Note 11 – Stockholders’ Equity


Common Stock


On February 8, 2022, the Company issued 400,000 unregistered shares of its common stock to Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey (“Rutgers”), as partial consideration pursuant to the Second Amended and Restated Exclusive License Agreement between the Company and Rutgers. The agreement provides for (1) royalties on a tiered basis between low single digits and the mid-single digits of net sales of products using such licensed technology, (2) a one-time sales milestone fee of $100 when and if sales of products using the licensed technology reach the specified sales threshold and (3) an annual license fee of $50 over the term of the license agreement. There was also a reduction in the consideration paid to Rutgers in the event of a sublicense to a third party of the exclusive patent rights granted pursuant to the Agreement. The Company recorded a $291 research and development expense related to the issuance of the 400,000 shares based on the closing price of the Company’s common stock of $0.728 on the date of issuance.


For the nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company did not sell any shares of its common stock under its At-The-Market Sales Agreement with BTIG, LLC.




As of September 30, 2023, the Company did not have any outstanding warrants to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock. The following table summarizes the changes in warrants outstanding during 2022 and for the nine months ended September 30, 2023:


Outstanding at December 31, 2021     988  
Exercised     (400 )

Basic and diluted net loss per common share


During the three and nine months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, diluted loss per common share is the same as basic loss per common share because, as the Company incurred a net loss during each period presented, the potentially dilutive securities from the assumed exercise of all outstanding stock options and warrants, would have an anti-dilutive effect. The following outstanding shares of potentially dilutive securities were excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share because including them would have been anti-dilutive as of September 30, 2023 and 2022:


    As of September 30,  
    2023     2022  
Stock options     33,234       27,729  
Warrants           988  
Total     33,234       28,717
