This prospectus supplement no. 7 (the “Prospectus Supplement”) supplements the information contained in the prospectus dated July 3, 2018 (the “Prospectus”) relating to the offer and sale from time to time of up to 47,500,000 shares of our common stock by the selling stockholder of OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. named in the Prospectus. The number of shares offered for sale by the selling stockholder consists of up to (i) 140% of the 25,000,000 shares (or 35,000,000 shares) of our common stock currently issuable upon the conversion of 500 shares of our new series of preferred stock designated as Series A Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred Shares”) held by the selling stockholder and (ii) 12,500,000 shares of our common stock currently issuable upon exercise of warrants held by the selling stockholder (the “Warrants”). The selling stockholder acquired the Preferred Shares and the Warrants from us pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”), dated April 30, 2018, by and between the Company and the investor identified therein (the “Investor”).

 

This Prospectus Supplement is being filed to update and supplement the information in the Prospectus with the information contained in our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 15, 2019 (the “Form 10-Q”). Accordingly, we have attached the Form 10-Q to this Prospectus Supplement.

Any statement that is modified or superseded shall not be deemed to constitute a part of the Prospectus except as modified or superseded by this Prospectus Supplement.

 

Investing in our common stock is highly speculative and involves a high degree of risk. Please consider carefully the specific factors set forth under “Risk Factors” beginning on page 4 of the Prospectus and in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission nor any other regulatory body has approved or disapproved of these securities or passed upon the accuracy or adequacy of the disclosures in the Prospectus. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

Cautionary Statement regarding Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), that involve risks and uncertainties. All statements other than statements of historical fact contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including statements regarding future events, our future financial performance, business strategy and plans and objectives of management for future operations, are forward-looking statements. We have attempted to identify forward-looking statements by terminology including “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” “would,” “expect,” “plan,” “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate” and “continue,” or the negative of such terms or other similar expressions. Although we do not make forward-looking statements unless we believe we have a reasonable basis for doing so, we caution you that these statements are based on our good faith projections of the future that are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other factors, many of which are beyond our control. These and other important factors, including those discussed under the heading “Risk Factors” in Part 1, Item 1A of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), may cause our actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements, to differ materially. These forward-looking statements include, among other things, statements about:

 

  our ability to continue as a going concern;
  our ability to generate revenue or achieve profitability;
  our ability to obtain additional financing on acceptable terms, if at all;
  our ability to obtain insurance coverage;
  performance of our information technology and storage systems;
  a disruption or breach of our information technology systems;
  our dependence on the success of cannabinoid technology;
  our ability to keep pace with technological advances;
  legal and regulatory developments in the United States and foreign countries;
  the success and timing of our preclinical and clinical trials;
  our ability to secure Israeli licenses to use cannabis for medical research;
  the rate and degree of market acceptance of cannabis-based medical products;
  the success of competing products or therapies that become available;
  our dependence on third parties;
  the performance of third parties upon which we depend;
  our ability to obtain and maintain protection for our intellectual property;
  our ability to protect and defend against litigation, including intellectual property claims;
  our ability to obtain licenses, if necessary, on commercially reasonable terms or at all;
  our ability to attract and retain key personnel;
  risks related to operating in Israel;
  the volatility of the price of our Common Stock;
  the marketability of our Common Stock;
  our broad discretion to invest or spend the proceeds from our financings in ways with which our stockholders may not agree and may have limited ability to influence; and
  other risks and uncertainties, including those listed in Part 1, Item 1A, “Risk Factors” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 filed with the SEC and those listed under Item 1A, “Risk Factors” of this Report on Form 10-Q.

 

Moreover, we operate in a highly competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks emerge from time to time and it is not possible for us to predict all risk factors, nor can we address the impact of all factors on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause our actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements.

 

You should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, each of which applies only as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. All forward-looking statements included in this document are based on information available to us on the date hereof. We undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any of the forward-looking statements after the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.

 

As used in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, unless the context indicates or otherwise requires, “our Company”, the “Company”, “OWC,” “we,” “us,” and “our” refer to OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp., a Delaware corporation, and its consolidated subsidiary, One World Cannabis Ltd., a company organized under the laws of Israel collectively.

NOTE 1 - GENERAL

 

  A. Organizational Background

 

OWC Pharmaceutical Research Corp. (“OWCP” or the “Company”) is a Delaware corporation and was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on March 7, 2008. The Company is a medical cannabis-based research and development company that applies conventional pharmaceutical research protocols and disciplines to the field of medical cannabis with the objective of establishing a leadership position in the research and development of medical cannabis therapies, products and delivery technologies. The Company is currently engaged in the research and development of cannabis-based medical products (the “Product Prospects”) for the treatment of multiple myeloma, psoriasis, chronic pain syndromes, fibromyalgia PTSD and development of unique delivery systems. These include a cannabis-based topical ointment, cannabis sublingual disintegrating tablet and advanced Nasal delivery.

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements of OWCP and its wholly owned subsidiary One World Cannabis, Ltd. (“OWC” or the “Israeli subsidiary”) were prepared from the accounts of the Company under the accrual basis of accounting.

 

  B. Liquidity and Going Concern

 

The development and commercialization of the Company’s product is expected to require substantial expenditures. The Company has not yet generated material revenues from operations and therefore is dependent upon external sources for financing its operations. As of March 31, 2019, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $29,276. In addition, in each year since its inception the Company reported losses and negative cash flows from operating activities. Moreover, the Company is not in compliance with the Equity Conditions (as defined in the Series A Certificate of Designation) and therefore the Purchaser in the April 2018 PIPE transaction (as discussed below) can elect to redeem its outstanding Series A Convertible Preferred Stock in a cash amount that will not allow the Company to maintain its operation for the next 12-month period (see also Note 4). Management considered the significance of such conditions in relation to the Company’s ability to meet its current and future obligations and determined that such conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from the possible inability of the Company to continue as a going concern. Until the Company generates sufficient revenues to fund its operations (if ever), the Company plans to finance its operations through the sale of equity or equity-linked securities and/or debt securities and, to the extent available, short-term and long-term loans. There can be no assurance that the Company will succeed in obtaining the necessary financing to continue its operations as a going concern.

