Item 2.02. Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

 

On November 13, 2018, Atossa Genetics Inc. (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing third quarter 2018 financial results and a Company update. A copy of the press release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this current report and is incorporated herein by reference.

 

Item 4.02. Non-Reliance on Previously Issued Financial Statements or a Related Audit Report or Completed Interim Review.

 

 

(a)

On November 12, 2018, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors concluded that the financial statements included in the Company’s quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 (the “Original Form 10-Q”) can no longer be relied upon because of inadvertent errors in those financial statements. On November 13, 2018, the Company filed an amended Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 which corrects the errors in the Original Form 10-Q. The Audit Committee and the Chief Financial Officer of the Company discussed the matters in this Item 4.02(a) with the Company’s independent accounting firm. Below is a brief description of the facts underlying the foregoing conclusion.

 

Accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America require that we allocate the proceeds from the May 2018 financing to the warrants and preferred stock issued in the financing and that we estimate and record any discount on the securities as a deemed dividend. In the financial statements included in the Original Form 10-Q, we did not properly allocate the proceeds to the warrants, and we did not properly record the deemed dividend related to the warrant discount as additional paid in capital to common stock. The Company incorrectly stated the deemed dividend for the three and six months ended June 30, 2018 as $4,782,100, rather than $11,479,308. The corrections result from application of technical accounting rules and do not impact cash or operations. As a result, the following items in the original filing have been amended:

 

Part I, Item 1. Financial Statements, Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations (unaudited);

Part I, Item 1. Financial Statements, Condensed Consolidated Statement of Stockholders’ Equity (unaudited);

Part I, Item 1. Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statement (Unaudited), Note 7 - Stockholders' Equity - Accounting Treatment; and Note 8 - Net Loss Per Share; and

Part I, Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

In accordance with applicable generally accepted accounting principles, the Company has calculated and recognized adjustments accordingly. The following table shows the effect of the restatement on certain line items within the Company’s Condensed Consolidated Statement of Operations for the three months and six month ended June 30, 2018:
