Note 2 – Liquidity and Management Plans
During the year ended December 31, 2018, the Company has recorded revenue of $514,823. The Company incurred a net loss of $50,840,122 and $49,376,875 for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. Net cash used in operating activities was $32,527,023 and $34,430,298 for the years ended December 31, 2018 and 2017, respectively. The Company is currently meeting its liquidity requirements through an at-the-market (“ATM”) sale of common stock in January 2018, which raised net proceeds of $38,846,815, and payments received under product development projects.
As of December 31, 2018, the Company had cash on hand of $20,106,485. The Company expects that cash on hand as of December 31, 2018, together with anticipated revenues, together with potential new financing activities, including potential sales of stock, will be sufficient to fund the Company’s operations into the first quarter of 2020. As noted in Note 13 – Subsequent Events, the Company has a firm commitment to raise $23.3 million (net of underwriters’ discount of $1.5 million and offering expenses of $200,000) from the sale of stock in February 2019.
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 financings to date, 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 intends to pursue additional financing, which could include follow-on offerings of equity or debt securities, bank financings, commercial agreements with customers or strategic partners, and other alternatives., depending upon market conditions. Should the Company choose to pursue additional financing, there is no assurance that such financing would be available on terms that it would find acceptable, or at all.
The market for products using the Company’s technology is broad, but is nascent and unproven, so the Company’s success is sensitive to many factors, including technological feasibility, regulatory approval, customer acceptance, competition and global market fluctuations.
