Financial Results

Seres reported a net loss of $21.9 million for the third quarter of 2018, as compared to a net loss of $6.9 million for the same period in 2017. The third quarter net loss was driven primarily by clinical and development expenses, personnel expenses, and ongoing development of the Company’s microbiome therapeutics platform. The third quarter net loss figure was inclusive of $9.1 million in recognized revenue primarily associated with the Company’s collaboration with Nestlé Health Science.

Research and development expenses for the third quarter were $23.7 million, as compared to $22.2 million for the same period in 2017. The research and development expenses were primarily related to Seres’ microbiome therapeutics platform, the clinical development of SER-109, SER-262 and SER-287, as well as the Company’s SER-301, SER-155 and immuno-oncology preclinical programs.

General and administrative expenses for the third quarter were $7.6 million, as compared to $8.1 million for the same period in the prior year. General and administrative expenses were primarily due to headcount, professional fees, and facility costs.

The decrease in cash, cash equivalents and investments balance during the quarter was $23.2 million. Seres ended the third quarter with approximately $72.9 million in cash, cash equivalents and investments. Current resources, that do not include $40 million of milestone payments that the Company expects to receive following the initiation of the SER-287 Phase 2b study, are expected to fund the Company into the second quarter of 2019.
