Singular Genomics Reports Recent Highlights and Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Aug 09, 2023

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 09, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Singular Genomics Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: OMIC), a company leveraging novel next-generation sequencing (NGS) and multiomics technologies to empower researchers and clinicians, today highlighted recent corporate achievements and reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023.

“We made significant advancements across our operations, manufacturing and commercial infrastructure, and saw growth in our sales funnel. In addition, we shipped three G4 systems, commenced the broad commercial launch of F3 flow cells and consumable kits and are shipping Max Read kits for single cell sequencing to early access customers,” said Drew Spaventa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Singular Genomics. “These recent product launches, as well as our growing customer base and strong sales funnel, position us favorably to ramp commercialization of the G4 in the second half of 2023.”

Second Quarter and Recent Highlights

  • Generated revenue of $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2023.
  • Shipped three G4 systems in the second quarter of 2023, increasing the installed base of commercial systems shipped to 11 as of the end of the second quarter of 2023.
  • Commenced the broad commercial launch of the F3 flow cells and consumable kits, allowing users to get up to 450 million reads per flow cell, or 1.8 billion reads per run, for some of the most widely run applications.
  • Initiated shipments of Max Read kits for single cell sequencing to early access customers, enabling 800 million reads per flow cell, or 3.2 billion reads per run.
  • Expanded commercial infrastructure in Europe to support our international growth strategy.

Second Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenue for the second quarter of 2023 was $0.5 million, driven primarily by recognition of sales on two instrument placements.

Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2023 totaled $27.5 million, compared to $24.2 million for the second quarter of 2022. Operating expenses included non-cash stock-based compensation of $2.8 million for the second quarter of 2023 and $3.6 million for the second quarter of 2022. The year over year increase in total operating expenses was driven primarily by scaling headcount, facilities and infrastructure to support commercialization of the G4 and development of our product roadmap.

Net loss for the second quarter of 2023 was $25.6 million, or a loss of $0.35 per common share, compared to $24.0 million, or a loss of $0.34 per common share, in the second quarter of 2022.

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, excluding restricted cash, totaled $206.7 million as of June 30, 2023.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements contained in this press release, other than historical information, constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding: (i) our ability to successfully manufacture, commercialize and support the G4 and our F3 flow cells in accordance with our timelines, objectives and specifications; (ii) our ability to close sales in our sales funnel and effectively expand our international commercial presence and customer base; (iii) our ability to release Max Read kits to our broader customer base on our timeline; (iv) the ability of our product offerings to successfully compete with existing and new products offered by our competitors; (v) our ability to achieve customer and scientific acceptance of the G4; and (vi) quotes of management. Any such forward-looking statements are based on our management’s current expectations and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual future results to differ materially from our management’s current expectations or those implied by our forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, the following: (i) we have incurred significant losses since inception, we expect to incur significant losses in the future and we may not be able to generate sufficient revenue to achieve and maintain profitability; (ii) we have very little history manufacturing and commercializing our products or technology; (iii) the life sciences technology market is highly competitive, and if we fail to compete effectively, our business and operating results will suffer; (iv) if we are sued for infringing, misappropriating or otherwise violating intellectual property rights of third parties, such litigation could be costly and time consuming and could prevent or delay us from developing or commercializing our products; (v) if our products fail to achieve early customer and scientific acceptance, we may not be able to achieve broader market acceptance for our products, and our revenues and prospects may be harmed; (vi) we expect to be highly dependent upon revenue generated from the sale of the G4 and planned PX, and any delay or failure by us to successfully manufacture and commercialize the G4 and planned PX could have a substantial adverse effect on our business and results of operations; and (vii) recent macroeconomic challenges such as inflation and rising interest rates may materially and adversely impact, our business, operations and product manufacturing and commercialization objectives.
