Note 2 – Liquidity and Management Plans
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded revenue of $61,500 and $237,350, respectively, and during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company recorded revenue of $40,500 and $154,500, respectively. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded net losses of $7,556,837 and $24,359,239, respectively, and during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Company recorded net losses of $8,184,227 and $29,007,691, respectively. Net cash used in operating activities was $19,435,940 and $20,968,817 for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The Company is currently meeting its liquidity requirements through the proceeds of securities offerings that raised net proceeds of $23,319,156 in March 2019, $4,557,693 during the fourth quarter 2019, $5,506,880 during the first quarter 2020 and $9,216,611 during the second quarter 2020, along with payments received from customers.
As of September 30, 2020, the Company had cash on hand of $17,303,234. The Company expects that cash on hand as of September 30, 2020, together with anticipated revenues and funds raised from the at-the-market (“ATM”) finance offering (see Note 9 – Subsequent Events) will be sufficient to fund the Company’s operations into November 2021.
Research and development of new technologies is by its nature unpredictable. Although the Company intends to continue its research and development activities, there can be no assurance that its available resources and revenue generated from its business operations will be sufficient to sustain its operations. Accordingly, the Company expects to pursue additional financing, which could include offerings of equity or debt securities, bank financings, commercial agreements with customers or strategic partners, and other alternatives, depending upon market conditions. There is no assurance that such financing would be available on terms that the Company would find acceptable, or at all.
The market for products using the Company’s technology is broad and evolving, but remains nascent and unproven, so the Company’s success is dependent upon many factors, including customer acceptance of its existing products, technical feasibility of future products, regulatory approvals, competition and global market fluctuations.
In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the outbreak of a novel coronavirus (COVID-19) as a pandemic. The pandemic continues to affect the United States and the world. The Company is monitoring the ongoing effects of COVID-19 (including continued outbreaks) and the related business and travel restrictions and changes to behavior intended to reduce its spread, and COVID-19’s impact on the Company’s operations, financial position, cash flows, inventory, supply chains, global regulatory approvals, purchasing trends, customer payments, and the industry in general, in addition to the impact on its employees. Due to the continuing developments and fluidity of this situation, the magnitude and duration of the pandemic and its impact on the Company's operations and liquidity are still uncertain as of the date of this report.
