Labcorp Completes Acquisition of PGDx
Labcorp completed its previously announced (see LE, January 2022) acquisition of Personal Genome Diagnostics Inc. (PGDx-Baltimore, MD) on February 18. PGDx markets an FDA-cleared comprehensive tumor profiling test, PGDx ELIO tissue complete, that is covered by Medicare under the PLA code 0250U at a rate of $2,950. Labcorp paid $450 million in cash at closing
and will pay up to an additional $125 million based on PGDx achieving future performance milestones. The $575 million purchase price, including contingent performance payments, is equal to 14.4 times PGDx’s expected revenue of $40 million in 2022.
