The GenomeWeb index underperformed the Dow Jones, the Nasdaq, and the Nasdaq Biotechnology Index.

Clinical services revenues rose 56 percent to $92.6 million while pharma services grew 26 percent to $12.1 million.

The GenomeWeb Index, which now has 32 companies, lost 2.6 percent in September while the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 2 percent over the same period.

Much of the growth was driven by contributions from Genoptix, which NeoGenomics acquired in late 2018. Organically, revenues were up 20 percent.

The agreement consists of a $100 million revolving credit facility, a $100 million initial term loan, and a $50 million delayed-draw term loan.

The deals with Covance, NeoGenomics Laboratories, and Navigate BioPharma Services aim to expand access to NanoString's PanCancer IO 360 Gene Expression Panel.

The firm said that it may use some of the net proceeds to acquire or invest in complementary businesses and technologies.

The company, based in Fort Myers, Florida, said that it plans to use the net proceeds from the offering for general corporate purposes.

The firm's clinical service revenues were up also 51 percent, and it also announced it has signed a contract with insurer Humana.
