PAVMED INC. (f/k/a PAXMED INC.) AND SUBSIDIARY

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

September 30, 2016

 

Note 1 — The Company and Basis of Presentation

 

PAVmed Inc. (“PAVmed” or the “Company”) was organized under the laws of the State of Delaware on June 26, 2014 originally under the name of PAXmed Inc. On April 19, 2015, the Company changed its name to PAVmed Inc. The Company operates in one segment as a medical device company organized to advance a broad pipeline of innovative medical technologies from concept to commercialization using a business model focused on capital and time efficiency.

 

Initial Public Offering

 

On April 28, 2016, under a registration statement on Form S-1 declared effective January 29, 2016, the Company’s initial public offering (IPO) was consummated with the issuance of 1,060,000 units at an offering price of $5.00 per unit, with each unit consisting of one share of common stock and one warrant. The IPO resulted in gross cash proceeds of $5.3 million and $4.2 million of net cash proceeds, after deducting cash selling agent discounts and commissions and offering expenses. The warrants issued in the IPO became exercisable on October 28, 2016 and expire on January 29, 2022 or earlier upon redemption by the Company under certain conditions (see Note 9, Stockholders Equity). Each warrant has an exercise price of $5.00. Upon consummation of the IPO, the Company’s 9,560,295 previously outstanding warrants converted into identical warrants issued in the IPO.

 

In connection with the consummation of the IPO, the units were approved for listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market (“Nasdaq”)under the symbol “PAVMU”. Subsequently, the common stock and warrants comprising the units began separate trading on Nasdaq on July 27, 2016 under the symbols “PAVM” and “PAVMW”, respectively, and the unit and symbol PAVMU ceased to be quoted and traded on Nasdaq.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regarding interim financial reporting. As permitted under those rules, certain footnotes or other financial information normally required by U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted, and accordingly the balance sheet as of December 31, 2015 has been derived from audited consolidated financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. These condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the Company’s annual financial statements and in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial information. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related financial information should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and related notes thereto as of and for the year ended December 31, 2015 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC.

 

The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2016 or for any other interim period or for any other future year.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

September 30, 2016

 

Note 1 — The Company and Basis of Presentation (continued)

 

Liquidity and Going Concern

 

The Company is an early stage and emerging growth company and, as such, the Company is subject to all of the risks associated with early stage and emerging growth companies.

 

The Company’s ability to continue to meet its obligations and to achieve its business objectives is dependent upon, among other things, raising sufficient additional capital, obtaining regulatory clearance for its products, commercializing its products, generating sufficient revenue, and its ability to continue to control expenses, to meet its obligations as they become due for the foreseeable future. A failure to raise sufficient capital, obtain regulatory clearance for its products, commercialize its products, or manage expenditures, among other factors, may adversely impact the Company’s ability to achieve its intended business objectives and raise substantial doubt of the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Since inception, the Company has incurred losses and negative cash flows from operating activities. During the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2016, the Company incurred net losses of $1,928,722 and $3,940,337, respectively, and had net cash used in operating activities of $3,251,887 for the nine months ended September 30, 2016. At September 30, 2016, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $5,991,321, working capital of $1,124,232, and cash of $1,788,650. The Company anticipates incurring losses for the next several years as it completes the development of its products and seeks requested regulatory clearances to market such products.

 

The Company does not expect to experience positive cash flows in the near future. To date, the Company has financed its operations with $2.1 million of net proceeds from private placements of equity securities and $4.2 million of net cash proceeds from its IPO. The Company estimates its existing cash-on-hand, absent any additional sources of cash, is sufficient to fund its operations into early 2017. Accordingly, the Company will need to raise additional funds to support its operating and capital needs beyond early 2017. The Company has engaged financial advisory firms to assist with its financing efforts, however, there is no assurance the financial advisory firms will be successful in these efforts.

 

The Company may seek to issue additional equity and /or incur indebtedness. The issuance of additional equity and /or debt securities by the Company may result in additional dilution to its stockholders. If the additional funds result from the issue of debt securities and /or preferred stock, these securities could have rights senior to those of the Company’s common stock and could contain covenants which may restrict the Company’s operations. The Company may also seek funding through collaborations or other similar arrangements with third parties, including larger medical device companies. However, the Company may not be able to secure such financing in a timely manner or on terms it deems favorable, if at all. If the Company is unable to raise sufficient additional capital funding, it may need to substantially curtail its planned operations.

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the assumption the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The Company depends upon its ability, and will continue to attempt, to secure additional equity and /or debt financing, however, the Company may not be successful in these efforts, and without sufficient capital funding, there is substantial doubt of the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities resulting from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Stock Split Effected in the Form of a Stock Dividend

 

On September 21, 2015, the Company’s Board of Directors declared a 2.7872582-for-1 stock split to be effected in the form of a stock dividend. All basic and diluted earnings per share, average shares outstanding information and all applicable footnotes have been adjusted for the stock split. The number of authorized shares of common stock and preferred stock were not affected by the stock split and remain at 50,000,000 shares and 20,000,000 shares, respectively.

