Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

 

On February 17, 2022, iSpecimen Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”) issued a press release (“Earnings Release”) announcing its financial and operating results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021. A copy of the press release is furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report. You are advised that financial information in the Earnings Release for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 is based on preliminary uuaudited financial statements prepared by management. Accordingly, such financial information may be subject to change and while the Company does not expect there to be any material changes, any variation between the financial information provided in the Earnings Release and actual results may be material. The Company expects to file its audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 with its 2021 Annual Report on Form 10-K on or before March 31, 2022.

 

The Earnings Release contains certain statements and information that speak to the Company’s expectations or predictions of the future. These statements and information may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond the Company’s control, which could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by these statements. Please see the Company’s disclosures regarding risk factors and forward-looking statements in its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) (including Current Reports on Form 8-K, Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q, and Annual Report on Form 10-K) for a discussion of the known material factors that could cause the Company’s actual results to differ materially from those indicated or implied by such forward-looking statements.

 

The information in this Item 2.02 and Exhibit 99.1 attached hereto will not be deemed “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act or otherwise subject to the liability of that section, nor will it be incorporated by reference in any filing under the Securities Act, or the Exchange Act, except as expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.

 

Item 7.01. Regulation FD Disclosure.

 

The Company held a conference call on February 17, 2022 (“Earnings Call”) in which it discussed its fourth quarter 2021 and fiscal year 2021 results. During the Earnings Call the Company provided an investor presentation, dated February 2022 (the “Presentation”), which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.2 and incorporated by reference herein. The Presentation has also been posted on the Company’s website and can be accessed at https://investors.ispecimen.com/. The Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update the Presentation or any other information posted on or available through its website, and cautions that the information set forth therein is only accurate as of the date indicated on such materials. The inclusion of any data or statements in the Presentation (or available on or through the Company’s website) does not signify that such information is considered material.

Forward-Looking Statement

 

This Current Report on Form 8-K may contain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act and Section 21E of the Exchange Act. Such forward-looking statements are characterized by future or conditional verbs such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “intend,” “anticipate,” believe,” “estimate” and “continue” or similar words. You should read statements that contain these words carefully because they discuss future expectations and plans, which contain projections of future results of operations or financial condition or state other forward-looking information. Such statements are only predictions and the Company’s actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements.

 

There may be events in the future that the Company is not able to accurately predict or control. Factors that may cause such differences include, but are not limited to, those discussed under risk factors in the Company’s registration statement and other filings filed with the SEC, including the uncertainties associated with the Company’s lack of profitability, its continued capital needs, its lack of a long operating history, its growth strategy, the COVID-19 pandemic and its continued impact on the business, its technology development plans, and the regulatory environment in which it operates. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. The Company does not assume any obligation to update forward-looking statements as circumstances change. The Company gives no assurance that it will achieve its expectations.

 

 

You may access the Company’s SEC filings by visiting SEC’s website at http://www.sec.gov. This Current Report does not constitute an offer or invitation for the sale or purchase of securities or to engage in any other transaction with the Company or its affiliates. The information in this Current Report is not targeted at the residents of any particular country or jurisdiction and is not intended for distribution to, or use by, any person in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to local law or regulation.
