Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure.

On March 12, 2023, the Department of the Treasury, Federal Reserve and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) issued a joint press release announcing that “Secretary Yellen approved actions enabling the FDIC to complete its resolution of Silicon Valley Bank, Santa Clara, California, in a manner that fully protects all depositors. Depositors will have access to all of their money starting Monday, March 13.” The news came after SVB was closed by the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation on March 10, 2023, which appointed the FDIC as receiver.

Axogen, Inc. (the “Company) currently maintains approximately $8 million of cash with SVB, the Company’s sole depositor, which funds based on the announcement became available today, March 13, 2023. The majority of the Company’s other cash, cash equivalents and investments, consisting of a variety of short-term and high-credit treasury and corporate bonds and other liquid investments, is held in custodial accounts with U.S. Bank for which SVB Asset Management is the advisor. The Company has opened new brokerage accounts with JP Morgan Chase (“JP Morgan”) and has made arrangements to promptly move such cash, cash equivalents and investments held by U.S. Bank into the new accounts with JP Morgan. The Company is in the process of opening other accounts with JP Morgan for operations.

The information in this Item 7.01 is being furnished and shall not be deemed to be “filed” for purposes of Section 18 of the Exchange Act or otherwise subject to the liabilities of that section and shall not be deemed incorporated by reference into any filing under the Securities Act or Exchange Act, except as shall be expressly set forth by specific reference in such filing.
