Recursion Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (unaudited)
Note 1.    Description of the Business

Recursion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Recursion, the Company, we or our) was originally formed as a limited liability
company on November 4, 2013 under the name Recursion Pharmaceuticals, LLC. In September 2016, the Company converted to a Delaware corporation and changed its name to Recursion Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Recursion is a clinical stage TechBio company decoding biology to industrialize drug discovery. The Recursion Operating System (OS), a platform built across diverse technologies, enables the Company to map and navigate trillions of biological and chemical relationships within the Recursion Data Universe, one of the world’s largest proprietary biological and chemical datasets. The Company integrates physical and digital components as iterative loops of atoms and bits scaling wet lab biology and chemistry data organized into virtuous cycles with computational tools to rapidly translate in silico hypotheses into validated insights and novel chemistry.

As of June 30, 2023, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $781.6 million. The Company expects to incur substantial operating losses in future periods and will require additional capital to advance its drug candidates. The Company does not expect to generate significant revenue until the Company successfully completes significant drug development milestones with its subsidiaries or in collaboration with third parties, which the Company expects will take a number of years. In order to commercialize its drug candidates, the Company or its partners need to complete clinical development and comply with comprehensive regulatory requirements. The Company is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties similar to those of other companies of the same size within the biotechnology industry, such as the uncertainty of clinical trial outcomes, uncertainty of additional funding and a history of operating losses.

The Company has funded its operations to date primarily through the issuance of convertible preferred stock and the issuance of Class A common stock (see Note 8, “Common Stock” for additional details). Additionally, we have received payments of $180.0 million from our strategic partnerships (see Note 9, “Collaborative Development Contracts” for additional details). Recursion will likely be required to raise additional capital. As of June 30, 2023, the Company did not have any unconditional outstanding commitments for additional funding. Subsequent to June 30, 2023, Recursion entered into a private placement with NVIDIA Corporation (see Note 14, “Subsequent Events” for additional details). If the Company is unable to access additional funds when needed, it may not be able to continue the development of its products or the Company could be required to delay, scale back or abandon some or all of its development programs and other operations. The Company’s ability to access capital when needed is not assured and, if not achieved on a timely basis, could materially harm its business, financial condition and results of operations.

Recursion believes that the Company’s existing cash and cash equivalents will be sufficient to fund the Company’s operating expenses and capital expenditures for at least the next 12 months.

Note 2. Basis of Presentation

Basis of Presentation

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared pursuant to the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (U.S. GAAP) have been condensed or omitted. These unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements and notes for the year ended December 31, 2022.

It is management’s opinion that these condensed consolidated financial statements include all normal and recurring adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial statements. Revenue and net loss for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of future or annual results.

Table of Contents
Recent Accounting Pronouncements

New accounting pronouncements are routinely issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) or other standard setting bodies and adopted by Recursion as of the specified effective date. The Company does not expect the impact of recently issued standards that are not yet effective will have a material impact on its condensed consolidated financial statements and disclosures.

Depreciation expense on property and equipment was $4.0 million and $7.5 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, respectively, and $2.7 million and $5.4 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively. The Company recorded an impairment of $1.2 million and $2.8 million during the six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, related to construction projects for leasehold improvements as the Company no longer intended to use them. The impairments were recorded in “General and Administrative” in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

For the six months ended June 30, 2023, the Company initiated and completed a project to upgrade the BioHive supercomputer for $1.7 million. The supercomputer was classified as office equipment in the above table. The increase in lab equipment from the prior year was driven by the completion of several labs in the headquarters expansion. The majority of the balance was included in construction in progress in the prior year.

Note 4. Acquisitions

Results of operations of acquired companies are included in the Recursion results of operations as of the respective acquisition dates. The purchase price of each acquisition is allocated to the net assets acquired based on estimates of their fair values at the date of acquisition. Any purchase price in excess of these net assets is recorded as goodwill. The allocation of purchase price in certain cases may be subject to revision based on the final determination of fair values during the measurement period, which may be up to one year from the acquisition date.

Valence Discovery Inc.

On May 16, 2023, Recursion acquired all of the outstanding equity interests in Valence Discovery Inc. (Valence), a privately-held machine learning (ML) / artificial intelligence (AI) digital chemistry company. The integration of Valence’s AI-based chemistry engine into Recursion’s operating system will allow Recursion to expand its technology-enabled drug discovery process. This will accelerate Recursion’s digital chemistry capabilities and its drug discovery process.

The acquisition of Valence was accounted for as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting. The aggregate upfront consideration for the acquisition of Valence consisted of 2,168,020 shares of Recursion Class A common stock, 5,904,827 shares of a subsidiary of Recursion, exchangeable for shares of Recursion’s Class A common stock, 792,011 shares issued upon exercise of stock options held by Valence equity award holders and deferred liabilities for additional consideration. An immaterial amount of the aforementioned share consideration had not yet been issued as of June 30, 2023. Additionally, the final number of shares to be issued had not yet been finalized and so are subject to change.

