Twist Bioscience Addresses Misleading Short-Seller Report
Twist to report fiscal Q4 and full year 2022 financial results before market Friday, November 18, and host a conference call at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time
SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Twist Bioscience Corporation (NASDAQ: TWST), a company enabling customers to succeed through its offering of high-quality synthetic DNA using its silicon platform, today addressed a misleading short-seller report issued by Scorpion Capital.
Twist believes that the short-seller report issued by Scorpion Capital is highly misleading, with many distortions and inaccuracies. Unlike the author of the short-seller report, Twist is a public company, and is committed to communicating truthfully, creating value for all shareholders, and being good stewards of capital. In addition, Twist’s inaugural ESG report details the company’s environmental, social and governance practices at length, which Twist fully stands behind.
Twist remains focused on its mission to improve health and sustainability by manufacturing DNA at scale and on growing its business, including shipping product from the Factory of the Future in January 2023.
Twist will issue its financial results for the fiscal 2022 fourth quarter and full year ended September 30, 2022, before the opening of the market on Friday, November 18, 2022. The company plans to hold a conference call and live audio webcast for analysts and investors at 8:00 a.m. Eastern Time to discuss its financial results and provide an update on the company’s business.
The conference call will be webcast live through the Investor Relations section under the “Company” tab at www.twistbioscience.com. Those parties interested in participating via telephone must register on the Company’s Investor Relations website or by clicking here. Upon registration, all telephone participants will receive the dial-in number along with a unique PIN number that can be used to access the call. To avoid delays, we encourage participants to dial into the conference call fifteen minutes ahead of the scheduled start time. The webcast replay will be available for two weeks.
