Note 2 – Liquidity and Management Plans
During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company recorded revenue of $201,364 and $531,389, respectively, and during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded $61,500 and $237,350, respectively. During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company recorded net losses of $12,464,526 and $32,006,118, respectively, and during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recorded net losses of $7,556,837 and $24,359,239, respectively. Net cash used in operating activities was $22,498,803 and $19,435,940 for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The Company is currently meeting its liquidity requirements through the proceeds of securities offerings that raised net proceeds of $53,556,202 during 2020, an at-the-market (“ATM”) offering during October 2021 (see Note 9 – Subsequent Events), proceeds from contributions to the employee stock purchase plan (“ESPP”), along with payments received from customers.
As of September 30, 2021, the Company had cash on hand of $28,282,188. The Company expects that cash on hand as of September 30, 2021, together with anticipated revenues and with ATM financing during October 2021, will be sufficient to fund the Company’s operations into November 2022.
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, the development of complementary technologies, 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.
