Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") for Form 10-Q. Accordingly, certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. The Balance Sheet at December 31, 2019 has been derived from the Company’s audited financial statements included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 31, 2020.
In the opinion of management, these financial statements reflect all normal recurring, and other adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2019. Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of operating results for an entire fiscal year or any other future periods.
Reverse Stock Split
On August 15, 2019, the Company effected a reverse stock split of the outstanding shares of its common stock by a ratio of one-for-ten, and its common stock began trading on the Nasdaq Capital Market on a split-adjusted basis on August 20, 2019. The par value of the Company’s common stock remained unchanged at $0.001 per share after the reverse stock split. All share amounts, per share data, share prices, exercise prices and conversion rates set forth in these notes and the accompanying financial statements have, where applicable, been adjusted retroactively to reflect the reverse stock split.
Liquidity and Going Concern
As reflected in the accompanying condensed financial statements, the Company had a net loss of $6.7 million and used $2.3 million of cash in operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. At September 30, 2020, the Company had net working capital of $3.4 million and the Company’s principal source of liquidity consisted of $3.8 million of cash and cash equivalents.
The Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, in its report on the Company’s 2019 financial statements, raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. On August 5, 2020 the Company completed an Early Warrant Exercise Transaction (as defined below). See Note 9. The Early Warrant Exercise Transaction raised net proceeds of $2.5 million, thereby alleviating the substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for at least the next twelve months from the date of issuance of these financial statements.
The accompanying condensed financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on its ability to raise additional capital and to develop profitable operations through implementation of its current business initiatives, however, there can be no assurances that the Company will be able to do so. Additionally, the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has caused significant disruptions to the global financial markets which could further impact the Company’s ability to raise additional capital. If external financing sources are not available or are inadequate to fund operations, or the technology under development is not capable of generating sustainable revenues in the future, the Company will be required to reduce operating costs, which could jeopardize future strategic initiatives and business plans, or cease operations.
The Company recognizes revenue and related cost of revenue in accordance with FASB ASC 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC 606) and, as applicable, with the guidance issued by the FASB in June 2018 for the recipients of grants.
Currently, the Company recognizes grant revenue and cost of grant revenue only. Government contracts, including grants, are agreements that generally provide the Company with cost reimbursement for certain types of development activities over a contractually defined period. Grant revenue is recognized in the period during which the Company incurs the related costs, provided that the Company has incurred the cost in accordance with the specifications and work plans determined between the Company and the government entity.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, the Company recognized $154,302 of grant revenue and cost of grant revenue. The grant revenue relates to a $1.2 million subcontract with Diversified Technologies, Inc. (DTI), signed in June 2020, to supply B-TRAN™ devices as part of a two-year contract awarded to DTI by the United States Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA) for the development and demonstration of a B-TRAN™ enabled high efficiency direct current circuit breaker. The Company accounts for this subcontract as an exchange transaction under applicable guidance. No grant revenue was recognized in the nine months ended September 30, 2019. Unbilled grant receivables were $28,623 at September 30, 2020 and were included in accounts receivable, net.
Earnings Per Share
In accordance with ASC 260, shares issuable for little or no cash consideration are considered outstanding common shares and included in the computation of basic earnings per share. As such, the Company includes pre-funded warrants to purchase shares of common stock and warrant shares held in abeyance in its computation of earnings per share. The pre-funded warrants were issued in November 2019 with an exercise price of $0.001. See Note 7. The warrant shares held in abeyance were a result of the Early Warrant Exercise Transaction (as defined below). See Note 9.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standard, if adopted, would have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.
