Exhibit 99.1

SenesTech Announces Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results

Revenue Growth Up 44%; Net Loss Improved by Almost $700,000

Company to Begin Shipments of Evolve Soft Bait Next Week

Expected to Be a Key Driver of Revenue Growth

PHOENIX, Ariz., November 9, 2023. SenesTech, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNES, “SenesTech” or the “Company”), (www.senestech.com) the leader in fertility control to manage animal pest populations, today announced financial results for the third quarter of 2023.

“We accelerated our growth trajectory during the third quarter with strong 44% year-over-year growth in revenues driven by the initiatives we have undertaken to drive sales, improve our product quality, and expand our product options,” commented Joel Fruendt, SenesTech’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We expect this growth to further accelerate as we launch our Evolve Soft Bait, the first and only soft bait developed to control pest populations using a breakthrough technology that targets the rat population where it starts, by restricting fertility through nonlethal methods. We have received pre-orders and expect to start shipping product next week.”

Sales growth during the third quarter was led by increases in nearly every key market segment, including agribusiness, zoos and sanctuaries, and commercial. The Company also continued to experience sequential revenue growth and an improvement of its return on marketing investment within its e-commerce platform following the successful reconfiguration of those operations earlier this year. Overall, the various initiatives led to an improvement of nearly $700,000 in its net loss and Adjusted EBITDA loss compared to the year-ago period.

Fruendt continued, “We have made several operational improvements to drive revenue growth more efficiently, with an objective of reaching profitability in the near future.”

The launch of the Evolve Soft Bait is expected to be a significant step in expanding SenesTech’s reach within key market verticals, including ‘big box’ retailers, key e-commerce channels, and pest management professionals. Evolve is highly palatable to rats, easy to deploy, and offers diverse placement in many different and complex environments, including municipalities, parks, recreation facilities, sports venues, food processing facilities, correctional facilities, subways, medical facilities, agribusiness, zoos, and residential locations. Importantly, Evolve is priced competitively to currently available rodenticide alternatives.

“Our initial focus will be on the commercial market and key industry distributors. In addition, we have established our vendor account with Amazon and are pursuing the process of selling through their portal, as well as other e-commerce providers. Finally, we are initiating discussions with key big box retailers to offer Evolve on their shelves,” added Fruendt.

The introduction of Evolve continues SenesTech’s recent string of innovative evolution in its product offerings designed to provide customers with the effectiveness of fertility control in the format that fits their needs. In July 2023, the Isolate Bait System was launched as a more efficient and easier-to-use liquid bait system, which integrates both the tank and tray as a single unit. In October, Isolate represented over a third of all unit sales. Last year, the Company introduced Elevate, an easily deployed system for mounting in the rafters of barns,

granaries, attics, lofts, and storage and manufacturing facilities. Year-to-date, nearly 5,500 Elevate systems have been deployed in various agricultural settings.

“Product innovation is key to our future success. Building upon the recent introductions of the Isolate and Elevate bait systems for ContraPest, Evolve was developed to offer customers a soft bait product that has similar efficacy to ContraPest, but in a format that is easier to deploy and in a format they can use daily in their integrated pest management programs,” Fruendt continued. “A key differentiating feature for Evolve is the opportunity to distribute through key big box retailers and e-commerce providers. We are in active negotiations, with a goal to develop partnerships that will dramatically increase the adoption of the Evolve solution and to set SenesTech up for tremendous success in the future.”

Q3 2023 Highlights

Revenue during Q3 2023 was $360,000 compared to $250,000 in Q3 2022, an increase of 44%.

Gross profit during Q3 2023 was $176,000, for a gross profit margin of 49%, compared to $122,000, or a gross profit margin of 49%, in Q3 2022.

Net loss during Q3 2023 was $1.9 million, compared with a net loss of $2.6 million for Q3 2022.

Adjusted EBITDA loss, which is a non-GAAP measure of operating performance, for Q3 2023 was $1.7 million compared to $2.4 million in Q3 2022.

Cash at the end of September 2023 was $2.1 million.

Use of Non-GAAP Measure

Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP measure. However, this measure is not intended to substitute for those financial measures reported in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA has been included because management believes that, when considered together with the GAAP figures, it provides meaningful information related to our operating performance and liquidity and can enhance an overall understanding of financial results and trends. Adjusted EBITDA may be calculated by us differently than other companies that disclose measures with the same or similar term. See our attached financials for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to the nearest GAAP measure.
