CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This Annual Report on Form 10-K contains, in addition to historical information, certain forward-looking statements about our expectations, beliefs or intentions regarding, among other things, our product development and commercialization efforts, business, financial condition, results of operations, strategies or prospects. You can identify forward-looking statements by the fact that these statements do not relate strictly to historical or current matters. Rather, forward-looking statements relate to anticipated or expected events, activities, trends or results as of the date they are made. Because forward-looking statements relate to matters that have not yet occurred, these statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from any future results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Many factors could cause our actual activities or results to differ materially from the activities and results described in forward-looking statements. These factors include those set forth below as well as those contained in “Item 1A - Risk Factors” of this Annual Report on Form 10-K and our other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). We do not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements, except as required by applicable law. These forward-looking statements reflect our views only as of the date they are made with respect to future events and financial performance.

 

Risks and uncertainties, the occurrence of which could adversely affect our business, include the following:

 

 

We have a history of operating losses, we do not expect to become profitable in the near future and absent additional equity or debt financing, we may be unable to continue as a going concern.

     
  We will require additional funding, which may not be available to us on acceptable terms, or at all.
     
  We do not anticipate paying dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future.
     
  Because our common stock is a “penny stock,” it may be more difficult for investors to sell shares of our Common Stock, and the market price of our common stock may be adversely affected.
     
  Our stock price has been volatile and there may not be an active, liquid trading market for our common stock.
     
  Our quarterly results of operations will fluctuate, and these fluctuations could cause our stock price to decline.
     
  Shareholders may experience dilution of ownership interests because of the future issuance of additional shares of our common stock and our preferred stock.

PART I

 

Item 1. Business.

 

General

 

Non-Invasive Monitoring Systems, Inc. (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, the “Company,” “NIMS,” “we,” “us” or “our”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Florida on July 16, 1980. The Company’s offices are located at 4400 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, Florida, 33137 and its telephone number is (305) 575-4207.

 

Company Overview

 

Prior to 2002, our primary business was the development of computer-assisted, non-invasive diagnostic monitoring devices and related software designed to detect abnormal respiratory, cardiac and other medical conditions from sensors placed externally on the body’s surface.

 

In 2002, we began focusing on the research, development, manufacturing, marketing and sales of non-invasive, motorized, whole body periodic acceleration (“WBPA”) platforms. These therapeutic acceleration platforms are intended as aids to temporarily increase local circulation for temporary relief of minor aches and pains, produce local muscle relaxation and reduce morning stiffness.

 

Our operations of WBPA platforms began to slow down in recent years. We have not had any material sales for the years 2019 and 2018. We previously written off the value of our inventory and on May 3, 2019 we exchanged our inventory for forgiveness of $15,000 of accrued unpaid rent. In May 2019, we effectively discontinued operations. The Company is a shell company as defined in Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act.

 

Products

 

We currently have no inventory and do not have any of our products available for sale.

 

Equity Exchange Agreement

 

As previously reported, on December 3, 2018, Non-Invasive Monitoring Systems, Inc., a Florida corporation (the “Company”), entered into an Equity Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with IRA Financial Trust Company, a South Dakota trust corporation (“IRA Trust”), IRA Financial Group LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“IRAFG” and, together with IRA Trust, “IRA Financial”), and their respective equity holders (together, the “Equityholders”). Upon the terms and subject to the conditions contained in the Exchange Agreement, the Company had agreed to issue to the Equityholders shares of a newly-designated series of its convertible preferred stock in exchange for 100% of the issued and outstanding equity in IRA Financial (the “Exchange”). The Company, IRA Financial and the Equityholders subsequently amended the Exchange Agreement on three occasions to extend the outside date for consummation of the Exchange, with the last such extension expiring on July 3, 2019 (the “Outside Date”). A description of the material terms of the Exchange Agreement is contained in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 4, 2019, which description is incorporated by reference in this Item 1.02 of this Current Report on Form 8-K.

 

On August 4, 2019, IRAFG delivered to the Company notice of termination of the Exchange Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01(b)(i) thereof due to the failure of the Exchange to have closed on or prior to the Outside Date. No termination fees, penalties or other amounts are payable by the Company in respect of such termination.

 

Intellectual Property

 

We currently hold four United States patents with respect to both overall design and specific features of our present and proposed products, with corresponding foreign patents issued or pending in multiple jurisdictions. No assurance can be given as to the scope of protection afforded by any patent issued, whether patents will be issued with respect to any pending or future patent application, that patents issued will not be designed around, infringed or successfully challenged by others, that we will have sufficient resources to enforce any proprietary protection afforded by our patents or that our technology will not infringe on patents held by others. We believe that in the event our patent protection is materially impaired, an adverse effect could result as we believe these patents maintain value for a possible future business transaction. The following table lists our patents, along with their expiration dates (each of which is 20 years from the filing date):

With respect to our present and potential product line, we have six trademarks and trade names which are registered in the United States and in several foreign countries, including our principal trademark, “Exer-Rest”.

