Calyxt Reports Financial Results for Second Quarter and Half-Year 2018

Inc. (NASDAQ:CLXT), a consumer-centric, food- and
agriculture-focused company, today announced its results for the
three-month period and the first half period ended June 30, 2018.

The first half of 2018 saw significant growth of the Company’s lead
product candidate, a non-GMO, high-oleic soybean variety, designed to
yield soybean oil with over 80% oleic oil content that is completely
trans fat free. With over 17,000 acres planted, Calyxt surpassed its
initial goal of 12,000 acres, with over 90% of existing farmers
re-planting. With the commercial launch of this product in the US later
this year, Calyxt is well positioned within the industry, following the
FDA ban on all trans fats in the U.S. going into effect in 2018. Calyxt
also welcomes the recently unveiled World Health Organization’s plan to
remove all trans fats worldwide from the food chain by 2023.

The recent move into its new state-of-the-art, farm-to-kitchen facility
enables Calyxt to accelerate and expand its product pipeline, with a
continued focus on a variety of pressing health- and agronomic needs.

Financial Highlights

Cash and cash equivalents were $105.6 million at June 30, 2018. We
intend to continue to judiciously manage the use of cash and expect to
have sufficient cash to fund the business until late 2020. Cellectis
remains our majority shareholder with 70.24% of our common stock as of
June 30, 2018.

Pursuant to the follow-on offering, in aggregate, the Company received
net proceeds of approximately $57.0 million, after deducting
underwriting discounts and commissions of $3.2 million and offering
expenses totaling approximately $0.7 million. As part of the follow-on
offering, Cellectis purchased 550,000 shares of common stock for a value
of $8.3 million, the proceeds of which are included in the net proceeds
of approximately $57.0 million.

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, we incurred losses from
operations of $7.6 million and used net cash in operating activities of
$2.3 million. For the six months ended June 30, 2018, we incurred losses
from operations of $11.9 million and used net cash in operating
activities of $8.8 million. The first semester cash spend includes
spending on high-oleic soybean seed production to support our Spring
2018 planting of high-oleic soybeans.

Looking forward for the rest of 2018, we anticipate that our operating
cash spend will be in the range of $2.0 to $2.2 million per month
excluding working capital for grain purchases in the later part of 2018.
Cash will be used to expand our R&D team to advance key products in the
portfolio and continue to build our commercial capabilities.
