NOTE B - Going Concern and Plan of Operation
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles, which contemplate continuation of the Company as a going concern.
The Company has experienced net losses and negative cash flows from operations each period since its inception. Through December 31, 2014, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $14 million. The Company’s operations have been financed primarily through the sale of equity securities. The Company’s net loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2014 was approximately $10.2 million.
The Company has been engaged in developing MAT9001 since 2011. To date, the Company has not generated any revenue from MAT9001 and the Company expects to incur significant expenses to complete clinical work and to prepare MAT9001 for Phase III trials in the United States. The Company may never be able to obtain regulatory approval for the marketing of MAT9001 in any indication in the United States or internationally and even if the Company is able to commercialize MAT9001 or any other product candidate, there can be no assurance that the Company will generate significant revenues or ever achieve profitability.
Assuming the Company obtains FDA approval for MAT9001, which the Company does not expect to receive until 2017 at the earliest, the Company expects that its expenses will increase if the Company reaches commercial launch of MAT9001. The Company also expects that its research and development expenses will continue to increase as it moves forward for other indications for MAT9001 and diversifies its R&D portfolio. Furthermore, the Company expects that its research and development expenses will significantly increase as its MAT8800 discovery program progresses and advances to preclinical and clinical trials with one or more product candidates. In addition, on January 29, 2015 the Company acquired Aquarius Biotechnologies Inc. which will require additional investment to develop the technology acquired from Aquarius (please see Note J Subsequent Events). As a result, the Company expects to continue to incur substantial losses for the foreseeable future, and that these losses will be increasing.
The Company will need to secure additional capital in order to fund operations and to initiate and complete its planned clinical and operational activities related to further development of MAT9001 and the product candidates and technologies that the Company recently acquired from Aquarius. The Company can provide no assurances that such additional financing will be available on favorable terms, or at all. Without such additional funding, the Company is anticipating that the existing cash balance on hand at December 31, 2014 would not be sufficient to meet operating activities for the next twelve months. The Company’s recurring losses from operations, and need for additional funding, raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern, and as a result, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm included an explanatory paragraph in its report on the Company’s financial statements as of and for the year ended December 31, 2014 with respect to this uncertainty.