The following table summarizes total consideration:

Fair value of Recursion Class A common stock $11,122

Fair value of equity awards issued to Valance equity award holders1,933

The following table summarizes the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed as of the acquisition date:

(in thousands)
Cash$4,235 
Other receivables485 
Intangible asset - technology15,000 
Accounts payable and accrued liabilities(494)
Deferred income taxes(2,892)
Other long-term liabilities(378)
Total identifiable net assets$15,956 
Goodwill27,749 
Total assets acquired and liabilities assumed$43,705 

The intangible asset related to Valence’s ML and AI digital chemistry platform. The estimated fair value of the intangible asset was determined using a cost approach. This valuation technique provides the fair value of an asset based on estimates of the total costs to develop the technology. Significant inputs used to determine the total cost includes the length of time required and service hours performed by Company employees. The technology intangible asset is being amortized on a straight-line basis over its four-year useful life.

Goodwill was calculated as the excess of the consideration transferred over the net assets recognized. The goodwill recognized represents the assembled workforce and expected synergies, including the ability to: (i) leverage Valence’s digital chemistry platform across Recursion’s business; (ii) leverage Valence’s ML and AI capabilities; (iii) integrate Recursion’s data and operating system into Valence’s platform; and (iv) accelerate Recursion’s pipeline. Goodwill was also impacted by the establishment of a deferred tax liability for the acquired identifiable intangible assets which have no tax basis. The goodwill is not deductible for tax purposes.

Recursion’s condensed consolidated statement of operations included no net revenue and an immaterial operating loss associated with Valence’s operations. As the acquisition occurred in May 2023, the Company is still finalizing the allocation of the purchase price to the individual assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The allocation of the purchase price included in the current period balance sheet is based on the best estimate of management and is preliminary and subject to change. The primary areas subject to change relate to the valuation of the intangible asset, other receivables and deferred taxes. To assist management in the allocation, the Company engaged external specialists. The Company will finalize the amounts recognized as the information necessary to complete the analysis is obtained. The Company expects to finalize these amounts as soon as possible but no later than one year from the acquisition date.

Cyclica Inc.

On May 25, 2023, Recursion acquired all of the outstanding equity interests in Cyclica Inc. (Cyclica), a privately-held Company that has built a digital chemistry software suite which enables mechanism of action deconvolution and generative chemistry suggestions based on desired targets. Cyclica’s platform is expected to enhance the optimization of Recursion’s compounds for efficacy while minimizing liabilities through generative machine learning approaches.

The acquisition of Cyclica was accounted for as a business combination using the acquisition method of accounting. The aggregate upfront consideration for the acquisition of Cyclica consisted of 5,706,089 shares of Recursion Class A common stock, cash payments, 1,000,873 shares issuable upon exercise of stock options held by Cyclica equity award holders and deferred liabilities for additional consideration. Approximately 753 thousand of the aforementioned shares of Class A common stock consideration had not yet been issued as of June 30, 2023.

The intangible assets are related to Cyclica’s digital chemistry platforms. The estimated fair value of the intangible assets were determined using a cost approach. This valuation technique provides the fair value of an asset based on estimates of the total costs to develop the technology. Significant inputs used to determine the total cost includes the length of time required and service hours performed by Company employees. The technology intangible assets are being amortized on a straight-line basis over their three-year useful lives.

Goodwill was calculated as the excess of the consideration transferred over the net assets recognized. The goodwill recognized represents the assembled workforce and expected synergies, including the ability to: (i) leverage Cyclica’s digital chemistry platform across Recursion’s business; (ii) leverage Cyclica’s ML and AI capabilities; (iii) integrate Recursion’s data and operating system into Cyclica’s platform; and (iv) accelerate Recursion’s pipeline. Goodwill was also impacted by the establishment of a deferred tax liability for the acquired identifiable intangible assets. The goodwill is not deductible for tax purposes.

Note 5.    Leases

The Company has entered into various long-term real estate leases primarily related to office, research and development and operating activities. The Company’s leases have remaining terms from under 1 year to 9 years and some of those leases include options that provide Recursion with the ability to extend the lease term for five years. The options are included in the lease term when it is reasonably certain that the option will be exercised.

For the six months ended June 30, 2023, Recursion entered into lease modifications resulting in an increase to the right-of-use asset and lease liability of $3.4 million. The modifications had no impact to the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

In May 2022, the Company entered into a lease agreement for laboratory and office space in Toronto, Ontario with approximately 28,110 square feet (the “Toronto Lease”). This lease was separated into multiple lease components based on the intended use of the portions of the space. For some of those components, the right of use began May 2022 when the control of the assets was obtained. The right of use for the remaining component began June 2023 when the control of the asset was obtained. The Toronto Lease terms for each component are ten years with a five-year renewal option. The Toronto Lease includes provisions for escalating rent payments and a tenant improvement allowance of up to $1.6 million. Total fixed payments are expected to be approximately $11.1 million with additional variable expenses, including building expenses.

See Note 7, “Commitments and Contingencies” for information on the Industry lease.

June 30, 2022, respectively. Amortization expense was included in research and development in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations.

The indefinite-lived intangible asset represents the Recursion domain name that the Company purchased. No indefinite-lived intangible asset impairment charges were recorded during the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022.

