Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

  

Note 1 - Organization of the Company and Description of the Business

 

Q BioMed Inc. (“Q BioMed” or “the Company”), incorporated in the State of Nevada on November 22, 2013, is a biomedical acceleration and development company focused on licensing, acquiring and providing strategic resources to life sciences and healthcare companies. Q BioMed intends to mitigate risk by acquiring multiple assets over time and across a broad spectrum of healthcare related products, companies and sectors.  The Company intends to develop these assets to provide returns via organic growth, revenue production, out-licensing, sale or spinoff new public companies.

 

On December 7, 2016, the Company formed its wholly-owned subsidiary in Cayman Islands, “Q BioMed Cayman SEZC” (the “Subsidiary”). The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary.  All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Note 2 - Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying interim period unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") regarding interim financial reporting. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet as of February 28, 2019, the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations for the three months ended February 28, 2019 and 2018, and the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the three months ended February 28, 2019 and 2018, are unaudited, but include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, which the Company considers necessary for a fair presentation of its financial position, operating results and cash flows for the periods presented. The Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheet at November 30, 2018 has been derived from audited financial statements included in the Company's Form 10-K, most recently filed with the SEC on March 7, 2019. The results for the three months ended February 28, 2019 and 2018 are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for the full fiscal year or any other period.

 

The accompanying interim period unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related financial information included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Form 10-K.

 

The Company currently operates in one business segment focusing on licensing, acquiring and providing strategic resources to life sciences and healthcare companies. The Company is not organized by market and is managed and operated as one business. A single management team reports to the chief operating decision maker, the Chief Executive Officer, who comprehensively manages the entire business. The Company does not currently operate any separate lines of business.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. 

 

The Company has and is expected to incur net losses and cash outflows from operations in pursuit of extracting value from its acquired intellectual property. These matters, amongst others, raise doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

As of February 28, 2019, the Company has raised operating funds through contacts, high net-worth individuals and strategic investors. The Company has not generated any revenue from operations since inception and has limited assets upon which to commence its business operations.  Management anticipates that the Company will have to raise additional funds and/or generate revenue from drug sales within twelve months to continue operations. Additional funding will be needed to implement the Company’s business plan that includes various expenses such as fulfilling our obligations under licensing agreements, legal, operational set-up, general and administrative, marketing, employee salaries and other related start-up expenses. Obtaining additional funding will be subject to a number of factors, including general market conditions, investor acceptance of our business plan and initial results from our business operations. These factors may impact the timing, amount, terms or conditions of additional financing available to us. If the Company is unable to raise sufficient funds, management we will be forced to scale back the Company’s operations or cease our operations.

 

Management has determined that there is substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the consolidated financial statements are issued. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts, or amounts and classification of liabilities that might result from this uncertainty.

 

Note 3 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

The Company’s significant accounting policies are disclosed in the audited financial statements for the year ended November 30, 2018 included in the Company’s Form 10-K. Since the date of such financial statements, there have been no changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies.

Income Taxes

 

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are computed based upon the difference between the financial statement and income tax basis of assets and liabilities using the enacted marginal tax rate applicable when the related asset or liability is expected to be realized or settled.  Deferred income tax expenses or benefits are based on the changes in the asset or liability each period.  If available evidence suggests that it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized, a valuation allowance is required to reduce the deferred tax assets to the amount that is more likely than not to be realized.  Future changes in such valuation allowance are included in the provision for deferred income taxes in the period of change. 

 

In its interim consolidated financial statements, the Company utilizes an expected annual effective tax rate in determining its income tax provisions for the interim periods. That rate differs from U.S. statutory rates primarily as a result of valuation allowance related to the Company’s net operating loss carryforward as a result of the historical losses of the Company.