PAVMED INC. (f/k/a PAXMED INC.) and SUBSIDIARY

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

SEPTEMBER 30, 2016

 

Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Significant Accounting Policies

 

The Company’s significant accounting policies are described in Note 2 of the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2015. Since the date of those financial statements, there have been no changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies, other than the adoption of a policy for equipment and stock-based compensation, including the early adoption of Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) 2016-09 for stock based compensation as noted below.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Basis of Consolidation

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated interim financial statements include the accounts of PAVmed and its wholly-owned subsidiary. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Equipment

 

Equipment is stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets. Maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred. Upon sale or retirement of assets, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the balance sheet and resulting gain or loss, if any, is included in the consolidated statement of operations. The useful lives of equipment are as follows: research and development equipment is five years and computer equipment is three years.

 

Stock-Based Compensation

 

The Company issues stock-based awards to employees, members of its board of directors, and non-employees. Stock-based awards to employees are accounted for in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 718, Stock Compensation, and stock based awards to non-employees are accounted for in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 505-50, Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees. ASC 718 requires all stock-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options and modifications to existing stock options, to be recognized in the statements of operations based on their fair values. ASC Topic 505-50 requires the fair value of the award to be remeasured at fair value as the award vests. In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Compensation — Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting, (“ASU 2016-09”) which simplified several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the income tax consequences, classification of awards as either equity or liabilities, and classification on the statement of cash flows. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2017, although early adoption is permitted. The Company elected to early adopt ASU 2016-09 effective as of April 1, 2016. As the Company did not have any stock options issued or outstanding prior to the closing of its IPO, the early adoption did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company evaluates its long-lived assets, including equipment, for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of these assets may not be recoverable. Recoverability of these assets is measured by comparison of the carrying amount of each asset to the future undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use of the asset and its eventual disposition. If the asset is considered impaired, the amount of any impairment is measured as the difference between the carrying value and the fair value of the impaired assets. The Company has not recorded impairment of any long-lived assets in the periods presented.

Note 2 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

 

Reclassification

 

Certain previously reported amounts have been reclassified to conform to the presentation used in the condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) and subsequently issued additional updates amending the guidance contained in Topic 606 thereby affecting the guidance contained in ASU 2014-09. ASU 2014-09 and the subsequent Topic 606 updates will supersede and replace nearly all existing U.S. GAAP revenue recognition guidance. The core principle of ASU 2014-09 is to recognize revenue when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount equal to the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled for those goods and services. ASU 2014-09 defines a five step process to achieve this core principle, and in doing so, more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than are required under existing U.S. GAAP. The standard is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods therein, using either of the following transition methods: (i) a full retrospective approach reflecting the application of the standard in each prior reporting period with the option to elect certain practical expedients, or (ii) a retrospective approach with the cumulative effect of initially adopting the standard recognized at the date of adoption (which includes additional footnote disclosures). The Company is evaluating the guidance in ASU 2014-09 and the subsequent Topic 606 updates and has not yet determined what, if any, effect this guidance will have on its results of operations or financial condition.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, which amended the guidance of FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic 230, Statement of Cash Flows (ASC 230) on the classification of certain cash receipts and payments. The primary purpose of ASU 2016-15 is to reduce the diversity in practice which has resulted from a lack of consistent principles on this topic. The amendments of ASU 2016-15 add or clarify guidance on eight specific cash flow issues, including debt prepayment or debt extinguishment costs, settlement of zero-coupon debt instruments, contingent consideration payments made after a business combination, proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims, proceeds from the settlement of corporate-owned life insurance policies, distributions received from equity method investees, beneficial interests in securitization transactions, and separately identifiable cash flows and application of the predominance principle. The guidance of ASU 2016-15 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is evaluating the impact of this guidance on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing (“ASU 2016-10”). The amendments in ASU 2016-10 clarify the following two aspects of Topic 606: (a) identifying performance obligations; and (b) the licensing implementation guidance. The amendments do not change the core principle of the guidance in Topic 606. The effective date and transition requirements for the amendments are the same as the effective date and transition requirements in Topic 606: The guidance is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2018, although early adoption is permitted beginning January 1, 2017. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this guidance on its consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations (“ASU 2016-08”). The amendments are intended to improve the operability and understandability of the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations by amending certain existing illustrative examples and adding additional illustrative examples to assist in the application of the guidance. The effective date and transition requirements for the amendments are the same as the effective date and transition requirements in Topic 606: The guidance is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2018, although early adoption is permitted beginning January 1, 2017. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this guidance on its consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (“ASU 2016-02”), which establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model requiring a lessee to recognize a ROU asset and a lease liability for all leases with terms greater-than 12 months. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods with those fiscal years. A modified retrospective transition approach is required for leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements, with certain practical expedients available. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this guidance on its consolidated financial position, results of operations, and cash flows.

 

JOBS Act Accounting Election

 

The Company is an “emerging growth company,” as defined in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”). Under the JOBS Act, emerging growth companies can delay adopting new or revised accounting standards issued subsequent to the enactment of the JOBS Act until such time as those standards apply to private companies. The Company has irrevocably elected to avail itself of this exemption from new or revised accounting standards, and, therefore, will not be subject to the same new or revised accounting standards as public companies that are not emerging growth companies.

Note 6 — Income Taxes

 

In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, the Company recognized a deferred tax benefit which was fully offset by a corresponding valuation allowance. The Company has evaluated the positive and negative evidence bearing upon the realizability of its deferred tax assets. Based on the Company’s history of operating losses, the Company has concluded it is more-likely-than-not the benefit of its deferred tax assets will not be realized. Accordingly, the Company has provided a full valuation allowance for deferred tax assets as of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.

