company filed 237 patent applications globally, among which 142 patents had been granted, including 20 patents granted in the United States, 65 in greater China (including eight in Taiwan), and 57 in other countries and regions.
The Company continued to build a cancer risk assessment database, which totaled approximately 222,200 samples as of March 31, 2021, including approximately 178,300 samples from commercial CDA-based tests and approximately 43,900 samples from research studies.
Dr. Chris Yu, AnPac Bio’s Chairman and CEO commented: “We are very pleased with our strong Q1 performance results, including (1) a 137.2% in revenue increase over the same period last year, (2) development and final evaluations of our next generation of multi-cancer detection sensor technology which includes significant performance improvements, and (3) receiving approval from the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) to start registration test of AnPac Bio’s class III lung cancer auxiliary diagnosis medical device.  We are going into Q2 with strong momentum.  Our continued focus in completing our Class III medical device registration and our new product development pipeline is showing great progress. We have also worked closely with our customers and commercial partners to achieve accelerated revenue growth.”

AnPac Bio Launches Novel Cancer Treatment Technology and Product Joint Venture – Utilizing Findings from 10 Years of Early-Stage Cancer Detection Work Involving over 222,200 Sample Database

AnPac Bio Launches Novel Cancer Treatment Technology and Product Joint Venture – Utilizing Findings from 10 Years of Early-Stage Cancer Detection Work Involving over 222,200 Sample Database 

San Jose, CA, May 24, 2021 – AnPac Bio-Medical Science Co., Ltd. (ANPC) (“AnPac Bio,” the “Company” or “we”), a biotechnology company with operations in China and the United States focused on early cancer screening and detection, announced today that on May 17, 2021, its board of directors approved the Company to establish a joint venture (the “Joint Venture”) together with its founder and chairman, Dr. Chris Chang Yu, and certain other individuals to develop a new cancer treatment technology and associated products. AnPac Bio will contribute two filed patent applications in the space of cancer treatment to the Joint Venture, and shareholding percentages of AnPac Bio and other shareholders in the Joint Venture will be determined based on the value of the patent applications assessed by an independent appraisal firm, as well as other commercial factors.

The new cancer treatment technology to be developed by the Joint Venture is expected to be based on AnPac Bio’s important findings in the past 10 years of extensive early-stage cancer detection work involving over 222,200 samples (including commercial CDA-based tests and CDA-based tests for research purpose), as well as based on correlations between changes in biophysical properties in the micro-environment (such as blood) and cancer occurrence observed by multiple research groups including AnPac Bio.  This novel technology is expected to utilize key treatment modules fabricated by integrated circuit (IC) technology in conjunction with certain reagents, to target biophysical properties exhibiting abnormal ranges within pre-cancer and cancer populations. The aim of the technology is to prevent disease progression for both pre-cancer and cancer patients. Laboratory tests on this technology are expected to begin in the third quarter of 2021. Additionally, a class III medical device registration application to Chinese National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) is planned for Q3, 2022.

Dr. Chris Yu, Chairman and CEO of AnPac Bio commented: “We are very pleased to have launched this very meaningful and important project with a lot of momentum.  This cancer treatment technology is novel, and this investment gives AnPac Bio significant advantages in terms of technology extendibility, cost control, customer sharing and business synergy.”

  • The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania US lab completed renovations and in August 2020, the lab received CLIA certification.

Dr. Chris Yu, CEO and Chairman of AnPac Bio commented: “We are very pleased with our excellent financial performance in 2020. Although the COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted businesses around the world over the last year, AnPac Bio still achieved significant growth in its revenues and gross margin while reducing its net loss by approximately 20.7%.  This illustrated the capabilities of Anpac Bio’s management team and also demonstrated that our technology and products are getting increased acceptance in the marketplace.

AnPac Bio developed two new products in 2020 which continue to gain traction with our customers. Our issued patents reached 141 at the end of 2020.  We are proud of what AnPac Bio has achieved in 2020. We will continue to focus on research and development, obtaining the Class III medical device registration certificate in China, marketing our test as a laboratory developed test, or LDT, in the U.S., launching new products, and controlling costs and expenses.

As we announced recently, we have achieved a record Q1 for paid CDA-based cancer test volume in 2021.”

Financial Results for Fiscal Year 2020

Revenue

Total revenues increased by 89.1% to RMB20.5 million (US$3.1 million) in fiscal year 2020 from RMB10.8 million (US$1.6 million) in fiscal year 2019, primarily due to a significant increase in our revenue from cancer screening and detection tests.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues increased by 26.1% to RMB7.6 million (US$1.2 million) in fiscal year 2020 from RMB6.0 million in fiscal year 2019. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in depreciation expense, as we put more CDA devices into use to carry out our CDA-based tests.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses increased by 8.2% to RMB74.8 million (US$11.5 million) in fiscal year 2020 from RMB69.1 million in fiscal year 2019, primarily due to increased listing-related professional fees as well as increased staff compensation incurred in 2020.

AnPac Bio Reports Record Q1 for Paid CDA-Based Cancer Testing Volume in 2021, Increasing Approximately 130% Compared to Q1, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AnPac Bio Reports Record Q1 for Paid CDA-Based Cancer Testing Volume in 2021, Increasing Approximately 130% Compared to Q1, 2020

San Jose, CA, April 16, 2021 – AnPac Bio-Medical Science Co., Ltd. (“AnPac Bio,” the “Company” or “we”) (NASDAQ: ANPC), a biotechnology company with operations in China and the United States focused on early cancer screening and detection, announced today that it experienced strong demand for its paid tests based on the cancer differentiation analysis technology (CDA) technology, or paid CDA-based tests, in the first quarter of 2021, setting a record high Q1 test volume.  CDA-based tests, which are multi-cancer tests based on a novel biophysical approach, are the Company’s flagship product line and reached 5,439 paid cancer tests in Q1, an approximately 130% increase over the same period last year.  While AnPac Bio offers multiple test products including various cancer screening tests, immunology tests and annual physical checkups, paid CDA-based tests had the highest test volume among all these tests in Q1, 2021.

While the first 3 months of the year is traditionally a downtime due to seasonality and the Chinese New Year, the Company still experienced strong demand for its commercial CDA-based tests in Q1 2021.  This increase in paid CDA-based test volume was also due to the Company being negatively impacted by COVID-19 in Q1 2020.

Dr. Chris Yu commented, “We are very pleased with achieving the increase in Q1 paid CDA-based testing volume, which is a strong indication that AnPac Bio’s technology, services and quality are being recognized by the market.  Multi-cancer screening testing is now regarded as an important aspect and breakthrough in the fight again cancer as it offers a more cost effective and efficient way to screen cancer in large populations.  With our multi-cancer screening based CDA technology gaining market acceptance, we believe that we are well-positioned to capture the significant growth in the cancer screening market in China.  We are also working hard to commercialize our cancer test technology in the US via Laboratory Developed Tests (LDT).  We are fully committed to innovating and developing new products and technologies and closely working with customers to achieve continued growth.”
