The preliminary, estimated financial results for the third quarter contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K contain forward-looking statements and are subject to the completion of management’s and the audit committee’s final reviews and our other financial closing procedures and are therefore subject to change. You should not place undue reliance on such preliminary information and estimates because they may prove to be materially inaccurate. The preliminary information and estimates have not been compiled or examined by our independent auditors and they are subject to revision as we prepare our financial statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2023, including all disclosures required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, and as our auditors conduct their audit of these financial statements. While we believe that such preliminary information and estimates are based on reasonable assumptions, actual results may vary, and such variations may be material.

including, but not limited to, (i) any inability to (a) realize anticipated benefits from commitments, contracts or products; (b) successfully execute strategic priorities; (c) bring products to market; (d) expand product usage or adoption; (e) obtain customer testimonials; (f) accurately predict growth assumptions; (g) realize anticipated revenues; (h) incur expected levels of operating expenses; or (i) increase the number of high-risk patients at customer facilities; (ii) failure of early data to predict eventual outcomes; (iii) failure to make or obtain anticipated FDA filings or clearances within expected time frames or at all; or (iv) the factors discussed under Item 1A. “Risk Factors” in the company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022, filed with the Commission on March 31, 2023 and other filings the company makes with Commission from time to time.

T2 Biosystems Announces Preliminary Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results and Business Updates

Received FDA 510(k) clearance for the T2Biothreat Panel and significantly strengthened balance sheet

LEXINGTON, Mass., October 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)—T2 Biosystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTOO) (the “Company”), a leader in the rapid detection of sepsis-causing pathogens and antibiotic resistance genes, today announced preliminary unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2023 and business updates.

Recent Financial and Operational Highlights

 

   

Achieved preliminary third quarter 2023 total revenue of $1.5 million, comprised entirely of product revenue, a decrease of 60% compared to the prior year period, primarily due to a $1.0 million reduction in BARDA revenue.

 

   

Achieved sepsis test panel revenue of $1.1 million, a decrease of 31% compared to the prior year period, primarily due to ending the third quarter with a sepsis test backorder of $380,000.

 

   

Executed contracts for 5 T2Dx Instruments during the third quarter, including 2 in the U.S. and 3 internationally.

 

   

Completed installation for all seven initial T2Dx® Instruments sold under a multi-year contract with a European distributor for T2Dx Instruments and sepsis test panels for Poland.

 

   

Strengthened balance sheet by converting $10.0 million, or approximately 20%, of term loan debt with CRG Servicing LLC in exchange for shares of T2 Biosystems equity.

 

   

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $24.3 million as of September 30, 2023, and the Company raised an additional $21.9 million in net proceeds through ATM sales during the third quarter.

Recent Pipeline and Clinical Highlights

 

   

Received FDA 510(k) clearance for the T2Biothreat Panel, a direct-from-blood diagnostic test; only FDA-cleared multi-target biothreat test developed/manufactured by a U.S. owned company.

 

   

Received FDA Breakthrough Device designation for Candida auris test, a direct-from-blood molecular diagnostic test, marking the third T2 Biosystems’ product to receive this designation.

 

   

Advanced the T2Resistance Panel toward FDA 510(k) submission, which we expect to occur during the first quarter of 2024.

 

   

Filed FDA 510(k) submission to expand the FDA-cleared T2Bacteria® Panel to include the detection of Acinetobacter baumannii.

 

   

The Company’s milestone-based product development contract with BARDA ended on September 15, 2023, upon the completion of Option 3.

“Our third quarter results were highlighted by the receipt of FDA 510(k) clearance for the T2Biothreat Panel and 510(k) submission to add Acinetobacter baumannii detection to the FDA-cleared T2Bacteria Panel, which are both intended to create growth opportunities by expanding the test menu on our FDA-cleared T2Dx Instrument,” stated John Sperzel, Chairman and CEO of T2 Biosystems. “Operationally, we have taken aggressive measures to address the sepsis test backorder, we have significantly improved our balance sheet by raising capital and by reducing our debt, and we have taken steps to maintain our Nasdaq listing, all of which will allow the Company to further advance our corporate priorities.”

Preliminary Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Total revenue for the third quarter of 2023 was $1.5 million, comprised entirely of product sales, a 60% decrease compared to $3.7 million in the prior year period, driven by a $1.0 million reduction in BARDA revenue, a $0.4 million sepsis test backorder, a $0.3 million reduction in international T2Dx Instrument sales, and a $0.3 million reduction in COVID-19 test sales.

Cash and cash equivalents totaled $24.3 million as of September 30, 2023. The Company raised $21.9 million in net proceeds through ATM sales in the third quarter of 2023 and on July 6, 2023, converted $10 million, or approximately 20%, of its term loan into equity.

The Company’s third quarter 2023 financial results are preliminary and are subject to the completion of the review of the Company’s third quarter 2023 financial statements. Complete third quarter 2023 financial results will be announced in November.

Updated 2023 Financial Outlook

The Company expects fourth quarter sepsis and related product revenue of $2.4 million, representing a sequential quarterly increase of 60% compared to the third quarter of 2023. As a result of the sepsis test backorder, the Company now expects full year total sepsis and related product revenue of $7.5 million, representing a decline of 10% compared to 2022.

Nasdaq Listing Status

T2 Biosystems Announces FDA 510(k) Submission to Expand the Pathogen Detection on its FDA-Cleared T2Bacteria Panel to Include Detection of Acinetobacter baumannii

LEXINGTON, Mass., October 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)—T2 Biosystems, Inc. (NASDAQ:TTOO), a leader in the rapid detection of sepsis-causing pathogens and antibiotic resistance genes, today announced that it has submitted a 510(k) premarket notification to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to expand the number of pathogens detected on the FDA-cleared T2Bacteria® Panel to include the detection of Acinetobacter baumannii (A. baumannii).

A. baumannii is a cause of bloodstream infections especially in critically ill patients, which can range from a benign transient bacteremia to septic shock. In a large study of nosocomial bloodstream infections, A. baumannii was the tenth most common pathogen and has a crude ICU mortality rate of 34.0% to 43.4%. A. baumannii infections typically occur in people in healthcare settings and pose risk to those who are on ventilators, have devices such as catheters, have open wounds from surgery, are in intensive care units, or have prolonged hospital stays.

“We are excited about the potential to expand the number of pathogens detected by our FDA-cleared T2Bacteria Panel to include the detection of A. baumannii,” stated John Sperzel, Chairman and CEO of T2 Biosystems. “We believe the addition of A. baumannii will lead to increased adoption as it increases the detection capabilities of our FDA-cleared T2Bacteria Panel to approximately 75% of all sepsis-causing bacterial pathogens commonly found in blood stream infections.”

Due to the emergence of pan-antibiotic resistant A. baumannii, the World Health Organization has identified A. baumannii as the most critically important bacteria that requires improved prevention and therapeutic approaches. There are few antimicrobial options for carbapenem resistant A. baumannii, which can increase mortality rates to 70%. Acinetobacter resistance to many antibiotics, including carbapenems, highlights the importance of rapid detection and targeted antimicrobial treatment.

The T2Bacteria Panel is the first and only FDA-cleared product able to detect sepsis-causing pathogens directly in whole blood, in 3 to 5 hours, without the need to wait days for a positive blood culture. The FDA-cleared T2Bacteria Panel currently detects E. faecium, S. aureus, K. pneumoniae, P. aeruginosa, and E. coli, and the CE marked version detects the aforementioned pathogens plus A. baumannii. Rapid detection of these pathogens is essential to getting infected patients on the appropriate antimicrobial therapy and improving clinical outcomes.
