NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

NOTE 1 — THE BUSINESS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

   

Business– Enochian BioSciences Inc., (“Enochian”, or “Registrant”, and together with its subsidiaries, the “Company”, “we” or “us”) is a pre-clinical stage biotechnology company committed to using our genetically modified cellular and immune-therapy technologies to prevent or potentially cure HIV, Hepatitis B (HBV), and to provide potentially life-long cancer remission of some of the deadliest cancers. 

 

Basis of Presentation- The Company prepares consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and follows the rules and regulations of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The accompanying financial statements are unaudited. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (which include only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows at September 30, 2020 and 2019 and for the periods then ended have been made. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The accompanying unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s June 30, 2020 audited financial statements. The results of operations for the periods ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year.

 

Consolidation - For the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the consolidated financial statements include the accounts and operations of the Registrant, and its subsidiaries. All material inter-company transactions and accounts have been eliminated in the consolidation.

 

Reclassification–Certain amounts in the prior period financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current presentation. For the three months ended September 30, 2019, we reclassified consulting expense of $31,850, to general and administrative expenses.

 

Accounting Estimates - The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimated. Significant estimates include the fair value and potential impairment of intangible assets, and fair value of equity instruments issued.

 

COVID-19- During March 2020, a global pandemic was declared by the World Health Organization related to the rapidly growing outbreak of a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19). The pandemic has significantly affected the economic conditions in the U.S. A number of states, counties and municipalities issued orders requiring persons who were not engaged in essential activities and businesses to remain at home. On March 27, 2020, the US enacted the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Aid (“CARES Act”) to help stimulate an economic recovery; however, there are no reliable estimates of how long the pandemic will last or how many people are likely to be affected by it. No one knows what over-all effects the COVID-19 pandemic will have on economic conditions during the remainder of the fiscal year.

 

Our senior management team is monitoring COVID-19’s impact daily and will continue to adjust our operations as necessary. However, the impact of this event on the Company’s results of operations, financial position, and liquidity or capital resources cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.

 

Functional Currency & Foreign currency translation - The functional currency of Enochian Denmark is the Danish Kroner (“DKK”). The Company’s reporting currency is the U.S. Dollar for the purpose of these financial statements. The Company’s balance sheet accounts are translated into U.S. dollars at the period-end exchange rates and all revenue and expenses are translated into U.S. dollars at the average exchange rates prevailing during the periods ended September 30, 2020, and June 30, 2020, and September 30, 2019. Translation gains and losses are deferred and accumulated as a component of other comprehensive income in stockholders’ equity. Transaction gains and losses that arise from exchange rate fluctuations from transactions denominated in a currency other than the functional currency are included in the statement of operations as incurred.

ENOCHIAN BIOSCIENCES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

NOTE 1 — SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents —The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company had balances held in financial institutions in Denmark and in the United States in excess of federally insured States amounts at September 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020 of $5,965,661 and $8,696,361, respectively.

 

Property and Equipment — Property and equipment are stated at cost. Expenditures for major renewals and betterments that extend the useful lives of property and equipment are capitalized, upon being placed in service. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Depreciation is computed for financial statement purposes on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which range from four to ten years (See Note 3).

 

Intangible Assets - The Company has both Definite and Indefinite life intangible assets.

 

Definite life intangible assets include patents. The Company accounts for definite life intangible assets in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 350, “Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets”. Intangible assets are recorded at cost. Patent costs consist of costs incurred to acquire the underlying patent. If it is determined that a patent will not be issued, the related remaining capitalized patent costs are charged to expense. Intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful life. The estimated useful life of patents is twenty years from the date of application.

 

Indefinite life intangible assets include license agreements and goodwill. The Company accounts for indefinite life intangible assets in accordance with ASC 350, “Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets”. License agreement costs represent the Fair Value of the license agreement on the date acquired and are tested annually for impairment. The fair value analysis performed on the license agreements, and the fair value analysis performed on goodwill supported that both indefinite life intangible assets are not impaired as of June 30, 2020, and no impairment is deemed necessary as of September 30, 2020. (See Note 4)

 

Goodwill —Goodwill is not amortized but is evaluated for impairment annually as of June 30th or whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable.

