Note 2 Liquidity and Management Plans
During the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company has recorded revenue of $1,451,941. The Company incurred a net loss of $45,817,394, 27,561,702 and $45,603,110 for the years ended December 31, 2016, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Net cash used in operating activities was $33,062,247, 20,005,734 and $15,606,423 for the years ended December 31, 2016, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The Company is currently meeting its liquidity requirements principally through sales of shares to three different private investors during August 2016, November 2016 and December 2016, raising net proceeds of $34,788,311, and payments received under product development projects entered into with a tier one customer.
As of December 31, 2016, the Company had cash on hand of $31,258,637. The Company expects that cash on hand as of December 31, 2016, together with anticipated revenues, will be sufficient to fund the Company’s operations into the second quarter of 2018.
Research and development of new technologies is, by its nature, unpredictable. Although the Company will undertake development efforts with commercially reasonable diligence, there can be no assurance that its available resources including the net proceeds from the Company’s IPO, secondary offering, shelf registration, and strategic investor financing will be sufficient to enable it to develop and obtain regulatory approval of its technology to the extent needed to create future revenues sufficient to sustain its operations. The Company may choose to pursue additional financing, depending upon the market conditions, which could include follow-on equity offerings, debt financing, co-development agreements or other alternatives. Should the Company choose to pursue additional financing, there is no assurance that the Company would be able to do so on terms that it would find acceptable.
