Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned and majority-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation. The Company holds a majority ownership interest and has controlling financial interest in Lucid Diagnostics Inc. and Solys Diagnostics Inc., with the corresponding noncontrolling interest included as a separate component of consolidated stockholders’ equity (deficit), including the recognition in the consolidated statement of the net loss attributable to the noncontrolling interest based on the respective minority ownership interest of each respective entity.

 

The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2021, which has been derived from audited consolidated financial statements, and the unaudited 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 United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regarding interim financial reporting. As permitted under SEC 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, 2020 has been derived from audited consolidated financial statements at such date but does not include all the information required by U.S. GAAP for complete consolidated financial statements. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the Company’s annual consolidated financial statements, and in the opinion of management, include all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s consolidated financial information.

 

The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021 or for any other interim period or for any other future periods. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and related consolidated financial information should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto as of and for the year ended December 31, 2020 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 15, 2021.

 

All amounts in these accompanying notes to the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in thousands, if not otherwise noted as being presented in millions, except for shares and per share amounts.

Use of Estimates

Use of Estimates

 

In preparing unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP, management is required 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 consolidated financial statements, as well as the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Due to inherent uncertainty involved in making estimates, actual results reported in future periods may be affected by changes in these estimates. On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates its estimates and assumptions. These estimates and assumptions include valuing equity securities in share-based payment arrangements and estimating the fair value of financial instruments recorded as liabilities. In addition, management’s assessment of the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern involves the estimation of the amount and timing of future cash inflows and outflows.

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

Recently Adopted Accounting Standards

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued its Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2020-06, Debt – Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815 – 40), (“ASU 2020-06”). ASU 2020-06 simplifies the accounting for certain financial instruments with characteristics of liabilities and equity, including convertible instruments and contracts on an entity’s own equity. The ASU2020-06 amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023, and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company’s adoption of the ASU 2020-06 guidance as of January 1, 2021, had no effect on its unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-12,“Income Taxes: Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes”, (“ASU 2019-12”). The guidance of ASU 2019-12 removes certain exceptions for recognizing deferred taxes for investments, performing intra-period allocation, and calculating income taxes in interim periods, and adds revised guidance to reduce complexity in certain areas, including recognizing deferred taxes for tax goodwill and allocating taxes to members of a consolidated group. Adoption of the guidance of ASU 2019-12 is required for annual and interim financial statements beginning after December 15, 2020. The Company’s adoption of the ASU 2019-12 guidance as of January 1, 2021 had no effect on the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements.