Note 7. Commitments and Contingencies

Contract Obligations

In the normal course of business, the Company enters into contracts with clinical research organizations, drug manufacturers and other vendors for preclinical and clinical research studies, research and development supplies and other services and products for operating purposes. These contracts generally provide for termination on notice and are cancellable contracts.

Indemnification

The Company has agreed to indemnify its officers and directors for certain events or occurrences, while the officer or director is or was serving at the Company’s request in such capacity. The Company purchases directors and officers liability insurance coverage that provides for reimbursement to the Company for covered obligations and this is intended to limit the Company’s exposure and enable it to recover a portion of any amounts it pays under its indemnification obligations. The Company had no liabilities recorded for these agreements as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, as no amounts were probable.

Employee Agreements

The Company has signed employment agreements with certain key employees pursuant to which, if their employment is terminated following a change of control of the Company, the employees are entitled to receive certain benefits, including accelerated vesting of equity incentives.

Legal Matters

In February 2021, the Company entered into a lease agreement for laboratory and office space (the Industry Lease) with Industry Office SLC, LLC (the landlord). In March 2023, the Company sent a letter to the landlord detailing numerous construction delays and irregularities, deficiencies and deviations from applicable structural drawings and/or non-conforming conditions with applicable building codes. On June 23, 2023, the landlord filed a lawsuit against the Company (Industry Office SLC, LLC v. Recursion Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Case No. 230904627) in the Third District Court for Salt Lake County, State of Utah, alleging anticipatory repudiation and breach of contract. The Plaintiff seeks monetary damages and attorney’s fees. In July 2023, the Company filed a motion to dismiss. The Company is unable to estimate the possible damages or range of damages associated with the Landlord’s complaint. As of June 30, 2023, the Company had no liability recorded for these events as an unfavorable outcome was not probable.

Note 8. Common Stock

Each share of Class A common stock entitles the holder to one vote per share and each share of Class B common stock entitles the holder to 10 votes per share on all matters submitted to a vote of the Company’s stockholders. Common stockholders are entitled to receive dividends, as may be declared by the Company’s Board of Directors. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, no dividends had been declared.

Valence Acquisition Exchangeable Shares

In May 2023, in connection with the acquisition of Valence, the Company entered into an agreement to issue up to 5,904,827 shares of Class A common stock (the “Exchange Shares”), that may be issued upon exchange, retraction or redemption of exchangeable shares of 14998685 Canada Inc., a corporation governed by the laws of Canada and an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Recursion. Each exchangeable share of a subsidiary of Recursion entitles the holder to exchange those shares on a one-for-one basis for Recursion’s Class A common stock. The shares are entitled to receive dividends economically equivalent to dividends declared by Recursion, are non-voting and are subject to customary adjustments for stock splits or other reorganizations. In addition, the Company may
14

Table of Contents
require all outstanding exchangeable shares to be exchanged into an equal number of Class A common stock upon the occurrence of certain events and at any time following the seventh anniversary of the closing of the Valence acquisition. The exchangeable shares are substantially the economic equivalent of the Class A shares. The Company’s calculation of weighted-average shares outstanding includes the exchangeable shares.

Private Placement

In October 2022, Recursion issued 15,336,734 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock (the Shares) at a purchase price of $9.80 per share in a private placement (the 2022 Private Placement) to qualified institutional buyers and institutional accredited investors (the Purchasers) for net proceeds of $143.7 million, after deducting fees and offering costs of $6.6 million.

Registration Rights Agreements

Acquisitions
In May 2023, in connection with the acquisition of Valence, the Company entered into a Registration Agreement providing for the registration for resale of the shares of Class A common stock and Exchange Shares issued or issuable in such transaction. A registration statement on Form S-3ASR (File No. 333-272281) was filed to register the resale shares by the Sellers. The agreement must remain effective for a period of not less than three years.

In May 2023, in connection with the acquisition of Cylica, the Company entered into a Registration Agreement providing for the registration for resale of the shares of Class A common stock issued in such transaction. A prospectus supplement to a registration statement (File No. 333-264845) was subsequently filed in June 2023 to register the resale shares by the Sellers. The agreement must be continuously effective until the earlier of the date that all shares have been sold thereunder or are able to be publicly sold by relying on Rule 144 of the Securities Act without registration.

Private Placement
In October 2022, in connection with the 2022 Private Placement, the Company entered into a Registration Rights Agreement providing for the registration for resale of the shares of Class A common stock issued in such transaction. A prospectus supplement to a registration statement (File No. 333-264845) was subsequently filed in October 2022 to register the resale of the shares of Class A common stock by the Purchasers. The agreement must remain effective until registrable securities covered by the agreement have been publicly sold by the holders or all shares cease to be registrable securities. In the event the holders cannot sell their shares due to certain circumstances causing the agreement to be ineffective, the Company must pay each holder of shares outstanding on the date and each month thereafter 1.0% of the aggregate purchase price paid by the holder without limit until the agreement is cured. As of June 30, 2023, there was no accrued liability related to this agreement, as it was not probable that a payment would be required.

