HTGM

Call scheduled for today, August 11, 2022, at 4:30 pm ET

TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HTG Molecular Diagnostics, Inc. (Nasdaq: HTGM) (HTG), a life science company advancing precision medicine through its innovative transcriptome-wide profiling technology, today reported recent business highlights and financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Throughout the quarter ended June 30, 2022, the Company's technology and strategic development efforts were highlighted in a number of customer and KOL presentations and publications including, but not limited to, the following:

  • A webinar titled “Integration of the HTG Transcriptome Panel into Preclinical and Clinical Programs to Drive Precision Medicine Research” featuring Pete Ansell, Ph.D., Scientific Director and Research Fellow, Precision Medicine Oncology at AbbVie, addressed how Dr. Ansell and his team at AbbVie have overcome many challenges they have previously faced using FFPE clinical samples by integrating the HTG Transcriptome Panel (HTP) into their biomarker strategies.

  • In a keynote presentation at the 7th Annual Markets and Markets Biomarker and Companion Diagnostics Conference in San Diego, CA, titled “Implementing Biomarker Strategy in Clinical Trials,” Chetan Deshpande, Director, Biomarker Clinical Assay Lead, Global Product Development at Pfizer discussed the challenges that are generally faced in clinical trials and how Pfizer has leveraged HTG’s proprietary gene expression profiling HTG EdgeSeq technology in multiple clinical trials to overcome these challenges.

  • The first peer-reviewed journal article featuring our HTP was published by one of the participants in our Early Adopter Program in Frontiers in Medicine less than one year after the commercial release of the product.

  • The Company published a second white paper, further establishing the utility of its transcriptome-informed approach to drug design and discovery utilizing its proprietary HTG EdgeSeq technology.

  • A webinar addressing "Drug Candidate Attrition - How to Improve Clinical Development Success and Patent Outcomes," including a presentation from key opinion leader, Dr. Robert Spitale, PhD, University of California - Irvine, further outlined the potential uses of RNA-based platform technologies in drug discovery.

In July 2022, the Company entered into an amendment to its June 24, 2020 Loan and Security Agreement (“LSA”) with its lender, Silicon Valley Bank. Under the terms of the amendment, Silicon Valley Bank agreed to waive the existing financial covenant through the remaining term of the LSA in exchange for a partial prepayment of outstanding principal. The remaining principal will continue to amortize through December 2023, the original maturity date of the term loan.

Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2022 was $1.5 million, compared with $2.1 million for the same period in 2021, and was comprised entirely of product and product-related services revenue.