 

We test for goodwill impairment at the reporting unit level, which is one level below the operating segment level. Our detailed impairment testing involves comparing the fair value of each reporting unit to its carrying value, including goodwill. Fair value reflects the price a market participant would be willing to pay in a potential sale of the reporting unit and is based on discounted cash flows or relative market-based approaches. If the fair value exceeds carrying value, then it is concluded that no goodwill impairment has occurred. If the carrying value of the reporting unit exceeds its fair value, a second step is required to measure possible goodwill impairment loss. The second step includes hypothetically valuing the tangible and intangible assets and liabilities of the reporting unit as if the reporting unit had been acquired in a business combination. Then, the implied fair value of the reporting unit’s goodwill is compared to the carrying value of that goodwill. If the carrying value of the reporting unit’s goodwill exceeds the implied fair value of the goodwill, we recognize an impairment loss in an amount equal to the excess, not to exceed the carrying value.

 

The carrying value of goodwill at September 30, 2020, was $11,640,000. We do not believe there is a reasonable likelihood that there will be a material change in the future estimates or assumptions we use to test for impairment losses on goodwill. However, if actual results are not consistent with our estimates or assumptions, we may be exposed to an impairment charge that could be material.

NOTE 1 — SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets — Long-lived assets, such as property, plant, and equipment, patents and licenses are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Circumstances which could trigger a review include, but are not limited to: significant decreases in the market price of the asset; significant adverse changes in the business climate or legal factors; current period cash flow or operating losses combined with a history of losses or a forecast of continuing losses associated with the use of the asset; and current expectation that the asset will more likely than not be sold or disposed of significantly before the end of its estimated useful life.

 

Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated undiscounted future cash flows, an impairment charge is recognized by the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset. Assets to be disposed of would be separately presented in the balance sheet and reported at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell and would no longer be depreciated. The depreciable basis of assets that are impaired and continue in use is their respective fair values.

 

Leases — In accordance with ASC Topic 842, the Company determined the initial classification and measurement of its right-of-use assets and lease liabilities at the lease commencement date and thereafter. The lease terms include any renewal options and termination options that the Company is reasonably assured to exercise, if applicable. The present value of lease payments is determined by using the implicit interest rate in the lease, if that rate is readily determinable; otherwise, the Company develops an incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at the commencement date in determining the present value of the future payments.

 

Rent expense for operating leases is recognized on a straight-line basis, unless the operating lease right of use assets have been impaired, over the reasonably assured lease term based on the total lease payments and is included in operating expense in the consolidated statement of operations. For operating leases that reflect impairment, the Company will recognize the amortization of the operating lease right-of-use assets on a straight-line basis over the remaining lease term with rent expense still included in general and administrative expenses in the unaudited condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

The Company has elected the practical expedient to not separate lease and non-lease components. The Company’s non-lease components are primarily related to property maintenance, insurance and taxes, which vary based on future outcomes, and thus are recognized in general and administrative expenses when incurred. (See Note 5).

 

Research and Development Expenses — The Company expenses research and development costs incurred in formulating, improving, validating and creating alternative or modified processes related to and expanding the use of the HIV, HBV, and Cancer therapies and technologies for use in the prevention, treatment, amelioration of and/or therapy for HIV, HBV, and Cancer. Research and development expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, amounted to $1,050,376, and $520,192, respectively.

 

Income Taxes — The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 740 Accounting for Income Taxes, which requires an asset and liability approach for accounting for income taxes. During the quarter ended September 30, 2020, the Company’s Danish subsidiary received a payment for an R&D tax credit owed under Danish statutory tax laws in the amount of $122,831.

 

Loss Per Share — The Company calculates earnings/(loss) per share in accordance with FASB ASC 260 Earnings Per Share. Basic earnings per common share (EPS) are based on the weighted average number of shares of Common Stock, par value 0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”) outstanding during each period. Diluted earnings per common share are based on shares outstanding (computed as under basic EPS) and potentially dilutive shares of Common Stock. Potential shares of Common Stock included in the diluted earnings per share calculation include in-the-money stock options that have been granted but have not been exercised. Because of the net loss for the three ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, the dilutive shares for both periods were excluded from the Diluted EPS calculation as the effect of these potential shares of Common Stock is anti-dilutive. The Company had 4,115,883 and 3,441,375 potential shares of Common Stock excluded from the Diluted EPS calculation as of September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019.

NOTE 1 — SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

  

Fair Value of Financial Instruments — The Company accounts for fair value measurements for financial assets and financial liabilities in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements”. The authoritative guidance, which, among other things, defines fair value, establishes a consistent framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure for each major asset and liability category measured at fair value on either a recurring or nonrecurring basis. Fair value is defined as the exit price, representing the amount that would either be received to sell an asset or be paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. As such, fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. As a basis for considering such assumptions, the guidance establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

  Level 1. Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

 

  Level 2. Inputs, other than the quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and

 

  Level 3. Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.