 

Manufacturing

 

We have no commercial manufacturing facilities, and we do not intend to build commercial manufacturing facilities of our own in the foreseeable future.

Sales & Marketing

 

We have no product sales and marketing personnel.

 

Employees

 

The Company currently does not have full time employees. Our administrative, accounting and legal functions are contracted on a part-time basis.

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

Our future operating results may vary substantially from anticipated results due to a number of factors, many of which are beyond our control. The following discussion highlights some of these factors and the possible impact of these factors on our future results of operations. If any of the following events actually occurs, our business, financial condition or results of operations could be materially harmed. In that case, the value of our common stock could decline substantially.

 

Risks Relating to Our Business.

 

We have a history of operating losses, we do not expect to become profitable in the near future and absent additional equity or debt financing, we may be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Our consolidated financial statements for the years ended July 31, 2019 and 2018 were prepared on a “going concern” basis; however substantial doubt exists about our ability to continue as a going concern as a result of recurring losses and an accumulated deficit. We are not profitable and have been incurring material losses. Our net losses for our fiscal years ended July 31, 2019 and 2018 were $1.6 and $0.4 million respectively. As of July 31, 2019, we had an accumulated deficit of $28.0 million. Absent additional equity or debt financing, we will be unable to continue as a going concern, and you may lose all of your investment in us.

 

We will require additional funding, which may not be available to us on acceptable terms, or at all.

 

We will need to raise additional capital in order for us to continue as a going concern. We will need to finance future cash needs primarily through public or private equity offerings, debt financings or strategic collaborations. We do not know whether additional funding will be available on acceptable terms, or at all. We cannot assure you that we could obtain such approval. To the extent that we raise additional funds by issuing equity securities, our shareholders may experience significant dilution, and debt financing, if available, may require that we agree to covenants that restrict our operations. To the extent that we raise additional funds through collaboration and licensing arrangements, it may be necessary to relinquish some rights to our products or grant licenses on terms that may not be favorable to us.

 

  5  
 

 

If we are unable to protect the confidentiality of our proprietary information and know-how, the value of our technology could be adversely affected.

 

In addition to patent protection, we also rely on other proprietary rights, including protection of trade secrets, know-how and confidential and proprietary information. Adequate remedies may not exist in the event of unauthorized use or disclosure of our confidential information. The disclosure of our trade secrets would impair our competitive position and may materially harm our business, financial condition and results of operations. To the extent that our consultants or contractors use technology or know-how owned by third parties in their work for us, disputes may arise between us and those third parties as to the rights in related inventions.

 

If we become involved in patent litigation or other proceedings related to a determination of rights, we could incur substantial costs and expenses, substantial liability for damages which could materially adversely affect our liquidity, business prospects and results of operations.

 

Third parties may sue us for infringing their patent rights. Likewise, we may need to resort to litigation to enforce a patent issued or licensed to us or to determine the scope and validity of proprietary rights of others. In addition, a third party may claim that we have improperly obtained or used its confidential or proprietary information. The cost to us of any litigation or other proceeding relating to intellectual property rights, even if resolved in our favor, could be substantial, and the litigation would divert our management’s efforts. Some of our competitors may be able to sustain the costs of complex patent litigation more effectively than we can because they have substantially greater resources. Uncertainties resulting from the initiation and continuation of any litigation could limit our ability to continue our operations.

 

Our business is subject to economic, political, regulatory and other risks associated with international operations.

 

Our business is subject to risks associated with conducting business internationally, in part due to some of our suppliers historically being located outside the United States. Accordingly, our future results could be harmed by a variety of factors, including:

 

  difficulties in compliance with non-U.S. laws and regulations;
     
  changes in non-U.S. regulations and customs;
     
  changes in non-U.S. currency exchange rates and currency controls;
     
  changes in a specific country’s or region’s political or economic environment;
     
  trade protection measures, import or export licensing requirements or other restrictive actions by U.S. or non-U.S. governments;
     
  negative consequences from changes in tax laws; and
     
  difficulties associated with staffing and managing foreign operations, including differing labor relations.

Risks Relating to Our Stock.

 

We do not anticipate paying dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future.

 

We have not declared and paid cash dividends on our common stock in the past, and we do not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. We intend to retain all of our earnings, if any, for the foreseeable future to finance the operation and expansion of our business. Additionally, our current credit facility prohibits us from paying dividends on our capital stock at any time during which we have outstanding borrowings thereunder. As a result, you may only receive a return on your investment in our common stock if the market price of our common stock increases and you sell your shares.

 

Because our common stock is a “penny stock,” it may be more difficult for investors to sell shares of our common stock, and the market price of our common stock may be adversely affected.

