HENDERSON, Nev., Aug. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- VolitionRx Limited (NYSE AMERICAN: VNRX) ("Volition") today announced financial results and a business update for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023. Volition management will host a conference call tomorrow, August 15 at 8:30 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time to discuss these results. Conference call details can be found below.
"I am delighted to report that we submitted a Breakthrough Device Designation Request to the FDA in June for our Nu.Q® technology in relation to sepsis. This was a milestone moment in our company's history and for the first time we are in active discussions with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. We believe that our case is strong, and we look forward to reaching agreement on a clear regulatory pathway to approval, for what we believe would be a pioneering product."
"We continued making considerable progress with our Centers of Excellence in Europe for Nu.Q® NETs, with the first clinical paper resulting from one Center already submitted for peer review and look forward to hosting a Key Opinion Leader Roundtable Event focused on sepsis in September," commented Cameron Reynolds, President and Group Chief Executive Officer of Volition.
"We are also getting closer to our goal of making our canine cancer screening and monitoring test accessible worldwide, through our current relationships, and through expected additional launches in large markets later this year.
"I am pleased to report that in the first half of 2023 we have already exceeded the total full year revenue we recorded in 2022 with total revenue to June 30th of $366,000. Revenue for the Nu.Q® Vet Cancer Test grew five-fold over the prior year, reflecting sales of the reference kits through our global supply agreements."
- Cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2023, totaled approximately $19.7 million compared with $10.9 million at the end of 2022.
- Received approximately $17.6 million net of underwriter's fees and commissions in cash through an underwritten public offering of its common stock in June.
- Expect to receive a further $13 million in milestone payments from Heska Corporation and additional significant non-dilutive funding from several Belgian agencies.