Class A and B Common Shares Authorization

In April 2021, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized two classes of common stock, Class A and Class B. The rights of the holders of Class A and B common stock are identical, except with respect to voting and conversion. Each share of Class A common stock is entitled to one vote per share. Each share of Class B common stock is entitled to 10 votes per share and is convertible at any time into one share of Class A common stock.

All Class B common stock is held by Christopher Gibson, Ph.D., the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), or his affiliates. As of June 30, 2023, Dr. Gibson and his affiliates held outstanding shares of Class B common stock representing approximately 28% of the voting power of the Company’s outstanding shares. This voting power may increase over time as Dr. Gibson vests in and exercises equity awards outstanding. If all the exchangeable equity awards held by Dr. Gibson had been fully vested, exercised and exchanged for shares of Class B common stock as of June 30, 2023, Dr. Gibson and his affiliates would hold approximately 31% of the voting power of the Company’s outstanding shares. As a result, Dr. Gibson will be able to significantly influence any action requiring the approval of Recursion stockholders, including the election of the Board of Directors; the adoption of amendments to the Company’s certificate of incorporation and bylaws; and the approval of any merger, consolidation, sale of all or substantially all of the Company’s assets, or other major corporate transaction.

Note 9. Collaborative Development Contracts

Roche and Genentech

Description
In December 2021, Recursion entered into a collaboration and license agreement with Roche and Genentech (collectively referred to as Roche). Recursion is constructing, using the Company’s imaging technology and proprietary machine-learning algorithms, unique maps of the inferred relationships amongst perturbation phenotypes in a given cellular context with the goal to discover and develop therapeutic small molecule programs in a gastrointestinal cancer indication and in key areas of neuroscience. Roche and Recursion will collaborate to select certain novel inferences with respect to small molecules or targets generated from the Phenomaps for further validation and optimization as collaboration programs. Roche and Recursion may also combine sequencing datasets from Roche with Recursion’s Phenomaps and collaborate to generate new algorithms to produce multi-modal maps from which additional collaboration programs may be initiated. For every collaboration program that successfully identifies potential therapeutic small molecules or validates a target, Roche will have an option to obtain an exclusive license to develop and commercialize such potential therapeutic small molecules or to exploit such target in the applicable exclusive field.

Pricing
In January 2022, Recursion received a $150.0 million non-refundable upfront payment from the Company’s collaboration with Roche. Recursion is eligible for additional milestone payments based on performance progress of the collaboration. Each of the Phenomaps requested by Roche and created by Recursion may be subject to either an initiation fee, acceptance fee or both. Such fees could exceed $250.0 million for 16 accepted Phenomaps. In addition, for a period of time after Roche’s acceptance of certain Phenomaps, Roche will have the option to obtain, subject to payment of an exercise fee, rights to use outside the collaboration the raw images generated in the course of creating those Phenomaps. If Roche exercises its external use option for all 12 eligible Phenomaps, Roche’s associated exercise fee payments to Recursion could exceed $250.0 million. Under the collaboration, Roche may initiate up to 40 programs, each of which, if successfully developed and commercialized, could yield more than $300.0 million in development, commercialization and net revenue milestones for Recursion, as well as tiered royalties on net revenue.

Accounting
This agreement represents a transaction with a customer and therefore is accounted for in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 606. Recursion has determined that it has three performance obligations, one related to gastrointestinal cancer and two in neuroscience. These performance obligations are for performing research and development services for Roche to identify targets and medicines. The performance obligations also include potential licenses related to the intellectual property. The Company concluded that licenses within the contract are not distinct from the research and development services as they are interrelated due to the fact that the research and development services significantly impact the potential licenses. Any additional services are considered customer options and will be considered as separate contracts for accounting purposes.

The Company has determined the transaction price to be $150.0 million, comprised of the upfront payment. Recursion will fully constrain the amounts of variable consideration to be received from potential milestones considering the stage of development and the risks associated with the remaining development required to achieve each milestone. Recursion will re-evaluate the transaction price each reporting period.

The transaction price was allocated to the performance obligations based on the estimated relative stand-alone selling price of each performance obligation as determined using an expected cost plus margin approach. The Company recognizes revenue over time based on costs incurred relative to total expected costs to perform the research and development services. Recursion determined that this method provides a faithful depiction of the transfer of control to the customer. This method of recognizing revenue requires the Company to make estimates of total costs to provide the services required under the performance obligations. Significant inputs used to determine the total costs included the length of time required, service hours performed by Company employees and materials

Table of Contents
costs. A significant change in these estimates could have a material effect on the timing and amount of revenue recognized in future periods. Recursion has estimated the completion of the performance obligations by 2025.

Bayer AG

Description
In August 2020, the Company entered into a Research Collaboration and Option Agreement (the Bayer Agreement) with Bayer AG (Bayer) for a five-year term pursuant to which the Company and Bayer may initiate approximately 10 research projects related to fibrosis across multiple organ systems, including the lung, liver and heart. Under the agreement, the Company contributed compounds from its proprietary library and Bayer contributed compounds from its proprietary library and will contribute scientific expertise throughout the collaboration. Under each research project, the Company will work with Bayer to identify potential candidates for development. Under the agreement, Bayer has the first option for licenses to potential candidates.