IPO Units

 

At April 28, 2016, the Company estimated the fair value of its common stock using the guideline transaction method of the market approach. The Company calculated the revenue multiples implied by recent IPOs of comparable companies over the past three years. This resulted in a median projected revenue multiple of 3.55x. Since the Company was not revenue producing as of its IPO date, projected revenues were developed for the years 2017 through 2020 based on market assumptions for the Company’s products and these revenues were then discounted using a discount rate in line with the Company’s cost of capital. The Company then applied the revenue multiple to the average of its discounted revenues to determine its total equity value and divided the total equity value by the number of common shares outstanding immediately prior to the IPO to arrive at an estimated fair value of common stock of $3.50.

 

Warrants

 

At September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company had warrants outstanding to purchase 10,620,295 and 9,560,295 shares, respectively. The outstanding 9,560,295 warrants as of December 31, 2015 automatically converted into warrants having the same terms and conditions as the 1,060,000 warrants issued in the Company’s IPO on April 28, 2016, including a $5.00 per share warrant exercise price and a warrant term of six (6) years.

 

Commencing April 28, 2017, the Company may redeem the outstanding warrants (other than those outstanding prior to the IPO held by the Company’s management, founders, and members thereof, but including the warrants held by the initial investors), at the Company’s option, in whole or in part, at a price of $0.01 per warrant:

 

*at any time while the warrants are exercisable;

 

*upon a minimum of 30 days’ prior written notice of redemption;

 

*if, and only if, the volume weighted average price of the Company’s common stock equals or exceeds $10.00 (subject-to adjustment) for any 20 consecutive trading days ending three business days before the Company issues its notice of redemption, and provided the average daily trading volume in the stock is at least 20,000 shares per day; and,

 

*if, and only if, there is a current registration statement in effect with respect to the shares of common stock underlying such warrants.

 

The right to exercise will be forfeited unless the warrants are exercised prior to the date specified in the notice of redemption. On and after the redemption date, a record holder of a warrant will have no further rights except to receive the redemption price for such holder’s warrant upon surrender of such warrant.

 

On October 28, 2016, the Company filed a Registration Statement on Form S-1 to register the issuance of the 1,060,000 shares of the Company’s common stock upon the exercise of the 1,060,000 warrants issued in the Company’s IPO. As of the date of this filing on Form 10Q, the Registration Statement has not yet been declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Unit Purchase Options

 

On April 28, 2016, the Company issued unit purchase options to the selling agents in the Company’s IPO. The unit purchase options provide for the purchase of 53,000 units at an exercise price of $5.50 per unit. Each unit covered by the unit purchase options is identical to the units sold in the Company’s IPO and consists of one share of common stock and one warrant to purchase a share of common stock at $5.00 per share. The Company estimated the fair value of the unit purchase options issued to the selling agents was approximately $105,100, which was accounted for as offering costs of the Company’s IPO. The fair value of the unit purchase options was determined using a Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: fair value of the underlying unit of $5.00, dividend yield of 0.00%, expected volatility of 50%, risk free rate of 1.28% and remaining contractual term of 4.6 years. The valuation assumptions for the unit purchase options were determined as follows:

 

Expected dividend yield: The estimate for annual dividends is $0.00 as the Company has not historically paid, and does not expect for the foreseeable future to pay, a dividend.

 

Expected stock price volatility: The expected volatility is based on historical stock price volatilities of similar entities within the Company’s industry over the period commensurate with the expected term of the unit purchase options.

 

Risk-free interest rate: The Company based the risk-free interest rate on the interest rate payable on U.S. Treasury securities in effect at the time of grant for a period commensurate with the assumed expected unit purchase options term.

 

Expected term of the unit purchase options: The expected term of the unit purchase options represents the period of time the unit purchase options are expected to be outstanding, which is their contractual term.

Note 10 — Stock Based Compensation

 

In November 2014, the Company’s Board of Directors and stockholders adopted the 2014 Long-Term Incentive Equity Plan (“the Stock Plan”). The Stock Plan is designed to enable the Company to offer employees, officers, directors and consultants, as defined, an opportunity to acquire a proprietary interest in the Company. The Stock Plan reserves 1,951,081 shares of common stock for issuance in accordance with the Stock Plan’s terms.

 

All of the Company’s officers, directors, employees, and consultants, as well as those of its subsidiaries, are eligible to be granted awards under the Stock Plan. The types of awards that may be granted under the Stock Plan include stock options, stock appreciation rights, restricted stock, and other stock-based awards subject to limitations under applicable law. All awards are subject to approval by the Company’s Board of Directors.

 

On April 28, 2016, upon the closing of the Company’s IPO, a total of 1,588,313 stock options were granted, including 961,178 to management, 487,770 to members of the board of directors, and 139,365 to members of the Company’s medical advisory board. The stock options have a ten (10) year contractual term from date of grant, have an exercise price of $5.00 per share, and vest 3/36 on the third month after the grant date and 1/36 on each successive month thereafter for the following 33 months. In November 2016, the Company granted 25,000 stock options to a new member of the Company’s medical advisory board, with a ten (10) year contractual term from the date of grant, an exercise price of $10.50 per share, and vesting ratably on a quarterly basis over a three year period commencing December 31, 2016.