 

On April 30, 2018, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with a new investor (the “Purchaser”), pursuant to which, the Company issued (i) 500 shares of Preferred Stock designated as Series A Convertible Preferred Stock that are initially convertible into 25,000,000 shares of common stock and (ii) Warrants that are eligible for conversion initially into 12,500,000 shares of common stock for an aggregate purchase price of $5,000 (see also Note 4C) (the “April 2018 PIPE”). In addition, during the three months ended March 31, 2018, the Company received $105 through payment of stock subscriptions.

  C. Risk factors

 

The Company has a limited operating history and faces a number of risks and uncertainties, including risks and uncertainties regarding continuation of the development process, demand and market acceptance of the Company’s products, the effects of technological changes, competition and the development of products by competitors. Additionally, other risk factors also exist, such as the ability to manage growth and the effect of planned expansion of operations on the Company’s future results and the availability of necessary financing. In addition, the Company expects to continue incurring significant operating costs and losses in connection with the development and marketing of its products.

 

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

  A. Basis of Presentation

 

Accounting Principles

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related notes should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and related notes contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) related to interim financial statements. As permitted under those rules, certain information and footnote disclosures normally required or included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The financial information contained herein is unaudited; however, management believes all adjustments have been made that are considered necessary to present fairly the results of the Company’s financial position and operating results for the interim periods. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2019 has been derived from the consolidated financial statements contained in our Annual Report on form 10-K.

 

The results for the three months ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2019 or for any other interim period in the future.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect amounts reported of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates and be based on events different from those assumptions. As part of these financial statements, the more significant estimates include (1) identification of financial instruments in liabilities (including embedded derivative), equity and mezzanine transactions and proper classification and measurement of financial instruments; (2) evaluation of going concern; and (3) contingencies.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Cont.)

 

Net Loss Per Share

 

The Company computes net loss per share in accordance with ASC 260, “Earnings per share”. Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, net of the weighted average number of treasury shares (if any). Securities that may participate in dividends with the common stock (such as the Series A convertible Preferred Stock) are considered in the computation of basic income per share using the two-class method. However, in periods of net loss, participating securities are included only if the holders of such securities have a contractual obligation to share the losses of the Company. Accordingly, the outstanding Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, which was issued on April 30, 2018 was excluded from the computation of the net loss per share for the three months period ended March 31, 2019.

 

Diluted loss per common share is computed similar to basic earnings per share, except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional potential common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive. Potential common shares are excluded from the computation for a period in which a net loss is reported or if their effect is anti-dilutive. The Company’s potential common shares consist of stock options, certain stock warrants and restricted stock awards issued under the Company’s stock incentive plans and their potential dilutive effect is considered using the treasury method and of the Series A convertible Preferred Stock, certain stock warrants and embedded derivative related to the contingent redemption feature of the Series A convertible Preferred Stock which their potential dilutive effect is considered using the “if-converted method”.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, diluted loss per share excludes the impact of stock options, certain stock warrants, restricted stock awards, Series A convertible Preferred Stock and embedded derivative related to the contingent redemption feature of the Series A convertible Preferred Stock totaling 70,214,064 and 27,005,370 shares, respectively, as the effect of their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

 

On January 1, 2019, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (ASU 2016-02), as amended, which supersedes the lease accounting guidance under Topic 840, and generally requires lessees to recognize operating and financing lease liabilities and corresponding Right-of-Use (ROU) assets on the balance sheet and to provide enhanced disclosures surrounding the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leasing arrangements. The Company adopted the new guidance using the modified retrospective transition approach by applying the new standard to leases existing at the date of initial application and not restating comparative periods. The most significant impact was the recognition of ROU assets and lease liabilities for operating leases, while the Company’s accounting for finance leases remained substantially unchanged (as of the adoption date the Company is not involved in finance leases as lessee or as lessor).

 

The Company elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance, which allowed the Company to carryforward its historical lease classification, its assessment on whether a contract was or contains a lease, and its initial direct costs for any leases that existed prior to January 1, 2019. The Company also elected to keep leases with an initial term of 12 months or less off the balance sheet and recognize the associated lease payments in the consolidated statements of comprehensive loss on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

Upon adoption, the Company recognized total ROU assets of $67, with corresponding liabilities of $67 on the condensed consolidated balance sheets. The adoption did not impact our beginning retained earnings, or our prior year condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive loss and condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.

 

Under Topic 842, the Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception. ROU assets and liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of remaining lease payments over the lease term. For this purpose, the Company considers only payments that are fixed and determinable at the time of commencement. As most of the Company’s leases do not provide an implicit rate, the Company use its incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. The Company’s incremental borrowing rate is a hypothetical rate based on the Company’s understanding of what its credit rating would be. The Company’s lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that we will exercise such options.

 

Operating leases are included in operating lease right-of-use assets, operating lease liabilities, current and operating lease liabilities, non-current on the condensed consolidated balance sheets.

  B. Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued Accounting Standard Update 2018-07, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Non-employee Share-Based Payment Accounting (ASU 2018-07). ASU 2018-07 aligns the measurement and classification guidance for share-based payments to nonemployees with the guidance for share-based payments to employees, with certain exceptions.

 

Consistent with the accounting requirement for employee share-based payment awards, awards within the scope of Topic 718 will be measured at grant-date fair value of the equity instruments that an entity is obligated to issue when the good has been delivered or the service has been rendered and any other conditions necessary to earn the right to benefit from the instruments have been satisfied. Equity-classified nonemployee share-based payment awards will be measured at the grant date.

