Liquidity and Financial Condition

The Company expects to continue to incur losses and will require additional capital to advance its product candidates through development to commercialization. For the six month period ended June 30, 2018 the Company incurred a net loss of approximately $5.8 million and used approximately $7.5 million in cash for operations. As of June 30, 2018, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $15.4 million, working capital of approximately $13.8 million and an accumulated deficit of approximately $184.6 million. The Company believes that its cash and cash equivalents at June 30, 2018 will be sufficient to fund operations into the fourth quarter of 2019, based upon current spending rates and with the inclusion of the approximately $3.5 million raised in the July 2018 Registered Direct Offering and the July 2018 Private Placement. The Company will require additional capital to fund operations beyond that point. To meet its capital needs, the Company intends to raise additional capital through debt or equity financings, collaborations, partnerships or other strategic transactions. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to complete any such transaction on acceptable terms or otherwise. The failure of the Company to obtain sufficient funds on acceptable terms when needed could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, results of operations and financial condition. These conditions raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. Accordingly, the consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a basis that assumes the Company will continue as a going concern and which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the ordinary course of business.

On January 23, 2018, the Company received notice (the Notice) from the Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (Nasdaq) that the Company was not in compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2), as the minimum bid price of the Company’s common stock had been below $1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days. On May 24, 2018, the Company implemented a one-for-five reverse split of its issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock (the Reverse Stock Split), as authorized at the annual meeting of stockholders on May 23, 2018. The Reverse Stock Split became effective on May 24, 2018 at 5:00 pm and the Company’s common stock began trading on Nasdaq on a post-split basis at the open of business on May 25, 2018. As of a result of the Reverse Stock Split, every five shares of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock were combined into one share of its common stock, except to the extent that the Reverse Stock Split resulted in any of the Company’s stockholders owning a fractional share, which was rounded up to the next highest whole share. In connection with the Reverse Stock Split, there was no change in the nominal par value per share of $0.001. The Reverse Stock Split was effectuated in order to increase the per share trading price of the Company’s common stock to satisfy the $1.00 minimum bid price requirement for continued listing on Nasdaq. On June 11, 2018, the Company received written notice from Nasdaq notifying the Company that the closing bid price of the Company's common stock had been at $1.00 per share or greater for a minimum of ten consecutive business days and accordingly, the Company had regained compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2). All share and per share amounts of common stock, options and warrants in the accompanying financial statements and related notes, have been restated for all periods to give retroactive effect to the Reverse Stock Split. Accordingly, the Condensed Consolidated Statement of Stockholders’ Equity reflects the impact of the Reverse Stock Split by reclassifying from “Common Stock” to “Additional paid-in capital” an amount equal to the par value of the decreased shares resulting from the Reverse Stock Split.

Nasdaq has the authority, pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(b)(1), to delist the Company’s common stock if its stockholders’ equity falls below $2.5 million. As of June 30, 2018, the Company’s stockholders’ equity was approximately $9.4 million. If the Company’s stockholders’ equity is hereafter reduced below $2.5 million as a result of operating losses or for other reasons, the Company will fail to meet Nasdaq’s stockholders’ equity requirement. If that occurs, or if the Company is unable to demonstrate to Nasdaq’s satisfaction that it will be able to sustain compliance with this requirement, Nasdaq may delist the Company’s common stock. In addition, even if the Company regains technical compliance with the stockholders’ equity requirement, it will have to continue to meet other objective and subjective listing requirements to continue to be listed on Nasdaq, including the requirement that the Company’s common stock continues to trade above $1.00.

The Company is actively monitoring its stockholders’ equity and will consider any and all options available to it to maintain compliance. There can be no assurance, however, that the Company will be able to maintain compliance and meet Nasdaq’s minimum stockholders’ equity requirements.