Pricing
In October 2020, the Company received a $30.0 million non-refundable upfront payment. Each such license could potentially result in option exercise fees and development and commercial milestone payments payable to the Company, with an aggregate value of up to approximately $100.0 million (for an option on a lead series) or up to approximately $120.0 million (for an option on a development candidate), as well as tiered royalties for each such license, ranging from low- to mid-single digit percentages of sales, depending on commercial success.

Accounting
The Company determined that it has one performance obligation under the agreement, which is to perform research and development services for Bayer. Recursion determined the transaction price to be $30.0 million, comprised of the upfront payment. The Company allocated the amount to the single performance obligation. The Company is recognizing revenue over time by measuring progress towards completion of the performance obligation. This method of recognizing revenue requires the Company to make estimates of the total time to provide the services required under the performance obligation. A significant change in these estimates could have a material effect on the timing and amount of revenue recognized in future periods. Recursion has estimated the completion of the performance obligation by 2023.

Additional Revenue Disclosures
Recursion recognized $11.0 million and $23.1 million of operating revenue during the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, respectively, primarily all of which was included in the unearned revenue balance as of December 31, 2022. Of the revenue recognized during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, $2.5 million and $5.0 million, respectively, were included in the unearned revenue balance as of December 31, 2021. Revenue recognized was from upfront payments received at the inception of the related contracts, which decreased the initial unearned revenue recognized. As of June 30, 2023, the Company had $7.1 million of costs incurred to fulfill a contract on its Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet within “Other current assets.”

Unearned revenue was classified as short-term and long-term on the Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets based on the Company’s estimate of revenue that will be recognized during the next twelve months.

Note 10. Stock-Based Compensation

In April 2021, the Board of Directors and the stockholders of the Company adopted the 2021 Equity Incentive Plan (the 2021 Plan). Under the 2021 Plan, 16,186,000 shares of Class A common stock were reserved. Additionally, shares were reserved for all outstanding awards under the previous 2016 Plan. The Company may grant stock options, restricted stock units (RSUs), stock appreciation rights, restricted stock awards and other forms of stock-based compensation.

As of June 30, 2023, 7,218,696 shares of Class A common stock were available for grant.

Note 11. Income Taxes

The Company did not record any U.S. income tax expense during the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022. The Company has historically incurred operating losses and maintains a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets. Foreign taxes were insignificant during the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022.

Net operating losses (NOLs) and tax credit carry-forwards are subject to review and possible adjustment by the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) and may become subject to annual limitation due to ownership changes that have occurred previously or that could occur in the future under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended and similar state provisions. These ownership changes may limit the amount of carryforwards that can be utilized annually to offset future taxable income. In general, an ownership change, as defined by Section 382, results from transactions increasing the ownership of certain shareholders or public groups in the stock of a corporation by more than 50% over a three-year period. The Company has not conducted a study to assess whether a change of ownership has occurred or whether there have been multiple ownership changes since inception due to the significant complexity and cost associated with such a study. If the Company has experienced a change of ownership, as defined by Section 382, at any time since inception, utilization of the net operating loss carryforwards or research and development tax credit carryforwards would be subject to an annual limitation under Section 382, which is determined by first multiplying the value of the Company’s stock at the time of the ownership change by the applicable long-term tax-exempt rate and then could be subject to additional adjustments, as required. Any limitation may result in expiration of a portion of the net operating loss carryforwards or research and development tax credit carryforwards before utilization. Further, until a study is completed and any limitation is known, no amounts are being presented as an uncertain tax position.

The Company files income tax returns in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Utah, California and Massachusetts. The Company is not currently under examination in any of these jurisdictions. The Company is subject to income tax examinations on all federal returns since the 2016 tax return.

Note 12. Net Loss Per Share

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, Recursion calculated net loss per share of Class A, Class B and Exchangeable common stock using the two-class method. Basic net loss per share is computed using the weighted-average number of shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share is computed using the weighted-average number of shares and the effect of potentially dilutive securities outstanding during the period. Potentially dilutive securities consist of stock options and other contingently issuable shares. For periods presented in which the Company reports a net loss, all potentially dilutive shares are anti-dilutive and as such are excluded from the calculation. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company reported a net loss and therefore basic and diluted loss per share were the same.

The rights, including the liquidation and dividend rights, of the holders of the Company’s Class A, Class B and Exchangeable common stock are substantially identical, except with respect to voting. As a result, the undistributed
19

Table of Contents
earnings for each period are allocated based on the contractual participation rights of the Class A, Class B and Exchangeable common shares as if the earnings for the period had been distributed. As the liquidation and dividend rights are identical, the undistributed earnings are allocated on a proportionate basis and the resulting amount per share for Class A, Class B and Exchangeable common stock was the same during the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022.

The following tables set forth the computation of basic and diluted net loss per share of Class A, Class B and Exchangeable common stock:

Note 13. Fair Value Measurements

The fair value hierarchy consists of the following three levels:

Level 1 — Valuations based on unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets that the company has the ability to access;
Level 2 — Valuations based on quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active and model-based valuations in which all significant inputs are observable in the market; and
Level 3 — Valuations using significant inputs that are unobservable in the market and include the use of judgment by the company's management about the assumptions market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

The Company is required to maintain a cash balance in a collateralized account to secure the Company’s credit cards. Additionally, the Company holds restricted cash related to an outstanding letter of credit issued by J.P.