 

Recent accounting pronouncements

 

On February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02,  Leases (Topic 842) . Under the new guidance, lessees will be required to recognize all leases (with the exception of short-term leases) on the balance sheet as a lease liability, which is a lessee’s obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease, measured on a discounted basis and a right-of-use asset, which is an asset that represents the lessee¹s right to use, or control the use of, a specified asset for the lease term.  The guidance in ASU 2017-11 is effective for the Company on December 1, 2019. Early adoption is permitted, and the guidance is to be applied using a full or modified retrospective approach. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the new standard on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In July 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-11,  Earnings Per Share (Topic 260); Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (Topic 480); Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): (Part I) Accounting for Certain Financial Instruments with Down Round Features, (Part II) Replacement of the Indefinite Deferral for Mandatorily Redeemable Financial Instruments of Certain Nonpublic Entities and Certain Mandatorily Redeemable Noncontrolling Interests with a Scope Exception.  The ASU allows companies to exclude a down round feature when determining whether a financial instrument (or embedded conversion feature) is considered indexed to the entity’s own stock. As a result, financial instruments (or embedded conversion features) with down round features may no longer be required to be accounted classified as liabilities. A company will recognize the value of a down round feature only when it is triggered and the strike price has been adjusted downward. For equity-classified freestanding financial instruments, such as warrants, an entity will treat the value of the effect of the down round, when triggered, as a dividend and a reduction of income available to common shareholders in computing basic earnings per share. For convertible instruments with embedded conversion features containing down round provisions, entities will recognize the value of the down round as a beneficial conversion discount to be amortized to earnings. The guidance in ASU 2017-11 is effective for the Company on December 1, 2019. Early adoption is permitted, and the guidance is to be applied using a full or modified retrospective approach. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the new standard on its consolidated financial statements.

 

Recent adopted pronouncements

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), as modified by ASU 2015-14, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Deferral of the Effective Date , ASU 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations (Reporting Revenue Gross versus Net), ASU 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing , and ASU 2016-12, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients . The revenue recognition principle in ASU 2014-09 is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. In addition, new and enhanced disclosures will be required. Companies may adopt the new standard either using the full retrospective approach, a modified retrospective approach with practical expedients, or a cumulative effect upon adoption approach. The adoption of this standard on December 1, 2018 did not impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Q BIOMED INC.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments . This new standard clarifies certain aspects of the statement of cash flows, including the classification of debt prepayment or debt extinguishment costs or other debt instruments with coupon interest rates that are insignificant in relation to the effective interest rate of the borrowing, contingent consideration payments made after a business combination, proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims, proceeds from the settlement of corporate-owned life insurance policies, distributions received from equity method investees and beneficial interests in securitization transactions. This new standard also clarifies that an entity should determine each separately identifiable source of use within the cash receipts and payments on the basis of the nature of the underlying cash flows. In situations in which cash receipts and payments have aspects of more than one class of cash flows and cannot be separated by source or use, the appropriate classification should depend on the activity that is likely to be the predominant source or use of cash flows for the item.  The adoption of this standard on December 1, 2018 did not impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements. 

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-07, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718), Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting . This ASU is intended to simplify aspects of share-based compensation issued to non-employees by making the guidance consistent with the accounting for employee share-based compensation. The adoption of this standard on December 1, 2019 did not impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements. 

 

Note 4 – Loss per share

 

Basic net loss per share was calculated by dividing net loss by the weighted-average common shares outstanding during the period.  Diluted net loss per share was calculated by dividing net loss by the weighted-average common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method or the two-class method, whichever is more dilutive. The table below summarizes potentially dilutive securities that were not considered in the computation of diluted net loss per share because they would be anti-dilutive.

