Management Discussion

“I am extremely pleased with the rapid revenue growth during the first quarter of 78%, resulting in record quarterly revenues, driven by the rapid adoption in the marketplace of Evolve, our all-new soft bait product to control rat populations by restricting fertility,” commented Joel Fruendt, President and CEO of SenesTech. “During the first quarter, Evolve accounted for more than 50% of sales, as distributors and end customers have quickly understood the benefits our new solution provides.”

“In addition to the strong performance in the first quarter, we have achieved key commercial and development milestones which help set the stage for the rest of 2024. On the commercial side, we took a significant step forward in the distribution capabilities of Evolve through the launch of a dedicated online store on Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer. We also signed agreements with leading manufacturers rep firms to increase Evolve’s presence in retailers and industrial suppliers. On the development front, we significantly increased the size of our addressable market through the launch of Evolve Mouse in May 2024. Evolve Mouse is SenesTech’s first population control solution outside of rats, highlighting the first step in our long-term product evolution roadmap to bring fertility control solutions to a wide variety of animal pests,” Fruendt continued.

“The last few months have been the most exciting and productive time in SenesTech’s history. We have achieved record quarterly revenues; launched Evolve, which has quickly become our biggest selling product line; expanded our distribution footprint to address key end markets, geographies, and channels; and expanded our addressable market with the launch of our first new rodent line extension. We are extremely pleased with the progress the team has made in 2024 and look forward to the positive impact the many recent initiatives we have implemented will produce,” Fruendt concluded.

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.