Overview

Recursion is a clinical stage TechBio company leading this burgeoning space by decoding biology and chemistry to industrialize drug discovery. Central to our mission is the Recursion Operating System (OS), a platform built across diverse technologies that enables us to map and navigate trillions of biological and chemical relationships within the Recursion Data Universe, one of the world’s largest proprietary biological and chemical datasets. We frame this integration of the physical and digital components as iterative loops of atoms and bits. Scaled ‘wet-lab’ biology and chemistry data built in-house (atoms) are organized into virtuous cycles with ‘dry-lab’ computational tools (bits) to rapidly translate in silico hypotheses into validated insights and novel chemistry. Our focus on mapping and navigating the complexities of biology and chemistry beyond the published literature and in a target-agnostic way differentiates us from other companies in our space and leads us to confront a fundamental cause of failure for the majority of clinical-stage programs - the wrong target is chosen due to an incomplete and reductionist view of biology. Our balanced team of life scientists and computational and technical experts creates an environment where empirical data, statistical rigor and creative thinking are brought to bear on our decisions.

We leverage our Recursion OS to enable three key value drivers:
1.An expansive pipeline of internally-developed clinical and preclinical programs focused on genetically-driven rare diseases and oncology with significant unmet need and market opportunities in some cases potentially in excess of $1 billion in annual sales
2.Transformational partnerships with leading biopharma companies to map and navigate intractable areas of biology, identify novel targets and develop potential new medicines that are further developed in resource-heavy clinical trials overseen by our partners
3.Development of one of the largest fit-for-purpose proprietary biological and chemical datasets in the world at a time when advances in AI paired with the right training data are creating disruptive value.

Summary of Business Highlights

Pipeline

Cerebral Cavernous Malformation (CCM) (REC-994): Our Phase 2 SYCAMORE clinical trial is a double-blind, placebo-controlled safety, tolerability and exploratory efficacy study of this drug candidate in participants with CCM. This study was fully enrolled as of June 2023 with 62 participants and all participants
24

Table of Contents
who have thus far finished their first year of treatment have enrolled in the long-term extension study. We expect to share Phase 2 proof-of-concept data in H2 2024.
Neurofibromatosis Type 2 (NF2) (REC-2282): Our Phase 2/3 POPLAR clinical trial is a two part study of REC-2282 in participants with progressive NF2-mutated meningiomas. Part A of the study is ongoing and is exploring two doses of REC-2282 in approximately 23 adults and 9 adolescents. We expect to share Phase 2 safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and preliminary efficacy in H2 2024.
Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) (REC-4881): We have enrolled multiple participants in our TUPELO clinical trial which evaluates REC-4881 in patients with FAP. We are now providing guidance on a data readout and expect to share Phase 2 safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and preliminary efficacy in H1 2025.
AXIN1 or APC Mutant Cancers (REC-4881): We will evaluate REC-4881 in a Phase 2 biomarker enriched study in patients with unresectable, locally advanced or metastatic cancer with AXIN1 or APC mutations. The IND was accepted by the FDA and we expect to initiate this Phase 2 study in Q4 2023.
Clostridioides difficile Infection (REC-3964): Our Phase 1 clinical trial is a first-in-human protocol evaluating single and multiple doses of REC-3964 in healthy volunteers and will assess the safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetic profile of REC-3964. Single ascending dose and multiple ascending dose studies are now complete. REC-3964 has been well tolerated and no safety issues have been identified to date. We expect to share Phase 1 safety and pharmacokinetics data in Q3 2023.
RBM39 HR-Proficient Ovarian Cancer: RBM39 (previously identified as Target Gamma) is a novel CDK12-adjacent target identified by the Recursion OS. We believe we can modulate this target to produce a therapeutic effect in HR-proficient ovarian cancer and potentially in other tumor types. This program is in the preclinical stage and IND-enabling studies are progressing.

Partnerships

NVIDIA: In July 2023, we announced a $50 million investment and collaboration with NVIDIA. We will continue to build our own foundation models for biology and chemistry and NVIDIA will assist in optimizing these models, provide priority access to computational resources on NVIDIA’s cloud service DGX Cloud, and potentially host commercially-licensable machine learning and foundation models developed by Recursion on BioNeMo, NVIDIA’s marketplace for generative AI in drug discovery. In this partnership, we will maintain control of our proprietary data and models as well as how and where we could host our technology tools as we expand our business strategy of data as a value driver. Since the announcement in July, we have already deployed our digital chemistry technology together with NVIDIA’s computational resources to predict the ligand-protein interactions for approximately 36 billion compounds in the Enamine REAL Space, reported to be the world’s largest searchable chemical library, where we evaluated 2.8 quadrillion target-compound pairs.
Roche-Genentech and Bayer: We continue to advance our collaborations to discover potential new therapeutics with our strategic partners Roche-Genentech and Bayer. In the near-term, there is the potential for option exercises associated with partnership programs or option exercises associated with map building initiatives or data sharing.