 

With respect to awards with performance conditions ASU 2018-07 concludes that, consistent with the accounting for employee share-based payment awards, an entity will consider the probability of satisfying performance conditions when nonemployee share-based payment awards contain such conditions.

 

ASU 2018-07 also requires that the classification of equity classified nonemployee share-based payment awards will continue to be subject to the requirements of Topic 718 unless the award was modified after the good has been delivered, the service has been rendered, any other conditions necessary to earn the right to benefit from the instruments have been satisfied, and the nonemployee is no longer providing goods or services. This eliminates the requirement to reassess classification of such awards upon vesting.

 

In addition, ASU 2018-07 includes certain Non-public Entity-Specific Amendments

 

ASU 2018-07 is effective for Public entities in annual periods beginning after December 15, 2018, and interim periods within those years (first quarter of 2019 for the company). Early adoption is permitted, including in an interim period, but not before an entity adopts the new revenue guidance (which was adopted by the Company in its interim financial statements for 2018).

 

An entity should only remeasure liability-classified awards that have not been settled by the date of adoption and equity-classified awards for which a measurement date has not been established through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption. Upon transition, the entity is required to measure these nonemployee awards at fair value as of the adoption date.

 

The adoption of ASU 2018-07 did not have a significant impact on its consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 3: FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” (“ASC 820”), defines fair value as the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. When determining the fair value measurements for assets and liabilities required to be recorded at fair value, the Company considers the principal or most advantageous market in which it would transact and considers assumptions that market participants would use when pricing the asset or liability, such as inherent risk, transfer restrictions and risk of nonperformance.

 

ASC 820 also establishes the following fair value hierarchy that requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

 

  Level 1 - quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;
     
   Level 2 - inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities; or
     
   Level 3 - unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

The Warrants and bifurcated embedded derivative related to Series A convertible Preferred Stock (see also Note 4C) have been classified at Level 3.

 

In estimating the fair value of the Warrants as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, the Company used the following assumptions:

 

12,500,000 Purchaser Warrants:

 

    March 31, 2019     December 31, 2018  
             
Risk-free interest rate (1)     2.22 %     2.49 %
Expected volatility (2)     224.1 %     214.5 %
Expected life (in years) (3)     4.08       4.33

  A. Common Stock

 

The Company’s common stock confer upon their holders the following rights:

 

  The right to participate and vote in the Company’s stockholder meetings, whether annual or special. Each share will entitle its holder, when attending and participating in the voting in person or via agent or letter, to one vote;
     
  The right to a share in the distribution of dividends, whether in cash or in the form of bonus shares, the distribution of assets or any other distribution pro rata to the par value of the shares held by them; and
     
  The right to a share in the distribution of the Company’s excess assets upon liquidation pro rata to the par value of the shares held by them.

 

  B. Series A Convertible Preferred Stock

 

The terms of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock are governed by a Certificate of Designation (the “Series A Certificate of Designation”) filed by the Company with the Delaware Secretary of State on April 30, 2018. Pursuant to the Series A Certificate of Designation, the Company designated 500 shares of the Company’s preferred stock as “Series A Convertible Preferred Stock”. As more fully described below, on April 30, 2018, the Company issued a total of 500 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock in connection with the Share Purchase Agreement. Following is a summary of the material terms of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock:

 

 

Dividends . Holders of shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the ” Series A Convertible Preferred Shares”) are entitled to receive dividends on each share of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, payable quarterly on March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 31, commencing June 30, 2018 (which was prorated) in an amount equal to 5% per annum of the stated value ($10 per share of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock) and which shall be cumulative. Such dividends are to be paid in cash or freely tradeable shares of the Company’s common stock at its sole discretion, subject to certain conditions. If in the event the Company elects to pay a dividend in shares of its common stock to the holders of the Series A Convertible Preferred Shares, the number of shares of its common stock will be determined in accordance with the terms of the Series A Certificate of Designation. The Company may only elect to pay cash dividends to the Series A Convertible Preferred Shares to the extent there are amounts available for the payment of dividends in accordance with applicable Delaware law.

 

During the period commencing April 30, 2018 through December 31, 2018, the Company recorded an amount of $179 as dividend on Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, $65 out of which was paid at January 3, 2019 through issuance of 832,368 shares of common stock.

 

During the period commencing January 1, 2019 through March 31, 2019, the Company recorded an amount of $65 as dividend on Series A Convertible Preferred Stock which was paid by the Company by issuance of 3,563,950 shares of common stock to the Purchaser on April 1, 2019 (see also Note 6A).

NOTE 4 - SERIES A CONVERTIBLE PREFERRED STOCK AND STOCKHOLDERS’ DEFICIT (Cont.)

 

  Liquidation . In the event of a Liquidation, the holders of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (“Holders”) shall be entitled to receive in cash out of the assets of the Company, whether from capital or from earnings available for distribution to its stockholders (the “Liquidation Funds”), before any amount shall be paid to the holders of any other shares of capital stock of the Company (“Junior Stock”), but pari passu with any Parity Stock (preferred shares that are pari passu rank to the Series A convertible Preferred Stock in respect of the preferences as to dividends, redemption rights, distributions and payments upon the liquidation, dissolution and winding up of the Company then outstanding), an amount per Series A Convertible Preferred Stock equal to the greater of (A) the Liquidation Preference thereof on the date of such payment and (B) the Bankruptcy Redemption Amount (as such term is defined in the Series A Certificate of Designation), provided that if the Liquidation Funds are insufficient to pay the full amount due to the Holders and holders of shares of Parity Stock, then each Holder and each holder of Parity Stock shall receive a percentage of the Liquidation Funds equal to the full amount of Liquidation Funds payable to such Holder and such holder of Parity Stock as a liquidation preference, in accordance with their respective certificate of designations (or equivalent), as a percentage of the full amount of Liquidation Funds payable to all holders of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and all holders of shares of Parity Stock. As of March 31, 2019, the aggregate Liquidation Preference amounted to $5,280 (unaudited).