 

Our common stock, which trades on the OTCBB, is a “penny stock” since, among other things, the stock price is below $5.00 per share, it is not listed on a national securities exchange, and it has not met certain net tangible asset or average revenue requirements. Broker-dealers who sell penny stocks must provide purchasers of these stocks with a standardized risk-disclosure document prepared by the SEC. This document provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks involved in investing in the penny-stock market. A broker must also give a purchaser, orally or in writing, bid and offer quotations and information regarding broker and salesperson compensation, make a written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and obtain the purchaser’s written agreement to the purchase. Broker-dealers must also provide customers that hold penny stock in their accounts with such broker-dealer a monthly statement containing price and market information relating to the penny stock. If a penny stock is sold to an investor in violation of the penny stock rules, the investor may be able to cancel its purchase and get its money back.

 

If applicable, the penny stock rules may make it difficult for investors to sell their shares of our common stock. Because of the rules and restrictions applicable to a penny stock, there is less trading in penny stocks and the market price of our common stock may be adversely affected. Also, many brokers choose not to participate in penny stock transactions. Accordingly, investors may not always be able to resell their shares of our common stock publicly at times and prices acceptable to them.

 

Our stock price has been volatile and there may not be an active, liquid trading market for our common stock.

 

Our stock price has experienced significant price and volume fluctuations and may continue to experience volatility in the future. The price of our common stock has ranged between $0.04 and $0.14 for the 52-week period ended July 31, 2019. Many factors, including those described in this report and others, have a significant impact on the price of our common stock. Also, you may not be able to sell your shares at the best market price if trading in our stock in not active or if the volume is low. There is no guarantee that an active trading market for our common stock will be maintained on the OTCBB or elsewhere.

 

Our quarterly results of operations will fluctuate, and these fluctuations could cause our stock price to decline.

 

Our quarterly operating results are likely to fluctuate in the future. These fluctuations could cause our stock price to decline. The nature of our business involves variable factors, such as the timing of the research, development and regulatory submissions of our devices that could cause our operating results to fluctuate. As a result, in some future quarters our clinical, financial or operating results may not meet the expectations of securities analysts and investors which could result in a decline in the price of our stock.

 

  7  
 

 

Shareholders may experience dilution of ownership interests because of the future issuance of additional shares of our common stock and our preferred stock.

 

In the future, we may issue our authorized but previously unissued equity securities, resulting in the dilution of the ownership interests of our present shareholders. We are currently authorized to issue an aggregate of 401,000,000 shares of capital stock, consisting of 400,000,000 shares of common stock and 1,000,000 designated shares of preferred stock with preferences and rights to be determined by our Board of Directors. As of November 11, 2019, there were outstanding 154,810,655 shares of our common stock, 100 shares of our Series B preferred stock and there were no outstanding options to purchase shares of our common stock. We may also issue additional shares of our common stock or other securities that are convertible into or exercisable for common stock in connection with hiring or retaining employees, future acquisitions, future sales of our securities for capital raising purposes, or for other business purposes. The future issuance of any such additional shares of our common stock may create downward pressure on the trading price of the common stock. We may issue additional shares, warrants or other convertible securities in the future in conjunction with capital raising efforts, including at a price (or exercise price) below the price at which shares of our common stock are then currently traded on the OTCBB.

 

Item 2. Properties.

 

Our principal corporate office is located at 4400 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, Florida. We occupy this space from Frost Real Estate Holdings, LLC, which is a company controlled by Dr. Phillip Frost, one of our largest beneficial shareholders. We previously leased the approximately 1,800 square feet under a lease agreement, which commenced with a five-year term on January 1, 2008 and expired on December 31, 2012, and then we went on a month-to-month basis and then in February 2016 the office space rent was reduced to $0 per month.

 

We previously housed our inventory in approximately 4,000 square feet of warehouse space in Pembroke Park, Florida. The lease commenced September 15, 2014 and expired on September 31, 2015 and we have exercised our option to renew the lease and extended the expiration to September 15, 2017. Following the expiration, we have remained on a month-to-month term. On May 3, 2019 the Company exchanged inventory for forgiveness of $15,000 of accrued unpaid rent. The Company had previously written off the value of this inventory resulting in a gain on the forgiveness of approximately $15,000. The Company no longer leases this Pembroke Park warehouse following the exchange of inventory.

Market for common stock

 

Our common stock is quoted on the OTCBB under the symbol NIMU.OB. The table below sets forth, for the respective periods indicated, the high and low bid prices for the Company’s common stock as reported by the OTCBB. The following bid quotations represent inter-dealer prices, without adjustments for retail mark-ups, mark-downs or commissions and may not necessarily represent actual transactions.

 

Quarter Ended   High     Low  
October 31, 2017   $ 0.17     $ 0.14  
January 31, 2018   $ 0.16     $ 0.09  
April 30, 2018   $ 0.10     $ 0.06  
July 31, 2018   $ 0.15     $ 0.08  
October 31, 2018   $ 0.14     $ 0.04  
January 31, 2019   $ 0.14     $ 0.07  
April 30, 2019   $ 0.12     $ 0.07  
July 31, 2019   $ 0.11     $ 0.07

Since our inception, we have not paid any dividends on our common stock, and we do not anticipate that we will pay dividends in the foreseeable future. Additionally, our current credit facility prohibits us from paying dividends on our capital stock at any time during which we have outstanding borrowings thereunder. At July 31, 2019, we had 1,392 shareholders of record based on information provided by our transfer agent, Equity Stock Transfer. We believe that the actual number of beneficial shareholders is considerably higher.

