AgeX Therapeutics Reports Second Quarter 2021 Financial Results

08/13/2021

AgeX Therapeutics, Inc. (“AgeX”; NYSE American: AGE), a biotechnology company developing therapeutics for human aging and regeneration, reported its financial and operating results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of August 13, 2021, AgeX has $2.0 million of funds remaining for borrowings under two credit facilities from Juvenescence Limited (“Juvenescence”). In addition, AgeX may sell up to $12.1 million of its common stock in “at-the-market” transactions through a Sales Agreement with Chardan Capital, LLC as a sales agent.

Going Concern Considerations

As required under Accounting Standards Update 2014-15, Presentation of Financial Statements-Going Concern (ASC 205-40), AgeX evaluates whether conditions and/or events raise substantial doubt about its ability to meet its future financial obligations as they become due within one year after the date its financial statements are issued. Based on AgeX’s most recent projected cash flows, AgeX believes that its cash and cash equivalents and available sources of debt and equity capital would not be sufficient to satisfy AgeX’s anticipated operating and other funding requirements for the twelve months following the filing of AgeX’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three and six months ended June 30, 2021. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the ability of AgeX to continue as a going concern.

Balance Sheet Information

Cash, and cash equivalents, and restricted cash totaled $0.7 million as of June 30, 2021. Since July 1, 2021, AgeX has received an additional $1.0 million of cash through a loan from Juvenescence.

Second Quarter 2021 Operating Results

The following comparisons exclude the impact of the operations of LifeMap Sciences, Inc. (“LifeMap Sciences”) which have been presented in AgeX’s consolidated financial results as discontinued operations for all periods presented due to the disposition of AgeX’s shares of LifeMap Sciences in a cash-out merger during March 2021.

Revenues: Total revenues for the second quarter of 2021 were $37,000 as compared with $45,000 for the second quarter of 2020, primarily comprised of allowable expenses under a research grant from the NIH and sales of research products including stem cell products.

Operating expenses: Operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2021 were $2.2 million as compared to $2.4 million for the same period in 2020.

Research and development expenses decreased by $0.4 million to $0.5 million during the three months ended June 30, 2021 from $0.9 million during the same period of 2020. The decrease was primarily attributable to a reduction in research and development related activities that began in May 2020.

General and administrative expenses increased by $0.2 million to $1.7 million during the three months ended June 30, 2021 from $1.5 million during the same period in 2020 due to increased insurance premiums and certain non-recurring project related expenses incurred during 2021 offset by a decrease in personnel related expenses, including non-cash stock-based compensation, and a decrease in facilities, rent and overhead expenses following the expiration of AgeX’s office and laboratory lease at the end of 2020. Effective January 1, 2021, AgeX relocated its principal offices under a one year leased space at a lower rent that includes office space, office furniture rental, janitorial services, utilities and internet service.

Other income, net: Other income, net in 2021 consists primarily of approximately $437,000 gain recognized upon forgiveness of a Paycheck Protection Program or PPP loan, including accrued interest, during February 2021, offset by amortization of deferred debt cost to interest expense. Other expense, net in 2020 consisted primarily of amortization of deferred debt cost to interest expense.