 

  Voting Rights . Holders of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock are entitled to vote on all matters requiring a vote of the shareholder of the Company as a single stock, and each holder of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock is entitled to vote the number of shares of common stock into which such holders Series A Convertible Preferred Stock would be convertible into as of the record date.
     
 

Conversion . The 500 issued shares of the Company’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock are initially convertible into 25,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at a conversion price of $0.20, subject to adjustment pursuant to the anti-dilution provisions of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock as provided in the Series A Certificate of Designation. On November 27, 2018, the conversion price was adjusted as result of occurrence of the Trigger Event (see also Note 4C). The Series A Convertible Preferred Stock have a beneficial ownership limitation such that none of the holders of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock have the right to convert the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock to the extent that after giving effect to such conversion, the holder (together with its affiliates and any other persons acting as a group together with the holder or any of the holder’s affiliates) would beneficially own in excess of 4.99% (the “Maximum Percentage”) of the shares of the Company’s common stock outstanding immediately after giving effect to such conversion. However, by written notice to the Company, a holder of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock may waive the Maximum Percentage provision, when such notice will be effective 61 calendar days after the notice date.

 

Due to the Trigger Event as discussed below, the conversion price was adjusted to an amount equal to (A) 75% of the quotient determined by dividing (x) the sum of the 3 lowest Closing Prices of the Common Stock during the period beginning 10 Trading Days prior to such Triggering Event Conversion Date and ending 3 Trading Days after the shares of Common Stock are received into Holder’s brokerage account and fully cleared for trading, by (y) 3, minus (B) $0.01.

 

Commencing January 1, 2019 through March 31, 2019, the Purchaser converted an aggregate of 50 shares of Preferred Stock into an aggregate of 24,961,347 shares of the Common Stock at the conversion prices in effect on the respective conversion dates.

Redemption . The terms of the Series A Certificate of Designation contains both mandatory and conditional redemption provisions as follows:

 

■     Certain mandatory redemption provisions provide that, beginning January 30, 2019 and continuing for every 30-days period thereafter (each a “Mandatory Redemption Date”), the Company is required to offer to redeem 1/12 th of the outstanding Series A Convertible Preferred Stock for an amount equal to 110% of the stated value ($10) of such shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock plus any accrued but unpaid dividends to the Mandatory Redemption Date (the “Mandatory Redemption Amount”), and may be redeemed in cash or, at the Company’s sole discretion in freely tradeable shares of the Company’s common stock if the Company is in full compliance with all of the Equity Conditions as defined in the Series A Certificate of Designation.

 

■     Upon the occurrence of an offering of debt or equity securities of the Company or any of its subsidiaries resulting gross cash proceeds of not less than $10,000, the Company is required to make an offer to the holders of shares of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock to redeem 50% of the outstanding Series A Convertible Preferred Stock at either (i) 115% of the stated value of each Preferred Share ($10) plus any unpaid accrued dividends if redeemed on or prior to October 30, 2018 or (ii) 120% of the stated value of each Preferred Share ($10) plus any unpaid accrued dividends if redeemed after October 30, 2018 (the “Redemption Premium”).

 

■     Upon sale of assets (other than product to be sold in the normal course of business) of the Company and its subsidiaries in an amount of proceeds in excess of $500, the Company is required to offer to redeem to 100% of the outstanding Series A Convertible Preferred Stock for the Redemption Premium, and may be redeemed in cash or, at the Company’s sole discretion in freely tradeable shares of the Company’s common stock if the Company is in full compliance with all of the equity conditions as defined in the Series A Certificate of Designation.

 

■     The Company may also be required, at the option of holders of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock to redeem any outstanding shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock upon a Change of Control or Bankruptcy Event. Each Preferred Stock shall be redeemed for an amount equal to Redemption Premium, and may be redeemed in cash or, at the Company’s sole discretion in freely tradeable shares of the Company’s common stock if the Company is in full compliance with all of the equity conditions as defined in the Series A Certificate of Designation.

 

■     The Company may, at any time upon at least 15 trading days prior written notice to each holder, redeem all or portion of the outstanding Preferred Stock in cash in an amount equal to Redemption Premium.

 

As of March 31, 2019, the Company is not in compliance with the Equity Conditions and therefore beginning January 31, 2019 for every 30-days period thereafter, at the request of the purchaser, we might be required to redeem in cash, 1/12 th of the outstanding shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock for an amount equal to 110% of the stated value ($10) of such shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock plus any accrued but unpaid dividends up to the Mandatory Redemption Date. As of the date of issuance of these financial statements, the Purchaser has not requested redemption in cash of any shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock.

  C. Securities Purchase Agreement

 

On April 30, 2018 (the “Initial Date”), the Company consummated a private placement transaction (the “April 2018 PIPE”) by entering into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with a non-US-based institutional investor (the “Purchaser”), pursuant to which, the Company sold and the Purchaser bought, (i) 500 shares of Preferred Stock designated as Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Stock”), which are initially convertible into 25,000,000 shares of common stock at a conversion price of $0.20 per share, subject to adjustment pursuant to the anti-dilution provisions of the Preferred Shares, and (ii) Warrants (the “Warrants”) representing the right to initially acquire 12,500,000 shares of common stock over a period of five years from the Initial Date at an exercise price of $0.22 per share, which is subject to certain adjustments including anti-dilution provisions (since the Initial Date through March 31, 2019, no adjustments have been made to the conversion price), for an aggregate purchase price of $5,000.

