MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 17, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Complete Genomics, Inc. (Nasdaq:GNOM) today announced its unaudited financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2010. These results were previously summarized in the prospectus relating to the Company's initial public offering, which closed on November 16, 2010. Revenue in the third quarter of 2010 was $4.2 million, compared to no revenue during the third quarter of 2009.  

Operating expenses for the quarter were $14.9 million, compared to $8.6 million for the third quarter of 2009. Expense growth reflects the first complete quarter of production in our sequencing facility and expansion of our sales and customer support organizations to drive commercialization of our sequencing services.

Net loss for the quarter was $20.5 million including an $8.8 million non-cash expense resulting from the accounting adjustment to market value of certain equity securities, compared with a $9.2 million net loss in the third quarter of 2009.

As of September 30, 2010, cash and cash equivalents were $10.5 million, and the order backlog for which we expect to sequence, bill and gain customer acceptance in the next twelve months was approximately $9.0 million.

"We are very pleased with our third quarter performance," said Cliff Reid, CEO of Complete Genomics. "During the quarter, we validated our technology at scale and added a number of new customers in the academic, clinical research, and pharmaceutical segments." Reid added, "Through the completion of our Series E financing in October and the completion of our IPO in November, the company raised net proceeds of approximately $59 million in the fourth quarter. This provides the company with additional resources to execute on its long-term growth strategy."


Sequencing Technology:

During the third quarter, Complete Genomics (CGI) sequenced over 300 genomes. The company anticipates sequencing over 300 genomes in the fourth quarter of 2010 as well.  

For the last 500 complete human genomes CGI has sequenced, an average of over 98% of the genome has been read at 10-fold or greater coverage. In addition, its software made high confidence calls of an average of over 95% of the genome and over 94% of the exome.

Advanced Informatics and Data Management Software:

In October, CGI announced the release of a new suite of CGA™ Tools which enables its customers to more easily analyze genetic variation across multiple genomes. In December, CGI announced that its customers will now receive copy number variation (CNV) and structural variation (SV) results as part of the standard CGA™ Service. These enhancements, particularly important in the study of cancer genomes, reflect CGI's progress in providing its customers with a complete solution that accelerates their research efforts.