 

      For the Three Months Ended February 28,  
Potentially dilutive securities     2019     2018  
Warrants     4,984,058     4,877,558  
Convertible Notes     2,042,014      
Stock Options     900,000     500,000  

 

Note 5 - Convertible Notes

 

      February 28, 2019     November 30, 2018  
Convertible Notes:              
Principal value of 5.5%, convertible at $2.00 at February 28, 2019 and November 30, 2018, due March 21, 2020   $ 4,000,000   $ 4,000,000.00  
Fair value of bifurcated contingent put option of convertible notes     289,000     262,000  
Debt discount     (1,152,604 )   (1,388,728 )
Carrying value of convertible notes     3,136,396     2,873,272  
Total long-term carrying value of convertible notes   $ 3,136,396   $ 2,873,272  

  

The monthly payment provision within the convertible notes is a contingent put option that is required to be separately measured at fair value, with subsequent changes in fair value recognized in the Consolidated Statement of Operations. The maximum redemption is discounted at 35.17%, the calculated effective rate of the convertible notes before measurement of the contingent put option. The fair value estimate is a Level 3 measurement. The Company estimated the fair value of the monthly payment provision, using probability analysis of the occurrence of a Triggering Date applied to the discounted maximum redemption premium for any given payment with the following key inputs:

 

      For the Three Months Ended February 28, 2019  
Stock price     $1.88  
Terms (years)     1.0 - 1.1  
Volatility     81.70%  
Risk-free rate     2.44 - 2.54%  
Dividend yield     0.00%  

  

Amortization of the debt discount associated with the convertible notes was approximately $236,000 for the three-month period ended February 28, 2019 and was included in interest expense in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations.

Note 6 – Commitments and Contingencies

 

Legal

 

On December 28, 2018, the Company commenced litigation against BioNucleonics, Inc. (“BNI”) and parties related to BNI in the Supreme Court of New York, New York County (removed to federal court in February 2019). The litigation stems from a license agreement that the Company entered into with BNI in 2016 and amended from time to time. Under the agreement with BNI, the Company were granted a worldwide, exclusive license on certain BNI intellectual property and the option to acquire the BNI IP within three years of the agreement. The BNI IP consists of generic Strontium Chloride SR89 (generic Metastron®) (“SR89”) and all of BNI’s intellectual property relating to it (“BNI IP”). SR89 is a radiopharmaceutical therapeutic for cancer bone pain therapy.

 

In exchange for the consideration, the Company agreed, upon reaching various milestones, to issue to BNI an aggregate of up to 110,000 shares of common stock and to provide funding to BNI for an aggregate of $850,000 in cash. Under the agreement, once the Company has funded up to $850,000 in cash, the Company may exercise the option to acquire the BNI IP at no additional charge. By our accounts, the Company have provided BNI with over $950,000 in cash. The Company has exercised our option to acquire the BNI IP, but BNI has not transferred the BNI IP to us. As a result, the Company has commenced litigation to, among other actions, obtain all of the BNI IP. The Company also seeks judgments against BNI and related parties for the misappropriation of funds, breach of contract, fraud and fraudulent inducement.

 

Periodically, the Company reviews the status of significant matters, if any exist, and assesses our potential financial exposure. If the potential loss from any claim or legal claim is considered probable and the amount can be estimated, the Company accrues a liability for the estimated loss.  Legal proceedings are subject to uncertainties, and the outcomes are difficult to predict.  Because of such uncertainties, accruals are based on the best information available at the time.  As additional information becomes available, the Company reassesses the potential liability related to pending claims and litigation.

 

Advisory Agreements

 

The Company entered into customary consulting arrangements with various counterparties to provide consulting services, business development and investor relations services, pursuant to which the Company agreed to issue shares of common stock as services are received.

 

Lease Agreement

 

In December 2016, the Subsidiary entered into a lease agreement for its office space located in Cayman Islands for $30,000 per annum.  The initial term of the agreement ends in December 2019 and can be renewed for another three years.

 

Rent expense is classified within general and administrative expenses on a straight-line basis and included in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations as follows:

 

      For the three months ended February 28,  
      2019     2018  
Rent expense   $ 7,500   $ 7,500  

 

License Agreement

 

Mannin

 

On October 29, 2015, the Company entered into a Patent and Technology License and Purchase Option Agreement (“Exclusive License”) with a vendor whereby the Company was granted a worldwide, exclusive, license on, and option to, acquire certain intellectual property (“Mannin IP”) which initially focused on developing a first-in-class eye drop treatment for glaucoma within the four-year term of the Exclusive License.

