STONY BROOK, N.Y. – August 13, 2019 - Applied DNA Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: APDN) (“Applied DNA” or the "Company"), announced consolidated financial results for the fiscal 2019 third quarter ended June 30, 2019. “Our fiscal third quarter performance reflects our continuing abilities to monetize our molecular taggant technology and our diagnostic and therapeutic platforms while also realigning our cost structure and reorienting our sales and business development efforts to support new opportunities,” said Dr. James A. Hayward, chairman, president and CEO of Applied DNA. “Revenues increased over 100% this quarter over the same period last fiscal year and increased 164% quarter over quarter, supplemented by the receipt of a $1 million cash payment under the terms of our exclusive licensing agreement with TheraCann International Benchmark Corporation (TheraCann).”

 

“After the close of the quarter we received a written delisting notice from Nasdaq regarding our non-compliance with the requirements for a $1.00 bid price and $35 million market value of listed securities. We are diligently working to comply with all applicable requirements for continued listing on Nasdaq and we intend to submit a plan to that effect to the NASDAQ Hearings Panel as part of the hearing process,” continued Dr. Hayward. “As part of our plan, we secured a non-binding term sheet from TheraCann for the outstanding $4 million balance under our licensing agreement in the form of $4 million in convertible preferred stock as well as an incremental $1 million convertible note. We also raised $1.5 million through a convertible note offering, which increases our current convertible notes outstanding to approximately $3.7 million. If any portion of these notes were to convert into common stock, it would increase our equity as a further step towards facilitating Nasdaq compliance. We are engaged in Nasdaq’s appeal process, and I am pleased to report that we have secured a hearing for September 19, 2019 that allows us additional time to execute on the balance of our plan. However, we can not provide assurance that we will be successful in our NASDAQ appeal.”

 

Concluded, Dr. Hayward, “As we projected last quarter, our growth is coming from cannabis, textiles and biotherapeutics. Looking ahead, we remain focused on growth supported by these business verticals. TheraCann’s ETCHTM BioTrace solution powered by our tagging platform is attracting the attention of large cannabis players. We will soon launch our CertainTâ brand into the cotton apparel market. Initial product from our recently completed tagging program for Egyptian cotton is being used to build demand among brands and manufacturers. Our LineaRx subsidiary is increasingly being viewed within the biotech industry as a cleaner, higher-performing alternative to plasmid DNA production that is converting to increased order-flow. We have a burgeoning pipeline and growing scientific and intellectual property assets following the recent acquisition by LineaRx of the assets and IP of Vitatex, Inc. that further broaden our platform’s applicability in the potentially high-reward cancer diagnostic and therapeutic spaces. Just last week we submitted to the NIH our application for a 3-year, approximately $4 million SBIR Phase IIb grant to be matched with funding being sought from commercial 3rd parties, that, if granted, will fund the full commercialization of the Vitatex platform for early detection of non-hematologic cancers.”
