Summary of Significant Accounting Policies


Accounting Estimates


The preparation of condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts of assets and liabilities reported and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Management’s estimates are based on historical experience, facts and circumstances available at the time, and various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Significant estimates include accounting for valuation allowances related to deferred income taxes, contingent consideration, allowances for doubtful accounts, revenue recognition, unrecognized tax benefits, and asset impairments involving other intangible assets. The Company periodically reviews these matters and reflects changes in estimates in earnings as appropriate. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates.


Revenue Recognition


Our clinical services derive its revenues from the performance of its proprietary assays or tests. The Company’s performance obligation is fulfilled upon the completion, review and release of test results to the customer. The Company subsequently bills third-party payers or direct-bill payers for the tests performed. Under Accounting Standards Codification 606, revenue is recognized based on the estimated transaction price or NRV, which is determined based on historical collection rates by each payer category for each proprietary test offered by the Company. To the extent the transaction price includes variable consideration, for all third party and direct-bill payers and proprietary tests, the Company estimates the amount of variable consideration that should be included in the transaction price using the expected value method based on historical experience.


For our clinical services, we regularly review the ultimate amounts received from the third-party and direct-bill payers and related estimated reimbursement rates and adjust the NRV’s and related contractual allowances accordingly. If actual collections and related NRV’s vary significantly from our estimates, we will adjust the estimates of contractual allowances, which affects net revenue in the period such variances become known.


For our pharma services, project level activities, including study setup and project management, are satisfied over the life of the contract while performance-related obligations are satisfied at a point in time as the Company processes samples delivered by the customer. Revenues are recognized at a point in time when the test results or other deliverables are reported to the customer.


Deferred Revenue


For our pharma services, project level fee revenue is recognized as deferred revenue and recorded at fair value. It represents payments received in advance of services rendered and is recognized ratably over the life of the contract.


Financing and Payment


For non-Medicare claims, our payment terms vary by payer category. Payment terms for direct-payers in our clinical business are typically thirty days and in our pharma services, up to sixty days. Commercial third-party-payers are required to respond to a claim within a time period established by their respective state regulations, generally between thirty to sixty days. However, payment for commercial third-party claims may be subject to a denial and appeal process, which could take up to two years in some instances where multiple appeals are submitted. The Company generally appeals all denials from commercial third-party payers.


Costs to Obtain or Fulfill a Customer Contract


Sales commissions are expensed in the period in which they have been earned. These costs are recorded in sales and marketing expense in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.


Accounts Receivable


The Company’s accounts receivables represent unconditional rights to consideration and are generated using its clinical services and pharma services. The Company’s clinical services are fulfilled upon completion of the test, review and release of the test results. In conjunction with fulfilling these services, the Company bills the third-party payer or direct-bill payer. Contractual adjustments represent the difference between the list prices and the reimbursement rates set by third-party payers, including Medicare, commercial payers, and amounts billed to direct-bill payers. Specific accounts may be written off after several appeals, which in some cases may take longer than twelve months. Pharma services represent, primarily, the performance of laboratory tests in support of clinical trials for pharma services customers. The Company bills these services directly to the customer.




The Company determines if an arrangement contains a lease in whole or in part at the inception of the contract. Right-of-use (“ROU”) assets represent the Company’s right to use an underlying asset for the lease term while lease liabilities represent our obligation to make lease payments arising from the lease. All leases with terms greater than twelve months result in the recognition of a ROU asset and a liability at the lease commencement date based on the present value of the lease payments over the lease term. Unless a lease provides all of the information required to determine the implicit interest rate, we use our incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at the commencement date in determining the present value of the lease payments. We use the implicit interest rate in the lease when readily determinable.


Our lease terms include all non-cancelable periods and may include options to extend (or to not terminate) the lease when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise that option. Leases with terms of twelve months or less at the commencement date are expensed on a straight-line basis over the lease term and do not result in the recognition of an asset or liability. See Note 7, Leases.


Other Current Assets


Other current assets consisted of the following as of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019:


    June 30, 2020     December 31, 2019  
Lab supply inventory     2,331       1,825  
Prepaid expenses     728       971  
Funds in escrow     -       888  
Due from CGI     525       92  
Other     167       75  
Total other current assets   $ 3,751     $ 3,851  


Long-Lived Assets, including Finite-Lived Intangible Assets


Finite-lived intangible assets are stated at cost less accumulated amortization. Amortization of finite-lived acquired intangible assets is recognized on a straight-line basis, using the estimated useful lives of the assets of approximately two years to ten years in acquisition-related amortization expense in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.


The Company reviews the recoverability of long-lived assets and finite-lived intangible assets whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of such assets may not be recoverable. If the sum of the expected future undiscounted cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the asset, an impairment loss is recognized by reducing the recorded value of the asset to its fair value measured by future discounted cash flows. This analysis requires estimates of the amount and timing of projected cash flows and, where applicable, judgments associated with, among other factors, the appropriate discount rate. Such estimates are critical in determining whether any impairment charge should be recorded and the amount of such charge if an impairment loss is deemed to be necessary.


Basic and Diluted Net Loss per Share


A reconciliation of the number of shares of common stock, par value $0.01 per share (the “Common Stock”), used in the calculation of basic and diluted loss per share for the three- and six-month periods ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 is as follows:


    Three Months Ended     Six Months Ended  
    June 30,     June 30,  
    2020     2019     2020     2019  
    (unaudited)     (unaudited)  
Basic weighted average number of common shares     4,033       3,813       4,018       3,665  
Potential dilutive effect of stock-based awards     -       -       -       -  
Diluted weighted average number of common shares     4,033       3,813       4,018       3,665  


The Company’s Preferred Stock, on an as converted basis of 7,833,334 shares for the three- and six-months ended June 30, 2020, and the following outstanding stock-based awards and warrants, were excluded from the computation of the effect of dilutive securities on loss per share for the following periods as they would have been anti-dilutive (rounded to thousands):


    Three Months Ended     Six Months Ended  
    June 30,     June 30,  
    2020     2019     2020     2019
