wafergen bio-systems inc (WGBS) Key Developments

WaferGen Bio-Systems, Inc. Announces Unaudited Consolidated Earnings and Operating Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for the Full Year 2014; Appoints Keith Warner as Chief Operating Officer and Michael P. Henighan as Chief Financial Officer

WaferGen Bio-systems, Inc. announced unaudited consolidated earnings and operating results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported total Revenues were $1,250,201 against $389,547 a year ago. The increase total revenue is primarily due to revenue from the Apollo 324TM library prep products acquired in early 2014, which accounted for 46% of product revenue in the third quarter of 2014. Operating loss was $3,128,194 against $3,228,005 a year ago. Net loss before provision for income taxes was $2,780,535 against $10,807,802 a year ago. Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $2,780,535 against $12,246,825 a year ago. Net loss per share basic and diluted was $1.02 against $43.51 a year ago. The lower net loss was primarily due to a reduction in non-operating expenses of $7.9 million, mainly due to the absence of $7.5 million in non-cash charges related to capital restructuring in 2013. For the nine months, the company reported total Revenues were $4,389,622 against $814,282 a year ago. Operating loss was $8,931,669 against $7,788,330 a year ago. Net loss before provision for income taxes was $7,426,462 against $17,749,806 a year ago. Net loss attributable to common stockholders was $7,429,562 against $22,097,341 a year ago. Net loss per share basic and diluted was $4.87 against $180.16 a year ago. The company announced the appointment of Keith Warner as Chief Operating Officer and Michael P. Henighan as Chief Financial Officer, adding seasoned executives to senior management team. The revenue guidance for the full year is in excess of $6 million for 2014, unchanged from prior guidance.

WaferGen Bio-systems, Inc. Launches Next Generation Sequencing Sample Preparation Platform Apollo 324

WaferGen Bio-systems, Inc. announced the launch of an automated solution for Agilent's SureSelect Target Enrichment workflow on the Apollo 324 Next Generation Sequencing sample preparation system. WaferGen responded to customers' unmet needs for a cost effective and flexible automated target capture solution. The Apollo 324 protocols were designed to enable researchers to utilize Agilent's SureSelect Reagent Kits with a decreased turnaround time, thereby improving throughput with the expanded flexibility to prepare a wide range of samples per run. This solution will be of great use to clinical CLIA labs, as well as clinical research institutions. The Apollo 324 NGS Library Prep System is a compact and flexible system that enables rapid and full walk-away automation of a wide variety of Next Generation Sequencing applications. WaferGen also offers complete solutions with PrepX reagent kits that are designed specifically for ease-of-use with Apollo 324 automated protocols. PrepX reagents are color-coded and prealiquotted with the necessary volume per reaction, significantly reducing hands-on time and operator error. WaferGen continues to develop new applications for Apollo 324, including second generation whole exome solutions and plans to launch additional solutions in the first quarter of 2015.