 

The Company engaged Newbridge as exclusive placement agent for the aforesaid Agreement, pursuant to which the Company was required to pay a cash fee to Newbridge and issued to them warrants to purchase 2,500,000 shares of common stock (or 10% of the aggregate number of fully diluted shares of common stock that have been purchased by an Purchaser) over a period of three years from the Initial Date at an exercise price of $0.20 per share, which is subject to certain adjustments including anti-dilution provisions (since the Initial Date through March 31, 2019, no adjustments have been made to the conversion price). In addition, the Company is also obligated to pay Newbridge a warrants solicitation fee equal to 4% of the gross proceeds received by the Company upon cash exercise of any Warrants purchased by the Purchaser in connection with the Agreement (since the Initial Date through March 31, 2019, no solicitation fee was earned).

 

On November 27, 2018, the Tel Aviv regional Prosecutor’s Service filed criminal charges against Dr. Yehuda Baruch, the Chief Medical and Regulatory Affairs Officer of the Company, alleging that Dr. Baruch conducted an improper sexual relationship with a psychiatric patient. Dr. Baruch denies all allegations. The Company together with its legal counsels believe that such criminal charges are not directed at, and do not concern, the Company, any actions of Dr. Baruch in the Company or any other of the Company’s directors or officers. The Company is evaluating its proposed response, if any, considering the allegations brought against Dr. Baruch.

 

The aforesaid charges brought against Dr. Baruch are considered a “trigger event” (the “Trigger Event”) under the Series A Certificate of Designation. Subject to certain beneficial ownership limitations of the Preferred Stock, at any time during the period commencing on the date of the occurrence of a Trigger Event and ending on the date of the cure of such Trigger Event, the Purchaser of the Preferred Stock may, at its option, by delivery of notice to the Company, specify a future date upon which such holder shall require the Company to convert all, or any number of, Preferred Stock into shares of the Company’s common stock at an adjusted conversion ratio as specified in the Series A Certificate of Designation.

 

Due to the aforesaid Trigger Event, the conversion price was adjusted to an amount equal to (A) 75% of the quotient determined by dividing (x) the sum of the 3 lowest Closing Prices of the Common Stock during the period beginning 10 Trading Days prior to such Triggering Event Conversion Date and ending 3 Trading Days after the shares of Common Stock are received into Holder’s brokerage account and fully cleared for trading, by (y) 3, minus (B) $0.01.

The Warrants are considered a freestanding instrument, as the Company believes they are legally detachable and separately exercisable.

 

As defined in the Agreement, upon certain changes in control events, the Purchaser may elect to receive cash equal to the Black-Scholes value of the outstanding Warrants. Consequently, the Warrants were accounted for and recognized as a non-current financial liability on the consolidated balance sheet under ASC 815-40-25 and were measured at fair value at the initial date and subsequently the Warrants are marked to market in each reporting period until they are exercised or expired, as earlier, with changes in the fair value of the Warrants charged into the statement of comprehensive loss. Thus, the Warrants amounting to $400 and $1,475 were measured at fair value on March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. For the three months period ended March 31, 2019, the Company recorded income in total amount of $1,075, due to revaluation of Warrants to purchase shares of Common Stock in the statement of operations and comprehensive loss as separate line (see also Note 3).

 

In addition, at the Initial Date, the Company identified several embedded features which require separate accounting as derivatives under ASC 815-15. Nevertheless, except specific embedded feature relating to contingent redemption feature in case of other than upon bankruptcy triggering event, the Company determined that all remaining embedded features should not bifurcated from the host contract or the probability of occurrence of such embedded features is low and therefore the fair value of such embedded features was determined to be immaterial upon initial recognition. In addition, the Company determined that the Trigger Event is considered as optional conversion feature upon triggering event that should be estimated at fair value. Thus, the bifurcated embedded derivatives amounting to $8,583 and $8,129 were measured at fair value on March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively. The change in the fair value is resulted from revaluation of the bifurcated embedded derivatives in total amount of $1,290 which was recognized under other expenses in the statement of comprehensive loss in a separate line for the three months ended March 31, 2019. In addition, upon a partial conversion of 50 share of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock into 24,961,347 shares of common stock, a relative portion of $275 was reclassified to equity (see also Note 3).

 

Under ASC 480-10-S99 “Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity”, since the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock have conditional redemption provisions which are outside of the control of the Company and also contain a deemed liquidation preference, the Preferred Stock were classified as mezzanine financing at the initial measurement date at the residual amount, which is the difference between the total proceeds received, the fair value of the Warrants, the fair value of the embedded derivative related to the contingent redemption of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and after consideration with the amount related to the BCF. Subsequently, the Company accretes changes in the redemption value over the period from the date of issuance (or from the date that it becomes probable that the instrument will become redeemable, if later) to the earliest redemption date of the instrument using an appropriate methodology. Changes in the redemption value are considered as changes in accounting estimates.

The Company used the Black-Scholes-Merton pricing model to estimate the fair value of the stock options by taking into account assumptions as follows: expected dividend yield of 0%; risk-free interest rate of 2.51%; expected volatility of 286% and expected term of 3.35 years. The fair value of the stock options at the grant date was $194.

 

C.      On February 4, 2019, the Company granted stock options exercisable into 1,500,000 shares to its Chief Financial Officer, under the 2016 Plan at an exercise price of $0.22 per share. The stock options shall vest over a 3-year period from the vesting start date, such that approximately 166,656 stock options shall vest upon the 1-year anniversary of the start date and the remaining stock options shall vest in 8 equal quarterly instalments thereafter. The Company used the Black-Scholes-Merton pricing model to estimate the fair value of the stock options by taking into account assumptions as follows: expected dividend yield of 0%; risk-free interest rate of 2.51%; expected volatility of 252% and expected term of 4.49 years. The fair value of the stock options at the grant date was $151.

