Biocept, Inc. (Nasdaq: BIOC), a leading provider of molecular diagnostic assays, products and services, announces a delay in the filing of its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The delay is related to the ongoing accounting review of Biocept’s financial statements as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2022, which ongoing review is a result of a change in circumstances at the U.S. Health Resources Services Administration (HRSA) and the resulting impact on its funding for reimbursement for COVID-19 testing services, including those performed by Biocept.
Biocept expects to file its Form 10-Q on or before May 23, 2022. The company intends to issue a press release announcing financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 along with the filing of the Form 10-Q, and in that press release intends to provide a date and time for an investment community conference call to discuss first quarter 2022 financial results as well as the company’s business strategy.
