NEW YORK – T2 Biosystems disclosed in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday it received a warning letter from the Nasdaq Stock Market because its stock price has been below $1 for at least 30 consecutive business days.

The Lexington, Massachusetts-based firm also disclosed in SEC documents on Wednesday that it has terminated a master definitive agreement with Lincoln Park Capital Fund and amended an equity distribution agreement with investment bank Canaccord Genuity.

T2 Bio said that under a July 2019 Lincoln Park Capital Fund purchase agreement, T2 Bio sold a total of 400,000 shares for net proceeds of about $318,400.

As part of the amendment, the total amount in securities the firm may offer from time to time was increased to $95 million from a previous amount of $65 million. As of April 8, T2 Bio had sold 73.2 million shares with an aggregate offering price of about $48.1 million, leaving an aggregate offering price of up to $46.9 million remaining under the supplement.

According to the SEC filing, T2 will use the net proceeds for working capital and general corporate purposes, which may include funding commercialization efforts and R&D activities.