 

The cost of stock-based compensation awards granted to employees and directors are determined based on the grant-date fair value for stock options granted to employees and members of the board of directors and the vesting date fair value for stock options granted to non-employee members of the medical advisory board, with the cost recognized over the award’s service period. Stock-based compensation expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 was recognized as follows:

Note 10 — Stock Based Compensation (continued)

 

At September 30, 2016, there were 362,768 shares of common stock available for grant under the Plan. The following table summarizes information about stock options for the periods presented below:

 

       Weighted     
   Number   Average   Aggregate 
   Stock   Exercise   Intrinsic 
   Options   Price   Value 
Outstanding at December 31, 2014      $      
Granted   1,588,313   $5.00      
Exercised      $      
Forfeited      $      
Outstanding at September 30, 2016   1,588,313   $5.00   $14,294,817 
Vested and exercisable at September 30, 2016   220,599   $5.00   $1,985,391 
Vested or expected to vest at September 30, 2016   1,588,313   $5.00      

 

The aggregate intrinsic value is computed as the difference between the exercise price of the underlying stock options and the quoted price of the common stock on September 30, 2016, to the extent the exercise price is less than the quoted price.

 

The weighted average remaining contractual term of stock options outstanding was 9.6 years at September 30, 2016. The weighted average remaining contractual term of stock options vested and exercisable was 9.6 years at September 30, 2016.

 

The Company uses the Black-Scholes valuation model to estimate the fair value of stock options. The Black-Scholes valuation model requires the Company to make certain estimates and assumptions, including assumptions related to the expected price volatility of the Company’s stock, the period during which the options will be outstanding, the rate of return on risk- free investments, and the expected dividend yield for the Company’s stock.

 

Stock options issued to employees:

 

The grant date fair values of stock options granted to employees and members of the board of directors was $1.32, calculated using the following Black-Scholes valuation model assumptions:

 

  

Nine Months Ended

September 30,

 
   2016   2015 
Risk-free interest rate   1.40%   %
Expected term of options (in years)   5.8     
Expected stock price volatility   50%   %
Expected dividend yield   0%   %

 

Stock options issued to non-employees:

 

The weighted average fair value of stock options granted to non-employees at was $10.43 as of September 30, 2016, with such fair value calculated using the following Black-Scholes valuation model assumptions:

 

   Nine Months Ended 
   September 30, 
   2016   2015 
Risk-free interest rate   1.49% - 1.55%   %

Note 10 — Stock Based Compensation (continued)

 

The weighted-average valuation assumptions for all stock-based awards were determined as follows:

 

Weighted-average risk-free interest rate: The Company bases the risk-free interest rate on the interest rate payable on U.S. Treasury securities in effect at the time of grant for a period that is commensurate with the assumed expected option term.

 

Expected term of options: The expected term of stock options represents the period of time options are expected to be outstanding, which for employees is the expected term derived using the simplified method and for non-employees is the contractual term.

 

Expected stock price volatility: The expected volatility is based on historical stock price volatilities of similar entities within the Company’s industry over the period commensurate with the expected term of the option.

 

Expected dividend yield: The estimate for annual dividends is $0.00 as the Company has not historically paid, and does not expect for the foreseeable future to pay, a dividend.

 

At September 30, 2016 there was $3,007,376 of total unrecognized compensation cost related to stock options, which is expected to be recognized over the next 2.6 years (which represents the weighted average remaining requisite service periods for such awards).

Note 11 —Loss Per Share

 

Basic loss per share is calculated by dividing the loss by the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period, without consideration for potential dilutive common shares. Since the Company was in a loss position for all periods presented, basic net loss per share is the same as diluted net loss per share as the inclusion of all potential dilutive common shares would have been anti-dilutive.

 

The following table sets forth the comparison of basic and fully diluted net loss per share for the periods indicated:

 

  

Three Months Ended

Nine Months Ended

Overview

 

We are a highly-differentiated multi-product medical device company organized to advance a broad pipeline of innovative medical technologies from concept to commercialization. We employ a business model focused on capital efficiency and speed to market. Since our inception on June 26, 2014, our activities have focused on advancing the lead products in our pipeline towards commercialization while protecting our intellectual property, expanding our management team, Board of Directors and Medical Advisory Board, raising initial working capital through two private placements and consummating our initial public offering in April 2016.

 

With regard to the five lead products in our pipeline — PortIO, CarpX, NextCath, Caldus and NextFlo:

 

we have filed initial final provisional patent applications for PortIO, Caldus, CarpX and NextFlo and acquired two patents and related patent applications for NextFlo; we have also filed additional patent applications encompassing improvements to the intellectual property resulting from ongoing design and development work on these products;

 

in collaboration with our contracted design, engineering and manufacturing partners, we have completed the final commercial design of our PortIO implantable intraosseous vascular access device and are in the midst of formal verification and validation testing prior to FDA submission targeted to be completed by the end of 2016; in collaboration with members of our medical advisory board we are developing a clinical and commercialization strategy for PortIO in anticipation of FDA clearance which includes both short-term and long-term applications;

 

in collaboration with our contracted design, engineering and manufacturing partners, we have completed the design of the CarpX balloon catheter and used it to successfully divide the transverse carpal ligament in a cadaver model utilizing a completely percutaneous approach; we have completed the final design of the full commercial embodiment of the CarpX device including the handle and associated electronics; we anticipate initiating formal verification and validation testing of the device before the end of 2016 and FDA submission in 2017;

