Note 2 – Liquidity and Plan of Operations
The Company has experienced net losses and negative cash flows from operations each period since its inception. Through March 31, 2022, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $137.6 million. The Company’s net loss was approximately $6.0 million and $5.0 million for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, respectively.
The Company has been engaged in developing LYPDISO (formerly MAT9001) as well as its lipid nanocrystal (“LNC”) platform delivery technology and a pipeline of associated product candidates, including MAT2203 and MAT2501, since 2011. To date, the Company has not obtained regulatory approval for any of its product candidates nor generated any revenue from product sales, and the Company expects to incur significant expenses to complete development of its product candidates. The Company may never be able to obtain regulatory approval for the marketing of any of its product candidates in any indication in the United States or internationally and there can be no assurance that the Company will generate revenues or ever achieve profitability.
If the Company obtains Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) approval for one or more of its product candidates, the Company expects that its expenses will continue to increase once the Company reaches commercial launch. The Company also expects that its research and development expenses will continue to increase as it moves forward with additional clinical studies for its current product candidates and development of additional product candidates. As a result, the Company expects to continue to incur substantial losses for the foreseeable future, and that these losses will be increasing.
As of March 31, 2022, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $19.3 million, marketable securities of approximately $24.5 million and restricted cash of approximately $0.3 million. The Company believes the cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities on hand are sufficient to fund planned operations through 2023.
