Note 2 – Liquidity, Plan of Operations and Going Concern
The Company has experienced net losses and negative cash flows from operations each period since its inception. Through September 30, 2023, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $170,259. The Company’s net loss was $17,628 for the nine months ended September 30, 2023.
The Company has been engaged in developing 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 U.S. 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 September 30, 2023, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $6,407, marketable debt securities of $11,809 and restricted cash of $250. The Company believes the cash and cash equivalents and marketable debt securities on hand are sufficient to fund planned operations into the third quarter of 2024, but not beyond. As a result, substantial doubt exists about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon control over its operating expenses, anticipated proceeds from future sales of common stock through the At-The-Market Sales Agreement (“ATM”) with BTIG, LLC. and securing additional financing. While the Company believes in the viability of this strategy and believes the actions presently being taken by the Company provide the opportunity for it to continue as a going concern, there can be no assurance the Company will be successful in its implementation. In particular, utilization of the ATM may not be viable due to market conditions and new financing may not be available on acceptable terms, or at all. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.