 

we have selected interventional radiology catheters (pleural, peritoneal, abscess, nephrostomy, etc.) as the first commercial target for our NextCath self-anchoring short-term catheter platform technology; in collaboration with our contracted design, engineering and manufacturing partners we have finalized the design of the catheter and have initiated retention force testing in an animal model; we anticipate initiating pre-submission verification and validation testing of the initial NextCath device before the end of 2016 and FDA submission in 2017; we continue to explore the utilization of our NextCath platform technology in other short-term catheters including central venous catheters, peripherally-inserted central catheters (PICCs), gastrointestinal catheters and peripheral intravenous catheters;

 

we have selected three initial applications for our Caldus disposable tissue ablation platform technology – endovenous ablation of varicose veins, endoluminal ablation of fistula-in-ano and renal denervation for the treatment of hypertension; in collaboration with our design, engineering and manufacturing partners we have completed proof of principle testing demonstrating that we can deliver temperatures of >90C to a balloon catheter for at least 20 minutes of ablation time and histologically confirmed tissue necrosis in a wide variety of tissues and organs in a pig model; we are currently optimizing the design of the renal denervation balloon and catheter and enhancing the design of the infusion device to higher specifications including temperatures up to 140C and significantly higher flow rates; we anticipate initiating animal testing for the initial three applications in the near future and verification and validation testing of the varicose vein and fistula-in-ano applications in early 2017;

 

we continue to optimize the design and advance the underlying intellectual property for our NextFlo product; we have broadened the scope of the project to include our proprietary highly-accurate variable flow resistor design not only in disposable infusion pumps but also in a proprietary infusion administration set which can deliver a specified flow rate using gravity alone, without the need for an electronic infusion pump;

 

we remain actively engaged with our full-service regulatory consulting partner who is working closely with our contracted design, engineering and manufacturing partners as our products advance towards regulatory submission, clearance and commercialization;

Table of Contents   

 

we are evaluating a number of product opportunities and intellectual property covering a spectrum of clinical conditions, which have been presented to us by clinician innovators and academic medical centers, for consideration of a partnership to develop and commercialize these products; we are also exploring opportunities to partner with larger medical device companies to commercialize our lead products as they move towards regulatory clearance and commercialization; and

 

we continue to advance additional internal conceptual phase projects in clinical areas including delivery of tumescent local anesthesia, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), sleep apnea and endotracheal intubation; and will accelerate their development commensurate with available capital and other resources.

 

We have never been profitable and have incurred net losses since inception. Our net loss was $1,928,722 and $3,940,337 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, respectively. This compares to a net loss for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2015 of $538,903 and $1,045,848, respectively. Our net loss for all periods presented resulted from costs incurred in connection with our formation and operating costs related to establishing and advancing our operations and our research and development programs discussed herein. In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016, we incurred $1,350,248 and $2,827,721 of formation and operating costs, respectively and $578,474 and $1,112,616 of research and development costs, respectively. In the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, we incurred $274,371 and $697,866 of formation and operating costs, respectively, and $264,532 and $347,982 of research and development costs, respectively.

 

We expect to incur losses for the foreseeable future, and we expect these losses to increase as we continue our development of, and seek regulatory clearances for, our products, hire additional personnel, and initiate commercialization of any approved products. Because of the numerous risks and uncertainties associated with product development, we are unable to predict the timing or amount of increased expenses or when, or if, we will be able to achieve or maintain profitability. Even if we are able to generate revenues from the sale of any commercial products, we may not become profitable. If we fail to become profitable, or are unable to sustain profitability on a continuing basis, then we may be unable to continue our operations at planned levels and be forced to reduce our operations.

 

Since June 26, 2014 (inception), we have financed our operations principally through an aggregate of $6.3 million of equity financing resulting from private offerings of our common stock and warrants and our IPO on April 28, 2016, including a total of $2.1 million of net proceeds through private offerings of our equity prior to our IPO, and approximately $4.2 million of net cash proceeds resulting from our IPO.

 

Our ability to continue to meet our financial obligations and to achieve our business objectives is dependent upon, among other things, raising sufficient additional capital, obtaining regulatory clearance for our products, commercializing our products, generating sufficient revenue and our ability to continue to control expenses, to meet our obligations as they become due for the foreseeable future. Failure by us to raise sufficient capital, obtain regulatory clearance for our products, commercialize our products, or manage our expenditures, among other factors, may adversely impact our ability to achieve our intended business objectives and raise substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the assumption we will continue to be a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. We depend upon our ability, and will continue to attempt, to secure additional equity and /or debt financing. We may not be successful, and without sufficient capital funding, there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities resulting from the outcome of this uncertainty. See Liquidity and Capital Resources for additional information regarding our capital funding requirements.

Recent Developments

 

On April 28, 2016, we consummated our IPO with the issuance of 1,060,000 units, with each unit consisting of one share of common stock and one warrant. The units were sold at an offering price of $5.00 per unit, generating gross cash proceeds of $5.3 million and net cash proceeds of approximately $4.2 million, after deducting cash selling agent discounts and commissions and other IPO offering expenses. In connection with the consummation of the IPO, the units were approved for listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market, or Nasdaq, under the symbol “PAVMU”. The common stock and warrants comprising the units began separate trading on July 27, 2016 under the symbols “PAVM” and “PAVMW”, respectively, and the unit and symbol PAVMU ceased being quoted and traded on Nasdaq.