 

During the three months ended February 28, 2019 and 2018, the Company incurred approximately $604,000 and $619,000, respectively, in research and development expenses to fund the costs of development of the eye drop treatment for glaucoma pursuant to the Exclusive License. 

 

Note 7 - Related Party Transactions

 

The Company entered into consulting agreements with certain management personnel and stockholders for consulting and legal services.

Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report contains forward-looking statements about our business, financial condition and prospects that reflect management’s assumptions and beliefs based on information currently available. The expectations indicated by such forward-looking statements might not be realized.  If any of our management’s assumptions should prove incorrect, or if any of the risks and uncertainties underlying such expectations should materialize, our actual results may differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements.

 

The key factors that are not within our control and that may have a direct bearing on operating results include, but are not limited to, acceptance of our services, our ability to create and expand our customer base, managements’ ability to raise capital in the future, the retention of key employees and changes in the regulation of our industry.

 

There may be other risks and circumstances that management may be unable to predict.  When used in this Quarterly Report, words such as, “believes," "expects," "intends," "plans," "anticipates," "estimates" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although there may be certain forward-looking statements not accompanied by such expressions.

 

Overview

 

Q BioMed Inc. (or “the Company”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on November 22, 2013 and is a biomedical acceleration and development company focused on licensing, acquiring and providing strategic resources to life sciences and healthcare companies. We intend to mitigate risk by acquiring multiple assets over time and across a broad spectrum of healthcare related products, companies and sectors.  We intend to develop these assets to provide returns via organic growth, revenue production, out-licensing, sale or spin out.

 

Recent Developments

 

Metastron/Strontium89 Chloride USP Injection

 

On November 23, 2018, we entered into an Asset Sale Agreement (“ASA”) with GE Healthcare Limited (“GE”) whereby we acquired GE’s radiopharmaceutical drug, Metastron® and all related intellectual property including, but not limited to sales and distribution data, market authorizations and trademarks for Metastron® in various countries. We are working with GE to affect the transfer of all the market authorizations including the immediate transfer of those affected by Brexit into jurisdictions that make future commercial operations more feasible should Brexit occur. We are also working with our US based contract manufacture to produce product mimicking the GE process previously used in their facility in the United Kingdom. This process is underway and should result in a smooth transition and seamless regulatory filing with very few, if any changes in the process requiring approval. The facility will need to be approved by the FDA to release final drug product once it is produced, tested, validated and observed for sterility. We remain confident that we will have commercial release in the second half of 2019.

 

The same facility is awaiting FDA approval to manufacture the generic version of the drug. The regulatory supplement was filed in August 2018. We believe that the FDA and our licensor BioNucleonics are in communication to affect the approval which could come at any moment. Given the lengthy delay and BioNucleonics’s refusal to share communications or transfer the ownership of the licensed asset to us per our agreement, we initiated litigation to compel them to perform on their obligations and to be awarded significant monetary damages. While the outcome of this litigation is still to be determined, we are confident in our position that we have performed fully in all material respects. In addition, our strategic acquisition of Metastron has positioned us more favorably in the global market with trademarks and market authorizations in 22 countries. We believe that while the BioNucleonics issues have delayed our commercial release, we are now in a much stronger position to capitalize on global demand for an effective non-opioid for the treatment of this debilitating bone pain associated with metastatic cancers. Over 2 million people are suffering from this condition, and we believe many of them could benefit from treatment with our drug.

 

GDF15 License from Washington University

 

On March 9, 2019, we exercised our option to exclusively license GDF15, a diagnostic marker for determining the severity of glaucoma using the expression levels of Growth Differentiation Factor 15 (“GDF15”) from the Washington University in St. Louis. Determining the severity of glaucoma using this biomarker will aid in treatment decisions for patients diagnosed with, and being treated for, glaucoma.