 

The Company adopted ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820), Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurements, which amends certain disclosures requirements over fair value measurements. Under the new guidance, entities will no longer be required to disclose the amount of and reasons for transfers between Level 1 and Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy or valuation processes for Level 3 fair value measurements. However, public companies will be required to disclose the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements, and related changes in unrealized gains and losses included in other comprehensive income. The Company adopted this guidance on July 1, 2020, and there was no material impact to its condensed consolidated financial statement disclosures (See Note 2-Fair Value of Financial Instruments for more information about the Company’s fair value classifications.)

 

Stock Options and Restricted Share Units - The Company has granted stock options, restricted share units (“RSU’s) and warrants. The Company accounts for options in accordance with the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 718, Compensation - Stock Compensation. Stock based compensation costs for the vesting of options and RSU’s granted to officers, board members, employees and consultants for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 were $326,156 and $234,010, respectively.

 

Stock-Based Compensation -The Company records stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation—Stock Compensation. All transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. Equity instruments issued to employees and the cost of the services received as consideration are measured and recognized based on the fair value of the equity instruments issued and are recognized over the employees required service period, which is generally the vesting period. No shares were issued for services for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019.

 

Recent Adopted Accounting Pronouncements 

 

The Company adopted ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820), Disclosure Framework - Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurements, as of July 1, 2020 (Note 2).

 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB do not or are not believed by management to have a material impact on the Company’s present or future financial statements.

NOTE 2 — FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT — The Company accounts for fair value measurements for financial assets and financial liabilities in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements”. The authoritative guidance, which, among other things, defines fair value, establishes a consistent framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure for each major asset and liability category measured at fair value on either a recurring or nonrecurring basis. Fair value is defined as the exit price, representing the amount that would either be received to sell an asset or be paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. As such, fair value is a market-based measurement that should be determined based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability. As a basis for considering such assumptions, the guidance establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

  Level 1. Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

 

  Level 2. Inputs, other than the quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and

 

  Level 3. Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.

 

The were no Level 1, 2 or 3 assets, nor and Level 1 or 2 liabilities as of September 30, 2020.

 

Level 3 liabilities held as of September 30, 2020 consisted of a contingent consideration liability related to the February 16, 2018 acquisition of Enochian BioPharma (the “Acquisition”). As consideration for the Acquisition, the stockholders of Enochian Biopharma received (i) 18,081,962 shares of Common Stock, and (ii) the right to receive Contingent Shares pro rata upon the exercise of warrants, which were outstanding at closing. The contingent consideration liability was recorded at fair value of $21,516,000 at the time of acquisition and is subsequently remeasured to fair value at each reporting period. At September 30, 2020, 1,438,122 Contingent Shares are issuable in connection with the Acquisition of Enochian Biopharma.

 

The fair value of the contingent consideration liability is estimated using an option-pricing model. The key inputs to the model are all contractual or observable with the exception being volatility, which is computed, based on the Company’s underlying stock. The key inputs to valuing the contingent consideration liability on the date of acquisition and as of September 30, 2020, include the Company’s stock price on the valuation date of $3.58; the exercise price of the warrants of $1.30, the risk-free rate of .13% the expected volatility of the Company’s Common Stock of 99.3%, the digital call rate 54%, and the 1,438,122 of contingent shares remaining at the end of the period. Fair Value measurements are highly sensitive to changes in these inputs and significant changes in these inputs could result in a significantly higher or lower fair value.

 

Unless otherwise disclosed, the fair value of the Company’s financial instruments including cash, accounts receivable, prepaid expenses, investments, accounts payable, accrued expenses, capital lease obligations and notes payable approximates their recorded values due to their short-term maturities.

 

The following table sets forth the Level 3 liability at September 30, 2020, which is recorded on the balance sheet at fair value on a recurring basis. As required, these are classified based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement:

During February 2018, the Company acquired a License Agreement (as licensee) to the HIV therapy being developed as ENOB-HV-01 which consists of a perpetual, fully paid-up, royalty-free, sub-licensable, and sole and exclusive worldwide license to research, develop, use, sell, have sold, make, have made, offer for sale, import and otherwise commercialize certain intellectual property in cellular therapies for the prevention, treatment, amelioration of and/or therapy exclusively for HIV in humans, and research and development exclusively relating to HIV in humans. Because the HIV License Agreement is considered, an IPR&D intangible asset it is classified as an indefinite life asset that is tested annually for impairment.