 

On October 28, 2016, the Company filed a Registration Statement on Form S-1 to register the issuance of 1,060,000 shares of the Company’s common stock upon the exercise of 1,060,000 warrants issued in the Company’s IPO. As of the date of this filing on Form 10Q, the Registration Statement has not yet been declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

On November 2, 2016, we executed a Patent License Agreement (the “License Agreement”) with Tufts University and its co-owners, the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary and Massachusetts General Hospital (the Licensors”). Pursuant to the License Agreement, the Licensors granted us the exclusive right and license to certain patents owned or controlled by the Licensors in connection with the development and commercialization of antibiotic-eluting resorbable ear tubes on a proprietary aqueous silk technology. Upon execution of the License Agreement, we paid the Licensors an up-front non-refundable license fee of $20,000 as well as a payment of $30,000 as reimbursement of patent costs previously incurred by the Licensors. The License Agreement also provides for payments by us to the Licensors upon the achievement of certain product development and regulatory clearance milestones as well as royalty payments on net sales upon the commercialization of products developed utilizing the licensed patents.

Financial Results of Operations

 

Revenue

 

To date, we have not generated any revenues from product sales. Our ability to generate product revenue and become profitable depends upon our ability to successfully develop and commercialize our products.

 

Formation and operating costs

 

Formation and operating costs consist primarily of salaries and related costs for personnel, including travel expenses, for our employees in executive and research and development functions. Other formation and operating costs include facility-related costs, professional fees, accounting and legal services, consultants and expenses associated with obtaining and maintaining patents within our intellectual property portfolio.

 

We anticipate our formation and operating costs will increase in the future as we increase our headcount to support our continued research and development and the potential commercialization of our products. We also anticipate increased expenses related to being a public company, including audit, legal, regulatory and tax-related services associated with maintaining compliance as a public company, director and officer insurance premiums and investor relations costs. Additionally, prior to the potential regulatory approval of our first product, we anticipate an increase in payroll and related expenses as a result of our preparation for commercial operations, especially as it relates to sales and marketing.

 

Research and development costs

 

Research and development costs consist principally of internal and external costs incurred for the development of our products and include:

 

consulting costs charged to us by various external contract research organizations we contract with to conduct preclinical studies and engineering studies;

 

costs associated with regulatory filings;

 

cost of laboratory supplies and acquiring, developing and manufacturing preclinical prototypes;

 

product design engineering studies; and

 

rental expense for facilities maintained solely for research and development purposes.

 

Research and development costs are expensed as incurred.

 

From June 26, 2014 (inception) through September 30, 2016, we incurred approximately $1.6 million in research and development costs. We plan to increase our research and development expenses for the foreseeable future as we continue development of our products. Our current and planned research and development activities include the following:

 

completion of engineering design studies for our five products;

 

finalization of engineering designs and documentation supporting our five products;

 

additional engineering and preclinical studies through our contract research suppliers;

 

preparation and filing of regulatory submissions with the FDA for our five products; and

 

establishing and documenting manufacturing processes for our five products.

 

The successful development of our products is highly uncertain and subject to numerous risks including, but not limited to:

 

the scope, rate of progress and expense of our research and development activities;

 

the scope, terms and timing of obtaining regulatory clearances;

 

 24 
Table of Contents   

 

the expense of filing, prosecuting, defending and enforcing patent claims;

 

the continued access to expertise through outsourced suppliers for engineering and manufacturing; and

 

the cost, timing and our ability to manufacture sufficient prototype and commercial supplies for our products.

 

Income Taxes

 

For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, we recognized a deferred tax benefit which was fully offset by a corresponding valuation allowance. We have evaluated the positive and negative evidence bearing upon the realizability of our deferred tax assets. Based on our history of operating losses, we have concluded it is more likely than not that the benefit of our deferred tax assets will not be realized. Accordingly, we have provided a full valuation allowance for deferred tax assets as of September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.

Total formation and operating costs  $1,350,248   $274,371   $1,075,877    392%

 

In general, the higher formation and operating costs during the three months ended September 30, 2016 is principally driven by additional costs from the broader scale of our operations during the three months ended September 30, 2016 as well as increased costs for investor relations and public company reporting requirements when compared to the three months ended September 30, 2015.

 

Our formation and operational costs for the three months ended September 30, 2016 were $1,350,248 and for the three months ended September 30, 2015 were $274,371. The increased expense of $1,075,877 for the three months ended September 30, 2016 is principally due to higher compensation costs of $138,869, increased stock-based compensation expense of $292,084, increased outside professional services of $454,468, increased facility and office related costs of  $45,879 related to our leased corporate office space, and board of directors fees of $72,500.

 

The increase in outside professional services during the three months ended September 30, 2016 of $454,468 is principally comprised of higher consulting and professional fees of $151,767 (which includes consulting fees incurred of $75,000 under the HCP /Advisors consulting agreement, $45,000 related to the HCFP /Strategy Advisors and Swartwood Hesse agreements, and $37,500 related to the initial payment under the consulting agreement with Michael Glennon); along with increased investor relations and marketing costs of $115,311, increased accounting, legal, printing, and stockholder related costs of $155,326 associated with SEC reporting and public company requirements, and increased regulatory consulting costs of $37,478, offset by lower legal fees related to intellectual property matters of $5,414. During the three months ended September 30, 2015 the Company did not incur costs under the HCP /Advisors, HCFP /Strategy Advisors, and Glennon consulting agreements or comparable costs for investor relations and compliance with SEC reporting and public company requirements.

