The company disclosed VOWST™ net sales of $7.6 million, surpassing projected estimates. VOWST, a collaborative product between Nestlé Health Science and Seres, is designed to thwart the recurrence of Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI) in adults.

Additionally, Seres revealed a strategic restructuring initiative aimed at channeling resources toward the commercialization of VOWST and the finalization of the SER-155 Phase 1b study. This restructuring encompasses a 41% reduction in the current workforce, poised to yield an annual cash savings of approximately $75-$85 million in 2024. It is anticipated that the company will incur a one-time charge of $5.0-$5.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2023, primarily attributable to the workforce reduction.

Seres Therapeutics Inc. (MCRB, Financial) reported a net loss of $47.9 million for the third quarter of 2023, a decrease from the $60.0 million net loss recorded during the same period in 2022. As of the conclusion of the third quarter in 2023, the company’s cash, cash equivalents, and investments totaled $169.9 million, as opposed to $181.3 million at the end of 2022.

The company’s restructuring efforts are poised to yield substantial savings and fortify its foundation for long-term business viability. Seres foresees that its cash reserves, combined with the anticipated savings from the restructuring and the impending receipt of the $45 million Tranche B under its existing senior secured debt facility with Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. (Oaktree), will sustain its operations through the fourth quarter of 2024.

Seres Therapeutics Inc. stands eligible for Tranche B under the Term Loan Facility upon the achievement of trailing 6-month VOWST net sales totaling at least $35 million, no later than September 30, 2024, and contingent upon meeting other applicable conditions.

“Seres Therapeutics’ Q3 results and strategic restructuring signal a proactive approach towards sustained growth and long-term success in the field of microbiome therapeutics.”
