T2 Biosystems Announces Preliminary Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results and Updates 2022 Financial Outlook

LEXINGTON, Mass., Oct. 12, 2022 (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, 2022.

Recent Highlights (unaudited)

  • Achieved estimated third quarter total revenue of approximately $3.7 million, including estimated product revenue of approximately $2.6 million, representing decreases of 50% and 40% respectively, compared to the prior year period, driven by lower sales of COVID-19 tests and reduced BARDA revenue offset by increased sepsis test sales.
  • Achieved estimated sepsis and related revenue (non-COVID product revenue) of approximately $2.3 million, representing a record number for a single quarter and an increase of 24% compared to the prior year period.
  • Executed contracts for 11 T2Dx® Instruments during the third quarter, including 3 in the U.S. and 8 outside the U.S., compared to 8 total instruments in the prior year period.
  • Sold a second T2Dx Instrument to one of the leading U.S. laboratory service providers in October, to be deployed for sepsis testing in one of the provider’s managed-hospital laboratories.
  • Received Breakthrough Device Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for the T2Lyme™ Panel and submitted for development funding through the Lyme Innovation Accelerator (LymeX).
  • Completed all milestones for Option 2B of the multiple-year product development contract with BARDA, including milestones advancing the U.S. clinical trials for the T2Resistance® Panel and the T2Biothreat™ Panel, and advancing the development of the next-generation instrument and the comprehensive sepsis panel.
  • Received Option 3 of the contract with BARDA, valued at $3.7 million, to finalize U.S. clinical trials and complete FDA submission for the T2Biothreat™ Panel and the T2Resistance® Panel, which we plan to submit to the FDA in the fourth quarter of 2022 and early 2023, respectively.
  • Expanded commercialization into the Baltic region, including Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia, by entering into a distribution agreement.
  • Cash, cash equivalents, marketable securities, and restricted cash totaled $21.5 million as of September 30, 2022. Third quarter cash used in operations totaled $12.1 million, cash used to purchase other working capital and equipment was $3.6 million, and cash provided by ATM proceeds was $22.9 million.

“Our third quarter results demonstrate continued market penetration with our sepsis products, driven by global adoption of our T2Dx Instrument and increased sales of our sepsis test panels, including 12% growth from the prior year period and 26% growth from the second quarter of 2022. We have updated our 2022 financial outlook to reflect a moderated but continued growth in sepsis and related product sales, and reductions in BARDA revenue and COVID-19 sales. While the conversion of COVID-driven instruments to sepsis testing has been slower than expected, this continues to represent a meaningful growth opportunity and is an area of focus for our U.S. sales team,” stated John Sperzel, Chairman and CEO of T2 Biosystems. “Our new product pipeline includes several near-term potential growth drivers that we believe offer highly-differentiated value to customers, including the T2Biothreat Panel, the T2Resistance Panel, and the T2Lyme Panel. We are excited about the future and believe we can drive sustainable growth by providing clinicians with products that enable faster, targeted therapy.“

Updated 2022 Financial Outlook
The Company now expects full year 2022 total revenue of $22.0 to $23.0 million, including product revenue of $11.5 to $12.0 million and research contribution revenue of $10.5 to $11.0 million. The Company now expects to close 50 to 55 T2Dx Instrument contracts in 2022.