Research and development costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 were $1,112,616 and for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 were $347,982. The increase in costs of $764,634 during the three months ended September 30, 2016 was due to the Company being engaged in the development of all of our products while during the three months ended September 30, 2015 we incurred limited research and development costs on certain of our products.

 

We incurred $168,388 of compensation expense classified as research and development expenses, principally related to the services provided by our Chief Medical Officer during the nine months ended September 30, 2016. Additionally, we issued stock options, concurrent with the closing of its IPO on April 28, 2016, which resulted in the recognition of stock-based compensation expense classified as research and development expense in the amount of $52,396 during the nine months ended September 30, 2016.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We have incurred net losses of $3,940,337 and $1,045,848 for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Net cash used in operating activities was $3,251,887 and $601,579 during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. At September 30, 2016, we had an accumulated deficit of $5,991,321, working capital of $1,124,232 and cash of $1,788,650. We anticipate incurring losses for the next several years as we complete the development of our products and file for and request regulatory clearances to market our products.

 

We do not expect to generate positive cash flows in the near future. To date, from June 26, 2014 (inception), we have financed our operations principally through an aggregate of $6.3 million of equity financing resulting from private offerings of our common stock and warrants and our IPO on April 28, 2016, including a total of $2.1 million of net proceeds through private offerings of our equity prior to our IPO, and approximately $4.2 million of net cash proceeds resulting from our April 28, 2016 IPO.

 

We believe our existing cash will be sufficient to fund our currently anticipated operating expenses and capital expenditure requirements into early 2017. We have based this estimate on assumptions which may prove to be wrong, and we could utilize our available capital resources sooner than we currently expect. Accordingly, we will need to raise additional funds to support our operating and capital needs starting in early 2017, or sooner. We have engaged financial advisory firms to assist us with our financing efforts, however, there is no assurance the financial advisory firms will be successful in these efforts.

 

We may seek to sell additional equity and /or incur indebtedness. The issuance of additional equity and /or debt securities may result in additional dilution to our stockholders. If we raise additional funds through the issue of debt securities or preferred stock, these securities could have rights senior to those of our common stock and could contain covenants which may restrict our operations. We may also seek funding through collaborations or other similar arrangements with third parties, including larger medical device companies. If we are unable to raise sufficient additional capital we may need to substantially curtail our planned operations.

Critical Accounting Policies and Significant Judgments and Estimates

 

This discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based on our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or U.S. GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reported period. In accordance with U.S. GAAP, we base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions we believe are reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

Please see the “Critical Accounting Policies and Significant Judgments and Estimates” section of our 2015 Annual Report on Form 10-K as filed with the SEC and which is incorporated herein by reference, for full detail. Since the date of those financial statements, there have been no changes to the Company’s significant accounting policies, other than the adoption of a policy for equipment and stock-based compensation, including the early adoption of Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-09, as noted in the accompanying (unaudited) condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards

 

Except for the early adoption of ASU 2016-09 as described below, we did not adopt any new accounting pronouncements during the nine months ended September 30, 2016 that had a material effect on our financial statements.

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) and subsequently issued additional updates amending the guidance contained in Topic 606 thereby affecting the guidance contained in ASU 2014-09. ASU 2014-09 and the subsequent Topic 606 updates will supersede and replace nearly all existing U.S. GAAP revenue recognition guidance. The core principle of ASU 2014-09 is to recognize revenue when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount equal to the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled for those goods and services. ASU 2014-09 defines a five step process to achieve this core principle, and in doing so, more judgment and estimates may be required within the revenue recognition process than are required under existing U.S. GAAP. The standard is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods therein, using either of the following transition methods: (i) a full retrospective approach reflecting the application of the standard in each prior reporting period with the option to elect certain practical expedients, or (ii) a retrospective approach with the cumulative effect of initially adopting the standard recognized at the date of adoption (which includes additional footnote disclosures). The Company is evaluating the guidance in ASU 2014-09 and the subsequent Topic 606 updates and has not yet determined what, if any, effect this guidance will have on its results of operations or financial condition.

 

In April 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing (“ASU 2016-10”). The amendments in ASU 2016-10 clarify the following two aspects of Topic 606: (a) identifying performance obligations; and (b) the licensing implementation guidance. The amendments do not change the core principle of the guidance in Topic 606. The effective date and transition requirements for the amendments are the same as the effective date and transition requirements in Topic 606. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2018, although early adoption is permitted beginning January 1, 2017. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this guidance on its consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-08, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Principal versus Agent Considerations (“ASU 2016-08”). The amendments are intended to improve the operability and understandability of the implementation guidance on principal versus agent considerations by amending certain existing illustrative examples and adding additional illustrative examples to assist in the application of the guidance. The effective date and transition requirements for the amendments are the same as the effective date and transition requirements in Topic 606. The guidance is effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2018, although early adoption is permitted beginning January 1, 2017. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this guidance on its consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, which amended the guidance of FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic 230, Statement of Cash Flows (ASC 230) on the classification of certain cash receipts and payments. The primary purpose of ASU 2016-15 is to reduce the diversity in practice which has resulted from a lack of consistent principles on this topic. The amendments of ASU 2016-15 add or clarify guidance on eight specific cash flow issues, including debt prepayment or debt extinguishment costs, settlement of zero-coupon debt instruments, contingent consideration payments made after a business combination, proceeds from the settlement of insurance claims, proceeds from the settlement of corporate-owned life insurance policies, distributions received from equity method investees, beneficial interests in securitization transactions, and separately identifiable cash flows and application of the predominance principle. The guidance of ASU 2016-15 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is evaluating the impact of this guidance on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) (“ASU 2016-02”), which establishes a right-of-use (ROU) model requiring a lessee to recognize a ROU asset and a lease liability for all leases with terms greater-than 12 months. Leases will be classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the income statement. The new standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods with those fiscal years. A modified retrospective transition approach is required for leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements, with certain practical expedients available. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this guidance on its consolidated financial position, results of operations, and cash flows.