 

Impairment – Following the fourth quarter of each year, management performs its annual test of impairment of intangible assets by performing a quantitative assessment and determines if it is more than likely than not that, the fair value of the asset is greater than or equal to the carrying value of the asset. The results of the quantitative assessment supported Management’s conclusion that an impairment adjustment was not required as of June 30, 2020.

NOTE 5 — LEASES

 

Operating Leases — On November 13, 2017, Enochian entered into a Lease Agreement for a term of five years and two months from November 1, 2017 (the “Term”) with Plaza Medical Office Building, LLC, a California limited liability company (the “Landlord”), as landlord, pursuant to which the Company agreed to lease from the Landlord approximately 2,325 rentable square feet. The base rent increases by 3% each year, and ranges from approximately $8,719 per month for the first year to $10,107 per month for the two months of the sixth year. The Company received $70,800 in tenant improvement allowance in the form of free rent applied over 10 months in equal installments beginning in January of 2018.

   

On June 19, 2018, the Registrant entered into a Lease Agreement for a term of ten years from September 1, 2018 with Century City Medical Plaza Land Co., Inc., pursuant to which the Company agreed to lease approximately 2,453 rentable square feet. On February 20, 2019, the Registrant entered into an Addendum to the original Lease Agreement with an effective date of December 1, 2019, where it expanded the lease area to include another 1,101 square feet for a total rentable 3,554 square feet. The base rent increases by 3% each year, and ranges from $17,770 per month for the remainder of the first year to $23,186 per month for the tenth year. The equalized monthly lease payment for the term of the lease is $20,050. The Company was entitled to $148,168 in contributions toward tenant improvements.

 

The Company identified and assessed the following significant assumptions in recognizing the right-of-use asset and corresponding liabilities:

 

Expected lease term — The expected lease term includes both contractual lease periods and, when applicable, cancelable option periods when it is reasonably certain that the Company would exercise such options. The Company’s leases have remaining lease terms between 27 months and 83 months. As of September 30, 2020, the weighted-average remaining term is 6.24 years.

 

Incremental borrowing rate — The Company’s lease agreements do not provide an implicit rate. As the Company does not have any external borrowings for comparable terms of its leases, the Company estimated the incremental borrowing rate based on the U.S. Treasury Yield Curve rate that corresponds to the length of each lease. This rate is an estimate of what the Company would have to pay if borrowing on a collateralized basis over a similar term in an amount equal to the lease payments in a similar economic environment. As of September 30, 2020, the weighted-average discount rate is 3.99%.

 

Lease and non-lease components — In certain cases the Company is required to pay for certain additional charges for operating costs, including insurance, maintenance, taxes, and other costs incurred, which are billed based on both usage and as a percentage of the Company’s share of total square footage. The Company determined that these costs are non-lease components and they are not included in the calculation of the lease liabilities because they are variable. Payments for these variable, non-lease components are considered variable lease costs and are recognized in the period in which the costs are incurred.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, and September 30, 2019, lease expense charged to general and administrative expenses amounted to $89,684 and $101,521, respectively.

 

Below are the lease commitments for the next 5 years and thereafter:

 

Year Ending June 30th   Lease Expense  
2021   $ 255,137  
2022   $ 348,495  
2023   $ 298,305  
2024   $ 246,004  
2025   $ 253,384  
Thereafter   $ 574,821  
Less imputed interest     (238,535 )

NOTE 6 — NOTES PAYABLE

 

Convertible Notes Payable

 

On February 6, 2020, the Company issued two Convertible Notes (the “Convertible Notes”) to an existing stockholder of the Company each with a face value amount of $600,000, convertible into shares of the Company’s Common Stock. The outstanding principal amount of the Convertible Notes is due and payable on February 6, 2023. Interest on the Convertible Notes commenced accruing on the date of issuance at six percent (6%) per annum, computed on the basis of twelve 30-day months, and is compounded monthly on the final day of each calendar month based upon the Principal and all accrued and unpaid Interest outstanding as of such compound date. The interest is payable in cash on a semi-annual basis.

