Nov 07, 2022

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 07, 2022 (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 quarter ended September 30, 2022.

“We are encouraged with recent progress and are on track to ship G4 units in Q4. We continue to increase our engagement with prospective customers and the value proposition is resonating. The G4 offers superior performance specifications in metrics that matter most across our target markets, such as data output rate, run time, flow cell and lane-to-lane flexibility, and number of reads per run,” said Drew Spaventa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “Looking ahead, we remain dedicated to our near-term plans to scale G4 system availability and remain on track to ship additional G4 systems in the fourth quarter of 2022.”

Recent Highlights

  • On track to ship G4 systems in the fourth quarter of 2022
  • Executed additional library prep partnerships with Paragon Genomics and Claret Bioscience to validate their library prep kits for use with the G4 sequencer
  • Added key customer-facing sales executives across key geographies in the Americas region
  • Showcased the G4 system and engaged prospective customers and KOLs at the American Society of Human Genetics conference

Third Quarter 2022 Financial Results

Operating expenses for the third quarter of 2022 totaled $24.7 million compared to $17.5 million for the third quarter of 2021. Operating expenses included non-cash stock-based compensation expense of $3.4 million in the third quarter of 2022 and $2.9 million in the third quarter of 2021. The year-over-year increase in total operating expenses was driven primarily by scaling headcount and infrastructure to support our growth, including the G4 launch, product pipeline and R&D roadmap.

Net loss for the third quarter of 2022 was $23.8 million, or $0.33 per common share, compared to $17.6 million, or $0.25 per common share, for the third quarter of 2021.

Cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments, excluding restricted cash, as of September 30, 2022 totaled $263.8 million.