 

Item 6. Selected Financial Data.

 

As a smaller reporting company as defined in Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act, we are not required to include information otherwise required by this item.

 

Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

This Annual Report on Form 10-K contains, in addition to historical information, certain forward-looking statements about our expectations, beliefs or intentions regarding, among other things, our product development and commercialization efforts, business, financial condition, results of operations, strategies or prospects. You can identify forward-looking statements by the fact that these statements do not relate strictly to historical or current matters. Rather, forward-looking statements relate to anticipated or expected events, activities, trends or results as of the date they are made. Because forward-looking statements relate to matters that have not yet occurred, these statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause our actual results to differ materially from any future results expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Many factors could cause our actual activities or results to differ materially from the activities and results anticipated in forward-looking statements. These factors include those set forth below as well as those contained in “Item 1A - Risk Factors” of this Annual Report on Form 10-K. We do not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements, except as required by applicable law. These forward-looking statements reflect our views only as of the date they are made with respect to future events and financial performance.

 

Overview

 

We previously were engaged in the development, manufacture and marketing of non-invasive, whole body periodic acceleration (“WBPA”) therapeutic platforms, which are motorized platforms that move a subject repetitively head to foot. The Company discontinued operations in May 2019, accordingly, certain assets, liabilities and expenses are classified as discontinued operations.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to inventory, income taxes, contingencies and litigation. Regarding inventories, the provision is an estimate based on multiple factors as further described in Notes 2 and 3. The ultimate realization of the inventory amount may be materially different. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. A more detailed discussion on the application of these and other accounting policies can be found in Note 2 in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements set forth in Item 8 of this Annual Report on Form 10-K. While we believe that the factors we evaluate provide us with a meaningful basis for establishing and applying sound accounting policies, we cannot guarantee that the results will always be accurate. Since the determination of these estimates requires the exercise of judgment, actual results could differ from such estimates.

Results of Operations

 

In January 2009 our Exer-Rest line of therapeutic platforms was registered by the FDA in the United States as Class I (Exempt) Medical Devices. We began our sales activity with marketing and promotional pricing beginning in February 2009. We have discontinued those operations in May 2019. The Company is assessing potential mergers, acquisitions and strategic collaborations.

 

Year Ended July 31, 2019 Compared to Year Ended July 31, 2018

 

General and administrative costs and expenses. General and administrative (“G&A”) costs and expenses from continuing operations was $446,000 for the year ended July 31, 2019, as compared to $178,000 for the year ended July 31, 2018. This $268,000 net increase was primarily from professional fees and insurance expense. There was no stock-based compensation expense for the years ended July 31, 2019 and 2018.

 

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”). SG&A costs and expenses from discontinued operations was $37,000 for the year ended July 31, 2019, as compared to $47,000 for the year ended July 31, 2018. This $10,000 net decrease was primarily from rent expense for inventory warehouse.

 

Total operating costs and expenses. Total operating costs and expenses from continuing operations was $446,000 for the year ended July 31, 2019, as compared to $178,000 for the year ended July 31, 2018. This $268,000 increase is primarily attributable to G&A noted above.

 

Interest and other expense. Interest was $93,000 for the year ended July 31, 2019, as compared to $220,000 for the year ended July 31, 2018. This $127,000 decrease was primarily attributable to extinguishment of debt and related accrued interest as described in Note 6. In addition, the Company incurred a loss on the extinguishment of debt of $1,066,000 during the year ended July 31, 2019.

 

Loss from discontinued operations. Loss from discontinued operations was $10,000 for the year ended July 31, 2019, as compared to $47,000 for the year ended July 31, 2018. This $37,000 decrease is primarily attributable to other income as a result of an accrual reversal and a gain on the exchange of inventory (see note 3).

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our operations have been primarily financed through private sales of our equity securities and advances under credit facilities available to us.

 

At July 31, 2019, we had cash of $353,000 and working capital of approximately $81,000. We expect that our existing funds will not be sufficient to support our current operations over the next twelve months. No assurance can be given that such additional financing will be available on acceptable terms or at all. Our ability to sell additional shares of our stock and/or borrow cash could be materially adversely affected by the economic uncertainty in the global equity and credit markets. Current economic conditions have been, and continue to be, volatile, and continued instability in these market conditions may limit our ability to access the capital necessary to fund and grow our business and to replace, in a timely manner, maturing liabilities.

Net cash used in operating activities increased to $437,000 for the year ended July 31, 2019 as compared to $221,000 for the year ended July 31, 2018. This $216,000 increase was principally due to the increase in the operating loss of approximately offset by an increase in cash provided by accounts payable and accrued expenses.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities increased to $700,000 for the year ended July 31, 2019 as compared to $300,000 for the year ended July 31, 2018. This $400,000 increase was principally due to an increase in proceeds from promissory notes in 2019 and the issuance of common stock (see Note 7 to the accompanying audited consolidated financial statements).