  3. On December 6, 2018, the Company has entered into a Settlement Agreement (the “Agreement”) with the “Plaintiff”, in the Tel Aviv Regional Court of Labor, pursuant to which subject to receiving a withholding tax certificate from the Plaintiff, the Company will issue to the Plaintiff a number of shares of the Company’s common stock at an aggregate value of $725 on the issuance date. The price per share will be determined based on the average closing price of the share during the three business days preceding the date in which the Company receives the withholding tax certificate from the Plaintiff.
     
    In addition, the Company has provided the Plaintiff a price protection for a period of 6-months (the “Limitation Period”) commencing the date in which the withholding tax certificate has been received by the Company, under which if the value of the common stock issued to the Plaintiff falls below $725 at the end of the Limitation Period, in such case the Company will issue the Plaintiff additional common stock to get the aggregate value back to $725.
     
    The Company and the Plaintiff mutually agreed to dismiss all claims other than the Company’s claims against the Plaintiff in the USA.
     
    As of the filing date of these consolidated financial statements, the withholding tax certificate has not been received by the Company and therefore as of that date, the number of shares to be issued to the Plaintiff, cannot be considered as fixed and determinable. Also, the Company has not yet issued any shares to the Plaintiff and the price protection feature has not been granted.
     
    As the obligation will be settled only through the issuance of the Company’s common stock, the liability related to shares to be issued was presented as non-current as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, in total amount of $725.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The following information should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial information and the notes thereto included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the audited consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on April 1, 2019. Our actual results could differ materially from those discussed in these forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to these differences include those factors discussed below and elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, particularly in “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements,” and discussed in the section entitled “Risk Factors” included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2018 and in Item 1A. Risk Factors.

 

Overview

 

We are an early stage medical cannabis research and development company that applies conventional pharmaceutical research protocols and disciplines to the field of medical cannabis with the objective of establishing a leadership position in the research and development of medical cannabis therapies, products and delivery technologies. We are currently engaged in the research and development and have conducted trials on the efficacy of cannabis-based medical products (the “Cannabis-Based Medical Products”) commencing with our cannabis-based topical ointment for the treatment of psoriasis. In addition, we also are pursuing the use of our Cannabis-Based Medical Products for the treatment of multiple myeloma, post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”), chronic pain and fibromyalgia, and have made significant advancements in the development of a cannabis soluble tablet delivery system that could have applications for other indications. We are also capable of providing consulting and advisory services to governmental and private entities to assist them with developing and implementing tailor-made, comprehensive medical cannabis programs, although we have not generated any revenues from such services to date.

 

We have been engaged in research and development and consulting and advisory activities through our wholly-owned Israeli subsidiary, One World Cannabis Ltd., since July 2014. To date, we have entered into binding agreements with major hospitals and medical research facilities in Israel for the purpose of conducting research studies and trials related to the development and use of Cannabis-Based Medical Products for the treatment of multiple myeloma, psoriasis, PTSD, chronic pain and fibromyalgia, and for the development of a cannabis soluble tablet delivery system.

 

On March 14, 2019, the Company executed a contract with the Souraski Medical Center Fund in Tel Aviv to perform a Single-Dose, Randomized, Crossover Study to compare the Safety, Tolerability and Pharmacokinetics of OWC’s Medical Grade Cannabis - Orally Disintegrating Tablets (MGC-ODT) with Buccal Sativex ® , in Healthy Adult Volunteers. This Clinical Trial Agreement (the “Agreement”) is entered into by and among One World Cannabis Ltd. and The Medical, Infrastructure and Health Services Fund of the Tel Aviv Medical Center, Israel, and Prof. Jacob Ablin M.D. as the Principal Investigator. The primary objectives of the study are:

 

1. To investigate the pharmacokinetics profile of THC, 11-OH THC and CBD following a single sublingual dose of MGC-ODT.
   
2. To compare the pharmacokinetic profiles of THC, THC metabolite 11-hydroxy-THC and CBD following a single administration of the investigational MGC-ODT vs. Sativex ® Oromucosal Spray.
   
3. To monitor and compare the safety and tolerability of the MGC-ODT and Sativex ® in the participating subjects.

 

On January 29, 2019 we reported positive safety data from our Phase 1 trial for our medical grade cannabis MGC ointment for the treatment of skin diseases. No severe adverse events were observed in the trial.

April 2018 PIPE

 

On April 30, 2018 (the “Initial Date”), we consummated a private placement transaction (the “April 2018 PIPE”) by entering into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with a non-US-based institutional investor (the “Purchaser”), pursuant to which, we sold and the Purchaser bought, (i) 500 shares of our new series of preferred stock designated as Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Preferred Stock”), which were initially convertible into 25,000,000 shares of Common Stock at an initial conversion price of $0.20 per share (which was adjusted upon occurrence of the Triggering Event (as defined below), subject to adjustment pursuant to the anti-dilution provisions of the Preferred Stock, and (ii) Warrants (the “Warrants”) representing the right to acquire initially 12,500,000 shares of Common Stock over a period of five years from the Initial Date at an initial exercise price of $0.22 per share, which is subject to certain adjustments including anti-dilution provisions, for an aggregate purchase price of $5,000,000.

 

Commencing January 1, 2019 through March 31, 2019, the Purchaser converted an aggregate of 50 shares of Preferred Stock into an aggregate of 24,961,347 shares of the Common Stock at the conversion prices in effect on the respective conversion dates. Since March 31, 2019 through May 14, 2019, the Purchase converted an additional 7 shares of Preferred Stock into an aggregate of 15,064,605 shares of Common Stock at the conversion prices in effect on the respective conversion dates.