Platform

Digital Chemistry and Generative AI Capabilities: In May 2023, we acquired Cyclica and Valence Discovery to bolster our digital chemistry and generative AI capabilities and drive value across our pipeline, partnerships and platform. Shortly after closing these acquisitions, we used Cyclica’s digital chemistry tools to predict the protein-ligand interactions for the over 1 million compounds in our internal, non-partnered chemical library. Now, less than one quarter after the closing of these acquisitions, we worked with our partners at NVIDIA to predict the protein-ligand interactions of approximately 36 billion compounds in the Enamine REAL Space, reported to be the world’s largest searchable chemical library. As part of the Cyclica acquisition, Recursion acquired four platform patent families, which includes four pending U.S. patent applications directed to our platform with expiration, upon issuance, expected to be no earlier than 2035.
25

Table of Contents
This brings the total number of patent families related to the Recursion Platform to at least 25, and includes patents that, upon issuance, are expected to expire as late as 2042.
Accelerating Pipeline and Partnership Value: For our internal pipeline, we have used our digital chemistry tools to deconvolve proteome-wide biological targets to confirm that certain compounds operate through a novel mechanism of action which was previously predicted by our functional phenomics maps. Such proteomic mapping capabilities provide an additional data layer to efficiently identify the most promising novel chemical series.
Foundation Model Construction: We continue to use our supercomputer, BioHive-1, to train a proprietary phenomics foundation model. As we have trained on larger quantities of our proprietary data, emergent properties have arisen out of the models and we have seen significant improvements over previous deep learning production models. We are also in the early stages of exploring more powerful and broadly useful foundation models based on our large-scale proprietary multi-omics data, which includes phenomics across 50 human cell types and approximately 1.7 million compounds, multi-timepoint live-cell microscopy, transcriptomics, proteomics, inVivomics, multi-target compound interactions, physicochemical properties, as well as predicted protein-ligand relationships. We may explore commercial licensing of some of our models in collaboration with NVIDIA and their BioNeMo platform in the coming year, though our state-of-the-art models will only be available to our team and close partners.
Large Language Models: One year ago, more than 40 employees were dedicated to exploring our maps of biology and chemistry to initiate programs at Recursion. Today, those same employees have been redeployed and our newest internal programs are being initiated autonomously. This efficiency and scale is through the deployment of large language models to map scientific literature in conjunction with our internally derived proprietary maps to identify opportunities for scientific arbitrage in areas of unmet need. These opportunities are then automatically prioritized for confirmation and validation in our highly-automated wetlabs. This is a significant step towards our vision of autonomous drug discovery and biological exploration.
Valence Labs - Powered by Recursion: In July 2023 at the International Conference for Machine Learning, we launched Valence Labs, Recursion’s cutting-edge machine learning research center for biology and chemistry in Montréal that aims to promote open-science and academic research. Recursion’s commitment to open-science helps us recruit and retain the best talent in the field of generative AI, allows us to design and set the standards by which ML and AI are deployed in drug discovery, and may drive additional biopharma companies to consider partnering with Recursion to get access to our proprietary state-of-the-art tools, technology, datasets and programs.

Additional Corporate Updates

Chief Medical Officer: In May 2023, David Mauro, M.D., Ph.D. joined Recursion as its Chief Medical Officer. Dr. Mauro has over 20 years experience in oncology drug development and has guided more than 25 Investigational New Drug candidates through the translational, preliminary and later stages of development at various companies.
Chief Legal Officer: In July 2023, Recursion named Nathan Hatfield, J.D., M.B.A. as Chief Legal Officer. Mr. Hatfield has worked at Recursion for over 6 years, previously serving as SVP and Head of Legal. Prior to Recursion, Mr. Hatfield was a securities attorney at the law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati.
Toronto Office: In June 2023, we celebrated the opening of our Canadian Headquarters in Toronto with government officials as well as members of the technology and biotechnology communities.
ESG Reporting: In June 2023, Recursion received a favorable ESG Risk Rating from Morningstar Sustainalytics which ranked Recursion as the #1 biotechnology company out of approximately 400 companies and the #14 pharmaceuticals company out of approximately 900 companies.

Financing and Operations

We were incorporated in November 2013. On April 20, 2021, we closed our Initial Public Offering (IPO) and issued 27,878,787 shares of Class A common stock at a price of $18.00 per share, raising net proceeds of $462.4 million. Prior to our IPO, we had raised approximately $448.9 million in equity financing from investors in addition to $30.0 million in an upfront payment from our collaboration with Bayer AG (Bayer). In January 2022, we received an upfront payment of $150.0 million from our collaboration with Roche. See Note 9, “Collaborative Development Contracts” to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information on the collaborations. In October 2022, we issued 15,336,734 shares of our Class A common stock at a purchase price of $9.80 per share in the 2022 Private Placement to qualified institutional buyers and institutional accredited investors (the Purchasers) for net
26

Table of Contents
proceeds of $143.7 million, after deducting fees and offering costs of $6.6 million. On July 11, 2023, we issued an aggregate of 7,706,363 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock at a purchase price of $6.49 per share for gross proceeds of approximately $50.0 million, before deducting expenses in the 2023 Private Placement with NVIDIA Corporation. See Note 14, “Subsequent Events” to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for additional information on the 2023 Private Placement.