 

As of November 11, 2019, we had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $290,000. The Company plans include assessing potential mergers, acquisitions and strategic collaborations. We will need to raise additional capital. There can be no assurance that we will be able to raise additional capital on terms acceptable to us or at all.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and Shareholders

Non-Invasive Monitoring Systems, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Non-Invasive Monitoring Systems, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of July 31, 2019 and 2018, and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in shareholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for each of the years ended July 31, 2019 and 2018, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the “financial statements”). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of the Company as of July 31, 2019 and 2018, and the consolidated results of their operations and their cash flows for each of the years ended July 31, 2019 and 2018, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company has experienced recurring net losses, cash outflows from operating activities, has an accumulated deficit and substantial purchase commitment that raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 1. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (“PCAOB”) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

 

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audit also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1. ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS

 

Organization. Non-Invasive Monitoring Systems, Inc., a Florida corporation (together with its consolidated subsidiaries, the “Company” or “NIMS”), began business as a medical diagnostic monitoring company to develop computer-aided continuous monitoring devices to detect abnormal respiratory and cardiac events using sensors on the human body’s surface. It has ceased to operate in this market. The Company has developed and marketed its Exer-Rest® line of acceleration therapeutic platforms based upon unique, patented whole body periodic acceleration (“WBPA”) technology of which the Company maintains patents. The Company currently does not have any operational inventory.

 

Business. The Company developed a third generation of Exer-Rest acceleration therapeutic platforms (designated the Exer-Rest AT3800 and the Exer-Rest AT4700). The Company is currently a shell company (as defined in Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act).

 

Going Concern. The Company’s consolidated financial statements have been prepared and presented on a basis assuming it will continue as a going concern. As reflected in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the Company had net losses from continuing operations of approximately $1.6 million and $0.4 million for the year ended July 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, and has experienced cash outflows from operating activities. The Company also has an accumulated deficit of approximately $28.0 million as of July 31, 2019. The Company had $353,000 of cash at July 31, 2019 and working capital of approximately $81,000. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company is seeking potential mergers, acquisitions and strategic collaborations. There is no assurance that the Company will be successful in this regard, and, if not successful, that it will be able to continue its business activities. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Discontinued Operations. On May 3, 2019 the Company exchanged inventory for forgiveness of accrued unpaid rent. The Company has no inventory, no immediate plans to replenish inventory and has no current plans to develop or market new products.

 

Accordingly, the Company determined that the assets and liabilities met the discontinued operations criteria in Accounting Standards Codification 205-20-45 and were classified as discontinued operations at July 31, 2019. See Discontinued Operations Note 4.

 

Equity Exchange Agreement. On December 3, 2018, the Company entered into an Equity Exchange Agreement with IRA Financial Trust Company, a South Dakota trust corporation, IRA Financial Group LLC, a Florida limited liability company (collectively “IRA Financial”), and their respective equity holders. The Company, IRA Financial and the equity holders subsequently amended the Exchange Agreement on three occasions to extend the outside date for consummation of the Exchange, with the last such extension expiring on July 3, 2019.

 

  18  
 

 

On August 4, 2019, IRAFG delivered to the Company notice of termination of the Exchange Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01(b)(i) of that agreement due to the failure of the Exchange to have closed on or prior to the Outside Date. No termination fees, penalties or other amounts are payable by the Company in respect of such termination.

 

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Consolidation. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Non-Invasive Monitoring Systems of Florida, Inc., which has no current operations, and NIMS of Canada, Inc., a Canadian corporation, which has no current operations. All inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Use of Estimates. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions, such as warranty accrual and deferred taxes as estimates, that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ materially from these estimates.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents. The Company considers all highly liquid short-term investments purchased with an original maturity date of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company had approximately $353,000 and $90,000, on deposit in bank operating accounts at July 31, 2019 and July 31, 2018, respectively.

 

Inventories. Inventories are stated at lower of cost or net realizable value using the first-in, first-out method, and are evaluated at least annually for impairment. Inventories at July 31, 2018 primarily consisted of finished Exer-Rest units, spare parts and accessories. Provisions for potentially obsolete or slow-moving inventory are made based on management’s analysis of inventory levels, historical obsolescence and future sales forecasts. The Company had fully written down its inventory during the year ended July 31, 2018 and had no inventory value at July 31, 2019 and July 31, 2018.

 

Income Taxes. The Company provides for income taxes using an asset and liability based approach. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are recorded to reflect the tax consequences in future years of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial statement and income tax purposes. The deferred tax asset for loss carryforwards and other potential future tax benefits has been fully offset by a valuation allowance since it is uncertain whether any future benefit will be realized. The utilization of the loss carryforward is limited to future taxable earnings of the Company and may be subject to severe limitations if the Company undergoes an ownership change pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code Section 382.