 

Newbridge Securities Corporation, through LifeTech Capital (“Newbridge”), acted as exclusive placement agent for the April 2018 PIPPE and we are obligated to pay a cash fee of $375,000 to Newbridge and issue to them warrants to purchase 2,500,000 shares of Common Stock (or 10% of the aggregate number of fully diluted shares of Common Stock that have been purchased by the Purchaser) over a period of three years from the Initial Date at an exercise price of $0.20 per share, which is subject to certain adjustments including anti-dilution provisions. In addition, we are also obligated to pay Newbridge a warrant solicitation fee equal to 4% of the gross proceeds that we receive upon cash exercise of any Warrants purchased by the Purchaser in connection with the Agreement (since the Initial Date through March 31, 2019, no solicitation fee was earned as no warrants were exercised).

 

In connection with the Agreement, we entered into a Registration Rights Agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) with the Purchaser, pursuant to which, among other things, we have agreed to use our commercially reasonable best efforts to (i) prepare and file with the SEC within 60 calendar days of the offering a registration statement covering the shares of Common Stock underlying the Preferred Stock and Warrants and (ii) have the registration statement and any amendment thereto to be declared effective by the SEC within 90 calendar days from the date of the initial filing of such registration statement. We filed a registration statement covering the shares of Common Stock underlying the Preferred Stock and Warrants, which was declared effective by the SEC on July 2, 2018.

 

The Warrants are considered a freestanding instrument, as we believe they are legally detachable and separately exercisable.

 

The accounting effects of the April 2018 PIPE transaction for the three months ended March 31, 2019 are discussed in Note 4 to our Consolidated Financial Statements included herein. As the April 2018 PIPE transaction was completed on the Initial Date, it did not impact the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2018 (which presented as comparative in this filing).

 

Going Concern

 

The development and commercialization of our product is expected to require substantial expenditures. We have not yet generated material revenues from operations and therefore are dependent upon external sources for financing our operations. In addition, in each year since our inception we reported losses and negative cash flows from operating activities. Moreover, we are required to redeem shares of our Series A Convertible Preferred Stock in cash amount that will not allow us to maintain our operations for the next twelve months. This means that there is substantial doubt that we can continue as a going concern for the next twelve months unless we obtain additional capital to pay our bills and meet our other financial obligations. Accordingly, we must raise capital from sources other than the actual sale of the product. We must raise capital to implement our projects and stay in business. There can be no assurance that we will be able to continue to raise equity and/or debt capital from investors on terms and conditions satisfactory to us, or otherwise, and/or have adequate capital resources required by us to fund our current and future planned operations. If we are unable to obtain adequate capital resources to fund operations, we may be required to delay, scale back or eliminate some or all of our plan of operations, which may have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and ability to continue as a going concern.

Our lack of operating history may make it difficult to raise capital. Our inability to borrow funds or raise equity capital to facilitate our business plan may have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and future prospects.

 

Our Study on Psoriasis

 

On June 28, 2018, we announced the successful completion of the first part of our Phase I, placebo controlled, maximal dose trial (the “Psoriasis Trial”) to determine the safety and tolerability of the topical ointment containing medical grade cannabis (the “Topical Ointment”) in healthy volunteers. The completed part of our Psoriasis Trial consisted of application of escalating doses of the Topical Ointment to healthy volunteers and was successfully completed with no adverse effects. After the completion of the second part of our Psoriasis trial, we plan to initiate a Phase II Trial to demonstrate the efficacy of the Topical Ointment in treating mild to moderate psoriasis and other inflammatory skin diseases.

 

On January 29, 2019 we reported positive Phase 1 safety data for our medical grade cannabis MGC ointment for the treatment of skin diseases. No severe adverse events were observed in the trial.

 

We expect to initiate a Phase 2 trial of MGC ointment for the treatment of psoriasis during the fourth quarter of 2019.

 

Results of Operations

 

Results of Operations during the three months ended March 31, 2019, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2018

 

We have not generated any revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2019 or 2018. We have operating expenses related to research and development expenses and general and administrative expenses.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2019, we incurred a net loss of $1,000,000 due to general and administrative expenses of $498,000, research and development expenses of $285,000, income of $1,075,000 from the revaluation of liability related to the warrants, loss of $1,290,000 from revaluation of bifurcated embedded derivative related to Series A convertible Preferred Stock and financial expenses of $2,000, as compared to a net loss of $977,000 due to general and administrative expenses of $821,000, research and development expenses of $155,000 and financial expenses of $1,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

Our general and administrative expenses decreased by $323,000 or 39.3% during the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to the same period in the prior year, primarily due to decreased of stock-based compensation and amortization of services receivable expenses. The charges relating to stock-based compensation and services receivable expenses were $75,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to an expense of $586,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2018. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was partially offset by increases in legal and consulting expenses due to reverse share split and increase in base salary.

 

Our research and development expenses increased by $130,000 or 83.9% during the three months ended March 31, 2019 as compared to the same period in the prior year mainly due to increase in head count and to active trials costs.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of March 31, 2019, we had current assets of $2,854,000 consisting of $2,800,000 in cash and cash equivalents and other current assets of $54,000. As of March 31, 2019, we had property and equipment carried at $73,000, net of $38,000 in accumulated depreciation and lease right-of-use asset of $60,000. We had total assets of $2,949,000 as of March 31, 2019.

 

  30  
 

 

Lease assets and liabilities existed at March 31, 2019, but not at December 31, 2018.

 

As of December 31, 2018, we had current assets of $3,516,000 consisting of $3,464,000 in cash and cash equivalents and other current assets of $52,000. We had property and equipment valued at $73,000, net of $36,000 in accumulated depreciation. We had total assets of $3,553,000 as of December 31, 2018.

