Exhibit 99.1




Bluejay Diagnostics, Inc. Reports Third Quarter 2023 Financial Results


Acton, Massachusetts, November 9, 2023 – Bluejay Diagnostics, Inc. (NASDAQ: BJDX) (“Bluejay” or the “Company”), a clinical-stage medical diagnostics company developing rapid, near-patient tests using whole blood on its Symphony platform to improve patient outcomes in critical care settings, today reported its financial results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2023.


Based on FDA’s feedback from the August 11, 2023, meeting, the Company focused on implementing the modified clinical strategy that puts us on the most efficient pathway and believes that it would submit for regulatory approval for Symphony IL-6 during the first half of 2024 as planned. Furthermore, we have re-negotiated our licensing agreement with Toray Industries, Inc. to include a reduced royalty payment from 15% to 7.5% of net sales of certain cartridges for a term of 10 years. A 50% reduction in the royalty rate applies upon expiry of applicable Toray patents on a product-by-product and country-by-country basis. The new license agreement contemplates that applicable royalty payment obligations from the Company to Toray for other products will be determined separately by the parties in the future. Overall, the re-negotiated licensing agreement provides Bluejay with more freedom to operate, and better secures long-term licensing of Toray’s patents and know-how around the Symphony technology In addition, we have re-negotiated our supply agreement with Toray Industries, Inc. to ensure critical Symphony Cartridge component supply that will sustain us through clinical studies,” said Neil Dey, CEO of Bluejay Diagnostics.


Symphony IL-6 has the potential to be an influential tool for the prediction of clinical deterioration in sepsis patients. Symphony IL-6 testing, in conjunction with clinical and other diagnostic findings, may enable healthcare providers to better prioritize appropriate care to help improve outcomes for those at high risk, and potentially avoid unnecessary investigations and treatments in those at low risk. IL-6 appears as a ‘first responder’ inflammatory biomarker in blood during inflammation, which is common in diseases and infections. A current unmet challenge for healthcare professionals is the amount of time it takes to identify sepsis in patients and to determine disease severity. Existing technologies typically take several hours to deliver IL-6 results, which can delay critical treatment decisions that could improve patient outcomes.


“We are confident that our planned clinical and analytical studies may support a 510(k) FDA regulatory submission with an initial indication for risk stratification of hospitalized sepsis patients. In order for us to realize this, we have continued to limit our cash burn while executing our clinical and regulatory strategy for the Symphony IL-6 test,” said Neil Dey, CEO of Bluejay Diagnostics.


Financial Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2023


Cash and cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents on September 30, 2023 were $5.08 million, as compared to $10.1 million on December 31, 2022. The Company has maintained a slow cash burn during its FDA submission process. The Company estimates cash resources will be sufficient to fund its operations into the first quarter of 2024. The Company will need additional capital to fund its planned operations for the next 12 months. The Company expects that it will seek to raise such additional capital through public or private equity offerings, grant financing and support from governmental agencies, convertible debt, collaborations, strategic alliances and distribution arrangements.


Research and development expense. Research and development expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 were $1.39 million and $4.42 million, respectively, as compared to $1.37 million and $2.83 million, respectively, for the comparable periods in 2022. The increase in research and development expenses is due to the expansion of our clinical program and to support scale-up manufacturing of the Symphony technology platform and IL-6 Test.


General and administrative expense. General and administrative expenses for the three and nine months ended September 2023 were $0.96 million and $3.21 million, respectively, as compared to $1.28 million and $3.8 million, respectively, for the comparable periods in 2022. The decrease in general and administrative expenses reflects the Company’s focus on clinical program and manufacturing scale-up.


Sales and marketing expense. Sales and marketing expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 were $(19,619) and $282,756, respectively, as compared to $146,102 and $281,144, respectively, for the comparable periods in 2022. While these expenses have been limited to date, we expect to increase these efforts when appropriate to support our commercial growth.


Net loss/Net loss per share. The net loss for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 was $2.29 million and $7.65 million, or $2.08 and $7.30 per share, respectively, compared to $2.9 million and $6.9 million, or $2.94 and $6.86 per share, respectively, for the comparable periods in 2022.
