NOTE 2 – Liquidity and Financial Condition
The Company reported a net loss of $11,798,000 for the year ended March 31, 2019. At March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018, the Company’s accumulated deficit amounted to $169,238,000 and $157,440,000, respectively. The Company had working capital of $8,905,000 and $12,993,000 as of March 31, 2019 and March 31, 2018, respectively.
On November 16, 2018, the Company entered into a placement agency agreement with Dawson James Securities, Inc. with respect to the issuance and sale of units with each unit consisting of one share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share or, in lieu of common stock, if purchasing common stock would result in the purchaser, together with its affiliates and certain related parties, beneficially owning more than 4.99% of the outstanding common stock, shares of Series C convertible preferred stock (“Series C”) convertible into shares of common stock, together with warrants to purchase one share of common stock at an exercise price equal to $9.00 per whole share, in a public offering. The public offering price for each unit was $9.00. On November 21, 2018, at closing of the offering, the Company sold 507,156 shares of common stock, 9.65 shares of Series C (convertible into 107,222 shares of common stock) and warrants to purchase up to 307,188 shares of common stock for gross proceeds of $5,530,000 and net proceeds of $4,743,000 after deducting placement agent commissions and other offering expenses.
On December 8, 2017, the Company entered into an At Market Issuance Sales Agreement with B. Riley FBR, Inc. under which the Company may issue and sell shares of common stock having an aggregate offering price of up to $5,000,000 from time to time through B. Riley acting as its sales agent. The Company will pay B. Riley a commission rate equal to 3.0% of the gross proceeds from the sale of any shares of common stock sold through B. Riley as agent. For the period of April 1, 2018 through October 3, 2018, the Company sold 29,710 shares of common stock for gross proceeds of $999,000 and net proceeds of $957,000 after deducting commissions and other offering expenses.
In addition, on October 4, 2018, the Company sold 12,556 shares of common stock, at a price of $21.51 per share, through its At Market Issuance Sales Agreement with B. Riley FBR, Inc. for gross proceeds of $270,000 and net proceeds of $262,000 after deducting commissions and other offering expenses. This sale exceeded the aggregate market value of the Company’s securities sold during the period of twelve calendar months prior to the sale of one-third of the aggregate market value of its common stock held by non-affiliates, and thus, the 12,556 shares of common stock were unregistered. The Company could be liable in the event claims or suits for rescission are brought and successfully concluded for failure to register these securities or for acts or omissions constituting offenses under the Securities Act, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, or applicable state securities laws. The Company could be liable for damages and penalties assessed by the SEC and state securities regulators.
The Company expects to continue incurring losses for the foreseeable future and may need to raise additional capital to pursue its product development initiatives, to penetrate markets for the sale of its products and continue as a going concern. The Company cannot provide any assurances that it will be able to raise additional capital.
Management believes that the Company has access to additional capital resources through possible public or private equity offerings, debt financings, corporate collaborations or other means; however, the Company cannot provide any assurance that other new financings will be available on commercially acceptable terms, if needed. If the economic climate in the U.S. deteriorates, the Company’s ability to raise additional capital could be negatively impacted. If the Company is unable to secure additional capital, it may be required take additional measures to reduce costs in order to conserve its cash in amounts sufficient to sustain operations and meet its obligations. These measures could cause significant delays in the Company’s continued efforts to commercialize its products, which is critical to the realization of its business plan and the future operations of the Company. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that may be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
The entire disclosure when substantial doubt is raised about the ability to continue as a going concern. Includes, but is not limited to, principal conditions or events that raised substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going concern, management's evaluation of the significance of those conditions or events in relation to the ability to meet its obligations, and management's plans that alleviated or are intended to mitigate the conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going concern.
