Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

Avidity Biosciences, Inc. (the “Company”) estimates that its cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities were approximately $279.5 million as of June 30, 2021. This amount is unaudited and preliminary and is subject to completion of financial closing procedures. As a result, this amount may differ materially from the amount that will be reflected in the Company’s financial statements as of and for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

The information in this Item 2.02 shall not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, nor shall it be deemed incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such a filing.