 

The holder of the Convertible Notes has the right at any time prior to the date that is twelve months from issuance to convert all or any part of the outstanding and unpaid Principal and all unpaid Interest into shares of the Company’s Common Stock. The conversion price is equal to $12.00 per share of Common Stock. The Company evaluated the Convertible Notes in accordance with ASC 470-20 and identified that they each contain an embedded conversion feature that shall not be bifurcated from the host document (i.e., the Convertible Notes) as they are not deemed to be readily convertible into cash. All proceeds received from the issuance have been recognized as a liability on the balance sheet. The Convertible Notes balance as of September 30, 2020 and June 30, 2020, was $1,200,000.

 

Note Payable

 

On March 30, 2020 (the “Issuance Date”), the Company issued a Promissory Note in the principal amount of $5,000,000 (the “Unsecured Note”) to Paseco APS, a Danish limited company and an existing stockholder of the Company. The principal amount of the Note will be payable on November 30, 2021 (the “Maturity Date”) and bears interest at a fixed rate of 6% per annum, computed based on the number of days between the Issuance Date and the Maturity Date, which was prepaid by the Company in full on the Issuance Date through the issuance of 188,485 shares of the Company’s Common Stock based on the closing market price on that date for a total value of $501,370. The Company evaluated the Unsecured Note and PIK interest in accordance with ASC 470-Debt and ASC 835-Interest, respectively. Pursuant to ASC 470-20, proceeds received from the issuance are to be recognized at their relative fair value, thus the liability is shown net of the corresponding discount of $493,192, which is the relative fair value of the shares issued for the PIK interest on the closing date using the effective interest method. The discount will be accreted over the life of the Unsecured Note. The Note Payable balance, net of discount at September 30, 2020 is $4,654,765.

 

For the three months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded accrued interest and interest expense in the amount of $6,000, and $92,313, respectively. The interest expense includes $73,978 related to the amortization of the discount related to the Unsecured Note. These amounts are reflected in accrued expenses and general and administrative expenses. 

 

NOTE 7 — STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

Preferred Stock — The Company has 10,000,000 authorized shares of Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share. At September 30, 2020, and June 30, 2020, there were zero shares issued and outstanding.

 

Common Stock — The Company has 100,000,000 authorized shares of Common Stock, par value $0.0001 per share. At September 30, 2020, and June 30, 2020, there were 46,636,976 and 46,497,409 shares issued and outstanding, respectively.

 

Voting — Holders of Common Stock are entitled to one vote for each share held of record on each matter submitted to a vote of stockholders, including the election of directors, and do not have any right to cumulate votes in the election of directors.

 

Dividends — Holders of Common Stock are entitled to receive ratably such dividends as the Board from time to time may declare out of funds legally available.

 

Liquidation Rights — In the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of affairs of the Company, after payment of all of our debts and liabilities, the holders of Common Stock will be entitled to share ratably in the distribution of any of our remaining assets.

NOTE 7 — STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY (Continued)

  

Recognition of Options

 

The Company recognizes compensation costs for stock option awards to employees and directors based on their grant-date fair value. The value of each stock option is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model. The weighted-average assumptions used to estimate the fair values of the stock options granted using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model are as follows:

 

    Enochian
Biosciences Inc.
Expected term (in years)   5.5
Volatility   79.92%-80.03%
Risk free interest rate   0.26%-.34%
Dividend yield   0%

 

The Company recognized stock-based compensation expense related to the options of $316,950 and $226,266 for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and year ended 2019, respectively. At September 30, 2020, the Company had approximately $836,754 of unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested options.

 

Plan Options

 

On February 6, 2014, the Board adopted the Company’s 2014 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Plan”), and the Company had reserved 1,206,000 shares of Common Stock for issuance in accordance with the terms of the Plan.

 

On October 30, 2019, the Board approved and on October 31, 2019, the Company’s shareholders adopted the Enochian’s 2019 Equity Incentive Plan (the “2019 Plan”), which replaced the 2014 Plan. The 2019 Plan authorized options to be awarded to not exceed the sum of (1) 6,000,000 new shares of Common Stock, and (2) the number of shares of Common Stock available for the grant of awards as of the effective date under the 2014 Plan that, after the effective date of the 2019 Plan, expires, or is terminated, surrendered, or forfeited for any reason without issuance of shares.