Contractual Obligations

 

Other than noted below, there have been no material changes since December 31, 2015 to our contractual obligations from the information provided in Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”, included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015, other than payments made or received in the ordinary course of business.

 

The Company leases space for its corporate office, which initially provided for two consecutive six month terms beginning on February 1, 2016, rent payments of $9,500 per month and the option to cancel the lease agreement at the end of the initial six-month term at the election of the Company. Subsequently, the lease agreement was amended to add approximately 200 sq. ft. of rentable office space at an additional rate of $4,400 per month; and, extended the lease term through May 31, 2017. Total rent expense under this office space lease arrangement for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 was $41,406 and $92,656, respectively. At September 30, 2016, the Company’s aggregate future commitment under the amended lease was $111,200.

The Proposed Pavilion Agreement had been expected to commence on the date the Company’s IPO was consummated.

Additionally, Dr. deGuzman was paid an initial bonus of $50,000, for services provided before the agreement’s effective date.

As compensation for his services, Mr. Glennon will receive a monthly retainer of $12,500 and an initial payment of $37,500 for past services upon execution of the Consulting Agreement, with the initial payment recognized as an accrued expense at September 30, 2016. The Glennon Consulting Agreement may be terminated by either party upon 30 days’ prior written notice, except either party may terminate the Glennon Consulting Agreement immediately for cause (which includes an uncured material breach of the agreement). The Glennon Consulting Agreement also will terminate immediately if the parties agree to the employment of Mr. Glennon on a full-time basis. The Glennon Consulting Agreement contains covenants for the protection of the Company’s confidential information and a mutual indemnity provision for claims arising out of the services.

JOBS Act

 

We are an “emerging growth company,” as defined in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (JOBS Act), and are eligible to take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies, including, but not limited to, only two years of audited financial statements in addition to any required unaudited interim financial statements with correspondingly reduced “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” disclosure, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (Sarbanes-Oxley Act), reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in our periodic reports and proxy or information statements, and not being required to adopt certain new and revised accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies. We have irrevocably elected to avail ourselves of the extended time for the adoption of new or revised f accounting standards, and, therefore, will not be subject to the same new or revised accounting standards as public companies that are not emerging growth companies.

 

Off-Balance sheet arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements, as defined by applicable SEC regulations.

Not applicable to smaller reporting companies.

 

Item 4. Controls and procedures

 

Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures

 

Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of September 30, 2016, the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

 

Based on our evaluation, we believe that our disclosure controls and procedures as of the date of our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q have been designed and are functioning effectively to provide reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. We believe that a controls system, no matter how well designed and operated, cannot provide absolute assurance that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.

 

Our independent registered public accounting firm has not performed an evaluation of our internal control over financial reporting during any period in accordance with the provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. As a result, it is possible, had our independent registered public accounting firm performed an evaluation of our internal control over financial reporting in accordance with the provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, material weaknesses and significant control deficiencies may have been identified. However, for as long as we remain an “emerging growth company” as defined in the JOBS Act, we intend to take advantage of the exemption permitting us not to comply with the requirement that our independent registered public accounting firm provide an attestation on the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Changes in internal control over financial reporting

 

No change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) occurred during the period covered by this report that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II.   OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 2.   Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds.

 

Sales of Unregistered Securities

 

There were no sales of unregistered securities during the nine months ended September 30, 2016.

 

Use of Proceeds from Initial Public Offering

 

On April 28, 2016, we closed the IPO, selling 1,060,000 units, with each unit consisting of one share of common stock and one warrant at a public offering price of $5.00 per unit for an aggregate offering of $5.3 million. The offer and sale of all of the units in the offering were registered under the Securities Act pursuant to registration statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333- 203569), which was declared effective by the SEC on January 29, 2016. The offering commenced on January 29, 2016 and did not terminate until the Company and its selling agent, The Benchmark Company, LLC, declared the offering closed on a “best efforts” basis on April 28, 2016.

 

We received cash net proceeds from the offering of approximately $4.2 million, after deducting cash selling agent discounts and commissions and other cash offering expenses. None of the selling agent discounts and commissions or other offering expenses were incurred or paid to directors or officers of ours or their associates or to persons owning 10% or more of our common stock or to any affiliates of ours.

 

There has been no material change in our planned use of the net proceeds from the offering as described in our final prospectus filed with the SEC pursuant to Rule 424(b)(4) under the Securities Act.
