|Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation||
Basis of presentation and principles of consolidation
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the consolidated accounts of Holdings and its wholly owned subsidiaries, BioPharma, and Nanotechnologies. The accompanying 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 reflect the operations of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
The Company’s significant accounting policies are described in Note 3 within the Company’s Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements included in the Company’s 2019 Form 10-K.
In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared coronavirus COVID-19 a global pandemic. This contagious disease outbreak, which has continued to spread, and any related adverse public health developments, has adversely affected workforces, economics, and financial markets globally, potentially leading to an economic downturn.
The Company has been actively monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact globally. The financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2020 were not significantly impacted by COVID-19. However, the Company cannot predict the impact of the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic on future results or the Company’s ability to raise capital due to a variety of factors, including the continued good health of Company employees, the ability of suppliers to continue to operate and deliver, the ability of the Company to maintain operations, any further government and/or public actions taken in response to the pandemic and ultimately the length of the pandemic.
|Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements||
Recently adopted accounting pronouncements
In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, “Changes to Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurements”, which will improve the effectiveness of disclosure requirements for recurring and nonrecurring fair value measurements. The standard removes, modifies, and adds certain disclosure requirements, and is effective for fiscal years, and interim` periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. The Company adopted the guidance on January 1, 2020. The adoption did not have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
In November 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-18, “Collaboration Arrangements (Topic 808): Clarifying the Interaction between Topic 808 and Topic 606”, to clarify when ASC 606 should be used for collaborative arrangements when the counterparty is a customer. The Guidance precludes an entity from presenting consideration from a transaction in a collaborative arrangement as revenue from the contracts with the customers if the counterparty is not a customer for that transaction. The guidance is effective for public entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim period therein. The Company adopted the guidance on January 1, 2020. The adoption did not have a material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.