We use the capital we have raised to fund operations and investing activities across platform research operations, drug discovery, clinical development, digital and other infrastructure, creation of our portfolio of intellectual property and administrative support. We do not have any products approved for commercial sale and have not generated any revenues from product sales. We had cash and cash equivalents of $405.9 million as of June 30, 2023. Based on our current operating plan, we believe that our cash and cash equivalents will be sufficient to fund our operations for at least the next twelve months.

Since inception, we have incurred significant operating losses. Our net losses were $76.7 million and $142.1 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, respectively. Our net losses were $65.6 million and $121.5 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively. As of June 30, 2023, our accumulated deficit was $781.6 million.

We anticipate that we will need to raise additional financing in the future to fund our operations, including the potential commercialization of any approved product candidates. Until such time, if ever, as we can generate significant product revenue, we expect to finance our operations with our existing cash and cash equivalents, any future equity or debt financings and upfront, milestone and royalty payments, if any, received under current or future license or collaboration agreements. We may not be able to raise additional capital on terms acceptable to us or at all. If we are unable to raise additional capital when desired, our business, results of operations and financial condition may be adversely affected.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Sources of Liquidity

We have not yet commercialized any products and do not expect to generate revenue from the sales of any product candidates for at least several years. Cash and cash equivalents totaled $405.9 million and $549.9 million as of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, respectively.

We have incurred operating losses and experienced negative operating cash flows and we anticipate that the Company will continue to incur losses for at least the foreseeable future. Our net loss was $76.7 million and $142.1 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2023, respectively. Our net loss was $65.6 million and $121.5 million during the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, respectively. As of June 30, 2023 and December 31, 2022, we had an accumulated deficit of $781.6 million and $639.6 million, respectively.

We have financed our operations through the private placements of preferred stock and Class A common stock issuances.

Critical Accounting Estimates and Policies

A summary of the Company’s significant accounting estimates and policies is included in Note 2, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies” in our 2022 Annual Report. Except as noted below, there were no significant changes in the Company’s application of its critical accounting policies during the six months ended June 30, 2023.

Business Combinations

Results of operations of acquired companies are included in the Recursion results of operations as of the respective acquisition dates. The purchase price of each acquisition is allocated to the net assets acquired based on estimates of their fair values at the date of acquisition. Any purchase price in excess of these net assets is recorded as goodwill. The allocation of purchase price in certain cases may be subject to revision based on the final determination of fair values during the measurement period, which may be up to one year from the acquisition date. Legal costs, due diligence costs, business valuation costs and all other business acquisition costs are expensed when incurred.

Amounts allocated to assets and liabilities are based upon fair value estimates. These fair value estimates could require us to make significant estimates and assumptions, especially with respect to intangible assets. We make estimates of fair value based upon assumptions believed to be reasonable and that of a market participant. These estimates are based on available historical information as well as future expectations and the estimates are inherently uncertain. The use of alternative estimates and assumptions could increase or decrease the estimated fair values, the amounts allocated to identifiable intangible assets acquired, future amortization expense and the value of goodwill.

Recently Issued and Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

See Note 2, “Basis of Presentation” in Item 1 of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for information regarding recently issued and adopted accounting pronouncements.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

Interest Rate Risk

We are exposed to market risk related to changes in interest rates of our cash and cash equivalents. As of June 30, 2023, our cash and cash equivalents primarily consisted of money market funds. Our primary exposure to market risk is interest income sensitivity, which is affected by changes in U.S. interest rates. A hypothetical 100 basis point decrease in interest rates as of as of June 30, 2023, would have an insignificant effect on net loss in the ensuring year.

Foreign Currency Exchange Risk

Our employees and our operations are primarily located in the United States and Canada and our expenses are generally denominated in U.S. and Canadian dollars. We also have entered into a limited number of contracts with vendors for research and development services that have underlying payment obligations denominated in foreign currencies. We are subject to foreign currency transaction gains or losses on our contracts denominated in foreign currencies. To date, foreign currency transaction gains and losses have not been material to our financial statements, and we do not have a formal hedging program with respect to foreign currency. A 10% increase or decrease in current exchange rates would not have had a material effect on our financial results during the three and six months ended June 30, 2023 and 2022.

Inflation Risk and Market Volatility

In recent months, inflation has continued to increase significantly in the U.S. and overseas resulting in rising costs for transportation, wages, construction and other goods and services. Inflation and supply chain disruptions have increased our overall operating expenses. In addition, the capital and credit markets have been experiencing volatility and disruption, which has exerted downward pressure on stock prices and credit capacity. There is no assurance that such markets will be a source of future financing for Recursion, nor that other funding sources would be available or sufficient, particularly if current levels of market disruption and volatility continue or worsen. Although we do not believe that the above conditions have materially changed our overall financial position, if our costs continue to increase, we may not be able to fully offset those increased costs through reduced spending or additional financing efforts and failure to do so could harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.