 

Currently, no single examination or diagnostic test is able to accurately predict disease progression. Accurate monitoring for disease progression is critical to preserve visual function in glaucoma patients. Today, physicians only have surrogate measures to evaluate glaucomatous neurodegeneration. GDF15 represents an attractive biomarker for glaucoma with distinct advantages including early detection, over conventional clinical tests and has the potential to be a first-in-class diagnostic test. GDF15 was discovered by Dr. Rajendra Apte, the Paul A. Cibis Distinguished Professor of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at Washington University School of Medicine.

 

13

 

 

Subsequently our technology partner Mannin Research entered into a research collaboration with the Biointerfaces Institute at McMaster University in Ontario, Canada to develop a GDF15 biomarker diagnostic kit for monitoring glaucoma severity and progression. This enabling technology will act as a companion diagnostic to the MAN-01 small molecule therapeutic with a novel mechanism of action for the treatment of Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma. The aim is to develop a simple integrated diagnostic test that can be performed at a physician's office with no external, expensive equipment.

 

The intent is to create prototype assays for the detection of GDF15 which will be suitable for point-of-care testing. The prototype kits are to be validated in a clinical setting with glaucoma patients. This will lead to a 510(k) filing with the FDA to gain approval for the use of the kit as a diagnostic medical device. We estimate the prototyping process to take approximately 18 months, at which point we would begin the 510(k) submission process for the in vitro diagnostic.

 

Taken together, these assets represent an important combination as a solution to address the need for better ways to detect and track glaucoma (GDF15 biomarker and the GDF15 diagnostic kit) and to treat glaucoma (MAN-01). By combining a novel diagnostic tool with a first-in-class therapeutic candidate we believe we have a unique solution that addresses the needs of patients with glaucoma, as well as the physicians who are providing the care, addressing both the adherence and compliance issues of current glaucoma treating pharmaceutical offerings. There are 70 million people suffering from glaucoma, and we believe this approach delivers an opportunity to put precision medicine in the hands of the physicians treating those patients.

 

Mannin Research License Extension

 

On March 26, 2019, we extended the option period to wholly acquire the Mannin Research tie2 platform. The period was extended from October 2019 to October 2021 in exchange for the issuance of 100,000 restricted shares of own common stock.

 

Financial Overview

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

This management’s discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based on our condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities in our condensed consolidated financial statements. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and judgments, including those related to fair value of financial instruments, research and development costs, accrued expenses and stock-based compensation. We base our estimates on historical experience, known trends and events and various other factors that we believe 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. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. Other than as set out in Note 3 to our accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements we believe there have been no significant changes in our critical accounting policies as described in the Form 10-K.

 

Unaudited Results of Operations for the three months ended February 28, 2019 and 2018:

 

14

 

      For the Three Months Ended February 28,  
      2019     2018  
Operating expenses:              
General and administrative expenses   $ 1,242,711   $ 1,320,754  
Research and development expenses     814,699     853,425  
Total operating expenses     2,057,410     2,174,179  
               
Other expenses:              
Interest expense     290,672      
Change in fair value of embedded derivatives     27,000      
Total other expenses     317,672      
               
Net loss   $ (2,375,082 ) $ (2,174,179 )

   

Operating expenses

 

We incur various costs and expenses in the execution of our business. The increase in operating expenses was mainly due to more professional and research & development fees incurred in connection with the license agreements with Mannin, BNI and Asdera.

 

Other expenses

 

During the three months ended February 29, 2019, interest expense increased to $291,000 from $0 in the prior year. Interest expense in the three months ended February 29, 2019 is comprised of approximately $236,000 accretion of debt discount and approximately $54,000 of accrued interest expense based on the coupon interest rate of the outstanding debt. During the three months ended February 29, 2019, we recognized a loss of $27,000 resulting from the change in fair value of embedded contingent put options in convertible notes with a principal balance of $4 million.

