T2 Biosystems, Inc. (the “Company”) was unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ending September 30, 2019 within the prescribed time period for the reasons described below.

As previously disclosed in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on November 13, 2019 and the press release furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to such Current Report, the Company was the target of a ransom cyberattack during the third quarter that affected certain of the Company’s information systems. The Company’s systems detected the attack and the Company immediately took its systems offline and commenced secure restoration of its electronic data processing (“EDP”) environment, including its enterprise resource planning (“ERP”) systems. The Company has employed an extensive process to confirm that the integrity of its confidential and proprietary information, financial systems and financial information was not compromised. As soon as it became aware of the attack, the Company immediately began an investigation of the event, including the engagement of third party specialists in forensic investigation and data systems to assist with the investigation and remediation in order to understand the full implications of this event. The Company’s information technology systems have recovered from the cyberattack, other than completing the process of inputting data in the ERP system, and the interruption caused by the attack did not materially affect the Company’s operations. The Company did not pay a ransom and worked with the external forensics firm to determine that there was no evidence that customer or company data was exfiltrated. Nevertheless, the efforts to respond to the attack and to recover from its impact have resulted in a delay in the completion of the Company’s financial statements for the third quarter. Additional time is required in order to input expense and other information into the ERP systems and to complete the review of those financial statements by the Company’s independent auditors.

Forward-Looking Statements

These statements include the Company’s expectations regarding its financial results disclosed in its Current Report on Form 8-K filed on November 13, 2019 and the press release furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to such Current Report and the Company’s expectations that it will file its Form 10-Q within the time period prescribed by Rule 12b-25.