 

The Company files its tax returns as prescribed by the laws of the jurisdictions in which it operates. Tax years ranging from 2015 to 2018 remain open to examination by various taxing jurisdictions as the statute of limitations has not expired. It is the Company’s policy to include income tax interest and penalty expense in its tax provision.

 

  19  
 

  

Warranties. The Company’s warranties are two years on all Exer-Rest® products sold domestically and one year for products sold outside of the U.S. and are accrued based on management’s estimates and the history of warranty costs incurred. There were no material warranty costs incurred during the twelve months ended July 31, 2019 and 2018.Warranty accrual of approximately $12,000 is included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities as of July 31, 2018. The warranty accrual approximately $12,000 was reversed in 2019 based on management’s determination of likelihood of warranty claim and accordingly there is no warranty accrual as of July 31, 2019.

 

Stock-based compensation. The Company recognizes all share-based payments, including grants of stock options, as operating expenses, based on their grant date fair values. Stock-based compensation expense is recognized over the vesting life of the underlying stock options and is included in general and administrative costs and expenses in the consolidated comprehensive statements of operations for all periods presented. Forfeitures are accounted for when they occur.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments. Fair value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of July 31, 2019 and July 31, 2018. The respective carrying value of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments such as cash, prepaid expenses, deposits, other current assets, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair values because they are short term in nature or they bear current market interest rates. The standard describes a fair value hierarchy based on three levels of inputs, of which the first two are considered observable and the last unobservable, that may be used to measure fair value which are the following:

 

Level 1 — quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2 — other significant observable inputs for the assets or liabilities through corroboration with market data at the measurement date.

 

Level 3 — significant unobservable inputs that reflect management’s best estimate of what market participants would use to price the assets or liabilities at the measurement date.

 

Financial instruments recognized in the consolidated balance sheet consist of cash, prepaid expenses, deposits, and other current assets. The Company believes that the carrying value of its current financial instruments approximates their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments. The Company does not hold any derivative financial instruments.

 

The respective carrying value of the notes payable – related party and notes payable – other approximate our current borrowing rate for similar debt instruments of comparable maturity and are considered Level 3 measurements within the fair value hierarchy.

 

The following table presents changes in Level 3 financial liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis:

 

    Level 3  
Fair value of promissory notes at July 31, 2018   $ 2,125,000  
Additions:     100,000  
Reductions:     (2,225,000)  
Changes in fair value     -  
Fair value at July 31, 2019   $ -  

 

  20  
 

 

Loss Contingencies. We recognize contingent losses that are both probable and estimable. In this context, we define probability as circumstances under which events are likely to occur. In regard to legal costs, we record such costs as incurred.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements. The Company considers the applicability and impact of all Accounting Standard Updates (“ASU’s”). ASU’s not discussed below were assessed and determined to be either not applicable or are expected to have minimal impact on our consolidated balance sheets or consolidated comprehensive statement of operations.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230). This standard addresses the classification of eight specific cash flow issues with the objective of reducing the existing diversity in practice. ASU 2016-15 will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. The Company implemented this ASU on August 1, 2018. The adoption of this update did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). ASU 2016-02 impacts any entity that enters into a lease with some specified scope exceptions. This new standard establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model that requires a lessee to record a ROU asset and a lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the statement of operations. The guidance updates and supersedes Topic 840, Leases. For public entities, ASU 2016-02 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods with those years, beginning after December 15, 2018, and early adoption is permitted. A modified retrospective transition approach is required for leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements, with certain practical expedients available. The Company currently has no long-term leases. However, in the event that the Company should enter any long-term leases it would then evaluate the effect that the new guidance would have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

3. INVENTORIES

 

On May 3, 2019 the Company exchanged inventory for forgiveness of $15,000 of accrued unpaid rent. The Company had previously written off the value of this inventory resulting in a gain on the forgiveness of approximately $15,000.

 

4. DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

 

On May 3, 2019 the Company exchanged its inventory for forgiveness of accrued unpaid rent. Concurrent with the exchange management with the appropriate level of authority determined to discontinue the operations of the product segment.

The Company plans to realize or collect prepaid expense and resolve any remaining accounts payable and accrued expenses from discontinued operations during the next six months.

 

5. STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

 

The Company measures the cost of employee, officer and director services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the grant-date fair value of the award. The fair value of the Company’s stock option awards is expensed over the vesting life of the underlying stock options using the graded vesting method, with each tranche of vesting options valued separately. The Company did not record any stock-based compensation during the twelve months ended July 31, 2019 and 2018.

 

In November 2010, the Company’s Board and Compensation Committee approved the Non-Invasive Monitoring Systems, Inc. 2011 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2011 Plan”).

8. BASIC AND DILUTED LOSS PER SHARE

 

Basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per common share is computed giving effect to all dilutive potential common shares that were outstanding during the period. Diluted potential common shares consist of incremental shares issuable upon exercise of stock options and warrants and conversion of preferred stock. In computing diluted net loss per share for the years ended July 31, 2019 and 2018, no dilution adjustment has been made to the weighted average outstanding common shares because the assumed exercise of outstanding options and warrants and the conversion of preferred stock would be anti-dilutive.

