On August 8, 2022, after the market closed, DermTech announced its second quarter 2022 financial results and revealed that the Company expected “a lower average selling price (ASP) for [its] DMT,” due to “Medicare billing code edits . . . as well as less favorable collection patterns from commercial payors.”

Then, on November 3, 2022, after the market closed, DermTech announced its third quarter 2022 financial results, reporting that billable sample volume “sequential growth was flat due to headwinds caused by limited commercial payer coverage.” The Company attributed the disappointing growth to “commercial payer collection challenges [have] affect[ed] estimating ASP [average selling price].” As a result, DermTech expected “at least $13 million in assay revenue for the fullyear 2022,” which is “below [its] previous guidance range.”
On this news, the Company’s stock price fell $1.34, or 44.7%, to close at $1.66 per share on November 4, 2022.