Forward-Looking Statement Notice

 

Certain statements made in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are “forward-looking statements” (within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995) regarding the plans and objectives of management for future operations. Such statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results, performance or achievements of Enochian Biosciences, Inc. formerly DanDrit Biotech USA, Inc. (“Enochian”, and together with its subsidiaries, the “Company”, “we” or “us”) to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements included herein are based on current expectations that involve numerous risks and uncertainties. Our actual future results and trends may differ materially depending on a variety of factors, including, but not limited to, the risks and uncertainties discussed under “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.” The Company’s plans and objectives are based, in part, on assumptions involving the continued expansion of the business. Assumptions relating to the foregoing involve judgments with respect to, among other things, future economic, competitive and market conditions and future business decisions, all of which are difficult or impossible to predict accurately and many of which are beyond the control of the Company. Although the Company believes its assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements are reasonable, any of the assumptions could prove inaccurate and, therefore, there can be no assurance the forward-looking statements included in this Quarterly Report will prove to be accurate. In light of the significant uncertainties inherent in the forward-looking statements included herein, the inclusion of such information should not be regarded as a representation by the Company or any other person that the objectives and plans of the Company will be achieved.

 

Our Business

 

We are a pre-clinical stage biotechnology company committed to using our genetically modified cellular and immune-therapy technologies to prevent or potentially cure HIV, HBV and to potentially provide life-long cancer remission of some of the deadliest cancers. We do this by genetically modifying, or re-engineering, different types of cells, depending on the therapeutic area and then injecting or reinfusing the re-engineered cells back into the patient to provide treatment. In some of our interventions, immunotherapy is used.  

 

To date, our operations have been funded by sales of our securities and the issuance of debt. Sales revenue will not support our current operations, and we expect this to be the case until our therapies or products are approved for marketing in the United States and Europe. Even if we are successful in having our therapies or products approved for sale in the United States and Europe, we cannot guarantee that a market for the product will develop. We may never be profitable. 

 

Human Immunodeficiency Virus, or HIV, and Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome, or AIDS

 

HIV attacks the bodys own immune system, specifically killing off CD4+ cells, or T-cells. Left untreated, HIV reduces the number of T-cells in the body, leading to AIDs, a condition where the body cannot fight off common infections and disease.

 

Currently there are over 30 antiretroviral drugs, or ART, approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) to treat HIV patients but these drugs are expensive, require daily adherence and can have significant side effects over time. In addition, approximately 1 million people, including in high-income countries, continue to die from HIV/AIDS due to resistance to ART or lack of access. Today there are no treatments that can eliminate the reservoir of cells that contain HIV from the body. In other words, treatment is life-long.

 

There have been several efforts to cure HIV by re-engineering a person’s own T-cells so that such cells no longer express C-C chemokine receptor type 5, also known as CCR5, which is an essential co-receptor for HIV to enter T-cells. A mutation that blocks expression of CCR5 on T-cells occurs in a small percentage of people with no known adverse effects. The “Berlin patient”, and more recently the “London patient” are HIV- positive persons who developed cancer and were treated with a bone marrow transplant with cells derived from persons with a naturally occurring deletion of CCR5. The Berlin and London patients seem to be effectively cured from HIV providing a proof of concept that HIV can be cured. However, because the transplanted cells come from another person, such transplants are highly toxic and can result in death in a significant proportion of patients. Given the success with these two patients, several researchers and companies have attempted to replicate the experience of such patients by genetically modifying the T-cells of the HIV-positive patients themselves and reinfusing them with T-cells that do not express CCR5. Because the transplanted cells are from the same person, the risks to the patient are much lower. The uptake, or engraftment of the modified, reinfused cells, however, has not been optimal, leading to a failure to achieve a cure. In addition, the transplant conditioning that has been used is myeloablative chemotherapy, wiping out the patient’s immune system, which has inherent risks and can have long-term side effects including the risk of developing cancer.

ENOB-HV-01 is a novel, proprietary approach with the potential to overcome the failures of recent efforts. The intervention: 1) provides gene-modified, reinfused cells with a competitive advantage over non-modified cells in the HIV-positive person, with the potential to significantly increase engraftment; and 2) avoids the need for myeloablative chemotherapy and, in fact, could potentially be given on an outpatient basis. The Company met with the FDAs INTERACT team on June 2, 2020. INTERACT is the first available FDA interaction and is a key step in the process towards a potential Investigational New Drug (IND) to study First-in-Human products potentially leading to marketing authorization via Biologics License Application (BLA). The FDAs Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) has numerous INTERACT requests and only grants meetings that are deemed appropriate for this early FDA engagement. The Enochian management team considered the meeting to have been successful with strong alignment between Enochian’s approach to developing ENOB-HV-01 and the comments of the FDA reviewers.

 

Initial scientific findings from a mouse study on the ENOB-HV-01 approach were presented at the annual conference of the American Society of Cell and Gene Therapy (ASCGT) in May 2020.

