HTG Announces Certain Preliminary 2022 Unaudited Financial Results

Preliminary full year 2022 unaudited revenue of $6.4 million

Cash and cash equivalents of $12.2 million as of December 31, 2022

TUCSON, Ariz., Jan. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HTG Molecular Diagnostics, Inc. (Nasdaq: HTGM) (HTG), a life science company advancing precision medicine through its innovative transcriptome-wide profiling and advanced medicinal chemistry technology, today announced certain preliminary, unaudited financial results for the year ended December 31, 2022.

Total revenue for the full year 2022 is expected to be approximately $6.4 million, including approximately $2.7 million of HTG Transcriptome Panel (HTP) revenue representing 42% of our total revenue. Cash and cash equivalents are approximately $12.2 million as of December 31, 2022.

“While our full year revenue did not show the level of recovery anticipated in 2022, we believe that our Q4 and full year results reflect positive trends,” said John Lubniewski, CEO of HTG. “First, we are encouraged to see revenue grow by nearly 95% from the third quarter to the fourth quarter of 2022. This revenue includes both orders from customers who have previously adopted our technology and are regularly reordering kits and services, as well as orders from new customers. The year-over-year revenue also reflects an increase from 2021 to 2022 of $1.3 million of HTP revenue, demonstrating growing demand for this potentially transformational product. Second, our preliminary cash and equivalents position shows a strengthened balance sheet. Considering recent revenue performance in our profiling business, we are focused on right-sizing this business, increasing efficiencies and minimizing spend without jeopardizing our ability to generate higher levels of profiling revenue or impacting our drug discovery milestones. As we look toward the rest of 2023, we are hopeful a leaner profiling business will continue to provide value to our customers, driving quality revenue and further adoption of our technology while supporting our therapeutics initiative.”

The preliminary results set forth above are unaudited, are based on management’s initial review of the company’s results as of and for the year ended December 31, 2022 and are subject to revision based upon the company’s year-end closing procedures and the completion and external audit of the company’s year-end financial statements. Actual results may differ materially from these preliminary unaudited results as a result of the completion of year-end closing procedures, final adjustments and other developments arising between now and the time that the company’s financial results are finalized, and such changes could be material. In addition, these preliminary unaudited results are not a comprehensive statement of the company’s financial results for the year ended December 31, 2022, should not be viewed as a substitute for full, audited financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and are not necessarily indicative of the company’s results for any future period.

The company expects to announce full 2022 financial results in advance of its quarterly conference call in March 2023.