 

Potential common shares not included in calculating diluted net loss per share are as follows:

 

    July 31, 2019     July 31, 2018  
Series C Preferred Stock     -       1,551,200  
Series D Preferred Stock     -       13,910,000  
Total     -       15,461,200

10. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Leases.

 

The Company was under an operating lease agreement for our corporate office space that expired in 2012. The lease currently continues on a month to month basis at no cost.

 

We housed our inventory in approximately 4,000 square feet of warehouse space in Pembroke Park, Florida. The lease commenced September 15, 2014 and originally expired on September 30, 2015 and we exercised our option to renew the lease and extended the expiration to September 15, 2017. Following the expiration, we have remained on a month-to-month term. On May 3, 2019 the Company exchanged inventory for forgiveness of $15,000 of accrued unpaid rent. The Company had previously written off the value of this inventory resulting in a gain on the forgiveness of approximately $15,000.

 

The Company no longer leases this Pembroke Park warehouse following the sale of inventory.

 

Product Development and Supply Agreement.

 

In September 2007, the Company entered into a Product Development and Supply Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Sing Lin Technologies Co. Ltd., a company based in Taichung, Taiwan (“Sing Lin”). Pursuant to the Agreement, the Company consigned to Sing Lin the development and design of the next generation Exer-Rest and related devices. The Agreement commenced as of September 3, 2007 and had a term that extended three years from the acceptance by NIMS of the first run of production units. Thereafter, the Agreement automatically renewed for successive one year terms unless either party sent the other a notice of non-renewal. Either party was permitted to terminate the Agreement with ninety days prior written notice. Upon termination, each party’s obligations under the Agreement were to be limited to obligations related to confirmed orders placed prior to the termination date.

 

Pursuant to the Agreement, Sing Lin designed, developed and manufactured the tooling required to manufacture the acceleration therapeutic platforms for a total cost to the Company of $471,000. Sing Lin utilized the tooling in the performance of its production obligations under the Agreement. The Company paid Sing Lin $150,000 of the tooling cost upon execution of the Agreement and $150,000 upon the Company’s approval of the product prototype concepts and designs. The balance of the final tooling cost became due and payable in September 2008 upon acceptance of the first units produced using the tooling, and was paid in full during the year ended July 31, 2009.

 

Under the now-terminated Agreement, the Company also granted Sing Lin the exclusive distribution rights for the products in certain countries in the Far East, including Taiwan, China, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia and certain other countries. Sing Lin agreed not to sell the Products outside its geographic areas in the Far East.

 

The Agreement provided for the Company to purchase approximately $2.6 million of Exer-Rest units within one year of the September 2008 acceptance of the final product. The Agreement further provided for the Company to purchase $4.1 million and $8.8 million of Exer-Rest products in the second and third years following such acceptance, respectively. These minimum purchase amounts were based upon 2007 product costs multiplied by volume commitments. Through July 31, 2019, the Company had paid Sing Lin $1.7 million in connection with orders placed through that date. As of July 31, 2019, the Company has approximately $41,000 of payables due to Sing Lin. As of July 31, 2019, aggregate minimum future purchases under the Agreement totaled approximately $13.9 million.

 

As of July 31, 2019, the Company had not placed orders sufficient to meet the first-year or second-year minimum purchase obligations under the Agreement. The Company notified Sing Lin in June 2010 that it was terminating the Agreement effective September 2010, and Sing Lin in July 2010 demanded that the Company place orders sufficient to fulfill the three year minimum purchase obligations in the Agreement. As of November 11, 2019, Sing Lin has not followed up on its July 2010 demand. There can be no assurance that Sing Lin will not attempt to enforce its remedies under the Agreement, or pursue other potential remedies. The Company believes that Sing Lin in no longer in business.

11. RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES AND CONCENTRATIONS OF RISK

 

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to risk consist principally of purchases and advances to contract manufacturer.

 

12. ACCOUNTS PAYABLE AND ACCCRUED EXPENSES

 

Accounts payable and accrued expenses from continuing operations are summarized in the following table (in thousands):

 

    July 31, 2019     July 31, 2018  
Accounts payable   $ 198     $ 252  
Accrued interest     -       1,223  
Accrued redemption     10       -  
Accrued other     17       7  
Total   $ 225     $ 1,482  

 

13. INCOME TAXES

 

The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability method, the objective of which is to establish deferred tax assets and liabilities for the temporary differences between the financial reporting and the tax bases of the Company’s assets and liabilities at enacted tax rates expected to be in effect when such amounts are realized or settled. A valuation allowance related to deferred tax assets is recorded when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

The accounting for uncertain tax positions guidance under ASC 740 requires that we recognize the financial statement benefit of a tax position only after determining that the relevant tax authority would more likely than not sustain the position following an audit. For tax positions meeting the more-likely-than-not threshold, the amount recognized in the financial statements is the largest benefit that has a greater than 50 percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the relevant tax authority. The application of this guidance does not affect the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows for the years ended July 31, 2019 and 2018.