 

We are also developing ENOB-HV-11 and ENOB-HV-12 that will utilize a novel cellular- and immunotherapy approach that could potentially provide for a preventative vaccine and a therapeutic vaccine, respectively. A non-human primate study is in process.

 

We are in the early discovery phase of two additional product candidates related to our HIV pipeline. ENOB-HV-31, which is an in vivo gene therapy, and ENOB-HV-32, which is a peptide drug for packaging and distribution.  

 

Hepatitis B (HBV)   

 

Despite the availability of an effective vaccine, Hepatitis B Virus (HBV) is the worlds most common serious liver infection. It is the leading cause of liver cancer and the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the world. Two billion people have been infected with HBV, approximately 250 million have chronic HBV infection, and nearly one million people die every year.

 

Current efforts to develop novel treatment or cure largely focus on approaches to deplete the pool of a certain type of HBV DNA. Enochian has partnered with Seraph Research Institute to develop an innovative approach to co-opt HBV polymerase to induce the death of liver cells infected with the virus.

 

The initial in vitro and in vivo work was presented at the biannual HEP DART meeting in December of 2019, where it was selected as one of the best new therapies/novel strategies. Additional data was presented at the annual conference of the ASCGT in May

2020.

 

On July 27, 2020, Enochian announced the creation of an HBV Scientific Advisory Board comprised of distinguished leaders in HBV disease, treatment and cure.  

 

Cancer

 

Based on learning from peer-reviewed publications of Phase I/IIa trials, we have designed an innovative therapeutic vaccination platform that could potentially be used to induce life-long remissions from some of the deadliest solid tumors. Initial preclinical in vitro studies have been encouraging. We plan to initially target pancreatic cancer, triple-negative breast cancer, glioblastoma, and renal cell carcinoma. The platform might also allow for non-specific immune enhancement that could have impact against a broad array of solid tumors. As with HIV, our approach would potentially allow for outpatient therapy without ablating or significantly impairing the patient’s immune system, as many current approaches require.

 

Recent Developments

 

On July 8, 2020, we entered into a purchase agreement (the “LPC Purchase Agreement”) with Lincoln Park Capital Fund, LLC, (“LPC”), pursuant to which LPC is committed to purchase, and we have the right, but not the obligation, to sell to LPC up to an aggregate of $20,000,000 of our Common Stock, subject to certain limitations and conditions set forth in the LPC Purchase Agreement, including a limitation on the number of shares of Common Stock we can put to LPC and the pricing parameters for the sales, and we agreed to issue 139,567 shares of our Common Stock as commitment shares. (see Note 7)

 

Corporate History

 

On February 16, 2018, we completed our acquisition of Enochian Biopharma pursuant to an acquisition agreement, dated January 12, 2018, by and among the Registrant, its wholly owned subsidiary DanDrit Acquisition Sub, Inc., Enochian Biopharma and Weird Science with Enochian Biopharma surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Registrant. As consideration for the acquisition, the stockholders of Enochian Biopharma received (i) 18,081,962 shares of Common Stock and (ii) the right to receive Contingent Shares pro rata upon the exercise or conversion of warrants, which were outstanding at closing (See Note 7.)

COVID-19 Outlook

 

During March 2020, a global pandemic was declared by the World Health Organization related to the rapidly growing outbreak of a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19). The pandemic has significantly affected the economic conditions in the U.S. A number of states, counties and municipalities issued orders requiring persons who were not engaged in essential activities and businesses to remain at home. On March 27, 2020, the US enacted the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Aid (“CARES Act”) to help stimulate an economic recovery and additional legislation related to COVID-19 has been proposed; however, there are no reliable estimates of how long the pandemic will last or how many people are likely to be affected by it. No one knows what over-all effects the COVID-19 pandemic will have on economic conditions during the remainder of 2020.

 

Our senior management team is monitoring COVID-19’s impact daily and will continue to adjust our operations as necessary. However, the impact of this event on the Company’s results of operations, financial position, and liquidity or capital resources cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and September 30, 2019 were $1,777,923 and $1,900,812, respectively, representing a decrease of $122,889, or approximately 6.5%. The decrease in general and administrative expenses is an aggregate of individual immaterial variances.

 

Research and development expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019 were $1,050,376 and $520,192, respectively, representing an increase of $530,184 or approximately 102%. The increases in research and development expenses are primarily due to the HBV License Agreement related payments of $833,500, offset by the reduction of $300,000 HIV License Agreement payments paid in 2019 that contractually expired in February 2020. All other R&D costs have remained relatively stable during this period.