 

As of March 31, 2019, we had $509,000 in current liabilities consisting of $163,000 in accounts payable, $220,000 in other current liabilities, deferred revenues of $100,000 and lease liabilities of $26,000.

 

As of December 31, 2018, we had $438,000 in current liabilities consisting of $98,000 in accounts payable, $240,000 in other current liabilities and deferred revenues of $100,000.

 

We had positive working capital of $2,345,000 as of March 31, 2019 compared to positive working capital of $3,078,000 as of December 31, 2018. Our accumulated deficit as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 was $29,276,000 and $27,222,000, respectively.

 

As of March 31, 2019, we had $9,742,000 in non-current liabilities consisting of $8,583,000 in bifurcated embedded derivative related to Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, $400,000 in liability related to warrants to purchase common stock, $34,000 in lease liabilities and $725,000 in liability related to shares to be issued.

 

We used $665,000 in our operating activities during the three months ended March 31, 2019, which was due to a net loss of $1,000,000 ,amortization of services receivable of $35,000, stock-based compensation expenses of $40,000, revaluation income of liability related to warrants to purchase common stock of $1,075,000, revaluation expense of bifurcated embedded derivative related to the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock of $1,290,000, depreciation expense of $2,000, an increase in accounts payable of $65,000, an increase in other current assets of $2,000 and a decrease in other liabilities of $20,000.

 

We used $371,000 in our operating activities during the three months ended March 31, 2018, which was due to a net loss of $977,000 partially offset by amortization of services receivable of $240,000, stock-based compensation of $345,000, depreciation expense of $2,000, a decrease in accounts payable of $2,000, a decrease in other prepaid expenses of $63,000 and a decrease in other current liabilities of $42,000.

 

Our financing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2018 provided us with $105,000 through collection of a stock subscription receivable. There were no cash flows from financing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2018.

 

Based upon our cash position of $2,800,000 on March 31, 2019 we believe that we do not have sufficient cash to allow us to maintain our operations for the next twelve-month period. As of March 31, 2019, we are not in compliance with the Equity Conditions (as defined in our Series A Certificate of Designation) and therefore beginning January 31, 2019, for every 30-days period thereafter, at the request of the purchaser, we might be required to redeem in cash, 1/12 th of the outstanding shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, for an amount equal to 110% of the stated value ($10,000) of such shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock plus any accrued but unpaid dividends up to the Mandatory Redemption Date. As of the date of issuance of these financial statements, the Purchaser has not requested redemption in cash of any shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock. Management considered the significance of such conditions in relation to our ability to meet its current and future obligations and determined that such conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. We believe that in order to execute on our plans we need to raise additional capital, either equity or debt, and there can be no assurance that additional capital will be sufficient to fund our anticipated expenditure requirements to execute on our plans. There is also no assurance that additional capital will be on terms and conditions favorable to us.

 

The development and commercialization of our product is expected to require substantial expenditures. We have not yet generated material revenues from operations and therefore we dependent upon external sources for financing our operations. As of March 31, 2019, we have an accumulated deficit of $29,276,000. In addition, during the three months ended March 31, 2019, excluding the revaluation income of liability related to warrants to purchase common stock in an amount of $1,075,000, and the revaluation of bifurcated embedded derivative in an amount of $1,290,000, we reported losses, and negative cash flows from operating activities.

Funding of Our Research Programs

 

On October 22, 2014, we entered into a service agreement with the Sheba Academic Medical Center’s hospital (“Sheba”) relating to the use of cannabis to treat myeloma. Within the framework of this service agreement, we conducted pre-clinical studies on multiple myeloma, which have commenced in April 2015. Pursuant to this service agreement, we are obligated to pay Sheba $170,000. As of March 31, 2019, we have paid Sheba $66,000 as per Sheba’s payment requests.

 

In addition, pursuant to another service agreement, we were obliged to pay Sheba $170,000 throughout 2017 and 2018 for conducting the Study for the cream for treatment of psoriasis. As of March 31, 2019, we have paid the entire amount.

 

At present, we use our available working capital to fund these studies.

 

Our expenditures allocated to our corporate activities conducted through our facilities in Ramat Gan were $12,000 for the three months period ended March 31, 2019 and we expect it will be a total of approximately $49,000 for the year ending December 31, 2019.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of March 31, 2019, the Company’s chief executive officer and chief financial officer conducted an evaluation regarding the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based upon the evaluation of these controls and procedures, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective as of March 31, 2019.

Material Weaknesses and Remediation of Material Weaknesses

 

The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15. Internal control over financial reporting is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and 15(d)-15(f) under the Exchange Act as a process designed to provide reasonable assurance to the Company’s management and Board of Directors regarding the preparation and fair presentation of published financial statements. Management conducted an assessment of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2019 based on the framework and criteria established by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in Internal Control-Integrated Framework (2013). Management is not permitted to conclude that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting is effective if there are one or more material weaknesses in the Company’s internal control over financing reporting. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal controls over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of a company’s annual or interim consolidated financial statements would not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Based on our assessment and those criteria, we have concluded that our internal controls over financial reporting were ineffective because of the identification of material weaknesses including lack of sufficient internal accounting personnel, lack of sufficient internal controls (including IT general controls) that encompass the Company as a whole with respect to entity and transactions level controls in order to ensure complete documentation of complex and non-routine transactions and adequate financial reporting during the three months ended March 31, 2019. Management has identified corrective actions for the weaknesses and intends to implement procedures to address before mentioned material weaknesses during the remainder of fiscal year 2019.

 

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.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting or in other factors identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Exchange Act Rules 13a-15 or 15d-15 that occurred during the three months ended March 31, 2019 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

There have been no material changes in the risks facing the Company as described in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, filed with the SEC on April 1, 2019.

 

The risks described in our Annual Report and this Quarterly Report are not the only risks facing our company.