 

During the three months ended February 29, 2018, there was no activities.

 

Net loss

 

In the three months ended February 28, 2019 and 2018, we incurred net losses of approximately $2.4 million and $2.2 million, respectively.  Our management expects to continue to incur net losses for the foreseeable future, due to our need to continue to establish a broader pipeline of assets, expenditure on R&D and implement other aspects of our business plan.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We prepared the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements assuming that we will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.

 

We have not yet established an ongoing source of revenues and must cover our operating through debt and equity financings to allow us to continue as a going concern. We had approximately $1.3 million in cash as of February 28, 2019.  Our ability to continue as a going concern depends on the ability to obtain adequate capital to fund operating losses until we generate adequate cash flows from operations to fund our operating costs and obligations. If we are unable to obtain adequate capital, we could be forced to cease operations.

 

We depend upon our ability, and will continue to attempt, to secure equity and/or debt financing. We cannot be certain that additional funding will be available on acceptable terms, or at all.  Our management determined that there was substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the condensed consolidated financial statements were issued, and management’s concerns about our ability to continue as a going concern within the year following this report persist. 

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or amounts and classification of liabilities that might result from this uncertainty.

 

Cash Flows

 

The following table sets forth the significant sources and uses of cash for the periods addressed in this report:

 

15

 

      For the Three Months Ended February 28,  
      2019     2018  
Net cash (used in) provided by:              
Operating activities   $ (1,370,932 ) $ (1,583,025 )
Financing activities         4,945,251  
Net (decrease) increase in cash   $ (1,370,932 ) $ 3,362,226  

 

Net cash used in operating activities was approximately $1.4 million for the three months ended February 28, 2019 as compared to approximately $1.6 million for the three months ended February 28, 2018.  The increase in net cash used in operating activities relates to the net loss of approximately $2.4 million for the three months ended February 28, 2019, partially offset by aggregate non-cash expenses of approximately $759,000.  The net cash used in operating activities of approximately $1.6 million for the three months ended February 28, 2018 results from the net loss of approximately $2.2 million, partially offset by aggregate non-cash expenses of approximately $492,000.

 

There was no activities for the three months ended February 28, 2019.  Net cash provided by financing activities was approximately $4.9 million for the three months ended February 28, 2018, resulting from proceeds received from the issuance of common stock and warrants of approximately $5.4 million, offset by offering costs of approximately $0.5 million.  

 

Commitments and Contingencies

 

Legal

 

On December 28, 2018, we commenced litigation against BioNucleonics, Inc. (“BNI”) and parties related to BNI in the Supreme Court of New York, New York County. The litigation stems from a license agreement that we entered into with BNI in 2016 and amended from time to time. Under the agreement with BNI, we were granted a worldwide, exclusive license on certain BNI intellectual property and the option to acquire the BNI IP within three years of the agreement. The BNI IP consists of generic Strontium Chloride SR89 (generic Metastron®) (“SR89”) and all of BNI’s intellectual property relating to it (“BNI IP”). SR89 is a radiopharmaceutical therapeutic for cancer bone pain therapy.

 

In exchange for the consideration, we agreed, upon reaching various milestones, to issue to BNI an aggregate of up to 110,000 shares of common stock and to provide funding to BNI for an aggregate of $850,000 in cash. Under the agreement, once we have funded up to $850,000 in cash, we may exercise the option to acquire the BNI IP at no additional charge. By our accounts, we have provided BNI with over $950,000 in cash. We have exercised our option to acquire the BNI IP, but BNI has not transferred the BNI IP to us. As a result, we have commenced litigation to, among other actions, obtain all of the BNI IP. We also seek judgments against BNI and related parties for the misappropriation of funds, breach of contract, fraud and fraudulent inducement. In February 2019, such lawsuit was removed to the Federal court located in the Southern District of New York.