 

The Company recorded other income of $339,393 for the three months ended September 30, 2020, compared to other (expense) of ($1,640,692) for the three months ended September 30, 2019, representing an increase of $1,980,085. The increase in other income (expense) is primarily attributable to the change in fair value of the contingent consideration liability related to the Enochian BioPharma Acquisition of $2,369,400, offset by the increase in interest expense of $92,313 related to our notes payables, and the decrease in gain on currency transactions that occurred in the prior year.

 

Net Loss

 

Net loss for the three months ended September 30, 2020, and September 30, 2019, was ($2,396,570) or ($0.05) per share and ($4,083,177) or ($0.09) per share, respectively, representing a decrease in loss of $1,686,607, or approximately 41%. The decrease in loss was primarily due to the increase in fair value of the contingent consideration of $2,369,400, offset by the increase in research and development expenses of $530,184 primarily related to the HBV License Agreement, and the decrease in gain on currency transactions of $286,755 from the prior year, and the tax benefit of $122,794 related to R&D tax credit received by our Danish subsidiary for prior years.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We have historically satisfied our capital and liquidity requirements through funding from shareholders, the issuance of convertible notes and the sale of our Common Stock and warrants. We currently have no sales revenue to support our current operations and we expect this to be the case until our therapies or products are approved for marketing in the United States and Europe. Even if we are successful in having our therapies or products approved for sale in the United States and Europe, we cannot guarantee that a market for the product will develop. We may never be profitable. At this time, we believe we have sufficient liquidity and access to committed funds to fund our operations for the next twelve months.

 

At this time, we believe we have sufficient liquidity and access to committed funds to fund our operations for the next twelve months. We may need additional funds for (a) purchase of equipment and, (b) research and development, specifically to open an Investigational New Drug Application (IND) (The first step in the drug review process by the FDA) for ENOB-HV01, to continue our research and development of ENOB-HV11/12, to fund the HBV License Agreement in furtherance of the Treatment for Hepatitis B, and possible future strategic acquisitions of businesses, products or technologies complementary to our business. If additional funds are required, we may raise such funds from time to time through public or private sales of our equity or debt securities. Such financing may not be available on acceptable terms, or at all, and our failure to raise capital when needed could materially adversely affect our growth plans and our financial condition and results of operations.

The methods, estimates, and judgments that we use in applying our accounting policies have a significant impact on the results that we report in our financial statements.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

 

As a “smaller reporting company” as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Company is not required to provide the information required by this Item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our Principal Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer (the “Certifying Officers”) are responsible for establishing and maintaining disclosure controls and procedures for the Company.  The Certifying Officers have designed such disclosure controls and procedures to ensure that material information is made known to them, particularly during the period in which this Report was prepared.

 

The Certifying Officers are responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the Company used the “Internal Control over Financial Reporting Integrated Framework” issued by Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (“COSO”) to conduct an extensive review of the Company’s “disclosure controls and procedures” (as defined in the Exchange Act, Rules 13a-15(e) and 15-d-15(e)) as of the end of each of the periods covered by this Report (the “Evaluation Date”).  Based upon that evaluation, the Certifying Officers concluded that, as of September 30, 2020, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective in ensuring that the information we were required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms. The deficiencies are attributed to the fact that the Company does not have adequate resources to address complex accounting issues, as well as an inadequate number of persons to whom it can segregate accounting tasks within the Company so as to ensure the segregation of duties between those persons who approve and issue payment from those persons who are responsible to record and reconcile such transactions within the Company’s accounting system.  These control deficiencies will be monitored and attention will be given to the matter as we continue to accelerate through our current growth stage.

 

The Certifying Officers based their conclusion on the fact that the Company has identified material weaknesses in controls over financial reporting, detailed below.  In order to reduce the impact of these weaknesses to an acceptable level, the Company has contracted with consultants with expertise in U.S. GAAP and SEC financial reporting standards to review and compile all financial information prior to filing that information with the SEC.  However, even with the added expertise of these consultants, we still expect to be deficient in our internal controls over disclosure and procedures until sufficient capital is available to hire the appropriate internal accounting staff and individuals with requisite GAAP and SEC financial reporting knowledge.  There have been no significant changes in internal controls or in other factors that could significantly affect internal controls subsequent to the date of their evaluation, including any corrective actions with regard to significant deficiencies and material weaknesses.

 

Changes in Internal Controls

 

There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting during the three ended September 30, 2020 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal controls.
