Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

 

On October 21, 2021, Precision BioSciences, Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release in which the Company stated that it expects to report that it had approximately $160.5 million in cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2021, although it has not finalized its full financial results for the quarter ended September 30, 2021. This estimate is unaudited and preliminary and does not present all information necessary for an understanding of the Company’s financial condition as of September 30, 2021 and its results of operations for the three and nine months then ended. The Company also reported that management believes that, as of October 20, 2021, the Company’s existing cash and cash equivalents, expected operational receipts and available credit will allow the Company to continue its operations into 2023. The review of the Company’s financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm is ongoing and could result in changes to the information set forth above.  

 

A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

The information contained in this Current Report on Form 8-K (including Exhibit 99.1) shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that Section, nor shall it be deemed to be incorporated by reference into any filing of the Company under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