 

The Company files its tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, Canada federal jurisdiction and with various U.S. states and the Ontario province of Canada. The Company is subject to tax audits in all jurisdictions for which it files tax returns. Tax audits by their very nature are often complex and can require several years to complete. There are currently no tax audits that have commenced with respect to income tax or any other returns in any jurisdiction. Tax years ranging from 2015 to 2018 remain open to examination by various taxing jurisdictions as the statute of limitations has not expired. Because the Company is carrying forward income tax attributes, such as net operating losses and tax credits from 2014 and earlier tax years, these attributes can still be audited when utilized on returns filed in the future. It is the Company’s policy to include income tax interest and penalties expense in its tax provision.

 

On December 22, 2017, the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” (Tax Reform), was signed into law. In addition to changes or limitations to certain tax deductions, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act permanently lowered the corporate tax rate to 21% from the existing maximum rate of 35%, effective for tax years commencing January 1, 2018. As a result of the reduction of the corporate tax rate to 21%, the Company reduced the amount of its net deferred tax assets by $2 million, with a corresponding decrease in the valuation allowance, which resulted in no net tax adjustment.

 

  26  
 

 

The difference between income taxes at the statutory federal income tax rate of 21% in 2019 and 2018 and income taxes reported in the consolidated comprehensive statements of operations are attributable to the following (in thousands):

 

    July 31, 2019     %     July 31, 2018     %  
Income tax benefit at the federal statutory rate from continuing operations   $ (337 )     21.0     $ (85 )     21.0  
State income taxes, net of effect of federal taxes     (23 )     1.5       (17 )     4.0  
Loss from extinguishment of debt     224       (13.9 )     -       -  
Expired net operating losses     138       (8.6 )     -       -  
Tax Reform – Reduction in tax rate     -       -       2,011       (505 )
Change in valuation allowance     (2 )     -       (1,909 )     479  
Provision for income tax – continuing operations     -       -       -       -  

 

Income tax benefit at the federal statutory rate for discontinued operations     (2 )     21.0       (10 )     21.0  
State income taxes, net of effect of federal taxes     -       5.3       (3 )     5.0  
Change in valuation allowance     2       (26.3 )     13       (26.0 )
Provision for income tax – discontinued operations     -       -       -       -  
Total   $ -       -     $ -       -  

 

The tax effects of temporary differences that give rise to significant portions of the deferred tax assets consist of the following (in thousands):

 

    July 31, 2019     July 31, 2018  
Federal and State net operating loss   $ 4,146     $ 4,146  
Foreign net operating loss     18       18  
Stock-based compensation and other     116       116  
      4,280       4,280  
Less: Valuation allowance     (4,280 )     (4,280 )
Net deferred tax asset   $     $  

 

At July 31, 2019, the Company had available Federal and State net operating loss carry forwards of approximately $16.4 million and foreign net operating loss carry forwards of approximately $0.1 million which expire in various years beginning in 2020. Net operating loss carry forwards generated in 2019 and later years never expire. However, these net operating losses can only be used to reduce taxable income by 80 percent. The net operating loss carry forwards may be subject to limitation due to change of ownership provisions under section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code and similar state provisions.

 

A valuation allowance is required to reduce the deferred tax assets reported if, based on the weight of the evidence, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. After consideration of all the evidence, both positive and negative, management has determined that a full $4.3 million valuation allowance at July 31, 2019 ($4.3 million at July 31, 2018) was necessary. The decrease in the valuation allowance for the years ended July 31, 2019 and 2018 were approximately $0.0 million and $1.9 million (which includes a reduction of $2.0 million resulting from the change in federal tax rate from Tax Reform), respectively. The Company paid no taxes for the years 2019 or 2018.

14. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

Equity Exchange Agreement. On December 3, 2018, the Company entered into an Equity Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with IRA Financial Trust Company, a South Dakota trust corporation, IRA Financial Group LLC, a Florida limited liability company, and their respective equity holders. The Company, IRA Financial and the equity holders subsequently amended the Exchange Agreement on three occasions to extend the outside date for consummation of the Exchange, with the last such extension expiring on July 3, 2019.

 

On August 4, 2019, IRA Financial Group delivered to the Company notice of termination of the Exchange Agreement pursuant to Section 8.01(b)(i) of that agreement due to the failure of the Exchange to have closed on or prior to the Outside Date. No termination fees, penalties or other amounts are payable by the Company in respect of such termination.

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that: (i) pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company; (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the Company; and (iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

For the period ended July 31, 2019, pursuant to Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, management (with the participation of our principal executive officer and principal financial officer) conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the framework established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). Based on this evaluation, management concluded that, as of July 31, 2019, our internal control over financial reporting was effective.

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm EisnerAmper LLP, regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit us to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the last quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