 

Periodically, we review the status of significant matters, if any exist, and assesses our potential financial exposure. If the potential loss from any claim or legal claim is considered probable and the amount can be estimated, we accrue a liability for the estimated loss.  Legal proceedings are subject to uncertainties, and the outcomes are difficult to predict.  Because of such uncertainties, accruals are based on the best information available at the time.  As additional information becomes available, we reassess the potential liability related to pending claims and litigation.

 

Advisory Agreements

 

We entered into customary consulting arrangements with various counterparties to provide consulting services, business development and investor relations services, pursuant to which we agreed to issue shares of common stock as services are received.

 

Lease Agreement

 

In December 2016, we entered into a lease agreement for office space located in Cayman Islands for $30,000 per annum.  The initial term of the agreement ends in December 2019 and can be renewed for another three years.

 

Rent expense is classified within general and administrative expenses on a straight-line basis and included in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations as follows:

 

      For the three months ended February 28,  
      2019     2018  
Rent expense   $ 7,500   $ 7,500  

 

License Agreement

 

16

 

Mannin

 

On October 29, 2015, we entered into a Patent and Technology License and Purchase Option Agreement (“Exclusive License”) with a vendor whereby we were granted a worldwide, exclusive, license on, and option to, acquire certain intellectual property (“Mannin IP”) which initially focused on developing a first-in-class eye drop treatment for glaucoma within the four-year term of the Exclusive License.

 

During the three months ended February 28, 2019 and 2018, we incurred approximately $604,000 and $619,000, respectively, in research and development expenses to fund the costs of development of the eye drop treatment for glaucoma pursuant to the Exclusive License. 

 

Related Party Transactions

 

We entered into consulting agreements with certain management personnel and stockholders for consulting and legal services. Consulting and legal expenses resulting from such agreements were included within general and administrative expenses in the accompanying Condensed Consolidated Statements of Operations as follows:

 

      For the three months ended February 28,  
      2019     2018  
Consulting and legal expenses   $ 102,446   $ 60,000  

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosure About Market Risk

 

This item is not applicable as we are currently considered a smaller reporting company.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our Principal Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the period covered by this Report. Based on that evaluation, it was concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are not effective to reasonably assure that information we are required to disclose in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and principal financial officer, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

We do not have an Audit Committee; our board of directors currently acts as our Audit Committee.  Only one of our three directors is an independent director, and none of our directors is considered a “Financial Expert,” within the meaning of Section 407 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. We have interviewed additional potential independent directors, but have not engaged any.

 

Changes in internal controls over financial reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the period covered by this report, which has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting. We have engaged accounting and compliance consultants to review our internal controls over financial reporting and other compliance requirements.

 

Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls and Procedures

 

In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives. In addition, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and that management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating the benefits of possible controls and procedures relative to their costs.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

 

On December 28, 2018, we commenced litigation against BioNucleonics, Inc. (“BNI”) and parties related to BNI. The litigation stems from a license agreement that we entered into with BNI in 2016, as amended. Under the agreement with BNI, we were granted a worldwide, exclusive license on certain BNI intellectual property and the option to acquire the BNI IP within three years of the agreement. The BNI IP consists of generic Strontium Chloride SR89 (generic Metastron®) (“SR89”) and all of BNI’s intellectual property relating to it (“BNI IP”). SR89 is a radiopharmaceutical therapeutic for cancer bone pain therapy.

 

Under the agreement, once we have funded up to $850,000 in cash, we may exercise the option to acquire the BNI IP at no additional charge. By our accounts, we have provided BNI with over $950,000 in cash. We have exercised our option to acquire the BNI IP, but BNI has not transferred the BNI IP to us. As a result, we have commenced litigation to, among other actions, obtain all of the BNI IP. We also seek judgments against BNI and related parties for the misappropriation of funds, breach of contract, fraud and fraudulent inducement. In February 2019, such lawsuit was removed to the Federal court located in the Southern District of New York.
