Neogenomics

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.

The companies were involved in a dispute over NeoGenomics' handling of Health Discovery technology it licensed in 2012 to develop cancer tests.

Test volumes, revenues per test and costs per test improved during the quarter, company executives said.

The index fell more than 11 percent in December, underperforming the Dow and the Nasdaq, but performing on par with the Nasdaq Biotechnology Index.
