Item 8.01

Other Events.

Singular Genomics Systems, Inc. (the “Company”) today announced that it filed a Shelf Registration Statement on Form S-3 (the “Registration Statement”) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on July 19, 2022. The Company considered it to be prudent and consistent with good corporate practices to file the Registration Statement at this time to provide flexibility for raising capital in the future if the Company decides to do so. Given the Company’s current position in cash and short-term investments, which was approximately $316.0 million as of March 31, 2022, the Company has no current plans to issue securities under the Registration Statement.

The Registration Statement contains (i) a base prospectus registering the sale of up to $250.0 million in the aggregate of the Company’s securities in one or more offerings and (ii) a sales agreement prospectus covering the “at the market” offering, pursuant to which the Company may offer and sell up to $100.0 million of the Company’s common stock (the “Shares”) under a sales agreement entered into (the “Sales Agreement”) with Cowen and Company, LLC dated July 19, 2022 (the “Sales Agent”). The Company is not obligated to make any sales of Shares under the Sales Agreement. The foregoing description of the Sales Agreement is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreements, a copy of which is filed as Exhibit 1.2 to the Registration Statement and is incorporated herein by reference.

This Current Report on Form 8-K shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy the Shares, nor shall there be any offer, solicitation or sale of the Shares in any state in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such state.
