Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.

On September 6, 2019, T2 Biosystems, Inc. (the “Company”), entered into an agreement (the “BARDA Agreement”) with the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (“BARDA”), which may provide up to $69 million in funding to support the further development of the Company’s portfolio of diagnostics for sepsis-causing pathogens and antibiotic-resistance genes, including a direct-from-blood panel for detection of biothreat pathogens, including threats such as B. anthracis, F. tularensis, Burkholderia spp., Y. pestis, R. prowazekii, and toxin genes; a separate panel that is expected to cover 99% of all bloodborne bacterial infections by means of greater than 36 reported results (including detection of greater than 250 species), including pan-Gram positive and pan-Gram negative results, in addition to the bloodborne antibiotic resistant threats identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; and a next-generation high-throughput instrument.

The BARDA Agreement is a cost-sharing contract that consists of an initial base period and seven option periods that BARDA may exercise in its sole discretion pursuant to the BARDA Agreement, subject to the Company achieving specified milestones and deliverables. The BARDA Agreement provides for initial commitment by BARDA of an aggregate of $6 million for the initial base period, and up to an additional $63 million if the remaining seven option periods are exercised by BARDA. Under the cost-sharing arrangement, T2 Biosystems will be responsible for a designated portion of the costs associated with each period of work. If all option periods are exercised by BARDA, the estimated period of performance would be extended until approximately August 2024. BARDA is entitled to terminate the projects under the BARDA Agreement for convenience at any time and is not obligated to provide continued funding beyond the base contract.

The foregoing summary is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Agreement, a copy of which will be attached as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ending September 30, 2019.
